What’s good friends? Welcome to Ticker Talk, a collaborative project to make some gains and track our progress along the way.

All of our crew uses different brokerages, so to showcase our trades we’re using paper trading apps. This month we’re experimenting with the simulator at Investopedia for the options trading and our main platform is Wealthbase.
