Day Trading Course 


If you're eager to learn more high-level professional day trading approaches, then this is the package for you.

In day trading you need an "EDGE" over other traders. That "edge" is something you see, and others don't - and that's exactly what this course is designed to give you: an "Invisible Edge."

In this course you will learn:

  • How to see support/resistance that others don't.
  • How to see key turning points that others don't.
  • How to use inter-market analysis for unique trading opportunites others may miss.

  • How to use a super-powerful intra-day LEADING INDICATOR almost every amateur ignores.
  • How to choose the absolute PERFECT time interval for your day trading charts for any market.
  • Which "internal indicators" to use.

You'll also get Advanced Trading Techniques:

  • Exactly how to trade 4 chart patterns you were told NOT to trade in Foundations 1 and 2.
  • The 2 most powerful techniques for trading GAPS (completely different than the gap trading techniques in my Swing Trading Course).

  • How to use a lagging indicator and leading indicator together for an amazingly powerful 1-2 combination that can revolutionize your trading over night. This one technique alone can be worth 10x the investment of this course.

Top Dog Trading Custom Indicators

The Top Dog Trading 5-Energy Methodology doesn't require any special or proprietary indicators. It's a simple system that uses a couple of the most common indicators that are available on most any charting software.

However, to help you read the trading and setup signals easier, I've created some custom indicators that:

  • Color code the indicators.
  • Automate the wave counts.
  • Automatically draw "Second Chance Patterns" on your charts.
  • Automatically draw Fibonacci levels.
  • Automatically draw Floor Trader Pivots.
  • Automatically draw significant swing highs and lows.
  • Mark important candlestick patterns.
  • Objectively color up trends and down trends.
  • You can customize many aspects of the indicators for your personal preference.
  • Everything updates in real-time on the hard right edge of your chart.

The bottom line is that these custom indicators create CLARITY in seeing the chart setups, providing you to trade with more CONFIDENCE.

Periodically I offer a very small group of dedicated students the opportunity to get personal 1-on1 coaching by me to help them take their trading to the next level and customize a trading approach that fits them.

I review their current trading plan and results, and then work with them to customize a strategy that will fit their personality and financial situation.

We work on both the psychological aspects of trading as well as the strategic technical analysis tactics designed specifically for them.




If you don't need a month of personal coaching (see above for that service) but would just like a one-time  consultation with Dr. Barry Burns, it's now available on a limited basis.

The cost is $1,000/hour (billed in 30 minute increments, paid in advance, with a 30 minute minimum).

"... By the way, your course #1 was the cheapest course I have taken in trading but it was the best course."

- Ted H.



"Very logical and methodical. Easy to understand. Best instruction ever - regardless of cost!"

- Carol E.



"Just a quick note to thank you so much for the mentoring over the past few weeks. I have spent over $30K on books and courses in the last 2 years and your training is by far the best I have taken.

My trading is now more focused and precise and I have clear and well defined rules which allow me to react more appropriately to what I see on the chart. For the first time I really feel that I am trading with purpose and direction and have a better understanding of price action.

... Just one thing though and I hope you don't mind me feeding this back: I don't think you are charging enough - Seriously! I have paid and would expect to pay this kind of money for simple e-books and mini trading strategies which in my experience have not worked ... I would have thought 2-3 times what you are currently charging would not be unrealistic for new customers and would still provide excellent value ..."
