My name is Michael Storm and I have also been known as "robinhood" throughout my trading career. I have been trading for 20 years. I was a high speed NASDAQ scalper for the first 6 years. I was trained by some of the best in the world; Oliver Velez, Greg Capra and Paul Lange among others.
I shifted to Forex in 2006 for a ton of positive reasons; liquidity and constant availability of things to short or buy was one reason and massive margin improvements when compared to the stock market was another. It took me 4 years to adjust and hone my strategies so that I could be as good in Forex. I did not have anyone to teach me at the time, so I had to learn it all on my own.
I started a trade room in 2010 with the goal of getting like minded traders together and creating a great trading environment like the one I came out of when I was trading stocks. From 2010 to 2015 I learned a ton more through seeing some really wild moves as well as some massive market manipulation. I took a long break for a year and a half when my mom passed away from cancer and I bought, remodeled and sold a dozen homes and then got sick of it. I came right back to my one true love and passion; trading!
I have a passion for teaching. I love to mentor others and see to it that they get grounded the right way. This level of mentorship was simply not available to me when I started. If I could have found this I would have jumped all over it for sure. My goal is to teach and train you the right way! And for this I tell everyone to start small. Learn to crawl. then walk then run. Trading is a business and not a casino, nor a race. If people have the right mentor and are taught the right ways to slowly double an account, they will be traders for life. This is what I teach; slow, safe and what to do should you fall in the mud. How to get out of your bad trades.
One of my greatest skills, sharply honed in and as sharp as a razor blade over the last few years, is damage control; the art of washing and hedging. Due to the 10-30 % of trades that usually don't go as planned even for the best traders on the planet, I think that this is one of the greatest skill assets you can possess... ever; knowing how to fix a bad trade. I believe if more traders knew this skill well, they would probably not throw in the towel and quit.
Today I trade in my custom built 18th century waterfront tree house. I'm paid to sit, watch and wait. Trying hard to only act when the time is right. I'm paid to put my finger on the pulse of the market like a Forex doctor; listening to news... watching 8 monitors and a bunch of charts and thinking about the flow. If you want to learn how to constructively trade for 8 to 10 hours a day and learn how to make 1% to 3% of capital gains a day, join me! I will be most happy to teach you the right way.
