Thanks for the links, they look really interesting. I did go through Online Trading Academy. I was new to trading, so I was glad to have the 7 days and others to talk with. I have done most of their courses and am in their XLT (advanced training) now. It is a lot of money, but traders can loose so much more with losing trades. I think it was worth the $ for me, but I still have a lot to learn. They teach the trading aspect well, especially if you go back and have different teachers. I think they do not cover the psychology of trading well enough at all. They just started a new course on this, which I am sure is a start. I just started offering coaching to traders to work on the discipline (I am a business coach in a past life) since it is the discipline and psychology I find that I am struggling with now. I agree with a post above, that it seems no matter where you are trained it just takes time to learn. You have to preserve your capitol so you don't run out while you are learning!
