Ooooohhh yeah!! Finally getting into the nitty gritty, REALLY enjoyed this chapter. It starts out a little slow going over chat rooms and services Tim uses or has used in the past. Which is useful, but a little boring for me. I know of and use all these same services (well except the promoters). And then there was a middle block of time allowing Tim Sykes and Investors Underground to go over their history and what their products are geared towards. If you are considering subscribing this was a good “infomercial” for those two services.


Now when I use the term “infomercial” I’m using it in a positive sense. I know this term is often used as a negative. But Tim gives both of them time to describe what they offer and how, but I’m also not an idiot, their goal is to get you to subscribe, but there is NOTHING wrong with that. Both Sykes and IU give very fair and honest descriptions of what they have to offer. If you are considering subscribing to either or both this was a good segment.

Then we get into the daily scans and daily prep. Very solid presentation and very beneficial. Tim does a great job in detailing how he scans and his thought process. This I think could be a great benefit to any new or intermediate trader. I picked up a couple tips but also it really geared up my confidence a little, I did not realize how similar Tim’s and my process’s were. On that note, great quote by Tim:

“Confidence is one of the most important things when trading.” – Tim Gritanni

I will be adding several tips from the last third of this chapter to my scanning and daily routine arsenal. After this first chapter past the “basics” I’m very fired up to see the next few.
