A lot of traders tend to ask me similar types of questions about the markets, or about trading in general. So that I have enough time to spend with my gorgeous young family, would it be OK with you if I saved you from days of waiting for my response (which is what will happen if you email me)?
I suggest you find out in advance whether the answer to one of your questions is right here on this web page. If you can't find your answer here, try checking the Support/FAQs tab in our menu. There's a heap of other information for you there as well. Once you've checked in these spots, if your question hasn't been answered, then feel free to email me at
The Trading Game Mentor Program is the most hard hitting trading education on the planet, crammed into 6 thought-provoking months. It will provide you with the ability to turn your trading around, and give you everything you need to be a superb trader, across every time frame, and with every instrument.
The Mentor Program is run by Chris Tate and me through our joint venture website The Trading Game.
We put money into share traders' pockets and make it stick, even if they only have 30-minutes a day available, and have limited knowledge about trading.
You’re the type of person who knows that you need to take action to achieve exceptional trading results. With the incredible systems we’ll help you develop, and our commitment to supporting you as you learn how to trade, we’ve made learning to trade effectively easier than ever.
Past Mentor Program attendees have had some outstanding results directly due to their participation in the program. If you'd like to see what some of them have to say, you can have a look at this page and this page. If you'd like to investigate even further, have a look at this page, and this page as well. Most of the people on the 'Rave Reviews' section of the site have completed the program, and because we use a 'buddy' system where you'll be teamed up with a past Mentoree as a 'buddy', you'll most likely get to know some of these people very well.
The Mentor Program is face to face, online multi-media and forum based. If you're interested in finding out more about Mentor Program, I suggest you register for priority notification and you'll get to watch a 33-minute video about the Mentor Program and trading. You'll also get other free trading resources and advanced notice of when we open for bookings for the next Mentor Program.
At this stage we'll be running the program once or twice a year, it will last for 6 months, and you'll have the ability to repeat the program as many times as you like for FREE. We're so excited about it all and what it can mean to our mentorees.
To prepare for the program, you can't go past our Mentor Program Foundation book pack.

There are a heap of different software packages available to help you progress towards your trading goals. In our experience, the best is Beyond Charts+.
However, there are also others that do a great job, such as BullCharts and Amibroker.
You'll find that most people tend to gravitate towards Beyond Charts+. If you intend doing the Mentor Program, you'll be required to have Beyond Charts+ as this product is required for the advanced strategies you'll learn on that course.
Well, this one is an easy one! It has to be the fabulous Jono Barratt, our licensing broker, as well as Craig Thiessen from IG-Markets. Click here for more information about them, and how you can get started with a free demo of their platform.

Oh my goodness, you poor thing! I can hear your angst. Damn, trading can be stressful, can't it. Enough to drive you up the wall! I can tell you though that there have been MANY traders in your situation that have found a way to burst through, and they've ended up becoming consistently profitable.
To me, it sounds like you are experiencing some sort of block, that may not actually be related to trading specifically. Here is what I suggest:
Finally, I think the thing to realise is that most of what we go through emotionally is temporary, even though it doesn't seem that way when we're in the middle of it. The fact that you're reading this is a big step in the right direction. We all need to remember the support systems that we have available to us, as it will just make trading seem a lot less lonely. Keep in mind that most traders have felt the way you are feeling right now, and it's the ones who burst through that end up being successful.
Hope that helps.
