Lol Gullanian, I think you've found your guy
No, seriously... I'm not perfect, I've had my days... but I can at least give some tips as to what you need to be looking out for. Having said that, each market is different and trends in different ways, but for the most part the applied methods are still the same. The course I did was for 5 days, 8 hours a day, and cost me $6500... I made my course money back on the last two days of the course as we were doing live trades in the seminar with our instructor (who also happens to be a good friend of mine). Most of the other people made thier money back as well, so essentially we all got it done for free.
The only thing I can really stress to you, is if you start to get emotionally involved with it... just cut your loses and stop. If you start to lose and get all worried about how you are going to recover, you start making mistakes without realising it and it WILL get worse I can guaruntee that.
Also make sure you are constantly checking your hourly high's and low's, and calculating your averages... plus keep an eye on the mean price and floating averages as they will indicate which way the market is trending for that hour.
Also, I suggest checking out a web based program (you have to pay for it, but you can see what it's about for free) called SPI SURFER. It's a prediction software that gives you the daily major levels for the Sydney Stock Exchange, and it's accurate within 1 point.
If you have any direct questions to ask, then as I said, feel free to fire away... I'll help where I can!
