My basic trading philosophy can be summed up by one simple quote:

"Trade the ticker, not the company" - Nate Michaud

Question: "What DVDs do you recommend?"

This is going to be an easy answer, because I've only seen two trading DVDs, and I recommend both of them! The two DVDs I've viewed are "Pennystocking Part Deux," by Tim Sykes, and "Investors Live: Textbook Trading DVD," by Nate Michaud.

In addition to these DVDs, I've created one of my own, "Trading Tickers: the Long and Short of it." If you read the linked FAQ post, you can see why I think this DVD stands out above the rest, aside from the fact that I made it ;) However, if you want some unbiased opinions, you should be sure to read the early reviews my DVD has been receiving!

"Pennystocking Part Deux" focuses mainly on chart patterns and identifying various setups. It's packed with content, and Sykes keeps it quite entertaining with his wit and over-the-top personality he's certainly well known for. I viewed this DVD during the summer of 2011, when I was first getting started. I found this DVD was quite helpful to me as a beginner, as I was still learning the basics of chart patterns.

"Investors Live: Textbook Trading DVD" came out more recently, so I had a very different perspective since I was viewing it from the standpoint of being a far more experienced trader. Even from this perspective, though, I'd have to be blind not to see the value of it. Nate's DVD is incredibly in-depth, covering everything from chart patterns to building your own watchlists. His attention to detail is incredible, and I really do think there is something in here for everyone, no matter where you are in your trading career.

If I come across more DVDs and think they're worth sharing, I'll add them to this list. I hope this helps!

  3. Hey tim, after following you throughly, and studying Sykes and Nate. It appears that you follow Nates strategy a little more than Sykes. Would you agree with that? The reason why I am asking is because whatever strategy you are using seems to be far more superior than any trader to date. I would kind of like to follow in your footsteps till I am able to critique my only style. Thanks as always

    1. Yeah I'd say my strategy is closer to Nate's these days, as we both trade liquid stocks primarily

  4. Thank you so much for sharing! I cant believe you have only watched one of Tims DVDs! I was debating on how to start this journey (already have Pennystocking silver subscription -for a couple of days only and have lost on my first 2 trades :/ because I was not learning just following Tim). I have ordered Nates dvd and now going to look for Pennystocking Part Deux.

    After joining the Millionaire Challenge you didnt watch any of the other dvds? As well, what do you think about the manuals , are they just the slides from the dvd or a must?

    Thank you!

  5. Hello Tim, I think u forgot to mention 1 very important factor before selling your "Trading tickers" DVD to foreign customers, which btw is not cheap! Do non US citizens like me have be satisfied with the garbage called Suretrader? Or do we just forget all about pennystocks and your "good" price?

    1. If you can't trade the US markets then it would be foolish to buy trading dvds geared towards US markets. I guess I was working under the assumption that only people who could make use of my DVD would buy it. It's like yelling at the guy you buy a lawnmower from when you don't have a lawn in the first place.

  6. @Unknown be a man and put your name on it with a comments like that, Tim shares all this info for FREE!!!

    Sorry Tim, just had to say that, my question/ comment is i see your strategy as it's own, why didn't you watch more? I know Sykes is long winded, believe me i know.

    1. I guess at the time I only could afford a few, and once I got my feet under me and started trading well I didn't want to cloud my head with more info. I wanted to stick to what I was good at and further develop my strategies!
