Dear Joe and Pat,
As far as trading goes I can only say one word which strikes out in the home
course " Graduation" Graduation!!!"
Well here's wishing you Merry Christmas and and super duper 2008.
December 21 2007
I am very glad to know you are coming to Beijing China to hold a seminar. I am a big fan of yours and enjoy very much
reading your book of Trading with Dinapolli Levels, which I think is one of
the best trading books I ever come accross. I am also very interested in your
Trading Course and would like to know if it is possible that you can bring one
with you to Beijing Look forward to hearing from your soon and in the meantime
would like to wish you and your family: Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.

It was very nice meeting both you and Joe at your great Siesta Key home over the weekend.
It was very gracious of both you and Joe to take the time in the middle of your move to help
me gather Joe's investment material.
Please tell Joe that his book is outstanding,... very well written and full of unique and

will be speaking in Austin TX before you go back to Thailand.

My dear Friend,
Please allow me to show you how I benefitted from the P-Sem and the 4years
of Trading with DiNapoli experience.
Thanks for the good trading experience you share with us on your seminars. I spoke to Pieter and he said that you would know us when you plan your first Adv-sem in Bangkok. I do not want to miss it.
All the best and good luck. Hope to see you on the forum soon.

First off, I just wanted to thank you for taking some of your time inLas Vegas
to speak with me personally. I really enjoyed both your friday sessions as well
as your paid Saturday session and have never felt more ready and confident to
trade. Just as a reminder, my nameis J. P. We talked for a few minutes after
the Saturday 4hour session right by your booth. You asked to me to send you
a email to remind you to check and see if I had already been added to you rwaiting
list for the next private seminar you will be holding.
Once again, thank you for your time over this last weekend andI look forward
to sitting in your next private seminar soon.
(This email is regarding a hard hittinng
presentationn I give titled "Truths about trading no one will tell you".
The author was misstreated by the "floor" and asked what might be
Hi Joe, I've been to several of your talks, one or more
at the Las Vegas expos ( couldn't make it this year), one back probably late
80's or so.
Thought you might be interested to read a copy of my email to my guy at the
brokerage today, concerning what somebody down there on the floor did today.
Thanks to your talk , I'm not naive and I know this type of thing happens, but
it hurts that they won't give me my trade and I can't collect the premium that
is deteriorating even as I type this.
Maybe it could be a valid thing? but it really doesn't look like it to me.
Either way, I 'll accept it, if my broker guy can't do anything. And your talk
makes it easier , knowing these things do happen.
Still, if they did take it from me, its not right.
Thanks, Joe, I just wanted to write.
Here's the main part of the emai I sent :
Is there anything you can do?
Dave, probably nothing-- I dont like options for this
reason and encourage you to trade with a electronic market-- you could call
your broker and threaten to go to the regulators-- or go to them --but probably
Join the crowd of the knowledgeable traders that are
****** by unfair rules-- by less knowledgeable group-- that need the rules to
good to hear from you my friend!

