A Case Study in Trader Profiles... Which Trader Are You?
Meet Bill and Steve - 2 Fictional Traders
(with very real trading characteristics)
Bill vs. Steve is a concept developed to illustrate the two categories (or models) that we as traders operate within.

Although Bill and Steve are not actual "real" people, their traits and habits are ABSOLUTELY real and they are based on real traders.

....and you're currently one of 'em.

But understand this...one of them makes NO money trading (nothing meaningful anyway). The other one CRUSHES it!
Meet Bill:
Meet Steve:
Hi, I"m Bill (35). Real Estate Agent from Ohio
...and I'm a "Part-Time" Trader
I say "part-time" trader, but I have been "dabbling" in day trading since 2010. That's what?...almost 7 years now I guess.
Which seems like FOREVER...ha :)
I have purchased several trading systems and programs, difficult to explain really, I am what you would call a "Jack of all Trades". lol
- Bill
Hi, I"m Steve (42). I'm an ex-mid level manager for a fortune 500 company and now "full-time" day-trader.
I live in Michigan with my wife and 2 kids.
Like Bill, I have been day trading since 2010.
The beginning was really tough but as soon as I realized a few "truths" about trading - it got a whole lot easier.
I have a very specific trading plan each day and I have an understanding of proper money management techniques.
Now, all I do is day-trade for a few hours a day and spend lots of time coaching my son's teams and finishing up all the "honey do's" on my wife's project list! haha!
-Steve
Before I continue to explain the DIFFERENCES between Bill and Steve let me give you a...
Brief Backstory
Ok my name is Jason Love and I am the founder and lead trader of the Oil Trading Group.

Back in late 2003, I was the VP of a travel related call center. Basically, I ran an inbound travel agency.

After 9/11, like a lot of travel businesses, we had a hard time convincing people that it was safe to travel.

Eventually, we lost that battle and the business closed.

Like millions of other people, I had become "replaceable".

But, I could see the writing on the wall....I knew it was coming.

It was at this point that I made the decision, right then and there...A decision that completely changed the direction of my life.

I didn't take the safe road, you know...the look for another job - then jump ship when one was found, road.

....for me, I wanted put myself in a position that no one else was ever in control of my income again!

I was going to become a professional day trader!

Honestly, this was scary as hell, I had a wife and a son who depended on me and now I was a self- employed day trader....or was I just "out of work"? :)

No matter though, this is where the rubber would meet the road. I was going to be RICH and free from the restrictions of "the man"!

...and this is when - without knowing it - I started "operating" as a Bill.


The Bill Role

During my "honeymoon phase" I joined a BUNCH of trading guru email lists.

So, I was getting hit with trading room and trading indicator offers every day.

Three things were 100% certain back then.

1. I was making NO money trading.

2. I will die one day.

3. There would be a new "shiny - object" in my inbox each morning.

...and with a little bit of my "back-up" money that I had in the bank, I went on a buying spree!

It started slowly, because I was basically broke.

Maybe a new shiny-object each month is what I needed. It was like heroin. I was helpless. I NEEDED the next shiny-object "fix". The big promises of easy, quick "push-button" riches.

Each product I purchased pushed me in a different direction.

  •  I was doing red light / green light systems (arrows appear on chart = TRADE)
  •  I was trading moving average cross-overs
  •  I purchased trading psychology books
  •  I attended "guru" webinars
  •  I traded futures / forex / options...you name it, I traded it 'cause a guru said to trade it.
  •  I could go on forever about the stuff I purchased...that ended up not working.
The bottom line, I wasn't a trader, I was an "opportunity seeker". No two ways about it, I was looking for the next "get rich" quick opportunity a.k.a. "shiny-object".

My flawed process looked something like this.
...meaning that any little "opportunity" that presented itself to me - I would drop whatever I was doing at the time - and shoot off on a tangent as I explored the viability of this new opportunity.
That workflow pretty much turned into a CANCER as I played the game with little results to show for my money and efforts.


Opportunities (or better put, the perception of opportunity that will produce a quick and easy result)in the day trading "vendor" space is rife... 

...and it is a cancer.

But, you probably know that already.

I'm not breaking news here.

Results?

Miserable.

Even worse...

Did I know how to trade consistently?

Not a freakin' clue.

That was one full year "lost". So, I chalked that up to a lack of experience.

The next year I was more savvy. I felt I had learned from my early "rookie" mistakes. I had my stripes now.

I would not "go after" every opportunity that would inevitably come my way.

I'd be more selective.

WRONG!

I purchased one of these super expensive "boot camp" products. You know the ones I mean.

3-day intensive "hands on", let me show you all the "tricks of the trade" boot camps. The ones that when you got there all they did was try to sell you more stuff.

That year ended and I was now F###ED!

Results?

A little better...but nothing like it should be for all the money I had spent on trading gurus.

All I had really done is become the "jack of everything" and I still had the focus of a 3 year old child.

...and then I had the epiphany!

I realized that the "role" I was operating under was a "Bill" (although I not yet labeled this trait as "Bill")

Truth is, I had likely maxed out what "Bill" could consistently achieve and realized I had to make a change.

I moved my model to the "Steve" role.


The Steve Role

Steve operates completely differently than Bill.

Steve "manages" his attraction to "shiny-objects". He's not addicted. He can control what he purchases and what he chooses to ignore.

His "attention" is more selective and focused. He values his time and money.

Steve's process looks something like this:
Steve is building a trading career. One that serves his specific needs and style of trading.

The second I changed my mindset (and my perception of what I was doing) - positive change happened, almost instantly!

I became a narrow minded trader...I focused on being consistent and adhering to my plan.

What I did from that day onward - the epiphany moment - was to operate in a far more focused, disciplined and strategic way.
Conclusion
A Bill sees opportunities as events — where results are, at best, a flash in the pan.

A Bill is a "jack of all trades and master of none". That is primarily how a Bill rolls.

Each "shiny-object" is the big answer - the reset button - a new road to quick trading riches. But, of course that's just an illusion setup by the trading gurus.

The gurus know how Bill operates. So, they write copy specifically for the Bills of the world.

...copy that acts as Bill's "venus fly trap".

The outcome is always inevitable and predictable.

Steve(s) are different different...

Steve knows that being a consistent trader is a PROCESS, not an event.

It is something that needs to be worked on...continuously.

Steve is focused on taking the necessary steps each day to become a consistent trader.

The road ahead is not easy...in fact it is hard. It requires pigheaded discipline and determination to fine tune your craft.

I've probably said enough already. I'm sure you get the point.

But I will say this to end off...

There are different "layers" to both Bill and Steve.

Some "Bills" are (very) content operating in their Bill role. They seek out the "heroin" rush of a new magic pill.

When it earns $500 (one off) they see that as a "big win". They're happy and think they have found the holy grail.

But if it bombs - and it almost always does - they cry foul...


ask for a refund...

...and complain on forums where thousands of other Bills hang out. They feel comfortable in a pack of Bills.

Some Bills consciously know they’re a Bill … but they want to change. But mostly, they just don’t (yet) know how. They wanna be a Steve — if they only knew how.

There’s still hope for those Bills.

I made the decisions I made because at the time I thought that was the right decision. I didn’t know I was a Bill. I didn’t know how to think like a Steve.

Once I decided to change my core thinking. I become a Steve. That was my decision. For me, it has paid off...

What about you? Do you have the guts and make the necessary changes to become a consistent trader?

Perhaps it's time for you to make the right decision.
