Reminisces of a stock operator

2014-15 Spread Betting Forex era. Now I'm starting to learn. I understand trading is a game of probabilities, cutting losses quick and maximising profits gains but actually putting it into practice was impossible.
TC2000 charting software
Online Trading Academy Forex course (a whopping £9000)
Every popular trading book you can think of (Market Wizards series, Trend Following by Michael Coval, Van Tharps books etc. Probably cost me somewhere around £300 to £400). I must say these purchases I don't regret. I learn't at least one valuable thing from all of them.
