We've all heard the adages that pro athletes and other top performers in their fields have coaches. An outside 3rd party that only has your interest at heart. So my question is - has anyone dealt with a trading coach and how was/is the experience? I know the mod's don't care for websites to be posted for co's, but I would like as open and honest feedback as possible. I'm sure some might say why bother and others may see the possible value here. It's the old Tiger Woods question, right? Why does the top golfer in the world need a coach? My point being that at what stage(s) of a trading career should a coach be present, if at all?
