Investing & Day Trading Education:  Day Trading Academy

Experienced Trader

Our Mentoring Programs cater to all levels (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, and Professional)

Our intensive curriculum takes traders from point A to point B; teaching someone that knows nothing about Day Trading and giving them all of our combined knowledge and tips from our careers in the industry.

One of the most important things that we teach our day traders is the ability to read and understand the market.  When we really understand how the market moves, (and most importantly, why the market moves the way it does) indicators become secondary and the market becomes the primary thing we pay attention to.  It’s the market that we are trading after all, not indicators.

Experienced Traders CurriculumMore experienced traders who join us find our Intermediate and Advanced sections of the course address a number of techniques that will help reduce your risk and let your profits run.  Many traders use our method and techniques as a foundation for other markets to reach profitability.  It is about being able to develop the correct discipline, patience, and view of market in the right context.

We also have an invitation only Professional Traders room (Pro’s room), where you will be trading with fellow DTA Pro’s, helping each other with new trading strategies and setups while advancing your trading and profits at the same time.

A Strategic Approach To Profits

Our rules-based approach to trading is extremely flexible for all types of traders.  We give you a proven skill set and you choose what you are comfortable with as a trader.  In the beginning it is important to follow the patterns we highlight, to gain market aptitude.  Once your confidence increases, we will begin to make small changes to trade entries, exits, and risk management.

We perfected our winning strategies by keeping a few things in mind:

  • Trade strictly futures
  • E-mini S&P 500
  • Win more than you lose
    • Make sure your winners are bigger than your losers
  • Simplicity (clean charts, simple setups)
    • One Chart & 3 Simple Indicator
  • Stay disciplined and follow the plan
    • Goal: To be profitable everyday

It isn’t about making a million dollars every day.  The goal is be able to make money consistently every single day.  It is learning how to be reliant on yourself so you can focus on the actual movement of the market.

To be successful in this business, you truly need to understand how the market works based on Price Action and NOT Indicators or software.  By keeping a simple chart, we can immediately assess how the market is performing and profit from the potential opportunities given to us.  Our strategy uses a few indicators that help with volatility and momentum, but our main objective is to understand the market environment and adapt to its changes by reading live price.

Indicators are tools, not the answer to success. Success lies in sound judgment when trading and knowledge of why the market moves the way it does.  This understanding will keep you in good trades, reaching your profit targets, and out of bad trades that appear enticing.

After students demonstrate their ability to read the market, we can incorporate advanced or pro trades. Advanced trades are trade setups that fit the basic rules but also allow for dynamic profit targets. Pro trades are trades that do not fit the “classic rules,” but are extremely compelling and high probability.

The E-mini S&P 500 Is Still The Best Market To Day Trade

There is an average of two million contracts traded daily on the S&P 500 E-mini, making it the most traded market in futures.  This large volume creates a fluid market that is ideal to learn on, as so many active positions create numerous trade opportunities throughout the day.

Day Trading Positions

We see fluctuations in market volume seasonally, and when the volume slows we are still able to make an average of two points a day with our Congressive Trading System, a proven strategy developed to adapt our trade entry and exit rules to capitalize on opportunities available. Our students are successfully learning to trade the E-mini S&P 500 because we teach them how to understand the market and focus on one market at a time

Congressive Strategy Disposition

Congressive = Conservative + Aggressive

This concept is what we call “Congressive,” where we are conservative when the market is not moving well and aggressive when the market is trending. Sometimes we make exceptions to our profit target by reading underlying behavior; this is a skill we teach our traders to understand and take advantage of market momentum.

Trading full time is all about being able to generate consistent returns. With a 2:1 Risk vs. Reward, our students and members are able to generate money while occasionally taking losing trades. One aspect we focus on is identifying which trades appear valid, but are not compelling.

Coaching

Day trading is a community and our new pool of Master Traders are helping to take advanced/pro traders to the next level as well.

A day trading coach will help you discover what kind of trader you are based on your actions in the market. The Day Trading Academy also provides feedback and reinforcement on your trades through video analysis of all your charts.   This approach helps identify and strengthen weaknesses.

Live Weekly Trading Classes

Our live trading room is where we put all of our concepts into real time action. We always prefer to train in a live market environment to ensure that we learn the correct market expectation.

Everyone who runs the live trading classes, or is involved in mentoring, is an accomplished trader.  Our instructors have been through our training program and are now doing this for a living.

Confidence That More Than One Person Is Making Money

Imagine the difference you would feel by knowing that others are trading live with a strategy that you’re using.

The live and recorded classes result in a dramatic reduction to your personal learning curve, as you will see and hear professional traders evaluate their positions, handle themselves under pressure, and most importantly, how they handle risk management while in the trade.
