about_corey-rosenbloom-tradingWe at Afraid to Trade are dedicated to providing any assistance we can to help you overcome fears, anxieties, and confusion brought about by trading the markets, and provide you with up-to-date information, education, and strategies that are designed to give you the edge you need to become more balanced, structured, consistent, and disciplined in your trading activities

We desire to provide a resource for you to gather information, build your pattern recognition skills, apply new techniques, and challenge the boundaries that may be keeping you from achieving your highest potential as a trader in the broad, ever-changing marketplace.

We place an emphasis on Technical Analysis and Quantitative Research principles and build our world-view combining foundational concepts from the early masters while incorporating cutting-edge concepts designed to unite new knowledge with the old.  We build our perspective from the top-down, starting with Inter-market analysis concepts, sector rotation strategies, and take them down through multiple-time frames and price structure analysis across various branches of Technical Analysis and trading strategies.

Start with our expanding Free Educational Resource Page, move to the Premium Content or perhaps take part in our Private Mentorship Program, and subscribe to the Daily Newsletter Service to tie all these concepts together and see these concepts play out across various markets and time-frames through multiple examples and price projections as they occur each day in real-time.


“Let’s overcome fear and engage in one of the most challenging, exciting, and rewarding activities out there!”
Mr. Rosenbloom’s interest in the stock market began as a junior in High School where his team won an investment challenge competition which drew him into investing actual money in the market using basic fundamental analysis.  Later, the Bear Market of the early 2000s would challenge these assumptions and force him into deeper study of market concepts – “There had to be a better way than Buy and Hold strategies”.

He was soon introduced to the concepts of price charting, or more formally known as “Technical Analysis” and the pattern recognition, along with indicator combinations, drew his attention sharply in that direction.  As the market began its recovery, he was participating as a momentum intraday trader, which soon gave way to broader swing-trading strategies.  He describes one of many “light-bulb” moments when he was introduced to Sector Rotation Concepts which seemed to make the price charts fit into a logical progression of expectations.  From there, he deployed options trading strategies which gave way to ETF trading, which itself finally gave way to active futures market trading tactics.

Mr. Rosenbloom holds a bachelor’s degree in both Psychology (cognitive research focus) and Political Science and later received a Master’s Degree in Public Affairs with a Business concentration.  He has completed Levels I, II, and III of the Market Technician’s Association’s Chartered Market Technician (CMT) program and is awaiting the official charter in early 2009.

He currently serves as an independent consultant, analyst, author, and educator.  He manages both personal and family accounts using the concepts discussed here, employing both long-term and active intraday trading strategies.
