Welcome to Day Trading Academy where people from all over the world come for education on day trading. At the core of our values is the idea that we are strong alone, but stronger together. We consider everyone in Day Trading Academy to be family, and continue to rely on each other to become better traders everyday. Day trading for us is not a job or profession, but a way of life.
We day trade for freedom. What are you doing to achieve yours?
Day Trading Academy is a group of traders that develop things together. Too often in this industry there are endless stories of secrets and deceit. If you are an experienced trader you may have been a victim of this sad practice. We consider ourselves to be an open source project where we continue to adapt to the ever changing market dynamics.

The Beginning Of Day Trading Academy
Our Founder Marcello Arrambide, started Day Trading Academy out of the demand from other traders. An industry veteran spanning nearly 17 years of experience in the markets, Marcello has been part of many day trading companies in his career.
He decided to leave the last company he was with due to their unethical behavior. He wanted to see the world and began day trading and traveling. He has been to over 110 countries, and has lived in 12 countries spanning 5 continents. He remembers very clearly the sacrifices he had to make in order to learn how to day trade and obtain his freedom. Taking out an incredible $25,000 to start learning, he lost that in a month buying software programs and day trading indicators that he didn’t need. This is a reminder that trading is risky and you can lose a lot of money trading. We need to take this as a serious business and not just as a hobby or “part time affair”.
He decided that he wasn’t going to be part of a company that wasn’t really going to teach people how to trade.
This is a story that is all too common in the industry. Companies try to sell “software” and “day trading indicators” that people never need to truly learn how to trade. In order to remain consistent in the markets one has to learn how to read the market with good structure to adapt to changing market dynamics. He wanted to teach people how to day trade so they could do it on their own, and achieve true freedom in their lives.
While living in Ethiopia, traders from the previous company he was with started to find his unique experiences traveling on WanderingTrader.com.
He made the sacrifice to travel less and give up this part of his freedom and trading to be able to teach others how to trade. He felt responsible for these traders as they were people that spent thousands of dollars on training.
They never actually received the training they were promised by the previous company.
Instead of charging these students more money, he opted to allow everyone to decide how much they wanted to pay. This decision was on the sole premise that it wasn’t about the money. It’s truly teaching traders to actually learn how to read the markets, understand them, and be able to day trade on their own. The financial commitment was only to ensure that they were serious about learning.

Growing and Creating Day Trading Army
Before long, word spread that Marcello was teaching and the program grew to unimaginable levels. The Congressive Trading Strategy used by all the students at Day Trading Academy was built to be simple and adaptable.
The importance was placed on learning how to read the market and being able to adjust to it. Marcello also took into account that everyone is different and is going to trade based on different comfort zones, risk tolerances, and speeds of development. The Learning How To Trade Project was created to perfect the education process.
Day Trading Academy now has a full fledged training program for brand new traders, advanced traders, or just traders that are looking for some consistency.
As we are updating this page we are in our day trading center in Colombia.
DTA Training Program and Congressive Trading System
What good is a system if you have to rely on a company in order to use it? We don’t sell any software that you have to rely on or that you have to use. Our goal is to be able to teach you how to read the markets. Our Congressive Trading System allows traders to be flexible on how they want to trade. By building discipline and psychology into the training program, it ensures traders are learning the right behaviors.
Our training program lasts a minimum of three months to ensure that every trader has enough time to grasp the system. We always want to make sure that every single person is a good fit for the program. We want to make sure that we are going to be teaching people who are serious about trading.
Once someone becomes a member of the program we consider them family as we mentioned before DTA is a family, not a day trading company.
The Curriculum and Trading System
Trying to learn how to day trade is hard enough, so we aimed to make everything as simple as possible. Instead of having a million different indicators and having our charts look like a rainbow, we make everything as simple as possible. We trade with a limited number of indicators and only trade off one chart. We base our analysis off price action, instead of indicators.
The curriculum is split into four sections; beginner, intermediate, advanced, and pro. We take beginners from not knowing anything about day trading to understanding how markets work and what price action is. We can also train experienced traders that are still looking for better consistency, teach them concepts they may have otherwise not known about. We go from simple concepts with technical analysis like support and resistance areas, trend lines, and price action to more advanced concepts like trading psychology, emotional intelligence.
The first part of the curriculum is 19 chapters long. The intermediate section is where one learns how to maximize risk management, and even learning when not to take trades and adjusting, as well as maximizing profit targets.
Live and Review Classes
We hold classes two days a week to cover important topics and watch the market live together. Remember that we aren’t trading advisors we simply teach how the Congressive system works. We use this time to reinforce important concepts and also introduce new ideas and solidify them. We talk about the live market as they happen and make sure to assist traders in identifying market structure and price action, as well as micro and macro momentum.
After our live classes we have review classes where we cover any questions you may have. Our review classes last anywhere between an hour, to upwards of three hours. We keep an open forum to discuss any topics that our traders want covered. After all, it is about helping you become consistent, and not continue to review the same information over and over again.

In-depth Video Library
We record all of our live classes, review classes, and daily market recaps which are then uploaded into our video library. We do this on purpose to ensure that you can still learn if you have a full time job or go to school full time. We also have years of market recaps and videos available for review to allow all of our students to learn to trade on their own time, and at their own pace.
Future of Day Trading Academy
We are starting day trading centers around the world, with our first being in Colombia and the second most likely in Brazil. We also are making the centers available to everyone in our training program. We look forward to creating a unique group of tight knit traders around the world.
