Joined the Underground about 2 weeks ago. First trade was CSCO @ 75.00. Tried 400 shares & worked beautifully...This was my first full 'active' week with you -- pared my shares way down and ended up +$6,800. Was thrilled with a crappy market and all :) I've been position trading for about 18 months and do just fine; however, your system is the first I've come across that puts the nuts & bolts together superbly. I'm not a scalper by nature but the swings have worked very well for me. I hooked up Qcharts, watch the ndoos all day long with you and have learned a ton in 10 days. The best part is that I can now actively trade during the cruddy and sideways markets that I needed to sit out between market cycles in the past. And, of course, being difficult to stay out at times, I would try and trade some and get burned. Ordered RAL's new manual, have everything going and wanted to tell you all what a terrific job you do. The teaching is wonderful and it really shines through that you love it. Also want to say what a pleasure the pit is all day long -- NOT a bunch of idiots saying stupid things all day long! A rather intelligent group that works pretty well together and led by a great, supportive teacher.... Thankfully,
Congratulations on a job well done! Working with you this year at the pit has been fun as well as profitable. Somehow you manage to make excellent calls while teaching us and answering our questions. Your staff is knowledgeable and always helpful. Although I don't say much during the day I feel I have many friends here at the pit. Very truly yours,
I have been a member of the pit for about 2 months including the free trial. In that time on a $40,000 account I have made about $25,000 in realized profit. This is ENTIRELY due to your ability to recognize stocks with some momentum potential, or with short term holding potential. Before I found your site I traded like what I have come to know as a chippie. Consistently loosing money and only very occasionally profitably. Your coaching ability is as important as the calls that you make, and I, for one, am exceedingly grateful to you and your team. Jay, enjoy your well-deserved vacation, and have a merry Christmas. With warmest personal regards, I remain, Sincerely yours,
Here's my story - It's sad but true. I have traded stocks and options for 6 years now. I always did well. I primarily did swing trading and figured that instant level II access would only improve my results. I had no idea how to day trade! I couldn't read a chart, had tremendous capital - a chippie through and through. At any rate, after repeated margin calls, etc., I realized I was in serious financial straits. I buckled down, paper traded, took a chart course, bought every book I could find and took the small capital left and began to make money. I had heard of the Underground Trader and I spent the free week. That week I consistently made 5% a day. I increased my capital and the last two weeks have consistently made 10% of capital (or better!) a day. I have had one losing day in the pit in three weeks. I know this is not a long term experience but I have learned more from you and the other traders in 3 weeks than I could have possibly imagined. Your reminders of discipline are invaluable and I have found small lot scalping to be lucrative, intense and importantly, very little downside risk. At any rate, if for no other reason, I wanted to e-mail you and thank you. Have a terrific vacation and I'll see you in the pit. Warm regards,
The first day I signed on to the trading pit under a free trial, I made profitable trades following Jay's methods...Profitable enough that first day to more than pay for the trading pit's first month's fee. But more important than making a few bucks was finding a mentor in Jay...Someone who could not just make good calls on momentum stocks, but someone who could instruct me in what precisely to look for in a chart when considering entering a trade. Jay's advice is more than just having another set of eyes on the market, although that too is valuable. His experience, which he's happy to share every day, is priceless in learning how to determine traders' behavior and how to read the market's psychology. In short, Jay's ongoing coaching has made me more than just serious money...Even more importantly, it's made me a better, more self-reliant trader.
I would like to say thanks a lot to Jay & Ral for their great teachings. I was having a lot of problems with my Trading and Discipline but they really helped me to improve my trading 1000 times over. I also learned just to go for base hits and not homeruns, 'cause sooner or later a base hit will drive in a run. I had been trading off and on for about 3 years and around the beginning of '99 I joined the Undergroundtrader and started trading full time and because of the Underground, 1999 will be my first profitable year. I know for a fact that I would have been out of the trading game if it wasn’t for the support of the Underground. Thanks Again!!
Without the Pit I would have been out of the game long ago. You've taught me what to look for and consequently my trading has improved greatly! How does the saying go? "You've taught me how to fish" - now I can confidently locate and make good trades on my own. Thanks again and look forward to a great New Year!
