The Best Trading Training Available
Grok Trade Mentoring is by far the best experience I have ever had in any formal training of any kind.

The instructors, Mark and Des, each have their own unique style of teaching but have a balance that is projected throughout the training. Mark is very good at what he does (as he does most of the training) and makes taking all the material in a little easier as well as amusing at times. The instruction was well organized and flowed smoothly but was a little overwhelming at times, at least for me as a newbie. I am impressed with the whole program, beginning with the free videos right through to the mentoring program.

I am a beginner trader with little experience in (dare I say) penny stocks so the benefit I had in attending the live class was an open mind to all they had to teach. I am basically starting with a new slate and the information I received is second to none. From what I see, with the training I received and as long as I utilize and implement what I've learned, as well as following set rules, I can't lose.

I understand now that education is by far the most important aspect of trading and Grok Trade is the place to get it... period.

I will continue the Grok Trade Mentoring program for as long as I need it and then some. If you're ready to be educated in trading, then this is the place to be.

Grok Trade can help you
For three intensive days, I took this mentorship 3-day immersion training. It was a good experience for me. My mentor was Mark. He is a really good teacher, and I learned a huge amount of things during the three days.



I really came into how to protect my capital, so that I can continue trading, and do trading without being overly nervous. I learned a lot of what to look for to understand market sentiment. I learned a lot of how to enter and exit a trade, and how to scan the market for good setups.



I leaned about fundamental and technical analysis and how psychology affects my trading. I was introduced to doing a trade log, and was given one for my own use. This journal will help me to become more successful.



Now that I have been to mentoring it is only up to me to become successful, now I have the tools to do it.



After you have graduated, you still have a mentor for life at Grok Trade. Once you are a student you are a student for life. This is great!



This level of training is not about becoming rich fast, it is about staying in the game, and with small, but effective steps, go for the goal to become a profitable trader.



I am from Denmark and English is my second language. The training was in English and I followed along without any problems. I was never left behind.

At the core is a strategy that will not work ...
I completed the Grok Trade 301 Mentoring and at it's core is a breakout strategy based on chart patterns like cup and handles, head and shoulders, ascending/descending wedges, etc. In an age of HFTs and the proliferation of these chart patterns it was no wonder most setups failed. Using these chart patterns is not the path to consistent and profitable trading especially if you trade futures or forex.

The Mentoring program is expensive compared to other providers and the information you get is outdated. You're better off finding cheaper mentoring programs or researching chart patterns on various websites at no charge. The most interesting part of the Grok Trade Mentoring is their analysis of market internals to "predict" market direction. But again, with a little research you'll figure out the meaning of VIX, ADD, etc and it's relation to price. So don't spend money accessing information that is already in the public domain!

Overall, the Mentoring program was disappointing and I would not recommend it.

Thorough and enjoyable. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
lt is true that you need discipline to achieve success in trading, but I also think that learning to trade successfully can also help me become more disciplined in other more important aspects of life. The 3-day Grok mentoring session gives you everything you need to help you along the way, but what makes this experience unique is the support you get from mentorship.

There was never an attempt to sell any more material at the end of the session because there was nothing held back from us. The mentorship is for life.

All you need to learn to trade
I got started in day and swing trading learning a bit here and there on the internet and reading books. In the past I did a bit of long term trading, using a buy and hold approach because I didn't know anything else.

I had always been interested in day trading in particular and so I decided to try paper trading for a couple of weeks, after that I started using real money. I only lasted about 3 weeks using real money until I realized I needed some serious help. It was a very emotional three weeks(to say the least) that I hope anyone reading this will not have to endure. However, my losses were relatively small compared to some other stories I've heard.

The thing is, it took me having to go through those three weeks to realize I needed an education and some guidance. So if anyone new to trading is reading this then I would like you to know that getting some instruction is very important and will save you money and a big headache.

So once I realized that I needed an education the question became, what type, with who and how? The best type of education I can think of would be if you knew a professional(and successful) trader who is willing to sit with you every day and critique you as you trade. Basically one on one, face to face mentoring. Chances are that is not possible so the second option for me was training through the internet.

So if you are with me so far you agree that you need an education and you think getting it on the internet is the most applicable option and so the question becomes which service do you use, and this is where my recommendation comes in.

I believe that Grok Trade Mentoring will help anyone who wants to learn day, swing or position trading. It's a 3 day course full of great material and afterward life long mentoring through e-mail where they actually critique your trading plan(you have to write one based on what you learned in the course) and have regular group meetings, also they supply you with a trade log spreadsheet which you can regularly send in and they will critique that for you to make sure your on the right track. The fact that they have ongoing training showed me that they really want their students to learn how to trade properly. And in my opinion, it is just as important as the 3 day mentoring itself if not more so.

