Dan Fitzpatrick's Stock Market Mentor is the culmination of more than a decade of teaching and corresponding with thousands of aspiring traders and investors with one common goal -- to develop the skills necessary to succeed in the stock market. While all traders and investors share the common goal of success, most also make the same mistakes that prevent them from reaching that goal. They take big losses; they are cautious and under-invested at the wrong time, or aggressive and over-invested at the wrong time; they own the wrong stocks at the wrong time, or the right stocks at the wrong time, and they fail to take profits and instead allow large gains to become small gains. The Stock Market Mentor teaches Members how to avoid these common mistakes. Most aspiring traders have heard the Wall Street maxim "Cut your losses short and let your profits run." Nevertheless, few traders are skilled in using the two essential tools necessary to follow that rule -- trailing stops and scaled entries and exits. Mentor Members learn how to use these tools and develop the skill and discipline necessary to succeed in the stock market.
Professional money managers and traders spend countless hours sifting through trade publications, research reports, newsletters and websites to find those tidbits of market information and trading ideas that enable them to produce superior returns. This research is both costly and time consuming -- most folks do not have the money or time for this much homework. Members of the Stock Market Mentor do not face this challenge. We subscribe to information sources costing thousands of dollars each month so you don't have to! Aside from maintaining contact with a large network of professionals, Dan Fitzpatrick reads a massive amount of material each week including industry publications, stock market advisory newsletters and research reports. Through the Stock Market Mentor, he shares the best of the best. As a result, the Stock Market Mentor is both time and cost efficient.
The cornerstone of The Stock Market Mentor is technical analysis. Technical analysis is used by many, but understood by few. The simple truth is that technical analysis does not predict; it informs. By focusing on what the market is actually doing rather than what the media is saying, we use technical analysis to identify the sectors, industry groups and stocks with the most potential for profits. Tracking these groups enables Mentor Members to be in the right stocks at the right time. Dan Fitzpatrick has become widely known for identifying "Volatility Squeezes" -- those stocks that have lulled the market to sleep and are close to breaking out. Dan posts nightly videos ranging from 20 - 30 minutes long, with market analysis, trading tutorials and analysis of stock movements that members can capitalize on.
The Stock Market Mentor also offers a Tutorial Learning Center with explanations of the various technical indicators used by professional traders. Many of these indicators are only useful when they are really understood. Dan Fitzpatrick has an ability to make the complexities of technical analysis accessible to beginners as well as seasoned professionals. The tutorials provide a more in-depth treatment of the indicators in an easily understood fashion, thereby increasing their effectiveness and accuracy for trading.
Stock Market Mentor videos are produced each weekday, with a more extensive Weekend Update published each Saturday.
