[Podcast] Conor Meegan: Providing a Path for Traders

June 20, 2018

One of the hardest things I’ve had to deal with over my 20 year trading career is accountability and access to capital.

Sometimes I’ve had one without the other, but rarely have I enjoyed both at the some time.

My guest on this episode of the TRADING WITH @CHICAGOSEAN podcast, Conor Meegan, is a partner at TopstepTrader in Chicago. His firm provides a training ground for aspiring traders to prove out their strategies, and then when certain performance metrics are met, the firm will fund these traders with firm capital. This is a wonderful, even playing field, for anyone with an idea and some commitment to join the trading big leagues.

But it doesn’t end there.

Ongoing, these traders are given mentorship, guidance, and the occasional stern talking-to that’s often needed when you’re too deep in the weeds to notice when you’re deviating from your trading plan and your results are suffering. A second set of eyes can make all the difference in the world to your long term trajectory.

We cover a wide range of topics that individual traders will all relate to in this great chat. Please enjoy…
