Lesson plan

Your Trading Setup

In the first lesson, we’ll introduce the programme, how we’re going to achieve its objectives and get clear on what is expected of you to achieve this.

We’ll go through the 10 Golden Trading Rules all new traders should follow – these act as the framework of the trading approach we’re teaching, go into the markets the course will help you trade and give you some clarity around the products you’ll likely end up using.

We’ll finish the lesson by going through brokers and how best to set yourself up to get the most out of the programme.

Set up is often neglected, with a few important choices right at the start we’re going to help you avoid some expensive headaches later on in your trading journey.

Concepts & Leverage

You can’t trade unless you have clarity on a handful of concepts and, more importantly, how they apply day in day out in trading.

We’re not going to bombard you with every trading term under the sun but in order for you to get the most out of the course, we are going take you through the ones vital to your success.

We’ll finish the lesson explaining leverage, probably the most misunderstood aspect of margin trading. You’ll finish the lesson with a really good appreciation of how leverage can work for you and how to use it at your stage of development.

Analysis & Timing   

We’re going to show you how to take a holistic view of the market by using sentiment, fundamental and technical analysis.

The trading approach we’re teaching you doesn’t rely on just one type of analysis, instead, it takes insights from all three, building up layers of evidence to find the best trade setups.

The bulk of the lesson is focused on Fundamental analysis and a key tool for traders – the Economic Calendar. We’re going to show you how to correctly interpret economic announcements for the asset class you are trading.

We’ll finish the lesson by introducing the first strategy of the course: a volatility breakout using fundamental analysis.

Trend Trading

In the fourth lesson of the course, we’re going to get into the details of technical analysis.

We’re going to look at support and resistance, trends, channels and how this links through into two strategies: the Trend Flow strategy and the Momentum Breakout strategy.

Price Action Trading

We’re going to introduce you to a range of price patterns.

These are medium-term repeatable patterns in the price action of a market you can use to find trades, set stop losses and set profit targets.

Trade Entry & Exit Confirmations

In this lesson, we’re showing you how to use candlestick patterns to identify time trade entries, exits and measure stop loss distances.

Again, we’ll take you through from theory to applicable trading strategy in a live market.  

Indicators & Money Management   

This lesson is split into three parts. First, we’re going to introduce several important technical indicators including moving averages to confirm the trend, and stochastics to find overbought and oversold markets.

Second, we’re going to spend some time on market stages. These are and how the psychological makeup of market participants changes over time and its impact on price.

The third part focuses on risk and money management. We’re going to show you how to position size relative to the risk you’re taking on a trade, using the underlying volatility of the market.

Trading Plan, Putting It All Together 

The final lesson of the course pulls everything taught so far into the Building the Evidence trading system. We’ll show you the practical application of all previous lessons in real-time and live market, including identification of key trading levels and trade setups.

We’ll help you compile your trading plan, in including rules on entries, exits and risk management.
