Real Deal Finally
This review is my own experience with DTZ...I have been pro trader for 12 years work sell and buy side at BNP parisbas - HSBC and Societe Generale trading stocks but fairly new to options less than 2 years trading them for my own account.

I have been part of the last mastery group joined in April recommended by a friend and did the June bootcamp...The DTZ team and Marc are real traders trading real money you learn from someone who has been in the trenches for many years and real experience. This alone is invaluable you learn systematic approach to trading value zones and references points by overlaying the high probability options strategies.

I have lost about 48,000 euros trading options on my personal account and needed a step by step process to make regular income.

Although is only 3months of trading the DTZ process i have been consistent every week...yes every week and almost paid for my class already by trading very small sizes to gain confidence. Do i get some individual losers absolutely.

The point is understanding the reference points and trading the right option strategy and be surrounded with almost 300 traders doing the same process in the live room 3 times per week reinforce the execution. I learn from each trade Marc or the others dtz contributors put...I have over double a trade Marc took July 9th at the lows showed publicly in the weekly action video a debit spread 545/547.5 call which he back ratio by one and showed how to defend losing credit spreads, Iron condors and IC butterflies or boost profit by changing unbalancing legs...I have been learning so much and most importantly executed each trades very systematically with high probability of success vs gambling.

I have been doing this for a long time and this is the real deal and NO BS from other gurus i have invested in and found out to be a total waste....if you are patient and listen and apply and dissect each trades Marc or the others make you will become a better more consistent traders....Marc personality is rough when he teaches because he does it as a second nature to him and is very passionate and really cares for traders to succeed i think people miss that point.

I met him this week in Paris France with other DTZ european traders in a meet up they did this week the guy is humble simple and not pretentious as others wrote he is already wealthy and just is a normal self made guy....for any serious traders consider seriously this opportunity to change the way you trade....

Good Luck everyone

Good Trader. Terrible Teacher.
I recently signed up for the Mastery and just finished the first week of bootcamp today. My thoughts so far:

Cons: As a teacher, Marc needs a big dose of humility and patience. He's rude and often berates his students for asking questions. For example, in today's session, someone asked a very valid question regarding his tools. Marc belittled him, saying he was "slowing down the class" and threatened to boot him out for asking such a basic question. Are you kidding me? We all paid a lot of money for this Mastery for a reason -- because we want to learn. Yet Marc expects everyone to suddenly be experts within a week. His terrible attitude has everyone afraid of asking questions, for fear of being humiliated. I find this totally appalling as a teacher. How are students supposed to learn if they're afraid to speak up when they're confused?

The course itself is not organized. One must watch hours upon hours of old Mastery webinars, where Marc rambles a lot, just to get maybe 20 mins worth of good learning material. It would be better if Marc actually recorded stand alone videos, where he just purely teaches, using a power point as a guideline (like most courses do).

Pros: Marc IS an excellent trader and knows his stuff. If he would just work on his attitude and be able to clearly convey his knowledge, this Mastery would no doubt be the best around.

Another positive note is Kevin, Marc's assistant teacher. Kevin is the exact opposite -- he's humble, patient and sincere. You can tell he really cares about the students. Now if only Marc would let Kevin teach more.

Overall, if you can stomach Marc's rudeness (I doubt my review is going to make him change his attitude), this course might be for you. But for me personally, I found it very frustrating to learn from a teacher who's so impatient.

More advanced option trading education
I am delighted to have found DayTrading Zones with Marc Nicholas. I have spent the last few years learning to trade on my own, exploring different systems and finally concentrating on options. I had a few substantial successes with options following by substantial losses ending up with an expensive leaning curve. I had managed to learn the basics of option trading without translating that into financial success when I stumbled upon Marc Nicholas's options workshop offer. I had watched a number of his free videos and the concepts made sense to me. I doubt I would have understood them had I not already learned the basics of options trading. I joined the options workshop and started watching every video that came with that membership. This was many, many hours of instruction. Over time the repetition was helpful in my trading. I then joined the mastery program and many many more hours of videos and live training later I am now profitable with a 62% return on investment in a month.

Watching Marc trade live has made all the difference. I have heard that one needs to "let the trade come to you". Watching Marc actually do this made me understand that I was not doing this although I had not been aware of that before. I now feel much more confident that I know how to put on a trade and even more importantly how to manage that trade once I put it on. Marc does explain what trades he is watching and why he puts certain trades on. The whole process seems inefficient at times but the subtleties of trading start to be revealed over time.

