Hi guys, hi from Andrea Unger. In this post I’ll tell you about what you can learn on trading from me and the Unger Academy.
Expectations I Can’t Meet
Let’s start with a very important question: what do I teach? The need to answer this question arose after I read the emails that some of the people who joined the free area of the Unger Academy to take advantage of the free contents that we make available sent to me.
These people normally receive an email in which I ask them about their main difficulty in trading. I read all their answers with great interest, and sometimes find emails in which they also tell me about what they expect to learn from the Unger Academy.
This is obviously useful in some cases. However, in many others I understand I cannot teach them what they are looking for.
There are topics I cannot teach people about, and this for two main reasons. First, I can’t know everything about trading. I do not have a specific knowledge of all trading topics, so I cannot teach what I do not personally know.
Second, and this is unfortunately what happens most often, these people ask for methods I don’t think can work. Methods they probably got convinced of because of either the many trading scams that there are out there, or common thinking, or whatever.
However, these methods do not really work the way they are supposed to do. So people hope the Unger Academy can provide them with some proper information about them.
I Teach What I Know – Automated Trading
I teach what I do, I teach what I learned, what I’ve been learning, because I’m still learning and I’ve been devoting a lot of time to studying for years.
This is my profession, my job, and I devote my full day and my money to it. And when I say money, I mean that I paid for the many mistakes I made. You know it very well, trading mistakes are very expensive, because they cost us real money.
My direct experience is packed together in the material I deliver, which is about automated trading. We can also call it algorithmic trading, where algorithmic means that decision-making rests upon numbers.
This is what I do: I need numbers to build a scenario I can be confident in and believe in, in order to place my trades.
I neither read the charts, nor think about macroeconomics, nor try to forecast where indexes will go or why the Crude Oil moved in a certain way. I don’t rely on what Mr. Trump is doing today, if his mobile phone battery is so low that he cannot tweet anymore, and so on and so forth.
And the reason why I don’t, is because this is not my job.
You Can Learn a Method To Build Your Own Systems
What I teach is what I do, my method. So, you will not learn a specific system or trading system, but rather the way to build your own systems.
Maybe you will get exactly the same I got, but what I teach you is how I structure my research and the process through which I develop my trading systems. This is what you can learn from me.
Every path and package is devised in order to provide people with all the knowledge that is necessary to start trading and become able to move autonomously.
There are some minor topics I will never pack together, because I don’t think that thing alone can really be worth being packed into a workshop, a handbook or whatever.
Perhaps, I will discuss about them in live events. However, if there is not enough material to build something, I don’t normally pack it together. This means that, if in the future some new material will be added, it will be just because, at that stage in time, I will believe that that material is good enough to represent a new thing in Unger Academy.
New for you, not new for me, because if I put something out, that’s something I’ve digested myself for a long time, before believing that it can lead to some interesting result.
You Won’t Learn Any Scalping Techniques!
So, guys, don’t come here asking for scalping techniques or short timeframe techniques because you don’t want to hold the position for a long time.
By the way, the time frame is not directly related to the time horizon of a position. A short time frame helps in reading the way the market moves, but does not necessarily mean that the position that is taken on a short time frame will be a short position in terms of duration.
It is not directly related, if you think it is because you think that all trades are taken out of specific patterns on the bars that are on the chart, which is not what I do.
So, guys, I can teach you about my approach to trading, which is the automated way. This is what you can find here. I cannot teach what you think would be good for you just because somebody convinced you.
Maybe if you join in and you come up with something I don’t think can really work, I can convince you that that’s the wrong way to go and in that case I am sure it will be a success for both, because you will get the right direction, which can allow you to save a lot of money you would have probably thrown out of the window due to those mistakes.
So, guys, the Unger Academy is all about algorithmic trading, and this is what you will learn here. This is what I do and I couldn’t teach what I don’t do, because it would be very difficult and very hard.
I hope you’re still interested and look forward to meet you next time!
Ciao from Andrea Unger.
