Focusing on 1 week to monthly swing trades. No interest in scalping. Pure naked charts with >10 years of profitable experience.

If course fee is no concern, who will you recommend?

I'm interested in this question as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. However I am interested in scalping, so any price action traders to learn from would be awesome, thank you.

c0der, you may look at the course at https://www.marketlife.com. The course is extensive. It is free but very high quality. It makes use of technical analysis to provide context about buying/selling pressure and behavior. The actual trading style or decisions are based on price action. No magic indicators or patterns. Simply understanding behavior of buyers & sellers engaged in the live auction process.

What is your focus with respect which products?

I am a seller of option premium but want to transition to short-term stock swing trades 3-15 days.

To answer both of you at the same time my suggestion would be brookstradingcourse.com.

Al Brooks is a well know price action trader with a ridiculously low price course that offers in depth knowledge of every aspect of trading.

It covers everything a complete beginner could use gain a good understanding of the basics yet hours of advanced trading concepts for those already experienced.

It covers the basics of swinging and scalping and money management.

The course is MASSIVE yet undeniably easy to navigate. You can easily jump to any section you might need to brush up on at any point and it keeps track of videos you have and haven't watched.

On top of the course you get bonus videos, lots of extras to keep you busy for months of learning and studying and has a daily and weekly blog and periodically had special events.

He answers questions on his sites and has a chat room (extra and you don't need, especially at first).

This is only a suggestion to check it out. All is true to what I believe but you have to see if it's right for you.

Good luck.

Thanks so much for your suggestion about marketlifetrading, I signed up for the free class 2 days ago and I am thus far very impressed with what Adam Grimes gives us for free. I found this website scrolling through past forum posts someone had suggested, I am on module 2 and am taking it very seriously and I suggest everyone to do so as well.

I enjoy selling option premium as well, 0DTE on the SPX is what I have most experience on.

@c0der, I 100% agree with @Sandpaddict. You will see that the price-action described in Al's course occurs on all timeframes including weekly/monthly timeframe you described.

I think my favorite part of the course right now is the "Daily Setups for Encyclopedia Members", where Al provides a more thorough chart showing the always-in entries and price-action than what he provides in his blog. It is great to compare against at the end of the day, though there's a 1-day lag before the encyclopedia entry goes in. I think he is currently beginning to cut back to posting analysis three days a week instead of 5, but he still provides analysis for every single trading day unless he's on vacation or something which is quite rare.

It takes a long time to perceive the entries correctly in real-time, at least for me, but that does not make the approach any less valid. I think if you are really interested in this path, take a look at @Pa Dax's journal, I believe he provides a terrific view into how he takes Al's ideas and trades them effectively.

@dailen1 - also you may enjoy the podcast "Trader's Workshop with Adam H. Grimes". It is mostly about psychology. There are not too many episodes. I consumed them before I started the course. It gave me a strong feel (and respect) for Adam's thinking.

You've gotten two suggestions so far, and both have merit.

Grimes is not exactly exclusively "price action," but the term is itself very vague. I think you will find the course valuable and it will be worthwhile, which I think is what you are looking for.

Brooks is explicitly "price action," according to his own definition. The course, and all of his material, are, in my opinion, very hard to get through due to his writing style, and also very valuable when/if you do. You will learn a lot if you undertake the Brooks course. Be aware that it will take an effort. Brooks is a short-term day trader, but he says (and I agree) that his stuff works on any timeframe.

And there are good and profitable traders who will say that everything by either of these guys is bunk, and everything I have written is wrong.

One thing to learn, if you haven't already, is that traders who disagree on many things, or everything, can each make money. So it's not that there is one correct "price action" method, nor one method of any type necessarily, but that each trader has to take what they find and apply it to the markets for themselves. While there are many things that work, there are also many that don't, so it's the judgment of the individual trader that will lead to a good outcome.... for them.

Good luck, and you can reasonably take up either of these as a next step.

Bob.

I haven't seen Grims ( at least my memory doesn't have any recollection atm) but I can certainly echo on AL brooks material. Wont recommend to be dependent on it though, it will be just a starting point.

Trading is not that easy, even if we like to think otherwise.

Even though I recommend Brooks I would echo LastDino's sentiments.

The reason I think Brooks is a good start is two fold.

One. His course is comprehensive as you get an understanding of the fundamentals of trading from the ground up. Two. I believe the information is accurate and deliberately not hyped.

After that Al like many others has a very specific way of trading.

My recommendation would be to immerse your self in ANYTHING you find interesting but TEST EVERYTHING by trading on sim on live data. (Basically forward testing vs backtesting)

In the end no two traders trade the same and trading is so personal you have to find whats comfortable for you.

Personally I follow Lance Beggs of YTC. I own his ebook series (unbelievably fantastic) and man everytime I see a blog post I'm amazed and WANT TO TRADE LIKE THAT.

Same with Lancelottrader here on FIO. I see his trades and go YA! YAH! I want to trade like THAT!

Hah! Good luck. Complete disaster everytime.

But I have learnt and incorporated slowly things into my already formulated trading plans and that way they do add to my repreitor.

Good luck my friend
