About Trading Schools.Org

Trading Schools.Org Is A Blog About Trading Products

Trading Schools.Org was founded in 2013 as review website that provides unbiased and honest reviews about all sorts of trading products. We write about trading educators, newsletter providers, trading software, live trading rooms, brokers, etc. We dig up the dirt and relentlessly hunt for the truth. We have nothing to sell. The entire site runs on income from Google Adsense advertising. We wont write fake reviews about fraudulent products hoping to make a quick affiliate commission. We will also give you the inside scoop on the best and brightest trading products available.

About Our Reviews

We are not here to hurt anyone. If we write a bad review, this is because we genuinely feel that the product is poor. And we will gladly rewrite any negative review if the vendor makes changes or argues a differing opinion. In fact, we wrote a blistering review about a certain live trading room (even called the owner an outright fraud). The owner cleaned up and we rewrote the review and now highly recommend his product and service. Nobody is perfect, and everyone deserves the opportunity to do better, and be rewarded with proper acknowledgment.

The trading software and education ecosystem is constantly changing. What was an excellent product last year, and we had written a positive review might now be a poor product. We will fearlessly tear apart and report any poor performing trading products. What might of been an excellent trading platform in 2010 might now be a substandard trading platform. We will write about it. What might of been an honest broker for 25 straight years, but then begins to show problems, we will be the first to expose the problem. We will also be the first to show you excellent new product developments that are true game changers. Things like the low cost Jigsaw Trading Platform, which is an improvement over the industry standard $1200 a month Trading Technologies X Trader. And futures brokers like Zumo that offer the lowest commission in the industry, for the retail futures broker.

No Fake Reviews

No Fake ReviewsOne of the major problems with trading product websites are fake testimonials and fake reviews that are posted on 3rd party sites like Investimonials. In fact, to prove our point, we created an imaginary live trading room and listed it on Investimonials, we then flooded our fake product with reviews written from a block of unique IP addresses, the IP addresses were used to create the illusion of unique reviews. None of that nonsense here. Our reviews are expertly written by people that understand trading, and that actually are traders. Our reviews are not an exercise in group opinion. They are singularly written by someone that understands trading.

Getting The Smoke Out Of The Kitchen

We record a lot. In fact, since the summer of 2013, we have recorded over 6000 hours of live trading rooms and webinars given by trading room operators,ย indicator salespeople, trading system marketers and anyone offering a trading product. We have a bank of 15 laptop computers running Camtasia screen recordings nearly 24 hours a day. We record everything. We prove everything that we write about with stone cold video and irrefutable facts. We have signed up for literally hundreds of mailing lists, we catch collect and record every single marketing email from every single trading promoter on that we can find. We know the methods used, the sneaky underhanded disappearing promotional pages used to trick consumers. We know the real companies that constantly put out useful information that provides real value. We know who has set up Facebook accounts and purchased 1000’s of Likes from fake Facebook profiles. We have seen and heard it all. We record everything.

We have some good news, and some bad news.

The bad news is that 95% of the trading products on the internet are plain old snake oil meant to hustle you out of your hard earned money. If you think that there are regulators from the FTC, CFTC, NFA, or SEC that care about you and are there to help, then you are sorely mistaken. The regulators do not have the resources. Dont believe us? Try and call any of these agencies and find a person to register a complaint. Good luck. Thats the bad news.

The good news is that there are some genuine trading products on the market that so good that we quite simply cannot believe that anyone would sell the goose that is laying the golden eggs. Some trading vendors should not be selling an indicator package or a trading system, they would be working at the Fed or managing billions of dollars. Yes, we have found some vendors that are that good and more importantly, very honest.

You don’t have to be a loser at trading.

Unfortunately, we all start out trading as losers. Nobody starts out winning. We all start as losers, and we typically get worse. Then we start looking for help. We become desperate and want to believe. And then most become trapped in a never ending cycle of marketing nonsense from an entire industry that specializes in selling us fantasies about trading glory. The problem is that the cycle repeats until the aspiring trader is fleeced out of all of his available trading money. He purchases a flawed system, or indicator package, or educational package, or trading room, or trading mentor, or whatever the newest zany crazy thing promoters dream up. In the end, the aspiring trader is left with nothing but a busted trading account and an education in alchemy.

