Q: I'm only interested
in trading stocks, but many of the early lessons use futures markets in
chart examples. Is the Course equally effective for trading stocks?
A: The principles in the Course
were developed from a vast database that includes stock data as well as
cash commodity prices and futures markets going as far back to the pre-Civil
War markets of 1816. The Course teaches how to read price action, regardless
of the market you trade.
The only difference between stock and futures
trading is the amount of leverage involved; price analysed using Trend

A: We run SPECIAL
OFFERS on occasion, for info on any current offers email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

that means that the number of students who can take the Course at any

the package with your first two lessons, you received a non-disclosure
agreement for you to sign. You will not be sent any lessons beyond those
first two lessons until our subscription department has received the non-disclosure
agreement with your signature on it. If you have sent back your signed
non-disclosure document, then perhaps you have a credit card problem,
please contact: email@example.com
Q: Can I get a refund?
A: We do not provide refunds for Course lessons. We've gone to great
lengths to provide you with as much information as possible about the
Course online so you can make an informed buying decision beforehand.
Moreover, you can suspend your enrollment at any time, with no financial
obligations to us.
Q: How do I get
help or guidance as I'm taking the Course?
A: The course is subject to a limited-release policy which also means
if we were to train and hire a technical support staff who you could interact
with each student on on a one-to-one basis, the Course would have to be
priced much higher. On the other hand, we've gone to great efforts in
writing the Course to carefully illustrate every point by numerous examples.
The course is detailed and profusely illustrated -- nealry 1000 pages,
500 charts and some 250 illustrations, figures & tables.
With your first two lessons, you receive Your Guide To Mastering Trend
Dynamics, along with a separate tutorial to help clarify how to get
over the most common stumbling block, defining what are called "line changes"
in Trend Dynamics vernacular.
Lastly, after you've completed the 47th
lesson, you're invited to join the online forums where a spirited group
of advanced traders stalking live markets using Trend Dynamics
methods. The forum threads are very difficult to follow if you do not
have a grasp of Lessons 1-47.
Q: Why am I required
to sign a non-disclosure and non-refund agreement after I get the first
A: Many traders use the material in the Course
in their trading business and the non-disclosure agreement helps to minimize
wide distribution of the Course. The non-refund agreement discourages
unscrupulous people from buying parts of the Course with the intention
of copying it and returning it.
Q: Is the Course
availabe in digitzed format like the sample lessons posted online?
A: No, for the same reason as above.
Q: I can't make
up my mind -- this Course is either expensive or an incredible bargain?
A: If you are looking for a mechanical system that requires no effort
and prints money, then this Course is in all likelihood not for you and
too expensive at any price. However, if you think about trading in business
terms, how much might it cost to purchase a business where you have the
opportunity to work out of your home, have low overhead and unlimited
earnings potential, then the Course is an investment. In trading, you
have to earn your way every single day all over again, and there are zero
guarantees whatsoever that you can succeed; but a trading business can
be an ideal business. Like all businesses it too requires an initial start-up
investment in both capital and your time.
The Course is designed to assist traders who aim to make trading a business
and to get there faster -- for such traders the Course
is a nominal investment. For many traders the Course pays for itself in
the first year or two either by sharply reducing losses or by increasing
trading profits. For serious traders-to-be Trend Dynamics is the
best investment you'll ever make in your trading future.
