FAQ

What is Ira Epstein's Charting Course?

Ira Epstein’s Charting Course

The course is designed to teach the concepts of:

  • Swinglines
  • Moving Averages
  • Bollinger Bands
  • Slow Stochastics

As our students view our videos, they will see how each chapter builds on the prior one, teaching them how to combine the above indicators together to formulate a trading strategy the takes into account:

  • Trends
  • Dollar Risk
  • Profit Objectives

I believe in teaching by showing what I do and having my students do the same thing. As they do “the same thing” they start understanding why they’re doing what they’re doing and how these concepts work.

Can I download the course to my computer?

Internet Connectivity

The chapters and access to the course are only available via internet connection. There is no CD or DVD of the course available.

The rationale behind this setup in part has to do with charting software that requires an internet connection along with student internet access to Ira’s Morning Subscriber Video, a series of Daily Videos and access to his live Webinar which all require internet connectivity.

The computer you initially use to access the course with is the one that will be registered to view the videos.

If you need additional computer access, contact us at 866-973-2077 or write iepstein@linnllc.com

Will purchasers of the course receive anything via regular post mail?

No. Unlike past courses where we had to ship out material and charge a shipping and handling fee, by our moving to an online course format we are able to save you both time and money.

Money is saved via no charge for handling or postage, which was expensive. Time is saved as course access takes place once you receive your User ID and Password along with instructions on how to access the webpage where course resides.

The course is designed to be completed in at most, a couple of weeks. Those who have the time can complete it in but a couple of days. However, speed is not the goal. Learning is the goal which means repetition is needed to embed our concepts into your thinking.

At the end of 30-days, additional time can be purchased online:
