The Advanced Trading Course from London Academy of Trading is perfect for those who are keen to understand the factors which cause shifts and fluctuations in global financial markets. By studying this course, you will gain a brand new skill set and increase the strength of your CV with an accredited, regulated qualification.


This Advanced Trading Course from London Academy of Trading is the academy’s pre-eminent programme, which doesn’t require any prior knowledge. The programme starts with an introduction to the financial markets and an overview of the essentials of trading before exploring macroeconomic events and how they impact global markets.

You’ll learn how to build a solid and robust trading strategy with an in-depth insight into technical analysis tools. You’ll also explore trading psychology and risk management to understand how human emotions can influence financial decisions.

Whether you’re looking to trade commodities, stock indices, equities, forex, or other assets, LAT offers insights into a variety of assets and how they’re associated to ensure you have the necessary skills for trading. Upon successful completion, you'll receive a Level 5 Diploma in Applied Financial Trading.

Choose whether to study online, face-to-face, or via a blended combination of the two. Have the freedom to pause and resume your course as much as you like to suit your schedule. We offer nine start dates each year, so there’s never long to wait for the next course to begin. During the course, you will have access to three interactive webinars each day, a real-time trading platform to practise new skills, and LAT mentors available ten hours a day for 1:1 trading guidance.
