Hello Traders, Trading education comes in all shapes and sizes, and costs anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. The cost definitely does not equal quality. Some of them actually trade, but many are just trying to sell you something. If you hear things like make millions, guaranteed monthly profits, 95%+ win rate, then it is up to you to be skeptical. Marketing is a powerful thing, and we have seen it all like the email everyday or those countdown timers giving you a limited time to decide. We believe that having a mentor/coach is extremely valuable … Read More

Being selective and taking fewer trades is difficult for traders, because after all we make money from … Read More

Hello Traders! Trading is about probabilities, and they work best in large sample sizes. 40 trades will get you started but it’s not nearly enough to measure the success of a strategy. 200 trades and you will begin to see the probability at work as the margin of error decreases dramatically. One problem with most traders is that they don’t give a strategy a chance to get to a large sample size. Losses are a part of trading; strategies go through periods where they do well, periods where they tread water and periods where they don’t do well at all. … Read More
