All of the testimonials below are unsolicited and real, and come from traders all over the world. I regularly receive notes with kind words from traders, and I am happy that they have found my ideas helpful as they pursue their goal of making money trading.

I finished the video course this month - It has been quite an experience. The course was masters class level in terms of quality of content/material and instruction. The course is an incredible value.
The high level of professionalism of the support and community was extremely refreshing and appreciated. The additional tools and options – like the trade room, encyclopedia, forums, daily set ups, etc. were all very complimentary to the course and are actively helping to evolve my understanding and experience.
I feel fortunate that this was the first trading course I have tried. I did not have to waste a lot of time/money going in the wrong direction. I do have a professional background in the Financial Technology industry but not specific to trading. I began researching day trading and technical analysis in early 2019 and found the concept of the two-legged pull back being sold by many different sites. After researching further, I found that Al Brooks was considered the father of price action and decided I would rather go to the source than spin offs.
For others looking to learn to trade - Al Brooks Price Action Trading is all you need. Here are the top 10 things I love about this course and the add 0ns - including the encyclopedia, daily set ups, trading room, etc.:
1) If you are a beginner - Al does a perfect job of answering questions and giving instruction without being discouraging at all. He is consistent and patient. Trading is difficult and he knows it. He is extremely empathetic to what beginners through.
2) The level of professionalism of the community, the administrator, Richard and our teacher, Al, is top notch. Al assumes you are a beginner and takes you through everything with extreme thoughtfulness and care.
3) If you miss something in the trading room, it is recorded, so it is easy to go back and catch up.
4) Al is consistently telling us what is wrong with certain trades or set ups. He teaches you to be very, very selective about the trades you take. I often find myself about to do something and he will say just before...."now...do you really want to be buying at the top of...." It is like he knows what you are thinking when you are learning, and a lot of times helps you think further through it. A lot of times in the course, I would find myself asking a question and then moments later, Al answers the question.
5) All of the material and information shared in the room, blogs, course, etc. is very consistent and repetitive. Even though the material is detailed and heavy, you have multiple opportunities to absorb and reinforce the learning. The repetition helps you work through the complexity of things over time.
6.) There is support from peers and administration in the forums available and everyone is just there to learn, share or teach and has been incredibly helpful...
7) It is very exciting when you begin to see the math in trades, know where a measured move target is or know where a magnet is that the market is racing too, This course teaches you to understand the market through price action.
8) For me, the trading and price action concepts are easier to grasp.... Trade management and having patience is difficult. That takes a lot of time and practice in a live environment. Follow Al's advice and trade the micro emini and prove you can make $50 a day on 1 contract for a defined period and then slowly increase your risk exposure.
9) The bar by bar analysis provided is extremely helpful You can go back and review and learn with the analysis he provides.
10) This course gives you the ability to be self-reliant. But it is not fast or easy.
It is rare to find a person that is willing to teach something so valuable to others. Al's only reward in all of this appears to be the satisfaction of a job well done and gifting others opportunity in life. I think that is a beautiful legacy to share and I hope I can do the same someday.
Thank you, Al. Words cannot fully express my gratitude. -Kelly
I wanted to take a moment and thank both Al and Richard for the influence you've had on my trading career thus far.
Al is undoubtedly a genius and the Price Action Course is the best investment I've ever made in my education. Since starting the course I've seen incredible improvement in my trading and feel confident that I can do this!
My 3 trading accounts have grown by 820%, 150%, 100%, respectively since beginning to trade back in March of this year.
I first messaged Richard asking for insight on how price action would help me to stay in positions longer and avoid jumping out at 10 cent gains for fear of losing money. Nowadays, I repeatedly swing for +$1. My win percentage is 72% and my profit factor is 8.
In saying all this, I just thought you might appreciate a success story for all the work Al and Richard do to service the community. It doesn't go unnoticed and is changing lives, like mine.
Thank you, stay well, and happy trading 🙂
I've just watched my first 10 videos and I'm flabbergasted at the quality of your teaching(s). I've already found two trade setups (entry & exit) that I used to think were good trades and after you explain context and price action it's makes perfect sense why I was a classic beginner and loser.
It's clear that in the videos I'm listening to the voice of a professional trader (over 30 years I believe) who is providing the real-world training required to become successful. I can't thank you enough.
