The Forex course below consists of 92 lessons that will teach you the essentials of currency trading. The course was written by the founder and an economist at Rockefeller Treasury Services, Barbara Rockefeller, and co-written by Vicki Schmelzer, a senior FX correspondent, book author, and a professional Forex trader with 20 years of experience.

It will guide you through the very basics, will show you how to do your own technical and fundamental analysis, will introduce you to advanced trading concepts, and will explain the real difference between a losing trader and a professional one. You will learn how to work with charts, apply indicators and simple patterns, plan your trades, manage your risks, and navigate your way through the industry. After going through these lessons, you will understand how to use sentiment analysis to you advantage, how real world events affect currency rates, what power central banks have over Forex, and what alternatives traders have to the popular spot FX trading.

Each lesson ends with a short quiz — answer the questions after reading the text to assess yourself as you acquire new knowledge. Taking the quiz is optional — you can skip to the next lesson anytime.
