"First off, I always wondered whether testimonials posted on websites are genuine or, conversely, artificial constructions designed merely to sell a product or make a quick buck. As I find myself writing one here I am confident that all those who have benefited from Steve's wisdom and trend following mentoring feel as fortunate as I do to have come across Steve's site.
Aside from the simplicity and quantifiable returns of Steve's trading system which speak for themselves, I have been most impressed and grateful for Steve's constant attention to detail, his patience, and his willingness to engage to help clarify issues as I aim to become a better and more well-informed trader. No question I have posed to Steve has been too remedial to warrant his time and detailed response. In view of my nascent trading stage, the confidence that Steve instills in both application of the trading methodology and the ability to reach out to him as issues or concerns arise has been of great comfort. I am confident that I am on the way to becoming a better and profitable trader and I know that Steve has played, and will continue to play, a material role in that process.
Thank you Steve for all your time and attention, and I look forward to the day in the profitable future when we will grab another beverage in a nice hotel lounge and reflect on these 'early days' in my trading journey." Raman, Geneva
"I've been with Steve for over a year now. I believe that having a mentor is key to becoming one of the 10% of traders that continue to make money. Its not just about being given the tools to see what to buy and what to sell, its learning the process so that it all goes together. Mindset plays a huge role in trading - having a plan is not enough, you need to have the right mindset. The mentor is there to guide you and almost reassure you through tough times that you are trading correctly but where the conditions are not right. Equally, he is there to ground you when things are good and you might be taking sub-optimal trades!
I had been trading for several years prior to meeting Steve but in the last year he has helped me with the psychology of how it all goes together. The fact I made just under 100% within the year I had a mentor is only very minor in comparison to the knowledge I have gained." Chris, Hampshire
"After trading many different systems long term, short term, swing trading, options, commodities and Forex it has taken me quite awhile to work out there is no Holy Grail! The closest thing that suits my trading personality is Trend Following with good money management and risk control.
Finding Steve’s website “TheTrendFollower” cemented in my mind that I was on the right path. Steve’s e-book “The Trading Triangle” sets out all the trading rules, position sizing and risk management for a successful system. You need patience, discipline and the right mindset to become profitable in the market and the mentoring programme keeps you on the right track.
Steve is down to earth, passionate and a genuine nice guy who is a very knowledgeable Trend Follower. His mentoring programme is full of like-minded traders all striving to achieve the same goal…Profit! Highly Recommended." - Richie, Sydney, Australia
"Just spent 6 hours 1 to 1 with Steve in front of the PC. The system is much clearer and manageable now everything has been set up and explained. Numerous successful trades, and some lost and missed ones, were analysed and explained along with my numerous questions. With my limited computer knowledge I could not have set up the charts myself. Everything from risk to entry to stops makes sense.
Time to go live!!" - Paul, Lincolnshire
"Just reading back over my notes after yesterday's marathon 1-2-1 session with Steve and I'm convinced that I made the right decision signing up for his mentoring programme. I had read the e-book but Steve helped clarify one or two issues I was struggling with and being able to work through the scans with his input was invaluable. I'd highly recommend this programme to any budding trend followers who are looking to take the next step in their trading journey." - Keith, London
“I was delighted to find Steve's website, similar to the trading style I was pursuing- trend following with stocks. Reading through the site I soon realized this was a great "resource" and particularly appreciated Steve's blog, especially his reminders (often when the markets are going through a volatile time) of the basics and principles of trading and the need sometimes to step back and look at the longer term charts.
I did not hesitate to buy his e-book The Trading Triangle and can thoroughly recommend it! Buying this e-book is a great opportunity to view the system, strategy and mindset of a successful trader.
Some weeks after buying the e-book Steve sent me an "Addendum" to the book via email, which to me, shows his integrity and commitment to his customers, unlike so many on the internet!
Everything you will need to be a successful trader is in the e-book: money/risk and self management along with the nuts and bolts of Steve's "system", which he actually trades himself with very impressive results.
Also everything you do not need is left out, keeping things clear and to the point and written in an easy to read style.
Steve has obviously put in a lot of hard work and discipline to achieve this and generously offers to share this along with his other services at a very reasonable cost! Great Value!
