About the Stock Trading Course:

The stock market is very different from any other market you have traded before, the participants trade differently in it, the volatility is higher, breaking news impact stocks furiously but because of this there is room for incredible profits.

 

I already know how to trade forex, do I really need to learn how to trade the stock market?

Yes, even though we use the same technical tools in any market we trade we still need to understand what dries price in any instrument we analyze. Trading stocks is very different to trading FX. Because the foreign exchange market is traded over the counter and it´s decentralized is very hard to get accurate level II data and retail traders are left to trade only off the charts.

Equities is a whole different game. Due to the fact that the market is centralized it´s easy to get feed from the exchanges to see where the big orders are placed, how the orders are flowing and reading the tape to get a sense of direction.

You can still just trade equities off the charts but don´t you want to have an edge before getting in the market?

Are there any prerequisites for the course?

This course was designed so that the beginner trader would understand where to start and how to move forward, nevertheless, it´s important to have a technical background and an idea of how the financial markets operate.

If you don´t have any technical background you can always jump to our technical course when you feel that you don´t follow the train thought of the lessons. It´s easy to move back and forward on the investoo.com library.

 

I´m an aspiring forex trader, but I´m also interested in stocks. Should I give up forex and focus on equities alone?

Definitely not. This course is intended for you to diversify your portfolio not to close shop where you already are profitable. Remember all the hard work you put to get where you are in the foreign exchange market (or any other market for that matter); you can´t just leave all that behind for thoughts of something better right?

Diversification is key when it comes to profiting from the markets and you should be able to jump from the EUR/USD chart to the $TSLA chart to place a trade with no problem at all.

At investoo.com we believe that traders should have all the necessary tools to succeed and this is the main reason the stock trading course is necessary for you to be able to diversify your trading.

How long is it going to take me to be a profitable equities trader?

That´s a good question and it usually depends and varies from trader to trader. If you have a lot of experience in the markets and are already a profitable trader it should take you no time to adjust and be profitable trading stocks. If you are a beginner it will take a little longer but because this course is so well thought you will eventually get there.

Are there any special indicators taught on this course that only apply to stocks?

No. As we said before we use the same technical tools in every market we trade. The difference is that we don´t use them all at once. Many stock courses out there preach to have the ultimate indicator for equities but everybody has it it´s called price and order flow.

In this course you will learn how to read the level II, how to place trades with profitable strategies and how to choose from various instruments; from stocks to ETFs.

Is this course only for daytraders?

Absolutely not. In this course you will learn not only to trade and profit from volume and momentum but also how to build a stock portfolio, how to read financial performance ratios, financial health ratios and to determine the stock´s real price.

What to do after I finished the course?

Well it´s really up to you but you should backtest your strategy, build your account and then think of moving forward with the futures course or even the option course.