I've spent thousands of dollars on various teachings that I see now are horribly incomplete and nonsensical. I noticed that these other "training programs" are woefully inadequate and confuse beginners with unnecessary minutia, all while they contradict themselves and constantly throw silly material-gain-fantasy-life-baloney at us. Don't get me wrong, I think all these "trainings" likely have SOME value, but they're FAR from the quality you are providing.
I would highly suggest to all traders they drop all the other gurus, tipsters, apps, indicators, stock picks etc., and purchase your well thought out and THOROUGH training materials. The reason I invested in your training Al, is because I saw you on a YouTube video where you were interviewed by a nice young man with a French accent. I was thrilled when you started to speak -- your humble demeanor and sincere face expressions made me feel I was finally listening to someone who is honest.
The fact you grew up at first in Canada helped too. Honestly, my father is very much like you in a humble and understated tone of voice and body language -- even in clothing choices. My father is also a brilliant man that comes across so humble that people in his presence are never fully aware of the mental giant in their midst. Interestingly enough, he too has always been a great teacher and enjoys helping people achieve excellence in aviation.
Thank you so much Al -- you worked REALLY hard to provide the best trading course on the planet and you didn't NEED to for profit. You did it because you want to share your experience. Very rare for a professional trader!!! I want you to know that I realize just because I have the BEST trading course in the world right now doesn't mean I'll succeed -- I have to finish all the work and review it multiple times, AND I have to develop a professional trader's mindset -- learn to monitor emotion and trade my way. (comfortable).
I like daily charts where I can see resistance and support over a longer period of time and I'm not experienced enough to scalp or day trade (I've tried it and I found it exhausting). My account is $2000 and I never take positions more than $300 -- until I am extremely consistent it will stay that way.
Was this the longest testimonial? I hope so.
I wish you well Al and hope all your kids visit lots and call lots 😉

There is no other course on this planet comparable to Al Brooks. It is so amazing. I would only suggest to add feature to cast it on TV so that my entire family can enjoy it.
Once one starts watching course, automatically brain starts to wire with concepts. You just need little bit of patience to get hang of it, after that it is just move. I think it is wrong question, because you can not compare this course with any other.....It is incredible.
First thing when I got into trading world it was so confusing. There are millions of ways to trade but most forums suggested price action is king. Since I work full time, I joined one Forex course which was only talking about pin bars/hammers etc as price action. Then I found Al Brooks, god of price action, and things really started making sense.
I am software engineer, for my brain to trust anything I need logic, why things happen the way and what is next. Al has explained all minute details... Just go through all videos - practice a lot and compare your chart with Al's slides. (Key to success) - While taking any trade look for risk reward and position sizing - always keep in mind there will always be next setup.
I have nothing else to share...only that, I am making moneyyyy now!!!
Profound. This course is just massive and comprehensive. Brooks video course encompasses everything a complete beginner needs to know to become a competent professional. Absolutely NO BS trading material.
By far and away the best material I have ever come across on trading. I spent many years and countless dollars looking for the "real thing." Even EXTREMELY famous traders in the trading world. This is the ONLY course I ever needed and I'll ever need again.
Start with Al! Please. If you are looking to day trade, no question you are going to go do stupid stuff and lose a lot of money. At least START with Al's material so you'll have a fighting chance.
Al has left a massive body of work much of it free. I wish I would have gone through the course first as the more you listen and watch, the more it all makes sense. Cheapest and best trading decision I ever made!
I can say that this course is the VERY FIRST that helped me to become profitable. My path was not simple at all, I lost A LOT in the markets. And it took me MANY years. Now I can read the markets much differently and make moooonnneeeeyyyy!! Amazing!
This course is second to none. I can compare with some six or seven other courses that I took and paid for in many years. I do not regret and believe that the other courses where I was still missing SOMETHING made me ready for Al´s books and course.
If you want to save YEARS of looking for a really successful and profitable trading, just take this course.
I AM HAPPY THAT I FOUND YOU. Actually there was only one sentence about Al Brooks in a course by Lance Beggs and it inspired to me to find more information. Then I purchased the books and the course and finally I arrived to where I was heading for such a terribly long time.
THANK YOU AL THAT YOU ARE REALLY WILLING TO TEACH PEOPLE AND DO NOT HIDE ANYTHING FROM US.
Čabová, Czech Republic
After reading about 200 books on trading on everything from options to system design to portfolio management I came across Dr. Brooks first book in 2010. Then I bought the three volume set, and finally the video course. It changed my trading.
