On this episode of the BTA podcast, we’re joined by a true trading success story.

Henrik, who has spent most of his working career as a business consultant, joined the Emini Breakout Strategy course and initially did nothing with it.

But then one day he took a key step which resulted in what can only be called an “overnight success”.

What did he do?

How did he do it?

And what were the results?

Here’s what you’ll discover in our chat:

  • The key steps Henrik took to achieve results FAST, and the incredible results he was able to achieve overnight while he was sleeping,

  • Why lots of traders are focusing on the wrong aspects of trading and where they should focus instead,

  • The simple one-word approach traders can use to reduce drawdowns and achieve more consistent returns,

  • How you too can leverage the work of others and experience the same “overnight success” Henrik did.
