If you are performing well in the stock market then you are part of a small number. If you are one of the larger number who aren’t doing so well or you would like to improve you results, then I think you should look at technical analysis and perhaps do a technical analysis course.
These days there are lots of technical analysis courses available to you and you need to decide which is the right one for you. There are a few things that you need to consider. The first is what the course covers, the second is what the course costs and the final thing is how it will be delivered.
Do you have the time commitment to do the course? If yes, then do to have to commitment to follow it through afterwards. There is no point in doing a technical analysis course and then not implement the techniques. You will be surprised with how many people do that.
A lot of people think that doing any course is a good idea. This is not so and you need to think about what you are going to get out of it and more importantly, how much you will get out relative to the cost.
How much do you think you will earn after the course? I don’t know the figure that you just thought of but you will probably earn less than that. This is not to say that you shouldn’t do a technical analysis course, you just need to be realistic. Work out how much extra you think you would make in a year and compare that to the course price.
A classroom based technical analysis course will be expensive. There is no getting away from that. A cheaper way of doing it would be to find a book or even a DVD about it. That should give you the basics.
If you decide that doing a course is right for you then be prepared to put the work in. All the best traders do so why should you be any different. If you put the work in then you should see some results.
