I can recommend https://www.targettradingacademy.com 888-203-3731

I was a total novice, had never traded anything before.
In July 2020 I met a professional futures trader, has managed a hedge fund in the past, he was 69 years old, still trades for himself. Upon asking many questions, he directed me to Target Trading Academy. I joined that month. It is solid education. They teach you the fundamentals, how to manage risk, and how to stay profitable.

I started with Patrick and learned his Market Profile method. Patrick is a drill sergeant. If you follow his system and learn it, you can make money. Stick with that basic MP method for 1-2 years. Then you can begin expanding your knowledge - AFTER you become profitable, and stay profitable for a year. But you've got to walk before you can run.

All of the TTA instructors are good. And there are some really amazing independent traders who stay in the trading rooms. You will get out of it what you put into it. Just stick with the basic MP method and don't get distracted by other things. We have to learn the fundamentals first.

I would venture very cautiously. Many trading courses/mentors are failed traders just trying to recover their own market losses by taking from students.

Look for proof of successful trading. Twitter screenshots do not qualify.

Also, make sure they teach what you want to learn. If you want to trade price action, you probably do not want to take an algo course, etc.

My rule of thumb "if it looks too good to be true, it probably is."

Be very skeptical.


Good Luck!

Use this forum.
There are some very knowedgable traders here.
If you have been trading for a few years you know the basics.
What exactly do you expect a course or mentor to do for you?
Ask some questions. Specific questions will get specific answers.

Be extremely cautious about looking for someone to teach you how to trade effectively. They are, after all, essentially promising they will teach you how to get rich. And quick too.

If seeing the words "get rich quick" together makes you feel uncomfortable, they should. I meant them to.

In this forum we see case after case of software vendors and training course vendors who have promised the moon, and then their disappointed customers realize they can't deliver -- and in some cases, never planned to, just wanted the money from hopeful traders looking for the answer to "how to do it. "

This does not mean that none of them are necessarily any good, but many are not. It's also a common thing for one trader to get a lot out of a vendor, but another to only have losses from using the same vendor's stuff. This is because you really can't be "taught" how to trade -- you will have to learn it, and applying someone else's answer is not necessarily going to help you. You might also consider the logic of the question, "If they're so good, why are they selling this for a few hundred (or thousand), instead of just trading it themselves and getting rich?" This is a question to always have in front of your mind as you consider someone's offerings.

With that said, if you take a look at the vendor reviews in the Trading Reviews and Vendors section, you will find actual customer reviews of a range of vendors. Some may sound good to you. Just be careful. It's a "let the buyer beware" world out there. You can access the reviews section from the main page of the site, or with this link: https://futures.io/trading-reviews-vendors/

I am moving this thread from the generic "Traders Hideout" section to "Trading Reviews and Vendors," partially because that location is more descriptive, and partly because there are restrictions on who can post to a thread in the Review section: they will have to either be Elite members or to have had at least 10 prior posts, so at least we will have seen them here before. It is amazing how many pure spammers the moderators have to toss off the forum. Putting this thread in the Review section may cut down on the non-serious replies you get.

Good luck. This is a difficult journey you're on.

PS, I just saw @deaddog's post, and I agree strongly. Post in the forum about things you want to understand or use or do. You might want to start a trading journal and post your trades, even if they are only in sim, and invite discussion. And just read a lot of what's posted here. Join in when you think it's appropriate. Every single trader here has been in a place somewhat like where you are in now, and people will extend their help and suggestions, if you ask.

Can the OP reply to his thread with only one post?

Oops I see he is an elite member.

Hot take incoming...

but I think all paid-for trading courses on the internet are a scam in one way or another.

Don't @me with, "I know a guy who had results," or "I learned how to trade with a trading course," or something similar. I'm sure there are some exceptions somewhere.

IMO for the OP... spend that money elsewhere or lose it in the market. You'd probably learn more from losing that money on a few trades than you would a trading course.

Losing some money, if you don't let it knock you down, is a very good way to learn. You're going to lose some anyway, after all, so might as well learn while you do.

Problem is most people never learn from losing money. They just keep losing.
