Here are some comments I have received from emails .
… Just a bit of feedback for you: I can now trade IndexTrader, BBTT &
Key Level independently of your newsletters (and I do shadow you), but I
find it convenient to use your newsletters for forwarding to the Broker
for the live trading. My current newsletters are: IndexALERT (as a
proxy for IndexTrader), ForexALERT (as a proxy for Key Level) and BBTT
newsletters … Brent, it’s a credit to you that I’m looking at using all
of your services. Gemma (my wife) and I are very grateful for you
helping us over the last few years – a big thank you.
Dear Brent, I have
finished your “Back to Basics Trading” book. Fantastic! I guess, I am not
the first one to tell you that ;-) I have learned a lot of things and I will
probably need to read it again and again to fully absorb its content. Yes,
thank you very much for sharing your experience and your knowledge.
Cheers David Sundries, Bondi, Australia.
BBTT was an interesting book to read - I don't think I have seen so much
comprehensive and practical advice packed into one book before. Well done!
Kym Haines, Australia.
I am still reading the entire BBTT manual, I think its great and wish I
had it 10 years ago! Thanks. Paul Grainger, Australia.
Received your BBTT book. Its fantastic! I've been floundering around for
about 5 years trying to trade. I've ... made all the mistakes that newbies
make but I think I'm on the right track now. Cheers Kevin Hall, NSW,
I first came across Brent
in 2005 after reading Trading the SPI – which I found was a great education
for me in regard to trading futures. After reading Trading the SPI, and then
meeting Brent, I decided to purchase IndexTrader and have been trading that
system for the last 3+ years. As I work full-time, I was looking for a EOD
mechanical system that was fairly easy to trade, was based on a verifiable
methodology and also utilized sound money management practices. IndexTrader
fitted the bill and I am still actively trading it today. As it is a “fully
disclosed” system, the setups and triggers are fully explained. They are
also easy to understand and implement; and of course Brent was always ready
to answer any queries, etc. Like any system that one can trade, IndexTrader
has had its up and downs. But a look at the system equity curve shows that
the basis of it is very sound and matches the “hypothetical performance”
statistics for the system. I feel that I am very lucky to have come across
Brent, as he is approachable and is always ready to answer any questions
regarding the trading of his systems. A great mentor to have! As well as
IndexTrader, I also trade other systems that Brent has developed. BBTT for
trading indexes, Key Levels for trading FX, as well as the ForexAlert
newsletter. As with IndexTrader, BBTT and Key Levels for FX are fully
disclosed systems that I have found easy to understand, implement, and
trade, etc. As with all of Brent's systems, both BBTT and KeyLevels for FX
appear to be based on a positive expectancy and utilise money management
strategies. With ForexAlert, as it is a newsletter/subscription service, it
is not fully-disclosed. However the beauty of this service is that there is
nothing to do but trade the signals that Brent provides. And as with the
other systems that Brent has developed, it seems to be based on a sound
methodology and money management. Regards, Steve Smith, NSW, Australia.
Dear Sir, I received the
book some 4 days back. I have read it completely. I have no words to
describe the first part .I have been trading for last 4 years but the
concept of money management, positive expectancy was new to me (I knew there
is something like that but your book informed me what. You have done an
outstanding job of explaining each system along with comparisons. There is
nothing like it .It is simply outstanding). Thank you very much. Bhalchandra
Ranade, Mumbai, India.
owner of IndexTrader, BBBT and Key Levels for over a year, I can say the key
attributes of all of Brent's products are unparalleled support and
transparency. His responses to any questions are always timely and helpful.
The mechanics of each system is fully explained and backed up with complete
trade histories and real-time copies of orders sent to his broker. The end
result is those new to trading can begin with a level of confidence not
found elsewhere. Regards, Oliver Mannion, New Zealand.
Dear Brent, Hi! This is
Stefan. I do not know if you remember me but I attended your BBTT course in
Singapore about 3 months ago. First let me compliment you on a fine course
that you conducted. It has been three months and I have been slowly
following up on your method and quite like it. While it is still early days,
I find that it works on the more liquid commodities futures contracts too.
But it is still early days. The reason why I am writing to you is to enquire
if you have other methods that you teach as I would be interested in
learning even more. I have been to many courses and I felt that you were one
of the few that tell participants straight up that it is not some be all and
end all method and that it requires hard work and does take some hits too
which is of course the truth. Anyway I hope to hear from you with a
favourable reply. Regards, Stefan Vaz, Singapore.
up a copy of Brent’s book Trading the SPI whilst browsing my local
bookstore; opening at a random page it quickly became obvious that here was
something different. I’ve spent $$$ on trading books but I’ve learnt more
from this book than any other. The information in one chapter in this book
has repaid my investment many times over. It’s the best $30 I’ve ever spent.
In BBTT Brent takes Trading the SPI to the next level and takes you by the
hand through the steps you need to take if want to succeed as a professional
trader. J. Butterworth, Perth, Australia.
Hi Brent, I am impressed
by BBTT....As a purchaser of your IndexTrader & SpiTrader systems, is there
any chance of obtaining the excel spreadsheet with the underlying historical
(hypothetical) trades which support the statistics on your website??? (as
you have provided with the Index Trader & SpiTrader systems). Obviously, I
will respect your Intellectual Property....and only use the data for my own
learning. Many Thanks. Trevor Weisse, OLD, Australia.
BBTT is an excellent resource for any trader. Not only does it give an
excellent introduction to key trading principles but it also includes
essential information on managing your money and controlling the risks of
trading.....An absolute must for any trading to avoid losing all your money!
