1. The Opening Bell
When studying any subject matter, it is first necessary to ask the questions of "who", "what", "when", "where" and "why". In our introductory lesson, we will plan our educational journey while learning the basics of what we need to know to become profitable traders.
2. Leverage, Margin & all the Jargon
In lesson 2, we will learn to talk like trading professionals. Whether its running with bulls or winners, we need to know the terms used in the trading world, to both trade effectively and get to the point. You will learn all the key terms and concepts that you need to begin in the world of trading.
3. Let the Trading Begin
Text books will only get you so far and you will reach a point where there is no better way to learn than â€œto doâ€. In this lesson, we will show you how to navigate your very own demo trading platform and to start practicing with no risk immediately. This is where your live dynamic really kicks in and makes for a fun and educational experience.
4. Candlesticks - Shedding Light on Opportunities
In order find opportunities we need an efficient way of measuring price - right? Well, charts allow us to do just that. As technical traders, we use Japanese Candlesticks, a very simple and effective style of charting. This lesson will introduce you to price action, reading candlestick charts, doji, engulfing pattern formations, counter retail trading and many other tools you will need to learn to trade successfully.

Expanding upon lesson 3, you will learn to develop your technical skills like, finding and utilizing channels and trend trading techniques; highlighting breakouts, support and resistance, with counter retail strategic entry and exit techniques for each trade made. This is very much where the â€˜how toâ€™ begins.

This lesson brings together all the previous Technical Analysis lessons, focusing on methods of finding Counter Retail Trading opportunities - our speciality. This includes an examination of moving averages, simple & exponential; all focused on attempting to find that confirmation we need to trade profitably. This lesson is not to be missed.
7. Psychology of Real World Trading
Often overlooked in other trading courses, we do not ignore the importance of a good mental state that is required to trade successfully. Real life explanations and examples of the difficulties which real traders face each day are discussed. Practical steps are illustrated to reduce the psychological difficulties faced by real traders and how you will mitigate those using our own in-house developed software. This is when everything really comes together.
8. Return on Investment & Protecting Your Capital
Trading, like all other forms of investing, carries risk. It is through that very risk that profits may flow. An understanding of the interconnected and inseparable nature of risk and return is fundamental to profitable trading. Making money is one thing, keeping it is another.
SUCCESS STORIES (2895)
What a positive surprise this course proved to be! The guys at Shaw Academy are extremely professional in their approach and their understanding of risk management and analysis was a real eye-opener for me. This course taught me more about investor psychology, risk management and a disciplined investing mindset than anything else I had come across in all the years I had bought and sold in the share market. I quickly realised just how thorough and thoughtful the Shaw Academy approach to trading was, and having completed this course there was never any doubt that I would follow it up with the Ultimate Traders Course.
The Academy FT Foundation course was far superior to the other providers. The content was delivered well and done in an interactive style, this was of huge benefit as it allows questions which means full understanding. I was genuinely surprised at the amount of support time that was put in from Shaw Academy. They really do care that everyone understands what they teach.... It is a good sign when you look forward to the days the course is taking place!
I loved this course! I took it because I was completely ignorant about finance and financial terms and wanted to learn more. I was so impressed with the teaching style â€“ very down-to-earth with an honest, open approach. The content was outstanding â€“ far better than I ever expected, and the best part was that you could go back and re-listen to lectures, which is better that sitting in a classroom and getting only one crack at it. When I emailed my questions, I got speedy responses despite the 7-hour time difference.
