No BS review
I'm going to write this review with the intent of providing valuable information for anyone lurking on this website for the same reasons I had done in the past.

CAUTION

- If you are not serious about trading, this is not for you

- If you are not disciplined, this is not for you

- If you are not willing to embrace failure, this is not for you

- If you don't have an open mind, this is not for you.

How much will it cost you? Anywhere between $2,000 and $10,000 depending on the length of the enrollment.

How much money do you need to start trading once you are ready? I would recommend $2,000 if you want to trade with one contract. Start with 1 contract no matter how confident you may be.

What will you trade? E-mini futures (S&P)

What is the recommended platform? Ninjatrader

How long will it take to be ready? I'm really itching to give a flat number here but the answer is that it really depends on what kind of a person you are. If I had a gun pointing to my head, I would say anywhere between 6 months and 2 years.

FACTS

- This is not a scam

- There are very few consistent, successful traders but there are even fewer successful teachers. You'll find the entire package here. The curriculum is structured such that even a 5 year old can pick it up.

- There is not a whole lot of emphasis on the psychological side of trading. You'll have to figure that out for yourself.

- You can expect to be right an average of 60% of the time. 70% if you put in a lot of work.

- It is safe to say that you can make an average of 1.5 - 2 points per contract per day. That equates to $75 - $100 per day for 1 contract and $750 - $1000 per day on a 10 lot.

What will you take away from the DTA?

- Framing market structure

- Pattern recognition

- Consistency (Not every losing trade is a bad decision. Took a while for me to register this on an emotional level)

- Trading with momentum

- Naked chart analysis

- Anticipating market behavior

- A great platform with tools that will improve your execution

- A basic curriculum to get you started

- Market recaps and live classes that you can watch and participate in

- One on one feedback (THIS WAS KEY TO MY GROWTH)

If you decide on taking the military training, it will accelerate your learning curve because a professional trader will be sitting beside you for a full week, day and night, probing you on every decision you make. It was probably one of the most transformative and uplifting experiences of my life.

CONS

- The DTA blog focuses too much on winning trades and good days. This can be deceptive and misleading. The fact is that there will be ugly days which will be difficult to trade and if you don't stay sharp, you WILL lose a lot of money.

My last stop on my trip to freedom!
The Day Trading Academy is one of the best places I've ever put my money when it comes to value. When it comes to anything related to investments or trading, it is far and above anything else I've exeprienced.

Let me say that I looked at lots of reviews on Marcello and The Day Trading Academy before calling them and finally deciding to join, because in the past I had tried trading courses on stocks, options, forex, and all of them taught a bunch of rules that ultimately didn't work well overall. This seemed different, and it truly is! From the beginning I saw the way they did things was a lot different. They teach things that make so much more sense, like HOW to actually see what the market is doing instead of a rules system where you follow the system but have no clue why the market is behaving the way it is. From the start, everyone I've interacted with at DTA has been awesome. They've been really nice, extremely helpful, and I've learned so much from them! I really can't explain in words how much these guys have helped me in terms of price action knowledge. They are so knowledgable and they all have huge hearts and genuinely want to help by sharing that knowledge. I look at the market so much differently now, and can really feel myself getting a much better feel for WHY price moves in certain ways and where it's going because of that.

For those of you who want bottom line results and specifics, I came from zero experience day trading, and very little experience trying to read what price movement meant, and I had bad habits of being aggressive and over trading. So when I started out Sim trading I was in pretty rough shape, I was losing quite a bit. After just a couple months of working with these guys to correct my bad habits and to start looking at the market the right way, I went from losing 6 points or more per day on tough days, to where I'm now breaking even on average, and at least 75% of my losses are mistakes on my part. It's a pretty amazing feeling to look at a day where I broke even and see how just changing some habits and continuing to train my eye to see things like these guys do could have gone from a 1 point day to a 9 or 10 point day or more, no kidding! That's an amazing feeling because at this point I'm not clearly seeing those things as they are forming live, there's still too much happening and my mind is still trying to assimilate everything they've taught me and I'm still learning. But little by little those things click and I overcome another bad habit, or I start to see something as it is happing, and then jump in and it works, and those little things are such an awesome feeling. It's like when you're learning how to golf for the first time. There are so many things to remember at first with your form that it's a bit overwhelming to go out and just shoot par right away. But as you start forming those habits, you start hitting a few awesome shots here and there, and those sparks of success let you know you're moving in the right direction. That's what it's all about though, putting in the time and effort, making mistakes, learning from them, and correcting them.

And make no mistake, this is not an "easy money" system or get rich quick or anything like that. I've tried those and they do not work. This is an honest "you have to put in the time and effort" school that trains you to see price movement for what it means, and putting everything together. It is a lot of work, and you have to be ready to commit to it. I've had to put in lots and lots of hours, and have gotten discouraged sometimes when I haven't been able to catch on as quickly as I'd like, but with these guys in my corner to encourage me and help me and always point me in the right direction again, I am steadily progressing. They're always there for me to help and provide support, and that has been such a blessing for my countless questions. I don't have the words to describe how thankful I am to every one of these guys who have helped me and are continuing to help me on my road to success and freedom. I'm so thankful and grateful I found them and took the leap and joined. I can honestly say these guys are helping me change my life from a corporate grind and high stress, to freedom and peace and doing something I love. What do you say when someone helps you change your life for the better? Thank you doesn't seem like enough, but truly, thank you Marcello, Zeke, Jonathan, Nikolai and to all the people at DTA for helping me improve my life! :)

Paul

Outstanding experience!
I have been studying day trading for 9 months. One of my problems was fear/ hesitation to take trades. I would watch a trade set up but I wouldn't pull the trigger when the time came. I would then sit frustrated watching the trade perform exactly as I anticipated.

Marcello Arrambide was kind enough to arrange for Manuel Cabrera to give me a week of Military Training. I can't imagine a better experience. Even though Manny was incredibly ill he custom structured a week of training to get me past my trading hurdles. He is funny, enthusiastic, and an amazing teacher.

Both Marcello and Manny are very generous, caring individuals. These days it's hard to find anyone like that who doesn't have a hidden agenda. I feel very fortunate to know them.

Clean Easy System and Gives Results
I have been involved with trading for roughly 3 years. During this time I have met many people and seen many institutions that have offered training programs and even signals around trading.

All of the methodologies I have seen are very different to be able to teach the system that was developed. I have seen systems that have shown strategies that use different intervals of time. I have also seen strategies and systems that use indicators to be able to base decisions on what trades to take. Others have been a combination of these things.

I have already had the opportunity to trade the Forex market. I had a good experience trading with Forex but never had the opportunity to work with a proven system and my decisions were based more on perception.

With The Day Trading Academy I found a system that is easy to understand and the rules are clear. It is predicated on understanding price action and the indicators are just complementary to find precise entry points.

Today, after a month of training I can say that the system allows you to be less nervous. It also allows you to be more calm with the trade setups where in the beginning it is a bit more difficult.

For those people that want to start in the world of day trading I would recommend this strategy with my eyes closed. Just remember that there aren't any perfect methodologies and that constant discipline is what dictates victory in being able to achieve consistency.

Excellent Program: Concise, Simple, Effective
I originally met Marcello in Toronto when he did some meetups. Was surprised that he is such a simple guy that has done so much with his life. I have been following his WanderingTrader exploits for quite some time and finally decided to join his trading academy. As with most people I wanted to make sure that everything was in order before joining.

I attended one of their live classes that Nikolai was running at the time. Nikolai is what they call a master trader that has been through the program already and is successful. I was very surprised that Nikolai was actually trading while he was teaching. They were talking about fills in the room and how he wasn't able to get filled in certain situations. Was very impressed that he was actually trying to capitalize with his trading while he was teaching. I did speak to another one of their master traders, Manny, and he was very upbeat and direct.

Both of these things sold me on the program.

I think there are plenty of reviews here in Investimonials that go into detail about everything that they do. Their support is top notch. Recently a new master trader started teaching, Zeke, and he is excellent as well. I really love how they include different trading instructors that have completely different viewpoints and styles. Zeke and Jonathan (as well as Nikolai) have been paramount in me achieving success at what 90% of people fail at. The focus is on price action, market flow, and structure. Even though they use indicators they seldom focus on them and use it a crutch in order to allow beginners to learn faster when they come on board. It is possible to see consistent gains in the program as well and while I am more of a conservative. The costs of the program are higher than what I am comfortable with but after seeing the value that they provide I can attest to the fact that it is probably under priced. The value of the program is really in the community and coaching. I look forward to meeting Marcello again in his new day trading center in Colombia. I hear rumblings that he is going to host a seminar and I plan on attending. Best of luck trading.

My experience with dta
Hi, my name is Shahin, I'm 21 and I'm from Paris.

I started DTA the 6th of January 2014 and I had no experience at all in trading.

The only thing I knew is that I wanted to know how to daytrade, that's it.

I discovered DTA by my brother, because he was planning his vacation for 2014, and he discovered the blog of Marcello, wandering trader.

First I was a bit suspicious, it's my French side you know :)

But a trader of DTA took contact with us by Skype and then we decided to subscribe.

It was one of my best decisions :)

I went through the curriculum very quickly, maybe 2 weeks and then I started some SIM. Don't take too much time to cover the curriculum, and do all the exercices, I even did some extra ones. It´s very important for our brain to assimilate. Dont be stubborn, of you subscribe you involve your money in the program, so do it according to the rules. Or dont do it. Simple.

I learned fast, you know it's about your financial freedom, who can be patient when it's about that ?

The curriculum is very easy, the leraning process which Marcello made in place, is very helpfull for all the students, with or without any trading experience.

And what push me to learn much faster was the critiques that Jonathan and Nikolai sent to me each time I was doing SIM.

The fact that you have a coach, online, who give you critiques about your work, what you can improve and how you can do it, is excellent, because it put you in all te conditions for success. Each time when I have a question, i can just send an email and I have an answer. This is priceless, seriously.

I also did a military trading with my brother in Medelin in the trading center of Marcello. Our coach for the military was Nikolai.

Seriously, these guys are honest. They can just make their money and enjoy, but instead of that they are putting effort and work for helping people to become successfull like them.

The environment for working in the trading center was really good. It´s like learning at school or doing school at home, you see?

Like I said to Nikolai and Marcello, military trading should be mandatory ! You can be consistent without it but if you want to go faster, this is it. You know it´s like learning tennis from Djokovic during one week. Learn with th best and you become also the best.

It´s really intense, you work in your trading all day, and when you are tired, you still talk about trading. When you close your eyes, you see charts !

But its really good to put our brains into the right condition.

If you want to ask me some question, dont hesitate to email me: sh.naza@gmail.com

DTA will help to achieve one of my precious goals: freedom
My name is Shamir Nazaraly, I am French and I came from Paris, I don't speak English very well so sorry for my misspellings :)

I started with DTA on the 6th January 2014. If you are someone serious who really want to become a successful trader. If you are a person who is not afraid to work hard, who don't find excuses to give up, the day trading Academy will really help you to reach your goal. They are here to find people who want to become successful. I was in Medellin for my military training and I talked many times with Marcello and Nikolai (Master trader) to understand their vision and they really want to change the life of people. They are expert in Day trading but humble and this is really inspiring.

Yes, the curriculum is easy to follow but we have to practice a lot, it can take months or years depends of your time and the amount of work and your desire to succeed. I, myself, spent around 15-20 hours/week to learn trading since the 6th January 2014 in addition to my full time job and gym. In addition to the curriculum, Marcello offers live class: there is a master trader who shows us in live during the market session how to read correctly the market, how to think like a professional. And you know what; the master traders are just students like us who became successful! So it is really possible to become a professional day trader. Marcello offers also Market recaps every day, pointing all opportunity of the day. This is helpful because you can practice if you are able to find all the opportunity you learned with DTA. There are also insight videos; this is like a recap video but more in depth. It is not just about to find the opportunities but also about the understanding of the market behavior. There is also Review class, all questions and aspect of trading, students who want to go through are answered here. And my favorite part of the training is the coaching, you can have a personal coach who sends you critics videos of your chart, he will help you to improve your analysis of market and also psychological aspects, I really like to have a coach, you are not alone in your journey.

As you can see, DTA really want to make us successful and if you want to accelerate your learning process, I highly recommend you to ask for a military training. It will save you months of work. You can have your military training in the DTA center in Medellin or in you city. But if you can, it is better to have the training in the center. Why? Because of barriers you will break. First, having training in one of the beautiful place in the world is great and you will leave with Marcello himself and other master traders in the penthouse, you will be close to them, have fun with them and become friends. You will understand their vision, where they are going. You will see their life style, now I know what will be my life when I will become a successful day trader. It is important to project ourselves in the future, we all need a long term vision, it will help us a lot to keep working hard. You will see all the Colombian traders, it's amazing to be surrounding by traders. The military trading was officially for 5 days but Marcello and Nikolai are so flexible and have so good intentions that I have done more than 5 days training and the extras were just for free. What I learned during the training is: Bar by bar exercise, sims, understanding of market behavior and a lot of about understanding how a professional day trader think. The most important think I learned is where my weaknesses are. Nikolai just show me my problems and in just few days the problem started to disappear, I really liked the results?. After the military trading, expect a lot of work because you will discover your problems in a deeper way and how you should work on. You know, one of the think I hate is to be blind of my weakness, so that’s why I asked for a military trading.

