But…HE NEVER QUIT. Trading is a Skill You don’t have to be special; you don’t have to be a genius…you just have to learn the skill.  Tony had assumed that since he had been successful in his life outside of trading that it would just automatically carry over into his trading.  No so!  It wasn’t until he lost everything that he finally decided it was time to do something differently.  He stopped trading and devoted time, resources, and energy into studying and perfecting a solid trading strategy.

Thankfully, Tony is able to minimize his risk ev The Physician Syndicate: Angel Investing | Venture Capital | Startups | Personal FinanceThe Physician Syndicate Podcast: A podcast for physicians to jump into the startup world.