I have some good news to share with you.... We spoke in Ontario and I thanked you for not only putting me on the profitable road to trading, but also for making a positive financial lifestyle change in my personal life... Through my consistent daily trading profits from following your methods, my wife and I have been able to pay off the mortgage on our house.. We made the last triple payment yesterday, 8 years earlier than planned... This would not have been possible without your no nonsense approach to trading and the Pit atmosphere... I have been a member of the Pit for over a year.. ( My original nick was TraderDog.. I changed it cause it was too hard to type fast...lol ) Even though I have been trading full time for 3 years, I have never been this profitable for so long. Regardless of the market conditions... Jay, my family and I can't thank you enough.. You should be proud of how you have helped not only traders like me, but our families... Thanks so much...
I'm not too sure how much good my testimonial will be for you, but, here it is :) Most potential traders want to see testimonials of experienced traders making a virtual killing in the market, as proof of what they, themselves, might be capable of. However, the fact that I'm still around to trade is testimonial enough to those who have experienced the wrong associations as a new trader. The combination of enthusiasm, trust, and ignorance, along with the advice from "that other trading desk" relieved me of over $250,000 in a little less than one year. Thankfully, I "re-located" [to Undergroundtrader] and with the expert training provided at the Pit, have managed a slow, but consistent, recovery. Considering the amount of my losses, that is nothing short of amazing! Sincerely,
Just a quick note of thanks for all that you do in the room. I can't express how much I feel you have helped me round out my trading, and can only imagine how taxing it is at your end. As you can probably tell, I've settled into a scalper’s mentality on the long side with which I am comfortable, focusing heavily on basket stocks. We all know this market has been hell (ironically, this bear struggled more with last years Naz climb and still struggles a bit with strength markets) and I still make too many mistakes to count, but I can tell you I am up very nicely this year largely by hitting singles, playing oscillations, and scalping breakouts ... about 50/50 long and short, but more so from the long side than ever before. The daily gross (excluding commissions) of my trading account has recently been positive for 34 straight trading days, netting a positive day 85% of the time. I now monitor the Pit mainly as a supplement and a third eye. You're all class Jay, as is the room, and you have my gratitude. Take care and keep up the great work!
I can't adequately express my thanks for what you do in the Pit. You hear it all of the time so perhaps you've built some defenses for ego-preservation, but you're the best. Who would have thought that there would be a place where you can actually get your money's worth? That someone with the insight and DAILY demonstrated ability to beat the markets day in and day out would choose to teach others and lift them to higher ground? I've been through the euphoria of winning and the blues of losing, and it's no way to go. Emotions kill performance and although I'm very happy that things are going so well and my account is growing in leaps and bounds, I'm *MUCH* more grateful for the education that I'm getting. The education removes the mystery and allows you to step back and be less emotional. As you well know, that's when the real money comes. All the best to you Jay. You're very blessed to be able to do something so well, and to have such a gift for teaching and leading others. Thank you, Jay.
Been with the pit since Sept. Am up 17K during this learning curve. I still know very little in comparison with what I have yet to learn...but I will get there. Between my short term and long term learning goals I figure I will be at lest 2 more years to be comfortable (including Ral's methods) I am patient and will get there. But THANKS to you for providing the opportunity to learn under a MASTER. Sincerely,
I am new to your room. My trading has been weak to marginal at best and lost a lot of money in the process. I have learned more in the last 2 days than I have in 2 years. I am so impressed with you and your "metered risk technical trading" ability. To tell you the truth I was ready to walk away from daytrading and simply depend on my mutual funds. My experience in the past couple days has changed my mind. You have turned the light back on and made a dark room bright. Thank you for helping me today. There are so many questions coming your way and yet you make us feel like we are with you one on one. You’re an amazing man and very happy to be in your room. My warmest regards,
Wow, what a service, what an education and what a teacher! I cannot begin to tell you how much I have learned over the last year from you and the members of the Pit. I was a newbie to daytrading when I joined the pit, and I questioned whether the Pit was just another Pump and Dump place that would gladly take my membership money. Was I surprised...My first day trading with you I made $2700.00 and I thought, 'this Jay Yu guy is great...all I have to do is sign on, trade his calls and make money...Which I can do any day...And this is worth much more than the price of admission. My surprise came and what I didn't expect was that I was receiving an education on trading the markets and being taught by a master. You know the saying...Teach a man to fish... Jay, Ral and all the others at the Pit You are the Best! Thank You,
At first I would like to express my gratitude to you and your day by day guidance and leadership. For last month Every day I have been in the pit I see you doing great job of not only giving us ALERT'S but teaching us . Believe it or not for years this was in my mind to enter the market but I didn't know how? Where? and what? You know what I mean? This was a dark and unclear subject for me, I started some reading and , tell you that I like to do my home work. I did read a few books until last November I find your web site and I got your book and did read that cover to cover, I can't say I understood everything but little by little just about every day I refer to it and understand it better. to be honest with you from November 2000 until February 2001 I followed your calls in nightly cap section of your web site and compared it to the intra day charts. Anyway I am a new member of pit (one month) I did paper trade for few weeks before entering the pit then and started with 100 and move to 200 shares at first I did lost a little bit but finally I learned my lesson and started to stop loss management and practice it. I am sure you have notice that recently I started my green days and that is because I learned to listen to you more carefully like( take the gain when its possible and don't take big loss, sell it while loss is small), And last but not least( charts are not just color full lines). I make most of my green in first 15 min of market by doing your call's and doing it fast. And as soon as you say now we are in the dead zone I turn off my computer. I have no doubt in my mind that with your help and my hard work I will learn. Just want to say thank you.
