Operating a family farm, Michelle Volmering has been actively involved in raising, growing and delivery of commodities since 1980, specializing in grains, milk, meats and sugar. In 1987, she began investing in individual equities and mutual funds to provide additional protection and balance for long term retirement. The more she learned, the more her interest and curiosity grew and in 2002, she added futures and options trading to her portfolio.
In September 2003, Michelle's career path changed from being a Registered Nurse to being an active trader and educator in the financial markets. As an Instructor, she enjoys helping Online Trading Academy students by contributing to Power Trader Nation Community, Pro picks, Mastermind Community and being a PTN Radio guest.
