Attended their seminar last month to see what all the fuss was about.

Huge waste of 2 hours....I think I missed Biggest Loser too.

Anyway, they pick very odd hours to trade instruments (for example CL at 7pm, not 7am when the volume arrives).
Can you trade CL at 7pm? Yes.
Should you? No.

The other thing, which absolutely stunned me....was that they don't use any stops.
I pressed the moderator on this....and she said their only going for a handful of ticks (handful meaning 4-5).
I then asked if she was joking, and she said no, that their "Fractals" are very good at picking support/resistance.

I then exited the webinar.

Anyone that day trades for a living, and doesn't use stops, and then attempts to sell their indicator to the masses has lost all credibility.

Theres a similar Fractal thing available for free on here, it didn't come with any users guide......but I will post here again when I figure it out and backtest it.
