On the surface this seems like the perfect "academy." Lot's of testimonials, but no proof of any sort to back them up. So you'd be wise to consider the issues raised by this negative review Reviews of TheDayTradingAcademy at Investimonials

I received a lengthy reply, which in essence says "no, we will not provide proof of trading."

I replied back:

However, all vendors make claims that they can't prove. And your organization now falls into this category because

a) you promise daily "recaps" ( hindsight trading);

b) the head trader says he made 12 points on 10/04, but is unwilling to prove it;

c) you direct me to see statements on your website, but there are only 6 statements there for last 10 months and they are NOT representative of the type of trading Marcello is promoting. That is, I read through the statements and the trades listed don't corroborate the type of day trading shown on the webinar.

I have watched several of Marcello's public videos that show his hand-drawn results on the chart. Very nice. But never, ever, he showed his real trading screen. For now, I remain skeptical.

Additional facts:

a) Have you seen how Marcello always has "just one more spot left"?

b) How did he get 2 points from a move that produced less than that? See my picture of this questionable trade Free Online Storage - MediaFire. At least where Marcello's arrows point to could not have produced two points. He can either move the arrows around a little bit or show his trading statement.

I got on his mailing list and received links to some of his intro videos. Marcello, assuming he is the main instructor, likes to show intro videos showing him at exotic vacation spots like Rio and Gibraltar. He looks extremely young for having claimed 10 years trading experience, and then he says he just uses one computer, a laptop and it didn't even seem like a high-end laptop. Uncomfortable to say the least. It's fine to have fun in a video and a lax attitude intro to it all even though the vibe seemed like a college or highschool "academy".

Anyways there was some comment on the page about a student who blew up his account yet it was tried to put it into a context of a "bigger trading plan". It was not very inspiring or confidence building to say the least. Comments follow the blog post.

Investing & Day Trading Education: The Day Trading Academy

Someone emailed me screenshots of their sessions at DTA. It's the same as the recent "recap" screenshots on the main site. Basically the method is to wait for a full penetration by price on the main center moving average of the bollinger bands, then enter on a retrace tag of the main EMA. A very common retrace entry idea. With supposedly some extra bias from the "yellow" moving average, whatever it is. That's all it is. My pal said the sessions were just the usual babbling over the supposedly good trades in recap hindsight which are those "screwcap" red and blue markers yet never any NT entry markers when the chart can be plainly seen to be an NT chart. And how can one even gauge meaningful HLC price action from those price bar types. (example)

https://thedaytradingacademy.com/day-trading/market-recaps/february-4th-recap/

For $2k for the standard program one would expect the instructor to show live trades with markers. Anyways glad I didn't sign on. The intro videos from the free email list registration are entertaining and showing vacation spots and locales.

I raised some of the same issues but frankly this is a problem with the industry not just one company. I actually decided recently to join them and found it to be quite refreshing in comparison to most companies in this industry. I attended many sessions before I joined and one of the things that I like the most is that they have actual students teaching classes. There must be over 10 students that are trading live and making money most of whom I spoke to before joining the program.

All sales aside I think that the company may be one of the different ones in the industry. I would be happy to talk about my own success with DTA if anyone is interested in discussing it. Every company has its negatives and positives and being someone that has bought quite a few programs I would say that they are one of the best in the industry

I would like to know if anynone here, did this Marcello Arrambide´s courses at " TheDayTradingAcademy.com".

I'll save you the $2000. I was able to recreate their charts with some simple trial and error looking at their videos.
The Yellow Line is a Moving Linear Regression set at 89ish.
The band is a Keltner channel with the middle line set to EMA 55ish. with prob around a 3.5 multiplier to the upper & lower band.
Take trades with momentum off the middle EMA, with a tight stop, that's it!
You of course can learn all of this yourself with the tools and wonderful people right here at futures.io (formerly BMT).
Now stare at the price action everyday for a few weeks and you will see how it all works.

Take yourself and the family out to a nice dinner with the money you saved.

