  2. Well...most sites for experienced traders are usually fee-based.

    Also...you said web site but not web site(s)...so I'm going to not name one but instead will name many because there are so many different types of traders with different needs...hopefully one or two of the below sites can be useful in one way or another.

    Further, I'll throw in a few sites I thought merit further clicking around regardless if its free, fee-based, for the experience or for the beginners.

    Note: Some sites below have pop-up ads either when you enter or exit...such I hate and dislike the fact they are copying a method of advertising that was created by porn-sites....

    However, the websites listed below still merits a peek (no pun intended).

    http://www.greatspeculations.com/brett.htm when you get to this website...click on the trader psychology links on the left side...interesting thoughts by him.

    Trader Psychology in my opinion is arguably the most important factor that will determine if you'll succeed or fail in the markets.

    Not one singular website, not a trading system, not charting software, not who you broker with and not the market itself...but YOU.

    I've met in all my years of trading that traders fail because they do not understand how they are interacting with the markets... ignoring stops, ignoring or hesitating when trade signals appear, trading when there's no trade setups, jumping from one strategy to another with real money, unable to identify the specific criteria of their trade setups, panicking after a loss, overtrading, over-confidence, lack of confidence and failure to get a mentor when they continue to lose money (a mentor that's making money).

    Hopefully the above has caught someones attention...enough of the sermon...back to the website(s) :cool:
