865-436-4724 again any desk clerk can give you directions.....this will end at 8:45am so we can get to the house for the workshop......

9:30am Money Management and we will start out with what I believe is the most important part of any workshop...and that is money management. But this part is also about having problems, fears, depression and so on. Getting out of a slump and how. About believing in yourself and not in some market guru. And how to design a money management system for "your" trading style and then how to monitor it for the best overall results.....

11:30am The "first bar trade" and all the details fit to print.....which ones to avoid, which ones to take and how to manage it......also the three bar reversal and how to manage that one......rules rules and all the rules....along with questions and answers....

12:00...High Noon LUNCH...... Lunch will be from McAllister's Deli....I personally don't like to go to workshop and seminars and the food is something you can't spell or pronounce. So we will have fruit, and all the fixins to make a great sandwich....some potato salad or cole slaw, a nice garden salad and mixed fruit and a dessert for those who didn't eat salad.....ROTFL.........if you have any special needs please let us know so my daughters will be able to have it for you........

1:00pm... Natural Rhythm...
I believe there is a natural order to the market, Fibonacci levels and where they come from and how to use them to find a nice safe low risk...or defined risk I guess would be better trade. One of the people I follow and has given me my edge is Carolyn. You can and should study her work at http://www.fibonacciqueen.com/ and also study the site at http://www.mjbraun.net/ which is Mark's. I am been a student of Robert Krausz for a long time and as part of being his student was being involved in Gann's work with Fibonacci levels. Carolyn started her service about 6 years ago or so and I have been with her ever since, there is a reason.......so we will work thru all the levels to find the ones that matter......but study these site if you haven't already. Mark was a student at one time of Carolyn and since gone out on his own, his work is also solid with no smoke and mirrors.....This section is the first of three parts that will get us to a trading plan by Sunday night and ready to trade live on Monday......

3:30pm...Defining a trend using indicators..... this part of the workshop should be the most interesting as we start to build a trading plan. How many indicators do you need, which ones, what time frame is best and on and on. So, this week I will be snapping charts as the week unfolds and these charts will be used for the workshop, no using charts from 3 years ago that worked perfectly. But rather charts from the unknown at this point in time. It would be a good idea then, as the week unfolds to take notes about problems you are having so we can talk about them since we will be working off the same page.....that is the 9 minute, 3 minute and the 144 tick charts of the ER. But we will define a trend and then define a pullback in the direction of the trend and then even go so far as to define a COUNTER TREND SETUP and when it's safe to actually take that one......
I expect this to go into Sunday also.......since we will be ending up for the day around 5:00pm....

BREAKS: Anyone that knows me knows I could talk about trading long after the cows come home, so we will take breaks when I see that more then 4 people are either praying or taking a nap....about 10-15 minutes so we can all walk around and take a potty break.

6:00pm....DINNER.....I know a few of you would like to tour the house, hug a tree and we have a few inside the house, see my office and so on. So, I have arranged for a hillbilly band to come and play while we eat dinner at the house, open bar....of course. This will give everyone time to talk to the other attendees, network, share stories and whatever. Trading is sometimes a lonely business and this will give you the opportunity to meet others that share a common goal. But at 9:00pm YOU ARE OUT OF HERE!!!!!!!!

SUNDAY Sept 30th
7:45am Breakfast is served at the Pancake Pantry starting a 7:45am, you can't come to Gatlinburg without enjoying some East Tennessee pancakes.......it's located at Pancake Pantry 628 Parkway, Gatlinburg, TN
865-436-4724 again any desk clerk can give you directions.....this will end at 8:45am so we can get to the house for the workshop......

9:30am......Defining a trend using indicators...not sure where we will leave off from yesterday but wherever it is this is where we will pickup on......this part of the workshop is to explore how to develop a trading plan, back test it, keep records or a log, and find out if it's just more noise or something of value. How many indicators do you need, which ones talk the talk and which ones don't walk the walk. By the time we are done with the second part of this you will be ready for the magic.

11:30am.....Market internals.....With 3 case studies in the manuals, two of them for an entire week we start to bring together the natural rhythm, the indicator and the internals. 8 conditions and what they mean and when it's just BSski or noise. Could you trade with just fib levels and the internals? Could you trade with just the internals......WOW!!!! We'll see, but the manual is jammed full of examples.

