Short-Term Trading: Preparation, Process, Strategies, & Mindset*

July 22, 2018, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Focus: FUTURES

The lure of short-term trading--no stress with overnight positions, minimal risk in terms of exposure to long-term events, no worries about long-term analysis or where the market will be a month from now, trade when you want...it sounds seductively enticing, yet only a small percentage of traders are actually able to make a REAL living short-term trading. Unfortunately, this holds true as well for people who have been trading in the markets for many years.

Short-term trading should be seen as a set of arbitrage opportunities, specific strategies, or plays. Time of day functions are important, as well as creating structure to chunk data. Preparation needs to be done in a consistent fashion, but most critical is the trader's process that allows the day to unfold with minimal anxiety. Trading can then be FUN and it is even more fun when the trader has confidence that he or she can make money.

In this Master Class, top pro traders Linda Raschke and Damon Pavlatos will give you a step-by-step process that can make trading fun...how to start your day, what to look for, how to decrease unforced errors, specific plays to capitalize on in both stocks and futures, a total procedural template you can modify to make your own. Combine short-term "arbitrage" plays with a systematic process and you have all the ingredients to make an actual living!

Finding "A-Trades" and Managing Them (Part 1)*

July 22, 2018, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Focus: STRATEGIES

Every private trader has to handle two tasks. First, you need to analyze markets to find opportunities. Next, you need to enter, manage, and exit trades. These jobs demand different skills, which is why trading firms assign them to different people. Companies split these tasks between analysts and traders--but you have to perform both jobs. Most traders mix them up, with poor results.

Analysis and planning are best done in the quiet time, when markets are closed. After the opening bell, your full attention must switch to getting the best executions and managing open trades. The two sessions of this class will teach you how to organize your analysis and trading for success, with plenty of real-time examples.

In the first session, on Sunday afternoon, Dr. Alexander Elder will show you how to scan and find attractive opportunities. You will learn to define your "A-Trades"--set-ups with the highest promises of success. Different traders prefer different patterns, and Dr. Elder will show you his "A-Trades" and help you develop your own. The afternoon session will conclude with selecting a short list of trading candidates and preparing a trade plan for each.

The second session, on Monday morning, will take place in front of a live screen. That's when "the rubber hits the asphalt," as trade plans crafted during the previous afternoon get executed. We anticipate that you'll see trades being made, managed, and recorded for a review and analysis. There is a time to think and a time to act--and in this class you'll learn to keep these tasks separate and perform well in both.

This class will be taught by Dr. Alexander Elder, an active trader and the author of the world bestseller The New Trading for a Living (translated into 16 languages). Educated as a psychiatrist, he became a professional trader, and is widely recognized as one of the finest teachers of the craft. He is also the founder of SpikeTrade, an online community of traders.

*SAVE $100-$598 per person if purchased by July 2 (includes both sessions), $698 per person if purchased after July 2. Parts 1 & 2 of Dr. Elder's Master Class must be purchased together; they will not be sold separately. Includes refreshments.
