I have done all my due diligence, I am happy about Futex and the trainers. BUT IS IT WORTH ALL THE MONEY?
I do not want this thread to become a "why don't you teach yourself for free", Because I have done all that, and have read all that on other posts! What I really need is TRADING ADVICE from TRADERS.

Please post only if you have been Trained by Futex - I would like to know from you if they were any good? They said they have trained 100 traders hands on since 2001 and have 70 people trading Prop for them today. My last due diligence is from those who have been at FUTEX or are there now.

How was it? Would you spent between 2k and 7k for the privelidge?

Having spent time with the guys at Woking, and in London, I was told 90% of the office went thru the training school. After speaking to some traders I had no reason to think this was not true. Not everyone made it though, so be careful, doing the course does not guarantee success. However, ASK TO VISIT before spending any money. If you are not happy do not pay. If you like what you find and are willing to give it a serious bash I think this can be a good route for an inexperienced person.

I am on their training course now as part of the March intake, so I can give you a little insight; I firmly believe that moving to Woking for this opportunity is the best decision I ever made, hands down. It will take time and dedication, and it might not be a smooth ride to the top, but the facilities and training I am receiving will get me there exponentially quicker than teaching myself; I have learned more in 3 weeks than I knew from 6 months of my own research, including things that I would never have been able to discover without being in the presence of other traders all day, every day.

In short, I would absolutely recommend it. Good luck with whatever you decide on.

I have been at Futex for a couple of years. If you want to make a career of trading you need the best set up and support and you will get this from Futex. There are no golden tickets or holy grails in trading but the training at Futex is as good as you will find.

Your trading success is down to you as an individual and most people don't make it, but by being with Futex you are giving yourself the best chance you can.

Does that include those who take the Futex training ? Also which training did you take as I understand there are two options ?

they have classroom and online trading - both of which include time on the trading floor. I think it is the time on the trading floor that is the best part of it. Being in amongst "real" traders.

i am a bit confused by their website: they have a tab "futex academy" and a tab "career opportunities". on the career site, it is stated that with a good CV and successful assessment center, you can do the trading floor training there. however, under the tab "futex academy", it is stated that trading floor training costs 7500GBP. can someone confirm the "career opportunities" that you need to go through an assessment center for, are actually super-expensive courses ?
the whle thing looks like a scam to me, just look at the pictures of the surfing babe and the luxury car.......

Based on previous board posts, it would seem If you dont make the grade for the 'career opportunities' you can pay for the same level of training yourself.

Seems like they get hundreds of applicants and they only chose a few.. but if you dont get chosen but still want it bad enough you can pay for the training and back yourself...
