The Steady Trade Podcast is designed to help guide new traders succeed. With a “dropout” rate of about 90 percent, day trading is not for the feint of heart. However, if you’re willing to put in the work and learn how the market works, it’s extremely possible to make good money as a trader. The Steady Trade Podcast wants to take you to that place.
In the podcast, hosts Tim Bohen and Stephen Johnson help traders build the vital base knowledge that is so necessary for success. They come from different points of view and experience: Tim is an established trader with many years of experience under his belt, whereas Stephen is a new trader who is still learning the ropes. Together, they are able to present lessons and information which are accessible to traders of all levels.
But Tim and Stephen have more than just knowledge to offer. As 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: Isaac
Isaac is a relatively new trader. In the beginning of August, he discovered Timothy Sykes, which led him to Stocks to Trade and Stocks to Trade Pro, which is how he discovered the podcast. He’s enjoyed all of the resources available through both Tims and Stephen.
Until recently, Isaac was really just trying to work with a few IRA accounts. Through his recent day trading research, it was a revelation to him to learn that you don’t necessarily have to have a position and follow a “buy and hope” approach to make money as a trader. However, having observed market crashes from the sidelines in the past, he’s understandably nervous about the bull market and feels he’s not educated enough yet. As such, he is very aware that it’s important to have a well rounded education on all sorts of investing.
Isaac’s next steps
Isaac wants to trade full time. The flexibility and freedom as a career and the ability to travel very much appeals to him. He wants to downsize in some ways but upgrade in terms of his lifestyle. Tim and Stephen applaud this goal and tout the flexibility as one of the great benefits of trading: after all, with a laptop, Stocks to Trade, and an internet connection, you can make it happen!
Isaac was particularly intrigued with Episode 5 of the first season, which focused on how to make a trading plan and why it’s so important. For him, the next focus is going to be continuing his education and refining his planning. After all, knowing when to get in and out of trades is a vital part of the process, and he understands that this is the type of thing that transcends the market’s current conditions. While the market will go up and down, understanding market mechanics will serve you no matter what.
He’s in the green today after a great trade, so he’s riding high. But he’s about to be riding even higher once his big prize is announced!
Isaac wins big!
No joke: this prize unveiling rivals It’s a Wonderful Life in terms of its pure heartwarming level. First, Stephen asks how Isaac would feel about winning some Tic-Tacs. After a decidedly long pause, he offers a winning response: “What flavor?”. Then Stephen begins asking how he might feel about winning some headphones. He and Tim begin piling prize after prize onto the bundle until it’s clear that Isaac has won the big daddy prize: the Greedy Little Bastard package! Yes indeed, Isaac has won it all: 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. His reaction simply can’t be missed!
