Topstep performance coach and risk manager Dan Hodgman sat down with newly Funded Trader® Nick M., who has had a life-changing experience since going through the Trading Combine.
Listen To Nick Tell His Story
How He Does It
After bouncing around between markets for a few months, Nick has found his groove trading Gold and Silver. The intense volatility that you find in the equity futures markets isn’t always for everyone, and the metals have been Nick’s saving grace, from a day-traders perspective.
Focusing on shorter timeframe setups and finding good support and resistance levels have proven to be Nick’s “Golden Goose.” Putting in the time to do proper research and heeding the advice of Topstep’s performance coach’s are also a big part of his daily trading plan.
It’s always difficult taking what other people say and trying to apply it to your own strategy, but when you find what works and apply the proper risk management techniques, good things can eventually happen.
What’s The Biggest Dream Trading Can Provide?
Like most of us, Nick is looking to provide a better life for himself and the people he cares about. Who can argue with that?
“Trade Like An Athlete”
“There’s a lot that goes into trading behind the scenes.” Training yourself to stay current on what happens in the market and practicing discipline when it comes to trade execution is the best advice Nick can give. Well, that’s not just good advice, it’s the best advice that any veteran trader can give to an up-and-comer.
Don’t sweat the losers; not every trade is going to be a winner. At Topstep, we want to see all of our traders get better and succeed. Funded Traders like Nick are what keeps us coming back to work day after day. Take the time to really listen to what he has to say in this interview, we’re doing our best to change lives!
