My trading 'investments'

My first course on futures trading was with Trader’s Help Desk (THD), back when Gail held seminars in Florida and before she was doing much with volume indicators. Useful concepts; I still use some of the indicators and setups. Not sure, but I think I spent about $2500 on the seminar and indicators (plus travel expenses). TradeStation was her primary platform, but the indicators are available for NinjaTrader and MultiCharts too.

Shadow Traders – Spent about $1700 for the course and indicators, and still use some of them.

Weis Wave -- $500 for the indicator; it is a ‘must-have’ on my charts. I feel blind without it.

Ninjacators – I signed up for the free indicator-of-the-month; I also purchased a few others from them, but like the free ones just as well. The free Fibonacci Confluence and RSD (resistance/support) indicators are pretty useful.

Pro9Trader from Academy Day Trading – participated in a two-day free trial of the software last week. I really liked the clean chart and indicators so I cobbled together my own approximation and am looking forward to using it in demo next week. The software (NinjaTrader template with indicators and a strategy) costs $1997 if you decide to buy it.

Some of the books I have invested in (but not entirely read):

Explosive Stock Trading Strategies, Samir Elias
Forex Price Action Scalping, Bob Volman (good info on price action, much more accessible than Brooks)
Generate Thousands in Cash on Your Stocks Before Buying or Selling Them, Samir Elias
Hot Commodities, Jim Rogers
How I made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market, Nicolas Darvas
How to Make the Stock Market Make Money for You, Ted Warren
How to Trade in Stocks, Jesse Livermore
Insider Buy Superstocks, Jesse Stine
Market Wizards, Jack Schwager
Micro-trend Trading for Daily Income, Thomas Carr
Point and Figure Charting, Thomas Dorsey
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, Edwin LeFevre
Tape Reading and Market Tactics, Humphrey Neill
The Compleat Day Trader, Jake Bernstein
Tools and Tactics for the Master Day Trader, Velez and Capra
Traders at Work, Bourquin and Mango
Trades About to Happen, David Weis
Trading Price Action Trends, Al Brooks (couldn’t get through it)

Last but certainly not least is my investment to become an Elite member of futures.io (BMT).

Frank Cappella's CANSLIM book

Best book on investing ever. Well, best of a bad breed. Marty Zweig's book on technical analysis was good, but not as good as the Canslim book.

The most useful parts of the CANSLIM method are look for stocks with low p/e, debt to equity, good liquidity, and good market cap. And increasing year over year revenues and earnings. Seems pretty obvious, except to the talking heads on Smart Money, CNBC, CNN, Mad Money, Street Smart.....and all those financial mags.

Careful reading anything from Tradingschools.org. It's mostly propaganada and has poor reviews done with poor research. It is operated by this guy.

Warning - Trading Schools.Org

If you do research on the website owner, you'll find discrepancies. It appears this guy had issues with the law in the past and is disgruntled. The guy failed in his trading career and paid the price for breaking the law. He's most likely using an alias if you look at website records carefully.

I disagree that it is "mostly propaganda." I find the site overall has pretty accurate reviews, based on my trusted industry contacts.

The site owner has a law breaking background, and is pretty up front about it in numerous place on the site.

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

I found his research excellent, for example he exposed the broker who didn't even provide connectivity to the exchange only sim while clients thought its real and of course took their money.

A Review of Emmett Moore | Trading Schools.Info

Emmett Moore - Global Trade Room

I advised users to get reviews from other resources. Just be careful with this individual.

As for Nonko, that is the risk with offshore brokers. When you are not American regulated, there is always potential for fraud. You get no protection.
