Beginners Course Testimonials

“I am extremely grateful for the time, effort, expertise & patience Russell provided throughout my Platinum course. Inspired by a TV programme & wanting to utilise my time during lockdown effectively, I chose Forex as another opportunity to add ‘strings to my bow’, with a view to trading alongside my full-time job and longer term benefit myself & family. I am glad to have found Platinum, from the initial consultation with Steven, right through to the sessions with Russell, I have found every minute extremely valuable & profound. Russell is a great judge of character and adapts accordingly so that the information and course content is delivered in a way suited to the individual, he is also the fountain of all knowledge when it comes to Forex!. This has given me the confidence to trade successfully. Once again, many thanks Russell & PTA.”


"I was learning forex off YouTube which was a very slow process as you can imagine. I then came across Platinum which changed my learning process, every lesson was very professional and went into depth with all the content they had provided me with. Russell was very knowledgable, always answered my emails if I needed help, very easy to talk to and learn from - he made the experience enjoyable. I am 20 years old and I believe that this course will allow me to be great at forex in the near future. Would highly recommend!"


"I would like to thank Steven for his continued supervision and providing me with knowledge about the market that I never would have known had I not spoken to him. Without him, I never would have felt truly confident in trading the market. The phone conversations with him have proved to be extremely valuable to myself, and I am most grateful. He has shown me that to be a successful forex trader, you need a professional approach to trading, accompanied by knowledge, and Steven has provided me with invaluable knowledge. Thanks again for everything"


"I have to say I had my reservations before coming on board, but they have all been answered which I am happy to report back on. The Platinum Online Trading Academy has been very professional, the trading strategies are relatively simple to implement and am currently trading around a full time job. "


"If you are looking to learn how to trade forex like a professional, these are the guys to go with. Some really in-depth teaching as well and analysis on the forex market. Really enjoying my time here so far!"


"Wish I had found Platinum trading academy from the very start!, I wasted money previously on a couple of days training where you’re stuck in a classroom full of people for 2 days getting fed information like a robot. I’ve had personalised training from the Platinum Forex mentors and must commend the professionalism of the whole team. Have introduced a few people from the previous course where I met them to Platinum too."


"I have been searching for a company to learn how to trade forex with and came across Platinum trading academy. They provided me with a free demonstration and chat with the mentor, I came on board after that and am trading well for the last 9 months. I have a part time income which is helping to pay my mortgage off which really helps."


"Its been a brilliant experience with platinum so far. I have been a member for 7 months now and am still receiving the daily analysis from them. The online trading academy has taken care of me all the way and I really appreciate the support they have given. It’s a very thorough trading course and many thanks to my forex mentor for his patience with me."


"I am delighted to say Platinum really made me feel like an individual and not just a number to them, they ensure each client is supported on their trading course. All the forex mentors are 100% professional and supported me through the mentoring stage. I would recommend their online trading academy to anyone!"


"I found that the package Platinum offer on a whole was very comprehensive. It includes analysis provided everyday as well as an immersive training program with a personal forex mentor. I am trading quite consistently for the past 5 months and making steady returns with low risk, if you are able to have a chance to join their program then take it!"


"I’ll keep this short and sweet as I know reading a long review is tedious. Platinum’s forex mentors are true professionals and provided support no one else in the industry was able to offer. Would highly recommend to anyone to do this trading course to learn forex!"


"If you were like me and sceptical about what the Platinum Trading Academy does, then I would urge you to do the free consultation they offer. Once I saw that they show you what they provide and spend personal time with you, I came on board. I haven’t looked back since, I’m now trading the correct way with a professional methodology. A huge thanks to my personal mentor!"


"Platinum’s program offered me a good way into trading as I was a beginner to it all. The forex mentors helped me learn to trade at my own pace and all the sessions are one on one, I found their trading course to have a good variety of strategies I can now use around my full-time job. In my first 3 months so far, I averaged around 5% returns using a very low risk which I am very happy with."


"Platinum gave me a step by step guide to grow my trading knowledge and start making serious cash. It was the one to one support that really made the difference, to have the mentor there whenever i needed them."


"The Platinum methodology was just easy to understand and utilise, i have been on training courses in the past and never received this level of support or teaching. I am now completely converted on the one to one training. It has really changed trading for me and made it enjoyable. Thank you Platinum Trading Academy and the team."


