I enrolled on the 10 part online Foundation Course with Shaw academy, covering financial trading. All the basics, including Forex, stocks and indices and interpreting Japanese candlesticks charts were covered in great detail.


I am really enjoying The Foundation Trading Course. So far i would say it is the best of its kind for any potential trader because the lessons are such that it is helpful to new traders.


The team do a great job at cramming so much information into each hourly session. It never feels like cramming though and stays in the memory easily.


This review is for the Foundation Trading Programme. Great course, to help understand the way markets work.
