This course is a great introduction to currencies, terminology, exchange rates, and how the currency markets work. I really liked the careful, step by step explanations to introduce this rather complex business area.

It is a good basic course presented in 'easy to understand' way. Supporting material is also helpful. However, there's still a room for enrichment.

Excellent course for those of us who don't deal with foreign exchange on a regular basis. The 2 instructors were great together.
