NYSE Floor Tour and the Story of Becoming a Profitable Trader in One Year

Dear Traders,

I am writing this letter to you with some excellent news. First though, our very own Thor Young was invited to the New York Stock Exchange and received a tour of the NYSE’s trading floor. He was also able to discuss many important technical aspects of trading with designated market makers (the people who once were referred to by the NYSE as specialists). I know Thor deepened his knowledge of how the market works and how we can understand its mechanisms. I sense we can look forward to hearing about all of this from Thor in the chatroom in the coming days. I unfortunately could not join him in NYC as I have recently returned from England and the EU, and I am required to stay 14 days in Canada before being able to enter the United States (thanks to COVID-19 rules and regulations).

Regardless, Thor and Carlos and several of our members in the Big Apple held a small meetup and I am really happy that Thor had this opportunity on behalf of all of us. The important news I want to share is that the NYSE knows about us, and there are discussions taking place now on how we can work together more closely to educate the new generation of traders. As an exchange, they are motivated to help traders to trade better and smarter, and thus provide a path for everyone’s success. Stay tuned for more news about BBT working with the NYSE.

In other community happenings, Simon and Aiman have teamed up to develop a series of educational materials (and homework!) for our traders, making use of our new web-based replay training program. If you would like to receive weekly lessons designed to improve your trading, including a review of the week’s Stocks in Play and potential strategies you could have used, please go to and sign up to our email list. You can expect to receive three emails each week with information from Aiman and Simon that is focused on expanding your knowledge after the closing bell has rung.

Simon and Aiman have also held an amazing podcast style discussion on YouTube about Simon’s recent success in trading. You can watch their show here, and I ask you to show your support by liking, subscribing, and/or commenting here.

I am back home now and I look forward to trading next to you from the Vancouver office. If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected] or reply to this email. As ever, I am here to support you in your trading endeavors.

To your success,