If what you are looking for is someone to suggest trades with little work on your part this is not for you. There are plenty of services out there that purport to do that, and good luck with that. I would advise anyone that is seriously interested in becoming a successful option trader to first learn the basics with all the variety of free information out there and then become a member of DayTradingZones. If you do not have a grasp of the basics I think the course would be very confusing and discouraging. Specifically you need to understand what are calls, puts, credit spreads, debit spreads, and have some familiarity with the greeks. Once you have that knowledge and start trading either one contract or paper money for a few months, you can benefit from Marc's knowledge. There are some people in the group who had little basic training prior to the course and seem to do well but I am sure they had to spend a lot of time doing remedial work.

Marc has his own Pro Tool that helps determine support and resistance in different time frames. This is helpful on its own. Watching Marc trade live using the tools makes it much easier to better utilize the tool. I had tried my own version of support and resistance for putting on credit spreads before I joined DayTradingZones with only marginal success. My short strike kept being threatened and in the end I was just breaking even. Once I learned from Marc where to put on the trades initially and how to defend (and when to defend) my threatened strikes I started making profits.

Marc is emphatic that we need to keep good records with an entry and exit spreadsheet. I had heard this recommended haphazardly before but with Marc's insistence I started recording every trade within 8 hours of placing the trade. This has been extremely helpful. What I at first did to have a record for Marc to review has now become a necessity for me to review to learn from my own trades. He is also insistent about the need for overall portfolio management. None of these concepts were brand new to me. I had heard most of this advice before but the way that Marc puts it together as a package with constant repetition has made all the difference for me and my trading. I firmly believe that each individual needs to find their own personal style of trading. I am in the process of doing that and Marc has given me the tools and insights to do it profitably.

A trading education and plan that really works
I began with DayTradingZones more than 2 years ago after investing countless hours and dollars on books, seminars, webinars, videos/DVDs, trading recommendations, etc. The result had been a lot of losses and still no workable plan to grow my retirement nestegg. Like many, I guess I was looking for the "magic" indicator or formula that would make lots of money. I have come to realize that what works is a mentor who has lots of experience, a proven trading system/process that works, and a lot of hard work and practice. I will admit that I didn't embrace Marc Nicholas' system as quickly as I should have, but on the other hand his training and resources have increased and improvved exponentially over the past two years. I now understand the processes, see the opportunities, and learn daily from his commentary, extensive videos, Chart Blast, and from the other traders in his Facebook group. Marc's emphasis on controlling risk and balancing an account would have saved me six figures had I found and embraced it sooner. If you want a quick path to riches, DTZ isn't for you. Nor is trading stocks, options and futures. But if you are willing to invest the time and effort, and keep an open mind, Marc is a dedicated teacher and experienced investor who trades REAL MONEY every day and has a track record to show that his advice will help you.

Bad Reviews Get Deleted
My previous review and comments were deleted by Investimonials. So much for a transparent site that is the 'Trip Advisor of the financial world'.

FACT: Marc has over 200 people in his mentorship that all paid $3000. Do the math. He makes more money selling you his recorded material that is sorely out of date and his "proprietary" indicators that really aren't that special. He has a reason to get any negative reviews deleted off this site.

If you have his "pro tools", pay careful attention to his secret weapon, the volume indicator. Compare it to the advance decline line. Hmmmmm. Proprietary?? What a joke. Oh, he banned a student from his group because he figured it out too. Don't fall for the BS.

Marc has zero credibility. He lies. He is rude. He is a horrible teacher and even his trading skills are suspect, at this point. Anyone that pays close attention to his webinar will realize what is happening.

The fact he would go through such lengths to get a review deleted is all the proof you need. Do not give him your money. You will regret it.

Stock and Options education with software to find your way
This is an intensive option education experience consisting of a 2 week, 4 hour per day boot camp, and then weekly 4 hour classes with live trading for a year. If you are not a profitable options trader, but want to be one, I do recommend this program. It will cut years and years off your learning curve, and save you so much grief and lost capital.

Options trading is a detailed business, and needs to be treated as such. Marc Nicolas has been in that business successfully for over 20 years, and will teach you what to trade, how to trade, when to trade, what size to trade, how to keep risk in check, along with countless tips it would take decades to learn on your own.

Included with the program is DayTradingZone's software that helps identify levels of higher probability trades. With practice, this becomes your trading map, helping you develop a sense of where the stock price is going. It runs on eSignal (among other platforms), so eSignals's other indicators are available also. Another feature that benefits me is the Facebook page where members trade ideas and opinions, as well as help each other out.

By far, this is the most useful program I know of to learn the business, but you need to be committed to it for the year.

