Level of logic required for acceptance into the Become a Trader CIT USA program

At the CIT, we welcome applicants coming from any background, because there is no standard profile for success in market finance.

Even so, minimal initial skills are required, notably in the subject of logical reasoning, which is a necessary skill for those who wish to begin learning binary trading techniques.

A Logic Aptitude Test (LAT) created exclusively for the CIT ensures that the applicant possesses the basic logical reasoning skills necessary to succeed in market finance.

Format of the LAT test

  • Duration: 60 minutes
  • Multiple Choice Format
  • 100 questions
  • Score out of 300 points (Correct response= +3/ No response= 0/ Incorrect response= -1)

Required Score

  • To be accepted into the program, an applicant must obtain a minimum score of 150/300 points.  Scores will be curved based on the highest score obtained within the group of applicants.


  • Refer to the calendar for practical details on the exam schedule
