At the time of writing this article, I am just coming to the end of teaching the Professional Trader Class in London. As usual this has been another week of rewarding experiences, with the students learning the true ways in which the markets work and discovering how to carry out objective analysis, create a proper trade plan and manage their risk at all times.

I would like to share a few of my favorites with you now.
