We’ve met several times at jeffrey’s meeting and I came to your seminar last fall. I ordered Tradestation and your indicators after that meeting. For a year I’ve had been in a job that kept me from looking at market intraday. I took a few weeks off between jobs and tried a little day trading.
I’m not completely fluent on Tradestation but learning. I’m writing to say THANK YOU for your teaching. I learned a couple nuances that really helped. I tried to discipline myself to “buy at support and sell at resistance”. I’m constantly amazed at how often the calculated support is at some other support like an MA.
THE most helpful thing I learned new was using the last condition change candle, which has it’s own line, as an additional level of support or most often as an intraday price target. I’ve never been as excited about trading or more appreciative of my blessings and people around me and I appreciate you and your lessons. Hope to sign up for a private tutoring week this year. Waited because I want to be Tradestation competent. You also do a lot of option trading and I have not so I need to get up to speed on that first. Hope Mary is well and fully recovered. Thank you again Ron P.

7/25/16 - Thank you, Mary for all of your help and support last week during the mentoring. Testimonial sent: The personal mentoring with John Person is by far the best trading training I have experienced in 20 years! John adapted the training to suit my personal requests, and he more than fulfilled my expectations. From learning about his proprietary indicators (and receiving a couple of new ones), to assessing the market condition, to receiving very clear high probability set-ups, to selecting instruments, to managing trades, John covered it all. Before attending, I had participated in his trade room and studied his courses and books. But it wasn’t until this mentoring that the light bulbs went on. He showed me the independent back-testing of his material, and how accurate, reliable, and robust it is time after time after time. Mary and John’s thoughtfulness, warmth, and support were truly wonderful - topped only by Cassie the dog who runs the show. It was fun, intense, and mind altering - a very good thing!
If you haven’t received private mentoring from John Person, do it! Profits are waiting for you; what are you waiting for?

5/16/16 - Mr John Person, I want to thank you for what has been for me the best trading room I have ever experienced. After trading every summer for 16 years my wife has finally convinced me to sell in May and go away. I'm not sure how it will go since I'm a day trader and like the excitement.
I would like to leave a testimonial and you have my permission to use it if you would like.
I have traded in dozens of trading rooms for over 16 years and I want to relay to others that in my experience John Person is head and shoulders above the rest. The trading system that John has developed works beautifully day in and out in any time frame. Furthermore, John's insights to events unfolding in real time as well as his wealth of experience in the markets will give you an edge. Trading is difficult these days but with a real pro in your corner, you will have an advantage over others. Sincerely, Peter B.

A quick note to let you know that I am closing out the best two week stretch in my long trading career, and the credit goes to you.
Your market sense and insight kept me on the right side of the market and in numerous successful trades. My biggest obstacle in trading has always been being torn between my long term analysis getting clouded by the short term noise. You have helped me through this process and I am grateful. I can't express enough my gratitude for all the hard work you do on behalf of your clients. I know you have mentioned that this work is something that you do for yourself, but sharing it with us on such a timely basis is incredibly helpful and appreciated. Between the tweets, e-mails, advice in your trading room, and of most importance to me, the weekly market thoughts and observations. I spend Sunday afternoon doing my homework for the week, and it is very enlightening to get your thoughts to help in this process. Thanks, and Happy Birthday on Saturday. Cheers, John Z.

