PAST AND PRESENT COACHING EXPERIENCES WITH MARK
Working with Mark has helped me develop my trading in the exact areas that I needed to focus on. There are tons of pretenders out there that will focus on the mechanics of trading which is the easy part. Most traders need to look at more specific issues like psychology, mindset and risk profiles. This is where Mark and the team at 42 have excelled and added huge value.
Everyone comes into trading thinking next year they will be making a million dollars. But it doesn’t take long to figure out that mastering trading can be a very difficult task especially without the guidance of someone who has been successful to help you along the way. Mark was my trading mentor and was able to help me tremendously throughout my journey and changed the course of my trading career. Without the knowledge he has shared with me it would have taken substantially longer to learn trading through trial and error. Also he was able to share his philosophy on managing your psychology for more consistent results whilst trading.
In my experience Mark has gone above and beyond what I would expect from a mentor.
Mark provides an unparalleled first hand insight into what is required to be a successful trader. His track record speaks for itself but for me it is his ability to understand my strengths and weaknesses so well that makes him such a great mentor. Within minutes of meeting him he had already identified five things that I needed to change that would/then did improve my trading.
Not only has he helped me to understand the forces that move the market, trading setups and the psychological side of trading, but he has pushed me to utilise the tools I have at my disposal.
Mark’s work ethic and time management has been a positive influence of itself and I cannot recommend his mentoring highly enough!
Mark not only has a wealth of knowledge about markets and trading, but he also understands what it takes to be a successful trader and how to overcome the hurdles inhibiting an average trader from trading at their best. Mark’s greatest strength is constantly thinking outside of the box and utilising bespoke and left field strategies to help traders achieve their potential and rather than relying on the typical ‘trading’ rule book. Every trader is different and Mark will tailor his mentorship to suit your trading style, market and psychology.
After about 3 years of trading I hit a plateau and had the fortune to be mentored by Mark. He mentored me for around 6 months and almost immediately after that, I increased my trading profits by over 300%. Mark’s mentoring was more than trading strategies or tactics. He has incredible knowledge, being the hugely successful trader he is, of trader psychology and has a brilliant way to bring new perspectives into my trading.
Mark’s mentoring saved my trading career. I was ready to give up but did some coaching with Mark and it completely turned my trading around, that was 4 years ago and I’ve been a successful full-time Trader to this day!
I am fortunate enough to have Mark Gardner as my mentor for 2 years and without a doubt he has made me what I am today. Being a profitable trader over 15 years himself, Mark has tons of experience and wisdom. He has guided me through all spectrum of trading ranging from trading set ups, trading psychology, trading rationales, software utilisation and most importantly a systematic best practice methodology.
