Once your foundation is in place (beginner videos) and you have a feel for strategy, tactics, and money management (experienced videos); you’re ready to figure out your realistic trading strategy (what suits you best; what you will actually have the courage to do with your precious real money).


MENTORING is a premium, paid service for those who wish to engage with me one-on-one.

Some of the reasons you might want to consider this service are:

  1. To discuss your trading strategy
  2. To trade together
  3. To ask questions
  4. To critique your trades and results

The cost is $100 per hour

A. One hour minimum
B. Can be divided into two half hour segments.

Mentoring is done over Skype using screen share.

In person mentoring is available; details upon request.

Please use contact form (click here) for inquiries and bookings.


Besides mentoring, as a premium (paid) service I offer a bundled set of three real time helpers:

1. Short 3-5 minute webcast at the start each day

  • 0-1 minute recap of important events (if any) last 24 hours
  • 1-2 minute critique of the prior 24 hours trade view / ideas
  • 1-2 minute trade view / trade ideas for the next 24 hours
  1. LIVE trading room
  • Be informed in real time of possible (probable) upcoming market moving events such as important scheduled news events and critical “chart points”
  • LIVE trade calls to help you flex your risk taking muscles and absorb the ins and outs of having a real trade on
  • Pick up clues of how good traders think and how they act
  • Ask questions to gain additional insight and clarification of specific LIVE trades – yours, mine, and other traders in the room.

In the LIVE trading room you’ll get the support you need to learn and become a better trader. The end game is better ideas, better timing, and better results.
