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, 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.

I am in the “lose $200k” category. 8 years of finding ways that don’t work. Mantra: Win – Or die trying. My reasons for persisting are of doubtful value to articulate here but they are powerful – I tell myself that they must be to have kept me on purpose (full time I might add). I don’t want a Ferrari (I actually would buy a mid-eighties, pre-catalytic converter Porsche 911). Suffice to say that what I do with the leverage will make a difference on the planet. I’ve tried a few “systems” and “gurus” to no avail. So, last year,… Read more »

“Following it strictly, it has to date averaged only 10% of the average monthly results of the previous umpteen years of back tests. The Win/Loss ratio is 42% – down from 58% in the back tests. ????? Can’t for the life of me work that out and, yes I’ve considered the obvious answers that all point to me. ” Certainly yourself is a factor, but I will give you another answer. No Back-testing or Sim trading can accurately simulate real life with real life bid ask spread and real world stop losses and etc. Also you fail to state what… Read more »

Welcome to tradingschools. You’ve never known of it before, because ts is a first time wonder of the corrupt retailer “ecducational” cesspool industry after literally of decades of shilling and misleading media efforts and compromised forums, to say otherwise about the trading dream. While I’d agree with Emmett that maybe 5% probably far less are breakeveners, they are mostly breakeveners(-). There was a university study within this decade which found most brokers reported 98% of retailer accounts ended up losing in the “career lifetime” of the accounts. Like RobB mentioned, completely opposite of what the snakeoiler shamsters want newbs and… Read more »

Hey just found your page! Great work you are doing here 🙂
can you do a review or give me you thoughts on “Jason Stapleton – Trade Empowered” website. Thank you!

Bob

Emmett, also please note that when people click on the link at the top of the Stock Whisperer page that say’s : “159 Comments”, the link takes them to page 2 also rather than page 1 which first should appear. If page 2 shows up first, then there is little review information on that page and it is not clearly obvious that there is a page prior to page 2 with more info. Most people would not notice that. Thanks again

Hi Emmett, Thanks for allowing people to express their opinions regarding these important issues. Please be advised that when people do a Google search for “Stock Whisperer review” and click the link on Google to view the review page on the Stock Whisperer, the link erroneously takes people to the following page: Stock Whisperer The above link is the second page of the reviews which only shows 2 reviews and people don’t realize that there is a more important page with more content previous to page 2 which they should see first. Therefore, they are not getting a full picture… Read more »

Hi again Emmett!

Hi Emmet, Just a note to say thanks for what you do – you helped me stop wasting time on Warrior Trading, and kept me from giving my money to him. However, I am involved with Apiary Fund in Utah, and your idea of them seems to be wrong – they do NOT charge hundreds of dollars per month for connect fees, only $97/month, and there are many people that “grit” their way through the months of training and get funded accounts (training is three months minimum, some people progress more slowly, taking a year or more – some seem… Read more »

If Rob B. is one of your people that review people, then you need to put a muzzle and a harness on that a-hole.

I had no idea who Rob even was until he commented on my post. Then I researched, found his irreleveant rants sprinkled around this site and elsewhere. Based on where he does and does not post, I certainly now seriously question his motivation$$$.

Stray Dog

Rants! Sometime. Irrelevant, never. Rob B is exactly the type of contributor this blog needs to keep the shills and their BS in check.

dtchurn

Either DrNo is pete because he only cares to post about me or b__ks under yet another moniker since ‘toto’ got outed, or he’s a tradingfraternity shill new to ts if really hadn’t heard about RobB or this site until last week.

Seems like the only people who dislike Rob B are either shills or snake oil trading room salesmen. Which one are you David Knight?

Rob B
Guest
Man, I am getting fan mail. I love it. And dtchurnNO I will take this over a like any day. I think a person who blast you and yet can not make any type of intelligent argument over what they disagree with speaks Volumes about their true motives. Think they are associated with a con room trading room? Any bets? BTW, so you have not issue with con artist trading rooms, they should not be muzzled from making false claims, but anyone speaking out against them should be. Interesting? You must have loved Madoff. Keep the hate mail coming. Now… Read more »

For the Record I have no idea who David Knight is or what he is talking about. I think he has the wrong Rob B. So Sadly I do not think it is me that deserves the fame in this case. Maybe it is my twin brother. If someone can point to where I posted anything about David on this site please point it out to me and this is the only site under the user name Rob B. I am not saying anything Good about David K. or Bad. I have no idea what he does. Did Emmett do… Read more »

Rob – How long did you use livetraders.net? Did you track the room results each day?

Rob B
Guest
Mads, That was awhile back. I tried them out as they knew on the right things to say, such as they trade live and show brokerage statements. But when I took their trades you could make money for a short period under the right market condition, but then you would lose it all back and then some. One lesson I have learned and if you read this blog it will be obvious, it is virtually impossible to find a single profitable trader, more less 3 or more in a single Trading Room (TR). When you see a TR with multiple… Read more »

if you follow Rob B’s vegas advise, bet on red instead, my personal experience shows its the better bet.

mads
Guest
Rob Thank you. I joined the room myself for about 11 month ago, and it was not profitable for me. And like you say, they “trade break-outs” But if you have 100 + room members trying to trade the same breakout at the same price level, the slippage is going to be hugh. Makes no sense. Also tried to get some information on they’re “hedge fund” Which was even harder the make a + following they’re trades. Like you say, i’m also wondering why Emmett dosen’t make this review about these guys. I have talked with Emmett several times on… Read more »
Rob B
Guest

Gosh, I forget to even mention their hedge fund. What a complete joke. As part of the scam they tell you once you finish their trading course you will actually be able to trade for their hedge fund. Seriously investors are going to allow some unproven trader to trade their money. Either a scam or they found the dumbest investors on the planet. I can imagine the losses on that hedge fund.

