This document refers to an offer for education in Forex Trading. Trading in general,
including Forex Trading, carries a risk of loss, up to, including, and possibly exceeding all
available funds being traded. There is no guarantee made explicitly or implicitly
regarding results before, during, or after the period of training. Additionally, past results
are not necessarily indicative of future results. There is no way to predict a market. Real
Trading does not depend on predictability, but rather relies on sound equity management
foremost, followed by using time-proven systems. While Special FX Academy and its
subsidiaries, principals, and associates will always endeavor to limit the trainee’s risks,
there is no guarantee that losses will not occur.
This 6-week course covers everything a prospective trader needs to know, understand, and implement in order to be successful at trading. Notice that we didn’t add the word Forex to the prior sentence. Trading in any market shares more similarities with trading in other markets than not. Once you absorb and apply our program to your trading, you will be able to successfully trade not just the Forex Market, but also Stocks, Options, Futures, ETFs, and other instruments. The psychology and the mechanics are the same for all of them. However, both Andres and Callum (your instructors) primarily trade the Forex Market, for many reasons which you will understand once you go through the training, and that is the focus of TAP.
The program requires a heavy level of commitment from the student, as all things in life do, if you want to succeed and excel. You will be learning from actual traders who do this for a living day in and day out, week after week, month after month, and year after year. Both Andres and Callum have been living primarily off of their trading profits for years, and living quite nicely, too.
But once upon a time, they were in your shoes, and they still vividly remember what it felt like, and what was needed before they could become who they are today. The TAP curriculum was designed precisely out of their experiences in becoming successful traders.
Every aspect of the Forex Market, trading, technical analysis, fundamental analysis, systems, equity management, and more will be covered. It’s important to make sure that the student has all the right concepts and integrates them properly. The course material is pre-recorded in the form of videos, each covering a very specific topic that you need to master, while explaining why the concept is necessary, and how it fits in with everything else. You will also have access to documentation, templates, and other written and visual material that is needed in order to succeed. Access to Andres, Callum, and the rest of the team will happen during regularly scheduled weekly Q&A calls, some live practical sessions throughout the curriculum, and even one on one calls if Andres or Callum deem them necessary, case by case.
Your access to the course material (including updates), as well as to the live weekly Q&A calls, is lifetime guaranteed. You will not be charged again even if you are still showing up for the live Q&A calls 20 years from now. In fact, we’d be very pleased and proud if you did keep up the relationship with SFXA.
In early 2015, Andres Pedraza began sharing his trading knowledge with select friends and acquaintances, simply because by that point he was deriving the bulk of his income solely through trading, people started noticing, and he likes to share. Time constraints, however, limited his ability to take on students, and he began writing a primer on Forex Trading meant to guide both absolute beginners and novice traders towards proper understanding of the Forex Market, its strategy, proper equity management, the psychology of trading, and how to combine all of that to consistently make profits from trading. That book was finally published in 2017, titled Making It in the Forex Market (available on Amazon).
At the same time he founded a company to handle the expected influx of inquiries and requests that the book might engender. That was the beginning of Special FX Academy. Andres also began noticing since early in the decade that there were many companies pretending to teach Forex Trading, but he also noticed that most of them were simply interested in enrolling students and selling them course after course, product after product, without any intention of "graduating” them at some future point in time. These companies have slick marketing and release a new product as often as every two weeks,each purporting to be the “ultimate” thing a trader needs in order to be successful. And every couple of weeks, there is a new “ultimate” product and the prior ones are now said to be outdated or otherwise inferior to the new one.
This abuse of people’s hopes, and outright scams being perpetrated, led to Andres becoming very outspoken against these practices. He decided to create real, effective training, and rejected the ineffective approach used by the shady operators mentioned above.
He decided that his training and business would not depend on charging students again and again for products and training that wouldn’t get them to their destination. By chance (is there such a thing?), Andres met Callum McLean, a certified NLP coach very well-versed in both the psychology of proper trading, and trading itself. They agreed on everything Andres had envisioned, and a partnership was born which not only continues strong to this day, but has proven effective with our students to date.
Today, Special FX Academy is the company under which Andres and Callum operate, and serves as a clearinghouse for their writings, a gathering place for mentees, students, and peers, and a place for traders of all levels to share information.
