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. We deliver powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

What Students Are Saying

“The online Core Strategy course was fantastic for me. I had taken the classroom version approximately one year ago and, due to some serious health issues, I was unable to pursue it further. With those personal issues now behind me, this very excellent refresher has reignited my excitement to get started trading. Good job, guys!”

“Core Strategy is the best trading instruction I've ever received. The strategy is fundamentally sound, and it’s further reinforced by the credibility of its instructors.”

“I thought the online Core Strategy would feel like I was less connected than being at the onsite class but that wasn't true. The online class environment was very engaging and invited active participation. I got all my questions answered quickly, and at no time did I feel stuck, lost, or behind. I loved being able to access the recordings so quickly after a session -- whether I had to miss that session or just wanted a review. That's another advantage to the classroom session vs the onsite class. I may have to rethink my preference for attending classes online vs. at the center because of this. However, I do like the camaraderie of being at the center, and lunch! Great staff at my center (Baltimore).”

“This class was amazing! Everything, including instructors, delivery, content, materials, technology was the Best! I knew absolutely nothing about markets or trading before taking this class. Now I have a foundation to start from and the tools to practice and achieve my goals. I couldn't be happier!”
