I'm interested in how most people are educated or educate themselves with regards to trading. Why and why not?
I basically read books, books, books, forums, online free sites and talk to people I know. I question what I hear and read and pick systems piece by piece to understand them. I don't believe in courses for beginners and would only take a course to formally understand more complex trading such as warrants, foreign exchange etc. (maybe oneday I'll consult moneytree - he seems to have it sorted)
I feel beginners should read about the different types of investing and trading to determine what would suit them rather than just take a course.
Maybe some of the more experienced people could share their thoughts here too.
