Options theory – this lecture explores the essence of options, their nature. In simple language, without complex formulas, it is shown what an option is, what it is for, and how it can be used to make money.
Optional designs – there are several principles of construction of options structures, with which you can build structures of any complexity. We will analyze them in a few examples of those designs that will be used in their work. Also here you will learn how to read risk profiles, calculate profit and loss depending on the life of the entire options design.
Option Greeks – эre ratios that shows the impact of various market factors on the value of options. This area is very difficult to understand for novice traders due to mathematical explanations that are used in most sources. This lecture shows the meaning of these coefficients in simple human language. In just 20 minutes you will learn the Greeks and be able to use them in your work.
VSA method – is a prism and the concept of the market through which you will be able to see the strength and weakness of market participants. This technique makes it possible to enter the market at the best prices due to the fact that it gives an understanding of who dominates the market at the moment.
Price levels – no trading system can do without price levels. The main problem is what levels to choose for work, because there are thousands of them. In this lecture, you will learn how to build levels that are not based on ephemeral hypotheses, but on objective market information.
Technical patterns of supply and demand – graphic models, as well as technical levels, there are many, but not all of them have a real market basis. Over 10 years of work on the market, several models have been identified, which are justified in terms of supply and demand and give 70-80% advantage.
Analysis of reports COT – COT reports are reports on the positions of various categories of market participants, which give us the opportunity to assess the sentiment of those who move the market. Of all the variety of techniques for analyzing this information, we will use the easiest and most reliable way, which gives a real advantage in the market.
Seasonal trends and production cycles – most futures markets have cycles of price movements that repeat from year to year. This is due to seasonal changes in supply and demand. Understanding the seasonal trends and production cycles provides a significant advantage, and allows you to open positions in the most favorable periods during the year.
Fundamental analysis of commodity markets – medium-and long-term trends in the market are created by fundamental factors, the understanding of which largely determines the quality of decisions made. If you do not have this understanding, then your chances of profit are the same as a blind kitten trying to cross the highway. Fundamental analysis is the analysis of supply and demand and their evaluation in the future, which gives us the opportunity to accurately predict long-term trends.
Fundamental analysis of currencies – there is a significant difference between the fundamental analysis of commodity markets and the currency market. When we analyze currencies, we can not directly estimate the size of supply and demand, because the dollar can be printed, but a bag of wheat is not. But this does not mean that we cannot make a fundamental assessment. There is an algorithm that we have been building for three years, and you can learn it in just 40 minutes.
Risk management techniques – risk management is one of the main pillars on which profitable trading is built. In the selling options, its value is particularly high because of the nonlinearity of the instrument itself. Techniques that you will learn will help you not only to reduce the size of possible losses, but in some cases to bring a losing position in plus.
Portfolio management and construction – each position should be considered in the context of the portfolio, because there is a range of risks that must be avoided. Otherwise, you may incur significant losses. The effectiveness of your trading and its final result largely depends on how well your portfolio is composed.
Trading algorithm and entry points – all the previous information we need to answer simple questions - where to open a trade and how to manage it. To get answers to these questions, we need a step-by-step algorithm. In this lecture, we will build this algorithm and systematize all the knowledge that we have studied before.
