Trading for Beginners

In our Trading A-Z you’ll find information about the financial instruments, technical terms and fundamental concepts you need to get started in your online trading education. 

In the What is Forex section you can learn more about the global FX market, currency pairs and how a trade works. Here you’ll also find descriptions of some of the common trading concepts such as order types, rollovers and hedging.

The Technical Analysis section details the basics of understanding and analyzing live charts in order to inform your trading decisions.

The CFDs section outlines Contracts for Difference – an important financial instrument that allows traders to buy or sell currencies, indices, commodities and stocks without owning the underlying asset.

You can also check out our glossary to find brief definitions of all the trading and financial terms you will encounter as you begin your education in trading.

Once you’ve had a look at the Trading A-Z materials, why not continue your education by signing up for a webinar? We also have a collection of videos covering currency trading and the popular trading platform, MetaTrader 4.

After you’ve familiarized yourself with all the basics you can sign up for a demo account and put your learning into action by trading risk-free.
