Order Flow Mastery FAQ
1. Why is the Mastery Course so big?
I told myself that either I would share everything I knew about the markets, or nothing at all. Why? Because I know how much pain you can go through learning how to trade but feeling that there are certain “missing elements” or “missing secrets” that people are not talking about that are preventing you from achieving success.
In creating the mastery course, I went back and visualized and remembered what is was like to first start trading. I remember the heartaches, the despair, the roadblocks, the mindset struggles, etc. I remember a lot of what special tricks, strategies, and blueprints I desperately needed in order to help me progress to the next level. In order to help me feel that I was really making progress and see the light at the end of the tunnel. Every roadblock I came across and recalled, I have included the solution in the mastery course. That is why it is so large. Everything from position sizing roadblocks, to technical indicator traps, to conspiracy theory traps, to uninformed liquidity and macro mindset, to false stop loss thinking, etc.
I learned throughout the trading journey that there were literally hundreds of secrets about the market that people either were not saying anything about, or did not know about.
Therefore by teaching you everything I know it helps you to reduce losses, improve profitability and perceive more inefficiencies by executing the order flow mastery super system.
2. Too Expensive?
3. What makes a great trading book / course?
5. Do I need to purchase any expensive software and indicators?
You do not need to purchase any other expensive software or indicators. You do not need any expensive forex robots, or black box algorithms, or expertly coded technical indicators that people sell you for thousands of dollars.
You don’t need a Bloomberg Terminal. You don’t need a 10 monitor setup. (Although those things would certainly be nice). You don’t need to pay for any other services.
You can trade successfully without any monthly cost.
You don’t have to pay for charting because the forex brokers give it to you for free.
You don’t have to pay for information flow, because you can get very sufficient information flow and all that you need for free.
All you need to do is to perceive something which the market doesn’t fully understand yet, place your trades, then you can profit.
You do not need to spend a penny more on any fancy news software or technical indicators or forex robots. You can implement everything in the mastery course using just simple and free tools such as free forex charting with demo accounts, free IFR news service with Oanda, etc.
You don’t need any inside information or secret information or special information. You don’t need any of that. You just need to learn the rock solid trading foundations for why the markets move, why the market can move in the near future, and develop a killer trading mindset that puts it all together.
The Order Flow Mastery Course teaches you everything you need to know.
6. Why did I create this website?
Years ago I started a trading journal which recorded my many market insights. After a few years of that, it turned out that I enjoyed writing. I enjoy to write about a topic such as trading, which I feel I know a lot about. I know, with a high degree of certainty, that I can drastically cut down the time it takes for you to become a trader.
Also because I know that even if you start from scratch, with the proper habits, mindset principles, strategies, techniques, dedication, etc, you too can become a successful trader with an identifiable, sustainable edge that lasts decades into the future. Even if you are starting from zero skill level, you too can make it as a trader if you have the right information at your disposal.
I also believe in giving back to the next generation of traders. I think it is very fortunate that there have been so many great trading books written by successful traders that talk about their strategies and life experiences. They have helped to shorten my learning curve drastically. Back in 1950 there weren’t very many trading books available. Now there are hundreds and thousands available. If you can find the right ones to read, like the ones on my recommended book list, then they can drastically shorten the learning curve. What previously took other people 10, 20, 30 or 50 years to figure out, you can now accomplish in just a few years. This is all because other successful traders have chosen to write books, or written articles, or given interviews in sharing their trading journey and life journey, etc.
Right at this very moment, there are millions of people in every part of the world, who are attempting to learn how to trade or invest successfully. They are wondering what steps they can take in order to help them achieve their trading and investing goals. They want to better themselves and are looking for the right information, right strategies, etc.
Some of them will reach their goals, but most of them will not. The vast majority of people do not achieve trading success for a variety of reasons.
They awaken one day and look back over what they did over the previous years and find out that they have been spinning their wheels for a long time. They have been stuck in the same spot for a very long time. They get discouraged and give up. They give up on their dreams.
7. Am I doing this for the money?
I had a few theories that I wanted to test out with this website. Namely:
1. Could I actually explain what I do in a detailed and simple way to other people?
2. Will the act of forcing myself to explain a concept such as trading to other people cause me to develop even better trading concepts and market clarity?
