TradeObjectives was formed in 2009 as result of Carl Jorgensen's experiences learning to master trading, and recognizing the common struggles he has seen fellow traders experience while trying to learn trading. He saw the need for an educational resource that fills the void that most existing programs leave unaddressed. This need is the area of Effective Integration of both the Knowledge and multiple Skills needed for Successful trading. The Trader Development Workshop was developed to address this need, as a way to share with fellow traders, the skills and techniques he and others have used to successfully meet this challenge.
TradeObjectives offers live and recorded WorkShops, private Mentoring, and Software tools to help the trader become more effective at learning both the Knowledge and Skills that are key for long term success in the markets.
By providing necessary skills development and coaching, Trade Objectives helps the trader develop detailed Plans, a Systematic Process, set realistic Goals and Objectives, all tailored for the individual to help them achieve consistent successful trading.
As full time traders, we have been down that path, and can help you develop a professionally modeled Curriculum, that will help develop both the Knowledge and the Skills critical to long term success.
