Learn From Our Students’ Top 3 Most Frequently Asked Questions

At Trading College, we pride ourselves on the solid community we’ve created amongst our clients and staff. This strong bond is just one of the reasons hundreds of former students decide to stay part of the Trading College family long after their course has ended.

And one of the best parts of our community? The sharing of knowledge.

The Live Trading Room at Trading College is a safe space where traders at all stages of their journey with us are comfortable asking questions to experienced traders and Coaches.

Aren’t questions brilliant? We love questions at Trading College.

We love them because we know that asking questions isn’t only useful to the person asking, but the answers are invaluable to everybody listening live or watching our sessions on demand. And so, as part of that ethos of asking and learning, I want to tell you about the top three most frequently asked questions that I see in our community.

1. What is the best Trading College strategy for a complete beginner?
This is a frequent question in our Beginner’s Bootcamp and Q&A Sessions. And one that has several answers!

The simple answer to this question…
Any of our strategies!

At Trading College, we pride ourselves on having made our trading strategies simple to understand, easy to put into practice, and tradable for both Swing and Day Traders.

But if I had to narrow it down to one…

Our flagship strategy, the Pro-Trading System (PTS), is core to our understanding of the charts
and is a system we use repeatedly.

If you are at the beginning of your trading journey and don’t quite know where to start, there is no
better place than with the Pro-Trading System.

2. How many trades should I take?
At Trading College we are fanatical about several things.

Making profit, analysing charts, trading to improve our lifestyle…

But something just as important as all these is Risk Management.

(For anyone who doesn’t know, Risk Management are the processes and rules that a trader puts in place to limit their losses whilst maximising their profits). Managing risk isn’t just about making sure your Stop Loss is correct. It also involves ensuring you
are taking to correct several trades.

But how do you decide how many trades to take?

There are several ways traders decide what is best for them.

Here are some examples:
• Hit your Profit Target for the given period
• Reached your maximum loss for the period
• Feel yourself beginning to over-analyse trades
• Feel yourself starting to lose focus

Do any of these apply to you?

3. What is your Day Trading and Swing Trading set-up?
Many of our most frequently asked questions are about the trading styles of the Coaching Team.

And of course, we welcome these questions with open arms!

The Coaching Team have proven themselves to be successful and profitable traders and the reason they teach at Trading College is to share this knowledge with others.

And just as we talked about the simplicity of trading our strategies in the questions above, what I look for in my trading setups couldn’t be simpler.

It’s all about Momentum.

Trading with Momentum means that I am looking for powerful moves in the market.

Moves that are going to give me brilliant opportunities to make money.

Let me break it down for you:

Day Trading:

I only want to trade markets that have Momentum to move in the direction of the overall bias. Every morning, I narrow down my list of markets to 4 or 5 markets. Once I have this selection, I wait and watch for our trading strategies to set up and enter into these moves.

Swing Trading:

When Swing Trading I look for the same setups as when I’m Day Trading. The only difference is the timeframes. I look to my Monthly Charts for bias and then wait on the Daily and Weekly Charts for high probability entries into these big Momentum moves.

Couldn’t be simpler!
