Trading education continues during the COVID-19 challenge

“Education is one of our core offerings because we believe it’s the best tool for a trader to be successful. Ensuring our clients have a full understanding of the markets and the risks associated is paramount for us as a business” says ATFX as it ups the number of webinars during the COVID lockdowns

The worldwide outbreak of COVID-19 has caused significant disruption to many people and their communities. That’s no different for traders who are still in search of education and training.

ATFX has been holding even more webinars for its clients since the government guidelines have come in and advised people to stay home. The company’s seminars are now being hosted online so that clients still have access to the education and training they require.

“We’re committed to continuing our high-quality education service despite the challenging period that COVID-19 is causing. This webinar will replace the original seminar that was previously scheduled” says the firm.

“Our ATFX Chief Analyst of the Asia Pacific region, Martin Lam, will host the webinar to continue the high level of training during this challenging period. Education is one of our core offerings because we believe it’s the best tool for a trader to be successful. Ensuring our clients have a full understanding of the markets and the risks associated is paramount for us as a business. We don’t offer a rose-tinted view, instead, we provide accurate, reliable and trustworthy information regarding risk management, trading strategies and market analysis” concluded ATFX’s executives.

This webinar is for traders in the South East Asia region and the topics to be covered include:

  1. Gold trading strategy

Given the significant volatility in the global equities markets, Martin Lam will cover various ways traders can use gold as a hedge during these volatile times. Traders who have little to no exposure to the equity markets can also trade gold speculatively, Mr Lam will cover how best to trade in both directions.

  1. Oil trading strategy

My Lam will also discuss strategies for trading oil with ATFX given the volatility it has witnessed. The combination of the Saudi-Russia oil price war and the coronavirus pandemic has created great opportunities for traders to exploit. Identifying how to pinpoint these trade opportunities will be covered during the webinar.

  1. Trade with probability

The webinar will also cover in detail how to identify the high-probability setups and how to avoid those that will cause significant losses. Understanding the probability of trades is a huge factor for traders who want to be profitable. Simply not taking some trades can improve your profit and loss massively.

  1. Streamline technical analysis to capture trading opportunities

Lastly, we’ll explore some technical analysis techniques that will help capture the best trading opportunities. You will learn the technical analysis strategies used by professional traders to outperform retail traders and win in the markets. We’ll also cover how to tweak your technical analysis so that you can identify profitable setups on both the intraday and longer timeframes.
