New Setups To Watch

Great overall service for those interested in learning

I have been an investor for 10 years, and a part time swing trader for 2 years. While the majority of my portfolio sits in long term investments, I have clearly come to appreciate the merits of technical analysis to time market entries for maximum gain, and minimal risk.
About 2 years ago, I carved out a portion of my portfolio to allocate to swing trading opportunities.

During this time I have had moderate success, primarily buying dips in uptrend stocks, where they have hit support levels, setting stops below support and crossing my fingers.

About 5 months ago, I joined artoftrading with the goal of increasing my understanding of chart analysis, and more importantly the 'art' of timing the market for entry into a position.

Stewie is obviously an experienced trader, with a keen sense of when to enter the market. He does not enter positions lightly, or on the chart merits alone, rather he carefully views market dynamics to minimize risk.

His guidance, experience, and STRONG discipline has significantly increased my confidence on my own personal trades. On top of that I have done very well on his suggested trades, following his lead, but more importantly learning along the way.

Stewie does not put your hard earned capital at risk, and while not every trade is successful, I cannot point to a single entry in the last 5 months where logic or risk / reward was not in our favor. Really, what more can you ask for ??

The knowledge gain is invaluable if you are interested in building confidence to do this yourself and not just a looking for a buy / sell alert service. While I am not able to join the chat room often, the times I have, I have been quite impressed with the experience and guidance offered by fellow members.

If you are like me, I'd strongly suggest you subscribe to

10 New Stocks To Watch Next Week

Make sure to check ALL earnings dates. Personally, i DO NOT hold thru earnings. It's way too risky. Much better to wait and see how the stock reacts to the numbers and decide on entry afterwards knowing you have the wind in your back, rather leave it up to "luck".

Trade em well folks!

Art Of Trading Video: Discussing How To Trade A "BULL FLAG" Pattern

More than just stock picks and email alerts!

I joined Art of Trading a couple of months ago and since then my knowledge and confidence has increased dramatically. Stewie is a great trader and truly wants his subscribers to be successful. He shares his insight with no ego and provides great technical analysis of his trades.

There is also a real 'team' feeling in his chat room as we all work together, no bashing or competition....we are all there to become better traders and make more $$. The members in the room all have their own style and surely you will find someone that shares yours. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

If you want to become a better trader and gain better capital/risk mgmt. his service is second to none.

Stewie you Rock!


Great value for money

I have been with Stewie for about 4 months now, and it has been great. Not only have I made money through his calls, more importantly I have become a better trader. Stewie puts in a lot of effort to ensure that his service is top notch, and is always looking to improve the service he provides. Throughout the trading day, he sends constant reminders to subscribers to keep good trading habits, and keeps us out of over-trading when the markets get choppy. All in all, I highly recommend this service.

Art Of Trading Video: Discussing How To Trade The "Holy Grail" Pattern

The Art of Trading is my best learning experience!

I joined The Art of Trading a couple of months ago looking for education and am very happy that i did. Stewie is a great teacher who puts a lot of time and effort into his trading service. He is always quick to respond to questions i might have about the market or an individual stock. The chatroom is full of good traders who look out for each other and helps each other make profitable trades. My confidence as a trader is quickly growing and i am now comfortable finding and taking my own trades along with Stewie's alerts. As far as value, even tho i started out trading very small size , i have made enough profit from Stewie's alerts to pay for the next two years of his service . What could be a better value than that ! Highly recommend The Art of Trading. Thank you Stewie !!!

New Setups To Watch

The past 2 weeks, the market has been in a real funky mood and really hasn't been giving us much in terms of good quality bullish bases and traction has been pretty much non existent but today some decent setups have popped up on the scans(finally). Let's hope these actually stay firm and gain some traction here.

As always, check ALL your stocks earnings dates! I never hold any stock thru earnings and most importantly, RESPECT your stop losses.

Remember: Don't fall in love with a stock: They do not love you. Trade it accordingly to a set plan and stick to that plan, win or lose.

Best of luck!

ART OF TRADING Success Story!!

Ladies and gentlemen,

Meet Laura!! Also known as 'LAUREN' in the chat room. She's the "deadly assassin" from the chat room!! She's often silent but when she speaks, it's best you listen! She walked into the ART OF TRADING over 1 year ago as a complete newbie!! Today, she is by far one of the most improved traders i work with! She's extremely skillful and careful with her entries and exits! Enters and exits with extreme finesse that rivals any wall street pro! She often uses my setups, NYC's lists and/or her own! Her charting skills and talent to spot good setups has sky rocketed recently! She's sets the alerts and wait patiently for the trades to come to her! Alerts pops on her screen, she calls it out in the chat room: For example: "SHZ $5.50 alert" and places the trade and she is PATIENT! She'll ride a trade for a few days if need be and is NOT greedy. You'll often see her book her gains quickly and never brags. She calls out ALL her trades in the chat room. Humble, honest, sweet and smart!

