Interview: Managing Money & Risk: Robert Deel by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
As the founder and CEO of Tradingschool.com, Robert Deel, who is also a trading strategist, author, and widely recognized trading expert, has trained individuals and professional traders from around the world on the subjects of trading psychology, technical analysis, and tactical trading. One of Deelís training techniques involves his DDRL (direction, discipline, risk, and leverage) equation, which helps traders examine their personal trading abilities and methodologies. The equation pinpoints their individual problem areas in selection, timing, risk, or money management, and it can help them ascertain how much leverage they should use.
Deel, who practiced dentistry early in his professional life, is also a former portfolio manager who once managed millions and acted as the trading strategist and advisor for a firm in California. He appears regularly on television and radio, and is the author of Trading The Plan: Build Wealth, Manage Money, And Control Risk, as well as The Strategic Electronic Day Trader.
