Here are a few educators offering full mentorship and training courses (and (formerly BMT) review threads):

Trade the Euro Futures
( )

Jaguar Trading Club
( )

Valhalla Futures - Home
( )

If you want to try the self-directed route, this is just me, but I would suggest either
first reading Al Brook's 3 book set, and/or watch his video course in price action. ;

As well as some links of ideas:

Or start your own (formerly BMT) trading journal trying out an idea or your own system.

Good luck.

Trading is about 'finding' your own way and method.

A mentor can help to make the journey easier.
But in the end, your method and styles will need to be your own way.

If you try to duplicate someone else's method, you will have a continual struggle.
I suggest you read everything Mark Douglas has written.
Also, he has some excellent videos and seminar sessions.
Mark does not 'teach' you to trade but helps you develop your trading ability should you have any.

That is not what you wanted to hear...But.

Trading takes screen time, simulated trading, and hours of work.
If you don't follow that path you will probably be one of the new traders that posts how you have been scammed and bought a lot of trading courses or 'holy grail' indicators from a snake oil salesman.

It's like the Karate Kid movie...
Wax on... Wax off...
Seems like a useless task to learn the skill...
But the lesson is not in the task but in the repetition of the action.

Rejoice in the Thunderstorms of Life . . .
Knowing it's not about Clouds or Wind. . .
But Learning to Dance in the Rain ! ! !
