Our Steps Forward for a Member…

EDUCATION – The trading education is for all levels of traders from beginners to experienced advanced traders.  IDTA have a fusion of online and live educational programs and events so therefore you can be anywhere in the world and still be educated through the Academy. Our trading education and tools are simplistic and innovative. The company spends time researching the latest and greatest trading information and tools to bring to you directly to enhance your trading capabilities.

FOUNDATION – This foundation gives you knowledge and an understanding of the market you wish to day trade as well as strategies to help you extract a profit from the market. While strategies do vary, for the most part this information can be found online or in textbooks for little to no cost. Many day-trading schools even give away their strategies for free. This is because the strategy is only a small part of becoming a successful trader.

MENTORING – There are many options to stay ahead of your trading game and stay plugged into the regular coaching and mentoring available each week. You can attend information webinars, implementation webinars, weekly beginner and advanced coaching, trading indicator webinars, or if necessary a one on one mentoring arrangement can be organised with one of our trading coaches, there is a choice of many different trading coach levels, and believe that this is more pivotal to the success than just the information a trader receives from books or articles. The mentoring stage introduces an outside, objective observer to your trading.

SUPPORT – You will need to know that we don’t enrol you in the IDTA trading program and leave you to work it out for yourself. Our support programs will assist you to set up your trading, implement your tools and understand the markets. The company has a full in house support team to also assist if you cannot gain what you need by the online service already supplied.


The academy offers its members a lifetime membership to superior trading education in the Day Trading Market online and live events, information webinars, implementation webinars, weekly beginner and advanced coaching, trading level indicator products and webinars, or if necessary a one on one mentoring arrangement, complimentary online trading resources and a trading library.
