Hello Jason/fellow traders
Have just returned from a p-sem in Bangkok. Wow what an experience. IMO the book can be read as many times as one wants, but it will always be incomplete without one of these seminars. Thanks Joe.
January 31 2008
A quick note to thank you for what I can only describe as the most awesome experience ever. My expectations of both the seminar and of Bangkok have been exceeded beyond what I can describe.
I truly believe that events in our lives happen for a reason. For me the purpose of my visit was at a much deeper level than the attendance of the seminar. They say that when a point of detachment is reached in our lives that the universe begins to respond. Well I can tell you that many things took place this week before, during and after the seminar that were more than mere coincidences. At one point, I felt quite overwhelmed by some of these experiences.
From a trading perspective, you have reinforced all old knowledge and some absolutely dynamite new material. I think your teaching style is brilliant, combining old methods of pen and paper, together with the powerful visualizations and having the ability to probe in to each of our personalities to find both strengths and weaknesses.
Well I could continue, but I'll stop there for now.
Take care for now and thanks once again

I must stress some are better than others and cannot Thank Joe enough for mentioning GFT, they are exceptional as I had the same trade on with them and no issues of exits whatsoever.

M and H great guys speak volumes of the lessons reiterated and learned from the recent p-sem.
Febuary 21 2008
Just wanted to say thanks for providing us a terrific time in Bangkok.
The private seminar ended up satisfying and exceeding my expectations, and
your hospitality was far more than I could deserve.
I will be sending another email with my personal comments of the seminar
that you can freely use if you wish, to show to other clients, why I do
believe it is worth traveling to the other side of the world to receive
your insights of the market.
On the other hand, thanks for giving me the perspective I needed about my
current situation. Working as a programmer and trying to be a trader is
not an easy task, specially because it is more difficult for us to stick
to the plan. Still, I believe there is some chance in this game for me, I
have gone through hard times in my life that required incredible
discipline in order to change my attitude, so this may be a new journey
that requires once again that change in attitude.
Two days after I arrived home, I decided to analise the markets, wait for
good opportunities according to the plan, and buy/sell on retracements. I
opened two short term positions (both in the EUR/USD- the weekly DR LAL
showed still selling opportunities after a small wash and rinse on a
retracement to the .628 level) that went my way with amazing precission to
the XOP,... but after my stop was hit.
After that, I decided to give my plan a thought. I don't plan to use stops
anymore (only disaster stops), and if it goes against me, then get out on
Sorry for the long email, promise next one will be much shorter.
Thanks in advance.

How's things going ? Well I have had a should I say
broadening experience here in Thailand.The trading has
been good to..
The trading is absolutely important to me.
I just want to say thanks for making yourself
Further I am very keen on the advanced seminar and I
think Harry was up for it to. May / June or when you
have a space.
I am heading off to South Africa tomorrow evening and
will stay in touch.
All the best

