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.

Mike

Thank you to @traderwerks for doing this.

Guys, the current plan is as follows:

- Finalize the list of questions
- Trying to keep majority of the 20 questions very similar/identical for each interview, as I think it is important to see how different traders answer the same question
- Will personalize a few of the questions for each interview
- Once questions are finalized I will setup a few interviews, trying to get a few done prior to my vacation end of September

There is no preference or order on the current list or the order in which the interviews will be posted, other than convenience and scheduling.

And finally, one more important post tonight --

NOW is the time for you guys to share your input and offer suggested questions. Like I said, I want to keep most questions uniform across interviews, so that means we will all benefit from having the best questions we can come up with from day 1.

So I am asking for your input to help make that happen.

Hi Mike,
I see that as a great way of advancing our potential . Great thought.

Also,a suggestion :

- ask what was the biggest factor that changed the trader into a consistently successful trader.

I'm sure the answers will be interesting and may help others.

Hi Big Mike,

I have a topic I would like to have asked;

How the traders at this level deal with periods (possibly long perids) of not being profitable? How do you mentally snap out of it?

I am personally dealing with this and the more time that goes by the more skittish I get on pulling the trigger on my setups. I am a very positive person most of the time and I can't just seem to snap out of it. So I would like to know how more seasoned traders do it.

Thanks Big Mike. I hope this question is relevant to what you were wanting.
