I was in the mortgage banking industry from 1997 to 2009. Yep, before, during and after the crash. I did secondary marketing and was self taught. In a nutshell, I watched the stock market and how it affected the 10 year treasury which in turn affected the 30 year mortgage interest rate. I make money for my company by waiting until these rates are lower so the same interest rate is paying more. Mortgage meltdown happens, I am out of work. I turn to something I have always dreamed of. Graphic Design. I taught myself how to design and develop websites. I taught myself how the algorithms work for the search engines. So I started my company BluClay. We still do SEO, Graphic Design, Web Design, Logos, Branding, etc. COVID happens. I see all this hulabaloo about trading. Boy do I miss watching those stocks and bonds and tracking every damn report, waiting for the Feds Beige Book, all of that. I look into it and HOLY GUACAMOLE! You mean I can do this on my own now? Without hiring some knuckledick and having to pay commission on my trades or to him? Balls. I am in. So, here we are. But I have a family of 6. Yep, 4 kids and a wife. 2 are out of the house now, 2 are on their way. So, I pay the bills with my main job. But I dream of being a full time trader and have been working on my trading the past 16 months. So, I figured to fund this trading account, I will start this site. Design my own trading swag since I LOVE logos, designs, ones that knock off others like the “Just Hodl It” Nike swoosh that is made from candlesticks. Hilarious. So that is that, my short story. So buy something, and let me make this third act of my life the last one. Let me trade off into the sunset. All I need is to get past that PDT right? HA!
