Special Focus Classes

In addition to our Core Education, DTI also offers specialty classes focused on specific topics. These classes may be taken individually; however, we recommend taking them after you've enrolled in at least one Core Education course. Once you've begun the core curriculum, these courses can be added to supplement your understanding of our method and allow you to learn more about topics of particular interest.

Key Numbers Class

One of the 3 essential components of the DTI method is understanding key numbers comprised of pivots, support, and resistance. These numbers define the market. The first step of the key numbers class is to break down the seemingly complex arrangement of market numbers in order to identify which numbers are key in helping to determine whether to be long, short, or out of the market.

After building that solid foundation, the class expands upon this understanding by using key numbers both in real-time market trading and in preparation for upcoming market opportunities.

This class taught by long-time DTI instructor Chuck Crow is offered twice per quarter primarily online but also on-site at our student facility in Mobile, AL upon the request of more than one student. The 2-day class is generally held on Thursday and Friday from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. Central.

Upcoming class dates for 2014 are as follows:

  • November 13-14
  • December 18-19

Prerequisite: A student should be enrolled in at least the Level 2 Core Education class before taking this class.

Testimonial: I have taken some great courses at DTI but one of the gems of the DTI program is Chuck Crow's "Key Numbers" class. In his class I like to think that he taught me the "language" of the market, giving me an invaluable tool in my trading tool kit. Chuck views and teaches about future indexes however his work is transferable to any market.

His studies are based on the identification of key numbers, providing insights into: future support/resistant levels; market patterns and time frames; trends; and sticky numbers. He also talks about unique and broader based theories of the market and determining probable moves.

His methodology is consistent, reliable and useable in all time frames and trading periods and most important of all transferable to any student of the market (that's you and me). If the course is not enough, Chuck publishes for his students 2 number packed data sheets daily on future markets which I personally use every day to set up for my futures and equity trades.

In summary the great part of Chuck's program is that he teaches you how to be him in easy understandable terms, or put a better way, do what he does in preparing his daily newsletters based on the market you choose to trade and explore.