Ha, yes what skoosht said. Marcello's "customized" indicators would be very easy for someone to figure out who is decent at that stuff. I am currently a member and here is my review:

Marcello uses a 610 tick chart to trade with. The indicators he teaches to use are a "customized" MACD, Bollinger Bands and an EMA (or some other MA). I'm not sure what exactly the setting are b/c he has to register your NT to get them to work but I'm sure like skoosht said they are not hard to figure out. The main trades he teaches is waiting for price to come back to the middle Bollinger Band and then take the trade from there in the direction of the trend. There are a couple of other things to do with the EMA and MACD but that is the basics of it. The starting profit target is 2 points and the initial stop loss is 1.25 points on the ES. As you become better using his trading style you can incorporate "advanced" trades where you do not go by the rules from his indicators but more on the feel of the market. He also has an "advanced" section but I never made it there b/c he says that is only for his successful and advanced students so I wasn't really sure what to make of that. Every week you send in your trading log that he provides for you to fill out for all of your trades and a screen shot of your trading charts for the week. He then looks at them and sends you a review of how you did and where you can improve for the next week in a 3-5 minute video just for you. He also replies to emails pretty promptly and I've spoken to him many times about trading. From what I've seen he doesn't have a live trading room every day. About 1-2 times per week either Marcello or one of his successful students teach a live class where they talk about what is going on in the market for that day and they call out potential trades. At the end of each trading day he does a market recap of all of the trades he would recommend to take. As others have pointed out they are not his trading charts b/c the buy and sell orders are missing from the charts.

Is Marcello a businessman? Yes. He uses the corny lines such as "Only a couple spots left so sign up today" during his presentations where he is looking for new members. I think he definitely makes safe passive income by getting new students every couple of months. Is Marcello a scammer? No. Based upon my time at DTA and my interactions with Marcello he has been very helpful in helping me try to become successful using his trading style and didn't just take my money and have me watch a bunch of videos and offer no support. He doesn't provide 1 on 1 coaching for his membership if you are looking for that.

If you go to Investimonials you'll see he has a very high rating b/c of all of the positive reviews. I'm not knocking Marcello b/c I do not think he is a scammer but the reason why almost all of the reviews are positive is because they give a free month's subscription to their paid services if a member gives them a review on that site. They don't tell you it has to be a positive review but I think it's pretty obvious that they wouldn't give a free month's subscription to someone who left them a negative review. You just have to tell them your name on that site and that you gave them a review and they'll credit your account. I think most of the reviews are pretty honest b/c if the guy was horrible or a scammer then even a free month's subscription wouldn't have people give all of those good reviews. But it is something to note that they do provide an incentive for their members to give a positive review for them, they all are not out of the goodness of their hearts.

After your paid time ends you can then pay $150.00 per month to have access like you did before. I did about 5-6 months of daily chart reviews in Sim using NT's market replayer and I came to the conclusion that his trading style is not for me. I do not regret signing up for his course b/c I do think it really has helped me in my trading but his certain style of trading does not fit what I am looking for. Of course I wish I had the money back which is why I've signed up here at futures.io (formerly BMT) b/c the amount of information and knowledge contained here is astounding.

I see that someone created an account to act like a member here who probably works for DTA which is discouraging.

Who cares? You can study it all you want but its likely worthless IMO because the guy teaching it has no evidence he knows how to use it real time or if its even a real tradeable edge.. I've mentioned this many many times and it never ceases to amaze me that there are always so many naive people paying for what is obvious BS.. and then defends it, because now their own ego is tied to their bad judgement.. Always stay with this rule if you're going to pay... evidence! Show statements or real time results and ideally both.. because there is no shortage of BS.. Here's the bottom line for those wanting to learn day trading: THERE IS NO EDGE THAT IS HUGE.. EVERY EDGE YOU HOPE TO CAPTURE WILL BE SOMEWHAT MARGINAL. THEREFORE, THE PROFITABILITY IS IN THE EXECUTION.. W/O SOMEONE SHOWING YOU REAL TIME, YOU HAVE TO LEARN THE OLD FASHION WAY AND PUT IN SCREEN TIME 1'ST SIM THEN LIVE.. TRIAL AND ERROR.. PICK UP SOME TIPS FROM OTHER EXPERIENCED TRADERS AND PRACTICE AND CREATE YOUR OWN JEET KUNE DO..

