This course is about trading one of the most reliable Forex trades of all time. Statistically over 80% of Weekend Gap close (Reach the Friday closing price levels on a Monday). So all you have to do is trade the Monday price back to the Friday price. Sounds so easy.

To trade the Weekend Gap like a Pro, however, you need to be more thorough. You need to consider factors such as currency selection, normal spreads and widened spreads, Stop methods and sizes, Target methods and sizes, position/lot sizing and risk management, currency and market volatility, environmental factors and many more considerations that are covered in the course.

There could be over 20 currencies experiencing gaps on a Monday morning. Trading so many currencies all at once can be done manually but this process is best automated using a MT4 Robot which is included free of charge to students who complete the course.

All the information sources and robots used in the course are available for free. All you will need is a demo Forex trading account which you can also get for free from your favourite broker.

The course is structured on a logical and easy to follow basis to enable you to start trading the next Weekend Gap opportunity with confidence immediately upon completion. It should take no longer than an hour to complete the course.

It is presented by an experienced Forex trader who has been trading this trade for over 10 years.

MBA & Chartered Accountant. Forex Educator at Expert4x

Retired early after a corporate career during which positions of Financial Director and Chief Operation Officer were held in multinational Pharmaceutical and medical multinational companies. Before this I accumulated financial Honours and Masters Degrees and qualified as a Chartered Accountant.

I have been trading the Forex Market and teaching Forex techniques for the last 12 years. I have developed a number of unusual and creative Forex trading techniques and tools over those years and I am constantly finding ways of helping Forex traders achieve success.

Over the years over 10 000 students have completed online courses relating to Forex trading which I have supported, presented or created. Many of these courses will be and are available on Udemy
