Karen Ryder

Karen Ryder

Head of Mentoring, Cape

Did my first trading course in 2010 and was hooked, since then I have completed numerous courses and continue to study new trading approaches - this is such a large and interesting field! Joined up with FX Varsity 5 years ago and agreed to put my mentoring skills to the test about 3 years ago. It is truly a pleasure to share my knowledge with others as they come fresh off the course or drop in for a back-to-basics refresher, all of our Tuesday evening sessions are great fun (we do chart analysis, look at how to use indicators and explore various strategies), it's very interactive with Q&A ongoing. These mentoring sessions develop a much needed sense of community in this field which is tricky to negotiate on your own. Come and see!

"Forex Varsity is one of those few companies that live up to their claims. They are truly supportive and go the extra mile to ensure that students are fully conversant with the subject. Never have I experienced a more patient lecturer than Chris. Nothing was too much trouble or too small or too insignificant, exceptional empathy. - Well done! Great company to be associated with."

"All I can say is WoW! I did the course over weekend. Chris is an awesome teacher with the ability to simplify things in a manner one can really understand. I'm really shocked at the amount of information I've absorbed, as I truly believed its impossibe (a weekend is WAY to short) Ive got to admit, I was wrong. Thx for your patience, Chris. People at the office are so friendly. I've attended my first mentorship class and it was way more then what I've expected. Keep up the good work guys. Your an awesome team guys, thx once again."

"Okay so this weekend I attended the course at FX Varsity, and as I was sitting there I realized how attending the course was and will always be one of the greatest decisions I made. Before attending the course Trading seemed like this one complicated process but Chris, The Trainer:) Simplified everything so beautifully. The weekend course was just the tip of the iceberg and I look forward to embarking on my Trading Journey with FX Varsity. I do not see how I could possibly go wrong with FX Varsity at my side."
