    Vico:

    Victorio started trading with George Papazov in 2015/2016 as an early member of TRADEPRO Academy, after his dad happened to meet him in a Starbucks (he may have spilled coffee on him). Victorio was a lost college student at the time in Engineering, hating it but not knowing what to do. After befriending George, he was convinced to get into trading and switched his degree to Financial Services. Victorio traded throughout college, and ended up paying for some of his schooling through options swing trading using some of his government loan (blowing 50% of it at first)

    *Note from Victorio and 2 Bulls: Please don't risk your tuition on options!*

    While still in college, he then transitioned to futures day trading. There was a big learning curve in futures, but he eventually started making money about one year in (2018). While Victorio still trades futures here and there, he found that he was risking a little too much for comfort. Forever a student, he still works on his futures craft but recently flipped back to options. He day trade options now will pretty good success and swing trades common stock, with a focus on large caps and growth companies.

    If you'd like to hear more about Victorio's trading strategies and ideas, he frequently posts on Twitter and is active in TRADEPRO Academy's Discord Server

    About the Panelists:

    Baba Yaga:

    Solving problems, helping set goals and refining processes is the bulk of Baba's passion. He does that in many contexts, ranging from non-profits to real estate and everything in between. He focuses on market structure through the lens of TPO charting and executes based on volume, misplaced large orders and Delta. He loves the opening range breakout and typically trades the market from the "inside out."

    Follow Baba on Twitter

    Mr. Banks:

    Working as a commercial banker and trading on the side helped Mr. Banks develop his trading style into what it is today. As a banker, his main thought is: “What’s the worst that can happen and how can I mitigate that risk?” Taking that same thought process into trading has made him focus more on his trade setups. Trade with confidence, trade what the market gives and limit the unknown factors.

As a power lineman, husband, and proud father of two wonderful daughters, Joel brings a unique blend of kindness, support, and motivation to the Band of Traders community.

    Joel's venture into trading wasn't merely a financial pursuit; it was a desire to actively engage with the market beyond traditional buy-and-hold ETF investing. Trading, particularly in futures, became more than just a financial endeavor for Joel. It evolved into a genuine passion, a game he enjoys playing, regardless of the monetary outcomes.

    What sets Joel apart is not just his passion, but his willingness to open up and share his struggles. In the often-challenging landscape of trading, Joel's authenticity and transparency create a supportive environment within the Band of Traders community. Beyond the charts and numbers, Joel has discovered a sense of camaraderie that extends beyond mere acquaintances – to what he now considers a brotherhood.

  • Andrew Einhorn, Levelfields.ai CEO: Event Driven Investing

    Andrew Einhorn, CEO of Level Fields AI, stops by the shop to share his early trading experiences, his work in environmental studies and consulting, and how those experiences led to the creation of Level Fields AI and its event monitoring system. The conversation highlights the importance of events in shaping market behavior and the need for data-driven decision-making. A case study on the GameStop short squeeze demonstrates the power of event-driven analysis in trading and explores the role of activist investors in driving share price movement and company strategy. The use of AI in identifying successful activists and differentiating rumors from confirmed information is discussed, as well as the future of AI and its potential applications in various industries, such as healthcare and energy.

    About the Panelists:

    Mr. Banks:

    Working as a commercial banker and trading on the side helped Mr. Banks develop his trading style into what it is today. As a banker, his main thought is: “What’s the worst that can happen and how can I mitigate that risk?” Taking that same thought process into trading has made him focus more on his trade setups. Trade with confidence, trade what the market gives and limit the unknown factors.

    Perdue:

    Meet Perdue, a resilient and successful small business owner who wears the hats of a dedicated father and husband with pride. Perdue's journey hasn't been paved with ease; instead, he is a testament to the belief in hard work, discipline, and the doggedpursuit of one's goals.

    Perdue is not just a successful business owner; he is also a seasoned trader with a diverse set of strategies. Countless hours spent backtesting and refining these strategies reflect his meticulous approach to trading. His dedication to mastering the craft positions him as a valuable contributor to the trading community. As a firm believer in the "Grind," Perdue chose to embrace putting in the work and serves as a example of how dedication and self-belief can propel you to great heights.

    A self-taught, no-nonsense trader, Perdue is unwaveringly supportive, but he doesn't sugarcoat the truth. His belief in discipline and hard work is not only evident in his own journey but extends to his interactions with others. When Perdue recognizes these qualities in fellow traders, he goes above and beyond to offer support, especially when they are navigating through challenges.

    Joel MC:

    Meet Joel, a dedicated and aspiring trader who has not only been a crucial part of Kyle's support system but has also embraced the trading journey with unmatched enthusiasm. As a power lineman, husband, and proud father of two wonderful daughters, Joel brings a unique blend of kindness, support, and motivation to the Band of Traders community.

    Joel's venture into trading wasn't merely a financial pursuit; it was a desire to actively engage with the market beyond traditional buy-and-hold ETF investing. Trading, particularly in futures, became more than just a financial endeavor for Joel. It evolved into a genuine passion, a game he enjoys playing, regardless of the monetary outcomes.

    What sets Joel apart is not just his passion, but his willingness to open up and share his struggles. In the often-challenging landscape of trading, Joel's authenticity and transparency create a supportive environment within the Band of Traders community. Beyond the charts and numbers, Joel has discovered a sense of camaraderie that extends beyond mere acquaintances – to what he now considers a brotherhood.

The conversation then shifts to bank health and delinquency rates, as well as inflation and the possibility of a soft landing. They also touch on currency trends in 2024, the Central African Franc, and the joke of BRICS. Finally, they discuss unrealized bond losses and the dominance of the US dollar before Eric wraps things up by emphasizing the importance of transparency and trust in managing pension funds.
