Tremendous Opportunity - Thank You

I purchased your trading course (12 month) approximately one month ago, I am so very glad I did. The information, delivery, and methodology is simple and very well explained. I am extremely pleased and sincerely thankful for you making this information available. Your teaching style helps build confidence and provides a strong understanding of how the stock market operates.

I had no previous experience with the stock market. Like most, the market appeared complex, confusing, and overwhelming to navigate. I actually didn’t know where to begin.

I fortunately came across your course in my research, it is unlike any other course available. Your personal attention, guidance, sincerity, and candid honesty sets you apart. The fact that I am able to call / text you with questions is remarkable.

I am confident, with continued determination and progressive experience I will be successful establishing a new income stream.

I highly recommend to anyone who has interest in learning about trading and creating a new and perhaps life-changing financial opportunity needs to make this small investment in themselves, I am so very glad I did.

Thank you Mike.

Excellent course!

Hi Mike,

 I want to thank you for the opportunity The Trading Template course has given me. Before I came across you, I was looking for a trading course that felt right for me. I spent a long time searching videos and trying to understand other trading methods and everything seemed so cookie cutter, and very technical. Then I found your video and it felt very down to earth and genuine. I said to myself, “This is the guy that is going to teach me.” I sent you an email expressing my interest and you responded right away. You gave me a call and we talked about what I was getting into with your program. After talking with you it felt right and I made the decision to purchase your course. I have to say, buying your course was a great decision, and I do not regret it. 

Your method and instruction are very easy, insightful and simple to learn! I couldn’t believe it, and I have not seen any videos or anyone else trade the way you teach us. Many of the questions I had are talked about in the training videos.

Also, being able to send you an e-mail makes it easier if I have further questions. You have changed my thinking on how I see the market move. I’ve been practicing for awhile and feel comfortable with my results. I’m confident this will change my financial outlook for the better!

I like how your nieces are involved in your course by showing them how to trade correctly. They ask great questions and they seem very relaxed with your instruction. I highly recommend your course for anyone who is looking for a concise way to trade.

Thank you

My Review of of Mike's course

"I bought Mike’s online course about a month ago. From the beginning I realized that the concepts Mike is sharing are very simple and easy to understand. His teaching methods and insights make sense. If you pay attention and put time into it you will start to learn and look at trading in a way you never did before, that you can do it but you have to give up your old way of thinking and immerse yourself in the way he teaches you and start thinking that way.

We all want to have financial freedom. Most of us hold some kind of a job. Given we have a limited time to do other things, to me this is the best way to create some extra cash. So far, the course has been worth my time and investment. I believe that if keep your mind open, practice enough, it can help shift your thinking to become a better trader."

Course Review of "The Trading Template"

This is a course review of "The Trading Template ", by Mike Aston. This course has been a definite game changer for me. It is clear, concise and straight to the point. Mike walks you through his 20 plus years of experience as a successful trader and boils it down to just a few simple steps. He takes his successful habits and turns them into his Trading Template. He demonstrates his methods and then shows you how to apply them in real world scenarios. Mike is always willing to answer questions and help you understand his process. If you are serious about learning to trade, this course is a great place to start. Mike told me even if I didn't sign up for his course, find someone to teach you how to if that doesn't say integrity nothing does.

Day trading made simple

This is my review of

During this COVID-19 quarantine, I had a lot of time to think about my future and where I want to be. I am grateful that my job was not impacted during the 2020 recession due to the coronavirus pandemic because I wouldn't be able to day trade without a secure income.

I wanted to learn how to day trade correctly so I decided to search for online resources that can help me get started. I did not know where to go, so I saw different videos online as well read articles on the topic.

During my search I stumbled on, I read reviews and all of them were positive and I actually spoke to Mike himself on the phone and he gave me an introduction to his program. I spent about 30 minutes talking to him and I was convinced that was for me.

I started to watch mike's videos and the material he presents makes sense. It is not hard at all. I have lost money but I also made money as well. I didn't finish the program yet . I am about 72% done with it.

In Mike's program, he says you can make up 1000.00 a day once you learn his method. I just started trading this summer and within 40 minutes I made 1000 on one trade. Even though I am still learning, his methods work. In order for you to make gains on profits , you have to be willing to lose. I lost some and I also won some too but I made a major win with one single trade. I plan to duplicate that consistently once I get better at trading.

The key thing is to not give up if you lose money, it's all part of the game. If you are not willing to lose, then this may not be for you. If you are patient, and willing to make certain sacrifices, then you will become a successful day trader.

Like I said, I am still learning and gave me the foundation I needed so I can become successful at this new endeavor.

I hope this helps in making your decision in signing up with mike's program

Clear and easy to follow template

When I saw Mike's ad on YouTube I thought I'd take a look as Mike came across as a sincere, honest family man who really wanted to help others make trading seem simple and easy. I liked the fact that he had taught his nieces with this simple template and part of the training is watching him explain to them how it works.