Sorry for languide
Im Send Thanks for Joe DiNapoli for the best book of the world!
Febuary 26 2008
It took me a while to stop my brain from spinning after attending the most recent Private Seminar. I find it difficult to find appropriate words to describe how grateful I am for the opportunity to learn from you.
In the previous 5 years I have attended a number of trading seminars/courses. Your willingness to share your knowledge and experience in trading various markets is unsurpassed by all other "trading gurus" I have come across in the past. This new understanding of your trading method and market mechanics makes me now look at the market action from entirely new perspective and IT ALL MAKES SENSE and more importantly – IT ALL REALLY WORKS.
Being a former teacher myself I appreciate the challenges of teaching a group of people of different backgrounds and trading experience. Yet you managed to engage all of us equally and we (students) all left with feeling that we gain invaluable insight into the world of trading.
Thank you very, very much.
I look forward to continue improving my trading with your guidance.
With deep appreciation,
March 1 2008
It's been a while since I sent you an email. This time I just could not help it. I just started reading TWDL again (this time I think 9th time) and the more I read it the more I feel like thanking you. It has almost been a year since I came to T land and since than have read and worked with the markets consistently, but nothing comes close to TWDL. I just could not help myself (after finishing Chp. 5) I have to send you this thank you note. Your work is just outstanding.
March 2 2008
Hi Mr DiNapoli,
Your presentation at the ATIC Singapore provided more meat than any other presentation in the ATIC.
Thanks and have a nice day.
March 15 2008
Hi Joe & Pat,
I know you receive compliments like these every day but I just have to tell you:
I haven't had a single losing day for the past 7 days since I started using what you taught in the ATIC & the NUS Guild House sessions.
I'm just a tiny trader - day trading volatile stocks like FSLR, BIDU, PCU, CF - you get the idea....
For the 1st time, I have hope that I can break even after a whole year of losing trades. I tried a lot of things since I started early last year - options (all kinds of spreads), futures, stocks, currencies, trade the news, game earnings etc. and I learnt a lot. But what you taught is the turning point. I'm halfway through the book - glad I bought it because it's really well-written and answered some of the questions that I'd want to ask you anyway e.g. why are you teaching this....
So, I just like to wish both of you a great weekend - hope to see you back in Singapore OR if time/financial constraints permits it, I would like to learn more.
Am very glad you folks came by and that I made the right choice attending the ATIC session!
March 18 2008
Please forgive this intrusion. I have just finished your book Trading with DiNapoli Levels, there are so many helpful hints in your book; instinctively I know this book is going to be at the heart of any trading methods I use.
March 18 2008
Joe, thanks for your time and honesty,
Other than that, thanks for being an inspiration for me since i met you at las vegas last year, i got into deep study of your material since then and find it fascinating, hope to meet you soon again.
March 18 2008
I think the methodology is amazing in how it keeps you from getting into trouble. Please compliment Kevin on his forewarning of a spike in the financial indices as that is precisely what happened on Tuesday.
Thank you for your help and I hope that one day I will be a regular subscriber.
March 20 2008
i would like to thank joe. since i am exercising your methods ( one month), i became more profitable and my confidence improved (still a long way to go...) and i feel that i am on much suitable path for me comparing all the technical non judgemental methods i practice so far. so thanks again- joe..
March 27 2008
Nice meeting both of you in Singapore. I bought your course/book/divider and I am very happy to inform you that my profits have increase.
March 28 2008
As of yesterday Wednesday march 26, there is no definitive pattern developed as of yet (in terms of Elliot Waves) by which we might be able to project a retracement target....
The prevailing question from most everyone i talk to is: how far will wave (2) take us..? The answeris:
I don't know. It all depends on what pattern or patterns develop for wave (2). There are 11 different corrective wave patterns/combinations and it's impossible to know which one will unfold for the the correction.
This is where Joe's System Shines above all other....
His Expansion and retracement targets, directionals and other methods he teaches us are invaluable specially at confusing market junctions such as this one we are presently experiencing; and in my opinion His System is by far at the forefront of any other system (s)i am familiar with....

