From the Past to the Future--An Interactive Trading Class*

July 22, 2019, 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm


This class with a pro trader and world-famous teacher of traders, Dr. Alexander Elder, will address all the essential points that every trader needs to handle:

Psychology: discipline is a key factor in your success or failure. Discover the best tool for developing discipline.

Technical analysis: learn to select a small number of indicators to track crowd behavior, follow trends and anticipate reversals.

Two trading systems: one for trading trends, the other for trend reversals. You will learn both, and your choice will depend on two factors: the current phase of the market and your personal style.

It's psychology again: some people's minds are better suited for trading trends while others for trading reversals. Dr Elder will show you examples of both, using charts from his own trade journal.

Risk control: how to manage risk for survival and success—in every single trade and in your account as a whole.

Stops and trade sizing: you will receive a spreadsheet that will let you find logical answers to these two key questions in every trade.

Profit targets: the power word in trading is "enough"—and here you'll find what's enough for any trade. Learn to protect profits and not allow them to turn into losses by waiting too long.

This class will focus on decision-making in current markets. Rather than dwell on PowerPoints showing the past, Dr. Elder will use trading software and current data to illustrate all the key points and answer questions. You are welcome to ask about specific stocks, futures, and currencies. Imagine how useful it will be to see how a professional trader plans his trades in front of you.

To Really Compete in the Market--Learn to Trade with Robots*

July 23, 2019, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Focus: FOREX

Automation is all around us, yet most retail traders still hunt and peck on their keyboard like it's 1999. Meanwhile, more than 70% of all trading across all markets—equities, bonds, and forex is fully automated. Little wonder retail traders feel like the game is stacked against them. But no more. Robot trading is now widely available to retail traders in both forex and futures markets and Boris Schlossberg, founder of BKForex.com, will show you how easy, simple and effective it is to trade with robots.

You don't need to know how to program.

You don't need to know how to run a network.

You don't even need to know much about computers. In fact, if you can use Microsoft Office, you can run automated trading strategies in a variety of markets.

In this, four-hour action-packed course you will learn:

  • The key trading platform for forex and futures automated trading
  • The single biggest reason why robots beat human beings every time
  • Two powerful automated strategies that you can put to work right away on both forex and futures markets

Please join CNBC contributor Boris Schlossberg on your journey to becoming a 21st-century trader.

Option Strategies and Techniques That Really Work*

July 23, 2019, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Some option strategies are so complicated that they don't really work in practice. In this session, Larry McMillan, editor and publisher of The Options Strategist will show you option strategies that DO work. Ones that have been making money consistently for some time, and ones geared to make money in a particular environment—such as a low-volatility environment, for example.

Strategies which will be encompassed in this Master Class:

  • Speculative strategies: use of put-call ratios; use of predictive tools, including seasonal patterns; option-based indicators
  • Quasi-arbitrage strategies based on relative interpretation ofoption volume and market action; summary of DVA recommendations
  • Non-directional strategies: the concept of expected return; selling options; neutral straddle buying, including hedged strategies using $VIX and $SPX derivatives in the same position; event-driven strategies based on earnings or FDA-related occurrences
  • Finally, the session will also stress strategies to avoid, or at least to be used with caution: bull and bear spreads, for example, which are often used too frequently.

Attendees will receive trial subscriptions to our newsletters.
