VTP Stage 4 – On Managing Risk, Self and OPM – 18th & 19th November London

Hello traders,

Newbie traders may see the cartoon above and be wondering what on earth that has to do with trading? Experienced traders nod their head sagely and know instinctively how wise the cartoon is.

The longer you trade the more you realise that it is not the market which is your enemy, it is you. The market is just a mirror the reflects your own strengths, weakness, biases and darker elements of your character!

New traders like to think that they trade in a silo, that all they need is a fool-proof trading strategy that will make money for themselves. However with time and experience you realise that it becomes about understanding yourself better and subsequently managing yourself better than before.

That’s why every year I run a two-day workshop based on helping traders raise their self-awareness about managing themselves as traders. The idea is to start to show them their blind spots so they can start to mitigate the risks to themselves.

It’s also about helping you spot the signs of a possible performance slump, and more importantly what you can do to recover when you’re in one (and trust me, everyone has performance slumps as a trader – if they tell you that they don’t then they’re lying!)

On Managing Self and becoming a Money Manager is aimed at helping you evolve in your trading towards professional status, whilst building your own trading business.

It will consist of: – 2 x full days on 18th & 19th November in Central London -plus  1 x follow-up online session For a total of 18 hours working together.

(Please be aware that location may change to online classroom should there be a change in circumstances and environment.)

It’ll will be split into 3 sections namely: managing risk, managing self and the final part on managing money – namely other people’s. You may or may not have dreams of becoming a money-manager, however acting as if you are a fund manager is never a bad thing in your own trading business. It holds you to a higher standard in your own behaviour.

This whole stage will be focused on what you need to do to build your own trading business that will put you in the right space to be able to seek funding (if that is your long-term aim).

Here is a fine testimonial from a Fund Manager:

“This course will make a huge difference to your progress as a trader….though you may not realise its benefit for 18 months.”

So as always there’s a cost implication: the cost for this stage will be £597. However for viewers of this blog or members of the London or Dublin Traders Network I will be offering a reduced price of £497 for the 2 days.

There are 4 slots left and as always it’s on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’re interested or want to know more then drop me a line. Trade well,

Join us for ‘The Power of Journaling’ with Coach Steve Ward and Fund Manager Simon Cotterill – Tuesday 19th October 1900

Hello traders,

We have a treat for you next Tuesday 19th October at 7pm.

The London Traders Network will be hosting a webcast with Trader Coach Steve Ward, and Fund Manager (and member of the LTN) Simon Cotterill.

The subject will be on the power of journaling for traders. Those who know me will know that I am always impressing on new traders the importance of journaling as a means to improve your trading.

Steve and Simon have created a powerful new tool to help support Traders in their journey: The Traders Mind Journal

We’ll be having a discussion about the power of journaling for traders, and how their new tool can help you improve your own trading. Steve and Simon will take a few questions at the end should there be any.

***Those of you who know me know that I am inundated with educators, signal providers etc wanting to upsell their wares to the Traders Community – and I’ve always said no unless it was something I used and believed in myself. I think this is the second time in about 10 years that I have offered an introduction to the London Traders Network – so high praise indeed!***

You can check out the journal here: The Traders Mind Journal

Furthermore – Steve and Simon have very kindly offered a 15% discount to members of the London Traders Network. Use the link above and use the discount code ‘Paul15’ for your discount.

So join us at 7pm on Tuesday 19th October to listen to Steve and Simon talk about trading, the power of journaling and how it can help you improve your trading.
