Forex Reviews: Paul Tillman from North Carolina, US

Forex Reviews: Paul Tillman from North Carolina, US

Forex Reviews Andrew Mitchem: Hi, everybody. Its Andrew Mitchem here, The Forex Trading Coach. Any today, I'm joined by Paul Tillman, who's been a client of mine at Forex Training Coach for the last two years. Welcome along, Paul. Good to see you.

Paul Tillman: Hey, thanks, Andrew, for having me.

Andrew Mitchem: Now, it's great to have you here. Paul, just wondering if you could just start by giving everybody an introduction of who you are, where you live, what you do.

Paul Tillman: Sure. My name is Paul Tillman. I've got a lovely wife and two kids, 3 and 1/2 going four and a new born, who's about two months now. And I work for a pharmaceutical company. I'm a statistician. So the numbers with trading and stats is all good, and I love doing that.

Andrew Mitchem: Excellent. Thank you. And so, Paul, just let everybody know, if you could, please, when you first looked into forex. How did you find out about forex? Did you have any prior background in anything to do with the industry? What was your beginning within the forex market?

Paul Tillman: I was introduced to it probably about 11, 12 years ago. There was a group of guys in my church who knew about it and introduced me to it. And it's kind of an unfortunate situation a little bit. There was a little bit of learning about trading and the market, but the main focus of it was a multilevel marketing network part of it, which was unfortunate. And so I didn't know too much about trading, got a little bit, tidbits here and there. But it fell apart in about a year. And I was left with spending a few thousand dollars and knowing maybe 10%, 15% of what I need to know.

Andrew Mitchem: OK, that's an unfortunate start. But did you then obviously decide to stay with forex? There must have been a reason why you thought that this was something to pursue maybe further.

Paul Tillman: Yeah. I was happy to get away from the networking, trying to convince people to join the course. It wasn't much of a focus on the trading aspect, which I really wanted to learn. And so the course that we were given, it had some good things, but there was no one really to teach it. There was no one really that followed up with you or coached you. So it was a lot of trying to figure it out on my own and throwing up strategy after strategy and thinking, oh, this can work and that can work and risk whatever part of my account I feel like during that trade. And so it was just — I kept going with it, but it kept getting frustrating year after year.

Andrew Mitchem: OK. So that went on for quite a while, then.

Paul Tillman: Yeah, it was probably off and on for probably the next seven or eight years. I would get into it and they get away from it. And I had my main job and other thing going on. But the passion remained there. And I really wanted to figure it out. And I just — I kept being a break-even trader. There were some wins, some losses, but overall not profitable on the long term.

Andrew Mitchem: So what happened, then? You got to a point where you probably got frustrated, I'm guessing. And you put so much time into it you didn't want to give up, would be another guess. So what happened then? Something triggered in your mind or you saw something to make you look elsewhere for help?

Paul Tillman: Absolutely. So it would have been around the beginning in 2015 when I was like, OK, either I need to figure out something that's going to make me profitable, or I need to lay this aside and maybe focus on something else. And I picked up a few things that I was trying to learn, strategies. And I knew price action was the way I think I wanted to go. And that was where my brain was leaning towards. [INAUDIBLE] there's some things here. And just kind of introducing how I found you, I actually just did a simple YouTube search for price action and forex. And your set of videos was one of the first ones that actually came up.

Andrew Mitchem: OK. So you found this person almost on the other side of the world to you. I'm in New Zealand. You're hours and hours away on an airplane in America. Did that put you off at all? You're thinking, I'm in America, he's in New Zealand — was that an issue?

Paul Tillman: Well, from previous experience, I was truly a little bit scarred from the first experience. And I knew the number that's thrown out, 90%, 95% of traders fail. I knew that was the going number. And there's all these signal services out there and robots and people and all of that. And so I was a little hesitant, but I liked the style you were teaching. And you just came off very, very knowledgeable and just kind of like I could already trust you. The New Zealand thing, it wasn't a huge deal. I mean, obviously I would have preferred somebody the US or Canada or somewhere in the same time frame. But I decided, wow, this guys is from another part of the world, it looks like he's got things figured out. I researched you to death — [LAUGHING]– with just reviews. And I read everything I could because I didn't want to make another bad decision where I was just throwing money away. Absolutely. [INAUDIBLE] as a forex trader.

Andrew Mitchem: OK, cool. Thank you. So you decided to give it a go. You jumped on board with me. So as we said, that was around two years ago. So you jumped on board, got into the membership site. How did it go from there? Like what was your first experience when you started?

