The aim of this course is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of how foreign exchange (Forex) currencies are traded in both professional and retail markets and what causes currency values to rise and fall. The course examines the major players within the Forex market – banks, brokers, fund managers, hedge funds and retail traders – and explores the dynamics between these participants. It also investigates techniques to evaluate and trade FX for risk mitigation or speculation, exploring the use of futures, forwards, swaps and options to achieve these aims. Major macroeconomic data releases, political and central bank speeches are investigated, and their effects on Forex markets are analysed, often in real-time. This course also introduces chart analysis and examines primary technical analysis techniques to predict potential future price moves.

Trading Psychology and Risk Management

Campus Full time August 2017 United Kingdom London

All human beings are hard-wired to behave in a certain way, given certain stimulus and situations. However, traders and investors need to adapt their behaviour to become successful. This course studies a range of human emotions and the effect of crowd behaviour on financial markets; what makes people think and behave as they do and how this (somewhat predictable) behaviour can be used to forecast market movements and enhance trading profits.

All human beings are hard-wired to behave in a certain way, given certain stimulus and situations. However, traders and investors need to adapt their behaviour to become successful. This course studies a range of human emotions and the effect of crowd behaviour on financial markets; what makes people think and behave as they do and how this (somewhat predictable) behaviour can be used to forecast market movements and enhance trading profits. The course also examines individual psychological biases and explains how to recognise the reasons that cause traders to make predictable errors in their analysis & trading. We explain how to identify these biases, and how to avoid falling into emotional traps when trading. The course also explains how to recognize, assess and manage potential burn-out in traders, and how to help them return to profitability after a performance slump. The course also investigates different types of investment risk and methods for mitigating risk through hedging or diversification. Throughout the course students will be required to calculate and assess the monetary risk within their real-time demo trading portfolios and will need to manage their risk exposure effectively at all times, with emphasis on stop loss and limit order placement.
