Course 1

Course 1 Overview

 

Comprehensive 3 month course created to prepare you for a career in trading. We teach you about trading the various markets including foreign exchange, commodities and stock indices from the ground up. The course has been designed based on a similar structure to how major financial institutions educate their traders. The training is provided in different stages to guide you through the learning process to reach the target of trading on a professional level.

During the course, you will have a team of mentors, including partners within the firm, with extensive experience trading the markets, supporting you during each stage of the training. This support plays a key part in helping you to realise your full potential as a trader – it amounts to having somebody there to hold your hand and give you invaluable advice as you launch your new career in trading.

The goal for us from this trading course is to develop successful traders. Over the last few years we have had many traders who have completed the course who have gone on to secure front office trading roles at various top-tier institutions with our assistance.
