Trading is a competition between two sides where there is always a winner and a loser. In the Professional Trader course, you’ll learn a simple, rules-based strategy which is designed to keep you on the winning side. This core strategy helps you to identify key market turning points and major moves in advance. Professional Trader focuses on stock trading, although the skills and discipline you will learn are applicable to any asset class. The course is divided between Part 1 (2 days) and Part 2 (5 days); most students take them together but you can complete the two sections separately for convenience. Each day’s agenda contains 2-3 powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with 1-2 live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

“I came in with no knowledge about trading. I had no confidence in using the trading platform. I am not a yet a pro but this class has helped push me far ahead of the novice trader. This has also motived me to get started with the next class.”

“I enjoyed taking the Professional Trader - part 1 class. I have a great understanding of what my core strategy should be, how to start my trading plan, and how to be successful in trades if I use the rules. Can't wait to start trading!!!”

“The class was full of valuable information about how to trade in the market with a clear cut plan of specific rules. Eliminating your emotions while you are trading stocks is essential. I have always allowed my emotions to dictate my stock trading decisions and therefore have lost money in the market. I feel much more comfortable now with a plan in place. I can't wait to begin trading with a plan in place. ”

“The Pro Trader class is a tremendous value for the money spent. In a few short days my understanding and expectations of the market have changed. I no longer feel like an investor "hoping" things will move in my favor. The concepts are straightforward and taught in a very simple manner. Mike Mc Mahon is an excellent teacher and I found his candidness to be refreshing. I feel the most important thing in this class was the re-enforcement that, in order to be successful, we must be disciplined, methodical and continually practice. Thank you!”

“I did not know anything about trading when I first signed up nor did I know what to expect from the class, but after taking the course I can honestly say I know so much more. I am quite impressed with the quality and the skill set of the instructors. The course material covers every possible situation as a trader you could encounter. Very clearly taught and demonstrated so that a new trader could grasp quickly. Excellent week of training.”
