Hi Joe,

Class was great. I am still trying to develop a trading plan that can get me off the floor. I still have a long way to go.

What is helping me is going through the questions posted on the web.

I am very much impressed with your book. Being basically new (3 years equities and options), I understand some, but still am confused. When should i be ready to purchase your software, and what else do i need to practice.

Thanks for your time, I know it's limited

The software would be valuable at any time now-- in fact it will help you learn--and there's still that trading Course --The cost to benefit ratio cannot be argued with- If you want to have a conversation with Neal re the software feel free to contact him or 425 576 8498. My guess is that if you talk with him he'd be happy to help you through the math issue as well.

Dear Joe,

Great day yesterday with your man Neal. An excellent teacher and I see why you get along with him--dry, a bit sarcastic (I like that), funny, smart and solid as hell.

Marked up 100 charts today and didn't even trade, I'm so excited to learn this stuff!

Do these work in 5 minute time frames or was I lucky?.........

I have finally had the time, with the CQG and all your stuff properly arrayed and available, not cobbled together, with the time to sit and follow through moves and finally clearly see the integration of the time frames, really understand the effect of direction, which is a hell of a lot more significant than i previously thought or realized. It all came together the last four days.

I have no other reason to tell you than I really mean it, but your genius really shows through once one understands what's going on. It really is like a flowing picture. I am very grateful to you for the work you have done and grateful to myself for having stuck with it for the THIRTEEN years ! since I first met you. The material has never gotten a chance given the piecemeal way I've tried to trade. I have never really gotten it until now and its like a light comes on when you finally see it.

All the times I've heard you speak (two private seminars) and multiple listening to the tapes and reading the book, you just don't get it until you sit hour after hour, bump your head multiple times, make multiple errors and finally see it.

Dealing in numbers, charts, money, competition, its probably hard to realize the human side of what you have done, but you have made a significant difference in my life and ultimately that of my family.

Thank you. Good to hear from you. Hope you're well.

Good Evening, Pat

I just returned from Vegas, and I'm wrapping up things from the expo. This is the email requesting my password. I really resonated with Joe's work and it's thrilling to know that there's someone out there who not only know's what I'm doing, but more. This could really amp up my learning curve. You might tell him that I only buy about 1 book per decade (Gerald Loeb in the 60's,
Welles Wilder in the 70's, etc.), so for what's it worth, he's in "select" company.

And, it was a pleasure to meet you. Call it spirit or energy, but I tend to relate to people at a level beyond the physical, and you were a joy to experience. I look forward to the next time our paths cross.

Thanks for your assistance.

I wanted to thank you for arranging our attendance at the Trade Portal AT Financial seminar. I have benefited immensely from the information presented there.

I am really amazed and appreciative that you, Pat, and the other guys go as far as you do to help us. Well beyond the call of duty in my estimation.

I cannot state strongly enough how fortunate I feel to have been able to learn from you and those around you.

Getting acquainted with you and those at CIS has not only been profitable but more importantly pleasurable. I find you all to be friendly and genuinely concerned with you’re students well being.

That, I would imagine, is a rare thing in any business or personal encounter.

Dear Joe,

I have started to rebuild my confidence in trading after reading your book. I was able to identify a Double RePo in USD/SWF last Thursday(9.21.00) and subsequently managed to recover much of my losses caused by an extremely poor entry I made some weeks ago before receiving your book. (I would have been able to avoid such a serious mistake if I had considered the context of the trade, to which you attach great importance in your book.) XOP was achieved the next day after the Confirmed Double RePo, helped by the central banks' joint intervention

Subject Reply to your DiNapoli Workshop message.

Dear Joe

What a terrific teacher you are! I really appreciate your clarity and directness. It's refreshing.

I have to tell you that even without using the power of the MACD/Stochastic comb. which I am learning to use, the use of the 3 X 3 in itself, along with the leading indicators work, has resulted in an increase--in the market since April!--of nearly 75 % in my profits. I thought I was a pretty savvy trader, but I feel like I've been a freshman until discovering the power of this work.

Here's a mystery to me. I'm not sure, but I think that none of the direct access brokers have displaced moving averages available in their charting software. I don't know whether to be pxxxxx or thrilled! Some (not all) major data vendors do have it, but as you know, they don't always set the line out the actual periods, which creates a visual problem.

Thanks Joe, you are a champ.

Joe DiNapoli:

G. Max,

There's really a lot to your question.

