These first 2 days back have been great!! I joined your service back in late October right after I had quit my job as a commodities trader and decided I was going to start day trading for myself. I traded for 2 weeks then but I realized I didn't have any kind of plan. I liked the vibe in your chat room for the little bit I had seen back in October so I am extremely happy to be back. I have already learned plenty from you in just my two days back and you seem to fit my style of trading. I also don't think it's a coincidence that I had my best ever day today. I figured out this is going to be my room going forward and you are going to be my mentor. I am going to switch my subscription to the year after this month is over. Looking forward to being a part of your community.
I am reaching out to you first to say that every time you get real in the morning and talk about the mental game of this business it just opens my mind even more on how this business is almost 90% mental and 10% technical. It's taken me a while to figure this out on my own but, with your assistance, I've been able to adapt to this much quicker. I just wanted to really say thank you for helping us all achieve some of our goals faster. JP
Thank you very much, JP.
Barry Thank you very much for such a straightforward honest answer(which is your hallmark). You are bringing lots of positivity in people's lives and their families. I can tell you that and hope it helps...Go easy on yourself! Babar
You are very welcomed Babar!
Thanks for a wonderful day, it's a calm place #ITA No rush, you always say we will find the next one, don't worry you just need one good one.and so much more. Always learning and the trades come along with it. Much respect and love for those "eyeballs" 🙂 One of the things I like is that ICEMAN is not screaming and chest thumping. He is focused, he is there for you and wants you to ask him something. The whole day this guy is giving lessons impromptu. It's like diamonds falling from his mouth and u pick them up. Tariq
Thank you Tariq! ICEMAN
Can't say it enough. Thanks for caring, asking, helping in any way u can. Much respect to a great trader and an even better person. You dragging me but will get to the top!
Barry, Thank you for all of your help this past year.I never told you this but I want you to know how much of a difference you've made to my thinking. Daniel
You are very welcomed.
Barry is one of the best investment coaches/teachers I have worked with. He is constantly teaching throughout the day. He seems to take more pride in showing us what to look for and how to execute a profitable trade than he does in his own profitable trade. "Take a paycheck," is burned into my trading pysche. Barry answers questions throughout the day from members in the chat and he teaches you how to identify winning trades and strategies. He teaches patience while waiting to strike when the opportunity presents itself. His day trading is remarkable and he identifies great swing trades while using the same strategies. Barry's willingness to help is truly appreciated ! Thank you ------
Hi Barry, I clearly saw a huge difference in my trading during November. Due to a trip to Japan and Thanksgiving, I only traded 12 days during the month. 10 out of 12 days, I was green. Unprecedented green day ratio (83%). Also, Winning trade ratio was 62.3%. I can now wait for a set up and I can see a setup when it is ready. I can comfortably add to my position when I see an opportunity. I no longer force trades and I can restrain myself from clicking my mouse just for the sake of being in a trade. I wanted to share my progress with you as my mentor and teacher. Thank you for all of your time and effort you put into the room. It is clearly paying off. Best, Masayoshi
I was a little torn about writing this review because I feel like it would be letting a secret out; however, the desire to help other traders like myself meant I had to write it. You can read Barry’s personal story on his blog, but it doesn’t tell you everything about the man. First of all, he straight up knows how trade, and does trade, and makes a living from trading. That alone sets him apart from some others who claim to be traders and teachers. I have been in several of the popular rooms so I speak from experience.
I first came across Barry in another service where he was a moderator, and most of the subscribers would eagerly await his one hour of live on-screen action that complemented his trade posts throughout the day. The reason for this is that he would not just bring up trade ideas, but give the rationale/strategy, entry, risk and targets of where to take some off, add in to the trade, etc. It was basically insight into the mind of a well-rounded trader who had a trading plan and knew how to manage all aspects of each trade. When I found out that he was branching out on his own, with a desire to teach others to be self-sufficient in their trading, it was an easy decision to become a founding member of the Iceman Trading Academy. I have not been disappointed.
