The institutional way of forex trading

Bankers and big financial institutions are always making huge amounts of money from trading Currencies, Commodities, and Indices. Our online trading academy embraces this style of forex trading and educates our members to adopt the psychology of Institutional forex traders and abandon the retail forex trader mentality.

Retail forex traders tend to use multiple technical indicators such as Moving Averages, Stochastics, RSI, Bollinger bands, MACD, etc without fully understanding the application of these technical indicators on the financial markets. Have you ever thought why some of the largest hedge funds spend millions of pounds on developing their algorithms? It’s simply because you have to use certain permutations and combinations to create that perfect trading strategy.

The forex markets move based on Institutional Order Flow and the prediction of market movements can only come with the experience of trading at an Institutional level. The average forex trader on the open market will try and find the holy grail of trading by following certain forex signal services. Without proper understanding of these forex signals, and the reason behind the trade, you could be left with significant losses. This is why it is paramount to learn, follow, and adapt the institutional methodologies used by financial leaders around the globe.

Learn to trade the market with professionals possessing invaluable experience gathered over many years. Trade with them live instead of trying to read multiple books in an attempt to learn how to trade forex.

Our focus and what you will gain

Our aim is to help you achieve your goals, whether you want to become a full-time trader, earn a secondary income, boost your retirement fund, or achieve full financial freedom. We want to show you how you can take advantage of a 7 Trillion-Dollar Market by learning the art of currency trading from some of our certified professionals that have been trading forex for more than 17 years.

We will teach you everything from the very basics of how the markets function to how, why, and when institutions trade currencies and make money from the foreign exchange markets every single day. We explain to you how to use our forex trading strategies to consistently and profitably trade the forex markets via our Live Trading floor.

Please check our Forex Blogs and Trading Videos so you can see us live in action.

Personal support

If you are new to foreign exchange (FX or Forex) trading, we have trading courses that are customised according to your personal needs. We offer a dedicated support team that will be ready to assist and guide you on your financial trading journey on a personal basis. We aim to provide you support via Skype, telephone, online mentoring and Platinum Trading Television, which is just like watching CNBC or Bloomberg but with a TV channel dedicated to forex trading.

For forex traders that have been trading in the financial markets for some time, but lack the consistency they desire, our dedicated Forex Mentors will give you straightforward forex trading strategies that you can implement by simply placing pending orders in the market. These trading strategies are also known as “Set & Forget” strategies. The benefit of these strategies is that they will allow you to spend more time on profitability, and less time on watching forex news, searching for the holy grail in financial market trading. We want you to trade forex successfully and with confidence, which is why we provide you with dedicated one-to-one mentoring from experts in the field of forex.

Platinum has a 24-hour forex trading support desk so that you can reach us from anywhere in the world at any time of the day. Please check our Forex strategies page on the website so you can see our in-depth trading analysis that we provide, along with our trading results.

Please ensure when you start trading your Forex broker is authorised and regulated by the financial conduct authority if you are trading Forex from the UK.

Precision and simplicity

Our Forex Trading System and Methodology eliminates time-consuming Technical Analysis and gives precise entry and exit points into the foreign exchange market, and can assist you in becoming a consistent and profitable forex trader. The Platinum Trading Academy is a UK-based company that provides online forex trading education and support with an educational and easy to follow step-by-step Financial Trading Plan.

Time is a key factor for most people, and we train individuals from all walks of life to make a secondary or part-time income, and aim to eventually turn them into full-time professional traders.

Whether you are a Doctor, Engineer, IT Consultant, work offshore in the Oil and Gas sector, or just looking to change your career because you’re not passionate about what you do, we can help you.

You will have access to Foreign Exchange Market Analysis and Forex Trade Setups on the Live London Trading Floor that can help a trader with any level of experience pick the perfect entry points time and time again.

Becoming a millionaire through smart forex trading is a very real possibility.

But it isn’t as simple as just having the right tools and training. To reach true success in trading it takes discipline and investing time into developing the right mindset. In this guide, we walk you through the habits that stop you from reaching your true potential and becoming a forex millionaire.