Some of the topics aspiring professional traders must learn are:
- Market structure
- Trading systems
- Risk management
- Position sizing
- Chart analysis
- Portfolio management
- Biography of other traders
- Trading psychology
- Statistical analysis
- Inter-market analysis
If you just read the 3 top books on the above topics, you're looking at about 30 books or around 9000 pages. It is at least a four-year project. If this is too much work and you're now looking for a short cut, the single best thing to learn is price action analysis. I believe Al's course is the most efficient way to learn it, because I have taken most of the good courses in the US over the years and have also worked with mentors who are professional traders, spending close to $70K on my education!
The value of this body of work might not be readily evident but I can tell you based on my own studies that it is simply unbeatable. It teaches you how to think about price action in a functional manner and how to trade professionally using simple rules that connect together in a systematic way. It will free you from everything: news, gurus, web sites, signal generator software, trading apps, indicators, etc. Which means you will have a great advantage over other traders who are dependent on them.
There is an incredible amount of information in the entire package. I have already spent probably more than 2000 hours studying price action but still find little things in the course that I didn't noticed in previous passes (I have already read Al's books at least 4 times and watched the videos many more times).
Understanding price action is powerful knowledge but it also needs lots of practice to become an effective skill. Once it becomes a skill, your trading can easily substitute a salary even if you trade a small position size. It gave me the confidence to move from a lucrative IT consulting career to full time trading this year. It was neither easy nor quick, but it is worth it.
You don't need any other material beyond what you will find in the videos and books to train yourself. The magic formula is the information plus passion and many hours of your time.
If you are new to it, the best place to start is the Guidelines on the back of "Trading Price Action Reversals" book and then read the Introduction. With videos, simply start at module number one. I strongly encourage you to read the books, too. They will give you depth of knowledge through in-depth study of many more examples, which you will need when you start trading.
Enjoy the journey.
Hello aspiring traders,
My name is Richard Vicente. I am 49 years old and I am a board certified nuclear medicine technologist with a BS degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology. I also have 2 master degrees: MHA….Master of Health Administration and a Master degree in Accounting. I am eligible to sit for the CPA exam in the state of Florida. And I am also currently finishing a MBA degree.
The reason I am bringing up my education is its relevance to trading. I have studied more books on trading, statistics, physics and management then one person can imagine. I have also been trying to trade FX, options, futures and stocks for more than 12 years. I have lost a large amount of money trying to trade. I took 5 to 6 years off after major losses in 2008. I have also bought and studied every book there is on candle stick patterns and other indicators. All the education and books are good for building knowledge, but they are useless unless you understand how price action works. I have learned this from the course, which has only been about 1 month.
So, the reason I took the time to write this testimony is my appreciation for Dr. Brook’s experience and his teaching ability. I started back trading 3 months ago (futures…..NQ, YM and ES contracts) with the same frustration and disappointment thinking the market is setting me up to take my money. Then about 1 month ago, before almost calling it quits, I purchased Dr. Brook’s trading course.
I have not completed the course yet… I am at about 85% of the way through the course. But the important thing is I am spotting price action entries and patterns that I never knew existed and I am having more success now than ever before. I have more confidence when entering the market.
For example, I have lost a large amount of money trying to enter Eminis’ with 3 contracts. One of the techniques you will learn in the course, which I have been trying to figure out for years, is how to scale into a position after entering. One problem I imagine traders have is entering with more than 1 contract- only to find the market moves against them and exit because the move against them is large. Then the market springs back in their original direction after exiting. This is how I lost thousands in the last 3 months! This one technique, scaling in, alone is worth purchasing the course!
All I can say and suggest is to purchase Al Brook’s trading course. The course will give you an advantage you never thought was possible. I believe the cost of the course will help stop the losses and set you on the path to be profitable.
St Johns Florida
I started studying trading about 4 years ago, but never really got anywhere until I discovered BrooksPA (the study of price action, bar by bar, as it has become known). I am now employed by a proprietary trading firm and trade the Emini futures for a living.
I believe, exactly as Al does, that technicals control the markets. Indeed knowledge of price action analysis and trade management is all that is needed to profitably trade any major market on any time frame. Studying Al's work will give you those skills if you follow his advise closely and persevere.
I cannot recommend this video course enough. I have watched these videos many times over and they literally changed my life!
