On the record

Danielle Shay is a self-made trader, market analyst, and expert commentator. She originally got into trading on a quest for financial freedom, with the goal of living wherever she pleased and taking care of her young son. She is now the VP of Options at Simpler Trading where she trades, runs analysis in the trading room, teaches classes and webinars, and writes on a weekly basis. As a former teacher with a passion for trading, it’s her goal is to help traders grasp the basics that make trading simpler — no matter their skill level.

Sam specializes in options, equities, and macro trading using short-term signals. He started trading in 2007. He began his career by trading index futures and equities intraday and later branched out to options which are now his trading vehicle. Sam is primarily a shorter term swing trader but as long as the setups and market momentum signal continue to be valid, he will hold the trade. He will also cut a trade if any of the underlying conditions change, take profits, and look for a re-entry when the clarity of the trade setup returns.
