The course has a quantitative approach. This website is all about quantified trading, and we believe this is the most rational approach to increase the probability of success in the markets – no matter the time frame.
Why would you learn to swing trade?
The course is for beginners. Trading doesn’t need to be complex. Most fail in trading because they don’t have the proper mindset and work ethic. The aim is to head you in the right direction and cut unnecessary time spent on wasteful detours and distractions. We’ll guide you to the essence of trading.
No matter your time frame, this course will get you going in the right direction!
Swing trading is a great place to start
Swing Trading is perhaps the best trading form a beginner can start with. Why?
Because it’s easy to grasp the concept and main idea, it takes little time to understand the concept, and you face a great profit potential if you’re good, systematic, and rational. We believe trading is about being systematic and making a good feedback loop so you can learn from your mistakes in order to improve.
Believe us, in trading you’ll do mistake after mistake! But that’s all right as long as you’ve got the ability to learn. In the end, you’ll have removed most of the basic errors and stand much better chances of being profitable.
It’s all about being flexible to make sure you are agnostic to anything that might work.
How long does it take to learn swing trading?
Swing trading is a continuous journey where you learn something literally every day. However, the more experience you have, the fewer mistakes you’ll make. Getting past the “beginner stage” might take six months for some, it might take years for others, and some never get it. There is no definite answer.
However, this course gives you a head start and in about a year of research and testing, you have come a long way.
Once you have passed the learning curve and know what you are doing, swing trading might take as little as 15 minutes per day. Unfortunately, you need to facilitate time and effort before you reach this level.
