    Thanks for posting. At home amateurs that work other jobs don't get a chance to listen
    to professional traders .
    YouTube has so many choices(salesmen mostly) Any other videos on YouTube that people can suggest?
    But , then again why would any other profitable trader show another what to do?

    Is this guy for real? Anton Kreil. Apparently he now teaches trading. He said in 2 years, teaching 80 students, the group has never had a losing month trading.

    He sounds very sensible. Millionaire Trader is available in a 3 part Youtube series. Will watch that after I complete this six parter. It's a BBC series in 2009 that traded to replicate the Turtle experiment.

    I would not bother grinding through 'Millionaire Trader', it's rubbish.
    He makes far more sense in these videos, although it's nothing new.
    Bottom line, if he was killing it trading, why bother with all this other crap?

    Meh, I don't mind a good story. If it's boring, I'll stop viewing.

    Just finished 2 books, Wolf of Wall Street and The Buy Side: A Wall Street Trader's Tale of Spectacular Excess. Some good nuggets about how ppl made some of their money.

    Ah geez, dude has this "professional trading masterclass with anton kreil" promotional video. Apparently it's 2,000 pounds.

  7. I skimmed it, everything was ok except the 12 month track record to prove you know what you are doing.. which is way to short in this business. Plenty of beginners get lucky in the first 12 months.

    He is selling, i doubt many of his students will be profitable enough after 3 years. That doesn't sell as well as spinning a 12 month record which could just be luck or skill.

    End of the day, he just another former trader taking the easier and risk free path of snake oil vending.
  8. Anton Kreil? Institute of Trading and Portfolio Management! The most comprehensive online trading course in the world!

    What a joke...

    Welp, I wasn't expecting much but I liked Million Dollar Traders. If you are looking for discussion on Turtle strategy, forget about it. Very little talk about strategy except for references to "building portfolio with long/short positions" and some pair trading trades.

    What the show did very well was show the psychological stress of throwing a bunch of newbies into a very volatile trading environment that involved the 2008 crisis. Britishs are big on being proper and watching some of the traders break down as the losses mount was very riveting.

    I tried to google whether this reality show was staged but couldn't come up with anything. Pretty skeptical about "reality" shows when I found out all those pawn and picking shows are completely fake. In any case, the show seemed very real, very much like how regular people would react in a high pressure situation where they have to perform. Thought Anton/Lex should have handle managing the rookie traders better but that only showed that they weren't really managers but traders.
