decided to create a specific review webpage about Dr.
Dean Handley and the same of others in
the review industry because each reviewer has their
strengths and weaknesses in comparison to each other. The main review webpage is @
(contains many redacted screenshots of
Therefore, I want the
main review webpage
to be more about TheStrategyLab as a landing webpage for traders wanting to
learn about our specific resources within our
fee-base resources because
the reviewers themself did a very poor job in reviewing resources of

With that said, this is a review about Dr. Dean Handley
when he interacted with TheStrategyLab free
chat room and then comparing it to signal calling trade alert rooms (he
prefers to phrase Live Trade Rooms) is problematic
because my free chat room is
a signal calling trade alert room, its
been advertised as a trade alert room.
Simply, the fact that Dr. Dean Handley is comparing TheStrategyLab free
chat room with signal calling trade alert rooms. It then gives the
to naive / wannabe traders that my chat room can be used as a free
alternative to fee-base signal calling trade alert rooms especially when
Dr. Dean Handley does
mention one critical fact.

Yet, Dr. Dean Handley did the
of TheStrategyLab via the fact he actually mentions the words
along with discussing some statistical analysis of my trade performance
in his positive review posted in a
Yet, there were a few misinformation info in the review.
For example, he states profit targets are
stated at trade initiation when in fact the goal of the trade
is always a WRB pt1 at the minimum and I only remain in the trade beyond
a WRB pt1 if there's increasing volatility...all of this is explained in
the daily routine statement within my daily trade performance record and
often repeated in the chat room. Also, he fails to mention my specific
education resources for WRB Analysis.
MarketClips review article to the right >>>
Once again, I'm
bashing Dr. Dean Handley when he interacted with TheStrategyLab but I
will question a few issues involving Dr. Dean Handley that I discover on
his positive review of TheStrategyLab that has me questioning if Dr.
Dean Handley was working with Emmett Moore Jr. back in
to Emmett Moore Jr. development of the Tradingschools blog.
It's interesting because Emmett Moore Jr. of Tradingschools also fails
to mention the names of my education resources nor does he mention the
critical fact that I
traders when I discover they've been trying to use my chat room as a
free alternative to fee-base signal calling trade alert rooms that
Emmett Moore Jr. recommends / partners with for a financial compensation
while bashing their competition.
Thus, then gives the impression that Dr. Dean Handley either shared his
review notes with Emmett Moore Jr. of Tradingschools in 2016
or Emmett Moore Jr. used the review
notes from 2012 when they were business partners instead of doing his
own independent research and then he decided to spice up his review with
false narratives of TheStrategyLab in an effort to make Dr. Dean Handley
Something else, Dr. Dean Handley was very confused about why I do not trade the same
position size each trade / every trading day but he does realize that
position size management
is a key part of my trade performance.
In comparison, other reviewers
intentionally reviewed the free chat room as a signal calling trade
alert room while ignoring our other resources and ignoring our posted
redacted statements...these other reviewers were most likely banned
to their review of TheStrategyLab along with the fact they did
identify themself as a reviewer when they used the free chat room.
Hopefully, this review of Dr. Dean Handley interaction with
TheStrategyLab will encourage other reviewers to at least acknowledge
the education resources offered and the privacy of our members
TheStrategyLab going forward if they want me to view them as a reviewer instead of as someone with poor
research skills and hidden
Be aware that my review
of Dr. Dean Handley involves his
with TheStrategyLab that resulted in him mentioning the
free chat room via a
in MarketClips, Futures Truth and Stocks &
Commodities magazines in which later resulted being mentioned as a
Global Trade Titan. Simply, this is
not a review
that attacks his reviews of other vendors / reviewers
nor will you see me mention any other vendor that Dr.
Dean Handley has reviewed.
he does mention he does
seek to authenticate and verify posted P/L records
but he does
specifically mentioned viewing any posted redacted screenshots at
the website / forum d0 in fact correlate with the trades
posted in the free chat room...we did not have any
conversations about redacted screenshots nor about the
live screen share meeting. Yet, my monitoring of his IP
address reveal he did view several redacted statements
at the forum where he was a registered member.
Also, noted, I'm very
impressed by his academic achievements considering I've
studied in college a similar like academic field as he
did. It was the reason why I allowed Dr. Dean Handley
into my free chat room as a guest visitor
whereas anyone else I would have told them to read the
archive timestamp chat logs. Today,
I no longer allow guest visitors and all users
of the free chat room must qualify for access to the
free chat room just like any other member.
This independent webpage should put the
light on reviewers like Dr. Dean Handley just as I did about
Jr. of Tradingschools and
Warren Ouma of Valforex. The latter two reviewers
have criminal backgrounds, criminal associations, poor research skills,
impersonations, trolling, secret agendas involving trying to market their
automated trading systems & custom indicators to their readers via
false narratives about
their trading systems along with not
being able to verify their trade performance.
Therefore, on this webpage you're going to learn
more about Dr. Dean Handley's
positive reviews of
TheStrategyLab and the strange situation about why he no longer mentions
TheStrategyLab in the
Global Trade Titans report.
