No No.. there is no question that Anton is selling his own institute in certain videos
but in this presentation he is not
For anton to come to a university of college and do something like this, is like getting money for babysitting.
it would be like me (As and I.T. Engineer) being asked by TAFE NSW to go to different TAFE Locations and to go the classes that are holding computer studies courses and talk about the I.T. industry... hehe
and if i was offered say $300k to talk for an hour or so
yeah, of course i'd take it
it's easy money
Same here, Anton is getting paid top money, because of who he is, to basically walk in , wipe noses of students and basically not give two shits as to what the uni thinks but instead to totally discredit the course itself.
as for the respect that Anton gets
well... from what i have seen and read and heard in forums
i have concluded the following
I personally respect the level of progress that he has made and where he is in life
Beyond what i think, there are those that also respect him, Mainly for his career at Goldman Sachs.
Then there are those that say he is a scammer, then there are those that say "He's a spoiled little rich kid and have no respect for him" and there are those that say he can't actually trade
NO my thoughts on this are :
i highly doubt that he cannot trade, i base this on the fact that Lex Van Damne decided to do a joint venture with him,
now, if Anton couldn't trade why would lex even look at him.
secondly, why would Goldman hire Anton if he couldn't do shit.
i thinks it's highly unlikely that Anton cannot trade.
did he start from humble beginnings or is he a spoiled rich kid ? I don't know, but i don't think it matters.
either way , rich kid or not, he rose to where he is on hiis own (At least part of the way)
is he a scammer, NO, he doesn't need to be
Anton is not like Greg Secker for example
if his institute stop functioning today, Anton would still be ok,
Greg on the hand wouldn't be in a good place
and besides, THIS IS THE FINANCE INDUSTRY, when are people going to wake up and understand that THOSE WHO SUCCEED HAVE SCAMMED TO SOME DEGREE
it's the nature of the industry
it's like going into the jungle and being a deer and saying that the lion is a Murderer
well. WHAT DID YOU EXPECT ?
i think if you look at Anton's video's
you can see where he is pushing his institute
you can see at other times when he really doesn't give a shit, these are the videos you want to focus on
Now.. the Million Dollar Trader thing is a marketing thing to a point
but, I FEEL, IT GIVES A GOOD REALIIZATION TO NEWBIES OF WHAT THEY CAN EXPECT IN TRADING
based on what i've been through in my 7 odd years,
i would say (Even though the type of trading they did was with different instruments) the concept is the same,
i think it's pretty close to what a beginner could consider eventual reality
i think it's a good series and a lot can be learned
Anton is not the only one that i think is good
but, He is definitely one of the better ones
