Not really a great place to be. At some point, my buddy and I each got $50,000 from an investor, which I quickly took down to $20,000, in about six months. Then one day, it was as if I hit the lottery. I found a stock that was trading at around $8, and it quickly went to $120.  I had some big positions and FINALLY made some money. Fractional shares saved me!  They were everywhere, and they made scalping a lot easier.  Risk Management Like many traders, when I first started, I only cared about the profits. I wasn’t concerned with managing risk, and I definitely didn’t have a plan in place to deal with it. With 20+ years of experience, now the FIRST thing I want to know is where my risk is. Since I’m managing a community of traders, and not just myself, I try to keep risk management at the forefront of everyone’s mind.  You have to essentially start backwards. Before even taking a trade, you need to ask yourself how much you are willing to risk.   Resources & People Mentioned  Traders Summit - Register for FREE!!! Connect with Blake Morrow  Website: Physician Syndicate: Angel Investing | Venture Capital | Startups | Personal FinanceThe Physician Syndicate Podcast: A podcast for physicians to jump into the startup world.
