Diploma in financial trading & investment

  • The Opening Bell

    When studying any subject matter, it is first necessary to ask the questions of who, what, when, where and why. In our introductory lesson, we will plan our educational journey while learning the basics of what we need to know to become profitable traders.

  • Leverage, Margin & all the Jargon

    In lesson 2, we will learn to talk like trading professionals. Whether its running with bulls or winners, we need to know the terms used in the trading world, to both trade effectively and get to the point. You will learn all the key terms and concepts that you need to begin in the world of trading.

  • Let the Trading Begin

    Text books will only get you so far and you will reach a point where there is no better way to learn than “to do”. In this lesson, we will show you how to navigate your very own demo trading platform and to start practicing with no risk immediately. This is where your dynamic really kicks in and makes for a fun and educational experience.

  • Candlesticks – Shedding Light on Opportunities

    In order find opportunities we need an efficient way of measuring price - right? Well, charts allow us to do just that. As technical traders, we use Japanese Candlesticks, a very simple and effective style of charting. This lesson will introduce you to price action, reading candlestick charts, doji, engulfing pattern formations, counter retail trading and many other tools you will need to learn to trade successfully.

  • Technical Charting 101

    Expanding upon lesson 3, you will learn to develop your technical skills like, finding and utilizing channels and trend trading techniques; highlighting breakouts, support and resistance, with counter retail strategic entry and exit techniques for each trade made. This is very much where the ‘how to’ begins.

  • Becoming a Counter Retail Trader

    This lesson brings together all the previous Technical Analysis lessons, focusing on methods of finding Counter Retail Trading opportunities - our speciality. This includes an examination of moving averages, simple & exponential; all focused on attempting to find that confirmation we need to trade profitably. This lesson is not to be missed.

  • Psychology of Real World Trading

    Often overlooked in other trading courses, we do not ignore the importance of a good mental state that is required to trade successfully. Real life explanations and examples of the difficulties which real traders face each day are discussed. Practical steps are illustrated to reduce the psychological difficulties faced by real traders and how you will mitigate those using our own in-house developed software. This is when everything really comes together.

  • Protecting your Capital

    Trading, like all other forms of investing, carries risk. It is through that very risk that profits may flow. An understanding of the interconnected and inseparable nature of risk and return is fundamental to profitable trading. Making money is one thing, keeping it is another.

The team do a great job at cramming so much information into each hourly session. It never feels like cramming though and stays in the memory easily.
