Trading Foundations/Stocks and Equities

What's Included?

Equity traders appreciate the fact that the stock market is very popular and most feel they somehow understand it already since it is made of relevant companies who produce products and services we use each day.

Probably the most exciting part of the course is when all comes together in the form of a specific rule-based mechanical and objective trading methodology that will assist students to define entries and exits from now on.

In order to make learning and trading more efficient as well as saving time, the course will rely on the use of trading technology which could then either be used by itself or combined with other methodologies as well.
