• Best Commodities Traders

  • A lot of people what to know who makes the best commodity traders and the answer to that is pretty simple. It’s the person who is willing to set aside the notion that all you have to do is find someone’s “magic” software system and buy it, turn it on and sit back and get rich. Really? I hope you are smarter than that.

    best commodities tradersI’ve been trading for over twenty years, been a CTA (Commodity Trading Advisor), owned my own brokerage company and I’ve been teaching people to trade since about 1997. So I’m not a new kid on the block when it comes to trading.

    I’ve told people before that if they can show me a computer trading system that they just turn on and it consistently makes money for 24 months in a row I’ll give them a check for $1,000,000. Why no takers? Pretty simple; they don’t exist.

    What it Takes to Be One of the Best Commodities Traders

    So what does it take to become one of the best commodities traders? Well that’s pretty simple; just Google “Trading Mentors”. I did and came up with 614,000 listings in 0.56 seconds. Wow, all I have to do is pick one that’s on the first page of Google, pay them $99.00 for their eBook and get rich. In case you are wondering I’m listed as one of the trade mentors in one of the top three listings on Google right now and no, it’s not a paid listing either.

    You probably know who Tony Robbins is. I really like his books and audio courses and I’ve been to a couple of his seminars. I haven’t done the fire walk one yet but it’s on my bucket list.  Tony says that one of the fastest ways to become successful at anything is to find someone who is successful already and simply mirror what he or she does. Tony, I really like you but that’s just too simplistic for me to believe.

    Would that mean that since I’m in my 60’s now, need to drop 50 pounds, can’t run a mile in under four minutes and so on that if I want to become a successful NFL quarter back all I have to do is find someone who is successful at that and mirror him? That’s just not realistic for me and it’s probably not for you either.

    What one needs to do is be realistic in their goals and trading is no exception. That’s a whole article in itself by the way. But let’s say that you really do have realistic goals and don’t think that trading is a get rich quick business. Even though there have been many that have done just that it’s probably not going to be you. I know it didn’t happen to me “overnight”. I spent a lot of time and money to learn what I know. Unfortunately, I did not have a mentor although I really wish I had as it would have really made a tremendous difference.

    Since you are reading this article I’m going to share something with you. Something that can change your life forever. Here it is; go find a mentor but find a mentor that you can relate to and one that can relate to you.

    I’ve got students in over 67 countries and many of them have become full time traders as well as close personal friends. But you know what; the ones that have done well are the ones that could relate to me and that I could also relate with also. We become more like trading buddies than anything else.

    During my webinars, I may put on a trade with 20 contracts but one of my students may only be able to do one contract. I might make $20,000 on that trade but my student only made $1,000. I can tell you that I get just as excited that my student made $1,000 as I did for making $20,000.

    I’m not sure when it happened but at some point over the last twenty years’ money was not my motivating factor any more. Don’t get me wrong; I’m no Bill Gates but I’ve done pretty well by most people’s standards.

    What motivates me most, besides being a good husband and father, is to pass along what I’ve learned to others. I know there are people who are realistic and really want to learn to trade for a living. Those are the people that I can relate to. It doesn’t matter if you are 20 years old or 80 years old. It doesn’t matter what your race or gender is or where you live. If we can relate to one another and you are willing to put in the time and energy to learn to trade, then I can help you.

    What I would suggest first is to find out how we relate to each other. The best way to do that is to spend some time together. I don’t mean physically sitting by side but spend time together in my webinar room, reading my course materials or even buying one of my courses. When you do, you will very quickly find out if we can relate to each other or not.

    So feel free to “drop in” anytime and see what we do in our daily Webinars. They are free to try out and we all have a good time and enjoy each other’s company. If you can’t relate to me, that’s fine too. Just find someone who is successful that you can relate to and do everything you can to get him or her mentor you.
