***Update: More than 1,100+ student enrollments in the first 5 days of the release ! Join us !***

Are you curious about the world of investing ? 

Have you always wanted to know more about investing but didn't know where to start ?

Are you tired of so called "investment experts" or financial advisers who can't explain anything clearly and whose primary concern seems to be finding a way to part you from your hard earned money ?

If you've answered YES to any of these questions then No Bull Investing was created with you in mind. 

I've been active investor and trader for over 10 years and through the years I've heard all the miraculous promises of so called investment professionals who lure people in with provocative titles & guarantees such as "$1,000 of profits every week like a paycheck" ,"execute 98% of your trades for WINS", or some other unrealistic pipe dream all while burying a disclaimer in their presentation materials about how they are not liable for any losses you MIGHT incur while following their advice. 

I will admit, as I'm sure many of you can relate, that I've fallen victim to some of these great marketers as well (notice I said marketers and not investment professionals !). 

Well the buck stops here. 

The No Bull Investing course series was created with a very simple mission - to once and for all - take the BS out of learning about investment themes for the average/everyday person.

The No Bull Investing course seeks to arm you with the knowledge and tools needed to help you understand which investment themes are appropriate for your individual risk tolerance and investment goals. 

Aspects of this course will cover:

  • How someone can assess what their investment goals and risk tolerance are
  • Simple explanations of popular investment theories
  • Walkthroughs of the different asset classes and how to properly make investments using them (stocks, fixed income securities, options, futures, commodities, currencies, and much more). 
  • Macroeconomic & event-based trading strategies that can be used for profitable trades consistently.

In this course you'll receive:

  • Educational guides, financial models, and links to applicable articles & websites
  • Access to email to ask the course author any questions
  • All future course updates, FOR FREE
  • An absolute guarantee of NO BS from the course author or your money back !

The instructor's introduction and curriculum outline for the No Bull Investing: Investing 101 for Financial Freedom Lecture Series.

Preview 02:43

So you finally decided you wanted to start your journey learning about investing huh?

That’s absolutely fantastic! It’s at least clear to me by purchasing this course that you have a basic understanding or at least a healthy desire to understand how to make your money work for you, because let’s face it, when you really sit down and think about it there are really only two legitimate ways to make money: by working and/or by having your assets work for you – which would be investing.

So at this point you’re probably shaking your head, saying yeah I know that already. So tell me what SHOULD I BE INVESTING MY MONEY IN? My answer to that is going to be…..I DO NOT KNOW!!!

So let me clarify that, I do not know what YOU should be investing in personally.

Why? Because I’m missing a few pieces of critical information that need to be obtained before going down this road.  So let’s examine some of these in greater detail.

Preview 09:47

Now that you hopefully have a general idea of what your risk tolerance level might be and hopefully also the beginning of an outline for your individual investing goals we can now get into some of the major investment categories also known as asset classes that are available to you in the investing world.

In general there are 4 main asset classes:

  • Cash or Cash Equivalents
  • Fixed Income or Bonds
  • Equities also known as Stocks
  • Alternative investments (Real Estate, Futures, Commodities, Option, Bitcoin, etc.)

Let's explore Cash Equivalents and Bonds

Investment Types & Asset Classes Part 1: Cash Equivalents and Bonds
19:13

In this lecture we’ll move up on the risk/reward pyramid to talk about Equities also known as Stocks and then we’ll end with a discussion diving into the topic of alternative investments.

Investment Types & Asset Classes Part 2: Equities and Alternative Investments
14:08

In this lecture, we’ll briefly talk about 7 of the more popular investing theories. Now the purpose of this lecture is not to give an opinion on which theory I think is correct but to simply introduce you to these concepts so you may have the knowledge to form your own opinion and decide whether investing in stocks is the right choice for you. 

Preview 15:50

In today’s lecture we’re going to build on our last discussion regarding various investing theories by ensuring you understand the difference between the concepts of trading and investing. Now there are clear distinctions between not only the objectives of being an investor vs those of being considered a trader but also as you might imagine your risk tolerance level also plays a critical factor in deciding which concept is appropriate for you.

The purpose of this lecture will be to explain both concepts in detail to help you decide which method most fits your personal circumstances.

Investing vs Trading - Why You Need to Know the Difference
18:51

Now that we have a basic grasp on what the concepts of trading and investing are especially in the context of stocks, it’s now time to understand how we actually go about either investing or trading using our own money or properly stated, our own risk capital.

Also considering that we now have a good foundation on the main types of investments at our disposal, we need to take the next step which would be choosing and opening a brokerage account. Having your money i.e. risk capital deposited into a brokerage account will allow you to make investments and trades on your own or with the assistance of a broker in many of the various investment types we’ve talked about earlier.