damn joe, you are lookin' good.
got all you hair, no weight gain and you don't look dusted....
just a quick note........
double repo 3 x 3 is alive and well in the forex market on intraday and i luv it.
great stuff. you taught it in 1996 tag xviii
November 6 2007
Just finished reading the trading course you sent and it has been great! Can
see there has been an enormous effort gone into it over a long time. Going to
read it again and practice before coming over there in January to do the course.
Look forward to meeting you and Joe. All the best....
November 2 2007
Thanks so much for writing back! Yes, we've met a couple of times at seminars in S Cal (San Diego?), and definitely in Chicago where I bought the book, and you were forced to leave early before you signed it. Honestly, I have always kind of regretted that. It's been several years now (99??).
Your books are more than valid, they've helped teach me to fish, but most importantly,
you have always had complete candid honesty about your approach and your teaching,
and I know this as a fact from traders of very different levels of experience
other than my own opinion. I am quite sure that the course materials are worth
every penny charged so I'll pay whatever you think is fair.
I would value, greatly, a signed copy of a first edition of "Trading with
DiNapoli Levels", when I order (I'll pay extra because I know your copies
are not free). I would send my copy in to you but it's worn out and has my notes
and scotch markers all in it, so I would like a clean signed copy like I would
have gotten in Chicago. I have the tapes here, but I understand the course is
updated so I think the mp3 stuff is great, I don't care.
I am really glad you remembered my name and am more than glad I wrote in after
so long. Can you believe I had forgotten you produced a course until I found
this in a rare book shop!
Many thanks again, let me know what's fair ok.
November 2 2007
Thank you again for a fantastic weekend. I have already emailed Kevin for presenting such a fantastic seminar. Like I said to Kevin, it really did go beyond any of my expectations.
Danielle, my colleague Mahesh is interested in purchasing the Trade Navigator software. Can you please advise us on how we should approach this. He will also want Joe's tools.
November 1 2007
First off, it has been a great pleasure to sit right next to a copy of your book for some time now on DiNapoli levels. It has been more than instructive and thought provoking, it has helped make me money over the past few years, and my sincere thanks for it. Please keep sharing your experience.
I'm a former currency trader turned comml re developer, and have collected investment books, etc. for many years. Recently, I came across a cassette set course on money management and trend analysis by Coast Investment Software. I am in the process of listening and plan to also archive to cd, but I was hopeful to find some matching course materials, booklets, photostats, anything that might have been used in tandem with this course.
I sure hope you or your staff can help me some on this one, it feels like important work I want to make complete in my library. Once again, my sincere thanks for your educational efforts and books, as well as my best wishes for you in the future in everything you do. God Bless.
October 30 2007
Just a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed Sunday's Seminar at The Marriott, Sydney.
What I did take in was fantastic. I have already made more than thr cost + time
spent and then some. And it is only Tues morning here.
Will keep in touch and look forward to seeing you again
October 29 2007
here is Marco, italian trader.
I was in Milano at your conference at the beginning of this month,I really appreciated that day with you.
I'm reading your book,happy to read you have a good relationship with Jake Bernstein,I study a lot of his material...I like seasional set up for the big trends.
I' m really working hard to improve my trading and I want to thank you. You teached me some new ideas in my trading
and in particular:
-TIME STOP - it makes sense and makes a good difference
-DISPLACED M.A. it's working good,less false signals( I like 25,-5)
-MACD/STOCHASTIC- its filtering signals so well-
Nice to met you
October 5 2007
goodmorning Sig. Di Napoli,
my name is VP and I am a student in finance at Bocconi Universiy in Milan(www.uni-bocconi.it).
Last tuesday I was at your conference in milan...wonderfull!!!(even if when I went out for lunch the police took away my car)
I'm quite close to graduation and I would like to write my thesis starting from the gold ratio that is present in nature passing through wave priciples and reach your ideas doing some backtesting on your strategy for long-run prediction(for example prediction every three years on some important index starting from 1990 till now).
thank you very much for your attention
October 5 2007
By the way, I want to thank you for what I have learned at the advanced P-Sem.
I learned to look at my Quarterly, Monthly, Weekly, Daily charts on a daily basis
before the market opens! Strange that I should learn such a basic thing on an
advanced sem, but I must tell you at has opened a new world for me. My trading
has improved a lot!
PS When there is ever an p-sem in Bangkok with only DiNapoli Experts (Jason,
Piotr, etc), I would love to join it!

