General mathematics for students in the trading training course

General mathematics for students in the trading training course

Course goals

In addition to specialized market finance mathematics, which our students will need daily to establish their trading strategy, the students at the Californian Institute of Trading are taught ‘classic’ mathematics as well.  This course, founded on similar courses in schools of commerce and management, allows students to develop their logical reasoning skills and a rational spirit, which they will put to use in their trading stations. The mathematic subjects taught are widely varied, in order to develop student’s logical skills, with analysis, algebra, and probability being the three principal subjects in the course.
