Thank you so much for all you do L.A. The other day when I couldn't find the links, it was in my spam for some reason. Hopefully I won't bother you again with such a trivial issue. Take this opportunity to let you know how much you have helped me with trading and everything since joining recently. I really feel lucky to have you as a "coach". I know I have lots of things I need to work on, but feel really optimistic about the future. If you are ever in Las Vegas for a convention or whatever, it would be my pleasure to give you a lift to your hotel or anything I can do to help you out.
You are that beacon light in the stormy sea for me. Thanks for all that you do.
I've been entering Canadian market symbols and they are starting to show up in the Trading Cube and Charts. Thanks for adding Canadian market capabilities to your services! I truly appreciate your responsiveness.
Hi, I have made $811 this week using only 33% of my portfolio. Thank you! On Feb. 3rd I will subscribe for a yearly subscription on the website.
I know you're in-transit, else otherwise highly occupied right now with the show. But I wanted to drop you a quick line...once more, it seems...
In retirement I find myself distracted from investing (money) into investing in some of the fun things I always wanted to do but had to defer while having a job, raising a family, and so forth.
I retired not rich, not even really well-to-do and in fact probably very low by your standards; but I am retired very comfortably and have little room for complaint as I scan around the so many people who live as closely day to day as they do.
So, living on a modest, but comfortable fixed income, I am more concerned about capital preservation (as all should be at all ages, I suppose) than massive appreciation at the price of more risk than I am comfortable. I cannot fail to invest, as I hope to live another generational period, but I cannot afford to lose substantial capital, either.
This most recent downturn has been probably the third or fourth time that working with you on the intermediate time frame has saved my bacon (n.b. that includes the BIG downturn)! My loss in the very most recent downturn has been at about 1/2 of 1%!! With your general market guidance, I have been able to keep a 401k equivalent at almost exactly what its funding was when I retired, now nearly 4 years ago, while at the same time making meaningful monthly withdrawals.
I know, understand, and appreciate that to many this may sound like a back-handed compliment, but that's simply not so to me who lives on a modest fixed income. Keeping this ancillary nest egg to my annuity viable makes the difference between simply getting by and having some joy in these important years.
L.A., you've made a difference. Never having met you, though feeling as though I know you, I think you'll find satisfaction in that assertion. Given the paltry amount I send you each year, I've "saved" 10, maybe 20 times the losses I would otherwise have had. The difference in life style, well, as they say, "priceless." I hope all will understand your FIRST principle: capital preservation!
So thanks again, even though I don't seem to be able to be sufficiently competent to work on the shorter than intermediate timeframes.
As I read your morning comments I am impressed (amazed) by your work. Your tenacity and intelligence are to be admired. Thanks for the updates and continued program improvements.
Thank you for the encouragement to become familiar with trend qualification and money management through book study.
I listened to the Thursday night’s commentary and I really enjoy your point of view.
The way you explain your setups and the way you answer questions I can tell you have been at this a long time.
I’m reading another book right now it’s ( The Master Swing Trader by Alan Farley)its ok!
He uses all the trend lines, RSI, MACd, B Bands, and patterns. I have read several books on trading and until I read your book none of them gave me feeling that using there techniques would really give me an edge at reading stocks or the market as a whole. I really never wanted to give swing trading a chance because it seemed to simplistic. I wouldn’t have read your book but the title: Trend Qualification & trading perked my interest.
I glad I read it because you have added a new dimension to analyzing the markets. Thank You!

I have subscribed to quite a few stock market services over the years and you are off the charts for value. A big thanks.
Mr. Little I can't thank you enough. I will even go so far as to say that you have been my most reliable and best adviser in terms of seeing the big picture and cutting through the emotional and biased information that is so prevalent out there. You apply a scientific and well thought out approach and I like the way you think, speak and write. Thanks to your foresight, I am up for the year and sidestepped the major crises and was cautious on the returns, not ever being greedy. I look forward to another year of following with you. I'm sorry about you dear friend's sickness and I wish you great health and happiness in the years to come. You are very, very much appreciated.
Thanks, L.A, for all you do. While I don’t articulate it to my family who simply are not into this stuff in the same way I am, nonetheless I privately gave you mention in my thanksgiving thoughts.
Seeing your thoughts unfold for the last few weeks, I finished putting all my tsp (federal equivalent of 401k) into cash at COB 11/18/11. I’ve been getting “short” via my 3x etfs. And today, I was willing to take a few losses on some of my longs to reduce further potential losses and gather a little bit of powder, either to keep in reserve or to devote to more 3x bear etfs, depending upon how this all unfolds (others I left long, strategically, just to keep throughout the storm and to hedge if we end up being wrong about where we’re going). This isn’t a lot of money in what I trade...only about 15k, but I’ve seen good improvement in my track record over the last year, largely based on your many thoughts (even, mostly, from the free stuff). Maybe, when this is all over, it will be more like 20k!!!!
So, yeah, I AM the classical “Little Guy.” And I don’t have the agility or sufficient courage of my convictions to ever be more than that (although I am, slowly, becoming more “daring!”), preferring many 1st base hits to the home run. But it has been through your capital preservation assistance more than anything else that has saved me, repeatedly, from big losses. And even when wrong, well, maybe I missed some appreciation, but greed is not what this is all about. For your help, I am truly grateful. Thanks for teaching!!
The TnT, Teaching and Trading chat room, is exactly what I needed to maximize my trading potential. LA Little's technical analysis, educational approach and stock market experience is truly unparalleled. The consistent daily profits I realize, combined with preservation of capital , is allowing me to make money, safely, that I never thought possible.
Hi, my name is Arnold and I am an senior associate with a large financial planning firm in Canada and have been for more than 30 years. My days work is full with clients that need financial planning assistance so I have little time to trade during the day. When I manage to get away, I have found that M Little is one of the best trading teachers in the business, his articles take little time to read and are very accurate.
I was privileged to take part in the Beta trial and I have used it on a regular basis since the beginning. I have learned more about trading in the past couple months than in my entire career, I am a financial planner and not a professional trader nor a broker. Oh, and by the way, I have put many dollars in my pocket by applying M Little’s teachings.
I subscribe to many new letters and sites that have different techniques and advice, I am at the point that I will reduce that number and concentrate on the ones that contribute to my learning and my profitability. M Little is on the top of my list to keep and apply his techniques. As a financial planner, my goal is to Build, Organize and Transfer Wealth to the next generation. Thank you M Little in giving me the tools to help my clients achieve their goals and my own of course.
As I say to my clients and friends, "trading is for adults only" and 21 years old does not necessarily make you an adult.
L.A., I am really enjoying your Premium Service and your newest book. I read part 1 twice and have just started part 2. I was having difficulty in my trading, and I can already see how powerful trend qualification is. I made enough money on HXL (your suggestion) to pay for the Premium Service, and probably several times more than that on my picks utilizing trend qualification as I understand it at this point…really good stuff.
I have been at home trading on my own for a few years now. The ups and down of the market were frustrating and eating away at my capital. Even worse I had to trade on my own because my bank's portfolio manager was just letting my portfolio bleed out money. Then I found TA Today with LA. Little and wow what a difference.
