Hello Everyone,
This is shoade.
I am new to trading Futures.
I have taking classes but most of my trades so far has been non profitable.
I believe I am in need of a mentor, someone who will be kind to show me the ropes.I know I can do it with help from a good teacher or Mentor. Just looking for someone to dialog with before I blow out my account again. My platform is Tradestation.
Thank you for your time.
Shoade

Most mentors unfortunately will just take your money. They will not help you.

My advice: determine which type of trading you want to do: for example, do you want to be a discretionary chart trader, do you want to be a news trader, do you want to have automated strategies, etc.

Then, knowing the type of trading you desire, look through this forum for people. It will take a while, but eventually you'll be able to separate the good from the bad.

Finally, contact the person you are watching. See where it goes.


Most people looking for a mentor do the opposite - they fall for a sales pitch, they don't even know whether their prospective mentor is legit or not (for example, most trading room "gurus" are actually paper trading con artists), and they follow whatever method their mentor is using, without regards to whether of not it fits their personal situation.

Tread slowly looking for a mentor. The water is full of sharks.

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

What type, what kind of trading are you doing? What type do you want to do?

As an analogy you just said this: I want to work with wood.

Ok does that mean you want to work in a forest? Plant trees? Work in a saw mill? Install wood floors? Finish wood cabinets? Build houses rough construction? Inside houses finishing work like trim work, crown molding and chair rail.

Finding a mentor means first having a crystal clear knowledge of yourself and how you want to trade. How you can trade or what you can/will grow into as a trader. It's a massive maturation process.

Read Jack Schwager's book ...the Market Wizard series and see all the different types of successful trader.

His page on Amazon... http://www.amazon.com/Jack-D.-Schwager/e/B000AR7ZM4/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1464882431&sr=8-1

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

@shoade, one possibility is www.tastytrade.com

There's many hours of free trading content each day. For futures, see those with Pete Mulmat. He has three segments on per day, and in one he's effectively mentoring a young person who is positive for the year.

At least with this there's no cost to learn, you can watch people live here, get a sense of who they are, their style, and communicate with them if you want.

Tastytrade has changed so much from when I first joined about 4 years ago I often forget how good it has become. See, that was back when you had to "join"…lol. Back in the beginning it was $45/year…now it's free. At some point in between $45/yr and free it was something like $90/month.

They have added so many segments so many shows. Tom's TedTalk is worth a listen too.

Hi Shoade,

This is my first post in this forum. Found it by chance.

Hopefully it is not like some of the others out there where pretend traders swear at each other and are a complete waste of time.

I have traded over 35 years and can tell you one way to a trading career. This is one that I took.

It is not too popular because everyone wants a secret guru indicator that makes them money overnight.

I took an apprentice job at the NYSE.

Pretty soon you find the most successful people. You follow what they do.

Read a lot.

The next step is to learn to control risk and money management. This is boring stuff.

I got an accounting degree. More boring.

Then practice.

Once you are good at following a plan, win or lose, then try to trade 1 contract--one trade per day.

Find someone you can actually visit, if they trade away from an exchange. Many floors in Chicago are closing.

More and more traders are trading from home offices.

You can do this and make more money than a brain surgeon.

You will need time.

TB

Does anyone know a good way to learn how to scalp? Or recommend any good program to learn?
