TECHNICAL ANALYSIS AND STRATEGIES

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This professional training program is designed to equip the participants with the knowledge of technical analysis tools and strategies to be used for the purpose of designing an analysis framework for the purpose of systematic trading. The program deals with how to identify high probability successful setups that have high reward-to-risk ratios and high hit ratios.
This program offers students the knowledge required to build and incorporate key and powerful strategic approaches to trading different market regimes in Equities, Forex, and Commodities. You would learn to employ conventional technical analysis and apply specific technical indicators or oscillators, on top of the core strategy for market timing through well defined systematic trading strategies. To hone your skills, you will be challenged to classify and identify the market’s overall direction and then take a position that is harmonious with the market. The curriculum will use core concepts of trend, demand, supply, and key supporting tools, and then employ trading strategy systems to enter into high reward-to-risk setups.


CERTIFICATION AWARDED

On successful completion of the program, you would be awarded the professional certification in TECHNICAL ANALYSIS AND STRATEGIES” by Moody’s Analytics and EduEdgePro.