Loren M. Dated Wednesday, Jul 29, 2015
7/9/2015- Dear John and Mary, ...Personally, I started trading full time about a year ago. Up until that point, my own market involvement was limited to longer term holdings because I had been told by the ...... that trading was a sucker’s game…and I believed them. However, as time went on, I became so infatuated with the markets, active trading was an inevitable occurrence in my own life. First I started swing trading stocks…then day trading stocks…then day trading index futures, swing trading options and the list goes on and on. I read everything that I could get my hands on (I have a collection of about 25 books), researching until all hours of the morning, and hoping that it would all come together. But it did not. I kept losing money; A LOT of money. After only seven months, I started looking at law schools because at that point in time, the ......... were right.
But then, I stumbled across John on YouTube. I came to the site and became very interested with the services that John provides. I kept eyeing his TTU course while looking for any feedback on it. There was none to be found. I took a leap of faith and decided that I would give this trading thing one more try, but with some help this time. Fast forward four months later; the success that I have had has been nothing less than remarkable. I have come further and faster (mind you) than I ever thought was possible. I have almost fully recovered all prior capital losses, been consistently profitable over the last ten weeks, and perhaps most importantly, absolutely love trading again.
In closing, if you are considering taking a course from John, I strongly encourage you to do so. I am not going to lie and say that John is perfect (he is pretty close though), or I only trade his methods…but what I will say is that John personally gave me a strong foundation in which to build my own methods on. If you are lost as a trader, John will be able to help you. But…in full disclosure, it will not be easy. You will need to put in the long nights and early mornings learning, researching, analyzing, perfecting, and back testing. Because, even though John throws out great trades in the trading room or twitter, isn’t the idea to be able to find them yourself? Again, thank you John & Mary! I owe all my success to the two of you.

John Z Dated Tuesday, Nov 18, 2014
Hello Mary, I have been following John Person since early 2010. Over the years, I have studied many market professionals, but have found none to be of the same caliber as John. John is a consummate professional who is happy to share his knowledge with those willing to put forward the effort to learn trading through his teachings.
Some of the key things I have learned from John is patience, and a method of trading that works for my style of trading. John’s teaching is so broad, that it allows one to find a style of trading that works best for each individual which is imperative to trade successfully. For so many years I had looked for an individual I could follow, and instigate trades just as he, or she did without a lot of thought on my part. John has taught me that this is not only an act of folly, but can lead to questioning what one is doing, and at best stop trading, or at worse, blow up an account.
The second, and equally important aspect I have learned from John is patience. I no longer feel compelled to trade all the time. I have learned to watch the market and wait for a key set up with maximum potential, and minimal risk. I no longer take impulse trades. I am confident to wait, and then to act when the conditions are right.
The last thing I would like to pass along is the people who surround John. A measure of a persons worth can often be measured by those around him or her. John seems to attract such high quality people, all of who are more than happy to help and share their experiences, it truly makes being involved in the Person family a delight. Warm Regards, John Z

The mentoring at sea was planned and executed extremely well. The schedule was adhered to and also allowed plenty of relaxation and family time. We were presented with many trading ideas and bonus material to help make us successful traders.

9-3-13- ...I'm still benefitting from your Trading Triggers course, and 3 of your books in which one book, I was fortunate enough to have autographed while you were in Toronto last year in October.
To date, my favourite John Person tactics are, the high and low close doji, the Benchmark candle, and congruency of either pivots, Fibonacci and Ma's. Plus, calculating and plotting (a 10-12 hour task each month) the MONTHLY pivots for 45 indices and stock which I follow have paid off month after month, and for roughly a year and a half now, I've been net profitable, and though it's taken me just over 6 years, I know and realize without your insight and guidance, I'd still be struggling....and losing money...lol
After the many years learning and studying, I believe until one can find a truly successful mentor, and tweak his/her way within a system which works for them, plus learn the "rules of the road" and develop a trading style which is suitable, one will not be able to attain and sustain constant success, meaning, we'll always have losing trades, but in the long run we'll become consistently net profitable. As a former musician for 15 years ( a steadily employed one...lol) I've found learning this skill to be much the same, as one has to practice and develop their craft, and it doesn't happen overnight. Only with years of training and dedication and passion are we able to enjoy true success...with a bit of luck.
Thank you John, and of course Mary for all the work Mary does behind the scenes, and for generously sharing your expertise with me over the years.

7-16-13 - Hello John, I had the pleasure in meeting you in Toronto back in October of 2012, you signed my book even with your hand inoperable. I hope you have healed well.
I would like to thank you once again as your monthly pivots strategy has worked time in, and time out for me. I have now had 11 successive profitable trades, thanks to all of your strategies but the monthly pivot, almost works like clockwork.
Thank you for your Trading Triggers course and your books, and endless seminars. You are the best instructor I've encountered, and please believe there have been many over the years. After 7 years in actual trading, I've have been net profitable for just over 6 months now. I truly feel that I'm starting to get the hang of it ,and until one finds his or her own "personal groove" accompanied by excellent information, technique and strategies such as yours, one can only hope. I've now found what best works for me, my own personal groove. Thank you!

