Great Primer
The information and training I got at Emini Academy was very valuable. I gained a large amount of education regarding day-trading, the futures market, risk-management, and reading market structure.

To answer the biggest question: Was I profitable? In all honesty, I was a break even trader during my time at the Emini Academy. However, I don't blame this on them at all, it was my own issues that kept me from getting ahead while I was there.

It wasn't until after I left that I started becoming a serious back-tester and taking full responsibility for my own actions in the market - From there I transitioned from a break-even trader to a profitable one.

I'm not sure that anyone can actually become profitable just by sitting in a trading room - at some point, they need to take full responsibility for their own trades, and learn to change/adapt on their own to fit the market, as well as gain the large amount of experience necessary to read price action and understand how price is moving that day.

For example, the system might take all losing trades on a day where the ES is trading badly. However, once you've spent several months watching the ES trade, you will KNOW when the ES is trading bad/blowing stops and when you should just stay on the sidelines. Things like this are only learned through experience, and can't be given to you by anyone.

Chris is a great teacher and goes far out of his way to help students. Unfortunately, if you're not willing to take full responsibility for this profession at some point, you are destined to fail. No trading system is going to replace that - If you truly want to be a consistent, profitable trader, you have to make this YOUR profession. You will not succeed if you just blindly rely on someone else to tell you when to trade.

They do the best they can - But only 50% of success comes from the teacher, the other 50% comes from the student.

EA and MAP Works Pretty Darn Well for Me - give it a shot
Hey all - Dima , the Emini Academy student here.

I got into trading through messing with bitcoin and other altcoins trading. Ran into Chris Dunn on twitter where he was sharing his BTC analyses. Then started watching his videos on EA and quite liked what I saw Primarily because from what I saw these guys were not selling "an automated money-making machine" but rather a TRADING EDUCATION with signals to go along with it, and recognizing the idea that trader's skill as an operator of MAP will make all the difference whether one is successful or not with MAP. I gotta tell you I do not believe in the "free lunch idea" especially after being naive and having bought a couple of fully automated trading bots in the past that were supposed to make me filthy rich (as advertised). So EA MAP course looked attractive for me because I realized I needed to put effort to grow and develop as a consistent profitable trader and have a strategy to trade - and that is what EA guys advertised.

My case might be a bit different from other EA traders in the sense that I had (have) a daytime job and couldn't trade live markets because of that so I started on a self-paced program (month by month) and been on month by month basis for 4 month. I went over all the curriculum and was market-replay trading on sim at night. So I have 3.5 month of trading data and I am at a 53% winning ratio. Because of tight predefined risk and Risk/Reward ratios that EA and MAP requires that allowed me to be "paper-profitable" 13 of 14 weeks of my sim trading. That being said I didn't have access to trading room. I recognized I have still lots of things to improve as far as MAP goes but having over 50% winners made me go live last week. And I also got access to trading room!

Going live and being in their trading room was literally a shocker for me:

- I started to realize what my "crappy" trading weeks had to deal with when I felt being chopped out of the market - From not correctly recognizing the market environments and thus not staying away/taking APPROPRIATE TYPE of trades (leaves me optimistic to where my winning ration can potentially go from here). Dunn/Henry go over the overall market environments and what to expect many times a day in the room, as well as important price areas and levels to watch out for. By the way over the period of time I was with EA new types of trades were added and now MAP has trades for all types of market environments.

- Trading live cash is one helluva mental battle the emotions I experienced were crazy. That is when having trust in your strategy and your prior trading data is very important to not become over emotional and not to miss out on valid entries/exits vs not getting into invalid stupid trades. This first week I took quite a few "NO TRADES" that were not valid for MAP because of being nervous and a few that were outright stupid where Dunn/Henry were specifically "screaming" to stay away from the market. I blame it all on myself and my inability to cope with emotions, but recognizing that it will get better and that I have to work on that aspect.

So, overall first live week was full of surprises specifically how much difference the trading room and support of experienced traders make as far as recognizing market conditions. And also how emotional it gets out there. Having said that even with many stupid invalid emotional trades I made I still came out profitable this week thanks to the R/R ratios rules of MAP.