From a personal perspective, Barry truly cares about the traders and does a lot of teaching and explaining throughout each day. It is an open forum where members can post ideas and questions, and always get a detailed answer and guidance. The discussions cover both the technical and mental aspects of trading. If a trader gets himself or herself into a trade and needs guidance, Barry is there to help. Throughout the day, themes of risk management and trade management are emphasized.
Of course, don’t forget the actual trade ideas. Barry uses his scanners and previous research to bring up actionable trades all day long, providing entry, stops, targets and live management of the trades. This adds to learning experience, allowing you to learn and trade (and profit) at the same time. To complement Barry’s technical trading, he has assembled a great team of moderators to contribute their expertise and guidance. We have the Fibonacci expert Eric, Option Mike with the option flow and guidance, Terry with the energy plays, Pablo the short-selling monster (he trades long too), Julian with the ‘trade the news’ plays, as well as Ryan with solid calls throughout the day. They all contribute great ideas and guidance. This makes the room very well rounded and there is never a shortage of ideas.
The bottom line is that you have someone who is an excellent trader and legitimately wants to help others. Barry understands the responsibility of taking people’s subscription fees and delivers a lot of value. There is never a guarantee of success in this game as each trader ultimately has to pull the trigger and manage their own trades, but if you want to build up your skills and get access to solid trade ideas in one place, the Iceman Trading Academy is the place to be.

The measure of a person, especially a teacher is putting the student's wellbeing before his own. Not to be afraid to admit a mistake and to make sure that everything is geared to helping the student grow. Barry Mohan is such a person. He runs his chat room making sure his students are not only successful but learn proper trading techniques. He teaches step by step what he sees in the trade, why he takes the trade and even when he gets one wrong (a rare occurrence). I've been trading for quite some time and make some of the dumbest and losing trades sometimes. However, my ability to bounce back and to understand the market has grown immensely since I joined ITA. In a very choppy market, that has caused immense financial pain to many traders I know, I am up over $23k in 2 months (and would be a lot more but for my dumb mistakes). I am less blindsided by quick market swings against my position and often use that swing to add to my position and have banked even bigger profits. I have learned better to hold a slow but steady winning trade that ultimately pays off than to chase profits with a new stock (thank you $HCP, $OCLR & $FB all day holds that were very profitable). The market is a beast that once you think you've tamed it will teach you a brutal lesson that you haven't. The only way to continue to be a profitable trader is to keep learning and honing your skills. Listening to a moderator just tell you what to buy will never make you a professional trader. In fact, you will actually lose money long term because learning how to trade out of a losing trade is so important. Getting emotional during a bad trade has been my biggest challenge. Barry is teaching me where to put the proper stops so I don't give away my profits but more importantly that I take my loss and not try to average my position to turn a red trade green, mostly it just gets more red. Being a trader is not easy and it takes discipline that needs to be learned from someone willing to put in the time and effort to make sure you understand the many intricacies that are constantly playing out in the market. We traders are going up against bigger traders with more experience and capital than we have. Don't go it alone. I urge you to join ITA and learn the proper way to trade. Alan J Fein
Barry runs an educational service designed to help new traders develop what they need to become profitable in the markets. From strategy to risk management to psychology and so on. The trading room also consists of many seasoned traders that Barry has helped to elevate their trading to the next level. The room functions as a team where ideas are shared and executed starting premarket and ending at the close. Typical day: The room is open very early where members start to discuss the early action and Barry starts to write out his trade ideas for the group to watch. His trade notes include detailed trade plans including entry area, risk and target (His price levels are typically very accurate and precise as his background is purely technical). Barry shares his screen and is on mic at around 8:30am for general chat and to answer any questions anyone might have about a particular stock or trade idea for example. At 9am each trade idea is reviewed on the screen with areas of interest plotted and a plan explained in detail on each potential trade setup. From that point on we head into the open and Barry along with a couple of the moderators share the screen and mic for the duration of the trading day. Lots of actionable ideas are discussed. Barry and the moderators post all of their trades in real time in the room and discuss the ideas behind the trade. The Moderators all being their own unique experience and market insight. From trading the news to options trading and short selling experts you will find these traders posting their live trades as well and promoting and taking part in the educational-driven environment of ITA. Lastly, I have known Barry for some time now and his passion for trading and education was quite apparent from day one. He is a natural leader in the room who quickly earns his members respect by being completely transparent with his trading and showing how to be profitable in real time. I've been in a few trading rooms and this will be the last. Thanks, Barry for creating such a great environment to learn in and make a living trading the markets! Keep up the great work!

