These are the major topics that will be in the lectures. The total package is really a two to three day seminar.
The difference between us and others is that we will make all the demonstrations on live markets!! Also we are the only ones running it from a trader of multi year’s experience that has seen all sides of the business from the top level. Most are people that have never experienced the banking or hedge fund industry from the inside.
I would suggest that we offer a beginner and experienced trader structure! Both can be run off the same model just adapting the content to simpler terms for the inexperienced trader.

We can offer a technical analysis only structure too as that will be more popular for traders as they see it as a quick way to success. Also we can run a mental attitude course which is key to any trader.

I would see this as a good overall product to offer to banks for their graduate trainee schemes and also for their clients. Also some banks would be willing to pay for clients to attend for their junior staff. Something we could turn into a bonding session for Banks and clients aimed at their junior staff combining a five day course including other bonding activities. It is building business and personal relationships for the future. Delivered externally, so that it is seen as value that the client is being offered by the Banks.
