Anyone Up to the Challenge of Mentoring?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I was curious to know if any highly successful experienced traders are up possibly speaking to and masterminding with me. I have been trading commodity futures for 5 years and have been day trading them for the past year. I’m very pleased with my system and strategies I’ve developed however there are some changes I have to make with my mindset as it pertains to properly executing my system.

 

I’m looking to learn how a highly successful trader thinks and view the markets. I’m not looking to trade anyone’s system, instead l’m looking to understand how consistently successful traders perception and behaviour works. I’m still young at 27 years and have a ton to learn.

 

I would be incredibly grateful if anyone would share some of their views of how they have gained the consistency they have achieved. They can trade any market because I’m only interested learning how they view the markets and what kind of mindset they have.

 

I would love to have the opportunity to speak to someone for only 30-60 minutes a week. Just to touch base and heed and expert advice. I have a huge passion for trading the markets and define trading success as properly executing my trading system and strategies. I’m getting closer and understand it is a process.

 

I’m not sure how to return the favour yet, but I will come up with something. I know this may be strange to ask, but if I don’t put it out there I’ll never know!

 

Please post me here if your up to it, and then we can move forward from that.

 

Thanks for your time everyone.

Well one can't fault you for trying to economize on this element of your development, however I doubt that any highly successful professional will be willing to spend much time with you (not impossible but I believe highly improbable). My suggested solution is posted in your other thread. I suggest you approach this in a businesslike manner and find a skilled professional to help you on an hourly fee basis. Depending on your level of motivation, I think you may realize your goals sooner, or at the very least you will end up with a good understanding of what might be holding you back.

 

Good luck

Steve

Hey Steve,

 

Thanks for posting your solution. I appreciate that. That’s a great option and probably a better route that what I was thinking. I should have re-framed my question. I'd be happy to speak with another individual trader having consistent success earning $250K+. As it pertains that my annual goal and I have yet to come close to hitting the target.

 

However, with that said, it may be best just to invest in the service and gain my personal experience with the experts anyway. Or do both.

 

Great ideas Steve, I'm also in the process of touching base with an NLP technician.

 

Thanks,

Ryan:)

Hi Ryan,

 

I highly recommend working with someone within your area that you can actually meet, have a drink, and discuss your trading. Though the internet provides a great environment for information to flow freely, matters like trading ought to be discussed, tweaked, reviewed, etc... in person; in a business like manner. I interact with a few traders myself on a weekly basis just to brush off ideas, design strategies, etc...

 

I may be worth while for me to build something that allows members to find traders in their area.

Hi Soultrader

 

First off thanks for founding a great place for traders to network and mastermind. Yes, I absolutely agree with you that it’s much better belly to belly. I’m up in Vancouver, Canada (BC) and I know there are tons of traders here. I just haven’t made the decision to get into contact with anyone. Actually, I’ve been trading for over 5 years now and in the past week this is the first time I’ve ever got into contact with other traders. Stubbornness and Ignorance could play a role here! I suppose that all changed when a friend told me your going to have to do it on your own, but you cant do it alone.

 

Thanks for the great tips. With that said, if anyone is located out near Vancouver, Canada shoot me a post or an email. I’d love to meet up and bounce some ideas around.

 

The ability to network with other traders in their location is a great idea.

 

Thanks again,

Ryan:)

I've found many traders who profess to be consistently profitable, but are not willing to share actual data. I've joined local meetups of traders, and still all I find are losers, still trying to learn to be profitable. Even if I found a mentor who charges for services, I would still want to see records of trading activity over the last year to convince me that their fees are worth it.

 

I was lucky to find a mentor in my darkest hour. This man spent about 60 (Not a typo) hours a week with me for nine months. That just doesn't happen normally. He never charged me a dime. It was simply an act of kindness on his part. Be honest about your situation and you may attract somebody like that.

That shows that good things can happen to anyone provided that they want something bad enough and they can be honest about it. Glad to hear that and I hope it was helpful to you.

 

One of the bigest mistake,begining retail traders make, is to not be honest about their performance, costly to the trader and the to the trading community at large, because they help perpetuate the illusion that to trade successfuly is too hard.

 

 

Regards..

In my opinion, only successful scalpers are consistently profitable day in and day out in this extremely volatile environment. If that is your cup of tea , then I would recommend the daily reading of the attached SFO article entitled: " 25 Rules of Trading". It has been an invisible mentor to me.

Hey guys and gals.

 

Thanks everyone for the comments. I have been lucky enough to have someone approach me to help stay focused on the end result. I'm looking forward to the interaction. Of course it wouldnt have been possible without this board. Big thanks to SoulTrader.

 

OAC, thanks a ton. I've downloaded it and I'll read it over the week.

