30% Off the Online VTP Stage 1 Course for April 22

Fellow traders,
 
It’s fair to say that it’s been a rather eventful start to 2022.  
 
A few of you will know that I have for the last few years run a series of trader training courses under the banner of the Veterans Trader Project (VTP). Its initial aim was to provide an educated introduction into trading and financial markets for military veterans, which then expended to assisting all new traders in their journey. For April 2022 there will be a 30% discount on joining the VTP.
 
Over time the vision has grown into: turning veterans into traders, and turning traders into veterans of the financial markets.  Based on demand it has since expanded into a series of courses that cover: swing trading, intra-day trading, improving performance, and managing money for anyone looking to engage with financial markets.
 
On the VTP calls we had been talking about the likely events in Ukraine since November of last year, well before most people where interested. We were looking at how it would affect the global economy and where the threats may emerge from.
 
If you want a way to turn threats into opportunities then joining the VTP and completing Stage 1 of the course will help you do that.  The likelihood of recession in the next 18-24 months is growing – and this is a way to prepare for it. If you want to join the VTP and educate yourself then you can take Stage 1 for a 30% discount today on this link here: VTP Stage 1 Discount
 
There are more details below should you wish to read more. I hope you’ll join us on the journey.
 
Trade well,
 
Paul
 
Stage 1: Introduction to trading and financial markets
This is a stand-alone stage that will provide anyone with the basics of how to analyse, trade, manage-risk and improve as a trader.
Stage 2: An introduction to longer-term trading of FX, Indices and Commodities Markets
Stage 3: An introduction to short-term, intra-day trading of FX & Indices markets
Stage 4: On Managing Myself, Trader Performance, and becoming a Money Manager
Stage 5: Passing Trader Challenges;  becoming a funded trader (new for 2021)
 
All stages of the VTP leverage the acknowledged attributes of great traders and veterans alike: Process, Discipline and Self-Awareness

Having run the courses in classrooms in London for the last 3-4 years there has been a clear need to move with the times.
 
Here is an opportunity for you to join it at a sizeable discount of 30% off the normal price.
 
You can either simply buy the course at a reduced price of £208 as opposed to £297.
 
Alternatively you can join the VTP Community on a monthly basis.  Not only will this provide access to the course but will also offer other benefits, such as:
 
Weekly Monday Evening Group Coaching Call
Membership of the VTP Discord community
Every 4 months you’ll be provided access to the next Stage of the VTP
 
As mentioned above for April the online VTP there is whopping 30% discount off the standard price. 
 
You can access this price using this link: VTP ONLINE 30% OFF
 
If youd like to know more or have questions then feel free to drop me a note.
 
Equally if you know people who’d be interested in joining the online course and community then I would appreciate you forwarding them this link: https://bit.ly/2UjgsBk

VTP Stage 5 starts Jan 2022 – Group Coaching Towards Funded Trader Status

Finally, the VTP Stage 5 is ready for launch! Read on if you want to create the next evolution in your trading journey.


It’s a sad statement that most private retail traders are under-capitalised for their own goals and expectations. This leads towards over-sizing positions, or attempting to hit home-runs on every trade. It leads to a real “Hero-or-Zero” mentality, which rarely ends well for the trader as they chase outsized returns.


The Trading Industry has recognised this, hence the recent proliferation of Trader Funding companies or Prop-Shops, which look to offer funding for successful traders, in return for a fee, and passing a trading performance challenge.


These tests usually revolve around the trader generating a double-digit return in a month (or over several months) with the trader then being funded to a level dependent on their initial purchase. The funding increases as, and if, their performance continues.


To be fair, it’s a model that can really benefit some traders, if they are prepared for the challenge of a) delivering such returns and b) trading Other People’s Money (OPM).


However, far too many people ‘crash and burn’ because they are not prepared in any way for the challenge. Or they pass the initial challenge and then blow-up when trading other people’s funds at a size that they are not used to.


This is where the VTP Stage 5 comes into play. It’s a 12-week group coaching initiative that will help support traders overcome their funding challenges, and help prepare those who are considering taking such a challenge.


It will consist of 12 weekly Coaching Calls from January to March 2022 providing education, insight and support on winning your challenges, and developing your trading business. As always, it’ll be based on the foundations of the 4M’s of Trading.


You’ll also receive 3 x 30 minute 1-2-1 calls as part of the group in order to tighten up your own trading approach.
By the end of the 12-week sessions you’ll have:


– An understanding of the Prop Shop/ Trader Funding landscape and Business Models

– Greater understanding of whats required to both pass and maintain your funded account

– Insight into whether your own trading method will help or hinder you in a funded account world

– Greater knowledge of your own strengths and weaknesses as a trader and fund manager

– The creation of your own Personal Trading Plan to pass your challenge

– Learning how to manage yourself in order to maintain good performance

– Creation of your own Buddy-Buddy Trader Support Networks to help you in your journey

– Chance to meet and hear from traders who are already operating as Funded traders


As always there’s a cost implication. For the VTP Stage 5 the cost in future will be £750 to join. However as this is the first one, I am offering a discount of £255 to members of the VTP and London Trader Network. The cost will therefore be £495 for the 12 week course


Furthermore, the best student on the course will have their Trading Challenge funded by me, and also receive an additional 4 x 60 min coaching calls to help them (worth approx. £800).


The group will only be 4-8 people and it will be based on a first-come, first-served basis. If you want to talk to us about it then contact me at paul@FXTraderPaul.com to register your interest.
