Vader Trades

"Don't underestimate the force."

In 1977, a movie villain named Darth Vader first stated these landmark words. In the universe of Star Wars, the force is an energy that transcends any one person or thing. Like the markets, it is ubiquitous and powerful.

Darth Vader's warning inspires our approach to the markets. Too many people underestimate the markets. Trading based on "gut feel" or a "get rich quick" seminar can be exciting and easy, but market forces always prevail. They reward those who deploy a disciplined, time-tested approach.

Whatever you want to say about Darth Vader, he understood the force. That's why this community is called Vader Trades. We've built a career on understanding market forces and how traders capitalize on them in our portfolios.

The moderator AKA 'Vader'.. has a background in high tech product management and strategy from companies like Oracle, Schwab, Wells Fargo and a few startups which got acquired. He also at times consults for Venture Capital firms in the Bay Area. Previous to 2009 he also ran a family fund with AUM over $10M and is currently planning a new fund focused on short term trading opportunities.


We may hold 1-10 trades at one time. Risk no more than 1-5% of account on option trades and 1-20% for stock swing trades.
