Recently ET's resident therapist, Dr. Arthur Deco, offered here to mentor pro bono: http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=214350 You can't get any cheaper than free. Emboldened by the abject failure of this errant stupidity, The Amazing Rande solicited paid coun-sell-ing here: http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=214607 Guess ET doesn't want to pay either. I think that the problem is this: ET doesn't know that it HAS a problem. So I'll make it simple for you. With multiple choice testing. To wit (or not): Why do you trade? (a) Because I want to be stinking filthy rich before the close on Friday (b) To make the overdue payment on the recently-adjusted interest on the ARM mortgage on my luxury condo (c) To pay back my mom on the loan she made me to start trading (d) to impress the friends I know nothing about on ET (e) all of the above.