Don't misunderstand, I'm more concerned with reviewers
doing reviews on the other resources offered
@ TheStrategyLab while less
interested in the
Global Trade Titans report. This is one of the reasons why I show review
ratings from users of WRB Analysis for TheStrategyLab resources to
offset the emphasis the reviewers put on my free chat room. Yet, the
Global Trade Titans report seems to be an issue (controversy) with other reviewers.
Review in Futures Truth (excerpt)
To get started, Dr.
Dean Handley was upfront about his purpose when he contacted
TheStrategyLab...to do a review
although he did not provide any info about how he heard about my free
chat room considering I do not
advertise it outside of the website / social media profiles....possibly
search engine ?
Yet, as you will learn
below...it was concerning that his review concentrated on the free chat room including Dr.
Dean Handley comparing it with "trade alert rooms". In fact, I do
remember having a conversation with Dr. Dean
Handley giving him permission to talk to users of WRB Analysis that posted their
trades in the free chat room via price action analysis of WRB Analysis
regardless if the trader was posting profitable trades or trade losses.
Actually, I was hoping
he would talk about members of the free chat room posting real-time
trades and posting redacted screenshots of trade fills in their broker
trade execution platform or screenshots of redacted broker statements.
Unfortunately, he did not nor did he specifically mention my redacted
Strangely, I discover
he did not
have any conversations with members of the free chat room posting their
real-time trades but I didn't think too much about that because I
assumed he must be just doing statistical analysis
of their trades including my own real-time trades. During his use of the
free chat room, he was very respectable and professional. Also, he was
not a member of the live screen sharing because he did
not post verification
of his understanding of WRB Analysis nor
verification of his trade performance via screenshots of trade fills in
his broker trade execution platform.
I would later learn
that his review of TheStrategyLab was a positive review to be later
mentioned in his
Global Trade Titans report
(Trading Futures Successfully on the
Shoulders of Giants 2013 - #4 issue of
I believe that occurred in 2013 - 2014. Yet, he later removed
TheStrategyLab from his Global Trade Titans report after I
refused to pay to
support one of his seminars...more about this later in my review of Dr.
Review in Stocks & Commodities (excerpt)
Further, he mentions TheStrategyLab
positively (accolade) in Stocks & Commodities magazine (issue December
2013) just prior to us being removed from Dr. Handley's Global
Trade Titans report and removal from his database for
refusing to pay for that seminar he propose to us on Skype.
You can read the S&C excerpt below.
The above articles represent when Dr. Dean
Handley mentions TheStrategyLab positively with other Global Trade Titans
between 2013 - 2014.
However, recently I've discover he actually mentioned TheStrategyLab
positively back in
2012 in a FuturesTruth
magazine article although I do
not know if it was issue
#2 or issue #4 of 2012 that represent the
specific article written by Dean Handley for FuturesTruth magazine in 2012.
TheStrategyLab is mentioned on page 3 (.pdf download)
Yet, if you're like me and do not like to download .pdf files
because you practice safe cyber-security...I've created an image of the
.pdf file article by Dr. Dean Handley FuturesTruth 2012 via his article
First-Rate, First-String, Five-Star Trading Rooms.
This article sheds light on another issue involving Dr. Dean Handley.
He's the type of reviewer that contacts the vendor prior to
discussing the vendor in any article. In fact, he'll announce to you
when he's going to use your chat room or trade room...something the
other reviewers do not do. By the way, there was no contact from Dr.
Dean Handley when he first mentioned TheStrategyLab in 2012 and I didn't
first hear from him until 2013 when he stated he wanted to do a review.
First-Rate, First-String, Five-Star Trading Rooms article to the right >>>
Therefore, I will assume that at least in 2012...he was secretly using
my free chat room without my knowledge and possibly trying to use
the free chat room as a signal calling trade alert room.
Regardless, most of the verification of trade
performance by our members and myself occurs in the
private section that I
often refer to as verification of learning /
understanding WRB Analysis via DOKs and verification of
application of WRB Analysis via screenshots
of timestamp trade fills in broker trade execution platform along with
some members posting screenshots of
quantitative statistical analysis of their trade performance (simulator or
real money) via a professional trade journal software.
In fact, I believe reviewers intentionally
only review chat rooms & trade alert rooms because they're
easy to review.
Just ask for a redacted broker statement and they usually give the vendor a
positive review if the vendor shows redacted broker statements or redacted
screenshots of trade fills in broker trade execution platform. Yet, I've notice some vendors getting a positive review via
stating their trades are simulator only or
hypothetical while others stating the exact same thing are getting negative
reviews. Thus, there's obviously other criteria that a reviewer must be
looking at beyond honesty or transparent.
What's the attraction to chat rooms & trade alert rooms ?
(click on image to review trades
posted in real time by users of WRB Analysis)
Many new traders look
for an easy way to profits while they're learning a trade method and they
believe they can do that via mimic / copy / piggyback / replicate the
trades of someone that they believe is a profitable trader. Simply,
naive / inexperience traders have a strong desire to
learn and profit at the same time.
contrast, TheStrategyLab believes this
is the wrong approach to trading if you want to be an independent trader
with longevity in the business of trading. In fact, I strongly
dislike signal calling trade alert rooms and have been outspoken about
2005 although I do not
single out specific vendors in the signal calling trade alert business.
