About Alex Chia

Hi, my name is Alex Chia. I’m a futures trader and a dividend investor.

Back in 1999, I started my trading journey and in 2001, I made my very first major loss.

Because of this, I started picking up courses, books and videos on trading and investing. That was a hard and confusing times. I made a lot more mistakes and blew my account at least two more times.

It was not until 2010, when things start to make sense to me. I can see clearer, make better decision and sort of, able to predict where the market is going. My trades get better. Slowly, I break even and eventually, turns a profit.

To be clear, I’m not a millionaire. I’m not rich in anyway, I don’t have a Degree in Finance, nor I ever worked in any major financial company. I don’t consider myself a professional trader, but I’m a good retail trader. Everything I learned, were through the School of Hard Knocks and experiences.

Today, I trade the E-Mini Dow Jones Futures and invest into REITs. These are my expertises and focus.
