Richard D. Wyckoff Tape Reading and Active Trading Course


The complete Tape Reading and Active Trading Program is made up of one online volume and 10 recorded lectures.

The online volume contains 13 study sections (sometimes called assignments or lessons) and 6 chart studies.

Each study section is a short programmed unit: it contains the discussion material, a summary of the important points in that section, and a short self-grading quiz.

Our online course also includes:

  • 60 days access to our “Pulse of the Market” Charting Software ($100 value)
  • 60 days access to our private Discord channel! ($80 value)

This has been planned so that you can complete almost any unit in one evening — a few hours — of a truly enjoyable and exciting learning experience. Follow these directions for a truly effective learning of the technique for trading the intra-day 3 to 5 point moves.



Course Directions
To master the principles which are the heart of the Active Trading program, we suggest you skim the entire text completely through the first time without interruption — Table of Contents, Text, Important Points, Self-Quiz Tests, Chart Studies — to “get the feel of the material.”

Your next reading of the text should be thorough and cover all of the material — from beginning to end. Underline definitions and key sentences as you proceed. Make notes of each item you want to remember, or ask about.

This reading should include a very careful study of the charts, text and related cross references. It should also include a review of the Important Points, the Self-Quiz tests, practice on each of the principles, with actual charting projects and interpretation of the data compiled for the stocks included in the text.

In addition to the Important Points(or summary) for review of the important principles at the end of each section, we have included a Self-Quiz.

The Self-Quiz in each section is a short test you can complete in a matter of minutes. This is a check on your understanding of a given subject. They are automatically graded and you must get a score of 70% to pass.

Once you have completed the course you will also receive 60 days complimentary access to our charting software, and also 60 days to our private Discord channel where you will have access to our community as well as stock ideas from our staff.

As you proceed in your studies, whenever have a question to ask or are in need of supplies simply call or email us at