I use the 3X3 on Day week and monthly charts-- Only in thrusting markets though there is some limited value in sloppy markets where i depend more on the 7X5 or 25X5.
Then I drop to the MACD/Stochastic for all intra day analysis. I also may use the MACD/Stochastic for the higher time frames as well as a conformation of the trend as defined by the DMA's.There are variations of use for these indicators which depend largely on your experience and skill level in using them. The DMA's are easier to use while the MACD/Stochastic is more powerful.The most powerful use of the 3x3 is in defining 3 of your directional signals and to help you to define thrust.

Hope this helps.

Subject Re Trading

Joe's book has lots of excellent strategies. I agree that it is not easy to apply to real trading at first. After several months of struggle, I finally decided to trade only B&B and to master it. Since February this year, I had 17 B&B trades with only 2 losers. My point is, start out with one or two directional signals. Pick some easy ones like B&B or DPRO. Study them and master them. Once your confidence is built up, you can then move on to other strategies in the book.

Don't give up. Good luck.

 Date Fri, 05 May 2000

I have a question but first...

I want to tell you that I know nothing about trading. Certainly, not enough to make any reliable judgement about anyone's methodology. I ordered your book and tapes based on something that is somewhat intangible. In reading your interview and in conversation you struck me as very genuine and honest. Those same qualities were apparent in Neil, as I spoke with him, prior to
deciding to attend the recent seminar. He has been very generous and forthcoming with information, above and beyond what would normally be expected. These things speak to me more than any benefit I may gain from studying your techniques. So, I want to give credit where it's due. I like meeting people like yourselves. I hope there are more of you out there.

My question is in regards to Forex. As far as I can tell, the only accurate and reliable way to trade Forex with your indicators is with CQG, unless you get eSignal to feed Metastock so Intraday CTP can read those files. I am not interested, at this time, in intraday trading, just making my entry intraday once i see support/resistance on a daily fibnode. If I didn't explain this properly, perhaps you could just tell me what you have found the best route to be.

Thanks for your patience, time, and efforts.

I have read Trading with DiNapoli levels for the second time, and I am studying the Trading course. I just wanted to tell you that your material is the most relevant, realistic approach to trading the markets that I have encountered, and I have spent much time and money looking at the works of many.

Earlier in my trading experience I was not ready to comprehend the Fibonacci and money management concepts you teach, but as the saying goes "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear".....

Your method of using Trend analysis (Stochs, MACD, DMA's and the Detrended oscillator) is simple but brilliant. It very much agrees with my style of trading. I only wish I had taken the time and found you 3 years ago for I would have an extra 100k in my personal trading account.

As a money manager using Index mutual funds for my clients and being limited to end of day daily trading, I have caught the last couple of moves for a solid gain for my clients in the NDX using Fib analysis to determine entry and exit.

I know I have much to learn before I come close to mastering the many techniques in your work, but I now feel so much more confident making trades with just what I have learned so far. I look forward to taking a private seminar in the near future.

I could not be more excited about learning and applying the methods in your excellent and unsurpassed research and work as it applies to trading the markets.

A young trader named Karl recently contacted us regarding learning more about trading fib levels. Karl indicated he has been trading successfully for about a year and has expressed great interest in learning more about >using Fibonacci in trading.

I had an excellent February, particularly the last two weeks. I have been able to apply your stuff, particularly on the currency markets. I already knew to look for impulse and a retracement, and now the OPs get hit an amazing amount of the time. And, my confidence level has increased, allowing me to continue to pull the trigger, and paradoxically, allowing me to wait for the choicest setups, rather than over trading......

I agree with ya there like it's like cheating!!!! )))

What I meant by "self-fulfilling" is that the floor and major off-floor players know where the key fib levels exist on most time frames, so, in a sense, the floor and big money move price to those levels....What's important is what happens next at those levels...price is either repelled by a fib level (reversal), or price is repelled and then accelerates through that level like a knife through hot butter (successful test or bounce followed by a failure), or price blows through the level like it doesn't exist (stop run or bid/offer vacuum). from experience by observing price, you can get a feeling for what might happen at the fib levels.


Neal Hughes wrote

Some would disagree that fib analysis is a self-fulfilling prophesy. There are many who believe that the more a certain technique is used (more traders using it) the less likely it will work in the markets. There is a conflict there, a trader can't believe both. Any-way, for whatever reason, Fibs work well in all liquid markets!

Subject "Trading With DiNapoli Levels" question.
posted to the Oxxxx-List..

