My own story …

Welcome!

In my more than 13 years of stock trading experience I learned a lot from other traders. I attended multiple mentorship programs to deepen my trading knowledge and experience.

Today I trade growth and momentum stocks with a systematic strategy and a holding period from weeks to months for winning trades and days for losing trades. That's the style which perfectly fits to my personality.

I focus on discovering high potential, innovative companies which are able to grow their sales very fast and have a huge growth potential in future. That's where my passion is! I spend 95% of all my energy in doing research and find potential super stocks.

In Growth Traders Toolbox I want to share my knowledge with you. You get insights into my own trading, inspiration for your own trading or a good foundation to start your trading career.

All the best for you!

Julian

Happy students …

Important questions

  • Do I already need knowledge about trading and stocks?

    Yes! You should have a few years of stock market and trading experience. The content is easy to understand, but it requires that you already have basic knowledge about stocks and trading. If you have further questions, I like to answer them.

  • I want to invest long-term, is it the right content for that?

    No! My approach is active trading. You need to observe the markets every day and do research at the weekend. You cut losing trades actively and manage your winning trades. That has nothing to do with buy-and-hold or long-term investing.

  • Can I apply the lessons to international stocks?

    I only trade US equities because they are very liquid, there are low brokerage fees and you have access to a lot of information. I never tested the rules and approach with international stocks. So you have to do your own tests and see if they are applicable to stocks in other countries.

  • Can I contact you for help or further questions?

    Yes. You always have the possibility to ask questions and discuss about the content. I really like to help you and produce new videos about topics that covers most asked questions.

  • Am I able to profitable trade after I watched all videos?

    That's up to you. Growth Traders Toolbox is not a get-rich-quick video course. It's about learning to trade seriously. Successful trading needs multiple years of practice and experience. Growth Traders Toolbox is a great foundation to start your trading career or deepen your knowledge.

  • Do I need special (paid) trading software?

    I recommend several free and paid trading software in the videos. The most can be used in the free, non-paid versions. For more experienced traders I recommend paid software from Investor Business Daily, because they offer the access to proprietary ratings and fundamental data. I have no relationship to the companies and get no compensation from them!

  • Can I replace my day job after watching all the videos?

    I assume no! Generating all your income from trading needs years of experience, hard work, intensive planning and a lot of trading capital. The content I provide can help you to get on the right track and with enough capital and low expenses you maybe be able to generate all your income from trading, but that's a long way to go.

  • Do you swing or day trade?

    No! If you want to classify my style, I am a position trader. I hold winning trades for weeks or months and losers for days. I rarely take profits with profit targets and let the profits run instead. I am not a short-term trader (hours to days) and not interested to do that. It's not the style which fits to my personality.

  • Do you trade cryptos, forex or commodities?

    No. I trade stocks which are related to the crypto business or commodity stocks. Sometimes I trade ETFs or trusts which owns crypto or commodity stocks. But I rarely trade cryptos, currencies or commodities directly. My approach always includes fundamentals and story research. That's not given if you trade currencies or commodities.
