Excellent Technical Trader
Stewie is analytical, patient trader with lot of good personal qualities. I joined Art of Trading (AoT) nine months ago, I have great experience. He mails around 5 high quality setups every night, he also calls 1-3 plays per day in AoT chat room. He also email/tweet frequent update about market condition and individual stocks charts. Personally I made 20% net profit from his setup/plays in May month alone. Some of his setup/plays on May month are: FDX, KSU, AMTD, SCHW, C, BAC. There are lot of experienced technical day/swing traders chat in chat room, fun chatting with group of like minded traders. He is little careful in calling plays, he would never call wild, rumor/news driven stocks, which is good. If you are intermediate/new and want to be professional trader and making decent profit with less drama/risk, please consider joining AoT.

Good heart - but look at the numbers
Stewie is a good guy. He puts in the work and he wants his traders to be successful. There are a few core setups that he focuses on, and you can learn those setups by joining his service.

Stewie is a decent trader. He can be unfocused, and trades a little scared from time to time, but he has the attribute that is most important: he limits his losses to prevent blowing up.

So as a totally new trader you can learn something from joining his service.

But if you are considering joining his service based on the posted performance, you should consider the following.

I was a member of his service for over a year. I used a computer program to take his alerts in as timely and accurate a manner as possible. I took 297 of Stewie's alerts, all with a position size of $7500 per trade (on a $30K) account. My realized win rate was 55%, and total profit net of fees was $1213.37. On a $30K account that is a 4% return net of fees. And what is important to understand is that I was paying $50/month, not the current rate of $100/month. If I had been paying the current fees, I would have netted less than $500 dollars. That's a return not worth the risk to my account, and if you look at an equity curve of those 297 trades, including the $100/month fee it is decidedly range bound. That's when I decided to drop the service.

Now don't get me wrong. I didn't lose money as an Art of Trading member, and that is probably a lot better than most services. But if you are considering signing up for his service, and you have a relatively small account to trade, you shouldn't really expect to make much money just taking his alerts.

It's also important to understand that my experienced performance significantly lags Stewie's posted performance. This is not because he is dishonest, but because you are unlikely to get executions at the alert prices. Limit orders will not solve the problem, because the issue isn't the entries, it is the exits, particularly on losses. The variance between my actual results and Stewie's posted results were always greater on losses than on wins.

There is one more number you should consider. I took all of Stewie's alerts and calculated the result I *would* have achieved if I got executions at his alert prices, given my position size. The profit from the posted performance results was $7354.94 (a healthy 25% return on a 30K account). But the actual result that I experienced in my account was $2763.37. That is *NOT* net of fees. Commissions and slippage ate up over 60% of the posted performance! And then fees ate up another 20%, leaving me with a realized return that was 16.5% of the posted return.

Obviously the bigger the account you have to trade, the more you can dilute the drag of fees, but I doubt you can improve much on the slippage I experienced.

So my balanced assessment is this: if you are looking for a chat room to join to learn to trade stocks, and you come to like Stewie's trading style, then the trades will probably pay for your membership, and you may get plenty of value from that. But if you are trading a relatively small account and are salivating at the posted performance results, understand that your actual returns on a risk-adjusted basis are going to leave something to be desired.

Exceptional service and excellent trader
I highly recommend Stewie's Art of Trading subscription to anyone who is a swing trader.

Stewie is a hard-working trader and educator. He emails members high quality setups every night, with suggested buy points, stop loss, and targets. For those who are able to monitor the stock market, focusing on these setups alone will make you money on a consistent basis. He also sends alerts by text and email of when he enters and exit trades, which is an excellent service for those who cannot be monitoring the stock market all the time.

From following Stewie, one learns not only the types of setups that work, but Stewie also observes the direction and tone of the market in general in order to choose the proper setups for any given condition. One also learns proper risk management through appropriate stop losses and areas in which to take profit.

Of course, following anyone's setups requires trust. After having interacted with Stewie and having been a part of the service for two months, I believe that not only is Stewie an excellent and experienced trader, he is a generally a good person. Even though he has many members, whenever I asked a question by email, I always received a prompt and detailed response. One time, in the middle of the day, I had a question about a potential trade, and he immediately sent a detailed chart. Another time, he made a chart with detailed annotations throughout.

Stewie has created an environment of teamwork in the chatroom where traders help each other throughout the day. He is present throughout the trading day to answer questions and offer suggestions on ongoing trade activities.

The service was already excellent and people who are a part of it seemed to have been satisfied. Yet, Stewie strives to find ways to improve his service and offer even greater value. I believe that this, in itself, speaks volumes. As of this month, he made a few changes that took his service to an even higher level. Now, with a private Twitter feed, members who have full time jobs and cannot be in the chat room can get important information in a timely manner.