Paul Tillman: Well, the very first thing I did was — and this was just a testament to the trustworthiness and me thinking this could actually work. And I've mentioned before, when you e-mailed me back when you were on holiday, that spoke volumes to me, just that little one thing. And so I liked the webinar that you had and the way you introduced and presented the information. I said, oh, wow, I know this, this, and this, but there are some things here that would really fill the gaps of my training. And so I e-mailed you a couple of times, I read some more reviews, and then decided to go ahead and sign up. And kind of from day one, things– of course, you're always nervous spending a little bit of money to try to better yourself financially and this new, great thing that you want to invest in. But the set-up of the software, your hand was being held to start out.bI had not been on MT4 before. I had been on different platforms and things. And the course just really laid out step by step, if you knew basically next to nothing about trading. Now, I did know a decent amount, so that put me ahead of the curve. But all of the videos in the course and the text and everything was just clearly explained, so it was easy to learn. And if I did have trouble on something, someone on your support team or yourself was there to answer an email within a half day, a day at most. And that was just great, as I was going through the course.

Andrew Mitchem: Yeah, excellent. Thank you. So you've got into the course. You went through the course. You got the strategy. How long would you say before you started to place your first trades? And was that on a demo, or did you jump straight into a live account?

Paul Tillman: So I was I was a little stubborn and went ahead with the live account. But I started with the daily trades, which is one of the first [INAUDIBLE]. You get these daily trades every single day. You get your entry, your stop-loss, and your take profit. And you can make money and learn as you're learning the bigger course, which I really liked. So almost immediately I was putting daily trades in and [INAUDIBLE] up on the reasons, hey, this is what you're looking at, this is really the strategy. And yeah, so from there, it was it was pretty quick. And I got used to the other chart times, which was great. I had never heard of, hey, you can make a 6-, 8-, or 12-hour chart. Yes, and that was amazing to me. That's so many more opportunities for trades. So I did that with the indicator and converter and was just on my way, saying, all right, let me go look for trades and get on this thing.

Andrew Mitchem: Yeah, great. So that leads on to an interesting question, then. Apart from results, which we'll talk about shortly, a lot of people jump into trading, and they believe they should be taking trades all the time or [INAUDIBLE] sets out to say, you've got to sit and watch five-minute charts or one-minute charts even. How have you found the live trading on an ongoing now with two years later with fitting it in, living in a different time zone to me, with your current work? You've got two young kids. How does all that fit in together? And is it practical?

Paul Tillman: Well, it is definitely practical. You just have it's all about just being on a schedule. And luckily the New York close that is our daily time frame is the time zone I'm in, which is great. And yeah, I don't have to get up at 2:00, 3:00 in the morning to trade. What is taught is more of the longer time frames, so some one-hour, but four-hour and above, generally. And so you only have to go check your charts once every four hours or once every eight hours or, if you want, just once a day.

Andrew Mitchem: If you've got a busy week, you can spend 15, 20 minutes a day and check multiple time times and be just about as profitable as you want to be. And you're not in front of the charts for hours on a five-minute chart or a 15-minute chart. And when you have work and, as you mentioned, kids and a family, you don't want to do that. And so that was one of the things that really attracted me. If you're on a four-hour chart, you don't have to go check every hour and a half. You just check it once every four hours or six hours. And you know what? If you're asleep, you're asleep and you missed it. There are a lot of times, a lot of opportunities, especially with the added time-frame charts that you can find trades. And you might only be on four or five hours in a week total.

Paul Tillman: Yeah, absolutely. And one thing that I've noticed when I've looked through your trading results, is because you do favor those longer time-frame charts, the 4-, 6-, 8-, 12-hours, daily charts, the reward-to-risk that you're achieving is so much greater than people who trade shorter time-frame charts, and they're almost scalping and getting less than one-to-one trades. You're getting two-, three-, four-to-one reward-to-risk trades. So getting your high returns when you hit profit, you've got the controlled risk, and you're not spending much time doing it.

Paul Tillman: Absolutely. And those are probably some of the very few things that I was never really taught or didn't really run into too much. I mean, people don't realize if you're getting two-, two-and-a-half-, three-, four-to-one trades, if you become a 50% success trader, you can make as much money as you want. Because that risk-reward is there. I mean, you don't have to have too many successful trades. You can fail more than you succeed on trades and still make a lot of money. And that blows people's minds. But that's great. And if you get more succeeding trades than failing trade, then the sky is just the limit. And it's great, and the risk management is always key, risking that same small percentage every trade. And that's probably one of the number-one fails of why people can't succeed and they quit early or whatnot.

