The London Academy of Trading (@LATlondon), the UK’s first accredited trading academy, has launched its LAT Xchange, a new global trading forum and community.
Exclusively for LAT students and alumni, the new forum provides an online platform, enabling them to interact with one another in real time, as well as with LAT’s tutors and traders. Students and alumni are able to share ideas and trade set-ups while staying up to date on the latest news and analysis in the company of fellow traders.
Allowing 24 hours a day interaction, the platform also helps alleviate the feelings of isolation and stress when trading at home alone.
Invitations were sent out to an initial cohort of 250 students and alumni at the end of last month and more than 60% signed up to the platform within the first week.
“This is a new and very exciting development,” says Paddy Osborn, Academic Dean and Managing Director of LAT. “The response from students has been fantastic and these forums are providing a perfect platform for students to accelerate their learning and for alumni to stay in touch with us as they develop their trading careers.”
Going forward, LAT is looking to increase the number of features and functions of the platform over the coming months, as well as making the service available to an increasing number of students and alumni.
