    Hi Guys,

    I have done more research on TI as i found it hard to decide based on the info on this thread because it was mixed with TI spam.

    This link below is from another forum trade2win and a few actual TI members have come in to the open to describe their nightmare experiences with TI.

    Again thanks to everyone for saving me i was really close to biting the hook,
    Timmy ill buy you a drink anyday.

    wwwDOTtrade2winDOTcom/boards/commercial-systems/36008-traders-international-feedback-members-wanted-4DOThtml

    QUOTED FROM T2W;
    Another scam warning - I know someone who paid the $7500+ for the Australian Traders International course and in reality got ripped off. According to him it was scam. I checked the backgrounds of the business owners and they are not traders at all. They come from queensland broker sale backgrounds and developed a system to sell a product. They are business operators not traders. None of them have professional trading backgrounds or any real trading proven experience or qualifications and you wont get your money back. Its very expensive for nothing. no guarantee either. Its another queensland/noosa scam. I was invited into their trading room for a free trial and when i asked the real questions they bull ****ted to everyone and kicked me out, because when you type in the room no one else can see you so they can control the business and keep the con going. It makes me sick the way they talk and carry on. Its all bs. Dont part with your money and tell your friends to stay away. More people should tell each other. TI should be shutdown and reported to authorities. TI works on the ignorant.
    ==========================
    I haven't decided whether to go live as of yet, I am really upset with them because I took 12months to sign up with them and I made it clear at the time that what I wanted was an education and that I didn't want to be reliant on them to trade. James at E minis Global assured me that would be the case, but you basically have to sign up to find out what your really in for. Anyhow I received a phone call from Traders International yesterday to get an update on my progress, which I proceeded to tell them my disappointment at being misled in the first place and whilst the girl I was talking to sounded sympathetic, she never offered my money back. I told her that I thought when signing up with Traders International that I was gong to learn to be a professional trader and instead I find that Dale in the Pro Room ( this is the room where i decided to spend my time trying to learn his techniques) calls all the trades and doesn't explain why he takes the trades that he does. The girl I spoke to confirmed the reliance on Dale for results by saying the Dale follows his own methods gained from years of being a professional trader, which is fine if you purely want to rely on someone else to take control of your trading, but that is not what I wanted right from the beginning, so I don't know.
    I am in a catch 22 situation, do I take my chances and just follow dale until I recoup my investment with the company or do I cut my loses and spend more money learning how to trade!!!! I will say this about Dale though, he is a professional trader and he DOES know what he is doing. I have been following his trades as he calls them and they are profitable, so given that I am considering just following him for a bit to recoup my investment and at the same time I am going to start reading some books and try and learn from the ground up. So my advice is: If you just want to sit in a trading room and have an experienced trader call the shots and make some money it is for you, however I think there maybe some cheaper trading rooms around that can offer the same thing but without the $7500 price tag. There is a site called daytradetowin.com I have been watching there videos online and it looks interesting, so I might do some further research about them and follow them yet, I might actually learn something!

    Hi All,

    has anyone heard of "the trading authority" they offer training and offer a free 1 week access to the live room. Just wanted to know if anyone has any good or bad experiences with that company.

    The BEST course is BEST defined in terms of your return on your investment. For example, before you pay another lying scum spruiker $7,000 for his scaminar, your question to them should be 'how much will I make back in a year, 5 years, 10 years by following your course'. If they can't answer, go away. Otherwise ask them to guarantee it. If they won't, go away.

    My best course by far was "Secrets for Profiting in Bull and Bear Markets" by Stan Weinstein. It was the most profitable course I ever did. It cost me $39 6 years ago. (Hint, I think it's still available at Dymmocks). And my return on investment since then is about 28,846% and climbing.

    regards

    Hi Chris2009,

    I know this reply is several months after the event, but if you feel you have been duped / scammed / ripped off by TI, then I strongly, strongly suggest you lodge a complaint with ASIC. Do it through their website - they have an online form to fill in, and they have to acknowlege your complaint. I have heard that ASIC are currently cracking down very hard on these rip-off merchants.

    Before you pay a subscription to any trading room ask for a one-week free trial and insist on seeing their past results. I recently asked one of these organisations for some results of their swing trading - for which they send out SMS alerts - and was told they were for members only. Hmmm! I wonder why?