Andrew Mitchem: Yeah, absolutely. So leading on through results, then, Paul, so what are you– like do you have a figure of what you're averaging per month or per year since you've been with me?

Paul Tillman: Well, my goal has been average around 3% to 5% a month. And I've always said that I can make 1% a week on average. And that sounds crazy, because if you don't compound that, that's 50% a year, which is a mind-boggling number. I mean, I think people would kill to get just 15% to 20%. And you can easily do that on just one time frame alone. You can spend that 15, 20 minutes we were talking about [INAUDIBLE] trades and make 20%, 25%. And you're spending an hour or two hours a week at your charts only. So that's kind of on a weekly and monthly basis what I've been going for. And I've been able to achieve that and more, and it's really exciting.

Andrew Mitchem: Yeah, excellent. Well, that's fantastic news. So thank you for sharing that. And just to let everybody else know that Paul– because of his results, we've decided to start to work together, and Paul has come on board with the Forex Trading Coach. And Paul, just share where we're up to now, if you could, please.

Paul Tillman: Oh, sure. So at the end of last year, I contacted Andrew, and I said, things are going well. I'm having some profitable weeks and months, and things are going great. But you know what? I would want to do more. And to be honest, I'm not trading a several-hundred-thousand-dollar account. And so it's not something I can totally live on yet. It can't be a full-time job replacement, although I'd like that to be one day. So we end up working together. And earlier this month, I officially joined. And it started out with me wanting to run the forums. We've had some forum site launched– it was end of last summer– where people can go and ask questions and post trades. And it helped my trading. It was already going fairly well, but it helped my trading immediately with the forums, seeing what other people were saying. When you're posting trades, you're more sharp, and you're just looking at different things. There are hundreds of people on the forum, and so I was able to help, asked Andrew, hey, I would love to help moderate these and send a lot of screenshots and answer a bunch of questions. So it started out like that. And then I was hoping to do just a little bit more, and so now, we have US webinars that– I ran my first one last week, beginning of March. And they are going to be going on every two weeks in the US sessions. And coupled with Andrew's there will be a webinar session every week for clients, that if you can't attend live, that you can view the recording of. And I just think that's great. And just being able to answer questions, be support, and working with Andrew, it's been a great thing. And there are wonderful things to come.

Andrew Mitchem: Wonderful. Well, Paul, thank you very much for sharing your story so far, your journey as a forex trader.  Absolutely. I'm absolutely thrilled that after two years you've gone from at a stage where trading was just a hope and a dream, I suppose, after many years of frustration, through to making, like you said, 5% or more per month consistently with very low risk. And now it's great to have you on board. And the forum site, just wanted to let people know that a lot of forums– when you think of forums in the forex world, they all end up with people arguing  and someone dominating and other people feeling like they can't contribute. Because our forum site is for clients only, everybody understands the strategy. Everybody understands the course. And so when we're posting trades there, these are trades that everybody can see, can understand, can take, and can learn from. Some of the trades are posted in advance of the trade actually being posted or being placed. And others are with the benefit of hindsight, because you can't post every single one in real time. And then with the webinars, because they are live webinars, myself and Paul, we're placing trades in real time in front of hundreds of people. And that's a great, great way for people to learn. Because you're hearing someone talk about the market right now in real time without any benefit of hindsight. You see us placing a trade with real money, live accounts. And so, Paul, by having the ability to help out people in your time zone around the world or later in the afternoon if you're in Europe, plus people who can trade the morning session and the European session with my webinars, as you said, we now have– every single week, someone can jump on to live two-hour trading room session. It just helps to speed up that learning process for everybody.

Paul Tillman: Absolutely. Yeah. It can be a daunting task getting into forex. And just having extra sessions and forums where you don't– like you said, you don't feel pressure or feel like you have to post winning trades or you should be at some certain level. It covers a wide range of somebody just coming in and somebody who is more experienced but is having trouble. And it just helps everybody all around. And I think it helps you and I as well, just as traders and communicators and teaching and helping other people.

Andrew Mitchem: Absolutely. So Paul, thank you for your time today. Great to have a chat with you. And if anybody watching this would like to get in contact, my email address is [email protected]. And you can contact Paul directly at [email protected]. Thank you very much, Paul. Have a great evening your side. And I'll enjoy the rest of the day my side.

Paul Tillman: All right. Thanks, Andrew. Take care.

