Episode #114 – The Origin Of The Active Day Trader With Jonathan Rose

In this episode, I start the show off with my usual relaxed format. I have a strong message for all of my listeners this week though. The message consists of only two words, but they may be two words that you need to hear to remain clear in your use of your time. My guest this week is Jonathan Rose from Active Day Trader and of course, we discuss his story. He offers 3 great tips on day trading for beginners too. You won’t want to miss these or any of this episode. Enjoy!