Hi Mary, Thanks for sharing, and for the recording link. I met John at the Trader's Expo in las Vegas years ago and have been a big fan and promoter of him ever since. I was so impressed that he took the time after his presentation to speak with me and that his philosophies were very logical and in line with my own thinking. I always try to make John's presentations a priority as he does put on the best presentations and is so knowledgeable. Plus, I like his sense of humor. Something I hadn't realized before, but John Jr. was involved with the presentation this time and I think that is spectacular! Sounds like a sharp individual. Thanks Again. Thomas

Hello John, I am a subscriber to your Live trading Room hosted by Butch Heading and have been trading the E-min S&P\'s for the last 5 years, 2 years professionally. I have been successful as a trader using Pivots and a Momentum signal approach, however since I have been applying your methods of reading candle sticks as well as your Genesis based moving average software my trading has reached the next level. I am finding that I am much more consistent since joining the room and have averaged wins of 58% versus 42% draw downs. Of interest is when I apply your 15 min methods exclusively I have found much greater success running 68% wins versus 32% draw downs - furthermore, since 5-16 with the expanded ranges, I have been running 80% wins vs 20% draw downs utilizing your 15 min methods. I give a Golf Clap to Butch as he is a great asset to your organization and has taught me an enormous amount - In fact I didn\'t know how I was successful without your methods! Again many thanks for your assistance and looking forward to a profitable relationship. Best regards

I now trade a 100% better, I trade with less fear, with more confidence and stay on profit course rather than getting out prematurely. I don't? over trade. I stopped foolish trading and wishful thinking on losing trades. I accept small losses [ I have not had yet] as part of the process and wait patiently for good trades. I can't? thank you enough.

John:I have been trading stocks and options for years. I really never had much success trading options. Though I had sizable wins in the equities market during the bull run , I would end up giving a good portion of the profits back on market reversal. Frustrated with the equities and the options market, I started trading the emini S&P. Though I took many courses, bought a bunch of fancy software, subscribed a host of expensive news letter, and attended a bunch of high price trading rooms, none made me a profitable trader. Call me slow, but I knew deep down inside that I had to sift through most of the noise out there in order to find the right fit that would provide me the tools and the confidence to unfold the subtleties of the market. Well that was your course

Just to inform you, your office and especially Justin, have been very professional and it is also the best online shopping experience I've encountered to date. Thank you very much. Sincerely

Thank you John! I really cannot overstate how valuable your work will be to me, and I am very grateful to see this great work provided in TOS. Since your original presentation, I back tested against many, many stocks I am trading and it really is very predictive as you already know but I am just discovering in my areas of interest. I know you emphasized that you should wait for the confirmation the following trading period, and I agree; however, I noticed that if you are “in the direction of the trend” there were few to no exceptions to successful outcomes by trading on the first signal (upward blue arrow in TOS) if overall trend was in the same direction and could help you capture that first move. I also notice that if trend is positive and see downward arrow, you can avoid excessive trading by doing as you said – wait for the next confirmation. I am very grateful for this work you have done and you are making a difference for small investors like me

My name is Kris and I attended the presentation that John gave to the trading group that I was part of last saturday.
I would like to say thank you to John for how much he has helped me and my father become better traders. Listening to him and
learning about his system has actually helped us understand more of what we are doing.
I must have read and studied everything that was put in front of me on the subject of trading. From the Fundamentals to Advanced Technical Analysis, I was always reading something. Even the courses and instructors that I was a part of kept me confused about what I was really doing.
His presentation on the subject of trading and listening to his stories about his past in the business (and trading with his son) gave us more confidence and a real world view on everything. He took a world of trading insanity and simplified it. We are trading smarter and better because of him. I cannot thank him enough.If you could pass this on to him it would mean a lot to us. Thank you!
