Donalddye I also took a course recently from Brad Gilbert, who was chief FX trader at a major bank. He teaches you how to put fundamentals and technicals together, very simple and few indicators. Many swing trades start from key fundamental news releases. He has webinars before red news events as you can see on forexfactory.com. His site is at Forex Trading Club | Forex Training Courses | Traders4Traders.com. I'm still a subscriber with him. I subscribed to them through a third party so I got into the course at a discount. You can skype me to ask any questions.

A couple of years ago I took Steve Mauro's course. It's similar to Martin Cole. I've found it helpful but works under certain market conditions, will not work under thin market conditions such as summer or during December Christmas holiday period.

This may sound harsh but if you lost $9000 on a software mistake, you are way ahead of yourself in terms of trading live. That kind of mistake tells me that you may not have done any simulated trading, or even backtested your strategy.

If you want to be a trader, you must first determine what kind of trader, swing trades, positional trades, day trades, scalper etc. Once that's done you need to determine are you going to be a breakout trader, trend follower, fade trader, formation trader etc. There is so much information here that can help you in that regard. Before you spend money on education, get as much as you can here, and that may help you decide how much and what kind of education you need.

You should also take the advice of managing RISK, and for you, the best way to do that at the moment is not trade live until you are sure of what you are doing. You not only want to protect your Monetary Capital, but you also want to protect your Emotional/Psychological Capital as well.
