Welcome to Trading for Beginners – Entry Level. The Entry Level is our Tier 1 course and as with all of our Tier 1 courses, they are free to you. Their purpose is to allow you to explore the material that will be expanded upon in our higher Tier courses without any obligation.
In Trading for Beginners, we take the student through establishing a solid foundation of market fundamentals, teaching you what the market really is and why trades really happen. We develop a lexicon of market terminology, an understanding of Risk, and an ability to analyze the markets using both Fundamental and Technical analysis. We conclude the course with live trading examples. The material is presented to you through lectures, video, and cartoons to help make more complex topics approachable.
Please keep in mind our Tier 1 level course is a sampling of our higher Tier courses. Because of this, it includes only part of what the higher level courses offer.
Who this course is for:
