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.

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.

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.

The Surprising Truth - How Bank Works
Do you really know how banks work?

It all seems pretty simple, right?

Well, what if I told you that the banks are up to something that most people aren’t aware of and it is REALLY bad for you and your money?

In this article, we cover:
  • How people think banks work
  • Why this isn’t the whole truth and how banks really make their money
  • Why this is great for banks, but not good news for you and me
  • What you can do to beat the banks and make substantial returns on your hard-earned cash.

So, You Think You Know How Banks Work?

What is your opinion on banks?

Most people are fairly indifferent.

You can deposit your money and they will look after it until you pop in to withdraw it. They might even pay you a little bit of interest so you can see your money grow while you sit back and relax.

When you need a little extra cash, you can even go to a bank and they might give you a credit card, a loan or a mortgage which you can pay off over time…although you do have to pay them a lot more interest on the money they loan you than they pay you on the money you give them.

On the other hand, perhaps you aren’t a huge fan because of the role they played in the financial crisis of 2008. But that is all in the past.

All in all, banks are ok. Right?

But what if you found out that banks don’t really work like that at all? Or at least it isn’t really how they literally make load of cash by leveraging the money you give them.

Banks are Legal Money Trees

So how do they do it? Let me introduce you to fractional reserve banking.

Fractional reserve banking is the real way that banks make money and they are using your cash to do it. Here is how…

You’ve been working your socks off all month and finally, payday has come! You take your well-deserved cheque for £1000 and pay it directly into the bank. But contrary to what you may believe, the bank doesn’t just pop that cash into their vault and leave it there until you come back to collect it.

In fact, your money probably sits in the bank for a very short period of time.

This is because one of their other customers (let’s call him Pablo) wants to borrow that cash on his credit card. Banks are legally allowed to lend your cash to others as long as they hold at least 10% of it back in reserve. You know, so they can at least give you some of your cashback if you come knocking at their door.

Pablo is a happy man because the bank has just given him a shiny new credit with £900 on (your £1000 minus the 10% reserve).

What you need to know about Pablo is that he loves sweets, like REALLY loves them. So, he goes to John’s sweet shop and spends his £900 on a wholesale load of jelly babies. John is delighted that he now has £900, so he goes and puts that £900 in the bank for safekeeping.

And then the process starts again…

…the bank takes John’s £900, keeps 10% (£90) and lends the other £810 out to someone else. As you can see, at this point your £900 has now allowed the banks to lend out £1710 in total, even though it hasn’t actually increased in value.

This process can be repeated over and over and over again.

You can calculate how much money can be created through fractional reserve banking by multiplying the original deposit by 1 divided by the percentage of required reserve. Using our example above:

£1000 x (1/10%) = £10,000

So, not only are banks lending your cash out to others and charging them high rates of interest, but they are also doing this over and over again, creating vast sums of money in the process.

Admittedly this is pretty smart of the banks. But it is also pretty bad for us.

Naughty Banks

Fractional reserve banking has been used by banks to ‘generate’ cash for a long time. So, is it really that bad for you?

Well, yes…

If you have opened a savings account recently, you will be well aware of how pathetic interest rates are. When you consider the fact that banks are lending out your money to other people with interest rates upwards of 50%, the 0.01% interest they are paying you hardly seems fair.

But wait, it gets worse.

Not only are banks paying you a rubbish interest rate on your savings, but they are also

Using your savings to make your cash worthless!

By using fractional reserve banking, your bank is generating more and more cash. As the amount of cash in the marketplace goes up, the value of that cash goes down.

Let’s use an analogy to explain…

Imagine you own a chicken that lays golden eggs.

It is the only chicken in the world that lays golden eggs and people give you £1million to take a magical, shiny golden egg off your hands – woohoo.

But suddenly those eggs start hatching and the chickens that come out of them also lay golden eggs. Now there are hundreds of chickens that lay golden eggs. Now you would be lucky to get £10,000 per egg. As more eggs are sold and more golden egg-laying chickens are hatched – your golden eggs become worthless.

Similarly, as banks create more money, your money is suddenly worthless. This devaluation of cash is what is known as inflation.

The combination of rubbish interest rates and the fact that banks are lending your money to drive inflation means that the money you save in the bank is worth less today than it was last month.

A Better Way

With this knowledge in hand, it can seem like trying to save or grow your money is a waste of time…which it is. Or at least it is if you only save your money with a bank. But before we move on to some other, better, options let me explain one thing.

You NEED a bank account and a savings account.


Haven’t you just been telling me exactly why keeping my cash in the bank is a bad idea?

Well, yes. But there are two circumstances that you need the structure that a bank offers:

  1. For your day to day spending needs (rent, food etc)
  2. An emergency fund

Banks are a (relatively) safe bet when it comes to holding the money you need to access immediately. Pouring all your cash into other investments isn’t a good idea. After all, heating engineers don’t accept McDonalds shares when your boiler breaks down.

How much you keep in your emergency fund will depend on your circumstances and your lifestyle. Most people will need £2000 as a minimum and you should ultimately look to hold 3-12 months’ worth of expenses, depending on how risk-averse you are.

Just remember that your emergency fund is likely to go down in real value as inflation increases, so may need topping up from time to time.

Once your day-to-day needs and emergency fund is covered, that is when we get to the exciting and profitable stuff.

When it comes to beating the bank, there are plenty of options out there. Which one works best for you depends on your appetite for risk, desired lifestyle and area of interest. Here are a few ideas that you may choose to explore:

  • Investing in property – g. buy to let, flipping properties, investing in real estate funds
  • Investing in stocks and shares – g. buying shares in McDonalds, Tesla and Apple
  • Investing in tracker funds – g. buying shares of funds that track FTSE 500 companies
  • Investing in managed funds – g. buying shares of a specialist funds run by fund managers
  • Buying, holding and selling cryptocurrencies – g. buying and selling Bitcoin or Litecoin
  • Buying, holding and selling on the foreign exchange market – g. buying and selling foreign currencies
  • Buying, holding and selling resources – g. buying and selling gold

There are countless options out there. Each with their own level of risk and reward.

For example, investing in tracker funds is a relatively safe bet and may help you beat inflation over a long period of time, but is unlikely to help you significantly improve your lifestyle in the short or medium term. On the other hand, trading in cryptocurrencies is perceived as riskier, but with market volatility also comes the opportunity to make significant returns.

“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."
