Shaun has enjoyed trading from a young age, at 12 years old he learned to trade commodities from his father. After graduating with a major in Business and Accounting, he set out to trade on his own while working full time. As with most investors, he has traded a variety of markets and tested countless strategies over the years. With more than 43 of years of experience trading in the markets, Shaun has mastered his trading strategy from hard work, dedication and an eye for trades with high probability quick moves in price action. His preference is day trading US stocks using scalping, and often covered calls on stocks and calendar spreads.

Shaun has learned that you have to learn good capital management and not try for the next big score. Home runs in games are sexy but it’s the consistent one and two base hits that ultimately set u up for a big score. By consistently swinging for the fences often you are sitting on the sidelines licking your wounds.

Shaun has been married for 34 years to is wonderful wife. He has two children and two beautiful grandchildren. When he isn’t trading, he enjoys spending time with his grandchildren, and refereeing basketball and softball.
