FROM STUDENTS TRADING THE STOCK MARKET
If you want to
thinking like an investor!
Traders eventually get home runs trading the stock market.
Home runs are great, but they are not what you're
consistency is what you want.
Singles, doubles... works just fine. It's the law of large
numbers; the more you take trades when the
odds are in your
favor, the more you enhance the
probability of being in the right
place at the right time.
I try not to include comments about
performance because what one
person does is relative only to them. How
much they are working with, what risk will they accept, etc.,
all have a material impact. So
someone else's performance is of no importance to you.
There are only three instances of dollars in the comments below: outlined
black, it's the size of the winners
had, which is why I include them. You might say, "Yes, but
they started with more money." Maybe, but it's all
relative considering percentage gain.
Yes please, I would like to continue getting
Trader Thoughts. I continue to learn how to
think about the market and what might happen
after reading all the tea leaves. I find it very
interesting and am very thankful that you enjoy
writing about and trading the market and then
share it with us, your current and former
I would like to continue to receive your Trader
Thoughts. No fear, you have helped me to learn how
to trade both ways. I have had a couple of nice
short trades recently. Just wish I could find more
time to be active in the market! Thanks
John, I certainly do want to continue receiving
Trader Thoughts. Your coaching helped me to get
started in trading, and I always mention your name
to anyone who expresses an interest in stocks or
options. Thank you, --- Jason F.
Here is my testimonial: I was a public school
teacher for eighteen years, and I always tried to
teach my students to THINK, a hard to test skill
that would serve them well through life. I deplore
the recent "teach for the test" mentality now
prevalent in the classrooms. Using the same "learn
to think" philosophy, John Robichaud teaches his
market trading students well. I have taken lessons
for over a year and even at my advanced age have
learned a great deal. John is always very patient,
and his lessons and Trader 3500" are way more fun
than playing dominoes at the Senior Citizen Center.
The note below is from Kim,
a photographer by trade when I met her. She took
sessions, we traded side by side... and then she
changed in a big way. Kim is an example of success
in two ways... she learned to trade, she changed
careers in a big way. The Trader Thoughts she refers
to are my daily market commentary and analysis.
I hope you send this to your trader thoughts
I have been a student for almost 4 years with John.
I started this venture with no knowledge other then
my investments that my broker placed while
allocating my assets. After 4 yrs, I have passed my
CMT1 (chartered market technician) test, which
trust me, and or ask John how difficult this is and
I still have two more levels of technical analysis
exams to be considered as a Chartist. You may want
to check out the Market Technicians Association.
If you are only in this for the stock picks you are
doing yourself an injustice. The market is more than
stock picks. If that is all this is about then
listen to Cramer, let the stock run up from the
Cramer effect and the short it. Or may want to google the Cramer effect or talk to a few traders
and hear their results from following Cramer.
Remember that the show is for entertainment purposes
Stock picks may have worked great a few years ago,
but now that capitalism has been changed by our
government and the free market is no longer free. I
believe that you need to know the workings of the
market, a foundation of economics (and not just from
your college professor) along with the thoughts of
many traders and what they think, feel as they look
at the economic indicators, the market and what the
government is doing.
To bring my thoughts to a close....you are doing
yourself an injustice by not reading the trader
thoughts and seeing how a trader views the market. I
have impressed many MEN on wall street and the
technical analysis in the back room of the top firms
with my knowledge that I have gained from John. I do
not have a finance degree and have never had an
economics class. I have impressed many in the
financial field recently at meetings quoting from
Johns traders thoughts when I didn't have the time
to do my own due diligence on the market that day.
Good luck in your trading and remember to pay
attention to the charts, economic indicators and
what real traders are thinking and doing.
In response to
a "hello, how are you doing" email I sent to Jerry
this was his response... gotta' love it:
"Thanks for thinking of me. Time does fly, my trip
was in 2007, Wow. Yes I am trading but at a much
longer time frame and less stress and more success .
I read your trader thoughts every day and believe it
is the main factor in my accounts success up 150%
since the 2008 highs. I get in when the worst is
forecast but never all at once. Get out when the good
times r here, but never all at once. I have been out
since April when the SPX was at 1413. If today's
selling holds with vol. I will reenter 25% of my
account at close. I will watch those long term
bearish patterns and have plenty of cash if they
play out. Or if a massive QE whatever comes next,
then I will be ready too. I have learned capital
preservation is key, not be greedy, and be grateful
for teachers like u! Cheers John, Jerry" -
“John is extremely
well versed in the trading and investment arena. He
is patient, well organized, thoughtful and
resourceful. He has a unique talent in getting
people to experience the "aha" moment in training.
