How many hours have you invested?

This week, I spoke with some of the students regarding the process I have always followed that allowed me to spot the #institutional trade signals in the markets and that lately, I have fallen off my process enough to have me miss many trading opportunities this last month. This was one of my fears when I first started this school, that I did not want to lose grip on the process and routines I followed in my trading. Running this school has been such a great experience and it has added immensely to my knowledge of the markets and I am seeing such tremendous results in many of our students and I believe what we are building here together has become a hallmark in the trading education industry and will continue to do so in the years ahead. I have shared my commitment to this school with you before and it is my top priority as I move forward. It will be a challenge for me to structure my day so that I can remain focused on my trading routines without the distractions that naturally come from running a trading education school but I am up for the task and I have already begun working on a plan to ensure my trading processes not only become a more pronounced part of my day but I will be using this situation to the benefit of all the students and members of the school.

Recently, in one of the classroom sessions we discussed the amount of time I typically invest each day into chart analysis and study of supply/demand market dynamics and afterwards I decided to calculate a rough estimate of the total hours I have invested since I first began my studies and I came up with the figure of around 20,000 hours. They say it takes about 10,000 hours to become proficient in something and I have doubled that and I can tell you that I feel like I am just starting to enter a new level of understanding. Along with this new level of understanding, I am beginning to develop a very unique process to help teach students who graduate to level 3, how to locate institutional trade signals. Locating trade signals, the exact area the institutions will use to buy or sell an asset is one of the most difficult things to do as a professional trader because it requires the utmost concentration and focus on the daily moves of the markets, not to mention the accuracy of the analysis we do on a daily basis, so with that being said, I will be involving students into this process so that there are more eyes and minds working together to produce the results and analysis that will take our work here at the school to the next level.

I just wanted to share this with you as something to look forward to when you graduate to the higher levels as you will not only be learning how to intelligently and successfully obtain information, study it and produce chart analysis that will lead to locating trade signals that are more accurate than anything else you’ll find in the markets today but you will take on the responsibility for producing these results for yourself.
