For a general browse through the list of articles and videos, I recommend the Site Map. Scroll down and you’ll see a list of all articles by title.

For a particular category or topic, click on the appropriate Category or Tag in the right hand side of any of the posts within the YTC Blog.

Or for a more targeted approach, where you search for a particular keyword, you’ll find a search box at the top of the right hand side of any of the posts within the YTC Blog.

To understand the blue and magenta trade markers on the charts, please see the explanation and examples at the following page:

This newsletter uses a double-opt-in subscription process, to ensure that no-one else is entering your details to subscribe you to newsletters you don’t necessarily want. It makes it a little more complicated, but it’s worth the effort to minimise spam.

The process is as follows:

Simply enter your name and email address into the boxes on this webpage –

Or if you prefer you’ll find subscription boxes on the RHS of the homepage and every blog post.

Within a couple of minutes of entering your details you should receive a confirmation email in your inbox. This email contains a confirmation link (just to be sure you want it). Click on this link. Your web browser should then show a confirmation page, confirming that everything has worked. You’ll then receive your welcome email in your inbox.

That’s it. Not too difficult hopefully.

Please don’t email me though asking to be subscribed. I can’t do it. You need to go through this double-opt-in confirmation process. It’s just the way the system works.

At the very bottom of each of the newsletters you’ll find an html link labelled “Change Subscriber Options”. Click on this link and you’ll be taken to a page where you can change your email address. Click on the link ‘edit contact information’ to change your email address.

At the very bottom of each of the newsletters you’ll find an html link labelled “Unsubscribe”. Click on this link and you’ll be taken to a page where you can unsubscribe from the newsletter. Simply check the little round button under the heading ‘Unsubscribed’ and then click save. You should see a confirmation page. (Depending on your browser you may not have to click save – sometimes you get the confirmation automatically).

Please don’t email me – I can’t unsubscribe you. I need you to follow the above procedure (apologies if that’s an inconvenience – it’s just the way the system works). 🙂

Effective 27 August 2012:

(a) All administrative, technical and sales enquiries will be responded to as soon as possible. I aim to respond to these no later than the end of the next business day.

(b) “Free coaching” questions will no longer be answered. However they will be read and may form the basis for a YTC newsletter article if I feel they offer value to the wider YTC community.


For four and a half years now I’ve answered almost every email sent to YTC. While no one person has been abusing the privilege, collectively this has led to a daily email burden that has burnt me out and has stalled any further growth of YTC. This has now reached the point at which it’s unsustainable and the options are to either shut down YTC or halt all free coaching.

This newsletter has been (and will remain) a one-man part-time endeavour. Trading and family time will always remain my priority. But I enjoy writing as well so have allocated two hours a day towards this project.

I choose to spend this time creating new content. Email Q&A benefits only a very small percentage of readers (<1%) but greatly reduces the value I can provide to the 100%.

There is a growing problem on social media of scammers impersonating trading educators and firms and then contacting followers to attempt to scam you out of your money.

Their accounts will usually be copied straight from the original (same profile photo and posts). So they look legitimate. The primary difference is usually a very minor change in the username. Something you won’t notice unless carefully looking for it, such as a slight spelling change or the addition of a character such as a hyphen, underscore, period/full-stop or perhaps a number.

Please note: I will NEVER make unsolicited contact with you via direct message to sell you any product or service. And no other “representative of YourTradingCoach”; will ever contact you to sell you any product or service.

This includes signup for a particular brokerage or managed accounts. And access to exclusive coaching services or groups.

In addition, I will NEVER ask you to pay for anything via transfer of Bitcoin or any other crypto funds.

If you are ever in doubt, contact me directly through proper means such as the contact page on my website so that I can confirm the offer does not come from me.

Please take care online.

And if you come across any of these scammers (whether impersonating me or someone else), please advise the real educator or firm so that they can request their followers report and block the scammer. The more reports they can get, the quicker these scammers are shut down.
