Here at CAPEX, we’ve created a dedicated online trading school to help you develop your trading knowledge.
At the CAPEX online trading school, we cover everything you need to know before you start trading. We explain how different trading instruments work, explore trading strategies, brokers, trading costs, market hours and much more. Whether you’re a complete beginner or are an intermediate trader looking to expand your knowledge, you’ve come to the right place.
Many CFD brokers only offer instruments from certain asset classes or have a limited number of certain assets, but that’s not the case when you trade with CAPEX. From stocks, ETFs and bonds to forex, crypto and indices – we’ve got it all. It’s not just asset class variety on offer, either – we have over 2,000 stocks, more than 55 forex pairs and a wide range of cryptocurrencies, so there’s something for just about everyone. We even have our unique CFD blends, which are baskets of stocks grouped together to reflect certain markets and industries, something you won’t find at any other broker!
As a broker, it’s our job to make sure you have the right tools in place to execute your trading strategies. That’s why we’ve put a lot of work into developing a highly advanced trading platform that has a variety of tools and features suitable to trading all different asset classes.
These include a selection of execution modes and order types, a variety of price chart types and time frames, a choice of technical indicators and analytical tools, up to ten charts simultaneously, and real-time quotes. Your account is also highly customizable, so you can set it up in the way that suits you.
When it comes to trading, there are so many things to learn about it. Tradersare often warned that it’s a craft that can take years to master, and that’s certainly true. There’s the basic things like how instruments work and different market hours, and then there’s much more advanced things like learning trading strategies, technical analysis and fundamental analysis.
What’s more, with so much information available online, from websites to ebooks and online courses to YouTube, it can often be difficult for beginners to know where to start. That’s why here at the CAPEX trading school, we start with the basics and then build up slowly into the more technical subjects like analysis techniques, trading tools and systems used for different markets.

We want you to be the best trader you can be, and once you’ve graduated from the CAPEX online trading school, you’ll be on the right path. As a broker, we live and breathe trading and have years of experience in the industry.
You don’t need to just take our word for it, though. We were named 2020’s Best Forex Educational Broker at the Forex Expo awards, so we have a track record of providing first rate trading education. As well as the CAPEX academy we offer feature articles and webinars so that our traders are able to constantly develop their knowledge and be the best they can be.
Now, let’s take a closer look at what exactly you can learn about in the CAPEX online trading school.
The first port of call for new traders is to get to grips with different trading assets. The most popular assets among traders are stocks, forex, cryptocurrencies, ETFs, indices, and bonds.
It’s vital to have a sound understanding of each asset type, how they move in value in their respective markets, and what drives those shifts in value. No asset class is identical, so it’s vitally important you thoroughly understand the differences between different assets and their respective markets. This is particularly important as, rather than just trading a single asset class, most traders prefer to diversify by trading instruments from across different classes, like stocks, forex and crypto.

It’s also important to understand the various ways you can trade these instruments online. For example, with stock trading and crypto trading you can actually buy the underlying assets, or you can trade CFDs (contracts for difference). It’s similar for commodities and forex, which you can trade as CFDs, futures or options. Whichever you choose will have a big impact on your trading, so understanding the differences between these instruments is important.
At the CAPEX online trading school, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about various trading assets. We have individual articles exploring different assets, and we also have articles where we directly compare assets to one another and explore the differences.
Any experienced trader will tell you that to be successful in the financial markets, you need to have a sound, tried and tested trading strategy. But getting to grips with various strategies and deciding which one is best can be tricky.
For example, day trading, swing trading and scalping are just a few of the trading strategies that are commonly employed by traders. As trading is often a game of fine margins in which even small mistakes can be costly, it’s vital that you’re set on a defined strategy before you jump in.
You don’t need to just take our word for it – we’ve won a whole stack of awards over the past few years which shows we deliver a premier online trading experience. For example, we won the award for Best Forex Educational Broker at the 2020 Forex Expo awards, which shows we’re a perfect choice for beginner traders. We’ve also been named as the broker with the Best Trading Tools by Brokercheck, the Best Dealing Room at the 2019 Forex Awards, and the Best New Forex Broker Middle East at the Global Banking & Finance Review 2020.
Then there’s analysis techniques. Technical analysis refers to evaluating markets by studying data like price movements and volume. While fundamental analysis is where you try to define an asset’s intrinsic value by examining related financial, economic and political factors, such as balance sheets, consumer behaviour and regulatory changes. Most traders will tell you that a combination of both technical and fundamental analysis is crucial to tasting success.
Through our Academy we’ll teach you the basics of different strategies like day trading and analysis techniques like fundamental analysis. This will help you decide which strategy is best for you, and you can then try it out using the CAPEX demo account!
This point is closely linked to the above two – even if you have a sound strategy and have got your analysis techniques down, it’s still very difficult to have trading success if you don’t use the right tools.
First, there are basic tools that you use when making trades like leverage and stop-loss limits. Then there’s the more advanced tools that you use in conjunction with your strategy. Indicators, bollinger bands, candlestick charts, head and shoulders patterns – these are just a few of the tools that are commonly used by traders to help take advantage of market movements.
At the CAPEX online trading school, we’ll explore these tools and how you can use them as part of your trading strategy.
One thing that often confuses traders is the different types of brokers. A trader may think all brokers are one and the same, but that’s far from the truth. You’ve got CFD trading brokers, STP brokers, ECN brokers – the list goes on. If you’re just starting out in the world of trading, it’s vital to know how these brokers differ from one another to ensure you choose the right one for you. Our expert online broker guide is designed to help you do just that.
We’ll also take a look at the various third-party trading platforms and their features and tools. For example, at CAPEX you can trade via MT5, which is packed with useful tools that are extremely popular among traders. And you can learn all about MT5, and other trading platforms, right here.

Arguably the most common questions new traders have are those focused on trading fees and costs. Which is understandable, as they’re often not as straightforward as you may expect.
The two main fees you need to learn about are spreads and swaps. These are the costs of trading when you use a CFD broker like CAPEX, so it’s vital that you have a sound understanding of how much any particular trade will cost. Luckily, our expert guides explain everything you need to know about these fees so that you’re all clued in.
Having a sound understanding of different trading markets across the world and their opening times is vital to successful trading. After all, many traders trade a variety of different markets with different moving forces and times.
With our trading for dummies market hours guides, you’ll learn everything you need to know about when different markets open and shut, as well as when the best time to trade is.
We understand that many aspects of trading can be difficult to fully understand. There are so many things to learn, and with money on the line, traders often feel a lot of pressure to get things right the first time.
With the CAPEX online trading school, we have a guide on everything you could possibly think of. From different assets and market hours to trading tools and strategies, you can complete the trading education right here at an award winning broker.
