Things You Will Learn In This Interview

Tom Casano is an experienced and successful Day Trader. With successful, I mean that he actually makes his living with day trading. This is a very interesting interview because there are many parallels between day-trading and entrepreneurship.

Tom told me that many people want to learn and get into day-trading but very few of those who do actually end up making money even after years of practice. He tells me that there is a learning curve to actually learn the technical aspects of day trading and with enough effort and practice anyone can learn it. However, what hurts people the most and where people end up losing money, is when they do not have the skills to manage their emotional states.

In this interview, Tom shares a little bit about his story. He started out small and was not doing very well financially in the beginning phases of his day-trading career. However, he believes that total immersion into learning about the technical aspects of day-trading, as well as learning how to better manage his emotional states allowed him to become more successful. In this interview, he shares some of his insights and specific exercises that he uses to better manage his psychology.
