I thank you for doing a great job explaining the DMI indicator functionality on Friday.
The detail and insight was very helpful and I applaud you for teaching style.
Enjoy your weekend!
I just wanted to give you guys a quick thank you and bravo in regards to your theodark reports as well as platform as a whole. You have changed my outlook on the market, improved my trading style and given me many hours of enjoyment.
Whoever decided to use the pseudonym John Galt makes my day everytime I read your reports.
I enjoy your animated and very informative presentations very much!
I thought Slim Miller's presentation today on setting alerts on
drawings was excellent!
Love the videos and your can-do attitude in helping us little retail guys. Kudos!
First and foremost, great video yesterday on the scanning function of ToS as I've attempted to use it several times in the past but with varying degrees of success. Your session answered a number of questions I had and AGAIN showed me not to be intimidated by the platform - wrt using the "Scanner Custom Filter".
Good evening DK,
As a multi-decade risk manager for one company I work for and owning two other businesses of my own, I must say that your perspective of portfolio risk management is exactly how I attempt to explain to those close to me with significant investments. Quantification via standard deviations of near and long term timeframes are critical considerations for responsible and successful endeavors regardless of underlying (market related or otherwise). It was refreshing to listen to your perspective on the same today. Sincerely appreciate your efforts.
Thanks for the daily videos. Great info. Good education, especially today and preparing for Friday's numbers. I don't have much money to be trading with yet, but I'm learning every day about not making the mistakes most rookies are making. So when I do start attacking/playing/trading the markets I will make money --> two steps forward, one step back --> repeat process. Thanks again for the time you spend preparing the videos and teaching all of us.
Slim, thanks for the time and presentation - the Dynamic Yield Chart was fascinating and explained so much... I really like the way you correlated the yields with the SPX and how there is such a profound relationship with the whole Bond market - Big THANKS
Thanks for informing me regarding the upcoming Whale Session this Saturday. I will watch it in the recording.
I want to thank you for your Option 201 Session which I went through the first session as a refresher to spread trades. The contents of the session on spreads are very helpful. I will continue to complete rest of the sessions so I can become a better and profitable trader.
Also, do convey my thanks to Jeff Biermann for putting his heart and head in teaching his sessions. I generally catch the archived sessions. Kind regards,
I am a charter member of Theo Trade and have been with you from
the beginning. I believe that today's class was one of the best so far
for TT and without question the your best presentation so far. You
obviously spent a great deal of time and effort in putting it together.
Not only did we not venture down Bugs Bunny's rabbit hole but the
shear volume of information that you strung together and the seamless
nature of the way it was communicated was brilliant.
Keep up the good work,
Thanks so much again for your rapid response.
It is great to know my TheoTrade membership will help me get even better rates at TOS than I currently have.
The real trading/education/guidance value I have seen via TheoTrade far exceeds this of course.
Take care and keep up the great work!
Thanks Don! I just finished my very first ever quarterly trading report and I grossed 21% ROI! Thanks for all the help! Looking forward to your intra-day course tomorrow morning!
Just wanted to say that I have gained a lot from the membership in Theotrade from the beginning.
I have learned a lot from you and your entire first class team.
Thank you for all you do and I wish you and your team continued success.
Well done all at TheoTrade! What a day! What a great opportunity for the guests and for the members. The market even cooperated!
Don and crew,
I took the Intraday course on Monday and I can say that I'm 3 winners out of 4 trades. I know that may not continue but for now I appreciate the knowledge that I received. Money well spent.
You’ve done a great job explaining the basics of your trading strategy. The hard right edge/narrative has been great.
I plan to start Paper Trading the coming Monday with the full expectation to start live trading in circa two weeks.
Thanks for everything Don.
I really do love TheoTrade - and it has been a great experience being a part of the group. I think you’ve done a fantastic job with the service and wish you nothing but prosperity and success in this venture.
Hi Don and others, quick thank you for the great information you give on using TOS. I am new to the platform and find your videos better and more instructive than those in the TOS learning center. Looking forward to more.