Andrew Mitchem: Good talking to you.

Forex Reviews: Tim Cash from Sydney, Australia

Forex Reviews: Tim Cash from Sydney, Australia

Forex Reviews Andrew Mitchem: Hi, it's Andrew Mitchem here, The Forex Trading Coach and I'm joined by Tim today. Hello to Tim.

Tim Cast: Hello Andrew.

Andrew Mitchem: How are you? 

Tim Cast: I'm fantastic! How are you? 

Andrew Mitchem: Really good. Thank you, Tim. Tim could you just start by introducing yourself please letting everybody know who you are and where you live pl


Tim Cast: Yeah, sure. My name is Tim Cash. I reside in Sydney, Australia. Originally from the United Kingdom and I've been living in Australia for 16 years.

Andrew Mitchem: Okkay, thank you. And could you let everybody know a brief history regarding your forex trading experience prior to taking my course. 

Tim Cast: Yeah. It's about three or four years ago. I had a coach who assisted me in my corporate business life. And we were talking about platform of investment. He's a very insightful gent in my coach. He gave me an overview of forex trading and then went off and explore and what I did is when I say explore I just started trading myself right. And it didn't work because I really didn't know what I was doing. So I was just speculating it was what I would say a 100 percent speculation and all I did was use accounts from HSBC to transfer money between different currencies. And the expectation was is it the Aussie couldn't go any higher and therefore there would be a drop and so maybe it's the Australian dollar go back from being apparently with the US dollar back to say 80. 

Tim Cast: It didn't it just went higher. And so that system didn't work. So then I started looking at what was available in the marketplace and the type of course that I looked at initially was from that. Meant you went on a course initially. A quite a high 7 to gain entry to the course and then you be invited to various residential get togethers if you like and where you had the big talk. More, more and more and I always felt that there will be margin taking in everything that I did and as I mentioned earlier there were the entry levels was quite significant so. It would pass five times the level the entry level for trying Andrew's programmes. I was a bit I was very cagey. To be fair they didn't push me very hard. They just said it might not be for you. So I was appreciative of that. However when something is floured up to involve going on lots of residential courses and get togethers I just feel as though there's this good profit to be taken for a course organizers which means that you diminishing any potential margin and you're not keeping the principle of ethics training simple which it clearly is. So I was standing on the beach in the Sutherland Shire of Sydney in Facebook cronulla and my daughter was getting surf lessons and a guy. I suppose it was a little bit of serendipity. A guy walked over and he just started talking to me. He was a he's son was having surf lessons and he was there with his wife and he came over he said, “Well, I'm a full time trader” and I said, “I've been looking into this and that explain a little bit about what I've been looking at and he goes I wouldn't do any of that. Look up a guy called Andrew Mitchem”. And then he said to me in parting essentially he said, “Look, just take your time in setting yourself up and learn it. Take take a few months if you need to to get to know. But look up Andrew Mitchem, he's great. So I went to the computer and looked up Andrew Mitchem and then a couple of days later, Andrew and I connected and we are today. 

Andrew Mitchem: Fantastic! What an amazing story. So really it was because of that recommendation I suppose what you saw from the site that made you decide to take my course.

Tim Cast: Yes, well I like to regard myself as a risk taker but I think that's just to offset the fact that you know am I fearful investing too much money. Initially when I don't know enough about it. And yet I'm not somebody who couldn't start throwing money here and there because you know I've got family commitments that I need to look after. So when the investments of 10,000 dollars to go with the alternative option came about. I thought let's just do it. Let me throw myself into it but it never felt right. It never felt intuitively correct. One thing I've learned in my life was that intuition is very powerful. And if I don't listen it I tend to end on the wrong position. So some good life lessons there. So what I did is I read it. I looked at the website that you Andrew. Enjoy the conversation that we initially had in you. And what happened is it was a very engaging conversation I'm sure a number of your clients fine this. Because you're very engaging and have a genuine desire to assist with the outcome. So when I looked then at the prices and the auctions I thought well, this is a very sensible place to start and I saw that it was a way of me overcoming my fears of investing too much money. I appreciate this different types of packages but I came in a package that was taking the video courses and plus Andrew and I are talking about doing more together now. I felt it was the right level and sense level and that's where I, that's where I started and I felt good intuitively it felt correct.

Andrew Mitchem: Okay, so what are your favourite parts of the course. Would you say.

