    Hubert have you forgot about us on
    haven’t seen any webinars or trading ideas e-mailed to me
    in maybe a month. Hey buddy hope it helps. It does but
    I would appreciate more ideas still not comfortable taking trades
    on my own using the tct methods.

    • Jim Kiehl

      Nope I have not forgotten that service is a real conservative low risk service.
      So I have been trying to do my best to keep the trashcan traders out of a lot of this mess.

      First rule of that service do no harm and low risk.

      I think what I need to do is an update for other trade to make it more active
      for those that want and need it.

      Hope it helps

      I will call the admin and have them set up a webinar for next week.

      Hope it helps

    Russ, most brokerage accounts allow you to have simulation accounts. My grandson has one he plays with at Scottrade and I have one at Ninja Trader. You might also check “Stock Charts”. Good luck.

    thanks again

  24. Hubert,

    Thank you so much for this tip!! I’m new to TS and I’ve been wanting to find the tools you use in your charts with no success. Now, I already have them up!!! YAY!!!!

  25. Glynn Wright says:

    Thanks Hubert for the tips on tradestation, I FINALLY got my trust setup and tradestation funded and now I’m looking at the tradestation platform and it looks NOTHING like yours and you have many little tools, like, horiz lines, vert lines, fibinochi lines, where do i get these tools? I have a session setup with tradestation on Tuesday next week May 7 to see what I can learn. I would love to short bonds today but not familiar enough with the platform yet to do that. I used the Charles Schwab platform for a long time and it was VERY limited and nothing like trade station. Looking forward to learning as much as I can from you. I’ve been a free video subscriber for about 7 years, started out as a paid one but had to drop it for financial reasons.

  26. Tradestation is such a powerful platform and not so easy to operate. Your short tutorials hit the spot, they address the subject quickly.
