  1. I have been a member for only a couple of weeks and my improvement as a trader has been fantastic. The School of Trade team has worked with me to improve my consistency and correct my biggest problem from before becoming a member - OVER TRADING. The members only training from this week really got me on track. I made 60 ticks today on only 3 trades! Thanks to the School of Trade team. I will continue to post my progress and highly recommend becoming a member of the School of Trade team!

  4. Hello Joseph,
    I just wanted to let you know my thoughts.
    I think your trading system is the best I have traded and even just as important or more so is that you are SO FAIR on not charging more. I have traded a number of "systems" and have learned a lot but they all want more MONEY to keep them going.
    SO THANKS AGAIN

  5. JJ is an excellent educator as well as leading trader. SOT is the awesome place for trading education. The James wave trading method is excellent and great system which can easily be understood. The members are trained on how to be real professional successful traders. If there is any problem in understanding anything, JJ always helps and answers all the questions in very best way (by email, trade room or skype). I have been gaining some success on my demo by taking my own trades. I will post another review once I move to my real account. The fast track program helps the new traders to easily catch-up in the room and developing confidence in taking our own trades. I strongly believe using the James Wave system I will gain great financial freedom :D Thank you JJ! You rock! I always get excited when I trade or talk about trading and now losing to put sentences so tried my best to submit a good review. I’m getting excited while writing this review too because US market is going to open in short time :P Prince M. Golds.

  6. After emptying my bank account of $30,000, paying four trading gurus, 2 intensive years at 10hr x 6 days of training-trading-mistakes, I finally found a Master Trader who is VERY real in his approach to the markets and has finally helped me make money. Truth is only 10% succeed in the markets and I think 90% of them are in JJs trading room. His system will take a little time to master because it is both realistic and very tuned in a direct relationship to the markets. It is comprehensible, responsive, and predictive to real time occurrences while others are gimmicky and removed in approach that only appear to be right to the novice. I switched to School of Trade when I saw them make $1600 on the same markets and same days as I lost $1,400. If I had started with JJ, I'd have been 2 yrs ahead with a full bank account. By the way, I'm a Law and Theater teacher and I give JJ an 'A' for his ability to instruct effectively. Big Eddy Canuck

  7. Josh Here again.

    I wanted to update my progress here in the feedback section. I have been a lifetime member of the SchoolofTrade for just over a month now. I have been patient per JJ's recommendation to learn the methods and put together a trading method that works and fits me based on the School of Trade methods. I now have a great method with specific rules all thanks to JJ and the School of Trade.

    I have spent thousands on trading education and many thousands of dollars in trading losses during my first year of trading....then I found JJ and the School of Trade. This has changed my trading from losing to consistent profits. I was just a few months away from having to go back to corporate America and get a "normal" job. Thanks to JJ and the School of Trade I am on pace to make a lot more trading than I ever made in corporate America with a B.S. in Engineering and an M.B.A - The best part is I love what I do and know my income potential is unlimited compared to what it was at a "normal" job.

    One last update...I made 109 ticks today on 7 trades with only 1 contract per trade. I had 5 winners and 2 losers. I used the fast track program JJ teaches with the specific tweaks that I have worked on over the past few weeks to get the perfect trading method for me.

    If you want to trade for a living and a very very very nice living you need to become a lifetime member of the School of Trade!

    Thanks again to JJ and the School of Trade. My journey as a trader is just beginning and I know my lifetime School of Trade membership and JJ's continued mentoring will keep me successful from now on.

  8. I started the course of Joseph in late June. After a month and a half learning the rules and trade live room watching your every day I realized that everything he had done so far in the world of trading, little has seemed to reality and truth of what we want to teach . I spent a lot of money on courses, operating in the markets and finally may have found a way to do something in my life with the trading. Joseph is the person who taught me about trading in such a short time, I have yet to launch into operation with a Live account, but that is from the month of September, which put into practice everything I learned qu. At the moment it is wonderful to see every day I learn more, and that that language is a problem for me because my English is very fair, but still, I learned more with Joseph than with other people who speak my language. Thanks Joseph for your course, for your dedication to students and for teaching us something that might not have ever learned in the world of trading.
    I hope that my dream is fulfilled and can soon become a new trader for real.

