If you can play blackjack successfully, you can get an edge over the casino and make money.
However, if you are playing blackjack successfully, you can earn far more money in a higher stakes game, with the skills you already have.
Blair Hull was a successful blackjack player, and he was famous throughout gambling circles, and making big profits.
He changed “games” and used his skills to turn $25,000 into $500,000 in just 3 years! He then started again with $1 million in his company in 1985, and by 1991 had $90 million!
So what Game was he Playing?
He started to trade financial markets using his skills. If you’ve never considered financial trading, now’s the time to do so.
Many of the world’s top traders came to financial trading after playing blackjack successfully.
The key to playing successful blackjack is to have the odds on your side, and bet properly. The same approach applies to trading:
In gambling, most players don’t succeed because they don’t have a system – they play a game that is statistically based upon the odds, and the same goes for trading.
If you have system you can apply to keep the odds in your favor, you will win over the longer term.
Trading can be learned by anyone
In 1984, Richard Dennis conducted an experiment teaching 14 people from all walks of life, to trade – and he did it in 2 weeks.
He then gave them a system to trade and they went on to make millions!
So why are blackjack playing skills so applicable to trading?
If you play blackjack successfully, you already have a non-emotional approach, and realize that you must apply a system with discipline to win – and this is exactly what the financial trader has to do.
A successful blackjack player knows that success relies on the following equation:
Sound method + applied with discipline + strict money management = Long term success.
You can apply these skills in trading financial markets, but the advantage is the stakes and profit potential are much higher.
It’s all about Following a System!
To learn a trading system is not hard, as Richard Dennis’s experiment showed, where he taught 14 people from diverse walks of life, to trade and make millions after only two weeks.
In fact, he put the success of his students not down to the system they traded, (it was relatively simple) but to teaching them to use discipline, and money management skills to complete the equation.
Some of the World’s Top Traders were Blackjack Players
You may not have considered that if you play blackjack successfully, you can apply your skills to trading financial markets – but you can, and many of the worlds top traders came to trading from the blackjack tables – in search of a bigger bankroll and you can too!
To Become a Successful Trader is within Your Grasp!
If you want to read the story of Blair HULL then the book “The New Market Wizards” gives a fascinating insight into the crossover of skills, and how he quickly and successfully became a winner in trading.
Just like blackjack, financial trading is a “game” where you compete with the market, rather than the casino.
The difference is, the stakes and rewards and much higher, but the skills needed are the same:
· A system applied with discipline
· Money management
· A cool approach
· A focus on the odds
