It will help to protect yourself financially.

Words from The Professor
Hear actual comments from The Professor .
When asked why he is doing all this he responded:
From the book (The Professor’s One Minute Guide to Stock Management).
It all started in April 2009. I came home from playing golf and told my wife Marcia about a conversation I had with a friend. He told me that he lost a considerable amount of money in the stock market. He said that was dissatisfied with his financial advisor who was with supposed to be watching his investment portfolio. But apparently, all his advisor was doing was watching his investments go down. I told my friend that the technical indicators I was following were negative, and had been negative for some time, and that no one should be in the stock market under these conditions. I wondered why his financial advisor wasn’t telling him this.
When I discussed this with my wife, she opined that maybe people don’t understand technical analysis or indicators. Maybe it was time for someone to explain them in simple, easy to understand terms so everyone can use them to make investment decisions for themselves, without the need for ’advisors’. Or if they had a financial advisor, they can use these indicators to discuss whether they should be in or out of a particular investment. I believe that investors and advisors should know how to manage a portfolio, not just watch it go up or down.
After discussing the above with Marcia, I decided to have a seminar at my golf club. So early in March 2009, with the Dow trading near 6,700, I stood before my friends and neighbors and announced that the Dow was going back above 10,000. I’m sure they wondered who this guy was that was so confident to make a prediction like this. I gave my reasons, explaining how technical analysis could be used to project a higher market. One of the participants at the seminar was so excited, that she told a neighbor about the seminar, who happened to work at the University of North Florida’s Department of Continuing Education. A few days later I was the discussing the outline of a course with them. The course was developed from a Methodology that I have used in my trading for years. When I worked for the Navy, I used to talk about this Methodology with my co-workers. Then after I left government service and consulted back to the Navy, I used to teach it to many of the people I worked with at Patuxent River, Maryland.
And now, after three years teaching the course at UNF, The Professor’s One Minute Guide to Stock Management has proven to be a very popular course. It draws overflow crowds of students of all ages and investment experience levels, and has been reported in newspapers and on TV. It is not like any other financial course or an expensive trading seminar. You don’t need expensive trading software to manage your investments. You only need to understand a few simple rules and indicators that are available for free on the internet. My One Minute Guide only requires you to look at your stocks one minute a day for you to protect yourself. Trading and investments should not be a worrisome adventure. Life is too short and every moment is precious. There are too many things that we need to be concerned about as we live our lives. Worrying about our investments should not be one of them.
I hope this book and my Methodology helps you understand the markets, and provides you with the decision tools to become financially independent and protect yourself. Take control - Do it yourself. It’s your money, your retirement, your kid’s education, your financial future. Protect it.

You may not be a wizard but you are a great teacher. This is coming from a recently retired teacher. Your classes and your daily commentary have raised my investing knowledge quotient a hundred fold. Thanks for your work.
The course was outstanding. I am a retired electronics engineer having achieved executive VP positions in several companies and as such have been exposed as a participant and teacher to many short adult education courses. I can state unequivocally that the transfer of knowledge associated with your professor course is the best I have experienced. It is truly world class. In addition you made it a really enjoyable 7.5 hours.
My wife and I took your "One minute" Thursday night classes in Sept. I took your "PT" class 9-26-11. I also subscribed to your web site. Thought you ought to know:
After the first class and using the DMI indicator we exited all our ’buy and hold’ stocks because they all had neg DMI. Good thing too cause they continue to decline.
Thought you ought to know:
I have been following the Deans List and Watch List and have profited from the stocks/ETF’s on them.
Thought you ought to know:
I continue to read and re-read the slides and use the indicators to enter and exit position trades using money management and scaling.
Thought you ought to know:
The fees for your educational classes were the best money I ever spent
Seriously .......Thank you.
Last night was another great experience ! Thanks. I particularly enjoy you
bias to simplicity. In today’s market environment the benefits of long
term investing are/have been usurped by short term technical strategies that
most individual investors have little, if any, knowledge about. Not only
have you brought us strategies to..... get us in the game but...you have
made it simple - with practice of course !
My friend in Lafayette who signed up for the website is thoroughly
enjoying it also, and as you have mentioned earlier, the price is
ridiculous for what you offer. He subscribes to the aaaaaaaa Trader,
nnnnnnn and at least two or three others paying your annual fee per
month or more. He has shared with me some of nnnnnnn daily comments
and as you probably know they are a mere snippet of what you provide.
I look forward each day to logging in and checking for new ideas.
Your updates and guidance thru the weekend and this week have been awesome !
Thought I’d drop you an email and tell you that thanks to your 3
indicators, I did not panic and sell RGLD this morning (only 1/3 was red).
Old me would have. Instead, I waited and offloaded a few shares
bought on a dip yesterday once it reached overbought RSI(2) on the
60’s and still hold a core position.
Perhaps I’m learning?
