Professional Traders Giving Amazing Advice

This is a really under appreciated Video from Anton with not a lot of views but there are so many words of wisdom, great advice and quotes

“It’s no different to any other industry. People for some reason think Trading and Portfolio Management is different. I don’t know why. It really is the same as any other industry. You need the older guys in the industry to give you guidance in your career and show you what’s what. Guys who have been there, done it, bought the t-shirt, been around the block several times”

“I think it comes down to two things in trading and portfolio management. Firstly when you’re young firstly understanding how the industry operates, how the industry works. Knowing the ins and outs of the industry and secondly guidance in how to become a successful trader. One of the first things you have to learn when learning how to trade is how to… lock out and eliminate emotion in your trading.”

“The first step is always to get a broader understanding and education. The next step is always finding that sweet spot within trading, over the time frames that are trading not investing, that suits your personality.”

“Not everybody is suited for example within the trading spectrum to short term trading. Not everyone is suited to long short portfolio management over a 1-3 month timeframe, but if you get the discipline and the broader education first, you can always adapt and always be flexible if something is not working because you understand how a systematic process works.”

“Every Professional Trader knows that you have to absolutely have a personal life that’s simple and a trading life that mirrors your personal life and vice versa.”

“People who screw their personal lives up screw their trading lives up and vice versa, people who screw their trading lives up always screw their personal lives up. They have to run in parallel with each other and you have to manage them to be really focussed and really straight forward and simple.”