Here's what she accomplished in a market that is very stingy right now!

"Hey Stewie,

I had a great week!

My account is 5% bigger and only in a week. That is my monthly target!

You can be proud of what you and guys in the chat room have made of me :)

Have a nice weekend


This is so inspirational and you bet we are very proud of you Laura! Congratulations!

ART OF TRADING Chat Room Etiquette

HI guys,

As the service grows and we get more and more members i find it important to remind newer and older members for that matter about the importance of keeping the chat room an important learning tool for ALL! Believe it or not, most of you will do most of your learning and you will become a much more complete and skillful trader by hanging out in the chat room! My confidence as a trader has sky rocketed because of lurking and being around other traders and listening and watching them work thru good and bad periods. I learned the most in my earlier years when i used to frequent at the time a free chat room at . The chat room has since shut down pretty much but i will NEVER forget my experiences there as i met some truly skillful traders and learned so much from them. My confidence exploded while hanging out in that chat room!

Anyway, I want to keep a VERY high standard and make the ART OF TRADING chat room the BEST chat room in the business! I know many of you think that this chat room is awesome but i want to make sure we ALL work to keep the chat room operational, educational and a powerful tool for veteran and new traders!!

How can we do that? Well, it's simple but we ALL need to work as a team and remember we are a TEAM!! Your contribution matters! We win together and we lose together. WE ARE A TEAM!!

So having said that:

Rule 1 :

We are ALL team mates: We all must have each others backs. I can assure you that this chat room has a support system between traders that no other chat room can compete with! This is something that i am MOST proud of! If a fellow trader needs help, we HELP HIM/HER! No questions asked! There is no question 'too dumb"! Remember, when we ALL were "NEW" at this and we all felt embarrassed to ask the 'simple' or 'newbie' questions?? remember?? I am sure you do! At the ART OF TRADING chat room, there are NO SILLY questions!! Ask and you will find someone willing to help! WE ALL GOT EACH OTHER'S BACKS.


Always respect other traders. Look, we are all different and we all have different styles and backgrounds but NEVER disrespect another fellow trader's style or strategy as we all try and battle thru this crazy business. NO bragging or showing off, NO "i told so", or anything like that! Look, no one will like you when you do something like that. It does not make you look smart or a good trader. It just makes you look arrogant! No one likes a arrogant person. So stay HUMBLE please.


Always give other traders your EXACT entries and exits! Whether you are "right" or "wrong", that's NOT the issue here. We all wanna learn and maybe even profit from calls that you make! Nothing feels better than sharing a good trade with a fellow member and he/she thanks YOU for the exact ENTRY and EXIT! It feels great to help a fellow trader out. WIN or LOSE, it doesn't matter. The important thing is that you are helping out in MANY WAYS when you post your entries and exits. Try and give an EXACT price and EXIT of your trades.

When you post a trade: Don't just post it and not follow up on it. People wanna know, if you bought AAPL at 330.00. People wanna know if you sold and what price? People will RESPECT YOU win or lose!! The only time people will not 'respect' is if you do not follow up on your losing trades. Look, we all know this is TRADING! In trading, EVERY SINGLE person WILL see a loss and many losses even!! If you do not talk about your losses, people will lose faith in you and not trust you any more! Be a gentleman/woman and please mention YOUR trade entries and exits because WANT to learn from you! WIN or LOSE< that is NOT the issue. We all respect you. ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT!


PLEASE no bickering, negative ranting or arguing guys! (thankfully this is VERY RARE here!!)
Look we are all different people/traders but we all need to be respectful of each other! Be yourself, crack a joke if you wish, give feedback on a trade, etc etc BUT REMEMBER: you gotta do in a RESPECTFUL WAY! WE ARE ALL adults here! Help keep the chat room vibepositive at all times!

REMEMBER: WE ARE A TEAM!! A team wins together and losses together!!

But at the ART OF TRADING we are a WINNING TEAM! ;-)

I hope this makes sense guys and i look forward to learning, earning and growing with ALL of you!!

Thanks for listening!

good night and god bless!!


Member feedback:

"Great email and great coaching. I haven't used the chat room yet (new member) but after reading that email I think I will try to drop in. Actually very inspirational."


Well said. I am definitely learning when I can be in the chat room. Mostly listening (lurking) but really enjoy the comraderie that exists among your members.

Keep up the good work and good trading."


"Love you man! You are always so positive, patient and giving. Thank you for all you do and for teaching, sharing and giving.

The payoff for you is coming and it'll be in a much larger proportion to what you give.

Stay well my friend!"
