About Trader's Lounge Group

Traders Lounge was founded by Gandakoh last February 02, 2019. The group aims to help traders learn basic stock trading. The group advocates for FREE trading lessons, thus, all learning materials are free. Various medium are available from lessons inside Trader’s Lounge Facebook group, to Gandakoh’s personal trading blog, audio and video materials in Traders Lounge Official Youtube Channel. 

The group does not support any paid stuff related to stock trading education, including paid seminars, mentorship, courses, classes etc. TL does not tolerate those who claim they are helping others by selling paid seminars, courses and materials to traders.  Although, we respect those who bluntly admit that they are a business entity. 

By extending genuine help to traders, we envision to transform our members to become independent and responsible traders. By independent we mean, a trader who does not rely on opinions in buying and selling, someone who does not depend on stock recommendation and lured by stock hyping or bashing. Traders Lounge traders are woke traders who stick to trade strategies as sole basis for entry and exits. By responsible we mean, a trader who does not create or initiate hype and will help his or her fellow TL traders grow.

No. GC’s on Messengers, Discord and other platforms can be one of the many sources of stock hype and stock recommendations. We do not encourage you to be inside any GCs, unless that GC strictly follows NO STOCK HYPE, BASH and RECO. Some might be using group chats to covertly sell subscriptions and mentorship.

Disclaimer: Although, if you still opt to join such groups, we will not prohibit you, it’s your call. 

Do you have any mentorship program?

No. All materials inside TL are beginner-friendly and designed for self-study. All you need to do is take TABULA RASA STOCK TRADING COURSE.

Do you or any within TL members  give tips and stock picks(which stock is good to buy)?

No. We do not allow stock recommendation or stock picks inside this group. We do not control the market, no one knows where the stock will go, UP or DOWN.  What we have are TRADE STRATEGIES to guide our buying and selling. For Trade Strategies, kindly refer to TABULA RASA STOCK TRADING COURSE

We discourage asking questions like “okay po ba yung stock na to?, ano po sa tingin niyo aakyat ba si stock A?, buy na ba stock B?” and other questions of similar tone.

We encourage newbies to study first, read lessons, and backtest strategies. Only then you will learn to become an independent trader.
