In my quest for finding capable, respected trading industry figures to work with, I started looking for traders coaches to recommend from my new coaching site for traders, TradeMastery.com, that's launching later this year.
I've met Bennett McDowell at the MoneyShow Traders' Expos, like the 2009 New York event, and he's been recommended to me as a reputable trading instructor whose company, TradersCoach.com, has been helping traders for over a decade.
I contacted Bennett to inquire about doing an interview with me. And thankfully he agreed, so we scheduled it and conducted it in summer 2010.
Here's the questions I asked Bennett, and his superb answers. You can follow along with the questions as you listen to the interview if you wish, in this high-energy trading interview for active traders.
In the actual audio interview, you'll hear answers to these thought-provoking questions (and more):
Question 1: How did you come to develop the Applied Reality
Trading® or ART® home-study course and trading software?
Question 2: Who would be interested in using the ART® system?
Question 3: Why do you consider price and volume the “Truths” of
the financial markets?
Question 4: You are known for your expertise in risk control
and money management, can you tell us why this
is so important when trading the financial markets?
Question 5: How important is a trader’s mind set and psychology,
in becoming a consistently profitable trader?
Question 6: What are some of the unique features of the ART®
Question 7: How is the ART® home-study course different from
other courses on the market?
Question 8: It seems that there are other trading educators in
the industry that make “guarantees” promising that their
clients will all be successful, why don’t you make that
Question 9: How do your clients find you in such a crowded
Question 10: Once they do find you, what do your clients
most appreciate about your products and services?
Question 11: What is one of the most important things that
has personally helped you improve your trading?
Question 12: Why have you been drawn to trading as a profession?
Traders, here's a video of a webinar Bennett did for our traders recently:
