Hello, I'm Mike Reed. I've been trading for more than 30 years....this is how I got my start in trading.
In 1979 I was attending a BIG TEN
college on a full ride baseball scholarship, and was being scouted by a
number of Major League Baseball teams. However, in the summer of '79, while
water skiing with some friends, I had a diving accident that abruptly ended
my chances for a career in professional baseball.
One day my dad brought me the Wall Street Journal , pointed out the Options page and said, "You can make a lot of money from a little if you know what to do with those." My interest was piqued, so I got a book on Options and how to read a ticker tape. Watching the ticker tape, I began charting on paper, on 15 minute intervals, plotting prices. It really gave me a "feel" for price action, thus began my obsession with the market !
In the mid '80's I happened across a mentor, an experienced trader who helped me on my way. After a few years of "following" him on his "morning market comment", I bought my first PC and some Options pricing software, and developed a batch of my own indicators and patterns that give low risk/ high profit potential opportunities.
I continued to trade OEX Options for the next 4-5 years, by the late '80's, early 90's, I started day trading the big SP Futures and the NYFE ( tracked NYSE Composite), which at the time was known as the "poor man's futures contract.
Throughout the 1990's I participated in a number of Investment and Trading forums, a couple being Prodigy Investment Bulletin Board, and GENIE (General Electric). The advent of the internet, and the thirst for knowledge displayed by fellow traders spurred me to put my market observations into print.
Through perseverance, drive, and hard work, in 1996 I started writing my daily short term trader update that has since grown to a wide readership.
I love all sports, particularly baseball. Chicago Cubs being my favorite team. I am an associate scout for a MLB team. I enjoy playing "Texas Hold'em" and Craps, comedies, and jazz music. I keep very busy with work and my family.
