No.. Not even close
we.. by this reckoning and train of thought you could argue that a garbage collector or a prostitute is a trading analyst
They both help in some way
they both receive some sort of compensation
this is the wrong approach to take
an Analyst is a specialist in analyzing data and interpreting it
a Mentor is like a Guide, you can have different styles of mentoring, they can be discipline orientated, physically orientated (like a fitness instructor) they can be emotionally orientated
let's take Footy for example
Australian Footy players (and i know this because one of them is a friend of mine), they wear this Vest which has sensors in it to monitor their performance and breathing and physical fitness and so on
There is a Technical/ Medical Analyst time person that interprets the data from each player wearing the vest during the game and how they perform
the players also have a coach
You could say .. THE COACH IS THE MENTOR
you could also say - THE TECHNICAL/MEDICAL ANALYST interprets the performance of the players (and in a way is a mentor), but instead of directly mentoring, he passed the information to the Coach and says what needs to happen, as in , What diet change, what training routine change etc.. needs to happen
he might consult with a physical fitness instructor to establish the best course of action, but once they know it
he passes it to the coach
Coach relays it to the player
Player makes the change
the analyst then looks at the data during the next game and CONFIRMS IF THE CHANGE MADE A DIFFERENCE
so you see now the difference between A COACH/MENTOR and AN ANALYST .......... Big Difference mate
as for this
Honestly, i'm not really one to do this.
i know if i do , i'll receive crap from the other members about scamming and soliciting , as you can imagine.
and then if i do, every other newbie is going to latch on and ask me and after like 10 people, it becomes a thing where it looks like i'm full of crap and trying to palm my friends off to you guys
Mate, Look, i'll tell you what
I'll ask my mate.. ok
if he say's ok, (and understand that IT'S HIS CHOICE IF HE WANTS TO ACCEPT )
Truth is , he is very good at what he does, but right now he has family commitments and his wife recently had a child
I'LL ASK HIM
Personally i think he won't let me give his mobile number on this site.
he is the kind of guy that likes to deal with Serious people and not newbies (just a heads up)
hence why he doesn't spend time on this site and has never had a babypips account
like i said i'll ask him
and i'll have a think about Whether i'll give you the details (don't take it personally if i don't)
i need to have a think about the way the other members and the mods will react to it......ok
let me get back to you.. is that cool
also a heads up
IF HE AGREES......
No whinging , No Whining or any of that ok
Cards on the Table... ok
it will be SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS for an analysis, Depending on the depth of analysis (and you should probably start from the most basic (in my opinion)
you will probably start from around $300 ish dollars maybe $200 i'm not sure what his prices are.
and i think the deepest level of analysis is around $3,000 - $4,000 it might even be more.. i don't know to be sure.
all i'm saying is , don't go into this thinking you are going to pay $50 and "She'll be right" ok
like i said, he doesn't like wasting time with people who are not serious
if he tells you the price and you have a stink about it, he'll come back to me and ask why did i refer you
so.. You see why i'm hesitant... right ?
so.. can we agree on that
NO MATTER WHAT HE QUOTES YOU. You don't whinge about it, You don't be rude..... You just say... I AGREE or I DON'T AGREE simple as that ok
none of this "Aww what, what a rip off" BS ok
because for the work he puts in.. it's not a rip off
and for the value that it brings to your trading and how you can fix things, it's not a rip off, you can take that from me.
i can see how some people would not be able to , or want to afford it
but there is no need for insults and whinging and whining about the price
it all comes down to
GET A QUOTE
ACCEPT IT OR DECLINE IT
so can we agree on that. ?
