This is okay, as long as there are no personal attacks to anyone.

if you are a newbie, I strongly feel you need a mentor. Earlier before I shared about my mentorship for about 6 mths (intense), 6 mths(monitoring) and it has benefited me a great deal.At the end of the day, my portfolio is making money from 2015 to now. btw, I only started trading from 2015 onwards. Finding a good mentor can be challenging.As a newbie, learning from the best & capable people can give you a good headstart. As you become stable in your trading strategy and make money, you continue to learn from the best.Cheerio

Nope. Nv try. Same as go to school tell u what to do. In the end ask you SL, is your money loss. You learn somethin though, cut fast when its not right. But is your money got cut. Your mentor TP your money instead lol.

Do one-off classes count? Or must be across a period of time?

I always wonder about these coaches...making classes is extra side income for their capital?

Perhaps I should point out the viewpoint of the other side. Mentoring does have its advantages. 1 You are focused. Some people just don't have the discipline to self study. 2 more efficient, you don't need to search high and low for information. Of course at the expense of $$$. 3 experience from a real person. From the internet you don't really know who is real who is fake. But then real person can also be a scam so find a reputable one.

Eg Warren Buffett had Benjamin Graham as Mentor. The turtles had Dennis Richard.

Having said so much, I myself also learn trading by myself without a coach =p

Btw, some mentioned 1-on-1 coaching could cost 10s of thousands or more... Wonder what kind of value such coaching might provide.