Since working with John I have become a much more
disciplined investor and have seen my results
improve markedly. The added results have paid for
John's fees many times over. John is always willing
to put the effort in to make sure that his students
succeed.”-- Mike R.

“Do not even think
about investing unless you know what John can teach
you. You can never trust a broker, they are
salesmen. You can trust John. He s an outstanding
teacher with years of experience. He will not tell
you what to buy, but he will teach you what you need
to know to invest wisely.”
Bill S. May 25, 2012
“In short, John is
magnificent!!! The time he spent coaching me is
truly unforgettable. In just one session of doing
live trading, I almost quadrupled the amount he
charged me for the sessions. He has a vast amount of
tools to share, tremendous amount of experience, and
practical knowledge. I would recommend his coaching
to anyone. Hands down. His ability to coach via
online methods, makes his coaching available to
anyone on the planet. Most importantly, I felt like
he really cared about my success. Thanks a million
John!! I will use your services again.”

I thought you’d like to hear a “Student done good”
story – on Monday I got stopped out of SLV but got
back in after a reversal to the upside, then on
Tuesday I put on straddles on SLV and AGQ and SDS,
because I figured SOMETHING was going to happen (I
bought my first puts!). I put about a 20% stop on
both sides of the straddles, when SLV took off today
the puts fell off and my account went up $86k, I
sold my entire position at the close to make sure I
get to keep it. I am now totally out of SLV/AGQ (for
now) and will sleep just fine tonight. Thanks for
all your help! I look forward to talking Saturday.

I wanted to give you some feedback regarding
your 'Daily Commentary'.... (re: the Trader 2011)
I have found it to be invaluable to have you as
part of my trading day. I realized the first
week that it can and does have an VERY positive
impact on my trading decisions. The questions
and comments from other participants only
enhances the experience. Financially the monthly
fee was easily covered through ideas and
suggestions received in the first few days! Who
knows how much money stayed in my account by
listening to your comments and waited.
Your new service is a must for serious students
Cannot thank you enough!

Just a quick
note to thank you for your support this past year as
I studied trading. You daily thoughts and
encouragement pushed me to learn. I was so
disappointed that you canceled the webinar.
I have worked
hard and I am now profiting apx $1,000.00 a week.
This is all due to my strict discipline that you
have taught me. I have learned this is not a
get rich quick scheme and not to bet the ranch for a
quick buck. I have learned it is strict
discipline and calculated risk and reward.
Thank you for
the encouragement and your constant support!
John Robichaud is the
trading coach who really taught me how to think and
are no other services like his that i’ve seen in the
entire stock market.
Everyone just wants to sell you something without
really being honest with you about the depth of
knowledge and commitment that one must have to be
consistently successful in the stock markets.
gives most of what they are trying to sell you away
for FREE on his own site.
his mentorship and his incredible Finviz channel, I
have learned more about the true inner workings of
the market than all of the courses/ books that I’ve
ever taken/read, with the exception of Mark
Douglas’s incredible book “Trading in the Zone”.
John is a coach like
mastery and depth of knowledge shows up constantly
in all of his great stock picks and every comment
that he posts on his site.
only that, he is constantly available by instant
messaging to answer any queries you may have and
just talk to and trade the markets with.
understands economics, finance, psychology and all
the other forces that drive prices in the stock
Ted H. - Canada 5/30/10
I don't really recall having an obstacle that would
have prevented me from signing on with you. ... What I appreciated the most
was your organization and being prepared for me the
student. Another factor is you portray your passion
for the market from the get go and that feeds the
students fire to want to be able to trade the
markets like you.
- Your dedication to your
students is indescribable. You are able to
empathize and understand because you have walked the
very same road your students will walk. Your
honesty is also a huge factor. What I found with
signing on with you is that this is something i can
do with the right guidance and discipline. You have
everything laid out in simple terms and you give
ample amount websites one can work with to learn
this. You are the real deal and that is the only
type of person one should learn from. You genuinely
want your students to succeed at this, that is rare
thing in this field. You don't put us on an
assembly line and walk away when session is over.
