I met Don in 2004 in Las Vegas. I first read about him in some periodicals in 2002.
Before I came to the first Seminar, after looking at the ODDS Profit Power Seminar, I started out with straddles and strangles and I did okay with that whenever I attended a Seminar back in 2004, and then I ventured into credit spreads.
Year to date I've traded 22 trades and had 1 loss. I started off with a $20,000 account which I turned into a $32,000. Additionally, I got involved in the Contrarian which needless to say has done extremely well this year. That in of itself has paid for any plane tickets out here to Las Vegas, and fees for the seminar, so I'm ecstatic, to say the least. I'm sorry, Momentum is what it is. But it takes on a contrarian viewpoint, but yes, it is the Momentum.
I've been to a few other seminars, with respect to investing, and Don was a breath of fresh air. There was no BS, excuse me, no problem with Don. Don did not paint a picture of pie-in-the-sky. The only thing he ever promised was that if you followed his direction you could almost be guaranteed somewhere in the neighborhood of a 50% return on your investments. And I will openly admit it's been better than that for me.
And to any other seminars that I attended, I think all I ever did was lost money. So, it's been great. He's the real deal. I would say Don works under the K.I.S.S. principle.
And I know he comes from an engineering background, which I do as well, and the more simple you can keep things the better off you are. It's the K.I.S.S. principle and my whole career has revolved around the K.I.S.S. principle and that's the way he does things. He keeps things very simple, very easy to understand so it's not complicated, not confusing, and that's a good thing.
My sister and Brother-in-law do a lot of trading. They just trade stocks in general, but they're constantly looking over my shoulder as to how I'm doing. And I try to talk my sister into coming out here but she's not ready yet. But hopefully from my success she'll be ready to take on the challenge.
My brother-in-law is a pessimist, and he thought I was nuts. However I think I've proven him wrong since then.
I went to a Bill O'Neal from IBD, everybody knows him from IBD, I went to one of his seminars on chart readings and this was a number of years back. I think the guy's brilliant, but at a break somebody asked him about options and his comment was all those options traders are nuts. Well... I beg to differ. I personally, I know myself I'm an example that they aren't nuts.
You just need to follow Don's example, keep it simple, and you'll do just fine.
