I believe that most new traders don't know where to start. They keep looking for the Holy Grail. You already know it but I'll say it again; it doesn't exist.


I relate learning to trade to building a house (I know diddly squat about building a house by the way). But I do know that you don't put the roof on before you put the walls up, and you don't put the walls up until you've built a foundation. The same goes for trading. You MUST first build the foundation. You won't be successful if you don't.

If you want to learn how to trade Commodities, Stocks, or Forex it is not as simple as some people want you to believe. Some are selling trading "systems" but systems don't work. What works is that you must be willing to invest the time and effort to learn the basics.


It helps if you have a great Mentor that you like and trust. I never had one when I first started and it was frustrating and cost me a lot of time and money.

I firmly believe that I can teach you how to trade but it's a two-way street. You must have the desire and patience to learn. It's been said, "That when the student is ready, the teacher appears." The question is, are you ready because the teacher is here?

You are probably reading this because you are looking to learn to trade or looking to improve your bottom line if you are currently trading. There is one thing that I am certain about; my courses will help you. If they don't please let me know and I will refund your money.

I want you to think about something for a minute. How many successful traders, Doctors, teachers, attorneys, or any other profession do you know that started at the top? None, right?


It always baffles me that some people think that a successful trader can start at the top. Well, they can't. It's a process where you first learn the basics, build a foundation, and then advance up the ladder of success from there. That's what I did and that's what I suggest that all my students do; start with the basics first.

You might want to do a Google search for me, David Duty, or my company, Common Sense Commodities. If you do, you will not find a single negative comment over the 25 years I've been teaching. To me, that means a lot.
