From School of Trade website about James and Ninja Trader:

The root of SchoolOfTrade.com/SidewaysMarkets.com can be traced back to the earliest promotional efforts of NinjaTrader Brokerage/Ecosystem. In fact, for several years, NinjaTrader Brokerage/Ecosystem was the feature promoter for SchoolOfTrade.com/SidewaysMarkets.com.

Ninjatrader Brokerage/Ecosystem exposed their prospective customers, numbering the thousands, directly into the arms of these scam artists.

Some readers might be thinking to themselves…”Oh, there he goes again, picking on NinjaTrader”. Maybe I am being unfair. But in the past 2+ years of writing reviews of trading educators, the reoccurring theme is that the overwhelming majority of trading scams are originating from the direct promotional efforts of NinjaTrader Broker/Ecosystem. Sorry folks. But that is just the reality.

Until someone starts calling out NinjaTrader Ecosystem/Brokerage, they are going to continue with their terribly irresponsible promotionalal behavior.

A statement labelled as "fact" that is just completely false. The fact is that this vendor was never listed on ninjatraderecosystem.com. NinjaTrader never promoted them.

There is a big problem with folks who claim to be "trading site reviewers"...

They go in for a day or two into the thing, for a couple of hours, and come out with "tons of experience" with the place.

This is patently wrong. You have to spend a few years inside the bowels of a trading site, day in and day out, to finally understand what they are all about. You can't get the gist of a place with a few hours over a couple of days attending.

This is basic common sense. Have we all lost common sense? Eeek.

You Tube

Now we need You Tube to take down all his videos as he has over 19k subscribers in there.

All his Trade of the Days have been in Market replays and his Webinars have been selective market replays too.

Hrmmm. You could probably do that if one could get a legitimate copyright claim on his vids that fall outside of the Fair-Use clause of the Copyright Act of 1976.

I'd like to think that anyone that unfairly slanders a corporation or image or whatever would be exempt from that clause.

Your comment is kinda confusing to me. You know he's referring to reporting School of Trade to Youtube, right?

Ninja and Schooloftrade.com

Shortly after I joined school of trade (closes eyes and cringes internally) I wrote an email to ninjatrader asking them why they did not have JJ as a vendor/contributor and was told that they were not familiar with that vendor.

I wanna say that was in 2011/2012

Interpret that however you want, but it was one of the first things that tipped me off to something smelling a little scammy with this guy; so I don't think ninja is to blame for anything relating to this particular case.

However, cough, cough, I could suggest a few more vendors you should probably not be familiar with...

Not so. He's on the "Explore the Eco System" page here under "NinjaTrader Education Partners". Right in the middle.