Choosing the Correct Brokerage Firm
15:36

Now that we’ve discussed the steps necessary to open a brokerage account, it’s now time we discuss actually preparing ourselves for making our first investment and/or trade. There’s a high probability that you may have some apprehension about committing any money to this still seemingly foreign subject of investing and/or trading. Your fears are definitely warranted. Committing real capital at this point is definitely premature and would likely end in a loss more often than not. Why do I say that? Well that’s because we’ve haven’t actually talked about or performed any of the quote on quote mechanics of actually placing a trade through a discount broker’s platform be it investing in stocks, bonds, or any other investment type that we previously talked about.

So the purpose of this lecture is to explain how you can practice making various trades in different asset classes and hopefully start to understand the process without committing any money by using a feature called “virtual trading” which will simulate market conditions and the actual trading/investing process online all while using “virtual dollars” as your risk capital.

Virtual Trading – Your New Best Friend
19:51

Now the next step in our educational process after becoming proficient using our chosen trading platform is to now take a look at the some of the tools you can use to analyze the markets for potential trade ideas and strategies. In this regard, your chosen broker should logically be the first place you should reference as most of the discount brokers we mentioned have fairly decent tools in this area. However, in this lecture we’ll focus on some of the unaffiliated tools one can use to make sense of the universe of nearly 4,000 actively traded stocks in the United States and more than 15,000 internationally.

9 Lectures 02:30:48

In this particular step in our journey we’ll set the objective to understand how to actually buy and/or sell various financial instruments. This lecture we’ll continue to focus on stocks as the asset class of choice

Stock Trading Basics
19:47

Welcome back, in the last lecture we discussed buying shares of the company Apple’s stock in our example. Now many out there just may be thinking in regards to that example, wow Apple was expensive at approximately $108 just for one share. This may even be the reason why many of you haven’t considered stocks in the past due to the high variations in cost associated with being able to buy just one share of many of the great companies you know of let alone the many shares needed in order to start building a significant stake in a balanced investment portfolio.

Well in this lecture, we’re going to discuss how the average cost-conscious investor/trader can actually start accumulating shares in some of their favorite companies despite the high cost by investing in fractional shares using some very innovative platforms and methods.

Fractional Share Purchasing
11:08

Welcome back, in the last lecture we discussed buying shares of the company Apple’s stock in our example. Now many out there just may be thinking in regards to that example, wow Apple was expensive at approximately $108 just for one share. This may even be the reason why many of you haven’t considered stocks in the past due to the high variations in cost associated with being able to buy just one share of many of the great companies you know of let alone the many shares needed in order to start building a significant stake in a balanced investment portfolio.

Well in this lecture, we’re going to discuss how the average cost-conscious investor/trader can actually start accumulating shares in some of their favorite companies despite the high cost by investing in fractional shares using some very innovative platforms and methods.

A Journey Into Exchange Traded Funds
13:10

Hello again, in this lecture we’re going to be discussing one of the oldest and most established investment vehicles available to investors in the world. Any ideas? Well if you guessed mutual funds you’re definitely correct. With more than 130 years of history, approximately 80,000 different investment fund options, and over $31 trillion dollars currently allocated globally, mutual funds are without a doubt a subject every investor needs to be familiar with.

Uncovering Mutual Funds
18:52

Hello again, in this lecture we’re going to come back to a topic we discussed at length in one of our first lectures, which was bonds. Now to build on that same train of thought, we’ll actually dive into the mechanics of buying and selling bonds online through first the US Department of Treasury’s website Treasurydirect.gov and then through a discount online broker’s platform that supports purchasing fixed income/bond related securities.

Examining Bond Investing Online
19:32

Hello again, in today’s lecture we’re going to talk about one of the most versatile investment vehicles in existence today. Equity options allows the traders and investors who truly understand them the ability to profit in almost any situation regarding the stock it is related to. However, if you remember options are at the top of the risk-reward pyramid. Given the often misunderstood volatile nature and risk involved with options, most investors tend to steer clear of this very unique investment.

Now the purpose of this lecture isn’t to make to you a professional options trader in just a few minutes but hopefully give you a firm basis on why you need to understand how options work, how you can potentially profit substantially from them, and finally how to properly weigh the risk associated using this investment type.

Understanding the Keys to Equity Options
17:24

Welcome back, in this lecture we’ll be discussing the world’s most traded market.  Foreign Exchange or most commonly known today as Forex has an estimated global turnover of $5.3 trillion dollars per day! The need for governments, banks, and global corporations to exchange currencies is the primary reason why the forex market is the largest, most liquid financial market in the world. Yet despite these impressive statistics, very few individual traders participate successfully in this market.

