Thinking back to when you were in the early stages of your trading days, what was your most influential knowledge source? Ive read various books on technical analysis and have a reasonable working knowledge of most of the key things. I could continue buying book after book and reading about how indicator after indicator in constructed, how the textbook says it should be implemented but im not convinced this is the best way. Obviously personal experience is an excellent way to learn by actually trading which I do, but I am looking for ways to speed up the learning process. This is pretty badly worded, its a hard question to phrase I think. Cliffs: What is the main thing that you would identify that got you to where you are today in terms of your working knowledge of trading?
