This two-day programme gives you a hands-on introduction to the world of trading financial markets, with particular focus on hedging of currencies, commodities and major indices. The programme will particularly suit those who have limited understanding of the financial markets and are looking to kick start their knowledge discovery.

The programme requires no prior knowledge of trading or financial markets since we start with a beginners guide to financial markets and work from the bottom up. The programme then moves on to look at a day in the life of a trader, before moving into an overview of fundamental and technical analysis and evaluation of macro-economic data releases. We also look at topic of trading psychology and examine the effects this can have on trading performance. You will be introduced to live markets and be encouraged to trade on a simulated account whilst being supported by the team.

All of our lecturers and mentors are experienced traders who will pass on their knowledge during the academic and practical sessions. Through this programme you will gain access to our trading community as well as on-going support and career advice if you intend to venture further in the financial world.

The tutors are very accommodating, professional and happy to sit down whenever you want. I have noticed a definite improvement in my trading from my time here.
