Trading is a competition between two sides where there is always a winner and a loser. In our Professional Trader courses, you will learn strategies that can make you a better stock trader. We will teach you 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. We deliver powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

“I highly recommend this class to anyone wanting to understand the logic, terms, and ideas of trading and making money. This class teaches you ideas to be successful in trading, while helping you understand the risks. Risk management was a very insightful learning experience.”

“I thought this class was a great introduction to Day trading. I have no experience or specialized knowledge of the markets, how to make trades, or read charts. But, after taking this class I can honestly say that I feel confident enough to go out and try some trades on my own. I was not expecting to have had such a comprehensive intro going into this class that I would feel confident enough to do that. I am thrilled to have this new knowledge and hope I can put it to good use.”

“As an entrepreneur and business owner, I place great value on creating my own success. Pro Trader is exactly the foundation I've craved to support my interest in beginning my trading experience, and the XLT community is the ongoing mentorship that had been missing. Don't invest another penny in the markets before taking Pro Trader!”

“Until I took this course, I didn't realize how LITTLE I actually knew/understood about the markets. NOW, I realize that there is a LOT more that I need to learn...although I can immediately benefit from what I DID learn.”

“As a relatively experienced trader, I found the information in this course very useful and foundational in allowing one to get better trading results. Anyone saying that this is just another technical analysis course has not taken it. Thoroughly enjoyed.”
