The ITS thing that you are refering to is the secondary/seperate part to the FTS course. This, (fts)has been running a long time and is geared towards beginners. With the ITS course being designed for pure technical analysis of charts being aimed at the person with more understanding, and has only been going for a few years.
You can buy the manuals for both without the course(s), but the course brings it all together. I went on the FTS course shortly after I first started out and like most things is just down to common sense. (Once you know).
This knowledge is something you have to aquire one way or another.
Having just said that, I seem to remember that the FTS course was free. (came with the price of the manual.)
Though in practise after; there were a lot of things that I haven't used/ don't work (all the time.)
ITS do claim to be able to pinpoint the top 3 shares of each trading day and if certain conditions aren't met you don't trade.
Of course this leads to computers, software, price feeds, brokers, Spread betting etc etc. and which one to choose. After you have been on the course you are going to have what they use aren't you? unless you are already trading and have a trading system in place. In which case your system might not be compatable.
There are a lot of rip offs about out there, all with claims of this and that. Though I will say what I learnt from the FTS course has been useful and was a good basis to build on and never made wild cliams.
But it has taken me years to get a good understanding of this, and it doesn't matter how many years, days, months, or however long you study. You only start 'learning' the day you start trading. That's when it all becomes as clear as mud.
Thing is it's such a personal thing. Read the wrong books, go on the wrong courses, and the hole in your pocket becomes big as soon as you trade.
Look over the boards here, If you can; come into the trading rooms. Ask questions, there's a fair wealth of trading talent/knowledge there. just don't ask for a share tip! we wouldn't want to be responsible for any losses. But we may be able to help the way you trade. And you will certainly gain a greater understanding of the market/trading etc.
