I will start with an analogy. I was part of the trading community at one point, but the way funds trade is different from how the single trader works. Even if they are both trying to buy low and sell high or whatever, a fund must do it in a manner other than how someone trading from home can. Alright, if you go to one of these companies that asks $20,000 per month for their services, are they definitely doing the same stuff that people here might? Consider what ranks sites: links, content. If you are creating your own links and your own content, a big company has to do the same thing, too? Are they just doing it on a bigger level? I can't think of anything they would be doing that wouldn't be the same. Do they have their own strategies that single people can't produce?
