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

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.