Tim Cast: I think the term the way is structured if you look at the. If you look at the way the course is set up so the software that provides the different mediums so you get the actual website. So the website is neat and tidy. I like that it's not overly complex to have to jump around not too many words and that would take straight away because I'm a guy who likes to keep things simple. And secondly when you go in to Wistia. I think I mentioned it correct there it's it's a really simple piece of software as well web based software that allows you to use that really easily. And so that gets back to the tickets as well and any information is supplied platform that you use to supply the information is really straightforward. Once you have to log in each time. It means that everything gets updated and you've got a degree of security as well so there's no problem with that. So I think when you add all that up plus you've got your Help Desk, plus you've got the opportunity to have Q&A, plus you get actually call you if you really want to. And I think that's a great thing. I think that all comes together and makes makes it easy. The only thing that I would say would be that you've got 80 pages of course note and you got a guide that I think is complete 10 pages off the top of my head.

Tim Cast: So you've got 90 pages to get through and probably a lot of busy people out there so including myself. Choosing how to do that and breaking it down into manageable chunks without losing momentum. It's something that is quite challenging, but the second someone going through it which is which I find prudent. I'm finding love easier and also looking at the videos. I'm finding that the videos are really complementary. Once I've been through one. So the second time around is really really quite straightforward and it puts the jigsaw together. So drives your question and it's the way it's all laid out the software platforms and where these things are used. And as you go through it for a second time it really just starts here at home and you start to realize that the basic principles aren't overly complex which is something I really like looking at for that how are you going to get there. I really get it. And you can then start making decisions about what type of trades they're going to look at. But I am one of these types of answers where I probably need to put it all together rather than rather than try to do this. And then I'm okay. I'd like to know how does this fit together to talking to Andrew today. Reminds just to explore a little bit further and then say “How does it work? What time do you start? When you do this? when you do that? What does this mean? And what would happen if this happened?” and it becomes a little bit formulaic but you end up in a position where you know what each respective action means. So that's the way that's the way my mind works and I feel that that works for me. 

Tim Cast: I'm not the most patient person in the world and because of course isn't over there long as it is 500 pages are probably struggled to get through it because it's it's got 90 pages. I think it's I think it's a sensible sensible length and hopefully you put it all together and clearly understand it. I don't know but I'm getting there. 

Andrew Mitchem: Great. Thank you. And so how do you think that the trading and taking the course and Forex trading in general is going to help you with your longer term financial goals. 

Tim Cast: Well, mine's a non-negotiable position because as as would be the case for a lot of people. I've been through a couple of relationships and you know I have beautiful children. I got children living in different parts of Australia. I need to have flexibility. So at some point through my property business which is my profession and also through this I want to have the flexibility to be based anywhere. So I really need to study hard, listen to Andrew and get to understand this as an expert and become what I call professional trader because that will give me the best opportunity and I really want to back myself and not divert from this is a principle goal for 2012. I've only just started so I've got a little bit in 2011 but 2012 is where it really starts to happen. What I've done is I've set myself a goal of making X amount of profit in year 1 in 2012 calendar year and I want to get to that you get then learning about cash management along the way and the sensibility in the premises that Andrew guides of provides us guidance and then to made a certain profit which I believe is completely feasible. 

Tim Cast: And then by 2014 to build it up to a higher and high level than that. And at that point to give me the option to be able to be based anywhere and have more flexibility and freedom in where I live and work. And that compliments me seeing my children and that helps compliments my needs to travel back to the United Kingdom where I also have family and it's important that I get that so that all around contact with my family because they're very important to me. So I got my three big goals for 2012 which in my foreign exchange trading, to see my children regularly and also to travel. And this is the best platform. This is it for me. This is the best platform. And I think I've got a medium and a way to do this that will get you there and staying focused will achieve great results or being well.

Andrew Mitchem: Fantastic! Well, Tim I wish you very good profitable year. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with everybody and good luck for the coming year. 

Tim Cast: Thank you Andrew. Appreciate it.

