Introducing the financial markets
Ideal as a first step into the world of trading, this course takes you on a tour of the financial markets – including shares, indices, forex and commodities – equipping you with the essentials every trader needs to know. You’ll discover how each market operates, what drives it, and most importantly how you might capitalise on its movements. But before that, we’ll answer the most fundamental question of all: what is financial trading, and why would you want to do it?
