“Find out if Neerav Vadera’s G7FX education programme is the right one for you.”
With how lucrative trading can be, it’s no surprise that trading education courses are everywhere online. There are thousands and thousands on offer, each promising to teach everyone the best trading strategies for the biggest profits.
Of course, so much variety makes it hard to decide which course to invest in. Neerav said, “You need to consider your budget, free time, level of motivation, and how far you want to take your trading career. ‘Do you want to trade full-time or as a side hustle?’ You need to find the course that best suits your needs and goals so that you can spend your money the most efficiently.”
This article takes a look at one of the training programmes available: the G7FX Professional Trading Education programme. Go in-depth on its content, format, and pricing to determine if the course is “right for you.”
What is it?
G7FX is an educational programme covering all facets of trading. It’s run by ex-Barclays trader Neerav Vadera (more commonly called NV), who has been a private trader for over ten years.
According to G7FX’s website, the course provides “the same training programme offered by the very best institutions in the world.” NV states that his course uses the same teaching methods he was taught while working for Barclays.
Who’s it for?
G7FX has two main courses: Foundation and Pro.
As the name suggests, the Foundation course covers the fundamentals of trading. NV explains that it is suitable for both complete beginners and those interested in expanding their existing knowledge. It goes over aspects like different market types and why prices fluctuate.
The Pro course is intended for more experienced traders. It teaches advanced volume analysis, footprint charts, VWAP, and Cumulative Delta, among others. NV recommends only taking the Pro course after taking the Foundation.
As the website mentions, the programme is designed for people dedicated to making trading their full-time career. Its ultimate goal is to give people the knowledge they need to leave their current job and become a private trader professionally.
What does each course teach?
The Foundation course contains over thirteen hours of video content.
The first step in the course is learning how to build a detailed business plan and timetable. This means examining different institutions and learning how to adapt one’s trading towards them.
Next, NV deconstructs the framework of the market and explains what drives its movements. He focuses on supply and demand and how certain factors influence price fluctuations.
Lastly, NV introduces DOMs and spells out how to read an institutional order flow on one. He provides practical exercises to do as a way of preparing for the Pro course.
The Pro course has over forty hours of video content.
As expected, it focuses on more advanced strategies. NV pivots away from the DOM and towards the charts, guiding members through a footprint chart, examining volume traffic, and finally taking the VWAP into account.
He advises students to spend at least three months going through each course.
What else is included?
Included with the Foundation course is a free custom-built DOM worth over £1,000. The Pro course comes with a professional footprint worth over £1,250.
In addition to the main courses, G7FX students can access a members-only blog. The blog is frequently updated with new educational content and lets readers see trading reports from other members.
Members can also receive one-on-one support from NV, who will answer any course-related or technical queries they may have.
What makes it different?
On his website, NV asserts that he is the only trading educator with an institutional background who can prove (with independently verified evidence) that he trades for a living.
His G7FX Giving scheme springs from this: until a teacher with an institutional background that matches or exceeds his own is found, he donates £1,000 a month to charity. The person who finds said teacher will receive £25,000, but the money has remained unclaimed so far.
Unlike those found in other online courses, NV explains, the strategies he teaches are the same as those taught in world-class trading firms. He created his programme using his knowledge working for Barclays Investment Bank and later refined it while trading privately.
Similarly, he claims the format of his programme mirrors those used by the most prominent trading institutions. In turn, students are encouraged to only trade with simulated money for the duration of the programme, minimising risk a priority.
How much does it cost?
Typically, the Pro and Foundation course bundle comes to £1,298. However, it’s currently at a £300 discount, meaning the total price is £998 or three monthly instalments of £349.
