A wise friend of mine has always told me to buy the best tools I could manage to obtain for work. He once posed the question of, “If you were to work construction, what power drill setup would you buy?” to which my reply was, “Dewalt, of course.” My in-laws operate a successful dairy farm enterprise and they have sworn by Dewalt for years.

Also covered were different skills of trading including position management, psychology, and a very detailed breakdown of risk management.
To achieve what Mark calls “super performance”, discipline and a very honed strategy is required. Learning this from two proven traders live with over 60 years experience combined is the primary sell point of the workshop.Continue reading
