  4. I am a day trader, I'm also one who learns from everything new. Will your day trading course help with Futures? I'm going to sign if I can learn something new. I trade on each new candle more sop than the trend.

  5. Thanks. I am trying to begin meaningful trading. My current job pays well but I want to transition into trading to gain some freedom and independence. Is it realistic to work on trading only two out of three weeks?
    I have over a million in retirement funds but want to generate 60-70 percent returns a year to eventually 5 X my accounts. Would you use options or momentum trading or some combination?