The methodology is also outlined in simple to understand language and along
with the TEST systems of trading allows anyone to become very comfortable
with the BBTT methodology. Corin Jacka, Australia.
Dear Brent, I am so happy
with your first book that I am going to buy your second one “Back to Basics
with The Key Level Trading System” for FX trading ;-) Please let me know
what I need to do for that. Thank you. Cheers, David Sundries, Bondi,
..... Dear Brent, On the
20th January I received your email “Starting the Trading Year with a
Fresh Edge”. This was a timely reminder to start thinking about trading
the SPI, in my case, as I had decided to cash up all my funds management
investments in the middle of 2008 and take control myself. This new
adventure into what began as share trading again in November 2008
culminated in some successes during November and early December, but I
did not feel confident and was certainly confused by the myriad of
advice in the market place and all the technical analysis tools. Having
received your offer I immediately surfer the net for your website and
was amazed at the fantastic testimonials for your new book “Back to
Basics Trading”. Names like Larry Williams, Darryl Guppy and Nick Radge
were familiar to me, having met the later two and listened to Larry
years ago on a satellite broadcast. Your book and Index Alerts had to be
for me. I offer this testimonial as an example of “Fresh Eyes” wanting
to learn more about futures trading with confidence and to build my
tools in share trading. Your book is simply fantastic! It offers all the
tools, money management, equity curve, simply techniques to enter,
manage and exit trades. I have now found the confidence to trade in the
markets you suggest, accept managed losses and take profit. IndexAlert
added the benefit of your many years of experience and allow me to
follow the rules, your rules, to hopefully make me a long term trader
and work towards becoming one of the 10% of traders that have longevity
in the markets. I can honestly highly recommend to anyone new to trading
or traders with some experience purchase BBTT and watch your daily
recommendations for successful trading. Lets face it, Larry Williams
puts it perfectly, and it is for me “The Most Comprehensive Trading Book
I Have Ever Read” Your book BBTT and IndexAlert are a must have! Kind
regards Len Moss, NSW, Australia.
Hello Brent, Your book
came in the mail today. I have had a quick read and impressed with your
simple, factual and honest content. Keep up the good work!! Samuel Lee,
I purchased your excellent book and have a couple of questions
regarding BBTT (if it’s ok……. Btw your book is
excellent – you give a very frank and realistic approach of “how to”
approach trading and money management, and I was very impressed by
how simple and well set-out BBTT is. BBTT provides a clear,
straight forward and structured approach to trading - which is the
key ingredient to becoming a consistently profitable trader. Well
done and a huge THANK YOU!!!!!
Fyi ’ve been
trading on & off for 18 years......A lot of books & courses theorise
about trading, don’t even mention money management, and are very
vague when it comes to specific rules – and of course – make it
sound “mysterious” (eg XXXX). I like your
straight forward, “no BS” approach with specific rules and test
results. And I’m signing up
for your BBTT newsletter as well to make sure I’ve got BBTT nailed
down (AND to watch you trade live!). Many Thanks again,
Thanks for sharing this (BBTT) with me Brent. You have again
successfully created another well researched, intelligent,
realistic, honest & valuable approach to trading that isn’t
available from anyone else. Well done! Cheers,
Just a note to say thanks for sending BBT book so prompt I am on my
second read through and finding all the problems I have had are the
same mistakes every one makes, the chapter on money management is
fantastic. I will be subscribing to your news letter before I start
trading. But for now there
is a lot of work to do first setting up back trading and preparing
for test trading. I would like to
thank you for taking the time to write this book and helping
struggling traders like me. The simplicity and honesty of your
writing I’m sure are going help structure my trading like never
before. Thank You.
Glynn Wellington, NSW, Australia.
Hi Brent, Book arrived safe and
sound. Many thanks for the words of encouragement. I'm stuck into it
already and really relate to the journey I've already experienced
and the mistakes I've already made. It is amazing that "everyone"
seems to make the same ones - I guess that's life isn't it - part of
a necessary journey and learning experience like a rite of passage
almost. I'm pleased that I won't be repeating these here-on. I'm so
determined to succeed in this endeavour and I thank you for the
guidance and awakening your book has already brought and I am sure
it will continue to into the future. Best wishes to you and yours,
Graham Sensicle, WA, Australia.
Well it's been 3 days full on studying and I'm very impressed with
the contents. I have now started the TEST/backtesting and hope to
validate. I have some questions but feel they will probably be
cleared up in your daily newsletter which I want to subscribe to
tomorrow (Tue). Cheers,
John, NSW, Australia.
I was wondering if I was missing something!
On another topic, I've almost finished BBTT and it is an excellent
book - both my husband (an absolute novice in all matters of
trading) and I (with a couple of years of [failed] trading behind
me) are finding it very worthwhile. It has certainly reinforced my
decision to concentrate on a mechanical trading style and hopefully
will encourage my husband to think beyond fundamental analysis!
Priya, ACT, Australia.
I have bought many trading systems
and courses that have all the big sales pitches with so called 100%
accuracy and did they work? No. BBTT is the only book and system
that I have ever seen that is completely honest. The text is easily
understandable and holds within it the warnings that all traders
that persist with the markets will find out and usually the hard
way. No-one else that I have found spells them out like BBTT. Brent
actually trades what he promotes which is another reason why this is
a real system that you can actually put your faith and confidence
in, because it’s not just your money going into the market on a leap
of faith it is the authors as well. Well done for producing
something honest for a refreshing change. Rob Campbell, Qld,

trade global indices with every day. Owners of my book are
