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.

Buckle Up! Why Your Stocks Need the Safety of Options

Presented by Eric Hale, Instructor, OptionsANIMAL, LLC

We don’t stop driving cars because there are car accidents. But we do drive safer.

Options can provide the tools for traders to protect assets, speculate and profit from big moves, and generate income. However, when trading options, like driving a car, safety and knowledge are essential. Join Eric Hale of OptionsANIMAL as he shows how you can use options to build trades for speculating, protecting assets, generating income – or a combination of all three.

Eric has been trading options since 2004. After mastering the OptionsANIMAL method, he discovered what he needed to become a successful investor. Today, he uses that knowledge to trade successfully and to teach other investors to be successful as well.

*Options trading is not suitable for all investors.
