Lesson 1: The Foundation of Your Diploma in Financial Trading

a. The Incentive to Trade With the global financial crisis in 2008, the style of trading used by the inexperienced traders viz., the buy and hold approach, ceased to work. The financial markets have experienced such a paradigm shift since then, that the trading practices and techniques have also not been left untouched by it; for example, traders can go both short as well as long with CFDs. This course covers all the information about these facets of the global markets, along with the knowledge of the methods of capitalising on both buying and selling opportunities.

b. The Trading Instruments Learn about the trading of various instruments like foreign exchange, commodities, indices, individual stocks, etc. Each individual trading instrument is examined in detail to allow complete understanding of their characteristics and inter-dependencies.

c. Understanding the Trading Community Nothing can exist in isolation in this world. Like any other form of business, an awareness and understanding of the operational dynamics, the characteristics of the trader community, the competition, the trading trends, etc. is of utmost importance to every trader. However, this information is not so easy to come by in the trading world. This course aims at providing all this information to the new traders to ensure they have a smooth ride.