Hi Marcelogil,

After I did about 6 months of simulated trading there was not something clicking with his trading style. I can't put my exact finger on it but it seemed like I was getting worse instead of better. The way he taught how to read the price action just didn't click with me so I was taking losing trades more often than I should have been. I'm being somewhat sarcastic in that I definitely didn't get worse than when I first started but it sure did feel that way b/c I wasn't able to pick up on how to read the price action the way he was teaching it.

One day I was on another trading forum and this one guy was talking about Mack and his Price Action Trading. I went to take a look at some of his videos and a light bulb went off. I understood what he was trying to teach even if I cannot correctly implement it right now. It always seemed confusing and like I wasn't making enough progress in Marcello's system. Maybe Marcello's system enabled me to understand Mack and what he is teaching. I do not know. All I know is Mack's teaching style makes perfect sense to me where Marcello's did not. I never had that "light bulb" go off when trying to trade using Marcello's teachings.

I had tried to read Al Brook's books before and I loved the concepts of price action trading but I didn't really understand what Al was trying to convey so I never ran with it.

I'm a big fan of Mack and his teachings which you can see in my trading blog on here. Marcello may be better for some people than Mack will be, that is up for them to decide. I'm not advocating one over the other. All I have done is give my opinion about my experiences with each of them.

Feel free to ask any other questions.

You are very welcome. Good to hear you are enjoying the manual. He also has a Youtube channel where he goes over the days price action. I don't want this to get off topic from the OP's original question so feel free to PM me any ideas. I'm in the learning stage just as much as you so it's always nice to have friends with similar goals in your journey.

Hi Joabucks,

From your posts about Marcello and his system it seems you are leaning towards him being a scammer. That is fine because I'm not trying to convince you otherwise. All I have done is given my opinion and experience from the time I spent in his classroom. If I felt I was ripped off then I would freely admit it and would be much more vocal than I have been. I would warn everyone I could not to buy his system but I do feel his system works for him even though I decided it wasn't for me. In my previous post I did address some of his corny/shady marketing tactics and some things he does that I don't agree with. If I had to do it all over again I obviously would not spend $3k on his course but I do not feel that I was ripped off from what he provided. (There is another live trading course I was in that I feel is a ripoff but that is for another discussion)

I first joined DTA in August of 2012 after being laid off. I have been studying the markets part-time for the previous 5 years and thought I had a good grasp of things- but that was all sim and not real-time in the markets.

I had previously been trying to master PATSmethod and not getting anywhere so I joined DTA in desperation. I joined DTA and thought Marcello was really good - I was impressed - daily mails with questions and charts were answered quickly. I thought I was getting awesome support.
The course itself was good- I thought the assignments were also a good way to review the material.

The highlights of the course for me were: Momentum and HTS. HTS being a non-subjective method to approach the markets. This is where things started to break down.

HTS provided a method to consistently take trades and really helped me deal with the emotional side of trading. Yep, you take the trade and get run over but you do it over and over and you will eventually see a slight edge. This was a valuable experience for me and one preached by the pro members of being consistent with your trades. Huge positive lesson for me. The negative is that the rules for HTS kept changing once moving to the advanced level- The rules were suddenly changing from being a valid HTS trade to a 'pro trade'. Once the pro trade was introduced your winners turn to losers and losers are still losers... for me anyway argh.

I recommended DTA to a good friend - He joined and unfortunately did not have the same experience I did. The daily response to e-mails turned to once a week and at this time I was booted out of the training because I did not want to pay additional monthly fees. Had I known about these monthly fees initially I probably never would have joined- I asked before signing and was told not to worry about it and it would likely be a long ways off (years). Anyway, I wanted to help my friend but could not because I was not in the class to view what was being said. This is my biggest regret about DTA- recommending it to a friend.

