IMMERSIVE TRADER TRAINING LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Our intensive 8-week Career Training Programme is delivered from one of the most successful trading floors in Europe. It offers a unique, cutting edge Trading Course carried out in an immersive learning environment and is focused on a dynamic skill development protocol for trading strategy development.
DEVELOP YOUR TRADING CAREER ALONGSIDE ELITE PERFORMERS
The Career Programme is the product of the collective knowledge and experience of our elite AXIA traders and it constantly evolves with the opportunity landscape of the market. As a trainee you will develop a methodology modeled on our elite traders performance routines.
Methodologies and trader processes FOR developing your trading edge
The Training Programme ensures that graduate traders gain a solid development framework and professional approach to multiple trading strategies in both technical execution and global macro event trading.
WEEK 1 & 2 – Introduction to Futures Trading
The first 2 weeks of the Career Training Programme focus purely on providing a solid basis and theoretical framework for all trainee traders. We assume, in this part of the training, the trainee trader has no previous experience in futures trading. These first 2 weeks bring every trader up to the same level of expertise on all the aspects of global futures trading. It’s an intensive 2-week introductory training before the programme shifts into 5th gear in the final two stages of development.
WEEK 3 – Order Flow Training
WEEK 4 – Profile Pattern Recognition & Execution
WEEK 5 – Macro & Geopolitical Strategies Training
Trading is purely a skill pursuit to achieve the mastery required to become consistently profitable. For this reason 90% of the training is geared around skill development and execution. Axia Futures has an extensive and rigorous skill development training protocol. The foundation of the training is based on a cognitive framework of awareness, practice, feedback and adjustment in our three core competencies of Order Flow, Volume Profiling and Macro Geopolitical event trading opportunities.
WEEK 6 – Elite Edge Development
WEEK 7 – Elite Trader Routine
WEEK 8 – Elite Market Pattern Development
This part of the training is an intensive all-encompassing development process where the student is immersed in the experience of being a professional trader. Every single day, the trainee is benchmarked against the performances of our Senior and Elite traders. After each trading session the trainee’s performance and trading strategies are reconciled with the performance and opportunity profile of the session. This constant feedback loop has one aim – to rapidly accelerate a student’s understanding of the opportunity landscape presented in the day.
During the last couple of weeks of the training, all our trainee traders are exposed to the full spectrum of our traders - from our new live account traders to the more senior traders, and then to a selection of our elite traders. This is for all trainees to gain a deeper understanding of the approaches and most importantly of the developmental timeline and challenges a trader will face along his/her trading journey. It also gives trainees the opportunity to speak to and get to know all our traders.
The course is delivered by our Head Trainer Richard Bailey who has over 10 years of experience as a Futures trader, focusing his trading activity on multiple asset classes and trade strategies. Richard also leads the Axia Futures technical analysis team and is responsible for generating structured macro event strategies for all European Central Bank meetings for the London trading team. During the delivery of the entire 8-week intensive training programme our trainees are also exposed to professional AXIA Traders and mentors with a wealth of market experience. Alex Haywood, who leads the incredibly successful London Trading Team and who has a track record of training and building some of the top futures traders in Europe, provides key strategy and development sessions for the trainees during the programme. Finally, all trainees are exposed to all our professional Mentored Trader sessions led by Brannigan Barrett. In short, all our trainees are exposed to not only all the elements of futures trading but to all our elite performing traders through our weekly elite trader sessions.
“To be the best, surround yourself with the best.”
Klark - July 2017 Career Programme
“My favourite element of the course is that you have a professional trader who is trading with you live. You can ask him questions while the markets are going on, he tells you what he’s doing and what he’s thinking, and having that constant feedback really solidifies the learning."
Shane - July 2017 Career Programme
“You can use the simulator and trade from home alone but when you are working around professionals you get an idea of what they do and this takes away the illusion that this game is easy. You see how dedicated they are, their ethics and how they work. The experience is invaluable."
Jake - September 2017 Career Programme
“We've met a lot of the traders so far... It's been valuable to understand their development journey and strategies they use. I think another thing that has been driven home is the amount of different ways there are to take money out of the market."

