Hi awllee. Hope you find this late reply - just found your thread by accident.
Went on Rob's series of courses about 3-4 yrs ago. If I had followed his guidelines on TA more closely over the subsequent 3 yrs I would have lost a great deal less money than I have. However, I have to say that where I did follow his guidance was in the area of stop-losses - this has enabled me to survive and stay in the game long enough to learn more about the markets and TA, but most importantly about myself and how I deal with real market situations (with real money, not figures on paper).
He gives a good introduction to TA - there's a heck of a lot more to it - and his prices were not astronomical. He's a nice guy and its a good place to start.
that would either be a TA course Examiner, or probably somebody not too well qualified to judge then, surely? If you keep attending the courses it suggests you keep trying to locate the magic bullet shop....
As 'a good course', in my view, is one with nice cakes, good coffee, and sweeties plus sparkly water on the tables, I am perhaps not overly qualified on this score.
DaveJB - In that case you would find the courses offered by Robert Newgrosch very good! :cheesy:
I went on his courses about 5 years ago and found them to be comprehensive, well put together, and with a very knowledgeable presenter who didn't just blindly follow what the classic TA texts present as "fact". He has clearly done a lot of thinking for himself.
I think the best way to get the most from these courses would be to do some background reading first, and use them to add the polish. My view on courses has always been that the onus is on me to learn, rather than for the presenter to inflict knowledge into my passive carcase. Anything you can do to help yourself will help you to gain the most from the presenter.
Where do I sign up? Does he do Maple Pecan danish? (If I ever get into the snake oil market I promise the catering will be top notch... I'm a sucker for a good bun).
Just to add to the lustre, I've never been on a course, but I've also heard nothing but praise for them.
Rob - check my website for where to send the bun.
By the way,
as I clicked submit I couldn't help notice I have 'Senior Citizen' under my name, or some such. Now, frankly, it does T2W no credit at all to apply such plaudits to the (let's face it) more eccentric poster, I think the posting limit should be raised to discourage this sort of thing.
There is a fine line between genius and insanity, you have just been privileged to listen to a man regarded by his peers as 'almost a genius'.
I vote 'Senor Whiner' be raised to some impossible figure so that casual browsers not be put off by seeing the terminally insane awarded such undeserved marks of apparent recognition.
You think you have it hard, poor old Bonsai was only born last month and became an old man in the first week. He is also aging at what must be the fastest rate ever on T2W. Count your lucky stars you lasted several months.
That's going into my next stats bash... the 'Bonsai-Glenn' seesaw effect. They'll both be 'Stunningly Senior Posters' by next week, privately I think that's why Sharky wants three domains - it's to fit all the market direction posts in!
If Sharky's reading this how about a game based on Webalizer stats... 'most unlikely browser location', we could allocate pts to countries then multiply by numbers if discrete browsers? I don't think I've seen anyone from Papua yet, but I seem to be big in downtown Latvia....
