I signed up with a company to learn to trade the financial markets. The company I received my education from had a google plus community to share ideas and provided live webinars to help teach. Once I became consistent on my own I created my own community to share my analysis and started hosting webinars illustrating my views of the markets. Now the company that taught me is claiming im stealing their IP. How can my interpretation of the markets be their intellectual property. All my services are free btw. Thanks for any feedback.

The simple answer is you may have agreed to give up your rights / assign those rights to the company.

What agreement did you make with the company? There was almost certainly a "terms of service" involved for the online community itself, and perhaps another agreement for the course itself. Perhaps you didn't even realize you were agreeing to anything, sometimes these "shrink-wrap" or "click-wrap" agreement are buried somewhere.
