Course Description

Have you ever tried trading the markets and felt like you just didn't have what it takes to be successful? You're not alone! Most people that trade stocks and never get anywhere are violating some of the most basic rules that funds and institutions use on a daily basis to make money. This course will teach you one simple but effective method that will drastically improve your success rate in trading.

Learn how to measure what is going on in the market at a broader level so you can find success in your individual stock trading.

What if there was one simple thing that you could look at before you buy or sell a stock that would increase the odds of that stock moving in your favor by over 50%? This course is going to show you that one basic thing that so many traders ignore to their own detriment. And the best part is? Once you see it in action, you'll be able to use it yourself on any charting platform out there with no difficulty.

Are you one of many traders that thinks that whether a stock is going to go up or down is based on traders interested in that stock? Would you be surprised to discover that at least 60% of a stock's movement is based on factors that have nothing to do with the stock itself? Do you ever buy stocks on their way down, hoping for a bounce that never happens? This course will correct everything you need to improve your odds.

What does the course cover?

  • Learn three basic chart patterns that have proven success rates
  • Learn how to measure market direction using a simple institutional technique
  • Apply this technique to determine when you should be entering trades on the long side of the market and the short side of the market
  • Maximize your trading by blending the market directional technique with your chart patterns

It's that easy! In less than two hours, the course will give you one of the best tips you'll ever find for raising your success rate by properly measuring market direction and using that information to determine which patterns to take and which to skip.
