On May 30, I was afforded the incredible opportunity of speaking with Tom and Tony of Tastytrade on their ‘Future Stars” segment! Here’s a little bit about my experience:
My nerves, when riding up the elevator of TastyTrade HQ, were comparable to IV during the earnings season-- very high. My parents and I had arrived in Chicago three days earlier to soak up as much as we could of the windy city before heading back home after my TastyTrade interview. And yet despite seeing the beautiful campus of University of Chicago, the breathtaking views from the Chicago River at sunset, and the famous Portillo's hot dogs and Giordano's deep-dish pizza, it was the sheer joy of being in the TastyTrade studios that made our trip :)
From TT’s wooden communal table, I attempted to decipher each strategy of the mural looming before us, just as Tony, the trading giant (literally and figuratively) greeted us with a wide, welcoming grin. I had a great time talking to many of my favorite online personas. From Pete Mulmat, of the Hot Seat with Pete and WDIS Futures Edition, Beef, Frank “The Indoor Kid”, Dr. Data, and others, such as Josh and Jules, each member of the TastyTrade crew was approachable and insightful to talk to and learn from.
Tom and Tony’s smiles made the interview all the more fun! During the segment, I almost forgot we were being broadcasted to thousands (live!), as it felt more like a conversation than an interview. I enjoyed sharing about my passion for trading, favorite strategies, and my biggest takeaways from my experience as a whole. It was truly an honor to speak to my trading gurus :)
TastyTrade as been my dojo for investing since my first Buffalo Wild Wings trade and I am so grateful for the content they promote! A big thanks to my fellow TastyNation traders who reached out via my blog and Twitter; I really appreciated your encouragement and can’t wait share even more regarding my trading journey.
The “Future Stars” segment was such a rewarding experience and I know that it will be one to remember.
Stay tuned for more posts from NishaTrades!
