Trainers: Dr. Emilio Tomasini , Adjunct Professor of Corporate Finance – University of Bologna
Rakesh Shah,
Systematic Trading Advisor for Kingly Capital Asset Management and Institutional Trader 

Dates to Organised upon application

The seminar is aimed to:

  • Those traders who do not want to go ahead in losing money with classical technical analysis (trendlines, oscillators, Japanese candlesticks, Elliott waves, Gann, Fibonacci …)
  • Those amateur traders willing to become professional full time traders
  • Those financial industry players who do not want to depend on third parties’ analysis but they believe it is the right time to start to think individually
The seminar is NOT targeted to:
  • Those who think that to make money on the markets it is easy or that you can learn it for free over the Internet
  • Those who would like to improve themselves but they do not have the will to do it to because learning is very demanding
  • Those who think that it is better to have a fish today than to learn how to fish

The seminar’s target: is to learn ONLY those elements of technical analysis that make money on the markets, avoiding useless theory and ignore over all the theory which is not demonstrable scientifically (the so called “classical” technical analysis).
Why a 3 day seminar? This is the minimum time needed to learn something scientifically and it is why the seminar is directed only to those people that are serious about trading.

Why this seminar and not other seminars:
  • You will be given many trading systems codes in PowerLanguage code Multicharts to trade and to look for patterns;
  • You will get a seminar mostly practical where theory is kept at a minimum level
  • Everything you will learn is scientifically demonstrable;
  • After the seminar: the participants will be able to evaluate a trading strategy they can buy or rent from a third party or they can build themselves.  Participants will be able to test, optimize and trade automatically a trading system.
