WinFOREX consists of a series of PC based interactive self-study aids designed specifically with the ACI candidate in mind. WinFOREX is however equally appropriate for more general product education and financial market training for Treasury personnel.

The WinFOREX software follows the current syllabuses and examination formats as published by ACI – The Financial Markets Association. The software is being continuously updated following recent announcements from ACI regarding revisions to all syllabuses, examination formats and marking methodology for the electronically delivered ACI examinations during the forthcoming year. The modules’ multiple choice question and answer databases along with all accompanying texts are being updated to include the new and revised syllabuses as they are announced. The latest changes to the ACI Dealing Certificate New Version syllabus and examination format published in April 2020 have now been incorporated in the WinFOREX Module DCNV product available to purchase via the website online shop.

The WinFOREX interactive training software features dynamic on-screen feedback for all multiple-choice questions and during use reference can be made to an interactive Excel spreadsheet of ACI formulae to check calculations and a screen-viewable accompanying text for further explanation. The post-test WinFOREX debriefing reports have many uses including as an aid to dealer selection and assessment and are printable in the Site licence version of the product.

The ACI Dealing Certificate New Version (April 2020) syllabus and examination have been redesigned around five topics covering the full range of foreign exchange and precious metals, interest rate and derivative markets including theory questions and practical exercises on all instruments traded plus theory questions on the overall financial markets environment and applications – specifically risk and risk management issues. You can download the New Version syllabus from this website page’s footer.

The WinFOREX software product is structured in a way to assist the individual candidate in his/her self-study and is a natural accompaniment to the company’s published textbook “Global Financial markets and the ACI Dealing Certificate New Version”. The PC based Single User licence software product, aimed at the pocket of the individual candidate, is sold on a single load basis with 100 accesses to a database of over 1,600 interactive multiple choice ACI Dealing Certificate New Version 2020 ACI and ACI-style questions and answers, the ability to create random generated, correctly weighted and marked ‘mock’ (trial) examinations plus an interactive Excel spreadsheet of ACI formulae and a screen-viewable accompanying text. Information on a revised ACI Operations Certificate syllabus and examination format is expected from ACI some time later this year (2020).

The ACI Diploma New Version, announced in December 2019 is basically a re-release of the previous ACI Diploma September 2017 syllabus and examination format but now categorised under a smaller number of topic headings. The WinFOREX Module DIP product remains unchanged with a screen-viewable and printable accompanying text included at no extra cost. Please click here for further details. ACI advise that the ACI Diploma September 2017 syllabus and examination format will remain available to candidates for at least six months while the ACI Diploma New Version is offered as an alternative. For full details of ACI Education syllabuses and examination formats please visit the website https://www.acifma.com which will always have the latest information available.

Comprehensive accompanying text books complementing the WinFOREX Modules DCNV - (Global Financial markets and the ACI Dealing Certificate - 472 pages), DC  (Financial markets and the ACI Dealing Certificate - 440+ pages) and OPS (Treasury Operations Handbook - 400 pages) and are described separately on this website and are available to purchase on-line.

The original WinFOREX product has been available since 1996 and has been sold to institutions and candidates on a world-wide basis and many examination successes have been recorded - including a large number of distinctions and passes with merit in the ACI Dealing Certificate, ACI Operations Certificate and ACI Diploma.

The WinFOREX product, written under MS Windows, is now delivered on an installation USB. Although not designed for Apple Mac, along with many other MS programs, it will run under Parallels Desktop 13 (separately available to purchase from www.parallels.com).

Even a candidate who is actively involved in the day to day financial markets needs a certain amount of revision and assistance in exam techniques to ensure he/she is fully prepared for the examination - where WinFOREX is so useful. The PC based approach replicating the electronic delivery format of the examination proper makes WinFOREX UNIQUE and even more relevant to a candidate’s training and revision requirements giving him/her the ability to "hone" their question management techniques to maximise their use of time in the real life examination. The software brings the candidate up to speed in all aspects of the syllabuses and the differing examination techniques required for the ACI Dealing Certificate New Version (Module DCNV), ACI Dealing Certificate (Module DC), ACI Operations Certificate (Module OPS)ACI FX Global Code Certificate (Module FXGC)* and ACI Diploma (Sept 2017) / ACI Diploma New Version (Module DIP) - all screen based multiple choice question formats (varying examination time limits and numbers of questions and * only 3 multiple choice answer options).

WinFOREX Module DIP (ACI Diploma Sept 2017 / ACI Diploma New Version) software replicates the format of the current ACI Diploma examination 107 questions but is equally appropriate for candidates for the ACI Diploma New Version with the same question database used for its 100 question examination.

The WinFOREX system

In all modules of WinFOREX interactive question libraries permit the user to test overall understanding selecting any number of questions at random, on a syllabus topic by topic basis or by creating a full “mock” (trial) examination. The trainee’s preferred system access is selected on each occasion via the test selection screen (figure 2 - ACI Dealing Certificate DCNV as an example).  

    figure 2: WinFOREX test selection screen      (Module DC NV) 

Multiple choice answer examination questions are displayed as selected (figure 3) with the trainee having the option to answer or pass (for later review). When an answer has been selected and confirmed the system will respond - if correct... a smiley face and congratulations, if incorrect... a sad face with dynamic on-screen feedback on the correct answer available on selection of the button. A Brief explanation of the correct answer is also displayed in the lower blue section of the screen.

If ACI EXAM Is selected a completely different set of questions is generated on each access (correctly weighted and marked topic by topic) which rather than instant on-screen feed-back after each question, on completion of the test a breakdown of topic by topic performance is provided (figure 4 – following correct ACI marking methodology) with the opportunity to review questions attempted one by one on-screen with dynamic feedback.

WinFOREX also incorporates an interactive Excel based spreadsheet utility (figure 5) including all ACI formulae (hard copy available to candidates during the examination) which can be invoked from the main test screen for use by candidates to assist understanding of data elements required to complete syllabus calculations - vital preparation and revision for the calculation question baskets in all examinations.

For further reference, per module dynamic screen responses and hard-copy debriefing and assessment reports (Site licence) are complemented by a comprehensive accompanying text (over 460 A4 pages for the ACI Diploma) available as a screen-viewable pdf file via the book icon on the test screen and a printable system guide on the WinFOREX installation USB.
