EP 069: How an aggressive trader thinks, uses options, and made $1.4M on a single TSLA trade – John Carter

John is an options trader (and also futures, to a slightly lesser extent), he’s been trading for around about 25 years now. His typical holding time for any given trade is just a couple days, and he classifies himself as an aggressive trader – which I think you’ll pick up on pretty quickly.

In this interview, you’ll hear I ask John about the multiple boom ‘n bust cycles he endured over the space of about 8 years before gaining real consistency. I also ask, is a high risk tolerance essential for becoming a successful trader?

Then we get into some talk about options, and John has some really great advice for those who are still trying to find their feet. Additionally, we talk about indicators and technical analysis, and we go step-by-step through John’s million dollar TSLA trade.

Love the hip hop music intro. Trading in the 21st century has become so gangsta.

TheWizardJeff says:

Great interview, strengthens some of my own beliefs/ideas.

Bill Smit says:

Aggressive,  sounds like a Consistent Loser.  Do you steal home when the ball is just bouncing around the Catchers Feet? That's aggressive but never works.  I don't believe this guy can beat a Fixed Central Bank/Manipulated market.  Cant do it in Gold or Silver and Forex isn't even the Wild West its the Devil Den.  People are full of shit.  All the "Day Trading Opium Dens" have shut down here in the West.   The Landlord could not afford the Metal Detector in the Lease and got sick of having to upgrade his Bullet Proof Vest.  Bob, Denver, Salt Lake, Las Vegas.
