SpockTradez’s complete lesson plan for new Swing Traders

I figured I would assemble my posts in a more digestible order for those who have stumbled onto this blog. Think of this as a quick Table of Contents to jump to the education articles and filter out all the weekly picks and market updates. I’ll continue to update this as I add more lesson posts. As always, this is for educational purposes only and is not financial advice. I’m not in any way shape or form a financial advisor, I’m just a regular Vulcan like you who picked up a thing or two along my intergalactic travels and want to share that info with you.
