Straight Shooter!
I have many clients that have used Matt's service for years and love him. He is one of the few realistic and honest guys in the business.

Successful Junkies?
I have the boot camp/trading plan and the KIS DVD. I was also a member of the room for awhile.

I haven't been trading the system for that long, but was wondering if there are "ANY" Junkies out there who have been successful using EJ's system, that actually make consistent money every day/week?

It's very hard to tell if anyone's making money in the room, or on the website boards, so if your out there please let me know. It would be nice if EJ set up a trading dom to show when he is entering a trade. I don't think anyone cares about hypothetical results or skewed backtesting... If someone's paying $100 a month to be part of a room they want to see an actual P/L screen somewhere.

Surprised at all the positive reviews
I’m a little surprised there aren’t more negatives about EJ’s KIS DVD. In the DVD he promotes this style as a way to “Keep it Simple”. He talks about how this method of trading is a great high probability setup that works well in it’s own right. Well, he is right about one thing. It is simple. But I’ve tracked the setups from 9:30 to 11:45 for several months and they are not high probability and the risk reward ratio on them is not good. If you can learn how to filter, which isn’t real easy I might add, I could see where they may be beneficial but that’s not keeping it simple. EJ’s a smart guy and understands the ES a great deal but you can’t take his setups as a standalone. His DVD promotes it as a solid method in it’s own right and filtering will increase your results. That would be great but the numbers over the last several months don’t show that. Trust me, if you took every one of the KIS setups over the last several months, you’re not happy today. Just surprised no one has stated that.

Be careful
By the way, if you took every KIS the last 5 weeks, your results would be: A) 57 trades (33 Winners, 24 losers) for a total of -25 points taking entries at the most aggressive level. It’s important to point out that 10 of the 33 winners had entries that only touched your entry so you weren’t guaranteed a fill. B) 32 trades (8 Winners, 24 losers) for a total of -31 points taking entries at the most conservative level.

Now, this is taking the entries strictly as they come per the KIS DVD with no filtering. Obviously, if you filtered the trades you could have performed better. However, if you’re that good at filtering which trades to take and which ones to avoid, you probably don’t need the KIS setup in the first place.

A trading system that looks good in hindsight.
I follow the plan and attended the trading room for over six months. Here is what I have discovered about the system.

- Simple MA cross setup trading on pullbacks with fibs

- EJ more of a sports broadcaster telling you what happens (like you can't see the screen)

- Never tells what he is doing

-Traders in room some long while others short

- His system always changing first 34/68 cross, then kiss, now JB reloads, JB trails so many types of trades some are developed on the fly. He now uses colors rather than numbers to keep up of the MAs on the screen and what is happening

- Always right, after the trade (of couse he never tells his trades)

- My biggest problem are the stops... Risks to Reward ratio on many trades out of wack

-When he adds something new it always will cost you $$$ no matter how long you have been a member.

-Never seems to be quite.

Now the good:

-Can learn about the es for low cost

-Offers good insight on weekly and daily charts

-If you like hearing play by play and other talk you will love the room

-I believe some people can trade his system if you can pick only those parts you want and learn to manage the risk/reward ratio.

Being a member has help me to understand trading the ES better. I do not believe using his system will ever make me money but I can take those parts that will make me a better trader. Great place to learn the basics and grow. But move on once you have a foundation to work with.

Great Room and Education
First off the moderator "EJ" is a really nice guy. His style is very simple once you catch on. That said, I would like to see EJ call out the trades that he takes or even trade with a SIM dom up on the screen. Another point are his extension trades in his recap videos are entirely subjective (and not explained in the trading plan) you can make ANY swing work with an "extension" the only problem with this is determining that it's an extension while trading LIVE not as a video recap. This kind of manipulates the total ticks in the videos. Plus the video recaps include the afternoon session which is not part of the plan. There may be just a little too much smoke and mirrors for me. That said, it's a great introduction to the ES emini for the price.

The Good and the Bad
I've been a member for over a year. In that time, I have not been successful. My ROI has been -45%. However, I do think it's possible for someone to be successful using the tools provided in the room, but it will take more guidance and work than the room can provide by itself. I have not given up on being able to trade successfully.

I think it's important when doing a review to point out the good and the bad. I'm not a black or white person, so I can't say that I love it or hate it. It's just okay. People that just provide reviews saying it's the best trading room ever are either in the honeymoon stage or have been one of the few that have been successful (congrats).