I really bought into the concept Marcello was pushing about wanting to develop an army of like minded traders to exchange and test ideas. Unfortunately this idea was pitched before the realization that it would be a constant fee coming from my wallet each month to Marcello.

I know this probably sounds negative - That is not my intent. A good friend of mine is a hedge fund manager- We meet regularly and he tests me. He indicated that he saw a big improvement in my trading after the DTA course. In our tests he would question what I was looking at to make my decisions. He made me realize I was not looking (or needing) anything on the bottom of the chart ( DTA indicators). I was using Momentum and the risk reward of HTS.

Today I have reached a level of consistency that many dream of. My friend the hedge fund manager is truly amazed. The bad news is the consistency came after abandoning DTA and re-applying myself to PATS and adding Jigsaw. However - The momentum and psych lessons of HTS were valuable and something I use today. If nothing else Momentum will keep you from counter trend trading and that is where many people lose their shirts. So that may be worth the price of admission for you.

Here are the strengths of the course in my opinion:
Good for basic intro to the Emini- SP futures market
Good Basic Ninja features
Momentum
Psych in HTS and the pro trade trainers. Actually in hind sight the relationships made with some of the pro trainers was worth the price for me.

Weaknesses:
Support and resistance - You only get half the picture
All the indicators provided are useless imho BB/macd/fyl they are all lagging indicators - like driving a car using your rear view mirror. Everything you need is in price.
Marcello is resistant to change and to new ideas.
No Real posted P&L
I told Marcello I could improve HTS by over 60% and he had no interest. I showed him a tool that I used that actually helps with HTS and he laughed.
So for folks struggling with DTA here is my suggestion that you can put to the test to improve immediately:

Visit Day Trading ? Price Action & Futures Day Trading Software From Jigsaw Trading go to the bottom and read the book How to survive day trading.
It is one of the best realistic views on the market and the industry I have seen. If you want to use DTA I believe by applying this product you can improve your edge greatly. I have no financial interest in this product btw. Try it for 2 weeks if it doesn't work for you no cost. The owner Peter is
very helpful.

FYI My equity curve is posted here it has since doubled:
The Best Part | Jigsaw Trading
but a few stupid mistakes and it can all go away...

Trading is a fickle business Each day I go in risking capital- I still make mistakes. I know my method works and some days my execution just plain sucks. The big difference for me now is that when I make a mistake I realize it and at the end of the day (knock on wood) end up positive.

Bottom line- Everything you need to be a successful trader is here on Big Mikes and time in the market.

Friday August 30th I had met my monthly goal so decided to take a retrospective view of how I trade
today and where I have come since abandoning DTA. This post hopefully will provide details I alluded
to in my previous post in how if you are using DTA you can add a tool to improve performance.
Red circles are short blue are long.

Here are the DTA trades for today- Using Marcello's examples of trading 10 contracts. I mentioned earlier that
in my opinion Marcello ignores important support and resistance areas. Here are the DTA trades and results
as I saw them today:




Better make an appointment with a cardiologist before you trade this!

During the same time period these are some of the potential trades using Mack's system:


We all know that it is easy to make claims after the fact, Also
I made mention of the tools that I use to improve performance in my previous post.
I went ahead and recorded this time session Friday and documented the valid trade areas
how they setup and you can watch (real time) how I use the mentioned tools.

Here is the chart with the video index times included:


Here is a link to the live recorded session for this time period.
Whenever I hit the counter reset button i am looking for a trade.

Hopefully this is enough information to allow you to make an informed decision regarding the Day Trading Academy.


08-30 ES PATS TRADE Setups - YouTube

I hope this post helps folks save time and $$

Please also note that I do not consider myself a trading expert - I am not available to
consult nor am I affiliated with the either Mack or Peter other than a great appreciation for the
help they have provided me to getting to my current state of trading profitably.

Here is another comparison of DTA vs the strategy I use today. It appears that these posts are helping the
DTA students because Marcello's blog now contains recaps of 'Master traders' that have adopted the ideas presented since posting here You can spend $3000 or more to let Marcello play with the little animals or you can spend $100 with Mack and learn how to trade. IMHO of course.