For students who wish to attend the course remotely, our Career Training Programme is delivered in an immersive Live Streaming learning environment. The trainees have live access to the interactive London classroom sessions. By using and leveraging key technology we ensure that the online training provides a visually powerful and interactive environment so that trainees feel as if they are on one of our trading floors. This enhances and creates a rich trader development experience for those not able to train with us in-house.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
As there is a limited number of places for the course, we reserve places on a first-come, first-served basis. If you want to secure your place you can do it with a non-refundable deposit via the installment option. However, your place is automatically secured if you select the discount full upfront payment.
For the first 5 weeks of the course, the classroom sessions are divided into a morning and an afternoon session:
Morning: 10am - 12noon
Afternoon: 1pm - 3pm
From week 2 to 5 you will be given daily drills in the live markets both during European cash hours and afternoon US open market sessions. There will be price ladder and technical drills before the morning session between 6.30am - 9.30am and in the afternoon between 3.30pm - 4.30pm. These times will vary according to market conditions and volatility.
From week 6 onwards, the fully immersive sessions are entire trading days between 6.30am - 4.30pm.
All the above are UK times.
We provide both an installment option and a discounted pay-all-upfront option.
All trading and charting platforms, including live market data, are included in the course. There are no additional costs during the course.
We suggest that you try your very best to attend every session to gain the most from your learning experience and be given the opportunity to ask questions on subjects you may be challenged on. However, if you do miss any session or day then you can catch up by watching the recorded session on the AXIA website learning portal. The course recordings are uploaded at the end of each training session. You can catch up on all sessions in your own time or if the time zone you are in does not accommodate for you to attend all the live sessions.
We like to keep each group small and focused so as to make the learning as immersive as possible whilst providing our senior Trader Mentors and Trainers with a core group of students that receive close attention in their development. For the in-house course we only take a maximum of 8 students at a time, and only 10 students for the online training.
The course is fully interactive and the live chat rooms give you full access to put questions to all the trainers and mentors and also to all the other students on the course, both in-house and online, so there is a strong sense of community learning.
The training room is located next to the trading floor, separated by a glass partition. This setup allows our students to feel the energy of the trading floor and also to have the chance to speak to all our traders after market hours to further accelerate their immersive learning experience.
After the training, for you to further consolidate your intensive learning experience, we give you full access to all the daily classroom recorded sessions for a further month. You are also given access to the Live Streaming Premium Membership Service. You also become an AXIA alumni trader which means you are entitled to discounted prices for any career training weeks of future career programmes.
After the completion of the course, we provide both in-house and online students access to the learning and development portal for another month so that they can review all the learning and training material, including all the course recordings, to further consolidate the 8-week learning. Thereafter, we suggest you practise a further 4-8 weeks on a Simulator price ladder platform that you can obtain. If you then wish to open a trading account, we can provide you with the live account setup facilities through one of our two clearing partners, depending on the route you wish to take - either a retail account or a professional account.
The main difference is the fixed and variable cost elements. The retail account has much lower fixed costs with regard to monthly platform costs and exchange data, whereas the professional account has much lower transactional costs (i.e. trading commissions) with higher fixed costs. So the determining factor as to which account to open, is your level of experience and market activity. With the professional account there is a profit split due to the level of margin provided. All trainees are fully briefed on the options, after the training. If your are interested to find out more now, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes. Once you have completed the course, Axia Futures provides the option to trade with one of our reputable clearing partners at extremely competitive rates for day traders.
We are very selective in choosing potential traders to be financially backed by either our senior traders or our clearing partners after receiving our recommendation. These are the two primary methods of receiving backing on one of our trading floors. We provide no guarantee that after you complete the course we will choose you for further observation. However, if you demonstrate high market aptitude, resilience, ability to take risk and are active as a trader whilst maintaining exceptional money management techniques using leverage in the correct circumstances and setups, then we are always extremely interested in such potential trading candidates. There are no set requirements; we will consider students for further observation post course completion based on the feedback from the Head Trainer and Mentors from each training course. Then the students who have been selected will be asked to come to our trading floor for a further 8 weeks of observation.
Unfortunately we do not back traders who are not training physically on our premises. Part of the development and observation is to see the trader’s daily commitment and routine, something that we are not able to do if he/she is not on our premises.
