Product Review: The Futures Academy by David Penn
Early on in his discussion of trading, narrator and course developer Ira Epstein warns listeners that for the past several years we’ve all learned “the wrong lessons” from the equities bull market just ended.
Whether the approach to the market was a simple
buy and hold strategy or a more nuanced “add on the dips” technique, the fact of the matter is, as they say, bull markets make every investor look like a genius. But with the secular bull market now only a memory, Epstein encourages those who want to start trading — or who want to improve upon their current trading
efforts — to believe that there are still opportunities to profit through trading.
These opportunities, however, require a different sort of “lesson” from the one too many investors learned in the 1990s. That’s where Ira Epstein’s The Futures Academy “Train to Trade” educational trading course comes in. By teaching novice and intermediate traders about trends, market strength and direction, as
well as effective money management techniques, Epstein’s “Train to Trade” course is a perfect example of the sort of lesson successful traders will need to
learn in order to profit from their trading in the 21st century.
