Premier Trader University is designed to be a comprehensive education for all traders – from the beginner to the advanced.

Taught in a traditional “University-style” format, Premier Trader University will provide students with the foundation and tools to be a successful trader on your own by the time you “Graduate”.

The University starts with the Home Study Guide, or Pre-Requisites to keep with the Academic theme. The goal of the Home Study Guide is to get everyone on a level playing field when the Undergraduate course begins.

If you are new to trading, the Home Study Guide will provide a wealth of information that would likely take years for you to accumulate on your own! If you already consider yourself an experienced trader, the Home Study Guide will provide you nuggets of information you may not have known that will broaden your overall knowledge and make you a better trader.

The self-paced Home Study Guide is provided to you in advance of the Undergraduate course, allowing you to establish a strong foundation of trading knowledge heading in to College! The nice part is we won’t require you to complete an application, take SATs or write an essay to join our University 🙂