  9. Hi JJ,

    I just read through the Fast Track Program and I am very impressed. I
    also want to thank you for coming up with it, this looks like something
    that can really help me.

    Thank you

  10. Hello Mr James,



    I had the pleasure of attending your three week free trial and was completely blown out of the water with your live trade room and all that you offer.

    I unfortunately spent my hard earned dollars on the wrong program and I am sure this is not the first time you have heard this tale of woe. However I did want to personally thank you for all the information on your web site as it is quite extensive and the content and information is very informative. I also thought the comment that you made in the trade room that the education component you provide in the live trade room is as important as your live trade calls. Once again thank you for all the help you offer to struggling traders.

  11. JJ is great in the Trade Room, and in training and there is so much great material both in the members area and on the blog. It does take some time and effort to learn all this for us noobs though. The Fast Track system makes a lot of sense too, I just wish there was a beginners trade room where only Fast Track signals were traded until we could graduate up to JJ's room. It would be super helpful for some of us who need a little hand holding. Keep up the good work JJ. Edward

  12. For the past couple weeks that I've been checking out Joe and SchoolofTrade.com I've been very impressed with his knowledge, skills, and passion for trading and to help others. I'd recommend his service to anyone wanting a solid foundation on which to build a trading career.

  13. Hello Mr.James,

    The James Wave System was already the best system in the market and you just made it even better with the addition of your Automated Trading System at no additional cost to existing members.
    I thank you for your mentor ship. You are an exceptional educator and from the bottom of my heart I thank you for all the hard work you put into transforming aspiring traders into self sufficient successful traders.

    JJ,
    I have been following along in the chat room everyday for the past two weeks. It is a little overwhelming the amount of information you need to be aware of and at the same time disciplining yourself not to over trade.
    I just wanted to take a moment and thank you personal for being there and teaching so many people a way to get back on their feet in this extremely difficult economy. It is obvious you have the skills and discipline to trade large accounts and not bother with teaching,but everyday you let us in and show us the way. I know for a lot of us it is a big decision to pay for the course and become a life time member,but so is any education. The only difference is, this actually guarantees you a real skill to make money and create your own job. So thank you for giving back.......

    Sincerely,

    Blair Sorby

  16. THANK-YOU!!!

    I'm really excited about this past week and driven to keep going! I'm going over the videos again and again and getting more from them each time. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help and determination to continue. Please don't ever give up what you're doing!

    Thanks for your patience and professional character in the "room". Even with questions you get asked a million times and guests that irritate, you keep calm and don't loose your joy. I'm thrilled to have found you; what you teach is priceless and you're the right man for the task, what a combo!

  17. Hey people, Tomcat in Florida here,..Point number one, YOU WILL MAKE A LOT OF MONEY BY LEARNING AND TRADING HERE, now my story,….I’ve been studying, learning, and trading here with Joseph James at this School of Trade (aka, JJ at S.o.T.) everyday for about 5 months now and not only was it the best career move I made in my life, but it KEEPS getting better with improvements to already great strategies and indicators almost every week. In addition to that, there is no more,… sucking up to the boss,… no more trying to sell something that someone don’t want to buy, …no more trying to get along with fellow employees and their attitudes,…. no more burning up my car to go to work, in essences,… no more putting up with anything that I don’t want to put up with. It’s called self reliance, being your own boss, making the kind of money that no one will ever pay you as an employee.
    Hence,. I strongly recommend that people should stop whining about their unemployment and financial misfortunes and put their destinies in your own hands and learn, while they earn, exactly how to be a profitable trader with JJ at S.o.T.
    Never a dull moment, like in all the other rooms I’ve been in, where they try to play dumb, old top 40s rock music between trades, or crack stupid jokes they think are funny, or worst yet DEAD silence between trade calls,…uhhhhggg
    JJ is the essences of Cool, .. he has found his passion as a trader and as a teacher to get you pumped as a student to learn stratagies and to recognize patterns.
    He is a physically fit endurance athlete outside of the trade room which spills over to his never ending energy and stamina in the trade room.
    I initially signed up for the 3 week trail, but by the end of the first week, I couldn’t help but JUMP at the chance to JOIN so I could get access to ALL the course materials, charts, and etc.
    Here’s a little secret,…I have found my preference, which is to learn with JJ during the morning, and use those skills to trade late at night when the Markets slow down as it gives more time to make sure that everything “lines up” to make all those successful trades,..and successful trades = mucho $$$$$$$$$$$ dinero ,...get it,.. See you all in the S.o.T. Trade Room