Your accessibility to the students is also another
thing you won't find anywhere else. I can easily
say I would have probably walked away from this a
long time ago with out your guidance, due to
frustration. Thank you for being so patient.
- What I like about your
coaching technique is the learning didn't end when
the sessions did. Again your accessibility is key
to your students. Also your website was a huge
factor in my learning. I would be able to go there
and print off items and bookmark key websites for
myself to work with and learn from. The book stuff
is important and necessary, but you were key in
taking all of the book items and putting them
together for me to apply to take trades.
- As you know I worked with
TMTT also and by far in comparison you blow them out
of the water. You have given me the drive to want
to succeed at this by not just showing how to use
all of the information I gather but by believing and
having a vested interest in my success and that sets
you light years away from others who teach trading.
The benefits of working with you are many. Examples
being how news can affect market (all news including
overseas news and markets), how to read and prepare
for earnings, and how emotions have no place in
trading. You have shown me the cycles the market
goes through, such as with earnings starting again I
know how to be more prepared to trade the earning
season and what to watch for, how to interpret the
earnings announcements so on and so forth. I have a
gold mine of information you have taught me that I
have accumulated over the years and how to put all
of that to work for me. That is so key to this.
You also stress the discipline
which I know is difficult for me for I don't know
what reason considering I have OCD. You have
stressed that from the get go, which can be the
largest piece to this puzzle to succeed. If you
don't have an account you can't trade. I
unfortunately found that out the hard way.
The biggest benefit by far
though is working with you one-on-one - your
experience in this has been key to my learning.
Your sessions and you having come to the house were
huge in my learning process during the open market
time. Doing actual trades together and watching and
listening as the trade played right out in front of
my face. Specific examples I still remember where
on MA and DE.
- I would never hesitate to
hand some one your name if they have interest in the
market - I think anyone would be wasting their time
and money going anywhere else to do so. Your
honesty, people person, patience, experience,
- I am not sure there would be
much to add other than there is not much more you
can feasibly do as a coach. You give the student
literally everything they need to be able to trade.
The one thing that is out of your hands Yoda is how
a students takes that information and uses it. The
fact that you let your students know that this is
not an easy endeavor shows your honesty and
dedication to them. I could appreciate the fact
that this was something to be worked at and will
always put the time in necessary. I still have yet
to get the discipline down pat and get my confidence
- You are all around a great
coach, person, and a successful trader. The perfect
role model for any of your students. You show
dedication, desire, passion, interest, knowledge,
and you are very good at using those qualities to
teach your students.
--Kim S. (Green Bay) 4/12/2010
John! My name is Melissa and I spoke to you last
year about getting sessions for Casey. I wanted to
let you know a couple of things...
1) The coaching sessions that Casey has
had with you has changed
As you can probably tell, Casey is a
very sweet and quiet person. A man of few words.
There are only a couple of things that tend to
really light him up. During and after your
coaching, I was able see how much he enjoys and
is fascinated by learning about the stock
market. I don't know the details or terminology
of what he does with the market and I know he
has a lot more to learn - but I LOVE his passion
for it. My goal is to begin to make more than
enough for us so that he is able to focus on the
market all day, instead of running the rat race
of corporate America:) Thank you for being the
great mentor that you are. I know that Casey
will be enrolling with you again at some point
down the line.
2) My friend, Tonya, may be contacting
you to get sessions for her husband for
Christmas. They live in South Carolina. Good
people:) I hope they make the decision to enroll
I hope to get to meet you one day.
John - Thanks for everything I've haven't had the chance to
personally acknowledge you. You've been one of the most
knowledgeable and open coaches I've ever had in my life on
any subject. Not only you are an absolute expert in trading,
but it is inspiring to see your energy and commitment at
100% to teach 90 minutes after the call started... this
means a lot to the student, it is not about the money but
about learning the basics to make money... - A.J.
It's been a few weeks since I completed four months under your
mentorship. As the saying goes....."time flies when you're
having fun (and making money)".
Thanks so much for sharing your experience and all of the
wonderful resources that have taken you so many years to
accumulate. While I was a bit cautious at first, you
quickly put me at ease as you assessed exactly how we should
best proceed to turn my very "fundamentalist investor" bias into
a balanced approach more suited to active trading in the fast
paced online marketplace. I still recall your truisms and
advice throughout my daily and weekly routines,
and I work confidently now knowing that
I am well prepared to make competent assessments and
trades. Your shared
insight into the psychology of the market has been invaluable.
