    How about some proof that you’be been offered $40 million actually ?

      Well james it was a call when I was out so can’t exactly give you proof of a call, but if you don’t want to take my word for it there’s not much point you following our videos is there?

      There has to be trust and Kym and I do a lot to give people trust in what we do and that we are real traders. But if after everything we do, you still don’t trust me, there’s not much I can say to you now…

        If that is the best answer you could come up with, you are a fraud. As if one manages a fund with just a phone call, no official paperwork whatsoever. Fund management have to answer to regulated financial bodies. You can even look up who the fund manager of a specific fund. Where is your name? You are a fraud.

          You are totally incorrect. You don’t know anything about what this was. It’s a contact I know in the U.S who manages money so it has nothing to do with the UK plus I already knew him from past history of trading. Be careful of calling people a fraud!

    Well Charlie, you know how reporting to other people can be a pain the ass. But if there’s a way to make even more money, why not? While I still managing this fund it’s going to be like having a job, but when I finally leave it I would have even more money.

    I’d keep my things with my own money and this fund money. I would not withdraw the profits from my personal account because I’d have the fees of the other account to pay my bills and save some for the retirement.

    Psychologically I don’t know how would it affect me, even knowing that I only need to do everything as always. But if the R:R is good, I mean, if I don’t lose much for trying it… My answer would be yes 😀

    Being able to successfully manage such a big amount of money is good for the Curriculum. So I would definitely look for more big investors, build a company, recruit some experienced Traders to working for me and some other folks to manage the company/money and then, finally, all that I need to do is to sell the company and enjoy my retirement somewhere far away…

    WOW! I went to far 😀

    Have a happy Christmas and a great new year,

    Maybe I am showing my ignorance here but isn’t your level of interest influenced by the terms of the deal/contract offered to go along with the cash?

    • Charlie Burton-Reply
      December 21, 2015 at 8:36 am

      Hi Greg. I guess like anything else the level of interest may be affected by the deal. I’m just posing the question in the video to see what other factors people raise and this is certainly one!

    Charlie thank you for posting videos like this. For the fund account management I guess you have to weight in the pros and cons and then decide. I know it isn’t just about the money. I would like to ask you about the challenge account will in April be the first update?

    HI Charlie,

    I would take it , trade it for 4 or 5 years which surely will give me feeling of a job but after that I can retire again with a redundancy package 🙂

    Hi Charlie

    After being self employed for 17 years and making my own decisions and only really being accountable to myself(once the product I produced was to a high standard) I then spent nearly 3 years doing contract work being responsible to various other professionals and clients, having weekly meetings, producing reports and dealing with changes requested and the clients’ moods I have returned to working for myself. I found I was spending more time dealing with the client than actually doing a job job on the core project.If you are making plenty of money from trading your own account and are happy with what you do then why add the stress. On the other hand if you are bored and want a new challenge then go for it!

    If I could earn a decent living from trading my own money there’s no way I’d put myself in a position where I was obligated to anyone else. After a certain point having more money makes very little (if any) difference to your happiness but complete independence is real freedom. I wouldn’t give that up… Just my opinion though 🙂 Have an awesome Christmas Charlie!

    Hi Charlie
    No. I would not do it. Life is too short as it is. One has to find a good balance between making money to live off (which should be fun doing) and good hobbies friends etc. I recon you onto a good wicket (with your business and trading) why complicate matters.
    Thank you and Kym for all your effort to get me to a better place in my life.

    Charlie, thats fantastic, but of course who has ever doubted your awesome skills 🙂
    What would i do, well i cant really imagine this scenario right now hehe, but i would probably sit in meditation, dig down and see what i am really made of and what do i really want… i would think this is now less to do with the money (because you have that .. i mean some people think you can never have enough money but this i dont think to be true) and more to do with how far do i want to push my own capacity .. do i want to test the limits of what i can do? this will be more to do with the “game” itself, if i may call it so… whats more important really, do i want to try to become the next George Soros or i am happy with where i am right now and with work/family balance…
    Do i have all i need right here right now? why take this new challenge? and what is the cost of taking this? do i still want to prove something to myself or i dont need to anymore … these are the things i would think about and maybe, unless i need to prove something to myself and unless i could think of things i cant afford right now that this will allow me to do so, i would turn it down 🙂

    Hi Charlie,

    Some time ago you mentioned that if you trade in the morning you have enough time later for grass cutting.
    If you take the money (in fact additional job), what will happen with your lawn in that situation ? 🙂

    Hi Charlie,

    Personally I would not want the pressure or life style compromises that you eluded to. Do you think it would be less personal compromise for you if you had a Burton Fund Management Ltd that managed funds through traders that you trained/mentored?. You would be on the executive board of BFM leaving the day to day pressures to someone else. One question I have is, would you be trading the same instruments that you do now, e.g. Forex pairs and how many points/trades does a 40M account need to make over a year?

