The Technical Trader

Enrollment in this course is by invitation only

About This Course

Trading without a business plan, without a clear-cut system can be fun but dangerously costly. As with most endeavours in life, the key to success is knowledge and action. You do not need a financial degree or a doctoral dissertation in applied mathematics to become a successful trader. What you do need is a finely tuned trading methodology and constantly developing common sense and a basic understanding of technical analysis of markets. This highly practical course focusses on the overall framework of developing a trading model.
