Beware of the self-appointed gurus
My name is DeWayne Reeves, and I'm the founder of CFRN.
When I decided to become a trader, I knew I needed help. Long before the search for the Holy Grail began (more on that in a moment), I began looking for a mentor.
What I found was beyond surreal.
I sat in virtual classrooms for hundreds of hours.
I watched fellow traders endure what bordered on ritualistic abuse whenever the wisdom of the guru was called into question. I studied with sincere men and women, many of whom ended up losing not only their money, but their businesses, and some even their homes.
Why? Because they were told to "Just Believe".
The mantra was, "Hang on, hold on, you gotta' have faith". And you know what?
At the end of the day it would have all been worth it, if what we were taught had been something more than a vague theory.
Beware of the overly Charismatic Trainer folks. Beware of the teacher who refuses to answer the tough questions.
You may or may not be as "smart" as they are, but I can tell you one thing for sure, you deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
The mythical Holy Grail Indicator
During the bad guru experience, I also began "the hunt".
I became the Indiana Jones of Emini Futures Trading.
Deep down inside I knew it existed. That Holy Grail Indicator was going to be mine no matter what the cost. I googled till my fingers bled. I bought so many systems and indicators and goofy things that clucked like chickens, I no longer needed to actually pull out my credit card. Those 16 digits were permanently tattooed on my frontal lobe.
I justified it all as R&D. When I finally stumbled out of the laboratory some grueling months later I was beaten, broken, and clinically depressed.
Did I mention that my motivation behind all this was to simply generate income to care for Orphans who had lost their parents to AIDS? (more on that later) I wasn't chasing the Tuscan Villa or the Red Ferrari... I just wanted to make a difference in the lives of children who had no one else to turn to...
Through preservation and the grace of God, I did finally stumble onto some Godly men who actually traded for a living and were willing to share some very simple truths with me about the market.
The Turning Point
This was the turning point. I learned that emini trading had nothing at all to do with magical indicators, or secret time frames. It had everything to do with learning how to trade:
1. I learned that it was about patience, discipline, and an understanding of how price flows and what shows up to stop the flow.
2. I learned to the listen to the market. Not the news, not the guru, but the market itself. It has a pulse, a heartbeat, and it's bigger than all of us.
3. I learned that you want the market to be your business partner, not your enemy.
4. I learned that if your plan is to beat the market, you should rethink the plan or run as fast as you can in the other direction before she steals your money as well as your soul.
