90% of new Forex traders FAIL. Why? Well, studies have shown it’s because most new traders don’t actually take the time and invest in themselves by acquiring a quality education before trading.

There is a lot of information out there – some good, some bad. For most, though, this is not enough, and there is no substitute for acquiring a proper, comprehensive education and an experienced mentor. 

If you do not have experience trading, or you’ve got very little experience trading, or you are not achieving / have not achieved consistent profitability, you should consider pursuing an education from a reputable provider.

One of our core principles is that acquiring an education and finding success in the markets shouldn’t cost you your life’s savings. So, we’ve gone to great lengths to deliver as much value and quality training we can for the least amount of money possible. That’s why you can obtain a membership from as little as £79 p/m – .
