Forex Trading
 
I'm interested in learning to trade in the Forex Market. I would like to get with a Prop firm (in Atlanta) to learn from professionals who have proven strategies. I have already started to read on the industry.

What is the best way to find mentors, profitable firms, that are willing to properly train a neo trader?

Zen,
I generally agree with you, but it is possible to find an excellent mentor,especially nowadays using the internet.

Believe it or not, there are reputable people who are excellent traders that are willing to help newbies. Some even with a small fee.

Hi ctrade,

Here's a site where you might get some valuable training in forex. It's on the NFA site. Good luck.

Sure, if you crossed out everything else you need in life, including the fee you spend to find the right one.

If you have to bust your butt on two or more jobs to make a living, how much time you can spend to search the net day in day out?

And if your work leaves you free on odd times, do you think there's a library with free Internet access still open in your area?

Unless you can ask the real Merlin, not the one from this forum, how many false "excellent" mentor you meet before you find the true one? Don't you need benjamins along the way?

And only if your lucky star is as bright and as sure as the sun, you won't have any unexpected along your journey. Otherwise there's always something that takes some benjamins out of your pockets. Leaving you with less than you need to pursue your dream.

So I stand corrected, you need tons of benjamins to find mentors, profitable firms, whose willing to properly train a neo trader. Cos you'll find a lot of so-called and self-proclaim mentors and profitable firms whom are more interested in suck your bank account dry along the way. Not to mention any other need you have to fullfil in between.