Recently some of you had high praise for this book. After reading some reviews, the table of contents and a couple of articles by DiNapoli I'm almost ready to buy it. However I am afraid that the book might actually be a $200 sales brochure for $800 in software.

I trade stocks eod, (end-of-day) trying to catch trends and have no desire to diddle with intraday data. Are DiNapoli's ideas predicated on
multiple time frames? Have you folks been able to put his ideas to effective use without "Fibnodes" and the "Oscillator

Thank you for your attention. I'll welcome all comments.

Brad R.


The book is the complete trading methodology. It's not an advertising brochure for his software.

You can trade DiNapoli techniques without FibNodes or the Coast Trading Package. You will find those software packages
very convenient, but not essential. The only proprietary indicator that requires software from DiNapoli is his Oscillator-Predictor, though you can use his Detrended Oscillator to replace the Oscillator Predictor. The Detrended Oscillator as well as all the other indicators he uses (except the Oscillator Predictor) are disclosed in the back of the "Trading With DiNapoli Levels" book.

Most of the formulas for the DiNapoli indicators can be downloaded from his website http// in the proprietary client area. If you buy his book directly from DiNapoli, you get 60 days free access to that area, otherwise you get 30 days access. If you see the value of the coaching and mentoring web pages and forums, it's a better deal to skip the book-store discount
and buy direct. I volunteer my time to help traders on that website, so maybe I'll get to know you there?

Let me know if you have more questions.



This book will show you some techniques that you'll find very useful. The fib work that Joe teaches you in the book is fairly easy to learn and yet is a very powerful addition to your trading tools. The software Joe sells makes some of the calculations easier, but the only thing I can think of that Joe teaches that you can't do without the software is use the oscillator predictor.

I've said before here that I rank this book as one of my top five books on trading. I use the techniques in it all day long in my trading. Joe is an excellent educator.

With the time differences between markets in US and UK, the "less stressful" alternative approach discussed briefly by yourself with evening analysis etc.

I am seriously considering the use of CTP and Fibnodes as software options.

Once again, warmest thanks and regards for such an enthralling read - I have a lot to learn!!

Best regards,

Jason B.



The entire approach will work across time frames. One day to several weeks is no problem. If one is trading intra day, one
needs extremely accurate methods which is why so many day traders turn to our approach but it is not necessary to trade those time frames to benefit.

When you get the book see page 17. I had an oil position in 99 that lasted many months using the same approach!
... Thanks,

As you may know, I read about your trading philosophy in .......Joe and was immediately interested in your use of Fibonacci techniques and general approach to trading. I have since bought your book and am working my way (thoroughly) through it. You will be pleased to know that I am now using the DMA's you recommend along with the MACD and Stochastics ......., and am very impressed so far. Many thanks for sharing your expertise through this well written book.

I fully intend to continue my studies of your techniques and am in the fortunate position to be able to implement what I learn as I go along.

Good morning

I read your comments on the DiNapoli forum page with great interest. Although I have been using Fibonacci levels for years now, I am new to Joe DiNapoli's techniques. What I have seen of Joe's work (I am half way through his book) is extremely interesting and it seems to be a logical progression of my current trading style.

I have been in the FX/Futures industry for 20 years now and started as a floor trader on the .......xxxxxxxxx Exchange. I left the floor of the Exchange in 1985 to work in FX where I have been, apart from a 1 year sabbatical ....... , ever since. I was fortunate enough to be introduced to technical analysis very early in my career and it has been the basis of my trading ever since. I use xxxxxxxxx to display hourly and daily charts using Jxxxxx Cxxxxxs. I have always used moving averages to define trend and Fibonacci retracement levels to establish a position on a reaction to that trend. This is why, when I read about Joe's techniques......, it struck a chord with me.

I am considering taking a personal seminar with Joe this year and was encouraged to read that you found it so useful. I decided to contact you because I feel it is important to exchange views and ideas with like-minded people (Joe also recommends this in his book).

Hi Joe,

I was refereed to your book by Cxxxxxx Bxxxxx's book -- I've read/studied it
at least 5 times. It is my Bible (out of the over 20 books on trading I've

I want to thank you for your dedicated work and uniquely keen insights -- They are guiding me(with humility) on my way to becoming a consistently successful trader. I study the futures charts constantly as well and the perfect railroad track, as well as
the other patterns - work like a charm there as well.

I look forward to attending one of your seminars if you make it to Chicago.

With Appreciation,

Jim E.
