Does anyone know of any legitimate courses on technical analysis, specifically charting, preferably one where the 'guru' doesn't stand at the front of the room and ask silly questions like "Who wants to make some serious money?" or whips everyone in the room into a frenzy of gullibility.
I have looked at most of the snake oil merchants who claim to be able to teach this and that, but I have a pretty sharp bull**** detector and have managed to keep my money away from them.
I've been reading and learning for a few years. I started with Share Investing for Dummies, CFD's, Making money from CFD's, The Warren Buffet Way, Turtle Traders and am half way through Reminiscences of a Stock Operator before I start Market Wizards, plus various magazines and newspapers.
I'm also interested to know whether it's worth buying a charting program like metastock or just using power etrade through my broker. Is power etrade a good one or are there better?
So many questions that books won't answer.
