I must say that as skeptical a person that I am by nature, some of the posts here are overboard (yes you pboyles). I thought the purpose of the forum was to allow people to express their opinions on a certain topic. Whether they are believed/accepted are up to the reader (as with all internet postings). So, with that said, I will add some fuel to the fire.
I have been day trading for only a few years and along with the rest of you have taken seminars, attended many webinars, participated in six or seven trading rooms and purchased software and indicators but have not achieved the success I desired. I hesitantly enrolled in the Trading Advantage program 4 months ago and am glad I did for the simple reason that learning the Market Profile approach is a real eye-opener and I would highly recommend it especially to experienced traders. The combination of the market depth/internal charts that the Trading Advantage software provides along with the "high value areas" that are derived from market profile charts by Patrick Assalone (before the market opens) is uncannily accurate at picking turning points intra-day and well worth the tuition cost.
My only negative about the methodology is that the really good set ups seem to come only once or twice a day and you have to be exceedingly patient (which I personally am struggling with).
What really was the selling point for me signing up was the participation in live trading sessions every morning and the classrooms discussions every night. I have never heard of another training program that lasts for a year. Those of you that have taken other courses have learned the theory but the examples aren't duplicated in live trading. But being able to watch it applied in real-time day after day is "priceless" in terms of learning curve. So if you're willing to spend the time to learn and watch it in action, then it is well worth it.
So we are supposed to believe all these people decided independently to post their experiences within a day or each other and the timing is just a coincidence? Somehow I don't think so, obviously it's a spamming exercise, what a joke.
The course providers would be happy to see the thread deleted, so that wouldn't get my vote. Whatever action is to be taken - if any at all - is at the discretion of the Mods. I recommend that anyone who is concerned by the spate of recent testimonials should use the red flag 'Report Post' function and make their feelings known to the Mods. I've done precisely this.
