About this course
The Price, Context and Market structure Course was put together with the aim of providing actionable knowledge to market participants by discussing key structural notions relating to markets in general and the framework needed to read price and articulating trades. The focus of the course is the currency markets (Forex), however the notions discussed also apply to most markets and securities. The course revolves around the understanding of price itself, the use of tools, specifically pitchforks, the practice of risk:reward and key trading notions.

All information is presented from a practical / trading standpoint. The 'Know thy markets' Chapter discusses knowledge that market participants should be aware of and uses market events to exemplify key points. The next chapter 'Framework and tools' starts by discussing the question of "'who do you trade against?" and then goes on to explain the approach answering questions like "How to dissect price action on any chart?", "Which tools can be deployed at what time?", "How to spot a trade?", "How to plan for a trade?", "How to execute a trade?", "How to manage a trade?". All the knowledge learned previously is put to work in Chapter 4. This is done by going through one year of price action of a security bar by bar. This is the closest thing to live trading and teaches the thinking process behind reading context, spotting trade setups and executing these trades. The course finally concludes with the 'Guidelines' chapter which provides clear guidelines to follow.
