FXTM’s acclaimed Forex Educator Theunis Kruger to present ‘The Gift of Online Trading’ in Pretoria and Bloemfontein through engaging seminars and workshops

The foreign exchange market is the most liquid in the world, with a staggering daily turnover of approximately 5 trillion USD. As a result, the brokerage industry is hugely competitive. With such a vast selection to choose from, a new and inexperienced trader could well find themselves struggling to know where to begin.

A worthwhile broker understands that offering a high standard of trader education is absolutely imperative. This has always been at the centre of FXTM’s principal values, and the company places great emphasis on the belief that education and success go hand in hand.  The financial markets can be extremely volatile and often change at a rapid pace. Unless one is well versed in the terminology, tools and techniques required to trade cautiously, it is more than likely that mistakes will be made and capital will be lost.

Andreas Thalassinos, FXTM’s Head of Education, said, “FXTM remain 100 percent dedicated to providing concise and comprehensive information to our traders. As well as our vast array of accessible online resources such as videos and webinars, our highly-experienced forex educators conduct interactive seminars and workshops in various regions around the world. In 2018 alone, FXTM hosted over 150 educational events globally and we look forward to expanding our horizons even further this year”.

With the introduction of mobile and tablet trading applications, the forex market is now more accessible than ever

Tips on how to become a successful forex trader

  • The best way to start is by choosing a reputable, well-established broker to work with.
  • You must do your research first by consulting online media and search for legitimate broker reviews, and those of their peers.
  • Make sure they are licensed and regulated, as this protects both you and your money.
  • It helps to remember that a professional looking website does not automatically guarantee legitimate regulation – no matter how impressive the graphics or promising the text.
  • The right broker will offer a wide variety of products and services, a responsive Customer Support Team and reliable, efficient trading platforms with secure payment systems. Most crucial of all, a company should take every measure to ensure that their clients are both informed and risk-aware, and must be willing and available to answer any questions they may have with honesty and transparency.

As one of these well-established brokers, FXTM is extremely aware of the importance of spreading forex knowledge in regions that show great potential for investor growth. As such, the broker is pleased to reveal that they will be returning to South Africa to continue its mission to educate investors in Pretoria and Bloemfontein.  Our acclaimed industry expert Theunis Kruger will be hosting ‘The Gift of Online Trading’ in the form of two informative seminars and a two-day workshop. The first seminar will take place in Pretoria on 9 March, with the two-day workshop (also in Pretoria) due to be held from 11-12 March. The final seminar will follow on 16 March in Bloemfontein.

‘The Gift of Online Trading’ was specially designed with first-time traders in mind, and empowers participants with a clear, structured guide to building their own online trading business. Theunis will provide participants with the opportunity to discover the three foundational pillars of online trading, as well as how to navigate the forex market. There will also be a chance for guests to practice their newly acquired skills and ask any questions they may have.

Theunis affirmed that: “We are delighted to continue our educational efforts in South Africa. Our commitment to cultivating local traders and fostering long-term relationships is one of the cornerstones of the FXTM brand, and we are passionate about sharing our knowledge at high-level educational events around the globe. We work extremely hard to ensure that traders of all experience levels and learning styles are catered for. Based on the wonderful feedback we have received over the years, we are confident that attendees come away with a firm understanding of the fundamentals of forex.”
