I cannot find any areas that needed improvement in the seminar. You covered all the key concepts thoroughly and in a fashion that was easy to understand. It has already helped me with my trading, and I see the true value of scalporama as the markets so often give you a reasonable profit at those support/resistance levels.
Hope to see you on the west coast next year.
The seminar was a valuable education that I received and getting hands on experience with yourself was extremely informative. The way you go through the trading setup step by step helped me in preparing for my trades daily and I realised that I have to be very methodical in my approach. Also it was good to see that one needs a good amount of patience.
I learned a lot and give this seminar 10 out of 10.
Thanks Pieter and I can't wait for the next one.
Thanks so much for a very informative seminar. The way you integrate time frames, D-Levels, and various other key techniques is truly inspiring. With a focus on scalping, you have provided nice balance with the longer term approach that is Tony's focus.
I would be very interested in a San Francisco seminar next year.
The seminar was a real revelation of how much there is to learn to successfully trade financial markets. The importance to continually have a birds-eye-view of the market could not have been emphasized any better. A great job was done when each step in the trade plan was discussed and analysed. The P-sem is of great value for anyone who is serious about success in trading financial markets. Pieter, thank you for showing all the patience and willingness to share you knowledge and expertise!
Herewith just a short thank you for the time and effort you put in to present the seminar to us. Your knowledge of the subject made it a pleasure. Thanks for all the information you gave us. It is clear to me that you are indeed an expert on the subject.
Once again thank you for your time. I shall contact you with more questions once I have done some more work.
Thank you very much for the effort you made to present the course. I had been through the book a couple of times, but the course embedded some of the concepts and allowed me to clarify some uncertainties. In addition, the course communicated how the methodology has moved on since the start of the noughties. Markets continue to change and any judgmental system has to adapt to these changes.
You were patient with those who were slow, yet encouraged those who were faster.
The homework after day 1 is a great way of reinforcing what was covered on the day and disciplining the mind to think through the issues.
The time we spent on the second afternoon on the systems was very helpful, as implementation is usually daunting for those with limited experience.
And finally, the after course follow-up has been good. Even if this is not used often, it is comforting to know there is someone on the other side of an e-mail.
I look forward to spending time with you in the future while practicing to put into practice all the concepts after gaining some experience.
Thanks for a great weekend - it was truly an eye-opener for me. Although there are a few things that I will have to study I understand the bigger picture much better and, together with the course notes, should be able to improve my results dramatically
I found the seminar well structured and methodical and always had a clear picture of where we are going and what we are trying to achieve – that was great. Well done.
Thank you very much for the P-seminar on Saturday and Sunday. I enjoyed the interactive way in which you presented the material. The substance of the material was enriching and I found everything you teached of a very high value.
I can already feel a huge improvement in my total approach.
Thank you very much once again. I am looking forward to the advanced course.
Thank you very much for the D-level Seminar. When I bought the book 10 years ago, I tried hard to implement Joe's trade plans, but somehow was never confident enough to put a cohesive whole into practice. After spending 2 days with you, the complete trading method makes a great deal more sense. I now understand the setups and can see how to trade those using D-levels to manage the trades. I needed the course to interpret the book. It’s obvious that Joe has a very high standard of requirements when appointing leaders of his training courses. I must particularly thank you for the gentlemanly way in which you were able to conduct the seminar in English when I was the only one whose home language was not Afrikaans. I now feel that I have gained a friendly expert and look forward to further training time with you.
I need to get my computer, software and platforms in order and much more powerful before doing anything more advanced.I was extremely impressed with your comprehensive trading room!
Thanks, it was an excellent seminar, I’ve learned an enourmous amount and it was presented very proffesionally!!
Finally get some time to email a big thank you to Pieter for a brilliant P-Sem. It was really a great learning experience with a great bunch of people.
Such a huge amount of great info sometimes daunting, sometimes overwhelming , but always enjoyable :)
I have been busy getting up to speed with TNG - already a great decision, and looking forward to implementing some of the new info/tips/methods.
Thank you all again and hopefully catch you all again at the next P-Sem or maybe sooner.
Pieter, thanks for sharing your knowledge in such an effortless manner. I realise that it is very hard to do; thanks for building up your skills to such a level. And thank God that you come from a teaching background. Joe and you are masters at this because you teach - imho.
