Wow, where does opinions come from? If you giving any advise to someone else, you should do that from your extensive experience. Why to use mentor? The answer is very simple – to speed up educational process. Take a lot of time to learn trading profession and you will do that throughout the rest of your trader profession. Mentor will show you the road without pain and without suffering unnecessary losses. After being trader for 12 years I can tell you – get professional help instead complain about scammers. I had spent large sum of money for my education, taking courses with very well know traders like Bill Williams, Steven Nison, or Duane Archer. It will help you not only with technical knowledge, but with the most important trading aspect – mental state of your mind. You can’t help you self you need professional help.
Internet is full of information about trading, Forex market opinions but here is the problem – most of that info are totally wrong because just like you guys mention – scammers. Free do not mean good – be careful what you read and where you read.
Good luck traders in the new carrier.
