If you’re reading this, chances are you’re interested in learning how to build a career as a trader. Here’s a tip: Don’t try to invent the wheel, because it’s already been done. Markus Heitkoetter has been there and done that, and is offering his easy-to-read and informative eBook, “The Complete Guide to Day Trading,” for free. Contained in this eBook is an abundance of little-known trade secrets that were realized only after years of hard work; you can also order his Kindle e-Book, “The Simple Strategy.”
Here’s how it all started: When Markus Heitkoetter was a teenager, living in Germany, he invested the equivalent of $50 in VW stock. The investment generated a 20% return, and he was hooked; although he didn’t know it at the time, Rockwell Trading was already sowing its roots.
As an adult, other matters took precedence, such as becoming a corporate rising star with IBM and starting a family. Markus knew that if he played the corporate game, and worked the requisite 60 or more hours a week, he could secure his future with a comfortable retirement down the road. However, he wondered if the sacrifice of his health and private life was worth it.
Time passed, and in 2000, the Internet bubble burst. Not long afterwards, IBM announced imminent changes, but not the good kind; these changes meant that substantial personnel layoffs were coming in the near future. Markus could see the writing on the wall, and a few of his own seeds of change began to sprout. Although his early passion as a day trader had been latent for a while, Markus knew the time was ripe for a 180 degree turn in his career, and he knew where his heart was taking him.
With a meager year’s savings, a small family to support, and a tough economy looming, Markus moved to Austin, Texas, and began the daunting work of becoming a trader. His goal, however, was not obtained easily. There was plenty of trial and error, sweat, and yes, a few tears. Still, undaunted, Markus knew he was headed in the right direction, and he persisted. His persistence paid off with that “Eureka!” moment, when he began to understand, with clarity, a few simple, remarkable principles of trading that had eluded him until that moment. His hard work has been well worth the effort; he now enjoys the life he had envisioned as a youth — the life of the American Dream.
If you’re seeking the freedom and excitement of a career in trading, don’t try to reinvent the wheel, and remember that you don’t have to go it alone.
