The following user says Thank You to capsmart for this post: Hi, I have given my opinion in another thread , so it is logical that I repeat here. I personally think that PATs Trading is serious. In my view, he is not really a "vendor". After having watched a few free videos, all the setups are clear, and I think that he knows it very well. He has apparently even tried to discourage a futures.
I have bought the book. Not because I felt a need to better understand the methods after having watched the videos. But more to thank him for what I have learnt while watching the free videos.
The book is well presented and is a convenient reference material and "package" for the method. It also goes deeper in the rationale behind the setups. What I appreciate with him is that he shows the implementation of his method every day for free. I have often been frustrated with some other "masters" not necessarily vendors when they do not show the implementation of their methods on, let's say, a whole week. Showing on a whole week even with hindsight allows a much better understanding of the method.
How many setups per day in average? In which market conditions? Is it possible to have a full day with no setup? PATs is not afraid to do so. Once more, for free. I would recommend the watching of his free videos to a beginner in price action. Or to some one who has finished to read Al Brooks and does not manage to implement it.
It was my case. After having worked a lot on Al Brooks' book, I was disappointed to see that the current charts were not looking as in the book. PATs method seems derived from Brooks , but it is simpler, it is clear, and he implements it every day on ES.
Would you be profitable with this method?
As for all methods, nobody can tell. But the Youtube videos are worth having a look imo. At least for education on price action if needed.

Fully illustrated with charts taken from a live trading screen and displayed in exactly the way you would have seen them for yourself. It is not for everyone. How the book is structured The seasoned trader will probably start by skip reading. Certainly I hope that any raw recruit would find it an easy read. I hope you will find that the methodology is pretty straightforward. Those who already day trade in discretionary fashion will hopefully gain pointers here and there and find.
It is not easy. Glossary To keep the narrative flowing.

Those who come to this book with little or no experience will gain from their lack of preconception. The other attractions. After that. Using the price action itself. It has to be said that there is nothing amazing or wonderful in learning to read the tape — for that.

Preface What the book covers This book is about day trading. This means that the successful exponent of the art-cum-science of discretionary trading.

It is these two lines. On a daily basis. Setting the scene All the shouting and screaming in the pits is about the price action as it is happening there and then. The reasons are numerous and academic. The importance of highs and lows The Highs and Lows are without doubt the most important.
These are very significant places within the trading day. As the market reaches those levels again.
The seasoned trader will know all about resistance and support. Even then. S2 as only the initial grid lines on your chart. These are the lines that the market has to take note of and.