So I hope my feedback will help you guys. Before starting with DTA, I sent some questions to other students; they helped me to take my decision so If you have more questions, don't hesitate to send me an email at nazaralyshamir@gmail.com and I will be happy to help you.

First Day Trading Program that actually works!!!
I thought i would write a review here as you are probably like me six months ago and searching for honest review on The Day Trading Academy on the net so i thought least i could do is write up a review after happy with the results after purchasing the program and to hopefully save you some time/money all the scammers and bullshit artists out there.

Little bit about trading history i have tried multiple Emini Futures Day Trading Programs in the past ranging up-to $7k only to find the person running the course isn't making money from trading and from the fact you are purchasing his program which they don't. I always knew if i found right person who was actually making money day trading emini futures i could model them and do the same.

After trying to find a course for years i gave up and accepted the net is full of scammers and went back to the daily grind of 9-5 working.

I found this course by randomly searching in google for day trading and traveling one day before i went overseas for 2 months holiday and found Marcello's alternative website http://wanderingtrader.com which fascinated me and i subscribed too.

After coming back from my holiday i found out that Marcello had a day trading course where you can learn day trading ( http://thedaytradingacademy.com) and thought to my self be so awesome if i could travel and day trade like him but after doing so many programs in the past i was very cautious to spending more money in investment programs so i just subscribed to his day trading academy youtube channel ( http://www.youtube.com/user/DayTradingAcademy) and would casually watch videos.

After watching most of his youtube videos what really stood out with Marcello compared to other day trading courses and you probably notice this too is that he actually knows his stuff when he talks about the market and trading compared to other courses who just talk about if you sign up now you get 50% off and you can make blah blah $$$ a day LOL

I thought what the heck took the chance and bought the program.

I found the training material to be good as it goes over basics of the market, trends etc which is very helpful for beginner.

After you complete all the material you then proceed to simulation trade with Ninja Trader Program and probably one of the best part of the program is you can go back in time and trade at your own page with live data from the past, speed up the market and trade at your own pace t so you gain experience quicker and not have to wait watching the market live!

The real secret of the program is the mentoring as going through months of simulation trading you are going to have mistakes and losing days and if you have any questions all you have to do is email the mentors and they respond within one day and help you out what you did wrong and give you new perspective why it didn't work which i found very helpful as you are always going to make mistakes at the start

I found live trading rooms great which is usually two times a week from one of the master traders where you can watch his own chart and talks about the market in depth and trades that are valid. They do not actually tell you when to place trades as that is not the point of the course and it is designed so you actually learn and how to day trade by your self for real! if you are looking for a trading room where some one tells you what to do then this isn't the course for you but to be honest isn't that the reason you signed up first place is to learn how to trade not follow someone else and get it your self :)

This course is not a magic pill if you think you can just buy the course and get it straight jump in start making money then you probably kidding your self. You have to put in a lot of work going through videos/material, Sim Trading and constantly asking questions to the mentors to get this but think about it if was this easy everyone would be doing it.

Basically you have all the knowledge at disposal you need to learn how to day trade its wether you are pro-active and apply the knowledge will make the difference you successfully learning to day trade or not.

Whoa long review you probably thinking would i recommend the course and the answer is YES

Good Experience & Learned A Ton
Overall my experience with The Day Trading Academy was a good one. The curriculum was extensive but also very simple which was very easy to digest and put into practice. I also thoroughly enjoyed the community feel of the program as one is given the ability to speak with other experienced traders. Very insightful and inspiring to see that other traders are making a consistent income with the methodology taught by the folks over at The Day Trading Academy. Nikolai's classes were exceptional, very detailed, and in depth. I did have some issues in the very beginning trying to setup my platform but Jonathan and the the crew were very helpful to resolve it immediately. The only negative feedback to which I may provide is that they do not have live classes everyday. On one hand I do like the challenge of trying to learn the concepts on my own but also enjoy the live classes held every week very much.

Look forward to continuing my education with the folks there at The Day Trading Academy.

Took Plunge. Glad I did.
Finally decided to take the plunge with them and I am glad I did. I've learned a lot since I first found Marcello on his WanderingTrader blog. I found the process to be put together very well. The most unique thing I can say about the entire learning process is the ability to be able to connect with other traders. I've spoken to many of the traders that are making money with TDTA and it is great to be able to contact someone about the little thins. Would highly recommend the establishment.
