LONDON, October 27, 2011 -

City Index (www.cityindex.co.uk) offers free on and offline spread betting seminars to help financial traders hone their skills from the comfort of their own home or office.

The company, voted ‘Best Mobile Trading Platform’ at the 2010 and 2011 Money AM Online Finance Awards, provides the seminars and webinars to City Index account holders and non-account holders alike. Read on for an overview of the workshops available.

Introduction to Spread Betting (Webinar)

This webinar concentrates on the basics of financial spread betting, using example spread bets to demonstrate how it works. The animated video also discusses stop losses, limit orders and the way in which your profits and losses are magnified as a result of spread betting leverage.

The advantage of this webinar over a seminar is that it gives traders the freedom to start, stop, rewind and fast forward their learning at the touch of a button. Their spread betting education is quite literally at their fingertips.

Learn to Trade the Financial Markets (Seminar)

This exclusive seminar helps you to better understand the techniques and insights used by today’s leading professional traders. The events focus on stock indices, commodities and forex and are aimed at both beginners and experienced traders to help you to identify upcoming potential trading opportunities.

The City Index demo account is incorporated into the seminar and is another effective way for traders to improve their spread betting skills by using a virtual amount of funds to ‘trade’ the real markets.

Technical Analysis for Beginners with Sandy Jadeja(Seminar)

This seminar, led by the Chief Technical Analyst of City Index, is designed to help traders recognise low-risk spread betting opportunities through the use of technical analysis. As well as covering his own research on where he believes the markets are heading in weeks to come, Sandy Jadeja demonstrates how to set up your charts and understand the indicators and settings required for a trader to form their own personal spread betting style.

The ‘Technical Analysis for Beginners’ seminar is held at City Index’s London offices, where attendees get the invaluable opportunity to practice real-time simulated trading under the tutelage of City Index’s team of financial spread betting experts.
