"Hi Dr Barry,
Great course, great methodology, great success! It really works, I love
- Joe G.
I recently purchased three courses of your (FC1/2 and swing trading intermediate
course) and not suffice to say, the information and presentation is fabulous. I am working with
some professional traders after paying 9000 $ and what you provide is better than so far what I
have got from them. Awesome work."
- Rahul M.
"Dear Dr. Burns,
First, I want to thank you so very much for creating these courses and for
generously sharing your precise and repeatable trading methodology. I bought Courses 1, 2, the
Intermediate day trading course, and the custom indicators. I was really reluctant to purchase
another course and shopped around a lot. Your courses are an incredible value. The total package
cost less and has at least 20 times the information in them than another course I bought from a
different company. The other course I bought didn't even have a clear methodology for entries and
exits. Your courses are very dense and I have reviewed them several times. I have been learning
trading for over 1 year and your courses have really put it all together for me. I also enjoy your
extremely clear, congenial, and low key training style."

"You're truly a treasure!!! And I say this as a Rehab Contractor. With all that
goes with that. Few trading trainers answer question so gracefully and completely, as you, and
treat those who have already paid, with the same priority as those who are potential clients. And
your responses are same day responses in most cases. Thanks, and I'm a client for life! (you may
use this testimony anytime you wish, I wish I would've know about you before I spent so much money
- Steve S.
"Before I continue with my question, I would like to say that your Foundation 1 and
2 courses are absolutely wonderful! I studied the material inside and out and have been
religiously applying your methods. I am in amazement of how much of a profit I have
recognized as a beginner, both in up and down markets. I owe it all to you. I take the
1 or 2 quality, high probability trades you mentioned so often in your material and as long as I
follow your rules, I turn a profit."
- Abraham T., CPA.
"I have spent a considerable amount of money over the past few years investing in
education and your course(s) have been the best value for money by a 10 fold factor. I love what i
have learnt through you, and will be supporting your program indefinitely. Unfortunately, in the
here and now, I have followed a lot of erroneous advise from other sources and my trading account
has suffered to the point, where I have to focus on " little by little" restoration.
You have a phoenominal attitude and spirit, and I like that, as well as the best program out
Go well - you deserve to prosper.

"I have completed Dr. Barry Burns' five day video trading course which was very
well presented, easy to understand and most importantly addressed the detail which is required to
be a successful trader. His trading patterns were specific to the "bar" and included precise entry
points and stop-losses. I have attended forex courses and studied oscillators for many years but
still I found this course very helpful for trading forex.
- Chris D. MBA."
"... I wish to thank you for your efforts on course 1 & 2. They are the best I
have come across in my trading since 1992. They are clear and full of so much information that it
is necessary to watch them over and over until the info. becomes ingrained and automatically
part of your thinking.
I have been using much of it in conjunction with my own style and methods and it has increased not
only my win/loss but the win sizes. Thanks-feel free to use this in an ad. I think your
courses are great."
- Rainer W.
"... I have spent much more money in other courses and
subscription letters and invested a lot of time to filter out the garbage and trying to find
something valuable in it. To me, your courses are like lighting up an obscure room. Before, I was
more guessing about where to enter a position and where to exit, now it is daylight clear.
I thank God that He brought you in my way early enough, I have read somewhere that one trader (and
book author) finally found his trading method after reading more than 150 books. I consider myself
lucky to find your courses so early, I have read about 10 books on trading. I won’t stop reading,
that’s for sure, but the problem with the books I read is that they mostly provide pieces of the
puzzle and not the whole piece ...
And the Swing Trade Course comes as a delicious dessert after
a delightful dinner. I never dreamed to find in one single place so much and valuable info. I
honestly say that I have received much more than I was expecting, even more than it was advertised.
I highly recommend your courses to anybody who is looking for finding his/her way in successful
A big THANK YOU for your great work!

"Your course is the best I have seen. It is the bible to me
To learn day trading, I went to three schools, four chat rooms, and more than 100 lectures in the
last 12 months. I must say that I found your teaching programs are the best. If I have found yours
at the beginning, I would save nearly ten thousand dollars."

It is the TopDog structure and
training, including the Daily Logs which have made the difference. The difference is not only in
ME, as we spoke about on the phone recently, but the indicators and HOW TO PROPERLY READ THEM are

still feel composed and able to understand just what may occur because of my position, and usually
even come out with a win.

small systems, and another well-presented and good course with a few systems in it, but none
of them can match your presentations. Your courses, systems, and training are more thorough,
balanced, and cover all aspects of trading - and at a small fraction of the cost of the
others. I truly wish I had discovered you first ...

say is Foundations Courses 1 & 2 are the bread and butter; BUT your video newsletter is
the "icing on the cake" and anyone not using it is really missing out on both accelerating
their learning curve and improving their trading skills.

gained so far seems monumental. Your rules are fairly black and white and makes it easy to identify
the trend and the bigger picture.

out immensely already and I have no regrets with my purchase. You are an excellent teacher

"Dear Dr Barry,
OK. I ordered and received access to your course at
the weekend, thank you. Devoured it one sitting. Now on third viewing.
I've been trading now for about 2.5yrs. Almost all on
demo; starting in the seedy world of FX, now graduated to ES mini. opened and nearly blown 1 small
account trying to trade divergences on tick charts. Been back on demo for a while now.
Then your course came along (on recommendation from a

delivery is calm and confident — which inspires the same in me. Your advice is real-world and
pragmatic, rather than being riddled with seductive promises of overnight wealth. Your explanation
of how to use the [XXX] for cycle identification is definitely the missing piece of the puzzle for
me... Wave counting based on cycles and practical price action — superb.
I'm still fighting the need to keep a log, but that

that is anchored in reality and practicality. No wasted words. No exotic or tempremental

Firstly I have to say how
impressed I am with the content of the courses. I have studied another course that has cost me
thousands, but yours is sooooooo much better. I love the video format, along with the PDF files to

plans, the money management...you've included everything, and I'm feeling at last like the puzzle

"My interest in learning how to trade Forex
started about 1 ½ years ago. I have spent no less then 3000 hrs in studying courses and
practicing by getting up early in the mornings, staying up late during the evenings and
studying over the weekends. Along with holding down a full time 7 to 5 job!
After trying several demo trading accounts and
several courses along the way I would like to believe I have come a long ways and found a
personal trading strategy that works for me. Unfortunately, I had picked up some poor habits
along the way that only added complexity and confusion in my trading style.

"[The video newsletter] is far

resource that I have found. Very complimentary to many of the texts that I have been reading over the
past 1-2 yrs. (particularly Link, Farley, Elder, and Steenbarger's books.) I save each video after
I watch them, and often review them time and again. Repetition has been the key to my medical
education, residency, board prep... and certainly learning market dynamics.

WOW. Another great
I have finished for the first
time, the “Swing Trading” course. There were many great ideas in this
course. I would like to comment on three areas which I appreciated.
First, I would say, is the way you
covered volume. This is a difficult concept, however you explained it in a
way that I was able to grasp the idea and use it immediately.
Secondly, I appreciated the
psychology of trading that you weave throughout the course. In each course this has been an
immense help to me in “not losing”. And staying out of questionable trades is just as
important and getting in to good trades ...
Then the fact that I have the
course on my computer to review again and again is a great benefit. The first time through I
picked up many ideas, however I know that there is a lot more in the course and I will get more
each time I review it. I have “Dr. Barry Burns” on my computer and at my beckon
