Sometimes children, and adults, need a powerful dose of advice to get them on track for success.

“You should learn trading for your own benefit.”

Great advice for anyone wanting to improve their lot in life, and hefty words for a 12-year-old kid.

For TG Watkins, Director of Stocks at Simpler Trading, those words of wisdom – “learn trading” – set in motion his trading career.

TG was 12 when he attended a two-day stock trading seminar with his dad. Even though the presentation was mostly over his head, he knew that this type of knowledge would be important someday. His dad’s guidance hooked him on trading.

Fast-forward through high school, college, and a job as a financial advisor, and TG knew he wasn’t on the right path. His trading had grown into a passion he couldn’t avoid.

Corporate life and its grind – long hours of work, limited free time, a cap on income potential – wasn’t appealing to TG.

He wanted to grow his part-time passion into a full-time career… a lifestyle.

TG went looking for skills development and guidance from seasoned traders. He found people who offered insight into the trading world. His skills, and success at trading, improved.

Yet, he sought more.

TG’s goal wasn’t only to make consistent profits in the stock market.

He also wanted to share skills and encourage others, just as he had been inspired along his journey to trading full time.

TG developed a specialized system of trading to identify straightforward setups on stock charts regardless of market direction. From there he designed an indicator to monitor, track, and execute trades with less risk and more profit potential. He also developed a checklist to stay disciplined when trading.

This is all part of TG’s specialized trading method and Moxie Indicator™ that he uses daily to catch Moxie-style moves before they take off and often before other traders realize what is happening.

Traders can use his step-by-step strategy that is designed to track the stock market and uncover profitable returns.

TG shares his insights regularly in the Options Gold room; across multiple social media channels and news media appearances; and he dives deeper into the markets with Moxie Indicator™ Mastery.

Thanks to the trading lifestyle he built because of his commitment to that childhood dream, TG enjoys his second passion… flying. He is a licensed pilot who gets his love of flying from… you guessed it… his father.
