Actually the point you just made is spot on.
The biggest issue for beginners is they just don’t know what they need to learn and what they do not.
You can go down avenues that really just aren’t worth it because you were unlucky to be introduced to that concept before other more important things.
I always suggest a few months general reading about markets and trading before going granular.
I once knew someone who started off with a course costing 1000 quid or more learning about Elliot Wave.
If he had some one more experienced to guide him at the time maybe he would have not pursued that option.
In relation to the @eclipz3 course I think it is unfair to be labelled as BS without proper investigation.
There is one point I am intrigued about though. His following the smart money approach is a good one but is this done with proprietary software or is it data readily available?
It’s alot easier to follow smart money in the stock market than in the forex market - so I believe.
Is what he looks at market depth or level 2? Great approaches but again not available in forex unless your trading on the interbank market.
The best I can get for smart money is the COT.
It would be great for a brief outline of what his course is looking at - without giving the whole game away of course!
