No matter how many times you read this course you will not learn
how to be a successful trader: you must practice trading to learn how to be a
successful trader. It is not enough to know everything in our courses; you must
learn how to apply the strategies we teach in your own trading. You will soon
notice that although we teach you strategies to use we hope that you will take
our strategies and hone them into your own unique trading style. You will begin
doing this when you start mock trading. Good luck investing and do not forget
that you can always contact us with any questions you may have. Please read the
entire course, including the forums of questions and answers, before calling or
e-mailing. People tend to ask the same questions as they learn this business.
You will probably find your question answered in the forums.
The first time reading the course should give you an
overview of what you will be practicing in your mock trading. You will probably

After you have read through the Jump Start Seminar you should look at this
week’s update (paying students only) and begin your own mock trading. This is
where you will develop the experience you need to form your own trading style
and acquire the confidence you need to begin investing real money. Do not start
off investing real money. Everyone makes beginner’s mistakes. Learn from these
mistakes without financial repercussions.
Remember, mock trading is what this course is about. We
are teaching you how to trade commodities with some very powerful yet easy to
use technical tools. The only true way to learn is to practice. So let us get
you started reading the course and start teaching you how to start your own
commodity investing business. Good luck!
