Any update on this??

I would be very interested in a webinar with the info listed in the original post.

I am just starting and I would like to see all of the questions answered. I have been studying CS chart reading, and I have done a little Sim Trading on NT, but I really do not know where to go from here.

I do not want to learn how to use one charting device and then find that this is not the best to use. I also have no idea how to choose a broker. What should i look for, what should i avoid? What are reasonable fees?

Please keep yhis post updated. The links listed above were very helpful as well.

Do you have what it takes to trade real money? If not, nothing else matters.

It doesn't matter what broker, indicators, platform or system you use if you don't have the right mindset. What is that mindset? Here is a clue.

Hi Mike.

That's a good idea, a webinar to educate the newcomers.

For me personally the best and only book/course that was capable of showing me the business side of trading was the The Art and Craft of Trading by Rich Leonardi. He has also this same course available in .mp3 (for free) at Squawk Trader.

He explains in detail his trading strategy (not system). The money management chapter is by far the simplest and the most easiest MM I have ever read. He gives all the math necessary to retrieve all the data you need to know to trade in the most secure environment possible.

After spending thousands of dollars in books and courses I never thought that a simple ebook would be the one finally able to open the doors to heaven

Trading is more than charts and indicators, is above all a business and if we don't know how to run a business we are half way to ruin.

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die