I had been trading on Forex and Wall St for 15 years and in that time I had lost a lot of money, partly because I had no guide and thought that I could do it on my own. After having been burned a few times, financially, I thought I would give trading template a go. And i'm so glad I did!

I knew a lot about the common indicators, specifically support and resistance, but the way that he untangled all the indicators and just focused on the LOC is genius! I've had MACD, moving averages, Bolinger bands and Stochastics all over my charts! To clear those away and have a singular, clear view point was heaven!

I understood his concept about giving a little bit of money away in order to win, or I should say, lose or realign correctly! It was a real wake-up call and I have to say a massive thank you for the simplicity and straightforwardness of the concept and deliverance of his presentations.

I hope that this will now allow me to enjoy the rest of my life in the way that I want to, and to give me the freedom to live beyond the confines of my work roster and to be my own boss. Trading is a great pastime and to earn the money that can be achieved is mind-blowing! I am now feeling confident that Mike's approach and template will change my trading success for the better.

Mike Thank you kindly with sharing your vision ,your template ,your experience in investing into the stock market . I am really new to investing and have been investing just one way . Going up . Difficult at times and being cautious all the time . A month ago i search the web to become a better trader and i came across a man thinking the same way i was .There had to be an easier way to make 1000.00 a day and i came across The Trading Template . Listen to the web tutorial a couple of times and it alone changed my way of thinking and trading. The first week just from listening to the tutorial on the web i had made 5700.00 . This also was going only in one direction Up. So i new for sure that this investment into Trading Template is a small price to pay for the return on the investment going forward . So for the next 4 weeks i have listened to the courses 3 times .Each and every time something more jumping out that catches my attention . This template is so simple but very true .

Great, honest Day Trading Course!

I highly recommend the Trading Template program for anyone interested in learning how to Day Trade. It is especially helpful to individuals that are thinking about getting into day trading, especially if you are just starting your journey, it is very helpful. I love Mike's straight forward and authentic approach.  Mike spends a great deal of time discussing the critical components of being a successful day trader which is the mental part of trading and doing it in a safe manner which means protecting your capital. Mike has also been available to me for questions and coaching which I greatly appreciate. Mike, thanks for doing what you do and making your program available to us. Happy Trading!! Joe Hanneman.

Something different than the norm!

I have tried several courses (free and paid) over the past 10 years relating to stocks and really did not learn much more than I already knew. The problem was that with everything I had learned over the years I still felt like I was on an edge. But I promised myself to never quit because If someone else can make money on the market then so can I! The only difference was knowledge.

With that said, after watching Mike’s intro videos, looking through his site, wading through the things you see on the internet, and a lengthy phone call with him, it seemed like maybe he had something different. My curiosity peaked and I purchased the course. After purchasing I plowed through the courses because I was in such high hopes it really was different.

Different was right. He said some things that I had never heard before. The first one was that he was going to teach me “how to lose correctly.” I had never heard that before and it resonated because I had lost many times over the years and selling something for a loss is the most stressful part of trading. My second favorite is “if the kingmaker changes direction, change direction.” I loved this part of his teaching as this was where I had lost a lot of money and it shed a lot of light on what I was doing.

Honestly, I did hesitate in the beginning like most people probably would because it is tough to give up hard-earned money. In the end I am glad I spoke to Mike and purchased the course because the price was worth the additional knowledge I gained because it indeed was the “different” I was looking for.

I truly believe that Mike is a person that wants to help people succeed in stock trading and in life. To me this also comes out in his training. Mike I truly appreciate you for that! I look forward to keeping you updated on my future trading.

Excellent training

Excellent training. Has a way of getting the information across in a way thats easy to understand.

I am looking for any one in Australia that would like to form a group to further chat and discuss this great course.

Mike Aston is a Great Teacher!!!

Years ago I became interested in the stock market, but like many, I had no idea what it included.

I had a 401K at work and just hoped for the best. There was communication with the

financial advisor maybe twice a year.

One night I was watching a YouTube video and during a break, Mike Aston’s commercial came on for his

Trading Template. His approach to trading caught me by surprise because he had a humble attitude and kept the techniques


He made it easy to understand. I didn’t expect that because the impression I’ve had from other trainers

was that trading is complicated. They were telling me to learn a huge amount of content to be successful.

Of course they displayed their earnings. But it didn’t seam plausible until Mike made his pitch.

Mike’s promotion also included something very unusual, the training of his two nieces. What?

That may not come across like a professional, but I was taken by his excellent teaching approach to

young people. I thought, if these young ladies could learn to trade, so could I.

I visited Mike’s website and contacted him. He surprised me again with a follow up to my email

with an offer to call me. We spoke during my lunch time. I mentioned that I was taken by

with his approach and wanted to know of his background.

We discussed the basics of trading, my little experience, and his 20 years.

He treated me very kindly, but with a firmness and confidence that I enjoyed hearing.

When Mike heard that I had been reading about trading, he said to forget it all!

