Financial Market Outlook 10.1.2017

exam analystThe FTSE closed at a new high yesterday, at 7215 up 5.90, 0.08%.

Morrison Supermarkets was one of the main gainers of the market as the fourth largest supermarket in the UK did better than expected in the Christmas trading. The results indicate that the recent Christmas trading was the best performance in the last seven years. The Share price was up 4.2 %.

However, Tesco, the UK’s number one supermarket has emerged the winner with the fastest growing sales among the sector over the Christmas period. Tesco was up around 5% at the close of yesterday’s trading.

In New York, USA, THE Dow Jones did reach 20,000 – a new high but closed below the figure at the end of yesterday’s trading.

President Elect Donald Trump met with Jack Ma – CEO of Alibaba and promised to bring 1 million jobs to America. I believe trading deals and brining jobs back America as well as creating Jobs will be a strong point for Mr Trump.
Alibaba’s earnings for last quarter are due out on January 24.

Back on President Elect Trump; he has appointed his son in law Jared Kushner as his senior adviser. Mr Kushner played a key role in Mr Trump’s campaign for the election, and is married to Ivanka Trump.

Financial Training Department.

It’s been quite a while!

Yes. It’s been a while since our last blog.
This always happens at this time of the year.
The new academic year means new syllabuses.
New courses added to the portfolio.
New material to be written.
New trainers to induct.
And so we have had our hands completely full.
Pressure is beginning to ease so you can expect that normal blogging duty will resume soon.

New things to look out for…

CeMAP 2012/13 Academic year material now completed. So for those looking to do CeMAP distance learning can rest assured we will only be sending them current material.

DipFA Coursework and FactFind Training has been going very well. We’ve been closely monitoring the success rates of our students and can only recollect a few that have not passed! We have our new tutor , Paul, to thank for that! He really cares about the students and provides them with a lot of aftercare support. The rave reviews he has been getting are extremely well deserved.

Stocks, Shares and Investments courses and our Day Trading Forex programme has been running smoothly under the management of Umar. He has brought a very practical slant to the courses and his post course mentoring is just first class. It’s no wonder people are queueing up to join his classes.

We’ve also been working hard on a Business Analysis course which is scheduled to kick off October 28th. For this we have recruited the services of a very senior Business Analyst at Amazon. We get so many Software Testing Analysts looking for a career progression route…and for most – this is it!

Our Software Testing Essentials course has had some new additions to it. We’ve added an extra day on to the course thereby incorporating Test automation into the programme.

We now have beginners to advanced WordPress courses ranging from the basics (using WordPress.com) to intermediate and advanced levels using wordpress.org and all the benefits of flexibility to looking at how to build your own themes and understanding the php code that allows you to customise your wordpress site even more.

We are also trialling the ACA qualification for those looking to gain Adobe accreditation in either Photoshop or Dreamweaver.
A goal for the Adobe Certified Associate certification is to address the real world, entry-level skill expectations for web communication, rich media communication, and visual communication.

This certification is a credential that validates entry-level skills needed to plan, design, build, and maintain effective communications by using different forms of digital media.

The qualification is open to anyone who takes our Adobe Photoshop Next Step Course and Adobe Dreamweaver Next Step course.

So as you can see there’s lot’s to look forward to at Futuretrend this academic year.