Forex Reviews: Val Pasquale from Melbourne, Australia

Forex Reviews: Val Pasquale from Melbourne, Australia

Forex Reviews Val Pasquale: Hi my name is Val. I'm from Melbourne Australia. And first of all I really want to say how excited I am that Andrew is leading strongly towards coming and doing a weekly or weekly course for us in Melbourne because my hands up for that I think that will be really really great. So I have been full time trading now for two years. Where I started from was with three other courses that I was desperately looking for something that I had seen a glint of from a friend who actually introduced me to trade in the beginning. And telling me how wonderful trading was and it just seemed like something I would like to do. So I started to look at different courses joined up. I spent a lot of money in that first year and came away absolutely frustrated I just couldn't get something that made a lot of sense when I was asking questions I wouldn't get my answers back from them if it was too slow. It was no real down to earth help from the people who were running the trade. It was majorly the company who had traders and they really didn't know what they were doing because they weren't taking the same trade as. As they were talking to us clients about. So I was reading a book called “Trading in the Zone” by Mark Douglas and I came across the word trading coach and I thought these are new words so I started Googling that research in it and I came up with Andrew and a Forex Trading Coach. Checked it out, like what I saw rang him or emailed him, Skype on him. I'm not quite sure how and I found he was in New Zealand and I just happened to be going to New Zealand the next month. So I organised to have a one on one with him and Andrew drove down in Hamilton. I was up in Auckland and Andrew drove all the way up and was really knocking on my door like 15 minutes even before the time allocated and we just spent the whole day just going through the whole course. And Andrew was just so helpful and informative and I just believe he just went above and beyond what anybody would be would be asking or a trading coach.

Val Pasquale: He downloaded everything for me because I'm kind of a nerdy when it comes to computers. And by the time he left I was extremely frazzled but I was up and running. I started on my demo account in the beginning playing around with Andrew's dailies. And now new year has gone by and when I first started trading live I thought you know what. It's okay I'll just stick with Andrew's dailies. That's okay I'm happy just to do those trades never ever ever thinking that I would ever be able to do my own trades and I started playing with my demo and thinking “Oh my God! I think I can do this and I can remember doing my first trade”. My own first and nothing I even emailed Andrew and went “Oh my God! I make some money.” Really really excited and realized that. “You know what, all you have to do is just go with the indicators. And you know there's some obvious rules that you need to take notice of and you can start basic. You don't have to be you know a technical trader. You don't need to have to know all the things you see words which I just get a bit confused about.” I see what I see and and that's what I do. I really don't have a real method. I'm just going with Andrew's daily trades and now his weekly trades which I love. Particularly since I've been away a lot and don't have time to get on and have a look at the computer throughout the day on my trade so I've just been taking Andrews dailies and weeklies and just setting as Andrew's say set and forget. And then the next morning or whenever I'm able to get back on and I'm so pleasantly surprised because I think I emailed Andrew and said “I picked up five grand one day with doing nothing like putting on some weeklies and leaving them.

Andrew Mitchem: Is that on a live account, Vel?.

Val Pasquale: Oh yes. And and more. Plus I been absolutely more than that but I just find that even if you don't know really how to trade you need some basics. You just take hold of these daily trades his weekly trades go with him, go with the webinars. And it's something that you just grow. You start to come get more familiar what you. You become more confident and that's certainly where I started. No confidence whatsoever. I use [INAUDIBLE] my computer and I've been emailing Andrew all the time. “I don't understand this. But hey you know I do it a few times.

Andrew Mitchem: How long did it take Val between as you taking the course because after the one on one you then also purchase the video course. Didn't you? How long after doing that? Or, first of all I suppose why did you do the video cause as well. Have you found it. And then how long did it take you before you're comfortable to go live. How long since you have been live?

Val Pasquale: Because I started in the November and that's when Andrew set me up. It was in the January. Then I began live trading. Nearly the whole year. I'm not quite sure when I purchased the trading videos, training video should i say.

Andrew Mitchem: It think its around January, February time.

Val Pasquale: Was it really.

Andrew Mitchem: I think it was. So it took you about say two month and then you're ready to go live and you been live ever since.

Val Pasquale: I know I haven't found a problem what I love about the videos is that I can go back there's any time and just relive them. Something I don't understand or something that's not working for me. I'm just going back there and clicking on that particular training video. Listening to it, writing my notes, going back, switching back and forth to the platform and going “Yep, I can understand what you're saying and going to play on it. I always go back and play first. Some of my favourites the webinar. I love the webinar but I never listen to it live. I like to take that. So then I can stop start. Sometimes I've got something going on and I need you. Like I'll be waiting and watching about 15, 20 minutes of it but then I'll come back and I'll just continue watching it and I can come back and watch it any time I like. That something I really really love about it. Love my MBA. My Monday Breakout. Can't wait for Monday. Thought I hate Mondays because then you can't do anything until the actual markets come out and I hate I think thats the withdraw symptoms horrible.

Andrew Mitchem: Waiting for the market to start.

Val Pasquale: Yeah, on a Monday.

Andrew Mitchem: So most people love Fridays. I'm the same as you. I hate Fridays because it's the end of the week and there is no more price.

