What resources do I use?
The resources I use for gathering knowledge on what a certain trading strategy, tool or indicator does are Google and YouTube.
End of article.
Alright, I’ll give a little bit more insight to this than that. I’ve mentioned this before in a previous post: my approach to learning how to trade which is that I watch a video and then come across certain terms, tools, indicators, strategies, etc. and I try to take them in at face value without the interpretation of the author of the video. What do I mean by that?
Whenever a person explains anything it is basically the interpretation of the author that you are taking in. I try to look at the subjects they explain with a naked an eye as can be. Not saying that I always succeed but it becomes a habit and after a while you should be able to get better at this. Be skeptical about everything because usually the author, like me, is trying to sell you something. In most cases they will try to sell you a course, book and so on and in some cases they will sell you on the idea, knowledge, or advice on a certain topic. Like I’m doing right now. Keep in mind that here is always someone selling and always someone buying. Are you buying this?
Basically, I wasn’t lying. I do search on Google and youTube a lot. I have thought about going out and buying books but there are so many out there. I have tried a few only to be disappointed on the ‘wisdom’ that was included. Most likely, my assumption of going to be told a secret strategy to trading was wrong as well, but I found that with most things I could have just done my own research.
So here they are.
The Usual Suspects
When I google the topics I saw in the videos I watched, I tend to come across the same websites. And these are in ‘no particular order’:
To get started on the foundational knowledge of trading these websites are more than enough. Just keep in mind that just because you have been handed a tool doesn’t mean you can start building a house.
