Hey there, Genius Nation. I want to ask you a question. What are some of the best times of your life? Can you think of any? I guess it really depends on how old you are, right? If you're younger, maybe the best time that you can remember was when you got your driver's license and you went out for your first drive, right?

Interview With Trader Mike Minnick - 18

2/18/2018
More
After 50 years of doing it "the way you are supposed to do it" Mike's financial planner told him he did not have enough money to retire on time. And there was nothing he could do about it. So Mike took things into his own hands, and decided to trade in his spare time. In the past three years Mike has been successful enough to not only retire on time, but retire EARLY if he chooses to. Or, pretty soon, he will be making enough from his trading to equal his salary as a college professor,...

Option Selling Defined - 015

1/20/2018
More
I realized that we have done many episodes already where we talk about why you should be selling options, but never gave an explanation. Option sellers trade in a market neutral way. So you don’t need to market to go up or down. You can trade it when it doesn’t even move. Also, option sellers have probability on their side. So we do trades that have for example a 70%, 80%, or even 90% probability of working out in our favor. These calculations are done using sophisticated statistics and...

Around the end of every year and beginning of the next, the world is flooded with folks giving their predictions about what will occur in the coming year. Some of these actually come true.

Which is why I hate predictions. Don’t give me a guess. Give me some real information that I can use to make an...

Many of the same skills that you need to play good poker are the same that you need to trade well. Something I realized was that a lot of people who are really, really good traders were good poker players at the same time, because they had the same types of skills. Currently, the best poker player in the world is a guy named Phil Hellmuth. Phil, and he’s also known as the poker brat. In fact, he’s got a book out called the poker brat.
