Introduction to Trading
Learn to Trade From a Solid Foundation
This is a completely free introduction to trading course.
What I have found over the years of teaching people to trade, is that a large portion start out without a proper understanding of what they are doing and the instruments they are using. Without a solid foundation, it is much harder to build and work toward your trading goals.
This course contains 14 lectures. I have kept each of them short enough that you can run through the entire course in an afternoon, whilst still gaining a good understanding of the fundamentals of trading.
If you don't understand what a Market Maker is and what they do, or have difficulty understanding Leverage, then this course will help you out.
And the best part of all? It's completely free.

Hi. I’m James Orr, founder of Decisive Trading. I taught myself how to trade, and believe me, I did it the hard way. On my journey I blew up accounts and made every mistake in the book. A lot of this was because the education and training I received was very poor. At the time I believed that the more I spent, the better the education would be, and as such I wasted thousands of pounds on what amounted to useless information.
However I persevered and I learned how to trade successfully. In fact, I developed highly effective, high probability trading methods that I continue to use to this day and that allow me to trade full time.
I got back to basics and spent hundreds of hours on the charts honing what I already knew and searching the world for new, useful information. For months at a time I worked 18 hour days, sat at my computer with a firm determination and more than a few coffees in order to do this. Out of the hard work emerged the solid foundation that was the base for everything I do today.
Decisive Trading is here to allow you to bypass the hardship that I suffered and countless beginner traders continue to struggle through today. My aim is to give you the best chance possible of becoming a successful, independent trader.
In order to achieve this, Decisive Trading offers countless free training videos on our YouTube channel so you can learn the basics for free. On top of that, we have professional training courses designed to take you to the next step on your trading journey, with all of the information being of the highest quality and finely tuned to give you the edge in the markets required to succeed.
