Mixed Feelings About This Product
First of all, I have to mention that I am a beginner. I began studying this DVD about two months ago and started trading around the same...

Excellent Product!
Nate lays it out there in a easy to understand on how he trades and the criteria he looks at entering and exiting trades. The product is very thorough and I believe it sets up the foundation on trading successfully, however, it entirely depends on the individual how hard he/she wants to work to achieve the desired results.

Watch It More Than Twice
Get DVD, Paper Trade in Chat, then Trade small before levering up….

Thats how this system works for me. I had a week off because I switched brokers after signing up for the IU chat.

The presentation on the DVD is well tuned; highly professional, without being stuffy. He does not cuss like Sang Lucci; which makes him and his huge gains/losses seem unintelligent, sound uneducated like Fous, pissed off like Tim, or lost in amazement like Kunal, or act like a snooty salesman like Anton; I could go on.... Total zero BS, and he’s a fairly passive marketer. I chose IU because of the social media testimony and pure logical presentation, zero guesswork.

The chat is a perfectly tuned instrument being strict; It's a powerful tool, almost a trader's weapon; it's an alert system, a warning system, and education system, better than any new feed; cause you, Trader530, Derreck or Cam will comment on the relevance, warn of SSR, or whatever the combined experience points out. I'm keeping it forever just because it's so handy. I talk to a guy on a regular basis who has Tim's, and he won't even sign in anymore because of the noise.

I appreciate how Nate and his top traders post the real rule breakers, because I know the rules but break them myself, but the honesty from people I respect as traders is amazing in this subject since so many people lie. Several guys stand out in chat for the past month with reliable alerts and commentary.

I don't know how there are any people in chat without the DVD, they would mostly be lost unless they are PMing the hell out of all the mods.

Only feedback re my trading is that I can't seem to trade the advanced pics from the scans in real life consistently, but I can on paper. Yeah, the parabolics mess me up still. I'm doing well with slower pics from Muddy or Michele, using entries and exits from the DVD. I've only been in chat for a month, so I guess that is expected. But I'm pretty comfortable now at $100 risk reward for points I'm looking for; it pays out, can beat commissions, and has tiny losses.

Valuable information to any trader
I was reluctant to buy the DVD because of the price tag and really didn’t know very much about Nate. Heard it was worth the money and when I saw it on sale with a trial for his chat I decided to buy it. Cheaper than a bad loss and got the opportunity to see what inverstorsunderground is all about. I figured I knew a decent amount about day trading by now (few months in Tim Sykes’ chat and also Superman’s-reviews coming) but I ended up learning a lot watching this DVD. Nate breaks it down very simply at the beginning in case you do not have any previous knowledge or experience trading.

The main thing that opened my eyes first time watching was how to set risk. Before I was choosing how much of a stock to by from its price. I would say I’ll put $2,000 into this stock, its $10/share so I would buy 200 shares and manage the trade from there. Not knowing exactly when to get out if it went against me. After watching the DVD it completely changed my approach and I know how much I’m risking per trade. I now have a good spot to cut it off and keep my losers in control. I know going into a trade I am risking a loss of $50 if I am wrong and nothing more. This also helped me realize it is ok to be wrong and to just move onto the next one because my losing trades don’t hurt as much as before.

Nate also gave me a new pattern to be on the watch for – ABCD setup. I had seen it played out over and over before, but didn’t have a way to explain it or be ready to capitalize on it. This is a great setup with a solid risk vs reward, most importantly the set risk I lacked in my trading previously.

Nate is good about explaining what types of trades to focus on if you’re new. Hint – if he says not for new traders, leave them alone. Prove to yourself you have a good understanding of his other trade setups and can execute them consistently. Only after would I suggest trying the riskier plays like parabolic shorts. On that note I would wait and watch it play out multiple times in chat before using any real money. The plays that are easiest for new traders to catch are ABCD and late day fades.

