I was having lunch with a couple of friends and we were discussing how most wannabe traders are always looking for the 'method' to success in trading futures. In addition, they are looking for the guru or mentor who will steer them towards riches in their endeavour in the futures. They are amisguided, thinking that sitting alongside the 'experienced' trader will somehow show them the holy grail.

They need to realise that apart from the Method, there are another 2 M's that make up the 3 M's of trading success:

Money Management

the latter being most important making up over 50% of what it takes to succeed. No point following the guru, learn from doing in the market....