Forgetting About Your Health

There is an assumption in successful trading that you need to work with 110% effort, every hour of every day. This, of course, is a complete myth. Although hard work is indeed required to become a millionaire, it is impossible to always be working at your best when you aren’t looking after your well being.

Overworking yourself, eating rubbish food and being completely inactive is a sure-fire way to burn yourself out – in turn, this will lead to poor performance in every area of your life. This is a bad strategy, as very few people achieve millionaire status overnight, instead, it takes years of consistent performance, which is made possible by taking care of your health.

Not Managing Your Time Properly

We all have the same 24 hours in the day – so why is it that some people are so much more successful than others?

Managing your time is crucial in becoming a successful trader. Finding smart ways to achieve better results without having to invest more timeis the key to getting the most out of your day.

For example, you may be able to learn about forex trading by reading endless blogs, watching endless YouTube videos and learning from your mistakes, but this route will take up a huge amount of your time. Instead, it can be a smart idea to work with a leading trading provider (like us) who delivers only the most important information and can mentor you, helping you avoid costly mistakes.

Being efficient with your time isn’t just about finding the best methods and resources. It is also about understanding the best time to do things. For example, if you wake up early, you may be able to get 2-3 hours of uninterrupted work time before others start to demand your attention. You could even save yourself hours every week by leaving for the office early to avoid rush hour traffic.

Ignoring Valuable Resources

When people achieve a little success, it is easy for them to assume they have learnt everything they need to know. But this is never really the case, there is always an opportunity to learn new things and accelerate your success. This is especially true in spaces such as forex trading, where strategies that used to work can become outdated.

Even billionaire investor Warren Buffet still reportedly dedicates 80% of his day to reading and learning new things.

It isn’t just specialist information and industry news that will help you become more successful. Expanding your mind and your interests can help you draw inspiration or spark creativity, which will often drive better results.

For example, although philosophy may not be directly applicable to forex trading, understanding the principles behind stoicism could help you stay calm during dips in the market, increasing the chances of your long-term success.

Focusing on One Income

Some statistics suggest that on average millionaires have at least 7 income streams. Relying on one income not only limits your ability to earn but can also increase your risk. This has become apparent during the recent pandemic, withsome people losing 100% of their income due to the various lockdowns and restrictions.

There are typically 7 categories of income streams you may explore:

  1. Earned income – such as a salary
  2. Business income – such as owning a business
  3. Interest income – such as lending your money in exchange for interest
  4. Dividend income – such as money paid to you when you own shares
  5. Rental income – such as money made by renting out a property
  6. Capital gains – such as money earned when you sell an investment for more than you purchased it for
  7. Royalties – such as money earned when someone pays to use something you own such as a brand or intellectual property

You may also choose to spread your risk within these streams. For example, you may own multiple businesses in different niches.


Not Budgeting

However successful you are at trading, if you spend all your profits on liabilities rather than assets then you are never likely to reach millionaire status.

Creating a budget will help you stay in control of your spending. Depending on your goals, it is not always a bad idea to allocate some budget to activities which you find enjoyable but aren’t necessarily going to increase your wealth, but following a budget will ensure that you do not overspend in these areas.

Ignoring the Bigger Picture

There are very few accidental millionaires in the world. Or at least there are very few millionaires who didn’t have a big vision for their wealth or business.

To become a millionaire, you need to have a clear idea of what you are working towards. Not only will this help maintain your motivation, but it will also ensure you don’t waste time moving in a direction that matters very little to your success.

Ignoring the Smaller Picture

Ignoring the finer details can be just as harmful as not having a clear idea of the bigger picture.

Just like small increases in profits can compound into huge future profits, small expenses over time can amount to big losses. This is especially true when you compare those losses to the opportunity cost if you had invested that money into generating a return.

For example, unused subscriptions to things like streaming services, gyms and magazines could be much better allocated to investments.

Not Starting

If you are the type of person who is always waiting for the ‘perfect’ time to start – you might be waiting forever. Whether it’s starting a business or starting forex trading, the best time to start was ten years ago and the second-best time to start is now!

