YTC Intro to TA – Unfinished Video Series

In 2012 I commenced a YouTube video series – YTC Introduction to Technical Analysis.

For various reasons, this series was unfinished. Perhaps it will be completed one day in the future. Perhaps not.

The one benefit that this series gave me was a realisation that the work I can best offer the trading community comes in exploration of advanced topics. I have no passion for creation of “basic” trading education. I love taking you into the unknown and more difficult areas of trading knowledge and skill.

There is a TON of basic information already available. Much of it poor. But some of it good. Adding to the huge volume of basic TA material was simply poor use of my time and poor service to you.

I’d rather just direct newbies to the good material that already exists, and then have them come back here when they need to move to higher levels of expertise.

The series was cancelled for cost vs benefit reasons. And I removed the existing videos from public display on YouTube.

Well… I’ve had a few requests for the series to be available on my site, even though it would not be completed.

So here it is… (**27/1/2016 Update – The series has been made public again on YouTube due to a number of requests!)
