How does Trade Speakeasy work?

1.  Take Our Intro Webinar, and Introduction to the Trade Speakeasy Way
2.  Enroll in any or all of the course sections that are of interest to you:

Trade Speakeasy focuses on three areas of education:
The stock market and business analysis (101 and 201)
Options trading from single through an array of multi-leg strategies (101-401)
Technical Analysis (101 and 201)

The courses are divided into rooms which are more manageable, and will allow you to grow at your own pace without the pressure of an endless rotation of courses in front of you.  However, like many investors, after a season the foundational courses are insufficient to continue growing and expanding your knowledge base.  

Many investors enjoy being a part of a trade community of like minded, growing, engaged investors that enjoy continued learning and expanding their agility in an ever changing market environment.

3.  Join an Accountability Group or Trading a Community
Courses will start every quarter with a limited number of spaces available, this will allow students to start each course with a group of like minded students and form smaller strategy groups to discuss individual trade plans, strategies, market observations, and the like.

How much time will it take?  

Each course has an open syllabus which includes the number of currently available videos, though every group will have ever expanding course material and learning materials.  Trading is not a static skill, though you can become a proficient trader with strong trade management and few of you prefered strategies, it is advisable that traders remain flexible to changing markets.  Therefore the course material will be always expanding with new data as changes occure that are relevant to the skills of the individual courses.

Each course takes 2-3 months and is supported with a weekly Q/A Zoom calls for current students; and we recommend at least 2 month of simulated trading before trading live.

How long until you’re trading like a Speakeasy Trader?

Those who have had some trading experience find within a few weeks they’re able to begin adding new tools to their trading toolkit.  For those who have never traded in the stock market will need a month or two to become acquainted with the new vocabulary, and platform, and once they’ve completed the introductory materials and have traded for at least 2 months in their SIM account, they’ll be able to confidently move into the art of live trading with manageable and risk appropriate trading.

Can I join if I don’t live in the US?

Every country has their own regulations and you will need to know which local or regional platforms are most suitable for your needs.  All the skills taught here can be used on any platform and all the technical skills are useful for trading any instrument.  You can trade from anywhere you have a good internet connection (though you may be using a unique platform depending on your country of citizenship).

Most of our students are trading the European and US markets, but some are also trading the Asian open.  Our expertise is focused on equities and optionable underlyings, however the world of trading has advanced so rapidly over the years  you can no even trade options on futures, and some of our futures focused traders utilize our array of options strategies in the futures market.

Our trading techniques are universal, and we use them in all tradable markets including Asian, European and US markets.

What if I have a small amount to trade?

You can begin trading with $500, though it is recommended to start with at least $3000 to be able to spread your risk.

Where do I start?

Start by watching our Introductory Videos on YouTube, to see if the Trade Speakeasy is right for you.

What’s different about Trade Speakeasy?

We are traders that believe it is not necessary to blow through accounts or capital while learning, we teach robust risk management strategies so that our traders can avoid the ‘right of passage’.  Sound risk management for the newer or more long term trader should be sound management skills for all.
All of our teachers have been successful traders while working full time, and having young children and families to care for.  Our strategies are not developed so your computer is glued to your side, we offer a diversity of trading systems that fit around you schedule.  Some more profitable than others, but strategies that protect the home life balance that is often ignored by many trading systems.

Trade responsibly. Past performance, whether actual or indicated by historical tests of strategies, is no guarantee of future performance or success. There is a possibility that you may sustain a loss equal to or greater than your entire investment regardless of which asset class you trade; therefore, you should not invest or risk money that you cannot afford to lose. Options trading is not suitable for all investors.
