The importance of a Trading Network

On Thursday evening, 18th May, Two Blokes Trading hosted their first summer evening drinks at the Ship, in the heart of Fitzrovia, London. A group nearly 20 attended to share their ideas and trading journeys including FX traders from Nomura,  Risk and Compliance members working for Bank of America and many more! In this podcast Mike and Rory discuss how important this is as trading can often be a very lonely game.

Expanding your network is vital as learning from other people, sharing your thoughts and getting critical feedback is one of the only ways that you can develop your own trading skills. Mike talks about how important it is to develop your career that you must ask questions and often take the risk and step outside of your comfort zone to attended events such as the evening drinks ran by us.

Rory tells us how he learnt from his mentor by asking lots of questions, attending drinks nights and reaching out to people and asking them to question his ideas for some critical feedback.

The next drinks evening will be organised soon so stay tuned in the app and listen on to the podcast to find out the blokes’ top tips!
