So Long 2018!
2018 has been an amazing year for our community. We leave you with the following messages from the Bear Bull Traders Team.
Alright guys, so this is Andrew. I’m going to do the recap for the year
We at Bear Bull Traders would like to wish you and your family a very happy new year. We want to thank you for choosing Bear Bull Traders to be your community and for sharing your trading endeavors with us. Working with each one of you has been a significant pleasure.
We are truly humbled by our growth in 2018. In order to serve you better, we undertook some initiatives to make Bear Bull Traders a more effective learning and supporting community. Although we are still far from perfect, I would like to note some of the improvements we made this year:
– Added new team members: Ryan, Robert, Carlos, Abiel, Peter, William, and Norm.
– Updated the Bear Bull Traders website and forum.
– Moved our online webinar platform to a more advanced service provider.
– Added biweekly mentorship sessions for Lifetime members.
– Updated our Education Center with additional basic and advanced lessons, and updated all of our educational and training materials, including our introductory classes 1 to 5, with new strategies and up-to-date examples.
– Organized and attended membership meet ups across North America, from Mexico City and New York to Vancouver, San Diego and several spots in-between.
– Started a pilot mentorship program with six of our active traders in order to develop a well-planned structure for the future offering of mentorship to all of our members.
We would not be here without your support and engagement, and we are very much looking forward to hosting an even more useful and valuable community in 2019. Thank you, sincerely, for being part of Bear Bull Traders. Please always feel welcome to share your feedback with us so that we may serve you and our community better. We are always open to hearing from you. It’s your community!
Happy New Year! All the best in 2019!
Brian ‘Swinger and Double Bottom’ Pezim
As I reflect over the last year, I have a lot to be thankful for including being part of this awesome BBT community. Being part of this community has allowed me to meet many new great people (both online and in person) who all share a goal to become better traders and improve their financial situation. It has also given me the opportunity to share some of the experience and knowledge that I have gained over my many years of trading in the markets.
I have also learned a lot from our community – you should never stop learning and being open to other ideas. One big advantage of being involved with a group of people who share a common goal and interest is that you get new ideas or others may offer you a different perspective that you had not thought of before.
As many of you know, I also spent a significant part of 2018 writing and publishing my first book “How to Swing Trade”. As the year comes to a close, and we look forward to 2019, I know there will be some excellent swing trading opportunities. We want to provide our members with more of these trading opportunities and will be looking at ways to offer additional timely services in the New Year.
While the S&P is down on the year, many of our members prospered while others have been learning to trade during these volatile times in the market. I believe 2019 will be another great year for trading and I look forward to working with our community of traders. I also hope to meet more of our members as we continue to do meet-ups in various locations around the world.
I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019.
Abiel ‘Spock’ Guerra
As Andrew pointed out, 2018 has been a great year for BBT and this is a merit of all of us members of this community. We are truly a learning community with all the members’ contributions: daily recaps, blog posts, instructional videos, tools like journal templates and advanced hotkeys.
I want to thank you and appreciate all members support to this community, to my fellow staff members and to Andrew for setting the tone to build BBT as a true learning and support environment. As Bette Midler once said, “People are not the best because they work hard. They work hard because they are the best.” And you are the best! Happy New Year!
Carlos ‘Morning Markets’ Moreta
2018 has been amazing for my day trading career but I know for a fact it would have not been possible without the BBT community. The peer to peer support and experiences we share between all of our members is unbelievable and I am extremely thankful to be part of such an amazing community. I look forward to get into the chatroom every trading morning and interact with our BBT family, without each of you this community would not be as amazing at it is today.
As we move into 2019, I wish you and your families a Healthy and Happy New Year. The best is yet to come, let’s rock 2019 together!
Happy New Year Bear Bull Traders!
Norm ‘An $AAPL a Day’ Grunsfeld
For me, 2018 was a year of great changes, challenges, and excitement. I had the great fortune to change my hobby and passion for trading into my full-time career. Of course since the start, the journey has been full of ups and downs and more hard work than I could have ever imagined. I’ve also had more fun than I ever expected!
I’ve mentioned it in the chat and in recaps over the last several months, but I know that I could not do this without all of you in the BBT community. Truth be told, day trading can be quite boring and isolating much of the time when you’re doing it right. The support, insight, comradery, and fellowship that comes with being part of this community has been overwhelming. Getting to know many of you personally and sharing our experiences has been a very special part of it.
I’d like to thank each and every member of the BBT community, both members and fellow staff, for being a part of my journey in 2018. I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly and hope that I can pay it forward in 2019. I wish a happy and profitable 2019 to all of you, Happy New Year!

Peter ‘Take the Damn Trade’ Donnelly
Looking back on 2018, I realize that I have come to look forward to the start of every trading day, (starting with the Bear Bull Traders pre-market show), and miss trading desperately when the markets are closed. Despite the minute-by-minute whipsaw of emotions trading brings, flinging me from desperate panic to euphoric highs (and often back again!) in a matter of moments, I don’t want to be doing anything else. I love day trading for a living, and being part of our Bear Bull Traders community provides me the opportunity to share all those moments (highs and lows) with others who truly understand them. Thanks to all of our members who give our community its strength. I truly enjoy being part of it.
Together, we can take on the markets and help each other achieve so much more than we could on our own. I cannot wait for 2019 and look forward to whatever it throws our way.
Robert ‘The Hulk’ Heang
2018 has been the journey of a lifetime. Through many ups and downs together, we have forged a strong bond within this community–seasoned and new members alike.
To the many traders I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with during the past 12 months: I feel like I’ve gotten to know each and every one of you on a personal level. If not literally, then figuratively through the social consciousness shared by all traders. Thank you for helping me grow as a trader, and Bear Bull Traders grow as a community.
To those setting out on the learning curve: may your trading turn around like a 15-min Chart Reversal. To traders on a consistent path: I hope your progress continues to trend like an ABCD Pattern.
Full steam ahead into 2019. Happy New Year!
I just wanted to say thank you to everybody in the BBT community. Without you guys, we wouldn’t have the incredible content, interactions and amazing community that has grown exponentially in 2018. While you may not hear from me much, I am behind the scenes making sure the website is working as efficiently as possible and assisting with any support questions you may have.
I am super excited for 2019 and am looking forward to more interactions with the community as well as improving Bear Bull Traders in every way possible. I am excited for what’s to come and I know myself, Andrew and the rest of the BBT support team cannot wait for 2019. Here’s to a Happy, Healthy and profitable New Year for the BBT Family!
William ‘AdventureDogLA’ Hathaway
I want to personally thank each and every member of the Bear Bull Traders Community for an amazing 2018. Without all of you, there would be no community, there would be no chat, there would be no excitement, and there would be no personal growth for all of us. All of you make the community what it is, and you are the reason I am here. We learn together, we laugh together, we profit together, and we share painful losses together. Being with you each and every morning drives me to be better not only for myself, but for all of you.
We are in it to win it together, and we will Ride or Die together. Happy New Year and lets lets take 2019 to the Moon!
