Trading 101


This course is for people who have heard about trading, but don’t know much about it. Here, we explore the basics of how financial markets work and how you can interact with them to make money.

Contrary to popular belief, trading is not tossing money into the markets and hoping for the best. Nor is it using cash to gamble on market activity as a person might do in a casino. Instead, it is a risk-controlled endeavor designed to make money from price movement. Those who study market prices carefully and employ sound trading strategies are able to profit in ways that other people cannot.


To participate in the course, all you need is a desire to learn. Prior knowledge of the financial markets and trading procedures is not required.
