Futures trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
My name is Trisha Ogilvie and I started trading the stock market in 1999 and currently I trade the Eminis. I have had a few different careers over the years but none that I have enjoyed as much. I was an LPGA Teaching Golf Professional for a long time and had a successful career but I had always been interested in the market for as long as I can remember.
No one in my family or anyone I knew was trading so I had no idea where to start so I had to figure it out on my own. I had an accidental trading success in 1999; I had no idea what I was doing. I didn't even know what a chart was or anything at all about the market. I bought a popular stock and then forgot all about it. About 6 months later I looked it up and I had tripled my money. I thought to myself, "Wow that was easy, this will be a piece of cake." Boy was I naive!
I committed to doing something every day to learn the market, I never missed a day. In the beginning I had taken some good courses and programs and also some not so good. I continued to trade equities and work a job until 2005, that is when I made the switch to the Eminis and I was able to make the transition to day trading full time.
In November 2008 I started to share a few of the set ups that had worked well for me and one thing led to another and now I not only trade but educate traders. Every day I am so grateful that I get to do what I love! My hope is that you get to do the same.