How have you guys been? It has been almost 5 months since our meeting with Joe, which has been nothing short of magical = ) . Hope that all is well.
Was wondering if there is any interest in the completion of our trading education
with Joe in attending the advanced Private Seminar as we have previously committed
to? It is to my understanding that there is a long waiting list, thus it will
be good if we can commit our attendance in advance for Joe's planning and scheduling.
Really look forward to meeting up with you guys again. Fellowship among traders, learning from Joe, and all that partying, nothing beats all that! = )
Please do keep in touch no matter what! = ) Look forward to hearing from you
August 6 2007
Thank you for your insight.
I am amazed at how well the emini S&P has found the Fibonacci numbers,
especially in the weekly.
You taught me to do Fibonacci well, and that has given me great insight into what is happening. Thank you, once again.
August 2 2007
Hi Joe ~
I have seen it for real now ~ Chuck Norris, Andre the Giant, and Boom Boon Mancini are in the ring, and the tired and the weak, etc have been thinned out!
Over the past couple of weeks, there have been several occasions where I was in a profitable trade, and the trade was at my profit objective working through the bid/ask at that level, when some huge order(s) came in and snatched the market several ticks away from my profit objective in one fell swoop, quite often precipitating a strong move in that direction. Taking a profit became having to save my ass in less than a second!
Your teaching has been a great influence on my trading. That seminar that you did in 1987 was very insightful, and is still very applicable. Thank you for sharing that with me. It has been valuable, as well as your many p-sems that you allowed me to attend.
July 21 2007
Thanks. I'm very interested in a private seminar with you. Although it has a taken a several years of painful experiment and observation your teachings have proven key to learning to trade consistently and profitably. When I started, I thought that my quantitative engineering background would help more than it has. The discretionary part of trading is the truly difficult part. Your article on judgemental trading in the book "Computerized Trading" now makes perfect sense. In any case, II want to thank you and learn whatever else you have to teach. If anything opens up sooner, please let me know.
July 8 2007
You probably don't remember me, but about 4 years ago I set up for one of your
seminars, because I believed that you were the right person to introduce me
into day trading without all the crazy and over blown offers made by the ....
I found very difficult to understand your Levels Book and heard your CDs, but
without having a basic core it was futile.
On an inspiration I decided to read the Levels Book, and began to play with
your indicators, and suddenly a light broke through the darkness, and I could
It has been three weeks of daily trading the ER2, profitably. Have not had a single day with a loss, and I had set myself a goal before doing real trading, and if all goes as current, I plan to start at the end of the month.
I truly want to thank you, and hope that in the future I have the opportunity of meeting.
By the way, the FibStation and Branko's help in setting it up are the foundation
for my trading
July 7 2007
Bouht your book almost three years ago. Took me until 6 months ago to fully internalize most of it. Still have work to do on choose OPs for exit. But I'm cleaning up with the Bread and Butter setup. Only thing is... getting a fill is insanely hard. I'd have tripled my account by now if not for no fills. 2pips to a fill, 3 pips to a fill, 1 pip to a fill, then the market takes off w/o me. It really wears on my patience, but man I love it.

I hope your travels are going well. I was on a panel two weeks ago with Tim Morge at the San Diego Traders Expo and your name came up during the event. You truly are an icon of the industry, respected and revered by traders in all circles, including myself.
I am in the process of writing my second book right now, with a loose summer
deadline of September 1 (haha). I am not sure about your feelings on this, but
being that you were extremely influential in my trading style, a point that
I repeatedly articulate when speaking and being interviewed, I was wondering
if you wouldn't mind doing a forward in the book. I am very open minded for
where this book can go if you would like to participate in some other manner,
I am more than amenable. However, I would be extremely honored if you could
somehow be involved....

Too right Joe I have lost count on those scalp O' rama type trades I have had of late, just beautiful, and beautiful indeed.
May 21 2007
I watched the DVD and liked it very much. Hopefully I get to attend one of Joe's
live presentations in near future. I'd very much appreciate the offer to access
the forum page. I'll be looking forward to your email.
May 19 2007
After much reading on technical analysis I decided that I needed serious training
so I had a computer company build me a trading machine with all the power needed,
four 19inch flat screens etc.
I bought your book and read it again and again getting something more at each
I bought the trading course and dividers great decision.
Now I have a quantum leap in insight and knowledge all be it still not enough
I now know how much I don't know.
I am determined to get this endeavour right, no matter how long the apprenticeship
takes, failure is not on the agenda.
May 13 2007
Sorry for such a late comment for the next guy to attend the P-Sem. As I told
you I have to come up with something good that reflects your true expertise.
Here is what I thought of my experience with you in BKK:
"Joe DiNapoli is one of the rare breed of traders who can not only show you how to trade well but can impart this knowledge to you in a crystal clear way. This shows his great teaching ability. He is also fun to be around as he makes the learning environment very comfortable. I would advise any one willing to learn to trade well to attend one of Joe's seminars."
N.B. : Joe would you please let me know of any progress for the Advanced P-Sem. I am interested.
May 11 2007
I hope you are in good health and that life in Thailand is treating you well.
I just wanted to share with you some of the positive changes over the lastfew
months. At the time of writing my last my email to you, I had hit a reallow
point in life and I have hit a few over the years of being in thisbusiness.
You advised me on the following
1 - focus on the method-- forget the money
2- you likely need an independent income
3- you must divorce your self from the income or money
Well in that order this is what I have done. I have focused all my time and
energy on the method and this is via your
book, the forum, kevins weekly d-level newsletter and of course with REALtrading.
In my early days I used to spend around 50-60 hours on the tradingfloor(my office
at home). Those hours of course were not productive - I useto flit from one
method to another - on a perpetual quest for more and moreknowledge.I am now
spending around 40 hours a week, but the difference is that myfocus is now the
best it has ever been(thanks to you). I am using the forumas more than just
Q&A. I am attempting to understand the THINKING behind thetrades(and my
trading is beginning to reflect this). I use Kevins weeklynewsletter to confirm
that BOTH my analysis and thinking is coherent withhis. I am also constantly
re-reading your book. I am now trading regularlywithout the fear and hesitation
and my consistency is improving nicely.
... I am so muchricher in knowledge, emotionally stronger than I have been
before and mostimportantly happy and in good health. My wife has been a pillar
of supportthrough these difficult years and that too is a huge blessing.
Joe I have not met you(yet), and here I am writing you a life story. I wouldlike
to say that you are an absolutely fantastic teacher and mentor and it really
is thanks to you that I now finally can see some light at the end of
My sincerest regards to you
P.S. Any dates decided for the P-sem?