    Hey people,

    There is an Australian Online Trading Education course run out of Western Australia. There is a lot of free stuff (videos/information) on the site worth looking at,


    cheers,

    Hello all, I'm looking around at different options for trading education and have come across a company called SHARE STAR.

    The owner is Trevor Hurst. Oddly they don’t have a Financial Services License and don’t appear to have an office address.

    I went to a seminar and it all seems good but don’t they all.

    They offer 12 months education, frequent training and support but it’s a hefty $7000 for the year and then a $1000 per year after for the on-going support.

    I bumped in to one trader who spoke highly of their service, said he follows a the system and makes money, but I wanted to check the wider community and see if anyone here had heard of them.

    I don't know anything about this company, but I do know of Trevor Hurst. He worked with Noel Whittaker (financial adviser), who has a good reputation.

    You don't need to have an ASIC license to provide stock market education, provided you don't give advice; although ASIC seem to be a bit inconsistent about this. The reason I say this, is that I know of several cases of educators without licences who have come under the radar and been given the OK by ASIC.

    I don't know if that helps at all........

    This thread is a joke.

    You guys wouldn't know a good educator if you fell over one.

    And $39 * 28,000% is $11,500 in yr s.
    If your return on investment of $39 is what you meant.

    If you started with $100K then $2.8 billion is pretty good from a book.
    Top down approach trading above or below a 150 day M/A. pretty basic.
    I'm happy to donate another $500 to Joe if you can substantiate this claim.

    You cant even evaluate one! (Directed at ALL in this thread not just kam 75)

    And what do they suggest your return will be for that $7000 initial investment and $1000 thereafter?

    What are they actually offering for (a) the $7K , and (b) for the ongoing
    $1Kpa?

    Re: Best Share Trading Courses... Whats Your Recom

    I have been lurking for a long long time and never really post. I have done a few courses... one was a joke( don't know if I should post the name but it cost $5k and all I got was a book) and one that turned out to be the one for me(Louise Bedford and Chris' Tates Mentor course).

    "High Probability Trading" by Marcel Link is my personal favourite. Dont see it mentioned very often but i think its great. Its written for US markets however but still very relevant.

    Its hard to recommend a course as most of the ones i have looked at in the past are 5K+. I'd only be willing to spend that much if I had trusted friend or relative who had purhcased the course and MADE MONEY.

    Begineers are best-off reading a few stock market books recomended by other traders here. Then you will have a better idea of what style of trading suits your personalty before you purchase an expensive course.

    I started my trading education with SITM back around 2000 when you could get the begineers course with seminars for $995. I only spent that much as I had a family friend who proved to me they had made money out of it.

    The best course to attend is from "The School of Hard Knocks".

    Read up as much as possible, start off small and learn through your personal experience.

    Further, I don't believe in trading phantomn accounts (i.e. fale or make believe money). Shooting blanks is not the same as real bullets.

    Invest what you can afford to lose and learn, there is no substitute for real life experience.

    Hi Kav,
    A friend of mine has just completed his mentorship course with Louise & Chris,
    A lot of good info & ethics as far as I could tell [risk no more than 2% of your bank] at least when trading with cfd's or similar methods.

    My friend is still hashing-out his own tailored trading program on meta-stock.
    I'll keep you posted on his progress.
    He also gave me a book to read, by Chris Tate.
    A good read.

    Speaking of courses & strategies, have you looked at the thread titled Bill Stacy?

    He teaches his own method for day-trading options.
    And there's a chance that he might walk us through a few of his upcoming trades as an example, for us to observe.

    Regards,
    Vicki:)

    I'm a bit confused by this post, Vicki. Haven't you, on the 'Bill Stacy' thread been complaining about being 'done over' by this course?

    And now you are quasi recommending it to someone else?

    Perhaps I'm quite misunderstanding what you are saying.

    Hi Julia,
    Sorry for the misunderstanding.
    No I wasn't trying to spruik his wares or benefits of his new out-fit,
    [actually I havn't seen anything of substance as yet]

    I was merely giving these guys a heads-up, as they were discussing stategies,
    and one of the 'educators' just might be showing us what he now has to offer.

    With all who are interested to observe & give their opinion on.

    Regards,
    Vicki
