As Seen On
MATT REVEALS HIS UNIQUE
“The bottom line is, my trading approach fits my own personality and goals.”
Hi it’s Matt Choi here...
Thank you for visiting this site. It’s great to have you here. What I would like to do is to take a few moments to explain what this site is all about, and more importantly how it can be of benefit to you.
Now, the reason that you are here is because you want to become a better trader, someone who is confident and can make winning trades day in and day out. And to become a consistent and profitable trader, you need to know what markets to trade, you need to have a sound trading approach, you need to have good analysis techniques, and you need systems and strategies that work. And the reason that I am here is because this is something that I can show you exactly how to achieve.
You may be thinking, why you should listen to me? That’s a very fair question. Let me quickly answer that for you. I started trading in 2001, and when I first started I thought I knew everything about trading the markets. I had the desire and passion to make it work, and I suspect like you do right now, wanted to make some money for me and for my family. At that time, the bear market just kicked in and basically anything that I shorted made me money. Easy, right? But the markets started to bottom mid-way through 2002 and basically I got chopped up and gave back all my profits and then some.
Quite frankly the first few years of my trading was a disaster.
I called myself a day trader for a few months but hated staring at the screens all day. When I tried position trading, I didn’t have the patience to wait months seeing my trades through. I felt anxious and fidgety when the markets stalled or moved against me. I gambled on unpredictable biotech stocks before clinical trial announcements. I traded illiquid exotic futures and option positions that had more than 60 legs. I spent thousands and thousands of dollars programming complex trading systems – I remember one of them having more than 100,000 lines of codes, and the results were not much better than a coin toss.
By 2005 I was still spinning my wheels, so I decided to wipe the slate clean and start over again. I threw out everything I thought I knew in my head and looked for help. That was when I met my mentor, the late George Fontanills. George taught me many trading strategies and techniques, but more importantly, he spent time to understand my trader personality. He thought swing trading would be most suitable for me. He also told me to specialize in a few markets rather than being jack-of-all-trades. He taught me risk management techniques to preserve capital during tough times, and how to attack the markets to maximize profits when opportunities present themselves. Most importantly, George helped me set the foundation to acquire what I believe is the most important asset in a trader – a winning mindset.
Speaking of a winning trader’s mindset,
in 2014, I co-authored a book with Brian Tracy called The Winning Way, which is an Amazon Best Selling book. In this book, I talk about The Three Psychological Mindsets You Must Have To Beat Wall Street. And just for visiting my website, I want to give you this amazing book, for free. It’s an actual book, not an e-book, and you can click on the link on this page and get yours before I run out of copies.
"I have been achieving
consistent and profitable
results in my trading"
Long story short, since 2006, after working with George for a couple of years, I have been achieving consistent and profitable results in my trading. Today, I continue to swing trade markets that show highly repetitive technical patterns, and I trade in multiple asset classes, including stocks, ETFs, commodities, currencies, and options in order to stay fully diversified. For example, if stocks are flat I can trade coffee and orange juice. And if commodities are not moving then I can trade the British Pound and the Australian Dollar. And if everything is moving sideways I can trade options and bring in premium. The key is to trade the asset classes with the best opportunities at any given time.
Typically I spend a couple of hours a day after the markets are closed to scan for trading opportunities,
then I put my limit orders in along with my targets and stops, and let the markets come to me. My trades typically last anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks – a time frame long enough that does not require me to stare at the screen all day, and short enough to keep me from being impatient.
The bottom line is, my trading approach fits my own personality and goals. It allows me to live a mobile lifestyle, travel the world, spend time with my family, and do what I want to do. The best part is, I get to watch my son grow up so fast that I would never trade this lifestyle for anything else in the world!
Having been through the school of hard knocks myself, I understand the frustration that you are going through. If you want to learn exactly how I trade, if my trading success resonates with you, if you seek a flexible lifestyle similar to mine, and if you are serious about taking your trading to an elite level, I encourage you to check out the trading courses that we offer by clicking on the “Training” tab on this page.
If I had to sum everything up,
Certus Trading is the website that I wish existed when I first started trading. I clearly remember years ago when I first started out how much time and money I wasted not really understanding the right way to trade the markets. But the thing is there is really no need for this struggle. When you can focus only on the best markets to trade, when you know the exact time and price to enter a trade, when you know when to take profit or a small loss, and when you can do all that without hesitation, then everything becomes much more clear and simple.
If you want to stop wasting time and discover how to become a consistent and profitable trader, then Certus Trading is for you. I want to keep this short – if you are interested in learning how to become consistent and profitable in your own trading I would be thrilled to see you inside one of our courses here at Certus Trading.
