Trading is a competition between two sides where there is always a winner and a loser. In our Core Strategy courses, you will learn skills and techniques to help you buy and sell ETFs like a professional trader. We will teach you a simple, rules-based strategy which is designed to keep you on the winning side. This strategy helps you to identify key market turning points and major moves in advance. The Core Strategy courses (formerly known as Professional Trader) focus on stock trading using ETFs, although the skills and discipline you will learn are applicable to any asset class. The course is divided between Core Strategy (5 days) and Part 2 (2 days); which are taken together. We deliver powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.
