Stan Weinstein’s method has stood the test of time with only minor changes since the book was published, which I’ve managed to find out through many years of researching the method. He continues to publish The Global Trend Alert service (GTA), which is out of reach financially for most people, except for institutional investors and high net worth individuals, and so I've created the Stage Analysis Forum as a way for serious ordinary investors to be able to learn the method and collaborate with each other on ideas.

So if you trade or invest on the stock market using Stan Weinstein’s method then please register for free and take some time to look around the the thousands of posts and charts in the forum, as it’s the most in-depth resource on the internet of Stan Weinstein’s Stage Analysis Four Stages Breakout method.
