Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I never quite got there during that period - I'd now say I hadn't sufficiently resolved various psychological aspects of the trading puzzle (an ongoing process in my case) - although what I learned still totally informs the way I trade, even though what I do is much more basic and far less efffective. I still review his recorded webinars from time to time.
Barry posts his trades in real time (at least he used to) and is a master trader. I have met him personally and would certainly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to daytrade. Whether he fits an individual's needs or personality is up to the individual to discover. I have not communicated with Barry for many years, but as you can tell, I have the greatest of respect for him. He doesn't suffer fools gladly, but always did his utmost to try to assist sincere subscribers. Way back when, he used to post his daily results to his site - I think he stopped as he was criticised on places like Elite Trader by people who refused to believe someone could consistently make multiples of the daily range day in / day out.
I've written more than I intended and better stop before someone thinks he's paying me... and please remember, I didn't say it was easy...

They mainly trade CL (oil) which i do have experience trading with already.
They charge $399pm which i feel is steep. I have attended the room on a 1day trail but they do not go over reasons for entries, exits etc as the room is only in text(no voice) calls or explinations for entries. The room does open in the afternoons where they go over the trades entries, but u are not aloud to enter this as a trial member? which makes it difficult to get a feel if its suits?
Having said that i would like to hear from people who have traded or are trading with Bontade for there thoughts