Yet, if a vendor with a signal calling trade alert room / partner with a
signal calling trade alert room then comes to my free chat room to troll
me or troll me at another forum because
towards signal calling trade alert rooms in general even though I did
identify a specific vendor...I will respond via writing a review about
that vendor after he / she
Emmett Moore Jr. Tradingschools).
By the way, its the reviewer responsibility
not to get chat rooms and trade alert rooms
mixed up because that then
confuses the typical new trader. Just as importantly, its also the vendor's
responsibility to properly label their room as either a chat room
or trade alert room including explaining
I take it one step further to ensure
misunderstanding in my free chat room via kicking, removing
trader trying to use my free chat room as a signal calling trade alert
room. As mentioned, I'm very outspoken against those with a business model of
trade alert rooms or those sending out trade alerts (what to trade, when
to buy and when to sell) to their clients. Vendors with a trade alert
room will usually use marketing phrases like "trade alerts", "subscription",
"free trial", "follow our trades" in their description of a trade alert
room and I've seen monthly fees for the trade alert rooms from $10 - $700
dollars per month.
Once again, eventually I will remove the
rebuttals about these reviewers from the
main review webpage because I will have an independent webpage
dedicated to each of these reviewers that will allow using
TheStrategyLab review webpage only to talk about resources of
TheStrategyLab, verification of understanding WRB Analysis, verification
of trade performance and client review ratings.
With that said, I will now begin my
rebuttal...about Dr. Dean
Handley even though he gave TheStrategyLab a
positive review. Thus,
rebuttal should help ensure that other reviewers will understand that
not offer a signal calling
trade alert service and I have a policy to ban anyone that use my free chat
room as a trade alert room.
Simply, TheStrategyLab must
not be compared with other
signal calling trade alert services. Thus, if you're going to review
TheStrategyLab...review the education resources listed above.
By the way, readers of this review webpage and the other review
thanked me (I get on
average about 5 unique positive comments per month) for
being transparent about my interaction with Dr. Dean Handley (free chat
room, Skype, email), Emmett Moore Jr. (telephone call), Warren Ouma (no
interaction except his spam messages at my forum) and trolls. They
greatly appreciate me putting a light on the review tactics, false narratives & hidden
agendas by these reviewers.
Many have stated they will no longer read
the review blogs of these reviewers and will now use what I've outlined for
diligence of other vendors involving redacted screenshots of
timestamp trade fills in broker trade execution platform with the
understanding that only the timestamps can verify the merits of the
trade method and trading performance of the trader.
Dr. Dean Handley review business mainly concentrates on
four types of
Signal calling trade alert services

Trading Entities (e.g. brokers)
First of all, I was a little confused
about Dr. Dean Handley in my first encounter with him when I researched
him and discover he was an employee of Global Trade Titans via a blog
post linking to a
Linkedin webpage that was a dead
webpage. The webpage later became active in 2015 and implied there's 11
- 50 employees in which Dr. Dean Handley's name is used as one of the
Further, I remember in 2013 - 2014
when Dr. Dean Handley was reviewing TheStrategyLab...he mentioned to me
his association with
Tesseract Trading LLC...it's a website
that talked about Global Trade Titans back in 2013 - 2014. Back then it
contained reviews of signal calling trade alert rooms. You can see in
the image on the left shows TheStrategyLab and Tesseract Trading
The Handley Papers
@ Tesseracttrading.com to show what I saw back in 2014.
no longer talks about Global
Trade Titans nor does reviews. The website is now associated with a
signal calling trade alert service called M3 Futures Trade Room that's
Tesseract Trading LLC is still register to Dr. Dean Handley with a
new identity as a signal calling trade alert room but Dr. Dean Handley
M3 Futures Trade Room nor does he mention the trade alert room anywhere
online unless my research has
not been deep
addition, Dr. Dean Handley
trains traders on the Phalanx Trading System and has been marketing
it since 2016 when I saw an article by Dr. Dean Handley in FuturesTruth
magazine. Obviously there's an association, partnership
or affiliation between Dr. Dean
Handley, Tesseract Trading LLC, Global Trade Titans, Phalanx System, M3
Futures Trade Room, Bob (Robert) Amico and Veritas Futures Trading
that's confusing to me.
Further, I've come across many online messages
by traders questioning the connections between them...obviously other
traders know more
than me. It's scary because Bob (Robert) Amico has a
mortgage fraud conviction in N.Y. along with other family members although I do
not know how
much time he served in prison.
This is very strange because Emmett
Moore Jr. also worked in the mortgage business in California and is a
former business review partner of Dr. Dean Handley.
I think you can now
see why there's so much controversy and questions about the
involving these individuals with Dr. Dean Handley seemly at
ground zero or
epicenter of all the fraud moving away from him like a shock wave.
Yet, credit to Dr. Dean Handley for
openly discussing his interaction with these convicted frauds that went
to prison although he specifically stated that initially he was
not aware about
their criminal past until he discover such on his own such as in
reference to Emmett Moore Jr. in which Dr. Dean Handley ended the
partnership as soon as he discovered a new fraud (Moore Marketing
the Phalanx Trading System and I know nothing about the merits of it.
