Regardless of what you will trade, study very carefully the following books in the following order:
1. Secrets for Profiting in Bull & Bear Markets - Stan Weinstein 2. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator - Edwin Le Fevre 3. How I made 2 million in the Stockmarket - Nicolas Darvas 4. Trading in the Zone - Ari Kiev
Write up your own trading plan based on what you will learn. Apply your rules consistently to the market, when suitable opportunities arise. You will be miles ahead of the majority.
Oh and stay away from all spruikers and seminar sellers, regardless of who they claim to be. They all suck.