How are you Going Joe????
my Visit to the private seminar was a dreamrun this time around!! the best Mate!!really

Just writing to let you know that I received the order this morning andeverything
is excellent. Instead of conventional books, the material seemto be part of
a Phd thesis which make them just beautiful. I feelprivileged to have this knowledge
on my hands, and hopefully I will knowhow to give it the best possible use .
April 25 2007
Thanks for your quick response. .... If I could get the stand alone Thrust
Scanner as well, that would be great. I really like the tradingmethods you present
and hope to develop a good businessrelationship with you guys for years to come.
April 20 2007
As a recent seminar attendee I say don't come if you don't want tolearn. I
arrived a day late and Joe made sure I had the information Imissed.. How many
investors will let you learn in their home for such asmall amount? I had a great
experience and will do it again sooooooooon.
April 17 2007
I had the privilege to attend the ATIC session u present on Nailing the Dinapoli Levels and also owning the book.
I have just started reading the book and still far from the finishing point but I would like to say the best takeaway I have in my learning to trade stage at the moment would be the preface and the Chapter 1 of the book.
Life has been kind to me and I did know some friends who are successful traders and investors who have provided me tips that enabled me to make shopping $ in the past. When I decided to learn to fish vs having to have the fish fed to me last Nov, I encountered the challenges that u mentioned in your book.
Now I have finally have the courage to pull the trigger again and thank you for the seminar on Sun and the book.
April 14 2007
Just wanted to share the strangest thing where it's like a string of lightbulbs
went off on finally reaching a point where your methodologies are coming together
for me on an "active" basis.
Since coming back from Thailand, it's been a constant progression from organizing to applying your techniques. Within this last week, even better from an active standpoint where things I've learned have started coming together and moreso reaffirmed from the bulletin. I'm going to make it a point to become more active on your bulletin with questions and sharing trades (goof ups and all) on spotFX which have been helpful in the learning curve. The last couple of posts I made and reading the more recent from Kevin has been very helpful where my lightbulbs went off.
Hope all's well and "hi" to Pat.

I'm e-mailing you in regards to your private seminar courses in Bangkok, Thailand.
Having read your book I'd like to firstly thankyou for difference that you've
made in my trading and my life. Iwould also like to further my studies of your
techniques in trading and hence my inquiry on your private seminars in Bangkok.
Could you please send me a 2007 schedule of educational seminars in which you
will be holding. I reside in Jakarta, Indonesia, would youhappen to hold any
educational seminars here in Jakarta or Singapore?

March 29 2007
...I latched on to fibonacci trading about a year ago and came across your material
about 7-8 months ago. Since this time my approach has been soley based around
your methodology. I have read the book many times over, watched the dvd course,
listened to the audio version and am currently a member of your forum. I have
said it before and I'll say it again - it's the best material I have ever come
across. Thank you so much for this.
I would say that I have a relatively good understanding of your material. When
circumstances allow - I will definitley be coming out there to Bangkok to attend
your private seminar...
March 26 2007
Hi Joe--I just wanted to thank you for your incredible calls on this market...I
took your advice and reread the post beginning in September. Absolutely incredible.
Hopefully I can meet up with you somewhere...I really would like to come to
Bangkok.... Anyway, thanks for your great calls.
March 24 2007
First of all, thank you very much for everything, it has been a pride tohave
you as teacher for twice. In spite of the problem I have with thelanguage -
I understand much more than I speak ? I have learn very muchthan I expected
and, now, I have done only two trades and turn out well.
I follow you and the others DiNapoli experts through the forum every day,thus,
I go on learning the rest that I can missed in the P-seminar.
...thank you again for DiNapoli method and tools.
All the best for Pat and you.
March 22 2007
Good morning Joe and all,
Is the B&B now complete and a good time to enter shorts? If so, where would stops be placed? We did not ever reach the XOP areas around 13045.
Great call Joe. You da man!!!
March 20 2007
looks like we are getting real close to the B&B targets.I didn't get to
go long this last move...
I was skeptical but have been watching the action vrty closely and in sort of disbeleif...
i am amazed at how you can project these moves.
i am now ready to go short when targets are reached and we get a rally failure directional signal.
Thanks Joe...still learning
Best of trading

