Ask Colin

Do you agree with trying to learn some  form of short term trading?

In the detailed question, was a reference to wanting to escape stress in his job.

You said you wanted to be less stressed, well let me tell you that short term trading is very stressful.


That aside, it will take you some time – a few years – to learn the skills.


If you want to take it further I suggest you read The New Trading for a Living by my good friend Dr Alexander Elder. Get it on Amazon or through his website (


I think he is the best teacher of trading in the world and have worked with him on Traders Camps.