Trade live with real $ side by side with a pro!
Marc is by far the best instructor I've had the opportunity to learn from. I've worked for major firms such as Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan, and can without a doubt say that Marc is extremely knowledgeable, passionate and genuine with how he approaches trading and his students. I have yet to come across another instructor who is willing to spend 2 full weeks trading LIVE and with REAL MONEY, with over 200 students, and then continue to do so for 1yr thereafter. Marc isn't your avg "guru" who spits out trades and doesn't tell you why or show you their own personal account. He is here to teach & mentor you over a 12 month timeframe so that you can witness and experience along side with him the reality of the markets and how he handles winning and losing trades. He is 100% transparent, and does not hold back from the truth.

Marc goes above and beyond for his students by having excel spread sheets where we document each trade we make for him to review live with all students. He has also created a private FB community page where traders from around the world can share ideas and trades for others to review and give feedback, as well as have live charts review session once a week and a mid week video lesson of what the markets have done and what we can expect.

If you want to really learn this business and have a genuine professional coach you and guide you to properly allocate your hard earned money in order to create a consistent and replicable trading business then Marc is your guy! I have read the other reviews, and I can see the frustration others may have experienced. However, it's not because of how Marc teaches or what he offers. The reality is that, being a day trader and/or options trader to be more specific, takes an extreme amount of discipline, hard work and mental toughness. This business is NOT easy and anyone who tells you it is, just wants your money because most likely they lost theirs trading!

I hope this helps anyone who's really looking into learning this amazing and rewarding business, and is understanding that it's YOU who will ultimately make it work.

Thank you Marc, and to all the DTZ team!

DayTradingZones 360 Trading Mastery Program is the Best!
I have been attending DayTradingZones on line sessions for about three years. I began day trading in the 90’s and enjoyed socializing with a large group of traders. As time went on my friends began to pursue other interests and I did not keep up with new trends in day trading. My successful trades slowed to a point where I decided to quit trading. About three years ago I began to renew my interest in trading. Advertising from my TD Ameritrade accounts led me to Think or Swim which spurred me to options. I looked around for opportunities to practice with other option traders. You Tube had many videos to introduce me to Day Trading Zones. Marc’s enthusiasm and willingness to take on the task of outlining a path to successful trading was just what I needed. I really appreciate his dedication to providing an energetic environment with professional guidance.

The program stresses a morning routine of thorough market analysis. A strong foundation is required to master any trading strategy. This is supported by live sessions twice a week all year and daily sessions in 4 two week bootcamps during the year. In addition Marc often adds bonus live sessions during the week when the market presents topics he can emphasize. All sessions are recorded in case you have schedule conflicts. You are strongly encouraged to bring your personal trades and experiences live on the mic to receive the individual attention needed to improve your skills. There is a vast amount of on line materials available to study when you have the time.

The analysis tools are unique in this program. I have developed a strong trust in the tools. Knowing support and resistance for price as well as spotting momentum shifts with arrows, dots and color prompts has given me a trading advantage. The daily recordings offer abundant nuances to market events and uses of the tools. I admit I still lean on the live sessions to place my trades. I have mastered the processes but I just like having human confirmation. Marc has the advantage of more than twenty years of trading. Also, Jack provides prompt support for technical matters.

The private Facebook group rounds out the package. I have friended people from all over the globe. Everyone has something to contribute. Before joining the group a member is required to have attended a training program to have common knowledge with the rest of the group. There are newbies and professionals at every level who are dedicated to improving the trading experience. People can express their frustrations as well as their knowledge. Some people enjoy presenting trades and many learn from these examples. I enjoy chats with members at 2am my time when I can’t sleep but others are up and about during their time zone. This is also a path to interact with members on a personal level.

Each of us brings our personality and messiness to the program. I am grateful for this fantastic opportunity to share my trading journey. I laugh with joy at my retirement plan that includes waking up with a Frenchman guiding my bank deposits every morning! Life just gets better.

Great trader but not a great teacher...
I signed on with high hopes as the free videos made a lot of sense, Marc's instructions r.e. when to enter (cross/recross etc) are trading gold.

However the teaching is extremely chaotic. Videos are all over the place and last for hours. Sit there with a paper and pen to try to glean the relevant bits and you'll be sitting there for hours on end. What is needed, in my opinion, is clear concise instructions that cover all of his trading methods in a clear and structured manner. But it is fragmented all over the place. There are core videos, but then on top of this there are a few minutes in an hour and a half video here, then another few minutes there, so the notes that you take on the pure instruction videos constantly need to be fleshed out/updated/changed.

I can only talk for myself here, but it took repeated views of the same videos to get a rough idea of what Marc was talking about sometimes. I remember seeing a video with Marc (maybe on youtube or on the course itself) and the difference in approach is huge. The American guy was very helpful in phrasing the questions and Marc's answers to make them understandable, and that is what Marc needs IMO. He just cannot communicate his knowledge clearly, and he most certainly has knowledge!