This event was particularly rewarding and dare I say it but I preferred the Melbourne seminar to those in Bangkok! I hope we can all make it for the next advanced seminar in Melbourne.
If you haven’t already, I recommend subscribing to Pieter’s DLevel weekly reports. I have decided to do the analysis myself on my own charts and then compare it with Pieter’s DLevel report to see the things I have missed and to compare our conclusions. It is like having Pieter as a mentor every week. Pieter, thanks for your excellent support and generosity.
Best of trading to everyone.
Pieter, a big thank you.
These two seminars marked the point of transition in my career as a trader. Guys, I'm happy to be part of this family of traders that share the same objective. Trading is a lonely business but these truly remarkable experiences, eliminate the loneliness of this career. And thanks to Joe, this wouldn't happen without him. I see you all in the next tick of the DAX.
2 day Standard Private SeminarPresented by Pieter van Wyk
3.5 day Advanced Private SeminarPresented by Pieter van Wyk
Pieter is an active trader with over 20 years of market trading experience, covering a whole spectrum of global markets and various financial instruments. His formal education is in Economics. He graduated Cum Laude from the University of the Free State in South Africa. While studying economics, he decided to apply the knowledge learned to the markets which led to his first trades while still a student.
After graduation Pieter joined a local South African brokerage firm where he started as an arbitrage trader. His interest in the movement of markets soon led the management of the firm to allow him to do small principle trading. It was during this time that he discovered Joe DiNapoli's work. By the time Pieter left the firm to trade for his own account he was a senior dealer for the firm on the South African Futures Exchange Equity Derivatives, as well as co-manager of the private client funds.
In 2008, after attending two standard and two advanced seminars given by the veteran trader, Joe DiNapoli, Pieter became an authorized DiNapoli Expert who is qualified to teach the trading strategy. He has spoken at seminars in Cape Town, Johannesburg, London, Warsaw, Geneva, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Sarasota, Melbourne and Sydney.
Currently Pieter is a dealer at a reputable South African financial firm and continues to present education in Joe DiNapoli's techniques. Stemming from a family of educators and teachers, combined with more than a decade of trading experience, he keeps himself up to date by seeing Joe as often as possible. This enables him to carry over Joe's methodology at a level understandable to traders just starting out, as well as those several years into their trading career.
Joe is a veteran trader with over 55 years of solid market trading experience. He is also a dogged and thorough researcher, an internationally recognized lecturer, and a widely acclaimed author.
His formal education was in electrical engineering and economics. His informal education was in "the Bunker". An aptly named trading room, packed full of computers and communications equipment, where most of Joe's early research began
Joe's exhaustive investigations into Displaced Moving Averages, his creation of the proprietary Oscillator Predictor and MACD Predictor, and in particular, his practical and unique method of applying Fibonacci ratios to the price axis using fibonacci retracements and expansions, makes him one of today's most sought after experts.
Joe, who was a registered CTA for over 20 years, has taught his techniques in the major financial capitals of Europe, Asia, Russia, the Mid East, and South Africa as well as in the United States. In 1996 alone Mr. DiNapoli gave presentations to capacity audiences in over 23 financial centers around the globe. His articles have appeared in a wide variety of technical publications across the nation and worldwide.
He was a contributing author to "High Performance Futures Trading, Power Lessons From The Masters", selected 1990 book of the year by Super Trader's Almanac. He has also authored the "Fibonacci Money Management and Trend Analysis In Home Trading Course" which has been lauded by professional and novice traders alike. His most significant work to-date is the book "Trading with DiNapoli Levels", which has become the industry standard for students of Fibonacci trading techniques. The book has been translated into 11 languages to date.
The "Atlanta Constitution" cited Joe's work by referring to the "magical power" of Fibonacci ratios in the market place. Joe has used this magic time and again on national TV to make both startling and uncannily accurate market predictions, particularly in stock market indexes and interest rate futures.
As president of Coast Investment Software, Inc., with offices in Bangkok, Thailand and on Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida, Joe continues to develop and deploy "high accuracy" trading methods, using a combination of leading and lagging indicators in unique and innovative ways. He conducts a limited number of private tutorials each year at his trading room.
