JOIN THE DISCUSSION
Mark Minervini’s premium subscription-based membership website, Minervini Private Access (MPA) provides subscribers with a unique opportunity to trade with and learn from one of the best traders in the industry today. Far more than a run-of-the-mill stock newsletter, Minervini Private Access is a comprehensive trading education platform that includes real-time trading alerts, top-shelf market commentary, weekly study sessions, Q&A, and much more.
Most members of MPA were initially introduced to Mark’s high-performance SEPA trading strategy through his bestselling books. Trade Like a Stock Market Wizard and Think & Trade Like a Champion are two of our all-time favorites and they provide foundational information for Mark’s trading system. Minervini Private Access builds on what is taught in those books, providing the essential hands-on experience that’s necessary to truly learn Mark’s approach to buying and selling stocks.

About Mark Minervini
A veteran stock trader with nearly four decades of trading experience, Mark Minervini is no stranger to above-average market returns. His SEPA (Specific Entry Point Analysis) strategy identifies stocks that are capable of delivering the superperformance that resulted in his U.S. Investing Championship win in 1997.
What's Included with Minervini Private Access
As mentioned, Minervini Private Access is a comprehensive educational package that includes many features and tools designed to take your trading to the next level. While many so-called trading gurus desire a following that’s fully dependent on them (and their products), Mark Minervini’s goal with both his MPA service and annual Master Traders Program is to train people to become completely independent traders. This is an important distinction, and Minervini Private Access provides a very unique opportunity to learn trading firsthand from one of the world’s finest.
After signing up for Minervini Private Access, your account will immediately be set up and Mark’s staff will email you the login information needed to access the member’s area. Once inside, you’ll have full access to all of the tools and features of MPA — before jumping into everything, though, we highly recommend that you take a few minutes to check out the User Guide as it explains more about the various sections in the site’s back-end and the terms used.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at all of the features and functionality included in Minervini’s MPA membership…
As we mentioned, the User Guide is the very first place that new members should go after logging into the MPA members’ area. This section of the site provides you with an explanation of the terms you’ll see used in the community as well as the answers to some commonly asked questions. There’s also a New Subscriber Tutorial in the video archive area that is helpful to review.
The MPA Live Stream page is one of the most important areas on the website and it’s something that you should keep open during the trading day. In the morning before the open, Mark always provides some general market commentary, updates the stops on all open positions, and notifies members of any names that are on close watch (“Buy Alert”/”Sell Alert”). Throughout the trading day, Mark also provides additional information and real-time updates whenever he buys and sells stocks.
In the Buy Alerts area, you’ll get daily updates of stocks that are on Mark’s watch list. The phrase “Buy Alert” is slightly confusing as it is only stocks that are being closely monitored for potential buy (and sell) setups. This section is cleared out at the beginning of each week and updated with new names.
The interactive training room is hosted on Webinato and it’s where the weekly study sessions take place. These are very valuable calls that provide you with great insight into Mark’s mindset as he reviews charts and teaches MPA members additional detail regarding his stock selection process. In addition to Mark, these live training webinars often feature David Ryan, Mark Ritchie II, and Minervini’s assistant, Bob Weissman. All of the sessions are recorded and conveniently made available in the video archives area for later reference.
As mentioned, the video lesson archive contains all of the previously recorded study sessions. Currently, there are video lessons that go back to October of 2013, providing new members with a full library of high-level instructional videos to learn from. While you can play these videos through the website, we’d highly recommend downloading them for two reasons:
- Browser-based video playback doesn’t provide you with a way to speed things up. We prefer to download the video files and play them back through VLC Media Player which gives you the option to increase playback speed.
- If Mark decides to discontinue MPA at some point, having a downloaded copy of all video lessons will allow you to refer back to the information at any time in the future.
The Post Archive area allows you to review Mark’s daily posts that appeared previously on the Live Stream page. At the moment, the archive allows you to go back to August of 2019.
The MPA members’ area features a built-in portfolio tracker that allows you to log all of your trades. You can view your open trades, closed trades, and even export the information to a .CSV file. Additionally, there’s a handy monthly tracker that displays the following statistics:
- Average gain
- Average loss
- Win %
- Loss %
- # of wins
- # of losses
- Total number of trades
- Largest gain
- Largest loss
- Average days gain
- Average days losses
- Trading commissions
Mark also provides several trade calculator tools in the members’ area. Under the Analytics tab, you’ll find a DRMA tool, RBAF calculator, % risk calculator, and $ risk calculator.
Minervini Private Access now provides subscribers with a convenient mobile app that makes it easy to access the site remotely and receive update notifications. The app is available for both iOS and Android users and you can log in to the app using your normal login credentials.
Last but not least, MPA offers a Symbol Dropbox feature that gives members a quick and easy way to directly submit tickers to Mark throughout the week. Mark reviews all member-submitted names and if they meet his criteria, they’re added to MPA’s Buy Alert list.
Way too many signals…
Watchlist can be worth it, but the Buy Now signals are ALWAYS extended and even buy stops are already gone most of the time, not to mention up to 5% slippage when 500 stop loss orders all get hit simultaneously. Way too many signals because “people need their stock picks”, so you trade off a big winner for something mediocre with a 50% chance of losing. By the way, only a sucker would go into a big trade with an 8% stop loss. Champion traders lose far less. By the way, the trade accounting software is very primitive, not really useable on a pro basis. By the way, MM has completely worked himself out of the in-person training sessions. It’s just a lot of dumb questions with Mark Ritchie agreeing with whatever Bob says.

Mark Minervini Super Trader Tactics [VIDEO]
While MPA is an expensive investment, it's something that you can leverage if you treat it as more than a stock picks newsletter. For serious traders who take advantage of all the site has to offer (vs. simply following buy/sell recommendations from Mark), it's a tremendous opportunity to learn from the best and an investment that can set you up for life. As with anything else, you'll get out of MPA what you invest into it in terms of time and effort, and those who immerse themselves in the training and internalize Mark's system will find the cost of the membership to be well worthwhile.
