LONDON, January 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Spread betting is a gateway for many people to become traders for the first time. While the learning path for a trader is long and varied, there are many ways to sharpen your skills in different areas whatever your level of experience, provided you are patient enough to take advantage of them. Here, City Index explains how to become a better spread bettor.
Sandy Jadeja, Chief Technical Analyst at City Index, frequently hosts the spread betting company's seminars on market analysis. He states: "Trading is an ongoing education process. It is never too late to start learning and one should never feel that one knows enough. Many traders make a point of attending one of my workshops in London to meet other traders who are of a similar level."
Here are just a few of the spread betting seminars on offer at City Index:
Introduction to Spread Betting
The first half of this seminar covers everything from the workings of spread betting to the risk management tools you need to minimise potential losses, with ample opportunity to ask questions along the way.
The second half is spent on a simulated trading account with a fictional amount of funds to 'trade' the markets using the real City Index live price feeds.
Technical Analysis for Beginners
This seminar, led by spread betting expert Mr. Jadeja, is designed to help you recognise low-risk spread betting opportunities through technical analysis.
As well as covering his own research on where he believes the markets are heading in weeks to come, Sandy Jadeja shows you how to set up your charts and understand the indicators and settings required for your own personal spread betting and CFD trading style.
Using Candlestick Patterns for Short-Term Trading Strategies
The financial markets often offer potential short-term trading opportunities that inexperienced traders can easily miss, so in this informative seminar an experienced trader from City Index's expert team takes you through candlestick patterns and how to build them into your trading strategy.
There are many ways to become a better spread bettor, from learning technical analysis and understanding market patterns, to the factors which cause fluctuation in the markets.
But whether you choose to go long, go short or hedge, City Index has all the education and resources you need to start trading and develop your experience and hone your skills.
