The stock market is currently experiencing very interesting times. Some commentators are saying that this is the perfect time for a person who wants to build wealth to enter the market as prices start to recover. To buy at these low prices and build a nest egg for the future. Others say there is more to come.
One thing for sure, timing is everything! Picking the best time to enter and exit the market is the key to building wealth.
One of Canning College's most successful short courses is called "Computers, Charting and the Stock Market". It provides easy step by step learning is a "no nonsense" practical way. The course teaches students how to recognise changes in trends and read the signals generated by various indicators. As a result, you will be taught to recognise changes in market sentiment in time to capitalise on the changes to the market environment.
The course is run by two lecturers who are both there at all times to assist. Both are experienced stock market traders, with a combined experience in the market of over 60 years.
The course has been part of Canning College's curriculum for over 15 years and classes are almost always full. It can run in two formats:
The content of each course is identical and whether you attend one or the other is a matter to suit your availability and your lifestyle.
You will learn the skills of Technical Analysis - the study of market action using charts. You will learn to interpret the signals generated and yhow to make investment decisions based on changes in trends. The course is very comprehensive and deals with each of the following:
Each class is 'hands-on' and students each have the full personal use of a college computer for the duration. The software used throughout is exclusively IC Investor. If you already own this software, it is an ideal time to become familiar with it and discover the wide variety of functionality it provides. If you own a competitive software package, the course is a generic one and the techniques you learn can be applied to most of the popular charting packages available on the market. If you do not own a software charting package at present, your experience at this course will provide you with the information you need to fully evaluate the features offered by the various software packages available on the market.
The cost of attending either is $385.00. This includes a full set of easy to read and understand notes detailing the lectures precisely. PLUS you will also receive a CD containing all data used in the classes and each of the exercises. You can use this at home revise and practice the lessons on your own computer and enhance your learning experience. This CD runs on the course software, IC Investor which is available for purchase through the College at a substantial discount for students.
Most people who do the course have an interest in the stock market and simply want to hone their skills so they can develop a second income stream from trading. Indeed, we have a significant number of ex-students who have given up successful careers and professions to become full-time stock market traders.
Our reseach shows that people who have attended the course were seeking:
Over the 13 years the course has been running, one of its features has been the enthusiastic response from those who participate. So high is the level of interest that frequently students arrive up to an hour beforehand to talk to the lectures and practice the lessons from last week. Many stay in contact and frequently refer their friends and relatives.
Interestingly enough, many people travel from all around Australia to do the course because they tell us that there is not another similar course in the country that is so comprehensive and at $363, such good value.

The simple answer is no, although it is fair to say that more than 50% of students have some understanding of how the market functions. During the course, you will learn about stock market dynamics and develop an understanding of the psychology that drives it.
