StoneX launches StoneX School of Futures


StoneX Financial Europe and StoneX Financial Inc – FCM Division, are to co-host the StoneX School of Futures, a virtual programme designed to introduce the world of Futures to retail traders, speculators, investors, traders and university students who are looking for new and unique trading or career opportunities. 


The comprehensive, 40-hour course will span 10 half-day sessions occurring every Tuesday and Thursday from June 1 through 1 July, 2021. Each session will be conducted in an exciting, interactive and fun way, including a hands-on, practical Futures Trading Simulation.

More than 30 skilled international educators and savvy practitioners will present fundamental, technical and practical information on virtually every Futures industry concept, including trading applications. The School of Futures will delve deep into the world of commodities, so that participants can learn how to trade the products available in each of the major Futures industry complexes, including Currencies, Stock Indexes, Precious & Industrial Metals, Agricultural, Interest Rates, Softs, and Energy.