I also just want to say that I love your product. Just wish it had been around when I was starting out a few years back! It is well thought out, covers different trading styles, emphasizes Risk/ Reward and why this is so important! And teaches how to trade different products! Thank you to all at Theotrade !! You are doing a great job!!!
Please give my compliments and admiration to Don and the rest of the gang for both Quality and Content of the videos. SUPERB!!!!!
Watched your video on "Overcoming Directional Market Freezing" in TheoTrade twice today. I find your series highly informative and enlightening and follow them closely. Thank you!
First and Foremost
Holy crap !!!!!!!!!
I have been a member, of a lot (more than anyone should) of Stock market education sites.
None of them even come close to the amount of information on TheOTrade!
Hi Don: I am a customer of Theo Trade and also subscribe to IBD. I viewed your webinar with IBD and found it to be presented well and very informative. I would guess that many IBD subscribers have never traded options so the In/Out spread which we use daily is a great example of how options work and the ability to understand the exposure to risk.
I have benefited from Theo Trade and hope that you get a lot of new members from the IBD network and your business continues to grow.
Good education for all, even the experienced trader.
Please tell Slim Miller that his presentation was both timely and very helpful in understanding certain correlations
Thanks for your help Jeff (Roth), I'm now in! I have to say, I really have enjoyed my Theotrade ongoing education. I've traded options for many years, but with varying success. Theotrade is helping me pull things together and get a consistent 'edge' with options.
Thanks, and best trading to you,
The last 3 days have been GREAT!
Thank you for your insights and preparation as I know it takes time to put it all together.
Enjoy the weekend!
"I love you guys, by far the best value in trader education anywhere. Actually, bargains are only bargains in hindsight, but Theotrade is a an absolute hardcore value!
Thanks for all you guys do!
Happy St. Patricks Day
TheoTrade is the best service out there. If there's every anyone interested in trading, I always tell them about TheoTrade. You guys are the absolute best...that's just how I feel about it. I've learned so much from you guys.
Thanks for everything you do,
I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone at TheoTrade. I can't tell you how improved my trading has become (at least understanding price action). I've learned so much over the last 15 months.
Don - reading the overall markets
Tony - price levels and consistency
Doc - psychology and reading price action
Jeff - technical analysis
I've applied all aspects to my trading methodology that have helped me hone in what works for me!
Hopefully I'll have some good news in the future and continue to build on these positive results.
I just wanted to let Don and all of the Theo trade family, thank you. I can't stop watching the all the videos. Your presentation of the market makes me feel like I have a chance.
I am totally impressed with your response. I did not expect for you guys to answer my email.
I know that it is Sunday evening there.
Thank you very much! Really appreciated your response.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to have finally found a trading community that is obviously based on real knowledge, openness and integrity. In fact, I’ve spent the last two years searching for just this and now feel that half the battle is won just in finding and embracing you guys.
Thank you Don. I follow up with your comments and Doc's and I must say you are one of the few in this business, that makes the right comments.
I myself trade since 1984 and I heard a lot of BS, stay humble and down to earth and you will be successful.
Thanks very much. I am very grateful and thanks for your excellent teaching materials.
Best wishes and warm regards to you, Jeff, Doc and Slim
Thank you for taking the time to respond Jeff (Bierman).
I do not get to watch all of your sessions but I think they are absolutely brilliant and you are a great teacher.
Thank you. I appreciate all you are doing for our little community & am amazed that U guys are willing to share.
I just wanted to thank you for all of your guidance and caring about your clientele!
I just wanted to mention that I am really enjoying my membership with TheoTrade! I listen religiously every morning to your market updates as well as the coaching sessions throughout the day. I've learned a ton and am always finding something new!
Thanks again for everything you and the other mentors do for us! It is very much appreciated!
EXCELLENT webinar by Don!
Found a nice trade today AAL 3/31 45.5 C 1.24 >> 1.42 * over 10K transacted
You folks have a great operation.
I came over with Doc Severson.
Love the grand selection and offerings of and by such knowledgeable, experienced teachers. An excellent potpourri of gourmet meals, real meat and potatoes, AND surf and turf.