I'm only mentioning it to connect some dots between these trade alert
rooms, their trading systems, individuals that are head traders
of these trade rooms and marketing / using the trading system.
There are other groups
in the trading industry that Dr. Dean Handley will comment about but he
mainly focuses on
signal calling trade alert rooms
that he prefers to call live trade rooms although there's always
fresh review content of those already
under investigation from a government agency, fined or has a
criminal record prior
to the review and then he'll post updates about someone arrested as if
the review caused the arrest...fair play in my opinion.
By the way, I've noticed many
critical flaws in the
review business beyond the fact that many of the reviewers have ongoing
litigations (e.g. lawsuits) and / or criminal backgrounds. In addition,
there's the obvious flaw that the reviewers are
marketing / advertising their own products
(services) either at their review blog
or via 3rd party
thru another website / blog...it's a conflict of
interest at the least.
flaw is the double standards / hypocrisy when giving
a bad review to one vendor for one thing and then
giving another vendor a good review for the same
standards / hypocrisy continues when they criticize
a vendor for something that they are doing too. For
example, giving someone a bad review for
showing a redacted broker statement when the
reviewer is not
able to show a redacted broker statement (simulator
or real money) when they recommend / partner with a
vendor via stating they were able to
the signal calls by the vendor.
Just as importantly, so
few clients of those being recommended will verify
their own trade performance via screenshots of timestamp trade fills in
their broker trade execution platform involving the service they're
using along with a screenshot proof of purchase. Reviewers use this fact
as an advantage
(excuse) to why they allow complaints under the façade
as guest visitors or
replies by those that are not
able to verified the use of the service. Seriously, don't be
naive and think that
vendors should be the only one required to verify their trade
performance because verification should also be applied to clients of
the vendor and reviewers of the vendor especially when they are
recommending a service.
In contrast, if the
reviewer is partner with the vendor...the verification standard must be
higher and ongoing on a quarterly basis along with an audit
of the financials of the
partnership just like any other business. All of these critical flaws
have resulted in the reviewers now posting reviews of other reviewers
(questioning each others review tactics and conclusions, accusations of
receiving payments for positive reviews) as they fight
to keep their followers on social media.
Yet, remember this, Dr. Dean
Handley of Global Trade Titans, Emmett
Moore Jr. of Tradingschools and Warren Ouma of
Valforex are not
the only reviewers but they all have a commonality...criminal backgrounds.
TheStrategyLab itself has a simple
verification process...post DOKs to verify
learning of WRB Analysis and post timestamp screenshots of trade
fills (simulator or real money) in broker trade execution platform in
private thread to
verify application of WRB Analysis. Its
info I use to give traders access to other resources offered by
TheStrategyLab star rating of the Reviewers:

With that said, he could have
received a 4 star review rating had
he discussed in his review that members of the free chat room verify
their understanding of the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide, some users
(including myself) of WRB Analysis post
their real-time trades and many users (including myself) post
redacted broker statements / screenshots of timestamp trade fills in broker trade
execution platform along with the fact that I maintain a public archive
chat log (registration not needed to review) of the trades & price action analysis via WRB Analysis for
able to attend the free chat room for whatever reasons.
Heck, he could have copied and then reposted any of
my redacted screenshots from any webpage / forum
message post to his review of TheStrategyLab instead
of talking about his own trade performance while
using my free chat room.
By the way,
he posted no verification of his trade performance
(simulator or real money) after replicating my posted
trades from the free chat room most likely because
readers may ask him to show his timestamps of trade
fills to see if they correlate to the timestamps of
the trades posted in the free chat room.
In contrast, I would
have given him a 5
star review rating had
calling trade alert room. It's a service I do not offer and have
animosity towards vendors with that particular business model.
Further, it would have been nice had he mentioned a critical aspect
involving my trading...I minimize the
risk of ruin
as a day trader via intraday market tendencies, position size management
and diversification (investments).
Regardless, he still verified with me that he actually used one of our
resources via being a guest visitor to the free chat room although he
misled me about why he's using the free chat room.
Simply, he should have discussed in his review
of TheStrategyLab that he
trade performance considering my admin logs reveal that he did view the
archive chat logs, many clients redacted broker statements / screenshots of trade
fills in broker trade execution platform, my redacted broker statements /
screenshots of trade fills in broker trade execution platform do in
fact correlate with the posted trades in the free chat room. Further, he
verified in his
review that my trade performance is in fact via WRB Analysis...not
due to being lucky month after month although I do welcome (embrace)
a little luck when it does show up in my trading.
Therefore, due to my experience with Dr. Dean Handley as a
guest visitor...I no longer
allow guest visitors to the free chat room unless they're able to verify
their learning / application of the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide to
ensure that all users of the free chat room are there because of their
understanding of WRB Analysis.