Thanks very much to strongly highlights a traders mental preparation.Correct attitude to loss.Why we freeze up?This are covered beside the heavy dosage on techniques and Trade Plan.Simple,easy,proven ready made to jump-start novice to seasoned traders.You are fantastic to keep on rolling tonnes of real juices intricate that one can tap from a traders that walk the talk.
Your class was handle in a unique ways that jogged me up to realise where I gone wrong and the solutions at hand to approach.Your guidances was superd.You want the worst in us to be the best.
I advised only those that want to learn correctly from a Master to attend else you will be in for a big surprise.
Tks & appreciate all that you give so willingly without holding back as I see only you have achieve in my 10 years of learning in this trade and for such a wonderful tuition fee.If I had known earlier.
April 5 2008
Thanks for the wonderful workshop! I have been following your methods for almost a year now and I have to say that after attending your workshop, I feel like I'm that much closer to being a seasoned trader. There was obviously many "ah-ha" moments for me, but being able to learn of new things you've added to your trade plan since the book was written was priceless. The most valuable information I got was little distinctions made about certain indicators and directional indicators. To clear my mind of those questions I'm sure is worth its weight in gold! And to top it off, Bangkok is an amazing place...couldn't ask for more!
April 8 2008
In my 15 months experience as a trader biggest problem I faced was nothing to do with trading. You are always get sucked into next best indicator/trading system searching for holy grail. Soon you learn no such thing exists. I was fortunate to meet you as I started trading. Made my share of screw up and finally as I understand the game, I am going back to basics.
I am re-subscribing to CQG with DiNapoli indicators. Their Market Scan can be programmed to identify highly reliable trades based on DiNapoli indicators. After a year in to this and tried many different software, I understand the value of CQG.
Look forward to attending your Advanced P-Sem.
April 22 2008
Gudday Joe & Patty,
A millions thanks for your warm friendly hospitality for the Private seminar. It is fair to say that I've burnt a few million extra neurons since Saturday – and everyone one of them was worth it!.
To say that the small group approach is ideal somehow doesn't do justice how effective this learning method has been. I have only barely got back to my ‘terminal' and I'm keen to see how the improved knowledge can be applied in the ‘Real World'.
Again my sincere thanks to you unselfishly sharing your time and experience with us in a direct and candid manner.
Also I would say that Pat needs an extra special vote of thanks for being so gracious as to allow 6 wild unknown strangers into her home and ensure we are looked after so well.!
& Kind Regards
April 22 2008
Thank you for an exceptional learning experience, I am looking forward to returning once I have fully mastered the two trading patterns that you suggested for me, if you feel the following comment is appropriate feel free to use it.
After having now completing my own private seminar in Bangkok with Joe DiNapoli I can confidently confirm that a private seminar is guaranteed to deliver a quantum improvement to your trading, independent of your current level of ability. It is definitely not for the faint hearted and the confronting style of teaching is ideally suited to those that are absolutely serious about their trading, with the learning experience specifically designed to ensure that you will personally never forget the critical components of each and every concept discussed.
Best Regards and many thanks
April 23 2008
If you are considering traveling to Bangkok for a private seminar with Joe,
I'd imagine that like me, its because you've already spent some time
implementing and trading with the techniques described in Joes Book, and
most likely are using one of the recommended software packages with the
Dinapoli tools built in. If your experience is anything like mine prior to
the seminar, you have probably already noticed that since doing this, your
trading has already improved however there are just some things that you
know could be better.
I made the decision to attend the private seminar not because I was
expecting a miracle, but because I had met Joe some 6 months earlier at a 2
hour introductory Seminar in Sydney, and for the first time in about 5
years, I saw a speaker that was not talking down to the audience, not trying
to pump a million people through some sort of overpriced automatic trading
system, but someone who was speaking a lot of sense, and who it was very
clear had spent a lot of time trading, and really thinking about what he was
doing. It resonated in a way that could be best described as gut instinct,
but a short time after this, once I had read his book, it was clear that I
had not only found a way of trading that agreed with my thinking, but more
importantly a teacher that was willing to teach, approachable, and no doubt
great at what he does.
The Seminar was everything I had expected, and no matter how good you think
you are at using these methods, I can guarantee what you will learn in the
private seminar will go far beyond what you were expecting, if that's what
you are looking for.
Whatever you do, if you are flying to Bangkok for the seminar make sure you
pencil in at least a week to checkout some of the most amazing tropical
islands in the world which can all be reached for less that $100 domestic
flight from Bangkok.
April 23 2008
Thanks for accommodating us at your home. Also thanking Pat for having us
Seminar was great. What I enjoyed most was the absolute relevance of what
you teach to what we do. There is absolutely no "iffie" stuff. I also value
your interaction with the group as opposed to a one directional learning or
teaching experience. Time flew with that.
I want to return for the advanced seminar not too long from now if I could.
Bangkok is an amazing place. People , systems, choices of consumer goods ,
just good stuff. Our hotel was good , absolutely nothing wrong nowhere. We
could have made our turnaround a little bit longer due to our time zone
thing, but that is our stuff.
Thanks Joe, and keep well.
April 24 2008
I would like to start by saying how you have opened my eyes to trading, your approach to teaching , or conveying your knowledge is not a sugar coated pill but the way it is......... I appreciated that very much........
You have answered so many questions..... And you have explained so many techniques that make sense.....
I will differently be coming back to Bangkok to sit with you again and listen and learn..........
Joe without sounding as though I am blowing it out your arse what you have shown and taught me over this last weekend cannot be just taught in some classroom with electronic software for a dispay.
Bangkok is an amazing city and you need to take a few days after your course to enjoy the sights, sounds and lights that are Bangkok.
Again many thanks mate..........!!!!!!!!!!!!!
May 4 2008
Thank you once again for a great P-seminar, it helped me greatly in consolidating what I have learned about your trading methodology. I believe it is the only methodology that explains how liquid markets work and also how to interract with them. Many thanks for the continual education. I would really look forward to an Advanced P-Seminar, when you think I am ready
My best wishes
May 11 2008
Thank you for an enriching and interesting seminar in May 08. You have been very generous in departing your profound knowledge to all of us. You took great pains to ensure that all of us understand the concepts and in my opinion you are a great teacher. I have had many of doubts cleared and now have a much greater understanding of the materials covered in your TWDL. I am eager to go back and try out my newfound knowledge and look forward to attend more of your future seminars. A very big thank you once again.
May 20 2008
Dear all DiNapoli Experts, thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. I am just starting out in Joe Dinapoli's fibonacci work and just wanted to thank Joe for all the great knowledge and experience imparted to everyone. Without your wisdom and knowledge, I guess many of us such as myself would still be stuck in the "desert" looking for the right system to trade on.
I look forward to hearing from everyone their advice.Thank you so much for your help guys!

