At ETNtrade, our goal is to give our ETNmembers the best possible resources available. Our top priority is to bring in the best Elite Traders we can find. While we are looking for people who are great Traders, more importantly, we are looking for people who are great Educators as well.
Every Wednesday, we invite one of our Elite Traders to teach a class in their respective expertise. With this, our Members are presented with many different perspectives of the Market, and are always working with true Experts in each area of trading, not just with one self-proclaimed jack-of-all-trades. This is what truly makes ETNtrade the most unique trading organization in the world today.
Please allow us to introduce our Elite Team of ETNtraders:
"The best way to succeed in life is to help others succeed in theirs."
From 2001 to 2008, Dave Meldeau, OptionDave, traveled the world introducing Traders of all backgrounds to the protection and profitability of the Options Market. Since then, he has offered these same opportunities to a broader audience through the use of an Online Training Platform. For this reason, when you join one of OptionDave’s ETNtrade Classes, it is not uncommon to have traders from 5 continents all in attendance together.
OptionDave has taught students from over 18 countries, including the USA, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Sweden, Australia, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Brazil, and many countries in Africa. He has had the pleasure of introducing over 20,000 to some of the Option Market's most coveted strategies that have helped his Students protect their assets and create profits no matter what the Market throws at them.
"True personal wealth is the result of focused and educated effort."
Growing up in the asset management business, Dan was fortunate at an early age to have an insider’s look into our financial markets and the available vehicles for growth, income & protection. Taking this background to Yale University added immediate clarity to the value of the source of a person’s education. Learn from those that actually do it, and the most successful investors in the World have one common thread…the options market. Why? Simply put, probability for consistent success with limited capital risk. It was 1991 when the true education began, working with the best Economics Professors the Ivy League has to offer - both active and retired hedge-fund managers who consistently challenged the typical buy & hold philosophies.
In 2002, Dan began his own journey into teaching others the arsenal of investment strategies he has learned, developed & used to personally prosper. After 9 years of teaching, while still actively trading, Dan has helped tens of thousands of individuals realize their true capacity & worth as investors. It is a reward far beyond any financial achievement, and ETNtrade will perpetuate this commitment to excellence as THE resource for those that are truly serious about managing their personal portfolio.
