Creating a Tactical Trading Plan in 2016 – The Veterans Trader Project

Fellow traders,

A while back I heard a former fund-manager and now fintech CEO talk about the three key elements seen in good traders. You can read an article on it here. She said that in all her years there were three elements that kept showing up time-and-again in all the successful traders she worked with. They were:

– Process

– Discipline

– Self-Awareness

As an ex-military guy some of you may know that I’ve been developing a trading course to help Veterans re-train and give them a start in trading Financial markets. The longer-term plan will be to help young guys and girls who’ve been injured in recent conflicts by providing them with an opportunity to do something new and challenging.

Strangely enough those three elements mentioned above are also seen time and time again during training of military personnel. They have been deliberately included into this Stage 1 course in order to a) help veterans leverage their existing skill-sets and b) allow every-day guys and girls the chance to develop these skills and create their own Tactical Trading Plan.

I’ve run two of the courses in 2015 and the feedback has been wonderful and it’s given me great pleasure to see these traders grow and develop.

I’ll be running Stage 1 again in January and here is your chance for 2-3 people to join us.

What will you receive? Well it will be based upon covering the 4M’s of Trading: Markets, Method, Money & Myself.

There’ll be a half day (4hrs) on 22nd January of Basic Trader Training, (focusing on how to analyse markets) followed by a 90 minute follow-up group session one month later developing tactics. Then there’ll be a second half-day of training (moving from analysing markets to actually trading them safely) in March. This will also be followed up by a group session in April.

The idea will be to introduce people to analysing financial markets (whether it be for trading, investing or managing your pension) and then moving people towards longer term trading. It will be about teaching people to understand and operate safely in markets using process, discipline and self-awareness.

So Stage 1 will consist of 2 x half days (8hrs) and 2 x 90 minute sessions (3 hrs) plus email and Skype support till the end of April. There’ll be no obligation to take any other stages. This stage would in itself provide a sound foundation.

The sessions will be suited for those new to financial markets and trading. There will be required course work in between. It will be an ideal way to build a base of knowledge in a small environment (3-7 people) for a small cost. What’s the cost you say? Well I want it to be as accessible as possible to people and veterans alike. As it’s a starter project the cost will be £297 for the 4 months of education and working together.

This is going out to a few of my networks so it’s on a first come-first served basis. If you’re interested reply to this, or drop me an email at

Trade well,
