Hi all!

Its really nice to be here! I am a complete beginner and I have been reading a lot of the posts from many members.

Can anyone advise me which courses are highly recommended? Ia m looking for a structured course that will provide a strong foundation and has a mentoring program. If there is one program you would take as a total newbie, which would it be? I understand that the success varies from person to person, I get that. But which course, in your opinion, would ensure the best possible chance of survival in the real trading world? I have to start somewhere right?

Hope to learn even more from all of you guys!

Roger

Best thing for me wasn't any particular course in the beginning in fact I'd advise you stay away from expensive courses. First get an account/broker and open some positions and get stuck in, from then you'll develop some specific questions you want to chase down and will find educational material fitting your needs. for my 2cents there's no magic bullet training that's worth 1% of your knowledge from being in a position and seeing how the market you chose to trade behaves.

Best place to start other than that is going to amazon and buying lots of books. If you search the threads here for reading materials you'll find some great suggestions. 100% of what you need you can get for free just keep that in mind.

Good luck on your journey.

Sands.

In my opinion the single most valuable thread on futures.io (formerly BMT) for new traders is:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/11125-ask-any-trading-question.html

Read every single post front to back. By the end, it should be obvious why most traders fail, and then you can put your effort into avoiding their same mistakes.

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.
6)
