Its a soft sale, I have not received any email since I stopped his trial service. I have read fulcrum/amt4swa/5Pillars for a long time if you just read all his posts you have a roughly idea of what he does without buying anything from him.

I contacted Chris asking about the live trading room and he advised that's available for $99....I can tell you that from watching all his videos on youtube that just sitting in the room and learning from him is worth every penny.....
will join his room soon....

never fear any vendor, if the product is not up to par and fails to teach anything new, then those looking and asking for advice should have unhindered advice about the product they are asking about.. plain and simple..
I dont expect vendors to be mods.. and I believe that @BigMike's whole point of ensuring that vendors dont have much influence is to allow those participating on the forum to express their opinions openly and truthfully, yet in a very professional manner without disrespecting the vendors... the day those basic guiding principles change, I am sure to exit this forum.. I dont foresee that changing based on what I have seen from @BigMike.
I have personlly spoken to Chris before, and I have taken his courses as well. The reality is that his method is just that, another method.. which works for him and might also work for others. The other reality is that he basically has shared his method pretty much openly on his webinars and videos, I mean... all it takes is to study what he has published... the other reality is that his stuff is not all that expensive... I mean compared to others, the $700-$1000 I spend on education to learn and understand what he has was not a waste of funds from my part as it allowed me to see volume and inventory from a different perspective.
I did not find any value on attending the vegas trip, it was just not my cup of tea. The videos that I purchased were more than sufficient for me to understand the method, and take what I needed from it.

1) I plan to ask Chris to come back and do another webinar. I would only do this if I thought it would be helpful to futures.io (formerly BMT) members. If you attended the last webinar you will see he was not selling his system. The purpose of the webinar was to educate. I think this sends a clear message of what Christopher is about.
2) Not all vendors are evil. Contrary to popular belief, some wish to help others. It has been said that no one would want to give away their edge for free. I disagree, but see point #3 below.
3) I am of the belief that the main advantage to any vendor method is structure. Structure in learning, available structure for Q&A, and ultimately the structure provides accountability which is likely one of the most important and motivating factors.
4) Paying money tends to add some accountability for some people. However, it should be noted that some people believe paying money to a vendor means they should do nothing but sit back and watch their bank account fill up. So I think that if you avoid the scams and get rich quick, holy grail type systems and vendors, then you can learn from just about everyone else. If nothing else, you will learn what not to do -- which is still a valuable lesson.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
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 own both his main Cummulative Delta course and his Momentum course-- IMO both are very good . In fact even though I've traded for some five years with increasing success,I'd go as far to say that this net ask.v. bid traded volume thinking has been the 'missing piece of the jigsaw' for me. I've personally found it so useful that I have now transitioned to Investor/RT so I can have the Volume Breakdown tool ( Market Delta and I believe Ninja are alternatives ) .
If your a serious trader the price is, as they say here in the UK, "cheap as chips" --!! Previously I've always majored on TradeStation and own a multitude of specialist TS systems & indicators a few of which I'm currently working out how I can port to I/RT.
Christopher himself is a very polite,self-effacing ,unfailingly helpful chap and always answers my questions by return e-mail. I don't like trading rooms I'd rather fish than be fed ................... so I cannot comment properly on his, although I did visit it twice to just get a feel for his live trading observations --seemed friendly relaxed and valued by the members but not my thing.

good luck with that piece, RTL is great for simple stuff, but that is what creates the problem.. simple things means one has to create lots of simple/custom components to include into a chart to have what one single indicator could of otherwise have painted.
I concur on this with you, I dont view the rooms as signal generators (though that is how most people seem) ... I rather view them as good realtime tools for analysis of the method... if I can see on my own chart what the person is saying and explaining, or if I can get ahead of the person, then I know that I am learning the subject matter in question...
but overall, I dont care much for chat rooms... not everyone is as focused on them ... and they tend to trail off with non-sense at times.. which drives me
