Institute Data Subscription

1. Are there any restrictions on becoming a subscriber to the Institute’s Data Section?

There are no restrictions to becoming a subscriber of the Institutes Data section of the website. Anyone in the world can subscribe to the Data section. However, it does help if you have taken the Institute’s Professional Trading Masterclass (PTM) Video Series and / or the Professional FOREX Trading Masterclass (PFTM) Video Series and passed the examination(s). This is because much of the Data content that is uploaded is heavily explained in our Educational Video Series’. A thorough understanding of this will help you in your Trading and Portfolio Management objectives i.e. interpreting the Data and the releases correctly and using the information to become long term consistently profitable as a trader. Individuals that have been through the Institutes education will naturally get more out of the Data section because they have been taught how to understand and interpret the information in order for them to get the best out of the information.

If you have taken the Institutes education and have become an Institute Trader, you will be eligible for a discount when subscribing to the Data section. Please go to the following link and send us a message including your full and correct name, phone number with international dialling code and the email address you used to register on the Institute website https://www.itpm.com/contact/

2. I haven’t taken any of the Institute’s Education / Video Series. Can I become a subscriber to the Data section?

You can become a subscriber to the Data section of the website. You just need to follow the links and process your payment via PayPal. You will pay the published rate on the Institute website and you will receive automatic access to the Data section.

3. What If I have taken the Institutes Educational Video Series’ but not become an Institute Trader? Can I become a subscriber to the Institutes Data section?

You can become a subscriber to the Data section of the website. You just need to follow the links and process your payment via PayPal. You will pay the published rate on the Institute website and you will receive automatic access to the Data section.

4. Why do Institute Traders get discounted rates for the Data subscription?

This is because Institute Traders are part of the Institute Community. As part of the community, Institute Traders interact with eachother. By doing so they contribute to the community, therefore they add value back to the Community and the Institute. They have shown commitment by being educated by the Institute, becoming an Institute Trader and adding value back into the Institute Community. Therefore, Institute Traders are eligible for a discount. People who have not completed the Professional Trading Masterclass (PTM) and / or the Professional FOREX Trading Masterclass (PFTM) Video Series Video Series and made the conscious decision to NOT become an Institute Trader will not add any value back to the Institute Community and must therefore pay the published rate for Institute Data on the Institute website.

5. Once I become an Institute Trader am I obligated to subscribe to the Data section of the website?

No. Your only obligation when you become an Institute Trader is to implement what you have been taught and become consistently profitable. You can update all of your own Data yourself if you so wish. However if you believe that there is value to having this done for you, then a subscription to the Data section of the Institute website is sensible.

6. How does the Data Section add value to my Trading & Portfolio Management?

The content of the Data section of the Institute website complements our Professional Trading Masterclass (PTM) Video Series and the Professional FOREX Trading Masterclass (PFTM) Video Series content and keeps subscribers ahead of the curve by keeping all data updated in real time. The data section covers all historical and current data of indicators used by Professional Traders. The Spreadsheets also contain formatted content that is easy to understand and organised by the Institutes Statistical Analyst Christopher Quill in order to eliminate many hours of work and interpretation. The content contains over thirty datasets and indicators globally across the United States, Europe, Asia and the rest of the world every month. There are also bespoke Spreadsheets additional to that included in the Institutes Educational Video Series’ that are regularly updated. Taken together this information makes our subscribers better informed traders and decision makers.

What is the $ value of this information if I bought it myself outside the Institute?

In terms of $ value there are four ways to assess what a subscriber gets from the Data section;-

i) Sunk / Fixed Tangible Cost – Firstly there is the initial cost of all historical data. The datasets owned by the Institute are in excess of $30,000 worth of data per subscriber per year. Due to the fact we have many students, we can provide this at a much lower rate to each subscriber. Right off the bat this is a huge saving!

ii) Outsourcing – Secondly there is the “intangible” benefit / value of outsourcing your Data management back to the Institute. The Institute will be updating all of your spreadsheets and formatting / organising all of your data for you each month in an independent non bias manner. All you have to do is download the Data when the spreadsheets are released and save them in your personally organised folders. Datasets are updated as and when new numbers are released and you will be alerted by email in real time when the datasets are updated.

iii) Opportunity Cost of Time. Thirdly, if you are working full time and trading part time (as most Retail Traders are) you will often be pre-occupied in your day to day working life and sometimes struggle to maintain your own datasets and processes. The Data section will save you 15-30 hours of work per month, therefore you can concentrate on using that time on making more money in your day job. This benefit is tangible and can be worked out by simply multiplying your own average hourly rate by 15-30 hours per month then annualizing this number (multiply by 12). This is the amount of money the Data section will save you every year. Additionally you can use this freed up time to increase your trading profitability by concentrating on “earning” in the financial markets rather than getting bogged down in Data Management processes.

iv) Speed \ Portfolio Savings – Finally. All Institute Datasets are formatted and organised in a way that is easily understandable / interpreted and uploaded within an hour of important data being released. This means if you need to react to important newsflow that materially affects your portfolio but you do not know it has happened, the Data section will prompt you to react and you can do what is right for you, in a speedy and timely manner. The Data provided by the Institute could save and / or make you significant % returns per year in your portfolio.

7. How do I subscribe to the Data Section?

This is very straight forward. If you have not taken the Professional Trading Masterclass (PTM) Video Series and / or the Professional FOREX Trading Masterclass (PFTM) Video Series and you are not an Institute Trader, then all you have to do is navigate to the data section of the Institute website https://www.itpm.com/data/ – click on the “Buy Now” Button. If you are already a member of the website, log in and check out. If not, you will have to set up an account for the website then check out. At checkout, you will be redirected to PayPal where you can complete your annual subscription. You will then be re-directed to the Institute website from PayPal and you will receive automatic access.

If this does not occur automatically it is more than likely that your PayPal payment has not gone through properly and we are yet to receive the funds. The problem will be on your side. The quickest way to resolve this is to contact PayPal first to check on your payment, then follow up with a message to the Institute via the contact form of the Institute website detailing your transaction. If your payment has been fully processed then we will check your payment and that the payment has successfully cleared, then we will manually give you access to Institute Data via the backend of the Institute website.

8. Can I download the Spreadsheets / Data once the Institute has uploaded them to the Data section of the website?

Yes of course! You can download the Spreadsheets. The Spreadsheets can be viewed on all devices. As a subscriber, you can download the Spreadsheets and save them offsite into your own folders to so you can organise them personally and even use the spreadsheets and do your own work on them.

9. Do I receive notifications of Data uploads / updates?

Yes. Every spreadsheet / dataset that is uploaded generates an instant automatic notification email to your inbox. This will allow you to react to important market sensitive data in a timely manner if necessary.

10. Do I have to pay monthly or annually for the subscription?

All subscriptions are annual and the payment is a one off payment for a one year up front subscription. When logging in as a subscriber, you will see a date in the top right hand corner of the screen which shows the date that your subscription expires. You will then have to subscribe annually again once this expires by making another one year upfront payment each year, in order to receive another year’s access.
