“Hi Ken, I am interested in learning how to trade ETF’s, and I only want to learn from someone who actually trades successfully, and YOU are one of the very few trading teachers who is a REAL trader! I’ve been following you and Steve Nison for years now, and you guys are the best. I’m really looking forward to your webinar on Saturday. Keep up all the great work, and thanks!” – Sincerely, Eliot B.

“Regarding your new series “ETF Mastery” and this new video “ETF Trading” you are once again at the top of your game. Ken you are a “Master” and a genius as far as I am concerned. You trade the way I believe is the way we all should be trading now. I know folks have their own trading styles but trading ETFs now is just the right amount of hedging and it can be done in either direction! And you show us how! You just cannot beat this method. With your tools and the experience you have gleaned over the years you make an excellent teacher and give more pointers and hints that you just do not find anywhere else, and this series seems to have it all. Bravo Ken Calhoun! I will be a forever fan, follower and fellow trader.” – Laura F.

Reply from Ken: Hey Laura… what can I say, but Thank you… your enthusiasm and encouragement is much appreciated, as always. It’s great to hear your thoughtful comments and positive thoughts. It’s emails like this that “make my day”, from one trader to another.

“I think this is the real “meat and potatoes” I’ve been looking for. I am a current 14DVD Ken Calhoun Steve Nison Trading System owner….That system has proved to be worth every cent spent. I feel the ETF Mastery System will be the “icing on the cake”. Ken Calhoun is the real deal and I feel that he really cares about our success as traders. This is rare these days… I am looking forward for another advance in my trading career.” James B.

Reply from Ken: Thanks for the kind words, James. I appreciate your trust and loyalty, and am glad the training you’ve gotten has been valuable for you. Thanks for ordering, and welcome aboard as the very first ETF Mastery system owner… (you’re the very first one to get your order in, congratulations!).

“Thanks. Preview videos are very good at showing that you know your stuff and can teach it. Some of the information is new and I will add it to my trading. Some was just enough to be intriguing… Smart! Thank you!” – Brenda O.

Reply from Ken:Thanks, Brenda – much appreciated. Glad to hear you like my teaching style and actual trading experience I can share with these brief video previews. That’s the purpose of the video clips, to show a glimpse of the quality, depth and professionalism of the video training that’s on the 6 DVDs (without giving away all the strategies). Plus, they can encourage interest and develop credibility with potential system owners such as yourself, to show you that ETF Mastery is well worth getting.

July 24, 9:27PM

“I trade only the QQQQ. Will this help me?” – Stan R.

Reply from Ken: Hi Stan, thanks for your interest. And yes, definitely ETF Mastery is specifically designed for ETF traders such as yourself — the strategies are all “tailor made” for ETFs like the QQQQs, so if you solely trade the QQQQs you’ll find plenty of useful tips and strategies in ETF Mastery that can be a big help for both day and swing trading the QQQQs.

July 25, 10:35AM

“An outstanding ETF focused group of informative lessons to teach an individual the steps to actively trade this market. Comprehensive, informative, and on target lessons to hit the trading world and be armed with the right tools. One can develop a great trading plan and specific trading strategies by applying this course. Congratulations to you Ken and your staff.” – Jerry E.

Reply from Ken: Thanks, Jerry. You hit the nail on the head with what you’re saying about “specific trading strategies”. That’s one area I’ve spent a lot of time on with ETF Mastery, to make it extremely specific and detailed… since many ETF courses I’ve seen are vague and don’t reveal the mechanics of how an actual trader enters and exits, as I show traders with ETF Mastery. Specifics are what separate professionals from the amateur ETF courses out there. Thanks for noticing!

July 22, 4:51PM

“You have really made this a must have.” – C.B.

July 22, 3:53PM

“Ken’s teaching is spot-on. His step-by-step training in the cup and handle pattern will amaze you. You will know exactly when and where to pull the trigger!” – Janice C.

July 22, 3:45PM

“Ken, great video. What I appreciated most about the video was that you teach multiple criteria entries. What I mean by that is before considering pulling the trigger and entering an ETF position that ETF trade should meet multiple minimum criteria. IE: Trend, ADX >30, and confirming Candle stick patterns on charts with different time frames. For me that translates into:”Be Picky, pass on more trades…” All the Best, Mario P.

Reply from Ken: Good insights, Mario… exactly right — as any winning professional trader does, it’s important to have several criteria that are met before each trade is made. Being more picky and passing on more trades is a key to success; plus being able to quickly and easily know which 3-4 indicators to use that improve the odds of success…. Then, putting on those trades (only). That’s one of the main approaches traders are taught in ETF Mastery, is showing the specific technical step-by-step setups that give traders the exact “trade vs no-trade” criteria they can use in their ETF trades.

