LONDON, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Spread betting traders can benefit from a suite of education tools through their City Index trading account, designed to help improve their trading potential, regardless of their experience or knowledge.
Through a comprehensive range of seminars, based at their ideally-located London office, you'll cover various topics; starting with an introduction to spread betting and CFDs, technical analysis, candlestick charting and, also, forex trading.
New traders can benefit in particular, and are advised to gain as much knowledge prior to placing a trade as possible.
When utilised, seminars and webinars can provide a variety of benefits for a range of traders at varying levels of experience.
As mentioned above, seminars take place in-house at the City Index London office. Whilst traders have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with an experienced analyst and fellow traders; this form of learning may however prove inconvenient for some who trade part-time around their jobs, live outside of the city, and so on.
Spread betting webinars represent a level of convenience that cannot be matched by in-house seminars.
To benefit from a webinar, all you need is an internet connection, access to a computer and to visit the City Index UK website.
As mentioned above, spread betting education tools such as webinars and seminars, offer different forms of interaction whilst being equally valuable in terms of understanding the product itself.
Where spread betting seminars offer traders ample opportunity to call on the knowledge of the expert analyst leading their workshop - webinars allow traders to learn at their own pace; which could be the operative choice for some.
It's an idea to combine learning through the webinars and seminars whilst you practice with a demo trading account. Questions that may arise whilst you practice and familiarise yourself with the trading platform can be answered through a seminar or covered in a webinar.
Where in-house seminars can last between one-and-a-half to three-hours, the range of webinars are significantly shorter, often no longer than eight minutes.
Dependant on the traders' needs, they may prefer to learn about spread betting in a few hours in a single day, or pick-and-choose when they access the online webinars - playing, pausing, fast forwarding, and so on.
It also allows them to watch a single webinar multiple times; allowing them to return to a certain point to re-cover a certain area.
Spread betting education tools present an invaluable source of information for traders new to spread betting. Helping to build trading confidence and knowledge, access to seminars, webinars and demo trading accounts is free to City Index clients.
