Event description


Trading 101 presented by 

Join well known author and trader Malcolm Pryor for a whole day seminar going through the a complete 101 guide to trading.

The knowledge in this course has been developed by Malcolm over a life time of reading and research into the theory and practice of trading and markets as well as his own actual trading. What he is presenting is a practical guide to the components of a plan that actually work. From that participants will be able to start to build a trading plan that suits both their objectives as well as their personality. In between the overview Malcolm will present some trading strategies that are actually working in the current markets.

It is generally accepted that about 90% of those who first enter the markets or start to spread bet lose money.