But this does not have to be your journey. Yes, you can make money at trading. And once you learn how, you will be amazed at how fast and how easy you can earn a fantastic income. We have seen traders that had blown through $200k trading accounts and $100k in wasted trading products, the experience led to depression and divorce. We have seen those same traders come back and start anew with $5k and parlay it into over $3,000,000 over a 5 year period. Yes, you can do it. But you need to stop buying all the BS on the internet and get your self educated by people that actually trade for a living, not people that just talk about trading for a living.

Thanks for reading.

Emmett, Very interesting website. I have been a trader for over 20 years. Starting with the basic (not even real time data) early retail trading platforms i.e. Datek, which later got bought by Ameritrade which later merged with TD Waterhouse. I have spent thousands of hours researching trading systems, set-ups, auto-trades, chat rooms, gurus, courses, trading software, DVDs etc. and have spent money on trading software and joined a few trading rooms. So, I am familiar with a lot of the companies you review here. I mostly AGREE with a lot of your reviews and some of this is from… Read more »

Since I have the highest rated service published by Emmett (kjtradingsystems.com) on this site, I feel I should respond to this comment. Since “Anon” states “how accurate are your positive reviews given that you are being paid to promote these sites?” I think a fact based rebuttal is in order: 1) Emmett is not an affiliate of my service 2) Emmett has never asked for money, or anything else in exchange, for the 5 star review he gave my site 3) I have never paid Emmett any money (or in any way compensated him) for my review Emmett does have… Read more »

exactly, this website is a scam, more of a scam then the people they are using to build their own popularity from by bashing them, while promoting those who pay them with 5 star reviews. what a straight scam. and these comments won’t get approved either – this site is the scam site.

Hi Emett. I came back to this site looking for contact info so I can tell you THANK YOU! I was about to sign up with a website that offers training, forum, etc., but a niggling feeling made me do a Google search first. I came across your website, which had a terrible review on the guy. I searched your site for better options and eventually settled on Jason’s Oil Trading Group. I’m extremely happy so far and, as you know, Jason’s honesty is incredibly refreshing in this business. I’m so grateful to you, because I’d come “so close” to… Read more »

Thanks for the reviews, Emmet. They’re very helpful indeed. If possible, could you please add Open Trader to your review list and, by extension E-mini Player (run by the same person)

Open Trader is a course and seems legitimate, but they initially said that they would be trading a live account and sharing the results, then said that for legal reasons they couldn’t (you warned about this). E-mini player has a live trade room but doesn’t show results and doesn’t seem profitable.

Thanks and best wishes,

Pete

Hi Emmett, just letting you know and warning other readers of a continued scam by a company/individual you reviewed previously.. This is Mark(or who knows now as he keeps changing his name) from previously XMA Trading, Bounce Trading, Masters of trading etc, and most recently PivotLines.com.. well, Right now in Online Trader Central he is doing a webinar and trying to scam more people under the new business name shadowdaytrading.com .. Just thought you should know and he needs to be called out once again

Love all your reviews and hard work you put into keeping us informed

We trade very successfully and are very profitable on a daily basis. Since you refuse to answer multiple emails sent to you and want to be a troll in Canada and hide behind your computer we have decided to take the following action. Accelerate the legal action against you for the following.Defamation per se, Injurious Falsehood and Interference with business relationships.

What proof of success do you have Gannon? You mean a colorful bar chart and a list of supposed trades? If this is your idea of proof then I’d say that Shawn Williamson is very safe up there in Canada.

