The Steps to Go From a Losing to a Winning Trader

Posted by TopstepTrader on January 25, 2018

If you don't relate to Anthony Crudele's story, you haven't been trading long enough. Anthony knows what it is like to blow up a trading account. He lost three $25,000 accounts when he first started trading - $50,000 of which was borrowed money. Then, on the last $10,000 he borrowed from his aunt, he finally got it

In this week's Limit Up, Anthony talks about his early struggles, what he now knows that he was doing wrong, and how he turned his trading around - going from someone deeply in debt to paying that off and buying his own seat on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME).
