Video length: 49 Minutes
In this Video, Anton Kreil, Managing Partner of the Institute of Trading and Portfolio Management, debunks with real statistics the myth of Trading for Income that is so aggressively pushed by Charlatan Trading Educators who want you to believe that obtaining a regular income from Trading is possible, so they get paid an income by you as one of their students. Anton then goes on to show you the real definitions and methods of how you obtain a regular income from Financial Markets through Dividends and Distributions and how to structure several Investment and Trading Books at the same time, so your downside in Financial Markets becomes very close to Zero and your upside becomes unlimited over longer time frames. Anton also shows you how to achieve this in Global Tax Efficient Structures that work for all nationalities including U.S. Citizens who by law must pay U.S. taxes whereever they “earn” Income in the World. The result is a method and approach to “trading for Income” that has been tried and tested by High Net Worth individuals over many decades, that is cost effective and immediately applicable for even novice Investors and Traders on a global basis.
15.Tristan Edwards – Technical Analysis – What, Why, When?
Video length: 31 Minutes
In this Video, Senior Trading Mentor Tristan Edwards, who is a qualified Chartered Market Technician (CMT) shows you how to use Technical Analysis to your advantage as a Trader. Contrary to popular belief in the global Retail Trading Community, Technical Analysis is not used by Professional Traders as a “Majority” solution to Trading. In the vast majority of Professional Trader Systematic Processes when trading Financial Markets, Fundamentals are used in the Majority and Technical and Price Action indicators in the Minority. This however does not mean that Technicals do not have a place in an overall Systematic Process and are not useful. They are useful and they do have a specific purpose. Tristan begins by showing you their true purpose and true uses, and then shows which Technical and Price Action Indicators are used by Professional Traders most often, why they are used and how they are used by Professional Traders. Tristan also shows you in this Video his own personal biases when constructing Charts and which Indicators he personally finds the most useful and how he tailors them to his advantage.
