Advanced Course

This Advanced Course is fully dedicated to the development of a complete FOREX trading system.

  1. with all the analysis and money management rules behind us and a good psychological make-up we are ready to tackle the next major step towards your financial freedom.
  2. the aspiring trader will be taken on a journey of different trading systems, taking into consideration all the possible gyrations a market can make.
  3. it doesn’t help to concentrate on trend-following systems when the markets are ranging more than 60% of the time. Transitions from ranging to consistently trending are not always that well defined. We need to prepare ourselves for most of the turns the market can bring us.
  4. utilizing a combination of technical and fundamental analysis together with price action, we start with range-trading models followed by trend-following systems. Emphasis also on breakout strategies, important news trading and trading the open of UK and US markets.
  5. the purpose of the Advanced course is to have a good understanding of all the different trading systems: when to use which method, proper placement of stop-losses and profit targets etc.
  6. it is highly recommended to have Forex experience prior to attending this course. Knowledge and insight of the Forex Market is a minimum requirement. Click here to view the Beginners/Forex Introduction course.

Many active traders seem to find it difficult to obtain consistency in making profits day-in day-out. The usual suspects mentioned in mainstream literature are: (i) not applying your trading rules strictly enough, (ii) lack of understanding of leverage, (iii) breaking the rules of risk management and (iv) traders lacking discipline and patience.

However besides these commonly observed derailment factors one realizes soon enough there’s more to it. This course is dedicated to active traders who have a lot of technical and fundamental knowledge but seem to fail in their efforts even if they adhere to the abovementioned factors.

This course emphasizes the following 6 aspects in detail:

  • Wrong use of indicators and technical analysis: how the media sell the concept of TA and what academic reports say about the profitability of TA
  • Failing to look at the (hidden) important aspects of forex trading: getting insights into market makers’ manipulation and the use of a proper money management system
  • How Forex markets really work: finding the inefficiencies in the market and how these inefficiencies do give us a real ‘edge’
  • Failing to develop a trading system only applicable for trading these ‘edges’
  • Why our personality type is important in trading: we are not aware but we are biologically not wired to trade successfully. Add to this our impulsive reaction to our emotions when we are under stress and we have a dangerous cocktail not conducive to profitable trading
  • Finally worked out trading systems for trading all our ‘edges’: every trading ‘edge’ needs a different trading systems set-up. We set up guidelines and a complete set of rules.
