I have seen astonishing results from him on complex projects that have offered great attention to detail where quality was never compromised. Additionally, he has a very positive attitude and truly embraces learning all there is to know about trading. I have never seen an equity analyst consistently show such strong desire to learn trading that I simply could not turn him down. I knew that with him on board our trading team would continue to accelerate.
Although Tiecheng has consistently exceeded in most of his trading positions as a trader, he is constantly looking for new challenges. The best example of his intelligence shone through a modified strangle option strategy he initiated. Before the stock market plunged nearly 1000 points on May 6th, he proposed to me that we should gradually establish a strangle option position that plays markets volatility due to Greece concern. That position alone has generated tremendous return to our portfolio.
Tiecheng Zhang has worked as a trader for almost a year. The thing that impresses me the most about him is how he deals with pressure. The stock market is quite competitive and often tough to break into, and many with high hopes do not survive the pressure. One terrible trade in the industry sometimes can destroy a good trader mentally. However, Tiecheng always managed to turn a negative event into a positive learning experience and never makes the same mistake twice.
It is my belief that a postgraduate education will help Tiecheng to truly succeed by improving his talents. I am confident that you will find him to be a student whose talents will shine further through your graduate program. It is my hope that you will accept his admission to your university.
