What do you get when you combine a handful of the best Forex industry professionals, educators, and analysts; a roomful of enthusiastic traders looking to improve their strategy; and the beautiful locale of Barcelona, Spain? The 2012 International Traders Conference, of course!
It’s no secret that one of the best ways to increase your Forex trading success is by learning as much about the industry as possible, and at the ITC, the emphasis falls primarily on education. Here, attendees will not only have the opportunity to experience FX professionals presenting a variety of fast-paced and highly informative talks, but they will actually get to see them in action by participating in live trading sessions.
The conference is hosted by Fxstreet.com, one of the world’s top 10 currency trading portals that offers users unbiased information to help them achieve success in Forex investing. Maud Gilson, Communication Manager at FXstreet, is once again in charge of organizing the event.
“The ITC is so different because it’s not like a typical expo or workshop where there’s only one or two speakers – it’s an entire 3 day event with six experts. There are no commercial presentations, no booths, no products – it’s purely educational,” explains Gilson.
Because they are in collaboration with the entire Forex industry, from start-ups to investment banks, it was no problem for FXstreet to build a roster of multiple internationally renowned foreign exchange professionals to lecture at the event.
To be sure they ran the gamut of varied Forex topics, the speakers were selected based on their expertise in different areas of trading, such as technical analysis, strategies, and psychology. Each of their speeches runs roughly an hour in length and divulges information on topics such as high frequency finance, where coach and technical analyst Richard Olsen shares with audiences how to leverage new insights. Walter Peters, PhD and founder of Australia’s FXJake, will explain the side effects of indicator-free trading and how it can be used to ones advantage.
Coach and Technical Analyst David Pegler will be giving a straightforward explanation of utilizing price action, market fractals, and Fibonacci numbers to increase trading success. Giving a genre of lecture new to the event this year is Steve Ward, owner of High Performance Global Ltd. In it, he scrutinizes the “traders brain” and explains the psychology and neuroscience behind Forex investing.
“I think the live trading is the best part; the traders are so passionate becomes a much more involved and interactive experience than just something you would listen to,” says Gilson.
To ensure each guest get the most out of the event, it is offered only to 70 participants. This way, small groups of between six and eight attendees will be able to interact directly with each speaker in a live trading session. By having the opportunity to work with various FX professionals, each guest will be exposed to a rich and varied assortment of trading strategies.
“The live trading goes on for 3 hours everyday where the speakers project their computers on a big screen and everyone has a laptop to engage in live trading. Guests will even be able to take some trades together with the speakers,” Says Maud.
Traders of all different experience levels can benefit from ITC Barcelona, and aside from being an intensive learning experience, the conference is also a strong networking tool. Previous attendants rave about the welcoming and interactive atmosphere of the event, which takes place at the beach front Barceló Atenea Mar. Since space is very limited, anyone interested in participating is strongly advised to register soon, as the event fills up quickly.
