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?

It is by no means necessary, but I do see value in it (though i'm biased as I'm a CMT). What it does offer is a structured program of study that covers most technical analysis disciplines.
Based on my own experience, the required readings forced me to study areas that I wouldn't have considered on my own, and which I ultimately found useful to me.
It isn't going to teach you to trade but it is a disciplined way to study technical analysis.
I wouldn't have gone through all the material thoroughly on my own without the pending test hanging over my head.
As well, the organization is growing and in time their continuing ed offerings to membership will expand.
