Hi Lucie,

I would advise people to get professional training if they can,before they enter live markets.Demo is fine to test different strategies.One way to prepare you for live markets is to work with a small amount of cash in your demo,say 5000 or less,this way you will be more careful with how your trading and you will feel a bit of pressure to protect it.



Be lucky!


Where one gets professional trading that one can trust? I almost bought the LearnHowToTrade 3 days course for $5k but after investigating a bit more it seems like I was going to waste my money there.
I asked help at another forum and people almost threw rocks at me saying that I can learn everything by myself and for free.

I, in the other hand, do very much believe in the power of education, when delivered by real professionals. So... where can I learn?

You could look at Lex van dam,Anton kreil,Peter brown,Gary norden that's just a few I would think about looking at.

You can try Jarratt Davies professional training program. It is the same program that all his junior traders have to take. The best part of it is free.

JD has been ranked by Barclays Hedge as the 2nd top currency trader for 6 consecutive years by trading performance. They are trading results that are externally verified and not claims as made often by some of the forex marketeers.

Awesome, thanks for helping me out! I will look him up :-)
I wish there was a fully acredited 'Trading University' you could just join and become then a trader. A real undergrad program. Would totally do it :)

According to me, Demo just gives you the vision of things, but cannot learn you - it's just not enough, it's just not real!!!
When you risk real money, then you'll get the real feel!

Very good point of reference. Lex van Dam is quite famous and a great source for learning the trading specifics! Good luck in finding your role models and mentors!

Actually I think there are Universities that run different courses on finance and investment. This could help you get the good grip of the fundamentals. Check in your local area. I would also add that you can look for the global technical analysis associations and join their certificate programs. Such education is for sure unbiased 😄

There is a good course on Corporate Finance and Valuation ran by Aswath Damodaran its more related to stocks but will give you some valuable insight.
