don't spend money on trading courses, instead try BP or youtube for learning and open a demo account side by side, you'll learn a lot.

Of course the website has to make money. Still great education for free though.
hey there ..I am well aware of the commercial nature of websites and income generation ...my issue is Babypips approach to vendors (it may have changed now) and the lack of transparency to members

Hi,

I recommend to you: Trading Educators, Joe Ross Trading Method. You can get his brochure with a description of his favorite pattern 1-2-3 reversal pattern for free.
Very interesting books, really worth attention. Full trading knowledge and wisdom. There is private tuition.
agreed Joe Ross is interesting stuff.........I still maintain though that every trader needs to amalgamate ideas and trade their own style

go out and absorb / learn research EVERYTHING you can !!!

then sit in a darkened room and piece together your system from the best bits you liked ....like a kind of frankenstein monster !

then take about 3-5 year of fine tuning and you will be profitable eventually

I think spending money to learn forex is totally wastage, there are numerous sources on internet which are absolutely free. To cover the basics of trading you can refer to school of pipsology on babypips.

There are many good FREE courses out there but I've linked my favourite Youtube trading series. It’ll really help you understand the fundamentals of trading as a beginner. you’ll learn so many valuable truths. You don’t want to listen to other retail traders and their strategies, this will just mislead you. If you can find yourself a mentor, then so be it. trading is a slow process, its all about building a portfolio into retirement, not a get rich quick scheme. good luck out there

There are lot of Forex-related infromation within the Internet, so it is extremely important to find out whether it is reliable or not. Most of the courses are provided by so-called "gurus" being more media actors than traders. Every time looking for the courses ask yourself: "What should make a successful trader (trading for living) to spend time to create and promote educational courses instead or earning more by trading?"
If you want to invest in trading, it would be better to buy books, written by real market professionals, or special software (for example, Forex Tester, software for backtesting), or subscribe for advanced newsfeed (like Briefing or IQFeed), even to upgrade your software - all these would be better than buying one more "super extra profitable course" from an unknown "guru".

At the same time, there are several well-known professional traders sharing their experience for free. They have developed their trading process to be the most possible productive, some of them even established their trading companies to delegate some routine tasks, so they have free time to share their experience. The main point is that they do it for free, with the only intend to contribute something to the worldwide trading community.

look guys ..........no one can become a professional and consistently profitable trader without help....

I would love to tell you that it is possible to go there all alone but you cant ........

just as in life , business , sports , vocations , personal development .........where ever you strive to better yourself to the highest levels of sustained performance ........

You are at some point gonna need help ........

however that doesnt mean rush out and find the first person who tells you he will make you richer , fitter , faster , smarter , healthier ..............you know it cant work like that !

I suggest you

take your time .......
decide what you really want to achieve ...dont be vague , map it out down to real details
Utilise free resources to do this phase ... just buy a book on goal setting to help you if needed


spend a long as you need on this phase .........engage both the emotional and logical parts of your brain and try to sense and feel where you want to go..........as much as possible...both sides will be telling you things so listen and follow / test !

then start the journey .........still if possible unemcumbered by any heavy mentoring or coaching until absolutely necessary

i know this sounds dumb but i truly believe that fate and circumstances will get you to where you need to be over time .....Buddism teaches that everything in life happens to people at the perfect time and place ........even though people dont ever think that at the time !

anyway im just saying dont rush it and let it all flow .........but we all need help at times ....just make sure its the right time and what you re looking for...not some blind hope that a magical messiah has appeared to you !

Let' see if we can't be a little more specific. Be realistic about how much time and energy you have to trade; if you are a reasonably normal person living a reasonably normal life, then you probably have a number of other commitments to fulfill -
work, family, etc. Don't try to scalp small timeframes if you don't have the time or temperament to do it; also it's difficult to overcome business expenses on small timeframes. Don't look for mentors or trading courses that put forward the idea that filtering price action in a particular way will lead to consistent profitability; if there was such an approach then what institution would take the other side of that trade. In my opinion if you want to have a chance at successful trading learn how recognize a
reasonable trade and learn how to manage it. Stay away from scalping it's too difficult to be a consistently profitable scalper for most people; better to focus on swing trading.

Scalping is probably essential negative experience you have to get to understand all benefits of swing trading.
