‘One of the incredible things about America is the ability to try new things and start over if need be.’— Hiro Ababon —
In this episode of the Trading Justice Podcast, we welcome Hiro Ababon to the podcast. Hiro is a veteran of our community who started trading 3 years ago. He’s always been interested in investing, buying silver when he was 18 years old right after he joined the Navy. His family has deep roots in the military. His dad and mom met in the military in Japan. After coming to America, his stepdad spent 27 years in the Marine Corps. Hiro invested in jewelry companies, became a hard money lender and invested in rentals. At one point he had 48 rental units, a subway franchise, and other business interests. The 2008 crash forced him through bankruptcy. Being resilient, he never quit. He started his options trading business in 2016.
He said it best himself, describing his journey: ‘One of the incredible things about America is the ability to try new things and start over if need be.’ He’s spent time as an entrepreneur, an investor, a trader and in service of non-profit organizations. In August 2016, he attended a real estate investing seminar by Legacy Education which also offered stock market training. His original interest was to start his son Joshua in the business, but it’s evolved to where he’s doing it full time himself. The stock trading education is what he focused on and that’s what introduced him to Tackle Trading and put him on the current path he’s on. He is passionate about his family, his business interests and his ministry. This is an incredible person and an interview that you won’t want to miss.
Before that, Matt, Tim, and Mark review the current conditions in the financial markets in our Market Skyline. Stocks have been in an uptrend for some time now, but currently on a pullback. Will the trend continue, or will it correct? We discuss the technical, news and fundamental information across indices, currencies, commodities and more. Finally, we play a game of ‘Quote This’ where Mark reads quotes from companies and CEO’s and asks Matt and Tim if they can guess where they came from.
