Yesterday Is Gone… Focus On Today’s Gains

2021-05-07

Where are all the explosive moves?

Lately, they’ve been all over the place in the market.

The difficulty has been finding the right setup to take advantage of these moves and add to the trading account.

All the negatives in this market provide focus for this team member. He sees the pressures and challenges as an opportunity to excel.

(There is nothing more valuable at Simpler Trading than our biggest asset — our people. The information, resources, and experience our traders deliver reaches around the world. Our “Friday Feature” is a highlight of the newsletter where we present elements of the Simpler community making an impact.)

Chandler Horton, Director of Day Trading Strategies at Simpler Trading, is one of the newer faces in our community, but he’s already making an impact.

He delivers trading insights in a free newsletter called Focused Trades and leads regular live-trading sessions in our Options Gold online chat room. He is also holding his first class, “Options Scalping Secrets,” tomorrow.

Chandler relates to a variety of people on many levels.

Maybe because he dropped out of high school. Or because he started a business as a teenager. Maybe because he followed in his family’s footsteps of pursuing the challenge of trading at an early age. Or maybe it’s because he digs in, listens, studies, and learns from successful traders open to mentoring him. He never stops learning.

Chandler also relates to many people because he is open to helping other traders and he shows them how he developed a mindset and method to trading quickly (often in under an hour) and profitably.

For him yesterday is long gone, and what lies ahead today in the market is his sole focus.

Chandler constantly pursues balance in his personal life and as a trader. Negative is not allowed and he maintains an internal strength fueled by a mind and spirit of calm and patience. He maximizes this personal strength in his trading with practical applications of useful tools and well-planned setups that fit a sound, repeatable trading plan.

Chandler is “that trader” other traders seek out when trying to piece together a balanced style of navigating any market. He knows there is always room for improvement, and he’s always ready to share that better version of himself to inspire others.
