Want to know how to start trading cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin? 

Bitcoin has been growing in popularity on a global scale but its still relatively new by most standards. Forex, on the other hand, is well known and has been around for a long time. It's a highly volatile platform in which loss and gains can happen very rapidly.

There are many opportunities to get involved as an early adopter and to invest and trade this new asset class.

The purpose of this course is to provide individuals with the basic knowledge required to navigate the cryptocurrency markets. It is therefore suited to the complete novice trader who wishes to engage with the world of online trading.

Attendees will learn everything from basic trading terminology to how to place orders via a broker using a trading platform or directly on an exchange. A large part of the course will focus on the practical side of using a trading platform, understanding the different order types and how to execute those orders in real time in a simulated account.

An exciting strategy has been included at the end of the course so that attendees can engage with the cryptocurrency market in a highly effective manner.
