Market participants enter the financial arena for many different reasons. Whether actively thinking about it or not, the bottom line almost always comes down to the desire for short-term gains as well as the establishment of a secure financial future. From the standpoint of a technical trader, the skills for both are virtually interchangeable. In this class you will learn core technical skills required to read the upcoming trend in a market no matter which market is involved nor which time frame. Toni Hansen, a veteran trader with over 25-years of experience under her belt, will demonstrate how market tops form, and key differences between the beginning of a trend and its end. Pulling trades from diverse markets such as gold, forex, and grains, this session will open your eyes to situations where focusing on the short-term gains will be in your best interest, as well as how and when to protect short-term gains while building an investment in a longer-term position.
