Your welcome Vajatin. Thanks for the mention. I should add an update. The optionsincomevideos offer an ok value for
the material. But today I would recommend newcomers to options to try out the "Liz & Jenny" show on tastytrade.com ( https://www.tastytrade.com/tt/shows/LJ ) which is now free to watch with registration and their older shows are all archived and available. They are on every weekday during the lunch hour of the trading session and use ThinkOrSwim for all their trades and examples. They also have a teaching segment of their hour long show where they cycle through for beginners.

Well folks, this is my first post... a week ago I did not know this site existed... Am now an Elite Member.... Wish I joined when it was $25. So far, joining futures.io (formerly BMT) is my largest expense.
Have not made a trade so far.... Have traded Stocks, Forex and options (spreads)
Still trying to determine if any of these high dollar training programs are worth it... Leaning towards the "No"
Spending a lot of time here and watching PA youtubes.... Mostly "PATs Price Action Day Trading"
over a year ago i took some time to share which trading products i have bought and for how much. back then i was still hopeful that the customizedtrading.com products i bought would deliver, thus my review was overly optimistic, i think an update would be warranted now and it could be valuable for those who are considering buying from them.
+ mark david johnson's - multiple time frame price action indicator - is useless. the only way to trade profitably is to get the trend of the day right from the very beginning. that, or to have a nimble indicator that reverses while the loss of your first trade is still small and can be recouped handily. customizedtrading.com's multiple time frame indicator often puts you into a wrong first trade and then doesn't reverse until too late when the trend you went against is actually now over. not only that, it draws with a lag of one bar, so you don't have a value for the bar that is being currently drawn, at the end of the day it might look very nice with all the bars drawn but for live trading it is useless.
+ i also bought their - fully automated multiple time frame price action strategy - and as it is provided it will wipe out your account. the supposedly "turn key" strategy is meant to be run on kase bars but the code doesn't execute correctly on kase bars; all entries and exits execute a bar late so getting even a small winner is actually a fluke. it also takes too many swings, on flat days when price is going nowhere it keeps going long at the high of the day and short at the low. all in all i spent $10,000 which i was expecting to recover in trading profits within months but that just won't happen.
there are magnificent free indicators that work great like the keltner channel and heikin ashi bars. as for automated strategies, i guess the best way to go would be to not buy any product that does not allow for a trial period. there are a lot of superb resources that are freely available on tradestation's channel, on youtube, in public trading forums like bmt, in tradestation's forums, if someone puts in the time to find valuable stuff, they definitely will.

Hi Budfox, Glad to comment. I tried a trial for 60 days. This was maybe three to five years ago. It wasn't a good experience where we just had a few webinars. Also hard to even try out his short list suggestions. Maybe Sykes does know how to trade for himself, but his offer through WIA (wealthinsideralliance) was really a subpar program. Not to mention he was a really young guy with too much of a teen vibe and showing off his girlfriend having her heard in the webinar too while they were goofing off. I had to fight to get the refund to my CC sending them captures of all my sim trades showing them to be losers. (some WIA support email person) I know Sykes does other programs or whatever and is always controversial re: his supposed training of retail students in whatever program he comes up with next. There is far more info and threads about Sykes' current activities on elitetrader.com ; I decided to leave well enough alone and search elsewhere re: swing and stock trading.
