Joe D.

“Dan O’Brien is hands down the best trader I have ever seen. It is a pleasure to learn from you guys. ”

Dmitry

“No universal method works for everyone but Dan managed to light that bulb over my head and show how to read the context. The execution of his method is solely each and everyone’s responsibility.

”

Derk K.

“I signed up with these guys after trying many programs and spending a boatload of cash. Their methods are easy to follow and the support is comforting. The rooms are full of running commentary that allows you to follow and learn as you go.
 I highly endorse the program and feel it is money well spent.

”

Tom B.

I joined the group this summer and I have learned a new way to trade futures. I don’t think there is a better method for trading. The help and learning materials are top notch. It is not easy but trading futures is never easy. It takes a lot of work and study but the outcome and income are tremendous.

Ray H.

I’m a newbie and quite enjoy the instructor’s course. I’ve signed up for the long haul and have learned a lot already. Reading the materials is one thing, but the course makes it come alive and explains things better. Teacher Patrick is also entertaining in his approach. And he certainly can pick important support and resistance areas to trade against.

Ross R.

I have been a member of his chat room for 4 months now and can say it has been a really great learning experience for me. I would recommend his education to anyone

Jim L.

I am still in the process of learning the trading techniques. Patrick is a great teacher and I have learned much from him. I have made a few trades, but overall I have not been profitable. I am looking forward to receiving the new Market Profile manual.

Derick M.

The material is presented in an easy to understand way. If you put the time and effort in to learning it you should do well in trading.

Steve H.

I subscribed to the teacher’s lifetime program last November, after having been with them for about three years. Was very new to the trading world when I found them. Its been the best thing that could have…

Matthew W.

“Dan, just wanted to say that this Carnac program you created is freaking awesome. You still have to be patient but wow this is awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a high win ratio.”

WHY DO WE TEACH FUTURES TRADING

There are many markets to trade and whether you are a trend trader, a swing trader, day trader, or scalper, you must choose a market to specialize in. The major markets that use the aforementioned trading styles are in either the stock, futures or Forex markets. One must choose a market to become a specialist and we believe that the futures market is the best. Trading baseball cards doesn’t count.
There are certainly more reasons than the following to make the argument that futures markets are better than the others, but the following are a few good reasons why we choose futures.

  • There is no pattern day trading rule in futures that would stop you from being an active trader. In order to be a “pattern day trader” in equities, you must maintain a minimum of $25,000 in your account.  There are no such rules in the futures market.
  • The stock market is open roughly 7-hours per day; however, futures are open 23-hours per day.
  • Futures are traded on a centralized market, the CME, whereas stocks and Forex are fragmented.
  • If you want, or need, to trade early because of work requirements, futures allow for that in many markets. For example, currency and crude oil futures both have regular starting times before the NYSE opens.
  • The S&P 500 futures market is not susceptible to poor earnings reports, buyout rumors, or downgrades. When day trading individual stocks, however, these are potentially very risky issues.