  18. Hi Marko here From Colombia, First of all i would like to thank JJ for the opportunity of being part of he's trade school.. I;m a middle class Colombian that has been looking for different types of income and i can say that the one that has work the best for me it's SCHOOLOFTRADE.. Even though English is not my first language i can a sure you that JJ makes it very clear on how to use he's trade method, i have to confess that the only times i have had troubles in my trading is when i choose not to listen to JJ, for me the hardest part was to set my mind set for trading... I have tried a lot of trade school and i vouch that risk per win ratio there is nothing better than this one. I read in a book that to be successful in something you should be around people that are expert in the filed, well i guess i found that mentor in JJ... besides the course pays for it self so i can actually say you got nothing to lose, well except the opportunity to make money and have the best education ever.

    Again Thanks to JJ and all hi's staff.

  21. Another FDAX question for today's (05/25/11) member training:
    Q1. I downloaded for today's trading the "Dax & Euro futures correlation set-up" document.
    The document did not state any conditions under which it is valid. Is it that generic simple valid ?

    Q2. i have a hard time to correlate the Eur the the FDAX, sometimes it just seem to be uncoupled or even oposite - rising Euro causes falling FDAX. Are these exceptions from the rule?

  22. JJ you are very energetic and knowledgeable teacher who, first is about teaching then he knows by doing a great job there that money will follow for him and others. If I have any constructive thought it would be that during the morning trading it would be ok to have periods of silence while watching the market get to it's next entry/ exit point. If every second is filled with talking sometimes I need to think and turn off my volume while making my own decisions with JJ thoughts thrown in here and there. Looking forward to many more successful trading days with JJ and SOT. TCB

  23. Hello Joseph,

    It took me almost a year and a half to finally decide to join your service. I tried just about every other “expert” trading service out there and they ALL fell short. After eighteen months of confusing and vague trading strategies and services, not to mention the countless hours put into learning them, I finally decided to join School of Trade. For the first month or so after I joined your service, I was in the room pretty much every morning soaking up all the information you were teaching. When I first joined I really couldn’t understand why you do your membership the way you do. I thought a monthly fee made more sense and was less painful. HOWEVER, I definitely saw the value in your services so I bit the bullet and joined. I was wrong. The lifetime membership is an incredible value and JJ is an awesome teacher. I don't know ANYWHERE else you can, IN REAL TIME, watch the teacher consistently (I mean EVERY DAY) show you trades that make money. There is NOTHING else out there like this. I would sign up again in a heart beat! Thanks JJ!

  24. I've been searching for a trading program that would teach me to become a successful trader and came across School of Trade about 3 weeks ago. I was instantly hooked!. What impressed me was the vast information that is on the blog and also opportunity the 2-week trial gives a beginner to see exactly how joseph James trades and creates money in the market every day!. He is a genuine person who wants to help others succeed, his energy and hard work is what made me decide to join!
    look forward to future success as a trader!

  25. The ability to inspire your students by being passionate about what you believe in is an amazing quality. JJ and his SOT has it in Spades. That quote from , " The Little Prince", " What is essential is invisible to the eyes" is what I think of when I hear JJ showing with passion and caring all of his great trading methods. THe vast amount of trader resources he has put out there and his webinars day after day with so much information has to make you wonder, that he isn't just doing this just to make a buck. People that just do that would not put so much into it. YEs, folks the " Invisible" is he cares. The best teachers are this way. I hope one day I will be able to help as many folks as JJ is doing right now.

  26. Hello JJ,
    I want to thank you for sharing with me your knowledge and life experience as a trader.
    I was given the opportunity to assess how efficient and accurate were your calls as well as the daily results posted for the time spent with you.
    I was able to catch several weeks of struggling with only few of your trades after joining your room.
    Your training classes are probably the best. It is as well easy to see and feel how passionate you are...Passion is a key for every success....In life, we get both kind of results the bad and good, however, your positive trading results are by far superior. I wish you success and want again to thank you for all...Your student

  27. I join the Live trading room for 4 days now and JJ was so careful to pick his entry points, go over different charts find the right support and resistance..etc, and today is the day he found Gold Vol change to DEC, so clear and systemized, he also prove his mothod works. For this I decided to join his life time membership. Thank you JJ.

