Coaching & Educators

Like any skill or profession, becoming a successful, consistent and profitable trader takes understanding, time, practise and discipline. Trading software and education is full of vendors making wild claims while shrouding their products and methods in mysterious terms and jargon. This has led to widespread cynicism of indicator vendors and trading educators.

At emoji trading we believe in helping clients understand order flow from first principles and transparency of information. With this foundation knowledge you can choose if and how to apply indicators to make your life easier. They are not magic buy/sell arrows, rather, they can help visualize events you may miss or keep track of levels and events that are too difficult to follow as a human. 

Our approach to coaching and classroom training is to help make this foundation knowledge second nature so you can safely explore and develop as a trader equipped with fundamental knowledge and trading rules. We can equip you with ‘from first principles’ understanding of order flow and market structure, help you develop consistent day trading plans and guide you through potential sticking points and psychological issues. We can share knowledge, guide you how to apply it, help you use tools for efficiency and agitate your sticking points. What we can’t do is guarantee that you can successfully put all of this together consistently and with discipline. That is your skill to develop in this profession.

In addition to our own training courses and private 1:1 coaching, we regularly work and collaborate on order flow with the other well-regarded order flow educators listed below and are happy to recommend them. No one of us is ‘right’ – we each have different angles, styles, favoured markets, trading approaches, first languages and time zones!

We encourage you to review all of us to see who is ‘right’ for your needs. We have no hesitation recommending these educators and coaches below alongside our own coaching and training offers:
