Summary

The Academy Of Financial Trading is nothing more than a hastily produced, trading educational product that was created by a diploma mill. The company sells educational products on a wide range of topics and niches. I don't know about you, but I don't want my trading educator also selling an educational product on baby nutrition. The course instructors are fictional characters with no verifiable trading experience or track record. Company claims to be the worlds greatest trading educator that has been featured on a wide variety of well known media outlets...all pure fiction.

Pros: Absolutely zero value.
Cons: From top to bottom, one lie after another. A diploma mill looking to take advantage of the naive.

Thanks for reading today’s review of Academy Of Financial Trading, a self described world leader in trading education.

There is no live trading experience. Instead, students sign up for a tier one educational program known as the “Introduction To Financial Trading Program” at a price of $129. Next, the student would move into the stage two program known as the “Foundation Trading Program” at $650. And then finally, students would move into the final educational phase known as the “Ultimate Traders Program” at $3,350. At the end of phase 3, the website proclaims that each student will be certified as a full time professional trader.

Initial Observation

The Academy Of Financial Trading website is quite nice looking and well organized. A very clean and neat looking presentation. The course descriptions look well organized, there are a few nice videos, some fancy award emblems proclaiming that they are the best trading educator on the planet since 2012, and they proclaim to have been featured on a wide variety of well known and respectable news and education outlets. The listed news outlets and business journals include International Business Times, The London Economic, Boston Business Journal, Market Watch, CNBC, etc. However, I went to each of these websites and searched for any references to the The Academcy Of Financial Trading…none exist whatsoever. In fact, I spent over an hour scouring through these websites using all known search features, as well as automated, site wide text searching tools, there simply is nothing on any of these websites that mention the Academy Of Financial Trading. It appears that the company created this graphic to imply credibility.

Next, I became curious about the awards that boldly proclaim that the Academy Of Financial Trading has been awarded the “Best Online Trading Educator 2012, 2013, 2014, and even 2015. Have a look at these fancy awards graphics below:

Academy of Financial Trading Awards

What is amazing about this fancy graphic is that the company proclaims to be the very best trading educator for the United States, Australia, Europe, and Asia. Wow! The only problem is that these awards appear to be just simple web graphics, there is not an actual organization that have issued these awards. Its as if this company simply hired a graphic artist to design something official looking.

Another thing I find fascinating about this company is the proclaimed amount of professional traders that they have been able to produce through their trading educational program. As of July, 2015…an amazing 120,528 graduates. Considering that this trading educator has only been around since November 2012, this would mean that during the entire 31 month history of this trading educator…they are graduating 3,888 students each month. My only question, does anyone really believe this stuff?

Pure Fantasy

Of course, I had some serious questions for this self proclaimed, world famous trading university, like who are the instructors? What are their qualifications? Do they have a trading track record? And so I sent an email out requesting more information. Unfortunately, the company could not provide any substantive information on whom is actually running this organization. Just several responses like, “our traders are all world famous money managers”, and “we have assembled the worlds greatest team of internationally recognized traders”, etc. They would then refer me to the company website which contains absolutely nothing regarding who these people are. Just marketing fluff that continuously loops around and around.

Next, I asked for any sort of proof that these internationally recognized and world class traders are actually trading. The company response is that these world class traders could not release any trading information as this might release proprietary trading information, trading secrets and advanced techniques.

Digging Deeper…A Diploma Mill

As many of my readers know, I have gotten pretty good at uncovering fraud and marketing BS. One of my favorite techniques is to trace server addresses and match domain registrations. Well, it turns out that Academy Of Financial Trading is nothing more than a diploma mill. In fact, this company has a wide range of educational offerings, covering a wide swath of interests. And so, lets take a closer look at what this company is really up too. The following is a just a taster.

Trading Education Diploma

Digital Marketing Diploma

Child Nutrition Diploma

Microsoft Excel Diploma

Sales Psychology Diploma

This is just to name a few. There a wide range of different subjects and topics.

Academy Of Financial Trading

So what exactly is the Academy Of Financial Trading? Quite simply, it is nothing more than yet another savvy online marketer that has thrown together a course and is attempting to sell it for thousands of dollars. There are no real traders behind this company. There is no track record of trading success. From top to bottom, this company is nothing more than a marketing project. This company specifically targets educational niches where consumers are searching for specific solutions. They then whip together a course, as well as fictional characters that are providing the education. It is then pushed out onto the internet like a fisherman drops a net and waits for some poor fish to swim through.

