Trade Exchange Founder Interview Series - 1Q2021
We’ve recently conducted several one-on-one interviews between Trade Exchange’s founder and CEO Mike Anton and expert stock pickers. In each, Mike talks with the expert about their experience and investment discipline and philosophy. We have them analyze recent trades and discuss the “whys” behind each, as well as how they select the expert’s overall approach.

Mike has had a 60% return and an 80% win rate across all of his picks since partnering with us.
Serge Berger - The Steady Trader
Serge Berger’s approach focuses more on big picture themes. As of late February 2021, 75% of Serge’s picks were winners and he was up over 40% across all of his ideas. Many of Serge’s picks were in household names like Bank of America, Chevron, Apple and Disney along with ETFs. Serge talks about how he uses ETFs as a way to make an initial move into a sector, then moving into individual names.
The Alpha Chartist - Tim Fortier
Tim Fortier of Alpha Chartist talks about his experience and evolving approach to identifying ideas. He began his career finding “cup and handle” formations on printed stock charts received in the mail. The tools have evolved and Tim has added more to his arsenal, but this discipline remains. Tim focuses on fundamentals like risk management, the power of compounding and removing emotion from trading. Mike and Tim discuss a couple of example trades – the first being HEXO – a company in a strong sector with a strong earnings, revenue and EDITDA profile. They also discuss Sorrento Therapeutics, which emerged from two of Tim’s screens: a strong-performing sectors and high options volume.
