At the end of this course, students will be able to…
Use technical indicators to identify investment opportunities – you’ll be able to make independent decisions as to when to buy and when to sell.
We even review how to enter basic options trades, using calls and puts, for those seeking greater leverage.
Who should take this course? Who should not?
If you have a TSP, 401K, IRA, or any other stock benefit package, this is where you should start.
What will students need to know or do before starting this course?
Practice trading and investing. When practicing, never use real money. We’ll set you up with virtual trading account(s).
The market has thousands of stocks from which to choose, and there are hundreds of ETFs representing various assets globally. So you read all the news. You check the stock quotes daily, hoping to make that big return, right? But is it actually possible to become an expert on every company? No way.
Investing in the stock market requires that you are aware of certain strategies that are applicable to every market and every sector. So prepare yourself for stock market trading, using methods that don’t require expertise in one.
Commodities trading, Forex trading, real estate trading, stock market share trading, market investing… all of these require stock market analysis skills and knowledge. Even for people who enjoy the high-risk penny stock investing… You’ve still got to have strategies that work across all the markets, simply because there’s no way to assess all markets and sectors and become an expert in them.