The real shame about all of this is that the people that have thrown together these education courses have little regard for the financial welfare of their victim. The uneducated and unsophisticated can easily become distracted by fancy web graphics and fake video testimonials. These victims then place their financial future into the hands of these marketing charlatans. They invest their money and time into the educational product, then they begin speculating in the financial markets. The results are highly predictable.

Well that’s it for today. Thanks for reading and sorry this was yet another review of yet another worthless trading product. Don’t forget to leave your comments below.

Oh OH….now I am nervous. And I am committed financially for the course…. and part way through the Ultimate Trading Program [UTP]. Got a reduced fee of 72% off the regular price of $3K+. It was offered, and I must say strongly promoted with a deadline to accept, on completion of foundation training. I did the foundation training via groupon $19. Very interesting and informative. I was quite keen to continue! The UTP seems to be on the up and up, and very intense, information and material wise. It is 6 weeks long with on line webinar sessions on Tues,… Read more »

Hi Sam, it is boring at this time and very Time consuming. I will have a Look at this courses later on. Now I think that they make it more complicaded than it is. The Strategie is not the Money worth. Be carefull. Because the Academy and the Broker have the Same owner. And i have read that the Broker Earn 50% on lostt trades. Probably They want you to loose. I do not Say it is wrong what they are teaching. But….

In my opinion they seem on the up and up. You don’t have to go to Pip index which they disclose as a related company AND you can test their strategy out on demo accounts with no real loss and do so with other companies.

Pete
Guest

They lost a lot of revenue when it was disclosed by this site that they make money from your trading losses through their brokerage pipindex.

They only disclosed it to you because it was disclosed here first otherwise they would still and probably still are violating customers who have not read this review.

Anyway I don’t know why I am even writing this, It’s clear you are an employee of academyft or a paid up shill.

I did both the foundation course and the ultimate traders program. The foundation course was as described, an introductory course giving you a basic knowledge of markets, trends etc. (if I’m honest this could have be learned on babypips). However the UTP was incredibly well presented, informative and helpful. I have been trading the strategy and using the indicator for over 6 months. I have made a good profit (I will not disclose the percentage) and my account is getting healthier every month which when you bear in mind the majority of traders lose puts me in good stead.

I have to say that I was really surprised to come across the negative commentary here regarding the Academy of Financial Training. I don’t usually engage online this way, but felt compelled to at least give my input. I have completed the foundations course as well as the Ultimate Traders Program and found it all to be very, very educational and informative. The people I interacted with were never pushy or trying to sell me things. I completed the original UTP months ago, but now log in weekly for their live applications course, which is completely free. I have found… Read more »

I agree, I have nearly completed the Foundation Trading Course and so far I am quite impressed. They hardly mention Pipindex except in their live demo class where even then they made it clear we could use any broker. They did however automatically sign me up for a demo account with Pipindex. That being said every class people ask about brokers and they refuse to make any recommendations other than to use a STP broker and do proper research before picking one. They also tell people to use google and only go with brokers who are upfront about their fees… Read more »

Hilarious!! They didn’t mention PipIndex as they got rumbled over 6 months ago that they made money when people lost in their trading account.

Your argument is bull. brokers make money on your trades regardless wether you win or lose money.

Pete
Guest
Bassaex, you obviously have no idea how this industry works or what academyft were/are doing here. Practically 100% of all new traders lose all their money. FACT Let’s say you put $5k in a trading account. The commission generated from this over 3 months would be about about $300 for the brokerage. Brokers don’t give a fuck about this commission. It’s peanuts and not enough revenue from a client to run a successful brokerage considering the cost to acquire a client is a multiple of this. Most brokers will pay up to $1,000 in marketing just to acquire a ONE… Read more »

I had an interview with this company last year. The primary purpose of the job was to remove the BabyPips page on AcademyFT from the first page of Google. The BabyPips forum thread has negative comments about their product and they wanted it deranked. The page is still there and now this review comes up too, so they haven’t been able to do much since. Back to the role itself, the company made no effort to hide that the same people are behind PipIndex. Their EA even used the signatures interchangeably. The whole place had a very salesy and shady… Read more »

I just started demo trading their specific strategy and I will soon know if it works, and I will post my demo account screen shot in 90 days and I am starting with a 10k account.

