Beginners Learn to Trade and Invest in Stocks with Consistent Success

TechniTrader Methodology Essentials Standard Course review - by Chuck P. - "The ME10 (Methodology Essentials) course is in a word: Outstanding" 

The ME 10 (TechniTrader Methodology Essentials Standard) course is in a word: Outstanding. I'm not one to give undeserved praise. It's exactly for what I've been looking over the last two years.

I started reading Van Tharp, then went to Alex Elder. Both approach trading from a psychological perspective.  They are the better ones that I've come across, the latter especially. But, there was something missing, nothing that I could really put my finger on.

I've read most of Dr. Elder's books, used his software, and was an off-and-on subscriber of his Spike Trade group. The latter had participants that picked stocks and supplied their technical analysis. The successful ones were "promoted" to Spikers. But, their picks were low-priced, mostly obscure stocks. It didn't make sense to me. Dr. Elder promotes his Trading Camps for traders who have read his books, have put that knowledge to use, and are ready to progress to a week-long course taught by him in a tropical location. I recently purchased a DVD of one of these camps and discovered that he was just teaching his most popular book. Moreover, the countenances of and few questions asked by the participants reminded me of a get-rich-quick real estate seminar that a girlfriend dragged me two years ago. These people weren't learning, they lacked that proclivity.

Then I sent him an email questioning one of his views on current market conditions and received what at first blush seemed a condescending answer to the effect that when I become more experienced…  I replied that I'd been studying his books and subscribing to his Spike Trade for two years and that I was managing my own half-million dollar portfolio. I received a reply that this was serious money and that I should consider contacting his second banana - my term - as a coach. This man had a full-time job unrelated to trading. That is, if he's so good, then why isn't he making a living trading? And, if this was "serious money," what are the demographics of his market? That's when all the pieces came together.

I've run my own businesses for over 25 years, but I spent eight years in the corporate world prior to that after I graduated from college. Although I never allowed myself to think I was smarter than my peers, I found that I was from a practical sense. I enjoyed  ever increasing responsibilities in two companies--just before the home building industry collapsed in the early 80's, and the oil and gas business collapsed five years later. Most of the positions that I held were created for me. But, I'm not tooting my horn. I succeeded because I was the boy that saw that the emperor was naked. One example is that I was contracted to restate financial statements because of an overdue change in the accounting principal used for oil & gas drilling expenses/costs. The international, and now defunct accounting firm Arthur Andersen of Enron infamy, was making billions in fees running these engagements that were forced on the industry by the SEC.

After about fifteen minutes of this drudgery, it occurred to me that it was being done wrong. They were having this company restate the financials only five years--the period of the current public set of statements--instead of going back to inception as required by a change in accounting principal. The first accounting course that I took in college discussed how to account for accounting "changes" there are four types and a method for each type. It took me a few minutes to overcome the seeming assuredness of my conclusion and that I must be missing something. But I wasn't.

By the beginning of the next day Arthur Andersen had to disengage from these thousands of engagements worldwide. While I "thought" myself out of a contract engagement, the point is that it wasn't any genius on my part. Rather, people don't think. Thinking hurts. In this instance the guy I reported to, a peer who had been in another Big 8 accounting firm as had I, refused to believe it, but agreed with me within a few minutes. Then we went to the Arthur Andersen senior, same thing, then a phone call by her to the Dallas office, and the dominos tumbled.

Most of the other "successes" that I experienced in the corporate world were similar--people just didn't think and found it easier to assume what was was the way it was suppose to be.  I remember a member of the HR staff at that oil & gas company that eventually hired me a year later asking me why I had to be different, why couldn't I just be like everyone else?  Now that was telling. A friend of mine coined the term "spodabees," as in "it's spoda be this way."

I've no doubt that Martha sees this. Only a noble dedication and "seeing" would lead someone to develop a knowledge core and teaching it, and I use the word, teaching, advisedly. I have to wonder how broad a customer base she enjoys, and of that base how many complete the courses and the additional required rigors, let alone appreciate her passion and dedication. For those that do, I've no doubt that they experience success.  I cannot adequately express my appreciation for the professional curriculum that I am enjoying studying the ME10 (TechniTrader Methodology Essentials Standard Course).

Thanks,

Chuck P.

TechniTrader Methodology Essentials Standard Course review - by Bud V. - "I cannot believe how ignorant I was." 

Wish I would have had this (TechniTrader Methodology Essentials Standard) course years ago before I lost so much money...obviously I have a ton to learn, but so far the course looks great...no wonder I lost money.

 

Actually when I traded before I had no fear. Now I fear, but will have tools. I cannot believe how ignorant I was.

Beginner Course Review by Ralph R. S. - “Thank you Martha and Howard for believing that a beginner could learn with a proper education. And that is me!”

I have been speaking of Martha's excellence and definitely wanted to thank Howard. I know that you get many emails of thanks with grateful hearts however I am sending mine as well. A friend of mine introduced me to trading and God only knows how I have been in prayer concerning a career change. And I believe that this is my answer. I have a very grateful mindset for TechniTrader and so choose to type my expression of gratitude.

I have been studying a few months of TechniTrader education via webinars, TechniTrader website and live radio via Martha, in preparation for the Methodology Essentials Standard Course. I am so grateful! This is exactly where I need to begin my journey.

A good shout out for Tammy. She was very patient with me, created some options to choose from and help direct the path forward.

I have built some notebooks to correspond with the course, have organized numerous tabs and begun studying the “Walk Around the Market” and am having a blast. As have I spoken before I could possibly send a thank you email each and every day. But I am practicing my self-discipline.  

Here is a tid bit of humor...Tell Martha I am learning my "A B C's" and beginning to not only put words together but slowly building sentences.  :)

Thank you Martha and Howard for believing that a beginner could learn with a proper education. And that is me!

Thank you Mel for your correspondence.

Sincerely,

Ralph R. S.
