The following is an interview with a money manager, Mr. Sam Beckers. Sam has been a customer of Optimus Futures for many years, and along the way, he also turned into a money manager (licensed commodity trading advisor). We thought that his realistic approach to trading the E-Mini S&P contract could provide some perspective on the challenges of day trading, constructing a method and execution.

Trading futures and options involve substantial risk of loss and are not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodity interests can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. The placement of contingent orders by you or broker, or trading advisor, such as a “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity interest trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to significant losses as well as gains. We urge you to conduct your due diligence.

I love this interview. As an independent trader, we are not always interesting in how much money another trader makes, but we ALWAYS interested in the process and learning behavior of an experienced trader. Great interview and great questions being asked.
