About The Academy

FX Academy is a comprehensive educational system conceived directly from the need for traders to learn about Forex trading at their own pace in a comfortable, interactive environment. Founded by the trading experts at DailyForex.com who have been monitoring and reporting on the Forex market since 2006, FX Academy offers traders of all levels the courses they need to sharpen their trading skills and enhance their knowledge of the world of Forex.

In addition to courses about specific technical trading strategies and Forex trading basics, FX Academy also offers a range of lessons dealing with the complexities of trading psychology, which enable traders to better understand their strengths, their weaknesses and themselves. FX Academy is an entirely free service that was built with the understanding that Forex trading requires a mix of collaborative research and independent thinking, and that each trader must find the strategy with which he is most comfortable.

To this end, FX Academy provides a range of courses, complete with videos, quizzes and trade simulators to help traders identify their trouble spots and to focus on the different aspects of their Forex trading. FX Academy has developed its own unique Forex Strategy Simulations, a valuable tool created for users to assist them in defining their trading strategies for future trading.

Throughout their studies, traders will be tested on the information they've learned so that they can see where they excel and where they need additional instruction. The lessons are constructed in such a way that the deeper a student delves into the material, the more levels he can reach. Each lesson is accompanied by additional reading material and links to related lessons and articles.

Likewise, every FX Academy student will be able to ask questions and receive answers from other traders and financial professionals, so that every Forex trading concept will be totally comprehensible and beneficial to the participant.

FX Academy is a pilot program and uses a Beta version. All registered members will receive notifications of additional lessons, Forex trading strategies and any new educational material we consider relevant. Since FX Academy is not owned by any brokerage, our users are able to review the material as often as possible until they feel 100% prepared to start trading on their own.

At FX Academy, our goal is to help traders at all levels increase their confidence, their understanding of the market and their ability to trade profitably. We have built an exclusive program that we hope will reach the maximum number of traders and provide them with the best scholastic material available in the Forex arena. We value feedback and insights from our members and will continue to update and improve our program in an effort to provide the best holistic place for Forex trading.

We look forward to helping you trade smartly!

Cryptocurrencies are a unique new asset class, which burst onto the world stage during 2017 with sharp rises in price. Cryptocurrencies were at first poorly understood and can still be a confusing concept. We tackle the question of what are cryptocurrencies in the first lesson in this course, which outlines how they are created and administered, and what they represent. This first lesson also looks at blockchain technology, which is at the heart of all cryptocurrencies, and reviews how risky and volatile cryptocurrencies naturally are.

The second lesson asks why cryptocurrencies could be interesting for both traders or investors, with a special focus on traders. The lesson looks at the statistical principle of volatility clustering and infers that there is likely to be a great deal of price movement in the major cryptocurrencies over the near term, as well as reviewing the profits which early investors in significant disruptive technologies have made over recent decades....

Fundamental analysis has much in common with methods of analyzing the real value of stocks and shares which seek to discover whether particular stocks are undervalued or overvalued. In this course, we will explain what fundamental analysis is, and how you can build and execute your own model to analyze different currencies within the market, using it to take a view as to which currencies are likely to rise or fall in value –even if you aren’t an expert economist!

Lesson 1 explains the concept of fundamental analysis in more detail.

Lesson 2 explains the major items of national economic data which need to be analyzed to build a fundamental view of a country’s economy and, by implication, its currency.... [-]

In our first course, you will be introduced to the world of Forex trading. You will learn what Forex trading is all about, why someone chooses to trade Forex, and what actually happens when you make a Forex trade.

We will take you from a simple explanation of how Forex works to the selection of the various currency pairs that make up Forex trades. We will discuss how currencies are listed in the Forex markets. What is the base currency and what is the quote currency? How do the global Forex markets interact?

We will also review the many reasons why someone might trade Forex rather than a different investment vehicle, and detail both the advantages and disadvantages of this type of trade.... [-]

When you begin your journey as a trader, you are putting your hard-earned capital at risk.

Often, the last thing a new trader thinks about is how to manage risk. Instead, they are thinking about getting perfect entries or how many trades they can find in a day. And very often they are thinking about how to spend their profits!

But managing risk should be the first item on a trader’s To-Do list. Ask any successful trader about their trading and they will speak about how they manage risk to achieve their goals. The head of the largest hedge fund in the world, Ray Dalio, writes in his book, “If you are not defensive, you are not going to keep money.”

Risk management is the foundation for successful trading. We at FX Academy want you to learn that through these lessons and not learn it by losing a big part of your trading account!... [-]

The lessons in this course will teach you how to use Forex candlestick charts and candlestick graphs before placing your first trade. In order to understand price behavior, you will need to learn how to read candlestick charts and candlestick graphs, and how to interpret your readings. The focus will be on Japanese candlestick charts, which we will discuss more fully in later lessons.

8.1 Important Candlestick Types - Part 1

Japanese candlesticks are a way of visually representing price movements on a chart that is widely agreed to be more descriptive than traditional Western bar charts, or indicators which are merely derived from price. A Japanese candlestick chart allows price information to be more easily assimilated by the human eye, so the lesson begins with an explanation as to how each candle is drawn.... [-]
