These are over the course of my trading career (if I can call it that as I'm still developing). I don't plan on buying any more.

1. Tradestalker. I don't recall how much this was but I'm sure it was < $100.00. Pretty much worthless IMO.

2. YTC Price Action Trader. I bought this during a 50% off sale around Christmas several years ago. I was very impressed with the amount of material and the depth of the material. I think there's a lot of value there, especially at 50% off. Lance has always been good with email communication and answering questions too. I don't bother him much now but I know that if I did he'd still answer.

3. 2nd Sky Forex Course. This was either late 2017 or early 2018. I don't recall what I paid, maybe $200. It's good and bad. The course itself is pretty good and covers PA concepts in a way that YTC/Lance Beggs does not. All of the course material are videos and there's a forum where you can ask questions and get clarification. There is also a Trading Psychology course that I did not buy. I think the course itself is a good complement to the YTC stuff. Chris (who owns the stuff) makes fun of Lance indirectly which is very unprofessional. I got mixed vibes from Chris early on. He really controls the content on the forum, which is good as this keeps topics on point and questions geared toward the specific material he teaches. Chris also claims to be a Buddhist but some of his behaviors are not consistent with those values and beliefs. Late last year Chris was pushing some sort of program where you paid a lot of money to be hooked up to wires to measure your pulse and other stuff and he and some English guy would look at it. Then you could join his hedge fund or something if you did "well". I got really turned off by all of this as it seemed like a blatant money grab to me. Maybe I'm too sensitive or maybe I'm right. I do think the PA course is pretty good. If you're a sucker for used car type sales pitches maybe stay away because it seems like things have headed that direction.

4. I had started and stopped Adam H Grimes' course a few times over the years but I did actually do it from start to finish in 2018. Adam plugs his other services here and there but it's not over the top or anything. His course might be the best one I've gone through and it includes videos and coursework that you do on your own. And it costs no money, only the investment of your time. Considering it's free, this might be the best value out there. It really changed the way I see markets and price action. Anyone who is not consistently trading profitably should really go through this. It's definitely not a weekend course; if done right it will take months.

Hope this helps someone in the future :-)

Kevin, my apologies for not seeing your question until now. I use it to identify weakness in price action. I've annotated and attached a chart to give you a better idea:

Has anyone tried the https://www.preciseadvancedtradingsystem.com/ I think they call it PATS? Thanks for response in advance.
Appears to be new site.

Having viewed the website and u-tube videos, I'd also be very curious on any user feedback. Seems to be a very clear set of indies, especially the filters which keep you out of chop, but it seems a little bit too good to be true (i may be wrong). Wondering if vendor requires one to tweak the settings in NT, or if s/he uses the indies out of the box. If settings need to be tweaked then that goes into the land of curve-fitting or long periods of testing, for each instrument.

Wow. This thread was long.

If anyone read the whole thing - was anything worth the price?

My only confession is that I bought and read close to 100 books when I first started. It was mostly a waste of time with a few exceptions.

Well curiosity killed the cat lol..So I asked for a trial and they currently don't offer. I made it clear that I did NOT want to curve fit every instrument everyday. They implied "curve fitting" is not necessary. After hesitation I went ahead and purchased the system/program. They suggested several settings and timeframes. Also sent me a template with ATM recommendations . Have been doing market replay all weekend. So far very pleased. Will attach pic from market replay from yesterday.
So basically the indicator s/he (they) refer to as PATS is pretty neat. You can program in multiple instruments with multiple time frames lower and higher with several other options. So I would say its more of a price action type deal.
Will run in SIM this week see how it goes.

iím interested to see how it works for you

Why would someone sell their successful system/indicators if it is in fact profitable?

Why don't mentors and gurus focus more on their trading, not their marketing?
