Understanding the basics of how we interpret the market and use that interpretation to enter and exit trades is a prerequisite for entry into this course.  You must have taken the Styx Trade Foundations Course before enrolling in this course


The course will run 10 weeks. During the course you will work towards building an understanding of the market participants, their agendas, when they are most likely to engage, how to be prepared in advance, how to view markets as businesses, and how to trade with the monetary flows.

You will gain access to proprietary indicators for Sierra Chart that we have built that will aid you in the process of building your understanding of and identifying the market participants and the monetary flows.

    I would like to thank Jon. He took me to the next level. Through the Foundation course, I already had advanced knowledge of the rules of market dynamics and our largest market participants.
    Regarding the Advanced Course, I already had the privilege of learning from market makers in the past. But the options traders’ theta/gamma issue, as I call it, is bigger and more present in the futures markets than you think. Jon took me to the next level here. The training is so coherent, complete and understandable.
    With this course I am able to make trades without asking myself the question “What if?” Just without any worries. This has given me the ability to trade stress-free. Jon’s willingness to help traders in need, rounds him off as a great and competent coach. What a blessing for me.