I especially appreciate your continued support and contact...
as you seem to magically know just what additional coaching you
still need to send my way via email at just the right time
!! Many thanks too for the wonderful website and all of the
web links that I still reference frequently. I know that
there is much yet that I can learn and improve, and look forward
to sharing some additional time together in the future. Bottom
line.....you're the best.
You delivered as promised, and then some.
Take Care, and once again...many thanks. - Gayle
"...You have helped me more then you
will ever know and my time with you has been great!!! I
love talking economics with you because I find it so interesting
and you know so much. You have given me so many website
not to mention your webpage that has so much to help someone
like me, I really appreciate it so much. I
do have a plan to get me going so keep your fingers
crossed for me.
Thanks for everything, Syl
"I now have a different company coach that I am
not finding near as helpful as you are.
Just wanted to let you know that I think you are a great coach
and when I need more help I will be in contact."
"Your emails and your information is right on target and
today, i am in a very good shock... after reading your daily
emails and spending 6 or 8 sessions with you, five weeks ago i
decided to nibble with swing trading...i started with a $350,000
account with scottrade that has no ability to take bracket
orders or stops... today, after the closing of today's market,
that account is over $850,000...i never dreamed that with your
help, i would be doing this well... your teaching has done
wonders for me...and if have only had time to go over approx 20%
of the questions i actually have in order to become a better
trader...i wish to give credit where credit is due, and you are
simply incredible...if you are available and if you have an
opening this weekend, i can meet sometime on saturday, or else
early on sunday morning...my sincere thanks, Doug"
<<Doug was not a beginner but he started trading options and it
all worked...rather welI.
I was looking for someone to teach me how to trade the market,
and I found exactly what I was looking for in John Robichaud. He is one of those great teachers that one comes across only a few times
in a lifetime. John is extremely knowledgeable of the
subject matter, from the minutia of what all the indicators mean
to how to interpret the macroeconomics. He has given me a
body of knowledge, with explanations of the human activity that
moves the markets, that is all those numbers on those pesky
turned me onto the excitement and interest
of it all. I was looking for a way to make
money, but now I feel that not only can I profit monetarily, I
am also having fun doing it.
In addition to that, John is a very patient teacher and extra generous with his time. He also
charges a fair price so it is good
If you want a good coach check out his website. Everything
is actually there to learn by yourself for free, but if you want
a person to guide and support you in a continuing, enthusiastic
hands on way, John is a great choice. In Appreciation, Rita S.
Watching and having John at your side for three complete days I
think is what is going to make me or anyone successful at this
whole adventure. He was willing to give me all the time I
wanted and having 100% of his attention on you is what makes
this unique. He watches what you do, how you do it, react to it
and understand it. You also get the opportunity to watch what
he does and will explain to you his reasons for his routines. I
am planning on having John come out again next summer, by that
time I am hoping to take everything to yet another level.
Having him sit next to me and explain and help me prepare for
the trading day, work the trading day, and end the day was a
huge asset. He also helps you set attainable goals with what
you know and what you have. I know making the decision to have
John come here was well worth every penny spent, because I now
see that I can make it up in no time with the proper routine and
discipline that John helped me set up for myself. I now feel
much more comfortable in my decision making, and I am now taking
more trades and more contracts with my trades with the
confidence that he instilled in me.
Kim S. in
I would be more than happy to answer your questions
regarding John. I believe that I first started with him
probably about a year ago.
My husband and I had been to a few seminars,
purchased a trading program and started with absolutely no
experience. I had several sessions with John as my mentor/
coach last year and yes I was actively trading. Things
were going really well, I felt confident in the market with the
information that I had learned, and I was making money.
Life got busy and I stopped putting in the time to actively trade, and
felt like I'd lost my edge; so I contacted John again for
additional mentoring sessions.
I believe that his style of coaching is
probably geared to the individual student. Although I
began with absolutely no knowledge, I wanted to learn at a rapid
pace, and John was willing to teach at this pace, but made
absolutely sure that I understood what I was learning before
proceeding further into the "market".