What? He went on to describe the journey he went through and how he found a completely

simple approach that would reframe any trader’s mindset.

I was seriously interested as a result.

A number of months went by as I planned to buy his course when I had the finances.

For me, that was a big deal because I don’t have much savings.

I bought the bundle course that had extended teaching. It was important to me to receive

excellent training so I could be confident with trading my money.

The content is 95% video with 5% written. I was able to learn well with this ratio of training.

The videos are not only informing but funny at times too. i don’t think you could find that in other

trainings. That’s important to me because learning a fun way enables the student to learn

easily and more effectively. I know this because I am a teacher and visual arts performer.

I took lots of notes so I could ingrain his ideas. Mike recommends watching the videos several times.

At first I didn’t think that was really necessary, but after completing the material, getting hands on

with Paper Trading, I went back to the vids. I was amazed at how much more I was learning.

I have sent Mike text messages and emails with many questions as I have watched the videos

and practiced simulated trading. He has answered everyone personally! When he didn’t have the

answer, he had one of his nieces get back to me. Tori, his niece, was extremely helpful and very prompt. Mike’s customer service is way beyond the expectations I had. I wanted to learn and grow confident and that meant I had to have questions answered. Mike’s one on one support is top notch… all A’s!

Overall, the simplicity of Mike’s training is matched with hammered in principles that he knows each student MUST learn and practice. His fervor for student’s success is felt through each communication (email/texts/phone). I am sold on the Trading Template course and

on Mike as a person with excellence and integrity.

I am Paper Trading about $400 a day now and I’ve just started. My goal is to make $1K a day and more. Mike’s principles definitely make that

possible because he believes in no limitations. Of course, the one essential principle Mike

BUSTS into your mindset is TO LOSE CORRECTLY. Meaning, as everyone will lose some money, overall they will learn to protect their capital and not suffer a great defeat. Mike shows his concern for this as a high priority.

Contact Mike Aston today to learn more.

A Sound Investment

I have had an interest in the financial markets, and had a desire to learn how to trade in the markets, for many years. I took a couple of courses in trading, many years ago. Because of the complexities (technical indicators, fundamental analysis, etc.) I never had the confidence to trade on my own.

I recently stumbled upon a brief video on YouTube introducing the Trading Template. There was something different about Mike, as he explained his journey as a digital trader. Considering the purchase of any new product or service online always leaves you with some level of concern as to whether you're going to be getting what was advertised.

After enrolling in the Trading Template course, any reservations I had faded away during the first lesson. Mike is authentic and sincere in his desire to teach what he has learned over the past 20 years... because he is teaching members of his family, as well as his students. The material is clear and easy to follow. No buyer's remorse! 

Mike demonstrates his knowledge of the markets, and is effective in teaching the material in a clear, simple, and straight forward fashion. He patiently and frequently reviews important information and concepts so that both the beginner, and experienced trader, can shift their thinking, practice correctly, and have the confidence to effectively enter and exit trades with the least amount of risk.

Nobody, including Mike and the Trading Template, can guarantee our success at trading in the markets. However, it is rare in any walk of life to meet people who are knowledgeable in their particular discipline - and at the same time are willing to share what they know, are humble, honorable, have integrity, and actually reply to an email. As he did with myself and others, Mike and his staff will reply to you promptly when you use the Trading Template contact page. Mike will also arrange to talk by phone if needed.

Though I'm still learning, I now have the confidence to engage the financial markets. If you have had a desire to learn about the markets as a beginner, improve your skills as an experienced trader, and/or want to create another stream of income, or possibly replace the one you have - look no further. Its for these reasons I highly recommend the Trading Template. You won't be disappointed.

Mike's course is well worth it!

I’m a 57 yr old professional who owns a small business here in Florida and I’ve always had a desire to dive deeper into trading equities. I used to trade on the side back in the early 90’s which was of course a different experience back then.

Running a small business took me away from trading but I also experienced a few bad trading decisions that lost me a good amount of money and more importantly the confidence to jump back in.

All I can say is wow!

Your concepts are clear, they are simple and most importantly they are proving to be right. On top of that, I can use them in trading options, futures or whatever.

My professional business is in the field of editing television commercials and I have to admit when I first started watching the training course, I thought… “what did I get here”. But you were upfront that the videos were not full of high production value graphics and multiple cameras and that you were training your nieces who were novices with a distinct purpose in mind. You were right!

Using them to give your insights broke down many pre-conceived ideas that I had and helped me shift my thinking. The concepts are simple but really game changing and worth it.

Finally, and this one is hard to put my finger on but your style of teaching is peaceful and honestly I have tried to carry that over into my trading and it works. When we are amp’d up... we make bad decisions. If we calmly follow the principles we don’t get too far off the path! The narrow path! And that’s exactly where we want to be.

Thank you for this trading template

It’s been well worth it

-Mike W Apr 11, 2020 is Superb ! gives a superb introduction into Online Trading for those who are new in this arena. After taking this course, one would be reasonably confident to enter into the Trading world, irrespective of the Market - whether it be stocks, Forex, commodities, crypto, or any other.

