Stock Market Mentor

Category: Websites
The cornerstone of The Stock Market Mentor is technical analysis. Technical analysis is used by many, but understood by few. The simple truth is that technical analysis does not predict; it informs. By focusing on what the market is actually doing rather than what the media is saying, we use technical analysis to identify the sectors, industry groups and stocks with the most potential for profits. Tracking these groups enables Mentor Members to be in the right stocks at the right time. The focus of Stock Market Mentor changes as the market changes.

Complete Waste Of Time! Insulting.
So, I originally saw Dan Fitz on TV and thought I would give his service a try. At first it seemed like an okay service, but that QUICKLY faded. If you have ever read a technical analysis book on the financial market, then save yourself his subscription rate. After a couple of weeks to about a month you have basically learned and seen EVERYTHING you will see and learn in the following weeks should you stick around.

He constantly uses terms from stock market books that he and possibly you have read and uses them in a way that makes him sould smarter than he really is. His favorite line is "Listen up cause I'm giving you pearls!" He continually puts people down in the trading forum with his nighty strategy session members video. Sometimes to the point of where he chases people out of the forum for good. It's funny how he comments on members trading styles in his nightly video from what he thinks he sees with their posts in the trading forum. As if he has seen their complete trading portfolio in a glance. One word comes to mind with that,....Arrogant!!! He apparently isnt familar with the saying "Don't bite the hand that feeds you!"

He is wrong quite a bit on maket direction, but will quickly cover that up with little or no coverage on stocks/indexes he pounds the table on if they don't pan out. Don't hold him to the fire on that either in HIS community forum because he will either delete your post or criticize you to the point where others will follow suit. He put a couple of people down...saying that "The guy basically wanted me to tell him how to trade!" Um....maybe you should change the name of your company/website...it's a little misleading!

Half of the nights with the strategy session he sounds like he really doesnt put any effort into the video. Sounds tired or put out. The monthly webinar is a joke. Basically a waste of an hour or so.

So in a nutshell...look somewhere else for guidance on the financial markets.

The benefit fades quickly and the subscription is overpriced
SMM was a great resource for the first month or two. I can honestly say I learned a lot about basic technical analysis. This was in mid-2013.

However, over time you begin to see that Dan just repeats the same things over and over so once you have that down you never really get to see more advanced techniques. I also feel like he started to get lazy at some point in 2014. He was more hesitant to make calls one way or another about the market or a particular stock, and it didn't seem like he made much effort to find things that were working. At $80/month, it's pretty annoying to get 4 videos in a row that don't tell you anything.

I also noticed that when he does have something to say it is mostly ripped off from whatever is published in IBD that day.

As others have said, don't believe the tag lines at the end of the daily videos. It's all marketing hype to sell subscriptions.

The one positive aspect of the site is the forum. I probably got more benefit from the other members than from Dan. It's the only part of SMM that I miss.

SAVE your MONEY wish I did
As a former subscriber I've learned far more for free on youtube and other sites. If you're a quick learner you can learn most of what he will teach within a month, yes a month and there is so much more you really need to know that is never taught. IMO his service is ridiculously over priced for what you get and beware he takes a week off 4x a year that you're paying for. You'd be surprised how much more you can learn for free if you just watch some stock trading videos on youtube, What you see in the free nightly video is what you get when you pay, just more of it. And don't believe the BS at the end of the free videos when he says "members get over to the strategy session now I have something important, you need to know, something for right here right now... All BS just trying to sucker you in. Just because he's on CNBC once in a blue moon doesn't mean you'll be getting top notch TA that will give you leads from what he heard on the set. If he heard anything you won't know, and he is wrong so often if you're not careful you can lose a lot of money. Oh and for the rare occasion he is on CNBC, he ask's his members to write into CNBC saying how great he is.... Arrogant, Obnoxious and average TA best describes Dan and Gary. Honestly save your money or take the free trail and cancel before it ends.

Some Good Instruction - Self-Discovery Journey Annoying
Stock Market Mentor (SMM) is a decent stock trading advice subscription and at a reasonable cost (about eighty-bucks per month), if you’d like to learn the basics, and a few arcane aspects of price-volume chart reading, identifying support and resistance areas. There is, however, little in-depth instruction offered on price-volume indicators, except for Bollinger Bands for which the website chieftain (Dan Fitzpatrick) has an extreme fondness. Otherwise, his primary chart watchdog indicators are the 200 and 50 period moving averages. Unless a specific company is requested by a subscriber, he mostly sticks to analysis of stocks in what Mr. Fitzpatrick calls the “winners’ circle.” These are stocks that are trading in an upward trend in the top right corner of a stock chart, and that have a 50-period moving average with an upward slope.

Mr. Fitzpatrick gives few definite buy recommendations, but specific selling advice is quite rare, except for stocks that anyone can see are already in a death spiral downward. He’s careful regarding his chart price-volume interpretations, with a lot of, “the stock price should do this” advice that is then countered with hedging and “but it could also do this” counseling. The possible buy suggestions (and they are mostly “suggestions”) almost always include employing an almost mandatory stop-loss order – and he almost always advises precisely where to establish that stop-loss (at what price).

Listening to his daily and weekend analyses lately (perhaps over the last three or four months), Mr. Fitzpatrick is not at all bashful about telling his subscribers that this market is definitely going higher. But my sense has been that picking individual stocks for swing trading investing in today’s up-and-down, market-sector schizophrenic market has him often as perplexed as us who are more novices at trading.

The subscription also includes access to the SMM “forum.” The forum is a sort of blog that is available to all subscribers. Here, subscribers can banter back and forth and discuss individual trades and stocks or sectors. I suspect that Mr. Fitzpatrick may obtain a lot of the stocks he chooses to discuss from the forum comments. The forum is, at times, a good source of information and ideas for the SMM subscriber, and there is no requirement that you participate. You can simply “lurk” about, if you so choose.

