BACKGROUND: I graduated at the top of my class from an ivy league college. I spent the next 10 years working for 2 major wall street firms as a fixed income derivatives salesman. Two years ago (at 31) I moved to Boca Raton and began trading for Generic. I have spent the better part of this time as a trader treading water, looking for new/better methodologies and feeling like I have had little to no edge. GOAL: I would love to find a mentor who can help me reach my goal to become a consistently profitable trader. CONSIDERATIONS: I am in this for the long haul. I have experience with simple directional strategies as well as complex derivative spreading strategies. I would favor trading futures over equities, but I am open to any instruments/methodologies that move me towards my goal. If this message reaches any consistently profitable traders that are interested in helping someone else reach a similar level, I would be very grateful to hear from you. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
