Hey guys. My name is Mike. I'm 18 going on 45. I live in Charlotte NC. A few years ago I was working 14 hours a day on a military base in Key West. Rebuilding after Wilma. And one day while sweat was poring from every pore in my body I thought to myself. "There has got to be an easier way to make money!" The day after came a blessing in disguise. Someone found out I was only 16 and apparently you have to be 21 to work on base. So I was fired on the spot. I had my own crew and everything. They let me stay at the hotel until I got my next move figured out. So there I was fliping through the channels and thats when I first saw Mad Money. I said to myself. That can't be hard. So I googled the "stock market" and I was hooked.
I opened an account with Etrade. Got all excited. Bought MOT at $19 the sold it at $21 then I bought Varian Medical at $52 then sold it at $60. But I could only afford a couple of shares at a time. I was bummed. There had to be some way to generate some real cash off these huge moves I was picking. Then I found out about options. I was hooked again. I love the market. I couldn't live without it. I have CNBC blasting all day. I can't get away from it.
A few weeks ago I decided to quit my job and trade full time for myself. Then of course the whole market went to hell. But i'm making it. Now that I'm used to trading everyday though there is no way i'm going back to construction work.
