I love this thread...

This gentleman will CHECK his CHILDS TUTOR TO MAKE SURE SHE IS CREDENTIALED, he'll RESEARCH his DENTIST TO SEE IF HE HAS ANY MALPRACTICE SUITES PENDING AND
he doesn't KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT, WHENEVER he BUYs A BUSINESS, he'll ASK TO LOOK AT THE BOOKS!


But... he'll indiscriminately drop 10k on a trading education w/out first doing the appropriate research to find out if these 'educational materials' are going to truly give him a statistical edge that would sway the probabilities in his favor.

All this... only to soon find out that trading isn't really trading until you've got real $ on the table, some skin in the game & there is a true risk of loss.

My advice... Sell all the stuff you bought, take that $ and start trading w/ it. Because thats when your real education is gonna begin!