March 8 2007
Thank you so much for following up. ...
TS just released a new version (due to the new daylight savings time) and so I just installed it. In the process I seemed to have lost all my DiNapoli indicators etc (thank goodness for backups). I have all the old e-mails from your team so I should be able to reinstall everything again. Per chance I do have problems I will let you and/or Branko know.
Again thanks for the follow up... I must say that everyone on your team (and Joe's) is a class act.

You have done a good job aldready!
I'm confident of your Retracement and Expansion and I have realized it myself.
It is very precise.
...This is a very safe way with the lowest risk.
Febuary 26 2007
Look what the guy who implemented your indicators in NextView Advisor tells abt your indicator!!!
I must thank you for your powerful indicators....the Retracement and Expansion.
I had been developing software and I have never ever traded before. I just wanted to put the knowledge gained into practice so that i can gain the self confidence in your indicator. Only after I gain confidence, I can tell others.
I started to trade singapore stocks for the very first time from the first week of this month following your teachings and I'm happy to inform you that I got my first humble S$100 profit from my very first Sell transaction.
Yes DiNapoli Retracement and DiNapoli Expansion works.
I'm so delighted that I have aldready started to tell others to buy your indicators!
Thanks & Regards
Febuary 23 2007
Good morning Joe, my name is ......and I am contacting you via ....He has highly
recommended your book : Trading with DiNapoli Levels. As a fomer CME floor trader,
primarily in the Eurodollar and Nasdaq pits, I have spent the last year trying
to migrate to the screen. Although I felt the transition would be straightforward
and rewarding, the challenges associated with not buying the bid and selling
the offer have been a dose of reality. I felt I could use my pit instinct and
transfer that technique into a screen awareness to help recoup some lost edge.
My thinking was: "more products, more opportunity". Lately, it has
been "more products, more confusion"....
I have read a review of your book online and it was very complimentary of your work well beyond Fib levels. The field of psychology is one that I feel is directly reponsible for my poor decisions when it comes to impulsive trades. As written, your no nonsense approach to trading is just as important as calculating levels. With this being said, I would like to request a book for purchase since I cannot find a new copy and would like to know if I can continue my pursuit of learning how to trade. I realize you live in Bangkok, but if ever travelling through Chicago, I would like to extend the invitation to meet in person. Thank you for your time.
J. Has run some new numbers on the monthly corn chart, We can not believe what
we are seeing. ....You are the best at reading the charts that I have ever seen,....
....Hope both of you guys are in good health and feeling fine !!
OXOX TO you both..
Febuary 17 2007
Thanks again. The P-sem was excellent. I liked it very much. Relax class environment, serious discussions on an array of topics, on the book or not. It indeed covered what I expected and not expected, as a daily based trader.
In particular, I like the following topics / sessions very much :
(a) Replacing the Stochastics by fading lower time frame MACD : so that I can keep my charts neat and cleaner, hence easier to read
(b) Choosing the fib level to enter in trend trading : this one is particularly important to me as I trade trend primarily. I now know when can I expect a deeper retracement given the objective point reached by the preceeding swing.
(c) Tricks of the market makers : Joe, you opened my eyes! My professors in university told me nothing about this! You know what? They only taught me that market makers earn the bid-ask spread and that's it. Well, all of them came from top-notch universities in the US.
(d) Identifying stops for potential W&R : again, I never know this in school. The incentive of gunning for the stops sheds some light on choosing the most likely D-Level. I heed your advice and am studying on charts.
(e) Scalp O Rama : Thanks for that. I have included this in my trading plan after studying some charts.
All in all, I had a great time with great people. I gain a lot in terms of trading knowledge and equally important, I know more of my weaknesses. Thank you again.
Febuary 16 2007
Hi Joe and everyone,
....The P-Sem Excellent in terms of content. What I enjoyed the most was the
STOPplacements of the market and how to look out for it. It really opened myeyes.
It was good to cover the basics like focus and reaction pionts, K andA, etc.,
since if the basics are not understood, the application is useless.As mentioned,
a lot of traders in the market use Fib-levels but we have the
advantage of applying it correctly. One must also understand the marketmechanics,
which Joe covered in depth, to show where additionalopportunities may arise. After
studied the TWDL several times, I still had questions and uncertainties and the
p-sem answered all, or those that count anyway. Fullyworth the money paid.
You either like it or hate it............. Riding on a tuc-tuc was a great experience.......Cheap
clothes worth the while.
Thanks Joe and Pat for your hospitality and your profesional service. You are
great. I did not expect Joe to be so relaxed and casual, I was surprised, not
shocked!!! Bare-foot, in the kitchen and luckily not pregnant.
Happy Trading. And please let me know if you want an African SafariExperience,

