We had an outstanding time with friend of FNL and host of the Futures Radio Show, Anthony Crudele, on February 3rd. Deli discussed why traders can't seem to get over the hump from losing or breakeven trading to successful trading. Click the button below to listen to the recording from February 3rd.
Also, you can check out Deli's "Develop Your Edge" series on YouTube.
Any serious Futures trader should have this series in your weekly playlist!