I liked how Nate goes over his setup in the DAS platform. He shows you exactly what he is looking at and how to set it up on your own computer. I set mine up like his, but to track 2 tickers instead of the 3 he does. I have a smaller screen and 3 looks too small for me. Without Nate going over this, I would not have opened a suretrader account. He recommends them in the chapter he goes over a few brokers, but a walk through on how a successful trader set it up is what gave me the push to give it a try.

Finally this DVD helped out with creating a watchlist and plan for the next day. I struggled to create watchlists before. I had some help from Tim, but he looks for very specific plays. I am trying to be a full-time trader and like to push more buttons. Nate helped identify patterns setting up from the daily charts. I didn’t think about what the wick meant and looked like intraday before he spelled it out. Also what to look for in a gap play – PDT friend because you buy at end of day and can sell at open next day and not using a day trade. I limit my watchlists to stocks under $15 or $20 because I have a small account and can’t afford the bigger stocks. Now I have something specific to watch for with every ticker on my watchlist. I tend to favor the red to green setup because it is easy to identify and seems to give most small cap/micro cap stocks a good pop. Also easy to identify on the daily chart it has a history of doing this.

Thorough and well thought out introduction to trading.
As a beginner I have found the Textbook Trading DVD to be extremely useful. While I'm not making big bucks yet his rules and principles of cutting losses quickly and having a set mental stop have kept me from blowing up my account. As long as I'm still in the game I can progress and becoming a better trader.

Unlike other DVD's I have bought on Profit.ly, you can tell that Nate put tons of work on this DVD and didn't just slap together a power point and do it all in one go. Every chapter is well thought out and thorough with examples.

Overall this DVD was well worth the money and has been extremely valuable to me as a new trader.

The format (Online Streaming only) can be kind of annoying since I can't watch it without internet or on my TV easily but I understand why it has to be that way to prevent illegal copies being shared.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking get into day trading.

What's the real cost to learn to day trade?
I think to give an honest review you need to take your personal situation into consideration... here's mine:

I'm in my late 20's and have a degree in finance and accounting from a large public university. My education there cost a lot of money and I feel like I learned a lot and it's been valuable over the long haul. I currently own and operate my own (not franchise) small business in Texas which has been successful. I blew up a previous trading account in 2008/2009 "trading" $SPNG which I put trading in quotes because I wasn't actually trading even though I made several buys and sells. I was much more of a kool-aid drinker or as I like to call them "buy and cheerlead"ers. This cost me 5-figures but in my opinion was a valuable learning experience.

This brings me to Nate, although it is now several years later. I'd found Nate on twitter and began following him and liked his style from what I saw. After several months of careful observation I contacted Cam with IU and decided to purchase the streaming dvd and a chat membership.

The streaming dvd is largely for beginners but could certainly help veterans hone their skills and limit losses. Nate is very direct and to the point and the chat is similar in its no-nonsense style. I have found great value in both video and chat and here's why:

I wouldn't consider myself a beginner trader. After my account blow up 5 years ago I'd been trading the past 2 years profitably and have been successful despite not being able to commit to trading full time or even sometimes part time. I'd say the main takeaway from the streaming dvd personally was the set-risk idea and not trading the "lull"... which I came to find out was where the majority of my losses stemmed from.

In the chat, you really get to see inside Nate's mind. He often calls out his plan on the main watches prior to the opening bell. To be honest, many times I don't trade Nate's main watches but it's incredibly valuable to me to know where his mindset comes from. I use his philosophy on my trades (most of which are on stocks under $10, and really $5) and have been successful in doing so. I monitor closely around the open and again around 2CST or the last hour of the trading day looking for stocks that might gap up and many times Nate nails those.

