VIP Series: "Ah-Ha!" Moments to Better Trading

 

This invaluable feature of the VIP Package is centered on 5 predominant themes to successful trading delivered in short and concise 30-45 minute sessions. At the end of the series, we hope that you become a better informed trader and are able to hit the road running.  

What does the series entail? 

First, we will answer frequently asked questions from members or guests such as: "So how did Tony transform his trading?" And the classic question, "How exactly did he go from being an unprofitable trader to being able to leave his previous career and trade for a living?"  

These answers will be quite detailed and will illustrate Tony's journey from being a frustrated, tired, and unprofitable trader on the verge of quitting to being a very profitable professional trader with trading as his primary source of income.  

This series will cover the full spectrum of the absolute trading essentials, from taking your trading from a mere hobby to a full fledged business, to effectively utilizing a trade log. We will also cover: developing and managing a dynamic trading plan, practicing and perfecting the craft, and, most importantly, how to develop the right mindset for trading.
