A: Thankfully, you don’t have to watch the market all day. We have many students who work full-time, but focus on trading at the most active times of day like the mornings or afternoon. Others may place trades during their lunch hour. 

A: Conventional daytrading techniques do not work anywhere near as well as they once did thanks to these technological changes, but Cyber Trading University’s techniques are very different because they actually allow independent, human traders to spot high frequency trading (HFT) and algorithmic trade setups and go along for the ride. We are the only trading school that teaches this form of modern-day tape reading.

A: Other trading schools tend to focus excessively on price action and technical analysis, which no longer works as well on intraday because HFT algorithms are designed to “fake out” these technical traders. Fausto, however, goes right to the source and teaches how to actually spot HFT and algorithmic action and follow the “smart money” to catch the most powerful trends while avoid getting shaken out like the “dumb money” traders typically are.

A: Most day traders follow conventional trading techniques that have largely been rendered obsolete by high frequency trading and also lack the proper risk management skills. Many of these traders think that they’re following a sound strategy, but are actually pursuing a strategy is that is similar to gambling. 

A. We do trade our system alongside our students who we’ve taught. Cyber Trading University’s staff and its CEO Fausto Pugliese enjoy the company of other traders and benefit from having many more eyes on the market (via our popular CyberGroup trading room) to look for potentially profitable trading opportunities.
