What ever happened to these traders?

  1. Steve Tvardek and SammySOESa? When I first joined ET, I remember seeing Steve's posts in the PNL thread and he was one of the most consistent traders here at the time.

    The other was SammySOESa, he had a pnl blog posted on his personal site and he was also pretty consistant. What made me remeber him was that he would consistantly have $600-$1000 but he was only trading 200-300 share lots at a time with a high win ratio.

    Any one know if these guys still trade? They both haven't posted on ET in a while but that's not really an indication of if they are still trading.
  2. What are/were the websites of these gentlemen ?
  3. I think steve tvar. tried trading futures and who knows, maybe it just didn't work out. I remember his listed stock trading became obsolete. I doubt he would be posting under a different alias. He probably couldn't make es trading work. Understandable.

    I also remember sammys journal, he was making money but wasn't doing anything special. Just scalping and some options plays i think. He may have blown up last year, he was trading mostly financials.
  4. Steve Tvardak got married, and presumably has a life (far away from this place, hopefully).

    SammySOESa, no idea?


    Google turned up this:

  6. Tvardek wedding announcement


    "The bridegroom, 28, is a self-employed Standard & Poor’s futures trader in Hoboken, N.J. His mother is until Aug. 31 the representative to Ecuador for the Inter-American Development Bank. His father is the director for trade finance and investment negotiations for the Treasury Department and is chief United States negotiator of international trade finance agreements."

    The Treasury Director is probably his father.
