I wanted to learn to become a successful trader, then came across the website that offering a master class trading course that contains all trading educations. It cost me $4,999 to purchase the course. They told me it comes with unlimited support. Unfortunately that was not the case, after the third support request they told me that my support certificate is no longer valid, they could not find it in their data base.

Now the company does not offer Master class, they change it to Beginners, Sell Short, Traders Series, Options Essentials and Cloud Industry. So that is how this Martha Stokes and Howard Johnson make money. 

They are not a trader, they just people who want to make money by selling the course that does not make sense. when you ask for help they are not always there for you. What I can say is do not come near it. They are like a hungry lion. They are the same as bettertrades and other bunch of others.

Technitrader is by no means a rip off

AUTHOR: honest - (USA)

I have taken over 12 of Technitrader courses and have been very pleased. Thier staff is excelant. Like ANY Serious course you MUST put in the time and effort to learn. To say Technitrader is a Scam is an out right lie. They are extremly profestional , if you did not understand the course is by no means Technitraders fault. Think about that : )  I know 1st hand for over 6 years that they do not Leave you hanging , just the oppisit they answer emails same day and phone calls if needed. They have for me.  Highly recommend Technitrader if you are serious about learning the stock market , IT WIL TAKE you a year or two as it is the same caliber as a major college course

Thankful to TechniTrader

AUTHOR: Rusty - (USA)

 Prior to taking their ME10 position Trading course I had bought other programs, joined chat rooms, and subscribed to newsletters. All of this cost me many thousands. I realized my problem really was not knowing enough to do my own analyses. The ME10 course took me from knowing little to fully understanding how candlesticks work, how to minimize risk, and how to do my own analyses. Further, I have asked many questions after taking the course, every one of which they answered with patience and true concern for my needs. Howard Johnson also spent a couple of hours with me one Saturday to help me figure out a strategy for going full time. I cannot imagine anyone taking their courses and not feeling that the knowledges gained was well worth the price.

My experience is totally different!

AUTHOR: Dennisst99 - (United States of America)

I have been a student with TechniTrader for about 5 months now and I have nothing but praise for the education and customer service that I have received from the staff of Technitrader.

Martha and Howard are both professional traders who have put together a top-shelf, affordable  educational program along with a first-rate staff who responds quickly to any questions (no matter how dumb) that a student submits.

Prior to purchasing their ME10 Methodology course (which is their begging tier) I researched several other companies and found that in most cases the course prices generally started at around $5000.00 but quickly jumped to over $20,000 by the time you added the necessary follow-up modules. In comparison, the ME10 Methodology course was around $2000.00 and included nearly 26 hours of DVD instruction, 5 weeks of follow-up instruction and a 1 month subscription to their ongoing news and continuing education report. (Further months are completely electable at the students request and billed at a very reasonable price.) 

I don't know either Martha or Howard personally but the education and common sense approach that they bring to trader education is very refreshing and has so far been profitable to me.  Between them I would estimate they have around 45 years of experience as traders. People with that kind of experience who strive to convey their knowledge deserve compensation and as I said before, I believe they have made this a very affordable and highly educational course.

TechniTrader response to Jessica

TechniTrader appreciates that Jessica has come forward to notify us that another company or individual, is fraudulently using our Federally and Internationally Registered Trademark name TechniTrader or are falsely representing themselves as being associated with our company.  

It is unfortunate that Jessica may have been the victim of illegal activity.  We can verify without a doubt that there is no one by the first name of Jessica who lives in the state of Idaho in our student base, or who has ever purchased any official TechniTrader course, seminar, or training. In addition TechniTrader does not have any course called Master Course and does not currently have, nor has ever had any course that sells for $4995.
