This is the last chapter and is obviously setup to fulfill a need of tying up a bunch of loose ends and random, but probably frequent questions Nate and others at IU get.

Myself I did not gain a ton from this chapter, but I have been in the IU “community” for 5+ years. So even though I didnt learn a bunch, that by no means there is not good info. I literally got two emails just last night with questions that would have been answered in this chapter. So for sure if you are a new trader or new to momentum stocks or the IU community its well worth the watch.

Topics covered include:

  • Trade on the Fly – Michelle’s swing trading watchlists/webinars and chat room
  • A quick tour of Nates desktop setup – I did like this, I’ve been tweaking my DAS setup forever, and liked to see how he laid his out.
  • Brokers – See notes below
  • A list of simple but HIGHLY useful chatroom tips/tweaks. Again these are simple things, but it probably took me months to figure them out on my own way back when. Nate gives them all you you in about 2 minutes.

If you have read through any or even better all of these reviews I appreciate your valuable time. I’m sure you can tell this DVD would be highly recommended by me. But I will be doing a 5 minute video review of the entire DVD this weekend. I will be posting it here, twitter and youtube.
