Whether you want to work with the classical Technical Analysis or with specific Trading Strategies, this course will give you more safety and efficacy, for everything you'll do in your life in forex. It is the basic training for anyone who wants to be a profitable trader.

In this Course will be used a Professional VoiceOver: Chris Hampton.

  • Those willing to work on financial markets using technical analysis patterns
  • Those using trend-following strategies
  • It is not suitable for those who are looking for an operational strategy, as I will teach basic concepts and not strategies

Why choose my courses Udemy?

1) I teach only subjects dealt with personally, I do not teach theory, I teach you practice. Information you can start using today.

2) I only teach what I succeeded in. More and more people now earn money with their courses, videos or books, but not everything they say comes always from their personal successes. It is often much theory, they have just read or studied.

Learn from those who have actually had good results and practice daily what they tell you gives you a greater probability of success.

3) I have 11 automatic income generation businesses each month, and I am now developing the 12th with the Udemy. If you can repeat 11 times a positive result means that probably it is not a coincidence, but that the principles you have learned are valid.

Please check my personal website for more information about my businesses.

All what is shared by me in my classes comes from direct experience, from my success and my staff.

About me

Danilo is a guy who now lives off his income in the Canary Islands. He works around 5 hours a week and has 11 automatic generated monthly businesses that earns him an income of 300-8000€ each.

It wasn't always that way, until five years ago he worked 12 hours a day at something where he only got a little more than a salary.

In these five years he has learned and applied the principles that have revolutionized his life. From time management to understanding how the money worked until personal growth classes with people as Jim Rohn and the perception of the principles of happiness thanks to having met the Dalai Lama.

Recent success


from 4 years ago I live off trading forex and commodities (since 3 years it is enough to live with only this income), I collaborate with  major investment funds and I get an average of two new requests for collaboration per month from brokers and banks.

I do more than 4,000€ per month just in network marketing, working 3 hours a month.

Several automatic e-commerce for services and products (web pages Prestashop/Wordpress, Google SEO, Adwords and Social Marketing)

EBay PowerSeller in less than 60 days

investments in properties from banks

Investments in third-party businesses online


He has learned to jump on horseback one meter in two months (riding a year ago, but had never jumped on horseback before)

He learned to dance latinoamericano in two months -- enough to dance decently with professionals

He has beaten a former Italian champion chess

He has learned Krav Maga, surfing and windsurfing in a month


Learned how to to easily have a conversation in Spanish following just two weeks of classes

Developed passions like reading, meditation and yoga

Having met the Dalai Lama

Having studied and deepened theories of Einstein and astronomy

Having changed country and lifestyle

Having helped dozens of people to change their economic situation and life's perception (I do not speak of enrolled courses or websites, I mean real people I know personally and I have followed in real life and accompanied in recent years, you will find some of their stories on my personal website)

My philosophy

Although my main source of income comes from trading, personally I do not consider myself a trader, but a person with the passion of all those businesses that require little time to manage and that can be automated or outsourced.

My goal has always been to earn enough money to live without worries, prioritizing free time and my passions.

Money comes and goes, time passes and never returns. It is the most valuable asset we have and is the only non-regenerable.

The value of money is relative, 30€ for a night at the disco has a low value, while 10€ spent on a Kiyosaki book is invaluable.

Even the weather has a relative in value, a routine day over 10 years does not give you 10 years of life, but the same day repeated for 10 years. One day lived for 365 days of passion and different experiences year is a year worth more than 10 years of superficiality and routine.

For this reason, I have always been attracted to all those businesses that, once started, can continue "alone" without my presence and generate money, but above all, free time.

I prefer to work 10 hours per month making 2000€ than 10 hours a day making 20,000€  a month.
