Knowledge increases in proportion to its use - that is, the more we teach, the more we learn. ~ Helena Petrovna Blavatsky 1876

I'll never forget the first time I read that quote.

It started me down a path over 20 years ago that I'm still on.

Candlestick charts draw a picture for us once you know how to use them. I think that Candlesticks are probably best known for spotting reversals in the current trend. While that is true it's only part of what they can tell us.

Japanese merchants (traders at the time) were using Candlesticks centuries ago. Some people today still acknowledge them as the best traders in history.

While price action tells us what the markets actually did that day, Candlesticks help tell us what the underlying emotions of the market were. For traders, this is invaluable information.

I've been an avid user of Candlesticks since the early 2000s and they have literally become one of the most important tools I have. They have saved me from disastrous trades as well as pointed out some incredibly profitable trades. Over time, they have become a trusted friend.

I think we all want to become better traders. I know I do and Candlesticks have done just that; they have made me a better trader.

Common Sense Candlesticks has two types of traders in mind: those that don't know a Candlestick from a fence post and those who feel like they know something about them and really want to get a much more extensive understanding of how and why they work so well. Both types of traders will benefit from this course.

I'm going to cover all the major Candlestick patterns in depth; Doji, Engulfing patterns, Morning and Evening Stars (actually the same thing as my Blips patterns), and a few dozen more. 

Certain Candlestick patterns are much more important than others. I will focus on them, in-depth, with 100's of examples along the way on charts and the videos. I won't just show you what they look like, that's easy, but I'm going to explain to you what they mean and the psychology behind them. I think this will be enlightening for everyone.

Now you might be wondering how I learned to use Japanese Candlesticks and that's a fair question. I'm glancing over to my bookshelf now and I count eight different books and several courses (dating back to VHS days). I've been to several seminars on how to use candles and co-hosted a seminar with Steve Nison in Atlanta. Steve is the man who brought Candlesticks to the West and is responsible for having Candlestick charts on every charting software program on the market.

It took me years of study, not to mention a lot of money to learn what I know about Candlesticks. Do I know everything there is to know? Of course not, no one does. As I continue writing this course I will learn even more and so will some of you. More on that in a minute.

As I mentioned in the email you received with the link to this page, I'm currently writing this course. I've completed the first section and just doing some final edits on it. It's going to take me about six to eight weeks to complete the course. My good friend Lan Turner would call this a S.W.A.G. which means it's a scientific wild-ass guess. Hopefully, I will be able to complete the course during that time frame.

Here's The Deal - But It's Limited To Just 10 People

Remember the quote? 

Knowledge increases in proportion to its use - that is, the more we teach, the more we learn. ~

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky 1876

Well, I'm going to teach up to 10 people during the time I'm writing the course. I need these 10 people to act as my eyes and ears. What I mean is they will read the course content as I write it, and watch the videos as I post them. 


I can promise that if you are one of the 10 people that work with me and give me feedback you will learn much more than you would if you were to purchase the course when it's completed.

I'm creating the course online, right along with the other courses. No one else can see the course until I make it "Public". The 10 people will of course have access to it as I am writing it along with the videos.

I'm also going to have a separate group, like with the Commodities and Options course have that will be available for these 10 people. It's hidden so no one else can see it. This is where all the comments, suggestions, etc. will go. Everyone will be able to see what the others are saying. This is going to make the course much better for everyone.

Every time I finish a chapter I will schedule a private Webinar that everyone who can attend will be able to discuss the course as we go along. If you can't make the Webinar, it will be recorded and the like added to the Group for the course.

When The Course Is Finished It Will Be Between $400 To $500

This course may end up being the biggest course I've ever written. I know it will be the most detailed for sure. It should end up being about 20 chapters and each chapter should have between 5 to 10 videos! That's an incredible amount of valuable content.

I really don't think that it will take more than an hour or two a week to review what I wrote that week. 


If someone can't do their part, that's okay but I reserve the right to replace them with someone who has more time to work with the team. They will still have access to the completed course when it's done though.

So, if you are interested in doing this you are only going to pay $195.00 for the course now and nothing else later. This is a $200 to $300 discount on what the final course will sell for. You will also get credit in the course for being part of the initial Team of 10.

Let's get started!
