Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need a TAS Tutor?
The reality is that having an experienced trading coach is not a prerequisite to using TAS trading indicators, nor does it necessarily guarantee success. As with any skilled endeavor those who have achieved a high level of performance will often credit the impact of a coach in maximizing their potential and making progress toward a goal. A trading coach is no different, but rather than focusing on your physical attributes they are helping you to become aware of your intellectual strengths and weaknesses that comprise your total trading mind. Learning on the fly is typically a steep learning curve that can prove very expensive in the markets. Sadly, the vast majority of independent traders will never graduate from the School of Hard Knocks on their own. A TAS Tutor serves as your personal trading coach to help you become the best trader you can be.
How can a TAS Tutor help me?
A TAS Tutor will guide you through your personal growth by outlining a path toward self-sufficiency and confident trading with TAS indicators. Below are common ways TAS Tutors help their students:
- Reduce the learning curve
- Accelerate confidence
- Strategy and pattern recognition
- Build a custom trading plan
- Identify strengths and weaknesses
- Trader psychology assessment
- Controlling emotions in trading
Is the training online or in-person?
The TAS Tutor 10-Pack offers the convenience of online-based training to students. You’ll be able to connect with your Tutor via our private online training rooms for 1-on-1 coaching and screen-sharing while you digest your 10 hours of dedicated trader training. The Market Masters VIP training provides a combination of in-person training from your TAS Tutor for 2 days at your location of choice and 10 hours of maintenance training online thereafter. This is the most intense trader engagement training that we offer.
When do the training sessions occur?
That’s up to you. You can provide a complete schedule of dates and times for your online meetings or use them on-demand in a flexible format with your TAS Tutor. You’ll put in your scheduling preferences and your tutor will confirm availability.
What if I need to reschedule a session?
We realize that “life happens” so if you need to reschedule due to unforeseen events, please notify us as soon as possible so your tutor can be alerted to your conflict.
What topics can be discussed?
These tutoring sessions are designed around you so you dictate the topics. You choose the area of trading that you would like to focus on and your coach will share insights on those topics. So whether you want to dig into trade entry techniques or psychology, your tutor will be equipped to engage you.
Can I switch my tutor?
No. Please choose wisely before you hire your tutor. Each of the TAS trading coaches put a great deal of time into customizing their lessons for students. Therefore, we kindly ask that you refrain from asking to switch tutors until all of your sessions have been consumed. View it like choosing your university professor, we want you to finish the course after you have enrolled. Should you desire additional time with another TAS Tutor, they can be hired separately.
Can a TAS Tutor help me with a trading plan?
Absolutely. Some students have a general idea of what they want their trading plan to be while others are starting from scratch. You can submit your trading plan to your coach for review and then work together to improve and refine it for trading deployment. Then as with any trading plan, you may need to review your results and refine further.
What can hinder my progress as a student?
There are numerous pitfalls that can impede a student’s progress. Below are a few that can really hurt:
- Defending bad habits
- Making excuses for breaking rules
- Trying to satisfy too many other methods/indicators
- Forgetting the mental side of trading
- Deploying only part of a trading plan
Does everything have to be about TAS?
Your coaches have a wide breadth of knowledge in trading matters. They might not know about everything you are interested in, but you can most certainly ask. These sessions are about getting you the answers that you want.
Can someone else just trade for me?
A trading mentor’s job is NOT to trade for you or specifically tell you when and what to trade. While the markets will provide a wealth of tangible examples for lessons, you must have a desire to be the trader responsible for decision-making and the deployment of the strategies learned. If you are simply seeking to follow a recommendation service or participate in a managed investment, TAS Tutor is not the place for you. TAS Tutors do not manage money so please do not solicit them to do so.
