- Just wanted to let you know that your "Real Success" video tapes
are fantastic. I have been through them 3-times since purchase and mostly use
the methodology to successfully position trade Wheat and Live Cattle.
J. T. Barragan - I have reviewed the first 4
Real Success tapes several times and found them Good! They certainly helped me
to appreciate the use of Bollinger Bands. I have read about Bollinger Bands in
many trading books, in particular the comments by John Bollinger himself in
"Understanding Bollinger Bands" by Edward Dobson. Some of the
comments in the book can be better appreciated by watching the tapes - the
tapes certainly prove they work! Tapes 5 and 6 - I liked the use of the
"Pivot Point" terminology instead of "Higher Swing High" -
"Higher Swing Low."
I feel very confident my trading will continue to improve as I
become more familiar with your methodology - thanks to you.
Joe Murdock - It's Friday afternoon after the
close. I just thought I'd give you some feedback after the first full week of
trading with the "Real Success" trading methodology. I received the
tapes and immediately locked myself in the "immersion room" to see if
I could digest them before Monday's opening. To be honest, at first I was a
little taken aback. After trading successfully for more than a year with the
original "Real Success" method, where the hell were my trusted
swing-highs and swing-lows? What is this stuff about Keltner reversal bars?
What is a Keltner extreme move? How am I going to trade 1-minute bars? After
the initial shock wore off I realized that you had, not only, made the
methodology in the first series more sound, but enhanced and expanded upon it
with completely new material. Great job. By Monday morning I thought was
comfortable enough to boot up and give it try. I wasn't. I paper traded all
day. I kept watching the screen, referring to the tapes, watching the screen .
. . etc . . . By the end of the day I was both angry with myself for not
trusting the methodology, and exhilarated by the results. I couldn't wait for
Tuesday. To save time, I'll give you just the highlights.
From Tuesday through Friday by the lunch break I had made
twenty three trades. (more than normal) I had seven winners in a row. (modest),
one loser, (again modest) seven winners, one loser, and then six winners, one
loser. Now the best, using simply the most basic tenant of the method, I was
able to catch a large part of the 1125 point move to the downside that occurred
about twenty minutes form the close. What a way to go into the weekend!!! Do I
expect to keep up this pace. Probably not. Does the "Real Success"
methodology work. You tell me. Honesty Dave, I did nothing but what I was
taught on the tapes. Sure feel does play a part. You go to great pains to point
out that no method is 100% mechanical. But I can only tell you of my
experience. Some days its there, some days it's not. But it sure helps to have
tools you can believe in. I have been trading my own account for about 5 years.
It wasn't until I got my hands on the "Real Success" tapes that I
started to make consistent money. In my opinion, Real Success is very powerful.
But I do know that my experience has been nothing but positive. There is a
selfish part of me that hopes I can keep this new knowledge all to myself. But
the larger part, the guy who was frustrated and struggling for three years
would hope that anyone who is in that same boat would do themselves a big favor
and start seriously studying either or both of this really terrific work.
Thanks again Dave. I sorry I really haven't contributed very much to the CTCN
Newsletter, but I'm really not much of a technical guy, and pretty much like to
mind my own business. But damn, when someone has been as helpful as you have
I've got to stick my head up and say "Great job." Please let me know
when the next series is coming out. I'll be watching.
Walter Tweedie - I feel I must also express my
gratitude to you for your work. Your latest video series has helped my trading
skills and results a lot. I am currently using candlestick charts with a
Keltner Channel overlay, plus an additional 50 or 100 period moving average, in
a 1 or 5 minute time frame. I also use market profile to ascertain additional
support and resistance levels which help a lot. I trade predominately the
Nikkei 225, and find this market is suitable to our time zone and has plenty to
offer most days by way of ranges even in a non trending market. Unlike Greg, I
like to sleep at nights so I haven't looked at the American markets, but if
$5000 per week is in the offering for 1 contract I might have to review this!!
The quality of the material on your site is exceptional and I feel we have a
great forum for learning. If more members were to have some input by way of
communication, I think we would all benefit. In my trading I agree with Dave
that it is better not to have too many indicators as it tended to make me
hesitate more than I should, also the CNN News clouds the vision more than it
N. Oss - The tapes from the "Real
Success" course were very helpful in my trading. Everything fell into
place with the free report you give to people from your website regarding swing
J. Murdock - I'm sorry it has taken me so long
to send you the promised thank you, but I'm afraid you will have to shoulder
some of the blame. For the past month I have been completely absorbed in
watching and trading the "Real Success Methodology." Sitting here
trying to write this I'm finding it hard to find the words to appropriately
express my gratitude and amazement. Fortunately, for me, the materials arrived
just in time for me to go over them 2 or 3 times, and participate in crude,
heating oil and wheat just as they were just starting to move. Thank you. I
have in the past, sent for, reviewed and returned a number of "sure fire
systems." Some of the material was O.K., but none were equal to the hype.
As far as I'm concerned, the "Real Success Methodology" is the real
thing. I actually stumbled across the CTCN website quite by accident. I was
looking for a website where I could get information about the Gann techniques.
Fortunately I stayed long enough to browse your site and read a couple of the
back newsletters, and just generally poke around. Boy, am I glad I did. Based
on what I perceived to be a genuine desire to host a forum where traders could
exchange thoughts and information, I immediately subscribed for two years,
ordered 14 back issues of the CTCN newsletters, and the Gann materials as well.
The Gann information is superb! In a small and very concise volume you took the
mystery out of the Gann mumbo-gumbo. After applying what I read, I literally
gasped when I applied the angle tool to a number of back charts. Probably one
of the most valuable things I was able to see was how difficult it would be to
use only Gann to profitably trade the markets short-term. For a very small
price you saved me thousands of dollars. Based upon that experience, I went
back to the CTCN website a number of times. I had seen the "Real Success
Methodology" a few times, but never considered spending $800 or $900 for
any trading method. I was reluctant. After downloading and reading the entire
"Real Success . . ." website, I was convinced not only of your
sincerity, but also of the potential value of the materials. I closed my eyes,
made the call and ordered. Believe me it was the best decision (next to
proposing to my wife) I have ever made. At the risk of getting corny, you via,
"Real Success Methodology," have without a doubt changed my life, and
allowed a long time dream to come true. I had planned to move my family to
rural Oregon this coming Fall, and was driving myself nuts looking for a way I
could simply drop out of a very unrewarding and frustrating corporate
environment to trade full-time. You have provided me with the means to do so.
Thank you again. In closing I just what to emphasize that if the "Real
Success Methodology" is studied and applied you can and will be

