What You'll Get

The Complete Trading Course is the first book by Corey Rosenbloom (CMT), trading educator and author of the top stock market blog AfraidToTrade.com.  This book organizes years of Corey's daily stock analysis articles from AfraidToTrade.com, his training as as Certified Market Technician (CMT), and educational seminars into a focused course on price patterns, trade setups, trade strategies, trader psychology, and tactics to help execute your trades.

This book is written for anyone who wants to be or already uses technical analysis methods (i.e. focusing purely on the price) for their buying and selling decisions.  Technical analysis is much like how most businesses analyze how they are doing: how much their products are selling for (price) and how many are being sold (volume).  Thus, technical analysis starts with a chart (graph) of the stock, future, commodity, or forex you want to buy or sell, like businesses would show in a powerpoint presentation.

In The Complete Trading Course, Corey Rosenbloom takes you through

  • the very foundations of price, volume, and charts
  • all the most common technical analysis indicators to make sense of the chart data (price, volume) and buying and selling opportunities these indicators help you find
  • lessons on correctly applying analysis strategies to figure out where the stock is likely to go and how to plan your buys and sells around that information
  • trade setups to take advantage of when price patterns, indicators, and strategies provide favorable risk:reward trade opportunities
  • how to carry out your trade plan to profit from winning trades, manage your losses when trades go against you, when to take money off the table for winners and how
  • your own psychology of trading confidently and managing your emotions through the market ups and downs
  • advanced trade execution tactics to gain an edge, favorable risk to reward for the money you bet, and combining chart analysis and your goals to take advantage of opportunities, manage trades in real time, and exit trades properly and consistently like a well oiled business operation.

Instead of getting bogged down by the countless indicators and methods to begin with, Corey's approach in writing this book focuses on the concepts and practical applications. The indicators, strategies, and methods are examples of how the basics of technical analysis are used.  This allows the reader, after learning the lessons, to have the freedom to confidently explore other indicators and methods in the future instead of knowing only the examples used in the book.

Take a look at the table of contents below and you'll find lessons for both new and experienced traders.
