Okay, a few weeks ago I requested information about the books on making money trading. I'm getting the books from the library. In the mean time, an acquaintance of mine mentioned going to a trading class held in GA, USA a few years ago. (Not sure if I can mention the class or the name of the instructor as I don't want to spam). I have not been able to get a hold of this guy since he attended the course, some time in 2008. But, I'm curious, how would you evaluate an instructor or the course? Per the website for this course, they'll provide the software that will teach me to spot the trends (all I'd need is a charting program) This program claims to..."It was decided to abandon all the traditional trading indicators and adopt something entirely new, the statistical measurement of price movement." better yet, what kind of questions would you ask if you were me? The price is about 1K with lifetime e-mail support. While it's a bit steep, I imagine that I can easily loose the money making a bad trade and hopefully will just as easily get it back if the course will teach me the right strategies.
