by Lawrence is taking this course right now.
I don't have knowledge of financial markets and do wish to no how to trade. I was told by my brother regarding investing in financial markets but still need a background knowledge first. I therefore believe that doing the course will provide me with perfect skills to carry on with my dreams to be a trader
