Chris Claflin: A Futures Trader Who Dropped Out of School
In episode 48 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Chris Claflin, a Futures trader and the host of the new Uncharted Podcast. I strongly recommend you check out his podcast. It has a very impressive & uncommon touch to it!
Chris started to trade in College. Learning to trade wasn't an easy task while he was pursuing studies of become a dentist. Soon, however, Chris dropped out of school as he realized he could make more money trading than working in dentistry.
These days, Chris is primarily a trend trader. That means he focuses on entering in the direction of strong market trends, hoping that the trend will keep going. Several traders interviewed on the Desire To Trade Podcast adopt this trading style. What distinguishes Chris, however, is that he often looks to catch up trends within a larger trend. His trades are therefore in alignment.
