Alright, all the non-5-star reviews here are quite stupid, so I'm going to attempt a more balanced one. What Ross does, he does EXTREMELY well, and that is teach newbs with small accounts and a million questions the basics. He seriously has the patience of a saint for answering the same 25 questions time after time week after week, and he should absolutely be compensated for this, nothing wrong with that. He's built a system where there is a strong infrastructure and technique to do this effectively. The review complaining about SureTrader is ridiculous. If you're too broke to use a real broker, you have to use ST to day trade and avoid the PDT rule, it's that simple. As far as the other mods in the room, I haven't seen anything great from them in my time there. Anyone can make a bunch of guesses, stop out of half of them, and hold the others for an hour or a day, it really isn't rocket science.
That said, the technique he uses is *A* technique, it is not *THE* be-all end-all technique. I joined for a short time because I occasionally saw his posts around stocktwits, and was genuinely curious what he was doing for the masses. But being incredibly frenetic and unable to stay in a position more than 5 minutes is not how people with real money and years of experience behind them trade. That is not to say it doesn't work, but it's kind of like the difference between chopping down a giant tree over several tries with a small ax, or in one attempt with a chainsaw. My objection is the idea that this is the only way to make money in the market. That one should be long biased and trade volatility quickly every single morning with a small daily goal. Any other technique gets called "gambling" which makes me laugh. Especially when I've been FT trading independently for several years, and have made 85% of my money on shorts this year, because I adjusted for recent market conditions and went big on major plays. And here are all these people struggling to average $100 on their "daily goal", getting stopped out all over the place, calling out "gambling" lol. It's the market! Of course it's gambling. The edge is finding something specific you're good at recognizing, and managing risk while you capitalize on that edge. The pros (those I used to work with) aren't hanging out in ANY of these new goofy 'guru' chatrooms, they're focused on analyzing, reading, and trading! The fact is, the vast majority of these newbs will never get there, they'll burn out, churn out, and get to keep their day jobs. Would that have happened anyway with or without Ross? Yes. Will a few people leave these ranks and actually be able to trade and evolve on their own? Sure, but again, that minority would likely have found a way to educate themselves and succeed at making this a FT career in any case.
