Course will help you

Here is a short 2 minute video telling you a little more about the course, why I offer the training, and what you can expect to learn.

This training will help you ...

In this course, Safdar Alam will help you learn about the financial markets, and how to learn to trade with confidence.

Online trading is now becoming a very popular concept, as people are now more interested in opportunities to earn an income online. The motivation may be to supplement your income, or be more in control of your time and finances. With fintech development, it is now easier than ever to try out trading and see if this activity can be suitable for you.

However, trading is not for everyone - those who jump in without adequate preparation will find that it is much easier to lose money than to make profit. Indeed, many brokers report that 70%-80% of the clients lose money.

That is why I designed this course - to provide a structured and educated way for people to enter the trading market with confidence. As well as the difficulties posed by the markets themselves, online trading has, unfortunately, become a very popular area for scams and those trying to take your money dishonestly.

With my reputation in the financial markets built on integrity, working for some of the largest investment banks in the world, my commitment to you is total - I confidently stake my reputation on the quality of training and services I will provide for you.

Be careful of those making promises!

I make no financial promises at all

No get rich quick schemes

No "double your money" within a week, or a month, or any time frame

No secret signals that will make you a millionaire

I will never request any money from you (apart from the cost of registering the course)

The only promises I make are as follows:

I will teach you how the markets work

I will show you how to analyse the markets, with no indicators, based on a deep understanding of the dynamics of the markets and also human psychology that drives the market movements in price

You will have to study and work quite hard to learn the basics!

You will have to spend time practicing and implementing what you learn

It will take you several months to learn basic competence in the markets

And I will be here to train and guide you along the way



Upon registering, you will have immediate access to a course of 10 videos that will introduce the financial markets and aspects fo trading.

The course is delivered by a further series of training videos covering all the key topics outlined below. This enables you to  progress at  your own pace to consolidate your understanding.

You will also be able to attend live Webinars to ask any questions on the course, and to improve your learning and understanding of any topics.

In addition, you will have access to a forum of other attendees, where you can discuss ideas, and interact on a daily basis.

"Personally I think so far the trading course is excellent. I can easily understand the videos that you provide. I learned a lot about how to trade and how the smart money operates and manipulates on the major key levels. Getting knowledge about ways to take advantage of the market structure during trading without involving too much risk. Also learning how to look for the setup on lower time frame according to major trend in the market." Danial

"The videos and webinars on trading were very interesting and informative. Being a finance person myself I thought they will be about something I already know, but they introduced me to a whole new dimension. The concepts on how the market works, how it reacts, how to read the charts, when should we look for trades and most importantly when not to were amazing. Now I crave to know even more." M Aslam

"Though I know what trading is, I had no idea what it's like to trade. With no prior knowledge, I would say the first 10 basic lectures that you shared are quite helpful for me to be able to follow what you were explaining during the webinar. I'm far from being able to start trading but after the course, I would say I have grasped the idea on the structure of strategical trading, how expert sees the graph, and I believe if I were to go all out and start trading, with this foundation I am able to find things that I need to know and start from there." S. Shariff

"In terms of structure, trendlines, and identifying key levels, your explanation is very clear and easily understood

Your webinars definitely helped me enhanced initial understanding from the videos." Kay


"...the basic thing I have learned is how to read a chart. I was completely blind about trading and about the green and red charts. Other than that, what you taught us so far, is really helpful to understand more about the market itself. And also, I really appreciate on how you deliver this course, because I can understand what you said completely, such as without using difficult term to understand, that really helps me a lot..." N

"I think you are doing a great job teaching and explaining trading to us. Surely i still need to learn more but i think you help me so much in trying to understand introduction to trading considering i have zero knowledge before. Your explanation are compact with graph and all. I also took notes during all session and revise it on my own. Your videos are all helpfull. I have nothing much to say but you did an excellent job and also thank you."  NS Mohamed

  • I have never traded before, will this course be too advanced for me?"
    Not at all. You will have a series of 10 introductory videos to review to help you, before you review the video training course. Everything is explained in a clear manner without jargon. You can ask questions at any time in the trader's forum, or during the webinars.
  • I have traded before, will this course be too basic for me?"
    If you trade and consistently make profits, and manage your risk, then you are doing well! However, in my experience it is possible to be trading for several years without a clear approach, a defined strategy and being confused by all the conflicting methods. This course will assist you in all these areas,
  • What if this course is just not for me, can I get a refund?"
    Upon registering, you will have access to all the course material. As such, providing a refund is a difficult matter. However, if you have any concerns, please feel free to contact me before registering for the course. If, after registering, you still feel the course is not for you, I am happy to discuss this with you and make suitable arrangements.
  • I am not sure if I should do Level 1 first - is it too basic?
    Not at all. During Level 1, we cover a lot of areas, and some are quite difficult to grasp and understand well. Although we will still cover a lot of technical areas in Level 2, there is additional focus on strategy and management, which are vital areas to master in order to become a competent trader.
  • Do you offer 1:1 mentoring?
    Yes, this can be arranged after a brief consultation. Any mentoring will not be included in the basic cost of this course.Mentoring details are on our Discord Server, please contact me for details.
  • After reviewing the course videos, if I still have questions, can I ask you?"
    Of course! This is why each level includes 2 live webinars to cover all the questions you have. In addition, I am very responsive in the traders forum. This is where you will actually learn a lot about how to put the training into practice in your trading activities.