The high leverage involved with Forex Trading combined with the sometimes rapid pace of a decentralized marketplace often drives most investors to many of the other asset classes we’ve discussed in this course so far. However, the purpose of this lecture will be to hopefully paint a clearer picture of this unique investment category to help you better decide if Forex trading is the right investment strategy for your portfolio.

The Art of Forex Trading and Investing
18:20

Hello again, in this lecture we’ll once again be focusing on another rather fascinating part of the derivatives market which are futures. Standing today as one of the oldest & most actively traded markets in the world, surprisingly, futures trading still seems to be an obscure subject for most traders & investors not directly tied to the profession in some capacity.

As outright standard futures contracts trading may be too capital intensive for the average investor just beginning their educational journey on this subject, we’ll be focusing on using something called e-mini and e-micro future contracts which were introduced in the late 90s with the goal of these instruments making it much more affordable for individual investors and traders to enter this market for the first time. 

Solving the Mystery of Futures Trading
19:08

Welcome back, in this lecture we’ll be discussing the opportunities available to investors interested in exploring international investments. There are a number of investment vehicles that the individual investor, probably such as yourself, has that can give one’s portfolio the necessary exposure to foreign assets for achieving the goals of risk adjusted diversification and growth outside of your home market.

Hello again, in this lecture we’re going to cover a topic I often get asked about from a wide range of people. Binary Option trading is a relatively new form of trading and what many would argue is a controversial form as well in terms of legitimacy and opportunity available to the average investor. We’ll take a closer look at this intriguing investment vehicle and hopefully you’ll be able to form your own conclusion by the end of this lecture to determine if this type of investment warrants further consideration.

Should I Consider Binary Options ?
14:24

Hello again, in this lecture we’re going to talk about a type of investing that has seen tremendous growth in the last year. The evolving landscape of equity crowdfunding is providing fresh new opportunities for the average investor to get involved with a variety of young companies and inspired entrepreneurs from various industries for the prospect of substantial financial gain in the future. We’ll dissect this exciting new investment category to hopefully help you determine if Equity Crowdfunding Investments are right for your portfolio.

The Age of Equity Crowdfunding
15:27

Hello again, in this lecture we’ll be discussing a couple of the options investors like yourself have in the real estate market using the concept and power of online group investing. In the first part of the lecture we’ll be discussing the more traditional methodology of utilizing publicly traded real estate investment trusts to get exposure to various types of real estate sectors such as industrial, retail, timberland, or even data centers. In the 2nd half of the lecture we’ll be discussing a more recent investment method which will detail various websites investors can access regarding online real estate crowdfunding.  

Approaching Group Real Estate Investing Online
15:54

Welcome back, in this lecture we’re going to be discussing another intriguing alternative investment category that has seen tremendous growth & also been gaining more and more main stream attention in recent years from investors seeking to further diversify their overall portfolios. Peer to Peer lending & Investing, or better known to most as just p2p, has spawned innovation in the multi trillion dollar consumer credit market and has also through the power of internet, seemingly overnight, transformed the business of personal and small business lending. 

Navigating the Peer to Peer Investment Landscape
18:28

Hello again, in this lecture we’ll be discussing another alternative investment category that has a very rich history and depending on your personal interests could be something you’re already involved in heavily. Collectibles, Antiques, and Artwork are often investments stereotypically associated with either millionaires or those with a passion or borderline obsession with a particular theme. However, for those willing to put in the time and energy into researching popular sectors of these categories, very decent and in some rare cases astronomical returns can be the ultimate reward.

A Hunt for Treasure: Collectibles, Antiques, and Fine Art
17:53

Welcome back, in this lecture we’ll be discussing another unique and rapidly evolving investment category. Digital Currencies and more specifically a form of digital currency called cryptocurrencies have in a matter of a few short years grown from what was once just a niche technological fad for a very small user community to a multi-billion dollar industry that has imminent implications to revolutionize how banks, governments, businesses and even the everyday consumer both process and accept payments globally. In this lecture we’ll discuss the various options investors have in potentially making digital/cryptocurrencies a viable part of an overall investment portfolio.

The Case for Digital Currencies
18:43

Welcome back, as we close out the No Bull Investing for Financial Freedom Lecture series, we would be remiss not to educate you on the tactics of a few nefarious individuals who unfortunately use the principles and cover of investing education for their own personal financial gain by pushing various scams on unsuspecting parties. In this lecture we’ll cover some of the most popular and common investment scams to hopefully help you spot and then avoid a serious pitfall on your journey to true financial freedom.
