Professional training... includes orderflow+ lifetime license


Learning to trade is traditionally only available to those who can beat out hundreds of other applicants to get hired at a trading firm. This training removes the barrier to institutional knowledge while also providing true personal one-on-one guidance.

Legitimacy and authenticity

 

The training is based on the same techniques and approaches as applied each day in the highly consistent live trading room.

Why one-on-one mentoring? 

 

The constant among the best traders is they have learned from more experienced traders and mentors who monitor their development and subsequently guide them on what changes are required to improve. By contrast, developing traders left to their own devices don’t have access to unique, robust and uncrowded trading techniques, hence the extremely high failure rate among independent traders.

Positive expectancy relies on the trader’s ability to constantly adapt to the ongoing changes occurring in markets while also developing trades based on truly unique ideas avoiding the vernacular trading decisions made by most traders.

How it works...

 

One-on-one training is delivered over a three-month period as follows:

Trading is via a third-party account and orders are executed using live pricing mimicking the order book. This is the same model prop firms use for their interns. In addition, just like traders in a prop firm, trading limits require you to adhere to certain risk and sizing parameters (service value of $485 USD  including two "resets").**

Included is a lifetime license of NinjaTrader 8 with lifetime access to order flow tools including volume profile, cumulative delta, VWAP with standard deviations, trade size detector, historic depth-of-market map and volumetric bars/the footprint (Value $1099 USD)

One-on-one training is limited to two vacancies per quarter with the training delivered via phone and TeamViewer.

Accessing the live trading room will reinforce what you are learning and developing. You don’t need to be present every session, just when you can.



The importance of experience

 

To develop into a competent trader, accumulated active screen time is required. This is best achieved by ensuring you are trading at least four times a week. It's more about continuity than overall hours achieved. With each completed 20 to 40 trades, you send screenshots of your trading to me (the software marks up the trades on the charts) as well the evidence points qualifying each entry and exit as covered in the first three weeks of the programme. In turn, I go over your trades looking for the one or two most significant areas that require modification. We catch up over the phone and remote viewing software to go over these aspects of your trading while also addressing all your questions.

Training sessions are conducted each week on the weekend and last for approximately ninety minutes. Each session is recorded and uploaded to the cloud so you can download and retain for future revision.

In addition to weekly sessions, you will email your daily market prep (see prep example) which I will review and respond to daily. This is a twenty-minute exercise required prior to every trading session.

Expectations

 

"We overestimate what we can do in the short term, and underestimate what we can accomplish in the long term"

While you will experience profitable days during the programme, it’s not realistic to think three months of training will transform you into a finely-tuned, consistently profitable trader. I like to be upfront about this. Rather in three months, you will have developed:


  1. An intimate understanding of how a directional trader repeatedly takes money out of the market.
  2. Competence in creating a trading blueprint (prep) to work from prior to each trading session.
  3. The expertise to comprehend the interaction between buyers and sellers, therefore knowing when to execute entering, scratching, flipping your view, removing risk, taking partial profits, taking all profits and lastly when to stand aside.
  4.  Robust defensive skills to avoid harsh drawdowns.
  5. A robust skillset in the application of order-flow tools as per the approach used in the live trading room.
  6. Enough insight into the trade-review process so you can continue to develop and improve as a trader autonomously.
** break any rule and the account must be reset. The training covers you for two resets. Any additional resets must be paid by you at a cost of $100 USD per reset.
