Accountability
The formula is simple. Do the WORK!!! DTA is about trusting the system, doing the homework, and communication. If you don't trust the system, you won't do the homework. If you don't do the homework, you can't communicate questions and get answers. If you don't communicate and ask questions, you won't learn. If you don't learn, you don't succeed. Anyone who says this system doesn't work, didn't do the WORK. It's obvious.

The quote that reoccurs a lot in these reviews is the "we only have one spot left" sales tactic. Yes, they are in the business of making money. But, think of it this way, if there were plenty of spots left, would you get off your ass and sign up? Or would you sit there and hymn and ha, wondering if you were ready to make a life change? It's a tactic that is used to see just how serious you are. Why would these great teachers waste their time on students who were not dedicated, when there are students that are starving for this information and want to change their lives forever and are willing to take the leap? Think about it.

I saw another review that DTA didn't teach the psychology aspect. That's laughable. Once again, did you communicate that you were hitting a brick wall psychologically? I'm mean really, how bad do these people want it?

One more, "its expensive". Any simple google search on Day Trading Schools and you'll realize that anything less than $10k is a freaking bargain.

So, here's my personal experience:

I wanted to make a change in my life, but didn't know how. I hated my job and my schedule. I didn't even know what day trading was. Then I watched "International House Hunters" at about 1am and Marcello was on finding a place in Columbia. He gave a bit of his back story about traveling the world and being able to do it because of day trading. I have always wanted to travel the world, so my ears perked. I want what this guys got. This began my journey 8 months ago. I did all the research I could on Marcello and day trading. I contacted several day trading schools and got quotes. The Day Trading Academy was a bargain. I figured I had nothing to lose at this point in my life, I was miserable. Lindsay told me, "we only have one spot left". Haha. I knew the tactic, I was in sales for few years as a youngster. I didn't care. I knew what I wanted and they could have told me they had 100 openings. I want what this guys got. Whatever it takes.

*As a side note, given the amount of support and attention that I have received from DTA the past 8 months, it would not surprise me a bit if there were a limited amount of spots. You just can't give this type of personal service if you are over extended.

The WORK began. I hit walls. Chapter 7 took me forever to get through and understand (makes me laugh now, but then, it just didn't click). Remember, this was my first experience of anything to do with day trading or even the stock market. It was all Greek to me. Jonathan was there the whole way, no matter how many times I asked the same question. He was encouraging and patient (He's my mentor, Yo!). Then came Sim trading and the classes. I wanted to strangle Zeke on many occasions. "It could do this, it could do that". Ya, no kidding, but how do I know?! But, Zeke also was patient, firm, and encouraging (He's my mentor Yo!). I thought I was just going to say, F-it all during Sim trading. There was a week when every trade I made went the opposite way. I contacted Lindsay and was like, "I quit! I suck at this! I can't believe I wasted my time on this. I'm just no good at it. You guys taught well, I just don't get it (see, I was accountable)". She talked me through, reminded me of my goals and dreams, gave me some techniques, believed in me, and gave me a psychological pep talk (She's my mentor, Yo!). See the trend here?

As I prepare to go LIVE on Monday, I am confident that I will do great. The nerves are there, but I know, no matter what, my mentors are there for me because I've done the WORK. They're not going to allow me to fail. If I fail, it's because I didn't ask for help. I want what this guys got. Do you?

P.S. Every email that I have sent to Marcello he has responded to. As a mater of fact, every email that I have sent to anyone at DTA has been responded to.

P.S.S. Oh, and the B.S. about giving a positive review on here gives you a free month of DTA. If this malarkey is true (which its obviously not), then donate it to a someone that's as hungry as I am and just starting out. I'll make that much on my first trade on Monday because I'm doing the WORK!!!

Fake Traders Selling The Dream
Sham. Maybe he makes a few hundred bucks here and there, He's gotten so bad he's posing a $60K trading account with stocks now. And from where? SCOTTRADE! You know who uses Scottrade? Nobody. At all. Run far from this kid. Better yet. Ask him how many hedged funds or prop desks hes traded for. None.

Just Upgraded to Lifetime Membership!
I joined The Day Trading Academy February 2015. It is more than what is promised to be. The curriculum is great preparation to the Live Classes. The Live Classes are not only truly insightful, but EFFECTIVE as well! That is why I just upgraded to the Lifetime membership. I plan to trade with this family of profitable traders for the long haul!

Intensive. Hard work. But I am seeing progress
I had been a student of The Day Trading Academy for 16 months but I had not been consistent with my learning and sim trading.

I decided to take a plunge with Military Training and I did not regret my decision. Manny, one of the Professional Trader who is a Senior Instructor of the company had flown down to Medellin, Colombia to have a week of intense coaching to take my trading to the next level. We went through a simple and manageable process to trade to prepare me to go live. It was intensive, but I can feel myself getting new insights and making progress with my trading.

Will return with an update after an extended period of going live.

Great live trading seminar in Columbia
I have been to this live trading seminar at Colombia, organized by the guys from the Day Trading Academy. The seminar took place from the 12th of April to the 18th of April and I found it an extremely useful experience! I got to know personally Marcello and Nikolai from the company and found them to be very genuine, transparent, and helpful.

Six days of real-time trading, experienced traders that knew exactly what they are talking about. As the market was moving live they would help everyone place their orders and explain where they should take the trades from and why. Many of us had problems with emotions and the psychology of trading and they were able to assist with that as well.