 

Thanks again everyone,

Ryan

    • havent done any crypto withdrawals or deposits, maybe support can answer that... Im more if a traditional trader, straight up regular connection tbh. 
    • Date : 19th August 2019. Events to Look Out for This Week. Trade worries remain and are expected to keep flip-flopping between risk-off and risk-back-on sentiment. Hopes for more central bank stimulus vies with fears that a number of major economies are simultaneously heading for recession, with a number of developing-world economies with high Dollar debt levels particularly exposed to the shifting financial cycle. Given these fears, further conciliatory remarks are likely from both China and the US with regard to their trade spat. Nevertheless, next week the economic calendar also focuses on the PMI releases globally.Monday – 19 August 2019   Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The Euro Area CPI for July is expected to hold at 1.1%y/y in the final July reading from 1.3%y/y in June. Energy price inflation was clearly largely to blame and the core rate fell back to just 0.9%y/y from 1.1%y/y in the previous month. The core is anticipated to remain unchanged as well. With growth slowing down and the improvement on the labour market starting to fizzle out, chances are that inflation will continue to undershoot the ECB’s target range, thus adding to arguments for a comprehensive easing package in September. Tuesday – 20 August 2019   Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA left rates on hold in its last meeting, after back-to-back rate cuts in June and July, which put the cash rate at a record low of 1.00%, while Governor Lowe said that more easing measures could be needed. Minutes are expected to shed further light regarding future easing stance. Manufacturing Sales (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Manufacturing sales are anticipated to grow 2.0% in June after a 1.6% rebound in shipment values was revealed during May and following a 0.4% decline in April. The surge in transport equipment sales is consistent with the improving economy and as such fits with the BoC’s overall view that the economy is improving after temporary weakness in Q4/Q1. Wednesday – 21 August 2019   Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada’s CPI did not challenge the outlook for steady BoC policy this year. CPI slowed to a 2.0% y/y pace in June from the lofty 2.4% y/y clip in May. Inflation remains around the 2 percent target, with some recent upward pressure from higher food and automobile prices. Core measures of inflation are also close to 2 percent. Even though CPI inflation will likely dip this year because of the dynamics of gasoline prices and some other temporary factors, the annual and monthly numbers for July are expected to remain steady. As slack in the economy is absorbed and these temporary effects wane, inflation is expected to return sustainably to 2 percent by mid-2020. FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 18:00) – The FOMC minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide an assessment as regards the views of the Fed’s policymakers about the interest-setter’s future stance and are usually a cause for FX turbulence. Thursday – 22 August 2019   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1 Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2. Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing are expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMIs are likely to fall to 51.7 from 53. New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency. Friday- 23 August 2019   Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 2 Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales are expected to have decreased in Canada, with consensus forecasts suggesting a -0.5% m/m decline should be registered in June and an unchanged ex-autos component at 0.3%. In May, Retail sales were disappointing, falling 0.1% for total sales and declining 0.3% for the ex-autos component. The decline in sales was driven by a 2.0% tumble in food and beverage stores. The report casts some doubt on the resiliency of the consumer sector to the ongoing parade of worrisome geopolitical and trade developments. Always trade with strict risk management.

    • AUDUSD Market Dragged Lower on Bears Dominance   AUDUSD Price Analysis – August 15 The bears were in full control moving the market lower in the prior session, although in the present session we see the pair found buyers around the level at 0.6748 for the 4th day in a row while the pairs bear dominance is evident falling to lowest close since the beginning of the year.   Key Levels Resistance Levels: 0.7297, 0.7207, 0.7085 Support Levels: 0.6748, 0.6676, 0.6620   AUDUSD long term Trend: Bearish In the bigger picture of the daily time frame, the decline from the level at 0.7207 (high) is seen as resuming the long term downtrend from 0.7297 (February high). Firm break of the level at 0.6876 (low) should confirm this bearish view.   On observation, further fall may be seen to the level at 0.6620 (low) next. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.7085 resistance is needed to be the first sign of medium-term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish even in case of a strong rebound.     AUDUSD short term Trend: Ranging On the flip side of the 4-hour chart, the AUDUSD is staying in consolidation from the level at 0.6676 and it’s intraday bias remains neutral first. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.6827 will extend the rebound.   But upside should be limited below the level at 0.6909 support turned resistance to bring fall resumption. On the downside, the break of the level at 0.6676 may target 100% projections from the level at 0.7085 to 0.6827 from 0.7085 at 0.6620 level reflecting on the daily chart.
    • EURJPY Approached Recent Swing Lows, Likely to Breach the Low of the Year on the Level at 117.50   EURJPY Price Analysis – August 16   The pair depreciated again in value against the Japanese Yen. The currency pair during the mid-week breached both the upper and lower horizontal lines on the moving average 5 and 13 while completing another lap on the low in today’s session towards the low level at 117.50.     Key Levels   Resistance Levels: 123.01, 121.40, 119.91   Support Levels: 117.50, 117.00, 114.84   EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish The Daily time frame displays the EURJPY at the low, showing the pair is also testing a swing area on the level at the 117.50 to the level at 118.16 below the moving average 5 areas. The price attempted to dip below the area on August 12 to the low for the year on the level at 117.50, but could not keep the momentum going. The swing area was reestablished as support on August 13 and again today   However, buyers are trying to lean against the low level at 117.50, on the retest and hoping for a quick bounce. The trend is showing a bearish outlook in the medium and long term.   EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging On its Intraday, the bias in EURJPY remains neutral for the moment. With the level of 119.91 minor resistance intact, further decline is in favor. Although a break of the level at 117.50 will resume a large downtrend to the level at 114.84 support next.   However, on the break of 119.91 resistance will indicate short term bottoming. A stronger rebound should be seen to the horizontal resistance line now at 121.40.
    • USDCHF Bounces Off Lower Prices On Correction.   USDCHF bounces off lower prices on correction the past week. This has opened the door for more gain in the new week. Resistance resides at the 0.9800 level. Above here, resistance lies at the 0.9850 level and then the 0.9900 level. Further out, resistance comes in at the 0.9950 level. On the downside, support is seen at the 0.9750 level with a turn below here opening the door for more decline towards the 0.9700 level. And then the 0.9650 level. Further down, support resides at the 0.9600 level. All in all, USDCHF remains biased to the upside on further corrective strength.