"I was always a sceptic of training courses, but after i had the complimentary trading session PTA provide it seemed legitimate. I was rewarded putting my faith in them, not only am i learning the correct techniques but this is now translating into trading profits. Any sceptics out there, give the complimentary trading session a go and you'll never look back."


"I have received excellent support and training, they have really set the bar in forex education."


"I am thankful for Platinum Trading Academy and their team, i have received everything i could have asked for. It has truly been a pleasurable experience and have already recommended friends to join."


"Educating yourself in the market is a must if you want to make money consistently and Platinum Trading Academy is the right way to start."


Masters Course Testimonials

"Joining the Platinum Trading Academy was an important step into the world of trading and I am happy I took that step. My mentor/trainer, Russell Gordon, taught me the rules and principles of trading and his way of teaching made me more passionate about this journey than I was at the start.

I like his no-nonsense style and the way he makes this complicated material easy to understand.

Thanks a million, Russell!"


"I have been trading now for 13 weeks (should probably have not traded during the December Christmas/New Year time..) lesson learned there. So after 1/3 of a year of trading my account is up 89%.. averaging 17% per month. I agree on 2 of your major points to me.. 1. Patience is critical and having confidence in my setup and execution. 2. Use the Forex factory to my advantage. Knowing when to be and more importantly when to be out. Again thanks for your insights and assistance."


"The Platinum Training sessions were TOP notch. The instructor was a professional forex trader who taught “how to become an effective, patient and profitable trader”. The honest feedback/approach during these sessions was best expressed by “what were you thinking when you made that trade”. I waited one month after finishing my classes before writing this to ensure I actually learn and could execute what Russell taught me. The proof is my account is up 15% in two months. Thanks to everyone at the Platinum Trading Academy."


"I’ve been learning how to trade forex with Platinum now for 3 months, my mentoring is still going and having weekly check ins with my forex mentor. The weekly appointments are really helpful and done online so I can do them from the office or home. Used both the swing trading and day trading strategies whilst working full time."


"The trading analysis has been superb along with the professional forex mentors has been a smooth experience so far. I’m now earning a part time income and enjoying each day doing my own analysis and making trades."


"The forex training and forex analysis Platinum have provided to me so far has been very good, I have been on aboard now for 4 months and have already introduced 2 friends which have joined too."


"I feel everyone should be trading with Platinum, I feel lucky to have found them. It seems everyone gets sucked into these companies selling them a dream. Platinum was straight to the point and told me my realistic expectations. I appreciated the honesty compared to the rest, I have not been disappointed. I got what they said I would get which is great one on one forex mentoring and professional forex analysis, it's been a breath of fresh air."


"Like a lot of people, I went on previous 2 day forex courses with other companies, I got nothing from them. I only realised after that this is not something you can learn by cramming it all in, Platinum Trading Academy taught me each week for a sustained period of time until the information sunk in, and now I wish I had found them at the earlier."


"When I first joined the Platinum Trading Academy's Forex trading course I knew I made the right choice as I have had very professional training from the start. I had struggled for many years trading the forex market but now I have the ability to trade profitably with their online forex trading academy."


"I found my experience at the Platinum Trading Academy to be excellent, it has allowed me to produce a secondary income as well as the independence to trade myself without the need for others. Their trading strategies are consistent and have been working well for the past 7 months."


"I have been with Platinum’s online trading academy for around 4 months now, I have since completed my 1 to 1 training with my forex mentor. I am writing this review to commend the professionalism of the mentors and the company. From the very start I dealt with true professional and am very grateful that I now have the knowledge to go out and make profits from the trading strategies consistently."


"Thanks for my forex mentor, he was very patient with me. I know I am a slow learner and he let me learn at the pace that was required for me. The trading course was excellent with very ongoing analysis being provided with no extra cost! Its win-win in terms of joining, would highly recommend joining this online trading academy."


"Platinum’s online trading academy was a very professional outfit, far more professional then anyone I had spoken to from other educational providers. They don’t sell you a fantasy like the rest, I got honest training from honest forex mentors with real results. I am currently returning approx. 5-8% monthly and absolutely thrilled."


"I had been trading for about 2 years with mixed results before I joined the Platinum Trading Academy. I made all the rookie mistakes of following indicators, trading on short time frames etc. The Platinum online trading academy showed me the error of my ways and put me on the correct track to success, if you want to learn how to trade like a professional there’s no need to learn anywhere else. Just want to say thank you to my forex mentor, he was very patient with me and helped me learn at a pace that was suitable for me."