I have spent 5,000 hours or 2.5 years with obsessively studying trading. My demo trades were excellent. But, when I switched to live trades in Dec. 2018, after 21 trades only, my ROI went down to -4.2%. I lost 6% of my $1000 account, trading micro lots.
I was already familiar with Al’s material – I knew he is the best PA trader, dead or alive, and his courses are affordable. In Feb 2019 I signed up for the Brooks Trading Course, and after two months of persistent studying, I entered the market again – my stats changed in the blink of an eye. In 60 micro trades my ROI climbed to 3.7%, in 100 trades to 7.41% and in 115 trades to 13.50%. If you convert this into mini (130.5%) or standard lots (1500%) the percentage you’ll get is very pleasing. And this is only the beginning… 🙂
I’ve been spending 5 hours/day on average with the Course. First, I watch a video. Then, I type it out, word by word, make snapshots of the slides, upload them into Paint and reference each bar/trendline/gap et cetera Al talks about. This takes me about a week. Third time I watch it again with the help of my notes and much greater understanding. At the same time my Mt4 is open and am looking for real time examples on the market. As a result, my calculations about market behavior became almost impeccable, thanks to Al Brooks.
For the first time in my life, I enter the market with full confidence and see myself as a pro-trader in the near future – very big thanks to Al and Richard's help. 🙂

Dear Dr. Brooks:
This extraordinary week in the markets has been surprisingly rewarding for me as a new trader. I started in April in hopes of replacing my full-time job by the end of the year, but then I was fired unexpectedly in May. I have saved and invested all my life, so I had reserves available for making a career change.
The promise of self-direction, profits, and fun that futures trading offers surely is elusive for beginners. The lessons I have learned best have come from making costly mistakes; however, second only to mistakes as a teacher is the abundance of knowledge that you share.
I am a perpetual student in life, and as a new trader, I began reading and studying numerous resources, careful to avoid gimmicks and games. Your books jumped out quickly in my search for quality--fact based--resources. I have purchased two, so far, and will get to the third after more reading. Your video training course also is a tremendous resource that I continue to review and learn from.
I want to say to you that the vast and comprehensive knowledge that you have gained, chosen to share, and articulated across media has been life altering for me. Your mastery of your subject is inspiring and of incalculable benefit to me and surely to countless other contemporaries.
It is my great fortune to be a beginning trader at the particular time that you have chosen to offer a daily trading room. I am a grateful subscriber, and I plan to remain one for as long as you choose to offer the trading room. For one, you make it quite affordable. Of greatest value, though, is that while I am studying charts each day, I feel like I am consulting with you about what I see, and you are a standout expert. If my reading and yours differ, I reconsider mine!
This week, I replaced three months of my former salary by trading.
I know it's not an ordinary week, but I might easily have failed to capitalize on the markets this week without so many things I have learned from you.
Although I know relatively little after only six months in my new career, I aspire to mastery, over several years, and there is no more efficient route to mastery than to have a truly great teacher. Thank you for sharing so much of what you know. I am enormously grateful, sir.
I purchased Al's course about 4 months ago and I am currently going through each video for the second time. This course is the most in depth course on trading that I have ever come across, especially for the price. I have taken many courses and read many books and this course trumps them all.
I have been a professional trader for 10 years and this course has taken my trading to the next level. The methodology that Al teaches can be used in any market on any time frame. I wish I would have come across this course years ago.
Anybody looking to start trading or looking to improve your trading this course will help immensely.
Flagler Beach, FL. USA
My name is Josh, I am 27 years old and from Central Florida. I have been a student of Al's for 3 years, and have been trading full time for the past 2. Although I currently do not make much money as I only trade Forex and continue to build my position size, I am slowly becoming a consistent and Professional trader. However, I know I have a life long career in front of me which allows me to work from home and spend time with my new born son; all thanks to Al.
In the trading world today, there are very few educators out there who actually know what they are talking about. Most "guru's" are out looking for "new blood" of traders to buy their system or indicator. This is simply not the case with Al Brooks and his course. In this sea of scam artists, Al is a genuine trader seeking to pass on his knowledge. I personally know the information he presents to be true as I use and apply it every day.
I am in no way saying Al is going to turn you into a Professional trader. That is up to you, and you alone. This is a hard business to learn and it takes many hours of hard work and effort on your part to make it. I often say "life is hard, trading is harder." But the information Al has presented makes trading easier to understand and shortens the learning curve tremendously.