Hi Ryan
So how is your demo account trading going so far ?
there are so many people on here saying this is a scam I am 50/50 on wether or not to believe it
so am trying to get some hard facts/evidence to prove this either way.
and the only way I think is to have some results from the people who are actually doing it.
looking forward to hearing from you
Sam

Pete

Ask Academyft for a live (real account) trading statement for the last 12 months that runs their trend based turtle trading system software. If they can’t or won’t provide it to you it means they don’t use it themselves. This system would have failed miserably as we have been in choppy rangey markets with very few sustained trends in that time period. You learn to trade by trading and in the process finding your own method that works for you. You might have a natural ability, the psychology to succeed and the perseverance but you will be in the 1%… Read more »

Wow! Someone who thinks like I do. Yes, Pete, agree, thousands of hours. And, scalping as most of these trade rooms advertise, is not for the newbies. It’s for the professionals who have computer power, deep pockets and lots of training. Yes, I believe trading is like any other profession, you have to put in the time and the work (and probably lose some of your money in the process). But losing money while you are learning rather than giving money to some huckster in a trade room is way better. At least you will learn to trust your own… Read more »

Hi Emmet, Here is the real story on the awards marketed on this companies website. Global Banking and Finance do exist as do give out these awards. However if you want an award from them you must pay them a substantial fee (up to $10k) to get the one you want. They call this FEE a marketing package that you are purchasing from them (they will advertise you on their website etc.) If you don’t buy the marketing package you don’t get the award. If they don’t have an award you want they will make it up for you as… Read more »

Folks…..
Education, in this business is another code word for SCAM.
If anyone is that good at trading, they would not be teaching , they would be doing …
A great “Good Will Hunting ” movie quote :
“You wasted $150,000 on an education you coulda got for a buck fifty in late charges at the public library.”

Peter
Guest
Anyone who paid this company for education (foundation or advanced course) and then deposited money with pipindex and lost part or all of this money would have a very strong case to sue the academyft to recover those losses. Why? They did not disclose that they are the owners of the broker (pipindex) or that that this same broker makes their money when the traders loses. (It is a blatant lie on the pipindex website that they are an STP broker that only makes commission) So, either the educators at academyft expect the traders to lose or are teaching them… Read more »

I took both the Foundation and UTP courses. I consider myself reasonably intelligent, so it caused me great shame to have been dazzled by this glistening turd. They make promises in class that they never intend to honor. And, later, when you ask pointed questions they ignore you. I followed their strategy well into several trends, accumulating nice profits and ignoring traditional “get the hell out” signals, only to watch my profits evaporate and turn into losses. You will not make money by following their system, because you are not supposed to. And you need considerable experience to be able… Read more »

I used to work in the offices next door to these guys before they moved – Pip Index and Academy FT are the same company (as well as a couple of other companys – Shaw Academy for one), get mail for them all the time now. Friendly enough, but the company was mostly sales staff as far as I could make out.

EDUCATIONHAHAHA

Exactly correct Peter, having had experience dealing with this company, it is an absolute scam where they are sending people to lose everything they have. The people who then lose what they have, after trying to trade without doing the advanced course then believe not doing the advanced programme has actually affected their trading and are offered the chance to do the course again and again. This discount is never ending, they have been harassing me with emails and calls for the last two years with the chance to redo the course, hoping you’ve lost some money in that time… Read more »

Only in the last 2 weeks has the brokerage PipIndex disclosed on their website that their owners also own academyft after 2 years of concealing this. They have also just recently disclosed this on their trading community website: communityft.com It would seem that the bulk of the clients that academyft send to pipindex (B Book Broker who make their money from client losses… AKA.. A Casino) are the $20 foundation course customers. So they teach these unfortunates what is a doji, how to identify support/resistance and some BS about counter retail trading (WTF?) and then send them to pipindex knowing… Read more »

But also they told everyone in the FTP that the Students only should Open a Demoaccount where ever they want.

Pete

Looks like these guys are now heavily marketing their $20 foundation trading course through their sister company Shaw Academy (not acdemyft) on deal sites (Groupon) to hook in more beginners.

The Shaw Academy marketing conveniently hides any connection to academyft even though it is the team in academyft who teach the Shaw Academy course.

TUT, TUT!!! From the immortal words of Joe Lewis “You can run but you can’t hide!”

Joao
Guest

Damn! I was so believing it… I did the first course for 14,90€ and learned some stuff (or at least I thought I did) and then paid 395€ for the UTP (ultimate trader programme). In fact they never tell you to trade with pipindex, but all the UTP course goes in that direction. Basically if you don’t trade with their platform and software you will not be using what you have learned in the course. I’m pissed now!

I just started the 10 course Foundation Trading Programme, since I was introduced by a friend there is no fee. Now after the 3rd personal call from my ‘mentor’ it’s starts to feel like a direct marketing campain. And a quick background check of my mentor confirms: someone with marketing background. So i’m well warned for follow up sales pitches allong the course. Thank you all for the thorough research!

