Should I invest in this company to learn forex trading?
Recently one of my friends that is equally into trading gave me a link for this company he has been practing with. Before I heard about this company I just liked picking his brain and having a back and fourth with him about what to do next etc etc. But I'm getting some bad vibes, ok so the company was just formed right? So I understand if they are a little new and don't have everything figured out. But certain things are seriously freaking me out.
YOU HAVE TO have a referral from someone you know, this is weird because they give you money the more people you refer, so if this is how they are making their money 1 sounds like an MLM, when will they stop focusing on trading and instead just focus on what their business is about? (This could be legit but I am very careful when it comes to MLM)
When speaking to the presenter, they never asked if anyone wanted to ask questions with a Q and A and just left a few of my questions unaswnered even though her presentation was all about how they answer questions and their course is awesome because its interactive…. so… that's a little sus.
They are offering trips to Mexico and things like this, which I actually like but I am also a little werieded out by, I feel like they might be using this as a crazy tactic.
So its only 20$ which isn't that much, however they don't accept things like PayPal or Venmo so they would have my actual information if I sign up for them, now is 20$ worth giving them this? What can they actually do with it… also is 20$ worth the knowledge they are going to give me? hmmm…..
What do you guys think about this? Have any of you actually been successful in not getting formal training?
I’ve been learning forex for about 2 months, at the moment I’m practising trading pullbacks with Fibonacci and candle stick patterns, this set up shows a pullback to the 50% retracement level with lines up with previous resistance now acting as support.
Need advice if I should continue investing in a forex group
Good day! Would like to seek advice. I have invested in a certain group of forex traders which gives you a certain percentage of your investment every month. In the end of contract you should have received all the promised returns + the original capital, more or less doubling your money. My experience so far has been positive and didn't experienced any delays and fully received all agreed returns + initial investment. I would love to invest again because it is passive income. My only concern is it has been flagged by the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) as illegal and any person involved might be at risked to be investigated by BIR or worse, imprisonment. The forex group's explanation is that 1) their name was used by a third party and they were wrongfully accused and 2) PH does not recognize forex trading yet and they are legit in the other country they are operating in. I trust a lot of people involved with them that is why I was not hesitant in investing the first time. Just want to hear some thoughts from a separate entity. Especially how the PH government recognizes forex trading in general. And help me clear my doubts in investing again. Thank you!
I live in Canada, I’m using MetaTrader connected with a CMC brokerage. I’m a little confused on how the trading hours works as I’ve been able to trade after 4pm some days but today for example (Friday) I am not able to execute a trade as it keeps telling me “Market Is Closed”. I’ve been searching through the internet to find the hours it opens and closes but to no avail. If someone can provide me with an easy understanding for when I’m able to trade for example: XAU/USE (gold) It would be very helpful and appreciated! Thank You!
I've seen mentions of Nick Shawn & Momo Forex here; Here's why i don't like them...
I want everyone who searches these people to see this on forex cuz this is the truth they need to see! Hopefully it will save alot of traders throwing money at these fools! Look listen i got both of their courses for free from a website i found a download. Nick & Momo charge 1k per course for terrible content & i lost a little respect for nick & momo as momo convinced nick to make a signals group which nick pledged never to do! That Group makes 70k a month from it; it's called LevelsFX also these guys both have full courses 1 each that sell for over 1k and nick and momo's excuse for doing LevelsFX was ppl were re-selling their courses and they had to get a legal team and pay 4-5 figures a month to take down few small time course re-sellers on Instagram Look listen i got both of their courses for free from a website i found a download they charge 1k per course for terrible content & i lost a little respect for nick & momo as momo convinced nick to make a signals group which nick pledged never to do!

Advantage of his audience like any Guru. The real reason they started this service is because the courses weren't paying and that's how they make their money and live trading profits etc. Can easily be faked look here:which is obvious BS + Nick would keep on changing the number he said he needed to pay every month etc obvious liar and taking. Advantage of his audience like any Guru. Search: Gurus MT4 Exposed on Google or Youtube for more info Don't buy a Guru's course if you can download it for free not seen one yet that's worth it! ~ Never have bought a course! Site i used was Coursed co and searched LucidFX (Still available for download) & MissionFX I don't like Gurus i hate them & I have to say Nickshawnfx has let me down in the past and I'm seeing many mentions of them on forex . As you know no-one without a third party verified track record (real server data from a well regulated broker) can be trusted. So pretty much no-one in the FX industry can be trusted. Edit: Mistakes fixed etc
Would anyone recommend a reliable forex training course or method? I just got very disappointed by a fake workshop I attended.
I’m a beginner. I’ve been watching Trading 212’s Youtube videos, which are very nice and I’ve also been following some courses on Skillshare (of various quality levels). Sharing an important tip: careful when joining the free “workshop” by Greg Secker (Learning to Trade / Trader Lifestyle), massively advertised right now on social media. It’s actually a pre-recorded video, it doesn’t cover most topics presented on their ads and it shows you their 8-step training package that costs £10,000! And the chat is scripted and fake, there’s no genuine reaction there. I tested it by leaving the session and coming back in and only my chat comments disappeared, all the made-up other ones remained exactly the same. No insults and no lies here. Just sharing this “red flag” with you, as I myself would have liked to be warned before I lost 1h watching it.
I’m 19, a college student and interested in starting Forex trading.
I recently got interested in making my money grow more especially during this pandemic. I have always wanted to start forex trading ever since I started investing (mutual funds) at 15 years old but I knew the risks were too high for me at that age. Could you guys recommend me free tutorials maybe on youtube (if they’re recommendable) or some free resources found online? And maybe tips and tricks of your own? Also if possible, I’d like to know some sites where I can trade for a minimal starting price since I’m only a student. Thank you very much and happy trading! :)
Anyone doing little forex trading? I’m curious how much of the not allowed is allowed.
I see in terms it’s not allowed. But curious if I can bounce few K back and forth over the week or month without setting off any alarms. Anyone doing it? How much/often? I see Revoult gives a near perfect rate match while most forex brokers have 0.4 spread on the RUB which is nearly my entire profit interest on a weekly move.

I think that my friend is in a forex trading pyramid scheme "Walking ATMS"
My friend asked me if I wanted to join a group of people meeting and recruiting people for what seems like a pyramid scheme. They have videos on youtube (https://youtu.be/x5w02T_3JiI) he doesn't seem to have paid in yet but I'm worried that more people will be affected by this anyone else seen anything similar?
