Question #4. What would you most like to learn about related to trading?

• Trading Psychology
• How the hell do I make money?
• Overnight Trading-Options Strategies.
• Safe consistent income generation. I am semi-retired overseas and mostly work on cash flowing (inside tax advantaged IRAs) my stock and ETF holdings with covered calls. I also do some cash secured puts to earn and possibly accumulate new positions at a prices I like. I have not done any serious study on best timing methods for the sales. Should you simply sell ATM and walk away for the week? Is it better to sell options in blocks as the market moves to perhaps earn a bit more? For me, the best plan keeps it simple and as mechanical as possible.
• In a large amount of information that I gained from r.2009 telling me nothing is missing !?
• How to trade ES (E-mini), NQ, GC, ZB/ZN, and what are the characters of each


Question #5. Additional Comments/Questions/Suggestions?

• Mini-Market tradings.
