  1. 5

    Wow, wow, wow!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m speechless on the value delivered so far! And a little nervous! When the student is ready THE TEACHER SHALL APPEAR! Everything I have been looking for. Thx bro!!!!!!!!

  2. 5

    Very solid course. No frilly rubbish or beating around the bush. Lays out his strategy, a simple but seemingly robust one, and shows loads of practical examples of it. Good job.

  3. 5

    Amazing course. One must take the course to be a pro trader.

  4. 4

    I like this course, easy to understand and follow the methods described. It still comes down to the individual and how the individual executed their trades.

  5. 4

    EXCELLENT! It needs more specific points thought in my opinion.

  6. 4

    I’ve been trading with the same global macro-fundamental approach to the forex market for about two years now and have come to more or less the same approach. Even if you’re an experienced trader, this course is still invaluable for its huge number of live trading examples.

  7. 5

    The system in whole is straight forward and simple to follow. The instructor kept the videos short and was easy to follow which help keep interested. I learned a lot…Thank You

  8. 3

    Although I have been involved trading the fundamentals before, there is a lot of quirky information that I had not known about. The more knowledge the better and this course definitely helps with that.

  9. 5

    Before this course I tried to be an exclusively technical trader. It wasn’t working out for me. This course gave me an alternative approach to trading. I now have much better focus and find it easier to prepare for my trading day. This course is worth taking This course is not offering a replacement for technical analysis but rather fills in a missing piece of what should be part of any trader’s toolkit.because, among other things, there are over 500 videos of live trades where you can see why the instructor took the trades that he did.I unequivocally recommend taking this course.

  10. 3

    Excellent course, It has turned my trading completely from directionless to sharp and focused. I am glad that I did this course . I am just three days into the course and I can already see the difference 🙂

  11. 5

    Once I started Watching I could not stop watching the next video and hardly put my phone down, the idea of trading the news has completely changed my trading Im yet to put all the learning to practice, but by taking this course alone it has opened my eyes to fundementals, and im very confident that it will pay off once I start using the knowledge ive gained so far.

  12. 4

    The Live Trades that are incorporated in this course are excellent features. The detailed explanation that comes with these each and every trade are priceless! Tom is explaining and showing you why, when and how he is trading those trades. Simply beautiful and extraordinary.

  13. 5

    Trading on the news! Such great insight that takes much of the guesswork and worries out. The release of Forex news gives the exact time and date to set buy or sell trades.

  14. 4

    I have traded with technical indicators for about 5 years on and off until the past year, having come under retirement pressure with no income and a slowed economy in RSA. I made some bad losses so reverted to demo trading for safety and practice. Having been taught in several courses to stay away from the large swings that only the banks and institutions can operate in. Somehow I always queried the logic and fairness of the market, until I found this course and watched the various video interviews two of which are fellow South Africans. I also do not trust any of the local brokers to deal with as I see them as Market Makers.

  15. 4

    Great work. An eye opener on trading the news even for experienced traders. I am greatly impacted. Keep up the good work.

  16. 4

    A very well thought out course. Tom explains everything in a very easy to understandable way, providing many examples to back up the course material. Money well spent in my opinion. A great course! Thanks Tom!

  17. 4

    I simply love this course, Tom is awesome. I found the videos very informative with clear directions what to focus on while trading Forex. I am coming from no knowledge background to Forex trading. With Tom’s advice via this course and his dedicated mentoring service, i am proud to call myself a pro trader just less than a month of little hard work, i said “hard work” since i am coming from no knowledge background. Now i am already having some insight in understanding the terminologies, i am pretty sure it will be just bagging pips while closing reading Tom’s daily digest emails and follow his recommendations. I am very happy i have enrolled in this course and now i also have Tom as my personnel analyst via his mentoring service. I will highly recommend this course for anyone who is starting Forex trading. Also others to get a better picture on how to trade the news events in Forex.