The free chat room started in 2002 and traders have been warned since
the birth of the free chat room to
not copy / mimic / piggyback posted real-time trades because
the chat room is not a signal calling trade alert room. Those that do
try to piggyback our trades...the traders are banned. My experience with
Dr. Dean Handley helped alert me that I need to do a better job in
new users of the free chat room. Dr. Dean Handley gave TheStrategyLab a
Yet, he later
removed TheStrategyLab from his Global Trade Titans report
of top trade rooms when I refused to pay for a seminar (speech) that he
was going to be giving...payment would have ensured to be continued
mention in the report. In contrast,
several clients of TheStrategyLab have their own take on the issue. They
believe he removed TheStrategyLab because he realized he should have
reviewed us as a "trade room" via comparing us to signal calling trade
alert services that he prefers to call live trade rooms when he
already knew we were
signal calling trade alert room that has a guru trader telling others
what to trade, when to buy and when to sell.
Oddly, he maintains something called a "dropped list"
(.pdf file) at the
Global Titans Trade webpage. If you click on that list shown in the
screenshot link below...you can review whom he has dropped although each
dropped trade room have no specific reason to why it was dropped. Just
as strange...TheStrategyLab is
not on the dropped list. Lets see...we get a positive
review...mentioned in Stocks & Commodities magazine, FuturesTruth magazine and MarketClips as a top trade room by Dr. Dean Handley.

Next, we refuse to pay to be continue mentioned in the follow-up reports

although I replied sarcastically via asking him how will
he remove TheStrategyLab name from his already posted positive review in
several publications ?
The next publications he
mention the name TheStrategyLab as if he made us disappear so that he
need to provide an explanation to his readers about our removal.
You should also see
something odd at the above screenshot for Dr. Dean Handley's
dropped list statement. He states in his first
paragraph that he's not
a compliance officer nor an auditor. He essentially is implying its his
opinions and not
facts. Also, he's implying its not
his responsibility to determine if there's a change in the review status
of a vendor / trader. Ironically, the dropped list status itself implies that he does
in fact change the status of a review as if he's behaving as a
In contrast, you'll
see a different story below for the reviewer Emmett Moore Jr.
@ Tradingschools. He
often uses a
different phrase at his review blog in which he states his reviews are
because he sent you an

opinions and that he'll change a review if he gets it wrong. He
too is implying he's a compliance officer via referring to his reviews
as official reviews / emails.
these reviewers represent
government agency and you must assume its
just hearsay opinions unless they copied the info from a
government source or they're able to
post verification info about their opinions.
My guess is that
Emmett Moore Jr. has more litigations because he views
himself as a compliance officer or an
auditor via continuing identifying himself as an
via saying its an official review /
official email when he's just a SEC felon that makes false statements in his
reviews to entertain his readers. Regardless, it does make me wonder if
Dr. Dean Handley has done that before in other
positive reviews...you remain
as a Global Trade Titan if you cough up a payment. Yet, if the vendor /
trader refuse to cough up a payment...they're quietly
removed (disappear) as if the positive review never happened.
Anyways, this so called
"dropped list" should question the sincerity of the entire review
business involving reviews by Dr. Dean Handley and Emmett Moore Jr...two
individuals that strangely are former business partners. I say
strangely because Emmett Moore Jr. still behaves as a troll,
hacker with criminal online behavior while Dr. Dean Handley holds a
Juris Doctorate JD (cyberlaw)
degree although I'm not sure if he's taken the state's bar exam.
Seriously, a JD (cyberlaw) is a cybersecurity lawyer...a marriage of
online technology and law. These individuals plan to pursue a degree in
legal studies, privacy law, intellectual law or cybersecurity.
thickens about the relationship between Dr. Dean Handley and Emmett
Soon afterward, Emmett
Moore Jr. (a review blogger) telephone calls TheStrategyLab for a
review although I'm
not sure if he and Dr. Dean Handley were still business partners.
Thus, I considered the telephone call very
suspicious because of the timing and Emmett
Moore Jr. was unable or unwilling to
provide a reason for the call except to say he received complaints.
Just as suspicious, he started avoiding my questions when I asked him
about his relationship with Dr. Dean Handley.
Yet, it was a time period when I had just banned
a few problematic trolls...the most problematic troll was one that was
very angry that I would not
allow him to market / advertise his automated trading systems & custom
indicators to my members, he made threats on my family and said he will
Other trolls were
banned in the recent months prior
to Emmett Moore Jr. telephone call. Those trolls were banned for either trying
to use my free chat room as a signal calling trade alert room,
lurking, impersonations, using VPNs & rented IP addresses to hide their identity,
disruptive / distraction / arguing because I would not
allow them access to the live screen share meeting.
TheStrategyLab - A trader that enters the free chat
room but does not post real-time trades and does not
post verification of trade performance in their
private thread via screenshots of trade fills in
broker trade execution platform. Lurkers get a
warning...if the trader continues to lurk...they are
then banned and
password changed to help keep out those that
change their IP address in an effort to try to
bypass the ban.
Also, any trader that
request to use the free chat room as a guest
visitor in an effort to bypass the
qualification rules for access to the free chat
room...they are told to just read the archive chat
logs that are automatically uploaded later at night.
We begin enforcing the no lurking
rule for the
free chat room in 2014
and we quickly made a few enemies by those unwilling
to post any verification of their trade performance
via WRB Analysis.