3. Will creating the mastery course cause a jump in trading performance similar to George Soros writing his book The Alchemy of Finance helped him to have a triple digit year in 1985?
The answer is yes to all of them.
8. How quickly can you become a trader?
This depends on many variables including:
- Time availability
- Time willing to commit
- Capital availability
- And many more..
What I can do is help you avoid a 10-year horror story you read about on some trading forums about some people who have struggled for a decade yet not made any real progress. I can drastically cut down the time it takes with the techniques and blueprints in the mastery course.
9. The Mastery Course is just so large. Do I really have to read and implement everything?
I would recommend you read through it in order at least once. Some lessons are quick and only take you three minutes. Others can be a little bit longer as they take up ten, or twenty, or thirty minutes.
It it extremely comprehensive and thorough. I have left no stone unturned.
You do not have to implement everything to get massive value and profits out of it. You may only like a few sections of the mastery course. Some of the other ones you may ignore or disregard. But I can assure you, that the lessons and sections that you like, you will gain massive value out of them.
10. What is the difference between the Order Flow Mastery Course and other trading courses out there?
11. Is this the same as Darkstar’s book?
12. How many times should I read the mastery course?[insert PTJ quote from Reminiscences about how every time he reads it, he learns something new]
13. What is the difference between the Order Flow Mastery Course and other classic trading books such as Reminiscences, Market Wizards, etc?
14. Do your strategies work with other markets besides forex?
A majority of the information and charts in the order flow mastery course is related to the forex market. However, I have also taught the core trading concepts in such a way that they can be applied to any financial market, whether it is stocks, bonds, futures, commodities, currencies, etc. There are some examples of stocks, futures, and commodities in the order flow mastery course. Just the majority of the charts are for the forex market.
15. I have been on the trading forums extensively, but I have not heard much about order flow trading or global macro trading. Why is that so?
There is something I have learned in transforming myself into an order flow trader. This is the principle of: the less it is talked about, the more profit potential exists. The more people on the trading forums are avoiding talking about order flow trading or global macro trading, or news trading, then as a general rule, the more profit potential exists. The less people that understand it and can explain it, then the more profit potential exists in it. So long as you can break the market down into its core principles and know how to apply it, then you can be a successful trader. The order flow mastery course breaks the market down into its core principles.
16. I heard from a forum guru that news trading doesn’t work?
Another principles I have learned is that: the more it is misunderstood, the more profit potential exists. This is true as long as what you are analyzing has the potential to move the market and you can break that does into the core principles of speculation and know how to apply it.
As a general rule, the people on the trading forums are trying to trade the news the wrong way. They are attempting to trade the news using some bracket system, or chart pattern or price pattern system. Trying to trade the news using moving averages, stochastics, head and shoulders patterns, MACD divergence, engulfing candlestick patterns, etc, all doesn’t work.
The order flow mastery course teaches you how to trade the news the “right way” using the core principles of speculation such as order flow, liquidity, volatility, expectations, scenarios, and global macro analysis.
17. What if I already know the things in the mastery course?
It is possible that you already know 1% or 5% or 10% of what is in the mastery course. However, I can assure you that there is a whole lot that is new. There are certain strategies and techniques that I have never seen anyone do or explain as I do in the mastery course. There are certain mindset and trading strategies, that I have never revealed to anyone. I have kept them secret for years and years. And they will not be released outside the mastery course.
18. What if your products don’t fit my trading personality?
I have made every effort not just to share my personal trading system. In creating the order flow mastery course, I realized that not everyone will trade the exact same way as I do. That is perfectly fine. Every human being and trader is unique. You have your own flair, feeling and judgment. That is why I not only shared my own personal trading system, but also the principles of speculation as well. I teach you the foundations of the market and the timeless principles of speculation. So that armed with those incredible foundations and proper market beliefs, you can go and develop something that fits your personality.
If, at the end of reading the mastery course, you find that order flow trading is not for you and you want to go back to technical indicators or chart patterns or forex robots, or whatever you like, then simply ask for a refund within the refund date, and I will grant your refund no questions asked. I will wish you well on your trading journey so that you find something that fits your personality.
19. This seems like it will be a lot of work?
I used to spend hundreds and thousands of hours searching for the holy grail and hopping from trading system to trading system. I spent hours tweaking the technical indicators and searching for the perfect forex robot. I tried the “easy way” to get rich. It didn’t work. I wasted two years of my life. I don’t want you to waste two years of your life.