The guys with DTA taught me and the other participants to omit some major mistakes that most traders often do. There was an educational part, a practical part with one of the participants sitting on "the hot seat" and trading, while one of the traders was supervising his every move and giving him insights about how to handle trading in a most efficient way. Most important of all, we learned more than just the psychology component of trading that you read in books that only very experienced traders such as the tutors can tell you about.

After the seminar I felt that my understanding of the day-trading market has increased vastly!

Great for Beginners or Advanced Traders
The site is very inspiring and personally visiting their trading center in Medellin has been an eye opening experience. To see these traders like Nikolai and Marcello training people live and see their thought process was something I have never seen before. I was originally inspired by Marcello through his WanderingTrader site and I wanted to obtain my freedom.

The process is absolutely phenomenal as they take you not knowing anything about the market or futures (in my case) and teaching the process of how to become consistently profitable. I had the pleasure of sitting one on one with Nikolai and Marcello as they trade and see their decisions no matter what the market is doing.

The curriculum is thought out very well and is very easy to understand. Especially someone like me from Colombia where English is not my first language. It is great to know that when learning the system that they teach that we are paying attention to price action and not to indicators or software. This is big as in Colombia and other companies online want to charge a lot of money for extra things once you sign up. With Marcello everything is included when you first sign up which is great. They show you how to trade for free until ready to go live.

The classes taught by Zeke and even Jonathan are excellent. I love how personalized the program is depending on skill level and knowledge of the market. Everyday they send out a recap of the market no matter if it is a losing or winning day which is great. Many companies I have tried in the past only show the positive days but not the losing days. I like how the curriculum is also setup for beginners and also advanced traders. I look forward to continue to learn and become a Master Trader & DTA Angel with them,

If you are able to I would really recommend to visit one of their day trading centers ( I am in Colombia one). It is an amazing environment where you see all of the traders together helping one another no matter if they are profitable or not.

Honest Day Trading Education
Before I made the investment to join DTA I was apprehensive. I worked at a commodities firm in options and futures trading for four years, but was never able to develop a methodology to consistently profit from intraday trading.

Possibly similar to you, I read all the reviews here on Investimonials, and talked to as many people as I could find with experience in the program. I finally reached a point where I felt that I trusted the company enough to make the investment in myself and joined DTA.

In order to take full advantage of the training, I moved from the US to Medellin, Colombia to work in the training center along with the Colombian traders. Now about 2 months into the program, I can confidently say that my intuition was correct and I made the right choice.

Mind you, profitably day trading consistently is not simple by any means. The process has been challenging and frustrating at times. Forget any disillusion about quick mastery of the subject with subsequent endless financial rewards. The pro traders in DTA who have become consistently profitable have put in massive amounts of time and effort into developing that skill.

However, that is the good part in my opinion. If you are sincerely dedicated to this profession, you will be able to learn from those experienced few who have made that leap. In the end, it will absolutely come down to your own effort into the program by taking advantage of the resources available in DTA.

This last week, one of the master traders came to the training center in Medellin to personally train another student for one week. The energy in the office was exceptional, as everyone (from the professional traders to the apprentice traders) were comparing ideas on trade management, while also understanding new trading perspectives. Overall it was an excellent week together.

For anyone reading this and considering the program, I would honestly say you first must question your motivation into this career.

If your priorities are aligned and you are willing to seriously commit to developing this skill of trading, then the team at DTA will enable you to achieve your future goals. Similarly, if you are not able to make the time and energy sacrifice necessary, then I would recommend you save your resources for other investments.

Best of luck in your trading career. Cheers.

Great week of intense training
I joined DTA in October 2014 and recently spent a week in Medellin Colombia (March 2015) training 1-on-1 with the master trainer Nikolai. It was an excellent experience. DTA trains traders! They do not sell you an indicator or software. They teach you how to read price action, analyze the market, minimize risk and maximize profits and most importantly, how to control your emotions while trading. Trading is one of the hardest journeys someone can undertake. DTA will help you achieve your goals if you are disciplined, a hard worker and teachable. I fully recommend DTA to anyone who wants to learn how to trade profitably.

Note: I sat with Nikolai for over 60 hours and I can honestly say he is one of the most smart, introspective, and modest persons I have ever met. He and Marcello are real class acts that really care that you become successful.

intriguing
I have loved traveling all my life and have traveled extensively to many countries. The problem I keep bumping into is running out of money. I have always wanted to find a way to make money where ever I am, instead of coming back home to save for the next trip. A couple of months ago fooling around on youtube I came across a site called The Wandering Trader. The name in it self got my attention. The wandering trader; Marcello introduced me to the idea of day trading. From there I went to his website The Day Trading Academy, where I was invited to participate in a live trading webinar, which I found very intriguing. After that I watched just about all of the videos on both youtube sites. About a month ago I joined The Day Trading Academy. I had no prior experience in trading. They teach what they call momentum trading, I equate it to trying to catch a wave. You don't want to jump in to early or to late. You have to get a feel for it and it;s takes time. They set you up so you can simulate trading their approach and its great because you can learn without putting any money on the line. I'm starting to get the hang of it Two days a week they have real time classes trading the S & P e-mimi that you follow along with the instructor. So far I couldn't be more satisfied, everyone has been very helpful and constantly asking for questions, which they promptly answer. I think I can make money day trading but time will tell. All the best
