New to trading, but afraid of making grave mistakes starting out? Richard Gates of Spartan Trades can help. He is one of the top online trading mentors. With over ten years of investing experience and five specifically in day trading, he is working to help others experiment and learn without the trial and error he had to go through when he first began. “I lost a lot when I first started, just like most traders, because I didn’t have a mentor, so I want to teach people how to avoid the same mistakes I did.”
Gates has built a trading community of like-minded, focused individuals that grow, learn, discuss, and bounce ideas off of each other. With his programs, there are options to connect, learn, and have any question answered so that each member has the knowledge and ability to implement his strategies for trading. There are three programs that he offers so far.
For access to the Spartan Trades discord server, there is a $79 monthly fee or bi-yearly and yearly fee options that gives a client access to a group chat of like-minded individuals that are there to learn. This allows for a more cohesive learning unit where trolling, hate speech, or inappropriate call outs are not tolerated.
In the Discord chat, there is a streamlined approach to “watching” stocks and discussion on finding patterns and letting the client decide what they want to take from that chat session. Upon signing up, the user gains access to a multi-hour training program that teaches strategies that members can implement in their own trading ventures.
The Higher Spartan program is the second option for those wanting more insight into everything that Gates does for the discord server and a more in-depth perspective into trading for those that have some experience. It is a week-long program where the client will learn how the watchlist tickers are picked, how to look for setups, plus what constitutes a great setup.
Additionally, they will learn how to adjust to market conditions in the morning, which tickers that are being eyed depending on the day and why, and have full access to ask any questions about trading during that time. This mentorship program allows members to work with Gates twice a day (once in the morning and once in the afternoon) on a live screen share session where they can analyze charts and they learn the process for choosing the watchlist stocks that he chooses as well as, what constitutes a high probability setup.
Members will be classed up with three of their peers. The groups are small and will stay that way so that they can be individually mentored.
For the last option, the Higher Spartan Program, is a complete course on trading that is 272 pages long and includes over eight hours of video content. It teaches everything that Gates knows from a technical standpoint from how to start trading to strategies that are used for pattern recognition.
Members can begin with Masterclass Series 1 and work their way through to Masterclass Series 6. The series is cumulative, so members will be referencing back to strategies taught in the beginning as you advance forward. For this reason, it is recommended that they read the series in its entirety, from beginning to end. Included with the written content is a video list with links to every single video included in the series.
At the end of the video list, there will be an extras section with hours worth of content! The videos are made to supplement the reading, not replace it. So be sure to review the text in each section prior to watching the videos for a complete understanding of the concepts and strategies taught.
“I learned a lot through experience. I didn’t have a mentor when I was learning to trade and I feel that a lot of my early mistakes could have been avoided had I had someone to guide me along the way,” Richard explains.
“After finding what works for me through years of trial and error, I finally figured out a system that I can follow consistently and have since been sharing it with followers on my Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube. I have been doing this for years and have a solid base. Now I feel that it is time to try to reach more people with this information.” In just a few years, his discord chat server has over 2,000 members and counting.
Richard’s invaluable knowledge is allowing people from all over to access his resources and training online so that they can implement his strategies into their own trading and succeed. “I average an eighty percent win ratio on my daily watchlists that I put out for my team of over 2000 members,” he says. This alone is enough to want to sign up for his programs.
