Traders Education is Important During Volatile Market Conditions

“Our goal is to equip our clients with the right skills to help them manage risk better and to ensure that they are proficient at using the tools available on our trading platforms” states ATFX senior management

ATFX is focused on educating its clients because we believe that the best investor/trader is a knowledgeable investor. The company’s goal is to have more clients trading with their head rather than their heart. Taking the emotions out of trading helps clients perform consistently by removing erratic behaviour that can affect P/L. The fact that it is now not possible to host physical seminars has not stopped ATFX from educating clients during this difficult time. 

ATFX has been running a series of webinars during this period to ensure our clients stay ahead of market events. These webinars cover a range of topics such as: 

  • How to earn from gold trading
  • How to earn from stock trading
  • Technical analysis based on Fibonacci retracements
  • How to trade US stocks
  • Price action trading

“The webinars go over basic strategies required to trade each specific market. We also go over any hot topics at the time of the webinar. Recent examples include how to trade oil during the volatility in April and how to trade gold in the risk-off market environment” states the company.

“The webinars are structured to cater to both beginners and experienced traders. ATFX runs these webinars at least twice a week meaning clients will learn something new every week. We also host special webinars for our introducing brokers (IBs) where we cover different topics on how they can grow their businesses.”

“We held 12 webinars in March when the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. We then dramatically increased that number to 55 in April as it became clear that physical seminars were out of the question. We plan to hold 64 webinars in May as we expand our training programme to cater to both new and existing clients” explained ATFX senior management.

These webinars are available to our clients in the following countries: Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, the MENA region and Sub-Saharan Africa. 

“We have a series of webinars planned for May as we continue to educate and inform our clients and partners during this challenging period. Our goal is to equip our clients with the right skills to help them manage risk better and to ensure that they are proficient at using the tools available on our trading platforms” concluded the company.