also. I am planning on becoming a full-time daytrader. I got downsized at my
job. I have done some (about 3-months worth) commodities trading during the
last 18-years. I like your balanced approach toward trading. Trading has to be
approached with a workmanlike low stress approach so that it can be done for
the long-term to create a manageable livelihood, not trying to become a
millionaire the first month or year at it. I now can give the studying and
paper trading my full-time attention.
Gerry Quigley - I finished the Real Success
videos a few days ago and am very impressed. The simplicity and success of the
technique is truly an eye-opening experience. Your discussion and use of the
clusters of market orders around support, resistance and trend lines is
masterful. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to get off to a
successful start in daytrading the S&P.

Subsequent Editor's Note:
The Real Success method is about 80% mechanical. There's a certain degree of
"art to the science" involving the last 20% or so. However, the
important 20% will be taught to you in our videos and trading manual. CTCN's

greater detail those famous articles in our hands-on futures trading videos and

intraday-day charts until I get a little more data to work with. I really
believe I have valid or good bet signals, but what concerns me most is will I
be able to consistently trade my signals? I knew about this very fundamental
and serious psychological problem long before they were mentioned in CTCN.
However, it's always good to have a successful trader agree with you. I rank
this reinforcement of valid truths about the market as badly needed

Comments on Past Commodity Trading Club News Issues - George
Bashar (July issue) - My question is, why would a trader who has a proven,
successful system sell it to anyone else? Futures trading, as we all know, is a
zero-sum game. For every $1,000 one person "wins," someone else has
to "lose" $1,000. Therefore, could someone selling a book, system or
running a seminar, please explain why, if your system is so good, would you not
keep it to yourself? And please spare me the explanation of altruism or
humanitarianism or sharing your thoughts with others to enhance the mutual
learning process. (The two article reprints below give answers to this
Note:Commodity traders are frequently highly suspicious as to
why vendors sell their knowledge or their trading system, rather than use it
themselves as their main source of income. The truth is, it's usually much more
lucrative and easier selling knowledge and teaching others, compared to doing
For example, I recently listened to a speech by Robert Allen,
the well-known author of the popular book on how to buy real estate with no
down payment titled "Nothing Down." Even though he is an expert on
the subject and has successfully invested in 125 properties, he admits he makes
much more money as a vendor of the "nothing down" knowledge versus
doing it himself. He also says it is easier, less time consuming, less risky,
and has far greater profit potential being a vendor of information on how to do
it, rather than actually doing it.
If you can market and sell your own product, regardless of
what it is, you can make much more money teaching others how to do it versus
just doing it yourself. This is true in many diverse types of businesses,
including trading and investing. If you think about it, it makes sense why this
is true -- because knowledge is power.
Remember the old Bible Proverb "Knowledge is of more
value than gold, receive my instructions and not silver, and knowledge rather
than gold." In fact, due to the tremendous profit potential trading
commodities successfully, commodity futures knowledge is probably more valuable
than any other endeavor. This is why there's nothing at all wrong or suspicious
about someone being a vendor rather than trading full-time for a living.
For the Most Part Vendor Prices are Fair & An Incredible
Bargain! (Re-printed from May issue of CTCN) by new member Bob Aughey - There's
always lots of discussion on the subject of vendor prices, particularly trading
systems. While it's certainly true there's some overpriced garbage out there, I
think for the most part, pricing is fair and often an incredible bargain.
I have heard the argument that most trading system programs
are less complex to develop and program than the average word processing
program, so therefore, it should cost the same or less. I think that there is
an important difference, not the least of which is that software designed by
large corporations for mass distribution is just that, mass distributed. Volume
sales will always allow for smaller gross profit per unit. What I feel is the
more important issue to support higher prices for trading software is the
disclosing of valuable secrets . . . trade secrets.
Why people sell their secrets is another subject for
discussion, but personally, I think that plain old pride of authorship is the
main reason. But back to the subject here.
An incredible amount of work goes into creating a quality
trading system that can be marketed to the trading public. That is the trading
public, not the general public. After hundreds or even thousands of hours of
development and testing, is it realistic to think someone should be able to buy
the product for next to nothing?
Trading system vendors sell their products to a very tiny
slice of the software end-user pie. You have to wonder why anyone would devote
so much time, money and expertise to market a product to such a small audience.
We are fortunate that some do.
The next time you power up your PC and call up your favorite
trading system, analysis or toolbox program, and at the end of the session you
are armed with trading signals in which you have confidence and that have
resulted in making you money in the toughest financial arena in the world, take
a moment to reflect on the fact that system vendors have to make a living, just
like traders and everybody else.
Lastly, when you consider the purchase of any software
product, do us all a favor: Do your homework! Ask the tough questions. When you
are satisfied, pay the money.
You will remember the quality of the product and the support
long after you have forgotten the price. Remember that knowledgeable consumers
are always the best defense against Holy Grail merchants. They also make the

