The typical timeline of the trader training program should look something like this but may vary depending on your previous experience:
Month 1: Work through the course materials, complete the assignments, and pass the quizzes and exams.
Month 2: Complete your trading plan, formulate strategy integrating the course materials, and start trading in simulated environment. Daily recaps will provide you with valuable feedback on available trading opportunities and how you performed in comparison.
Month 3+: Start trading in non-simulation (live) once your expectancy is positive.
Ideally, you should be ready for live trading three months after starting the CEED.trading training program.
No. The primary purpose of the program is to increase your odds of success or improve your current results if you’re already profitable.
The trading pits with human traders are gone — the associated concepts and terminology are obsolete now and need to be replaced with an objective framework to make sense of price formation.
First, you need to fully understand market microstructure from a perspective of institutional order execution algorithms and HFTs. Feed your trader intuition by understanding the strengths and the weaknesses of other market participants instead of trying to find patterns in noisy charts based on random technical indicators.
The trader training program consists of basic and advanced course modules:
CEED.basics covers general trading topics based on publicly available information about value (edge) preservation techniques that every trader needs to know about in finding the balance between minimizing risk and maximizing return. These are necessary for properly implementing your edge or executing your strategy.
CEED.accelerator explains how, why, and when informed (institutional), partially-informed (HFTs), and uninformed (noise) traders interact in today’s algo-driven markets. These course modules are concerned with value (edge) creation or developing what you perceive to be your advantage over other traders.
CEED.incubator and the CEED.mentoring add-on module are aimed at traders who would like personal hand-holding during both the learning and implementation stages.
CEED.trading’s fundamental mission is to promote independent thought and decision-making.
You may have already experienced that you seem to intuitively make the “wrong” trading decisions, it’s not your intuition that’s to blame but the “counter-intuitive” information you used to train it with. You’re in the right place to feed your intuition using an objective framework instead of fiction.
If you’re not ready or willing to retrain your intuition and unlearn concepts that simply don’t work for you, then this course program is not for you.
Yes, after the free registration to our site you are automatically assigned affiliate status and may refer friends and family. The referral commission is 10% of the respective membership fee and increases to 20% for current members or graduates of the paid programs.
In the hyper-competitive environment of futures trading, traders will quickly face diminishing returns in less liquid markets due to capacity constraints and arbitrage.
Therefore, the number of members at CEED.trading is limited to 250 new traders per calendar year in order to protect the intellectual property of all members and prevent excessive dilution of trading opportunities.
Don’t worry, a basic understanding of math and probabilities coupled with a commitment to learning is enough. In addition to 12/7 chat and email support, our community of shared learning will be there to help you if necessary.
Above all, you need to be open to replace outdated concepts, forget any limitations you think you have, and start with a beginner’s mind.
For the best learning experience, the advanced courses require access to a simulator or live trading account to complete the assignments and exercises.
If you don’t have a demo or live futures account yet, we recommend selecting a broker that supports Sierra Chart with Advanced Features (Service package 5) as we use it in the course modules and the weekly strategy recaps.
In short: no. The purpose of the basic courses is to give you a feel for the overall course structure and presentation of course materials. If your’re new to futures trading, we strongly recommend that you first exhaust freely available education resources such as the CME’s education portal or an introduction to futures and options at EUREX.
Once you’re familiar with the basics, you can start with the Trading Plan Development module and complete each section of the plan as you go through each subsequent course module.

Yes. The methodology is based on understanding the mechanics of (and reactions to) order execution algorithms which were initially deployed by institutions in stocks and recently increasingly also in futures.
Order execution algorithms are also deployed in liquid cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum or Litecoin on the major exchanges. So the principles learned in this course program also apply to these markets.
