I run occasional training courses in basic Technical Analysis, a few on the site have attended and hopefully both enjoyed and learned from the experience.
My intentions are simple, I enjoy teaching and as a full-time trader it gives me an avenue through which to meet other people and to have the satisfaction of , hopefully, helping them with their trading. Trading itself is essentially a boring business. I have been some form of instructor or other for the past 22 years, so it is kind of engraved in the soul!
In the financial 'world' I don't agree with the 'buy my system and make a million' type courses - as you say if they were that good, then they would be doing it themselves and flying you for free to one of their Bermudan Islands for a chat!
What I do believe is that people have to find a style of trading that suits their personality, time/life constraints and which provides enjoyment, interest and a challenge as well as - hopefully - some profit. To this end I try to offer a basic set of tools (in this case basic Technical Analysis) from which they can continue to develop their own trading 'persona', whether it be as an agressive 'gunslinger' scalping the markets or a more sedate end of day longer term approach.
I think the others that frequent this site have a similar approach, they are offering to demonstrate a technique/ methodology or how to use a specific tool, at the end of the day the individuals that attend the various courses may come away from them either delighted that they have found something that 'fits' or at the very least with a better knowledge of something that they may or may not be able to include in their own style.
