Yes, that was my point. Wouldn't you think it would be a good thing to be easily led to be successful in one, or more, areas of commerce? It's a lot easier to teach a young dog new tricks.
I see what you are saying now
However in this trading "game" the real knowledge is not open to all - so really the trainers and the teachers etc etc - are teaching the young dogs all the wrong tricks
Maybe only 10% or less of the tutors or trainers are successful at the actual art - so you then think might the ones who are successful - trade - and dont educate or pass on their inner knowledge - whereas the others can really only make their main money by selling what knowledge they have - and not just from trading alone ?
That knowledge passed onto more young dogs - sees more failures - ie a repeat cycle
For me - the Industry - the market - the guru's the market analysis guys etc etc - are all my enemy - and so I don't believe them.
My trading knowledge had to come via "self taught" along with help that fitted in with what I already knew from my past journey.
