Just new to the forum and looking for some opinions on formal trading education.
Now doing my home work i can only find one company in the whole of australia that has their training endorsed by the various government bodies, The Sharemarket College.
Now these guys want 10k basically for a 12 month training package and a lifetime of support, software upgardes etc etc
At first i though **** me thats alot so i went home and had a think about it. I am in the IT industry and in this industry we pay thousands of dollars for courses that are only a couple of weeks long, so for a skill and education that you will have for the rest of your life i am thinking its not a bad option?
Now i know that alot of you will say, dont do it keep your money and learn yourself from books etc and i could use that money for trading capitol. But as this is a registered course i can claim %100 of the training on tax as well.
Anyway i just want to share my current thoughts on the matter as i havent made any decisions yet, oh and on the book thing i have asked around and researched that and the problem is "what boook is the right one?" they are mostly all opinions or strategies that have worked for people in a totally different situation to the reader. Good for ideas and further education i agree but hardly a mentor?