The end result of all this is a lot of confusion which is totally unnecessary. Considering that the sales videos emphasised discipline, organisation and focus then I find it weird that Marc's system is so haphazardly organised (on the course anyway).

For example, his first section is concerned with day trading the SandP (using options or futures). You're told to learn it, relearn it, then learn it again. And then one day on a simple chart analysis video (and not a core instruction video) when I asked something I was told that something that is taught in it is no longer used. Uh, what? The only way you would find that out is to ask the question, get the answer and to find it you would have to sit through hours, and I mean HOURS (20-30+) and be paying attention at just the right moment, in the right 1hr 30mins+video, on the right day, in order to pick up on this nugget of info.

And considering the amount of blather in these long videos it is doubtful that you will be paying attention. They go on, and on, and on at breakneck speed with Marc describing his trades in scattergun style, all very quickly, all showing you how much money he made on them. Then you might get a rare nugget of info for a few minutes and then he's off to the races again, having a rant about something (and it might be one of his stupid pupils asking a stupid question. Yes he really is that rude).

I should make it clear that I do think that Marc is a VERY good trader.

I just do not think that he is a good teacher. His thought process is all over the place and he jumps around quite a bit.

He is also abrasive, impatient and swears a lot.

He has thrown someone out of the room, and off the course, for asking what he thought was a stupid question. To be fair it probably was if you had read through the basics, but as I've said, considering that the 'basics' (whatever they are) are presented in such a scattergun fashion then it seemed completely bonkers. Either way Marc got angry and booted them out. He is not a good teacher, it is as simple as that. I have had my fingers hovering over the keyboard many a time as I've wanted to tell him to get lost (I'm being polite) as he has been so rude to people.

To reiterate I do think that he is an excellent trader. He picks reversal points on the SandP and other stocks that he follows with great accuracy. But the question is whether he will be able to teach that to you in a structured and coherent fashion that you will understand. Clearly my belief is that he is not capable of doing so on a consistent basis.

That is not to say that there are not successful traders on there. There do appear to be some success stories that come on the mic. It's just that they are few and far between IMO. If they have made it then they had the patience of saints and have somehow battled through the muddled structure of the course. I have pages and pages of notes from the course that are a combination of the core videos and then with added extras from charting videos which all together make one hell of a mess.

His options trading strategies (mainly credit/debit spreads) seem to be excellent as he has certainly worked out the maths behind it in order to turn a profit. But as someone has stated the prices that you need to achieve to make a profit change very quickly indeed. Also, structuring a credit spread is not easy using IB. Marc always says to use IB (he does I believe) but resolutely refuses to teach you how to use it. Look up IB reviews, a lot of people find it very confusing as I believe you have to structure your credit spreads yourself. Good luck with that.

One final thing. Cross selling (if that is the correct term). Marc uses bespoke zones in a variety of combinations in order to pick likely reversal zones.

This is based upon various parameters and you will NEVER be told what these are based upon (at a guess I would say Market/volume profile along with maybe something else).

But what this means is that if you ever get good enough to trade this, then you will be stuck/tied in to these 'secret' indicators for the rest of your life. You simply cannot trade this system as Marc teaches it without using these zones.

To me that is a deal breaker as any trading course should NOT do this. It should teach you how to trade with a method, and with indicators, that are not conditional on you being constantly tied to the course provider. What happens to your trading if they decide to stop the program?

So to reiterate I do think that Marc is an extremely talented trader. However his scattergun style where he tends to ramble on about his successful trades at great speed, combined with some dubious interpersonal skills mean that success on this course is a lot harder than it should be.

There is definitely a lot of trading knowledge to be had, it's just about whether you will be able to uncover it.

decent for a real beginner
Bought the mastery program. Definitely taught important points but not really enough to develop any real professional skills. Focuses on credit spreads as 50 percent of your pie but in times of low volatility there is nothing to trade. Does not teach anything regarding options except credit spreads as his knowledge of options is limited to that. So when he sells a options mastery course, it is basically teaching you to sell credit spreads or buy credit spreads which is the simplest form of options, not more than that.

He is essentially a day trader, hence the name DAYTRADING.

In terms of his day trading zones, where he tells u mostly how to trade the spy, with points of support and resistance. Do not expect ANY teaching on how and when to enter and exit, just the same repetition over and over with just saying you have to have a feel for the market. He trades with his students once a week for one hour, the rest of the time is filled with other conversations. you can not learn from one hour a week how to trade. The trades he calls in that hour are usually decent trades but one hour a week when he is busy looking at the screen and trying to trade himself instead of teach is usually detrimental.

This is a decent basic introduction but if you are looking for skills to become a professional this is not the place,

He does not show all his trades, only his winning trades as others have pointed out.

He talks about a facebook room that you have to 'earn' your place. The traders who have been there for a while never bother posting there.
