In the industry of stock market training, integrity and transparency are rare commodities. From the very beginning, we are clear that if we cannot make money consistently, we have no business of teaching others how to trade. Also, even if we do make money, how will other students learn from it?
The best (and the only) way to accomplish that is by trading live in front of everyone. That is the whole premise our Trading Room. Our students can watch us trade in real-time and can learn from the strategies we are deploying.
At the end of the day, we also recap the net profit/losses for the day and conduct an extensive post-mortem analysis of how well we traded that day.
Our aim to be best and be the most transparent organization in the field of stock market training.
Learn by Doing
How good is a book in learning how to swim? It is good enough to get you started but there onward, you got to get into the water. You will need a coach to take you through the learning process but it is you who have to be in the water. You can’t learn much by standing outside.
Trading is like swimming in an ocean with tides and sharks. Not only you need to be a great swimmer, you also need to know how to not get eaten away- everyday. A beginner should not just jump in and hope to survive for too long. He should first start with a safer place like a pool and gradually take higher calculated risks.
Therefore, we spend an enormous amount of time training our students in the concepts of risk management, trade management and trading psychology. Once the student know how to do all that, we ask them to trade in small positions that they can comfortably trade with. Gradually, we help them scale up and provide the guidance to start performing at their highest level.
Trading is High Performance Sport
Just like a high-performance athlete has to be trained in rigorous conditions for a long period of time before the actual performance, a trader needs to be trained on the market with the same kind of rigor and discipline. We have designed our program to instill the same spirit and endurance in our students. We push our traders more because we expect the best from each and every one of them. Winning and losing one single competition doesn’t matter to an athlete- what really matters is his consistency and success rate. In the same way, a we train our traders to become consistently profitable and not obsess over big wins.
All said and done, only the well trained and the strongest minds will survive in this market.
