Blog Ep 93: From IT Professional to Successful Trader

In this episode of The Wall Street Coach Podcast, I had the pleasure of interviewing Stan Ivanov, a senior technology executive turned successful trader. Stan’s journey from Bulgaria to Las Vegas is a fascinating tale of transformation and determination.

Despite experiencing setbacks, including “blowing up” his account multiple times in the early years, Stan remained resilient and committed to mastering the markets. Transitioning from a corporate IT career to full-time trading, Stan’s trading style is heavily influenced by his emotional awareness and problem-solving skills honed in the technology sector. What sets Stan apart is his emphasis on self-awareness, accountability, and integrity in decision-making. For Stan, how he feels about a trade is just as important as what he thinks.

Beyond trading, Stan remains actively involved in the trading community, leveraging his experience to mentor and support aspiring traders. Time is his most valuable currency, and he chooses to invest it in endeavors that have a meaningful impact.

Intrigued to learn more about Stan’s journey and trading philosophy? Tune in to the full podcast episode for invaluable insights and inspiration!
