In this interview, Steven Du will be sharing with us his life experience as a successful trader, his success stories, a few tips on trading and some opportunities available on the Steven Dux Platform.
Please tell us your name and about yourself?
My name is Xiuxian Du. I’m also known as Steven Du or more commonly, Dux. I was born in Chongqing, China and I come from a complex home.
I was raised with a strong will and an open mind for business. In China, I was a bad boy, so much so that it reached a point where I was borderline failing my classes. Thankfully, in my early teen years I came to America for a fresh start. I was determined to make money and take care of my parents.
Being an international student, my options were very limited when it came to what type of work I could do. Eventually I found my calling through one of my classmate’s spontaneous ideas during the summer. I opened up a trading account with TD Ameritrade with my friend. Immediately, I realized this was how I was going to make my money. In my head it was the only option I had.
Opening that trading account started me down my path of due diligence. I studied all the trading books I could afford at a half price book store. In addition, I looked online and found a few Stock gurus.
I spent a lot of money learning information that was either wrong or outdated. I also found that there are a lot of fake gurus out there just selling courses, but never cared about their students. That’s one of the leading reasons why I made a decision to create an educational service that filters out all the useless information to make things simple and help people out if they are broke college student like me that can’t afford all the courses out there.
In college, my major was environmental engineering. I love to create stuff and make complicated stuff simple. But back when I was going to school, I didn’t have enough funds to support my idea of building different engineering models.
That’s the reason I wanted to make some money in the stock market. Now I’m known as the guy that turned $27,000 into $4 million with penny stocks. I’m even teaching people how I did it through my education service.
What is the Steven Dux platform all about and what services do you provide?
The Steven Dux platform is how I offer my help to those who would follow my footsteps. It’s the second step into becoming consistently profitable. The first step you have to make on your own. Our services provide a virtual educational environment in chat rooms, databases, webinars, DVDs, stats reports, and more.
The concept of all my trading strategies are based on psychology and statistics. We use both of the factors to predict what the exact winning percentage is on each pattern. That’s why we create databases to track all the numbers and trades, do live webinars to help people to read the stock market charts so they can have better probabilities of winning in the market better, and a DVD course to teach people the basics of trading, plus all the other services listed on the site.
Tell us more about you summits and Webinars, how does it work and what do we expect?
Webinars are where we look at the market together akin to coming up to the teachers desk asking for help. You should expect a competitive environment that’s first come first serve and the teacher has helpers. If you want to take your education to the next level, you have to enroll as one of my Freedom Challenge students. Only then will I know you are serious and have taken the first step to invest yourself. In the webinar you can expect to see how I trade and provide assistance in reading the market better 2-3 times a week in the morning.
What is your Strategic Database all about?
Our Statistic Database records past trades’ data. On the first level, it contains basic information including entry, exit, date and symbol. The statistic database is based on our Trading Techniques DVD which introduced the 8 main patterns of my trades. In our Statistics Database, we categorize all past trades data into corresponding patterns. In short, the first level contains all of my trades that fits the pattern in our trading techniques DVD, and the data were categorized into 8 different pattern groups. At the second Level, we calculate each of the recorded pattern’s yearly, monthly, and weekly win rates. We also calculate my adjusted equity curve on each of the patterns based on 1,000 share blocks. This way, the techniques provide an unbiased result when trying to rationalize the profit to be expected out of a certain pattern for a certain period of time.
What are the importance of your Analytic Report?
The importance of our Monthly Statistics Analytical Report is about its visualization of the data. We are aiming for a clearler, simpler solution in tracking data and in the usefulness of each of the data that was tracked. Based on the visualization, our clients may utilize them to understand the relationships of the index they are tracking on their own. It is not an inclusive representation of what is recommended in data tracking. It acts as a template for our clients when they are trying to build or improve their stocks data tracking sheet.
What solutions do you provide on Live Trading?
During live trading, I go over all of our student’s questions in the recorded webinar or dvd course. Most importantly, people can watch me trade and analyze a stock in real time, so in the long run they will become self sufficient and trade by themselves.

You always get 4 sessions even if you can’t make it to a certain session.
What else would you like people to know?
People have the wrong mindset when they consider an educational service. They want to get rich quick but that is not how reality tends to work. Trading in the market is just like playing sports. It takes years of practice to get good. So people need to be patient because it takes time.
