Level 5 Diploma in Applied Financial Trading

In these extraordinary times, it’s more important than ever to understand the financial implications of the current global crisis. It may also be the case that this situation has provided you with some spare time to perhaps learn a new skill or improve your knowledge. As you’ve seen in the news, financial markets have been extremely volatile in recent weeks. Whilst this can be scary for some investors, it also creates incredible opportunities for others. We at LAT have been teaching individuals how to trade financial markets for nearly 10 years, and our award-winning online programmes have recently been enhanced to cater for the growing demand for virtual learning. Our team of tutors are all traders themselves and are available ten hours a day to answer questions and provide help and advice.

LAT are proud to offer a selection of online packages to cater for your interests and preferences. Our standard package will give you full access to the prerecorded course lectures, daily webinars and real time trading systems. Our premium package will give you access to almost 40 hours’ worth of live interactive teaching classes and plan development sessions, and our premium plus will give you the ability to repeat these live sessions, so you'll have access to nearly 100 hours’ worth of classes!

This Level 5 Diploma course is our premier accredited course. 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.
