From an Amazing Trader subscriber who has also completed the AT Ladder Strategy program:
“I'm finally entering trades based on the presence (or lack thereof) of that directional indicator thing you talk about. I think I've always done it to some degree or another based on intuition, but the red and blue horizontal ladder lines make go/no go decisions much more clear...like on tonight's EUR/USD action for example. When I see a bunch of red lines and a single blue line that keeps on appearing and disappearing as it gets broken, I know that selling in expectation of a reversal is not the way to go.”
When an episode changes, there is often a change in direction.
This is not always the case...for instance during periods of consolidation. Price will move up or down for a while, consolidate in a range, then begin moving in the same direction again as the market continues its prior activity.
HOWEVER...when a change in direction occurs, the prior episode's support or resistance lines are treated by the market as stops to be targeted. The disciplined trader should be aware of this, for they can use it to great advantage.
Consider this example in EUR/USD. In one episode, price went up over three days from 1.1066 to 1.1107 as the market bought non-stop. There were spots of support at 1.1065, 1.1072, 1.1079, 1.1084, and onward up to resistance at 1.1108. AT marked the significant support prices as red horizontal lines (ladder lines) as price went up.
Then at the end of the week, Friday was NFP day. There was already resistance at 1.1108. What did the market do after the NFP announcement?
Yeah, the market decided to slam all the stops and knock price down a bit. All those prior spots of support at 1.1079, 1.1072, 1.1065 and so on were targeted as potential stops and tripped. As price hit each potential stop on its move downward, three days of buying was completely reversed by three hours of selling. In fact, in less than six hours after the NFP announcement, price went all the way down to 1.1040 before buying started up once again.
By using AT, the disciplined trader can identify all of those significant points of support and resistance IN ADVANCE, and recognize them for what they really are...stops to be targeted when an episode changes direction!
This works on all timeframes, in any market...and why shouldn't it? It is a totally logical market behavior that should be obvious to any trader. Why continue buying or selling at an already-extreme price when you can get a much better price? That IS one of the benefits of stops, after all.
Knowing where those stops are by using AT can really improve your trading game. At the very least, they can save you from making a disastrous trading decision.

The following from an Amazing Trader (AT) subscriber shows how our program has impacted his trading
I find that with continued use of AT, my discipline to follow actual market movements is increasing. In other words, AT is in a sense forcing me to trade the market as it actually is, rather than speculate on something that might be. I guess that's what "learning market timing" meant in an earlier time, but in the modern era I just think of it as "learning to follow the market".
I trust that other AT subscribers are finding the same thing.
Prior to learning the CSFT strategy and using the Amazing Trader I used to trade with 50 pip stops. Now I am able to trade with 5, 10 or 15 pip stops because I have learned to trade on the strong side of the market where there is less chance of getting stopped out. This has raised my confidence in trading and has my endorsement
While not strictly a review this post by an AT subscriber on the AT forum shows how you can use the Amazing Trader to trade.
From the AT Forum:
What IS relevant is what AT can tell you immediately:
1. The strong side to trade (SELL in this case)
2. Suitable entry and stop levels
Nice and simple. Get into a trade. Let it run for a while. Cut it off if it goes bad. No worries about "up or down?" None of this "2 days to go and 70-90 points to go"...imagine seeing price go in the wrong direction after 2 days. That would really suck! No thanks.
AT means "Amazing Trader” , not “Amazing Speculator”
Amazing Trader and CSFT Review 19:21:28 GMT - 09/10/2019
This is a review from a trader who subsctibes to the Amaingg Trader and completed th CSFT course (name withheld as requested). See prior post to sign up
I am a skeptic by nature but now I am a believer after learning how to use the Amazing Trader to execute the CSFT strategy. Before I felt I needed some luck to make a good trade. Now I open my platform and it all makes sense to me. Highly recommend.

I just completed the CST course and honestly, it makes so much common sense to my trading now. In the past I studied and attended webinars since I first began learning the hard way to trade some 11 years ago.
I can personally highly recommend the CST and the Amazing Trader[AT] trading algo. I am much more confident now in trading ,using the CST and AT.
Except for the rare volatile day, daily ranges continue to compress, which means you need to be able to adjust to this new normal for as long as it lasts.
In this environment I find the Amazing Trader, its trading lines and the patterns they form to be invaluable. It has allowed me to adjust my trading and take advantage of what the market is giving you.
Part of successful trading is the ability to adapt and the Amazing Trading (and CST) is proving to be flexible as I intended when I created the program.... Jay Meisler .
I have just finished your new Common Sense Trading course. It is clear and concise without all the bs you see elsewhere. Great course, great strategy, easy to put into practice and would recommend it to anyone looking to become a better trader.... USA John April 26, 2019
I have been using the AT for about one year, and have now made it part of my trading tool belt. It allows me to run through my currency pairs on various timelines, honing in to entry and exits. This has lead to an increase in profitability in my trading.
Jay does supply a number of useful videos that help train you using the system which once the concept has been grasped will limit your silly mistakes and be used to find road maps in situations.
Though there is a fee that is small in comparison to the savings in losses and growth in profits it brings... London D Nov 28 2018
I'll put the bottom line at the top: The Amazing Trader works great. To effectively utilize it and hence gain value from it, you need to appreciate the AT "methods" and employ them in your everyday trading..
AT works by breaking down price action into separate "episodes", and then tailoring a logical approach to trading each episode. This works very well, as long as you can understand when new episodes begin and end. Understanding episode timing is an ability that is developed with practice...it will be easier for the mentally disciplined trader, but for the less disciplined trader, it will help you develop more discipline.
Once you understand (and hopefully accept and appreciate) the methods, you will start to appreciate its value. This is a question that everybody must evaluate for themselves.
In terms of "getting what you pay for", AT consists of three major pieces: Education about the AT "methods", access to customized MT4 charts with detailed price levels, and full access to the Amazing Trader private forum (including the ability to ask questions to professional traders who know what they are talking about).
My own opinion is that if you utilize AT in your trading and participate in the Amazing Trader private forum, then you can easily justify an extended AT subscription...Minneapolis DRS2 Nov 20, 2018
