Myths will be busted:

1) Trading is not as complicated as professionals would lead you to believe, in fact it’s pretty easy

2) Trading does not take a lot of time.  You can do it from work or home in less than 15 minutes a day 

3) Trading does not take years to learn, I am going to teach you in only a few courses

No Fundamental or Technical Analysis is used or needed.  This program is based on strategy.  And strategy can be applied to any stock at any time.
