This era of the stock market may prove to be the most volatile time in history to be a trader.

This environment is a constant whirlwind of potential to lose quickly and lose heavily.

Yet, for active traders, this market has delivered endless opportunities no matter the direction or speed at which the market shifts.

In times like this, traders seek an informative, experienced voice to offer insight and encouragement in this exciting journey.

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.

Danielle Shay, Director of Options, is our “Friday Feature” this week. She headlines this highlight of the newsletter where we present one of our traders making an impact in the Simpler community.

Danielle delivers a constant stream of trading insights through Simpler’s online training chatrooms, live-trading sessions, authors a regular newsletter, inspires aspiring and long-time traders in her mastery program, and is a regular on high-profile financial media outlets.

If her schedule sounds busy, it is, especially when you add in her commitment to family that energizes her willingness to help others.

Danielle was introduced to trading by her father, and her passion for the profession grew when she wanted to stay at home to work so she could spend time with her son growing up. Despite little knowledge about trading, she took a class from John Carter, Founder of Simpler Trading, to learn more and never looked back.

Her growth from novice to full-time, and a mentor herself, can easily be described as a fast-track to success. All of it accomplished through commitment and determination to succeed.

Thanks to her previous career as a school teacher, Danielle displays an uncanny ability to transform complex ideas into simple applications. She relates to traders of all skill levels and most styles, and readily offers her insight into applying proven trading strategies.

Her passion lies in a determination to help others accomplish their trading goals in any market environment.

For those who are students of trading and are ready to “up their game,” you’ve been introduced to the teacher with the plan to always excel.
