Mikes UseMike Trager

Michael Trager, is a friend and research colleague since 2008. Mike will be providing the alerts and triggers for the new “Early Warning Alerts” for Index ETFs going forward.

After a successful career as an endodontist in private practice for over 30 years he retired and now earns a living as a full time trader, market researcher and investor. His investing experience started while he was still actively practicing full time as he became interested in the Warren Buffett model of long term value investing, buying and holding stocks and mutual funds for a number of years. As he learned more about the use of options and technical analysis, he began to manage his portfolio more actively.

He embarked on a trading journey which has taken him from day trading futures contracts to his current preference for position trading of equity index derivatives and a few stocks utilizing mostly mean reversion set ups and a proprietary mix of timing indicators.

Today his trading is limited to a few trades per year as his indicators dictate – he tries to avoid overtrading and adheres to a philosophy that “less is more”.

Mike and Dennis have been trading and trade system research colleagues and friends since 2008. Mike writes monthly for the Art & Science of Active Trend Trading—Trader’s Report Newsletter. Additionally he provides “on target” observations of market conditions for the “Mid Week Market Sanity Check” training webinar for basic and premium ATTS members.
