Aaron Fifield Podcast 2 Comments

This week on the podcast I interview Nathan Michaud of Investors Underground.

Nate has been a day trader since 2003, and the stories from his first few years in the game are enough to make your head spin. After experiencing major highs and lows, both financially and psychologically (all covered during the interview), he’s gone from strength to strength playing small-cap momentum stocks.

Over the next 60 minutes you’ll learn about; Nate’s approach to fast moving stocks, the additional risks linked with short-selling, a smart way to scale up, the power of compounding, and heaps more.
