VancityTrader Testimonials page, Comments from students of VCT!

"I did not have any previous knowledge or training on futures. I used to trade equities with very inconsistent success and even blowing up an account in less than two months. My decision to learn futures is due to the intention of going around the PDT rule and simply to have a fresh start. The mentorship with Lino started in September 2015 with much hesitation. There are other more popular chat groups and gurus out there, but I was hoping to get a more personalized training from him and he definitely did not disappoint. He would always follow up on my homework, would review my trades and gave feedback within a few hours. He is readily available to answer my questions through Skype or email. The first thing I noticed about his style of trading was it is very simple. No fancy indicators, but enough to generate a reasonable profit every day. He explains these in detail through videos and through the one-on-one mentorship. Fast forward to 2016, I passed the Topsteptrader combine in 13 trading days with a full time job using the setups I learned in the mentorship and I am working on getting funded next. He still answers my questions to this day and would constantly give advice on how I can become a better trader overall. A good amount of screen time, reliable trade setup, and solid mentorship definitely helped me in the Combine."

I am towards the end of my mentoring program and it has been an invaluable experience. Being mentored by Lino has been eye opening as he utilizes simple indicators to identify the setups, and emphasizes the most important trading concepts like Price Action and Risk vs. Reward. His strategies and concepts are clearly what give him an edge and they have helped in my own trading as well. Regardless of your experience or knowledge, mentoring with Lino is a sound investment to jumpstart or amplify your trading goals.

The best way to learn is from a teacher. You can read books and or watch videos online on how to trade but at the end of the day if you have a question the book or online video isn’t going to answer them for you. Lino has been a tremendous help in honing my skills. I have had experience in trading stocks aswell as futures but did not have any rules or plan to make consistent profitable weeks. He taught me to follow rules, risk/reward, and taking trades with confidence.


It’s not a complicated system to learn and Lino will teach you what you need to succeed and help you achieve your goals. I enjoy sending him my trading screenshots and getting his feedback about the trades I took. He is very active in responding to your email or skype messages and he is very easy to get a hold of when you need his help/advice. Since getting into the market 5 years ago this was the best experience learning from someone who does this professionally.

I focused every day on learning and watching the ES futures. Best decision ever, I'm now on my 5th week of trading it and have reached my goal every day. My daily goal is 300, some days I make more and some days I hit 300 and walk away. I use what you taught me along with the market profile indicator and the RSI to show me over bought and over sold. A few times a week after I get done with the ES I'll switch over to the sim and try oil, and sure enough I fail. I just don't think oil is for me. I'm sticking with the ES as it is a money maker for me personally. My goal is to trade through July to make sure I really do have it down and then finally quit my job. I wouldn't be here today making money daily if it wasn't for you. I went from losing cash daily to now making it daily. Thanks again Lino, I'm forever grateful.

I was extremely skeptical when I was in search of a mentor for day trading. Since a lot of mentors want you to pay them to mentor you and then sell you tons of indicators, and then on top of that they dont spend much time with you. Well don't worry, I found none of that to be true with Lino! He is a genuine mentor that will ALWAYS respond to you in a timely manner, doesn't up sell ANYTHING, and teaches you the ropes! I went to Lino looking to advance my trading career and improve my profit. One of the things I found most helpful was sending him my charts daily. The first time I sent him my charts he sent me back a video about 15 minutes long and I WAS IMPRESSED!


He takes your chart and talks about it in a video and sends it back to you. and FAST. Also, he doesn't care what your question is whether its an obvious question or not he answers them fully and makes sure you understand. I asked him tons of questions and he was very patient with me. Now I am turning over $200 on average per day on one contract! I trade only an hour or two out of my day!


If your looking for an amazing mentor look no further!

Signing up for the mentorship program with Lino was the best thing I could have ever done for my trading.  His system is simple, easy to follow, and most importantly it works.  The one on one time and video reviews he does of your charts is incredibly valuable.  The consistent feedback is what really drove me to become a better trader.  I have the confidence to take trades without hesitating and am consistently profitable.  Lino is a great mentor and stand up guy.  Do yourself a favour and train with Lino, you won't regret it.

Lino is a great guy, loves teaching and sticks to his rules, the hardest thing in trading. Following the live market with him was fun and we even made some money.

Without the help and support from Vancitytrader, I would of given up very quickly or lost a TON of money.Everything I read online, was very contradicting and confusion for getting into futures trading.


Lino got straight to the point and provided constant and instant feedback, VIA Skype or Email, on every question I had.

The One on one sessions he provided, take away a LOT of confusion and will help give you the confidence to be a successful trader.


My only advice is stay consistent, and be patient.

"Vancity Trader is what was missing from my trading to become a consistently profitable trader. The 1-on-1 sessions with Lino as well as his daily video reviews of my trades is what’s been the most valuable for me. Since without feedback I had no idea how I was doing. It’s one thing to learn a simple a trading method, it is another to become consistently profitable with it, and this is what being mentored by Lino did for me."

I have been a student of Lino of Vancity Trader for about 2 months and have been very impressed with both his knowledge of the technical aspects of day trading and the wonderfully simple way that he teaches his system. I have maintained a 70/30 win loss ratio when using the powerful trading setups.


The strategy really WORKS and is easy to use. You don't need a financial background to succeed with his methods. He shows every student how to identify entry and exit points. He explains the importance of money management and the need to eliminate losing trades. He teaches the discipline to wait for the proper time to enter a trade. He also teaches you when to accept a loss and move on to the next trade.


I am very convinced that you have some strong trading techniques that deserve to be studied and copied.You have both necessary ingredients to good trading:


1) A good technical strategy that shows a trader not only when to get into a trade, but also when to get out of a trade;

2) A good grasp of the importance of getting the emotions out of the trade. 

Now that I have gotten my ego out of the way (I can trade better than Lino. !!!), only joking it is time for me to become a pro.


PS: The greatest thing about learning from Lino is his genuine enjoyment of watching his students make money from his teaching and strategy. He is both a successful day trader and a remarkably talented instructor. He makes my day trading not only profitable, but enjoyable.

Futures trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
