Our Core Trader Training Programme (CTTP) is a comprehensive and robust course that can be studied one of two ways.

The course covers behavioural psychology, risk management and technical analysis, and helps you to make sense of the financial markets; giving you the skill, knowledge and technical competency to ultimately make the right trading decisions.
You learn the fundamental principles of trading and techniques that professional traders use, so that when you leave the course, you are knowledgeable and confident enough to create your own strategies and identify genuine opportunities to make money in the Commodities, Equities, Forex and Cryptocurrency markets, whether you are using spread betting, CFD’s, futures, options or trading stock & shares, spot FX / cryptocurrencies.
