Socrates Platform Training


This session was a moderated panel format designed to share information and perspectives on a wide array of topics related to the Socrates platform. The session starts with a “general overview” of the platform, description of the models, features and different information and features available at each membership level – providing a stepping stone of sorts for those new to the platform, the models or would otherwise generally consider themselves a “beginner”. For those who consider themselves more along the lines of an “intermediate” or “advanced” user, the session also shares some techniques by panelist Erwin Pletsch using Reversals and Arrays which flow from the Socrates research platform and available in the Pro level membership. This segment is intended for users who have an understanding of what Reversals and Arrays are already, and ideally have experience and a comfort level incorporating them into their own market research and strategies.

Anyone considering using the models and information within Socrates platform, as well as any techniques discussed within this or any other training sessions or materials should have experience already with investing and/or trading and are comfortable with concepts, methods, considerations and risks associated with investing and trading. It is also helpful for those to have some understanding and experience with cyclical and technical market analysis techniques and tools.

Please note the slides provided are a bit more comprehensive than some of those presented at the live session – these are intended to be used supplemental to the video which we hope helps fill in any gaps of what didn’t make it to the live presentation.
