The ability to perform under pressure comes from the constant teachings of the markets and the psychology and discipline needed to navigate them successfully.
A DAY IN THE LIFE AT
SEVEN POINTS CAPITAL
Making money starts with being professional. We teach our traders how to implement sound trading strategies in a fast paced environment. Our traders come in early and review how world markets traded overnight. They look for sectors and companies in the news and plan a strategy of attack for the day. Throughout the day we discuss and review our progress in order to push ourselves to perform at a high level. After the market closes, traders will discuss what they did well and what they would have liked to do better as they comment in their journals.
Becoming a consistently profitable trader does not depend on magical formulas or gut feel. Rather, it involves trading strategies that have an edge while implementing robust risk management. Successful traders study themselves and incorporate psychology into their decision making. To be successful you have to be willing to change your opinion and think of expected value rather than any one trade’s profitability.
Candidates that have been selected to join our exclusive training program are taught the foundation and structure of the markets.
In addition to classes outside of market hours, our trainees get to shadow our experienced traders and learn in real time.
Once trainees have passed the required registration exams and have demonstrated that they are able to apply our trading strategies in simulation, they begin to trade our capital on a small scale.
As traders interact with our experienced trading managers our formal ongoing education teaches them how to be scalable and push for maximum performance.

Before you 'quit your day job' and switch careers, consider the following:
Many new traders struggle and do not make a profit in the first few months. Do you have enough money saved to keep a roof over your head during tough times?
