The Trading Desk Made Me Cry
After 15 years with the BBC, at the age of 39, I quit my job and began an apprenticeship at a trading desk. I was basically thrown into the deep end. The first two weeks were brutal, and yes, at one point, I found myself in a restroom stall CRYING! For a moment, I wondered if I had made the biggest mistake of my life. Then, I pulled myself together and got right back to it. The first three months were just survival while I was learning about economics and price action. Eventually, I found success. So I know what it takes to get started, how to persevere when it’s difficult, and also how to push others to learn the same things.
At Adamis Principle, we mentor traders of all levels, but we are sure to vet them first. While that may sound a little crazy, it’s important that the people seeking our help are good candidates that will be able to digest what we are teaching. In order for people to be successful, we believe they must have the right trading DNA, so to speak.
