Highly enjoyable
Yesterday I attended an OpenTrader webinar for over 3 hours. The educational quality and value of this presentation was exceptionally high, making the event highly enjoyable which is quite unique in the trading universe. The general idea of the early trading of (true) resistance and support levels extracted from price profile was convincingly demonstrated, although there is the sense of bias in the selection of materials shown (the examples are just too good to be true). I did not see any losing trade.

Ziad and Awais make you feel that you're in a live webmeeting, but a number of clues give away that you're not. First, reactions from the audience were too early, not synched to the webcast. Second, when registering, you can choose from 3 starting times over 3 days or so, but by logging in again today I see these dates being automatically proceeded, Let's see if tonight's 'live' demo is any different from the one I already saw. On itself there's nothing wrong with this, but the authors give you a (counting-down) two-hour timewindow at the end for making a decision to enter a lifetime membership for a highly discounted rate, nearly 2000 dollars.

I'm quite convinced that these guys are great traders, but they are certainly no less marketeers as well.

I will keep an eye on their blogs and materials for a while before I consider joining. Also I already found quite some background materials on these trading methods which I will review first. But: I was never ever so tempted after just one demo...But as good day traders we should resist temptation and go for the full ratio at all times.

This is a really good course.
I bought this course about 2 years ago and I want to say it is one of the better ones out there for sure. I will have to disagree with the other review calling it a market profile course. It is a lot more than that. Market profile/Volume profile is just 1 element to the course material. It's just another tool in the toolbox. You're not just buying a DVD. You are paying for a very comprehensive program. Structured video and written lessons, practice drills, weekly coaching calls etc. If you are serious about trading the index futures and you are a retail trader, you'll want to invest your $ in this.

Best Course on Intraday Trading
I feel like I got the deal of a lifetime ( because I did ) by paying $2,000 for lifetime access to this excellent course material, weekly coaching, and even a fair amount of personal support.

The course material is clean, very much to the point, and highly organized. All of the presentations are very professional, no-nonsense, and clearly put together by people with a passion to teach, and who have been very successful in the super competitive world of trading intra-day futures.

The individual video sessions of the course are not too long, so you do not have to save huge blocks of time. Maneuvering the web site is super easy and needs no explanation, it is all right out there in the open. The course content is very complete in that it covers all aspects of trading. This includes, but is not limited to, market theory and structure with a very well explained and PRACTICAL application of Volume Profile tools, how to deal with risk ( even includes Excel spreadsheets that you can download and use, no training necessary ) , and also much time is spent on the psychological aspects of trading.

The best part is that both Ziad and Awais have no doubt been through it all, the great struggles to learn how to trade and stay in the game, and then thrive. During the coaching sessions, they no doubt understand what people are going through, and they

take even the simplest questions with utmost seriousness. And again, their answers are no-nonsense, honest, and no doubt give one the impression that they are hearing from expert, professional traders who are not perfect, but obviously know how to trade for real, and make money consistently.

This course has changed the way I look at the markets, (on all time frames) and I have subsequently used this course as a benchmark standard. Like another reviewer had mentioned, the integrity of these two gentlemen is beyond reproach, and I trust them as traders, and businessmen without hesitation. The quality of everything they have offered is top notch, with no exceptions. When offered the "Ultimate Trader" program ( MP3 files and PDF transcripts of affirmations for traders) I bought it immediately, it was/is the best investment I have made in my trading career.

Nothing is perfect, so I will have to at least mention one slight potential downside for some traders, and that is that the course and coaching does somewhat favor the emini ES market, using market internals ( NYSE TICK & NYSE Adv/Decline ) during the pit session. However, both Awais and Ziad are very much aware of the fact that many of their clients are not ES traders, and they do everything they can within reason to accommodate those traders. Additionally, it can be said that, to a large degree, a great deal of what is taught in the course & coaching sessions is indeed universal to many liquid instruments that you can trade intra-day, and beyond.