Dr. Dean Handley can do better reviews via actually
talking about the products / services by a vendor
instead of getting fixated on signal calling trade
alert rooms that he prefer to call live trade
rooms. In addition, he needs to be more
transparent via discussing his
business partnership with Emmett Moore Jr. to quiet
the growing rumor about these two individuals.
In-Depth Review & Interaction with Dr. Dean Handley
I will begin
my in-depth review with Dr. Dean Handley via mentioning his academic background
BS (Biology); MS (Biochemistry); PhD (Molecular
Genetics); MBA (Finance); JD (Cyberlaw) is very impressive. In fact,
we begin our interaction talking about college and I
understood how difficult & demanding those particular
degree subjects are in college.
Thus, it was the reason
why I allowed him into the free chat room as a guest visitor because I
assumed he would use a research scientific approach to
analyze the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide
or the Fading
Volatility Breakout (FVB) free trade signal strategy...foundation
of the science aspect of my trade methodology even though there are two
other aspects involving art & psychology.
Simply, I have my own unpublished research statistics
involving the science aspect and I thought he would be a an excellent
third party to validate my own research without him being aware of my
own research. Therefore, Dr. Dean Handley is fully aware that my trade
along with knowing I do not believe a trader can be
profitable via technical analysis alone. An interesting analogy
involving pizza is why review only one ingredient when there are other
ingredients involved in that pizza.
Therefore, I was hoping that he would correlate his research of my trade
method with his scientific
research of my posted real-time trades / broker statements / screenshots
of trade fills in broker trade execution platform
or do the same with a
few users of the free chat room that uses WRB Analysis. Simply, he would
have needed to learn the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide and
then backtest it on the same trading instrument that I was
Next, he would then needed to
the backtest results to the quantitative statistical analysis of my
trade performance to be able to make any valid statistical analysis and
then publish those results with some of my redacted screenshots to
verify my trade performance to determine the merits of WRB Analysis.
that's a time consuming endeavor...not something he could have done for
hundreds of vendors that he reviews. A reason why reviewers take short
cuts so that they do not
need to learn the trade method nor
backtest it unless its been coded / programmed for them.
Yet, I did tell
him that I have a new policy in place in which users of
the free chat room must now
their learning / application of WRB Analysis. He responded via asking
for access to my free chat room as a
with the agreement he would post
the verification info just like other members...he never posted the verification
info after gaining access to our free chat room and its one of the reasons why I
no longer allow guest visitor nor anyone else to use our free chat room until
they verify their understanding of the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide.
Regardless, many members of TheStrategyLab prefer to use a
professional trade journal software
for their quantitative statistical analysis to analyze their trade
performance via WRB Analysis and they then post their results in their
I will disagree with him when he stated online that he
considers himself to be an emergent expert and the foremost authority on
futures trade rooms considering he's
able to distinguish a
with a guru trader telling its members what to trade, when to buy
and when to sell versus a
that requires members to post their real-time trades and to use the
as a trade journal of their trades to supplement to add critical
information to their broker statements.
Anyways, I ask to read
his past reviews so I can determine what type of vendor / services he reviews
and to give me some insight about this reviewer.
He gave me some links to his past reviews (positive reviews & negative reviews)
and they seem fair considering I have clients that have used those services (not
satisfied). Also, the reviews I read, they gave me the impression he was more into
analysis of someone's trade performance via whatever trade method the vendor was
using. Yet, I notice something odd...he also reviewed signal calling trade alert
services. In fact, most of his reviews were about signal calling trade alert
services. In addition, he used phrases like trades are easily accomplish
instead of specifically referring to them as
signal calling trade alert
That's a phrase
(trades are easily accomplish) someone
uses when they're trying to copy / mimic / piggyback
trades posted in a signal calling trade alert service.
In fact, it allowed me to learn about how these types of
vendors market their services via phrases like that and
how reviewers market / recommend the services of these
types of vendors in the signal calling trade alert
business. That prompt me to ask him why is he doing a review of TheStrategyLab
when I do
offer a signal calling trade alert service just to ensure there's no
misunderstandings about his agenda in my free chat room ?
- I am aware that you do not offer a
trade alert service. I'm reviewing the trade
method and monitor your trade performance. I will use statistical analysis to determine the
merits of your trade method...I will then give you a
preview of the review to allow you to make any
corrections prior to posting the
I have read /
understood / agreed
that is the reason why he wanted access to my free chat room to
keep his own statistics of my posted real-time trades,
trades posted by users of WRB Analysis and to talk to the users of WRB Analysis.
In addition, I assumed he was going to examine the
screenshots of trade fills in my broker trade execution
platform to see if they correlated with my posted
real-time trades...he actually did do that. Simply, I thought his access to the free
chat room was so that he'll have direct access (real-time) to users of WRB
Analysis because it was much better
than reading emails or online messages outside
of TheStrategyLab by those that are
verified users of WRB Analysis.
on image to review real money trading results)
I then gave him the user names of those in the free chat room that were
only users of the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide versus user names of members
that were using our fee-base trade strategies called the Volatility Trading Report
Thus, I wanted Dr. Dean Handley to know which users in the free chat room
were using key concepts from the WRB Analysis Free Study
Guide with their own custom trade method versus which
users of WRB Analysis were using our Volatility Trading
Report (VTR) trade signal strategies.
