Robert Jacques –Top Performer
My name is Robert Jacques, I have a full-time job, and I trade with Audacity Capital part-time. I joined the training two years ago and I went live with a trading- account in January 2017. With the ongoing mentorship program, I have become a profitable trader.
What Made You Want To Be A Trader?
In 1995 I had the chance to be a self-employed trader. A friend backed me with a six-month training course. My first job was a runner who would collect trading- cards and take them to the back office where all trades would be reconciled. I passed the trading- exams and become a trader through ING. After that, I used to trade the Italian currency, which was replaced by the euro. I later ended up in the US pit market.
The Biggest Challenge You Faced
It is when you have a run of losing trades and you are trying to stick to your strategy. Sometimes It can be tempting to flip to something else that will work. If you keep to your strategy, things will get better when market conditions change.
How Does It Feel To Be On The Trading- Floor?
It allows you to bounce ideas off people. There are also pros that help you make the right choices. They want you to be comfortable. In general, there is a lot of information and knowledge going around that can help you to be better.
About Your Strategy
If you have never traded, the charts and the technical side look complex. In my strategy, I keep the chart as simple as possible. At the start, it is stressful since you want to win. That is not humanly possible in the financial markets. I am comfortable with my strategy and at ease with myself. The more at ease, you are with yourself, the better you trade.
