Last week we ran our the first online University event of this year with Bristol University’s Banking & Finance Society. Hosted by our Head of Trading Academy, Gavin Pannu and Funded Trader & Mentor Desmond Adeosun.
The event began with a brief overview of Alphachain and its objective to develop traders who then progress on to manage the firm’s capital. The students were then introduced to the topic of risk management which proves to be an important subject for traders and market participants.
In 2019 more than $6.6 trillion was traded on the Foreign Exchange, or Forex, market. This was the highest recorded level yet, and is in part due to the rise in popularity of Forex trading.
Forex trading has reached new heights of popularity due to factors such as social media promotion, and rising unemployment levels as a consequence of the economic downturn exacerbated by the global pandemic.
