Traders Expo London DEC 2015

Hotel Grand Connaught Rooms

I am elated. This 4th tradeshow within 3 months helped me to grasp so many important Stuff as a trader.

The more you meet the right people, the more you can emulate success at the speed of light. After +400 hours of in-depth research in the world of trading, broker, hedge fund, an investment bank and prop. trading desk, I eventually understood what kind of role i want to play in the financial markets.

Lesson learned

You may be rip-off quickly out there if you don’t do your DUE-DILIGENCE.
You may be crushed you don’t fully understand what a trader lifestyle is.
You may be deluded if you do NOT who you are BEFORE you start a trader career

Ground preparation BEFORE trading

I attended a number of tradeshow(s)/exhibition(s), and it helped me to avoid so many pitfalls BEFORE starting my journey.

I created a personalised bootcamp training to fit in my new life as a trader

I got the support of my beloved one to become a great trader for the next decade

I cleaned up all the mess in my life to be ready for the next couple of years to trade at the top level

I am about to CELEBRATE the challenges we overcame since the last couple of years. Heading to Florida (US) for a road trip in 2016!

Tradeshow/Exhibition are a good start and an awesome way to make up your mind at the end of the day. NEVER isolate yourself while heading to your trader journey.

How to expand your ideas through tradeshow/exhibition…

When you start off trading, you DON’T know what you DON’T know.
Therefore, keeping a very open-minded spirit the first year is the terrific way to shape your beliefs as a trader.

3 goals in mind while travelling in the UK.

goal 1 : be very open-minded while building up my world as a trader
goal 2 : meet some very interesting people. Opportunities don’t just show up. We create them
goal 3 : get out of my comfort zone. Back home, set up tighter deadline in correlation with my overall experience in a 48h-business trip.

Many pros vs  few cons as long as you keep your expenses low while traveling as a trader trainee. The upside is unlimited and downside lies down to expenses and spending 72h outside your multi-trading-screens

London TraderExPO December 2015

I will be in London this week to attend this event.

My 4th trading event within 3 months is underway! I now start to really grasp what professional trading is about.I Believe day trading/ retail trading / pro trading will evolve in a very different way in the next decade.

With the rise of “quantum” computer, HFT and so on, as a trader trainee, I’ve come to believe that the PAST doesn’t equal the future. Especially in the world of trading.

Therefore, FX / EQUITIES / FUTURES / COMMODITIES are likely to be very different in a couple of years. A shift in paradigm is crucial
while learning to trade TODAY. Most of training courses are outdated, without even realizing it.

There are 2 types of tradeshow / exhibition. Paid and Free. To date,
I’ve only been to a free event.
Ticket for free event : 0-50 £ + travel expenses

Ticket for paid event: 500-2000 £ + travel expenses

Later, I will try the latter, paid-event, to see if it’s worth the money you pay.Events are great opportunities to feel the trend in the TRADING world.I encourage you to attend trading exhibition(s) while learning to trade

Investing/ Trading Exhibition in Paris

My 3rd tradeshow so far since my new life as a trader! I have learned 3 things:

  • Serendipity: you meet the right people in that kind of event if you have the right mindset.  You get what your beliefs are.
  • Trading : Hours of discussions with small/mid cap companies  CEO (sectors: biotech, medical…). Great lessons learned for upcoming trading.
  • Balance is key while walking around 10 hours in a row. I overlooked the quality of my health being. I was kind of foggy, at sea every now and then.

My trader business cards delivered at home!

as if

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AS IF method

I’m not a trader yet. I’m starting off. However, i ‘m working around the clock to pull it off.

I live as if  am a professional trader

I create a trading plan as if i am a professional trader

I see life in a very  different way as if i am a professional trader

Business cards are useful . Take very limited time to create. Still the norm to get in touch with business people.

Fake it until you make it. Your brain will resolve the cognitive dissonance and you will become what you think you are, ultimately. This method is simple, yet VERY powerful when applied properly and consistently.

Friday 23 october 2015

The professsional trip was  a good investment. I learned a lot! Let me accelerate the learning curve. Tradeshow / Exhibition help to speed up the learning curve.  You can find out  smart shortcuts…

At the beginning of your journey, the more you get insights seasoned investors/traders, the more you get a grasp at the big picture.

As Tony Robbins said, the goal is “to compress decades into days”. Great metaphor while moving forward as a trader trainee.

Paris, 18th september 2015

Duels of trading all day long in the   Future markets. Learned a lot and back home, i kept on moving forward the learning curve.

The most difficult part of the journey?  To force myself to get some sleep at night! How come? I am so passionate that it’s darn hard to get some balance in my life. I know that balance is everything

Tradeshow are really worth it at the beginning of the journey. I spoke to so many people to get a grip on the many paths to achieve the goal.
