This NEW 12-week course is designed to help you to analyze stocks and execute short-term trades in a proficient manner. (A short-term trade is accomplished with a daily price chart and usually lasts from one to five days.) Techniques for creating charts, scanning markets, and structuring trades are explored. Simulation trading is emphasized as an important means of applying course content and developing good habits for market participation.
At the end of the course, you should be better able to:
(1) apply technical analysis to stocks with increased understanding.
(2) find potential trades in a time-efficient manner.
(3) execute trades with various methods.
(4) manage risk with greater versatility.
(5) identify laws, regulations, and tax-reporting requirements.
A weekly online session of approximately 30-90 minutes will be provided. Charting tools and market scanners provided by stockcharts.com serve as a backdrop for application of trading methods and risk-management approaches that are conducive to short-term stock trading.
Simulation trades are made through the use of current price data, but without a funded brokerage account. Although the exact number of trades is dependent upon market conditions, you are encouraged to initiate at least 30 trades during the course. A journal template will be provided for records (numerical information related to each trade) and reflections (thoughts about the selection and execution of each trade).
At the end of 12 weeks, you should have enough information to make an informed decision about whether to practice further or trade with money.
