Rather than deep diving right into the intricacies of FX trading – spot, FX swaps, outright forwards, fundamentals, technicals, money management etc. it might be a better idea to first build on a framework or context within which we can form trading strategies. Understanding the FX Landscape will provide you with that context. By learning how the geography of trading centers, timezones, liquidity providers influence the FX spot prices understanding technical analysis and trading patterns becomes much simpler. 

In addition to the theoretical aspect of trading, by the end of this course you will also get a hands on experience on how a basic hedge is performed and how a simple arbitrage is performed.
