About This Course

Published 6/2015 English

Course Description

My names is Joe Donohue and I worked on Wall Street for 25 years. Each lecture should run about 5-15 minutes.

My course will take a very basic and understandable approach to swing trading stocks. My average holding period in a stock ranges from a duration of few days to a few months. Whether you have had difficulty or success in trading stocks I believe this course is for you.

I will teach you how to understand basic overbought and oversold indicators and how to best use moving averages, volume indicators and trend lines to your advantage.

The course will initially be comprised of about 4 videos and about an hour's content. I will be using stock charts to help you see exactly what I see before making a trade and I will teach you the importance of learning pattern recognition. History repeats and so do chart setups.

What are the requirements?

  • Everyone is welcome
  • Please bring a deep desire to learn
  • Full time or part time traders are welcome.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Anyone who "finally" wants to learn discipline trading stocks.
  • Many folks can pick stocks, but managing your wins is more important.
  • If you are looking to "scalp" stocks, this course is not for you.