With Marcellos example of trading 10 contracts ( yea right) His method would have a loss of $385 (w commissions)
PATS would be a net profit ~$3500 - Just sayin'.

Just received notifications from DTA that I have been invited to attend a seminar they are hosting to learn these great new techniques! Some though I probably will not qualify for. Don't get me wrong I could care less about the Day trading academy. I care that people will be wasting their time and $$ ( like I did) for a system that will not produce profit. You can learn everything you need right here for free ( or nearly so). Looks like you can now pay him $3k for the base course and another 2k for this great seminar + travel to learn what you can get here for the price of an elite membership.

Your choice.

It appears by looking at The Day Trading Academy's terms and conditions they are part of the
day trade to win marketing group. I did not realize this so may be another thing to consider before
spending $$.

Thanks for sharing your concerns Welly192. Sorry you were had. I know someone else who had signed up too who proved the recaps did not match up with the blog result reports. Amazingly small effort in presentation for the $2k-$3k initial tuition cost, in their earlier incarnation and very 'fuzzy' rules and terms "like funny yellow line" for an "academy". A year earlier the bio info said he had traded 10 years. Now the bio says 8 years. Looks like DTA has gone affiliate central more like John Carter and the Busby's. More access to marketing refinement and help in "polishing" up the website.

Thanks for sharing, apparently this guy is still trying to sell his junk. He contacted me in a chatroom under username jh, pretended to be new to trading CL and asking questions for help on it, and I spent time answering his beginner questions. Then he asked for my email for more, and emails me from <eddie6006@gmail.com> saying his name is eddie, sends a couple 'OMG, CL' emails, then signs me up for his trading room/webinars without asking, which came from dave torry/marcello arrambide.

The worst part was his sales pitch, it's so bad it's hilarious. He asked for my entries/exits earlier in the week, when I sold 93.70s, scaling in on the way down, covered this morning at 91s. Then he tells me made 20 ticks today, and he's going to invite me to a room where they "PREDICT THE MARKET LIVE!".....lol.

If you want momentum... why would you enter at equilibrium? You have significantly better odds of profit by paying attention to your MACD and price pattern divergences and getting in on the confirmed failure of mini trend off the MACDBB's. The physics of mathematics, man!!!... and psychology... Overexuberance will seek rest at equilibrium! Zero line is exhaustion of trend as is the midline

I saw the main man at a natural food/coffee shop in Medellin last week... still sporting the dopey ponytail... So wanted to do the "top bun clip"!

Hi Lady,

Try this, about BB's
https://youtu.be/MqvotVMEMN0

This to get your basic about MACD (watch all 3 parts)
https://youtu.be/OR8vwFv-5iU

I mean look up more, I spent like 2 days reading and watching and testing, just for BB's and MACD. But all the indicators that the DTA uses should really be good to master rather than looking at your 200 MA, 89 EMA, and the Zero line on the MACDBB. Their material pretty much says if one line crosses another, or your price is at MA, and you are at zero line take trade. Nothing in terms of understanding the hows and the whys.

Well it's clearly very appealing. It's the 'dream lifestyle' so to speak. But one needs to go beyond that I think, and just work out what it is they are trying to sell and why.

Emmett Moore of tradingschools.org hasn't done a review of DTA yet, but he had this comment about it so far:

That led me to JLTrader | Serious about Trading ... good read on the DTA... also, good nuggets on his side... not verbatim, but as a good encyclopedic sampling of knowledge.

ah yes, not only the infamous pump and dumper/shorter, affiliater, somtimes trading "educator", but also the creator of "investimonials", the site where every
scam site can fill the reviews and commentaries with fake plants. This shows how unfeasible he makes a living as just a daytrader.



On "investimonials", DayTradingAcademy is averaged top 10 rating, where there are only five or so (usually 1 to 5%) real reviews
out of 127 not counting the stuffed rebuttal or promotional commentaries. Fake reviews and fake comments and the real reviews
can only be seen by picking "lowest first" otherwise it's always masked out by the drove of plants by default settings.
Every scam site including the "top 10" get away with this there.
