Next Class Starts In:
To be successful at trading, you need the right tools and you need to be motivated, to work hard, and to persevere. In his two books, our partner Andrew describes the fundamentals of day trading, explains how day trading is different from other styles of trading and investment, and elaborates on important trading strategies that many traders use every day. We recommend that new traders read these books before joining our community, in order to ensure that trading really is for them. You should not try trading if you are not aware of its difficulties and challenges.
These books, by no means, are stand-alone guides. They are in-depth introductions to day trading to help you know where to start and how to start this new career. To be successful in trading, you need to be a life-long learner and student of the market.

Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Bear Bull Traders different?
We believe day trading is a very serious and challenging career path. It is not for everyone, and interested traders should practice trading in simulators for several months before beginning to trade with a live account. Unfortunately, trading has been advertised as an easy way to attain financial freedom and change one’s life. Although there is great potential for success in trading, achieving that success requires practice, determination and, most importantly, a level of resilience and persistence that the majority of people interested in trading may underestimate.
We focus on the community aspect of trading in order to allow traders to learn from each other. Although we teach some well-known strategies, we by no means advertise them as a PROVEN or EASY-TO-FOLLOW path to success. Our training program is meant to be the first step, and traders need to work hard to learn new strategies and then adapt them to ever-changing market conditions, as well as to learn and understand the concepts of risk management and sound psychology. The latter is why we have developed Psychology Training Modules as part of our Education Center.
Our membership is not cheap, but we are priced at the low end of the trading education spectrum, although we know the value found in our membership is worth considerably more. We believe traders should save their money in order to survive the early losses that they will undoubtedly suffer. A very expensive trading course will most likely not be useful if it stretches your budget in a way that leaves you unable to afford the inevitable losses that you as a new trader will face. If proper risk management strategies have been learned in advance, these early losses should be small, and they should be considered a component of the tuition that the market demands to be paid as part of a new trader’s learning curve.
We offer a “no questions asked” refund policy because we believe trading is not for everyone. You may reach the conclusion that trading is not suitable for you at this time; we understand that does happen to people, and we show our appreciation for your time and effort by offering a full refund (other than the $450 fee for access to the DAS simulator which we will have already paid upfront to DAS, had you chosen that option at the time of purchasing your membership). To our surprise, no one has yet to abuse this policy, and we receive very few genuine refund requests.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We NEVER ask for your credit card information. We accept payments only via PayPal because PayPal guarantees YOUR security in your online purchases. If you do not have a PayPal account, we recommend that you sign up for one with them here.
If you experience trouble with your payment going through, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you to pay differently. We will never ask for your personal or financial information.
Which membership is right for me?
This is a tricky question to answer. If you want to give our chatroom a try to see what we are all about, then the Intro membership will provide you with access for 14-days. Just note that the Intro membership only provides access to the chatroom and our basic day trading lessons (and no other resources). If you prefer a monthly payment, then the Pro – Monthly will provide you with access to all resources (except for Lifetime content). However, we highly recommend our Lifetime membership as it comes with the added bonus of not having to pay any future price increases (you only pay for the Lifetime plan ONCE – there are no additional monthly or annual costs involved). As a Lifetime member, you will also have access to exclusive mentorship sessions with our founders, Brian and Andrew, as well as other experienced traders and moderators who are part of our community.
If you have further questions about which membership is best for you, please email email@example.com or leave a message in our Live Chat box in the lower right corner of your screen.
Can I copy moderators' trades in the chatroom?
NO! We are NOT a call out or trade alert service. Day trading is a fast process of decision-making and trade execution and you can never copy other traders’ trades. “Mirror trading” of other traders will likely result in heavy losses because when you follow other traders you are always seconds behind them. In addition, people have different account sizes, different personalities, different approaches to risk management, and different risk tolerance levels. No two traders can trade the same.
Andrew and the other moderators discuss their morning trade plan in the pre-market morning meeting. Once the market opens, you will see Andrew’s screen live as well as hear and observe him as he talks and walks through his trades. None of our members should “mirror trade”, they should use the chat to be in touch with other traders in case they have any questions or need any assistance. At times, useful tips and trade ideas are shared among our traders.
What is your Refund Policy?
Although we offer valuable recorded and live trading lessons and webinars, we also happily offer a 14-day Money Back Guarantee on our membership plans with no questions asked.
The only fee that is not refundable is the simulator cost ($450 for 3 months). If you select either our Pro-Monthly or Lifetime plan, both of which include an option to use the DAS simulator for 3 months, the $450 cost for the DAS simulator cannot be refunded because we will have already paid upfront to DAS the cost for your use of the simulator for 3 months. However, you can still use your simulator until its expiry date (3 months after the starting date), even though you cancelled with us and are no longer part of our community. It is yours, you paid for it!