As far me, I can swear, had I first come across ANY other course than's, I would have been totally disinterested in Trading itself. So, I can say, is a life-changer for me.

Even though the strategy Mike Aston teaches is super simple, I tried to make Trading too complicated because of my inherent Complexity Bias, until I re-realized that 'life is simple but we insist on making it complicated'. And that's what makes the course more attractive than any other course, in my opinion.

If you are super-new to the Online Trading world and would like to enter into it, just go for this Course, as majority reviewers here have said; you will not regret it. But don't be deluded that you can be making millions of dollars after one month of joining, but again, don't be surprised if you are on that way sooner due to ! (Personally I needed about 6-8 months practice before I became fully confident.)

Although the method taught in the course is simple, and the charting platform recommended in the course is super-excellent ( I would have never known about its existence but for this course ), it still misses an important aspect of Trading in my opinion but I think it is on the part of the student to figure out the missing part, because it certainly is Market-specific. That is, if you have chosen a different Market than mine, that limitation might not apply to you. Apart from this, Mike Aston is quite readily available for clarifying any doubts you may have. He promptly replied to my queries.

Overall, 9.5 out of 10 points.

I would like to mention it was by…

I would like to mention it was by accident that i came across Mikes invitation to trade anywhere in the world in the comfort of your home.

I was paying my bills at the time. We took up the offer to purchase the course late 2019. The truth of the matter I asked myself -what if this could change my financial position?

So I replayed the Youtube of Mikes presentation to my wife and we agreed to give it ago.

Mike has the ability to present the course in a easy to understand manner, that his experience of 20 years plus has consolidated.

The concepts he reveals in his template (process) which I believe are gold.

Naturally, like everything, there is a learning curve to set up with a broker and charting software etc. but thats expected in any venture.

I am just going into the third month March 2020 with live trading with only 1 contract, and have grown the account from $5200 us dollars to just a little over $12000 dollars. For me this is incredible.

His method in his template which I have followed works. I always say the truth is in the results . I live in Australia so $12000 dollars is almost equivalent to almost $20000 Australian dollars which to us living on the other-side of the pacific is a blessing.

I really can see that this template when practiced will reap the benefits time and time again.

I am looking forward to the next 3 months. So Mike, thank you for sharing your knowledge with others .

Regards, David McCarthy.

Imploring consumers to purchase this training if they are financially able--

Unfortunately for all of us, life circumstances have drastically changed for everyone worldwide. As for me--my law business is at a complete standstill now and for the foreseeable future. Because of this I'm getting ready to trade live with a very small account and perhaps even use micro emini's to control my risk and increase confidence live trading. Using Mike's teachings, I have been practicing futures on simulator almost a year now-- so I believe I am as ready as I'll ever be lol. I certainly know that no matter what happens -- I am VERY grateful that I purchased and practiced Mike's training. Now, more than ever, we need to find alternative and safer sources of income. Among the important principles Mike espouses in his training (a handful of very essential psychological and technical principles), I know I need to trade from a place of peacefulness and confidence --and not fear. I cannot express the utmost necessity that now more than ever, head of household income providers need to consider learning how to trade as a viable source of income. I HIGHLY recommend Mike's method as there are an infinite # of other programs out there which almost guarantee certain failure in trading. I am a real student; my name is Harvey Greenberg with ZERO vested interest in this guy's business. Hope you and yours stay healthy, wealthy and safe.

To anyone on the fence about this, I would say to go for it!

To anyone on the fence about this course, I would say to go for it.

I decided I wanted to learn about trading over a year ago. I didn't have a background in finance, so I researched with books and YouTube videos. Throughout my research, I found some good information and learned some of the functions of the markets; but mostly found a lot of gurus with promises and products to buy. I’ve had to learn many potentially dangerous skills throughout my life in construction and when earning my pilot license and various ratings. Learning these skills showed me that a good instructor could teach me the best practices and how to stay out of trouble.

Knowing that 80% of people who start trading lose all their money, the need for training was obvious to me. I found Mike’s videos on YouTube, and he instantly stood out to me as what I was looking for. After talking with Mike on the phone, I signed up for his course. I found his lessons easy to understand and his methods easy to apply. I am now practicing live trades on a simulator, which does take practice; but as I improve on the simulator, I know that I am on the right track and that I am preparing for the day that I will be using real money. I can only say that I found Mike to be honest and helpful. His course is worth the price, and is a great place to learn exactly what you are getting yourself into when you get started in trading. Thanks, Mike, for everything!

Is God using Mike to help people?

It was nearly 2 years ago that I purchased Mike's program (3/20/18). I went thru the whole program and wondered if it would help me in crypto currencies. When I asked Mike this question, he confirmed that although he developed his program as a stock market trading system it could equally be used when trading cryptos...he was correct. Really anything with a chart the template can be applied to in predicting future movements.

