Jim McQuarrie, aka JAM The Trader, is a highly motivated and detail-oriented trader and management professional with 16 years experience in screen-based trading, trading systems, and educational programs designed for self-directed traders around the world. JAMs trading experience includes equities, options, trade and money management, trading system development, mentoring traders, trading psychology, and market analysis.
As a business entrepreneur, JAM has successfully built and sold businesses since 1994. While directing his businesses, he also immersed himself as a self-directed trader and quickly built a portfolio of systems and educational programs. Many of these systems and programs were technically sound, but lacking in key areas required for a consistent, disciplined approach to trade for a living.
JAMs experience as a business professional over the years led him to realize that success as a trader is more than just technical capabilities and analysis to execute entries and exits. Rather, learning how to trade for a living means learning how to trade as a business with a business plan and disciplined business approach for earning profits.
In 2007, JAM founded Strategic Day Trading which develops discretionary and automated trading systems and educational programs for self-directed traders around the world. Headquartered in West Palm Beach, FL, Signal Trading offers and invites traders from all experience levels to join its live education and trading rooms where they can benefit from its unique Belt Ranking System which creates a path for traders to follow as they wish to progress in their trading careers.
