How Do I Join This Great Program?
Joining our superb program couldn’t be easier.
Simply click on the ‘Join Black Dog' link in the menu up above and follow the instructions. This will take you to a safe and secure Paypal login page. You do not need to have a Paypal account and you can use your credit card quite safely.
Black Dog Forex DOES NOT require any sort of payment details from you including card numbers, your name, address, phone number, or ANY details at all. This is all done by Paypal.
Paypal is the ONLY automatic payment medium that we use. This will get you into the members area immediately.
If you decide to join the Dogs that is fantastic. If not, well that is also fantastic and I wish you well in your trading.
There are two systems to start with – Modules 1 & 2. Black Dog Basic and MTF2. They are similar but MTF2 generates more opportunities with slightly different settings.
Later in the course we have BDQF which is my all-time favourite. We used to have this as a starter method but have now added to it to make it more potent so it is best kept for later. All of our methods are based on a theme with the next improving upon the previous. So, we have Black Dog Basic – MTF2 – and BDQF. All excellent ways to trade the markets.
All and any updates are directly added to this members site to which you have constant access, there are plenty of other free downloads, plus our Training & Trading Room later in the course. For Support, please read the section below.
Once you become a member you will have access to all sections of the website by one module at a time. This allows plenty of time for study as things move along in a logical progression.
Unfortunately we have no facilities at the moment for offering trials of our program.
Using The Black Dogs
Most traders tend to be sat by themselves day in and day out – day after day staring at their screens. Not a very happy state of affairs it’s true. That could describe me for the first few years where it was almost impossible to get any kind of support, any kind of feedback on if I was doing things correctly or not. Thankfully, that is not the case with Black Dog.
We have our Trading Room where many of our regulars hang out for most of the trading day with other traders from around the globe. People start popping in from London open til NY close. Our room never closes but people drift away come later in the day. Charts are posted and discussed – entries mentioned – stops – in fact, anything to do with trading the Dogs.
It must be said that you will need the first four or five modules under your belt otherwise you will not know what we are talking about. There will be an invite for you to join our Trading Room further into the course as you become better acquainted with the Dogs. Not only trading but any questions are welcome. If you don’t ask, the answer is always ‘no.’
As far as I am aware, the Black Dogs will not work on other software such as eSignal, Tradestation, etc.
It must be stated here quite clearly that I am not a computer wizard by any stretch of the imagination. There are probably people out there who could make this work on software other than Metatrader but I am not aware if this has been achieved.
The downloads of the indicators and templates are in .ex4 .mq4 and .tpl format which are Metatrader file types and not compatible with other software. Metatrader is free to download with a free data supply. Why not try it?
This is a subject I know very little about. I’m a dyed-in-the-wool candles man and haven’t even looked at anything else in years. We do have several members who use Black Dog methods with those other set-ups and apparently they do ok. So the answer is a yes, you can use Renko and Range Bars but unfortunately I can offer no assistance for you.
The Trading Room is the place to be.
This all depends what you can pull up on your Metatrader and what your broker offers you. If there is a market you want to trade and you cannot find it, your broker will often make it available, though not always. I have plenty to go at, though I like to keep my choices limited. Too many open charts will only cause confusion. My broker offers forex, indices, metals, some commodities, US & UK stocks, Nasdaq stocks etc. But I only have four charts open.
What are the best pairs to trade? A difficult question but you will have a ‘feel’ for your own currency so probably best to make a start there. Otherwise stay with the currencies that are most widely traded such as crossed pairs of the Euro, USD, GBP, and YEN. The Swiss Franc and AUD are usually pretty good too. But again, don’t try to trade too many as you will only cause brain strain. The best traders trade one only.
In short, no.
A certain amount of discretion is required to trade the systems but even new traders are mailing me to say how well they are doing with the Dogs. We have rules in place to protect us and to get us into the moves, these rules are not difficult to follow. Our long-time members have been with us for a long time for a reason..!!
Fully mechanical systems get you into trades which you should not be in – that costs you money and we don’t want that. No sir.
The idea with trading is to make money – not act like a robot and pay extortionate sums for the privilege of losing money. We need to get real, there is NOTHING out there that will just throw money at you without some initial effort.
Everything is pre-set for downloading. You may alter them but it is not recommended. All you need to do is apply whichever template you require to a chart and it will do the setting up for you.
There is no optimisation or curve fitting required.
You may set up the Black Dog charts on as many computers as you wish.
Some people have it set up at home, one on a laptop, and also at work..!!
Be assured that there are no guarantees in forex, or any trading. If you see a guarantee that states you will make a fortune every day, it is probably a scam. You cannot guarantee that you will use the program as described. No-one can guarantee the data from the broker. You cannot guarantee that you will put in the effort. No one can guarantee that the market will not be flat – etc etc…
How can all traders use the same system exactly and achieve the same results? It is not possible. It is highly unlikely. I can safely say though that I think you will be well satisfied with your investment, your level of confidence in trading the markets will grow. I believe very strongly in the Black Dog program having devoted the last seventeen years of my life to it. For me, there is nothing better. There are many who feel the same way.
I sincerely hope not..!!
The Black Dog systems are NOT robotic trading systems, they are not EA’s.
My belief is that EA’s that actually work over a given period of time are a pie-in-the-sky entity. There is no such beast. Think about it. If an EA actually did work would they be selling for $97..!!?
There would not be much change from a million dollars, maybe more.
Do I need to leave the computer switched on while I sleep or at work for the Black Dogs to function?
No. Once you are set up and everything is saved, you can switch off and return to Metatrader at any time. The Black Dog systems will be in your Metatrader templates until you delete them. I just cannot imagine why you would want to do that…
How Does The Member Site Work?
Everything is automatic.
