It's going all right mate.
On reflection it's been a bit of a springboard operating at this level because much of what i'm currently exposed to, working alongside Art Krantz, jjay, Kevan & Jocelyn bears little resemblance to what i've previously been doing on my own funded accounts.
I'm much more heavily involved in, & exposed to stock & currency options & futures with slightly less emphasis at the moment on spot activity. There's a lot of automated/algorithmic template work going on which i'm finding challenging, but interesting.
When i initially met with Tess, JimmyMac & Andre, they focused more on behavioural attitudes, such as how i applied myself to, & operated under a strict disciplined model, especially the problem solving side, overcoming & readjusting to obstacles & setbacks etc.
My performance record merely indicated & evidenced i possessed the ability to identify, correctly filter, execute & manage higher probability gambles using their profiling guides, as well as the ability to quickly recognise when the approach was underperforming & make the necessary adjustments to ensure i was responding to the templates strengths v/s its weaknesses in a timely manner when experiencing dissipating volatility conditions.
The structure & framework the guys offer up here affords a huge advantage in operating the type of approach from this particular angle. It's presented in a manner that makes the process more efficient, less complex & ultimately more profitable, which is obviously intended to increase & maintain confidence. There's definitely a method to their madness.
But essentially they were interested primarily in behavioural disciplines & competencies as well as observing how using initiative directly related to applying & operating under a simple set of rules & guidelines with minimal outside interaction.
The point being if i could make headway & progress as well as problem solve playing at this less frenzied level of the game with very limited resources, experience, software & input utilizing a simple approach, then stepping up & playing under slightly different conditions utilizing differing rule sets shouldn't pose too many barriers.
Apparently it's a similar process one or two of the other guys from here & FSR went through, all of whom are still engaged in one form or another.
Who knows what's round the corner, but for now it fits with my current aims & expectations. It's certainly an eye opener but also a welcome financial step up, which helps to grease the wheels!
I'm going to spend a little time with Scott (double echo) & AltTab + Dan's crew & hopefully laine for a few weeks during the summer to observe how it all routes through the order flow process at the different brokerage tiers.
That part i'm definitely looking forward to.
