Chuck Phillips has been trading since about 1997 while growing his karate dojo. Trading started with stocks but quickly grew into options trading covered calls so that he could let the trade play out while working on the dojo. He now specializes in short term credit spreads but has recently branched out into futures and forex trading as well. Teaching and helping others comes naturally to Chuck. He has been helping people throughout his varied careers as a senior architectural drafter and designer, computer applications engineer, karate sensei and now as a trader helping others learn not just the mechanics of trading but also the discipline needed to be a successful trader.
