Alex - I have watched your last Password class multiple times - loved it. Thanks again to both you and Kerry for sharing so much. I learn something new every time.

Thanks to Kerry, Alex and every experienced Spiker who comments. With your wisdom I have been trading a lot more rationally and less emotionally. Discipline and patience!

I have really been enjoying being part of the SpikeTrade group and have learned so much.  I have identified some of my weaknesses and continue to learn each week.  In addition to the friendly competition with the group I appreciate the ability to get some trading ideas to investigate on my own from the Spikers and other Members.

Dear Alex and Kerry,
First, I would like to thank you for your excellent coaching. I have been going through the content of the website for the last month, and it has proven very helpful and very complementary to my readings. The impact on my real account has been immediate. I am quite new to trading (I started in February this year, with a total lack of methodology) with a rather small account, only to see it melt down rapidly. I heard of Dr Elder’s work during the Summer through my reading of the material produced by an Australian investor (Colin Nicholson). Since I joined SpikeTrade a month ago (after reading Trading for a Living), I recovered more than half of the losses I had accumulated for the last seven months. All this thanks to your methodology, that I am only starting to grasp! I really look forward to learning more from you and other members.

I'd like to join other SpikeTrade members in expressing my gratitude to Alex and Kerry for their non-stop work, market analysis and open sharing of knowledge. Last Password course on Squeeze play was just fantastic and I already added the scan to my homework. Thank you guys for opening new doors for us and making us better traders!

I feel as a Member of Spike group I belong to an elite group of friends. Though I have not met fellow traders so far, I see a confidence developing and bonds forming. I cannot discuss trading with anyone within my immediate circle but being a member of Spike group I get that privilege to learn and share with members.

You are both my teachers of the market and I will be ever grateful for what I learned from you both. From a consistent loser I am now becoming slowly but steadily a consistent gainer. I know I still have a long way to go to start depending completely on trading income. I am confident with your teaching and support I will achieve that goal sooner than later

Dear Alex,
I always enjoy reading all SpikeTrade posts by you and Kerry. I do not actively submit trade picks since I'm very focused on developing and managing my own trading system, but I do follow all your comments. I compliment both of you on the Password course, all classes are very instructive and practical. Especially practical to me were last two ATR classes by Kerry, I added his tools to my own trading system, with nice results.

Dear Dr Elder, 

I really appreciate the new Password course in SpikeTrade (have been following the last two sessions). Appreciate that you and Kerry are constantly looking to add value to the website, and of course, needless to say, the selfless sharing. It is indeed a great community to learn from. I'm personally taking a backseat for my trades as I'm very busy with the newborn and two other toddlers (total madness). However, I still do try to squeeze time to learn and to stay in touch with the markets.

Hi Kerry,

I thought webinar was excellent and I learned a lot. You and Alex are first class individuals as I can tell that your mission is to teach first & foremost instead of most firms just trying to make a profit.

Hi Alex and Kerry

I just wanted to thank you both for your fantastic analysis and work that you do for SpikeTrade. It's truly an unique environment you have created. I've learned priceless lessons from both of you and hope to continue to do so in the future.

Kerry,

One of the tremendous values I have gotten from being in SpikeTrade (and learning from my own mistakes) is that you need to wait until the signal is confirmed.

You and Alex do a great job of disseminating your vast knowledge. I am grateful for it.

Alex,
I am very grateful for your teaching and sharing both in your books and in your posts. I am reading all the spike trade posts daily and studying The New Trading for a Living. I will participate more in the trading community once I have learned more.

Alex & Kerry,

The greatest benefit by far involves the posts by both of you and all Spikers and Members. The information relative to possible stocks and trading ideas is why I choose to be a member; this is the real value and service you provide to home traders. Thank you both for your time and commitment to make me a better trader.

Thank you Alex. I am a newbie to trading ......... but have learned a lot from you, Kerry and the professionals in SpikeTrade. When you look at my earnings curve you can see when I hit a homerun and then took significant losses. I have now learned to protect capital and take modest profits when available.