Sorry I have been negligent in writing. I retired Sep 30 after 30 years with Ernst & Young. I took a part time job as a Community Service Officer with the Westlake Police Department. It's been almost full time, so I'm only online sporadically. One of the other officers is ill, so I should be more active in the Pit after the 1st of the year. Anyway, I wanted to congratulate you on your engagement and decision to take a vacation. Make sure you do that from time to time. One of our senior partners always told us to be sure and take time to smell the roses. My retirement game plan was to retire as I did, and trade with an objective of $10k/month, roughly $500/day. I gave myself until then for my learning curve. Thanks to you, almost exclusively, I have doubled my goal to date. In fact, I think working as I do has helped my trading. I manage to catch the beginning and/or end of the trading day everyday. As a result, the overnights and swings have just been superb for me. I'm probably only slightly profitable on momentum plays, I still need work on my discipline. However, your teaching & guidance is outstanding. I can't begin to thank you. Every now and then, I see someone get on your case and see you react, all I can say is, continue to focus on those of us who follow you (and Ral and others). You have a great operation and following, enjoy it and "nos illegitimus carborundum" or something like that -- Don't let the bastards grind you down :-) Talk to you soon. Thanks again.
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help and update you on my progress. So far this year I have made profits of $235,000 (and have taken about 10 weeks vacation). About half of it was from your calls the other half from applying what I have learned from you to my basket stocks. I have made some money writing covered calls but abandoned that approach when the market weakened and entered a number of long term swings. The swings are doing great but I don’t count them as profit until I sell them. I am gaining confidence as a trader and most days it seems like I can easily exceed $2,000 ( I don’t have a daily goal as I believe in taking only what the market can give me). I am improving on taking my stops and have greatly improved my decisions on trades that I should enter (which goes a long way to reduce the number of stops one needs to take.) Most days I do 4 or 5 trades and a busy day for me is 10 trades. I hope that level of activity is normal. I hear of some in the pit that do up to 100 in a day! I have attached an Excel spreadsheet I use to keep track of my trading activity. I have entered dummy trades to illustrate how it works. (Yes I am a retired CFO and have an urge to track pennies) If you like it feel free to give it to traders that may need something like that to keep track of their trades. Just my thoughts on giving something back to the pit. Again, thanks for your help and please keep up the great work!!!
As a charter member of the Pit I'm happy to provide you with the following: I had prepared a long detailed response to you query re: feedback, however I decided to shorten it for now and to compliment you on what you and your staff have done. Personally I have grown tremendously. I consider myself much improved, and I expect to 'breakout this year'. In 1998 I lost about 430k, in 1999 it has been reduced to just over 188k. I know this is still a lot to lose but it is a considerable improvement. My circumstance places a large handicap on trading which has required a lot of tuning (work in progress), but I am confident the "PIT" will be instrumental in my ultimate mastery of trading. Again, thank you and your staff. God Bless You.
My trading has become disciplined and moving toward controlled emotion since trading with the underground. Before becoming a Jay Trader my success was not shabby; however, after applying the tools of trading my portfolios have at least doubled and some have multipled 4 or 5 times. A few of my trading friends are appalled at the idea of a pit leader and favor the more traditional investment approach. However, the bottom line keeps me here. Even when I get into a trade that goes against me, I know what I have to do. Before trading here, I would stay in positions until the value was embarrassing and I resorted to message boards for the strength to stay while praying for recovery. The one area I still need to work on is realistic goal setting - my goals are still too low. To Jay I salute you for your little lectures to remind us this is our chosen profession.
Excellent trader and methodology.