The reason I was focusing on the crypto market was because it didn't have the ridiculous $25,000 trading account (PDT) requirements of the NYSE...but my long term goal was to one day save enough to trade stocks again.

Fast forward 22 months, after being out of trading for a little over a year because of a major back surgery, I was praying that God would provide me a way to reach or get around the $25,000 limit for trading...the next morning the Holy Spirit reminded me of Mike's course. I wasn't sure why, since the NYSE still had the same account requirements. So I decided to checked out some of Mike's newer Youtube videos, to see what he was up to. During one of his videos I found him discussing Futures accounts and the fact that they didn't require the $25,000 account balances. Thank you, Lord! That was the open door I was looking for.

I started restudying Mike's program and reached out to him for initial support. It is if I had purchased his program that day...Without missing a beat he jumped into providing his perspective on how I might find success. Mike is an honest, stand up guy. And a great teacher.

I have traded (off and on) for over 2 decades, I've made some money and lost wasn't until I did a deep dive into Mike's theories on trading that the lights really started coming on. I committed 30 days to paper trading....scalping, shaving, swing and 5 day trading....his templates work in every time frame.

I have found that the scalping ($30 to $50) per trade, with an average of 75 to 100 trades per day works (but it is exhausting). It makes my brain hurt after a week of nonstop trading. But it could be profitable, if that's your thing.

I personally enjoy working the 7pm - 10pm plus London market open (3am EST) until noon (NYSE) and then 2:30pm to makes for a very long day...but when you're successful (even at 56 yrs old) the lack of sleep doesn't bother me much. I just wish I had found futures years ago.

I started with a $10,000 account on NinjaTrader (discount brokerage with lower margin requirements), but I also use my Think or Swim platform at the same time. Mike's system is all over my charts and gives me the entry points I'm looking for.

I do believe God is using Mike to help people! I know one thing, it's changing my financial life. And paying Mike $1000 for his expertise was a drop in the bucket compared to what it will return.

Mike is a perfect example of the scripture (Jesus' own words-red letter) "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them."

I bought a tree from Mike and he helped me plant it, taught me how to feed it, how to take care of it. Now it's up to me to give it what it needs, and harvest the fruit.

Thank you Mike!

A Note for the Experienced Traders...

I was a ‘professional’ full time daytrader from 1993-1999. Life took me in a different career path from there, but I always knew someday I would get back into trading for a living once I was able to semi-retire. Fast forward to 2019 and that time to trade finally arose again. God led me to a man named Mike Aston who was in a network associated with my wife. I was/am an owner of a successful real estate investment company. Mike an I had similar interests, so we connected a few times for lunch. Once I found out Mike had been successfully trading for the last 20 years, and just put together a program explaining his methods while teaching his nieces to trade…I knew I had to buy it. God led me to him for a reason. It didn’t take a prophet to see that right when I’m in a position to start trading again, I’m introduced to a man who has had continued success and is willing to share his system!

Mike has a special gift at not just simplifying a complicated technique like trading, but more importantly has a gift of clearly communicating the importance of your thinking, and how to change your mind. It’s like getting a trading coach, and a head coach all in one!

It will be challenging at first for most experienced traders (including myself), who have bought into every analytical system, technical trading methods, news propaganda, etc. to let go of these ‘indicators’ and simply believe in this one simple method. But there is no debating it, once you see it work over and over and over again. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying Mike’s (or any) system will work 100% of the time. That does not exist. But it’s a game of probabilities, and Mike’s system will put you on the winning side of the equation.

In my opinion, this program is a MUST have for anyone who truly has the desire to be a consistently winning trader (and not an analytical geek 😉)! – Scott Dale

-Scott Dale Feb 4, 2020

You Can Trust Mike

The first thing you need to know is that Mike Aston is a straight up guy. When I have wanted to talk with him both before and after purchasing the course, he got back to me immediately, answered all my questions, and has been generous with his time. Mike is a man of Christian faith, and it’s obvious when you talk with him that integrity is high on his list.

In some ways, Mike’s course may be the opposite of what you expect, and that turns out to be a good thing. If you’ve looked at the kind of training most people are selling, it’s built on the premise that you need to learn a thousand technical things to trade well. The genius of Mike’s approach is that he admits up front that what any stock does is completely beyond your control, and he teaches you how to give up that illusion of control, instead showing you how to change your mindset so that you can respond to what the stock actually does.

Mike will show you how to avoid losing all your money through having the wrong mindset, what to look for in good stocks to trade, and his system for determining when to get into a trade and when to get out. You’ll have to learn, and you’ll have to practice, but Mike will give you the tools. I’m still in the learning and practicing phase, but I can’t believe what I’ve learned so far. As a beginner, I’ve made some good trades on the simulator platform, and I’m seeing the truth Mike teaches in my mistakes. I’m optimistic that I can grow into some of the success Mike’s been living for a long time.

