Excellent feedback from students

“We are delighted to have our third class underway,” said Gus Farrow. “Again we have a broad school of students from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from finance, academia, marketing and personal fitness. The feedback we have had again has been brilliant, with our students showing a real thirst to benefit from such an interactive learning platform.”

Here is a testimonial of one of them:

“Before the course I thought I wanted to be a forex trader. The FTA course has opened my eyes to a wider world of trading than I knew existed. The course has showed me that I have not even scratched the surface of financial trading analysis.
I am confident that after the course I will not only be a successful forex trader, but I will have the tools to become a more wholly integrated Financial Trading Analyst.
It was Nelson Mandela who said “Education is the most powerful weapon” who am I to argue?”

Carolina May, CEO of FXStreet, declared: “When launching the University course earlier this year, we were eager to see how it would be received. Our mission to keep helping traders make informed decissions was moving a step forward with the creation of the FTA course. Now we are very happy to start the 3rd edition. The feedback has been very positive and is encouraging us to go for more.”
