Anyone heard of Aaron Korbs? https://www.tradacc.com/

This is not an endorsement however I was youtubing and stumbled upon Aaron. His vocabulary is very like Morad's but he doesn't mention Morad. He promotes volume-profile. He uses a lot of Morad's catch phrases. Just made me wonder.

So far what I have heard is ok.

Iíve watched some of his videos, stopped watching after getting the impression he was taking futurestrader71 ideas and promoting them as his own.

Seems legit, he treats trading like a business. He's a volume profile trader and the jargon tends to be the same. I've only watched his free stuff, but my understanding is in his paid course he shares his playbook, helps you develop a trading plan, and then he livestreams the morning session for you. It's important to note that his setups rely heavily on the developing profile which means that it's going to be a bit more challenging to diagnose/review your trading as the profile in the morning is different at the end of the day (but I think that's what the livestream is for). In terms of profitability, he did a challenge where he grew a MES account into one that could average $400/day. He succeeded, albeit he did leverage a bit. If you are a developing volume profile trader, that video series is a good watch as he goes into his setups and rationale for taking his trades.

Personally, I tend to shy away when a trading vendor's website contains verbiage such as "to see if you qualify" and "Hurry up as the seats are limited and our calendars are filling up very quickly."

I'm not saying anything negative about the program, and I've never watched any of his videos, but pretty much everything you need to know about volume profile is freely available across the interwebz. There's a ton of info in the elite section here on FIO, a complete thread dedicated to it, as well as a number of great videos and posts by @FuturesTrader71 himself.

He made a video that made me pause about immediately discounting him where he went into psychology/performance and talked about how the separation between being profitable and not profitable is incredibly slim. He did this by drawing an analogy from professional sports and looked at the stats between the best and almost best. It's a little click-baity and verbose, but it's a very good watch and I've watched it a number of times.

There's a very big difference between learning about a tool and actually being able to use and trust a tool. If the former were true, there would be many more profitable traders. I'm not endorsing Korbs, but I'm not discounting him simply because he offers a paid product with less than transparent marketing. His channel suggests to me that he's not just a talking head.

Exactly. He does seem serious about this and I don't begrudge people getting paid for their time & expertise. On the flip side, what do we have that we were not given? Give credit where credit is due.

When I caught a hint that he might be a student of Morad's, I was hopeful that there might be another perspective available on Morad's work. Being able to see an expert's methodology adapted or explained by his students helps one absorb some of their experience. He mentioned a mentor in one interview but left him/her unnamed.

Watching his youtube, he seems to be profitable, but since we didnt see all trades from his $400.00 challenge, we just have to take his word for it.

He probably learnt his method from Morad, since he has a collage of famous traders he respects, Tudor Jones,Soros,Dalio,etc... and FuturesTrader71 (which one doesn't belong) no disrespect to FT71

I was a little annoyed that you have to video chat with someone to see what the course is about and if your eligible and get the price

To save everyone time he offers a volume profile course and chatroom. He livestreams for around 2 hours from the market open for 4 days and the 5th day he reviews the week, and twice a week Q&A.

The Price is $3000 for 1 year

Now compared to Convergent Trading, which is FuturesTrader71's baby

Chatroom and forum, with one chatroom that is listen only with 4 head traders including FT71
twice weekly webinars about different subjects
marketstats reports, chart definitions,stalkzones (levels that might be important during the trading day)(i don't know if Korbs offers this)
Convergent has no course, but instead, alot of key webinars. (It would be good if convergent had a course plan. Its like a puzzle , they give you the pieces but you have to put it together yourself

The Price 100/month or 850/year

I am a member of convergent and would of joined Korbs chat room if it was reasonable (he doesnt offer the chatroom/livestream by itself)

When I began to consider a Convergent membership, I was hoping for a methodological approach from FT, not terribly formal but a path, so to speak. Korbs seems to be more "path" oriented. I remember teaching my young son about things, sometimes I just had to take his head in my hands and gently point him at the thing to focus on. I had decades of experience but I wanted him to see what I saw rather than "put it together himself".

Hello traders,

Just to set the record straight, there is no association between Aaron Korbs and myself or Convergent Trading or Edge Clear. He was a Convergent Trading member and isn't any more. His views and what he is doing is completely separate from me.

Happy new year to you all!

He appears to be both a great educator and someone with a really solid grasp of trading. Rare... and initially confusing. His videos have impressed me... and there aren't many guys out there showing broker statements... that says something in and of itself.

I get why people would be conflicted about him though. He is a very good salesman/communicator which sets off alarm bells (rightly or wrongly). Why sell this shit so hard if you could just trade well and live the dream? Well I suppose some people really do love teaching and building community. There is also a shit tonne of money to be made selling a service if it is any good. So why not?

3k is a lot... but if you wanted to make profile your thing it might be well worth it. If you can speed up your learning curve (in the right way), you probably should. The question in my mind, is would you learn at a deeper level if you just read a few good books on Market and Volume Profile... and then mindfully watched 10,000 sessions develop in replay and took fiendish notes. Or, you could do both, so that you have a baseline context or lens through which to view the developing profiles and price action, and maybe you would learn faster. I dont know.

I am suspicious of this post. Comes out of the blue talking about him being a great educator, salesperson, showing statements and all. Korbs is that you?

No dude it is not Korbs... just another guy who is zeroed in on profile concepts at the moment and looking for good information. There isn't a whole lot of practical stuff out there.

Put it this way... I wont be buying his course as I am far enough along that I won't get that much value out of it. I'll do the hard yards and watch as many days in replay as I can to internalize the dynamics involved. But that is all in books if you are willing to read and then study it live.

I've never paid 3k for a course and never will. Crazy to me... but for a beginner who has plenty of cash? It just seems better than the other scammers out there who clearly have zero f*cking idea about real trading. My girlfriend had a mate who paid 25k for a course once. It blew my mind and made an impression on me (I was prop trading at the time), so maybe I have a soft spot for pointing beginners in a direction that won't be a total scam, where possible.

At the end of the day it is just levels, bias for trading style, and being able to adjust on the fly with new information. He seems to give a framework for this which is a good way to go for a newbie.

He could be full of it, who knows. Just sharing my first impressions.

Iíve taken his trial and watched him live trade several times. I do believe he is the real deal. In the sense you can gain some great knowledge from him.
