In all of the futures trading community, how many groups can say; “Come and join us for a get-together and a meal, we’ll have a swell time sharing?” We’ll learn and earn and exceed our financial goals with this awesome business.  This group of successful business entrepreneurs are a work at home success story. You may just want to earn more money, or you may want to start a $500K career, either way, you came to the right site.

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I have no knowledge of another group this big that will support their members and share with each other as we grow together. As we learn and earn. Even though we meet on-line up to 5 times a day, we still can put a face to the others in our trading sessions. We become part of a large extended family.

This is the current list of cities where we meet.

Albany                     Cincinnati                  Sacramento
Harrisburg             Memphis                    Atlanta
Orlando                  Dallas                          Portland
Denver                    Raleigh                       Jacksonville                      Phoenix                  Salt Lake City             Seattle


I wanted you to see how a group of like-minded people from all over the nation support each other and change lives as they realize their financial goals. Just getting together over a meal and maybe a beer is a game-changer for some folks that work at home. It’s a joy to share our trials and our successes.

When you work at home you find that a phone call or text or even a video chat is not often enough to connect with the people that you really want to share with and work with.

Work at Home and never get stuck in traffic.

Even though working from home has great advantages as far as the economics of running your business, there are a few drawbacks. 

When Dr. Cast started the Trading Academy, he understood the pressures of being alone a big part of the day and also the benefits of working at home. So when he started the Trading Academy over 10 years ago he also started the meetup groups.

As The Trading Group has grown larger and larger the meetup groups have extended out to the closest city in a geographic area of the Traders. Now you can see from our list where the members meet each month to enjoy each other’s company and meal or just visit. 

The meetup groups are another great asset to the Trading Academy as there are none other like it in the industry. We show our support to each other, we visit, we also talked online and learn from each other. 

The social aspect of Futures Trading is very important. you will find as you grow in your trading skills and you grow your portfolio; that Futures Trading has a very large emotional aspect that must be recognized if you are to be a successful Futures Trader. 

The social aspect of the meetup groups dovetails nicely into the rest of the program whereas we have live trading instructors, we have mentors, and we have a personal liaison appointed to each member. The more experienced members also take a turn at the microphone and add to our knowledge base acting a guest speaker. 

Multiple Live Training Sessions each Business Day

With multiple live trading sessions each day, our instructors explain as they trade with a live chart in front of them. Our instructors are seasoned traders and industry experts.

As we go through each session with a trading chart open, the members can ask questions, and also the mentor will respond and teach at the same time. Our sessions are 1 or 2 hrs long and spaced out so that you can attend live training sessions day or night. 

 For those that wish to progress at a faster rate, there is also homework assigned by the mentor of that particular class.  There is so much that you can do on your own, online that will advance your training and grow your trading account. 

Your success and your progress in Futures Trading is totally dependent upon you. Some members have started live trading in as little as four weeks, some take longer and some like me it took me six months. I was not able to focus every day on my studies due to deaths in my family and personal illness.

At the present time, our 6 different sessions are live and on-line from 10 AM EST to 11:30 PM EST. The different sessions are for different levels of experience and/or specific topics such as the trading software, the software provided by your broker and various other topics.  We want you to be prepared and ready to succeed before you start live trading.  Again, we offer an end to end solution for the proper education and skill set to Trade futures.
