The International Academy of Trading
About the International Academy of Trading
The International Academy of Trading was born out of necessity. Our teaching faculty is comprised of experienced traders and educators who have a huge amount of experience not only working behind the dealing desk but most importantly profitably trading capital over many years. Having worked in the industry and seen tens of thousands of retail traders speculate on the financial markets, all too often people make mistakes and lose their capital. Even when trader gets a trade “right” and the market moves in the direction that was anticipated, unfortunately the trade can get wiped out in the process. All too often this is due to a poor understanding of leverage and risk management.
Trading can be very rewarding but without sound fundamental underpinning and tried and tested methodologies, the trader is at a statistical disadvantage and is likely to lose. This is compounded when individuals try and chase their losses or use untested methodologies which will ultimately lead to capital loss. The International Academy of Trading provides real sustainable techniques and a relentless approach to avoiding common trading pitfalls. We believe in live interactive trading education as the markets are live and one cannot truly learn without the ability to ask many questions. Traders also benefit from the community aspect of the International Academy of Trading and can learn from others across the globe.
Standard of Education
Through the countless hours trading, educating and monitoring trader behaviour, the insights provided by the International Academy of Trading educators are extremely comprehensive and unique. Having successfully educated tens of thousands of traders to the very highest level our experienced educators know how best to give each individual trader the tools and knowledge to hone their trading skills. We do not engage in prediction, nor provide trading “tips”. We are strong advocates of trading from the charts based on the information that is presented to us through the movements of price. All events, knowledge and information is reflected in price movements which should be observed and traded accordingly. Trying to predict what US presidents say or do and the consequential impact of same on the markets, or what a price will be in the future, we believe is tantamount to glorified gambling or folly. The trajectory of a market determined by every piece of available information reflected in the price, coupled with sound risk management and capital preservation techniques are a more prudent and sustainable methodology to give the best possible opportunity for an individual trader to be successful. This is borne out through the countless happy traders our educators have had the pleasure to teach.
Here at the International Academy of Trading we believe in continuous improvement through the provision of live interactive trading education in an affordable manner. By being at the cutting edge of the latest trading developments and interacting with our students, this ensures this innovation benefits our own financial trading activity. Our traders’ successes benefit us in every conceivable fashion and we are extremely passionate about our world-class trading education
Tom Daly, Director of Trading Education, International Academy of Trading
With a background in Science, having studied Physics in Dublin City University, Tom has always taken a keen interest in mathematics, cause and effect. Having traded successfully with his own capital for many years, Tom went on to work in the brokerage space and subsequently ran a trading brokerage in the City of London. He is one of the world’s leading online trading educators having personally taught over 150,000+ financial traders from every continent.
Tom has unique experience trading his own capital, monitoring the trades of thousands of traders within a brokerage and educating hundreds of thousands of traders. From his position he is able to completely understand the actions and mindset of retail traders, knowing how they function and how they react when the markets move in unexpected ways.
Tom is hugely passionate about the markets and educating people about the realities of trading.
Tom is relentless in his belief that there is not enough practical support for people looking to trade the financial markets. More often than not there is a fundamental lack of continued support and genuine interest in the performance of students post completion of other course providers. Worse still the majority of novice traders do not have the foresight nor access to an educational program prior to starting to trade. This is very dangerous in a complex marketplace that is tantamount to aimless gambling.
This belief has led to the formation of the International Academy of Trading. Here we concentrate fully on the student – from the initial educational offering, trading support during education, to continued interaction and assistance post course completion. It is the needs of the student-trader which is constantly foremost in Tom and his fellow educators’ minds. The best trader needs to be humble knowing that his learning never ends. The markets are always good at providing a reminder of this.
The International Academy of Trading truly provides complete support to a trader – something which Tom has not found anywhere else. His trading journey, brokerage background and unique educational profile has culminated in him now passing this knowledge to those that seek it. He is exceptionally proud of the International Academy of Trading and is looking forward to many, many more years of providing hugely successful award winning trading education. The goal is simple: for the International Academy of Trading to become the #1 trusted destination for online trading education in the world.
