We have rounded the turn on our first six months of the SheCanTrade Podcast with Sarah Potter, and we begin the second half of our first year with a look at the market, which Sarah feels is due for a slight pull back....and then she makes a prediction what will happen when the S&P 500 Futures Index re-approaches the 2100 level of past resistance. Listen to find out what Sarah thinks could happen sometime this year! Also, we resume the coaching program with co-host Thomas Miller, who has been doing his trading homework, and is adopting one of Sarah's favorite patterns in a commodity market. Fasten your seat belt for a fast ride and learn one of Sarah's key market direction indicators and short-term timing methods as well. Sarah is an excellent coach and it appears Thomas is becoming a pretty good student as well. Perhaps this "assignment" is something you can put to practice in your own Trading Plan, and have Shecantrade review your trading plan.
Join Sarah Potter of SheCanTrade.com as she has a conversation with Peter Hans, CEO and Co-Founder of Harvest Exchange (www.hvst.com).
Harvest is a platform that builds public and private digital communities across the financial services sector and delivers more content that the Financial Times, as Peter says in the show. Explore what Harvest has to offer as Sarah and Peter discuss the access to better and better financial information to retail investors.
The market continues to see-saw upward, as Sarah has been predicting, resulting in some good trades in the shecantrade.com trading room. In Episode 24 of the SheCanTrade Podcast, Sarah Potter and Thomas Miller discuss the market, in light of the up and down "new norm" as Sarah describes. With perhaps one of the most descriptive and spot-on reviews of the market thus far in our podcast series, Sarah dissects how to handle choppy waters. We also discuss "V" tops and bottoms, when price makes a sudden stop and reverses the other direction. Sarah has some excellent coaching points on how to incorporate these patterns into your trading plan.
Join Sarah Potter on Episode 23 of the SheCanTrade Podcast. Developing a trading plan is the most critical component of Sarah's methodology. All trading decisions should not be randomly determined based on moving conditions, but should parallel a carefully thought-out trading plan in advance, then executed when market conditions fit that plan. Also, it is important to re-evaluate our trading plan regularly to make sure the evidence we are collecting is valuable in our live trading situations. Sarah coaches Thomas through trades in REGN (Regneron) and AXP (American Express) and in the process shares relevant wisdom that you can apply in your own options trading plan and trade executions.
Join Sarah Potter and Thomas Miller for a look at this week's market. If you've been frustrated by the lack of good trades lately, Sarah talks about how to sort through the clutter and find some great trades. Sarah discusses how buying options as opposed to selling has kept her on the right side of the market lately. Are we at a top, or is there more room to go? Sarah will look at the S&P 500 charts to analyze the possibilities. This is a very relevant podcast that will help you navigate through the current market volatility.
In this SheCanTrade podcast, Sarah Potter and TJ focus again on charts, the broad market and current market conditions in light of the looming FOMC meeting on April 16, 2016. This year has certainly proven to be active with steep drops and equally prolific ascents to spring heights. Will it continue? How will the market react to both options the Fed has - to raise rates again slightly, or to leave things where they are. These external factors affect our trading and this is podcast will help you shape your trading strategy going into the second quarter.
In this episode, Sarah and TJ make a joint appearance - something we don't ever see in the live trading room, only here on the SheCanTrade Podcast! Together they look at the broad market, discuss some particular past trades like Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and look ahead to the FOMC meeting next week. Join us for this combined perspective from the two traders from the live trading room at http://shecantrade.com
The broad market is at a critical level with overhead resistance that will have to be digested and broken through in order for this market to advance and SheCanTrade podcast host Sarah Potter goes to the charts to illustrate what could be ahead short-term. We also have another conversation about the psychology of trading, and Thomas Miller introduces his new book, “Fear Busters” in a conversation with Sarah about how emotional programming can affect our trading. The tips you’ll hear in this SheCanTrade podcast could be applied to virtually any area of life, especially trading.
Join Sarah Potter, founder of www.shecantrade.com as she interviews Kirk Du Plessis, founder and head trader of www.optionalpha.com. Kirk and Sarah both trade options for a living, although they approach trading from different perspectives. You will see how these two options traders harmonize not only into an invitation to trade together in the future but also their shared vision of teaching effective, open and honest trading styles within their respective trading rooms and teaching programs. This is a great conversation that will broaden your horizon and give you new approaches to trading. Kirk Du Plessis also hosts a weekly options trading podcast which is available in iTunes and on his website.
The topic turns to oil in Episode 17 of the SheCanTrade podcast with Sarah Potter and Thomas Miller. Traders are fixated on oil prices, wondering where trades might exist. Sarah and Thomas discuss the dynamics behind these ultra-low prices and why picking the bottom could be a tough call. This is an informative conversation on why we are where we are, and what fundamental triggers will need to be in place for prices to go back up. Also, tracking back five times to 1986, when oil bottomed and turned, the upside ranged from 200 to 500 percent gains, so this is definitely a sector worth keeping an eye on. Sarah also shares her thoughts on trading in volatile markets like we are experiencing now.
Episode 16 of She Can Trade with Sarah Potter – it’s earnings season and Sarah and co-host Thomas Miller explore how earnings season affects your trading. As Sarah points out, earnings releases add a risk component that you have to factor into your trading and she explains her philosophy of successful trading that has made her “SheCanTrade” style so popular in the trading community. Sarah minimizes her risk, and earnings is one time to pay extra attention to the risk component. Join Sarah for this excellent discussion on how to manage the roadblocks during earnings season.
Welcome to Episode 15 of the SheCanTrade podcast with Sarah Potter. The markets are crazy and zany again this week, yet Sarah and TJ were able to have a spectacular week in the live trading room last week so this podcast we review three trade setups last week in WMT, CMG and LNKD. Plus, Sarah takes a look at the S&P 500, discussing if it might be forming a technical double bottom, or an “h” pattern, as she likes to observe. Perhaps it is, maybe it isn’t. Time will tell. Tune in to find out more on her outlook for the market.
Description: This week is a special interview with Sarah and Scott Andrews, Co-Founder and CEO of Investiquant (https://www.investiquant.com/) - an innovative financial services company helping traders and active investors achieve their goals using robust historical market analysis and quantified edges. Prior, he co-founded 'Master The Gap' and SciQuest (symbol: SQI), which he took public as CEO.

This is an informative podcast that will resonate with traders on any level.
It's been another volatile week in the markets but last week was quite a profitable one in the Shecantrade trading room. In Episode 13, we discuss how to approach the volatility from a price movement standpoint, looking at how stocks move individually. Sarah had several profitable trades last week. We review trades she made on Facebook, McDonald's and Macy's.
In the first Shecantrade podcast of 2016, we explore the market volatility that closed 2015 and has extended into 2016. This certainly affects options trading and Sarah shares some of her initial thoughts on how to approach the new year. These are times to be cautious and respect what is going on, so the best place to hang out is to join us in the live trading room at www.shecantrade.com.That's where we will be able to best consider each day's unique characteristics and adapt to the strategy for the week as it unfolds.
