What the SMB Foundation is not, is a simple knowledge based program that asks traders to memorize technical patterns, indicators, and trading plays found in countless books and programs online. The hard truth is that much of these technical patterns, indicators, and trading plays are worthless without the trading skills necessary to trade them effectively.
Statistically, trading skills take years of experience and lost money to develop, but SMB Capital reduces this learning curve by creating a demanding curriculum focused on trading skills, followed by the development and execution of trading plays that work best for the trainee.

SMB – Reading The Tape
SMB Training’s Reading the Tape is a guide to learning the critical talent of tape reading in order to become an expert trader. It is intended for novice, emerging, and seasoned traders. Reading the Tape enables traders to ascertain the most likely direction of a stock’s future move by studying bids, offers, and prints. This is the primary indication that the most successful active traders utilize to trade effectively.
The course Reading the Tape (RTT) provides a fundamental view of the market, focusing on supply and demand, in order to help you get an edge as an intraday trader. When reading the tape, you may tell if a stock is going to move higher or down from its current price by carefully examining the bids, offers, and prints. This capacity to predict a stock’s most likely future move is frequently missing from charts, as charts are a lagging indicator. RTT is a critical ability that all intraday traders must learn.
The majority of new and emerging traders begin their trading careers by learning technical analysis and a little fundamental analysis. As a result, they trade without fully developed trading abilities. Reading The Tape is a skill that will provide you with a comprehensive picture of your trading abilities, as well as a strategy that great traders have employed since markets began.
Through SMB Training’s Reading the Tape program, you will get written lectures from the head trader and partners, as well as real-world Reading the Tape trading examples. These written courses will provide you with the framework for mastering this critical skill. Additionally, the course allows you to see dozens of recordings of actual transactions with voiceover explaining how to Read the Tape.
Additionally, Reading the Tape from SMB Training teaches you how to use the most essential instrument used by the most active intraday traders to enter at better prices and increase your risk/reward ratio. Also, you will understand how to identify trades on the tape that are not visible on charts and how to build the required abilities to participate in the most turbulent markets and equities. Serious learning will assist you in increasing your trading consistency and significantly improving your trading skills.