  28. Dear JJ,

    Just thought I would drop you a line to update my progress after two weeks as an advanced member
    I have been studying while travelling Latin America so it has been quite fun to say the least!

    • I completed all videos: Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced.
    • Managed to set up Auto-trader on my own! But to be safe got Kyle to confirm.
    • Setting up charts and using chart trader I have also managed with no issue that I could not overcome. I find just repeating watching the vids sorts most things out.
    • Reading tape is something I love, I used to watch the Dow ticker tape on a chart when I was practicing and find I have a natural aptitude for that and short term price movements.
    • I am now just focusing on learning the patterns and mastering the drawing tools as this is very new to me.
    • I understand momentum being over b/s and find that a great tool.
    • I am not starting Fast Track until I know the patterns because although very tempting to sit in on you and be a sheep, it’s hardly a productive exercise.
    • But, my synopsis is that I think that to keep it simple and blend fast track with multiple contracts (when ready!) and some scalping will suit me. However, as you know this may change as I progress!

    Many thanks for all your hard work, I am extremely pleased I made the decision to jump in and it seems it will suit my lifestyle of travelling around.
    So, no complaints from me.
    Keep up the good work.
    All the very best.
    Ben

  29. As of this writing Aug18/11 I have been a School of Trade Member for about a month now. I had been watching JJ's daily wrap up videos ( and still do) everyday. I was amazed at how thorough and consistent his trade practises were and his passion for Day Trading and for wanting to teach and share his experiences. I have struggled from the beginning due to not being able to connect with a broker due to where I live in the world. The other issue was, I also am still working full time. What I didn't realize was how extensive his Advanced Members Videos were, just how many tools and information he has assembled at School of Trade. There are so many detailed videos and learning it all , if you are new, will take time , but it is all there at School of Trade. His Blog with Trader Resources is unbelievable, and his daily trade room is like being in a Traders University. Seeing his commentary and watching live is worth its weight in Gold or Crude!! I don't think there is anywhere out there that is as comprehensive as their site is. Really there is so much information and help, if you sign up, you will be very happy. The extra bonus is Joseph James is a natural born teacher, he loves what he does and it shows in his voice, as any student knows a passionate teacher is what makes learning both enjoyable and profitable.
    My goal is to get out of my job and ultimately help others in life, with his system and his support people at SOT I believe this going to happen.
    It will be the best thing you ever do if you become an advanced member.

  30. JJ,
    I want to thank you for your time and dedication with making me a profitable Futures Trader. I have spent a lot of time (a lot of wasted time and money) on other programs and this is the first program that has consistently made me money (if you stick to the plan). My objective is to become a full-time Trader and I am quickly on my way to accomplishing my goal with your system. Your morning prep is by far the best out there, I use it religiously to mark my charts for the day and they have been accurate every time. I am impressed that you continue to improve your training and indicators, which has further solidified my decision to join. You (my friend) are one that I can say has a true abundance mentality, you want us to succeed and you gain your strength from our victories. As a trainer, a coach, a professional Trader – you have accomplished much and you have much to be proud of.

  31. JJ,
    I have to tell you that I had a tough day trading this morning. But I did take that 34 crude wave that you mentioned around 11:30am. That helped, also took a 21 wave long around the same time, I rode that for a while. Then, because you have taught me well I waited to sell the high of the russell at 692 and rode that down for a huge winner. So thanks for being a great teacher and I guess if you haven't hit your max loss then its never over. What a great day it turned out to be!!!
    Thanks

    When was the last time you took a chance when it came to not just what you're worth, but your sense of self worth? When was the last time you crawled out there in the wind, onto a limb for an opportunity to not just invest in your future but in your dreams? Before you shake your head and click away, check this out: I'm not shoving over-hyped, under-confirmed sales talk at you here... I'm a rookie and a member who paid top dollar to School of Trade. I took a big chance and invested a significant portion (over 1/4) of my trading kitty with Joseph because I recognized pretty quick that he: works like a dog, loves his job, and has a really healthy bank account ;>) Hey, if you just want a trade calling service then you'll do better than break even with J, but if you are willing to do the work, I mean get in there and do your chart prep early every morning, but with a live, highly motivated and extremely professional and accomplished individual with a personal stake in your success, then you will really go places with School of Trade. If you are willing to make the best of the tools you're provided with membership to establish market personality each day and decipher your best possible entries and exits, with the help of always-on skype and email support from a professional staff, then you will do even better than I have.

