Added 3/15: Im taking requests if anyone needs any custom reports or symbols, I'm not guaranteeing anything, but I can try or at least let you know why it may not work.


I plan to do many more of these covering everything I can manage up to advanced/expert topics (maybe a few a week as long as I have time). I'm new to this video tutorial thing, so any constructive criticism is much appreciated. I would also love to hear about any topics that you guys would like to know about, and I will do my best to explain them in a video.