A lot to digest, too....
All the best!
That was an outstanding presentation on order execution. You must have had a ton of people opting for full membership. We have been with you since the beginning and it is the best investment in education that we have ever made.
You are an excellent instructor, not only because of your unlimited knowledge of the market, but also your delivery and sense of humor. Looking forward to an ongoing relationship with you and your associates.
All the best,
Bob and Nanci W
Thanks Stacie. I have enjoyed my membership. Theotrade is everything I have been looking for. I am going to renew my monthly membership for next month.
Great training tonight! I just watched the replay on which options strategy to use. You validated most of what I’ve learned the past 9 months! And I’m preserving capital AND making money (up 20% in 9 months. Not even close to the goal, but I’m making money and not losing my capitalJ)
I need to go back and listen to the last 6 minutes or so because you really got to the meat there.
Thank you and your staff for all of your help and support!!
Slim, I wanted to say thank you for your charting which I used to do an in and out bull spread trade on gold. I sold the upper leg for what I paid on the initial leg capturing $20. Your timing was spot on. Thank you.
Thank you for the message. You and your cohorts, Jeff and Doc, are the best. I listen to the newsletter and coach's archive every night. Since I joined Theotrade it is like a light going off. I have been doing both long and short verticals on a regular basis. My profits have been very consistent.
Keep up the great work.
Jeff (Roth), thank you for your very expansive and gentle reply. I'm
impressed... even the support staff is "formidable".
I will consider my choices offered and act accordingly.
Just one final note -- in French, there is the notion "rapport entre
qualitie et prix" which in English could translate as "bang for the buck"
I believe that TheoTrade delivers the best "bang for the buck" I've ever
encountered in my many years struggling with this thing called trading.
Thank you again.
Thanks Doc, answered my question perfectly.
I am truly impressed and greatly appreciate the wonderful and quick support I have been getting from you and Jeff (Bierman) at TheoTrade.
I've been following your strategy for about three weeks now and I really appreciate your advice in the chat room. I have another job so this is a nice chunk of extra money.
Just wanted to say thanks to you, Don, Doc, Slim and Jeff for all the great advice. Best money I've spent on advice ever.
Thank you for all the great info. I'm going to add Tony's course to my archives and will upgrade my membership. I'm very happy to have joined TheoTrade. I knew when Don K was involved, this was going to be something special. And that includes all of you that help run the business/education.
Hello! First of all, I wanted to thank you all for the great work you do. I am ever so glad I found THEO TRADE!!! Even though I am still struggling with my results, I finally feel I am on the right way to becoming a profitable trader!
I also wanted to let you know I am especially happy and thankful because today , watching Doc's Replay (unfortunatelly couldn't attend live), I saw what you are planning on doing with the "In Out" class first and many others in the future, and it sounds great! I know you guys are putting a lot of effort in teaching us, and just wanted to make sure to let you know I (and I am sure many others) appreciate it...thanks again!
thank you all for the great work you do. Take care all and see you soon in the chat room!
I just want to let you know your teaching of options and trade logic make so much sense to me, I've been a student of the market for a while now, purchased training products from other traders and training institutions but i must admit "You really hit it outta the ball Park bro" the way you strategize your trade and the ideas behind them it's fabulous. I bought the options 101,102 and vertical spreads and I also get the daily market update from Theotrade. I wish I'd found you guys soon my training would have been easily... looking for purchasing more classes in the future. You're great a teacher! "time out here for one second" LOL
I’ve been trading with you for a week and a half and was in webinar Saturday.
I’ve made profit every day but the first day (because I didn’t know your trading plan.
That’s six winning days in a row.
I’ve been trying to learn how to trade futures for a year and a half and never had any success.
I have used many indicators and hopped from room to room. This is the first time I think I get it.
I doubt I could do it on my own yet but I’m going to stay with this.
I like seeing the price action and prefer it over watching indicators.
Thank you very much!
Hey awesome TheoTrade Peeps!
