The Steady Trade Podcast started with a simple yet important goal: to help guide new traders to succeed. As many as 90 percent of day traders fail, but this isn’t because it’s too hard. It’s often because the traders in question simply haven’t received proper training and guidance. This causes them to go too far too fast, often resulting in lost money and a trading career that is over before it even begins.

In the Steady Trade Podcast, hosts Tim Bohen and Stephen Johnson want to help traders build the ultra-important foundation of base knowledge that is so necessary for success. Tim is an established trader with many years of experience under his belt; Stephen is a new trader who still has a lot to learn. Together, they are able to present lessons and information that speak to traders of all levels.

Everyone wins simply by listening to the podcast. However, the first season came to a close, a select few listeners won in an even bigger way: by winning the prizes from the Steady Trade Mega-Giveaway! Out of over 3,000 entries, a few lucky winners were chosen at random to win 11 different prize packages. The prizes ranged from the biggest box of Tic-Tacs you’ve ever seen to what we lovingly called the  “Greedy Little Bastard” Package, an incredible prize featuring a 55-inch Samsung 4k Ultra HD TV, the Dell Inspiron Laptop, an Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Gaming Bundle, Apple watch Series 2, Bose SoundSport wireless headphones, and yes, a big box of Tic Tacs too, plus a 12-month subscription to Stocks to Trade Pro and a 12-month admission to Timothy Sykes’ Millionaire Challenge.

Steady Trade Podcast Prize Winner Profile: Tim

Apparently Tim is a lucky name to have as a trader! After all, prominent traders on the scene include Tim Sykes, Tim Bohen, and now Tim, new trader and Steady Trade Podcast winner!

Day trading has been on Tim’s radar since 2013 or so, but at the time he had to focus on paying off some debt, so investing went on the back burner. But when the Tim Sykes Millionaire Challenge came about, it sparked his interest anew. In a better place financially, winner Tim decided it was time to circle back around to trading.

Still identifying very much as a new trader, Tim has yet to go live with his trading. He’s currently in the “watchful waiting” phase of his career, trying to sort out how the market works and how to make wise and calculated risks with potential investments.

As for the podcast? His review is glowing: “I love it. It’s one of those things that I look forward to every week.” Episode 5, which focused on the importance of making a trading plan, was his favorite from Season One, because this is something that he has struggled with and it was very helpful to hear the other Tim and Stephen’s words of advice.

Tim’s next steps

Tim is continuing to survey the lay of the land in the world of trading, and is hoping to go live or begin paper trading in January.  

Tim B. and Stephen congratulate winner Tim on taking this long view on his career rather than falling prey to the all too common “this must happen today” mentality that ultimately makes so many traders flame out. Really, why must there be a big rush?

Like anything, it takes time to learn how to trade. Tim has a great view on his progression, figuring that once you begin to practice and it becomes normal, that’s when you can really begin to focus on making some money. But for now, he’s happy to just continue learning and figuring out what makes stocks move.

Tim wins big!

Stephen says that he wants winner Tim to watch trading content til his eyes bleed. The only problem? Tim doesn’t own a TV. Well, he didn’t own a TV until now! As Tim B. and Stephen are happy to reveal, he’s now got the perfect viewing vessel for his continued education: he’s won the 55-inch Samsung 4k Ultra HD TV! Undoubtedly, Tim’s going to feel like a king when watching his DVDs and trading lessons on this big screen.