Buying the streaming dvd and/or chat alone will not make you successful. You have to be personally committed to your success first. Nate can't push the buttons for you and you should have your OWN plan and be able to know what you want to gain and how it fits into your personal situation. For me, I trade much more concisely now and avoid stubborn trades I used to get into. I have an exit strategy to sell my business within the next 5 years and from there will focus full time on trading while taking a passive role in other businesses. Trading is something you can do and will be around when you're 65+ and you have to have a long-term perspective in order to stick around and not blow up accounts like an idiot like I did. As Nate would say, HAVE A PLAN!

In summary, I would highly recommend this streaming video to any trader, but especially a novice trader as it will save you many dollars in losses trying to learn. If you trade daily and anything you pick up in this video makes/saves you $5 per trade and you're planning to trade until you're old, it will pay itself off exponentially. If you're an expert (or at least think you are) I'd definitely recommend both the dvd and chat because you're already wealthy (so what's a G if you learn something?) and chat because you also get dozens of very successful fellow traders to contact who would be more on your level.

If you have a couple nickels to your name and are looking to get rich quick, I'd recommend you find a job.

I look forward to Nate's future dvd's and wish I could make it to Vegas in October, and I wish you all the best in your future trading endeavors.

My Personal Trading Chart and Psychology Encyclopedia
I met Nate Nichaud. at a conference last year where he launched this DVD. First, let me explain a little about Nate's character. When I attended the conference, I was a very new trader so I had tons of questions. When I approached Nate at the conference for clarification on a topic he'd spoken about, he was very kind and approachable. He listened patiently to my questions and he took the time answer each one. He didn't rush through the answers, and when he was done he asked, "does that help?" And it most certainly did. He genuinely wants to help other traders to become profitable traders. That definitely comes through in his DVD.

Textbook Trading is a resource that can be helpful to anyone (the newbie trader, the intermediate trader, seasoned trader, daytrader or swingtrader). I watched the video from start to finish, and refer back to specific chapters when I need a refresher. It's definitely not a product that you will want to watch only once. As with an encyclopedia, you'll want to refer back to it often.

If you're serious about trading and being successful at it, don't hesitate to purchase this DVD. The content is priceless and you will be a much better trader -- without a doubt!

This cr#p cost how much?
The information contained in Investors Live Textbook DVD is basic, definitely not worth the purchase price and you don't even get a DVD or the ability to download the product.

After reviewing all of the product material carefully and comprehensively I am genuinely confused as to why there are so many positive reviews about this product on this site. Some possible reasons for this could be that many of these reviews have been written by new traders who like the author, bought his product and decided to write something nice about it to support him, or perhaps reviewers received some form of inducement to write such positive reviews. I guess it’s also possible that a significant portion of these positive reviews are bogus and could have a common originator whose purpose is to promote this DVD to increase sales. Or maybe I’m missing something here and I’m the only one who can’t see the emperor’s new clothes, I don’t know which one is correct.

Don’t believe the hype. Any introductory book about stock trading will give you as much information as you get on this DVD for a fraction of the price. Ha – Did I say DVD? For it to be a DVD you have to actually get a DVD with the material on it but you don’t! You don’t even get the right to download the contents for the $997 price tag.

Don’t be fooled by the positive reviews on this site and don’t believe the hype about this being the only education product you’ll ever need. In reality you’ll spend a grand and still be a long way short of knowing what you need to know in order to become a successful trader.

If you want an accurate picture of this education product click on “Lowest Overall Rating First” in the sort menu and read those reviews first.

Nathan Michaud Textbook Trading DVD Review
I wrote this review on my blog beyonddebt.com and have posted it here for all those who need a thorough review.

Car buyers can find a wealth of information in Kelly’s Blue Book. Home buyers can lean on resources like Zillow but what do day traders have? Who cares! Let me tell you what they should have. If you haven’t read this post on when I joined the Tim Syke’s Millionaire Challenge then you won’t know why my opinion might matter to you. You see I get a lot of comments asking my personal opinion about this journey and now with over 50 subscribers to this blog I feel compelled to share a great resource a (new) day trader must have. That resource is the Textbook Trading DVD by Nathan Michaud. Let me tell you it is one of the most comprehensive, detailed and well thought out day trading resources you can have to maximize your profits and minimize your errors, losses and dumb mistakes.