For this I thank you Steve.EXCELLENT. I look forward to the 1-2-1 training we have arranged !" - Ross, Surrey
"Having just completed my first year on the mentoring program, I am happy to say the I have renewed for a second year without hesitation. Put bluntly for anyone looking to make money out of the markets I highly recommend you contact Trader Steve.
Regarding the system itself, I have always been impressed at its simplicity and ability to catch trends in stocks, indices and commodities . However as is the way with trend following most of the battle to make money in the markets comes from the demons within rather than the technicalities of when to buy and sell. This is when having a mentor like Steve really pays dividends (or maybe I should say capital gains :) ) Having Steve to talk to not only helps in detailing the current state of the indices and individual shares but more importantly someone to confide in when things are not going your way or are working for you. Steve has very much been there and done that so knows the physiological turmoils faced by a new trader.
This is not to say his continued efforts to enhance or improve the original system are neglected. Earlier this year Steve published an addendum to the system to help better control and limit losses when a trade doesn't go your way. This continued commitment is reflected by Steve's willingness to publish this addendum to all out-standing holders of the Trading Triangle without question.
Trader Steve's continued support, willingness to help, frequent twitter updates and useful commentary have been of great help during the last year. Happily signing up to a second year of mentoring is testament to this." Mark, Lincolnshire
"The Trading Triangle and follow up addendum are a thorough explanation of a simple system that works for trading. I truly appreciate the simplicity that Steve laid out and his willingness to share so much of his hard work. Steve has taken tried and true methods of trend trading and compiled them to create an impressive system. I came to "thetrendfollower.com" blog after reading about Nicolas Darvas. Quickly I reread about the turtles and discovered Richard Donchian. I have yet to see such a simple system that works so well! Thanks for your efforts Steve." - Jake Jones
"Happy I stumbled onto Steve's blog because it truly convinced me about applying trend following on stocks. The passion and knowledge Steve breathes about trading in general and trend following in special is simply great! One of the things I like most about Steve is his transparancy. No secrets here. Steve trades his own system and you can learn from the master himself. That sounds like a pretty fair deal to me..
About the Trading Triangle. The title makes that much sense. The book explains in three major topics (hence the trading triangle) how to trade stocks with a sound trend following approach. Short and to the point, no unnecessary things (this is a great quality). Trend following in a beautiful and pure form adjusted to suit the stock markets.
The book covers all aspects but because I'm not an experienced trader I'm going to attend the mentoring programme. Will let you know my experience in the near future.
Regards and all the best!" William (Netherlands)
"It's very rare I read something on the internet and think that the author will be useful and is not just another person trying to sell me something that doesn't help me but line his own pockets!
I came across your website and was really interested to find another follower trading stocks, I downloaded your e-book and was amazed at how similar we trade. I know trend trading isn't anything new but I came up with my system by myself by just looking at hundreds and hundreds of charts and seeing what worked in the past etc. Your book is a very good read and would set any beginner on the right path." Chris, Hampshire
"I have long been an admirer of those who can trade a trend following system. I like the idea that all you need to know is technical analysis without worrying about any fundamentals. However I don’t have confidence to trade such a system because of the relatively low winning percentage (typical of a trend following system). After reading Steve’s e-book, I believe I can finally apply this to my own trading.
