"I'm retired so you could say I'm a full-time trader. I love trading and it does provide a major source of income. I started with Mohan in about 2003. He's terribly precise on his forecasts for the following day. If he says the market will turn at 1206.25, 80% of the time it does. And that's some pretty valuable insight. But when he's wrong in his forecast, he has the High-Five that will tell you he's wrong. So that keeps you from getting hurt. Typically my swing trades last 10-30 minutes, and I look to make $100 per contract. So that's 2 points… 2 points a trade, 4-5 trades a day. And I trade 5 days a week. Then, two or three times a month you'll hit a trend day. Those are nice. You stay in all day and might make 10 or 20 points before you're done. Maybe even more. But that doesn't happen too often. The main thing I like about Mohan himself is that he's a very very honest man. And he presents things as they are."
"I'm not particularly a day trader, as such. So I use Mohan's forecasts more like a weather report. If he sees conditions are favorable for what I anticipate the market will do, I know I have a good chance it's going to work out. I trade on three different time scales. And Mohan's methods, the High-Five in particular, are invaluable for all kinds of trading– daytrading, swing, and position trading too. When the DOW is at 14000 and the S&P500 is 1500, and you think, goodness gracious this is a bit high. That's when I look for a position trade. Here in the UK, they don't talk about the stock market much. So, when you hear BBC saying stocks are at an all-time high, and everything is rosy, you know it's time to go short. A trade like that can last several months. Then I do a bit of day-trading, which tends to be fading the gap; where I could be in and out in a couple hours. And my swing trades, I'll be in anywhere from three days to a couple weeks. What I like is that Mohan doesn't hedge. He comes out and says precisely what he thinks the market is going to do. And generally it does. I tie what he sees in with what I see. And when all things come together, it gives you a very high probability trade."
"I win about 90% of my trades, I think… maybe even a little higher. It wasn't always that way. The first couple years, before I found Mohan on the Internet, I was losing money. But I knew there were traders out there making money. So I thought, if they could do it I could do it too. And, for the past seven years, ever since I've been following Mohan, I've been doing great. I like to scale in and out. I'll start with 2-4 contracts. Then, if it moves 3 points against me, I'll scale in 2 more contracts. When it gets back up to my original entry I scale out 2 contracts. So I've lowered my average cost and still have the core position. Sometimes I end up buying and selling a couple times. But I'm always pretty confident that price will come back to Mohan's pit bull number. His numbers are generally right on. Trading in Japan is kind of interesting because we don't watch the US media. In Japan they see the US market and talk about market manipulation and say things that Americans would call conspiracy theory. But it's a fact of life. The markets have changed over the years because of high frequency trading. And now the Fed seems to be getting more and more involved in US markets. But, why worry about it? It's all just part of the game. I could easily trade for a living, and when I move back to Hawaii I will. But the way my visa is, I have to keep a job in Japan. So I trade in the evening, pull at least 4 points from the market, and call it a day."
"After selling my construction company eight years ago, I was too young for social security so I decided to take up trading. Determined to learn everything there was to know, and to be successful, I joined several online trading rooms… even with people down on the floor in Chicago. But none of it panned out the way I wanted. I was ready to hang it up when I ran across Mohan. I can tell you, Mohan's way of looking at the market, and his approach to trading, is completely different from what everybody else does. And he turned my trading right around. Then, when my wife started hearing cheers coming from the room where I trade, she got interested and wanted to do it too. Before I knew it, she was just as darn good as me! We're having a lot of fun trading together and our success rate is around 80%. Sometimes we watch the market together and other times we're more like a tag-team, where one of us is trading and the other is doing errands or whatever. Mohan has definitely made the difference for us. 2010 is our best year yet and Mohan is the source of our success. There's no reason to ever quit trading. We enjoy it. We're successful. And I just don't see any reason to ever quit."
"I rose very high and very far in the retail world, and made huge salaries. And I got used to a pretty expensive lifestyle. But times are changing; business is getting much more streamline, and the $300,000 jobs are getting fewer and farther between. Meanwhile, the market crash, divorce, and a bunch of other things put a hurting on my nest egg. So, a few years back I decided to try my hand at trading. And I subscribed to just about every investment newsletter out there. Not only that, I contacted many of the writers and even became personal friends with a number of them. Mohan, and his way of looking at the market, has always stood out from all the rest. But now that difference is like day and night. Because he's still making money and the others aren't. The way the market is rigged these days, countless newsletter writers and fund managers, who were once major players and really knew their stuff, have closed up shop because their systems just don't work any more. But Mohan is still standing. The normal ebb and flow of the market is gone. But his methodology can deal with that. He's still making dead accurate calls and lots of money. Sometimes I'll risk 2-3 points and look to make 8-10. But mostly I hit 4points, which is $200 per contract, and get out. $200-$300 a day per contract is a very comfortable thing to do. I don't trade all the time, because I still enjoy doing consulting work and sometimes I'm just too busy. But between consulting gigs I always fall back on trading to keep the cash flow going. Trading with Mohan has been wonderful for my peace of mind. It's my security blanket."
The TCF setups have proven to me to be an invaluable trading tool. Identifying and trading on the setups has give me the confidence to hold on for more points instead of always scalping and letting the market dictate the way I trade. By combining the TCF setups with the high 5 and risk management the system teaches, I have all the tools I need to identify profitable trading opportunities.

