Watch The Interview With Michael
In the interview Michael discusses his journey and trading strategies. He has been trading for five to six years, learning from Timothy Sykes and his student Tim Grittani. He focuses exclusively on short selling penny stocks, looking for over-extended top percentage gainers and trading the first red day or shorting into previous resistance levels.
When asked about how he determines when to sell or buy, Michael explains that he never knows for sure when the top or bottom is in, but looks for indicators like hard cracks and resistance levels. He also emphasizes the importance of cutting losses quickly, as taught by Sykes and Grittani.
Experience with Trade The Pool
Michael praises the program, calling it “monumental” and a great opportunity for traders to prove their skills and gain access to capital to make profits. He mentions that he had to adjust his trading strategy to scale into his positions, but sees the benefits of doing so.
