Are you working in Ireland as a trader Delmonico, or on the side? Do you trade through an Irish firm? - hardly, I'm guessing, they all seem to be rip-off merchants to me, but would be interested if there was a good crowd I didn't know of?
Well, has anyone any news. It is now a couple of weeks since this thread was started and still no feedback.
Did nobody sign up, even at the reduced price.
Eager to hear what people think?
Oscar, I had no response from my PM to you. Anyone home?
Guess people aren't really interested in what Malcolm has to say. I would say though Delmonico, that there's a 30 day moneyback offer so you could take up pmaa's advice?
On another note, I have been waiting since Tuesday to hear back from an email I sent to Malcolm asking him to clarify the differences between a course I bought from him in '02 and three others he's currently marketing in various guises.
I am NOT saying he's a crook but I am somewhat concerned that
1. The manual I initially purchased barely lived up to its claims
2. The support I received after purchase was poor
3. According to an email I received from Malcolm about a week ago, the support for www.instinctivetrader.com will also be very hands off i.e. via posted commentary on the site etc.
This basically means, as usual, buyer beware. Try your best to verify authenticity before purchase.
I know Malcolm submits posts to this site as 'MarketMaster' so I'm suprised he has not taken the opportunity to respond on this thread yet. Perhaps someone could PM him?
....at present is in a state of suspended animation.
Having found MR's ideas interesting in the past, I subscribed. For the first couple of weeks, there was a flurry of activity in the shape of demo movies, daily trading records (which, I think, were eventually conceded to be rear-view mirror). Also there was quite a lively bulletin board, but all this fizzled out around St George's day.
MR then reported in answer to a bulletin board question that he was going to take a couple of weeks out to think about the future of the site.....
The ideas are still interesting enough (otherwise I wouldn't have forked out) but they fall a good bit short of a working tool-kit. And as the master himself said in response to a question from one of the other members, he doesn't actually trade that way, and if he did the pricing of the site would have been different.
Over the weekend, MR has announced that the website is now back "in full swing" and will report on one or two choice trades per day (the reports are being done on streaming video, showing the chart with voice-over commentary - quite neat). The time-out for thinking has enabled MR to separate two products: a DVD on which he shows some setups and strategy, and his website. He was getting uncomfortable with the idea that what he was doing on the website was locking him into endorsing the strategy on the DVD, and he did not want to promote a system. (It does make one question why he thought he was not promoting a system, and if so why he should have felt uncomfortable with it). Pricing of website has come down to $26 per month.
One feature of the website that has not changed is that there are sections on trading psychology which are extracts from a site called Trading Mind (by Norman Hallett). This product is offered to Instinctivetrader subscribers at a concessionary price. Anyone know about Trading Mind? Is it any good, and/or worth the money?
I know a wee bit about Trading Mind and have had some email exchanges with Norman Hallett and others in regard to it. I think its one of those products that you will either find absolutely brilliant or detestable.
Its designed to help traders achieve the 'mental excellence' side of trading skill needed to win consistently in the markets. It's not about strategy but about self belief and the discipline needed to effectively trade whatever your designated system is.
I plan to acquire it sometime in the future as I can see the clear benefit it is designed to achieve. If it only barely lives up to its promise, it'll be well worh the $129 or so being asked and I think there's a mnoey back guarantee.
Tried the link. Did not come across a field for reclaim of coupons. Did not spend $129.
If anyone is interested(!) there are also similar disks giving Subconscious Training to the "Sales Mind" the "Golf Mind", "Tennis Mind" and to the "Slim Mind" (which is probably required for completing the purchase) The best one is, perhaps, the "Learning MInd" (which I guess is what you probably have not got if you complete the purchase).
I think that is insensitive to anyone who's tried the software.
Why do you hold this view? What are your thoughts on the value and importance of psychological wellbeing for success in any endeavour, whether trading or something else? What do you know about the human 'subconscious' and its impact on our behaviour - especially under pressure? What do you know about training the subconscious etc?
Everytime I've seen TradingMind mentioned, it appears well regarded. Anyone who's been involved in ANY endeavour with ANY degree of success will affirm to you the vital importance of the right attitude and mentality. What tool do you have/know of to aid this process?
I think you should proceed with caution until you know much more and can speak with authority before slagging this off as another rip off merchant. Don't forget there is a 90 day money back guarantee which is rare in this industry and means you can try it properly for free.
Remember, fake Gold and Rolex watches exist only because there is the real. There are real trading tutors and mentors out there and this may be one of those tools with real value.
and No, I'm not an affiliate, referrer, partner etc...
I apologise for any insensitivity. You may be right that this is a real Rolex, in the psychological conditioning world.
However, the context was an alleged special offer (ie discount from $129 to $35) which turned out not to be there. As regards 90 day approval periods, I hadn't noticed that they were rare; they actually seem to be offered in the e-book/distance learning segment of the market almost as a matter of good form. Since the disk has to be physically returned, however, there is an element of inertia to the purchase which would not be there if it were offered as a download (and could just be switched off by the vendor).
I just want us to be wary of jumping on the 'Slag Em b4 u Try Em' bandwagon. It seems many of us on these boards have had our fingers burned in some way or other and as such harbour a certain 'healthy' skepticism. We need to be wary we don't pitch ourselves into a conditioned rut.
Have you tried contacting Norman or Malcolm about the discount code?
