“I have just completed a Diploma Course in Financial Trading with IIFT. I can honestly say that if you are considering a career, part time or full time, in financial trading then I would advise you to complete a course with IIFT. You will get all the skill sets you require to trade successfully. You will also be shown how to incorporate risk management strategies into your trading methods which are imperative to being your own personal trader or hedge fund manager. Most importantly, all IIFT tutors are professional traders and will give you the very best of their many collective years of trading experiences. I was also very pleased by the participants in the course”
Andrew Fitzwalter, Oct 2017
Don Pic“Excellent. The tuition gets better and better. Peter on top of his game, Niall very good on technical analysis, the importance of price action and being ready to trade were highlights for me. The follow-on trading days are superb and very energising.”
Don Morrissey.
“The IIFT provides exemplary financial trading educational services with the highest integrity, maximum wit and clarity. Thoroughly impressed”
Aly Alvy.
“When I finished my diploma with IIFT I wrote a short testimonial. I don’t believe it was good enough and I believe IIFT deserve a bit better than what I wrote. So here is another one….
I had a choice to either emigrate to Canada or invest in myself by studying with IIFT. For the sake of wanting to enter the stock market I decided to study with IIFT.
It is one of the best decisions I made in my life as I can now enter the stock market as a day trader and earn another stream of income. The staff were really helpful and were passionate in teaching myself and my class how to trade efficiently in the stock markets.
I really enjoyed Peters macro view on the economics around the world and what impact it has on the stock markets. I also really enjoyed learning the different styles of trade which I am implementing on my trades now.
I especially enjoyed Niall’s technical analysis on how to trade. Everything I learnt from him is exactly what I was looking for when I first started.
I am absolutely delighted to have studied with IIFT and will be doing further studies with them in the future….no regrets what so ever.
As for emigration, it was only delayed for another 9 months. I now have the knowledge to enter the stock markets even in Canada!!”
Terence Chan.
“10/10. Very good course – has taken the mystery out of understanding the financial markets.
Louis McConkey.
