Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Donald Williams?

In the life of Donald Williams, all roads lead to trading. Today he’s the face and force of The Trading University. Learn more about him here:

Why should I trust Donald?

Simply put, you shouldn’t. As a matter of fact, we don’t think you should trust any of the “trading” gurus out there… until they have earned your trust. Donald and the entire team at TTU want to earn the right to your trust.

I've heard Donald's screen is hard to follow

We got that feedback from some of our members, so thanks to an update on our trading room system, Donald is now able to share his normal screen, as well as a smaller portion of it, where things are very clear. This is what it usually looks like:

Do I need to be connected all day?

Simple answer, no. We have an app for iOS and Android where you can get every notification. Most importantly, one could say, we have a schedule posted and updated on a weekly basis on when things are happening, so you can always connect to the trading room for those times.

How do I get your alerts?

We don’t believe in alerts. We think that each person needs to have their own plans to trade. Having said that we have an “Alerts” section on our trading room, where our Faculty posts their ideas and what we call Live Opportunities for Learning, or LOL. You get these on your phone via our app.

I haven't been successful with other services, what is different with you guys?

We have lots of members that were in that position, having unsuccessfully tried many other services. We tell it like it is. Trading is not easy and takes lots of work to master. We are here for you, but you have to do the work. We’ll answer questions all day, every day, but you still need to ask those questions.

How long will it take for me to become a profitable trader?

Our biggest emphasis is on Education and hard work. We don’t believe in giving people the fish, but in teaching people how to fish. The question to that answer is, “how hard are you willing to work?”. We will give you all the tools and support you need, but you still need to do the work.

Who else is part of TTU apart from Donald?

From the get-go, we launched The Trading University with the intention to level our students up to eventually become Faculty. At this point in time, we have a whole team of Faculty and Faculty assistants that are in the room on a daily basis helping others and sharing what they are doing in the market.

Is The Trading University for me?

If you are looking for a service that is only going to give you alerts, then we are not for you. If you are not willing or able to put in the time to really learn how to trade, then we are not for you. If you are looking to turn $500 into $25,000 within a few weeks, only spending 5 mins per day, then we are definitely not for you.

Why is there a 14-day Free Trial?

Simply put, we want to give people the opportunity to see if we are the right fit for them. What better way than to come, learn and trade with us for a couple of weeks

What happens after the 14-day Free Trial?

After the 14-day free trial, your Credit Card will be charged for one month. After that, your Credit Card will be charged each month.

How do I cancel my 14-day Free Trial?

Send us an email or contact us via our support chat before your 14-days are up.
