This is a "foundations" course for successfully trading the stock market.
The essence of good trading is revealed - it's not what you think.
Where does alpha come from - trading is not a numbers game.
Overall market analysis - you must be in sync with the market.
Identifying groups and stocks to do business in.


  • Just a computer and internet access.
  • Desire to learn about succeeding in the market.


The percentages say few make it as traders, but unlike the NBA, which requires freak athletic ability or something beyond your control, or becoming a doctor, which requires a high IQ, hundreds of thousands of dollars and a lot of time, successfully trading the market is realistically within your grasp.

In this mini masterclass, Jason Leavitt teaches trading. It’s part art and part science; it’s part mechanical and part intuitive. With a delicate blend of both, you can successfully navigate the market and make a solid income, full time or part time.

It's not easy, but it can be simplified. And it's closer to your grasp than you think.

Trading is a performance activity. It's hard if you consider everything, but it's doable because you have the ability to clearly identify something that works and something the clicks with your personality. You can then practice and get very good. If you are terrible at 99% of what's out there but are very good at just one thing, you can make a solid living.

This is a foundations course. Underlying theory is taught - the rules are the same as with business, sports and gambling. A discussion follows about where alpha comes from – trading is not a numbers game. Overall market analysis and stock selection follow.

If you’re new, this course is a great way to get started – it’ll put you on the right track and shorten your learning curve. If you’ve traded for a while but can’t seem to get over the hump, this course can get you there.

Who this course is for:

  • Beginner traders looking to shorten their learning curve and get started on the right track.
  • Intermediate traders who can't quite seem to get over the hump.