Thank you and Kerry for your experienced wisdom you teach the members of SpikeTrade

I got into trading around 2009. It wasn't until I read The New High New Low Index that I really started to feel like I had finally uncovered something that could give me an edge. Naturally that led me into Spiketrade, and from that point my trading has improved vastly. Kerry, your commentary and analysis of the S&P500 has taught me more in the few months that I have been in Spiketrade than all the years leading up to it.

I'm quite an active trader and usually hold S&P500 positions for 1-4 days, depending on the swings. The commentary you both give on the S&P500 has been immensely educational. For a day job a travel with the Williams F1 team around the world to each race and trade wherever I am. I read SpikeSpeak and US NH-NL and then go back to my charts. From there I place my orders and stops.

Thank you for the great job you are both doing. It is great to have found Spiketrade.

I feel privileged to have SpikeTrade for company, remote as most of you might be. Having met some of you these past two years, both on line as well as in person, in places as diverse as Seattle, Alabama, and Athens Greece, it strikes me as poignant that we share the common bonds of striving fearlessly in the face of adversity, choosing to be self sufficient, and acting selflessly in offering our support when needed. These traits were seldom honoured in my time in the corporate world, where individuality was frowned upon, and truly innovative thought was not only questioned but shunned.

At SpikeTrade, we have the positive efforts of Alex and Kerry to thank for a refreshing point of departure. I look forward to many years of continuing my association with them and with all of you out there.

Thank you!

Alex and Kerry,

I can't believe it. My wife can't believe it. Since the Alabama workshop a few weeks ago, my trading account is up 4.5%, basically winning 3 out of 4 trades in the downdraft of the first half of October. Last week my computer crashed so I replaced it but I missed the bounce rally. This week I'm learning TradeStation, how to use the SpikeTrade journal, etc, so I haven't traded in 2 weeks. Next week is November and expect to be back in the saddle.

I continue to review your notes and homework procedures. Having a daily regime was missing before but now I have yours. What the workshop did for me psychologically was to watch both of you trade real money with confidence. That experience alone was worth the trip. But I learned so much more, both in class and out of class. I'm sure you are used to hearing this but what you both share weekly really impacts our lives. Thank you again. Appreciate your friendship and expertise.

Hi Alex & Kerry,
I would like to thank both of you for diligently and generously making this place unique. In addition to a great pooling of knowledge and experience here, I appreciate the way you work on daily comments on the markets: evidence-based, pragmatic and most of all, no BS! I also like that you don't write something simply because you have to, as a-nothing-important-day is rightly part of the market; therefore, I would be able to harmonize my steps with the market, instead of being stirred up by the news media. Thank you for these!

The reviews of losing trades by Spikers is a fantastic idea and a powerful tool for those of us who are miles behind the performance they have.

It's really amazing the way in which these highly talented people comment on their losses and failures, especially in a business in which we only heard of winning systems, methods, etc...

Hello Kerry,

Thank you for helping me develop a plan for long term trend trading. I've made 41 trades and recently entered them all in the SpikeTrade Trade Journal. What an eye opener that was! Not only for the wealth of data for analyzing trading results, but also for the discipline it imposes, knowing you are going to put down in black and white each thing you did and why you did it. What a great tool.

Bob T, California

When I read Trading for a Living and Come Into my Trading Room, I realized I needed to totally reassess how I was trading. I have joined SpikeTrade and especially like the Trade Journal because of the discipline it brings to my trading.

Dear Dr. Alex and Kerry,

Alex and Kerry,
I’ve been a member for 8 months, and my only regret is I wish I found SpikeTrade earlier in my trading life.
SpikeTrade helps to find a trading strategy, the markets to trade, risk management, how the markets react, etc.
Having the patience to put your trades on every week teaches you a great deal about yourself, risk management and timing.
Thank you.

Hi Alex and Kerry,
Thank you both very much for the Workshop - a great time, with excellent learning materials. Thank you Kerry for having us in your office, your home, and for the shop tour. And BIG thanks also to Karen and Josh for the food details. The whole event was magnificent.
Hope to see you again at some other gathering in the future.
Keep up the great work, it sure does help me a lot.