Hi,

Im curious to know if you went ahead with the program?

Peter

This company refers all its clients to a broker called pipindex.com. It is worth investigating if there is a connection between the owners of academyft and pipindex, which seems likely. Pipindex claims to be an STP Broker (earns commission only) however it is a trading name of FINSA Europe which offers its white label partners (pipindex being a partner) a shared B book meaning it will split all client losses 50/50. Technically Pipindex can call itself an STP Broker, as it does not operate its own dealing desk internally as all it trades are managed on Finsa’s dealing desk. Why… Read more »

Thank you for your comments. Does this mean no one who has purchased the
Ultimate Trading Program been profitable at all? And your saying there is no ongoing
support even though they advertise that you will get lifetime support when you
purchase the Ultimate Trading Program? Their Foundation Trading Program is
very convincing but after reading the above comments I don’t want to be scammed,
so I guess its not worth buying.

I am doing the ultimate trading program, and for me its pretty good. You can choose

Anyone I know who did their foundation course was pushed to pipindex very hard with on-demand presentations of the pipindex platform running every week. It is very coincidental that as soon as it is disclosed online ( in the last few weeks) that both companies have the same owners and that pipindex is a… Read more »

Thanks for sharing your experience, Andres. I too completed their full course (foundation then UTP) and never, not once, did they try to talk me into using any specific broker. On the contrary, they did the opposite and refused to give me broker specific advice. I would welcome corresponding with you to find out more about how you have been able to profitably apply the system. I am still demo trading but plan to live trade in the next couple of weeks.

Just finished the Foundation Trading program. I heard PipIndex mentioned once in the first couple of sessions and never again. Until I started reading through the comments, I had forgotten it was mentioned. What I did hear was get a broker, any broker, and do your research (strategy and risk management) before trading. The instructor and support advisor both emphasized risk management and view trading as a secondary income…start small and grow with profits.

I typically do not get involved in the “Comment” section back and forth but your comment is completely contrary to my experience.

tom

Yeah, Pipindex not mentioned to you as they got rumbled before you started your course. (about 2/3 months ago) Do you actually believe that It’s was not mentioned because they suddenly grow a conscience and felt bad about teaching you how to trade and then sending you to their own brokerage where they make their money from your losses even though they have been doing it for the last 2/3 years. There PipIndex business would not survive unless there was a high failure rate from the clients they sent there. It is highly likely that either the FCA or the… Read more »

I’ll give 4/5 starts to their introductory course (Foundation Trading Programme). Good deal for beginners at least for the price I paid, nothing more nothing less. I’ve actually done it twice. First in autumn 2015 (5e through Groupon deal), and then re-took it as a refresher in January 2016 for free when they offered it for previous participants (who didn’t purchase the follow-up I imagine).

You have to take into consideration that Trading is a full time Job that takes total dedication and focus for many years. Any person that is trying to ”Teach” someone to trade full time is obviously NOT a full time Trader, most likely someone who knows the market very well but could not make it as a trader themselves. Its pretty obvious but most people fail to recognize this fact. Ask the ”Teacher” if they Trade full time for a living. If they do then get some verified trade records off them. If they cant supply this, run a mile.… Read more »

Hi Jon. So according to your argument, no one (good enough) would EVER be able to teach people how to trade? Because if you are good enough to be successful, you will be trading full time and won’t have the time to teach. And if you are not good enough to be a full time trader, people should not learn from you? So ALL trading teachers are bad, because they have the time to teach, meaning they are not good enough? Oi… Wonder how they learned the tricks of the trade?

The UTP is an end of day trend trading system for part time traders who can’t look at the charts. Effectively it’s combo indicator identifying higher highs, higher lows. Working of Daily’s, decent trends happen 25% or less of the time so expect to lose 1 out of 4 trades as it is impossible to know when a trend will start and finish. You are looking for a home run trend like crude oil recently that will wipe out your losing trades. A trend based system like this could wipe your account out before a home run trend develops.

Looks like the site is stagnant and not updated from 2014 except now it says 133k satisfied students. It seems like an international version of “topdogtrading”. 650 for the foundations then 1250 for ultimate. Maybe this review stopped the momentum of this scam thankfully. With that kind of approach it would be better as a legit school to teach passing series tests imo, rather than pretending to churn out “professional” traders.

It’s a scam, the only positive reviews are from employees… PipIndex/academyft/shaw academy will not be running in a year or two, by all means trade with them but you’ve had your warnings… Watch out for the 5 star essay under this post!
