Trader coaching involves the periodic review of trades, strategies, mistakes, and your questions with the goal of improving trading performance. Cory Mitchell has more than 16 years of experience as a full-time trader.
Trader coaching, consulting, and trade review is available on a case-by-case basis.
Consultations may cover:
- Trading plan review
- Developing your own method for trading
- Finding and working on problem areas
- Trade review: making sure you’re sticking to your plan as well as addressing problems that occur while trading
- Answering specific questions you may have related to your own trading
You determine your schedule and your level of commitment. You may just want one session for a second opinion on your trading plan, ideas on overcoming a trading problem, or you may wish to set up weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly sessions for periodic reviews/feedback of your trading.
Start, re-start, or discontinue your consultation at any time.
How To Apply
I only work with a few clients at a time. This makes sure I can stay focused on what each individual needs. I typically have at least two to three longer-term clients, which leaves one, maybe two, spots available at any given time.
Shoot me an email via the Contact Us page, explaining what you are looking for. I will let you know if it is something I feel I can help with, or possibly point you to some other resources if I am unable to help.
I primarily only work with day traders and swing traders interested in stocks or forex.
The process is determined on a case by case basis. Typically we will exchange emails or set up a Zoom call for conversational meetings.
If a topic is complex, I will frequently record a video and then email you that private video which you can watch online at any time and repeatably if desired.
There is no charge for services until we decide to work together. After that, the rate is US$180/hour. You determine the schedule you wish to keep.
I don’t bill for any prep time or reading your emails. I only bill for time spent responding or on the Zoom call.
Following the first session, an invoice is sent via PayPal. This invoice must be paid prior to further sessions. This just makes sure the funds can be sent and received, since I am in Canada and clients could be from all parts of the world. After this first session and payment, invoices are sent out in the middle and at the end of the month and are due within five days.
Some people opt to send me their trades, or questions, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, or just when issues arise.
Other people choose to send in trades daily for several days in a row, looking for a lot of input quickly.
This can all be discussed prior to deciding to work together, and will depend on both our schedules.
Reviewing trades and providing email/video feedback usually takes about 10 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on how many trades there are and the level of feedback required.
A Zoom meeting is typically scheduled for 1 hour, but I leave time to go longer if needed. And we can cut it shorter if you desire.
Some questions may only take 10 minutes to respond to (very quick responses I don’t bill for). If you wish to limit feedback to a certain time limit to control your costs, such as 1 hour per week, let me know in our communications and I will respect that.
Invoices are broken down with the time spent on each interaction. At the bottom of each email, I put down how much time was spent on the response.
Cory Mitchell, CMT
Cory is a Charted Market Technician (CMT), a member of the Canadian Society of Technical Analysts (CSTA), and has been making his living off the markets since 2005.
In 2005, Cory began his trading journey with a proprietary day trading firm. They provided capital, and his only job was to trade it and make money. In exchange, the firm took a cut of his profits. No salary, no benefits, no job security…make money or hit the road.
In an industry with less than a 4% success rate, Cory was making a living from his trading within five months.
In 2011, Cory left the firm to trade on his own, continuing to day trade but also swing trading. He has extensive experience day trading stocks, ETFs, forex, and futures, as well as swing trading stocks, ETFs, and forex. Cory still actively trades and writes articles for TradeThatSwing and a select group of other prominent financial sites.
He ran a Forex channel on TheStreet from 2019 – 2020. He is an Investopedia contributor since 2008. He was the DayTrading expert on the TheBalance for three years. Cory has appeared on radio programs across the US and has spoken at multiple trading events including the 2017 and 2018 CSTA National Conferences.
He is an avid golfer (currently a 3 handicap), rock climber, and obstacle course racer, and enjoys healthy eating (most of the time), hiking, camping, and spending time with his family.