  14. Greg-Reply

    Hi Charlie

    Firstly thanks for your Friday video’s.. You are the only person i have come across who trades live and has 100% confidence in your strategy whether you win or lose. Its refreshing to see in this industry.
    Regarding the $40 million.. I think it comes down to personal choice. Do you really want to be reporting to somebody again? From the BBC Doc you seem to have a comfortable lifestyle, so does the additional money you could earn outweigh your work/life balance etc? Would trading that amount of money effect your psychology, which we know is 90% of this game? Would trading that amount of money allow you to trade in the same way. Would you be able to get the same fill’s/exits etc or would you have to scale in/out?
    For me personal it would be a tough call. If you can earn enough money trading your own account and only be accountable to yourself and family, why add additional pressure to what could be seen as one of the hardest jobs in the world to be a success at anyway.
    I wish you all the success whichever path you choose.
    Have a great xmas & new year

    Hi Charlie

    I would leave it alone. One of the reasons for wanting to be a full time trader is to have the freedom to do what you want, when you want and if I was in your position, I would concentrate on my trading and the business instead.

    Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Hi Charlie, I would go for it! A $40,000,000 allocation is a pretty good offer. On a 2/20 profile you could make about £1,000,000 for a modest 10% return on the account.

    • Charlie Burton-Reply
      December 21, 2015 at 2:35 pm

      good point made…

  18. December 21, 2015 at 3:02 pm

    The way I see it Charlie, you dont need anything more in your life, it all comes down to that word “Greed” Why would you sacrifice your wonderful lifestyle to have excess cash in the bank, Maybe when you were in your early days of trading, when you were in it for the money! You have all the things you want in your life and should be looking to start to kick back a bit more and really enjoy the fruits of your labour rather than taking on additional stress and commitment!

    Aside from that, I think trading an account of that nature is a very different beast and will almost certainly not handle in the same way as trading an account that’s is far smaller…and you may or may not see the same success that you have found in the past!

    To sum it up, if this opportunity arose 10-15 years earlier in your life, then I would have said go for it! But now it doesn’t have the same attraction, as you have already proven yourself and made a great life from successful trading!

    These are my opinions only and im probably totally wrong but from what I have seen and know of you in my humble opinion you have achieved everything that someone looking to get into trading wants to achieve and then some!

      Well I wanted to see the collective thoughts of traders and that’s been interesting as you can see on this page. So it comes down to other factors such as can it happen without interfering? Will see…

  20. Manoj-Reply
    December 21, 2015 at 6:51 pm

    Hi Charlie,
    If you traded such an account would you have to swing trade only – I assume that the shorter term daytrades you demonstrate on fridays are not really scaleable to a 40million account as you would not get the precise fills and exits such a strategy requires.
    Or am I incorrect there ? Is there really so much liquidity in forex that you can get instant fills with 200 lots upwards ?
    Secondly what sort of track record and for what sort of time period does one need to demonstrate before investors start coming to you ?
    Happy Xmas to you all.

    • Charlie Burton-Reply
      December 21, 2015 at 7:03 pm

      Yes correct Manoj. You wouldn’t trade it in the same way…

  21. Manoj-Reply
    December 21, 2015 at 8:06 pm

    following on from that, just from curiosity do you then only trade on a weekly or monthly time frame when you are moving such sums around.
    Also, do you then trade with no leverage at all or can you still leverage a 40 million account by a factor of perhaps 2 to 3 ?

    • Charlie Burton-Reply
      December 21, 2015 at 8:50 pm

      Yes higher timeframes and yes you can still use leverage but its not really done much

    Hi Charlie,

    Why Bother?

    I have no doubt that you are already financially very comfortable. You could within reason, have what ever you desire (financially anyway).
    I had a heart attack at the age of 42, which was without doubt partly due to work load and the stress that comes with it. Fortunately i am still extremely fit, but having gone through that experience i have to say that it makes you think about what you are doing with your life.
    In my opinion make sure you keep the work/ leisure balance right for you.

    Hello Charlie
    Well, you sure got some comments! I came into all this the other way round, worked for 30 years with one Co. and holding a good job , then redundant at age 53. I had been trading for about 10 years whilst working then went full time to make some real money for myself. This was 21years ago next month. It was one of the best things that happened to me — the stress fell away, I reported to just me and I still love trading for the sheer hell of it all.
    I reckon your big point is contact with everyone who use your site, you enjoy sharing your skills and knowledge and you will be reluctant to see this slip away. So if I was a betting man (?) I know where I would put my money on your decision.!
    On a technical level, your big skill is playing the trade once a position has been opened, many a time when watching your videos I have been urging you to close now, but no, your discipline is much better than mine! if you traded a fund…. ?

    Have a good Christmas and a happy New Year Brian