Also, if you want specifically day trading, I recommend doing the Mentoring first and then afterward joining the Grok Star chat room. Don't do the chat room using real money before you do the mentoring(like me =)

So all in all I recommend this service without reservation to anyone wanting to learn day, swing or position trading.

Hindsight review...
I wanted to take the time to re-review this product and to help save other people from wasting their money...After some significant time spent learning to trade I have to say that these people are charging way too much for this course...Most of the information in this course can be found on the internet for free or you could buy a book on trading for less than $100 and learn just as much...If you take part in one of their webinars you will hear a lot about how Des is a great teacher....He may very well be, but he does not take part in the teaching process...I truly don't know how they can charge people $3500-$4000 for a course of such little value...I say all this now because I have been trading for some time now and I know that it is a difficult challenge to learn to trade...I just recommend that you do not fall for the "You need a trading education" line...Really what you need to do is learn to read the markets and I honestly think you would be better off paper trading alone for 6 months to a year with no teacher, than to waste your money on this course...I think that most of these online courses are just taking advantage of the naive newbie that can be persuaded with a bit of trading jargon...I don't doubt that these people are profitable...I just doubt that it is through their trading =)

Mentoring is a must for success
I had been trading on and off for more than 15 years. Made a bunch of money during the 1999-2000 stock market “irrational exuberance” gold rush, but since then I have been very successful in giving it all back.

Over the years I had been trading with the “think” philosophy, without applying any real analysis to my trades. By chance I came across Des (freetradingvideos) 3-4 years back and started following his daily videos. Last year, I decided I would give trading a serious try, but given my (mis)-adventures over the years I made a promise to myself that I would not trade till I was comfortable with an established method of trading and given that I had been following Des’s perceptive videos, I made a decision to go through with Grok Trades mentoring program.

The mentoring was conducted over a 3 day period. What I had realized earlier and which was reinforced in the mentoring is that one can learn and follow any number of strategies but your mental mindset has to change and one needs to be focused. To me that was the biggest mind shift that was and is required and which is very well covered in the first half of day one of mentoring and continually reinforced over the remaining days. Also, the flow of the information was well thought out with a number of real life examples.

Des, Scott and Mark did an excellent job in covering the content which included a wide range of topics that cover Technical and Market Analysis and most importantly Psychological analysis. Chart patterns, trends, price action, various market internals etc were all discussed at length. Also, Mark does an excellent job in sharing his day trading system which is what I have been following since I started trading again. His callouts are amazing and I am still continually learning from him on how to trade successfully.

I still have ways to go before I can claim to be a successful (consistent) trader, but the mentoring has brought about a change in my mindset. I have started protecting my capital and have started exiting trades without much emotion, whether it is for a profit or for a loss. The biggest change is that I am not afraid to take a loss and am willing to “live” with the profit I make.

I am a firm believer that for most of us mentoring is a must, whether it is Grok Trade or any other mentor, but having been through Grok’s mentoring program, I highly recommend their system, and am convinced that it is time and money well spent.

The best value with integrity!
The training I've got truly exceeded my expectations. The Grok Trade mentors have genuine interests in helping their students develop their skill to become independent traders. These mentors worked very hard to become successful traders so we don't have to re-invent the wheels. What sets them apart from other trading education firms is their integrity and sincere desire to help other traders succeed. The Grok students are great and offer each other support. This is the best place to learn to trade and I will highly recommend it. I am very grateful to be a Grok trader!

This is a must do Life Changing Mentorship - "STOP LOSING"
This is an excellent education opportunity. Once you complete the mentorship, you will believe in one thing - "Capital Preservation is important than Profits". I learned lots of new basic techniques and steps of trading. I personally had lost about 10k prior to meeting Des and undertaking his mentorship program. After the 2 day immersion mentorship by Des, I had quiet a success in trading. I did not have a major loss during the major crash in 2008 due to this mentorship. I made excellent profit in 2009. In 2010 due to personal situation I did not trade much but 2011 was good to me. Currently, 2012 has been profitable also. (did not trade Jan. to April).

Powerful and eye opening
The Mentoring program from Grok Trade is very straight forward and easy to follow. There are great people there ! Their goals are your successes, not your wallet. The program gives you all the tools and support you need to get on track, and learn how to build a strong future.

If you have the Discipline ...... take the classes and listen , follow the road map and believe in what you are taught . Lastly, believe in yourself Grok Trade will guide you along your journey.

These guys are the Real Deal!
In the world of professional traders, even the most experienced and successful will tell you that education is the single most important thing you can do for yourself. The traders who consistently take money off the table never stop learning.

As a novice, I began my first classes with GROK in 2007, and they have continually gone above and beyond my greatest expectations. It’s incredibility rare to find a group that really cares about developing your skills, and just isn’t in it for the money.

If you have never traded before, or are a seasoned professional, GROK can provide what you need to begin and continue success. I can honestly say you won’t be disappointed, and encourage you to check them out!

HAPPY TRADING!