One annoying aspect of the forum is Mr. Fitzpatrick’s sometimes hypocritical approach to discussions. He can "dis" people and companies all he wants, but if a subscriber makes any sort of critical or disparaging comments, that subscriber is reprimanded and criticized unmercifully by Mr. Fitzpatrick.

Another annoying aspect of Mr. Fitzpatrick’s nightly, weekend and occasional market opening commentaries is that he requires you to go along with him on his journey of self-discovery. For a guy in his early fifties, he should know who he is by now and to inflict on his subscribers his stories of introspection and self-analysis and his experiences at various EST-type (EST = Erhard Seminars Training) seminars is simply boring as heck and wastes the subscribers’ time. Helping Mr. Fitzpatrick find out who he is and what his purpose in life is supposed to be was not why I was paying a monthly fee to be a subscriber.

For instruction in the basis of chart reading, a few simple price-volume indicators, and discerning the chart’s support and resistance areas, SMM is okay for a short-term subscription (in about 3-months,m you should be well drilled and schooled in what SMM instruction has to offer). But for specific stock buy and sell recommendations with no equivocating or temporizing, you should probably look elsewhere – but you’ll also likely pay a lot more for that advice.

Save your 80 dollars a month....
Signed up for the 6-week free trial,

Fitzpatrick is a little too emotional. Pounds his fist on his table; "Shaking my computer speakers like he's talking to a 6 year old"

He constantly forgets things.

He is a On man operation. Says he is not a stock picker's website, however, says you can buy this here if you set a stop there.

He goes thru charts, reviews the trading day, sends out a couple of daily thoughts and stock alerts.

Always says see you in the forum, ask him a question in the forum it often goes un noticed or he is not there.

He and his brother Gary have mentioned having several cocktails during a Q&A.

He pretty much repeats the same every day.

He offers an option membership addition. He really should include it in the 80 bucks, He never mentions how options can be used as insurance and just says use stops.

The guy sounds confused.

Marketsmith is great

Great start,fizzled out
If you´re new to trading this is a safe place to start.

You will learn technical analysis ,stock selection,level of entry and risk management.

When Dan first started out in 2007,he use to put his head on the chopping block.He was specific about which stock to buy with a specific stop.Gradually he has moved away from this courageous approach .He now reviews many, many stocks, a little of everything-much of nothing,leaving the user the choice as to which stock to enter.If it works Dan is a hero,if it doesn´t,well,no one made you buy that specific stock,there were many more to choose from.

He states the obvious about individual charts ie: "this stock is in the winners corner,I woud buy it on any pullback".Or you might hear "The market is going up,you don´t want to be an underinvested bull"

Where has all the specificity of the early years gone to?

I have moved on to Tastytrade.Its free,Its honest,they trade live in full view.They have blow ups but they adjust,they show you how they do it.Complex sophisticated option strategies for all those who take the time to learn.

Don't just feed me ... teach me to fish!
stockmarketmentor.com is exactly what the name says it is - a resource where traders can be mentored about the market. There's no bombastic bragging about trade success, no claims of outperforming sectors, nothing to hype you into joining so you can get rich quick.

This place is about LEARNING - technical analysis, risk management, discipline, and most importantly, self-awareness.

stockmarketmentor.com has two things that no other trading Website can offer:

First, you have a mentor who will give you straight-up technical analysis - with the goal being for every subscriber to become proficient enough at their own trading to no longer even need a subscription. Dan Fitzpatrick is a former hedge fund manager who learned technical analysis directly under John Bollinger. His ability to read technical charts, and then apply the analysis that comes only from one who has worked in that field, is simply brilliant. Perhaps equally as important, though, is the continual focus on risk management, and 'Fitzpatrick's First Rule of Trading' (Don't lose your dough!). If you're looking to get fed trade after trade, you can choose from hundreds of other Websites (or even watch the Twitter or StockTwits feeds). Once I subscribed here and became a true student of technical analysis, my trading performance has improved by orders of magnitude that I can't quantify.

Second, and at least equally as valuable, stockmarketmentor.com has the most collegial and brilliant Forum that I've ever seen anywhere. Subscribers demonstrate a broad spectrum of experience, trading styles, and expertise … and it seems every member contributes without hesitation (about their own trades as well as those of others). Any member asking for feedback will get more than one answer, from almost any other member, with no pretense or motive. No one brags or touts their own successes; on the contrary, most members share their best trade ideas so that other members in the Forum can jump on board! Any trader who may indicate they are struggling or have taken a bad loss will quickly hear from those who have been in their shoes – with reassurances that it happens to all of us. There are simply no crosscurrents or negativity in this Forum. Even on the worst market days, members are constantly sharing their thoughts, analysis, feedback, suggestions, and occasional commiseration about a rough day (but the market will be open tomorrow too!)

If you doubt me ... check it out for yourself. A thirty day trial membership will cost you exactly nothing (and in this market, where do you get ANYTHING free anymore?!?!)

Bottom line, as Cramer says, is that stockmarketmentor.com is an unparalleled resource for technical analysis, disciplined risk management, and a Forum of fellow traders whose value simply can't be quantified.

Great education AND entertaining
I have been around Stock Market Mentor since 2010. Dan Fitzpatrick is a great educator (mentor) and makes the learning fun. He sends out a video each day that is generally about 20-30 minutes long. He is direct and to the point and gives great trading advice (he calls them "pearls"). In addition to his excellent technical analysis, he continually emphasizes risk management which, over the years, has saved tons of money. This website is definitely worth the money.
