I've been toying with getting serious about learning to play the stock market for many years now finally at the age of 39 I am going to do something about it. I went to a free seminar by Marcus de Maria last night, promoting his two day course.
I was impressed by some of his articles beforehand though have to say I was a little put off by his agressive sales tactics. Has anyone had any experience of his course? I'd be gratfeul of any feedback. I'd be grateful of any other recommended beginners courses which I can look into.
I'm based in London. You can learn everything you need for free on the net. May 21, , Originally Posted by TigerT. Exactly what I was gonna say.

You keep ending up at the Investment Mastery site or associated sites. I have been on 2 x Day taster sessions. The day is very well put together, lots of enthusiasm and decent guest speakers. Lets say that the sales technique has improved!!
The courses are aimed at the novice investor. It is an 8hr sales pitch. It is not cheap What they offer are the 'keys to the Kingdom' At the end of the day they run a business selling courses - The keys to the kingdom are never attainable These kind of courses sell dreams.
They spend a huge amount of time on the power of compounding This is no reflection of the company, I am sure they generally want to help people invest. But as in all of these courses, it comes at a huge price. If you need the help and guidance of traders, and are prepared to spend some money to get that help, then a course such as this could be for you.
Marcus is a nice guy and the day is far from boring. But its an intense sales pitch, keep that in mind As I say, I have been on the taster day that costs too You will learn very little, well nothing that is not on the net or in a book!!
Then the strategies might be for you Nov 5, , 2: There are very few mentors and courses that are worth paying for,most of what you need to learn is available on the web and on this site,the rest is in your mind.

There are no trading related testimonials, they are all related to motivational speaking, wealth creation, NLP, the usual nonsense.
On another website he came out with this gem. No-one, and I mean no-one, cares as more about your money than you!
Of course we all know how easy that is in just a few minutes a day. Nov 5, , 6: After going to the 'taster' - I tried to find anyone apart from those at investment mastery to give a testimonial about the strategies. I can't find anyone Who spend 3 minutes on their portfolio.. All these companies do is keep taking your money, course after course, as well as monthly fees for stock tips just tips - and when you have nothing left and you can't commit to the terms of the money back guarantee they have one!
Which has so many conditions it's unreal.. That is the outer. I would also say, my feelings on what I saw, that there are people planted on the taster course.. They do the whole 'only 5 courses at this bargain price' 3 people run up to hand over the cash Come on' - funnily I watched people sign up and then asked if the price still stood Outside the magic Of course it was A very slick sales operation Selling you a dream over 8 or 9 hours..
