DayTradingZones

DayTradingZones Probability Tools can be used for both intra-day and position trading high volume Emini, Futures, Stocks, ETF’s and Forex markets.

As a 17 year trading veteran, Marc Nicolas’s DayTradingZones Probability Tools were born out of simplifying his own trading, grouping everything into one chart per symbol for faster, easier decisions answering the key fundamental questions of where are high probability entries, target and stoploss levels for high reward to risk ratio trades.

DayTradingZones Probability Tools assist the active trader in answering these questions through simple to use tools directly on your charts by determining trend direction, likely continuation or reversal and critical areas of market support and resistance to identify explosive market moves. Once a move is identified, the trader can use the Tools to identify where to enter and position their stop loss and profit targets according to the Tool's price points for a complete trading strategy.

The DayTradingZones Probability Tools are available with two Training Packages.

Also available at DayTradingZones.com is Marc’s FREE "Revelations of a 17 Year Trading Veteran Trader" 30 page pdf and Advanced Trading Video Series.

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.

Mastery Programm - Great value for the price
I have been on many free webinars advertising wonderful trading courses or amazing indicators for several thousand dollars and I have never bought any of them. Most of them were power point presentations with lots of theoretical stuff or indicators which seemed to have worked well when looking at historical charts. With DayTradingZones it is different. Marc and Jack don't just show you theoretical stuff. They show you real results all the time and in their Mastery program they also show how their processes and propitiatory indicators can be applied during live trading. I have bought their Mastery Program course and in about 8 weeks going through some of their videos and materials in order to prepare myself for the boot camp, which has not even started yet, I have made about four times the money I have spend on the course. Surely there was also some luck involved and the fact that I was not a complete newbie to options trading has helped. So I am not saying that this will happen to everyone. But what I can say is that their stuff really works and that you get great value for the price. The accuracy of the indicators amazes me. These guys are genuine, they are really willing to share what made them such successful traders. Already now I have learned a lot and I am still only at the beginning of the program. I can only recommend this to others. If you have to decide between several offered courses ask yourself this: Who is showing you their real trading account and real results? If their courses are so great as they claim, why can they not show the results to prove it? Who is genuine and does not just put on a show?

One small criticism: In the videos I have seen Marc's keeps using bad language like sh...., etc. a bit too much for my taste.

The Investment That Never Stops Paying Returns....
Being mentored by Marc has helped me better manage my risk by changing my allocations per trade, for my credit spreads, iron condors and directional, using reliable support and resistance, which I haven’t been able to replicate, so I’ve given up trying and decided, hey if its working great, get on with using it instead of questioning it!

Most importantly Marc trades real money and passes on years of priceless experience, which has saved me a whole load of staring at screens and ploughing through books and destroying accounts!

His direct feedback can be tough to swallow, but that’s what I am paying him for, the guts to tell me what I need to hear, good and bad to improve my trading.

Basically his mentoring has turned me into a well round trader and I very happy to be part of the daytradingzones community!

My professional perspective
As a professional who has traded their own as well as their clients' money for over 19 years, I can say without reservation that DayTradingZones is worth every penny. As background, I have personally worked for several of the largest banks on Wall Street including Merrill Lynch, UBS, Morgan Stanley, Bear Stearns and Deutsche Bank.

Even when I was at those firms, options were a specialty of a very select few, with professionals like myself having to supplement our own skills by seeking education outside the firm. I have personally spent $$$$ on several educators beginning with Optionetics in the 90s, Shaeffer's and several more. I have found very few worth the money and DayTradingZones is one of them.

If you are looking for a trade service or to be spoon fed ideas, this is not what DayTradingZones does. What Marc and Jack at DTZ do is break down in extreme detail the process by which an investor can simply, systematically and consistently train themselves over time to learn how to successfully read market action, context, trade setups, executions, money management and psychology. This is not a shortcut education. This is a real life, real money guide on how to consistently grow your own account with a systematic, replicable plan.

DTZ covers everything from proper strike selection, days to expiration, stop loss management, runner philosophy, asset allocation etc. The amount of training materials is impressive. The style of instruction is direct, yet brutally honest. As they say there is nothing more honest than the instructor showing you his trades with his real money and in real time. There is no simulation here, just real money and real trades, no back testing.

Marc is passionate about what he does and it shows. There is a personality to the instruction but that just adds to the color of the experience. I wish DayTradingZones existed when I started in the 90s but I can honestly say that these techniques that I have learned, I use every day in my own accounts.

The added benefit is that you are invited to join a private facebook group that allows everyone who has attended training to share ideas and resources real time. The sense of community helps to keep one abreast of important market action, developments, etc. There is no added pressure to buy another course or the next seminar like some other educators (check around and you will see what I mean).

Commit to this training and it will be well worth the time and effort. Follow the process and you will not be disappointed.