I consider myself to be an "old school" Al student, as I prefer the books over the (old) video course. However the new video course is extremely informative and provides great detail in a form which is easier to understand. I would not be where I am today without Al Brooks.
Remember; Greatness does not come overnight. The path to becoming a trader is long and hard, but the journey is worth it. I wish you the best in your trading career, and good luck on your journey.
Winter Haven, FL, USA
I purchased the course in Feb 2015 after about three years of searching for guidance on learning to trade the markets. I could already tell from the sample videos that Al's approach was much different that most guides I had encountered. After purchasing the course I could see why—he explains why the market moves the way it does (for any chart he is describing in the presentation). He does this in much more detail that I had seen anywhere else. Knowing the 'Why' really helped me grow as a trader. These are things a beginner would never think about (e.g. Bulls who bought at the top of a leg scaled in lower, selling their whole position when the market returned to their entry price creating a double top resistance point).
The course is a crash course (everything you need to know starting out) in becoming a professional trader. I would venture there is more distilled trading knowledge & wisdom in his course than most prop firm traders receive in their initial training. The rest of your trading education can only be completed through market experience. With a price tag of $250 [original course] (unbelievably undervalued!) you have everything you need to get started with a big leg up on all other retail traders.
I have also started subscribing to Al's webinar. This is also extremely reasonable for the value. You get to trade the ES with commentary from a master trader. Today was my first day and Al kept me off my worst habits—Counter trend trading. I can't thank Al enough for the immense amount of help & value I have received from his materials/him.
Thank you Al.
Franklin, TN USA
Al, I have devoured all four of your books and your video course (including the 2014 updated edition and all of which I highly recommend for the serious trader) – and listened to you in your room for many months. You have taught me a LOT and your clarification to me (ref blog comment below) is probably the one piece of guidance that has resonated with me the most. And when I needed it the most.
Thanks Al for your comprehensive answer. You are leaving my in no doubt that fundamental analysis is a complete waste of time for a retail trader. I am delighted that I asked you this question because your answer has just liberated my future trading – I am free to focus exclusively on price action, which I enjoy. My gut instinct kept telling me to just study price action – but I was drawn to fundamental analysis – almost against my will. Maybe I was looking for ‘certainty’.
Al Brooks' books & courses have changed my life to be a good trader.
I can't thank Al Brooks enough for what he has done to share his invaluable knowledge with all of us.
I found his methodology from his books and courses many years ago. Since then, I've tried to learn, practice and apply his way. And now, I've been improving quite a lot.
I am pleased to say that Al Brooks' knowledge is genuine. The more you practice, the better you are.
Thank you very much and I wish Al good health and a happy family. 🙂
I have been learning Forex trading for 8 years. I know I wanted to learn price action trading, so I studied candle patterns, chart patterns, support and resistance etc. However I was still not profitable because I was missing the pieces that bind everything together.
While I have heard of some online guru who has 5 years trading experience and already making very good profit. Some of my friends only have two years experience, already posting many blogs on Facebook to give trading signals. So I thought maybe I am not cut out to be trader since I am very risk averse person.
Not until I heard of Al Brooks' price action. First I bought his books, found it really hard to digest. So I put aside for two to three years. Somehow I heard about him again, I gave another shot reading the books, funny thing is it seems I understand more now.
Since I am visual person, I decided to invest in his course. Only 349 USD, so much cheaper than outside courses. I also have read the introduction on the book, Al Brooks openly mentioned it took him 10 years to be consistently profitable and the journey he went through--I guess many parts of the struggles are very familiar with my own experience except I am nowhere near as clever as him. That statement struck me that Al Brooks is a very honest person because taking 10 years to be consistent profitable does not seem like a brag.
After 4 months into his video courses, my live trading performance, from losing to make 20% return in 6 months. I couldn't be more grateful to Al Brooks.
I have not talked with him in person, but I believe whoever wants to learn price action, his course is a gem.
Al Brooks, your hard work is very much appreciated. I just want you to know. Thank you very much - there is no word to describe my gratitude.
May God bless you always.
So I bought your course for $250... (original course) What a rip off!! I really feel like I ripped YOU off. How can you possibly only charge $250 for that?? It is obvious that you are teaching because you love teaching. I will probably make that money back on my first trade! I feel like you should be getting a percentage or something from me.
