to acquire the necessary skills to grow a portfolio like the pros.

for a "yield" far better than other common investment
methods. Unlike other sites and educational materials, we include
turnkey software that rates stocks in real time, supports live
charts, simulates stock and option trading, and can replay the entire market for "practice"
Each section below includes a live seminar session (webinar)
as well as written material. All sections include access to our
powerful software products.
Part 1: Basic Basics
is an ocean of stock market information available,
especially since the advent of the internet. Some
of this information is useful, some of it
not, and in fact, some of it is outright misleading.
What is one to do in a universe of conflicting information?
Basic Basics section will sort this out for you,
teaching what you need to know for successful portfolio
growth and what can be discarded. You will also
learn how to read the "tea leaves" to
know what the big money insiders are betting on.
if you are a seasoned trader, you could find this
basic information both valuable and a confirmation
to what you might already intuitively know.
Part 2: Art
of the Chart
stock chart is the heart and soul of trading because
it can reveal the underlying prospects of the underlying
company. One way or another, a stock chart reflects
all composite knowledge of everyone buying or selling
a chart can be a daunting task, and while entire
books have been written on the subject, traders
can still call it "wrong." In this section,
you will learn all about technical analysis, what
is important, and what is not important.
ability to interpret a chart is the key to the kingdom!
Part 3: Why
every trader has developed "systems" at
one time or another. As an example, they will only
(and always) play a stock that hits a new high during
the day. Or they will play only stocks that gap
down in the AM. The problem with any of these systems
is that they eventually fail, or suddenly fail over
long stretches of time.
section will articulate the reason for this system
failure, and how you get around the temptation to
set everything on "auto pilot."
gyrations are controlled by people, not robots.
So why would you pick stocks like a robot? The only
way to sustained success is to adjust to the market
and its ongoing gyrations.
Part 4: All
are contracts between shareholders and potential
shareholders, and they provide a way to achieve
large leverage at a fraction of the normal cost.
Options trading is considered "feast or famine"
by some due to their volatile nature, but successful
investing should adopt a few options strategies
in one form or another.
example, a portfolio manager can obtain a much higher
yield by selling options against stocks that are
held long term. Or engaging in option spreads which
are low-risk money making instruments.
section will cover the ins and outs of options,
the pros and cons, and the correct strategies to
suit your level of risk.
Part 5: Safe
traders shy away from options because they have
a reputation for sharp losses and are inherent with
other horror stories. But there are various forms
of options trading, not all of which are high risk,
and some are even safe for portfolios that cannot
tolerate losses (such as IRA's and 401K's).
section covers the safer strategies with options,
including credit spreads, debit spreads, and covered
the mechanism of options can produce a much higher
yield than straight stock investing, so this is
a "must know" for any trader.
Part 6: Large
Accounts (IRA's, 401K's)
people assume that they must leave their IRA's and
401K's in the hands of professionals. The downside
is that most fund managers only perform as well
as the market. If the market goes sideways or down,
your account is dormant or loses money.
the other hand, the idea of trading our own account
holds the stigma of high-risk and even gambling.
So what is one to do?
answers is knowledge: how to employ long-term
trading strategies and how to hedge against losses.
When you become your own financial manager using
these techniques, you are likely to get substantially
more "yield" than leaving it in the hands
of a third party.
Part 7: Software
