I have been on about a 20 month journey of becoming financially literate and learning about investing and trading. I did my first trades (options – bull put spreads and bear call spreads) using what I learned from a guy named Phil Town and his Rule 1 course, but I stopped when I thought I needed to learn more. Since then, each next step has seemed to present itself as I finished a certain section of learning. The last 5 months have been all about working on my psychology using Van Tharp’s books and his Peak Performers home study course. His course taught be about my trading style and showed me that I needed to be out of the market, so I got out. His book also taught me that my style fits more with the Trend Following style of trading than any of the others, including Value investing/trading. Your Trend Following book presented itself to me a few weeks ago. I’m almost finished with the book, and I’ve been gaining more and more confidence by listening to your podcasts and going through your materials. Right now, my biggest challenge is on the technical aspect of developing a trading system, but from what I’m reading on your website, you seem have the answer to that in your Flagship course. I’ve gone from an overview level and am now getting into the specialized area of how I will go about becoming a successful financial free investor-trader. I’m watching your 55 minute video now as well.
Thanks for the feedback.
