You have mastered the basics of trading. You are now ready to build your portfolio by analysing Global Macro developments so as to capitalise on multi-year geopolitical and macroeconomic trends. 


Global Macro Trading is the ability to distil global narratives into a thematic market hypothesis that you believe will play out in the long run. The aim is to analyse and interpret macroeconomic and geopolitical events and profit from the possible outcomes using the most optimal expression among a range of possible trading products – including currency, interest rates and equities.

With volatility, there are sure to be macro dislocations that will produce great opportunities. This programme is designed to help you identify these dislocations that can turn out to be the start of multi-year trends.

This skill is in demand given the changing investment landscape where Government and Central Bank Narratives, Polarisation In Politics and Geopolitical Risks drive markets. As such, this environment requires a shift from Passive Investing to Active Management for traders to maintain their edge.
