FAQ: New Trader 101 E-Learning Course



I have fielded many questions since the announcement of New Trader 101, and while I am happy to answer email, I thought that other folks may benefit from the answers.

Q: Why did you make an e-learning course?

A: I have been asked on a daily basis if I will create a course for new traders, take part in someone else’s project, or offer individual training. I looked at all these options and decided that creating my own course would allow me to guarantee high quality and a low price.

Q: Will you EVER offer individual training?

A: I am not crazy enough to say never, but it doesn’t make a lot of sense to try and do that. There are only so many hours in the day, and I would rather devote my time to helping as many people as possible.

Q: How long is the course?

A: The course is 12 modules (plus a bonus module of actual trades) and associated worksheets. It covers Psychology, Risk Management, and Methodology, and is meant to teach the fundamentals necessary to be a successful trader.

Q: Is this a learn at your own pace kind of thing, or do I need to be logged on at a certain time?

A: This course is created for your convenience, so you can learn at your own pace, as your schedule allows. It is entirely online.

Q: Is it a month to month subscription? And how much does it cost?

A: It is not a monthly subscription, rather It is a yearly subscription of $49 per year (+VAT in EU) for the Student version, and $69 per year(+VAT in EU) for the Pro version. It does not auto renew. This is introductory pricing.

Q: What is the difference between the Student and the Pro version?

A: The Student version is the course, limited access to the forums, and standard (24 hour turnaround) support. The Pro version is the course, access to exclusive forums and fantastic support.

Q: Where can I learn more about the course?