Hi Kerry and Alex,
I have now been a member of SpikeTrade for approx 18 months and really enjoy the daily contact. Even though I do not trade the US stocks because of the time difference involved I have learnt an enormous amount. Your partnership is very successful as your skills complement each other so well.

Dear Dr Elder & Mr Lovvorn,

Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and experience, exactly identifying the critical success factors, including analytical, behavioral and tactical skills and providing a very strong community, to help in advancing from theory to practice!

See you at the Live Trading workshop in September!

Kerry,
I must tell you how valuable I found the video on your shorting WAC. It was extremely informational, as well as bolstering my knowledge of risk/reward/opportunity decisions. I frequently find myself getting out of a trade because the overnight “sleep” factor would be VERY uncomfortable, yet damn myself when the following day the trade goes the way I planned. Now I consider the decision a business decision, and realize there is a train coming into the station every day, and I can pick which one to board.
Thanks again

I read your post this morning - what you wrote was a really good, clear explanation of the key problem in trade management and how to view it mathematically.
Kudos for a great post.

Hi Kerry!

I'm currently in my 2 week trial membership of Spike Trade, and already, I know I will be upgrading to the full membership. The content and the sense of camaraderie is really excellent! I'm very much a beginner here, but don't get the sense that I am looked down upon, and the open exchange of ideas you all emphasize demonstrates your sincere efforts in making us better traders, and making SpikeTrade the best it can be. Thanks to you, Alex, and all the others in your team.

Hi Alex,

I just like to thank you for the great set up and test you showed in Spike Trade for AMZN. It should pay for the Spike membership for a few years.

All the best to you and Pat.

Hi Alex,

Watching Spike traders refine their methods has allowed me to realize how personal your trading techniques really are: a combination of personality, controlled emotion and personal goals to create your comfort zone to trade. Trading out of your boundaries can give you an adrenaline rush, only to find yourself with a loss. Spike Trade gives a unique opportunity to see what it really happening in the trading world.

Hi Alex and Kerry,

Just a short email to say how much i enjoy reading both of your posts in Spiketrade. I especially liked Kerry's recent AK Journal "How I Managed My Trade - Long AUY, ABX" from December 18th. The video was particularly interesting. I continue to learn so much from the pair of you and other members among the group. I look forward to being able to meet you at a Spiketrade meeting in the near future. Keep up the fantastic work!

I began doing very well in trading: I only day-trade for an hour or two per day (stocks, futures and forex) and I am up 7.5% in my account in November for the first time in a very long time.

The method that I use is what we saw in Alabama, the only thing is that I am combining the Alex method with Kerry one and I put something of me.

Dear Alex and Kerry,

Thanks for a great workshop. It was great to see you in action. I really appreciated your willingness to have open discussions and to answer questions during the sessions. I found you both to be very approachable and down to earth. I also thought we had a really interesting group of attendees.

In addition, I want to thank Kerry for his hospitality. I'm really glad that we met in Alabama. Kerry, you have a wonderful family and home and thank you again for your welcoming hospitality.

I have some serious goals and a lot of hard work ahead of me and it definitely does not include any "recreational trading"!

Alex and Kerry,

Thank you so much for your efforts this weekend. The workshop was very helpful to me in solidifying my understanding of how you use your favorite indicators to identify candidates. Watching you during trade execution was really the best part for me, as I have not had any good models for that. I'm sure this experience will make me a better trader and for that I am most grateful to you both.

Also, Kerry, thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. It was a pleasure meeting Karen and Tiffany and I hope we will someday have a chance to welcome y'all to our home here in Maryland. This is why I love being a member of SpikeTrade, it is more than just a business and we get to make some wonderful friends in the process.

Alex & Kerry,

Thank you for pouring your energies into creating SpikeTrade. Being able to see Spikers' presentations in the video vault & from the reunion, along with actually watching their execution of picks is very helpful. Just as I can see when I've been impulsive and handled my entry or exit incorrectly, this site allows me to see the same with others' trades. Also, I am so appreciative of the daily emails assessing the current overall market.

