Previously I have taught many students ranging in abilities from no experience in trading to years in the financial industry. Including a wide range of backgrounds and personality types. At the business school we were teaching and mentoring an applied financial trading course.
The goal now is to teach students step by step how to develop a strategy that makes consistent profits consistently with low and managed risk. Starting with the introduction to trading.
I personally trade my own funds using fundamental and technical analysis using a system of analyzing the highs and lows on a chart to asses the underlying buyer and seller strength in the market.