This course is not about showing me a few tricks of the trade. You are training me for a career. I can hardly sleep because I can't tear myself away from the videos. And I only eat soft foods because I am afraid that a crunchy bite might make me miss something.
I have been looking for clear cut training that is simplified in such a way to help me lock in profits without getting a headache from all the mumbo jumbo indicators and patterns. Thank you Al Brooks for taking your time to train me. My appreciation will go beyond what you can ever know.
From me and my family, Thank You!!
Chesapeake Va, USA
Regarding the May 3, 2016 Webinar: I have some familiarity with Al's approach through his video course and some time on one of his books. I thought this webinar was outstanding, and since it represents a preview of his updated course, I look forward to going through the new course.
One suggestion that I would make to students of this video is to listen more than one time. In fact, when you have time, listen to 5 or 10 minute segments... and then look at one of your current charts and think through what you just listened to.
You will quadruple the learning experience, and you pick up of subtleties that you missed the first two or three times (and don't fret at what you initially missed... it is part of the process).
Many thanks Al.

Good Day Al/Fellow Traders
Prior to buying this course, I burnt out a couple a small accounts ($1000-$2000) trying to copy indicators and 'systems' I had bought online. I stopped trading for 2 years.
Before coming across good words said about Al on Quora, I peddled with the idea of trying out some new systems, thinking that my prior failure was due to lack of proper risk management. Then I went to the online review sites...
"Where is his trading results if he has such a good 'system'?"
"Eccentric as they come."
So I thought, "This is different. He may be onto something." I went ahead and purchased this course. That was about three months ago.
I started the lessons from the beginning, taking notes and reviewing charts and trying to formulate rules for my own system whilst trading with a real $500 account.
Today, three months later with 34% of the first section of the course completed, for the first time in my life I can sit back and see that I may be getting somewhere. Risking Max 4% per trade (when I see a fat pitch) I have made enough to cover the cost of the course and then some!!!
And, you know what, I've been totally put off 'systems', thank you. I don't want Al or anyone else for that matter to show me their trades. That's a dead end route. "Teach a man to fish...."
Indicators are so passe. I no longer fear trading around news times. I love market open' traps.
Thank you, Al, for showing me the right way. The journey has just begun I know, but right now the journey is the adventure.
Al, after completing your training program...I can only say that it is material in which I will thoroughly cover a second time and keep closest to my side when trading....no other trading knowledge has prompted me to do this.
Your daily updates are golden and focused on principles you have taught. Please keep producing forever.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us Al....much appreciated.
Bay City, MI, USA
Having read all of Al's books and articles, I find that his Trading Course is an invaluable aid to my understanding of the markets. It clarifies his ideas and methods and has improved my trading process immensely.
Al has by far the most comprehensive and sophisticated knowledge of Price Action that I've ever encountered, and his sincere desire to pass this on to other traders is unparalleled.
Hi Al, Your book is a very important body of work to the trading community. I am part of a very impassioned group of followers… Would you ever consider putting on something like a 3-day seminar wherein the first day would possibly be a Sunday training day followed by two days that are live trading for the first couple hours followed by more training (and possibly more trading) the balance of those days? I can get quite a few seats filled for such an event.”
Al, Again and I must say as usual, I am not disappointed with your course. It is fantastic!! Previously, I read all four books, but the videos and being able to watch and listen to your pinpoint instructions makes this such a great addition to the books. Thanks again!!!
I am a beginner. For me, your course is soooo much easier to understand than the books. I hope to some day trade either large cap stocks, like you advised in your first book, or the emini if I can become successful enough. Thank you for creating the course…The material in the course is extremely understandable. I wish you and your family much health and great happiness.
Hi Al I have purchased your three recent Books and would simply like to say Thank you Al Brooks for SUBSTANTIALLY improving my Family’s Lifestyle. You have…totally changed the course of my trading from Stressful Minor Profits to relaxed serious profitability.
Once again thank you Regards
Hi Al, I ended up buying your course. Great course and obviously a lot of material to digest. I’ve been studying and trading for about two years now and my account has been bleeding slowly.
Lately though I’ve been on a bit of a run and I think its because I don’t watch CNBC anymore. I think subconsciously I was being influenced by the news even though I tried to think I wasn’t.
This course is what I need to at least stay in the game long enough to become profitable. Discretionary price action fits my personality and beliefs about the reality of markets.
