I am a compassionate person but I think I would have killed for a coach when I first started trading, I tried to find one but couldn’t.
There are good reasons for this, such as:
- There are not many full time traders.
- The ones that are around seem to be reclusive and quiet people, they are just not interested in other traders.
- Some very good traders choose to protect their own mindset by staying alone in the fear of being negatively influenced by others.
- The ones that are interested in other traders don’t have the ability or struggle to impart a wealth of knowledge.
- Some people look negatively upon those that trade for a living, so many traders keep to themselves.
I understand the above points and at times share those feelings, however I enjoy other people and have a passion for trading education.
I took a break from courses and lectures and am in the process of updating the neglected website.
However in the meantime I have continued to coach privately, below are some details I send out to people like your self.
I scan and analyze the market with software called Wealth Lab. You can look at details of the software here. http://www.wealth-lab.com/ It costs 800 dollars US to purchase and there is an ongoing yearly fee, from memory that is around 150 US $. Also you will need data. I subscribe to premium data which costs $30 A a month. So the initial outlay is not cheap and you don't want to do it without commitment as its a learning curve. If you have any questions about all that or any other software you may use we can discuss when your ready. The 52 week high I PUBLISH FOR FREE each week is a good buy signal , but the important thing is to buy stocks trending up, and stocks that have good fundamentals, sizing is ALL important, we can discuss that also at length. I encourage traders to move away from the traditional stocks (banks, BHP etc) as more money is to be made just as safely in other stocks and sectors, some find this very challenging as they are attached to the big named stocks and higher dollar stocks.
Despite the initial cost of coaching, I wished I had of learnt earlier how to system trade and back test, the money I lost was probably ten times what it would have cost me to learn to trade properly, (not to mention the lost opportunity cost) but good teachers are rare and a lot of courses are rubbish. So look around.
You may think I have given you "too much" info for free, as there are a number of systems with the rules on this website for you too consider. However successful trading is not just about technical knowledge but the psychology and how you put it all together. Consider that point at length, it is VERY important and where coaching is invaluable. So, have a read and I suggest we have a phone call to discuss if you want to proceed and in what format, I am open to any structure that will help you, with or without purchasing software. Also just ring anytime for a no obligation chat, the market can be a minefield and best to gather as much info as possible before starting, with me or anyone.
Due to overwhelming demand I am currently reviewing my teaching, lecturing and course fees. Please feel free to ring the number below to discuss my availability.
Email or phone me for a customized coaching session
I wish you all the best in your trading journey.