Looking forward to my second live week and being in the room at EA. MAP works and now I know what I need to work on to improve my performance.

Cheers,

Dima

Mediocre education for professionals, otherwise horrible
If you are already successful and trading profitably with a long and successful track record, I would say the emini academy system is worth looking at just to see if you can incorporate one or two of their elements into your already profitable system (after extensive back-testing).

However, if you are new trader approaching this program, I would say that these two individuals are immoral in the extreme and definitely worthy of the title of scam artists.

Did they start out this way? No, I don’t believe so. They took another system, modified it, and did extremely well during the massive volatility of 2008-2009 (as did virtually every strategy under the sun). Unfortunately, like so many other systems, they began to fail miserably once volatility plummeted back to normal levels. The market is always cycling and changing, and if you have yet to gain this understanding you will likely be wiped out at some point in the near future.

I think they built a company around something that worked for two years, then watched it fall apart and continue to fail up to 2014. Anyone who has spent any time in their live rooms can see obviously that the vast majority of the students are losing and never making money. The main teacher, the head scam artist, ignores all of the losing days, and then advertises like hell on the 3-4 days of the month that are actually profitable. Since he has never traded successfully himself (several insiders enlightened me of this) I quickly lost all respect for this company. At some point, the two head teachers decided to throw their morality out the window and do whatever was necessary to keep the company going. They do not trade their own system, as it is extremely unprofitable in its current state.

Again, if you are already profitable on your own (as I am), and you can afford the fees, it may give you another idea or two that you may incorporate into your trading plan after you’ve fully analyzed it and back-tested it. Other than that, I believe these two deserve to go broke, and WILL at some point after lying and scamming so many people. They spend all day advertising the system, NOT teaching you to trade. Notice that NONE of the reviews are from anyone who says they have been profitable for an extensive period of time.

Experience is what makes you long-term profitable, not a one-time system developed from past data.

Great Day Trading System for the New Markets
Great Day Trading System for the New Markets

As a preface I am sorry for the lengthy write up but wanted to try and provide some helpful perspective of what EA is all about. For anyone looking for the Holy Grail of trading software that is going to give you entry triggers without understanding market movement or understanding yourself I would recommend continuing your search. What EA offers is software and rule based system that provides clear entry signals, profit targets and stops that you can trade with when market conditions are favorable. Top down analysis is key and when you learn to combine all the ingredients of trading the correct market environment, top down analysis and the MAP software you will be rewarded.

I joined Emini Academy in June 2013 purchasing a lifetime membership. Chris Dunn and Chris Henry have put together an excellent curriculum and also provide a personal level of service I have not seen in other trading rooms. They give instant feedback reviewing trades and individual charts live in the trading room as well as provide feedback for trading plans and weekly trading logs if one chooses to request it by email. The curriculum is packed with educational information from A – Z so you can get a good grasp of the MAP software, the various sets ups and an understanding of how to read the market environment. In addition to the Training Curriculum there are Foundation Class recording which are essential to learning how to trade using the MAP software. Every Wednesday night at 8 pm EST there is a foundations class that typically runs about an hour or slightly over which is very beneficial and where the foundations videos are sourced.

In the area of expectancy if you’re looking to make 5 more trades a day everyday EA MAP may not be the strategy for you. There will be some days that I do not make a single trade, others that I might take 1 or 2 then there are those exceptional days that I take 5 or more trades. I have personally taken some trades that have led to a 7+ point run in the ES and 40+ YM points. The goal is obviously to take small losses (no way to avoid them) and bigger winners. What I am suggesting hear is based on the bull run we have been in and the VIX essentially being in the teens since mid 2012 and change once we see volitility returns.