I was fortunate to find a used SIGNED copy of Mr. DiNapoli's book on Amazon
from a little store in California about six months ago. Great book!
June 16 2008

3rd Quarter - 2008
July 2 2008
It's been a while since last time I talk to you. Hope everything is going ok in Bangkok and with your incredible travels around the world. Just wanted to drop a few lines to let you know how I'm doing at trading.
I think the last four months since I came back from the private seminar have been great. I've been reading your forum and having a lot of fun trading.
During the first two months I opened an approx. total of 20 trades, (18 winners, 2 lossers) making approx 40% on my small trading account. I traded the B&B and DR in short timeframes(30 mins charts) ,making of course a previous analysis of the higher timeframes.
After this personal record, I became overconfident and started to feel that trading was "easy". (The biggest mistake I have ever made at trading). I let my guard down in the next position, so I went straight away to a 30 min chart where I saw a nice B&B pattern. I opened a highly leveraged trade with not even a mental stop predefined, and the price started to go against me. Instead of closing it immediately, I averaged down "hoping" for the price to go my way. When I decided to close the position, I realized I had lost almost everything I made in the previous two months. It was after this big mistake that I then realized that there was a huge daily B&B going against my 30 min B&B. In other words, instead of a good buy order, it was a even better sell order.
Was a little bit affected after this but decided to take it as a very good learning experience. After this happened, decided to take one week off from trading. I have now much more sense of the respect that this business deserves.
When I came back to work, I restablished the trading plan so as to continue doing the same things I was doing during the winners. I am now trading 4 days a week religiously since one month ago, from 8 pm to 12:30 am Australian time, after my day job. My main timeframe focus is on the 5 min and 30 min charts on the Euro, USD, CHF, JPY and AUD related currency pairs. Would like to trade other timeframes, but my psychology doesn't allow me to sleep at night while having trades open, and because my account is not that big enough... yet :)
My plan, is to be an independent professional trader very soon. I set myself a 12 months goal, and at the end of this period, depeding on my performance I may go full time trading.
Joe, is trading 5 min and 30 min charts the way to go as a pro trader? Or are the probabilities of success and longevity better when trading longer term charts?
Have a great day and hope to have the chance soon to go to one advanced seminar.
July 2 2008
Thanks for your mail Joe.
I greatly appreciate it.
Have become a regular reader of the forums.There is a wealth of info in there.
July 15 2008
If you require any other information please indiate. I would
appreciate an email of confirmation.
I would also like you to pass on to Joe my sincere thanks for
sharing his approach. Its really made a difference to me. Before
I was just holding my own, (after a few years of costly errors) but
now im taking regular profits out of the market.
Thanks a million!
August 3 2008
When I came to PSEM, I was the only one with out any prior trading
experience. Other ranged from from Minimum of 5 to 25+. I really did
not understand every thing you talked about in the PSEM. After a year
living through this I am beginning to understand.
As I made many mistakes (Dumb Ass Retail - DAR) only thing kept me alive
was your valuable advice during the Boys Night Out "Do Not Trade Size".
Also I copied your home study course into iPOD shuffle and started
listening during my weekend hikes. Probably more than 50 times.
If you remember right after China stock market crash in Feb 22 '07, you
wrote a email about explaining computer failures, program selling/buying
etc. and why pro's such as yourself could not buy. Once again I did not
understand your email. I started resraching and found
www.programtrading.com. As your student Merrick states in the DVD, he
is learning from you and Elliot, I have become life long student of you
and Hank from programtrading. Every year I plan to attend Advance Psem
and Advance Sem by Hank.
Look forward to the Seminar and meeting you.
August 4 2008
As requested, below are some of my thoughts on the Advanced Private Seminar:
This Advanced P-Seminar lived up to all my expectations. All five participants being dedicated, active and focused traders made this experience very rewarding. We socialised together outside the classroom setting and developed a strong bond of friendship that I will treasure forever. The other traders were very gracious to help share their deep knowledge and help clarify points that had confused me for some time. The confidence and motivation I have gained from this seminar is priceless.
I also feel very blessed to have sat with Joe in live trading sessions and get an insight into how he actually trades in real time. The swiftness of his decision making stood out and his reading of the market action so accurately using all the tools he has shared with us inspired me the most. Joe is such a natural and good natured person with no pretence or arrogance. His attitude of wanting to help my evolution as a trader is very much appreciated.
I look forward to attending another Advanced Seminar once I have consolidated the knowledge gained so far.
With much gratitude and appreciation.
August 4 2008
