Q. How long have you been in business?

A. Cyber Trading University was founded in 1995 by Fausto Pugliese, one of the original SOES bandits. Fausto serves as the company president and teaches several courses.

Q.What makes Cyber Trading University any different from other trading education providers?

A. Frankly, there are numerous training options available, but you must be careful whom you trust for your market education. A poor choice not only wastes your money, but sends you into the market unprepared for the action, leaving you vulnerable to potentially devastating damage. Cyber Trading University delivers a superior educational experience. We limit our class size to enhance participation and education. We only accept the finest instructors in their area of specialization. We offer frequent live trading demonstrations during market hours to facilitate learning. We encourage students to interact with our instructors. And, we provide a broad range of classes. In short, we do everything possible to give you the best chance to succeed in the markets.

Q. Do you only teach about trading strategies?

A.No. Our courses provide a comprehensive education, and delve into important matters such as account management and trading psychology.

Q. Who teaches the classes?

A. Only veteran, successful traders who have passed a difficult screening exam may teach at Cyber Trading University. Our instructors have seen virtually every type of market situation, and allow students to benefit from both their triumphs and failures. Additionally, all instructors must have the ability to convey their knowledge in an easily understood, engaging manner.

Q.Why don’t your instructors just trade instead of teaching?

A. They do. We require all our instructors to be active traders in the markets.

Q. How much do your classes cost?

A. Our course fees vary by the type of class. Other providers charge anywhere from two-to-five times as much as Cyber Trading University for the same kinds of courses.

Q. Do you offer any FREE classes?

A. Absolutely. In fact, these classes represent an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with our university.

Q. What happens if I can’t attend my class or want to watch a class I just took again?

A. No problem. Just reschedule the same class at a more convenient time and all our classes are recorded and available to view on-demand on your “Education Dashboard”.

Q. Will position or momentum traders benefit from taking the daytrading classes?

A. Definitely. These classes provide a solid understanding of the market, especially about the important “hidden” action occurring beneath the market surface. Without this knowledge, position or momentum players may limit their earnings while making countless, needless mistakes.

Q. Do you recommend any trading services?

A. Yes. From being traders ourselves, we know what matters most in terms of brokerage services. We continually monitor the landscape to keep track of the best prices and tools for our students, and are happy to pass along our findings. Just contact us for more information.

Q. Does Cyber Trading University provide any on-site training for brokerage firms?

A. Certainly. Our instructors travel all over the country teaching individuals to trade, and we’d be delighted to visit your facility. Please contact us for pricing and availability information.

Q. Who should I talk to if I have any questions?

A. Simply contact us, and a company representative will be in touch shortly.

Q: I have a job. Do I have to watch the market all day to be a successful daytrader?

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.

Q: What is the profit potential of Fausto’s trading methods?

A: Technically, there is no limit to how much can be earned each day because it is infinitely scalable, depending on how much of your profits are reinvested. Our successful students earn anywhere from $200 per day consistently (a day’s pay or $50,000/year) to several thousand Dollars per day.

Q: Does daytrading still work in this HFT and algo-driven era?

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.

Q: Why is Fausto’s trading method different and better than other schools’ methods?

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.

Q: I’ve heard that 90% of daytraders fail. Why are your students the exception to this rule?

A: Most daytraders 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. Cyber Trading University teaches students how to find the highest reward, lowest risk stocks to trade and teaches how to cut losses to a very minimum if a trade doesn’t work out. Through rigorous risk controls and money management, our students have a much greater shot at becoming consistently profitable.

Q: Why do you sell courses if you could just trade this system?

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.

Live Trade Room Disclosure

This presentation is for educational purposes only and the opinions expressed are those of the presenter only. All trades presented should be considered hypothetical and should not be expected to be replicated in a live trading account.

Risk Disclosure:

This site is for educational purposes only. Past results are not indicative of future returns.

Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.


Hypothetical Performance Disclosure:

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
