Description

The Complete Guide to Forex Trading course will teach you everything you need to know about trading the forex markets.

In this course I will begin by covering the basics such as what is forex trading, currency names, market hours, forex terminology, types of orders, etc.

This course features robust, in-depth fundamental and technical analysis sections:

In the fundamental analysis section, you will learn the main fundamental factors that move currency prices including GDP (Gross Domestic Product), CPI (Consumer Price Index), central banks, interest rates. and geopolitical events. 

In the technical analysis section, you will learn the main technical indicators used by technical analysts including moving averages, support & resistance, relative strength index, MACD, stochastics, Bollinger bands, Fibonacci, etc.

Both sections demonstrate how to make successful trades using fundamental and technical analysis.

Lastly, this course covers risk management best practices so you can maximize your success over the long run!

As always, you will receive lifetime access for this course, I plan to add additional content going forward (which you will receive for free), you have a 30-day money back guarantee no questions asked, and I will answer any questions you post on Udemy if you need help!

  • Anyone who wants to learn more about forex trading.
  • Anyone who wants to expand their existing knowledge of the forex markets.
  • Someone looking for a step by step guide on how the forex markets work.
  • Someone who wants to learn both fundamental and technical analysis methods.

Global Macro Analyst

My name is Brendan and I'm glad you are interested in taking my course!

Finance

I currently work in the finance industry where I am a global macro hedge fund analyst. I have experience trading equities and currencies and I am passionate about teaching and sharing my knowledge with others. With regards to the currency markets, I enjoy tracking global themes and determining how those can be expressed via currency trades. 

Hobbies

Some of my hobbies include running, playing guitar, jazz, skiing, and reading. I grew up in Los Angeles, California and currently live in New York City. (But I hope to move back to California soon because it's too cold on the East coast!)
