Hi Everybody, First, I want to say that I was reading the threads tonight and was thinking how lucky we are to have a forum like this to share ideas, and to be part of this special group of traders. We share a lot of the same challenges and goals, and reading the threads here makes me feel there's a special bond and connection between us that we traders have that other people could never understand. I guess that's why everybody here seems genuinely interested in helping each other out and seeing each other do well. Which brings me to the reason I'm posting this thread.... I manage a fund of funds that invests money with other fund managers and traders. We've reached a point where we're looking to diversify more by finding a few individual traders to trade our accounts in exchange for a split of the profits. In other words, my partner and I plan set up and fund the accounts, you trade the accounts, we split the profits, and my partner and I take 100% of the risk. I'm a little reluctant to even post here because my partner thinks I'll be inundated with people that know zilch about trading. Having read many, many threads, I think he's mistaken. This is the ONLY place we're publicizing this for now because of the quality of the membership here is exceptional. Where else do traders have serious trading discussions about spelling and chess?? Also, we'll be providing a training program designed in large part with my personal trading coach, Patty DeMartin. Patty only takes private clients, and has been called "the world's greatest trading coach." I can see why. She helped me go from breaking even to making over $1 million a year in ways that you can only "get" if you go through her training. It would be like trying to understand riding a bike by reading a book. (btw... Patty's very modest and hates when I call her "the world's greatest trading coach." She'll disagree and tell me she's really not the world's greatest trading coach, which is fine by me because it keeps her fees lower... lol...) Anyway... I should also note that this training is not for sale, and will be very limited because we will be required to personally interact with the people we are coaching. I'm posting here to see if anybody would even be interested in something like this, and to get some feedback on how to customize the training for the specific traders we select. So if you're not selected to be part of the group we coach please do not offer to pay for the training! If this seems like something you might be interested in being part of PM me for more details. I feel pretty confident this might be just the break some people need to take their trading careers to the next level. Thanks, Doug Allen PS... I understand this isn't for everybody. This will require a commitment of time, if not money. My gut feeling is there are people here who could produce extraordinary results with the right coaching and if funded adequately. Just the fact that you're reading this probably means you have potential to be a successful professional trader.