-Francis Leeman Jan 22, 2020

It is a great course

Mike’s Course is Worth Way More than it Cost! High Recommend!

I previously left a review on Mike’s course (Trading Template) a few months after I went through it. I have been simulating trades for over a year now, and wanted to leave an updated review.

After simulating the market with Mike’s concepts and techniques for many months, I constantly have people ask me. “When are you going to put real money in it?”

When I first bought Mike’s course— for what I believe is a BEST Deal for a course of it’s caliber—my first intention was to go through it and start trading full time a month later. After taking Mike’s course and grasping his teachings, I realized my thinking was all wrong—not saying that trading a month later isn’t very possible, because with Mike’s method, it’s so simple, that it could very well be possible—it just wasn’t something I weighed to be wise for me personally. So after a year, I am still practicing the concepts and little by little becoming more than a “nervous-wreck trader” who can make good trades, but instead I’m becoming a very comfortable trader (also making many good trades). Which means I can see me being my own boss in the near future without all the stress that comes with it. That alone is worth buying his course!

The course is extremely informative, and is the “FULL puzzle”—it’s not one of those courses you buy that has pieces of information where you have to buy another course to find out the answers.

Mike is an honest, and godly man, who puts God first in his work—you can definitely gleam that from his course and talking with him. People who think Mike’s course is too much just don’t see the value in it. I believe it is underpriced. Mikes course is worth Way more than it cost! It is very possible if you put the effort to understand what Mike teaches, that you could work comfortably from ANYWHERE! (As long as you have internet, ofcourse). I highly recommend his course! And appreciate all the time he has put in to helping me become a comfortable trader for when I put real money on the line—whether or not that is this year or 3 years from now. Whenever that is, I can guarantee you that this review won’t change! God Bless!

A Blessing and a Godsend...

"Hello Mike,

Thank you so much for your patience, knowledge, and teaching skills as outlined in your Trading Template course. You have accomplished the monumental task of teaching the once thought of as elusive and psychologically exhausting art of Day Trading to any who will listen with a simple yet powerfully effective course that in my opinion, ANYONE can master if they follow the program as instructed.

I am new to trading (2 months) and was doing some trading online but with very little success as I would buy a stock and then sell it as soon as it would make a downturn as I was afraid to lose the entire value of the stock. Or I would hang on to the stock only to see it whither down to less than the price I bought it for.

So how refreshing it is to say that after finishing your course, I am at a profit now and not fretting over every up or downturn of a particular stock since I now know how to correctly forecast when to engage (buy) and disengage (sell) a stock at the optimum point in time for the best return on my investment.

Thanks again Mike, YOU are a Blessing and a Godsend!"

Mike Pulled me out of the mess I was in

"Working with Mike has been great and he has really changed my whole thinking about trading. I used to be a Forex trader and could never get past the anxiety during a trade and would end up basically with paralysis of analysis!! I was trying to use so many indicators at once, it just made me freeze up and panic which I now know is just a crazy way to trade. Mike has broken it down so simply in his teachings and if you go through his video lessons and learn to master his simple insights, you will see that it really an Awesome way to trade!!! Thanks, Mike for helping me find my way out of the mess I was in. Forever grateful from Greenville, Michigan"

Goodbye complexity, hello simplicity....

"Mike's question about earning $1000.00 a day from anywhere in the world really got my attention because that is exactly what I was looking for when I saw his Trading Template video for the first time advertised on YouTube...

Prior to coming across Trading Template and even after, I have seen over and over again that there is A LOT of very confusing information out there about trading that seems very complicated to me and I would have to guess for most people first starting out. There was something about Mike that I really liked so I decided to enroll in his course.

After signing up for Trading Template and watching the videos it was very easy for me to understand Mike's approach to trading and it really simplified the thought process for me.

I am still practicing with it to make sure I am going to be very successful with it, and after watching all his videos in the course I KNOW and BELIEVE that this is something I can do and be really good at using his method. Trading Template is very easy to understand and I believe that this course will greatly simplify trading for you.

Like Mike says, being profitable in trading is not a guarantee, we are dealing with probabilities, but the education you will get from him will definitely increase your probabilities of being the trader that you desire to be. Sign up for his course and you will quickly realize that Trading Template is the only way to go when it comes to trading."

