STOCKS & COMMODITIES Editor Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan spoke with Todd Gordon on April 14, 2015 about what it takes to become a confident trader.
Todd, how did you get interested in technical analysis and trading?
In college, I picked up a copy of Alexander Elder’s book Trading For A Living. I was an economics major in college, and I was more interested in trading the markets than going to economics class. So I would trade from my dorm room in my small e*Trade account with a couple thousand dollars. In college, you don’t have a lot of money.
