A. Chill Woods says:

In my mind, I'm already at 4, but in reality I'm vacillating between 2 & 3. Thanks for all of your sharing. I like the simplicity of your teaching style and it came along right when I was looking for some new advice.

Rico a says:

I when backwards from 2 to 1 and back to 2

Rebecca Sullivan says:

Hello Marcus. I am new to all of this. I have watched so many of your videos and downloaded the Thinkorswim Paper Trading simulator. But am confused about why the RSI, Stochastics and MACS Indicator results look different on Thinkorswim than the results on Yahoo finances. It also looks like when I try to buy on Thinkorswim there are a lot more selections to make than just target limit and stop loss and GTC. So I’m a bit overwhelmed. But I’m not giving up. Thank you for your encouragement, Marcus.

Michael Lysov says:

Thank you Markus! Good explaining and clear structure as usual. I'm between 2 and 3 now, but it feels that I need a push … (mentor ?)

Randy Johnson says:

Stage 3……I am getting there….thanks Markus!

I. Griffin says:

Hello, I feel like I'm in stage 1. Perhaps stage 2. I still have a little more capital to use for day trading but haven't limited my losses and haven't been able to consistently make a little money.

John Bennett says:

I just starting to learn!

danny says:

Stage 3, but I'm 100% into preserving my capital and I bypassed 1 & 2… I had a little background on Banking and Finance which has been helpful. Lastly, I am super patient but not patient enough for long term investing so I go the trading route, with less emphasis on maximising each trade, but rather preservation of capital and I'm happy in that zone.

Rock Wright says:

Hi Markus, good advice as always! I am definitely in stage 2 and 3 after learning my lesson which is take profit while it's there.
