When Mike “Huddie” Hudson was a college student, he knew there was more to the market than what he was learning in school. And with just $20 in his trading account, he started looking at penny stocks and tracking premarket runners. By the time he joined my Trading Challenge in 2015, he was ready to hit the ground running. See the long — and short — of his awesome journey below!

Quote

“It’s so achievable. It’s actually doable. And it doesn’t take anything but your hard work. You get what you put in.” — Mike “Huddie” Hudson

Background

With $20 in his trading account, Mike “Huddie” Hudson started looking at penny stocks. He was an entrepreneurship major at the University of San Francisco — and knew there was more to the market than what he was learning in school. So Huddie started tracking premarket runners on his own. When he joined my Trading Challenge in 2015, he was ready to hit the ground running.

Strategy

Three years into his trading career, Huddie realized he was better going short than long. That’s when he rewatched Tim Grittani’s “Trading Tickers” 10 or 20 times. He took multimillionaire trader Grittani’s strategy and tweaked it, committing to his best setups and a short bias. That’s how he went exponential, honing his risk along the way.

Hey Everyone,

As many of you already know I grew up in a middle class family and didn't have many luxuries. But through trading I was able to change my circumstances --not just for me -- but for my parents as well. I now want to help you and thousands of other people from all around the world achieve similar results!

Which is why I've launched my Trading Challenge. I’m extremely determined to create a millionaire trader out of one my students and hopefully it will be you.

So when you get a chance make sure you check it out.

PS: Don’t forget to check out my 30 Day Bootcamp, it will teach you everything you need to know about trading.