It was shortly after I joined the challenge that I found out that the Textbook Trading DVD was out and when I read all the buzz on Twitter, Profit.ly and Investimonials I knew I had to have it. Plus there was a big sale going on which gets me every time. :)

Anyway, I watched the entire DVD from start to finish two times and then re-watched certain segments over and over again to get a better understanding of the material. Let me make this clear, even after I post this review I will continue to refer to the DVD because there is a world of knowledge stored inside that I am sure I missed. So, with that being said I am ready to give my honest review of the good the bad and the ugly of Nathan Michaud’s Textbook Trading DVD.

Textbook Trading DVD The Good

The DVD is broken up into 3 parts. The DVD, Quizzes and the Interviews. The quiz is fun and helps to jog your memory once you have watched the DVD. The interviews are inspiring and leave you wanting more interviews but the jewels are in the DVD.

There are 8 hours composed of 11 chapters in the Textbook Trading DVD and it appears that they were broken up that way to maximize a day trader’s education. Below is a breakdown of each chapter with a little comment about my thoughts.

Chapter 1 – Purpose & History

You must watch chapter 1. Nate’s history is so important to understand what gives him the right to sell people his education and knowledge. Plus there is a GREAT story of how he lost a HUGE amount of money trying to save himself from a motorcycle parking ticket and tow.

Chapter 2 – Setup and Terminology

There are specific terms that will confuse you if you don’t know what they are. HOD, SSR, R/G, G/R and the list goes on and on and on. Nate breaks them down plus he gives his insight into why he blogs during the slow period of the trading day and how he sets up his computer.

Chapter 3 – Charting & TA

Do you know how to read a stock chart? Do you understand candlesticks? There is important information in them and Nate explains how to read it. If that wasn’t enough he also discusses the importances of former stock runners and the whole and half dollar magnet.

Chapter 4 – ABCD & Long Trades

ABCD is just pure GENUIS. It really helps you to make an educated and prepared decision if you decide to go long on a trade. It also helps you to set an excellent risk to reward trade. What is risk to reward you ask? You see I told you this DVD was good.

Chapter 5 – Red/Green & Long Trades

Sometimes you have to anticipate when a stock is moving after a set up. Going from red to green can be rewarding under the right circumstances. Add in a stock that stabilizes and perks after a weak open and once again you might see some nice profits. Nate breaks that down plus much much more.

Chapter 6 – Shorts and Over Extensions

Sir Issac Newton said, “what goes up must come down”. Nate would probably have revised that theory if Sir Newt was referring to stocks. By the way chapter 6 was my personal favorite.

Chapter 7 – Morning Emotion & Faders

When emotions come into play things can go CRAZY. Nate shares what he looks for in a morning panic which can reap very profitable results. However, there are some traps that newbies fall for but Nate breaks them down so you can watch out for them.

Chapter 8 – OTC Trading

OTC stocks act differently than listed stocks. Although Nate explains he doesn’t trade them as much as he used to he does share the gap plays, bounce plays and the pumpers who sometimes help to make these stocks volatile.

Chapter 9 – Brokers

What broker should I use is the number 1 question I see in Tim Syke’s chatroom. I am pretty sure Nate gets a fair amount of that same question. Luckily not only does Nate break down which brokers to use and why he also has certain deals for new traders.

Chapter 10 – Daily Routine & Goals

We all have a daily routine in life but if you are going to day trade you need to be prepared. Nate breaks his entire day down to a T which might seem unnecessary but, on the contrary, is so needed. Plus trading psychology, defining goals and taking profits are all discussed here.

Chapter 11 – Websites & Homework

Yes there is homework. Trading isn’t easy but mistakes can be avoided and profits can be bigger if you check the right websites and prepare nightly. Oh and the best part about this chapter is Nate does a watch list live. This is a must watch.

