Interview: The Survivors by John Sweeney and Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
As goes the Nasdaq, so does the number of daytraders. Or so it seems. Those who continue to trade as if nothing changed are those who can call themselves, with confidence, traders. Former STOCKS & COMMODITIES Editor John Sweeney (JS) and current Editor Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan (JG) talked to three such market survivors — Mark Pancak from Vancouver, BC, Canada, Aaron Schindler from Chicago, IL, and Ralph Kosche from Seattle, WA — to find out how they held up during the bear market. All three are truly traders; tending to introspection, they are not analysts, boast no newsletter experience, and have no journalists clamoring for sound bites. (STOCKS & COMMODITIES doesn’t count.) They each have their unique strategies, systems, or techniques, but they all have one thing in common, as S&C found out.
