All you need to know and much more is for free here on futures.io (formerly BMT).

If I had known that before, it would saved me around $10.000 in education.

But you're a pilot, metal, and quite mechanical, and I'm a monkey.
I learn by watching other people do.

I tried both links and they worked. I'd try them again or search for trading-naked.com and babypips.com.

I agree with others. The trading school approach may not be the best way to go.

There is no "quick way" to learn this business. I think you can accelerate the process by addressing psychological aspects first. Do you know yourself. How would you react to a losing trade? How would you react to 10 losing trades? Would you revenge trade? Meaning, would you double or triple your size to try and make up for the losses of the other trades? Do you want to trade short, medium or longer term? Are you patient? Can you follow rules? It may seem odd, but I don't think it comes down to methods and gurus etc. I think you have to have your mind right first, then learn methods etc. If the method is profitable half the time and your winners are bigger than losers you will end up on top.

Metal, as I said, I learn by watching other people do.
I could do well with Perry Method but need to see someone use it.
That would give me confidence and, more importantly, more knowledge.
Unfortunately, that isn't available at futures.io (formerly BMT). Would be awesome if Perry had
a trading room. I put in a ton of hours to walk away from my investment.

I don't understand. The rules for entry are strictly defined at the perry system. What do we need to show you ? How to enter a trade ?

for what is worth... keep in mind we dont all learn the same way... some of us need mentoring, while others can capture things without any issues... and then there are those that understand things better when explained by someone in person and being able to have that interaction to clarify the concepts and points of views being acquired...

That is a very good point and missed by most. Their are genetic differences between people's ability to pick things up using different forms of delivery like kinesthetic, auditory etc..

For me, when people talk about Universities giving 'real' education I have to laugh. Maybe for the theoretical industrial age jobs they want to plant the sheep in to somehow climb to the top so they can reap the rewards. For people like me, that type of instruction is DEATH, much like school was growing up. Strictly punishment by boring a person to death.

It is funny as you will see a general discussion on many threads that you don't need this. ONLY THIS way and you will be a master.

You are cutting corners way to fast here, indeed for some or most regular people university is a waste of time. For a few, it's an enabler to dig into a subject or specialization and to be surrounded by extraordinary people who form your character by giving you impulses of all sorts. I have to admit that you have to search for it, but it's there in most universities. The most important task a university has for me is to trigger your interest. I became a changed person by listening to some great professors at the university, they showed me the way to some great books and some great insights. You have to blame only yourself, and not the teachers for failing to find it.

That's what you need to find in a university. Not a make me rich, teach it all scheme. Real life starts after university.

Life is not all about how much money you make.

I just visited their website....their setups could have pulled out 1300 pips out of a 300 pip move in 6 days ( recent trade example on their website).


Jtrade, what do you think of these bold claims ? I think even Warren Buffet would have peed himself reading this.

The one & only trading course I recommend to friends who ask is The MAX Trading System : Free MAX Webinar | The MAX Trading System .

I personally took the Standard course in September 2009 and next week start the new SAM (Super Advanced MAX) course. They have excellent ongoing support & the courses involve a lot of homework : as always, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it.

I should clarify that I have been trading since 1998 and do not use a MAX template on my primary intraday trading chart; nevertheless I frequently (as in every trading day) switch to my MAX template for a "second opinion" on my trades (very easy to do in Ninja).

So, all in all, I think The MAX is an excellent place to start (or refresh) - they have free introductory webinars from time to time and you can make a steady progression through their courses, making each one "pay for itself" before moving to the next level.

... but MetalTrade is right, there is MUCH more to trading than getting your trading method straight. I do Ed Seykota's TTP as an ongoing way of addressing these (and other) issues : Welcome .

J.
