About DIYtrades

headshotHey, it’s Jason (the founder of DIYtrades).

I’m a full-time trader, book-reader, husband, and daddy.

So glad you’ve stopped by to read this page.


Here are a few more Very Important Facts you need to know:

  • I spent six years in the Army, two of those years were Afghanistan and Iraq. That makes me a war veteran. 🙂
  • I’ve managed teams in telecommunications and fintech but also took plenty of calls for tech support back in my day.
  • I alternate between tea and coffee as part of my morning ritual.
  • I get to the gym at least 4x per week, or brisk run in the neighborhood, and maintain a healthy (mostly high fat, low carb) diet.
  • I practice Intermittent Fasting (IF) daily.
  • I have a subscription to Netflix, Hulu, YoutubeTV, Disney+, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+…..doesn’t everyone.
  • I live in Jacksonville, Florida

Becoming a Full-Time Trader


My current trade setup 

I started trading in 2011, and I have spent the past nine years fine-tuning my ability to be a consistently profitable trader.

DIYtrades is a place where my goal is to share what I know to help others trade for a living.

There’s more, but I’ll write that some other time.