    I'm new to this game, though I'm not entirely stupid or completely green, yet I've doubled my initial trading account size in three months and made enough extra to move my family to Europe and feel confident enough to send my wife back to University to finish off that elusive degree. Best of all my success is not a flash in the pan but a repeatable, reliable way of doing business that I understand, feels comfortable and that I can take with me anywhere in the world and use whether markets are going up, sideways or off of a cliff. No sh_t guys, this is how the pros do it. Thanks Joseph & SoT staff, thanks a lot."

  34. This website is full of advice, training and JJ's enthusiasm is incredible.

    I understood that we must progress and assimilate by step.
    Understand the basics.
    That's what I'm doing now.
    I registered in the basic course and I will continue rapidly to the next module.

    I love the blog, morning prep.

    Congratulations on this website

  35. I just had my 1st day in the room on my trial and can see J.J. is quite knowledgeable. I'd like to hear from Josh, Robert, Richard and any of the other posters who posted back in 2010 (or anyone that has been with JJ at least a few months)to tell me how they feel today, in the present, now that they have so much more training under their belt. This should be some exciting feedback! Cant wait to get in the room again in the morning.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I found the methodology used in the room to be quite interesting, but it appears to be more of a scalping style and I do not want to take even 1/2 as many trades as JJ does in the room. Scalping is not for me. Plus I dont have the temperment to watch more than 2 markets at a time but I was intrigued by the room. No complaints.

  37. My friend Jose and myself are extremely pleased with the help Kyle has given us in the Concierge call because we are both far behind in computer technology/language and to implement the Auto Trader would have been for us a nightmare, but thanks to Kyle and the Concierge call we are able to work with the Auto Trader which to us is amazing.
    Fernando E. and Jose L. U.
    Thanks Kyle, Thanks Joseph

  38. I thought I'd follow up, as a member who has been attending the trade room 5 days a week and implementing JJ's system via the extensive training materials and live support now for, oh, just about 6 months now.....


    ..... and I am pleased to report significant progress in my trading abilities, substantial increase in my bank and broker balances, and a very positive outlook for my future as a trader and SoT member.

    The guys have been there every step of the way, and the trade room is a pleasure to have as the basis for my "workday". It is not to be used like a plain vanilla calling service, though I take many of the same trades that Joseph, the moderator and SoT principle, takes (with an approximately 75%-80% sucess rate). What I mean is that the service is presented as a full educational package, and the trade room is an opportunity to take part in a rigourous and disciplined trade routine that gives you a relatively safe environment in which to deploy the system as you have chosen to learn it, use it. Trades are called, but in the context of an environment where the focus is on understanding market personality, honing in on specific opportunities, and developing disciplined and repeatable trader actions so that when you pull the trigger you have much better than a 50/50 chance of taking profit. New traders and 'lost traders' (system swingers) in particular will find an excellent touchstone here. Everyone else should attend the room in a trial and judge for themselves how the system, routine and disciplinary excercises might fit into how they already trade.

    The new auto trader product is interesting and when used as a method of entering trades, while using practiced and intermediate level trade management, may prove to be a lucrative tool for many. Personally I am finding success in my first week running in demo account and anticipate using on a full time basis. Probably worth the cost of membership... for me.

    SoT has exceeded expectations 6 months later and has been critical part of a change in my financial situation for the better. Much better.

