Thank you guys!

I am trying to read the books, but they are a tough pill to swallow I'm hoping with visuals things will fall into place easier.

If you mean the Brooks books, they drove me out of my mind.

The course is less dense, although it does have that certain Brooks character .

It does require patience.

Bob.

Ive read some things about Wyckoff and am there are a few very nice threads here on it. Would you know where to get an affordable course?

If you look close at it here and on the other resources that I mention, you will find some educators that teach his method and approach.

And if it affordable or not I honestly do not know because I have not done the courses myself, I only have and read some of his books and learned from here and from what is available for free over the net…

The original Wyckoff texts are public domain and readily available online. Also, check out Davd Weis' book at Learn the Richard Wyckoff Method of Trading from David H. Weis

I was starting to doubt a bit because I do see more trading journals based on PAT


I think this is right, but probably partly attributable to the fact that some are older, and Brooks' video course is much more recent (and easier going) than his books which are "famously heavy going", whereas PATs more immediately approachable to a wider range of people.

Personally, I'd go with Brooks, though, and expect to have to work at it.

When I used to watch the daily PATS videos he never showed his actual trades - it was always hindsight drawings on a chart (no trade markers).

Mack seems very genuine (at least from just listening to him) and his daily videos are free. But to me it is a bit concerning he hardly ever shows live trades, not even consistent recordings.

Probably 2 years since I watched his videos daily.

Yes, I enjoy all of his videos, and have learned a lot from them.

I could say the same for his books, at least in terms of learning from them. But the books are notoriously difficult, even though they also are full of valuable information.

Hi Guys!

I'm interested in doing a Price Action course and I see the main two names mentioned are Mack (Learn How To Day Trade Using Pure Price Action - Price Action Trading) or Al Brooks (https://brookstradingcourse.com). Which one is better in your opinion and why??

Cheers,

Giacomo

I don't think this is something anyone can answer for you.
Each of them have their strong points and weak points.

Also, who says you need to choose?
Why not take the parts that 'fit' you from each and from the many others that also 'fit' your style.
The best trader is made by trading the way that works for you.
Al, Mack, Peter Davies, Don Miller, John Grady, or any number of others.
I think each one should be studied to create a trading method that works for you.

Besides, what is best for me should not also be best for you.
I am unique and so are you. Develop a system that is you!

I can imagine, I'm going through the course material right as we speak and we have hours and hours just about channels. This is going to test my concentration

I used to watch the VSA videos on youtube but was getting irritated by the fact that its one big advertisement for the software. However the videos on here about the Wyckoff method are great and I think that volume in general is a great addition to any methodology. I'll continue to read about it and follow some of the threads (I especially like how @Feibel of th S&P Chronicles analyses his days) but I'm looking to more of a hands on approach in regards to learning.

Yes I completely agree with this statement. I consider myself a Supply and Demand trader and am trying to further my knowledge and education, never stop learning. I think the error most people make is that want someone else to come with the perfect entry system which is just a small part of your success and then they forget to look at the whole picture.

Thank you everybody! I wasn't expecting so many replies and genuine help, I've been hanging out on the wrong trading forums I guess, I'm almost getting emotional. Futures.io is beautiful. I've decided to go with the Brooks course and in a future after I am done with the 83 hours of video, from my rocking chair most probable I can read Mack's stuff.

Cheers,

Giacomo