Hi, hope you are doing well, I would love to come if I could, however I am really enjoying and reaping benefits from applying what I have already learnt from you, in fact I am full time intra day now and have quit my other IT job.
Now I love waking up without an alarm clock. When I went full time I had some trouble with consistency in applying the same techniques over and over, however this has improved over time and I am much more relaxed in my approach.
I spoke to H recently since he's come back from Bangkok. We would both love to be involved for a advanced seminar together, at a future date most likely next year and will let you know in due course so we can fit around your schedule.
Thanks for letting me know and inviting me at short notice.
August 4 2008
Where do I begin Joe. With regards to the seminar -- of course there was never any doubt. What you have added to the trading is priceless. Thank you so much for that. I will now slowly try to bring some of these great techniques into my trading.
The 'elephant in the room' for me Joe was the experience and by that I mean being around such wonderful people. I cannot begin to tell you what this means to me. You see the way I see it, is like this. If I had attended the seminar to learn solely how to trade -- this would have been hugely incomplete. Sitting around like minded individuals and sharing ideas and thoughts is what I find most rewarding and satisfying. If one is receptive enough in this kind of environment, what can trigger at a subconscious level can be truly remarkable. I had countless experiences to this effect during my stay.
Thank you again my friend and take care for now
August 5 2008
Thanks for having us there at your new condo. Really a huge improvement on the old one. Regarding the seminar, it was what I expected. As you say, maybe the advanced status of the group helped a lot. To me, I was very glad and relieved that my thinking was not too far from yours, but your interaction between different time frames to help finessing your entry or exit or staying in or out the market for that matter, was the fart in the church for me!!
Although it is still relatively difficult for me to see how exactly I must apply all of this on higher timeframe trades, i.e. (what is the lowest timeframe to watch, like in your case the 1 minute), the concepts learned are priceless. If the "market moving trend" is the 20min on your timeframe trading, I expect the 60min should be the one on my timeframe trading. But I have to do a lot more research I guess. also, I did not pay too much attention to old nodes and D-levels, which I will do from now on. How lower timeframes react when higher timeframes signal something, is a valuable concept that I have learnt from you, but more so, seeing you applying it. DOM also opened a lot of new insight in the market to me, although it can be very dangerous in an illiquid market.
I think the best would be to trade according to what I have learnt and come back in 18-24months for another adv p-sem. It helped to stay away and trade for 18months after my first seminar. This I would suggest to all attendees and the following.
1. Read and Study the TWDL at least 2-3 times
2. Trade, real time with real money for at least 2 years and be active on the forums.
3. Private Seminar.
4. Trade real time with real money for at least 18months
5. Adv P-sem.
6. Trade real time with real money for at least 18months.
7. And so on.........
You do get faster learners, but I would honestly suggest the above schedule. It worked for me.
August 5 2008
The seminar was very enriching in both solidifying my knowledge but very importantly clarifying and improving in the actual practical application of the approach , trade by trade.Further I found the group discussions on matters surrounding trading ,invaluable .These matters are often overlooked and in my view frequently the difference between success and frustration.
Thank you for the seminar.
August 7 2008
Youre the best!!!! Thanks for your time and effort, you really have passion for what you do!
August 10 2008
Just a few quick words to sum up the advanced P-sem.
I've been using your tools now since about January, and full time trading for about 2 years, so in the scheme of things I am relatively new to your techniques. That being said, I have been using them pretty heavily compared to most people in the last few months, and I am continually amazed at what is possible to be achieved when using them correctly.
The synergy of the group was really something special, it was a very intellectual group, without too much ego getting in the way of a good time. Seeing you in action, and some of the other guys was very confirming for me, seeing the speed and level of organization with which markets were analyzed but also seeing the level of confidence with which the tools were applied gave me something to aspire to. It was a real privilege to be in the realm of real traders with more experience than myself.
The markets were also a delight providing some amazing realtime trading setups. It's one thing to look back at charts after the fact and put your tools on them and go wow.. but doing it in realtime is how you make the $$. As a group we nailed some great trades, can't stress enough how that has helped.
Some specific technical stuff I picked up which I have not been doing optimally is managing the trade once in it. I also really gained some clarity around dynamic pressure, particularly when applied across multiple timeframes, and using lower timeframes to position yourself with the higher timeframe trend.
This seminar was an order of magnitude more powerful than anything I have done in the world of trading, thanks a million!

