You often find ex-military people to be over represented in the group of profitable traders. My hunch is because of the discipline instilled into them during their time in service.
Julian is one such trader, and was discovered by past guest, Daniel Cheung.
So what makes Julian different from other traders I’ve had on the show? Well, his trading rules are so precise he has it marked out in checklist format, which he goes through step-by-step, every time he takes a trade.
If you’re wondering what his checklist looks like, you’re in luck! In the video below you’ll see the full checklist and how Julian uses it to take trades.
