PAT vs Al Brooks

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

Brooks.
Price action training..More analysis...More expensive but again very cheap compared to other educators that sell expensive courses with 1/4 of the info you learn with brooks...it covers in depth...many hours of edu videos....analysis each day of ES

Pats.
Price action training...Not in depth... 100 pages or so manual ...teaches a specific scalping strategy with small targets and scaling out...no videos included...but on youtube analysis of each day on ES playing his strategy so you compare your own analysis with his..I have heard he was a student of Brooks.


I would go with Brooks because you get a better education on how markets work based on price action

What I describe above for both....is not an in depth opinion in your question but you get the idea

Thank you! That's pretty much all I need. I already have a methodology and strategy, I am just interested in furthering my education and specifically market context and how markets work.

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

There are many other names when it comes to price action/price behaviour personally I would suggest and look for Wyckoff as well, Richard D. Wyckoff.

There are threads and webinars about it here, articles on stockchart.com and videos on YouTube etc all free plus there are some books about his method as well.

After 5 years of losing money, Al Brooks price action methodology has turned things around for me. That doesn't mean much though - I have the highest respect for any trader that is consistently making money based on whatever method.

Brooks is not easy - I spent easily more than a 1000 hours studying, validating, looking at charts and more to understand the how, the why and the when and I'm still learning. However, I'm making money now!

Brooks is not easy

I pretty much agree with the views already expressed, and especially this one: "Brooks is not easy."

Just be ready for some very dense material, not always clearly explained the first time around. But at least the ideas will be repeated (and again, and again....)

I think it is worth the effort, however. In the end, it makes markets much more clear, in my experience.

I thought PATs is a somewhat trimmed-down version of Brooks. I would go with the original, just take it a step at a time. There is a lot of material there.

I hope this is useful to you. Good luck with it

Bob.

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.
