I have been listening to the tapes and have read the book
for the 3rd time and love them both. They have given me the
tools that I need to "buy low and sell high" like I have
always been trying to learn how to do. Joe's book is the best
trading book I have ever read and I think his techniques are
the best that exist for the way I like to trade and
substantially reduce risk (and I tell all the traders that I
meet this and give them your web-site). Now I have to
discipline and train myself to professionally understand and
apply Joe's techniques consistently; the effort will be well
Keep up the good work Joe, and thanks for writing a
wonderful and excellent trading book!

Joe's book has lots of excellent strategies. I agree
that it is not easy to apply to real trading at first. After
several months of struggle, I finally decided to trade only
B&B and to master it. Since February this year, I had 17
B&B trades with only 2 losers. My point is, start out with
one or two directional signals. Pick some easy ones like
B&B or DPRO. Study them and master them. Once your
confidence is built up, you can then move on to other
strategies in the book.
Don't give up. Good luck.

I have a question but first...
I want to tell you that I know nothing about trading.
Certainly, not enough to make any reliable judgement about
anyone's methodology. I ordered your book and tapes based on
something that is somewhat intangible. In reading your
interview and in conversation you struck me as very genuine
and honest. Those same qualities were apparent in Neil, as I
spoke with him, prior to
deciding to attend the recent
seminar. He has been very generous and forthcoming with
information, above and beyond what would normally be expected.
These things speak to me more than any benefit I may gain from
studying your techniques. So, I want to give credit where it's
due. I like meeting people like yourselves. I hope there are
more of you out there.
My question is in regards to Forex. As far as I can tell,
the only accurate and reliable way to trade Forex with your
indicators is with CQG, unless you get eSignal to feed
Metastock so Intraday CTP can read those files. I am not
interested, at this time, in intraday trading, just making my
entry intraday once i see support/resistance on a daily
fibnode. If I didn't explain this properly, perhaps you could
just tell me what you have found the best route to be.
Thanks for your patience, time, and efforts.

I have read Trading with DiNapoli levels for the second
time, and I am studying the Trading course. I just wanted to
tell you that your material is the most relevant, realistic
approach to trading the markets that I have encountered, and I
have spent much time and money looking at the works of many.
Earlier in my trading experience I was not ready to
comprehend the Fibonacci and money management concepts you
teach, but as the saying goes "when the student is ready, the
teacher will appear".....
Your method of using Trend analysis (Stochs, MACD, DMA's
and the Detrended oscillator) is simple but brilliant. It very
much agrees with my style of trading. I only wish I had taken
the time and found you 3 years ago for I would have an extra
100k in my personal trading account.
As a money manager using Index mutual funds for my clients
and being limited to end of day daily trading, I have caught
the last couple of moves for a solid gain for my clients in
the NDX using Fib analysis to determine entry and exit.
I know I have much to learn before I come close to
mastering the many techniques in your work, but I now feel so
much more confident making trades with just what I have
learned so far. I look forward to taking a private seminar in
the near future.
I could not be more excited about learning and applying the
methods in your excellent and unsurpassed research and work as
it applies to trading the markets.

A young trader named Karl recently contacted us regarding
learning more about trading fib levels. Karl indicated he has
been trading successfully for about a year and has expressed
great interest in learning more about >using Fibonacci in

I agree with ya there like it's like cheating!!!! )))
What I meant by "self-fulfilling" is that the floor and
major off-floor players know where the key fib levels exist on
most time frames, so, in a sense, the floor and big money move
price to those levels....What's important is what happens next
at those levels...price is either repelled by a fib level
(reversal), or price is repelled and then accelerates through
that level like a knife through hot butter (successful test or
bounce followed by a failure), or price blows through the
level like it doesn't exist (stop run or bid/offer vacuum).
from experience by observing price, you can get a feeling for
what might happen at the fib levels.
Neal Hughes wrote
Some would disagree that fib
analysis is a self-fulfilling prophesy. There are many who
believe that the more a certain technique is used (more
traders using it) the less likely it will work in the markets.
There is a conflict there, a trader can't believe both.

establish a position on a reaction to that trend. This is why,