I think my main problem has been trade management among several others. I have some good ideas but I always seem to find a way to get out of my best trades too early by getting trapped out and also from time to time take a few emotional trades but I’m aware of my issues and I am diligently working through them by documenting mistakes in my trade journal and subsequent post analysis.
Everything you teach helps but the concepts about the trader’s equation, trade management (especially the concept of “actual risk”), and market context (not candlestick patterns) have changed my market reality:)
When one starts to understand the “why” or reason as to what happening on a chart and what it will likely lead to, gives you an edge. This makes it much easier to relax and trade with confidence knowing the math will work out. Thanks for passing along your wealth of experience.
Hi Al, I have just completed my first month’s webinar, after reading your 4 books (I have to say I more studied than read the books). Your approach is truly honest and genuine and its a breath of fresh air compared to the many many training courses I have been on to date.
I have been trying to make it as a trader now for the last 4 years and have spent many thousands of $$ and taken a hell of a lot of physiological head-ache and while I’m sorry I didn’t come across your work earlier, at least better late than never.
…Suffice to say, I am an avid student of yours and you are truly a great mentor for me, I really admire within the webinar, your honesty, focus and work ethic, as the Americans say-Awesome!.
I live in Ireland and I have recommended all your books to three of my friends/traders who are also just about finished your 4 books and are also great fans of yours. All the best Al and just a big thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Hi Al, To say that you kick a$$ is a huge understatement. I’ve been a struggling trader for so long it’s not funny, and now, finally, thanks to you, thanks to your generosity, I’m starting to make a profit.
Over the years I’ve gone through numerous books and courses, but I’ve never written to an author before. There was no need to.
This course is different, above ALL the rest! Thank you and God bless you in everything you do.
I cannot express in words how it feels to turn the corner after fumbling for more than ten years. All because I picked up a course for $249 and all of a sudden everything came together and fell into place.
You should be very proud of not only what you’ve achieved as a trader but also what you’ve achieved as a person, for sharing real knowledge, for making a difference. I’ll be forever grateful.
Video course = Super!
Books = Great!
Video course + Books = Super Great!!
I finally enjoy trading and look forward to the challenge, rather than being anxious about it.
I started with your book, Trading Price Action Trends, a year or so ago, but couldn't quite grasp all the detail.
I bought the video course a few months ago, and that's when things clicked.
After one round of the course, I bought the other two books. Now, the books and the course complement and reinforce one other. The blogs and videos on the Brooks Trading Course site are now lucid (to me).
Here's a technique that seems to work well for me:
Re-watch the videos in the course, one by one. Note terms or topics you need help with, then refer to the books for clarification. Expand knowledge and recognition.
Watch videos on the Trading Course site. Note terms or topics you need help with, then refer to the books for clarification. Expand knowledge and recognition.
Trade patiently, using principles you fully understand, and always with appropriate management. Evaluate your trades based on whether you followed your rules appropriately, or not.
Do it again (and again).
…And not that your need another compliment, but I find your course material very helpful…Your course has really opened my eyes to thinking in terms of probability, something that doesn’t come easy for a ‘deterministic’ engineer!
You provide a true service to the independent, small-scale trader.
I wanted to thank you for the incredibly VALUABLE training, education and mentorship you have provided. I have read all of your books and have taken the course. Needless to say that there is a lifetime worth of reading in your books would be a huge understatement . I have to go back and reference things quite often, but the main theme of my note here is that your education has given me the "edge" I need to be a profitable trader.
Yesterday, March 21, we had a HUGE selloff. Something I had been positioning for, for the last couple weeks. I KNEW there would be selloff because you taught me how to recognize it coming way before the talking "IDIOTS" on TV even knew it was on their doorstep.
There is NOT ONE trading educator out there that called the selloff ....TO THE DAY like you did. I know you've been mentioning the likelihood of this event for a couple weeks, but your post yesterday in the Intra-day update was... To. The. Day. I don't think there is anyone out there that could have done that. HOWEVER, I was ready for it.
I had my best day trading day EVER yesterday because I saw what the charts were saying. I made 16K in less than 8 hours of trading. I had put on my largest positions the morning of the event because it looked and "felt" like the day.