We have been trading gold futures on a very short term basis and doing very
well. Using your knowledge we are reading the moves accurately so we have
been safe not to be on the wrong side. Although I have been a gold bull
since 2001 I know that corrections are savage and rapid and do trade it both
Thanks so much for everything. You are truly inspiring and your caring and
love are treasured.

I found Kevins newsletter to be
excellent, and really helped me put things into context.
I learned a lot and it was well worth the subscription price.
August 15 2008
I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your teaching and the easy manner you use to get your message across. I look forward to meeting with you again next year and wish you well.

Hello Joe DiNApoli and all the experts. My name is A, I am new at the forum, I read your book and have taken a 1 on 1 advance course with Dereck Ching. He has trained me wonderfully and I am now at the stage of "seat time" recognizing patterns and forecasting entries. Stablishing money managment.
Also, I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for sharing your knowledge, I look forward to meet you in person and to participate in an advance seminar with you.
August 25 2008
I'm back in Switzerland , its already getting chilly again.
I Just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity that we could learn from you. I really learned a lot. Thank you for taking the time and effort to teach us a little bit of what you know. It added a lot of value to my way of thinking about, looking at and interpreting the markets.
I really appreciate it,
All the best of luck with your trading,
Adjust 27 2008
We are back home in fair shape. Thanks for sharing your experience and
insight with us during the seminar. I think it is priceless.
I never had a teacher like you and you have incredible talent and I consider
my very fortunate to learn from you.
August 29 2008
You have given so much to so many. You have lifetimes of good karma to keep you prosperous and nourished on all levels: physical, mental and spiritual.
You excel on all levels. It is a great good fortune that I believe I can call you a friend.

The Dow Comparative is the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) Sensex here and the other index heavily traded here is the National Stock Exchange Index (NSE) known as Nifty. Also traded in Singapore as SGX Nifty.
Any particular reason or attributes you have found in Indians to say that nationality wise Indians are best Profile for Trading success?
Over the Last 4 years since I began trading seriously, I sincerely have found your work to be the most practical. I was and always am hungry for knowledge and it fascinates me how actually it's the simplicity that gets us the money. Over time I have reduced a lot of stuff from my trading plan. At the core of my trading plan is always your system of trading. I will surely post my views and D-Levels on Indian Markets, from time to time. In fact I owe quite a bit of my success in trading to you.
I agree on India and China being 2 great Markets for the future. Our markets are also in the process of getting more mature as time goes by.
As to being stuck by any belief, I totally agree with you on this too. In fact, I think that a professional trader needs to be flexible enough to change is view once the markets tell him other wise. Very much akin to what you had mentioned in the course-" The Trade you are very very sure of....BE CAREFUL". This alone was such an insight I can't thank you enough for the same.
September 8 2008
In preparation for the Adv. P-Sem, I just finished chapters 8-13 of TWDL (I have lost the count by now) but your work becomes more important the more I read it and it still amazes me.
Just though I should share this....

Thank you once again for your invitation to the advance seminar. I will like to think that having planned the session on the day of Fed meeting would have set us up for an exciting day, with or without the AIG incident.
This experience would mark a major milestone in my trading journey, as it has significant impact on me. Many concepts were crystalized, as you showed us how you trade, live, on a volatile trading period. The experience has given me the much needed conviction to go all the way and do what it takes to strive towards my dream of becoming a consistent trader.
From the heart, I want to thank you for your selfless sharing, and mentoring, to someone as average as me, not disqualifying me, teaching me on the basis of just my desire.
It was really my good fortune to have met you two years ago, and coming on this remarkable journey of trading, learning and mentorship, without which, I would never have come this far, and my dream would have faded by now... due to a lack of capital, support and a negative environment.
After the advance seminar, I really can see the funnel's opening. And I can sense that the much awaited breakthrough in my trading and life is near. I thank you for providing the road map, which you have taken years to develop and generously shared, your interest in bringing me to BKK for the advance, and your belief in me. Without which, I will have no chance at all in succeeding in the financial markets, which I have pinned my life's hope in.
I can't tell you how appreciative I am, for your genuine sharing and mentorship to an aspiring trader.
The advance seminar is recommended for every aspiring trader that truely has the heart to succeed.
The intense education and learnings is out of this world. Joe's motivations for conducting such an event is really nothing less than charity out of a willingness to help the genuine among the 99% move to the 1%.
I hope to repay your time and effort expediated on me, by my eventual success in trading moving forward.
Thanks and Best Regards,

Very valuable lessons learned Joe. Thanks for making me think like a pro. Look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas.

This was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had in my life. I couldn't write to you before since I didn't have Internet connection during the weekend (Joe, it not only happens in Bangkok!).
I am at work now, and will be writing a better email later during the day, but what I have is a great feeling of thankfulness.
Thank you Joe for this incredible seminar and for giving us the chance to be there!
Thank you D, and guys! As Joe said, having such knowledgeable people in the seminar made it a worthwhile experience.

Thank you for your faith.
The Financial Markets is my Passion. I tried doing other things, but they do not interest or satisfy me in the way being involved in the financial markets does.
The only problem is that I am not making money from it, consistentl, and thus have to do other things..
Your teaching gives me a good chance to be successful, and thus live a fruitful and fuilfilling life.
You have effectively gave us e map, allowing for an enjoyable journey with a fairy tale ending at sight.
For that, I thank you in advance, for your generousity and goodwill.

volatility give opportunities so I enjoy.
Regards en keep well

Had been trading B&B and Scalp O Rama. They worked beautifully. Finally understood booking small profits as being key, and everything that you have taught me, tradeplan, psychology, approach, money management, gambling theory etc, finally looks to be coming together.
Really want to thank you for your mentoring and teaching, as I really see the end of the tunnel. The B&B trade alone will buy my freedom… = )
Once again, thank you… for giving me this chance to succeed.

