Tessa Dao

Producer, Co-Host

If you missed original host and founder – Aaron Fifield’s departure announcement, you may catch up here when it was first announced on Episode 238, and his final episode as host on Episode 243.

As a long-time listener of the show, I have always felt hopeful, inspired, and motivated as I listen and learn from the variety of great guests on the show to help me stay in the game, in my own trading journey.

I am producer and co-host of Chat With Traders, and excited to help lead CWT into the next chapter!

My first market experience was in Commodities in late 1990 as a slick talking, cold calling broker persuaded my ignorant self to bet on oil skyrocketing due to the expected war with Iraq. A seemingly no loose trade turned into disaster as traders quickly sold oil when the war started in 1991.  After my account was wiped out, I spent the next 4 years saving up and studying everything I could on stocks and opened a stock brokerage account in 1995. A raging bull market, followed by the Dot com crash was a riveting educational experience in psychology and the causes of wild fluctuations in financial markets. I have been a full-time trader for 27 years and I’m looking forward to sharing and learning from fellow traders!

If you would like to learn a little more about me, I was interviewed by Tessa on Episode 244.
