I was part of the James16 group (forex) for a month. It was OK, nothing spectacular. You can get pretty much all the material from his free thread on forexfactory or the free guest material on his site (sorry can't post links yet). . It's OK to join for 1 month at $129 if you're a beginner. The MM and psychology sections are pretty good. Other members put up their systems, but they're nothing spectacular. You can get better info on this forum IMHO.
Quite a while ago I joined Phil Newton's trading-strategies.info site. He mainly traded forex and occasionally the eminis. I was way too new to trading to get much out of his site but he is a good teacher and trader. I've had success with some of his setups like the Fake Break Reversal and R'n'B. He dramatically raised prices recently.
I would recommend "No B.S. Day Trading". It is very compelling and will cost you a bit less than the other courses out there.
I have learned a lot from this guy, and i can tell you that reading his book was an eyeopening experience.
Give it a try, you won't regret it for that money.
Van Tharp's Peak Performance focuses on the most sensitive variable in trading equation - you. Helps you understand where you may parts within yourself that are in conflict, for example -
- part of you values security and so you may get anxious before a trade
- part of you wants to protect you from failure, so you procrastinate when you get a signal
- part of you protects your self-esteem, so you don't take losses quickly (until they're big)
- part of you wants to be right and generates a bias thats in conflict with your signals
When a guru teaches a new trading system, he/she doesn't teach the mental syntax they use to successfully trade the system , and most purchasers will give up after a few consecutive losses. Peak Performance is helping me think like a pro, and its beginning to make a big difference (and I sleep better at night)
tons of free webinars there. then trader's kingdom has some more. Find out what you like, whom you respect, etc. before spending any money. I wasted some money on stupid courses. I tell you one thing if it doesn't look professional then run because the ones I've seen were just some guy rambling with no agenda or anything else.

You can find almost everything you want for FREE by searching the internet.
I spent some good funds on courses in my early days. Many of them were not even remotely worth what they cost, most especially if they came from Trader's Library or MarketPlace Books. Even the more expensive courses are often poorly compiled and unprofessionally delivered, qualifying more as a promotional to further selling you more expensive services like "advanced courses", trading rooms, signal services, scanning software or proprietary indicators.
Some of the best video trading instruction comes via YOUTUBE.COM videos. I'm amazed at what I've been able to learn from obscure "Joe Traders" who made videos of their strategies.
The best instruction, IMO, comes from the myriad of excellent books that have been professionally published. NONE of the courses costing hundreds to thousands of dollars comes close to the well-written books. (ie: "Mastering The Trade" by John Carter). That is just one -- there are MANY that are excellent.
Search the internet ... and make time to study what you find.
