Al Brooks may or may not be making money but its quite unlikely that I'll by copying him. Knowing that, why send my hard earned money down the drain?

I don't think you can make money by blindly copying anybody. Silver bullets don't exist. I believe you need to understand what it is that an individual is trying to capture in their approach, internalise it, and see if it works for you. People are complex and there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

If I use Al Brooks' materials to see if a price action approach is useful, surely I will learn something of value, even if that "something" is the conclusion that price action doesn't work for me! And a cost of a few hundred dollars spread over a couple of years is no big deal. The cost of the time involved is far more significant than the money, but the course is well-structured, if repetitive, so it gives people a place to start.

Good Morning Bob,

I agree with you and apologize for my rudeness and being un polite to you sir.

Have a good and safe day.

No problem, man.

Bob.

Completely agree, and this is the only case where blowing trough these courses may not always be waste, especially very early in your trading career.

But then again, its individual preference and some individuals can be very resourceful on their own to even save minor amounts.

I've read a lot of differing views on gurus and coaches, etc and I had a thought -you can know a hell of a lot about a subject without necessarily being able to earn a living at it, and that's ok.

For example, millions of people play chess. But how many people can make a living playing chess? Probably less than 10 on the planet. But if you're number 217 in the world you still have a lot of expertise. So you write books and give 1-1 tuition, etc. Would any students ask to see your earnings from playing chess?

On the other hand, say you took a course in screenwriting. And you asked the tutor whether he had any screenplays made into movies and he told you no. You'd probably leave that class.

I guess for me it comes down to some demonstrable level of competency in a teacher on which I can build. That could be money but it doesn't have to be.
