On each of the first two "independent reviews" websites I've looked at, the most glowing review of this service was posted by someone called Praveen, and I notice from The Intentional Trader's own website that apparently someone called Praveen also works for them, and indeed has an email address at their domain provided as a resource for members having problems.
Maybe a coincidence, I suppose? Or perhaps at the time of posting those reviews, Praveen was simply a loyal and enthusiastic customer, and was subsequently offered a job with the company? No commercial trading vendor would plant any deceptive or incentivised reviews on the web, to try to counterbalance some of the really bad reviews they also get, right? You can imagine what kind of impression that would create. Or maybe a malicious competitor "planted" those reviews specifically to try to create that kind of impression (or is that "too deep"?)?
It's much more incentives than that. I did the trial as well, over a year ago I think. Pravin is the early morning room host and I think he does tech support as well. However, he was a room client at one point and he was still trading when I did the trial. Super nice guy. So is Tony. And I think he's Ho est as well. I believe the I at system works bUT it is very conservative.
Tony put me in touch with existing clients who said nothing but good things. Some of them have modified the system to their needs and are more agrees I've and still successful. I think one of the things Tony focuses on is accountability and practice. Those are not bad things but membership is not cheap either.
If you think that, do you also think he should edit the "independent, objective reviews" he's had published on the web to mention that he's also an employee of the company, so that they don't appear deceptive in intent?
Naturally - would he really give out the contact details of people who might say the type of "bad things" that some online reviewers have mentioned?
I had signed up for Tony's room many ago and Praveen was one of his early students. So was Lisa. I know Praveen wrote a review on Investimonials back then. He did not work for Tony at that time. And Investimonials is an independent site so I don't think he needs to go back in time and amend early reviews he wrote as a client just because a few years later he joined them as an employee. Now if you are talking about a Praveen review on the actual IT site, then I agree it would make sense to put that caveat in.

I hear you, man. You are preaching to the choir for the most part. I've paid my dues in sucker tax, but I made those mistakes. My point is that Tony is the best of a bad lot. Is his marketing copious and suggestive of an elusive dream? Yes, I think so. I think he's better and more realistic than most.
What's really interesting is the existing customers I spoke to. It was _because_ of those conversations that I never signed up. It's tough because I don't want to say too much, but one person was successful because he adapted Tony's approach and from his feedback, out performs IT.
His compliments for Tony were about the mantra to be patient, to make and follow the plan, to execute this approach flawlessly. In essence, more a coaching for that specific customer who was already more successful trading than his teacher. I witnessed this message in the room myself.
Another IT client I spoke to trades nothing like Tony. He returns to the room for the environment and messaging as well. There's a lot more I could say on this particular topic, but I cannot.
What I left with was Tony is an honest guy. He actually trades but is extremely risk adverse. His coaching and messaging is constructive and helpful. Even for people that don't trade his system. I personally felt after the trial is too much money for what I would receive. I'm past the indicator thing now so I cannot rationalize spending ridiculous money for them.
Like buying the best wrench will turn me into a plumber and impart the knowledge I need to unplug my toilet. It's absurd.
