OANDA Launches Retail Education Portal
A global leader in online multi-asset trading services, OANDA has launched a new trading education portal that features a wide range of educational resources, from videos and eBooks to webinars and events. The new program has been specifically developed to guide visitors through their trading journey, and can be found at www.oanda.com/forex-trading/learn/.
OANDA’s updated education portal features a new, improved user interface and houses a host of material intended to help those who are new to trading or would like to learn the basics with detailed explanations on how to open and close trades. The site talks traders through the various order types such as market, limit, take profit, stop loss and trailing stop loss orders, and teaches them how to read price charts so they can track and identify real-time pricing trends.
Engineered to help traders know what – and when – to trade, OANDA’s education portal also offers an introduction to fundamental and technical analysis, enabling clients to gather valuable market information, better understand the types of economic indicators to look for, and learn how to apply technical indicators in their trading strategy, all while carefully managing their risk.
President & CEO of OANDA, Vatsa Narasimha said, “At OANDA, we constantly strive to empower our clients to become successful self-directed traders, whether it’s through our award-winning education resources, up-to-the-minute market commentary or cutting-edge technology. We believe our new and improved education portal will help arm our clients with the necessary tools to develop an informed trading strategy that identifies opportunities in the markets while mitigating risk.”
