Day trading has experienced a boom during the pandemic, with one in five Americans now investing in stocks, according to Business Insider. Fully aware of the risks and benefits of amateur investing, Gary Trades is helping a new generation of traders make it in the market. He offers practical advice and one-on-one coaching to his more than 100,000 social media followers.
Gary Trades earned his name as one of the top volume-based traders on Twitter. “I knew I had found the right idea from the day that I began studying the stock market,” Gary says. “After finishing school I stumbled across the world of trading and was instantly hooked. For me, everything about the fast paced life of trading immediately clicked.”
Within a matter of four years, Gary managed to turn his $500 account into over $11 million. He continued on this path and is now making profitable returns. In the last year alone, he made an impressive $10 million from day trading.
Gary Trades prides himself on being a “fully transparent trader.” He posts his daily profits to show his followers the possibilities resulting from proper trading habits. He believes that anyone is capable of making successful trades by being patient and remaining calm.
He’s also very open about his red days and encourages his audience to practice effective risk management to avoid losses. Recalling his own experience of averaging down on a position where he suffered a significant loss, Gary shared a valuable lesson to trust one’s instincts. “Now I am much quicker to bail on a losing trade because I know there is always another one.”
Another important aspect of Gary’s technique is having the right mindset. He says, “If you know inside your own mind that you are a winner and will do whatever it takes to get to where you want, then you have the game one.” A few bad trades shouldn’t be the end of the world, especially for new traders.
Because of his genuine approach to his audience, Gary Trades has become a happy presence in the trading community. “I also gained the respect of my followers by keeping it completely honest with them and not trying to scam them with a fake false-promise gimmick or trying to sell them a trading course.” Through his live stock alerts, he is also making trading opportunities more accessible and easier to understand.
Gary is driven to inspire others to find consistency and confidence in their trading. His goal is to be known as one of the best day traders of all time. “I want my legacy to have a positive impact on traders that are starting their own journeys and for them to be able to look to my career as an inspiration as to what is possible for them to achieve.”
Day trading turned out to be Gary’s calling, and he has built a successful network to help new traders start their journeys. He has come a long way from growing up in poverty in rural Virginia to amassing an eight-figure net worth.
Seeing the impact he was able to make on other traders, Gary is now in the process of growing his personal trading brand, The Goblin Gang, with his friend, Tommy Cooperman. They are set to hold meet and greets and live trading seminars across the country later this year.
