New Blood In The Water


I did a Little John trade today capitalizing on “Robinhooders,” and showed everyone live my exact system, analysis, and process that I’ve been using to make FAST money with the brand new edge in these markets. Trades still live and you can still grab it here.

In the last 6 weeks, Option Pit has added 2 new employees. 


 One is a grizzled trader from both the floor and upstairs desks –   we will do a formal intro on him soon…


The second new hire is named Brandon Durr.


He is a former gymnast with a degree in Biology.


What you won’t see with those qualifications is trading options.


I always say,  you don’t need a degree in business to be a successful trader…


You just need a drive to learn and it helps to be good with numbers.


Brandon is going to be a home run hire…but…


Right now he knows JACK SQUAT…


…which  has thrown a curve ball in the way I operate.


When you run a firm full of traders,  the firm develops trader specific language and operational protocols.


Having someone from outside our ‘bubble’ join has thrown us off…
… in a good way.


I think a few of us had fallen into the trap of thinking…. everyone thinks and communicates….


LIKE US.

Too easily we write off young people as naive…. when in fact that can offer some insights that we can become blind to.


Having new blood has forced me, in particular, to rethink HOW I explain concepts of trading.


I can’t just gloss over what is obvious to me and not to Brandon,  because he will ask ‘why?’


At Option Pit we empower our employees to ask questions and challenge the way we teach and trade.


But,  when everyone comes from the same background,  sometimes things become a little monolithic.


That is why I am so excited that over the next few months I’ll be working with Brandon,  teaching him how to trade.


At the same time,  I know he is going to be teaching ME how to be a better teacher,  especially to young people.


He is going to be trading along with me in our 90 day trading challenge that starts on Monday.


In a ‘student becomes the master’  I am expecting him to help guide ME in how to better teach the new generation of trader that trades entirely from his or her phone.


My point is,  that in life and in trading,  having someone to teach forces you to be better… that’s why I love what I do.


Welcome aboard Brandon.


Your Only Option,


Mark