A little insight to my journey: I am guilty of trying to speed through the curriculum myself and started trading live about a month after joining quickly realizing that I had more work to put in. I blamed the indicators, the markets then calmed down and went back to simulate for about another 4 months and started to become more consistent focusing on the process rather than focusing trying to make money. I went live again in Jan 2014 and I am in the black for the year but still have much to learn about myself as I still tend to take an occasional “No Trade”. So far this year I am at 57% win ratio as I type and my goal is to get to the 70% range by EOY. By getting rid of the few “No Trades” I am still taking I should be able to achieve this goal.



Closing thoughts: Dunn and Henry are great teachers and I continue to learn from them every week. They have developed a system that works but as stated you really have to put everything together in order to be successful. One cannot expect to walk in a blindly trade set ups without understanding the bigger picture of the markets, current environment and achieve optimal results. As Dunn mentions this is not a red light green light system. You do have to learn how the markets move to understand when to pull trigger and when to wait for a better shot. With that said there is only so much Dunn and Henry can do to help you along in your trading journey. What I mean by this is at some point every trader has to take responsibility for personal results. I see some recent feedback from someone that is obviously frustrated after a short 3 month stay in the room. I am not sure who this individual is but I would go out on a limb to suggest they rushed through the curriculum and moved into trading prematurely without an understanding of broad market and day to day environment. It’s very important not to rush through the process, if you try to go through it too quickly as I initially did you will miss a lot of vital information and it will only slow down the learning process. It’s also critical for whatever system you choose to go with to trade your own plan and charts. While we all trade by the same set up rules there is a difference between set up rules and trading your plan.

I hope this helps and good luck in your trading journey.



John

Emini Academy Is Nothing But A Very Expensive Toy - Bevare
- You pay way too much for way too little !

- You`ll never get ahead with this software !

- You are very excited at first - you think you found something great - you`ll slowly realize it doesn`t work at all - by then it`s too late and you can just leave with your tale between your legs !

- Not enough students stand up and speak up !

- I`m amazed Emini Academy gets away with this kind of business !



- They make all their money from new students - 99% fail miserably and leave without speaking up - it takes way more to succeed than what Emini Academy can provide you with !

- Do yourself a favor - look elsewhere for better software/training/systems/trading rooms

- Other systems out there offer way better insight/software/training for half the price of Emini Academy !

- I left the Emini Academy about 3 months ago and are successful !

Please do not waste your time or money......!!!!!!!
I joined EminAcademy late december 2013 - studied like a good student - practiced like recommended - attended all wednesday classes to improve my knowledge.

Joined the live trading room and observed at first - then started trading SIM.

After SIM I started live trading.

Now after 3 month in the room and trading it`s obvious the MAP system is not working as advertised....you will NOT get enough set ups and trade entries......you are lucky if you get a few trades a day - most of the time you are watching the market leaving you behind in the dust taking off without having valid retracements/price action.

Don`t let the nice guys at EminiAcademy fool you in to believing it`s you and up to your education you are not succeeding. I haven`t really seen too many great trades posted in the room all this time by neither students nor moderator. If you are in a trading room it would be great if at least moderator could post great trades - right - then you would be convinced it really works - he never knocks it out of the park and proves it.....NEVER......!!!!

Moderator is supposed to be in the room all day long helping and educating traders - most days he is around in the morning hour......after that he is mia and busy with other things....he might pop in for a few minutes here and there......that`s all.....!!!

I have spent all day for months in the room. I would love if it really worked - it DOES NOT.

I know EminiAcademy doesn`t have too many bad reviews - that`s why I initially joined - but please trust me when I say other systems out there works better.

I know the guys listed below from the room and honestly Robin is still SIM trading and Luiji haven`t showed too many good results in the room either and goes to school and trades from Australia a few hours here and there.

Check out other systems out there - some have a trial periods in their live room to see what`s going on - some have 30day money back.

Emini-junkie.com is one of them - that`s the room I`m joining now - I signed up for a trial period in their live trading room to make they could perform better - they have a lower initial fee and they have a monthly rate.

All that truly show me they are serious and can deliver - or no one would keep paying a monthly fee - right.

Or check out Thedaytradingacademy.com - that guy was Dunn`s friend and was part of Emini Academy - but left and started his own system - check out his site.

