Need for adrenaline and excitement, dreams of financial freedom, or just a side hustle to make the days more interesting? Well, regardless of where you stand, one thing is certain: the number of online traders is rising.
Some experts attribute this sudden rise to boredom, but Zack Morris, a highly successful trader and Co-Founder of Atlas Trading, says that the reason for such a rise in the popularity of trading can be attributed to the easy access that online brokerage platforms such as Robinhood offers.
Even though day trading promises insane returns and earnings, several studies and research show that average traders will always lose their money. However, Zack Morris explains that beginner traders shouldn’t bother themselves with these claims because the stock market is a proven mechanism for wealth creation over longer periods; they only need to stay in the game long enough.
“Every beginning is challenging, and you should anticipate losing money on trades,” he says. “My initial trade was a disaster, but with additional research, my trading has improved, and I recently earned $12,000 in my first successful trade with GEVO. It was the first time I experienced what it’s like to profit from the stock market.”
Zack Morris further explains that besides doing a lot of market research, he also spent a lot of time discussing the various trading strategies with other traders in online chatrooms. “Key to success in the trading world is knowledge — the more you have it, the merrier,” he says. “I would spend my evenings conducting extensive stock market research and my mornings discussing headlines with some of the other traders at the time. That is how the outline for Atlas Trading came to be.”
According to Zack Morris, he initially created a paid chat room with a few other traders. It was a place where they could share their experiences and strategies. Eventually, Morris went on to create another chat room together with PJ Matlock: Atlas Trading.
Today, Atlas Trading is one of the world’s largest stock trading chat rooms. It has helped thousands of both experienced and new traders find their way in the trading world. With over 250,000 members and with new members joining every day, the Atlas Trading community offers a free way to access invaluable information and useful educational content on stock trading.
“The name came from me and my business partner PJ Matlock. We both have created this name, and it just grew into the community it is today with over 250k members,” Zack Morris says. “We regularly share our stock picks and other useful stock information along with other prominent traders.”
While a lot of traders like to keep their “trade secrets” well kept and hidden away from prying eyes, Zack Morris explains that his goal is to make the future of trading brighter by doing the exact opposite.
“I believe that trading shouldn’t be exclusive to a select few. That’s why I actively disclose my positions, my insights, and my strategies to my followers,” he says. “I want to help everyone interested in trading to learn how to become a successful trader and help them achieve their dreams of wealth and financial freedom.”
