This course is designed to teach the basics of investing in the stock market. Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are discussed and contrasted to mutual funds as alternative vehicles for stock market investing. A significant portion of this course is devoted to risk management. Stock market investing should not keep you up at night - what happened to many investors in 2008 does not have to happen to you if you apply proper risk management. Fundamental analysis of stocks is reviewed as a tool for selecting stock candidates and contrasted with technical analysis, the art and science of technical indicators and chart reading. Several common technical indicators and candlestick patterns are explained and demonstrated. Each class includes a homework assignment that will be reviewed at the
beginning of the next class; this ensures a practical understanding of
the previous class topics. A systematic approach to stock selection, buying, and selling is presented. Students will be coached as to the investing styles and methods best suited to their objectives and risk tolerance. At the completion of this course, the student will:
Understand the use of ETFs and the pros and cons versus using mutual funds
Be able to fundamentally analyze a stock candidate and select the optimal price entry point
Understand technical indicators and their complementary use with fundamental analysis
Understand the basics of candlestick pattern analysis
Understand risk management and various stop loss techniques
Be familiar with techniques for portfolio management and rules for selling
Have developed a personal trading system, consistent with his or her objectives and risk tolerance
Length: Two Hour Private Webinar or Live One-on-One Session
A preliminary telephone conversation will establish the agenda and list of topics for the private session. This venue is ideal for trading strategy tune-ups or for experienced traders who wish to focus on one or two topics. The session can be held face-to-face in the greater Chicago area if desired. A customized curriculum for multiple sessions may be designed and specially priced. Click the Contact Us tab to set up a no obligation discussion of the possibilities.
Group classes are scheduled throughout the year. Watch the Coming Events page for the announcement of the next webinar series.
These classes are similar to Dr. Duke's private coaching classes, but lack the customization to the student's situation and goals. The group classes are delivered in a live, interactive webinar format, offered at two times each week to suit your schedule. You can attend the same day each week, attend a different session one week to accommodate your schedule or even repeat a class if desired. Each class includes a copy of the slides, homework exercises, and access to a recording of previous classes.

Since I’ve been trading condors the past 4 years,
there are normally 2 or more times per year that the market would run into my
positions forcing a rethink/reposition that normally ends in a loss. This
February would have followed the same pattern – market runs, the delta’s
get hammered, P/L is very much negative and I had to adjust for a loss in order
to avoid the bigger loss. I would be paralyzed for a few days not sure if
I should jump back in by adjusting the “safe” side or just stay on
the sidelines thinking of making it back the following month(s). Having your assistance this month was a life saver. The
March trades still face pressure and I’m sure you’ll be there to
call out adjustments as needed – if the market does what I think it
should and pull back, maybe we won’t need to do much. But as you
say, trade the market you’re given not the one you want.
