Forex courses provide a valuable learning opportunity for novice traders: participants gain a strong knowledge base of Forex fundamentals, they receive support and mentoring from professional Forex educators, and they’re provided with an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals embarking on currency trading careers.
If you’re considering a Forex course, you’re likely wondering:
- What exactly will I learn by attending a workshop?
- How will it benefit my trading?
The fundamentals that you learn during a workshop – like risk management and Forex trading strategies – are designed to set you up for success in the high-risk, high-reward Forex industry.
Here are just three of the fundamentals you learn that can benefit you throughout your entire trading career:
- Trading Strategy
Traders use strategies to enter and exit trades; they are also critical for winning trades consistently. A well-designed strategy will:
- Provide you with clear indicators of a breakout trend
- Offer specific rules for entering and exiting trades, and
- Protect the trader against trend reversals
Forex courses often provide traders with off-the-shelf strategies that can be put to use in live-trading situations. However, during Learn to Trade’s Learn Forex course, students work with four proven trading strategies designed by our team of professional traders.
- 180 Phase Changer – Powerful Strategy based on advanced price action
- T Wave – Cutting edge trend based trading system
- Inter Bank Radar – Institutional strategy that identifies trades with no trend filter
- Money Market Breakout – Professional intra-day high probability system
This means that upon course completion, students leave with a real understanding of how these strategies, among others, can be used to consistently win trades.
- Risk Management
Risk management can have a significant impact on your trading career. When applied properly, traders will refer to it every day to limit their exposure and ensure they risk only a small percentage of their account balances. Without an in-depth understanding of risk management, novice traders risk over-leveraging their trades and wiping out chunks of their accounts.
After taking our Learn Forex course, students leave as risk management experts with a firm grasp on what risk management is, how it is calculated, and how each trade should be properly leveraged to minimise exposure – just for starters, our students learn to minimise risk to 2% on each trade!
- Trading Technology
Forex trading takes place 24 hours each day, and it’s driven by technology – anyone with access to the Internet and trading software can make money in Forex.
During our Learn Forex course, participants often have the chance to work hands-on with Forex technology and learn how to automate trades, enter and exit trades, and how to analyse price movements using Forex software.