Febuary 13 2007
It was really an excellent experience, not only validating your understanding of course material but aso meeting like-minded traders in an informal learning arena.
The detail that you pick up here can very subtle, but thats the issue - it's the details that make the difference. Listening to how Joe interprets the patterns not only educates you about the patterns itself but also what the markets are doing and more importantly , how the markets move.
For me, learning about how large players manipulate the market was an eye-opener. I know it happens but i never understood the mechanics of it. Now i have a much better understanding.
Joe makes you think about your answers, there's no wishy-washy answers, which is what you want in trading. You can't get away with vague answers and this is for your benefit.
One very important thing i got from it, was a confidence that this stuff works. this is the exact stuff that Joe uses - no Bull shit. Other people use it successfully. Listening to the other classmates about how they use DiNapoli studies just reinforces this. You are given the building blocks , You are not spoon fed. you must do the follow up work to make it work for you.
Patience is one thing that my class mates have taught me. For me there has been so much subtle pieces of info given to me , that it will take a while for it to sink in and provide that " Whoaaaa " moment , but i know i have to keep working , keep charting , keep on the forum and provide that platform so that at some stage in the future , that little bit of info will get there and will be that edge you need.
Great bunch of diverse people at the course from which you learn about other
markets and other failings that they went thru and learnt from.....
An Advanced P-sem is definitely on the agenda , but i will give it some time to go thru and get better skilled at the base stuff.....
Thank you again Joe. thank you for opening your home to us and providing an excellent learning arena

I have an account with GFT, and I bought Trading With DiNapoli Levels some time ago (excellent book, by the way), and was wondering if I am able to qualify for the free password to the trader support and education area.
Thanks in advance,

Dear Joe DiNapoli,
I like to thank you for taking time to speak with me during your seminar at SGX (Next View) today. I really enjoyed your teachings, and more so reading your book, and your trading philosophy. Your direct, open and honest approach really struck a chord in me.
Please give me the opportunity to attend your private seminar, which I believe
will be life changing. ...

I'm back at home after an outstanding learning experience. After 30 years of hit and miss trading in both stocks and commodities, the lights have finally come on.
It all started when I discovered your book and home study course. Things got even more understandable when I heard you speak in Las Vegas, and it was all tied together beautifully at the private seminar in Bangkok.
I now understand market mechanics, good entry techniques, the importance of having logical profit objectives, recognizing areas where markets are unstable, and stop placement at predetermined areas, which may be adjusted depending on changing market conditions.
It took me a while to overcome the urge to be a "breakout" trader, but I think I'm finally there. I also love avoiding the big drawdowns my old systems brought into play.
I can't wait to come back to do the advanced seminar.
Apart from the learning experience, the "boys night out" provided great camraderie which brought us all closer together as individuals, and also gave us a glimpse of Bangkok's exciting night life.
Thanks again, and I'm looking forward to the next visit.

G'day Joe and Pat
Tina and I want to thank you for the warm welcome and hospitality and the training
material and knowledge that you gave us so unreservedly.
We have nothing but admiration and are so grateful for the opportunity. If
only we had come across you sooner, but we did get here and that's what's important
now. Tina and I will be working very hard now on the book and reviewing all
that we covered at the course....
Will keep in touch.

Please keep me on the List ... I am so looking forward to your seminar. Seeing
what I have seen after the small amount learnt, it is to say the least, mind
boggling. This is not a black box idea, it's the real thing. If I could master
your techniques,. I'd be a happy camper.
From my experience I have learnt it is easy to get in to a trade. But knowing when to get out is where bucks are made, and minimizing losses is Paramount.
... I just wanted to let you know my thoughts. I'm glad I was lucky enough
to be introduced to yourself, but then again you make your own luck in this
