Why We Wouldn’t Be A Good Fit For You…

January 25, 2024

Yes, you read that right.

This blog is all about the reasons why we wouldn’t be a good fit for you.

You may or may not have missed it but in 2023, POW decided to move to an application process only.

This was to ensure that we only work with committed traders, who are willing to follow our blueprint to success and put the time, effort and energy into learning and implementing what we teach.

That meant that a large chunk of our applicants would unfortunately end up missing out altogether, as we have very specific criteria that would need to be met in order to be accepted and offered the opportunity to join our community.

Because here’s the thing right, we want our traders to be successful.

We want to see you win.

And we’ve got a process that can make it happen.

But the only way that’s going to happen is if we attract the right people, with the right mindset and people who are willing to put in the effort.

And we know from experience that the people who don’t see results inside our community, are the people who fall into some, if not all of the categories below.

With that being said and to potentially save you some time, here’s 8 reasons why you WOULDN’T be a good fit for our community…

  1. Lack Of Commitment.

Trading requires absolute dedication and consistent effort - week in, week out. It’s not something you can do half heartedly, especially if you want to see results and ultimately become a profitable trader.

Because even though we’re an ‘Algo’ trading group that can help make the process easier, you still need to be committed to making it work.

Another way to think of it is like this…

What other industry, business, venture, project etc - are you able to be truly successful in - without being completely committed to the process?

If you want to lose weight, you have to commit to it.

If you want to build a business, you have to commit to the process.

Trading is no different.

  1. You’re Too Impatient.

You expect to see results from day one, be fully funded in a few weeks and to be rich in 6 months.

But as you can probably see these expectations are largely unrealistic - no matter what the ‘gurus’ might tell you.

Because the truth is, it’s going to take time and anyone that tells you otherwise is lying.

Trading is a game of patience and perseverance.

  1. You Have Unrealistic Expectations.

Now this is probably not your fault. 

YouTube and social media has helped portray this fantasy idea that trading is all about Lambo’s, Ferraris and big houses - or the fact that it’s easy and anyone can do it…when in fact, the success rates are insanely low.

And whilst we know how to capitalise and maximise the opportunity in front of us - such as scaling prop firms and live capital - it’s not going to happen overnight.

Curb your expectations and you’ll stand a bigger chance of seeing success long term.

  1. You Lack Emotional Control.

There is no doubt about it, trading can be stressful and whilst our products such as the Banker EA can help simplify the process and make it easier to succeed…

The tools are only as good as the person using them.

If you’re someone that lacks emotional control or you easily let your emotions get the better of you, then you’re probably going to struggle.

Luckily for our members, we have a Hypnosis tool that can help them with this.

  1. You’re Always Looking For The Next Best Thing.

Getting distracted, strategy hoping, always searching for that next best thing - if something doesn’t work straight away then bin it and move on.

Sound familiar?

These are traits that will keep you going round in circles and limit your progress inside our community.

  1. Resistance To Learning New Strategies.

The world of trading is dynamic - it’s forever changing and it’s no different when inside POW.

We value ourselves as being a progressive trading company, and one that’s always staying ahead of the curve by testing and implementing new ideas, strategies and products to keep up with the markets.

In other words, if you’re not willing to learn, adapt and evolve then unfortunately we’re not going to be a good fit.

  1. You Think You Know It All.

A little harsh, but true.

We often get traders who come into POW thinking they know it all and 9 times out of 10, get humbled very quickly.

Mainly because trading with an EA, backtesting, learning how to effectively analyse data and use correct risk management takes time to understand.

And I know what you’re thinking, yes it does help to have some knowledge and understanding of the markets and trading in general, but it’s important to come into POW with an open mindset.

Drop the ego and you’ll do just fine.

  1. You’re Just Not Ready Yet.

And that isn’t a criticism, but maybe you’re just not ready yet?

Which is fine because it’s not to say that you’ll never be ready - it’s just that you’re not ready yet.


Maybe you are?

If that’s the case and you think you understand what it takes to be a success inside POW, then click HERE, fill out an application and we’ll get back to you asap.

To your success,

The POW Team.
