For many years I have wanted to start investing but education is holding me back. There is soooo much information available that it's difficult to sift the chaff from the grain and I get bogged down with a brain overload. I could do a course like ********* ****** which has components on all these areas but for $11,000 before you even place a trade, it seems incredibly steep, especially with no iron clad promise of success. I'd get a better warranty on a new kettle for only $50. So, my question requires a lot of thought from those who will answer.
If you were to design a course educating rank newbies in shares, commodities, options, emini's and forex, where would you begin and how would you build on that information-references, websites, books etc. Remember you learn addition and subtraction before vectors and matrices so it's a slow build of information, not sink or swim.
I'm prepared put in the effort and do the research and reading but I don't want to waste time on spam, fads and charletans trying to scam other's hard earned money.
Cheers for the time and patience any posters will put into answering this question.
