In short, I have no experience in trading futures, or forex, I know nothing. I figured maybe one of you can point me in the direction of a product that is worth the investment and time.

There is no "product" that is going to make you money trading. The sooner you realize this, the better.

There are no short cuts. There are no holy grails.

If you want to become a neurosurgeon, earning hundreds of thousands per year, you have to attend many, many years of medical school, you need degrees, licenses, and a huge amount of hands-on experience.

The same is true of almost any professional career. Trading is no different.

The best resource for information is to read the posts and threads on the site, and start participating on the forum. In a few years, you'll begin to make sense of it all, and you'll have a chance to earn some money if you have worked very, very hard.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
