The Finance Trading Analysis course that FXStreet developed for the University of Essex Online is opening a new intake for students to start the course in January 2016.
With this online programme accredited by a prestigious university, students learn about the different types of financial assets, various schools of analysis and trading strategies, and have the chance to put their learning into practice on live trading simulators.
Students of the last intake sent us their opinions about the course, and it’s excellent…
“I have been trading for about 6 years and a large part of it has been a struggle. I have invested a significant amount of my own time and money in educating myself, either through retail (online) courses or my own research.
As my trading results improved over the past couple of years I decided to enrol for the FTA course for the following reasons:
1) – Further expand my knowledge beyond only the FX market, including Portfolio Management.
2) – To get an inside view on how real, professional / institutional traders view the market.
3) – To gain an official form of recognition for what I have already achieved through my own time and dedication, as I did not hold a University Qualification prior to completing the FTA course.
I feel that the course has clearly met and exceeded my above expectations. The content is clear and concise and the Tutor takes a flexible approach to dealing with students at all levels.
The course has either helped me to confirm some of my current market believes, or in other areas encouraged me to expand and re-think certain concepts. The course has pushed me into dealing with Asset Classes which I was much less familiar with.
I can highly recommend the FTA course to anyone who would like to add a more professional string to their market bow. For me, this was a rare opportunity to “officially” study a subject that I am passionate about.”

“I’ve been trading for a few years, picking up piecemeal knowledge, but without any structure or plan. I like the way this course forces you to think in terms of a trading plan, and gives you many more variables to consider than I was even aware of. I also learned properly what bonds and options are!
I was also attracted to the course as it seems to be the only one which is offered by and validated by a real UK university. In other words, the diploma means something.”
David Atherton – student of the FTA Course, August intake