amount of effort to make the time to sit and put your thoughts in writing. It
took me 3-months of procrastinating to write this. writers in CTCN and other
successful traders have alluded to it, that as a trader matures and becomes
more profitable he uses fewer and fewer indicators. In my searching for the

actively trading Real Traders, at the various seminars I have attended.

some thoughts and perhaps a path with the potential to introduce you through
your desire and hard work to someone who can help you. I took the plunge to

very painfully TRUE! Dale Johnson had a nice article in the last issue. I have
to disagree with him when he says a person trading daily bar charts will make
as much as the intra-day trader over a year's time. I haven't proven it, but I
see much more potential profits from daytrading.

Fojo - October issue of Commodity Traders Club News: I just recently began my

many useful ideas for my own trading. I am very interested in day trading the
S&P markets and have read with great enthusiasm and encouragement the articles
written in CTCN. Many writers state in their articles that they use Keltner
Bands as channels, but I have been unable to find any such indicators in any
software package. I wonder if it might be possible to find out how they
construct the Keltner Bands or what software they use to chart them. I would
appreciate your assistance in this matter.

It is a good service for my current needs. I enjoy the stories regarding fill

followed CTCN with considerable interest since daytrading the stock indexes has
come to be my main interest (forsaking position trading, bellies, bonds,

probably won't be able to attend a seminar, but would be interested in
purchasing videos, notes, books, etc., which might be available, if the price
wasn't too high.

by successful traders. They clearly dispel the notion that you cannot make a
living from trading. I like his mental approach to trading and have found that
most of the problems a trader has is of the mental variety. Reading CTCN has
definitely paid off for me. I continue to look forward to each issue for all
the great ideas that people have discovered and share with their fellow
Dan Fretter - I received an ad in the mail for Commodity
Traders Club News and as I read through some topics, I became interested in
Real Success I immediately sent for a 1-yr. subscription and all back-issues. I
called Dave and asked if he would rush the package. (Thanks a million Dave.)
When I received the back-issues, I devoured CTCN and found that I knew all this
stuff, but I was usually counter-trend rather than with the trend. The next day
I took a trade in the S&P. My first trade was an $825 profit. This stuff
works. Now most of my trades are profitable. I almost went back to my old job,
but now I can stay home trading.
My Wonderful Trading System, So How Come I Can't Make Money Trading It?"
As the Editor of Commodity Trading Club News, I Hear that all the time. It's
because most of the trading systems out there are curve-fitted, either the
system's algorithm or curve-fitted to certain market(s), sometimes just by luck
they happen to work in a specific market. This is not the case with Real
Success ("Real Success . . . Revealed Secrets") methods, which has
been time-tested, and can "work" consistently and with no
optimization involved. "If you weren't born rich, didn't marry money,
haven't won the lottery . . . here's how you may be able to make it on your own
. . ."
Editor's Note: The ideas and methods discussed, along with
and combined with many of our own methods and techniques, are the basis of
CTCN's Real Success Methodology.
You will learn from a proven successful method, which unlike
many other self- proclaimed trading experts (vendors), actually "walks
the talk." However, the "Real Success (Revealed Secrets)"
methodology does in fact do the walk with successful real-time trading
possible from the comfort of your home office. As well-known CTCN member Gary
Smith wrote about those vendors, "They Can Do The Talk, But They Sure
Can't Do The Walk."
