Jake’s mom started him out with a custodial account, while he was still in middle school. By the time he was in high school, the financial crisis of 2008 was in full swing. Jake would ask for shares of stock for Christmas, and by the age of 16, his mom was letting him trade her account as well as his own. He learned about the markets from reading message boards and through trial and error. Jake was good at trading beaten down names like AIG, Wells Fargo, and Genworth Financial. He attributes his success to lots of luck and an emotional detachment to his trading, since he wasn’t using his own funds for investment. Jake stopped trading while he went to college to study economics. This ultimately led him to a greater understanding of how the markets actually operate.
Jake likes to use basic volume-weighted average prices to determine where to enter a trade. He looks at volume from a specific anchor point in time. He tends to exit at the break of the previous week’s low.
