I'm a very busy person (full-time job, family, etc) and want to invest over $50k of extra cash. There are so many ways that I can learn, but which ones will bear fruit? I am willing to pay money to learn to make money or have access to systems that help make money.
Here are the ideas that I have considered:
- Read books
- Watch videos
- Read blogs
- Paper trades
- Hire a coach
- Hire a financial planner
- Buy and learn analytical software (AmiBroker, OptionVue, etc)
Also, a list of topics I have considered:
- Emotion management
- Designing a personalized system (ie logging trades, having exit strategies, etc)
- Technical Analysis
- Fundamental Analysis
- Precious Metals (other commodities)
I'm beginning to realize that it may be best to just pick a few of these and go. There are a million good opportunities/day that are lost. I may just need one good opportunity per a year. Also, I'm a really slow reader so books tend to take much more time for me (unless it's an audio book).
Where have people here had the most success?
