Trading Community

We try to make our online trading classes informative and simple, giving you the essential knowledge to become a successful trader. Trading of all forms takes time to learn, but the process doesn’t have to be tedious. That’s why we’ve done our best to get rid of the trading terminology that isn’t necessary and give you the nuts and bolts that are essentially needed. If you’re looking for solid teaching that gets right to the point, you’ve come to the right place.

Having other people understand when you’re having a bad day is nice. This industry is hard at times, and having that support to help you is invaluable. We started as a Facebook group and have evolved into a trading service, but we’ve never lost that community vibe and feel. As a stock trading community, we strive to help as many people as possible become self-sufficient and profitable traders—that’s your passion. To offer a hand-up, not a handout. 

We don’t call ourselves a community for marketing purposes. It’s who we’ve always been and always will be. So, come and join us, integrate yourself into the community, ask questions, get feedback, and most importantly, make our trading community your home. We are confident you’ll appreciate the camaraderie and all the content we give back to help you succeed.

Trading courses can work if you study and invest in yourself. It is a skill set that can be learned over time. There are no guarantees, and no trading strategy works 100% of the time. Proper discipline and good habits will be essential to develop if you want to become a successful trader. 

Online trading courses can be worth it if the education comes from a reliable company and is structured with the trader's needs in mind. Trading classes can help you overcome the learning curves of trading if you put in the effort to learn.

Trading can take 6 months to a year to learn and feel comfortable, but these results are unique. It depends on how much studying and effort you put into learning your trading style. It takes discipline and consistent practice to learn how to trade.

As others have described it, Bullish Bears is a community. All sorts of people and experience levels sharing their knowledge and encouraging one another. The BB teachers / contributors each have instruction multiple times per week, and the livestreams are recorded and kept for review and taking more notes later. Overall this is the best value I have seen online. This is not a signal pushing, self-profiting pump-n-dump type of group, though there are useful signals. Bullish Bears goal is to teach you how to see your own entries, make your own decisions, and be a successful trader. I have immensely enjoyed my time with them and am looking forward to more.

The Bullish Bears Community sets the Gold Standard for all online financial educational services. They have hours and hours of the best video training available anywhere. Actual videos of live online trading concepts recorded in real time by EXPERTS. The absolute highest level of knowledge and experience I have ever encountered. They have daily LIVE chat rooms where you can observe real traders and look over their shoulder as they teach you how they look for trade setups for options, stocks or futures. They share every detail of the trade setups and why they are taking a trade at any given level. You will learn how to acquire the skills to trade on your own and not be dependent on any "guru". Wouldn't you rather KNOW how to trade rather than to PAY someone who is here today and gone tomorrow (with your money) to BS you. You can look at fake photos of their Learjet, Lamborgini and Yacht OR do it the right way and actually LEARN how to do it yourself.

First of all thank you to the BB Team for the Virtual New Year's party last night going into the New Year. I would like to wish the BB Team and all the members a very Happy New Year 2022. I've been a member for the past few years and learned a lot from their mentoring and daily sessions as well as a vast treasure trove of information about trading the markets. Normally the information that is available here would be definitely in the upwards of thousands of dollars. The membership more than pays for itself. They stand by their motto "Pay it forward". I've upgraded my annual membership to their Lifetime membership because of the value it provides and they keep it more interesting. All the best to the BB team.
I joined the Bullish Bears in May 2021 because someone shared a YouTube video of a trading technique I was interested in learning since I was struggling learning it from somewhere else. Once I joined the community, there were even more learning opportunities from the video library, the live streaming, the BB Team along with the BB community. Whether your are a novice or experienced trader, there is a place for you at the Bullish Bears.

This is truly a team of people dedicated to helping their members understand and apply that level of understanding in the market. They are extremely interactive with their members. They have personally taken time to explain concepts to me over and over again until I actually understood the material. What I enjoy most; you are not learning just one system, you are learning systems and concepts to build your own way of thinking and trading! I'm truly grateful to Bullish Bears.


If you’ve looked for trading education elsewhere then you’ll notice that it can be very costly.

We are opposed to charging ridiculous amounts to access experience and quality information. 

That being said, our website is a great resource for traders or investors of all levels to learn about day trading stocks, futures, and options. Swing trading too! 

On our site, you will find thousands of dollars worth of free online trading courses, tutorials, and reviews.

We put all of the tools available to traders to the test and give you first-hand experience in stock trading you won’t find elsewhere.

Our content is packed with the essential knowledge that’s needed to help you to become a successful trader.

It’s important to treat day trading stocks, options, futures, and swing trading like you would with getting a professional degree, a new trade, or starting any new career.

Invest the proper time into your Trading Education and don’t try to run before you learn to crawl. Trading stocks is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s not gambling either, though there are people who treat it this way. Don’t be that person! 


The Bullish Bears team focuses on keeping things as simple as possible in our online trading courses and chat rooms. We provide our members with courses of all different trading levels and topics.

If you’re a beginner, intermediate level, or looking for expert trading knowledge…we’ve got you covered. 

We have a basic stock trading course, swing trading course, 2 day trading courses, 2 options courses, 2 candlesticks courses, and broker courses to help you get started. Free.

Just choose the course level that you’re most interested in and get started on the right path now. Become a leader, not a follower. When you’re ready you can join our chat rooms and access our Next Level training library. No rush. We’re here to help.
