Thanks for your quick response. Just to let you know, I
received the book today and was very surprised by your quick
service. I am very please with my overall experience with

I really look forward to

fault or is it the methodology, therefore I can sort the

The rules state that a failure is a very strong Directional
indicator in play and we should ride with it, so I never see
this as a problem. The trading plan is laid out, so I sitck to

Subject: Great Seminar
I just wanted to thank you again for a great seminar. I
really liked your teaching style and learned a lot in the two
days we had. I think the biggest help for me was putting many
of the different components of Joe's book into a coherent
context that I could work from. I just wasn't seeing some of
the system linkages and connections until they were discussed
at the seminar. The material's you presented and the
discussion really helped me see the forest thru the trees. I
understand time frame and direction much better and have made
adjustments in my trading approach to reduce risk and improve
Overall it was a very worthwhile experience and I plan to
do it again in the future.
I've also expanded my application of
LPO's and fibnode retracements and pay much more attention to
thrust. Most important I'm having successful trades with
reasonable expectations and making some money. There's always
more to learn but the opportunity to discuss these techniques
has really cemented things I was doing correctly, and given me
more confidence in applying Fibonacci. Your
comments were invaluable!

to learn yet and are searching for the best teachers out there

Do you know anything about
the other packages/software he (Joe DiNapoli) advertises on
his web site? Have you used his proportional divider?
Response from other member:
I have owned various versions of his
software since the late 1980's. I do own proportional
dividers. In my opinion,
unless you keep hand updated
charts [I do], you probably don't need them. The software,
FibNodes, is really good if
you use fib retracements,
projections and look for the confluences and agreements in
these numbers. The new version
even allows you to connect
it to Signal On-line and have your recent swing prices updated

On-line, though I was given a beta
copy of Signal On-line at about the same time and used both
together for real-time
The older DOS version had some very
nifty market preparations built in that have since disappeared
[but then, most other traders now days have a tool like DT or
GET that allow them to set Oscillator levels and scan, for
instance]. I have the new version on my trading desk, and I
admit I also keep the older version handy as well. This
software fits nicely with my trading tools--and I'd think
traders that use DT or GET and do fib work would find it very
Finally, I'd add that Joe DiNapoli,
Neal Hughes and Tony DiNatale do a great job of teaching and
on the forums there. You can ask a
question, beginning or extremely advanced, and they will
patiently set up charts and projections and retracements, etc.
until you understand. And they constantly put up examples that
are in the current markets that would suit the trading
techniques they are teaching. The FibTrader forum is really a
I don't work for Joe or his firm,

I just read your book (couldn't put it down) in 2 days.
....... I have seen you speak before (but west in
October)................After doing some investigation, I
started to think something was there. Your book was a
pleasure... I read several books per week, and yours was the
first great one I've read in a while..... I'd recommend
this to anyone wanting to learn how to trade.
Honestly, it was the most useful book for someone hoping to
make a living in this game that I've ever seen - in many ways
it's almost complete! Someone probably could read a little on
the basics, pick up your book and make a FULL trading plan,
and then implement what's in there for a successful career.
Congratulations on a gem...
Just a little note to tell you I been thinking of
our class almost constantly............ I am so thankful for
what you have given me. I looked over and rewrote my notes on
the flight home. You opened some windows in my trading
education that would not be opened without you. Some things I
could have done for myself--like drawing the diagrams, etc....
by hand--but I wouldn't have thought to do it. I will now!
Other things, I just simply don't have the background or
expertise to give to them to myself.
Your talent and
ability is something I highly respect and value (I think you
know that)--and, your twinkling eyes, ready laughter, and
thoughtful consideration to each of us made the time just fly
by for me. I'm sure you were tired--but I didn't want either
day to have to end at all. I just loved getting to come to
this. It was worth having waited a year for.

are so many things I want to learn from you! Would you mind to

your files with lineage markings--labeled like you do for the
next day's trades?
I need lots of practice on the Directional Indicators and
Fib Tactics Chapters 14 and 15 are the hardest for me so I
hope you will go over them a little bit. I also need help with
the continuous charts--(I don't have any yet)--and, if I need
the Oscillator Predictor study to use with them, will you
bring one with you for me to purchase when I see you. Thanks!
Your book is not only beautifully written, but the pages
with charts and drawings are so artistically arranged--not all
crowded or cluttered. I have enjoyed just looking at the
pages. I'm so glad you included the Epilogue--I would be
wondering about our friends, H. Hank, C. Carl, and D. Dan.

I have now devoured the D-Levels book, and it finally
dawned on me why you charge $162 for it. The short time I have
been in the Forum has been, and continues to be, a great
learning experience. Now, I want to know what I can do next
(what makes sense?) to further my D-education.
I'm probably too green for a private tutorial, though I
would like to be notified of the next one. I thought the
trading course might be
redundant, but is it? And I know
you have the mini-trading course. Knowing what I've done thus
far, what do you recommend? This approach fully fits my
personality and I can instinctively see the merit in it, so I
want to be as well-educated about it as I can be.
Real trading is essential, and I am now doing that. But
what's the next best step?
