Founder and Director
Hello, my name is Lynn, the Founder and Director of TradeMyTrades. Thank you for visiting our Website and giving your time to review our presentation of TradeMyTrades and how the integration of the TradeMyTrades Risk-Cash Ratios into your investment program can help you become a profitable investor.
Many years ago, in 1988, a late-night commercial caught my attention as the host was explaining household money management: budgeting, home buying, insurance purchasing, car buying, and a litany of other how-to-buy topics within one’s financial means.
So, with peaked interest and motivated to pursue financial maturity, I purchased the books and dug in. They were my first real entry into learning concepts of how to effectively manage money. It wasn’t long into reading, research, and talking with co-workers that I found myself interested in learning how to make my money grow through investing. Well, guess what was the most often discussed and used method to save and invest? You got it-Dollar Cost Averaging into the stock market by far! So, that’s where I started.
Some years later, after spending hundreds of hours and hundreds of dollars learning about various investing and trading systems, I ran across an investment concept that promoted holding a reserve of cash to take advantage of market down turns to buy at lower prices. It spoke to me, and conceptually I found it exactly what I was looking for. In fact, the concept was one I inherently knew all along but never considered applying to a continuous investment program or trading.
An analogy I often use is one related to my mother when purchasing milk as a kid and how she instructed me to spend when sending me to the store. She would instruct me by saying, “If milk is on sale, buy two gallons. If it’s not on sale, only buy one.” Her instruction was to tell me to save our money to buy the additional gallon of milk when prices provide a better opportunity. This fundamental concept explains my development of the TradeMyTrades Risk-Cash Ratios and how it transitions us to become Value Investors the same way my mother taught me to be a value shopper.
Self-managing my retirement investments is important to me. I want to control how my money goes to work for me and I want my invested dollars to return a profit. Whether you’re investing in through a TSP, 401k, 403b, IRA, or other investment vehicle the TradeMyTrades Risk-Cash Ratios will provide you the needed edge to be a successful investor.
It’s my hope you, too, will find our money management system meets your needs as you invest to reach financial security. I believe the TradeMyTrades system of investing is the easiest and most convenient self-management investment method for the majority of retail investors to achieve an edge and a margin of safety.
Soon, I hope to welcome you as a new member to the TradeMyTrades community.
