The real deal!

With fantastic customer service and a chance to trade live with professional trader/analyst john fortune. This company stands above the rest for me! With lots of company’s selling a “system” you get a chance to learn/trade the way a professional does, which is a great opportunity.

We update our Daily currency strengths before each Live session and these are available to view through the “Portex Connect” feature on our upgraded MT4 Elite trading platform.

Each currency is given a strength rating which makes this feature an ideal tool for both scalpers and swing traders alike, helping to identify the overall direction that a currency is trending in.

Our trade selection process is hugely important to consistent success and we take great care with this part of our analysis.

A detailed rating system is applied to individual currencies taking into account rigid Technical Analysis on all time frames between, and including, the 1h and Monthly charts.

Covering over 30 different currency pairs,our chart templates are available to download and install on the MT4 Elite platform.

These templates identify major areas of both Support & Resistance, and Supply & Demand, and installing these templates allow you to work from the same charts that we use in the live training.

Support & Resistance levels are determined across multiple time frames with the most important levels coming from the Daily, Weekly and Monthly charts.

Supply & Demand zones are similar to Support & Resistance levels however are determined by both volume and volatility around these areas.

Part Time Traders:

Our 30m sessions twice a day (recorded and watchable on demand) are ideal for those looking to generate an extra income from trading but who may not have a huge amount of time to dedicate to education. Our Live Analysis of set ups is perfect for traders looking to learn in real time.

Swing Traders:

The set ups analysed in the room are based on tried and tested Swing Trading methodologies looking to capture swings in price from low to high or vice-versa. This requires a top down analysis and generally provides anywhere between 5 and 15 potential opportunities in a given week including techniques for correctly adding to positions on smaller time frames.

Scalpers and Short Term Traders:

The top down analysis in the rooms is perfect for those looking to be highly active in the markets as key features of the Live Rooms include Daily Currency Strength ratings to assess which pairs are likely to have the most explosive moves that day. The top down analysis also allows short term traders to implement their strategies safe in the knowledge they are trading in the overall direction of the trend and therefore greatly increasing their win ratio and also potential profit.

Position Traders:

Whilst position trades are few and far between by their nature, these opportunities are analysed and discussed with the fundamental aspects driving them. Assessing opportunities for longer term position trades is part of the Live Rooms but is viewed as an additional factor alongside shorter term opportunities.
