Main Mistake of a Trader:

Failure to understand who you are: a professional or an amateur
A professional has a command of trading technique which he can describe, apply and change.
An amateur can tell you how he works, but will never explain why.

So without education you can be only an amateur. If you want to be a professional you neen to learn. You can learn by self (long time) or with the help of others (short time)

Imho it's up to you who you think either professional or amateur, many so called amateur are profitable and many so called professional aren't. Market can be explained when it's already over, but there's no guarantee what it will do in the future. So my guess is as good as anybody else. If you think your technique is great, why don't you just share it to us here so maybe we can learn a thing or trying to sell a course here isn't allowed unless you've been approved by the site admin.