I continued to attend additional seminars as I had
already paid for a package deal) and
can tell you that the coaching/teaching that I have received
from John far exceeds the "expensive seminars" that I have
attended as well as the information learned.
John has a knack for bringing the
complicated world of trading into a simple everyday
understandable language and system that is easy to learn and
apply, and ultimately make money at; if you invest the time!!
I did learn information at the seminars that I
attended, but I attribute my success in learning and
understanding the stock market to JOHN.
He really is an amazing coach and seems
to know where your weaknesses and strengths lie as well as how
to tap into them to maximize the coaching experience.
I can tell you that I intend to be trading on a full
time basis next year. (I need to put more time in
currently in order to progress) I will continue
to contract with John as my mentor/coach as I believe that his
methodology, coaching skills and level of expertise span from
beginner to expert level. He is readily
available, flexible, has great people skills and his knowledge
of the market continues to amaze me. I am obviously quite
impressed with his services!!!
I don't tend to recommend people or services readily,
as my standards are quite high in this regard, but I would
recommend John Robichaud to anyone who has a willingness and
desire to learn and succeed as a trader in the stock market.
He really is terrific!
Please feel free to email me
if you have more questions, I'd be more than happy to answer
top of page
have always received what I expected and more, much more... You have been very patient with any and all
I specially like that you can control my cursor and navigate to
needed web sites rather than wait for me to hunt and peck for
the same web site. The sessions become
very profitable as to time use and content.
The sessions are personable and not
canned. John you keep giving me more and more insights
into to effective trading.
I have spent thousands of dollars in the past to learn to
trade--- BUT I have received more value
and more on going value by times with John than all the other
times put together. I would like to have had some of
that money back and invest in more weekly times with John.
I have had to adapt to a different approach to trading models
or strategies from when I first started. John has helped me make
the change with his hands on approach and personable
The website is the most comprehensive
website and it is constantly being added to. The great
advantage is it directs me to free or less expensive tools that
are very helpful. Many so-called seminars and workshops offer a
morsel of information but have to pay more and more to get more
morsels... John's web site is comprehensive and total with
multiple links to additional resources.
When you added the website to the
individual, personal-focused weekly sessions, you have a
powerful trading education that is second to none...
Now that John has added the monthly/weekly stock possibilities,
he not only mentions some stocks to explore but also continually
sends email to follow the ever changing market that also could
affect any stock possibilities.
John is available for personal contact beyond the weekly
sessions. He wants me to be successful, and he will do anything
he can to help me understand. I would
recommend the site, the sessions and the follow-up. They are
all worth more than the money cost paid. In this day and
age when one wants to get his/her
money's worth, what John
provides is the best value in the market today...
These are some of my thoughts of the great appreciation for the
opportunity I have learned to benefit from your teaching. I may
not have made much money YET, but I will, I know it will come.
In response to a skeptical student
prospect, this student writes...
It is good to hear from you.
As to what level I was at when I started trading. I would consider
myself to have been a beginner. Even though I did trade
options through a broker in the late “80’s”, I did not do the
work required to make the choices. In addition, I have a
bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, so I do
understated principles behind the numbers and types of financial
instruments. So why did I consider myself to be a beginner
because I really needed was to learn how to read price, volume,
chart patterns and how to follow the sector rotation. John has
been of great help in these areas and many others. I would
now consider my skill level to be at the start of the
His style of teaching: John does use a syllabus and follows it
throughout your training. It is setup for beginner and
intermediate students. He has modified it some from me,
but he tries to stick with the program. Also, he is willing to
take extra time to cover a subject that you need help in.
I am currently trading options. John’s trading has made a
difference in my success. I have made a profit from trading, but I need to do
better at getting out of a trade when it is losing.
Advice: Use a stop loss. Write down your trading rules and
stick to them.
Please feel free to contact me at anytime by e-mail or phone.
Happy trading…Tim R.
was first introduced to John last March or April of 2005 through
a different company program. I had paid about $3000 for 10
sessions that also included 1 year of on demand access to a
coach when I had question. I also paid
$3000 for four days of one-on-one mentoring by another coach that I
learned from, but not the things that I wanted to learn.
So picking a
coach is an important choice and can pay big time or be a waste
of money! I was so happy with John that when he
discontinued working with TMTT. I re-hired him last
February for 10 more session.
