Velez is a great speaker. That's about it
I've attended an Oliver Velez talk (on Core Trading) before and was impressed by how well he conveys his ideas, how well they are thought out, and to some extent Pristine's technical methodologies (different tools for different trading timeframes) are not just the same-old, same-old. Velez is all about the charts, so you'll hear nothing about fundamentals like P/E multiple. I'm not disappointed with the Swing trade secret Oliver unveils in this roughly hour-long video of a talk he gave at the NY Marriott, and he crystallizes the market psychology this trading strategy targets very effectively with the greater-fool scenario of how prices are reached in the market.
But the reviews that criticize the production quality of this video series are on target, and in this particular video's case it is compounded by overhead projector transparencies (anyone remember those, from the 80's?) Yes, every slide is a hard-to-read-on-video projector transparency.
You don't really need to read that much, besides rising or falling chart patterns, but you'll find yourself taking notes on what he says about his trade criteria because you can't read the print on the transparencies.
About two-thirds of the video are basic material, such as understanding how a candle is depicted. If you have any technical trading experience whatsoever, you'll find the video could easily be cut down to 15 minutes or so (and even if you are a complete beginner, the graphics covering this material is probably better anyplace else but here).
Now, these ideas sell for $3500 when you learn intensively in training Velez's firm offers. A one hour glimpse into them sells for $99 on this DVD. So what you're willing to pay for THIS IDEA which may revolutionize your trading results, will vary from person to person I'm sure. I admit I got this from the "bargain bin" (firesale, actually) so I think I found a good deal, but if you must pay an inflated price you have a greater risk of buyer's regret.
If you ever get a chance to attend an Oliver Velez talk at a trading expo, I recommend him.
