ET had a shit ton of mentors over the years, and all of them failed traders. The only thing I would expect a mentor to do would be to allow me to follow his trades (clearly for strategies that aren't liquidity constrained like trading the ES or NQ as an example) Now why do I say this? Its because its far too easy to say buy low and sell high... great... show me where low is and I can buy there too. Maybe you say don't get shaken out by small adverse movement.... great... show me in real time where your exits are. And the classic, your average win should be bigger than your average loss... great... show me how you hold onto a trade that looks like it isn't going your way anymore but you have balls of steel to stick with it and let it hit your profit target even though the past 3 trades were losers and you're therefore itching to take the small profit. In practically every field on this planet, education and mentorship starts with first showing what will be learned, and then the teacher breaking it down into smaller parts, practicing those, and then putting it together. But for some reason with trading, following a mentor as a first step for one week and putting real money into your account is considered taboo. The only reason for this is because it would expose the bullshit. When you get taught to ride a bike, don't you expect the person teaching you to get on it himself and show you how its done? When you go to medical school to learn open heart surgery, do you not expect to look over the shoulder of the head surgeon and see the procedure hundreds of times from beginning to end? Heaven forbid the lessons consisted of psychology pick-me-ups followed up with catches phrases like "don't let the patient bleed to death" and "don't forget to re-attach the blood vessels". So yes, I expect a mentor to first let me follow him day after day, see what it feels like to put money into my account, and slowly introduce ideas of why trades are placed where they are and how he manages those trades. Now I'm of course not expecting any mentor to do this, but almost every teaching starts from observation of the teacher performing that task.