Although it is always good to learn the basics before you begin, getting started will help you improve quickly by giving you hands-on experience and letting you learn from your mistakes.

Time in the game not only makes you a better trader but also gives you more time to take advantage of the power of compounding.


Surrounding Yourself with the Wrong People

How do the people around you make you feel? Are they supportive of your goals or do they dismiss what you are trying to achieve?

It isn’t always obvious to us, but who we surround ourselves with is crucial to our success. Although it isn’t always possible to surround yourself with millionaires, spending time with those who you can learn from and those who support your ambition is important to keep you motivated and on the road to becoming a millionaire.

Spending on Vices

We have already discussed how spending on non-essential liabilities will disrupt your route to becoming a millionaire. But spending on vices such as alcohol, drugs, gambling and junk food deserves a special section.

Not only are these vices bad for your budget, but they will also impact your mood and cloud your mind, making it more difficult to make clear decisions in your pursuit to become a millionaire.

We aren’t saying that enjoying a couple of glasses of wine or pints of beer is going to completely ruin your chances, but spending excessively on any vice is bad for your mind, your health and your wealth.

Wasting Time on Low-value Past Times

Spending time doing things like watching TV or playing video games can help you relax and benefit your mental health. However, unless you are a professional gamer or TV critic, spending excessive time doing either of these is going to harm your wealth.

Instead of spending hours streaming Netflix, invest time in reading books, taking online courses or watching educational videos online. If watching TV or playing games helps you relax, allocate specific time to this rather than letting them take over your day.


Being Scared of Risk

Unless you plan on inheriting millions from your family, you will never become a millionaire without taking risks. This can be anything from taking business risks such as investing heavily in marketing a new product to investment risks such as investing in stocks that could go up or down.

Being completely risk-averse will likely see you pouring all your savings into a basic savings account. Although you may make a small amount of money through interest, these accounts historically do not beat inflation and you will therefore see the value of your savings reduce over time.

The remedy to being afraid of risk is understanding it. When you know the real risks involved in certain investments you can weigh them up against the potential rewards and assesses whether they are worth it or not.

Pretending You Know Everything

“If you wish to improve, be content to appear clueless or stupid in extraneous matters” – Epictetus

In our super-connected world, it is easy to slip into a trap of wanting to appear all-knowing all of the time. We look up to ‘influencers’ who seem to lead perfect lifestyles and appear to have an answer, or at least a strong opinion, on almost every matter.

Knowing that you cannot know everything is crucial to success in two ways:

  1. It allows you to constantly stay inquisitive and open to new ideas in your area of expertise
  2. It stops you from wasting your time on matters which are of no value to you

For example, if you specialise in forex trading, the details of the latest TV show, the latest sports scores and what your neighbours are up to is not at all relevant to achieving your ultimate goal.

Negative Thinking

We’ve all done it. We find ourselves looking at situations negatively…

“What’s the point? I’ll never become a millionaire”

Frankly, if you think like this – you never will.

Although it can be healthy to apply a certain level of pessimism to situations, your overarching mindset must be positive to achieve success. Think of it like this…

“I WILL become a millionaire…but perhaps selling chocolate teapots isn’t the right route to achieving this”

Being generous with Your Time

We all want to be thought of as generous and we often find ourselves saying yes to things even though they don’t interest us or bring us any value.

Being more cautious about how you spend your time doesn’t mean you should stop helping others. But it does mean that you should consider how you can best support people given your situation.

For example, it might be very nice of a brain surgeon to volunteer for litter picking – but is that the best use of their time and skills?

Learning how to say no will help you focus on how you can make the biggest impact possible, whether that is growing your wealth so you can support your loved ones or applying your knowledge and skills to supporting your community or environment.

Becoming a Forex Millionaire

Becoming a millionaire takes more than just knowing how to generate income. It also takes discipline to repeat those income-generating tasks and to not spend more than you make.

In this guide, we have walked you through some habits which may stop you from becoming a forex millionaire. Take time to assess which of these habits you have and work out ways to eradicate them from your life.

“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.”


"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 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 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."
