Start Your Trading Career the Right Way


The SMB Foundation is a structured five-week trading course. Daily lesson plans have been crafted for each trading day to teach the trading skills and trading plays necessary for a powerful trading foundation. Every minute of every day has been planned out, allowing a trader to work through the SMB Foundation like a trader would at SMB Capital. Traders are given a full two months (60 days) to finish the five-week course, which will allow traders with heavier schedules to work through the material at a pace best for them. All of this was created for our NYC proprietary traders and is now made available to you.



Develop the skills of a professional trader.

Written Lectures

Daily lesson plans have been prepared utilizing more than 200 written lectures so that you develop a powerful trading foundation for today's market. We identified what must be taught for a new trader to succeed in this market. And then we started writing. We wrote about all the trading skills and trading plays that new traders must be taught to be consistently profitable.

Classroom Lectures

Written lectures are supplemented with Classroom Lectures. You will watch videos of our Partners (Mike Bellafiore and Steve Spencer), Head Trader (GMan), and Senior Traders (JToma and others) teaching trading skills and trading plays to our new traders.

Trading Videos

We have captured our real-time trades and added audio commentary to profitable intraday setups. Imagine yourself at your trading station watching a trade captured in real time with audio commentary added from a market veteran. We will explain why we bought, why we sold, and most importantly what we were thinking.

SMB Real Time

Listen to SMB Capital trade daily. SMB traders share valuable trading information via our Live Audio Feed. Multiple trading rooms are run simultaneously by the traders on our desk. Listen to the Partners trade the market Open and Close. Or move to another call and listen to SMB Traders trade In Play stocks.

Icon
Trading Drills

SMB developed Trading Drills and Quizzes for our proprietary traders in NYC. There is a reason why professional teams scrimmage. Like a professional athlete, traders must practice under game-like conditions. You cannot just read some trading materials and then jump into the trading arena. You must drill on the trading skills necessary to compete in today's market.

Icon
Quizzes

SMB Quizzes reinforce what we teach. The SMB Foundation is a large and comprehensive training program, and we have designed the course so traders do not get lost in the material or miss the nuances of the lessons being taught. We use quizzes to summarize and focus on the most important points throughout the program.

Icon
Mentoring

The Partners and senior traders at SMB are experienced mentors, who have created a comprehensive system to develop fundamentally sound traders. While learning SMB trading skills, senior traders are accessible daily through the SMB Chat Room and the SMB Audio. One-on-one mentoring is added to guide traders through the process of building trading plays and review simulated trading.
