Every skill including trading can be learnt... the question is whether you are prepared to put in the time to read and study (not talking diploma/degree)

Hi @Mashiyamahle and @risimatiobed23 ,

 

The video above is a great first step. OST also offers webinars and face-to-face courses for such. As @RNxBillionaire rightly points out, it's a skill you need to study and practice. This webinar series might also help: https://community.standardbank.co.za/t5/Blog/Introduction-to-ViewPoint/ba-p/431990. However, the most important thing really is getting a better education and understanding of what you're doing when you decide to become a trader.
