Course Title:Financial Trading Diploma Level 5 RQF

Awarding Body:Skillsfirst

Average Duration:700 hrs

Course Support:12 months expert tutor support

Course Description

Split into 6 modules, each module aims to introduce students to the global financial market, and different future trading strategies (including outright trading, spreads trading and arbitrage) and their applications, as well as help you to pursue a career as a Proprietary trading professional.

Starting with the basics of support, resistance and reading candlestick charts, to progressing to Market Profiles, technical analysis, intra-exchange, inter-exchange, inter-commodity, equities and commodities markets; by the end of this intensive online course, you will fully  understand how and why markets behave the way they do, so you can implement trades with minimal risks.

In turn, you will learn: the principles of financial trading, planning and cash flow; different financial trading techniques; how to identify key market levels and the positioning of large institutional players; will examine inflation, economic data, statistics (performance and profitability) and interest rate policy, and will explore macroeconomic theory and its many uses.

In other words, you will be provided with the tools to successfully implement trades on the behalf of clients; handle risk management protocols; safeguard capital, and ensure your clients experience consistent profitability. You will even delve into the various types of psychological concepts, and how to achieve a winning metal state.

And the great news is – you can learn all of this from the comfort of your own home!

This course has been exclusively designed for online study, meaning you can easily fit your studies around your existing work, family or social commitments, and do so all on your own terms.

At a time, pace and location of your choosing, you can manage your studies and add another notch to your educational arsenal. This is especially useful if you’re serious about venturing into the financial sector, as trading is one of the most coveted jobs on the financial market.

By adding this Level 5 qualification to your CV, you will be one step closer to: executing trades; mediating on the behalf of bank clients, and essentially climbing the career ladder towards becoming a Proprietary Trader, Flow Trader, Retail Investor or Sales Trader.

Other skills you’ll walk away with include: knowing how to speak with clients; making instant trade decisions; liaising with sales traders/clients; predicting market movements and buying/selling accordingly, and gathering information (for valuation, mispriced assets and data analysis).

Please Note: this is a knowledge-based course that can be used for CPD to develop your financial competence and enable you to work as a Financial Trader.
