I’m currently taking the TechniTrader course and am in the paper trading phase. I would like to hear from anyone else out that is using or has tried the TechniTrader system. Thanks

I sure haven't, but I have heard from friends and colleges that it is a waste of money and energy.
If you want to learn the real thing, then you must play the real thing. I am sure that if you spend the same kind of time just investigating the real market and finding the answers to the specific things you don't understand as they arrive in time, you would be way ahead.
good luck

Larry focus on the info.. It does work all of it. Back test the information and you will see. The people it does not work for are the ones that are not using it correctly..

Traders are made of personalities, not courses. Most of the basic needed info can be cheaply acquired from books - some is hands on experience. I do not know a single soul who has capitalized from any courses because of the course itself. The few I know would had capitalized with no course at all. It is you not the course.
Good luck

I like a good step by step course, I studied my brothers course "Gann" it was more effort than I wanted to put in at that time, profitable at times, I still find it useful. I read all the Elliot Wave I could find, when I found Wyckoff's Method of investing, active trading etc... this was what I thought a good course should have, a step by step from the introduction(I refuse to read or study introductions after this course, it was complete) to advanced, with a short options introduction, and tape reading and active trading as a extra for any one with the extra interest. this had taped(no cds at that time) training to go over as much as needed. it was professional, tests were graded( that wasn't always great)questions were encourged. after the completion, there were market letters, phone messages, and later some faxes. I enjoyed the phone messages, my attempt to write my thoughts before I conected, was a good learning process. for me it was great, I admire those who can learn from a book, for me it always left me feeling I missed something. maybe the revised edition???:)s

Well put everyone, Techni-Trader focuses on buy signals backed up with positive inicators. I find the most reliable buy signal to be the spring board..Look at ECIL for a good example I am making a fortune with this right now.. will sell end of today. CCUR is a good spring board the indicators suggest a buy now or tomorrow morning..And you are right in what you said BigBlock it is ones own style and experiance that makes the trader.I just thing Techni-Trader is a good beginers learning tool..

Good trading to all..

I've been trading for about 5-6 years and have done alright all things considered. I looked at the technitrader free DVD and found it had some interesting things. After a long while and much consideration for the cost of the course, went ahead and purchased it - was tired of the losses and trying to find the right stock to play and when to paly it. The course has really helped with buying signals, using indicators etc. Not necessarily something I didn't know before, just more refinement with a few different twists. I'm just now finishing the course and have started to trade again. Time will tell how valuable the information and training are...if I stick to the course/plan. I plan to do some position trading until I can build my capital back up some and then move on to swing trading. Flipping penny's everday is fun but can be a lot of work. Think I'll stick with position trading for right now. GLTA

Man those are heavy words! You are one bad dude.

Remember Newton's 4th law of motion.

The growth in one's portfolio is inversely related to the amount of trading activity in one's account. This is actually compliments of the Sage of Omaha.

I am finishing going thru the cd's for the 3rd time. I think the course is great and well worth the money. The way they tell you to enter buys and exit saved me plenty since I switched. There is plenty of good info from history to product cycle, to how to read the general market. Plus their stock scans have found me more winners then I have been able to buy. The money management and stop lose rules save me so far. I think they give a good set of rules to trade by and followed as prescribed it's great. I mainly swing and some position trading. They will give you sets of rules for any style including shorting. I am very glad I bought it.

Hi guys. Ten years after your last post, is there anyone who wants to share his experience of trading, armed with Technitrader knowledge? Has it been worth it? Is it still valid?

I have taken a few of the Technitraders' courses. While I have not made my money back yet, I think I have gained valuable knowledge of trading. I would say that I am not a fast learner and have reviewed the courses several times over. Each time I review the materials I always find something that I missed from before, or now have a better understanding because I have had the chance to practise and fail. I will say that my not making any money thus far is frustrating, but it is also my fault as I was not following the instructions  as laid out. I started out fine, but I guess I contracted "Procedural Drift". I was not utilizing the student support. I was not referring back to their wiki files with enough frequency. When I finally looked at their wiki files I had noticed that a lot more content had been added  than I saw before. Last fall  (2016) I finally sent an email of frustration to the support team of why I was not achieving successful trades of 75% or greater. I was contacted immediately by the support team via email, then by phone to review, and  evaluate my knowledge of the materials taught with corrections or suggestions following. That call helped a lot and gave me more structure and focus on the materials. One thing that I found that helped me is to print out, screen shot, highlight, and comment  on the charts  for referral later on. By the way, that is one of the things  that Martha mentions to do. I was not doing that before.

What I can say about Technitrader is this; I did not know a lot about the stock market and chart analysis until I took their course. There is a lot of content in each one of their courses which requires multiple viewing and reading. I now try to utilize the student support before I get to deep into my mistakes. I now subscribe to their Daily Market Education report which is an additional cost, but I am learning through that venue as well. Worth the money to me.

Technitrader definitely has a defined process, and methodical way of teaching their programs. I can see this being difficult for an experienced or knowledgeable trader who has had some success in the market and having their own method of doing things. I say to that; If you are going to spend the money then you need to be the student with an open mind with material and procedures, and let them be the teacher. I am fortunate as I did not have a lot of experience trading. Some of my trades worked some did not, and I wanted to learn why.

 I hope my reply helps whoever is reading this. I have invested a lot of money into the Technitrader courses and therefor hopefully myself and my financial future. That being said I am ALL&hellip;.IN. By the way I live in Canada and the Canadian dollar is about 70% of the U.S. dollar. So I pay 30% more, plus banking fees for Technitrader courses and subscriptions, and TC2000 subscriptions than my fellow traders in the United States. 

I could say more but I think I have said enough. Everything I said is my experience and my humble opinion.

Juan
