“Ahead of the Charts Trading” was founded by Richard Lepis for one reason: to teach students to trade the markets the way it has been done since 1792. Our ultimate goal is to give all students the tools and information necessary to not only succeed in their trading goals, but also take their skills to an elite level. The trading industry’s failure rate is directly related to the lack of knowledge of how things really work and the techniques that are required to successfully day trade the market. ATC is determined to make sure every one of their students learns these methods and are taught how to apply them.
“Without specific, clear, and tested rules, speculators do not have any real chance of success.”
You have arrived at this website because you are thinking about a career in day trading. At ATC we want you to have the opportunity to make an informed decision. You need to be educated. What sets ATC apart from the other trading schools is that our trainers will teach you what the rest of the industry does not want you to know. You must be taught how to recognize and trade with “Smart Money”. We can assure you that the learning curve is steep, and you are going to have to work hard. In today’s volatile market we often see a 200-point drop in the DJIA one day and a 300-point gain the next. While this causes great concern for traders whose holdings are only in long-term positions, the reasons for pursuing a day trading career become pretty obvious. Who wouldn’t want to consider it?
Ahead of the Charts Trading (ATC) is being established to provide a unique environment where traders can receive quality services and education to become not just competent traders, but move on to become elite traders, particularly for those that are willing to work hard and invest their time in this career. Unlike so many of the trading institutions, our instructors are highly-trained trading professionals in the ATC methodology who trade for a living and also view teaching as a way to create a more competent trading workforce. When our instructor's trade lives during a training exercise, you will never see the word “demo” on one of their accounts
Beginning in Pre-Market, traders work together on a daily basis, with ATC instructors in a live trading environment that promotes teamwork and collaborative learning. ATC offers a full suite of day trading courses (under development) and individual coaching services to support novice and intermediate traders in getting to the senior level where they have sufficient skills needed to make trading their primary source of income. Training curriculum will also be offered to take students to the highest level as they are able to demonstrate sufficient trading expertise to advance. Access to the live trading room and trading education is fee paid services, but unlike so many other trading schools, critical lessons will not be left out of the curriculum. ATC’s ultimate goal is to create a group of elite traders that can work together for the benefit of all.
If you want to learn how to day trade Rich Lepis is the person with the right knowledge, techniques, and guide lines to make anyone a profitable trader.
I started trading long term a few years ago however over time I never kept up with it. After a few years, I was finally at a place where I wanted to get back into trading. My best friend had been with Rich for a while and told me I should start my process by first attending classes with Rich. So I decided to start with his chat room and test the waters. After a few weeks in the chat room, it was more than clear that he knew what he was doing and I needed training specifically from Rich.
With a little hesitation I finally decided to have Rich give me some private coaching. Those lessons created a framework on how to successfully day trade. I don’t think without his teaching I could have advanced so quickly without years self-learning and losses.
If there had only one thing I did right in 2016 that would be I joined ATC right in the year end. From Rich and his classes, I have not just learned how to read tape, how to understand trading from a completely new perspective, I also have changed the way I deal with emotions and my attitude towards every aspect in life. Rich has transformed me in only a few months. I have told all my trading friends: I don't think that you can find a better tape reading teacher rather than Rich in the whole trading world.
Welcome to Ahead of the Charts (ATC)! This is the only place where you will truly learn the correct way to “read the tape” and see what the smart money traders are planning so you can follow them into the trade and “ride the wave.” Most people believe day trading is about scalping for .05 to .10 cents. The ATC technique will teach you to consistently find trades that move .50 cents to $1. This consistency will give you the confidence to increase your share size and build your profits.
Consider yourself lucky to have found ATC and be able to have Rich teach you the right way to trade. I am still amazed at how Rich can tell us what a stock is going to do before it happens. It is almost like he is the man behind the curtain controlling the markets. We are lucky to have him share this guidance and give us the insight to view things from his eyes allowing us to become independent successful traders on our own. It takes time and patience, but follow and practice the strategy that Rich will teach you and you will certainly find yourself able to become a consistent profitable trader.
I learned day trading for one and half years from different mentors so called "professional" and struggled since. So, I really don't have much confidence towards those online courses. Until one of my trader friend referred Rich to me, after I joined his course, the way he teach and detail of his strategy really get my mind straighten out and understand how to trade like market makers.
As the name of his school "Ahead of the Charts", his courses are designed to help us to understand how this market will playout in a high % based on the rules he developed. With Rich's effort, I got my first 2 weeks winning spree ever after I learned from his strategy and other day trading skills. As a mentor, he is really patient with his students and willing to help out with his best effort. I hope everyone who understand the concept "learning before earning" in trading business, should looking into Ahead of the Charts."
I have come from a successful business background and the early hard work awarded me the time to start my new endeavor into what what is widely considered one of the hardest to accomplish on a successful basis which is Day Trading. I started with no prior experience just the willingness to work hard, smart and learn about 4 years ago in late 2014 and my first year was so inglorious to say the least i was ready to accept defeat until Rich Lepis who at the time was a senior advisor noticed my ability but clear hindrances (funny part was he had never seen me face time face yet new through a few brief conversations).
Since that time i can tell you he has helped me through his unmatched trading abilities, meticulous preparation, teaching, courses and continual encouragement to put me on path to both enjoying my day trading and also becoming a consistently profitable trader. I owe Rich a lot in this journey and you wont find anyone who not only has this level of abilities but who loves teaching and making his students successful and takes that personally. I consider myself one of the lucky few to be under his guidance.
ATC is the best if you want to learn about trading and the markets. I had read many books and taken courses before and none of them can even compare to what you get from ATC. Everybody in the chat is so helpful and truly wants to see you succeed.
This isn’t easy and requires a lot of work but Rich, David and all the vets are always answering my question and provide a ton of help along the way.
I am not where i want to be yet but I am way more confident in my trading after taking classes and being in the chat for just a few months.
I would 100% recommend ATC. Not only is the education amazing, the support and encouragement you get from the group is unbelievable. This is a skill that requires a ton of work and there will be times when you will need some support to keep going. ATC will be there for you.
thanks for teaching the keys to the kingdom @Rich Lepis
