Im quite interested to hear more of your story planetmoto.
Did these traders (you?) have fear/anxiety/uncertainty issues at all? If so how did they deal with that?
What markets were traded and how did they scale into and out of trades with such large size...I mean how much 'influence' did their activity have on the market, were they sneaking around trying not to be noticed or were they rampaging bullies kicking sand in everyone eyes?
How often were they trading, was it mechanical, discretionary, team, fundamental, research based?
If there was a technical component to their trading then what was the reaction to exhausted looking markets such as when wyckoff accumulation and distribution patterns are unfolding? Did they even care?
You have been exposed to this institutional environment and also seen the retail side of trading so what would you say are the top 3 mistakes you see small traders making?

Cheers.



Top 3

Failure to focus on fundamentals over reliance on technicals
Under capitalised
Obsessed with stops and targets

Tried to pm you but won’t work. Drop me a line and can expand.
