Further Stock Trading Education

Are you looking here because you already tried my 7 day stock training course and want to further your stock trading education?

If you went through the initial trading course you should have an understanding of topics such as IPO, dividends, technical and fundamental analysis and different types of stock broker.

Stock Market Hours

Firstly here we are going to look at the hours the stock market is open. You may already be familiar with these, but if not, be sure to check out the stock market hours page. It shows the trading hours for the US and major european exchanges.

After Hours Stock Trading

Did you know that you can trade after hours? Whilst this can be a very profitable way to trade, it does come with some additional risk factors not faced by day traders.

Automated Stock Trading

Some trading systems can be automated cutting down or even eliminating the time needed for trading. This stock trading tutorial looks at the brokers that support automated trading and how to go about programming an automated trading system.

Stock Screeners

Learning how to use a stock screener is a very important part of your stock trading education. A stock screener allows you to search for stocks based on a specific criteria that you choose. You can then choose the ones you feel are most favorable and buy them.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETF)

An Exchange Traded Fund or ETF can be bought and sold like normal stocks. However, their primary objective is tracking a particular financial instrument. ETF’s are relatively new and have become very popular in recent years. There is an ETF for just about every financial instrument, but the more popular ones track crude oil, natural gas, gold and stock indices like the Nasdaq and Dow Jones.

Short Term Trading

Most people are very familiar with the buy and hold stock strategy, but fewer people have an understanding of short term trading. This stock tutorial looks into scalping, intraday trading and swing trading. Shorter term trading has many disadvantages but does have the potential for high returns.

Stock Trading Tips

This is the last stock trading tutorial I have put together. I aim to outline the common mistakes made by new traders including falling for the scams. The tips are based on my own stock trading experiences and mistakes. I made the mistakes, so you don’t have to.

OK, I’ve read all the stock trading education pages, what next?

If you feel you have a good understanding of trading it might be time to start looking for a stock broker and funding an account with some money. Always start small because trading with real money is always different to trading a virtual account. The emotions can so easily get the better of you.