The Good:

- He is very dedicated to the room.

- He will answer all questions.

- He provides a great intro to trading Emini futures.

- He provides a full trading system with clear entry and exit rules.

- He provides a great pre-market assessment of the current market situation.

- You can be successful with his guidance and a lot of work outside the room.

The Bad:

- He rarely provides insight into what he is trading to the point where he will call out entries that line up with his “trading plan,” but he could be taking a trade against his trading plan (e.g. a more experienced trade).

- His first priority is his own trading. His second priority is educating the room. e.g. He will not provide clear instruction or answer questions when he is following price action closely looking for his own trades.

- He uses some proprietary indicators that he doesn't share.

- His instruction can be confusing because he provides instruction for several different trading styles and skill levels. e.g. he doesn't educate based on a single clear trading style.

- He is very controlling when it comes to communicating with other members. You are not allowed to share contact information with anyone, or you'll be banned from the room. This is especially difficult for me since it really helps to have a trading partner that I can talk through things with.

Salesman
I spent over a 1.5 years with EJ spending over $1000 attending his room. After my 1.5 years with him, I lost 60% of my account. Over this period, I believed in EJ and I believed in myself. After continued losses, I finally asked him why I wasn't making money. He would always say that it just takes time and I would eventually get it. So, I kept paying the monthly fee with faith in his trading room.



One day, I finally realized how he is mostly “successful/right”, and why I couldn't get there. It's because he instructs in a way that ensures he is never wrong. Before the trades occur, he will provide both a bullish and bearish scenario (which isn’t a bad thing because every trader has to be ready for both). However, after the trades are over, he will go back and justify why they did or didn't work. This makes it appear that he was right. When his mechanical system fails and a trade results in a loss, he will tell members they have to be traders, and not to take every trade. But he will stand by his system in the exact same situation when and if the trade works out. That was extremely frustrating to me and caused a lot of self disappointment.



When someone never goes back and says what he did wrong, it does not create a good learning environment. All it does is create a better sales environment for him. Members that aren't making money believe they are doing something wrong or just not getting it. But if they keep paying EJ a monthly fee, maybe they will eventually get it.



As far as his system being successful, I have backtested it along with 2 others that I know. All of three of us were unable to produce positive results after 3 independent tests. As others have pointed out in their reviews, his video results are not truly reflective of his system (mechanical or what’s taught in the room).



It’s also important to point out that over my time with him, he has modified or completely changed his "successful" system at least 3 times. He used to focus on a 34/68 plan, then he focused on a KIS plan, then a pivot or junkie band, and then a combination of all of them. I lost track.

Over this time he has also nearly doubled the price of his room. And now sells a signal tool to make it easier for novice traders to follow his mechanical system. But you’ll have to pay more for that. Just another way to make money for himself.

If you decide to join, just don’t beat yourself up if you never get it as good as EJ does. You’ll never be as good as someone who is trying to sell/justify his trading plan.

One final question for you to think about:

1.If EJ had a trading system that worked so well, why does he work so hard to make money selling it to other people?

Best of luck to you and your trading!

Great Trading Room, Amazing Mentor
I consider myself a beginner still, I have been Day Trading for just a year now. I learned the basics from another system and was having some mild success, but soon I wanted to learn more and eventually tried another system when I stumbled upon Emini Junkie. This was the best decision I ever made in my goal to become a FT day trader. I started looking at his plan in May 2011 and joined the room shortly thereafter. EJ's trading room is great, the coaching, patience, and insight have taken my trading to a much higher level and if that wasnt enough, his mentoring is even better! I have learned more in 4 months with Matt (EJ) then I could have ever imagined. He has helped me put all the tools in place and even better, has taught me how to read or get into the rythym of the ES market. His trading plan is easy to understand and has numerous types of trades for different market conditions/styles. I see new people join the room each month and I am still amazed at the patience and detailed explanations he gives each and every time. Trading is a constant learning experience, having EJ and his trading room will always be part of my own personal trading system.

Clear advice that I haven't had to de-code to use.
This is a fantastic site for beginners as well as advanced traders. EJ answers all questions and is extremely helpful. He gives clear targets for each trade, and his system is reliable. He makes himself accountable by providing a recap video at the end of each trading day.

Take with a grain of salt
I have never used this product. However i find these reviews to be incredibly sketchy, all of them have been made in the past few weeks by new accounts, who reviewed just this product. I would not trust any of these reviews, my guess is whoever operates this website created the accounts.