I do a little more Swing trading than you do because I'm not able to sit in front of a computer all day because I am a sales rep for my profession. You probably would be been upset because I held a couple positions too long and didn't keep to your risk cardinal rules. BUT.. like I said, I knew it was coming and was confident.
I wanted to say thanks for the excellent information and education you provide. I am a believer and cant thank you enough for the education I will have for the rest of my trading career. Keep up the great work. You have a big fan and proponent out here in Portland, OR.

Hey Al… I’m an institutional equity trader in London and I’m reading your books whilst planning to get back into doing some prop-trading in my spare time (or if I get fired in these tough times for the brokerage business!). Your material is easily the most useful, logical and engaging of all the many trading books I’ve studied over the years so I’d like to say a big thank you for what must have been such a lengthy and taxing endeavor – in writing out your thoughts and approach. You taking the time to put together all this material has made a huge difference for me and I really appreciate it. I wish you all the best.
Hey Al I have been in your daily trading room now for several months and slowly but surely I am becoming a profitable trader. Just wanted to thank you for everything you do to help us out. Really appreciate it. It’s hard work but I love it.
Hi Al, …I had also wanted to thank you (but was told my message was too long) for what you did for me this past year. Looking back at 2010, your book along with your trading room helped fill many holes and reinforce ideas I had collected over the years of trying all sort of methods and can say it hit right home. While I still have much to learn I just wanted to thank you for finally (after many years) giving me that moment of clarity which has given me the comfort level to move fully forward in this hard but interesting business of trading.
Hi, Al, Can’t tell you how much of a difference your videos have made in my trading. Night and day! And much more relaxed doing it your way and not trying to be a fortune teller anymore. Just following the institutional action. Thanks!
Hi, Dr.Brooks, … I have found your material in general and this course in particular by far the most advanced, thorough and comprehensive approach to price action trading I’ve seen. Respectfully,
I feel like I’m back in school. I’ve needed to repeat a few modules already, but I see areas in my trading I can apply your lessons and that I can improve on right away. Super course.
Al: …just a quick note to tell you how much I appreciate your course. Never before have I read or studied any material that gives so much understanding of Market Conditions (context) and how to trade the setups based on those conditions.
I’m a 20-year novice trader, meaning that I’ve never made any consistent profits. Your course is giving me great hope that I might significantly improve.
I’m about half way through the videos, and am very pleased with each one. You are a gifted instructor.
Hi Al, I have no idea why I am writing to you. I just ‘felt’ that I should. I am a newbie trader who started out trading the Indian markets (NSE) about a year and a few months ago…Yours was one of the first and only books I have ever wanted to read about the markets because I know that knowing how to read the price action is everything…Thanks for your great work. I am so thankful there are souls like you on this earth who are sharing what they know so others can learn.
I have completed (a first review) of your 53 videos. Excellent material and a great compliment to your four books.
In my humble opinion your format facilitates a fantastic learning experience and on a personal level I have taken a lot from your course. Also very user friendly.
…This is a very thorough trading course: explaining in detail your recommended methodologies on preparation and analysis, trade entry/execution, trade management and exit, performance review and corrective actions.
This course also gives a deep insight into how the institutions trade, the mathematics of trading and the psychology of trading. The course is very well structured and facilitates a great learning experience. The integrity you exhibit throughout this course is refreshing and in my experience totally unique.
Excellent and strongly recommended for the serious trader.
Hello Mr. Al!
I am not sure if you remember me but I am the guy from Brazil. This time I have great news to tell you…I am almost every day making money in the market!…There is not enough words to thank you, but I will light a candle and send good Buddhist vibrations for you, wherever you are… thanking your kindness to spend your time teaching! You are a real trader and have a very generous heart sharing what you know. All the best!
Hi, Al, I have recently bought your trading course [and] even though my trading has improved greatly since reading your books, I still struggled with consistency and the same old newbie mistakes of not wanting to sell new lows or new highs.
I have since improved my trading even more and just want to thank you once again for all the hard work you have put in. The charts and step by step walk through of trades are also very helpful.
Have a great final day of the week and like I said a couple of months ago, I will keep you updated when I go full-time and make a success of this.
I am currently a professional sportsman and am looking to make trading my job after sport. Been going at it 3 years and have read your books about 9 months ago and am finally getting consecutive winning weeks and am now looking to double my small account before going big.
Thanks again, you have changed my life ??
Past performance does not guarantee future performance.
Ok, I am ready to get the Brooks Trading Course now.