It's obvious to me that the main criteria for reviewing
the merits of a trade method is to look at
clients broker statements or
screenshots of timestamp trade fills in broker trade execution platform
along with testing their understanding / knowledge of the trade method
to remove luck as an important variable in their trade performance. I'm
not sure why reviewers are unable to use that as part of their analysis
about a service.
Regardless, all users of the free chat room are required
their understanding of WRB Analysis Free Study Guide to
gain access to the free chat room for posting of their
real-time trades or WRB Analysis comment as a supplement
to their broker statements. Thus, the purpose of the
free chat room is to be a
of the user...not a signal calling trade alert room
although I prefer members to use a professional trade
The question is this...how many vendors has Dr. Dean
Handley reviewed that the vendor maintains a private thread section for
traders that uses its trade methods to post their redacted screenshots
to verify trade performance and verification of understanding the trade
method as we do here
TheStrategyLab like the above redacted screenshot by a
user of WRB Analysis ?
His first week in the
free chat room...I warned him about a few trolls that had been
sneaking into our free chat room and harassing our members that posted
their real-time trades and broker statements in their private threads.
Also, I told him that I regularly
ban traders when I catch them trying
to use our free chat room to copy / mimic / piggyback the trades posted
in real-time by any member. In addition, I told him about tactics I used
to help identify these trolls involving my questioning of a suspicious
new member that primarily has been debating with other members
or making negative comments about
trades by other members while
posting any of his own real-time trades.
I gave him a direct link to a public area that users of WRB Analysis
posted their full broker statements @
including an open offer to give him more
up to date broker statements
from the private thread section that have been
along with direct links to our free discussion forum
where members posted their DOKs to verify their
understanding of the WRB Analysis Free Study Guide
considering he was
allowed into our private thread section until he himself became a
verified user of WRB Analysis.
I then alerted our
members about his presence and purpose so that they will be open to his
questions about WRB Analysis. In
fact, I told our members to tell Dr. Dean Handley what they liked and disliked
about our education resources to ensure we're being transparent. This prompt a
particular new member to immediately contact me (privately) and warned me
not to trust Dr. Dean Handley and that
goal was to give me a bad review along with warning me that he's currently
involved in several legal litigations. Continuing, this new member stated that
Dr. Dean Handley only gives out a few positive reviews and he will then ask me
for money to stay in good status with Dr. Dean Handley.
This new member then
stated he was a former business partner of Dr. Dean Handley and that if I didn't
listen to his warnings...he would ensure that I will get a
negative consequence. That phrase by
him about a negative consequence was unusual to read and it revealed to
me this new member didn't like Dr. Dean Handley and had the intentions of
punishing me for allowing Dr. Dean Handley
access to my free chat room. In addition, I thought it was strange that the new
member showed up about the same time (a day later) after
to Dr. Dean Handley showed up in the free chat room. How would this new member
known Dr. Dean Handley will be there ?
That conversation with the new member prompt me to
research his identity considering he refused to give me
his real name. I was then able to
correlate the new member IP address (his real one and not the rented IP address he
was using in the free chat room) with a prior
recent troll of TheStrategyLab that had been harassing me including making
threatening comments about my children if I didn't partner up with him about his
grandiose automated trading systems & custom indicators he was
trying to market on IRC in other chat rooms and to my
Regardless, that phrase
(statement about a negative consequence) revealed there's a problem
within the review business and it wouldn't be the last time I would see that
unusual phrase. In fact, as you continue reading this rebuttal about reviews of
TheStrategyLab...you'll learn that I'm big on researching
unusual phrases that someone uses
towards me to help me to identify them and their true agenda.
Specifically, I use their writing habits
as a fingerprint
about the character of the person.
I then discover the new
member has snuck into my free chat room also via VPNs & impersonation
of another member that had not respected the new access policy for the free chat
room. Thus, I immediately banned him
for his trolling, impersonation, threats and violation of the new policy that
new members must have
verified the understanding / application of WRB Analysis Free Study Guide
prior to being allowed access
to the free chat room.
The new member was not
verified and more importantly...he ignored my request for the verification info
and he refused to give me his real name.
Review in Futures Truth (excerpt)
Fast forward, Dr. Dean
Handley talked very little to users of WRB Analysis and his preview of his soon
to be posting of a positive review along with stating our free chat room had
made it into his
Global Trade Titans report
(Trading Futures Successfully on the
Shoulders of Giants 2013 - #4 issue of
I believe that occurred in 2013 - 2014. Yet, he later removed
TheStrategyLab from his report after I refused to pay to support one of
Reality, it was just a
disagreement between him and I but I was grateful for him originally
including TheStrategyLab in the Global Trade Titans Report because the
fact remains...we do not
offer a signal calling trade alert service and our free chat room was
still consider one of the best in comparison to vendors that do offer a
signal calling trade alert service.
