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.

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.

fear of losing a trade

The fear of losing a trade can be very debilitating and can actually cause you to lose money or in the extreme lose your account which of course no one wants to do, but why does this come about after all you have had extensive trading and possibly traded large sized trades on your dummy account with increasing confidence as you learn from errors and refine your trading techniques and strategies.

The main issue is linked to the fact that at least 80% of trading is linked to human behaviour including fear. Within my trading journey I have experienced two distinct fears, these are; Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO) and Fear Of Losing A Trade. These fears are very real but thankfully can be overcome and once recognised and dealt with you can become more successful in your trading. So how can these be controlled and ultimately overcome? Let’s take these one at a time.

FOMO – this arrives from the fear that you are missing an opportunity to make money from a perceived market move or price change. Often this leads to trade entry based on emotion and not through technical and fundamental analysis which can lead to stress during the live position and potentially loss. The first thing to note is that the markets are open both 24/7 expect from Friday 10 PM to Sunday 5 PM (EST) and Christmas Day. Therefore there is ample opportunity to place trades in a systematic manner using the strategy that you have developed and no need to rush in. After all the saying ‘fools rush in where angels fear to tread’ is a simple truth that applies to this situation. Another way of looking at this is that if the price does not come to you then why go to it? All you are doing is decreasing the probability of a winning trade as you veer away from your analysis. In phycology terms, this is difficult as we all want to be active in our work and in increasing our account, and therefore it is counter-intuitive to ‘do nothing and wait for the market. Nevertheless, this is what we must do in order to grow your account. Personally speaking, I can go two or three days without an order being filled, and then later that week two trades get filled pretty much together. So the main thing to take from this is to try and relax and wait for the price to come to you. This gives you a greater probability of making successful winning trades and actually decreases your stress levels whilst in trade execution as you have executed from a point of analysis and not from instinct or frustration.

Fear of Losing

How this fear is exhibited through closing trades due to stress levels becoming too high to deal with and the result is to close the trade which if left alone may have presented a winning opportunity, so why do we do this? The simple answer is that the human ‘flight or flight’ or acute stress syndrome response has not evolved much from since humans had to hunt animals for food which could kill and also and probably more common humans and in the main men had to be involved in bloody battles at close quarter and therefore under these examples this response was possibly quite welcome and helpful. However within trading it is not that helpful as being in a trade will not kill us and together with risk and money management, the loss can be accepted. In order to deal with this fear I propose the following process steps:

  • Money management – by placing your stops at reasonable levels and either moving the stop up, taking some profit, or some other mechanism you can reduce your risk of total loss for that trade.
  • Employ a risk management structure – that suits you as an individual. For instance, the total risk of trade on my account is less than 1% of the trade account and when placed in this context then the risk of losing your account is minimal.
  • Acceptance of loss – in trading losing trades are a necessary risk of this activity. I am yet to meet any trader that has a 100% win record over a sustained period. This is why we place stops. This is an important point as when we enter a trade we are making an investment decision and as part of that risk we are placing a certain amount of pips as risk be that 20, 40 or whatever stop or contingency that we decide. So why would we place more risk of not having a winning trade by closing the position prior to the stop being hit? It makes no sense from a practical not investment view. Having said this there are unnecessary risks within trading that are to be avoided and entry through FOMO is only one example, there are numerous others that you should remove from your trading as you deepen your understanding and develop discipline and your strategy.
  • Remember why you are doing this – we all have differing reasons for entering trading. Mine is financial freedom and being able not to relay on corporations for my salary. I remind myself of this every day before I trade. Remember most people who work in a corporation will get paid routinely even if they are not doing a particularly good job, but in trading, you have to bring you’re a Game every day as no one is handing out salaries. So what can we do to help particularly? I have found the following helpful.
    • Sleep – we all know sleep is important and by resting properly we are not bringing fatigue into the trading day.
    • Meditation – prior to getting to the computer I like to find a quiet space for ten minutes and meditate through what I want to achieve in life, remind myself why I am trading and visualise a successful trading day. The latter element I learnt when I started diving and it helped me enormously and maybe it may help you.
    • Analysis – within Platinum Trading Academy you have had excellent training and have access to both the trading floor and the algo, take time to understand how price has moved overnight and also and more importantly take time to understand the fundamental picture as this will assist in identifying possible BUY or SELL areas in the algo.
    • Keep the trade size to a level that you are comfortable with, you don’t have to trade at 1% you can trade less and sometimes trading too large a size can lead to pressure and errors. This is not a sprint, it is a marathon.
    • Keeping up – markets move during the time you will be trading and keeping up with both scheduled events and sporadic inputs will allow you to determine whether your morning analysis requires modification.
    • Acceptance – you will lose trades, these will lessen as you become more confident in your strategy.
    • Confidence – have confidence in your trading and allow your trade to run. You have made this investment decision based on analysis and leveraging the skills that you have honed through your training so have the confidence to fully execute and ignore the fear or flight response. After all, no one is putting a battle axe through your head!!

“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."
