Real Time Trading Seminar
"In philosophy the wise learn from Confucius,
In trading the wise learn from Carl Futia"

If you are like most people you have probably played competitive games and sports at some level. You may enjoy playing bridge or poker or chess with your friends. Golf and tennis are games that are popular among more active people. When you were younger you may have participated in football, baseball, basketball, or volleyball.
Now let me ask you a question. Did you ever take private lessons or read books in the hopes that they would improve your game?
Did they in fact improve your game significantly?
Speaking for myself, I can say that I learned some technical points from the books I read and the coaching I received. But as a young football player the success I had came mostly from my natural abilities which I developed further during scrimmages and games. Only rarely did things I learned from the coaches or books make a difference.
You learn to play the game well only by playing against live competition!
Most people I talk to about this say the same thing. Book learning and coaching can improve your results. But they won't make the difference between an average and a great player. Only talent and experience in live competition can do that.
And you have to be a great player to make money in the game of speculation.
Why? Speculation is the most competitive game on the planet. Anyone can play - all you need is an internet connection and a few hundred dollars - so the talent pool is very deep. And the monetary prizes are big. So speculation attracts the best financial minds as well as the shrewdest, street-smart operators you can find anywhere.
As a speculator you will be competing against the best of the best.
The only way to develop your skills is to plunge into the trading arena and start grappling with the market on a daily basis. Only by competing against the best on a daily basis can you hope to improve your game enough to beat them!
You don't need to risk real money until you have achieved a reasonable skill level. But you do need to be present with the market as it evolves. You have to learn how to listen for the market's message. You have to learn how to pick up the disparate strands of market information and weave from them a coherent tapestry of the market's likely movements.
These are things I'll be teaching you when you join my seminar.
Book learning and weekend seminars won't help you.
Only real time experience counts!
