Do I need to be an experienced trader
to benefit from these sessions?
No. Dick has successfully tutored beginners as well as advanced traders. In fact, one of the most overlooked benefits of this course is that you get to pick the brains of other traders at every level of the profession. Beginners develop a solid trading foundation and "correct" trading methodology. His trading rules help the novice trader avoid potentially career-ending mistakes. Advanced traders gain insights into improving their trading and increasing their potential gains.
I have seen many retail trading packages for
sale - how does your program differ?
Dick's tutoring is not a pre-canned retail package or mechanical trading program. He offers a "no-nonsense" personal approach to trading that he believes has helped him maintain success as a professional trader. Plus, he demonstrates real-money trades LIVE in front of his students. He even takes trading suggestions from students. We know of no other course like it.
How difficult are the classes - do I need
to be a mathematician to understand Dick's or Roberto's teachings?
The concepts that Dick teaches are fairly basic. An advanced knowledge of mathematics is not a prerequisite. What the most successful students do possess is a strong desire to learn, coupled with the discipline to execute his teachings.
If Dick is such a good trader, why is he teaching?
Dick has been a trader for more than 45 years. Over the course of his career he taught for approximately 18 months in the '80s. He greatly enjoyed the rewards of teaching, yet he didn't like the fact that it kept him from full-time trading. Now, Dick only teaches on a limited basis and still remains focused on his personal trading for the vast majority of the year.
Are there any success guarantees from attending
Dick's tutoring sessions?
To attend the sessions does not guarantee success. Trading can be a very challenging business. However, Dick has found that students who are disciplined in their approach and closely follow his teachings will greatly increase their probability of success.
How well have Dick's methods worked during
the market downturn?
Dick has been trading for a living for the past 45-plus years. Throughout this period he has traded during several bull and bear markets (the most recent bear market included).
Do I need to bring my laptop computer to the
