About Al Brooks
Before beginning his trading career, Al Brooks was an ophthalmologist with a degree from the University of Chicago. A highly-sought-after speaker who has lectured at major exchanges and trading conferences around the world, Al is also the author of several best-selling books on the topic of price action and technical analysis. While his books are highly rated, they do have a reputation for being a difficult read – we feel that this course does a great job of presenting his material in a format that’s a bit easier to digest.
What You'll Learn in the Course
Regardless of whether you trade stocks, commodities, Forex, crypto, or another market, if your goal is to learn how to trade price action, this course will provide you with the education needed to take your trading to the next level. Al Brooks’ trading course is delivered digitally and instant access is provided once payment is made. After logging in to the members’ area, you’ll find the entire course neatly organized in a series of e-learning modules, and you can work through the course at your own pace (lifetime access is provided).
We really like the fact that all of the video content is so clearly mapped out – Al tells you exactly what he will be covering at the beginning of each video. You can also speed up or slow down the pace of the videos (.5x to 4x) and can mark each lesson as “completed” while working through the content.
Before jumping into a detailed overview of the course content, it’s important to note that there are two versions of Al’s course available: the standard version, and one that is focused specifically on Forex trading. The content covered in both the standard and Forex versions of the course is essentially identical, except for the chart examples used. Also, full English subtitles are available for all videos – Portuguese and Spanish subtitles are currently a work in progress.
The introductory section of Al Brooks’ course covers the basics of chart reading and price action. In these videos, Al reviews terminology, candlestick patterns, his trading desk setup, traits of successful traders, the importance of controlling emotions, and market cycles. He also discusses channels, breakouts, trading ranges, support and resistance, trend reversals, exhaustion, and trade management (scaling, protective stop loss orders, etc.).
Depending on one’s experience level, it may be tempting to skip over this introductory section of the course but we strongly recommend that you take the time to work through each of these modules in the order they’re presented. The information contained in this section lays an important foundation for the rest of the course and is time well-spent.
After laying out the fundamentals, Al Brooks dives into the meat and potatoes of his price action trading system. This exhaustive series of video lessons covers nearly every aspect of day trading price action, including patterns, trading different times of the day, scalping vs. swing trading, and proper risk management.
While there are times throughout this course where things may seem to get a bit repetitive, this is entirely by design. The course is structured in a way that continually reinforces the concepts Al introduces, and as you work through each module, you will begin to see the topic of price action through the lens of a true master.
Following the two main sections of the Brooks Trading Course, there is a follow-up module of bonus videos which includes more than 8 hours of additional content. Covered in this section of the course are some extremely valuable lessons, including trading the open and final hour, end-of-day traps, channel trading, psychology, day trading options, and more.
Like Dr. Brooks, I too am a physician who is quite capable in medicine. I am also a 25-year trader, having spent years trying to learn the craft. Unfortunately, unlike Dr. Brooks, I remain mediocre at trading at best. Many other physicians come to me for medical treatment. No one comes to me to learn how to trade, so take this for what it is worth.
I have traded side by side with Mark Cook and watched him make tons of money in real time, while chatting with Marty Schwartz (pit bull). I have traded using market profile with Jim Dalton and Terry Lieberman (owner of Windotrader and one of the finest men in the business). I have been in countless chat rooms and trading rooms. I have used a multitude of chart studies and methods, but I will make money for months, then lose money. It quite possibly is me and I don’t know if I will do better with Brooks methodology or not. What I can say unequivocally is that the degree of effort Dr. Brooks puts into trying to teach far outweighs most of what i have seen in trading. For now, having been through the Brooks videos once, I will say that I think his methodology, his insight, his teaching, is superb. Not only will I continue to study this, but I hope one day to meet him.
Best of the best…
I tried a lot of courses but this is the best of the best.
The course is great in so many ways, and has improved my trading for sure. But man is his teaching style slow, boring and takes a million years to get to the point. Teaching is not the guy’s strong suit, actually understanding the market and analyzing it is.
I wish he came up some day with a course that’s more intuitive. And I don’t think learning trading should be fun or easy, that’s not my point, but some people have a way of teaching the same information that is better and more to the point, and with a less monotonous voice.
All of this being said, the course and the info it contains is excellent!
Honestly Al brooks is a genius and I think anyone interested in the study of price action would see that, I have seen alot of butthurt articles from reviewers who want to see his personal results but the best proof is in the results of his students, I know many successful traders who apply principles Al teaches some may very well have learned on their own but they all use similar signals, context and management.
The impact this course had on my first year of trading was profound and helped me develop my own style beyond anything I would have achieved in 4 or 5 years.
