WHO IS THE TRAINING PROGRAM FOR

This training program is designed for:

  • Businesses who provide custom digital solutions to participants on capital markets (developers, testers, business analysts, etc.).
  • Capital markets participants who need to keep their people proficient in electronic trading (brokerage houses, brokerage arms of banks, investment banks or pension funds).
  • Every business unit whose staff need practical e-trading experience.
  • Any retail trader or group of individual traders who need top notch training on capital markets and electronic trading. A definite must-have for beginners.

THE OBJECTIVES (AND HOW WE MEET THEM)

  • To learn why capital markets exist, who are the participants, the roles they play and what their objectives are.
  • To understand the markets structure and discover what is tradable nowadays.
  • To learn how market data and orders flow by the help of trading systems and messaging.
  • To understand what makes an outstanding trading UX in a digital trading world.
  • To learn about the importance of psychology for traders and investors.

I’ve been trading the international capital markets since 1998. I’ve had the skin in the game and experienced a lot all these years. My U.S. Master Trader mentor has been trading them since 1957. I’ve learned a lot from him about markets and trades which happened at times when I was not even born.

I believe the best way to meet the above objectives is to show participants live examples. I challange them to practice trades or simply using trading platforms in real time during this Program. I use for this purpose live trading platforms of top U.S. brokers and trading software analysers.

THE BENEFIT$

  • Retail traders will greatly benefit from learning what to look for and how to use at best the capabilities of an e-trading platform, according to their specific trading and investing objectives.
  • The digital solutions providers will understand what their Clients’ (participants on the capital markets) needs are. Thus they will develop custom solutions that deliver unique UX to them and their end users.
  • All participants will benefit from learning from a market practioner with 18 years experience.

WHAT THEY DON’T TEACH YOU AT HARVARD

We all know what they teach you in schools. You learn to pass your exam and become a certified financial accountant or maybe you go to Harvard University. All things are clear and “make sense” in theory and they also do make sense in reality until they don’t anymore.

Reality is that most of the times markets are not driven by supply and demand but are rather manipulated. I will show it and demonstrate it to you in this program if you want to learn about it. When turbulent times of high volatility come, reality is that markets will not behave normally. You’ll need to know off-record things, what is the new “normal”, and how to take action in order to survive.

Participants across the board are impacted in such times, from the retail trader whose trading margin suddenly increases to the trading platform provider whose market data and orders flow needs to work properly under new parameters.

You will learn what you need to know about these unusual market conditions. I will teach you by giving examples from my own trading and from my mentor, which is a cumulative experience of almost 80 years of trading.

excellent course on markets. very interactive

We’re a group trading the stock markets for a few years and also developing an app for capital markets on iphones/ios.

He designed it so that it would help us on both lines. It was an excellent course on markets, very informative and interactive.

Mihai did a great job, we now feel much more safe as investors and got lots of ideas for our app develop. as well!

the course to start your market education with

I say that this is the course to start your market education with.

Trainer’s long experience in the markets is important.

I went through many tutorials on my brokers platforms but cound not find this clear sequence of info about how a broker’s platform really works. They would not explain it enough either.

Much better prepared for trading stocks & options now! Thank you!

helps us a lot in our job as designers

We’re born in Romania and that’s how we wanted to meet Mihai. We’re currently designing graphics for trading platforms for Wall Street banks.

We found this course invaluable; it tells you what you need to know about markets and beyond!

Mihai can teach you trading strategies but he also knows very well the platforms.
We benefited greatly from the latter one; it really helps us a lot in our job as designers.

Thanks, Mihai!
