If You Think Trading Education is Expensive, Try Ignorance:
Most people look at the price tag on a various trading programs and gasp: Woah, $5,000! No way can I afford that! When the reality is that not joining, learning, and applying the education offered will actually cost you much more in the long run. Not only in opportunity, but in trading losses if you decide to take on Wall Street on your own. I’m not saying that every service out there is legitimate because there are certainly some sketchy ones out there, but if you do your own research and find a good fit, it can make all the difference between trading success and failure.
The internet also provides a ton of free information, and with enough research and dedication, you can probably teach yourself most of the concepts being taught within these programs. But that can take years to figure out. Not to mention those all too familiar painful and expensive lessons along the way (trading losses due to inexperience and lack of knowledge). Those who find a trader, or a group of traders, who are following the proper process and achieving market success already typically end up achieving success themselves. That happens because they have mentors to emulate. A proven path to follow. Expert guidance and wisdom from individuals who have full-time experience in the market. So go ahead and side-step your education and opportunity at financial freedom if you’d like. Or find a high-quality program, follow a mentor, and “figure it out” ten times quicker and with less mistakes than you ever could on your own. It’s your choice.
