  1. What is your trading style?

We teach a short-term/long-term trend and momentum strategy that includes reversals and fades for equities, ETFs and options that work in all time intervals. Most of the trades are done during wet climate conditions (high volatility and great follow through), so a position does not stay on for long; However, out trading styles allow you to participate in all market conditions or when a burst of momentum may occur in a particular stock or market.

Yes, we can. That is our job!  All students are provided access to live webinars and group sessions with Jea Yu as well as recorded classes, quizzes, assignments, certification exams, 1-on-1 coaching and placement assistance opportunities to trade firm capital on behalf of an investment advisory firm or private-equity firm.

Alpha 7 Trading Academy was designed and developed by and for principals of investment advisory firms specifically to mold and shape the next generation of risk-averse and consistent profitable traders. Most education firms do not have reputable sources creating/teaching their education or the right technology to support remote students. Our courses were designed by best-selling trading author, Jea Yu who has over 15 years of active participation in US Equities, Futures and Options Markets. Jea has been Voted Forbes Best of the Web for four consecutive years as well authored four best sellers through Wiley Trading and McGraw Hill with his latest book released in July 2013 by Bloomberg Press and John Wiley.

Each of our courses includes: 15 – 20 hours of highly-interactive video along with countless hours of documents, and assignments.  Chapter overview quizzes help you isolate your weak points and focus on correction commonly-made errors.  Optional homework assignments (reviewed and graded by experienced traders) help facilitate what you learned by implementing theory into practice.

9. Is Alpha7 a brokerage firm?

No. Alpha 7 Trading Academy is a private proprietary-trading education firm. Alpha 7 has partnered with industry-leading technology organizations providing our traders with advanced software, educational resources, state-of-the-art online educational facilities and comprehensive live risk-management support. Unlike most proprietary trading courses, Alpha 7 provides a comprehensive proprietary LMS (educational learning system) to provide you the support you need to beat the learning curve. Because we are not a brokerage firm, we frown upon industry’s status-quo of “churning” traders and actively discourage high-frequency trading which typically generate lots of commissions for the brokerage while putting retail-traders as a disadvantage.