In his e-book Steve not only spells out the exact rules, but also explains the rationale behind them. As a novice I now know exactly how to trade a trend following system. Should I ever want to tweak the rules to fit my personal needs, I’ll know what to look for. Steve is also very responsive in answering my questions. In short, I’d say Steve’s e-book has bridged the fear gap for me to apply trend following in my trading." Chris, Hong Kong
"This (book) is a great resource for new and old investors. Not because it gives something new that has not been discovered... but because it explains in simple terms what trend following is and how to use it effectively. It guides you towards the right mindset required to be a successful trader" Oswaldo, Phoenix AZ
"I met with Steve last Saturday to discuss his system and help clarify my views on trend following. Steve was able to demonstrate why trend following works (with lots of chart examples) and why his system is best placed to benefit from this style of trading (including an explanation of the scans he uses). We went through lots of chart examples and he explained to me the importance of using proper risk management and utilising guaranteed stop losses to avoid hitting problems with gaps. Steve not only has a lot of theoretical knowledge of the trend following literature but also loads of real world experience to back it up. To meet with someone that has and still is trading a trend following system successfully is a great confidence boost. I recommend a 1:1 session for anyone who wants to understand how to make money trend following. Thanks Steve." Mark, Lincolnshire
"I recently had the pleasure of 1-2-1 training from Steve and found the day excellent value. Steve is very knowledgeable, clear in explaining the concepts of the system and was very open in sharing his trading experiences. After setting up the scans on my home pc we covered risk management, loads of chart examples, adopting the correct mind-set and the importance of recording results. As a result I was literally trading the T3 system profitably the next day after training. I was impressed by the key emphasis on keeping it simple, after all it's following the system that will work in the end." Derek, London
"As a complete beginner when I came across Steve's blog, I was impressed at his results in his detailed trade log and after reading his blog posts for a month, immediately bought his book as it came was released. Detailed within the book is his exact trading setup, it's simple and it works I wasted no time by starting using it on a real account, choosing my own trades on the scans, for some VERY LUCRATIVE gains in a trending market at December 2010. I followed this up with emails and one-on-one trading and to this day am trading profitable. I will continue using this for future trading and recommend this book to everyone who wants to trade profitably." Dan, UK
"I TRUST this system. Why?
I have been a part time trader on and off for 6 years. The path has been hard and lessons costly but I was fortunate enough to have the self discipline required in money management not to exhaust all my equity before I started to learn and started to win more than I lost.
The T3 system has re-enforced my trading rules and I have become confident enough to run with the trend. No more doubt with letting positions run, I have guaranteed stop losses and no limits to the potential wins.
That's the trick, make sure your win value exceed the limited losses.
This is not a recommendation as each person needs to understand their attitude to risk but for me this (T3 System) is the best investment I have made.
Steve provides you with all the tools and bless him (as he'll learn the hard way) he is fully available to provide support. How many trading books are there were you can contact the author for advise, comments and support?!
I thank Steve and will probably call on him before the year is out for one to one tutoring as the final step before going full time trader.
All the best Steve!" Scot McP, UK
"After investing for a while I thought I would look into trading but with lots of information on the internet, I got myself confused then I came across Trader Steve's website which in itself is very informative. After having a look around I decided to buy the eBook, inside are very clear ideas and full of good advice about money management, stop losses and a whole lot more.
And to me the best bit is Steve has answered any question I have asked and there as been a lot. So Steve I take my hat off to you! The trend is your friend" Michael, Nottingham
"Dear Steve, Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how useful the Trading Triangle has been in in helping me to start to understand trend following. As someone new to trading and very cynical of stuff one reads on blogs etc, I have to say you are a breath of fresh air in that you are there to answer any questions, in my case however stupid, so many thanks for that." Nigel, East Sussex
"I would highly recommend The Trading Triangle to those looking to trade a trend following methodology like Trader Steve. Not only does Steve explain his trading system in detail with numerous chart examples, but he also covers psychology and money management, two very important topics often overlooked by many traders.
If you're having problems generating consistent returns from your own trading, then The Trading Triangle will definitely help you turn things around. All you have to do is check out the Trading Log on Steve's blog to see what returns are possible using this system." Bill F, Glasgow
"I have been trading various short term systems mainly successfully for about 15 years, but recently decided my time frame needed to get a bit longer. I tried several methods without being successful or comfortable with them. Then I stumbled on Trader Steve and his method several months ago, and things fell into place straight away and I'm sure provided I remain disciplined and follow the rules I will make money in the coming years. The book was easy to read and understand. In my opinion a good system needs to have few rules and a non trader be able to understand, and this meets those criteria." Peter, South West England
"After a couple of years of dipping in and out of various trading approaches I realised Trend Following was for me and stumbled across Trader Steve's website. His view of the market appealed to me and I wanted to know more. I saw he was advertising his Trading Triangle system for £30 which I thought was a bargain, after all you can not simply follow someones trade picks and expect the same results, you need to understand the system, its rules and how it fits your particular circumstances.
The system is accompanied by a very informative ebook which covers areas like money management, compatability, stop losses and expectancy. I found the ebook an extremely useful tool which compliments the trading system and ensures you have an understanding of what is required in order to make profits.
I realise the key to success is discipline and following the system rules and I now look forward to placing my first trades and doing just that." Declan, Buckinghamshire
