Ed is a Wall Street professional who gets right to the point. He believes that in order to navigate the markets, traders must have a thorough understanding of technical analysis, fundamental analysis, and risk management. They must practice discipline and exercise self-control, and apply a rigorous planning process before entering trades. It is never easy and it is not for everyone.
All of this started innocently enough; Ed began just like many other traders, with a strong desire to succeed, but without a plan for doing so. He remedied this problem by taking a position with a boutique Wall Street trading firm. It was there that he first became exposed to professional traders and their strategies, and began to create the techniques and methods that he uses today.
