Trading Education FAQ

  • What trading education do day traders need?

    Any education in finance, economics, and mathematics is going to be helpful for day traders, or really for any traders. That said, you don’t need any type of specialized degree in any of these disciplines. In many cases simply following markets, reading news reports and articles about the assets and companies you’re interested in trading, and simply getting in there and getting your hands dirty by placing trades, and later analysing what went right and what went wrong in the trades, is enough to become a successful day trader. AvaTrade offers a wealth of information that will help contribute to the education of any prospective day trader.

     
  • Can you learn trading on your own?

    The fastest way to learn how to trade is by taking some course, or by finding a mentor who will guide you through your early days as a trader. However, neither of these are strictly necessary. It is possible to do your own research and find your own educational materials and learn trading. It might take longer, but it can also lead to a much broader trading education. A perfect place to start learning all about trading is through the educational materials offered by AvaTrade. Even more advanced traders will find something to add to their knowledge in our education centre.

     
  • Is trading hard to learn?

    There are a lot of areas to consider when learning trading, but none of them are truly hard to learn. Every trader should try to master either technical or fundamental analysis, and should have at least a basic knowledge of both. In addition, the successful trader will need detailed knowledge of the platform they trade on and the different order types that can be used. It is also very helpful to understand something of trading psychology, and having a solid grasp on trade management and risk management is crucial for the long-term survival of a trader.