Val Pasquale: Yeah, I know. I hate it.

Andrew Mitchem: And profitable wise I like Val, you find the course profitable is made the money back that you spent and you're going well now.

Val Pasquale: 100 fold. This is all I do. And I don't do it even though I would say I'm a full time trader. I'm not far from my trading work throughout my life not my life around my trading. And that can work because of it's so simple to do in putting on your sick leave trade. You can go off to the holiday and do something else and come back and be making money. And we were as in the world can you do that. So and on holiday. We're asking you to go make five grand overnight. Thank you very much.

Andrew Mitchem: You pay for the course more in one day.

Val Pasquale: Exactly, so yes, profitable and then I'm always out there I kind of feel like I'm one of those people of who have found God you know not just talking anyone one who actually listen about doing this. Why would you want to do anything. [INAUDIBLE] 20, 40, 50 hours a week when you could be doing that. My sister is about to move up to the Gold Coast and I'm saying to you don't need to work hard as you do. Do this course. Start doing some part time trading, then work towards it to concentrate on it more so that it can become your life. Give yourself the freedom, give yourself the financial independence. You know it doesn't cost a 10 cent once you signed up in your [INAUDIBLE]. You know there's nothing to you've got to pay. So I just highly recommend to do this because for me there was nothing else I've just got I've finally found an issue my life has taken me fifty six years to actually find something that I know about that I'm dreaming about. I swear I'm thinking about all different ways that I can trade and it's all here the whole time. I love it.

Andrew Mitchem: I'm so pleased because you know a year ago when I first met you just over a year ago you know you were quite frustrated like you mentioned you've spent a huge amount of money on a lot of very well-known individual courses without naming them and they just haven't worked for you yet. Then you know here we are a year later talking and that's what you do full time. I'm so pleased for you. I'm really pleased that it's worked.

Val Pasquale: Well yes. I just I can't I just can't thank you enough for who you are and what you give to the people who it so much and we just have a look at your webinar that happened last night that you know you were just so open and honest with what's going on with nothing being heard and where do you get there you just don't.

Andrew Mitchem: I'm pleased that it's working for you. Fantastic Val!

Forex Reviews: Anne-Marie Stringer from Adelaide, Australia

Forex Reviews Andrew Mitchem: The Forex Trading Coach and I've got Anne-Marie here with me today. Hello Anne-Marie.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Hi Andrew. How are you?

Andrew Mitchem: Very good, thank you. Could you just start please with just giving everybody a quick introduction about yourself where you live and what you do.

Anne-Marie Stringer: I live in Adelaide, South Australia and I work part time in a government department here and I trade part time although my aim is to at some point start trading full time.

Andrew Mitchem: Okay, thank you. And could you just give us a brief history regarding your Forex trading experience prior to taking my course.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Okay, well. I initially started trading shares and CFDs with some success and then the global financial crisis hit and there were quite a few restrictions imposed. And the market became a lot more volatile. So I started looking for ways to diversify my trading. So I started looking into foreign exchange, but I found that it was very difficult to trade foreign exchange with the share strategies that I had. They didn't quite work I kept getting stopped out due to volatility and I found it really different to share. I started looking for a couple of you know some courses that I could do to improve what I was doing. I did a couple of other ones and they weren't very successful. And so that's when I started looking for something else.

Andrew Mitchem: Okay. So when you came across my course. What was it that made you decide to apart with more money and try another course.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Well, I found your course by absolute chance on the internet and I was looking for someone who could be a bit more of a mentor or a coach rather than just paying for a course and then you know the person goes away and you never hear from them again. So I liked that idea of the trading coach and your web site. For me having some experience in trading it set out all the right sorts of things that that a trader would do. And then I think you rang me to discuss what what your system was and I found that very helpful. I could tell that from talking to you that you were a genuine trader and you were really interested in trading and helping people to trade and you understood risk and reward you weren't just all about selling a system of entry's which some people do. So I felt very confident with you.

Andrew Mitchem: Okay, Great. Thank you. And so that was around six months ago. So have you found the cause so far?

Anne-Marie Stringer: I found the course is just fantastic. The support that you provide is really good. Being able to email you and ask you questions about trades that you're taking or ones that I'm taking. The fortnightly webinars are really useful. I find that trading is a bit of a difficult thing to do because sometimes you can lose a bit of confidence if you're losing some trades and I find that the fortnightly webinars keep you very motivated and as well as being very informative going through the life trades and the other thing I think is really helpful with the course is the daily trade suggestions that you make because you can build your confidence with the system slowly by comparing the traits that I'm taking with with your suggestions and just see whether I'm actually on the right track. It's just a really good package overall.

