Many traders have a trading coach or mentor. Most of those at proprietary trading firms do, but many independent traders have found mentors as well.
Some of these folks have asked for the ability to allow their mentors to see their data in Tradervue, and be able to comment on their trades. This could already be done by sharing trades publicly, but there was clearly a desire to be able to share privately with mentors, without having to make all trades public.
So we have developed a mentor system within Tradervue. The first step is to log in, click on your name in the header at the top right, and then click the “Mentor Settings” tab. The first time there, you’ll see that you can invite a mentor by entering their email. Enter your mentor’s email address and click “Invite” – you’ll then see your pending invitation listed, and an invitation email is sent to your mentor.
Once they have accepted your invitation, your mentor settings page will reflect this:
After that’s done, you won’t notice a whole lot of changes; you will see the comment fields available on all of your trades, rather than just the trades you have shared, but that’s pretty much the only change you will notice.
Your mentor, however, will see something different. When they log in, they will see a drop down where they can select to view either their own data, or the data of one of their mentees; depending on what they choose, they will see different data.
Your trading mentors have access to all of your trading and P&L data – they can see your share volumes and P&L, reports, etc. They cannot edit any of this data, but they can leave comments for you on your trades.
Give the new mentor/coaching features a try, and let us know what you think!
