Get a professional trading education from an institutional Futures trader with 15 years of experience.
The stats are clear – over 90% of traders will fail.
That’s because most traders do not have a proven framework for trading profitably.
This elite-level course was developed on a proprietary trading desk with real capital on the line.
If your goal is to trade professionally, join a proprietary trade desk or start your own fund, this course is for you.
Using in-depth video lectures, you’ll learn, in detail, the proprietary strategies, setups, and processes to trade profitably and with consistency at the institutional level.
The strategies taught in this course are used every day to generate profits for the Apteros Trade Desk.
The course and methodology are collectively referred to as NADRO, an acronym for Narrative, Acceptance, Developing Value, Rhythm, and Order Flow; the essential pieces to a holistic short(er) term trading approach.

I just finished the Stats of my first monthly review using NARDO – I nearly can’t believe it! In August I performed with an 8,6 Risk-Return factor, a 2,9 R/R, and a Hitrate of 40% trading only Crude Oil. Since I started Trading a year ago, I have never been green for even two weeks. I thank you for sharing your methodology, your Edge (!), and your wisdom so much. You are teaching pure gold to the world!
– Moses, NADRO student
Merritt has completely changed my outlook and methodology for day trading futures. I have learned more from him than anybody else about how markets work. He is a fantastic teacher and his NADRO methodology has edge.
