Soon-To-Be TMTT Student Email

Mark,
Boy am I glad I stumbled across your post.
I went to the TMTT 3 day seminar, but found myself
very skeptical about dropping the kind of money they
wanted (especially since I've recently beeen victim of a corporate downsize), even though I found myself interested
in the course. (maybe the Russ Whitney connection was
just too slimy for me).
Anyway, I was looking for anyone who had experience
with TMTT, and thank God, you popped up.
I wish you nothing but the best of luck (probably for some selfish reasons - so I'll feel safe buying the course the next time they're in town). Keep up the great work, and thanks for the honesty.

You're welcome... the blog's a lot of work, but I know I'm helping others make more informed decisions. I know I'd like to have seen something like my blog when I was signing up for courses. If you're really interested in trading for a living I'm finding The Complete Trading for a Living by Dr. Alexander Elder to be very useful and is probably a good place to start, even before any TMTT classes (and it's only $40, including the study guide in a leather bound edition, I bought the study guide separately and spent more!). Add what's commonly known as the Technical Analysis and Options "Bibles": Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets by John J. Murphy and Options as a Strategic Investment by Lawrence G. McMillan, and you'll have a head start on trading and be even more prepared for what TMTT can teach you.

Best of Luck and Diligence!

Mark

Mark,
Your posting of my email was nice to see. If anyone thinks that Mark
has any association with TMTT, and
that this blog is phony, I'd tell
you that you're probably wrong. I've got to believe they'd never let my comment on my perception
of Russ Whitney through. Thanks

R.J.,

Yes, I am indeed a real person that does not receive any compensation from Teach Me To Trade. My only relationship with TMTT is that of a student.

I do not get paid for this blog, nor for anything I write. Well, actually I can make some money if you click thru to Amazon and purchase the books I've recommended. All of my ramblings are my own honest take on my experience and my interpretation of the market, TMTT, etc...

Soon I'll post a wishlist or something for all of you to shower me with gifts to thank me ;-).

Also, R.J., you've made me reconsider how I change people's names to protect the innocent... I think I'll just use initials in the future. Did you like your name reassignment? Have you always wanted to be a Jim?
