Timeless Trading Techniques

Timeless Trading Techniques is a training course designed to teach you to navigate the financial markets with confidence.

Timeless means that you will learn knowedge from the masters of trading of the last century. You will be astonished at how strongly this applies to all modern financial markets. This will be combined with more modern techniques that build on this unique approach to mastering the markets.

Timeless also means the training is applicable to all asset clases and in all timeframes, from weekly down to 1 minute and less.


Here is a short 2 minute video telling you a little more about the course, why I offer the training, and what you can expect to learn.

This training will help you ...

In this course, Safdar Alam will help you learn about the financial markets, and how to learn to trade with confidence.

Online trading is now becoming a very popular concept, as people are now more interested in opportunities to earn an income online. The motivation may be to supplement your income, or be more in control of your time and finances. With fintech development, it is now easier than ever to try out trading and see if this activity can be suitable for you.

However, trading is not for everyone - those who jump in without adequate preparation will find that it is much easier to lose money than to make profit. Indeed, many brokers report that 70%-80% of the clients lose money.

That is why I designed this course - to provide a structured and educated way for people to enter the trading market with confidence. As well as the difficulties posed by the markets themselves, online trading has, unfortunately, become a very popular area for scams and those trying to take your money dishonestly.

With my reputation in the financial markets built on integrity, working for some of the largest investment banks in the world, my commitment to you is total - I confidently stake my reputation on the quality of training and services I will provide for you.

Be careful of those making promises!

I make no financial promises at all

No get rich quick schemes

No "double your money" within a week, or a month, or any time frame

No secret signals that will make you a millionaire

I will never request any money from you (apart from the cost of registering the course)

The only promises I make are as follows:

I will teach you how the markets work

I will show you how to analyse the markets, with no indicators, based on a deep understanding of the dynamics of the markets and also human psychology that drives the market movements in price

You will have to study and work quite hard to learn the basics!

You will have to spend time practicing and implementing what you learn

It will take you several months to learn basic competence in the markets

And I will be here to train and guide you along the way


Upon registering, you will have immediate access to a course of 10 videos that will introduce the financial markets and aspects fo trading.

The course is delivered by a further series of training videos covering all the key topics outlined below. This enables you to  progress at  your own pace to consolidate your understanding.

You will also be able to attend live Webinars to ask any questions on the course, and to improve your learning and understanding of any topics.

In addition, you will have access to a forum of other attendees, where you can discuss ideas, and interact on a daily basis.

"Personally I think so far the trading course is excellent. I can easily understand the videos that you provide. I learned a lot about how to trade and how the smart money operates and manipulates on the major key levels. Getting knowledge about ways to take advantage of the market structure during trading without involving too much risk. Also learning how to look for the setup on lower time frame according to major trend in the market." Danial

"The videos and webinars on trading were very interesting and informative. Being a finance person myself I thought they will be about something I already know, but they introduced me to a whole new dimension. The concepts on how the market works, how it reacts, how to read the charts, when should we look for trades and most importantly when not to were amazing. Now I crave to know even more." M Aslam

"Though I know what trading is, I had no idea what it's like to trade. With no prior knowledge, I would say the first 10 basic lectures that you shared are quite helpful for me to be able to follow what you were explaining during the webinar. I'm far from being able to start trading but after the course, I would say I have grasped the idea on the structure of strategical trading, how expert sees the graph, and I believe if I were to go all out and start trading, with this foundation I am able to find things that I need to know and start from there." S. Shariff

"In terms of structure, trendlines, and identifying key levels, your explanation is very clear and easily understood

Your webinars definitely helped me enhanced initial understanding from the videos." Kay


"...the basic thing I have learned is how to read a chart. I was completely blind about trading and about the green and red charts. Other than that, what you taught us so far, is really helpful to understand more about the market itself. And also, I really appreciate on how you deliver this course, because I can understand what you said completely, such as without using difficult term to understand, that really helps me a lot..." N

"I think you are doing a great job teaching and explaining trading to us. Surely i still need to learn more but i think you help me so much in trying to understand introduction to trading considering i have zero knowledge before. Your explanation are compact with graph and all. I also took notes during all session and revise it on my own. Your videos are all helpfull. I have nothing much to say but you did an excellent job and also thank you."  NS Mohamed

Oder vielleicht hast du sogar Lust kleine Konversationskurse zu leiten? Dann lass uns reden :-) Schicke mir deine Bewerbung und erzähle mir, was so deine Vision für die Zukunft ist - damit meine ich nicht so ein formelles Schreiben, sondern wirklich deine Geschichte und Motivation, die dich zum Online-unterrichten bewegt hat.

Deutsch lernen

Wie kann ich mein Deutsch verbessern?

Es gibt NICHT DIE EINE Methode für JEDEN. Deshalb muss ich dich besser kennenlernen, bevor ich dir helfen kann. Erzähl mir:

  1. Warum lernst du Deutsch? Für deinen Beruf? Für die Familie? Als Hobby?
  2. Was ist dein Ziel? Machst du das einfach für dich? Oder wirst du eine Prüfung ablegen?
  3. Wie gut kannst du schon Deutsch?
  4. Womit genau hast du Schwierigkeiten?
  5. Willst du alles verbessern oder nur konkrete Fertigkeiten, wie z.B. das Hörverstehen oder die Aussprache?

    Je mehr du mir von dir erzählst, desto besser kann ich dich beraten.

Die E-Books können Sie als PDF herunterladen.
Um sie auf Kindle lesen zu können, müssen sie:
1) das PDF an Ihre Kindle-Email-Adresse senden (Die Adresse erfahren Sie beispielsweise in ihrem Amazon-Konto unter "Mein Kindle".) 2) In die Betreffzeile der Email geben die den Begriff "convert" ein. Dann verwandelt der Kindle die Datei automatisch in ein für ihn gängiges Format.
