Why did you choose to do the Amplify Trading Summer Internship Training Programme?
I attended the Summer Internship Training Programme as a part of their partnership with Morgan Stanley in order to provide me with a solid foundation in trading, asset management and market analysis. I was particularly looking forward to the quality and expertise of the individuals at the firm and I was eager to learn as much as I could about the industry.

What is the biggest highlight of the course?
The biggest highlight for me was being able to gain practical experience using Flowtrader and LiveTrader to trade real market-moving events in real-time.

What did you learn on the course and how did it help you land your role at Morgan Stanley?
The main thing I learnt on the course was not just being able to understand the market, but also being able to take a view on what you think would happen and how best would you be able to translate that view into the optimal amount of profit through your trades.

Has the course met or exceeded your expectations? How likely are you to recommend it to a friend?
The course has by far exceeded my expectations. I didn’t expect to meet with so many amazing people who were also taking the course. Being able to get to know them and expand my network was an invaluable opportunity I didn’t expect to get and one I’m grateful for.