July 22, 3:26PM

“What I liked best was how you explaned the enrteries into the cup pattern handles for day and swing trading…I continue to watch every one of your webniar events and always pick something up that I missed…Ken thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.” – Greg J.

“I like the simplicity of the system. It will be a good money maker after learning the system.” – Mohammad K.

July 22, 8:44AM

“I liked the way you explained the points to consider to become a successful trader. Every trader should be aware of their own trading style that suits them, and form a plan about entries and exits and trailing stops, technical analysis, candle formations, S/R, position sizing, trade management etc. All these points hit the point home that one really need to understand him/her self and have solid trading plan without which it is a recipe for disaster. I am anxiously waiting for these videos, to learn from experienced trader and improve my skills. Thanks”. – Imtiaz

Reply from Ken: Hi Imtiaz, I agree with you — especially what you say about needing a specific trading plan that’s followed, using all the techniques is important… good points, thanks!

July 22, 8:38AM

“I want to really learn how to trade ETF’s, cause they almost never gap, and you can trade them like you do stocks. I like to swing trade, so learning how to scan the list of a few ETF with high ATR would be great. And of course, having a plan to follow each and everytime would be great.” – Penny F.

July 21, 5:17PM

“Ken – This is my second year trading. After a good first year, I had a complete reversal this year and stopped trading for the summer. I’ve been reading and researching and I’m just about ready to return to the market after watching your videos about ETF’s. I feel that I have a solid strategy now and I’m ready to “go back in”. Thanks for the education you provide through your videos and interviews.” – Helen G.

Reply from Ken: That’s good to hear you’re getting back into it; agree this summer has been relatively choppy and difficult… the key is learning strategies like 3-day pivots (covered in ETFMastery DVD #6) to take advantage of the brief, volatile runs we’ve been seeing lately, without getting chopped up during reversals and pivots. Glad to be of help; best wishes for success in getting back into trading this year!

July 18, 11:04PM

“I like the daily chart example in the video, although i do check the hourly, 30 minute 5 minutes…but i do realize that a lot of people/ videos out there most show like day charts…” – Jimmy H.

Reply from Ken: Hi Jimmy, right – that’s one reason I’ve included many examples from multiple timeframes throughout ETF Mastery, to “match up” with different trading styles… it’s a great idea to test out trade entries and exits using different timeframe charts, to see what works best for your trades.

July 18, 8:20AM

“I liked how you showed the use of the 2 day 1 minute chart and the 3 month 1 day chart. I liked both the two day charts and the cup pattern entries” – Edward C.

July 18, 3:48AM

“Wow! Well done Ken. This video really amazed me about the new way to look at a chart and how to prepare ourself before the opening bell rings” Kheng S.

July 18, 3:15AM

“when do you start positions and how often will you be wrong?” – Joe B.

Reply from Ken: Hi Joe, thanks. I start off many ETF positions as small-share swing trades, and then scale into them to build a position using trailing stops to close them out once they’re in the money. For stop-outs, I like to stop out small, to be conservative, and then re-enter on breakouts. One of the advantages to this scale-in approach is that you can still have a relatively high rate of entries that don’t quickly go in your favor, since stops and initial entries are modest. I don’t have a fixed win percentage for you, since it depends on the type of market we have to work with; as a general rule, strong trending markets will produce higher win rates for scaled-in positions, while choppy markets have lower percentages. Smart question.

July 18, 2:48AM

“Swing trade ETF sounds great and I can’t wait to see the rest of the system. Thanks Ken” David W.

July 18, 1:04AM

“Appreciate the practical suggestions as to which time frame charts to watch /use for swing, intra-day and position trading – this practical information is so useful.” Pam T.

Reply from Ken: Hi Pam, thanks… you bring up a great point, which is that it’s very important for traders to be able to quickly pull up a couple of different time interval charts (daily/intraday) to help confirm entries. Many traders get in on weak entries because they don’t know how to master this skill — that’s one core area that traders are trained in with the ETF Mastery system… because it can make a big difference.

July 17, 11:03PM

“Looks very interesting. I like the scaling into trades idea.” Steve A.

July 17, 9:09PM

July 17, 12:38PM

“Many key points of trade plan, setup(s), positon size/scaling & exits… you could get a feel of the trade feature & how it would be covered w/the balance of the video clip on that trade feature. Thanks Ken.” -Dennis D.

