For Modern Traders
I want to KickStart my Trader Education Trader Coaching Trader Funding Trading Networking and Empower my Future™
Comprehensive as our education is, trader education is only part of the overall equation. This is where so many new traders fall down – they think that, by simply sitting a course, they’ll become successful traders.
That’s, of course, completely wrong – in order to develop from market analyst to market trader, you must gain real-world experience and bridge the gap between theory and practical application.
With Live Trading Sessions, Access to Professionally Analyzed Charts updated in Real-Time, Group Coaching, Psychology Sessions, workshops and more, you’re not going to want to miss out on this part of the process – it’s essential to moving from being a great analyst to becoming a great trader. Check it out!
Then there’s Trader Funding. The way we see it is: you prove your talent, we’ll leverage our capital – Don’t lose more than 4% in a day, or 5% overall, and keep 75% of your profits. Simple.
No min or max position counts, trading days, combines, challenges, or other silly rules, and with FX, Stocks, Indices, Commodities and even the major Cryptos available, feel free to trade whatever markets you trade best.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The cold, difficult reality is that over 90% of new retail forex traders FAIL. I don’t mean, they lose here and there, or they have setbacks… They FAIL. The reason? Well, studies have suggested that it’s because most new traders don’t actually take the time and invest in themselves by acquiring a quality education before trading.
The reality is that successful traders do what unsuccessful ones are unable/unwilling to do – and that starts with acquiring a quality education.
If you want to be successful, like with anything, the first step is to get educated. Educate yourself on how the market works; the language of the markets (technical analysis); risk management; and trader psychology, as these are the most important components of the makeup of a successful trader. Our Ultimate Forex Trading Course covers all of this and more. Check it out.
Maybe. Maybe not. It depends. That’s the honest answer. See, at KickStart, we’re able to work with anybody, but we’re unwilling to work with just anybody – because the fact is, forex trading (and trading generally) is NOT for everyone.
You have to be willing/able to think differently – to see the world differently than most do. You must be able to change your relationship with money, and therefore, your perspective on it, and you must be willing (and have a desire, of course) to accept that there are risks involved, and that trading is not for everyone. If you need help figuring out if trading is right for you – come join us in one of our upcoming seminars, or get in touch – we offer a free 15-min consultation with a member of our trading team.

The Forex, or Foreign Exchange, is the most liquid market in the world, meaning, you’ll never have an issue of lack of buyers and sellers, with over $5.3 TRILLION USD moved through the markets daily.
Unlike stocks and other markets, it is decentralized, meaning there is no central exchange, everything is transacted virtually and from anywhere in the world. It is a leveraged market – which can, of course, be both a tremendous blessing and hideous curse. Used correctly, leverage can greatly enhance your returns. Used incorrectly, and you can get margin-called (where your losses exceed your initial investment). That’s why, it’s super important to LEARN how to trade first – not just what to trade, but HOW to trade. For full details on the risk associated with Forex trading, visit our “Legal Stuff” section of the site by clicking here.
KickStart Trading is a new, better way to learn how to trade and develop into consistent, disciplined, refined, highly profitable traders. We are traders, ourselves – so, we live and breathe this stuff.
For us, your success is our passion – we get up each morning and go to bed each evening with a very clear mission and focus – to graduate the best traders in the industry, and in so doing, to become the final word in trader training and development.
Yes! Absolutely! Even if we might not be hiring right at the moment you happen to be reading this, we are trying to build the best team in Forex – so, naturally, there will be opportunities to join the team in various professional capacities as we continue to grow.
You bet we do. And it’s one of the best in the business, if we may say so!

We take a very different approach to trading and to learning to trade, as we are genuinely interested in bearing witness to your earned success. Trader education is important – in fact, it’s the most important first step! However, it’s only that – a first step. Becoming a successful trader involves so much more than just simply enrolling in a course – and it doesn’t matter how good the course is – there is no single course out there that, by itself, will make you a good trader. That comes from experience.
So, we focus on the three areas which are essential to finding success and consistency in the markets – education, application (this is the experience part, or applying theory to the real world), and trader funding.

We always explain to people that, whether you find a company like ours, or you decide to go it alone, you are going to pay to get educated and develop your experience in the markets. The latter is a lot more effective; the former is a lot more expensive.
That’s the reality – and there’s no way around it. The difference between going it alone and joining a company like KickStart is this – experience, guidance, support. See, going it alone can actually work out to be a lot more costly in the long run – we leverage our years of experience and expertise to greatly reduce your learning curve, and to help you avoid the most common mistakes almost all new traders make (and have to learn from the hard way)
