About Us

The London Academy of Trading is an award-winning, dual-accredited provider of financial
trading education and was the first academy in the UK to offer accredited and regulated
qualifications in trading. We pride ourselves on providing practical and vocational training
courses developed to help individuals invest or trade in financial markets or for those looking
to enhance their employment opportunities within financial markets.

Since 2010, we have stayed committed to our four pillars of knowledge—fundamental
analysis, technical analysis, trading psychology, and risk management—which keep us on
track to show our students how to make the most out of their trading journey. We help our
learners apply their knowledge in a real-world, real-time environment so they understand the
fundamental and practical aspects of trading.

About the course:

Futures market prices, like all markets, are influenced by supply and demand, measured by
the volume of buyers and sellers among traders and investors. This course provides
techniques to identify this money flow to increase the chances of trading success.

The big market players, like investment banks, pension funds, investment funds and hedge
funds, have a critical influence on price movements and market trends, but it is possible for
sharp day traders to use this information to identify the most likely future direction of the
market. By analysing futures market volume and order flow, it is possible to see which way
the big players are moving, and individual traders can use this information to follow them and
maximise profits.

This course introduces a series of volume and order flow strategies for futures traders,
applying proven, simple, and replicable systems with carefully managed risk to achieve
consistent trading success and profitability.

The course is delivered by an experienced futures trading professional who will teach the
key concepts of volume and order flow analysis, as well as the practical applications of these
concepts. Lectures will involve extensive examples to illustrate how to use these techniques
in real-time markets to enable you to implement them immediately into your trading.
The course comprises six 90-minute interactive online sessions over a period of three
weeks. It includes access to futures demo trading platform to enable you to practise your
newfound techniques, as well as a dedicated one-to-one online discussion with your tutor
after the course to discuss and refine your chosen strategies.

The course provides the skills and knowledge for individual traders to progress in their
trading career, either with their own funds or with a professional proprietary trading house.
The course is also suitable for individuals trading CFDs on a retail trading platform, provided
they have access to the relevant futures pricing and volume data.