    Hi james,
    You are bleesed. You are not just good at what you do, but do it with never ending positive energy and passion.
    There is no impossible for you - just challenge. You never give up. If something goes wrong even after a hard day you say – interesting. I like that attitude this mentality not only helps us to keep learning your extensive trading knowledge but also shows us a great example about life in general and about a winning mind set.
    Joined 7 months ago, still „challenge” to be in the positive territory, but its not your fault, no blame here. I take the responsibility for my results and working hard on my weakness. Discipline. My success at times depend on my ability to conquer frustration. The market does not tolerate if someone forcing trades, so I keep learning my lessons. Following your way of thinking about the market as a friend and not an enemy.
    Thanks to your guidance however, I never lost big and not jumped in too early to kill my account. This is also a result not as good as making a lot, but still in the game. More than that very optimistic about my trading carrier with your support. You have been giving it all for us members, with exceptional dedication. The rest is up to us. In trading we all against our bigest enemy ourselves. I will succeed just takes me a bit longer.
    In October I got my first winning month, not a big one but winning. Most importantly in the last two months my discipline dramatically improved.
    THE COURSE IS A GREAT VALUE, very comprihensive and specific. It also flexibly tuned to the ever changing market conditions, so much information that took me a while to learn it all, actually still adopting.
    THE ROOM IS PRICELESS. Although I attend only twice a week for a simple reason: want to learn how to fish, not just eat the fish you catch. This way probably takes longer in terms of $, but will be more stable in the long run.
    Closing with your saying getting better every day „if I don’t improve, I moving backwards”

    All the best
    Frank

  40. I just pasted my 1 year anniversary with SOT! What a life changing year. My background is in finance and investing with a different focus. I had much to learn but did not know it! What trading has done for me is make me aware of my strengths and weaknesses . . minute by minute . . trade by trade. I thought my background would have translated more to this profession than it did initially. The main thing that transferred, was my arrogance! I thought I could replicate what JJ does in the room in a short time . . turns out, that did not happen.

    I lost some money and ate some humble pie . . a nice large piece mind you . . and then I really listened to JJ. I heard him just fine day after day in the trade room. But the fact of the matter is . . . I did not LISTEN to him. My advice, is do that. Do not think you are smart enough to skip steps. It just doesn't work. I have yet to talk with JJ about my most recent awareness. . . turns out the 10 tick fast track is really a good idea!!

    I did not try any other schools. After being in the room for a week or so, I 'ponied up' to a lifetime membership. I understand how commitment and success are connected. Nothing speaks to commitment like laying out a few thousand dollars! I also teach on-line classes in finance and know a good teacher when I see/hear one. JJ is very dedicated to this study of trading, inspired to help his members, and genuinely wants people to succeed. In addition, he wants to keep learning and growing his own abilities and his firm's services. I started trading for the money, now I am learning trading for the challenge and excitement of what is next and JJ will provide many offerings for his members!

    I feel very fortunate that I started my trading career here. The support staff (Kyle!), Perry and the group are so very responsive.

    Thank you JJ and SOT . . .

    Sincerely,

  42. I highly recommend getting the advanced course up-front! It comes with everything including the advantage of hearing JJ's morning prep on a daily basis. This means I can get the daily dose of motivation to continue studying the wealth of material JJ offers to both guests and members offline.

    I'm a new Advanced member and wanted to take a minute to say I'm loving
    what you have done with this course. The amount of time and energy you
    spend with students daily is incredible. Well worth the investment.
    Thanks for the great course material.

    Ps. The new method of answering support questions during training videos
    is great. It has answered many questions I had.

    Thanks again

      It looks like you have been on the auto trader over three weeks. which markets do you trade with it and what is the biggest dollar draw down that you have experienced thus far.

    4. Hi Cal, my auto trader has never had a very big drawdown since I started using it over 90 days ago, and I would highly recommend you start learning to use it every day along with the Fast Track method. its been working great for me. Dave

    5. When using the auto trader do you have to be at your computer the whole session? Let's say you have to run an errand will it be okay to step away or not? Based on my readings seem like you just set up your charts, etc and the computer takes the trades.

      Delete
    6. You do not have to be at your computer 24 hours a day. You can either let the computer run and take the trades for you, or you can even select the 'pause' option and pause the trading while you are away. We can customize the way this auto trader works for any needs.

    8. Dave, Thanks for the feedback on the auto trader. I just joined the advanced membership on the 9th just before quad witching week. I am studying the fast track method and hope to have the auto trader up and running in sim mode soon like you mentioned. I am still hoping to get the past auto trader results for just January and February of 2012 for the bonds, euro, and the S&P. Cal

  44. I just joined SchoolofTrade.com as a member and I must say I could not be more impressed with the detailed instructions provided in this course. $4200usd is a fraction of what I personally would charge my clients if I provided ALL of these resources with no monthly fees, but I'm not complaining! The best part, I made 50% of my registration fee back this week using the auto-trader scalper on gold and crude oil, way too easy, loving every minute.
    Can’t thank JJ and the team at SOT enough for this opportunity, this is truly something special.

