As a Registered Osteopath I have a fulfilling and rewarding career. I love my work and enjoy the freedom I have as a self-employed practitioner.
However, I am always aware of the fact that my family and I depend on the money I earn and that there are many things that could prevent me from working.
Something as minor as a broken hand could cause considerable financial hardship for my family and I. Additionally, as an Osteopath I need to be at work on a regular basis, which means I feel tied to my practice and I do not see my family anywhere near as much as I would like.
I have no sick pay, no paid holiday and if I am not working then the family has no money coming in. As such I have always been on the look-out for something that will allow me to earn additional income, part-time from the comfort of my home.
Fortunately over the years I have developed an interest in the financial markets. Due to my lack of training I considered myself lucky to have come away with profits from a buy and hold strategy, but that really was down to luck and rising markets.
It did however, whet the whistle.
After talking to a friend who successfully intra-day trades e-minis I realized
that here was an opportunity to build a potentially lucrative alternate source of income.
I spent a year or so studying technical analysis and took some training in trading, all of which was helpful but left me floundering around, at best churning a simulation account trying to trade the YM.
I was struggling to get my head around the seemingly insanely complex markets and although I felt I was making progress, it all seemed very slow and that an income from this was a long way off. As often happens, just when I was starting to think about chucking it all in, one thing led to another and in the spring of 2007 I was then introduced to Sam Goldberg.
We spoke at length about what I was trying to achieve and how I had been going about it. Sam re-assured me that whilst I hadn’t been wasting my time he had a method, developed over many years of professional trading, that was easy to understand and implement and that was capable of producing great returns.
Well, I trained with Sam and I have to say that he was spot on.
At the heart of his method is simplicity. The signals are as clear and as un-ambiguous signals as I have come across. The reality is that anyone with a basic rudimentary understanding of technical analysis (being able to find your way around a candlestick chart) has the potential to be taught this method. His understanding of the markets, why they do what they do and what is going on in the pit seems never-ending.
Most importantly for me it was his ability to convey these things to me and relate it back to his series of set-ups in the charts that was the foundation of a level of understanding and a growing ability to trade successfully that I could not have
dreamt of prior to training with Sam.
Previously I was struggling under the mental “pressure” of being told that if I didn’t trade full-time I didn’t have a hope, especially as I was up against professional traders in the market place.
No doubt, if I were able to trade full-time my progress would obviously be quicker but having Sam’s method gives me the ability to trade part-time and produce consistent returns. Having gone from really struggling to put together winning days I am now in a position where I haven’t had a red day in 3 weeks.
I have sampled quite a few trading systems over the years, and Sam’s is the one that does it for me. It strips away a lot of the fog that can come with a technical approach and definitely shows you the wood from the trees.
His set-ups get you into trades consistently earlier than any other method I have come across, and long before the trend continuation set-ups I was using before. His method keeps you in the trade longer, and teaches you to ruthlessly cut your losing positions, something which so few traders are able to do.
Obviously I still have a long long way to go, and am learning more with each day, but this learning curve is made so much easier by being able to easily contact Sam to ask any question and get honest, straight-up answers and feed-back.
The upshot is that I now feel that I have the inside track and that my family and I have much greater personal freedom and that alternate source of income that will allow me to work from home several days a week, and man that feels good!!
Thank you Sam,
