Jeff is the publisher of the "Trade in the Zone" newsletter and Trade in the Zone Blog (http://www.tradeinthezone.com/). Jeff has been trading and educating investors for 20 years. He has given lectures at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University, taught night courses for adults at area high schools and has been interviewed by a local financial radio show. No matter what the market does in any given year (up 15%, down 15% or flat), there are dozens and dozens of stocks that go up 100%+ per year. His job is to find these new stocks and help people make more money than they ever thought possible. For more expensive stocks, he likes to use call options (what he calls POWER PLAYS) to get the most bang for the buck while defining the risk. His focus is on swing trades (he wants dollars, not dimes).
