thetulley started following Las Vegas-Forex Day Trading/Scalping Education and Mentors
Yea, thats actually what I meant, my bad...I thought that is what a mentor is, which it kinda is, depending on what definition you are looking at......anyways...professional trader. Someone who has successful experience in trading. How about some recommendations for books, educational kits sold online, anything??? Lets get this thread going!
I have never traded before but am very interested in learning. I have read a couple books, mostly about stocks and options. However, I am leaning more towards Forex due to the ability to trade with less capital which is great for beginners. Also, I enjoy to read the charts and use indicators more than fundamental analysis but understand that it is an important part of trading as well. I would like to use technical analysis over fundamentals, but of course, would include fundamentals as part of my trading practices if recommended necessary. I am looking for some recommendations to some GREAT educational resources besides the forums; such as books, courses, and mentors. I would absolutely love to find a local mentor to take me under their wing and turn me out to be a great trader. If not, it would be just as great to meet some people like me in Las Vegas who are interested in trading the markets! Please give me your very best recommendations. I am looking for resources on general education, how to trade, strategies, and software use. Even some recommendations on the best software and brokerages to start out with that have the lowest costs would be helpful. I am especially looking for a mentor or like minded people locally that would enjoy sharing their knowledge! Even if you are not from Las Vegas we could use the Team Viewer software to share Desktop screens to get the over-the-shoulder approach I am looking for. Thank you for any help! I am looking forward to the responses to my post! By the way, I am currently an apprentice for the Plumbers&Pipefitters Union in Las Vegas so I am used to being a student and will do what it takes to learn. It is a five year apprenticeship and I am getting ready to journey out so I would love to spend my time as an apprentice in the Forex Market. I will be very dedicated. Thanks!