  45. I just signed up a week ago and really didn't know what I was getting myself into. I joined the room a few days during the free trial and seemed to be a lot of complicated information to digest. I studied the method over the weekend and am pleasantly surprised to find the method is simpler than initially thought. I have already incorporated some good nuggets into my own trading. Seems to help. I look forward to continuing to be patient and understanding the method more thoroughly.

  46. Thanks for the feedback!!!! When you look at other trade rooms they charge at the minimum I've seen $200+ a month so the price of the advanced course is a better deal since it is a one-time fee!!

  47. I came to SchoolOfTrade because of a friend who kept insisting that I at least take the free trial. He has been a member about a year or more. I have been swing trading options and have had to tolerate my friend's greater success day trading futures with the James Method. So, after months of his insistence, I figured it couldn't hurt to get up early one morning for the free trial. Within an hour in the live trade room, I was impressed and convinced. I am still having to put up with my friend's daily totals. But, as a new member, I intend to catch up as quickly as possible.

    As a clarification, my friend sends both his wins and his losses. So, I have a very clear picture. His net is enviable.

Brand new to the day trading world, but I can assure you that what Joe offers you in SchoolofTrade, you will not gain from any college course, text book, or any other educational course you find. I am learning so much and retaining it all because of Joe's UNIQUE style of educating. I've been watching him in the LIVE Trade room for the past few months or so and he makes the experience so worth my time! He has made me eager to learn more and manage my time, so that I can take advantage of this rare opportunity. If you have committed to this program, you are hands down making the smart investment and if you haven't yet...WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!!

  50. After watching in the trial membership for 8 full days, I decided to join as an advanced trial member Friday the 9th and paid my subscription. I am very excited to join JJ and the SchoolOfTrade team. I am waiting with much anxiousness to get all of the materials to start my training on the advanced membership. I wish that I had joined on a Thursday, so that I would have had them and been able to put them to use this weekend.

  51. As a member I would like to say my experience with School of Trade has been really exciting.
    I’ve traded my own accounts for over 10 years but wanted more technical knowledge and wanted to study the futures market more.
    I bought a SOT membership and never looked back.
    The school's impressive structure even provides proprietary charts and indicators that work seamlessly.
    I use the live trade room as a market commentator as I place my own trades that fit my own trade plan.
    My first impression of JJ was that he was extreme....and that was what I liked about him!
    I remember the first day he was even talking about what a trader should and shouldn't eat!
    JJ is a natural teacher and a talented technician. He has a genuine desire to help others learn.
    Perry was also very helpful and patient with my first thousand questions (LOL) in their sales office...thanks Perry!
    I have done well with School of Trade from day one and have been “hooked” ever since. If you like trading you'll
    love School of Trade!


    Happy Trading!

Anyway , this has been the best investment i have ever made for my trading career , JJ is one of the best teacher and motivator i have ever had the pleasure of working with . There is so much material to use to your advantage its almost hard to believe that it dosent cost more . I would recomend this program to anyone who wants to learn how to make money with a small invesment . Im on my 4th day of live trading and i have just about made my membership cost back . Now remember you will not get rich , but you can make a very good living working for yourself for a few hours a day , you tell me where else you can find freedom like this .

  55. Just finished my 2 week trial and like many other, I have tried others and spent thousands on other trading programs. Something is way different about the way JJ runs his business. I have owned my own business for years and it took me a long time to figure out that there is a LOT more to owning your own business. You don't just show up, punch a clock, and leave. You have to work on your business, in your business, continually learn and improve. If your going to be successful you have to be passionate about what you do, and you HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN! This is the first time I have seen this from a trading program. Anyway, I signed up last evening to be a lifetime member and am so looking forward to developing my plan and becoming successful.

    thanks

    2. Ok!! I was thinking $10k + that's what I was told in order to have some leverage! It wasn't from a SOT member.... I'm assuming since you have a percentage to have a low drawn down on your account it doesn't require much to start out then?

