A forex trading interview

I’m finally on YouTube!

Well, at least my voice and a somewhat dated picture of me have made it there. I did an interview about forex trading yesterday with Jason Decks which he recorded and has posted. Being immersed in my PhD work, I hadn’t done an interview like this in a while, but I think it went pretty well.

The interview was mainly aimed at new and developing traders, but it does cover some broader ground, including some discussion of forex trader performance and what I’ve found in my research.

Have a listen and let me know what you think.

What are your trader performance questions?

For about as long as I’ve been involved in trading, the question of the profitability of traders has been an open one. There have been all kinds of numbers thrown out, like 95% of traders fail. About two years ago, early in my PhD research, I compiled some figures that start to answer the profitability question. I want to take things to a higher level, though, and really dig into the subject in a practical, useful fashion.

To that end I want to ask you something:

What are your questions about trader performance and trading success rates?

Depending on how much material I develop on the subject I will either put it into a book or maybe a series of reports. Either way, my objective will be to finally shine some light on how traders really do in the markets and at least provide some indication of the things that drive performance.
