Here’s a fact that almost no school in the industry will tell you: 93% of traders will lose their money. The primary reason for this is they do not get educated. If you try and trade AAPL and you think they are a great company, most likely when you start to trade it, the stock price will go up and down rapidly and you’ll have to sell for a loss. The funny part is you most likely weren’t wrong about the stock. A few days later it will probably move in your favor, but as a day trader who is trading a large number of shares, you do not have the luxury of waiting. In order to become a proficient trader, and ultimately an elite trader, there are many facets of trading that you are going to have to master:.
While classroom training and support from the ATC insiders trading room provides the support needed to learn to trade, ultimately it is the time you spend trading and analyzing your own trades that makes the difference in how far and how fast you progress. In order to advance, each student has their own set of weaknesses that they must overcome, and these differ dramatically from person to person. ATC provides one-on-one coaching to help students address these individual weaknesses and gaps in understanding to allow them to become proficient traders..
There are a lot of traders that are right on the brink of success but just need that one-on-one time to take them to profitability. As well, there are traders that are very good and the same one-on-one time can take them to profits they would never believe. No matter what, you need a mentor. It doesn’t matter if you just started, or you’re a hedge fund manager. At the end of the day, a one-on-one setting or a small setting will always benefit you exponentially more than a large group. Working directly with a student gives us the opportunity to discover and tweak the individual things that are holding that student back. If you cannot overcome these weaknesses, there are certainly other traders – some of them will certainly be the senior traders in the ATC trading room, that will take your money. We don’t believe you should teach someone something that you cannot do yourself. Based on that, We certainly know how to trade. What’s important is can our students trade? You should not select a mentor based upon what the instructors say about their coaching. It sounds contradictory, but the opinions of the students being taught are much more important. The important question isn’t if I can trade, it’s whether or not I can teach someone else..
