Coaching or Trading Buddy?

    One of the hardest parts of trading is the isolation aspect. Disappointments and failures (as well as successes!) can leave hidden woundings that left unexpressed, can repeat themselves and as a result begin to establish bad reactive habits. Do you have anyone in your life you are completely open with that you can express fears and triumphs with? If so, how valuable do you think that is for you? If not, do you think that type of relationship would help your trading development? :confused:

    There is no such thing learning how to trade from home. That is a losing strategy. Every successful traders begin their trading career in the "HOUSE."

    After 5-10 successful years working/trading in the house, traders are able to trade at home or open a hedge fund/prop house/HFT.

    Look real good at the photo. Sitting side by side with big traders. Do they look like they want to teach.

    More than 90% of small traders lose! They just lose!

    Also, you don't ask successful traders to coach/teach. They are given, and that comes with great personality. If they like you or not.

    great personality equal reward
