Pro-Trader Mentoring Library

A Comprehensive Library of Lectures on
Discretionary Price-Action Trading

PTM Recorded Sessions

Recordings of past mentoring sessions are available for purchase in this library at about 25% of the monthly subscription price. Each course includes all the sessions for that month, usually four sessions and about 12 hours of videos. Course name indicates year and month of the recording, for example PTM_202208 is for August 2022.

Intraday Trades Charts

Some modules also include a charts album. These charts are annotated to show various stop and limit order entries, with a short description of market context and expectations for that day. 

5 min Chart of ES (S&P500 Futures Contract) annotated with trades of the day. The focus is advanced trading with an emphasis on limit order entries. The assumption is trades are taken for scalps, so exits are not marked to avoid cluttering the chart too much. A scalper usually exits within the next bar or two, taking profits about the range of an average bar.
