I looked into a few forex course and can highly recommend Alpha Trading and more specifically Hemal. The approach was firstly learning all the theory. It was then followed by daily sessions watching trades being placed and ongoing one to ones. I have come a long way through the journey and getting better every day thanks to the corrective coaching.