First, please let me tell you how much I have enjoyed TheoTrade. I started with the In Out Spread Class and recently purchased the Butterfly Class. Come the first of next month I will likely purchase TotalTheo because I value (and enjoy) your content so much. As I told Jeff in an earlier email, I am pacing myself. Lol. Not to mention the fact that you fine folks also scored me a sweet commission deal with TD Ameritrade. Kudos and bravo!
Thanks a million!
Yet another satisfied customer,
Hi Jeff (Bierman), I just went through your class last night that I purchased a while ago. The class, "Technical Analysis 101", was simply amazing! I wished I would have had access to years ago, it would have been helpful in sorting out my brain, styles and trading plan.
As it is, I've been trading for about 10 years, and I'll be re-working and getting much more specific about my trading plan.
I've enjoyed all the programs that I've purchased there and find your firm offers an incredible value. The is the first class that I've attended that you constructed and presented. I can feel the passion come through, bravo!
The class was exceptional, thank you!!!
I have been meaning to write this letter to you and could not wait any longer.
Maybe the reason I was interested in your presentations is because I am a retired Electrical/Scientist Engineer, smile.
Since I was familiar with your style, I finally decided to become a member to TheoTrade. At this time, I am thoroughly impressed with your business plan, i.e., hiring the most interesting and excellent instructors, Tony, Jeff, Doc, and Slim. I have learned a lot from all of the instructors and they teach in a clear and simple methodology as well as yourself.
I learned Tony's method trading NQ and I was able to use additional indicators that I was able to program myself to fit my style, and have successfully accomplished profitable trades. Also, I have applied the principles that I learned from you, Doc, Jeff, and Slim.
I feel like I am getting a free education form Professor Jeff.
You have provided a very diversified instructors that are excellent teachers explaining their expertise (of course, it also includes Don Kaufman).
I would like to thank you for sharing all of your knowledge and experiences from all of you at TheoTrade.
P.S. At the end of the day, I take my iPAD to bed and watch the lessons from past presentations. I do this every day.
Take care Don and God bless You and your family.
First of all I would like to thank you so much for all of the information, tutorials, videos etc with our membership. My wonderful experience to date started with Stacie when I first called in about the TotalTheo membership in February of this year. I am on information overload now trying to digest everything.
I started learning about options over a year ago and like most others I purchased and subscribed to a service only to see my account disappear. It was time for me to learn and do it myself and that is when I came across your team. I have no reason to not be a member for life as this all makes sense to me and the education is second to none.
Jeff, loved the session on the RSI today. I learn alot from your sessions. (And Don's, Tony's, Doc's, & Slim's)
Also the technology Theotrade set up for archiving is superb to anything I've experienced. But I guess that I shouldn't be surprised with guys that came from TOS!.
I'm sitting here listening again, because as you know it was a fun day and while I caught most of it, there were a couple of pieces that I wanted to review. The archiving technology makes it easy to not stress about missing something!!
Great job, it really makes the day alot more fun & productive to be able to tune in and listen to market professionals while trading! After all, I can only listen to Elvis so much!!
Thanks again, love the service!
A few months ago I scoured the internet in search of any option trading information on TOS. That's when I came across Don Kaufman explaining the Analyze tab for TOS. It was MINDBLOWING! Not only was it full of tons of useful information but Don can make a somewhat mundane topic extremely lively and humorous. I probably learned more from that one video than the 20 videos I watched before. I was hooked and began googling Don Kaufman's name. This is when I came across Theo Trade! I purchased the class on Intraday Strategies and I instantly made back the cost of the course within two small option trades on SPY using trade logic. Now I'm watching the Bonus Classes. Long live Theo Trade!!!
Thanks! your Canadian pupil,
Don I've been wanting to learn more options strategies. For this reason and my knowledge of you inspires me to connect and learn from you. I wish you were in this position with TheoTrade in 2010-2011 when I started...lol never too late and I am always learning.
Thank you, Don for your availability to enlighten those like myself in this field of options.
Personally, I enjoy listening not only what you instruct and produce in education, but your character is genuine and I find that personal authentic and not just someone like robotic or trying to empress. You're not afraid to be Don.:)
Anyways, thanks so much for what you do.God Bless!
