  1. Any strategy implemented poorly is a failure. That was one of my points.

    But where did he get the money to open a clearing firm? Moving avg crossovers? I don't think so.

  3. Any strategy that assumes market will trend every day is and will always be a failure , it has nothing to do with the implementation.

    All these trading failures move out of trading , into something profitable.95 % of traders fail.They just fail .

    Always remember that even a losing trader can still be a good teacher. Not in how to make money but rather how to set your computers up, how to create a trading log, money management, discpline, how to construct a proper trading plan, time management and so on.

    Just having a edge is not enough, there's far more to trading that buying and selling at the right times.

    As for Lance Beggs.

    Yes, I know it's a probabilities thing when trashing vendors. Trash every vendor and you'll come out on the winning side guaranteed. But if probabilities are involved that also means there has to be a few good guys out there and maybe even a very small handfull of really GREAT ones. Educators whose research and analytical skills along with their overall understanding of the trading process are second to none.

    Or to put it another way, long shots can win :)

    I tried his stuff. His setups are still vague and don't have a real edge based on the material he gives you. A few people on BMT have journals doing YTC PAT and another guy was trying YTC scalper. I seen one guy spending a year on YTC PAT and he's still struggling convinced he'll get better with "practice". YTC scalper is horrible in part in that gets one into the bad habit of doubling down and it takes time to unlearn that habit.

    His main conceit is "trust the order flow". bull. If anyone can predict the "order flow" it wouldn't be a vendor or retail traders. Too many times the setups can go the other way so it's still a coin toss. There is advice on drawing s/r lines but again it's all "vague" and "discretionary".

    His blog is full of wordiness commenting on the latest example as usual after the fact. There are lots of words on making a trade journal. But we've seen this before in "Doc" Barry Burn's , "Foundation" courses. When is a trade edu-vendor going to sell a real edge? never, at least not for a mere $297.

    Sometimes I think these vendors were big losers or at best currently trading still like a gambling crap shoot and using their sales to bolster or negate their losses.

    Better off going back to Al Brooks' books and go through each and every example like it was a math class you'd have to pass to graduate to learn price action. At least you can see Al's obsessiveness in "scientifically" analyzing the market like a professor and rarely waxes philosophical about trading pop-psychology in his material. (well, if you already read the books, then try some of the live webinars; only $5 a day if you go by days to the end of the month; and then maybe add an oscillator or MA to help with Brook's entries and signal bars; Brooks does have entries covered in his books)

    I see on his website he recommends Al Brooks books. He also recommends TradeStalker. He has links to naked.com or whatever it's called with the 9/30 setup. Also some Macd and REI setups. I think he is just regurgitating everything he has read and now wants to make some $$$ from all the reading he has done. Just another vendor trying to cash in.

    It's baloney.

    So you're looking for a turnkey solution to produce profits. You're looking for a simple set of A-B-C instructions to follow to churn your way to easy street.

    And now you've found them for just $197 or whatever.

    Good luck with it.

    I'd say if you had spent the last 2.5 years studying the market for your self and making your own conclusions, you'd probably be well on your way by now.

    Instead, you've wasted 2.5 years of your life looking for a short cut that doesnt exist. Congratulations. You'll never get those 2.5 years back.

    How are you going to spend the next 2.5 years?

    Good luck +

  10. Based on this thread I looked around and found a (free) copy on the net. I have not finished reading it, but sofar it seems it is a great book on discretionary intraday swing trading, and it complements Al Brooks book.
    But it is still discretionary, and will not give you a turnkey system ready to go. You need experience to see its value, but by that time you would have found out by yourself why are the things he is talking about are so important.
