I Want to Be a Trader

Are you a “newer-ish” retail investor who wants to become a better trader? Would a better understanding of trading fundamentals help you? Use the TradeStation University Advantage to get on a more level playing field.


Many experts believe that the most important thing a new trader can do is become educated about the language of trading and basic market concepts. Using both technical and fundamental analysis helps traders focus on key pricing analysis studies and assists in determining the basic condition of a company by examining its core indicators, including income statements, earnings releases, balance sheet and other measures of financial well-being. By studying all of this together, TradeStation traders can identify stocks that might be better investment choices.


This series of TradeStation University online seminars will introduce a wide range of market analysis concepts and trading ideas for novice traders, highlighting the features of the TradeStation trading platform. Taught by both TradeStation and industry experts, these seminars start with the basics to demonstrate the practical application of market analysis tools for today’s complex markets.