EminiAcademy take a big initial fee - to get your money - no monthly fee after that.

They have a big number of new students come in - not sure many stay around too long.

Hope this will get you on the right path to success - and hope you don`t waste your money on a system that doesn`t perform as promised - and trust me they are good at convincing you....!!!

Dunn is great in all his video`s etc. - but he is busy travelling the world and is hardly ever around for anything other than damage control if someone in the room gets frustrated with the low winning % or the lack of set ups/entries.

It`s obvious EminiAcademy is selling an expensive system with low entry/winning ratio.....!!!

I`m not getting anything out of this other than hopefully you looking around and trying something else before you waste your money like I did.

The best tool to help devoted traders achieve success
First off, a bit of background:

I started out trading penny stocks based off of announcements. I did poorly. Heart crushingly so, actually. I was one of those chumps who listened to someone else's advice - hype from friend, from forum, you name it. Because I was always reliant on the advice of others, I never felt quite confident in my independent trading knowledge/decisions. (Maybe that's a subconscious way of avoiding responsibility for losses?). Aside from trading confidence, I didn't have a trading plan, or a trading journal - pretty much everything that EA teaches you straight off the bat.

What drew me to the capital markets initially was the money. I wanted to GET RICH QUICK. My focus wasn't on skill development or thinking in terms of probabilities. I mean, who cares about that, right? Especially when you can make a huge lump of money in half a day (which my friend did, and made me feel like I could also if I got in)! That kind of thinking is exactly why I lost money.

And after getting kicked particularly hard in the nuts one time, I looked around YouTube (either as distraction or for some form of guidance) and I came across a video by Dunn. What striked me first was his sincerity and candour. (That was one of the main reasons why I joined EA, a couple of months after watching that video). And let me tell you, after interacting with him and the rest of the EA community, I can confirm that what you see is what you get with these guys.

So I've been with EA for five months now. I've learnt so very much during this time. Still got a WHOLE bunch to learn though.

I'm not sure what the average reader of these reviews expect to see to be convinced. If you're looking for testimonials about how a trading strategy has made XYZ five million dollars and ABC twelve million... well based off of my own exp, I can tell you that all that hype is going to do for you is feed you false expectations and, when they are not met, let you down in dramatic fashion.

Bottom line:

If you are determined to become a consistently profitable trader, and be willing to put in the work (I'm not going to give you hype here, this is legit stuff), and if you immerse yourself in the EA education process, and trade with them on a consistent basis, I think you'll have good chance of achieving your trading goals. Nothing is guaranteed, but EA has certainly helped my trading mentality. And it is far from done in helping me to achieve my personal trading goals!

Peace outtt

Best Day Trading Education Available
The simple way Chris Dunn and Chris Henry explain and educate is easy to understand. The discipline he teaches is invaluable. His trade management plan is so good. I traded for many years and no one told me exactly where and how to place a FIB. I've used them before but never with the understanding that Chris Dunn teaches. Not only does he teach the method but he trains our minds to be successful Risk Managers. I'm finally successful since joining the Emini Academy. Aaaaand, they are a fun and entertaining bunch. All this for a price lower than any other School I've heard of. Winner!!

My background, before the Emin Academy:

Graduate of Options Animal Options Trade School

Former student of Waxy: Michael Parness, big time scalper. "How to Rule The Freakin Markets"

Completed Steve Nisson's Candle Stick Course.

Great place to start (no previous experience required)
If you are looking to day trade, one thing you should strive for is consistent results. No matter your experience, the guys at Emini Academy will help you reach those goals if you are willing to put in the work.

Before becoming a member, my first few weeks were spent going through all the free material, watching videos and deciding if it was really something I wanted to devote my time and energy to. After making the decision to join, I then spent another 2 months going through the curriculum, attending online classes and sim trading.

My experience trading with CD (founder) in Austin, Texas was unlike anything else I have done in my life....dude is on the level. If you decide to make the commitment, know you're efforts will be matched by those at the academy. I'd say good luck but it's not about that.
