So, what’s actually in this program? It’s defined visually below:
As you can see, the program is in the shape of a Pyramid. We’re going to work on the essentials first before we build it up one layer or “module” at a time, with the eventual goal being that you become a Master Trader.
Let’s briefly discuss each module:
ETF Essentials for Trading Success – this module includes an introduction to Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), how they work, and the advantages to trading ETFs over other markets and/or mutual funds. ETFs can be broken down into 6 major categories and different asset classes. I have incorporated ETF Portfolio Watch Lists for different asset classes of ETFs including the most popular and liquid ETFs.
Principles of Charting Mastery – this module covers the first 2 principles of the 4 Key Market Foundation Principles for Trading Mastery. First, I discuss the principles on which the Market Flow Analysis Method (MFAM) is built and how predictable the markets truly can be. Next, I discuss the concepts of Support and Resistance and give tips on how to identify and use these levels properly just as professional traders do.
Principles of Charting Mastery – this module includes the remaining 2 principles of the 4 Key Market Foundation Principles for Trading Mastery. I introduce you to Fibonacci Retracement
Levels and Fibonacci Retracement Confluence and how they’re used
in conjunction with the MFAM for entering on a pullback in a defined trend. I then introduce you to the Keltner Channel Bands and how I use them to identify support and resistance in a trend. I then discuss Mid-Keltner penetrations through the 79 Simple and 89 Exponential
Moving Averages, which I use to define longer-term support and resistance. I also outline the specific criteria that I look for to identify a change of trend. Finally I briefly discuss two other Moving Averages that are commonly used by institutional and many “at home” retail traders alike.
Powerful Price Patterns & Volume – this module covers the
Powerful Price Patterns that I use which are very reliable and predictable when trading at logical support and resistance in a defined trend. I go over where to look for these price patterns in a defined trend as well as the criteria for entering, exiting, and managing these trade set-ups. I then discuss some very important volume concepts that you need to understand to identify on your charts what the “smart money” is doing.
High Probability TREND Entries – in this module I go over the entry criteria that I use for trading with the trend. I briefly outline the criteria for identifying a change in trend and then discuss my trade setups: the Initial Trend Entry, Successive Trend Entries, and how to enter aggressively or conservatively following the formation of
Extreme Running Patterns. I have found that trading is not only less stressful, but also much more rewarding and profitable simply sticking to trading in the direction of the trend.
The Keys to Trading Success I: Trade Management – there are three parts to Trade Management. In this module I will go over specifically where to place your Initial Stop Loss after entering the market, when and where to move your Stop up/down so as to reduce risk, and where to take profits as the market makes money available to you. I will show you the best and most reliable ways to manage your trades.
The Keys to Trading Success II: Trade Sizing – the most critical aspect of your trading plan is Money Management. I will show you how to best use the capital available to you in the most effective manner with the Trade Sizing Strategy that I use. I have also included a Trade Sizing Calculator that you may download and use to help you determine your position size based on your trade setups.
Profiting from Tops & Bottoms – in this module I will teach you a few powerful strategies for recognizing, trading, and profiting from tops and bottoms using a few powerful reversal chart patterns along with a few trading principles you have already learned in previous training modules. This module is geared more towards the advanced trader.
Day in the Life of an ETF Trader – in this module I provide you with 4 steps to set up to help automate your trading. First and foremost, you have to set up your charts, I have included here exactly what needs to be on your charts. Once your charts are set up, create your own personal portfolio watch list. On your symbol grid, set aside some space to list all of the ETFs that are currently setting up and some space where you can manage a list of your LIVE trades. Successful traders are organized.
Daily Income: Day Trading ETFs – this module is for those of you who have an extra hour or two a day and wish to day trade for daily income. Everything that you have learned in previous training modules applies to day trading on the smaller intra – day time frames.
In this module, I discuss how I view and treat the smaller time frame intraday charts when the market opens each day and show you that all of the charting principles and trading strategies that you have already learned up to this point may be applied and implemented on the smaller intraday time frames. A chart is a chart is a chart!
The YOU Assessment: Maximizing Your Potential – trading is 70 to 80% emotional and psychological, therefore, you truly need to understand yourself. In this module, I go through Six ‘YOU Questions’ that YOU need to answer in order to have a better understanding of what markets you should be trading and what time frames are best suited to you and your personality.
ETF Trading Mastery Framework – By the time you reach this module, you have already learned everything you need to know to be a consistently successful ETF trader. This module may be used as a “Quick-Reference Guide” for implementing and executing the trading strategies taught in this course.
