Welcome to Amphibian Trading.
I’m Brandon and I’ve been trading for 17 years. My passion for the markets started when I was a teenager and I convinced my parents to open a brokerage account for me. I quickly took my $10,000 account into 6 figures getting lucky buying whatever I wanted in a bull market with no risk management.
I was in for a rude awakening in 2008 when the great financial crisis hit and I quickly gave back all of my gains. That is when I realized if I wanted to keep trading I needed to treat it seriously like a real business.
From there I found Investors Business Daily and William O’Neil’s book How to Make Money in Stocks. I attended every IBD workshop including the Masters Program in 2011 with a lecture from William O'Neil himself.
Using the principles of CAN SLIM, I was able to build back up my account and began trading full time in 2015. As a way to supplement my income I became proficient in options strategies as well.
I’m sharing my analysis, trades and studies as a way to keep myself accountable and help others speed up their learning curve.
