There are hundreds of trading schools out there. So, what makes us different and distinct? Here are a few of our thoughts on the subject.
Well for starters, we’re not going to tell you that anyone can be successful trading. We might even try and talk you out of it. Many come to trading full of greed and a desire for quick money. The reality is different. Trading is hard. If it was easy, everyone would do it. Is there incredible opportunity? Yes! Is there definitive risk? Yes! We don’t know of another industry where daily actions so directly affect the bottom line. In another industry if you lose a sale, you haven’t lost anything but your time. Lose on a trade and you have to trade back to break-even before you can make a profit. The emotional toll can be severe. In fact, most people lose their shirts and hard earned capital in markets.
We approach trading as a business, not a get rich scheme. Lots of trading sites offer promises of huge returns and quick wealth. Balderdash!! Like any business venture, success in capital markets often means years of hard work and long hours before the returns come. When they do it is so satisfying!! Many don’t last that long, which is like many start-up businesses.
We shorten the learning curve, but we don’t remove it. We know trading is hard and have helped hundreds of traders get the results they are looking for. We work hard to help you accelerate your development. However, if you come to us thinking that we will be a fix to all that ails you, you are sadly mistaken. We’ll help you build a framework for success and support you along the way, but the results are up to you and your continued diligence and resilience.
We help you figure out how to fish, we don’t fish for you. Jim Dalton once wrote, “Most people do not want to know the purpose of the market. They do not want to have to think rationally and objectively about the bigger picture. Most market participants, in fact most people in general, would rather be given a set of rules to blindly follow than to have to use personal insight and innovative thought. Again, the majority of people who trade (futures) do not make money” Our aim is to guide you through the stages of competency so that you are operating fully independently. We’re not selling a holy grail system (it doesn’t exist), we’re offering a disciplined approach that enables you to realize predictable success.
We teach and mentor because we believe competent traders make for better markets. This is bigger than you and us. This is about fair and just markets with broader opportunity for all. Much of the current industry is tilted to keep the masses in the dark so that the rewards are kept in the hands of a few. Imagine how different it would be if many more competent independent traders were active…..it would encourage fairer markets. Fairer markets mean more opportunity for everyone.
Clarity is key in any business endeavor
The human brain is drawn to CLARITY and away from confusion. If a trader is confused about what to do, opportunity will pass and be given to someone else. Once you clarify your approach, your trading business can begin to grow. Traders that clarify their approach win in the market. Register for our QuickLaunch Workshop today and spend three sessions with us to work on clarifying your approach. Why? Because the opportunity is there and you will likely not succeed until you view your trading as a business and not a hobby. So, if you are looking for a new challenge and you have the determination and resilience to see it through, register today.
ps. If you’ve never taken a trading class or participated in a workshop before, schedule a free consult with us to see whether or not we can add value to your current development.
