No, he does not give them away for free.

With just a little effort, I went from this YouTube video to his web site, where he offers subscriptions for a monthly payment. I didn't bother looking to see if there is any other paid service or product bring sold. You really could tell from the YouTube that he's going to be selling something. Which he is.

Now, this doesn't mean that he's not any good. I have no idea, not having sampled his wares. But it's important not to accept things at face value. It is also not necessarily a sign that something is not legitimate just because it comes at a cost. But people don't give away valuable things that take them some effort to present to other people, as in a well-produced YouTube channel, just because it's their hobby. Nor should anyone expect them to, of course, but it's always a case of "let the buyer beware" -- and even more so if the prospective buyer doesn't know that they are in fact a potential buyer who is being pitched to. A sales prospect.

Anyone who is interested in a vendor (to use the right term for this guy) is free to try out what is being offered, and it may even work out. Just be aware that you are on the receiving end of a sales effort, and that if they didn't think it would pay off for them in more sales, they wouldn't be doing it.

So just be careful.

Bob.

Also, if you're interested in what the guy is doing, try to reverse engineer the charts. Looks like there's a couple of charts with signals on them. All the tools are available to reverse engineer 99% of what vendors are selling.

I follow this guy here: [yt]https://www.youtube.com/@thealgotrader212[/yt]
He's the only trader I've found that kills it trading the NQ
and he doesn't sell courses.

Guess word hasn't gotten around how good he is at algo trading, huh?

I know he started streaming last year as part of an experiment to see if anyone out there was interested in algorithmic trading. He's only on a couple times a week, if that. But from watching him over the past year, the viewers that do join his lives are a small group of dedicated Nasdaq 100 traders. He's probably not good at marketing himself.

We're doing what we can. You notice that none of them last very long before banning.

We won't discuss what is being done about them, since there's no point in letting them know....

Sorry, if this is already been posted somewhere else in this thread, but it definitely deserves a mention. Itís not so much specific trader with their technique, but interviews with traders from all over the world. I found it to be one of the most useful, YouTube channels regarding training that I have ever found:

Desire to Trade (also a podcast)

- sorry, Iím not allowed to post links yet

I would like to add my financial experience having purchased the lifetime membership. Do Not buy the membership.


I would agree wholeheartedly that he does interviews and some are quite good. He is more of a travel agent as he travels far and wide to show you how he is trading across the globe. And he has done a great deal of interviews with allegedly successful traders.


O sure, he gives you a lot of freebies when you sign up, (i.e. a free spreadsheet etc) but it is all marketing.

I have never been able to understand his trading method.


So I dont want to discount or discourage Etienne's website altogether. But I do not think it is worth the 500 bucks to learn to trade from him. 297.00 would have been more reasonable.



Just recently he sent out a new product that appears to cost about 700 bucks. But that special pricing is for members only i think. Nevertheless, give him a try if you dont have to give him your money.

Etienne lost me when he started marketing algo out of the blue. Algo trading is a completely different beast from the discretionary, and the fact that he starts marketing his algo systems without any history behind it smells bad to me.

I am not sure if these channels have been mentioned:

Chat with traders
B the Trader
Trading Nut

The first one is solid, even after changing hands a few months ago. The last one is not amazing, as he is not selective with his guests, but some interviews are good.