John is very knowledgeable about the market and has a good number of years
of experience trading. As a business major I can tell that
he really understands the nut & bolts of trading. So for
me I have no doubts that John understands the market and the
types of ways a trade can be done.
I was coached my John a couple of years
ago and also did a 10 session with him a year ago.
John is very knowledgeable with the market and trading the
market. He eats and sleeps the market (truly), he reads
and studies the market every day. John produces his income
with the market, so you can see his commitment it extremely
John takes his time to find out where
you are and what you want out of your sessions, then tailor
makes your sessions just for you. He has wonderful
patience and a way about him to make the information
understandable at your level and rate of your growing knowledge.
I have stayed in touch with John and from time to time we talk
over some ideas I have for my own trading, but he lets you make
the choice's for your trades. He gives us some of his
thoughts on the general market and climate of Wall Street which
is very helpful. John does so much more it would take a
long time to go over them. He really does so many little
things and most importantly doesn't leave you hanging at the end of
your sessions. He will be available to you.
John is great and
I don't think you'll find anyone better
to work with. Good Luck !!! Ray M
this note in reference to the support I have received from John
regarding trading. Coaching is an important tool in
learning the trading business and John has always been available
to guide and support me through the sometimes tough learning
process. One can not get all the nuances through books or
in-services. Questions always arise. Good luck in
the future and remember the
discipline that John explains and why it is so
necessary to making money in trading... Marvella M.
I have know John as a trading coach for 2.5 years.
1st in online classes for 2 months then as support for the last
2+ years [instant mess. emails] I found John to be a
excellent teacher his years of experience and ability to deliver
information in a way that can be understood with a nice sense of
humor makes him the greatest tool. He will make you money if you
put in the work and trade your plan.... no question. He is so
much better than the big money trading schools [which I have
done]. The ability to instant message a pro when you first start
out is worth it weight in gold!
JUST DO IT!! Have fun, Jerry
"I am delighted to receive your e-mail. I'll visit your web site
You were a great teacher for me. I learned a lot. January 30 - Feb2, 2006, I'll be in
Idaho... I'd be happy for the opportunity to work under your guidance again...
I thought of you and your family during the storms last fall. I
do hope that you are all safe and well."
"I am just being honest, I do not personally know you but I can easily
spot the people that deserve my admiration, respect
and loyalty. There are not too many, and I am very humble with
you giving me the opportunity to learn from you, even though you
do not need to do that, but if you want to pass on a legacy,
please seriously consider me for that, I will do my best to not
disappoint you because of
my commitment to learn."
"So again, thanks so much for the coaching that I did with you, and if and
when I feel the need for a mentor in the future,
I will certainly call on you.
Joyous and prosperous New Year to you,"
"I want to say that I am absolutely amazed at the information John
Robichaud provided me. John gave me a very solid technical basis
for trading. I don't think there was any other way I could have
gotten so much information in such a short time.
I feel he has provided me a Masters Degree
in Trading. There is no place I could have gotten a comparable
education for any price. I believe I now have the technical
background necessary to trade successfully.
Time will tell."
John coached us several years ago and
we were very pleased with his knowledge and support of us as we
learned to trade the market. Obviously, we still
have contact with him and we are pleased to have the pleasure
of depending on John for advise and answers to our many
questions over the years. We have
found his response time to be immediate and accurate.- M. H.M
have been studying with John Robichaud for about a year now...
Most of it formally through paid sessions and some of it through
the kindness and generosity of his heart by giving me extra
attention through e-mails and instant messaging, but I know that
he makes himself available like this to everyone he coaches.
knew a little about trading when I started and now have a solid
base to practice with and make small trades.
John is a generous, smart and patient coach/teacher. He
teaches this as a serious business and not as a gamble. I
started this as a way to make money and now am also having a ot
of fun with it. I am taking it slow as that is both my
nature and time availability.
am starting to show results in my virtual trading and this past
week in particular.. I have been grasping the realities of small
losses and letting my winners go (DRYS)... I fully expect myself
to be doing this for real money in the near future and be a
success at it.. and when I have my doubts John has been there to
encourage me.. So, check him out, you have nothing to lose and
everything to gain. He is also honest and very fair in his

I received an email
from John Robichaud, my previous trading coach, asking some of
his students to send you a reference. I had John as a coach
about a year and a half ago. He knows the market and in my
opinion is a good coach. His website is extremely useful and I
still use it all the time; especially the routine page.