Textbook Trading DVD The Bad

Nothing or no one is perfect except my wife in case she is reading this review. Nevertheless, the short of it is, the DVD isn’t perfect. HOWEVER there isn’t too much that can make this DVD better. I mean even the cost without the sale is reasonable if you think about all the time and money you will save in the early days of trading. Ok, I do wish there were one more chapter where I could have watched Nate trade live. Although, now that I think of it maybe that can be for another DVD called Nathan Michaud and his Live Trading DVD. Hint Hint. :)

Textbook Trading DVD The Ugly

There are a bunch of texts and charts that really can’t be categorized as ugly or pretty. Actually chapter 3 has a lot of charts with pretty colors in them but that isn’t important right now. Besides, I just wrote that because I am a huge fan of Clint Eastwood.

Final Thoughts

In case you were wondering I get nothing financially out of writing this review. I am not an affiliate nor am I associated with Nate or his chatroom. I do plan on joining Investors Underground Elite very soon but read my response to being accused of working for Tim Sykes and his affiliates. I tell the truth on this blog. I care about those who stop by and ask questions on this blog. That is why if you are thinking about getting into trading I STRONGLY suggest you purchase Nate’s DVD. It will save you hours upon hours of headaches, mistakes and losses. Let me repeat that. Nathan Michaud Textbook Trading DVD will save you hours upon hours of headaches, mistakes and losses.

Click here to watch a preview of the Textbook Trading DVD and follow Nate here on Twitter to see if any new sales come up.

Disclaimer – These are my personal feelings about the Nathan Michaud Textbook Trading DVD. I am not receiving any compensation nor affiliate income for this review. If you have questions feel free to ask. Thanks.

The Real Deal, No "Get Rich Quick" BS!
This DVD program is so dense with high quality information that you will want to watch it over and over. Nate delivers his trading wisdom so succinctly in a easy to digest step-by-step manner. From someone who has been searching for years to find a serious way to learn this business I can't recommend this product highly enough. If you supplement this DVD with the Investors Underground chat room, elite lessons and webinars success is inevitable! I look forward to putting in the time and mastering Nate's trading approach. Thanks Nate

Very valuable information..
First and foremost I learned quite a bit from this Video.. I always been great at trading/ taking long positions, and executing nice scalps on various IPO's opening days. But this Video greatly improved what I always felt was one of my opportunities and where I thought I needed to improve as a trader and that's taking short positions.

The video breaks down concepts and makes them simple to understand. The video also gives you guidance on what setups to look for, what brokers to use, how to scan for possible shorts, the importance of having a plan on each trade....If it wasn't for this Video I probably be stuck using only Etrade PRO...as we know the borrows stink....I was one of those guys who missed out on shorting $PLUG due to lack of borrows.

When you buy this Video you are learning from someone who is very experienced.

POSITIVES:

Very well organized

Very Informative

Teaches you to be self sufficient

Teaches you how to execute short entries and exits....and possible longs too

How to trade Overextended charts

Teaches you how he comes up with his scans for the next day

How he prepares for the morning and also the night before preparation

Gives you info on other proficient brokers and discounts.

How to take advantage of twitter

Risk reward management

What to look for on the candle charts

and much much more....



My only NEGATIVE:

Maybe I'm mistaken....but its not actually a physical DVD or maybe because I bought it at a discount I was only given the stream option through Profitly....Lets be quite frank Profitly isn't perfect and it can be annoying trying to rewind to actual points in the video due to the long nature of the video and its length in informative information. It's not a knock on the video the information is great I would still purchase it even if I knew upfront it was just a video stream...But I would prefer an actual physical DVD....I travel quite a bit and watching this at the airport on the laptop is a no go most times due to bad internet connection.....Still very much worth the purchase I would still recommend this to most traders.