"The forex trading strategies used at the Platinum Trading Academy are easy to implement and this was the real key for me. I had used so many indicators in the past and found nothing worked consistently, the day Platinum told me to stop using them and focus on their price action techniques I truly saw why the markets moved the way they did. Don’t be fooled into learning about indicators guys, Platinum is the real deal. I was sceptical at first but after the way of teaching and results it was apparent they know what they are talking about."


"I took the option of the forex master’s program with Platinum, the fee isn’t small but it was well worth it. The personal mentors helped me learn from scratch, it’s a great beginner trading course as well as an advanced one. Learn how to trade like the institutions is Platinum’s motto and they certainly do what they say!"


"Forex trading is tough, I know it from trying to do it for so many years. I had been following the Platinum Trading Academy for a couple of years and finally took the plunge into their program this year. I have to say the mentoring and teaching is ideal for me, I work full time so needed it to work around my job. The forex mentors personalised their teaching to me which now allows me to do analysis and trade around my job to bring me in healthy returns. The last 6 months have returned 40% on my capital, I’m astounded as I was breaking even and making losses for so long before this."


"I found Platinum’s Online trading academy is a great experience, I’ve been on 1 and 2 day courses in the past. Platinum is nothing like that, they have a weekly set up with you and a forex mentor to go through new analysis topics and feedback on trades. It was a well-structured plan and I feel like I can approach the markets with a better understanding."


"My mentor has been fantastic and has given me so much confidence with my trading. After being very skeptical in investing with Platinum, I was made to feel welcome. Having finished 10 one to one sessions, I have doubled my demo account and now ready to start going live. The Platinum Trading Academy has given me the confidence to do this. Recommended to various friends."


"My biggest achievement in trading is joining Platinum as i had tried everything before, i had used every indicator out there and experimented with timeframes but nothing worked. Once i joined Platinum trading was made clear and easy to understand. The best decision i have made in my trading career. Would recommend anyone looking to trade correctly to come and join Platinum Trading Academy."


"Platinum Trading Academy is an excellent education service with professional mentors and traders who genuinely care whether we succeed. They have supported me throughout my training and have even given me support after i had completed my training. The one to one support is really what sold me and is the true key to learning successfully."


"I had to previously stop trading due to my losses, but i felt i wanted to start and thought where better then with a professional trading education. They have truly opened my eyes to trading professionally and provided me with all the abilities to do so."


"Am I grateful that I googled 'learning Forex', I would say so! After extensive market research, I decided to proceed with the Platinum Trading Academy. This was not without some doubt as the internet is awash with a mass of derision pointed towards Forex providers in general. However, this is certainly not my experience with this academy and in particular my tutor and mentor Russell Gordon. The way Russell approaches training is what I would describe as a 'no nonsense' approach. Russell teaches you what you actually need to know with both technical and fundamental aspects covered so that you as a trader can make a rational decision to place a trade and more importantly when to stay out of the market. Russell has displayed an enormous amount of patience with me on my journey for which I am extremely grateful. I can honestly say that both Platinum and Russell care about you as a client and safeguarding your account which is a rare quality that is worthy of mention.My journey continues as a full-time trader having made the leap from a successful consultancy career to trading. My initial three months has enabled me to cut my teeth and end the year with good profit, which in turn lays the foundation to execute my business plan in 2021 and beyond. Finally I just wish to thank Russell in particular for enabling and equipping me as a successful trader and also to Platinum for excellent training and ongoing assistance through the trading floor and algorithm"


"I first signed up for a Forex course many years ago with a well known company (who changed name!); the biggest waste of money ever spent! All they did was try to up-sell to you and ultimately equip you to lose money. I only wish I'd found Platinum instead of them all those years ago. That said from Day One with Platinum I have felt they actually care about what they're teaching and about your success. I was fortunate enough to have Russell Gordon as my mentor and I cannot thank him enough for what he has given me; that is, the tools and knowledge, that if I put into practice will help create an opportunity to initially have a second income and put me into a strong position in the future to ultimately replace my primary income and more importantly work on my own terms not someone else's. Russell has been fantastic with me; when I've needed a kick he hasn't been afraid to apply it. I feel he really cares about my success and I know he has done everything he can to help me. At the end of the day a mentor can only do so much, it is YOU that has to put the work in and apply the methodology and reap the rewards. Another thing is you are not made to feel you have your block of lessons and are left out there to sink or swim. There is plenty of support available. Something I think is of extreme importance and something other companies just do not do. This is NOT get rich quick. This is real, solid quality teaching that if learnt properly and applied CAN change your future. I couldn't be happier choosing to take this course and count myself lucky to have been paired with Russell."


