Imagine when you were back in primary school. How difficult it would've been to learn to read, write, or spell without a teacher. Most things that you learn in life, the knowledge stems from someone else before you. Learning to trade is no different, the difficulties you can bypass by finding the right trading mentor for you is truly invaluable!
