The Road Map to the Advanced Forex Course for Smart Traders
Lesson #1
1 Lecture 07:40

This lecture emphasizes the importance of your beliefs about the market as you start to formulate your trading plan.

Every action you take is first filtered through your beliefs. If you do not truly believe you can win, you may find trading quite draining and perplexing.

Here’s how to drive your trading planning and performance through the power of self-belief. It’s absolutely essential.

Lesson #1: How Beliefs Shape Your Trading
Lesson #2
1 Lecture 16:15

There’s a lot more than numbers and statistics involved in trading at a top level. The market wizards distinguished themselves as truly self-aware and highly emotionally intelligent.

Lesson #2: How to Model the Beliefs of Top Traders

Lesson #4
1 Lecture 07:01

This is our first peek into the market’s many facets and machinations. How the financial system works, why opportunity is everywhere, and how to react when you’re inevitably wrong sometimes.

With a compelling model of the market, you can start to formulate ideas for what will happen when and why. As you get more advanced, you’ll also start to realize the importance of ‘who’ and ‘how’.

This lesson is about how to construct your model from scratch, and then use it analyze the markets

Lesson #4: How to Craft a Compelling Model of the Market
Lesson #5
1 Lecture 13:12

A casino tends to win at its own games over time, because it has a built-in edge. This lesson is about how to recognize, develop and apply your very own edge to forex trading.

By developing an edge and properly defining your initial risk, it becomes easy to see the value in stalking great entries. From here on we will redefine the way we express profits, preferring to use a statistical measure based on the initial risk.

Lesson #5: How to Get an Edge and Trade Like the House at a Casino
Lesson #6
1 Lecture 11:23

Objectives are the first and most crucial step in system development. We’ve talked about how to create a model, and now we want to create a system to put that model into effect.

How much do you want to make? How much can you stand to lose? How will you recover if you lose too much? These are important considerations that will drive the basis for your system.

Lesson #6: How to Set Forex Trading Objectives that Let You Win Big
Lesson #7
1 Lecture 11:26

Your model and system let you identify and trade opportunities. Your position sizing is what determines how much you stand to make, and how much you may lose.

Sizing your positions strategically is most valuable when done in line with clear objectives. If you identify a high-probability trade, it’s only natural that you configure the risks and rewards to benefit you most. Here’s how.

Lesson #7: You Achieve Your Goals Through Your Position Sizing Not Your Entry
Lesson #8
1 Lecture 10:37

It is much easier to build a winning system for one or two market types, rather than waste time and energy looking for the holy grail system that works in all market types.

In this lesson you will learn an easy-to-use visual approach to market type identification.

Macro Forex Trader

Sam has been trading since 2007. Sam is an ex-army officer and he holds a masters in Leadership. In 2008 Sam joined one of the top 10 Global Forex brokerages, where he worked in both Australia and Singapore. Since then he started a share investing business, SpoonFed Investor and Forex trading business FX Renew.


Heavily influenced by the Market Wizards, the following are five of Sam’s core beliefs on trading:

  • Entries give you an edge but position-sizing is how you achieve your trading objectives
  • It’s how you trade the market after you enter that matters
  • Work on your belief structure first. It will change everything
  • Mistakes kill trading systems, so learn to be in the zone and be mistake free
  • Trading is 100% psychology, as everything from placing a trade to developing systems is about the quality of your decisions.

Sam’s trading style is rules based discretionary. He looks to define the market type and direction using fundamentals and technicals, and then uses price action to stalk an low risk/high reward entry across time frames.
