My name is Andrew and live in southern California. My trading interest became apart of my life about 20 years ago. I started trading in commodities about 12 years ago.
My interest was stirred from a little booklet lying around at my mom’s house. The author was Ken Roberts. Known for his extreme success in the late 70’s and early 80’s for making millions trading the commodities. He had a very intriguing story and it got my attention unlike anything I ever read before. From that moment on I knew things were going to be different and that trading is what I wanted to do!
I had no money to invest in trading but decided to start where I was at. Struggled for a while as a field painter, painting houses and small retail buildings but continued to work my way up anyway. Then soon after landing a different job in the same industry started working in the office for a large union contractor in LA as an estimator and project manager.
To make a long story short, I saved some money to invest and began trading. Then after years of failures and multiple disappointments I finally developed what I believe is the key to being a successful trader. Knowledge, mindset and a lot of help from various trading mentors is what has put me on to the road to trade successfully in recent years.
