Approach the biggest market in the world and learn how to trade
The seminar aims to illustrate the currency market (FX or Foreign Exchange) and its influencers. In the first part, we will show the FX market characteristics, its participants and the developments in the last years. In the second part, we will focus more on the way to trade FX pairs, by analyzing:
- Formation of exchange rates
- Economic and political factors that drive the prices (interest rates, inflation, GDP, commodities trends…)
- Correlation and nature of major currencies
In the last part of the session, we will apply the learnt notions and will trade in real time using the CornèrTrader platform.