The whole thing is a complete joke.

mads

They use the “maverick model” so no, they don’t lose anything 🙂

Geeze Dave, didn’t do himself any favors in the Youtube video directed towards Rob B. Seems like he got the wrong Rob B and I doubt anyone whose looking for a “mentor” is going to be impressed with his approach to dealing with criticism.

Something Rob B does. It makes him feel better in his sad ass life.
Kiasu.

noun
1.
a grasping, selfish attitude.
“I should have gone two hours earlier: the kiasu in me is growing”
adjective
1.
(of a person) very anxious not to miss an opportunity; grasping.

Stray Dog
Guest

Does anyone know what paul is trying to say here? What post are you responding to paul? What’s the relevance of the Kiasu dictionary lesson. Just in case you’re interested another post that took less than a minute to compose.

dtchurnNO
Guest

Very amusing that the guys who said “likes don’t matter to us” have barraged recent comments with likes and dislikes. I wonder if Churn, Stray and Rob combined their meager savings to buy some likes from fiverr.com? It would be funny, if it was not so transparently pathetic…

Stray Dog
Guest

Cast your votes. Is dtchurnNO actually Pete AKA toto, here to bust dtchurn’s balls or is dtchurnNO a shill for tradingfraternity?

paul
Guest

They’re in serious need of ego stroking. Obviously awesome traders considering they have all this time to post rants while making millions.

LMAO.

Stray Dog

Is paul the new incarnation of dtchurnNO? All this time paul? I don’t know about you but this response has taken me less than a minute to post. I think I can spare a minute or two.

paul
Guest

When Rob B found this website all his wet dreams came true. Somewhere to rant, vent and have wet while dreaming that one day he will become a trader, rather trading comments, not contracts. Rob B The Comment Trader…..lol

Stray Dog
Guest

Maybe paul is David Knight. You sure seem to have a hard on for Rob B paul/David. I can’t figure out what your issue is with him. Nothing that he’s posted recently should give you reason to be so antagonistic towards him. In fact Rob B does a stellar job calling shills and vendors on their BS.

Lucky7
Guest

I’m almost 100% certain paul is David Knight as well. He’s mad at Rob B for calling him out. He even made a video about it.

Now personally, I don’t see what the big deal is with this guy. He posts videos and blogs about how he cant seem to stay funded with TST so he’s only trading SIM accounts anyway.

The only issue that anyone might have with is that he’s selling a “trading mastery” course, “how to turn 10k into 100k” and so on.

Looks like a sad case to me and I would just leave it alone.

Stray Dog
Guest

You’re correct Lucky7 but I also think that it’s important to not let the type of comments we’ve seen from dtchurnNO, David Knight and paul go unchallenged. If we don’t challenge them then the shills and vendors get to take over the comments section.

Pete
Guest

I agree and regular commenters should provide moral and emotional support for victims of Al Brooks’ 2008-present marketing campaign and similar shams.

Rob B
Guest
Paul or whatever name you are going by, it seems a bit silly to argue over non existent comments. I would be more than willing to have an intelligent argument over something non imaginary. So here is what I suggest, instead of posting in the About Trading School thread have Emmett review David Knight’s TR assuming he has not already. I am sure Mr. Knight is knocking it out of the ball park as he claims so all you have to do is get him to show Emmett his live brokerage statements as proof of his day trading room success.… Read more »

I don’t understand why the comments have to turn personal. When Emmett reviews a website that is obviously bilking prospective traders of a monthly churn, it is done as a service. He always gives them a chance to prove their worth as a trader when in fact almost all 99% are true scam artists. Rob B seems to be a part of a group that is trying to inform the public of the absurdity of these false claims. Yes, when it is proven that these con men are defrauding investors it gets ugly. I don’t know why anyone would be… Read more »

There would be nothing for Emmett to report. He is a self-confessed SIM (that is TST) trader who has not been able to stay funded something like 4 times out. Great SIM trader, who seems to have made a habit of passing the TST combine. Not so much of a trader with a small real money account. Then again, what else is new. If anything, he may be the proof that the TST model is unworkable. Those who pass the combine need to be funded with the same amount they had in the combine, not the pittance that they manage… Read more »
Stray Dog
Guest

Seems like there are multiple hoops to jump through at TST. Their design seems to be to make the trader fail so they can generate more combine fees. I have never understood why someone would put themselves through that. Better to trade SIM on their own and put away $50, $100, $200 a week for a year into a trading account and build up a small real trading account.

Cyn
Guest
I agree 110%, if that is even possible. Here in a nutshell is the sucker model. 1. Pay us good money to show us the you can trade a $50k SIM account. We call it a combine, and we shall pocket the money that you pay us to demonstrate your SIM skills. 2. If you pass the combine, play the casino for 10 days. 3. Now, take the proceeds from the gambling and trade it the same way that you were trading the $50k SIM account. 4. You lost the pittance that you made in 10 days, because you chose… Read more »

Oops. “Here in a nutshell is the sucker model.” was meant to read, “Here in a nutshell is the TST (sucker?) model.”
