For several years now, many individual investors have come to realize, albeit slowly and painfully, that Wall Street is not on their side. Wall Street is supposed to make money for you. However, events have proven that Wall Street actually makes money off of you. Just reference Warren Buffett’s comments stating that he is disappointed in Wall Street because their revenues come from fees and not from trading profits. To quote his exact words from the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting, “There has been far, far, far, more money made by people in Wall Street through salesmanship abilities than through investment abilities.” This confirms something that we here at Investitute have known about for some time now.
The co-founders of optionMONSTER and tradeMONSTER — Jon Najarian, Pete Najarian, and Dirk Mueller-Ingrand — have decided to join forces with Ron Ianieri to launch Investitute with a common goal in mind: to help you, the individual investor, navigate the treacherous waters of the markets. In order to do this properly, they identified several areas in which investors would need to develop expertise. To do this, you must have a skill set that includes technical and fundamental analysis, option theory and strategy, and investor psychology to name a few. Based on their extensive professional experience as professional traders and educators, the founders of Investitute know that to accomplish this goal they must not only be educators and mentors, but also consumer advocates. At the outset of an educational journey into the field of handling investments in the markets, one of the biggest problems is determining who to trust…who to listen to.
There are many so-called experts and instructors that do not have the training, talent, or experience that is critically necessary to teach someone else how to invest their hard-earned money that they desperately need to secure their financial future. This situation is much too important to be entrusted with amateurs pretending to be market experts. We know that it is very difficult for a novice to determine who is an expert and who is not. This is because a novice by definition doesn’t know what they don’t know! Following a false prophet in the markets can be financially devastating. In order to combat this problem, Jon, Pete, and Ron will not only teach and train you, but they will also guide you to true industry professionals who are worthy of your trust.
The Investitute team takes pride in what we teach, how we teach it, and who we recommend for further development and honing of your skills.
We are committed to offering in-depth classes that will be taught at YOUR learning pace, not ours. These classes feature live webinars, videos, tests, and Q&A sessions, all brought to you in an online learning environment similar to e-campus instruction. In addition to theory and strategy education, we offer a group of newsletters broken down into several different styles of trading. These newsletters generate trading ideas and cut down your research time while also extending your educational experience. In the near future, Investitute will also present live events around the country that will feature carefully selected speakers designed to give you as much of their experience as possible. We also offer analytic tools like Najarian Unusual Options Activity which allow you to find your own trading opportunities and research them with the same analytic tools that Jon, Pete, Ron, and other industry professionals use for themselves.
Our goal is to give you the most complete and in-depth market training possible. We seek to ensure your experience is comparable to the best training that a professional floor trader would receive. As far as the markets are concerned, it’s a whole new world and you need to learn how to trade smarter. Welcome to the new world of trading. Welcome to Investitute!
