About The Academy Of Financial Trading

With our local and global presence, the Academy of Financial Trading is the world leader in financial trading education. We are committed to both excellence in teaching and support, enhancing the learning experience of each individual trader. We provide cutting edge education, administered in a flexible nature. We offer a unique insight as to why traders all too often lose, and how, by working together, we can combat this.

The Academy of Financial Trading was born out of necessity rather than design. Put simply, for too long people have been paying too much for trading education and getting too little. At AcademyFT we believe that when you start with a great education, great things can happen. We are passionate in providing innovative, practical, affordable education and in assisting all traders on a one to one level to ensure that each course is tailored to suit their individual needs.

Today, AcademyFT continues to build on successes - thanks to our clear vision, our rigorously maintained values and, above all, our people. We encourage independence of thought where staff and traders are nurtured as individuals, and are encouraged to achieve their full potential.

In all we do, we are always learning, always improving, always pushing further, and always demanding higher standards; keeping the Academy of Financial Trading at the forefront of trading education. By doing this we leverage our knowledge and expertise on a worldwide platform, providing all attendees with a comprehensive toolkit to begin a successful trading career.



The level of support we offer all our attendees is the foundation of our success and something we are extremely proud of. We are dedicated to helping all traders, be they professional or inexperienced, grow and develop their skills. We greatly enjoy what we do and believe all traders should. We recognise how isolating trading can be and strive to eradicate this by offering one to one support to all attendees at the Academy of Financial Trading. Alongside our educators, our support team are equally as passionate about trading and have a desire to instil this passion in all attendees. The support is delivered locally by people who care about each individual’s success. We thrive on witnessing continual improvements made by our attendees and as such assist and encourage all attendees to strive for more, define new goals and succeed with new challenges. The AcademyFT is here to offer our support every step of the way; no question is too big or too small to ask.


The Academy of Financial Trading conducts live lessons all over the world, catering for all time zones and local markets. We strive to provide live lessons at times that are convenient for traders and additionally have a dedicated support team for each local market to ensure all attendees receive the highest quality support and guidance. No matter where you are from we aim to provide practical, accessible, effective education.


The collective experience of the Founders and Educators gives the Academy of Financial Trading the ability to isolate, compartmentalise and compress some of the most important and frequently overlooked areas of trading and develop upon those to educate the individual trader to the highest standard. Often times the best traders cannot teach and the educators have not or do not trade profitably. The Academy of Financial Trading has recognised this niche that exists and the demand from traders for real traders with institutional and individual trading experience, who have genuinely educated countless traders to the highest standard.


The AcademyFT believes in transparency and integrity above all else. We do not sell fantasies nor do we make any predictions. We chose not to insult our own intelligence or that of our attendees. We do not believe it is the best approach to teach new traders to predict financial markets with regard to both price and time. Issues occur in trading, as in regular life, which cannot be foreseen. Those events in trading may revolve around natural disasters or other such phenomena, acts of aggression between nations, political or financial developments and scandals. These events cannot be predicted with any level of certainty and the ensuing opportunities are missed entirely by most other trading styles or worse still entered so much later after the fact as to result in losses as opposed to profit. That is not the case for Technical Analysts as we are not on the side-lines asking why. We see, accept and trade accordingly. We manage each individual trade outcome and our overall portfolio in such a way as to maximise profits in the long term based on solid mathematical principles.



The Academy of Financial Trading firmly believes that online education is the perfect solution for those who want to up skill and develop without compromising work, family life and other commitments. The days of travelling long distance, at great expense, to sit in a class room are becoming a distant memory for students of the Academy of Financial Trading. More importantly the eradication of this ‘down time’ means you have far more time for what matters to you, your life, your dreams, your goals and that is one of our core objectives. We believe your studies should fit into your lifestyle not the other way around. To accommodate even the most hectic lifestyles we provide access to recordings of all live lessons for repeat viewing 24/7. These lessons can be accessed by laptop, pc, mobile device or tablet.


Awarded Best Online Trading Educator 2012 and 2013, we are a world leader in providing online trading education. You can rest assured that no matter where you live, we will keep you connected to your future ambitions. More and more people, from all walks of life are using trading as a source of secondary income. Our students come from a range of backgrounds; from professional traders with vast experience to complete beginners with little or no experience. We are vastly experienced at catering for all levels. We at the Academy of Financial Trading understand that every student has a unique style of learning that works for them. Live lessons allow for interaction between attendees and educators while recordings ensures that each lesson or subject matter is completely understood before moving on to the next, which in turn, typically results in higher overall results compared to classroom learning.


Our learning resources are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. We provide a comprehensive online glossary to assist you with your education. In addition to this throughout the course we provide weekly self-assessments to ensure full confidence in all headings. You can access recordings of live lessons for repeat viewing, review assessments, and also discuss questions and chat with fellow students at any time through our online community.
