Hello

I been trading for 5 years and I was full time. I learned everything on my own but I realize I need a mentor someone to help me be more consistent and take me to the next level. I can not learn from someone who is not a multi millionaire from trading. My belief is -- you can only lead someone as far as you have gone yourself. I believe I need to be tweeked .... not trading 101 ground zone, unless my mentor deems it necessary . I'm looking for someone who is really passionate about help someone succeed. If your mentor does want or believes in you then you won't succeed. Anybody who is making money and has time to spare to screen share have a few trading conversations and help me get to the next level. It is much appreciated ..

This is just an evaluation of what you posted...it appears that your issue is psychological and not technical. Needing to be tweaked and more consistent sounds like discipline...if you were trading full time at some point, you obviously have skill. Not being rude or trolling just observing.

If you follow the herd...the grass is already eaten!

I'm not that good at trading yet but I think finding a multi millionaire mentor may be limiting and hard to find. In my experience, mentor's and mentee have mutually beneficial relationship. So unless you're bringing something to the table for the mentor, it may be hard to get one willing to mentor you. Having said that, when I look around the world, I often see mentor (coaches, teachers, tutors, etc...) help the people they train achieve excellence without they themselves ever achieving that level in their life. Being successful, doesn't equate being able to pass on that knowledge. There is an art in teaching others. (I've been a high school teacher for 8 years now).

From the sound of things, since you once traded full time, I too think that your issue isn't in your skill, but your psychology/emotions. You probably just need someone to make you aware of your blind spot.

A mentor might need to teach you from scratch, they can only teach you what they know works for them, you may have picked up bad habits that need to be looked at,it sounds to me like you are making basic mistakes in your trading,I could have a look at your trades then I'd know right away.

Agree here. Don't think there are lots of mentors standing here free and waiting for someone to call them for help/advice

Accept the loss as experience

Most traders know what they are doing wrong without any mentor if you take the time to look at your history.
I just saved you about 5k on advice....

No need to search for a mentor if someone strictly follow the 3 steps:
1. Pick any standard mechanical system available for free and modify a little as per your psychology
2. Backtest it with 'Forex tester' for at least for 5 to 6 years of past data
3. Next, continue to forward test the system with demo account until you duplicate exactly the same results of forex tester to your demo account

If not, then probably no mentor might help and someone will just jump from system to system and mentor to mentor.

Finally, if the mentor is wise and experienced enough in forex trading as a manual trader, then he will also give very similar advice what I mentioned above in the 3 points and apart from that he might give some additional confidence and access to his own system to the trader if he wants.
