I think this book will help traders increase their success if they keep an open mind. That ST that Snellgrove talks about is unbelievable and it has improved my trading by over 200% in the last 3 months. I called him and he was very receptive to answering my questions and even gave me some examples to follow. I Cant thank him enough.
I recommend this book to anyone who is not doing well with their trading. I cannot believe that I am actually doing string trading. I am up to over 120 trades in a row without a loss. I have not taken his course yet but plan to very soon. I have to admit I was influenced by some negatives but I found out the truth for myself and it is all good news. Thank you Don Snellgrove for your book. The proof is in the book and the two main trades I found there set me straight. It has really helped. Thank you
I have just completed the course that this book refers to. I also read the seriously negative reviews on Don Snellgrove that have been reconstituted on a number of related sites on the Web.
All I can say without wasting time addressing the issues of slander, extortion and the necessity for the author of these sites to be expatriate, is that the reviewers on these sites cannot have done the course as they claim. The river channel for example is not simply an MA cross, neither is the ROI a MACD. The trades that are alluded to in the book (the ST, level 1 and 2 S90 for example) have greater strength as entry/target levels when certain ROI and River X confirmations align. Anyone who has done the course alluded to knows the power of confirmation to a trade that the CFG methodology provides. I have personally seen my mentor’s trading account which by the way is an integral part of the course and provides integrity to the teaching – and if 200 pips per day is bad then I guess he’s doing bad.
Prior to the course I studied the S90 applications as I had interpreted them incorrectly from the book. This misinterpretation was quickly corrected. They are in fact far more powerful than I had interpreted. But the last two levels are amazing.
I told my mentor that If I had known the course content prior to taking it I would have paid more than it’s price for the first day.
It is simply awesome. Do not be put off by negative comments by people who either listen to them without checking their validity as I had and particularly those who have obviously (to me at least) no idea what Don is talking about here.
It is all about what is influencing the thinking and how fear and ignorance can destroy people’s window of opportunity.
I began a demo account in Feb of 2010. After 2 months of instruction and trading I felt confident enough to open a live account. Currently, I have cleared in profit over 8,000 using Don’s methods in the last 3 months. I also subscribe to SmartCharts. The book IS a challenging read, but totally accurate in it’s methodology. IF you have the patience and the desire, this book can unlock a deeper understanding of the Forex market. His method is described in detail. His methods are then further demonstrated in the format of a proprietary charting package called SmartCharts. I have contacted the ForexGoldMarkets company on many occasions to have these methods further explained when necessary. The staff is helpful and quick to respond. They hold webinars every month to help assist anyone needing additional instruction. Granted, this is a small company but herald a cohesive and fantastic system. Kinda reminds me of Apple so long ago. If you want the best, be different than the other 90% that fail at forex and get the best information out there. You can succeed! If I can do it, I think anybody can.
I bought this book 2-3 months ago. I read it then. I was a bit overwhelmed with all that was going on in the book. After a couple more months of live trading, my understanding is improving quite well. I reread the book last week, and picked up on more that I had not fully grasped. WOW ! I consistently mark the S-90s on the weekly, 4 hour, and 2 hour compressions (GBP$ only). I started the 30 minutes, but let that slip away. Working on catching up on that after I’ve seen these levels produce over and over again. No, the S-90s are not 100% right, but every time I can get an indicator to provide some target or confirmation of a trade – I’m all over it!!! Yes, I use Smart Charts that Don talks about, but this S-90 methodoly can be implemented on any charting service. Don has REAL FOREX TRADING EXPERIENCE. His other thoughts and ideas (STs, Trend Lines, Retracing, Holes in the market, Cost Averaging, etc) throughout this book was well worth the money and my time to read and reread this book. Don also noted up front in the book – if you are a successful trader, maybe you don’t need this book – why change what your doing? I’m learning. I’ve been in the market for 5 months and am looking forward to making this happen! Thanks, Don.
Don Snellgrove is by far the most committed educator I have encountered in any form of business/professional training. His deep understanding of the Forex market is often missed because of his ability to simplify information for the beginning student. For anyone who has wasted their time with writers who can’t back up their theories, Don’s information is incredibly valuable.
I have spent my fair share of money on trainings and books and courses etc… Don Snellgrove is by far the most sincere, caring, intelligent and honest mentor I have come in contact with. What you learn from Don is how to think like a trader which allows you to become a trader. This book is not a get rich quick method, but if you want to become a student of the market this book will be in invaluable part of your arsenal. If you want to know how to determine where the market is headed you need to learn about the S90 Crossover that is explained in “Selective Forex Trading.” Do you get out of trades too early just to see them move a lot more in the same direction? Would you like to know where the market is more likely to go? Then read this book. I took the course from Don and am so glad that I did. It is changing my life and it will change yours too.
I Highly recommend this book for all forex traders. When you understand why the markets move to certain points and by they bounce off others, it is almost hard not to make any money.
After I purchased the book, Don himself actually helped me to fully understand what I was reading. Currently I am 38 trades in a row with NO LOSS on a LIVE account!!
Don as a teacher has gone over and above what I ever expected he would teach me and I am grateful of his time and energy. Seek out Don and learn from him. I know my life has changed because of it.
THANK YOU DON!!!!!!
