Trading is oftentimes a story of survival and reinvention. Every trader runs into periods where their strategy is not performing as expected. It's what they do at those points that will either ensure they can continue their trading passion or bury their account. Patrick Rooney started trading in the Eurodollar pit on the floor of the CME. Then, he became an electronic trader, employing discretionary strategies. When those strategies went out of favor, Patrick became a fully automated trader. No matter where you are in your trading, you can learn from Patrick's journey and continuous study and change. Find Patrick on Twitter at @patrickrooney.