If you are not certain that our community is right for you, please take out our 14-day trial to get a feel for the community. You can always upgrade to other plans after signing up. Just let us know and we will tell you how.
Can I cancel my account at any time?
Absolutely. You can go inside of our Members Home area and easily cancel at any time with no penalty – but do be mindful of our refund policy.
Our only recurring plan is our monthly plan. If you are being billed on a monthly basis, you will have access until the end of your cycle and you will not be charged for the next month. We cannot offer partial refunds for your current month however. If you cancel within 14 days of signing up, then you can receive your full refund (except for the DAS simulator fee, if you chose that option).
Our Lifetime membership plan is not recurring. You only make a one-time payment for a Lifetime membership. Please note that we are not able to offer a partial or full refund on our Lifetime plan if you cancel more than 14 days after signing up.
If you have any concerns you would like to discuss, or if you decide to request the cancellation of your account, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I already have a monthly or annual subscription and I want to upgrade to a Lifetime membership?
Do you have a phone number/is there somebody I can speak with?
Are there any additional fees with the Lifetime Membership?
How do the Lifetime Memberships work?
Many traders interested in our lifetime membership plan may wonder how this plans works. Essentially: What does “lifetime” mean? Whose life? What if I join as a lifetime member today and in 2 years the community is no longer around? What happens to my membership?
We agree that these are very fair and important questions, and we have therefore defined a refund policy for our lifetime memberships should the day come that Bear Bull Traders closes down. If for any reason Bear Bull Traders does not stand anymore, we will refund lifetime members based on the date they joined the community. We will deduct the number of months (or partial months) that they have been a member, based on the monthly fee at the time of their registration, and then refund the balance. An additional deduction will also be made if the member had purchased 3 months of access to the simulator.
Trader A joins Bear Bull Traders in January 2020 as a Lifetime Member at $1,449.
Bear Bull Traders shuts down in April 2020. In this case:
- Trader A’s plan provided 3 months of access to the simulator: $450 value.
- Trader A has been a member for only 4 months: January 2020 to April 2020.
- Monthly membership fee at the time of their subscription was $99.
We will refund Trader A their payment after deduction of $450 and 4x$99: $1449-$450-(4x$99)=$603.
Trader B joins Bear Bull Traders in January 2020 as a Lifetime Member at $999.
Bear Bull Traders shuts down in September 2020. In this case:
- Trader B’s plan did not provide 3 months of access to the simulator.
- Trader B has been a member for only 9 months: January 2020 to September 2020.
- Monthly membership fee at the time of their subscription was $99.
We will refund Trader B their payment after deduction of 9x$99: $999-(9x$99)=$108.
Trader C joins Bear Bull Traders in January 2020 as a Lifetime Member at $1,449.
Bear Bull Traders shuts down in September 2021. In this case:
- Trader C’s plan provided 3 months of access to the simulator: $450 value.
- Trader C has been a member for 21 months: January 2020 to September 2021.
- Monthly membership fee at the time of their subscription was $99.
Total value of services used by Trader C: $450 + (21x$99) = $2529. There will be no refund for Trader C as $2,529 is more than what Trader C paid when they purchased their lifetime membership plan.
We of course hope that Bear Bull Traders will stand for a very long time, but as nothing is forever, we introduced this policy as a way to support our lifetime members.
If you have any questions, or are interested in purchasing a Lifetime membership, please contact us: email@example.com
Does my DAS simulator time start immediately after purchase?
Can I trade the US stock market if I am not living in the US?
Yes, most likely. Many US-based or international brokers will open trading accounts for international traders and they can then trade in the US stock market. We recommend that you take a look at the TRADING TOOLS section of our website and enquire about the possibility of opening an account with the brokers mentioned there.
We actually have a number of members in our community who are from outside of North America. Members who live in Europe or Asia have an advantage in trading US equities due to the time difference. Being a number of hours ahead or behind of the New York time zone allows for members in Europe and Asia, and other parts of the world, to be able to work a day job and also trade, since the majority of the volatility and thus the best trading opportunities take place between 9:30AM and 11AM New York time. That time is either in the afternoon or evening for people living in European and Asian time zones.
We are often asked about utilizing our strategies and techniques in stock markets outside of the US. We have not tested these strategies outside of US markets, so it’s not possible for us to determine the success or profitability of the strategies on different exchanges. We generally recommend day trading only in the US markets though as they have the highest liquidity and volatility compared to smaller markets in other countries.
Since we have several international members in our community, we encourage all prospective members to have a look through our forums in order to get a sense of where our members trade from. We also encourage members to reach out to each other via the forum to coordinate meetup events as well as to keep in touch.
If you have any additional questions about becoming an international member of our community, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
