I want to thank Mike & John today from TST for their time in this webinar. We had over 450 people sign up, and almost 200 questions in the webinar - so that is why it ended up running 2.5 hours long!

I think the webinar should answer almost all questions about TST and I hope everyone benefited from it.

I'll post the recording sometime tomorrow in the usual spot.

Lots of questions they answered were already in the TST FAQ. I think they could extend it using the most common 20-50 questions and the next webinar could be 1 hour shorter.

I am looking forward to the audio posting because I missed the 2nd half. Did they say how many Live traders they have or what's their average monthly earning was?

just wondering....

Having read 250,000 posts on this forum over the last 3 years, I think I have more experience than most anyone else when it comes to knowing the routine of the average trader that is losing money, going in circles, and can't break out. I asked TST to come on the site because I believe they can help traders be successful.

If you attended the webinar, then you would know how I feel about it as I mentioned it several times. They are a business and they do make money. But considering how most traders blow their account money, this program is a million times better and gives traders the structure, discipline, risk tolerances they need to be good traders.

Naturally, some people will not like the program. Those people should not be reading this thread but instead hopefully spending their time on other things they do enjoy.