Thank you for the wonderful job you are doing with your site, it may not be pretty! (joking) but man, I am addicted to your emails, just by being a member I've become a better trader, the info, the videos, the comments, the friendly competition... I've been trading for 2 years and was down 10% in my daytrading account and 10% in my investing... Now after less than 6 months I'm back to even on my daytrading account and starting to come back on my investing account!

Dear Alex & Kerry,
I am impressed with the hard work and devotion you both put into the website, providing such great value. The Spike Group Reunion was a fantastic opportunity to meet and learn from other Spike Group members. I value your insights in the NH-NL index and other market indices. You regularly identify low risk entries (long and short) which helps me to better time my trades. Thank you.

Hi Kerry & Alex,

On spiketrade....you should be proud. It's the first thing I log onto in the morning. Although I was the Global Head of Trading at one of the world's largest financial institutions, responsible for billions of $ of capital.....I had never heard of Force Index and Elder Ray! I now swear by the Triple Screen method....which can often stop me following the Spikers recommendations as whereas the weekly trends may be favourable....the Elder Ray oscillator won't let pull the trigger.

Dear Alex & Kerry,
I found out that the weekly exercise to find a good pick to submit is extremely useful. Seeing the results in my equity curve is the best reward for me, and very encouraging. Your comments on the market is usually the first email I open every morning!

Hi Alex,

Your market comments tonight really made a point. So easy for me at times to get drawn into the market hype. Your comments tonight really peer through the smoke and examine the true present conditions without hype, sales pitch, etc. Both yours and Kerry's market assessment truly help me tune out the "hypesters".
Thanks! All is well here on the "retirement farm". Garden good; bike race and sailing race over the weekend; triathlon coming up. Life is good!

Hello Alex and Kerry,

I want to thank you for your great efforts teaching the traders' community how to be profitable. I have just begun as a member and in addition to the benefits of my membership I have noticed a great improvement in my trading just by submitting my picks and trying to get a rebate on my membership. So far I have won the performance bonus 3 times this month, it's a great incentive!

Dear Alex,

I just had to comment on your March 28th SpikeSpeak about paying attention, change and improvement, underscored by your humidor reward system.

To me, this exemplifies a deep commitment to teaching and the generosity to share the experience of your own trading room, to show us how to learn from our mistakes by letting us see yours. A great lesson!

Hello Alex & Kerry,

Thank you both for keeping it real! It's not easy as mentors to open up your journals, your thoughts of probabilities and share trading ideas with those that look up to you for knowledge and guidance. It's very reassuring for novices like me to know that we are listening and learning from the right people. For me, I am confident that, aside form my determination I have all the tools I need as trader (camps, coaching, spiketrade, books) to get me to the next level of trading.

Here's a photo of me wearing the great Spike Group hat you awarded me for being the "Most Active Blogger". I thoroughly enjoy working with you and the Spike Group as we hone our trading skills, and appreciate being able to contribute to the Spike Blog. I never really know what I think until I write it, so the process is very revealing; and I just hope the Spikers who read the comments find them helpful. Thanks again for putting the Spike Group together.

Dear Kerry,

I really enjoyed the video-meeting. I am amazed how much information I got from SpikeTrade website. Thank you and Dr. Elder for creating such a great resource. I traded 6 stocks from the current week's pick. It was hard for me to do such short time trades (I hold mostly for a swing of several weeks, unless I am stopped out), but it worked very good. So I am learning.... I was listening to several presentations from the video vault, it was very, very useful. I also love your daily comments.

Dear Alex and Kerry,

It's been an incredibly valuable year for me in terms of what I have learned through my Spike Trade experience. It's scary to think of the money I have wasted in the past throwing money at stocks from a misguided trade plan with no rhyme or reason. Kudos to you guys for putting together this stock trading training university where the competition fuels the pursuit to excel. It's the only place I know of that provides true training wheels for traders!
