What are Indices?
Stock market indices measures changes in the economy or in financial markets, they also measure the peaks and troughs of stock, it is a tool used by many investors and financial managers to compare the return on specific investments and it can also be used to diversify investors portfolio.
What are Bonds?
The bond, also acknowledged by fixed income is a debt security, under which the issuer owes the holders a debt and is obliged to pay them an interest, also known as coupon, and to refund the holders at a pre-defined date. Very often the bond is negotiable, meaning that the instrument can be traded in the highly liquid secondary market.
What is a CFD?
The difference between the entry and exit price on a trade is the contract for difference (CFD), so with that in mind a CFD is a tradable instrument that tracks the movements of the underlying financial instrument.
CFDs on indices and bonds are listed on the basis of the market bid or ask price underlying to the security that they reflect.

But what is a skill development?
A skill development is the ability to carry out a task with pre-determined results often within a given amount of time and or energy.
What is mindset training?
The purpose of mindset training is to simplify perception, raise awareness, enhance skills, and ultimately open the mind to a totally new and expanded way of thinking.
Why is the mindset training so critical to trading?
I personally believe that trading is 90% mental and the rest 10% is execution. There is no doubt execution is extremely essential, however without the correct mindset, a trader does not have a foundation to build upon. So developing the mindset skill is critical for a trader that wants to live and endure over time by trading in the ruthless environment of the financial markets.
