1 - What platform are you using in the videos you create?

For charts, eSignal. My broker is LightSpeed.

2 - What broker do you recommend?

That depends on your strategy. If you are looking for a direct access broker, then I would look into LightSpeed. If you are playing (or plan to) trade penny stocks, many members in my trading group use either eTrade, Schwab, or Fidelity (I would stay away from Scottrade and TradeKing for penny stocks, my opinion). For additional details on brokers, be sure to check out my 'Getting Started' page HERE.

3 - What is this “trading group” you are referring to?

Click HERE to learn more about The Inner Circle trading group.

4 - Is The Inner Circle only for day-traders and/or experienced traders?

No. In fact, the majority of the traders in the group are not day-traders. They are those who look to hold their shares for at least a couple of days.

The experience level of the group ranges from beginner up to battle tested veterans.

5 - Can I have a trial period for your Inner Circle trading group?

When I first got started, I would have certainly considered the offer; however, I do not give free/test trials since the group has been around awhile, which has given me all sorts of feedback/testimonials. With this being the case, I know the current price I offer is very very fair for all the value you get.

If interested, you can read some of the testimonials HERE.

6 - I want to learn how to read/use technical charts so that I can eliminate my emotions. Where do I start?

My video course, Robotic Trading, is designed to give you a firm foundation in chart reading. The first two videos start from Point A, (first two are literally, What is Technical Analysis?, followed by, What is a Chart?) and from there, the course builds on each lesson all the way to Point Z.

7 - What would make more sense? Joining the Inner Circle first, or going through the Robotic Trading course first?

If you are able, I recommend you get started by doing both.

The reason I say this is the best path is because you will learn much quicker. By surrounding yourself with experienced traders in the trading group, you may not understand what they are talking about at first; however, as you go through the Robotic Trading course, more and more will make sense and it’ll be soaked into your memory that much quicker.

If you are only able to choose one thing at this point, I would just go with Robotic Trading, because without it, not much of my trading group will make sense to you.

8 - I have finished the Robotic Trading course, which of your other courses “comes next”?

After completing Robotic Trading, you will have a very firm foundation of how to read charts and use them, and because of this, it all becomes personal preference.

Meaning, if learning an in-depth strategy about bounce trades interests you, then Trampoline Trading is what you want. If you want to learn an in-depth strategy on breakout chart set-ups, then Volcano Trading is the course for you. Want to learn how to short along with shorting strategies? Then Shorting for Profit is the course you want.

Point being, there is no “right” or “wrong” course to take after completing the Robotic Trading course.

9 - Are there any discount coupons for your store?

Yes, there is; however, the only way to get access to the discount is to join The Inner Circle. After you do this, you will be emailed a discount code that is good for a 10% discount of anything else in the store (coupon is good for one time use).

10 – Any advice as I look into the penny stock market?

If you struggle with emotions, then my first bit of advice would be to learn charts.

My second bit of advice (even if you do not struggle with emotion) would be to check out my course, The Penny Stock Survival Guide. For only $99, it will give you all the information you need to establish the proper viewpoint/mindset in order to not get taken advantage of.

11 – Should I buy The Penny Stock Survival Guide or Robotic Trading first? Where does Mastering Level 2 factor in?

Theses three courses really go hand-in-hand, so the best route would be to go with all three and turn yourself into a Bow Hunting Robot with Nightvision. If you are only able to afford one at this point in time, then start with The Penny Stock Survival Guide (however, you are not making a bad choice if you choose to start with Robotic Trading or Mastering Level 2).

12 – I see many winning trades, do you not ever lose?

This is a very valid question. I know there are many traders out there who give off the perception that they never lose or have losing trade ideas.

I lose! I have losers! I am wrong! There, I said it :-) And I also do not hide it… you can click HERE, HERE, and HERE for a few of my “live trade videos” that show me losing money. If you don’t have time to watch a video, below you can see one of the bad days I had in trading ticker symbol $FB.

Losing as a trader happens, and I am no different than anyone else.

13 – Will charting work if I have a day job and can not always watch the market?

Charting is simply a measure of human emotion. Because human emotion occurs at all time frames in the market, charts can be applied to a variety of strategies. If you can not watch every second of the day, that does not mean charts will not work, all it means is that you will need to use a different time frame view of a chart (and you would be a “swing trader” rather than a “day trader”).

14 – How much money do I need to start trading with?

This is a very tricky question to answer. We all live in different areas of the country and have different “standards of living”, so the “cost of living” will be different for us all.

That is going to be a personal preference thing based on your own personal goals/objectives; however, I like to look at it like this as I think it is a good way to put things into perspective.

To make $100 using $100, you need a 100% gain. To make $100 using $1,000, you need a 10% gain.

15 – Will your trading group and education courses make me money?

No! As easy as it would be for me to say “pay me money and you will make money”, that is just a false marketing method.

The only person/thing/way to make money is through YOU. Can my trading group and courses assist you in making money? Absolutely. But at the end of the day, the only person who is going to give you a chance at consistent profitability is you.

If the market was really as simple as paying to follow someone, there would be a lot more people that can survive long term in the market.