"I am a builder by trade, but due to a couple of injuries and just wear and tear over the years I was getting to a stage where I could no longer carry out the physical work, and I was looking at ways to still generate an income. I found Mikes Trading template, it really has changed my life. I was quite skeptical when I enrolled in the course, but I must say after a few weeks found him to be a very genuine and honest guy. I started trading a demo acct and one morning I sent Mike a text as I was having some problems getting my head around certain things. I live in Australia in Brisbane and there is a big-time difference we are about 15 hours ahead I sent Mike a text thinking I would hear back sometime the next day, shortly after, my phone started ringing, it was Mike we talked about the things I was having difficulty with and he gave me some one on one tuition, and he is always there when you have a question. Mike has given me the ability to make a good income from trading shares. And I want to stress I had Never traded shares before, I had no idea what a candlestick graph was. And the only reason I can now do this is thanks to Mikes Trading Platform"

"So impressed with Trading Template and Mike Aston. As a single mother of three, I was looking for training or guidance for how to make money in the stock market, as a supplement to my income. I have been so impressed with Trading Template. The Stock Market is unpredictable, but Mike's methods are simple and easy to learn, as long as you can embrace the fact that losing some money along the way is inevitable. Following Mike's method will allow you to control the extent of your losses, and maximize the extent of your gains. I'm so grateful to have found this training! Thank you to Mike for his humility, his clarity of instruction and his willingness to teach others - even reaching out personally to help newbies like me. :-)"

"Purchased Mike’s course early last year and am so happy with my decision. I’ve tried some other courses and softwares but nothing comes close to his; very simple and easy to learn, and most importantly ADAPTIVE. Mike has given me a way to financial freedom at only 22-years old. I’m so grateful for him!"

"Excellent course! We purchased Mike'sTrading Template course about 5-1/2 months ago. We had come across an ad by Mike and we went to his website to view his introductory videos. My husband is retired, I work as a medical transcriptionist and we had been praying for a way to make some income from home without too much cost or investment. We decided to try the course as we had considered trading in the past but had no idea where to start. After taking the course, I cannot imagine attempting to trade without it. Mike's course is not a get-rich-quick scheme but rather a great tool that makes trading very simple. It focuses on learning how to trade correctly. There are tons of books and info out there on trading, but we have found that purely sticking with Mike's instruction makes this fun and potentially profitable. We particularly appreciate the videos where Mike is working with students. Super helpful. We have watched him help students who have previously failed at trading, and literally watched their eyes be opened to the benefits of sticking with Mike's simple method. In fact, this course is perfect for people like us who are without any previous experience when it comes to trading because we don't have to "unlearn" bad or complicated trading skills. 

Mike is very helpful, answering our emails and even calling us and walking us through any questions we may have. We have found him to be an honest man who sincerely cares about people. For anyone who wants to learn something that can truly be a great way to add to their income, we would highly recommend this course."

"Mike, Thank you for offering a course that is not only affordable but also one that is easy to understand. The way that you keep it simple and stress-free is what made it work for me. When I purchased your course I had already decided that I would probably be wasting my money. I’m happy to say that I could not have been more wrong. I SEE FREEDOM FROM 9:00 TO 5:00 IN MY FUTURE!!! I will be staying in touch and look forward to talking to you soon."

"I would highly recommend Mike’s course. What initially drew me to it, was that it was not “glitzy” and not exaggerated in its claims. The promotion was that there was a potential for daily income if Mike’s advice was followed. Another thing that appealed to me, was there was no up-selling, although there were other services available. There was no mention in the class of a need to pay more to be successful. The course was initiated by Mike’s desire to “give back” and help others. Mike has made the bulk of his wealth with trading and still does. His nieces were a catalyst in the course’s development. They are part of several of the videos, which to me, provides additional authenticity. Unlike other similar courses, Mike does not have a staff. However, Mike was available to answer any questions I had directly; by text, email or phone. When I first showed interest, we had a phone meeting. The course provides a simple way to approach the markets. It is a refreshing change from constantly reading books and trying to understand all the nuances of technical indicators. It provided for me, more peace with my trading. I look forward to additional daily income, following several weeks, or months, of paper trading. Good luck!"

"Great course! I took Mike's course and I continue to learn from his video examples of real trades. Mike is a no BS trader and mentor and he keeps it simple. All one has to do is practice "when to engage and when to get out" and you will be receiving more than you lose. Hey traders, don't fool yourself, because you will lose. But learn how to LOSE CORRECTLY. Take Mike's course, watch it 10 times and let everything sink in, and practice with a simulated account. You will be successful! Don't pay thousands to these charlatans out there with 6 indicators who promise you'll be rich in no time. Believe me I know. Trading is a process, and Mike's method of trading keeps it simple and real for the average guy. There is no one out there like him. He's willing to share what he knows and is invested in your success. Good Luck and God bless!"

"A simple methodology that's worth learning and applying I want to sincerely thank Mike for creating this course. It has probably been the most revolutionary trading course I have done. I signed up some months back and watched all the videos. Once I began to understand Mike's methodology, I began practicing on charts to start with. I moved on to a demo account and started trading using the methodology on CFDs. I was amazed at the results especially when I practiced with discipline. In a short while, probably a 1 - 2 months, I was able to grow that account significantly!!!! I thought I had fully grasped the concept, so I started a forex trading account, initially, I grew that account by 100% but I noticed that there was still some psychology to work out when it came to real money. I looked at where I went wrong and it was back to not trusting the methodology. So back I went to a new demo account and started again. Eventually, I corrected my understanding. I then started a new CFD trading account with another broker and though my capital was small, I am glad to say by the grace of God this too has grown by more than I had expected. To me it is not the money that really matters, it is the methodology and applying it correctly. It is about being in harmony with the movement masters. Thank you, Mike, for taking the time to share. By the way, this is not a get rich quick scheme, you will make mistakes along the way and if you apply the methodology consistently over the long term with discipline you will likely remain profitable, grow your account and be in the 20% of traders. For me, the course was worth it."