This will be hard work for most, it has to be that way. Depending on how much experience you bring to this course, you may have to work very hard to learn the material deeply, and then, you MUST make it your own. Do that, and the value of this course would be much, much more than the initial investment.

I hope this was useful to you.

Some Good Material
I signed up for OpenTrader in 2013, about 8 months after they started their program I believe. Overall, I had a positive experience, but it was one of the more expensive courses I had taken at $2000.

They basically teach a market profile methodology. When I first went through their course a lot of the concepts were new to me. But as I''ve read more, I realized they basically trade market profile / support and resistance style as do many others. I'm not sure how what they do differs from other market profile methodologies, so perhaps you could get a lot of the same information with a cheaper course somewhere.

I thought the videos and worksheets were quite professional, and they put a lot of work into them. They say over and over that trading is not easy, and it takes time to study their method and learn it. In many ways the things they teach are more subjective than a lot of trading systems and this might be frustrating to some traders who do better with more quantitative systems or more objective systems that use multiple indicators.

I do believe these guys are real traders and know what they are talking about. They are also very good marketers because I see their ads everywhere now, and they have increased the price substantially.

If you're willing to pay the high price, it is a good market profile course, but you may be able to get something similar for a lot less.

Number 1 - Trading Education for trading the futures market
I have been learning to trade futures for 6+ years and blew multiple small account in the past.

I joined the OpenTrader training program, went through the training videos, PDF materials & drills over 10 times. Especially reviewed the trading mindset & psychology section over 20 times to obtain the optimal mindset & conditions for my trading success.

Ziad goes over the importance of risk management and how each trade should be insignificant for taking planned small losses and thinking over the longer term probability to play-out profitably.

To top this off, their weekly coaching calls by Ziad & Awais goes over the questions, concerns, trading ideas, what to expect from the market for the next few days(market overview) and how to switch gears between long and short, where to draw line in the sand to be in the right side of the market and much more.

The open trader training course is invaluable, but the on-going coaching is an ultimatum. Over 4 hrs of personal coaching every month archived for your convenience to review again and again to learn the subtleties of trading.

I was neither told nor paid to write this review. It has come from my heart to write the truth about their valuable education for helping me and many other traders to succeed in trading.

Just one last note, having taken the open trader education, I am averaging little over $2000 per month for one contract by trading two hours of market open everyday part time.

But don't anticipate the such result, Unless you are putting hard work to learn it and earn it.

Best wishes for anyone reading this to find a best education like this..

A dose of trading reality...
Unfortunately far too often you read reviews on training products and services from people who may have researched a product a bit and decided to share what they think it may be like if they did. To be clear, I have been a student and subscriber for about five months. For what its worth, this is my experience and opinion.

I've been trading for about three years and tried a few other courses and at least 10+ books before this one so I wasn't new to trading by any means. This course was completely eye opening. Other courses talk about how important market context is but few tell you what it means to analyze it and allow it to influence your trading decisions. If nothing else you will clearly understand what you're doing and why you're doing it.

Trading isn't easy so understanding how to deal with losses is probably the most important aspect in achieving longevity and in maintaining the proper mindset as you trade. No course has ever helped me with that more than this course.

The integrity of these two gentlemen is beyond reproach in my opinion and there has never been a question that anyone has asked in the sessions or that I personally have put forth that they didn't give its due attention. They seem to truly enjoy teaching and are excellent communicators...both of them. The course is a series of very focused and well structured videos with summary documents for later reference. There is also a series of live coaching sessions that have proven to be nearly as valuable as the course. The concepts in this course are not new or proprietary and can be further examined in other books and videos and I might suggest, as a matter of perspective, its not a bad idea to do so. The course will definitely give you the "Ah-Ha" moment we all hope for from our training, but it will also show you how much work is really required to be consistent and show you exactly the right things to study and further research. So, in that regard it is a very welcomed and useful dose of reality.

If you love trading and are serious, as I am, and willing to roll up the sleeves and get to work..buy this course immediately. If you're just want to dabble with a $1000 FX account...don't waste your time or money.



Hope this helps...good luck to you all!