July 17, 12:36PM

“I think trading ETFs is a good way to protect yourself from a stock collapse like BP did on the oil leak. The reverse of that is the other day it shot up 3 points after they capped the leak. Being on the wrong side of the market will hurt your profits. Using ETFs will help protect someone from those big swings if caught on the wrong side of a stock. Using stops is always best like you teach already. Watching the ETF Mastery preview video I can see you are teaching users to get in small and built a base after they are making profits.

Using the 55 day chart is a good way to judge direction along with looking for breakouts. Using the 2 day ETFs like the SPY and QQQQ is a good way to tell what direction the markets may open. Also see you were teaching about inside days on them. I think your teachings are great. The best out there in the stock teaching community.

Overall I think the video preview is very nice…Thanks for your time and teachings. You are a credit to the stock learning community.” – Larry W.

Reply from Ken: Hey Larry – thanks very much… Right re the 55d chart and big swings… especially important in volatile markets like we’re seeing lately. You make some excellent points re having enough info in the videos, I’ll add that to new ones… in fact I’ve got an all-new series of videos coming out in addition to the previews to show traders. Thanks very much for the kind words!

July 17, 12:13PM

“Ken, Great video! Not only are you showing us your strategy, but ACTUALLY teaching us “how” to trade. It’s one thing to give a fisherman a net and tell him/her to go fish….it’s another thing to see the actual “Process” being done.

Little nuances of “where are the fish?”, “what signs to look for”, “how to properly use a net”….all add up to Success. We all heard the saying: “Feed a man a fish, feed him for a day….. Teach him to fish, feed him for life”. This is the absolute truth! Ken can “Teach a man to Trade, feed him for life….”

Thanks again, Frank T

July 17, 12:18PM

“It is nice to see instructions by someone who actually trades a real account and shows set-ups in real time and not on past performance. Anyone can look at a previous chart and say well I would have gotten in here and out here. etc..” – John L.

Reply from Ken: I absolutely agree with your point, John. It drives me nuts to see all the bs from “could’ve would’ve” vendors who aren’t genuine traders. Seeing how to trade using actual trade examples from a real working trader can hopefully help traders turn the corner and become more successful, vs “blind leading the blind” approach we’ve seen in other ETF courses on the market, by slick vendors who can’t even prove that they can actually trade successfully using what they’re teaching.

July 17, 11:52AM

“Ken keeps his videos simple but very specific. Excellent risk management information as well as reasons for exits and enteries. Great teacher..” – Phillip B.

July 17, 11:34AM

“It looks great. Look forward to the complete system.” – Dave W

July 17, 11:22AM

“I have been watching you trade your system and this year using etfs has beeen educational. I hear etf this and etf that everywhere. its nice to see a sound way to trade them .thanks for cutting to the chase . I can see how the etf trades fit right in to your system .

I really like using your teachings on stocks and look forward to applying it to etfs. looks like a great fit. In this fast moving market thanks for helping me kick it up to yet another level.” – Sal S.

Reply from Ken: I appreciate it, Sal… good points re applying stock breakout and pivot techniques to ETF trading. There’s many nuances and specific setups that are different, because of the differences in how ETFs trade (for example their ATRs/average ranges are more repeatable, and they don’t have major gaps); so I show everyone exactly how to trade these differences in the ETF Mastery System.

“Entries are always problamatic, but exits are where the real money is earned… anything i can learn to help with scanning and exits is appreciated.” – Neil K.

July 17, 10:54AM

“Great position management through scaling in and out- very professional approach” – Harold H.

July 17, 10:16AM

“Hi Ken,
What I liked most about your video is how it explained every aspect you need to consider to become a successful trader.

To mention a few of those aspects, how you covered entries and exits and trailing stops, drawing in your trendlines, switching from different time frames to suit your trading style, how to read candle signals and patterns, identifying support and resistance areas, position sizing, risk to reward trade management skills, to mention but a few of the areas you covered, and when you put all your education together, you are ultimately able to build confidence with your trading abilty to achieve positive money making results.” – Kaaren W.

Reply from Ken:Thanks, Kaaren — and that’s just in the video previews. The mechanics of the trade, all the specifics (vs just showing a handful of indicators and cherry-picked examples, vs what actually works in real trading) as you’ve outlined are many of the strategies that traders will be shown in the ETF Mastery system. I like the list you’ve provided, it’s an ideal outline for a solid ETF trading plan… thanks!

July 15, 1:12PM

“Good video with helpful ideas. Look forward to the preview for day trading etfs!” – Helen G.

July 13, 8:55AM