"Finally a light at the end of the tunnel. I purchased Mike's course a month ago. I have gone through the course twice. It is very basic which I like. No indicators. A nice clean chart. I finally feel after many years that I have finally found a method and mentor that works and I can trust. If you are on the fence do what I did and shoot him an email and set up a phone session with him. You won't be disappointed"

"Very happy with the course so far. I am a verified purchaser of this course. My name is Harvey Greenberg. I have had the course for a short time and if I fail or succeed it will be on me. Mike has been immediately accessible via phone and he has conducted himself with the utmost of integrity. $1234 is a significant amount to spend on anything but it will be a bargain if I follow through and am successfully trading as a result of the method set forth in his course. Thus far I am very satisifed. 5 stars"

"I have been studying, evaluating and listening to Mike's trading template for over four months now, and his ways of teaching has given me a new leap of life in the financial world of trading. I'm usually led by my inner man whenever I try to get involved in anything, so after discussing with Mike on the first day on the phone, I felt a velvety-good feeling about this course. That gut-feeling was right because his mind set plus his practical analogy made me visualize the key concepts of trading in the real world. Mike’s gentle and shrewd way of teaching is absolutely outstanding. He has not only taught me the dynamics of the right way of trading, but also explains the need to be patience. Just like a father to his children, he explains things with ease. Furthermore, he made me see a direct parallel between the God-factor and the business world. His course is mind-renewal. Since I enrolled into this course , I haven’t even started real-life trading yet, but instead, I’m taking my time understanding and hearing and practicing those concepts over and over again till it’s embedded in me. I believe anyone can succeed in his course, but you must be willing to take your mind off what you think you know. My consistency in hearing Mike’s course repeatedly has made me understand the dynamics of Trading more and more. Mike is simple, concise and his finesse way of teaching makes it easy to grasp. The key to his teaching is listening and just taking your time before rushing into the real world. I like to see things in threes- Knowledge[information], Understanding[understanding the depth and principles of that information] and Wisdom[the application of that knowledge and principles into work]. Proverbs says “Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.” This is a divine principle which Mike applies. Overall, I’m happy I made a decision to enroll in this course. Thank you Mike."

"I bought your course in October of last year and to be frank, it was the tipping point for my trading career. Although I am not trading his specific strategy, he taught a very specific and valuable concept which was a game changer for me. Slowly but surely (with the Lord’s help) I’ve built a consistently profitable strategy based on that concept, and now I’m making enough income every day for me and my wife to both quit our jobs and and start enjoying life like never before. So thank you Lord and thank you Mike! Life will never be the same!"

"Mike, You’re Trading Template Digital Training is awesome! The thing I like about it is that it is simple and very understandable. It’s like I have a front-row seat, along with your other guests-to learn a system that can give me access to a very bright and prosperous financial future. You see, I am retired and it is a perfect "fit" for being able to make money in retirement when I choose to trade. I have watched the training numbers of time. I get something new every time. I’ve studied many trading strategies, but yours is the simplest one I’ve found. In a trading system, I wanted a high probability winning strategy with low risk, that I can apply myself to learn, then practice in real time, and then when comfortable put money on the line to trade and have high probability of making good profits. Your system does all of this. I understand clearly your straightforward, no gimmick teaching method. Thank you for making this available."

"If you're considering buying Mike's training, I want to encourage you to take a leap of faith. I almost didn't join for 2 reasons...

1) I'm very skeptical. I've been burned by Trading Gurus that want to keep selling you more... Coaching, Indicators, videos, strategies, etc.

2) I have a small trading account, so the fee was a big chunk of what I had to trade with.

So I checked Mike out the best I could. Being able to find him and his nieces on Facebook added a level of authenticity for me.

I'm glad that I signed up. It's the best money that I've spent on my trading education.

I didn't have to buy anything extra and the strategy really works. I emailed a question to Mike before joining and he replied promptly. After signing up, we texted back and forth and talked on the phone. He's very knowledgeable and friendly. He made sure that I understood what was covered in his videos.

I can't express how relieved I am, now that I know this strategy. There is no guesswork. It's straightforward and easy to follow. Before, when I'd trade, I'd hold a losing trade too long. I was uncertain about where to enter and exit a trade. Now I know exactly when and where.

I blew out 2 trading accounts in the past, so I've been timid about getting back in. I promised myself that I'd give up if I lost all my money again. I used what I just learned from Mike to get back into trading today. I made $270....With my small,$1,600 account. I proved it to myself that this works.

Thank you Mike, for allowing us to share in the wisdom that God has blessed you with.

With a grateful heart,"
