Why Trading?

Trading offers the opportunity to leverage your time and money.

  • We trade for around 2 hours a day. This means our work week is 10 hours

  • Because trading can be done outside of normal business hours it provides the opportunity to work as full time job

  • Full-time traders, or those who do trading as a business enjoy the flexibility of time. There are many session times available to trade.

Day Trading is the act of buying and selling an asset on a financial market. Unlike longer forms of trading, Day Trading involves entering and exiting trades within the same trading day. One of the major benefits of doing this is avoiding overnight risk.
Learn how to Day Trade and take advantage of the markets.
Futures are a trading product that allows traders to buy and sell contracts that have a value of an underlying asset. The reason why we trade the futures markets over any other form of trading is that it is heavily regulated and we can trade directly to the exchange. This means that we do not need a broker and that we trade the true price rather than a manipulated one.

Traders speculate on price changes for a given asset within a given market.

Seeking an income stream through trading provides flexible working hours and can be done remotely if you have a laptop, trading platform, and internet connection.

The key benefit to learning to trade with an academy is the strong support system. We have a strong focus on creating confident and competent traders and do our best to set you up for success.

Trading Futures allows you to start day trading with a smaller account compared to share trading. The bare minimum in order to trade the micro markets is $500. The amount that you choose to trade should reflect your risk profile and objectives.

Our day trading academy courses are for complete beginners to intermediates with the goal to become advanced traders. Our courses are suitable for any level, whether you have traded before or not.