If I had just spent those hundreds and thousands of hours actually working on the true market foundations, the really good exercises, habits, blueprints, strategies, etc I would of achieved my trading goals and market happiness much faster.
20. Is what you do tape reading using Time and Sales and Depth of Market?
No! I do not use any Time and Sales, or Depth of Market, or Level II in my trading or anything I teach. I do use a form of tape reading, but it is using order flow methods. When you have knowledge about the rock solid foundations of them market such as order flow, liquidity, volatility, expectations, scenarios, sentiment, stops, etc, then you can engage in tape reading and day trade without using any Time & Sales / DoM / Level II screen. If you want to use Time & Sales / DoM / Level II screen, then you are of course welcome to use that. I just teach you how to trade without them, so you do not need to be glued to a Level II or Time & Sales screen.
I assure you, the greatest trades in history were not placed using Time & Sales / DoM / Level II screen.
Price objection: explain quality, superiority, service (justify price). Break down into units amount so the $360 price only comes to $1 a day. Price is relative – competitor may be cheaper but what about quality and service. Point out any differences in the products.
I can’t Afford it objection: Point out terms and use the selling money at a discount technique.
Unknown objection: Use testimonials, discuss your association with company, validates it’s management, products, services, etc.
Product is too new objection: Show test results, testimonials, newness means progress, your company has not spent a lot on advertising but has chosen to put their money into research, development and improvement.
Product criticism objection: Use facts to overcome criticism, don’t get defensive. Express faith in the company
Rumor objection: I heard, such ‘n, such. If it’s unfounded, explain why. If someone had an actual problem, explain what was done to correct it. If it’s a complaint from someone they know, offer to talk to them and see what you can do about fixing the problem.
Personal Tie Objection: I’ve done business with them so long, they’re family, etc. Discuss product or service superiority. Go for a portion of the business; don’t try to get it all, then give them a good reason to switch completely.
Satisfied and Loyalty Objection: Point out savings, benefits, superiority, first duty is to themselves. Allow a test situation to help them break those ties.
I have to talk it over objection: Usually this pertains to a spouse. Point out other decisions they make by themselves. If it doesn’t work arrange a meeting as soon as possible. Preferably call them then and get approval or meeting set-up.
What he have is till ok objection: Focus on new features which makes other product or service obsolete. Domonstrate increased production, efficiency, savings, reduced maintenance costs, etc.
Question: I’ve never done anything like this before and I’m a little worried?
Question: Will the more people buying this harm the profitability?
Question: I’m frankly not in very good financial shape right now. Is this really the best investment of limited resources?
Question: How much money will this make me?
Why would I talk about my method instead of grinding out a profit in complete silence without anyone else knowing?
To make a difference in the world. Instead of hoarding all the trading secrets to myself, I can share them with the world. Then other people can go make money. Other people can go avoid the catastrophic losses that some people suffered in 2008.
Why am I doing this?
I wish I had the Order Flow Mastery Course when I first started. It would of saved me from despair and depression.
I get asked about trading and order flow so often, there is no way that I can answer all of the questions. I get asked about what is order flow, how do you know you have a trading edge, what is a trading edge, does the holy grail exist, how do you interpret and handle all the information flow, how do you use stop hunting, how do you spend your days.
Answering and continuing to answer all these questions has taken a tremendous amount of my personal time. So I decided to create the Order Flow Mastery Course and share it with the world. It has been an efficient use of my time.
A value to value relationship. I am giving you my ideas, which I believe can make your life more pleasurable, for free on the trading blog, in which I hope you to purchase my products, which will exchange even more ideas – beliefs, strategies, techniques, blueprints, etc that can make your life much more pleasurable – in exchange for a bit of your money.
Is there a forum in the member section?
There is currently no forum in the members section. I don’t want you to have to sift through pages and posts to find the very best information. I want you to have access to the best information I can deliver – in the mastery course, and in any bonus content I provide. I want you to have that information directly and not mixed in with any other stuff.
Each trader is on their path unique path. I don’t want you to feel anxiety about how someone else may have learned something faster than you or doing better than you and feel that you are not understanding the material. I want you to pursue your own unique trading path.[insert more fear of not making progress from forums.]