"I have never had a positive trading month ever since I started venturing into the world of forex. Sure, I had winning trades but overall, on a monthly perspective, all my trades add up to the negative spectrum. But all of that changed. Although my very first lesson on Platinum Trading Academy happened on January 2020, my first journey actually began way before that - it was on June 2019 when I first spoke to Steven and was first introduced to Platinum Trading Academy. However, as I was in a really bad financial situation, I did not sign up. Slowly, I managed my budget and saved up for the course until a couple of months later, a few days before Christmas, I wrote Steven an email telling him I'm ready. After signing up, I was contacted by the support team to provide me details of my Trading Floor account and they showed me how to install their system. A few weeks later, I was contacted by the mentor assigned to me, Russell Gordon, and we decided to hold my first lesson in January. My mentor, Russell Gordon, is very knowledgeable in the field and very patient with guiding me through the course. From BPC, to fibs, to market correlation, to patterns, to money management, to fundamentals, he explained them all clearly. He has also shown great flexibility managing my schedule. As I work on a 12-hour rotating shift pattern in the Oil and Gas industry on the other side of the globe, my shift schedule is very difficult to synchronize with. During the duration of my course, I started to apply the knowledge I have learnt on a demo account and to my surprise (and excitement), I finally had my first positive month. Then another positive month came and then the next. I would like to thank Steven, Russell and the support team for helping me embark on this journey and I believe it is only just the beginning."


"Just a note to say how much I have enjoyed the Platinum forex training with Russell, it has been an education taught in a no-nonsense manner, no fluff, just straightforward knowledge, which has helped me to see the market from a completely different perspective. Russell's guidance has been invaluable, along with the Platinum Trading System. I am now taking trades I would never have taken with my old knowledge, and the advice from Russell to practice, practise, practice, and then do some more practice has been the way forward for me. The system has worked very well for me even in the wild times we are having now, I would not hesitate to recommend Platinum to anyone thinking of trading, as it will stop new traders from making expensive mistakes. My only gripe is MT4, you have to have the eyesight of a sniper to see the figures, but I have just transferred the levels on to a platform I can see clearly, so it is not too much of a problem, Thank you all for your time and patience with me in the run up to joining, and I look forward to many more good trading days."

"I found the Platinum online trading academy’s experience overall to be very good, far better than I have experienced elsewhere. It is certainly the trading course I am most grateful for finding."


"I was looking for a professional trading education provider and Platinum fit nicely into that criteria.

"I have been with Platinum Trading Academy for about 12 months now, I didn’t want to write a review until I had seen a true data sample of my trades using the strategies and techniques taught. The last 12 months I have retuned 55% on my initial investment into a live trading account! I am incredibly happy with this return as my risk was very low with an extremely low drawdown on my account. The price of the course may seem a lot at the start, but you get what you pay for in this case. If you want a truly professional forex mentor to teach you then it comes at a premium, but with fantastic results at the end of it. I would highly recommend to those who are looking for a trading course whether a beginner or intermediate."


"Having completed many Forex courses previously, I found the mentoring I received with Platinum to be invaluable. The Platinum strategies and the algorithm have helped to make me a much better trader."

I would absolutely recommend Platinum trading to anyone looking to enter the market as they teach you at a level and pace that fits around your capabilities. Many thanks"


"I joined Platinum around 3 months ago and my trading has been consistent ever since, not only do they provide first class education but excellent analysis too. I am up almost £5,000 in 3 months thank to them. Something i would never have dreamed of making without their help."


"Platinum deliver what they promise, they support you and provide you with expert guidance, I have been trading with Platinum for 9 months now hence the reason for my testimonial. I have found the training and support absolutely brilliant. I have used a number other types of training and software courses, some from around the world, but have found Platinum by far the best. They deliver what they promise. This is the only firm I have found that really does support you on a one to one basis and for me this will be my means to a retirement plan. Thank you Platinum for all your support."


"I have been trading the financial markets since 2009 and have not had any consistency in trading as I have learn all the wrong methods. After Joining Platinum and under the guidance of the Platinum Team. I learnt that times frames do not exist and now am a full time trader and have nearly recouped all the money I spent on learning fx in just 9 months. Absolutely amazing."
