I've heard from a lot of people via PM. I haven't had time to respond to everyone but I wanted to let everyone know that I appreciate the suggested questions and I will do my best to select some good ones. Each interview will have a combination of the same questions plus some unique questions for that interview.

I hope to launch the first one in the next few weeks.

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Where can we view this interview series



Big Mike View Post
I've done some interviews in the past. If anyone wants to interview me they are free to contact me.

I try to keep my opinion to myself as much as I can during webinars and such, but those that have watched the 100+ of them know that I do occasionally share my full opinion about something.

Mike

Mike

where can we view this interview series?

I am assuming we would have to be elite meembers to read the interviews?

Have not forgot this.

Unfortunately since returning from my 2-week trip to Ecuador, I've become ill with (another) pneumonia, and have also now lost my voice. Hard to do interviews in that situation.

I am still trying to get some of these done between now and end of September, between the other webinars and AMA events, before I go on my 3-week cruise vacation.

Sorry for the delay.

Confirmed interviews in the works

I will also be reaching out to futures.io (formerly BMT) members, some of you have already heard from me but I need to go back and re-organize my PM inbox to remember who exactly and where we left things.

If the community would do me a favor and create a wiki article for John Ehlers similar to the other profiles, that would be great.

Personally I'd like to see interviews where you actually get to see the trader's face and trading desk or more. Maybe some questions about the trader's lifestyle and hobbies they have to balance their day. These are some things I'm interested in as I've pretty much gotten my system down pat. There are many other facets to trading outside of the technical side that I'm growing to see are important regarding the lifestyle and what people do with their money. Regardless, I still think 20 Questions: Trader Interview Series is a great Idea and I'm excited to see how this goes. Kudos
