Lessons from Trading (Mistakes)
by Frantz Herr

About the Blog

Even veteran investors make mistakes. Private investor, Frantz Herr, presents examples of mistakes he has made in order to help pinpoint bad tendencies and work on correcting them.  His mistakes may help you recognize similar issues in your own trading or reinforce those things you are doing right. These are all actual trades.

Frantz Herr

Frantz Herr is a private investor and writer of the blog, Lessons from Trading (Mistakes). Frantz bought his first stock in 1974 and has had a deep passion for investing most of his life. He retired from Merrill Lynch in 2017 after serving clients as a financial advisor for 32 years. He is now focused on managing his family’s portfolio.

Frantz has gone through numerous bull and bear markets in various asset classes during his investing life. Over the years he has narrowed his areas of investing interest and spends most of his time today thinking about two markets. He is a disciple of the William O’Neil CANSLIM methodology for growth stocks; and he tracks the market for gold and gold mining stocks. In 2016 he began to educate himself about Richard D. Wyckoff, and in 2018 became a client of Wyckoff Analytics. He has taken WTC Part I, WTC Part II (formerly Practicum), a variety of Roman’s special courses and is a regular participant on WMD.