Andrew Mitchem: Great thank you. So are you finding that the course is helping you with your trading and results wise are you helping that you're finding is creating results that you wanted.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Absolutely. I just when I had some I had about seventeen hundred dollars sitting you know in a broker's account when I when I started your course that was from a you know from previous trading I've done just been sitting there and I kept thinking I must put some more money in that account. I didn't actually put any more money in. I just one day I just thought okay now I'm going to start live trading. I started the live trading and I think I think that accounts now up to ten thousand dollars.

Andrew Mitchem: Really, that's a live account.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Yes. I never I actually kept thinking I must put some more money in but I never actually had to. Yeah. It just took off. So It's been really great because it's actually. Making money. I've done other courses where it seems to me you know it seems that you would make money but you actually never did.

Andrew Mitchem: Wow! So you were saying that you started around July. You went live in around September.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Yes.

Andrew Mitchem: And now here we are early December and you've made you've turned a 1700 dollar account into 10000 live.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Correct.

Andrew Mitchem: Excellent.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Very happy with that.

Andrew Mitchem: That's incredible. Well done. And so I suppose the obvious thing then is that leads on to your longer term trading goals if you're achieving such great success.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Yes. I'm hoping that probably sometime next year that I will actually quit my job and start trading full time and put a bit more time into doing the shorter term trades.

Andrew Mitchem: Fantastic. Well thank you very much for sharing sharing your experience so far with the course.

Anne-Marie Stringer: Thank you Andrew. I owe you a lot. Absolutely.

Forex Reviews Andrew Mitchem: Hi, this is Andrew Mitchem, the forex coach and I've got Grant Dixon with me here today. Hi there, Grant!

Grant Dixon: Hello, Andrew

Andrew Mitchem: How are you doing?

Grant Dixon: Good mate!

Andrew Mitchem: That's good, Grant. Could you just let us know, please just a little bit of yourself, where you live and what you do.

Grant Dixon: I'm a professional farmer, live in Matamata. Basically, [INAUDIBLE [0:24]] farming more career. I supposed with currency trading is my hobby.

Andrew Mitchem: Okay, good. Can you just let us know, like a brief background about your forex experience prior to taking my course.

Grant Dixon: To be honest — nothing. Basically, I took advice from my banking fraternity. My bank manager's boss was actually a forex trader and she said to me, she told me all the pitfalls about forex trading, but at the same time she said, “Yes, there are some good coaches out there. If you can get coached – go for it”, she said. That's the way to do it. [INAUDIBLE [0:19]] should have it.  You had a seminar and came I think about a week later and here we are.

Andrew Mitchem: Okay, so you didn't look at any other courses prior? Am I the first one?

Grant Dixon: It was, to be honest. Yeah, it has been just faith.

Andrew Mitchem: Oh good! How've you found the course so far? That was probably a year and a half ago?

Grant Dixon: Yeah, been nearly. I suppose I've been trading nearly two years now. So yes. Excellent to be honest. I suppose from being a newbie at the whole thing. You've gotta get through your normal trials and tribulations, but you stick to the roles that you basically set out on your course. To be honest, you can't get it too far wrong.

Andrew Mitchem: Favorite parts of the course?

Grant Dixon: Probably the favorite parts are probably the webinars, to be honest. As well the initial training of how everything works. What suit me that webinar, the fortnightly webinars just in the trench and what you should be doing or if you're going wrong had to fix it. I found them really really useful to be honest.

Andrew Mitchem: And you also like it because a lot of people say trading is quite a lonely business and it's quite nice to have the interaction.

Grant Dixon: Yeah, I definately agree on that one. Forex trading, is basically the way you talk which is based on technicals. Yeah, what you say is pretty lonely, but having other people and having more sets of eyes on the screen sometimes other people can see slightly different things that you've missed. I found it really great.

Andrew Mitchem: Fantastic! So, taking the course is really helpful with your trading. Long term goals in Forex trading?

Grant Dixon: Like I say, I always and wait into this as a hobby experience. Like my nice hobbies, they will cost you money, but the advantage I've found about this is the fact that it has the potential to earn you money. And as well as enjoy and learn. It's one of those things forex trading I don't believe you ever stop learning and it keeps you go on globally connect that as well. They all find it really good.

Andrew Mitchem: Fantastic! Thanks very much, Grant. Thanks for joining us.
