Xdplax Int'l Academy

Xdplax int'l Forex Academy is a comprehensive educational system conceived directly from the need for traders to learn about Forex trading at their own pace in a comfortable, interactive environment. Founded by the trading experts who have been monitoring and reporting on the Forex market since 2005, Xdplax int'l Forex Academy offers traders of all levels the courses they need to sharpen their trading skills and enhance their knowledge of the world of Forex.

In addition to courses about specific technical trading strategies and Forex trading basics, Xdplax int'l Forex Academy also offers a range of lessons dealing with the complexities of trading psychology, which enable traders to better understand their strengths, their weaknesses and themselves. Xdplax int'l Forex Academy is an entirely free service that was built with the understanding that Forex trading requires a mix of collaborative research and independent thinking, and that each trader must find the strategy with which he is most comfortable.

To this end, Xdplax int'l Forex Academy provides a range of courses, quizzes and trade simulators to help traders identify their trouble spots and to focus on the different aspects of their Forex trading. Xdplax int'l Forex Academy has developed its own unique Forex Strategy Simulations, a valuable tool created for users to assist them in defining their trading strategies for future trading.

Throughout their studies, traders will be tested on the information they've learned so that they can see where they excel and where they need additional instruction. The lessons are constructed in such a way that the deeper a student delves into the material, the more levels he can reach. Each lesson is accompanied by additional reading material and links to related lessons and articles.

Likewise, every Xdplax int'l Forex Academy student will be able to ask questions and receive answers from other traders and financial professionals, so that every Forex trading concept will be totally comprehensible and beneficial to the participant.

Xdplax int'l Forex Academy is a pilot program. All registered members will receive notifications of additional lessons, Forex trading strategies and any new educational material we consider relevant. Since Xdplax int'l Forex Academy is not owned by any brokerage, our users are able to review the material as often as possible until they feel 100% prepared to start trading on their own.

At Xdplax int'l Forex Academy, our goal is to help traders at all levels increase their confidence, their understanding of the market and their ability to trade profitably.
