1. I have completed the opentrader course.
2. I've done plenty of other courses too, some of which were BS and some of which were valuable
3. I think the information provided overall is excellent but remember there is no holy grail in trading. At the end of the day if you can master the person in the mirror it does not matter what methodology you use, you will have a good chance.
4. The best parts I got out of this course were the self development aspects and on what areas you should be focussing on to improve your bottom line. The fact that some posters here have been talking about lack of specific details on exact setups seems to miss the point entirely and I won't expand on that further.
5. I personally trade a mix of price action, market profile and order flow. My trading has evolved over time and I hope it will continue to evolve. I am currently using the eminplayer.net monthly service as more of a learning tool and a check of my levels than anything else. I am aware of the randomness of lines as I have done Adam Grimes' course but if you have done the opentrader course you'll be aware Ziad and Awais know about that randomness just as well and do talk about it.
I will not be contributing further to this thread and I will not answer any pings on this topic. I just wanted to state my opinion.
The following 3 users say Thank You to hoolio for this post:
For those that have taken the course and have said they have benefited, it would be useful to know by how much their trading has improved. I can easily say today I feel much better than yesterday, but it is a vague sentiment, and no real meaning can be attached to it.
If you have taken a course and feel it aided your trading, then that should be measurable in the bottom line, some average percentage increase in your earnings should have occurred in the subsequent months (all other things being equal).
Else this thread (and I have read it all) is pretty uninformative to anyone wishing to make a decision on whether to take the course or not. Concepts are fine, but I would imagine no one reading this board is studying to obtain a Masters in trading theory, it is only the $$$ that count in the end.
you have to ask this question...if the person in the room can trade...why would he bother with pain in the ass students ( the answer is simple ... he just teaches trading... he can not trade ... to day trade every day you have to under stand current market conditions... like a air plane pilot....they may be able to fly under clear conditions...but they can not fly on instruments .. it takes 10 years or more with a lot of help to do that. }
