Below are listed some of the more Frequently Asked Questions on our Education. However, if you have any other queries, feel free to Contact Us.

Nowhere else will you benefit from the unique, low cost, high value stock and share trading education you will access here.  Here are just 10 reasons why:

 1. In October 2007 Jim Berg was billed at the ATAA 'Pathways to Trading Excellence' Conference in Brisbane as one of  ".... 10 of the most respected Trading Professionals in the world".

2.  From over 40 years of trading experience (18 as a professional broker), Jim Berg has created his own unique JB Volatility Indicators (now in over 20 charting programs globally). 

3. Jim uses these Indicators and his 'Weight-of-Evidence' common sense approach to combine fundamental & technical analysis to filter out WHICH stocks to buy and WHEN, i.e. A Stock/Index/ETF must pass every Entry Rule before he buys. 

4. Jim has spent literally thousands of hours to back test and live test his unique JB Volatility Indicators and profitable Trading System - so you don't have to!  

5. Jim has ONE well tested Trading Plan...... he actually trades what he teaches ......and he publishes the results every week in our mentoring-style 'Investing & Online Trading' Newsletter.

6.  Jim Berg has NOT had 1 major loss in our newsletter portfolio since we started in 2005.

7.  Jim closed our Newsletter Portfolio in January 2008 before the GFC .... and AGAIN before the savage stock market falls in August & September 2011. Those Members who followed his lead did NOT lose Millions of dollars between them.

8. In contrast, as complete novices, John & Angela Atkinson  experienced first hand the cruelty of the market. They listened to a stock broker’s advice to hang on to falling stocks in the tech stock crash of 2000. They lost their Sydney Harbour waterfront home and were set back over 20 years financially as a resuIt.  With over 60 years of combined experience, Jim and John now provide their unique ‘good cop-bad cop’ mentoring-style education, so you’ll discover not only how to make money from Jim Berg, but also how to avoid the pitfalls of the stock market. 

9. Since 1996 Jim Berg has taught thousands of traders and investors like you how to successfully trade markets around the world - including USA, Australia, across Europe and Asia.

10. Low cost, High Value stock & share trading & investing education: Look closely at many other educators and here's what you'll find: 

A) Many will try to charge you in the order of $10,000 to $15,000 - we do NOT believe you need to pay anything like that!

B) Most will show you all sorts of indicators, patterns, time frames, & trading instruments -- to baffle you with science ... 

C) … BUT in the end most of them LEAVE IT TO YOU to sort out which ones to use - then you're left on your own to try & develop a trading system that actually works 

D) The reality is - you'll find very, very few other educators are prepared to put their head on the block and show you EXACTLY what they do .......... 

E) … And even fewer demonstrate a proven system 'live' week by week in a published portfolio - so you can see it working profitably, real time....... 

In contrast, here you’ll benefit from our low cost, high value education -  in our Investing and Online Trading’ stock market Report  and Jim and John’s other resources at this site. 

You will also gain access to all the exact Trading Rules Jim Berg has developed over 30 years and now uses for his own common sense stock Trading and Investing  Plan.

Jim Berg says: 

“ In a nutshell, here is my common sense approach: 

1) I invest in stocks when the market is rising and the stocks meet my entry rules....... and switch to cash when my exit conditions have been triggered - for example, from January 2008 to June 2009 and again in July 2011.

2) I put a lot of thought into creating and testing my System. My trading is mechanical and thoroughly back-tested - to ensure it works and is profitable. In the middle of a trade I don’t think about what I need to be doing. 

3) I react to price movements by simply following my proven & written-down Rules -- so I know:

o    How to filter WHICH Stocks to Buy &

o    When to BUY &

o    When to Hold .... & very importantly

o    Precisely WHEN to SELL. 

4) My short term trades often last a few days to a few weeks. My longer term trades (e.g. in my own SMSF Retirement Fund) typically last a few weeks to several months in a rising market. I switch to cash and do not invest when the market is falling. 

5) I monitor my short term trades after the market has closed using end-of-day charts. My longer term investments I manage using weekly charts once a week. 

This approach frees up my time. It will also allow you the freedom to live your life - without having to sit in front of a screen all day ...... 

As part of our mentoring-style newsletter each week, I detail exactly: 

i) How I analyse and filter a list of 5 stocks, as recommended by so-called 'experts', to determine which (if any) pass my own Trading/Investing Rules. 

ii) How I manage a notional portfolio 'real time'- to show you WHEN I Buy, Hold and Sell.”

You'll find the easiest way is to have someone take you, step by step, through a series of their trades. 

That way you'll learn their complete trading strategy, including their entry, stops, exits, risk management and why and how they act/react to price moves. 

There are hundreds of ways to trade the market, some much better than others. That’s why it’s important to: 

  1. Find yourself a successful mentor who is willing to show you exactly what they do
  2.  Make sure their approach suits your personality, lifestyle and circumstances
  3. Educate yourself thoroughly in their Trading System, Money and Risk Management, BEFORE you invest a single dollar into the stock or share market 
  4. Back-test their system thoroughly on historic charts then in real time to ensure you can trade profitably and safely on paper  - before you begin trading live
