My turn to confess,

2013-14 Penny stock era (cringe). This was the time I had so much enthusiasm and I naively thought trading was about knowing what price will do next. Trading without stops and getting frustrated when my hunches were wrong lol.

Platform licence for DAS trader
3 Months in Tim Sykes trading room
2 Months in Investors Live
Investors Live Textbook Trading DVD ($500 at the time, now $1000)
Reminisces of a stock operator
3000 in a blown up account

2014-15 Spread Betting Forex era. Now I'm starting to learn. I understand trading is a game of probabilities, cutting losses quick and maximising profits gains but actually putting it into practice was impossible.

TC2000 charting software
Online Trading Academy Forex course (a whopping 9000)
Every popular trading book you can think of (Market Wizards series, Trend Following by Michael Coval, Van Tharps books etc. Probably cost me somewhere around 300 to 400). I must say these purchases I don't regret. I learn't at least one valuable thing from all of them.
2500 in trading losses

That brings us up to today...

NinjaTrader lifetime licence

Glad I got that all off my chest!
