Free courses often don’t have the same quality as paid for courses as is the case with most products. In forex trading you will often find that free courses are watered down versions of professional courses. There is one stand out free forex course on a website called Babypips. Babypips has an excellent free forex trading course which you can access through this link : www.babypips.com/school .
The content is better and easier to understand than most commercial currency trading courses and covers everything you need to know. The course is well setup in terms of structure where a general education structure is used from kindergarden to university. Complete the modules in order for the best results.
The one thing thing that Babypips does not offer is 1-on-1 training which I believe is vital to trading success. What I would suggest you do is complete the free babybips course and see if you think online trading is for you. If you want to go further have a look at the SAFX products and services on safx.co.za.
It is really important to get professional 1-on-1 lessons before you start trading live as forex trading is much like playing a sport. You can read up on rules and strategies but need a coach to show you how to execute what you have learned in a practical way. You can have a look at our complete course options. Trading takes a bit of time to learn but the most important part is practice which takes a lot of self-discipline.
