Thought I start a thread on EminiJunkie.com.

I am a Trading Plan owner, EJ Boot Camp DVD owner and member of the live trade room. I have been burned by other useless trade rooms that use their "secret" indicators. With eminiJunkie, I feel that I am in a real helpful learning environment, due to the fact that they use fibs, support/resistance, various market internals, intra day & long tern charting, and time & sales.

I welcome any thoughts on this to point me in the right direction.

How do you know they are making money? Because they say they are or because you have seen their audited statements?

See Chuck Hays and Madoff et al for examples of "traders" who had sophisticated and intelligent investors fooled for years.



u got me there DT, u got me....no, i did not see any statements...as i crawl under my desk cuz i should had known this was coming when i posted my comments, LOL......

anyway, with EJ, im not against it, nor with it....still searching for another room that is a fit for me....journey continues.....
MCT, why do you feel you need a room at all?
I agree with Jim. It's unlikely that you need a room. It looks like you're prepared to work hard at becoming successful and usually it's the less motivated that look for trading rooms as an "easy" way to riches. I think that you would do well reading books and researching the internet and finding and evaluating publicly available systems. Remember that all the systems that these "rooms" sell are publicly available systems that have a bunch of marketing wrapped around them.

The only reason I look at trading rooms and sometimes take their free trial is to explore the system of it visually looks good to me and do I feel this is something I can learn. For me it is like following a receipe and maybe add an ingredient or two later on instead of trying from scratch.
How do you go about finding publicly available systems to test? What search criteria should one use?
Thanks,
Jack

Reading forums and web sites. Communicating with other traders via email, skype, private message, on forums, in chat rooms etc.

if your paltalk talk room is the holy grail, then why are you requesting to join a skype trading room 9 minutes ago? here is your quote:

maxblaser,
Thanks for the lead. I could not find "es call room" on paltalk. Would you please furnish the full name.

Thanks,
Jack

Could you recommend any good forums, besides mypivots, or chat rooms?

Thanks much
You are 100% right. I was a member too for a few months and I learned a lot from him but the daily videos are not telling the whole truth. The video results are based on the first touch of the entry or provit price. In real live trading that almost never happens. The price has to go thru. that's why the video results are not correct. But for the amount of money you pay for his service, it is absolutly worth it. I didn't buy the DVD.

I've been with EJ since late last year, off and on. Here are my thoughts so far:

Pros-
He has a set of rules in his trading plan, no if's and or buts. Those are his rules to follow by when you are just starting his trading plan progression. In his progression plan, he suggest you learn his system day by day by adding each of his indicators one by one and learning how to use them week by week. Should take you about 8 weeks to get through the first go around. Once you are more experienced, he will teach you how to better filter these rule based trades to be more profitable. In his live room, he is a teacher, meaning he will not stroke you and make you feel good if not warranted. He will come down hard on you if he feels you made a dumb mistake. You need thick skin if you are shooting from the hip. His rule sets are based on trading 50% fibs pullback after some MA's crosses. In the past I didnt really believe in fibs (read my other thread on fib's), cause you can make argument that there is a fib level on every bar on the chart, which is true. But I do believe EJ, use several filters and support/resistance levels to take the most high probability fib set-up. He has many training video's in the members forum, and the other members truely help each other out. There are no bashing on the EJ method in the forum, which is amazing. Usually you will get a few members bash a system in the members forum. He also has DVD for purchase if you want to speed up your learning curve. He also only trades in the morning session only. He posts and reviews each system trade set-up at the end of the day for a final net tick(s) on the day if you had traded every single trade entry for the entire day. This will lead into my cons now.

Cons-
His end of day results videos will show net tic(s) on the day, which 99.5%, the day will end net positive. Here is my issue, he preaches to trade only morning session, but yet posts net results for entire day. I dont agree with this, most likely a sales technique, cause these videos go out to non members who subscribe to his feeds on his site. Also he has 2 basic entries using fib drawings. The first and main is the 50% pullback using the high/low of the previous swing before his moving avg's cross. This is good, but if the move is fast and doesnt pull back far enough and just runs away, he will say it was a fib extension trade. I dont agree with this him adding this trade winner to his results video, because this type of trade is usually too fast to take an entry and most of us will miss it. So I do believe he adds these trades to his results video as sales technique for his memberships, oh well....That is my only gripe.

Hope this helps, because it helps me as well in evaluating these live rooms when I put in down in writing as well.....
