Here's a thing, trading starts as a 50/50 bet, products go up or down. So how do humans lose so much money on essentially throwing heads or harps? If you set out to lose would you be successful? If you have a friend who loses on the markets ask to trade with them. When they bet on the Euro going up, you bet on the Euro going down. You make the money they lose!
The reality is, trading courses are not classes about economics they are classes about human behavior, markets and some economics.
I can analyse the market for you but can you cut your losses quickly and run you profits. If you can do that and are right 50% of the time your'e a trader!
It is not the markets that are hard, it is shifting embedded human tendencies that is.
