Following a successive start to 2018 that included hosting seminars every week, ATFX has continued its principled commitment of educating its investors by conducting a series of seminars in Southeast Asia, and more recently in the Philippines.  The sessions are free and educate its participants about alternative investing options and how to go about putting that education into practice.

The first in this series of seminars was held in Tainan, Taiwan in January this year, before continuing their tour with seminars in Taipei, Taichung, Kaohsiung and Taoyuan. Also, ATFX brought its team of experts to a successful showing at FinanceShow’s Exhibition to continue its training and educating in that part of the region, with its speakers discussing effective ways to navigate the FX markets.  

With its four offices in Southeast Asia – its newest recently opened in Johor Bahru, Malaysia – ATFX looks to continue its offering of trading education.  The financial company conducted regular seminars in Malaysia in March, its most recent being attended by 150 retail traders and IBs under the title “Modern FinTech, Creating a Future Together”, with key items discussed including cryptocurrencies, market trends, and analytic methodologies.

In the Philippines, its first seminar was conducted on Friday, April 27th at the Office of the President’s Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) section.  The Forex education and consultancy firm maintains a healthy relationship with the country’s government and hosted the seminar to aid Deputy General Aquino in ensuring his staff explores various investment opportunities, including forex trading which ATFX offers.

 ATFX introduced to the participants the FX market, trading in that environment and risk management techniques. Its second seminar was conducted a day later in two sessions. The topic was of an introductory nature, explaining the FX market, avoiding pitfalls that could lead to losses with effective risk management tools, and basic MT4 navigation.  Participants had their chance at trying ATFX’s demo account and gaining good experience from trading its vast number of instruments.

 

Lastly, partner training sessions were also held in Bangkok, Thailand in April, with trading education a primary feature of those sessions. Both partners and retail traders were among the participants. ATFX experts spoke extensively on various investment vehicles for both traders and partners’ selection. At the seminar, they went on to introduce the participants to different trading instruments.

The recent series of seminars are in line with ATFX’s belief that such training will provide traders with enough knowledge to make proper decisions, and increase their skill sets such that overcoming any hurdles in trading the financial markets will be done with greater ease.  The leading financial company is set to continue holding regular seminars for the remainder of 2018.
