Frequently Asked Questions Updated: 02 Dec 2019

Client Subscription

  • What is the Pre-launch price offer?
    For some time, I’ve been working with individual trading clients on an informal basis and following the publication of Way of the Trader, interest from new clients increased significantly. In response, I’m upgrading the services I offer to a formal client subscription model with a structured and supported education program at its core.

    The new subscription model was due to launch in the summer of 2019 because I started recording trading videos in August 2017 with a projected completion date of two years. To date (Sept 2019), the back-end infrastructure of the website to support subscriptions and video hosting have been completed but only about half the videos are done.

    In the meantime, I’ve had repeated requests for access to the Help-Up strategy videos, plus the charts and documents which appeared in Way of the Trader. As an interim solution, I’ve decided to ‘pre-launch’ the new client subscription model and open access to the education program material which has already been produced.

    A Pre-Launch Client Subscription is available now for just $499. This allows access to locked down areas of the website for one year, attendance at webinars, email support (respond in 24hr), 60 minutes personal consultation and promo coupons for the website store. As soon as the education program is complete (expected to be Spring 2020), the full price of $1499 will be applied to all new client subscriptions

    Before taking out a pre-launch client subscription, you should be aware it includes an education program which is still being rolled out.

    When new videos are added to the program they may not appear in sequence and will be added to different modules. A preview of the videos which are currently available can be seen on the Education Program page, charts and documents from Way of the Trader are on that web page. Some free-to-view videos can be seen on the Platforms page and also on my YouTube channel. These previews will help you decide if a client subscription suits your needs.
  • What's included in the subscription?
    A Client Subscription includes the following:
    • Education program with over 50 videos (Expected completion Spring 2020)
    • Full size color charts and documents from Way of the Trader
    • Proprietary technical indicators and tools for TradeStation®
    • Personal one-on-one consultation via Zoom with screen share (60mins)
    • Email support (response in 24hrs)
    • Discount coupons for use in the store
    • Pre-trading checklist
    • Market View posts
    • Recorded webinars
    • Attendance at live webinars

    On completion of the education program, you will be able to scan and sort stocks, assess and manage trading risk, identify your preferred trading style, use proven trading strategies, fully prepare for the trading day, understand what technical indicators tell us (and do not), program orders and manage your funds. In short, you will be able to face the market with clarity and confidence.

    I strongly suggest you read Way of the Trader before taking out a client subscription. The education program is delivered on the assumption you have read the book and will frequently refer to points raised in the book. In this regard, Way of the Trader acts as an introduction to the program and a supporting workbook as the program progresses. If you don’t already have a copy, as a client, you can get free shipping by using the Promo Coupon on your client profile page.
  • What happens when I purchase a subscription?
    After purchase a welcome email and receipt will be sent to the address provided. To access the client area of the website, login by clicking on the blue Client icon on the top menu bar. Once logged in, you can view and edit your profile at any time by clicking on your name in the menu bar.
  • How long does a subscription last and how much is it?
    A Client Subscription allows access to locked down areas of this website and is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. This can be renewed at a discount for subsequent years by clicking the link on your profile page. The full price of a Client Subscription is $1499 but a pre-launch price offer is available until December 2019 for just $499.

  • Why can't I access the Market View posts?

General Queries

  • Can I make money trading stocks?
    This is the most frequent question from new traders and the answer is yes - but making money on a consistent basis is not an easy task. Over time, traders lose money for four reasons; poor risk management, lack of trading education, emotional trading and unprofitable strategies. Before placing a penny in the market, you should learn the habits of professional traders and that is what the Education Program provides.
  • What trading styles do you use?
    Trend following on daily and weekly charts are my favorite and most profitable trading styles. I also swing trade on daily charts and day trade when the conditions are right.
  • Do you supply trading tips or stock recommendations?
    As it says in Way of the Trader, "Trying to trade someone else’s ideas is like trying to comb our hair while looking at their reflection. Ultimately, we are our own opponent when we trade, so mimicking the actions of others is pointless." For this reason, I don't supply trade ideas or recommendations. Having said that, I will occasionally review stocks if asked and share my opinion on the set-up.
  • Do you manage funds for others?
    One of the Four Legs under a trader's desk is 'Responsibility' - we have to take responsibility for ourselves and our trading activity. Accordingly, I don't manage funds for others. I provide educational resources and trading tools for active individual traders.
  • Are you an authorised investment advisor?
    I am not authorized to provide financial or investment advice. Explicitly, the opinions and views expressed should not be understood as an encouragement to purchase or sell any particular security or financial instrument. Content is provided for information and education only and is not a recommendation to trade. Trading is not suitable for everyone and involves the risk of losing money. Please read the Trading Disclaimer.
  • What financial instruments do you trade?
    Liquidity and transparency are essential for traders, so I trade blue chip equities, liquid ETF's and futures. That's not to say other instruments can't be profitably traded, of course they can, but equities and futures suit my trading style and risk profile. As a rule, I avoid CFD's, binary options and crypto-currencies.
  • What markets do you trade?
    In recent years, I’ve mostly traded U.S. equities and futures due to the liquidity, regulation, transparency and free availability of information. The relative strength of the U.S. economy and dollar are other important factors.
  • How secure is this website?
    I implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. For example, this site has a True BusinessID Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate issued by GeoTrust. Therefore, all data passed between your browser and my server remains private and integral.
  • How do you process payments?
    All payments in the store are processed externally by Stripe, one of the largest on-line payment platforms in the world. As a result, I do not have access to client's debit or credit card details because the information never touches my servers.
  • How do you manage my personal information?
    Clients can view their personal information on their Profile page. This includes last login time and date, unique user ID, name, verified email, subscription level, subscription status and email notification status. They can also change their name, email address, password and email notification status. Clients can request a copy of their Client Activity Log which contains the time, date, type of activity and IP address for every visit they made to this site.

    In addition, clients can cancel their subscription at any time and request to have all information associated with their account deleted.

    I do not share client information with 3rd parties. This does not include trusted 3rd parties who assist in operating this site, conducting my business, or servicing clients, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

    For more information please see the Privacy Policy & Cookies page.
  • How safe is my password?
    Client's passwords are masked through a process called 'hashing' which uses a function in PHP 5.6 known as 'bcrypt'. Bcrypt is an adaptive hash function based on the Blowfish symmetric block cipher cryptographic algorithm. This replaces the actual password entered with a random set of numbers and letters that are stored on my server. This allows our systems to validate your account credentials when you login without revealing your password. This is a recognized industry security standard.
  • What if I forget my password?
    If a client forgets their password and clicks the 'Forgotten?' link on the login form, a new randomly generated password will be sent to their registered email address. They must click on the button in the email to activate the new password. This password can then be changed on their Profile page.
  • Why are your prices in US Dollars?
    Even though I am based in the eurozone, the majority of my clients are not and the US dollar is the most popular currency for international transactions. Non-US clients will be billed in their local currency by my payment partner Stripe.
