EP 187 · My First Year Trading Full-Time: Stock Scalper, Josh Evans
Recently, I thought it may be an interesting exercise to have a few less-experienced traders on the show. On Twitter, I wrote that I’d like to chat with someone who:
1. Has just completed their 1st year of full-time trading
2. Started with a minimum of $20,000
3. Is or isn’t profitable (not important), as long as he/she is taking deliberate action to improve
From this tweet I received many DM’s for consideration, and after filtering through them, I’ve asked several people who fit this general description to share their experiences on the podcast…
The first cab off the rank is Josh Evans; 30-something years of age, living in Melbourne (Australia), and actively trading ASX equities.
This conversation with Josh follows his progression from newbie investor to intraday trader—including his motivation and preparation for going full-time. A few specific things which have helped Josh to get his equity curve pointing in the right direction. Plus, deliberate processes Josh has implemented for improvement, one piece of advice he received that made a difference, and that’s not all!
