I've personally attended a few of Brett Steenbarger's private sessions and found them totally useless...

I do admire his ability to yawn without opening his mouth

Hi Oriole,

Thanks for asking.

Frankly, I can't answer this question for you as my answer has a conflict of interest built into it (I run Convergent). I also want you to know that I don't see myself as an educator or mentor. My vision is simply to build a strong community of focused traders who want to become career professionals. There are grander plans, but I will discuss those when they are implemented.

My advice to you is to ask around. Otherwise, commit to just 1 month before February 29th (prices will be adjusted as beta will end then). We don't provide specific setups or some written out plan. We discuss attacking the market from various angles, but you will ultimately have to find what makes sense to you and make it yours. This will take time and a lot of support. This is what we provide.

Best of luck!

Thank you. I'm joining before the end of the month. I listened to a few of your AMA You Tube Videos and thoroughly enjoyed them. Great stuff.

Thats really too bad, his posts on trading techniques are generally superb imo, for ES.

But back to FT7,

He has a huge archive of free videos covering numerous trading related topics (volume profile , order flow, bookmap etc..) some are exceptional . I like the way he looks at volume profile , interestingly , he tends to dismiss vah/val, I agree with his reasoning for what it's worth.

he is a practicing psychologist, the idea that he knows anything about trading techniques is laughable
he has successfully tapped into this cottage industry of performance coaches and he does work with the largest trading firms, if one is into that kinda thing. there is certainly something to it but i do think most people (including me) get into the psychological aspect of trading way before they understand trading or have some kind of strategy. and when psychobabble doesnt yield better results (how can it by itself ?) it becomes a self defeating negative feedback loop....imho

With all due respect , I don't see how you can say that. By your own admission you are just a begginer.
His trading posts definitely have value, we can discuss specifics on a different thread , this one is getting derailed.

Why not start another thread , I will chime in for sure, write down your experiences with him.
I don't think people should spend money on pyschological coaches until they have developed an edge and traded it in the market for some time , imo.

Members are reminded that this thread is about Convergent Trading and FT71, not about Dr. Steenbarger.

I just counted 9 recent posts (one of which was mine ) in which Steenbarger is at least mentioned. Some posts are just informative, some express some opinion about him, pro or con.... But 9 posts out of a current total of 46 is 20%.

It's fine to bring up something or someone else from time to time during the normal discussions of a thread, but this is getting to be a full derailment.

Please move back to something more on-topic, and reserve opinions and discussions about Steenbarger to an appropriate thread.

Thanks.

Bob.

Maybe it is a case of Soul Walk-Ins. Sometimes a soul will agree to walk-in and reside in the body alongside the original soul as partners. Now the big question would be who is FT71?

What is a typical day or week as a Convergent member?

I am thinking about joining but I am a little sketchy about what Convergent offers.
