EP 062: Pairing technicals & fundamentals, and the life of a hardcore crude oil trader w/ Tracy aka @ChiGrl
For this episode, I spoke with a trader who has spent many years in the financial hub of Chicago; Tracy – otherwise known as @ChiGrl on Twitter.
Tracy is a technical intraday trader, but also tracks fundamentals very closely. She solely focuses on the energy sector and has an obsession with crude oil.
During our interview, Tracy shares her story about how she up and left LA to chase her desire of becoming a trader. And how she wound up at a “hack-shop” brokerage, which is best described as a scene from the trading movie, Boiler Room.
We also discuss the bear market of oil, the impact falling prices have on a macro level, the skill sets that are have helped Tracy to survive and thrive as a trader, plus much more.
