Get a quick overview of what our Forex and stock trading course entails.
This is the initial stage of our trading course that provides you with the fundamentals of understanding how forex works, how profit is made with real-life examples and how you can buy and sell a currency pair.
This section of the course will also give you a deeper understanding of what trading is. We will cover the fundamentals of trading and how to become a successful trader.
Forex Vs. Stock Trading
Although forex trading and stock trading are similar from an outer perspective, there are fundamental differences between the two.
The most significant difference between them is what is being traded. In the forex market, you are trading currencies against one another, however, in the stock market, you are trading shares in businesses.
Of course, there are many other key points where they differ, which we will outline in the introductory stage of our course.
Learn the power of compounding and forecast your success by calculating your exponential growth.
Most of our course students choose to start with a relatively small trading account. For this reason, we teach an effective method of compounding and present real-world examples including results from previous clients who have compounded their account throughout their trading journey.
We believe understanding the potential of compounding can be largely motivating for new traders to become successful traders.

Having a relationship with high-skilled developers, that manage bespoke e-learning platforms, has enabled us to introduce, what we believe to be, an industry blowing educational portal, taking your Forex trading course to an entirely new level.
It can be extremely frustrating to work outside of classroom environments, and even more frustrating if you are having to continuously navigate on a platform that is not user friendly. Our platform has been sculpted based on feedback from our clients and up until today we still value and appreciate any feedback, small or big, that is given to us.
Forex brokers are middlemen between the retail trader and the larger financial institutes. In simpler terms, a broker is just a connection to help you buy or sell whichever currency you want. Brokers can profit from charging a commission when you open or close a trade or by applying a small markup between the buying and selling prices, this is known as the spread. There are also other less common systems brokers use to generate profit.
It’s very important to understand which brokers are reliable and which are not. We will teach you the steps to undertake to ensure the credibility of a broker.
Margin Trading & Risk Management
We show you how to maximise the potential of using leverage to enhance your profitability. The simple definition of margin trading is trading on a loan. This allows you to place trades that are larger than your account balance accommodates. Our students learn how to avoid “margin calls” or risking too much of their capital.
Risk management refers to a few components of trading, such as the risk to reward ratio per trade, what the total risk is for each position and other key pieces that puzzle together to help preserve your capital. Risk management is just as crucial as having a winning trading strategy. This is because there are a plethora of reasons why the market may fall against you.
The financial market is impacted greatly by both national and international events. As traders, it is very important to be able to determine the possible impact the news releases could have on the markets.
For example, if Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) statistics are scheduled for a particular day, it is crucial to understand the level of volatility that could be present and which currency pairs it could have a direct impact on. Some traders prefer to trade the news whilst other traders like to avoid the uncertainty and steer well away from these events.
Technical Analysis Trading
Technical analysis is the art of predicting market movements using mathematical factors. These include the use of indicators, such as RSI (Relative Strength Index), SMA (Simple Moving Average), EMA (Exponential Moving Average) amongst many more.
Aside from the utilization of indicators, our course teaches how to determine future price using previous price action and candlestick patterns as well as other techniques.
This type of trading can involve technical tools such as using various technical indicators, price action strategies and identifying Japanese candlestick patterns in addition to numerous others.
Japanese candlesticks are a chart type amidst line charts, bar charts and more. What makes Japanese candlesticks preferred is that they display the open, high, low and close price, of the given timeframe that you choose to work, in an easy-to-digest format.
Our students learn how to understand the market structure and determine movement using candlestick patterns formed by a sequence of Japanese candlesticks.
Types of currency pairs
According to the United Nations Treasury, there are around 180 different currencies in the world. However, in the forex industry, there are around 70 Forex pairs, depending on your broker.
There are two main categories of currency pairs which are major and minor. A third category is exotic pairs, however, they are not as frequently traded in comparison to the rest. The ability to trade any pair depends on your choice of broker.
How to find trades
There is no one way to find trades, In fact, there are possibly hundreds of ways to find trades, as it is subjective to a person’s trading strategy and their own perception. A few fundamental requirements for finding trades is knowing what timeframe to trade your strategy in, acknowledging news that can create noise in the market and so on.
Your trading tutor will coach you to be able to find profitable forex trade setups individually.
One of the key differences between a successful trader and one who is not successful comes down to psychology and self-discipline. Trading psychology is a term that has been exhausted by many “gurus” and self-proclaimed mentors, but only very few actually provide real understanding and knowledge on how to build the right psychology to become a successful financial trader. In our belief, psychology is just as important as knowing how to find trade setups, risk management alongside additional factors.
