I am considering taking on a few traders to mentor. Like 2 or 3. No cost, no guarantees, expect it to be very hard and often weird.

If you are interested send me a PM, email, or Skype with where you are and why you want to trade. I'll get back to you.

It will be completely confidential.

Caught a 4:1 after almost stopping for the day. I was short, scaled out, stop to BE, target a few ticks north of YVAL, came back and was stopped out.

Then tried for an inverted H&S, closed negative but was still up for the day from the prior scaleouts.

Two times wrong, 3 is my max. Thought about just coming back to it tomorrow. Then saw price turn it's eyes on the VWAP prior pivot. Finally caught a real target for the day. But, as happens often, it ran another 50+ ticks without me... It is not like I won't get another shot at it, probably as soon as tomorrow.

Trading profitably and trading beautifully are not necessarily synonymous.

On the mentoring topic, I have not forgotten. I received a lot more response than I expected, particularly in this thread. I really wanted to do a one-on-one thing with maybe one or two people. I am not doing it for money, just have an appreciation of the importance of true mentorship, different from a purchased education.

This has been a very busy week. I am closing my business which involves insurance, accounting, contacting people personally to not burn any bridges, making arrangements for potential warranty issues, helping friends secure other work.

Plus, I set up two new trading accounts for forex this week, getting familiar with both, learning about MetaTrader4, going to the gym a lot more, I am getting ready to go out of town on Sunday, etc.

I will respond soon and go through some individual questions to decide how to proceed. I am thinking about it, with the focus being how to best approach something like this. Be patient with me, and thanks for your confidence in me.

This was on facebook last night from a friend of mine. "Let the bodies hit the floor". Meanwhile, Short Squeeze can't even get out a full meow. More of a squeak...

Good Stuff...

Good stuff Gary, looks like you have lots to do .

Whoever you choose , it would be great to receive updates here on how the work/study
is progressing.

Perhaps one of the students can post regular updates, like a quick brief post
on their progress.

Cheers,
Greg.

Without conflict, there would be no motion.

I have decided to make this a contest, where the twist is I am making it up as I go.

Step one will be a skype call where I make two live trades with you. There will be a quiz at the end of that, but only after all candidates have had their two calls.

Entry closes tonight at midnight EST.

First Official List Of Rules




1) Anyone not an Elite member of futures.io (formerly BMT) is automatically disqualified. Not Big Mike's rules, mine. This is my contest.

2) If the AMP Futures things proves to be true, you have to leave Amp. If it is not true, I don't dare who you use.

3) At some point in the future I will make up some more rules.
