My basic trading philosophy can be summed up by one simple quote:

Traders4ACause Ticket and DVD Giveaway

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry, so many of you have such great stories, this was a very difficult decision to make. Congrats to the winner, Matt P. (profitly user "Primez")! Matt truly stood out when it comes to giving back, he is a frequent chatroom contributor, going out of his way to help newer traders and answer their questions. But even more importantly, Matt spent time in the Marines, putting his trading aspirations on hold until he was able to return home. He's hungry to learn, not follow, and I know he's going to make the most of this opportunity. Thank you for your service Matt, I hope the conference is a great experience!

Last year, I was fortunate enough to attend the first annual stock conference and charity event, Traders4ACause. The event was absolutely loaded with talented traders and great speakers, but more importantly, it was about giving back. This year's event is September 25-27 in Las Vegas, and I highly recommend it to anybody who is available during that time frame.

Unfortunately, this year I am unable to attend Traders4ACause due to my upcoming wedding - which I'd say is a pretty damn good excuse. However, legitimate reason or not, I knew I still wanted to be a part of this great event in some way. After I discussed with Nate how I could best contribute, I decided to become one of the sponsors for the event. However, this leaves me with two tickets that I am unable to use! So, I have decided to give these two tickets away, along with a free copy of my new DVD to each person.

The first person I chose to give a ticket and DVD to was an obvious choice, Christian Nowakowsi, also known as "Stock Choices" (he doesn't know yet until he reads this blog). I had the pleasure of meeting Christian a few months back over dinner with a few great traders. He's a young guy who started out a lot like myself, trading mostly OTCs, but he has since made the transition to listed stocks. I admire his adaptability and dedication to making himself a better trader. Christian also shares a great blog dedicated towards trying to help other traders improve. He is an active member of the trading community, and I know he will capitalize on all of the opportunities the conference and DVD have to offer.

That leaves one ticket and DVD to distribute, and at the moment I have no idea who deserves it. So leave your comments below! Tell me about how you're dedicated to the market, tell me about how you give back, tell me about how this DVD and conference will help you! I know I'm going to get a lot of great feedback, and I will select one winner by the end of August 5th! There is only one condition - you MUST be able to attend the conference in Vegas from September 25-27. If you're going to potentially win a ticket, I want to be sure that you can actually use it! Even if you don't win, I highly recommend you attend anyway!

I look forward to all of your feedback. Good luck everyone!
