The Advanced Trading Course is our premier accredited course leading to the award of a Level 5 Diploma in Applied Financial Trading. The course has been designed to provide candidates with a comprehensive understanding of how different trading techniques are used in real life situations by financial market professionals, through theoretical modules and practical sessions on our city trading floors. The course requires little or no previous knowledge of trading, although candidates with some experience should find this course particularly beneficial.

The course is comprised of academic and practical elements, beginning with an introduction to financial markets and an outline of the basics of trading. Fundamental news and political events are the cause of most significant market moves, so macroeconomic events and their impact upon financial markets, are discussed on an unfolding and real-time basis. Technical analysis is also a major driver of financial markets, so the course provides detailed explanations of technical analysis tools and explains how these trading techniques can be combined to build robust and profitable trading strategies. There is also strong emphasis given to trading psychology and risk management and how the natural human emotions of hope, fear, greed and over-confidence can adversely affect your trading decisions.
