Tom also has a talent for explaining how to translate analysis into trades, and he leads the discussion in TOTM’s intraday chat room.
More than a decade ago, Kurt Hulse was inspired by the idea that technical trading can offer a road to financial independence for anyone who is devoted to acquiring the skills and developing a trader’s discipline. In 2008, he helped create Trading On The Mark as a place where traders at any point in their development can find useful analysis of current markets while working alongside masters of the art.
