I’ve been at this business of trading for almost 30 years now, and the business has gone through some tremendous changes in that period. The biggest change is, without a doubt, the influence of the internet and the establishment of e-mini trading rooms, e-mini educational programs and a host of other developments related specifically to futures trading.
After retiring from institutional trading via an early buyout offer (nearly 8 years past), I began teaching individuals the principles of trading and running a small trading room 마곡노래방. I like things simple so I always kept my trading room small and mentored every student on a one on one basis. Assembly line e-mini education just didn’t seem feasible to my way of thinking.
Early on in my second career of training individuals who wanted to learn to trade, there were very few trading rooms, maybe fifty or so. That is a simple guess from my point of view, as I never took the time to actually count the number of rooms in existence. Oddly enough, most of those rooms are still in business and succeeding.
One nice thing about my job is that I get to chat with a sizeable number of individuals wishing to learn to trade. Back in those days, fresh off Wall Street, I was a gruff old sort and didn’t care to befriend many of my room attendees. My attitude was to intensely train students and hope they could conceptualize the principles I was trying to convey. It’s a tall order for sure.