    3. We just up-dated our auto trader track record for 2013, very strong returns this year so far. You need $2500 in your trade account to trade 1 contract on the auto trader, and each contract earns an average of 200-ticks per month

    1. It took me 4 weeks to earn back my investment. I have a daily goal of 30-ticks per contract. Yes, shadow-trading is very easy. You shouldnt have any trouble getting your investment back, just follow along in the trade room, you will be fine.

    2. I am going to join very soon. I really want to average 10 ticks per day. I currently get 10 ticks per day in my own system but I really like the idea of trading in a trade room with other professionals. The cost is easily justifiable if I can get 10 ticks per day. Is this a reasonable expectation?

    3. Hi AJ! Sorry for the delayed response, I was trading with some of our students in Boston earlier this week, awesome experience for everyone.

      To answer your question... YES... 10-ticks is a great goal, and with $100 a day and $500 a week you can easily double a small $2500 account in 1 month, and then the next month you are shooting for 20-ticks a day.

      I have a plan for you to start with 10-ticks per day and be trading for 30-ticks per day in 30 months...it only goes higher from there.

      I am always here to help you if you need specific information.

  65. JJ,

    I am looking at getting started with the auto trader, how much is needed to trade 1 contract on the auto trader, 2014 is right around the corner and I am not sure if it is $2500, $5000, $7500 or $10,000 per contract? Can you advise?

    Thanks,

    1. Hi Kevin! Thanks for the comment and sorry for the delayed response I have been trading in Boston with some students this past week, it was a great time for all.

      to answer your question...I recommend $2500 for every contract on the Auto Trader, this will produce an average of 200-ticks per month per contract, and you can go higher from there.

      If you have it, I would recommend at least $5,000 to start. With $5k you can run the Auto-Trader at the same time while you trade live with us in the trade room. You will be able to use them both this way.

      Either way you slice it, $2500 is the minimum I would start with, and with that you can trade using the Auto Trader OR our strategies in the Live Trade Room.

      I am always here to help you if you need specific information.

    2. JJ,

      Thanks for the quick response. My thoughts are to start using the auto trader first, see how that goes (not sure if I am to use the flex or trend auto trader) then shadow trade in the room daily. My thought/plan is to have about $32K (8 contracts @ $4k each) for the auto trader (not sure if trend or flex at) and then leave about $10K to trade in a separate account as I get a better grasp of things. So is that a reasonable level for the auto trader the $4K per contract? Will that allow enough room for the auto trader?

      Thanks,

      Kevin Thomas (FL)

    3. HI Kevin! I think you are over-thinking this a bit. It's very simple. I need $2,000 per contract for the Auto Trader or Shadow-Trading (discretionary) in our trade room. If you have $5,000 you can begin trading BOTH with me today. Sounds like you have more than enough capital to trade with, so let's get you started and lets get to making some money!

  67. Hello SOT,

    I am looking at getting started and was wondering when working with the auto trader (I see daily stats on the different markets, ie. Gold, Crude, S&P, Euro & sometimes heating oil) is one able to trade different markets? For example two contracts gold, two contracts Oil etc assuming one has the requisite funds in the trading account. If so can one also trade using the flex and trend auto trader software? Basically, can one trade two contracts gold on the trend at, two contracts Gold on the flex, and one contract S&P one the trend and one contract S&P on the flex all at the same time?

    1. Hi Steven! thanks for reading, watching, and posting this comment!

      We suggest you trade with $2,000 USD per market for each strategy you want to use for the auto-trader.

      With that said, if you had $10,000 in your account, you could trade 5 contracts (2k each contract) and that can be spread across different markets or strategies as you want.

      Example, I could trade 3 contracts on Crude Oil FLEX, and then trade 1 contract on Gold, Euro and Russell on the Breakout. Does that make sense?

      As long as I allocate $2,000 USD for every contract I want to trade I can slice and dice this a million different ways.

      Most of our students start conservatively with $2,000 trading the FLEX for Crude Oil and Gold because those are our best long term performers.

      Can you call us in the office so I can explain more? 800.381.2084 / Skype: SchoolOfTrade

      You are correct, as long as you have the $2,000 per contract you can trade any combination you wish. I will be here to help you get it started and make sure you're using it correctly from the first day.
