Taylor Horton

VP of Directional Options Strategies

Taylor got his introduction to trading at a young age from his father, Jim, who runs his own wealth management company. When Taylor was 17, Jim found some videos online of John Carter and shared them with Taylor. This became his first introduction to the world of options, with John quickly becoming a role model, and someone Taylor would ultimately try to model his game after.

Taylor has always been attracted to taking a different path and did not like being locked into the structure of a typical college-career-focused life; he loves that the stock market allows for that different path, one that can be made your own and allows one to express themselves and “eat what you kill”. With this mindset at age 16, Taylor made a deal with his father that he would finish high school online from home, so he could continue trading on his own at the same time. Since then, Taylor has not looked back and continues to focus fully on improving his trading every day.

Taylor’s philosophy in life as well as in trading is Kobe Bryant’s “Mamba Mentality” or the belief that life is a constant quest to be the best version of oneself. He combines this belief with the thought that trading is very psychological in nature, and that in order to master trading one must apply the following concepts: consistency, discipline, and patience. Taylor is also a strong proponent of separating oneself from the money, he believes a trader should focus less on the profits, and more on the process that leads to the profits. Profits are simply a byproduct of good trading!

Taylor’s trading style focuses on trading high-probability setups with high-probability options strategies. His major focus is trading weekly, 3-day, and daily squeezes in trending stocks, utilizing credit spreads to even further stack-the-odds in his favor. Over the years, he has found success in mastering a single setup, the squeeze, and doesn’t waste time focusing on any other setup. Taylor is a strong proponent that one can make a career out of trading nothing but the squeeze setup!

Taylor’s trading style, tools, mindset, philosophy of life, and focus on mastering effective set-ups makes him the perfect person to learn from if you are looking for a different path in life. He seeks to teach and educate others on making trading a rewarding and legitimate career path which allows for freedom, gratification, and success based on your own efforts and hard work.