All our trades are documented with brokerage statements to back up our results. Currently until this crap from Shawn who is placing slanderous lies on the internet is taken down it is a zero sum gain to show them. Our law firm we retained in Canada will now do the speaking for us and dear old Shawn is NOT safe from severe Civil prosecution and I am making sure of it. Again, we are NOT affiliated with the other companies this idiot claims. You cannot just make up crap on the internet and damage companies reputation and get away with… Read more »

@ Gannon “All our trades are documented with brokerage statements to back up our results. Currently until this crap from Shawn who is placing slanderous lies on the internet is taken down it is a zero sum gain to show them.” How the hell does that logic work Gannon? If you showed your trading statements then that would be proof that “dear old Shawn” is wrong and a liar. However, I doubt that dear old Shawn is much troubled by your threats and that he is safe in Canada. So let me give you another target. Gannon from ShadowDayTrading.com still… Read more »

So Many Fakes! So Little Time! 1. I recently contacted Jonathan Rose of ActiveDayFaker.com (ActiveDayTrader.com) and asked for PROOF in a nice way. The 5 messages exchanged are nothing that will surprise any of you savvy folks but they are nonetheless absurd, hilarious, illuminating and evil. Please advise if there is a way to post them here or email to Emmett. 2. Contacted Preston James re his Money Press Method for PROOF. His site is FakersEdgeNetwork.com (TradersEdgeNetwork). Same result as above but more efficient. Only one evil reply. 3. Contacted Lee Finberg at SaferFaker.com (SaferTrader.com). Same result as above. As… Read more »

Preston also had “manifesto” a multiple page essay detailing the retailers nightmare of going through fraud after fraud of trading educators like the vendors totally empathize.

I took a 2 day trial, which was way too short, with Trader Shark, as I was personally checking out every Trade Room recommended by Dr, Dean Handley and they were the last one . It was OK , not very expwnsive (I always like that) and Brian was super nice. I was very impressed that they used common indicators, with their own settings, and did not try to re package them to sell. At least he was honest. My only problem was that it was very hard to tell if he was personally taking a trade and if it… Read more »

Thank you for the helpful and accurate comments about Tradershark.com. I also took the trial subscription and had similar experiences of not being able to follow Brian’s trades. Many members would request that he show his DOM or Chart Trader, which he never did. He would often call out an entry, e.g., “long opportunity at 2100”, and then not reveal whether he was in the trade or not until after it moved in his direction. If the trade was positive, you could hear his computer broadcast target filled (even though you wouldn’t hear it broadcast the initial order being filled).… Read more »

Thanks for this website and your work! I wish we have such a site in Europe, where over the last years of the endless bull market and the growing Internet, scammers and frauds grow massively everywhere. The classic way is, that most of the mentors and coaches learn about 6 months to over 5 years to make money trading the stock market. They all fail and then they start to teach others how to trade. That is so ridiculous! But the Internet makes it true. Take a picture of you in a suit and build a fancy website, where you… Read more »

Emmett have you ever met a successful stock day trader that really makes money in the long run? They say 90% of stock day traders fail, I really think that its 100%

Jon
Guest

Its perfectly fine to maintain any amount of money you need to trade the lot sizes that you are trading. 1 lot a minimum of 10k would be fine. 10 lots 100k etc. unless you are trading more than 10 lots I would not recommend having no more than 100k. I say this because i got burnt when I was with MF global a few years back, so now I just leave enough in the brokerage and the rest safely in my personal bank account.

Looking for a reputable trader who gives trade alerts (or teaches how to trade) in the cryptocurrency space…specifically Ethereum. I’m aware that Chris Dunn has jumped into this but based on your review don’t feel I should waste my money with him. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Johan

Hi Emmett, please review VALUTRADER at http://www.valutrader.com when you have an opportunity. I have traded with him for a year and just never managed to get his results. He now trades a “Trade Along” room which costs $149/month which I tried but failed miserably although he posts positive results. I am hoping that you find that he is above board and that I failed due to my own inadequacies but you might find some skullduggery there.
Thanks

Since you’ve been in the room for a year, can you verify the trades in the room with his reported results for the day? Are there trades taken outside of the room session time?

Hi there,

I have just read this website, and I like the idea of a place where we can review and read about the quality of trading products.

One think I like about this blog post, is that it gives a fair angle to both the educators and the students.

Since trading is a business where most of the customers lose, there will be a lot of angry people in the area of trading – so that is why a website like this is very needed.

Thank you for sharing.

We simply sort gurus by ranking, choose the style that suits us and ‘voilla’ – endless stream of $$$ coming our way. But like many gurus, it sounds too good to be true… so can we trust it?