Paypal will send you to a registration page which, when completed, will take you to your Dashboard. You have entered the site immediately..!!
It is now time to study Module 1…..
If you are a member of this site, click on Login in the main menu, enter your Username and Password and click ‘Submit’
This takes you direct to your Dashboard. The Dashboard link is now in the main menu for as long as you are logged in, which makes it easier for navigation.
From your Dashboard you may enter any module that is currently available to you. We will be adding more interesting stuff as time passes.
We had a big problem in the past. All content was available all at the same time. This was not good.
The problem was that members, being human, read everything from start to finish without taking a word in. Nothing was learnt. This resulted in many members not really having a clue how to trade our methods but went ahead anyway with mixed results, also not good. Basically, they did not know what they were doing. This was evident in our Trading Room as many members simply went for the later methods and just skimmed over the beginners stuff. All had to retrace their steps. This was totally my fault as I should have foreseen this happening.
Now, we have a logical progression with time in between to really get to grips with the Dogs. There is nothing difficult about our program but it DOES need to be embedded into the old brain box. In trying to redeem myself each module is released weekly (7 days) which gives ample time to read and study everything in that module and connect it to the previous one. This seven days cannot be altered without a mountain of work. Please do not ask.
Unfortunately this sometimes happens when a ‘member’ decides to make a few extra bucks by plagiarizing the Dogs as his own, or simply downright selling them as is. This is theft of Intellectual Property and we can only bring the full weight of the law to bear.
To combat this there is a small piece of code embedded into every page on this site which is unique to the member or User of the membership site who prints or copies that page. This will help in identifying those who wish to break the law.
This site carries out IP Logging. What this means basically is that it automatically remembers your IP address every time that you log in. If someone else logs in with the same details at the same address or another IP address in the same day then the account becomes frozen. This is to discourage the sharing of Usernames and Passwords which, in its simplest form, amounts to theft.
At the present time there are no plans for this on a regular basis. Maybe at some time in the future it may be possible to have pre-set timings for training on a (say) weekly basis but at the moment there is no time available.
Having said that, and time permitting, we have our Training & Trading Room where our regulars gather on a daily basis. We often have a Skype session for those members where we sometimes use Teamviewer to view my charts. I enjoy these sessions and get to know the members too, and vice versa. In the past we have had five or ten members per session and they have been most enjoyable.
Trading must come first though, we have these sessions when the market is fairly flat and there is not much on the horizon.
Personally, I do not possess such an infernal machine..!!
I like e-mail because of time constraints but Skype is better, which is available to Black Dog members only. I can accept Skype contact requests from members only I’m afraid. Things would tend to get a little too busy otherwise. I do like to trade too!
I can assure you that ALL mails will receive a timely reply if using the Contact link at the bottom of the page. For me, phones are a no-no, they are too distracting during the trading day.
You will not be short of a shoulder to lean on.
There is obviously plenty of information inside the members area but, failing that, you will have e-mail as a first line of defence followed by Skype contact details. Skype is preferred as it is much quicker and we don’t want you to be stuck on any particular point for any length of time. If the need arises then we can always use Teamviewer where I can view your screen and sort your problem in quick time.
Then we have our Training & Trading Room which is usually occupied by regular members from all around the globe who are well-versed in the use of Metatrader and the Dogs. Very helpful people.
The Black Dog Program is famous for its support and we would like to keep that going. Letting people down is NOT part of our remit.
We have Black Dog Basic, MTF2, and BDQF.
We used to have MTF1 and MTF3 but these were shelved as there was just too much information to assimilate. What we have now is a nice balance where it makes for easy learning with fantastic strategies to attack the markets. The markets being: forex, metals, indices, commodities, stocks. Whatever your broker offers you to trade. If you are able to get the chart onto Metatrader then you can trade it using the Black Dogs.
The Black Dog mantra is to keep things simple.
The short answer is no.
Thankfully, Paypal accepts all major credit cards and you should be able to use the Purchase link we have in the main menu up above without creating a Paypal account. Paypal does have other means of accepting payment and it is best to check on their website.
We have no other means of processing payments.
This can sometimes be a problem. We have received many e-mails from people who live in countries where Paypal is not an accepted form of payment. We have no other means.
What has worked before is that if you have a relative or friend who does live in a country where Paypal is accepted where they do the purchase on your behalf. This is acceptable but PLEASE make sure that we know what is happening beforehand as accounts can be frozen when different IP addresses are used on the membership site.
When you decide to join Black Dog, all of your financial details are dealt with by Paypal. They have the latest security industry standards in dealing with online payments. They are the largest company in the world of this type dealing in millions every day, they need to be safe and secure. And they are.
Black Dog Forex neither receives, nor has access to, ANY of your credit card details whatsoever. We DO NOT store that type of information nor do we have the software to do so. Paypal would never share credit card details with anyone or any site.
Black Dog Forex receives only the information that you allow Paypal to send, namely – e-mail address and name. Some invoices show an address though this is irrelevant to Black Dog. We do like to be on first name terms with our members though.
Unfortunately, Paypal is the only means we have of accepting payment that automatically enters you into the site. This is the preferred method. Black Dog uses Paypal for all secure credit card transactions where all orders are processed directly on the Paypal website. Paypal uses the highest industry SSL safeguards so there is no need to worry about security. They have it covered.
I cannot give out bank details for obvious reasons.
We have no other means.
Should you have any questions prior to joining the Black Dog program the quickest way is to use our contact form – link at the top, or bottom, of the page.
ALL e-mails are answered in a timely manner (usually very quickly) and usually the same day. We are happy to answer any and all questions you may have.
Skype is the better option but it must be reserved for members. Displaying Skype usernames only attracts spam and I apologise for that.