I wanted to let you know that
you are succeeding in educating us traders with your morning calls and
"Ask Mohan" updates-- I have been trading stocks and
options for a number of years, and have been successful... but these s&p
futures are an entirely new animal. I had been previously using
a different method for trading the futures, mostly taking a
"stop-in" approach at b/o and b/d's, trying to capture only
2-3pts. There has been a really big mental block for me to trade your TCF
setups, but after being a subscriber now for about 2 months, I am starting to
be more confident that your setups really do work! I hope you continue making
the morning calls; if your goal is to educate, you are doing just that!

The question is simple - how on earth do you stay so professional at this level
of activity to produce the Morning Call every day, know when to back off and
when to be full on, how to always keep reminding us what to look for at the
right times and to endeavor to soak up this attitude ourselves? Believe me it
does rub off and are we ever grateful!
After 3 years of ultra-green beginner learning and getting the goofy mistakes
out of the way, I'm finally getting the message and catching myself before I
do stupid things rather than after - big improvement!
I now have wide experience of many areas and orthogonal styles of trading from
Elliott to Wyckoff and many more but can honestly say that the one single dimension
that has made the most difference to me personally is you and TCF - thanks a

Subject: Thank you
I have been trading futures now for nearly 7 years. Like you I had been through
a lot but unlike you I had never come across such a brilliant filter as The
High Five. The TCF setups are so true to Life I mean to S&P nature that
its hard to believe with your retooling they will ever stop working.
Larry Williams whose seminars I had attended in the past, had nothing similar
or even close to the power of the TCF. As I am not someone brilliant or exceptional
and may not had the brains for Larry's teachings, but I am very happy to have
survived to the day I subscribed to your Morning Call and that's already made
a Hu...uge change to my trading. Thank you!
I am too far away Down Under in Australia and to my regret not able to attend
either of your seminars this year. But I am planning to reward myself on the
next opportunity no matter what. I have been everywhere in this "small"
world but your Seminar is the most desirable place on earth I wish to be.
It may sound pompous I know, but you would know is true because trading is
not only a job its addiction so talking about the Market and reading it occupies
the best part of me as of any other Trader.
Thanks Mohan and God bless you.

Mohan, I read your two most recent "Ask Mohan" updates and I had a
little laugh to myself. Been there...done that. (lol!) I've
been following your daily updates since July 1st, and I can say that although I
don't know the market's in's and out's nearly as well as you do, I am
"getting" your Morning Calls now. What you say is true, it
takes at least a couple of months to feel confident and know the set-ups by
memory. At first, it may look very confusing - at least it did to
me. I thought I would never be able to remember everything you were
throwing at me. But it eventually sank in and now I am much more confident,
and growing more each day. Even so, I always have the Trading Handbook
right next to my computer on my desk at all times and refer to it often.
Also, I always have my yellow pad all ready to go, usually prepped the night
before if I get the new numbers before going to bed. I try to be as well
prepared as! I can before the market opens so I can sit back and watch what the
market will deliver for the day. I also learned from my "early
days" (a month ago) that running errands during the day is probably not a
good idea if I haven't seen a trade setup through fruition. (duh!) Now,
on most days, I'm glued to the computer watching each tick through the close,
even if I closed out my trade setup, just so I can experience the minute by
minute action along with the High 5 and Trailblazer. I then print the
chart for the day and attach it together with my "yellow pad"
sheet and your morning call. I write some brief notes of what I though
were the trade setups for the day so I can compare them to your recap the
next morning. For the most part, I'm getting it!
I consider you my pro-trader "business coach", reminding me from
time to time "what-to-do", "how-to-do",
"when-to-do" and putting it to me straight. To some, your daily
ongoing reminders, some of them quite firm, of what this business is all
about can be repetitious, but not to me! Keep it coming and tell us like
it is! Your "tough love" approach is the best for those of
us who think they "got it", but don't, quite yet. Thank you,
thank you, thank you!

I just have
to let you know, your Morning Call is the best thing that has happened to
my trading. For five years, I have been researching, studying, analyzing and
trading the markets. I've read numerous books, subscribed to all kinds of
services, taken trading courses and traded a lot of different strategies. None
of it compares to what I have learned in the 2 1/2 short months with you. Your
Morning Call has taken my trading to a whole new level.
importantly you have provided me a plan and a direction each day. The rest is
purely mechanical and, of course, psychological. I'm amazed at how much I have
grown mentally and for me that is the whole game.
Who needs an
alarm clock! I'm so jazzed about reading the Morning Call that I'm up
automatically (Sometimes way to early!).
I'm sorry I
won't be able to attend your upcoming seminars, but do hope you'll come visit
the Northeast soon. I would love to meet you.

I imagine that your email is filled daily with lots of notes of appreciation
for what you do. But, I thought that one more couldn't hurt, so this is just a
short note to tell you how grateful I am to be able to learn from you.
Thank you so much for the reports that were sent to me yesterday when I

My husband and I are hoping to attend your seminar that you mentioned
having in the spring. He has problems with his eye retinas and the doctors tell
him that he could go blind at some point in the future. He has always been
a good provider, but now it's my turn to learn how to provide in case he gets
to the point where he can no longer do his job.
I don't believe there are any 'accidents' in life and that when
we cross paths with many people, we take notice when we are so fortunate
to find one of them to be a very special 'teacher'.
In trading, I have learned a lot...the hard way, and had some
success and some failure...but I still have very much to learn, and I am just
so thrilled to find something that makes good sense. Your information is the
best thing I've ever run across. I hope that you are aptly rewarded for all
