Looking forward to these interviews.

Some more potential questions:

>> How did you learn to do what you do?

>> What was your greatest setback as a trader, and how did you overcome it?

>> What would you consider to be your greatest limitations?

>> What are your current aspirations, or what do you see as the next step for you in your progression as a trader, and how do you intend to get there?

@Big Mike

Any update on this? I realize year end may have pushed this back again but I really looking forward to the interviews.

Also, can you share the interview questions you have selected so far? I'm meeting with a few prop traders in person next month and I would love to have this list as a pool of questions.

Cheers
