Chat With Traders · Conversations with talented traders—in stocks, futures, options, forex and crypto markets.

When Alex (@TAGRtrades) was on CWT for the first time—Episode 119, he was beginning to make head way as a full-time day trader, since abandoning a secure job in recent years. But since then, he’s really stepped it up a notch…

Alex started 2017 with an account balance of $32,000 and finished the year with a compounded return of 1,400%. But what makes things more significant, is how he was able to achieve this with minimal drawdown.

Over the course of this episode, you’re going to hear Alex and I reviewing his performance of the past twelve months—what he did well and areas where he would like to further improve. Alex also talks about his strategy; from scanning to entries to managing positions. Plus psychology, self-discipline and more.


Michael Katz is an active day trader and the managing partner of New York prop trading firm, Seven Points Capital. Mike and his firm, are large volume participants in U.S. equity markets, and to a lesser extent, futures and options too.

In this episode, Mike discusses the things which have attributed most to his consistency over the years, insight to his momentum strategies, and how he’s able to turnover millions of shares each month, and of course, plenty more.
