well, let me put it to you this way. If I told you I was a former trader and wanted to learn poker, what would you tell me? If I told you there was a course I could take for 10k which promises to help me play what would you say?
Quote from DuyLe:
I'm a former poker player. After the DOJ cracked down on pokerstars and fulltilt, I'm out of a job. I want to pursue a career in trading for obvious reasons... similar skills set etc... When I was playing poker, I was using 3 monitors running 24 tables of 6 max no limit poker @ 6-,000 -8,000 hands a day. I can intake a lot of information at once, recognize patterns easily, and am very analytical.
Any suggestions on what type of trading I should do? Where I should build a foundation? Coaching? Courses? Etc? I noticed that some established prop firms have training courses but they run from 1k to 10k depending on packages.
There is so much information out there and it seems like 90% of shady? I would really appreciate it if someone could provide me with any type of guidance.
My guess is, you would tell me to start small and see if I am cut out for it.
Sounds like you have fear of that which you don't understand. Those guys you see on CNBC wearing suits and ties are nothing more than pit bosses. They don't make their money trading. As a matter of fact, almost nobody you ever heard of (with the exception of Warren Buffet) ever made a living trading.
Until you've traded on your own for a while you don't even know enough to ask an intelligent question.
Imagine me coming to you for advice and asking, "Does a straight beat a flush?"
