Ok here is the situation. I know you all heard it before but I feel everyone that posts this question has a different situation so there is no "answer" to everyones question. I am trying to learn how to day trade since I don't have a lot of faith in my future earnings as a casino dealer. I have some good days, and some bad days but I am pretty much just treading water with my account now. I believe my main problem is I have no foundation on the abc's of trading. I know how charting works and I know how to enter and exit my trades off of my moving average system. I know there is a lot more to trading then just that. I have really no idea on how the market makers systems work. No clue on tape reading so pretty much I am just a chart trader that just trades in the direction of the trend and waits for a pull back then buys the break out. So my question is.... Do you feel that the teachings that I will be taught at Bright Trading or the new HLV office in Las Vegas worth it seeing how a lot of people are getting worried about the new hybrid system? Do you feel most of there strategies will pretty much be useless down the road? What I am after most is just learning and not really the buying power of a prop firm but there just don't seem to be any "quality" information about the business any other place. Some please advise me Thanks to all that respond. Just so everyone knows... I will not quit my job so I'll be trading and working full time. So making money isn't a issue at this point.
