My Least Favorite Email to Receive
Many of you will be surprised by the image I'm about to post. You probably expect to see a random newbie question or some troll mocking me for a recent loss. Instead, here is the email that makes me cringe every time it hits my inbox:
Read it closely- the details are what upset me so much. I can't stand seeing people sign up for "TimAlerts." This is not a knock against Tim Sykes, I'm a big fan of his "Pennystocking Silver" and "TimChallenge" programs. The reason I get so annoyed by people signing up for "TimAlerts" is because it's exactly what it sounds like, a trade alerts service only! If you review my posts for beginners, I state MULTIPLE times that trying to follow alerts is the wrong way to approach the stock market. You need to educate yourself, not be a blind follower.
If you're going to pay money for a guru, please at least choose a plan where you can learn something. You're not going to make money or learn to be self-sufficient by being a sheep. Choose a plan that has video lessons, webinars, or some kind of educational content. Otherwise, the vast majority of you are just flushing your money down the drain.