There is a tremendous amount of
information you can learn just by studying his website. The
problem is what to do with all that information once you learn
it. That's where the coaching comes in. It will give you
direction and the knowledge of what to do next. It's just like
learning anything else. You can read twenty books on how to
build a house but without the actual hands on training you
probably won't get past the foundation. He will show you
how to use the information you learn. Trust me, the stock market
can be confusing and without guidance that confusion multiplies.
If you have the time and the devotion John will show you the
way. I'm still on John's mailing list so I still get valuable
information from him. Before I had John
as a coach, I took some trading class's and I easily paid double
the price for the classes maybe even triple. John is a good
investment if you're serious about trading. Feel free to
email me if you have a question. - Bryan
Dave and I are both
continuing with the "fear and greed" challenges of the
market. I feel we learn more every day . just going through some
of the info that we have from you, and educational websites.
I'm finding trailing stops are an excellent way to
not be tied up emotionally in getting out of a position.
I've especially appreciated them this past week on AAPL as
it had a great run up. Dave is still working and uses them
frequently. Because we're both trading in IRAs we have stuck
pretty much to buying calls and puts, straddles, strangles, and
stocks themselves. We haven't done shorts on anything. ..."
Thanks, Dave and Lynda
I can highly recommend John as a market
coach, He is very good at communicating information to
the beginner to advanced student. His style as a coach is very
refreshing in that he is willing to give his opinion not just
feed you information from a text. Also I find his personality
very enjoyable to spend hours in a phone class, which was big to
me in a 10 to 16 class time frame. Bottom line with John you get
decades of making a living in the market, not talking about it
but doing it, for a steal! He will give
you all the tools to be a successful trader and have fun doing
it. What more do you want? - Jerry S.
I have had the greatest coaching from John Robichaud. He is one of
only two people in the whole world I trust with my computer and
He has given me the necessary tools and direction at a fraction of the
cost that I had spent on other programs. I have gained
far more with John. He is more than just a coach. He
is a caring, feeling person interested in whatever makes me
successful--in trading and as a person. He takes a deep
interest in whatever my needs to help me. He never gets
impatient with my questions and concerns. He takes
whatever time is needed to help me gain what I need to
understand, become confident to trade. He will go as fast or as
slow as I need and John never becomes impatient. His
website is always in process of improving and making more links
to help his students find necessary research at fraction of cost
or free sites.
I have always received what I expected and more, much more...
You have been very patient with any and all questions...
I specially like that you can control my cursor and navigate to
needed web sites rather than wait for me to hunt and peck
for the same web site. The
sessions become very profitable as to time use and content.
The sessions are personable and not
canned. John you keep giving me more and more
insights into to effective trading.
I have spent thousands of dollars in the past to learn to
trade--- BUT I have received more value
and more on going value by times with John than all the other
times put together. I would like to have had some
of that money back and invest in more weekly times with John.
I have had to adapt to a different approach to trading
models or strategies from when I first started. John has helped
me make the change with his hands on approach and personable
I am getting back into the arena as I have a 'good one' to help
me. Thank you.
If I could be honest with you, it's the following that I
am looking to make myself well versed in, OPTIONS Trading and
more emphatically, covered calls
and spreads.... the correct mechanics of actually doing the
trades and to achieve this end: I wish to give whole heartedly
my: energy, time and devotion. Help me to achieve the right
knowledge and direction, a routine that I would be faithful to
and results that will make you proud as my mentor, coach &
As the saying goes :
"When the student is ready, the TEACHER appears."

John: Thanks so much for the info. I learned so much from
you as a trainer / coach and now enjoy receiving the tidbits you
e-mail me. I just wanted to let you
know how much I appreciate what you do." Thanks again!! -
I had been reading about technical analysis and one of the authors had
suggested seeking out a trading coach. Your site came up
in my web search of the term "trading coach". I was
impressed by the site in that it contained so much free
educational information, but I was really more impressed by what
it did not say or promise. I did not want to buy a gimmick
or a "secret".....I wanted to be educated and mentored. I
knew that I wanted a process that could evolve over time, so
that I could explore information and techniques, formulate
questions, test assumptions and have someone to coach me through
that process. Hope this helps, John. (The pet pooch
in the picture didn't hurt, either !) - GW
