There are seven things you should look out for when deciding whether or not you should purchase a particular Forex Course:
1. Gives you a deep understanding of the Forex Market
Too often many courses will just give you a superficial overview of how the Forex market works. What you need especially for a Beginner or a Novice is a deep understanding of how the Forex Market works and why.
2. It is not a temporary Quick-fix solution
Many times courses will promise the world within a short amount of time. Majority of the time a short-term gain leads to long-term pain. What you want instead is something that gives you short-term pain for long-term gain.
3. Has structured, relevant content
The content inside the course must be structured properly so that you can slowly absorb the information and process it.
4. Teaches you how to think independently
Instead of a course telling you that this indicator or system is the best it is important for a course to teach you how to think independently. Majority of other traders use the same indicators and systems and this is why they often get poor results.
5. Gives you specialized knowledge
Too often many courses are made up of simple knowledge that can be easily gathered from the internet. Courses that give you specialized knowledge that cannot be gathered anywhere else except from the teacher's own unique experiences offer greater value.
6. Doesn't try to sell you the holy grail of all indicators
Some courses promote a particular indicator as the one and only indicator that you need to trade. Understanding how the indicator works and questioning whether it is actually optimal to use in your trading is more important.
7. Doesn't promise you unrealistic trading profit
Sometimes courses will say that you can earn large sums of money in a short amount of time. Instead you should focus on the actual course content and how it can benefit you in the long-term.