12:00...High Noon LUNCH......
Lunch will be from McAllister's Deli again ....I personally don't like to go to workshop and seminars and the food is something you can't spell or pronounce. So we will have fruit, and all the fixins to make a great sandwich....some potato salad or cole slaw, a nice garden salad and mixed fruit and a dessert for those who didn't eat salad.....ROTFL.........if you have any special needs please let us know so my daughters will be able to have it for you........

1:00pm......Market Internals......after a nice lunch and before you fall totally asleep we will finish up with the market internals. I know before anyone says anything that this should bring out at least a hundred thousand questions.......so part of this segment will be how to go thru your charts at home and what you need to do so you can it from across the room and under your desk.

3:00pm......Pulling it all together
and defining what we are going to trade....Now that we have the natural order of the market under our belts, and have talked a defined way to look at trend, the pullback, the setup, the trigger, and how to manage the trade we will put a trading plan in writing.....

4:00pm .....The final answer time.....This will be where you can answer questions about, options, bonds, rice, banana puddin or whatever and if I know the answer I will tell ya, if I don't I will tell you that also. But maybe someone else knows the answer and that would be just great if they shared their ideas......

5:00pm.....YOU ARE OUT OF HERE BABY.....This will be around the time we will end for the day and dinner is on your own, hopefully you have made friends with some other guys or couples and will go out to dinner and enjoy the evening busting on each other.....most likely it will be about the workshop so far, but that's OK TOO!!!

MONDAY OCT 1st
7:45am Breakfast is served at the Pancake Pantry starting a 7:45am, you can't come to Gatlinburg without enjoying some East Tennessee pancakes.......it's located at Pancake Pantry 628 Parkway, Gatlinburg, TN
865-436-4724 again any desk clerk can give you directions.....this will end at 8:45am so we can get to the house for the workshop......

9:00am to 9:30am Before I start trading for the day, three representatives from 3 local charities will be at the house, The ASPCA, The Boys and Girls Boys of Gatlinburg and the Good Shepard Clinic. I promised back aways to have a Trade-a-Long at the house once it was finished for my trading buddies, and I will fulfill that promise. As part of this workshop, there is no fee, no BSski to buy, no subscription to sign up for....nothing. But when you get something for nothing, what value does it have in the end......NONE. So, it will be between you and your soul as to what amount you give to these charities, it doesn't matter to me as I don't have to be there when you look into the mirror each morning.........now do I?

9:30am to 4:30pm TRADING BABY TRADING......I will be trading live, real money, most likely a 20 lot unless it turns into a trend day and then there are no limits. While in a trade, or when I see a setup coming, I will talk about it, talk thru it, not around it. There won't be any question or answer period until I say, "Anyone have a question NOW????? " People always want to come and sit next to me and watch me trade and this is your opportunity to do just that. But money is money and BSski is BSski and I take no prisoners....NONE.

4:30pm... one final question...... I think by the time we are done for the day everyone will be spent, but I will have a follow up on questions about whatever. Hopefully as the day unfolds and I am walking around talking to myself most of the questions will be answered.....but you will have 30 minutes to an hour and then it's over, pack up the balloons and head to the airport as I get ready for the next event on Thursday...as United Way fund raiser for 800.........it's Oktoberfest in TENNNESSEEEeeeeeeeeeee.........

ANY QUESTION PLEASE EMAIL ME ASAP:dbolzes@chartertn.net
Also visit http://www.tradersparadise.blogspot.com for updates.

I have had several people say they can come, but then found out they couldn't while other said they would like to come but couldn't and now say they can.......SO, I can totally lost on the count.

Please, re-confirm that you are coming and we need you names, address and phone number OR you wouldn't get on the property. Again, most know about the trouble I have had in the past and we take security very personal here, so the bottom line is....IF YOU AIN"T ON THE LIST.....you ain't going to get past the gate house..........

See ya soon
Dennis......

Is this training education open to anyone, even newcomers to your circle of friends. Neve been to one of those Woodie things before, sounds like that is probably a good thing. Also, how do we email you with questions or interest? I cannot find your email on this site. THANKS >>>>>>>

Hey Sport,

What's the best route from McGhee Tyson to "the Brewery"....my flight lands at 7:10 PM and I will surely be thinking of that Oktoberfest brew and how to get my hands on one as quick as possible!

Dennis,

I sim trade the DAX in the early morning hours as I am still a slave to "the man" during the day.
If you could share any insight on the DAX that you may have during our weekend together, it would be greatly appreciated by at least one.
