ChartSchool 2/21/18: Bearish setups in stock markets?


Trading is not a get rich quick scheme. It's a long, difficult journey, but substantial rewards wait at the end of that journey--it's absolutely worth it!

There are many ways to succeed in the markets, but you must have an edge, find some advantage, and you must be able to apply it with discipline.

Successful trading is not about learning some tricks or even gaining knowledge--it's about growing to become a trader. That process--growth and becoming--is the heart of the trader's journey.

Here, we give you the knowledge and tools you need to become a trader and to build a profitable system. We will help you create everything you need to execute that system in the market.

"Adam's work is excellent... and helped me move from hit and miss frustration to consistently profitable, stress free, relaxed trading. In my 10 years of trading I can't think of anyone's work I admire more."


"Adam's ability to explain things in a clear and simple way has no comparison--simply the best and crystal clear. I would recommend your work to anyone who wants to learn how to trade the markets. I could go on forever praising your work, but there is one word that says it best--it works. Simple as that."

"My trading has improved immensely and for the first time I have a sense that consistent profitability in the market is possible.... There is a saying, 'When the pupil is ready the teacher will appear.' If you're ready, Adam Grimes is a great teacher."


Adam Grimes has over two decades experience as a trader and system developer. He’s worked for small firms and big firms, from the farmlands of the Ohio Valley to the trading floors of the New York Mercantile Exchange. In addition to his work with MarketLife, he is also the Chief Investment Officer and Managing Partner of Waverly Advisors, LLC, an institutional research and advisory firm for which he writes daily market commentary. Adam is the author of the The Art & Science of Technical Analysis: Market Structure, Price Action, and Trading Strategies (Wiley 2012). He is also a contributing author for many publications on quantitative finance and trading, and is much in demand as a speaker and lecturer.

In addition to being a trader, Adam also has deep training in classical music (piano and composition) and classical French cooking. His perspective is both deeply quantitative and practical, and he has done extensive personal work developing his skills as a teacher, coach, and mentor. He is fascinated by the limits of human knowledge and peak performance—specifically, how do we get there and stay there, and how to teach others to do the same? Adam’s relentless focus on trading excellence and self-development through financial markets has created a unique body of work that has helped many traders move along the path to trading success.
