Obviously, my name was meant to make fun of the "Gurus". Yes, I've had a guru tell me he lost $38,000 over a year while having people spending thousands of dollars and hours on him. If they only knew the truth. I will agree that maybe 1/100 will be good, but ONLY ones that show P/L and prove they make money should be followed. the rest are salespersons. i even had a guru tell me he was a horrible trader but others should be able to use his system. huh? Most gurus are good speakers, able to make trading be easy to explain ("see, yesterday, you should have done this and this"). Even a monkey can explain things in hindsight. It's funny when gurus insult other gurus. Why will gurus kill your trading? They will make you think that trading is a pretty closed universe (eg. moving averages explain trend) and they don't admit about being clueless for long periods of time. If gurus are giving you one tool for your toolbelt, please make sure they made money with it over the long term. When gurus use clever metaphors, be careful. Eg. Trading is like flying a plane or whatever. They write books. I agree knowledge is power and education is important. My point is I think you can get what you need for free, and not pay money for this information. I might not have the answer, but I think avoiding gurus is important. Do you really think gurus put up a website and say "I want to help people for FREE." No, they want to monetize. Maybe free at first, like crack. I just want to save ONE person.