Might it be possible to sample Joe's Forum?? I understand from the website that a limited period evaluation might be available for past purchases.
In summary, I subscribe to Joe's indicators on both GFTForex and MFGlobal TNG platforms, purchase of Trade Navigator Gold (CTP), purchase of Joe's Home Study Course and most recently attended the Private Seminar which Kevin Riordan gave in Chicago September 26th & 27th.
BTW, Kevin did a superb job in representing "Trading with DiNapoli Levels" at that private seminar. He is an excellent instructor that without question has a demonstrated mastery of Joe's methodology. Daniel and Erin complete the team with service and support second to none in the industry. It has been a delightful experience to work with such competent people. Joe couldn't have made a better choice.
Kindly relay my comments to Joe.
Thanks & regards,
October 7 2008
With your mentorship, surviving and making money too.

Guys, this stuff works like magic! Its scary...
Scalp O Rama off Daily OP, followed by a 3min B&B Sell... I mean wow...

Its A R, G and T son, I was at your private seminar earlier this year in Thailand. I hope you have been well and that you got a chance to crack open that bottle of red Penfolds,Trading has been GREAT for me, especially in these times. I stick to my trading plan and have kept a trading journal so I know where I can improve, where I went wrong or events I notice that occur with that market in that specific time frame. I was able to bring that loss down to 6%, a big learning step, but to be honest I think besides your private seminar that's also one of the best things to happen in my trading career. I learnt a lot about myself when I was reflecting from my trade journal to where I went wrong. I stopped trading cooled my head off and traded demo for 2 weeks, hit your books and DVD's again and read Napoleon Hill's ‘Think and Grow Rich' book to get my head straight, and have now gone back to trading a much stronger trader . Your saying that we are only one trade away from humility holds so true to me now that I also have that posted on top of my computer so I can see it. Luckily for me I am still only trading the smallest amount possible so my baptism of fire was not a ridiculous amount to loose.
I found out your coming to Sydney again for the Trading and Investment Expo, I will pop in to say hello but I don't think I'll go to the seminars as I'm saving up for another private seminar.

Hi Joe and Pat,
You know in Indian Mythology it is embedded that if a teacher asks for your head in return for the knowledge he imparted, you do not question, just give it.
Actually a poor student who could not pay the fees for the teacher learnt archery by keeping the teacher's/Mentor's photograph as inspiration and practised and learnt so well that he almost equalled the master. The master upon knowing got angry and asked for his student?s thumb (The most important tool in Archery) and the student gave it smilingly and could not practice archery ever after. In our country a teacher is equalled with God and Mother.
So high I hold you in my thoughts that it is almost difficult to explain.
I am greatly thankful to you and Pat for making it so hospitable and indeed an experience fun filled and pleasurable.
The seminar was extremely helpful and many a times I felt challenged. The hands on approach and the patience you have while interacting with your students makes it very comfortable for newbies and takes the pressure off. I do not know of any other method/approach so analytical and number based as Dinapoli method, more specifically if one wants to practice day trading or short term trading than this is what works, needless to say that it of course works equally well on longer timeframes.
Your seminar engages/pushes everyone and brings oneself face to face with the realities of the markets. It is a must for serious a trader and I highly recommend this.
Thank You Joe for the teachings and Thanks Pat for the hospitality and good times we had.
Warm Regards and Best Wishes

For me your seminar was a very pleasant experience.
I have attended seminars in Expo Halls, 5 star hotels etc. however to study and learn in your apartment was quite unique in the sense that there was personal touch.
Learning wasn't limited to a one way process. Your seminar was quite inter-active and your teaching method was really appreciative.
I had bought your book on D-levels about a year back and went through it without realizing the effectiveness of your tools. That time I thought it was just one of those books but after
attending your private seminar I have been quite impressed by the uniqueness of your tools. If Fibonacci is a Golden Crown of tech. analysis then your D - levels are the studded diamonds in the crown.
Fib-levels are like single pieces of papers trying to resist and hold the heavy metal ball from falling down ( and vice versa). When there is a confluence of Fib-nodes its like pieces of papers collectively preventing the metal ball from falling downwards.
I do hope that I shall have the opportunity to interact with you often .
My regards to PAT also.