I just wanted to let everyone know how valuable Barry’s teachings have been to me in the early stages of my trading career. As a new trader, it has been very difficult to find useful and credible education in today’s trading arena. The industry is flooded with traders who flaunt extravagant lifestyles, charts that show that they never lose, and this pipe dream that trading is a get rich quick endeavor. Barry teaches sound and methodical trading principles. His insights in trading psychology is world class in my personal opinion. He offers a realistic and down to earth view of trading based on his own real world experiences. I really appreciate his transparency that presents an accurate view to day and swing trading. As good as that already sounds, it gets even better in the community he has created at ITA. Barry has brought together a great group of moderators who are just as ready as he is to lend a helping hand to any struggling trader. Thanks for all you do Iceman! Punisher
He Barry, for me it is know the start of the second month with you live at ITA like to say that I know finally started to make money. Within one month I learned to let the trade come to me. I am more patient and still make my own decision. The notes are very helpful to decide which trade I like to make. Just one trade a day keeps losses away. Thanks, bro for this live chat trading
Dear Barry. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you, the mods and the wonderful teaching environment you have managed to accomplish at ITA. No hype, no outrageous screaming, empty promises, just straight down to earth basic calm learning experience. Barry, you guide us through the charts, you remain calm and assertive which in turn helps all of us at ITA to do the same. I do not feel nervous taking trades any longer with you at the helm calmly guiding us through the trade. I would recommend you and the team at ITA as having the most sensible, realistic approach to trading. Thanks for starting this room! I am so happy to be a member of ITA.
When I heard, Barry started his own trading site, it was no surprise to me. Barry knows the charts. Great insight with a calm methodical way of teaching. His room is full of great mods all with their own way of trading and more than happy to share. Alerts from Barry and the mods are consistent. I am mostly a swing trader and I rely on his ideas. Great room, great teacher and first class trading environment.
Barry and ITA have changed my trading life. After joining ITA, I've realized that trading is more than making money. The room is about learning and growing as a community. When you present an idea, your voice is heard each theory is analyzed by Barry. I can't recommend ITA enough. Thank you, Barry, and to all the mods that give 110% every day. Kind regards, Luke
Barry gives you all the tools to become a professional trader. Scanning, charting, position sizing, entries, adds, exits. He lays it all out for you every morning with a detailed plan for the trading session, and then it's interactive teaching all day long as you trade live. Barry's a great teacher for a lot of reasons. He works harder than anyone in the business, he's extremely patient, and he relates to everything you've gone through on your journey up to now, because he went through it too. Along with an awesome group of moderators, ITA is much more a trading family than a trading room. Within days of joining, you'll feel yourself becoming a more confident, disciplined and consistent trader. Jamie
Day trading as a profession is a lot tougher and stressful than I thought. It is a long one tough journey if you want to become a successful full time day trader. Without a good coach, you could easily lose your sight, be angry at you (and your family) and divert from the right path even before you know it. I was in that situation before I met Barry. "Wait for the set up", "Let the trade come to you", "Don't force the trade", "Pay yourself because it is your job", "Don't let your employer (market) take your money", "Respect the chart and trend", "Take some profit and stop in the money". The countless live and real-time advices help me to stay calm and disciplined. I am still far from what I want to be, but trading with Barry and ITA's mods always keep me in check and help me to stay in the right path. Best regards, Willow
Traders, I've been trading my own account since 1996, and been through all the ups and downs of the independent trader. Had I met a teacher like Barry Mohan earlier in my career learning curve would have been exponential instead of a bumpy ride. Barry is a one of a kind teacher. You will learn to scan charts and quickly find the setups that will make money. Add to that impeccable risk management discipline and intelligent risk/reward assessment and you have the recipe for success. Luc D