Although this service will benefit many different types of traders, my opinion is that this service is best for the swing trader who is patient and willing to enter a handful of trades a week and willing to hold them over night. But no matter what type of trader you are, Stewie offers a free 14-day trial; that is plenty of time to see if the service is right for you.

High Quality Investment
I joined AOT in September 2012...within days I could tell my money was well spent. I knew for sure when I made that money back and then some on the first trade I ever made with the AOT group on a call by Stewie.

The Chat Room - Great bunch of people from all over the world in the room...great backgrounds from different business sectors, great personalities. Everyone brings something to the table, and FULL DISCLOSURE is key. If a trade does or does not work, more importantly, there is a lot of input and help as to what went wrong and how to avoid it moving forward. The criticism is crustructive 100% of the time. That right there is worth the VERY small fee to be a part of the AOT group.



The Trades - Stewie lays out everything...he will preface it by telling us he's got his eye on it and waiting for the right entry. He takes the entry, and prompted emails out a chart as to what he is seeing, along with what his stop loss is. Again, winners and loser(rarely) are discussed and dissected for future success.



The Stew - an emensely knowledgable trader, who knows what he is doing. He does his homework after hours and is ALWAYS available if you need to to speak to him or email him with something. He takes ownership of everything he does. Most importantly he is personable, you can joke around with him, vent, jump for joy, etc...and he is still steady as she goes. A calming presence like that in a market like this is invaluable.





If I havent made myself clear...YES AOT is money in the bank!

#1
I'v been with all of the popular trading services so i have a lot i can comepare AOT to.. first off if you're a swing trader stop reading this review and sign up lol because i have never witnessed anyone better at swing trading.. 2nd with that being said im not much of a swing trader (which that mite change soon) for daytraders like myself AOT has top notch watchlists which is the #1 reason why i trade with them...iv traded at other sites who trade thin stocks n pump them and dump them... AOT is nothing like that which is a big + IMO.. 3rd a fun group of good traders in the chatroom.. 4th and final great cusomter service Stew is a stand up guy, much respect to him and one hell of a teacher..AOT is the total package...

Great Service - worth every cent
Trader Stewie provides an awesome service for a very fair price. Best of all, he is man of integrity. I eventually moved on from the service since I wasn't able to continue trading actively due to life circumstances, and somehow I didn't turn off my service properly. I contacted him two months later and he refunded me without question. I challenge you to find anyone who would handle this circumstance so graciously.

The service itself is excellent if you are looking to daytrade or swing stocks. Stewie sends out nightly watchlists setting you up for the next day. During the day he sends out timely alerts for when to enter or exit a position. I am a bit of cynic so I watched the entry and exit prices he noted in his emails for his executions very closely at first, and they were always realistic. There was never a circumstance where he magically got filled 20 cents below the market at the time of the alert.

While the picks themselves are quite valuable, I think the deeper value the service provides is learning to understanding the process that a successful trader goes through to make selections. Further, there was a recurrent theme of managing your emotions effectively to be profitable. On occasion when Stewie had a couple losers he explain how to psychologically handle losers, how to govern your speed of position entry, etc.

This is the kind of information that allows a trader to build their own foundation to a successful trading career. For this reason, I recommend the service without reservation.

honest and transparent trader
I've been in stewie's trading room since oct 2011, and his had just two losing months, very impressive considering present markets . He posts all his trades and discusses both winning and losing trades in chatroom : discussion on losing trades is probaly more important ! SO along with total transparency , your also learning what to spot in breakout ( momentum ) trades, your also making money as 98% of email alerts are tradable ( Since oct i've probaly missed 5 alerts ) and most importantly he has a knack for telling when its time to stay in or out of the market .

Using this service you'll find yourself not overtrading as he does about 7-8 trades a week . Stewie is a trader whose mantra is "less is more ", he keeps repeating this because its probaly the most important thing you'll learn from him . Theres a time in trading when your just better off taking no trades .

I live in ireland and and find the trading the us markets very handy as i usually finish the day job for the market open 2.30 gmt . I dream someday of doing this fulltime , but everyday since joining this service this dream is getting more real !

The Art Of Trading is great value for your money
I think this subscription service is above the other services I have tried in the past. The personal service you get is far superior to the other subscription serivces that I have tried. Stewie gives updates throughout out the day so you never are left guessing what to do next. He provides entry points and exit points that help you maximize the trade. His charts are also of great value as well. I would highly suggest you try The Art Of TRADING out
