Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. – Charles R. Swindoll –
Is it worth it to do the Tim Sykes Challenge is the most frequently asked question I get. The truthful answer to that question is I don’t know. It was worth it for me. Heck Tim even flew me out to trade with him on his dime which you can read here. However, the truth of the matter is I don’t know You. So I can’t tell You what value something will have for You if I don’t know how You are going to handle the good the bad and the ugly along the way.
In essence what’s good for me doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good for you.
With that said, if you are truly looking to start trading stocks, either as a day trader or swing trader, you need to educate yourself first. That is why I put together this free stock market training resource list which should help you to learn about the various tools, resources and options that are out there. All of them are free or on a free trial basis and should be used as a way to EDUCATE before making ANY financial decision.
Remember 90% of traders lose money so it’s best to study and learn as much as you can before spending your harder earned money… or worse losing it.
I suggest bookmarking this page and refreshing it frequently as I will be adding relevant content to it as I come across more free stock market training resources.
