FREE FOREX TRAINING
THINK HARD BEFORE BUYING EXPENSIVE FOREX TRAINING COURSES
CONSIDER EDUCATING YOURSELF INITIALLY FOR FREE
SAVE FOR MORE SPECIFIC AND VALUABLE TRAINING IN THE
FUTURE - WAIT UNTIL YOU KNOW THE BASICS AND THEN MAKE
MORE EDUCATED CHOICES ON FUTURE TRAINING NEEDS ?
YOU MAY WELL BE PAYING ACADEMIES, SCHOOLS AND ONLINE
GURU'S FOR STUFF THAT IS AVAILABLE ONLINE AND FOR FREE !
MUCH OF THE CONTENT COULD BE SIMPLE VARIATIONS
ON BASIC TRADING PATTERNS, SYSTEMS AND STRATEGIES THAT
ARE ALREADY WIDELY USED BY THOUSANDS OF OTHER TRADERS
IN THE MARKET .....AND IS ALREADY AVAILABLE - FOR FREE !
IT IS UNLIKELY THAT UNIQUE AND ORIGINAL CONTENT WILL
BE USED BY "RESELLERS" - YOU MAY THEREFORE BE PAYING
THOUSANDS OF POUNDS FOR GENERIC FREE INFO THATS BEEN
REPACKAGED INTO TRAINING VIDEOS AND COURSES AND
THEN SOLD BY COMMISSION BASED SALES TEAMS USING
FACE TO FACE SALES PRESENTATIONS AND WEBINARS IN
UPMARKET VENUES,HOTELS AND RENTED OFFICES.....
I PROMISE YOU THAT IF YOU SPEND A FEW MONTHS EDUCATING
YOURSELF IN THE AREAS BELOW (AND SIMILAR FREE SITES)
PLUS - DO SOME FREE DEMO TRADING, TALK TO OTHER
TRADERS IN THE FREE ONLINE FORUMS (THEY WONT BITE) ABOUT
THINGS YOU NEED MORE HELP AND ADVICE ON.....
YOU WILL BECOME A MORE CONFIDENT AND STREETWISE
ROOKIE - BETTER EQUIPPED TO DECIDE THE DIRECTION YOU WANT TO
GO IN YOUR TRADING AND BETTER EDUCATED TO REALISE THE TRUE
VALUE OF ANY OF THOSE COURSES YOU SAW ADVERTISED BEFORE .....
C'MON - WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE ? ......YOU ARE SAVING
SOME SERIOUS MONEY BY TRYING THIS !
I've been trading Forex for 20 years - so here are (in my opinion) some of the BEST FREE training sites out there for trading and in particular FOREX TRAINING.
Note - I am not commercially affiliated to any of the Traders below.
IIf site owner or members ask for money or fees then politely refuse the offers and just take the free stuff ......i'm always learning from new trading websites and courses everyday without paying for the offered main courses ...so sure perhaps you will have to register your email address to get some free training or PDFs......BUT DON'T PAY FOR ANYTHING UNLESS YOU WANT TO !
SO LETS GET STARTED ......
1) Absolute Beginners
Babypips.com is FANTASTIC for the basics of learning Forex trading......THEIR FREE PIPSOLOGY ACADEMY IS HERE - go through it from start to finish and take your time
its worth it
Forex Factory....... massive Forex Forum that has been around for years and years .....big site and a lot of "sharks" on it , but equally some awesome traders and programmers (some of whom I have collaborated with at times on Strengthmeter based trading systems and software) - good FX calendar as well !...join it and search for decent articles you are interested in ....and there's loads of free software and indicators as well ......im NVP by the way on there
I would suggest you start with "Rookie Talk" Forum area and look for what interests you
TRADE2WIN....... massive Trading Forum that has been around for years and years .....and where i started posting and sharing my own ideas many years ago ! ....go to the FIRST STEPS area and see where your interest leads you .....its not just Forex here......come and say hello if you want I am NVP on there .....I am mainly in the Forex area and post most days on the forex market action ...for free ...
I also took a look at all the Free video training packages out there on Udemy .....now remember the idea of these is for the TUTORS to SELL you their courses ......so dont sign up for them - just take the basic FREE training and move on !
it takes a few minutes to join and off you go ......go to the Filters area and i would concentrate on any course that is Free and also gets the highest ratings .....here's a few ........if you are learning stuff you already know just move on to next chapter or find an area you dont know ......thats how we all learn .....!!!
Learn Forex Trading - Become A Professional Forex Trader
Free Forex Tutorial
Free Forex Trading for beginners
Introductory Forex Trading Course
Enough ?...you get the idea ?.....so much Free training ...and relatively good stuff as well
I'm concluding this area with and old video from me .......sure its a little dated but it still captures in my opinion how to get involved in trading - N
NVP's Beginners Guide to Trading.....
2) Intermediate Learning
Chat with Traders ....... Excellent Free library of podcasts in the theme of the Market Wizard books. Listen to as many as you can and learn from many many masters. Don't just limit yourself to your own specialist area - I have learned lots from traders talking about other markets that helped me in my Forex Trading ......spread your net and learn from the best !
No Nonsense Forex ........ Patricks (VP) disruptive and charismatic approach to challenging many of the old school pillar stones in forex trading is refreshing and informative - some great Free videos and blogs ....there's a free Website below with loads of Free videos and podcasts, and i have also included exclusive links to his Free Discord NNFX server where thousands of traders interact using his style ........and 1 other Discord Server where some of us went outside of his Daily Timeframe Trading restrictions to try to develop faster strategies.....
3) Some Traders I rate .......
Timon Weller .......I've been following Timon for a while now since he first started marketing his ideas and systems....he has some solid and robust approaches to trading and i like his relaxed style ...his FREE weekly updates on the higher timeframes give some interesting calls so worth a look....remember he will ask you to buy stuff....so just ignore that and read what he does and those observations he makes on the markets
I've only been corresponding with Yvan for a couple of years but this guy really has his mindset straight regarding trading and life ......
you can pay a lot of money for getting your emotional side of trading right (and i have at times).....this guy is one of the best around and offers a lot of free advice for the trading mindset and emotional pressures that come with it....He has products but again just read his Blogs if you want it for free....
Lance Beggs .....
The GOTO guy for price action trading , a great Trader and 100% nice guy - cheers Lance for all your help and advice over the years.
ProsperianFX .......a relatively new website and training school. I'm a big fan of Petar and his team - we have corresponded for a few years now on Forex matters. His expertise is in Market profile, something i find fascinating and useful (although my own Strengthmeter strategies are still where I specialise). The great thing about trading is that there are many ways to make money as long as you are an expert in your field of trading , and Petar certainly is. If you talk to him say that Neil (NVP) says hello !.....
4) YOUTUBE ........ there's a lot of absolute rubbish on Youtube to do with trading but equally some very good free channels that provide plenty of good information.... heres a few of the better ones - again just use them as starting points for free !
uk-spread betting :-
I particularly like the videos by Mark but try them and see what you like
not bad at all....
The Transparent Trader :-
Jarrod is pretty switched on ......
1 off videos ...interesting :-
5) MY MENTORS ........ I would love to recommend many of my mentors i have worked with over the years (across many markets and systems), but they all remain private people and happy to remain that way......if i can ever persuade any of them to come a little into the public domain i will place them here or recommend them to you 1 to 1 .......if you read my biggest thread at Trade2win (with 2.5 million views) you will see a handful of them making brief appearances over the years .......but never really being broadcast by me as mentors on that forum........i'm happy to respond to anyone by PM if you can guess who they are ....I still might be able to introduce you !
