What is a Senior Trader?

A Senior Trader is an MDC staff trader who has gone through all the stages of the learning process and can now operate on a professional level. Our Senior Traders are also able to contribute new knowledge, adapt it to their trading and help explain it to other traders in the academy and on the trade desk. Typically a trader is considered a “Pro” or “Master Trader” after making a significant contribution to our trade curriculum or techniques, they are then promoted to the trade desk, and after they prove themselves, they become a Senior Trader.
For us, ‘Senior Trader’ is the highest level attainable for a trader. These traders are not only profitable themselves, but they have the ability to help teach others to achieve their own personal goals and work their way up the trade ladder.

It’s important that your family be involved in what you’re doing. Maybe they don’t support you. Because they don’t have a clear understanding of what trading really is, this is normal as they want what’s best for you. The videos we post on our YouTube channel can serve as good starting point for them to learn about trading as a profession. You may want to schedule an appointment with one of our traders and we can help adress some of their concerns and questions.
