Director, Cryptocurrency Trading
Sam Shames started trading what he saw, energy stocks/ETFs, and crude. He began trading index futures and equities in 2006 as markets were reaching a crescendo. After seeing the effects that central banks and financial derivatives had on the market, he became determined to understand the nature of market behavior and the psychological and technical levels that drive price. Learning how to make money in any market was the most important lesson from this time. As an aggressive swing trader, Mr. Shames works to understand the markets through technical analysis and recognize the psychology and correlations of each chart. His experience has lead him to join the Simpler Trading team and share profitable trading ideas with the Simpler Trading members.
