How to Be a Trader – Teacher to Expert Floor Trader and Beyond (Michele “Mish” Schneider)

During our interview with MarketGauge's Michele "Mish" Schneider, Michele tells us her intriguing story of how she went from a teacher to being a floor trader for years.  She had graduated with a Masters degree in Special Education, but through a chance encounter with a neighbor, got to visit the trading floor and was instantly hooked.  Michele went through the ranks working her way up from a phone clerk and floor analyst for Conti-Commodities to being a floor trader trading coffee, sugar and cocoa on the NYMEX and COMEX in NYC.  She stood next do trading legends such as Mark Fisher and Paul Tudor Jones in the pits, learning and trading with the best of the best.

Part 2 continues this story with Michele sharing her experiences and the important lessons and skills she learned. (coming soon)

In another video we did, Michele talks about the importance of having a education in trading/investing and how to build a solid trading plan for yourself.
