my friend wants to start a trading school with me, and i'm wondering if anyone has any idea how much people would pay to go to these? i'm a yield curve spreader that has averaged over 100% returns per year for the last 6.5 years, so it was never something that really interested me because i figured i'd make more trading than i would teaching classes anyways (kind of like how i laugh when people buy books to learn how to trade because i ask myself "what winning trader would actually spend the time to write a book?" and assume that it is the failures that produce the vast majority of literature). my friend though, he seems to think people would pay an awful lot for training. what kind of fees do you think you could charge to train someone? i could teach someone generally what i do in less than 10 hours if it was in person, and since i trade yield curve i'm not really worried about getting crowded out of the trades. when i started it was during historically low volatility and i managed those returns and now we are in quite volatile markets and my performance has improved- assuming more people spread yield curve it would only mean we would trend back to the markets i learned in and i wouldn't be upset if that happened.
