It’s no secret that trading comes with its own challenges and obstacles.
But as for any other worthwhile endeavour, perseverance and persistence is often the key to success.
On today’s podcast, we have Jim, a retired currency trader, who’s a great example of this mantra.
Jim took an interest in automated trading as a way to solve a lot of the issues he had with discretionary trading.
He started developing automated strategies but was faced with the challenge of trying to build enough diversified systems in a reasonable amount of time.
And then one day he made a key discovery, and the rest is history…
He has now achieved a fully automated system of generating strategies, along with more than 70 robustness level 3 strategies, and is now building his first portfolio.
Stay tuned to listen to Jim’s story and how his persistence paid off!
Here’s what you’ll discover:
- How Jim went from discretionary currency trader to automated algo trader in such a short amount of time,
- The key discovery that accelerated Jim’s progress in the algorithmic trading world and how you can leverage it too,
- The importance of persistence in trading and how to achieve extraordinary results fast,
- Jim’s advice for a successful trading journey,
- And much more.
“I was doing automated trading and developing systems before I became aware of BTA, but once I did become aware of the BTA, that opened up a whole new round of possibilities for me.” - Jim Gibson Click To Tweet “There’s just so much that you can do with the programmes that Thomas has developed to speed things up and to really branch out.” - Jim Gibson Click To Tweet “The first course I bought was the basic breakout course and I’ve quickly realized I needed everything.” - Jim Gibson Click To Tweet “Even if you create a level three robustness strategy out of a Masterclass Strategy, if it isn’t tradable, it isn’t really a strategy. That’s why doing the False Breakouts course really, really helped.” - Jim Gibson Click To Tweet “I’m not an engineer or a programmer and I’ve always wanted to do automation, but I would never have done it on my own without the guidance and the programme that you put together.” - Jim Gibson Click To Tweet “I think you guys have done a tremendous job in making all this stuff available to everybody and I’m just so glad that you’re out there. I honestly haven’t found anything to compare with what you guys are doing.” - Jim Gibson Click To Tweet “Be persistent and don’t give up. That’s the biggest thing because, along the way, there’s a lot of opportunities to just say maybe, it’s just not right for me or it’s just too hard for me.” - Jim Gibson Click To Tweet
