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
One 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.