Dr. Dean Handley ranked us in the top 10 futures
rooms out of 422 rooms he reviewed although others in
the top 10 were signal calling trade alert rooms. That's
still a good ranking to correlate with our top 10%
trade performance ranking in the
2019 CME Group Trade Against A Pro Trading Challenge.
Fortunately, we have our own
copies (.pdf and magazine because I am a subscriber to S&C) of the positive review prior to us being removed from Dr. Handley's Global
Trade Titans report and removal from his database for
refusing to pay for his seminar. Yet, we're not allowed to post the
copies because we do not have copyright permission to do
& Commodities (issue
December 2013) and
Truth (issue 2 & 4)
magazines although we are allowed to post these excerpts.
Review in Stocks & Commodities (excerpt)
In addition, we were mentioned in
an article with the weird title as Altruistic Andromeda All
Star Series...the first mentioned in that article series.
Unfortunately, we were not able to obtain a copy of that
article about top trade rooms & chat rooms. There's
another excerpt from a similar
written review from a MarketClips article
thing is that even the positive reviews in the above
magazines and other magazines that I have not mentioned here...they are in fact the start of the misinformation
& misleading statements about TheStrategyLab via implying a trader could mimic / copy
/ replicate my trades but they
do not mention I will ban traders for
trying to mimic / copy / replicate my trades
or copy the trades of any user that's
posting real-time trades in
the free chat room even though they knew such as fact while
they were reviewing the free chat room.
stated in email communication with traders, how to access
instructions, stated again in the log-in instructions and I post
reminders in the free chat room when I see someone in the free chat room
that are not posting any real-time trades for several
days of log-ins. In fact, traders that continue logging into our free
chat room but not posting real-time trades...I eventually weed them out
as in remove them from the chat room. Then if they return the next day
and still refuse to post their trades and refuse to post screenshots in
their private thread of trade fills in their broker trade execution
platform...they're removed from the access list and the password is then
How To Gain Access to ##TheStrategyLab Chat Room
Next, those that ignore my private
messages and emails or they're using
VPNs or rented IP addresses while
ignoring me...they're banned. In addition, I ban any
trader that I suspect is behaving like someone that's there to copy /
mimic / replicate my trades. Therefore, its impossible for someone to
think that they did not know the free chat room was not a signal calling
trade alert room (live trade room). Unfortunately, there are a few
reviewers that categorize or compare our free chat room with signal
calling trade alert services (they like to refer to them as live
trade rooms)...services that have a guru trader telling its members
what to trade, when to buy and when to sell.
Also, these positive reviews do
not mention the fact that my real-time trades posted in
the free chat room do in fact correlate with the screenshots of trade
fills in broker trade execution platform and you can see the timestamp
delay of the trades posted in the free chat room after
its executed in my broker trade execution platform. In fact, these
reviewers do not discuss the obvious timestamp difference
between the broker trade execution platform in comparison to the the
trades posted in the free chat room. Most likely such is not mentioned
because I'm very vocal since year 2002 that a trader can not
replicate trades posted in a chat room, trade room or live stream. In
fact, my screenshots proves such as fact when you review the timestamps.
Now back to Dr. Dean
Handley's positive review. I
was under the impression that
Dr. Dean Handley is reviewing the merits of WRB Analysis
via my trade performance and possibly reviewing my ability to transfer that
knowledge to others via the results shown in their broker statements. Simply, I
initially thought I would get an average review because
I did not offer two key services that interest these
reviewers...I have no signal calling trade alert service and
Fast forward again,
many members and I were shocked to read in his
used our free chat
room as a signal calling trade alert room and he gave no
indications (verification) to me that he understood the WRB Analysis Free Study
Guide along with the fact that he did not mention anything about the broker
statements nor screenshots of trade fills (simulator or real money) in broker
trade execution platform for his trade performance while using our free chat
room. Yet, he only stated that TheStrategyLab is honest and transparent.
Yet, he did say we were transparent and honest...something I greatly
appreciated but he should have explained into the honesty involving our
archive chat logs of real time trades by members, members broker
statements, my screenshots of trade fills in broker trade execution
platform that correlate with my trades posted in the free chat room.
Just as importantly,
did Dr. Dean Handley disclose to any member of
TheStrategyLab nor to me that he was going to copy / mimic / piggyback
/ replicate our real time trades. Had he disclose such...he would have been notified
that TheStrategyLab does
offer a signal calling trade alert room, its
possible to replicate anyone's real-time trades and that he
for trying to use our free chat room as a signal calling
trade alert room.
He was a guest visitor to do
as he originally stated to gain access to our free chat
room. Actually, I was expecting to see some kind of stats
comparing the results of simulator trade performance
versus real-time trade performance so that I can use the
info from a 3rd party to show the differences in the
trade performances when real money is on the line
disappointed me because
he used TheStrategyLab for services we do
believed in. This will lead others into believing they can
do the same thing and then if they try...we
them which then results in creating another trader that
trolls us because we banned them. Further, I was more disappointed that
he was not able to post any verification (e.g. screenshots of timestamp
trade fills in his broker trade execution platform) of his trade
performance to verify he was able to achieve the results he stated he
received and verify his application of WRB Analysis while he used our
free chat room.
Regardless, you can
determine the merits of the trade method via your ability to copy /
replicate someone's posted real-time trades...its the most ridiculous
thing these reviewers do. That left many members of TheStrategyLab
scratching their head while knowing that Dr. Dean Handley had
asked them any specific questions about WRB Analysis when he was in our
free chat room.