I have read TWDL a few times and started applying the techniques. The forum is a treasure. I visited the forum constantly. All these helped me to understand the Joe's technique. It is nothing comparable to having opportunities to talk to the master face to face.
This was my second private seminar. My first private seminar was two year ago. I wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed the seminar. Joe, you are a great mentor, and smartest man I know in the trading world. You have abundance of trading experiences. You are the one I am looking for and learn from you. In the second private seminar, Joe covered some new strategies, which were not covered in the first Private seminar. Joe explained and clarified issues raised by attendees without reserve; I don't feel it was waste of time to attend the private seminar again. It provided me opportunities to update myself and learn new strategies from Joe. I have gone through a long way and finally realized that Joe's method is the best for me. Today I only use Joe's method for my trading. Anyone will find that it is fruitful to attend private seminar again.

Just a quick note to let you know I have arrived back home safely, and I am now looking at my charts to put into practice what I have learnt.
Thank you for a great seminar, I feel very encouraged thta I am on the right track and have learnt some new techniques that should improve my trading.
All going well I should see you and Pat at the private seminar in January.
October 13 2008
Thanks for your mail, I played the stretch on friday and markets went up around 7% today.Made some money....
I owe it to you..
October 16 2008
Have been doing GREAT trades on the Dow recently :) very happy! Like you
said in the forums, its the traders Olympics, I'm starting to really fine
tune my entry techniques but like you said I have had to be aggressive on a
few entries. Its tough work I don't know how you do it,
luckily I now don't think I'm invincible and I don't let the winning trade
get to my head...not too much anyway ;)
I'd love to come back for a p-seminar, I am hoping to fine turn my trading,
and come to an advanced p-sem, so when I am at that stage I will come back.
As I document all trades, I am seeing better improvement. So at the moment
I am going over more of the things you spent on the 2nd day of the standard
p-sem, more in the fact of actual live trading application what I have
learnt putting into practice. I have set myself a goal for next year for an
I have 'taught' you methodology to 3 people, I use the world taught very
loosely. I did this to make sure that a complete novice understood what I
was doing and in doing so I was also teaching myself. They all understood
how I traded, unfortunately 2 thought it was too much work and effort and
stuck to their trading -(or lack of)- plan, and they have now lost their
entire accounts, I am bringing the 3rd guy with me when your in Sydney. So I
will take him to your free seminar and I told him if he likes it to buy your
book and the seminars you do down here
I will come on Friday, and my parents will come to see you on Saturday, they
are also bringing people along.
Take care & I'll see you in Sydney
October 17 2008
Thanks Joe -- I recently read something you wrote in the special articles section of the forum which struck a chord --
"You need to be able to settle the mind and
avoid all that frenetic activity. The graveyard of past
traders is littered with those who couldn't get the needle
out of their arms. Markets can destroy you emotionally,
physically and financially. You must keep perspective."
Take care my friend
October 20 2008
Thanks for such an encouraging mail.I would try my best to live upto your expectations.
I have been playing scalp O Rama and making decent money.
I Owe it to you.
Thanks once again..
October 23 2008
I am finally making $$$$... after trying vigorously applying your methods and deciphering context.
1) Standard tradeplan : 60min & 30min in agreement, 5min entry
2) 3 & 5 min B&B trades
3) Scalp O rama
On average, ending each day positive since last Thursday, by just sticking to the tradeplan, after defining it in detail, and reducing stress by cutting size.
Still a lot to improve, about 60% winners. Still making mistakes ( esp in trend trades,sorting this out ), but the journals are helping a lot.
Thank you so much for your sharing… and your willingness to teach.
Your mentorship has given a ray of hope to my future… I can start to envisage e trading career that I was only dreaming off since we met 2 yrs ago… now actually start actualizing it.
I am indebted to you kindness…

In consultation with V I played the Scalp O Rama Trade on the Indian Index. Though it was an overnight Trade but the returns were as high as 45% of the Capital.

Well during seminar your tools were all Greek to me.
However, after returning from Seminar I read your book twice and then started trading using CQG and Next View.
Intra-day trading using your tools has given me very good results.
November 23 2008
Been enjoying the markets thanks to your methods.
December 22 2008
CQG say they'll have me up and running today sometime- then the serious
learning of the software can begin... Danielle I fantastic - super
helpful and professional - I'm seriously impressed - and it takes a fair
bit to impress me in this way - most people I deal with have little
understanding of a 'True professional Relationship' between client and
company. Never ceases to amaze me how customers are treated as the enemy
or at least a nuisance, these people simply don't 'GET' that the
customer is the very reason THEY exist.
I use the likeness when I'm training people here of treating your
customer as you would your lover- treat'em well and you'll 'get a lot',
treat'em badly and your on the couch.... which would YOU prefer.?
I'm really looking forward to the A Psem in Feb to 'get my head right'.
Kind regards to you and Pat,
December 22 2008
I have had a copy of Mr DiNapoli's book for many years and it has helped a great deal! :)
I have just heard about the new "scalp-o-rama" method and was wondering if it is available in a book/DVD format?
Many thanks for your time and have a great Christmas.
