Our courses are a comprehensive, interactive educational experience. It is our objective to make sure you understand how to effectively apply investing skills.
The courses consists of a combination of online study material, interactive online activities and live support in the form of webinars, forums and messaging.
There are more than 15 courses available on Learning Markets. Each course is designed to focus on a unique aspect of investing, such as determining your investing style or understanding how and when to enter or exit trades. Some material is available site-wide, such as your profile, forums or the market update. Other elements may appear in every course but their contents are course-specific, such as your specific course completion status or grades.

Courses are made up of a series of lessons. Each lesson is numbered and it is important that you take each lesson in order as they build upon one another. Your knowledge will be tested along the way so it's very important that you feel comfortable with a topic before moving on to the next lesson.
Each lesson is made up of various resources and activities. Resources might include reading assignments, videos, bibliographies and more. Activities might include interactive reading assignments (requiring input from you), assignments (requiring you to submit work to an instructor) and quizzes, which test your knowledge.
Tracks are simply a collection of courses. We organize courses into tracks to help you accomplish specific investing objectives. "Trading for Income" is an example of a track. This track will include courses that help you understand how to find and trade stocks and/or options to inrease the income your portfolio is capable of generating.

Application Is Key
The most important element of any lesson is the ability to move beyond theory and into the world of application. This is simply a fancy way of saying you need to apply what you've learned in a real market environment. We help you do this in a number of ways in each lesson. Don't get frustrated — the idea is to make sure you've grasped the theory enough to be able to use it in the real world. Otherwise, what's the point?
You can enroll or un-enroll from a course at any time. This is simply a way of helping you focus your attention and activities. For more about enrolling see this article here.
