OctaFX holds hands-on course to improve trading skills for traders in Lagos
The course featured expert instruction, real-time practice, and networking opportunities.
Forex trading can be a highly profitable and rewarding activity, but it can also be a challenging and overwhelming experience, especially for new traders. In fact, it is widely believed that over 80% of day traders are unsuccessful for many reasons, including improper planning or lack of knowledge. Some focus too much on random recommendations (and signals), losing money as quickly as they invest.
The Forex trading course was curated in an effort for the global Forex broker to act in line with the needs of existing and potential clients in Nigeria. A five-day seminar was held at the CCHub in Lagos, Nigeria, starting on 23 January 2022. Being designed by the OctaFX and their brand ambassador Ambrose Ebuka, the intensive offered participants valuable insights and knowledge free of charge.
Ambrose Ebuka, who provided the educational materials and personalised support during one-on-one Q&A sessions, was instrumental in correcting false beliefs and myths about Forex trading throughout the course. He also awarded all participants with unique gifts and certificates of attendance.
