By Now You Probably Have Some Questions about How to Start Trading.
Here are the answers to our most Frequently Asked Questions:
Should I Learn Forex Trading? Is Forex Trading Suitable for all Investors?
There are many reasons why Trading the Foreign Exchange Market is a good option for many of those looking to trade.
You can be a Forex Trader in your spare time – The Forex market is open 24 hours a day 5 days a week and you don’t to be an expert in financial services to be a successful at forex trading.
It is the most liquid market on the planet – you are able to enter and exit trades quickly to take advantage of regular price fluctuations.
Those “in the know” understand that foreign exchange or forex trading is one of the most lucrative financial markets for savvy traders.
Forex has the most money traded in it – around $5 Trillion US per day – most of which is by large institutions, such as banks, hedge funds and fund managers – if there was no money to be made on the forex market, would these profit-focused organisations be doing it?
If you approach currency trading as the business it is, and apply proven profit making strategies, with a level head, you can create a consistent income forex trading on the currency markets.
Our Coaches have been helping forex traders create financial freedom for more than 12 years, many of which are new traders as they get started trading financial products.
Trading leveraged financial products, such as forex, is not for everyone – your losses are leveraged, as well as your profits! If you have any concerns, you should seek the advice of a qualified financial advisor, so that your personal circumstances can be considered before undertaking any form of leveraged investing, including forex trading.
I have never traded the forex market before. How quickly can I make money?
Forex Trading profitably is not a Get Rich Quick Scheme… Like any new enterprise, it takes time and effort to develop the skills and structures to trade the forex market profitably on your live trading account.
Be realistic in your expectations about the time and effort from the time you start trading until you are profitable.
The key to consistency in trading the foreign exchange profitably is that it is one of the strongest financial products for focused traders and should be traded with care and an emphasis on long term positive markets. Trading all financial products should tailored strategies that take advantage of their unique strengths and risks.
The LIFT Investor Trader 4 Step Program has been developed to guide new Traders and experienced Traders to develop the skills, experience and mindset it takes to make consistent profit from Trading in the most achievable time frame.
LIFT Investor Traders are regularly achieving consistently profitable live trades on the foreign exchange market within 4 to 6 weeks of starting this program. Some take shorter and others longer, depending on the their effort and willingness to be coached by our experienced coaches.
Do I have to invest a lot of money trading forex to learn?
An investment of money and time is generally required to start any profit-focused business.
Your education, knowledge of the trading strategies and business development is the most important investment.
Learning from people who have a proven track record of helping people achieve profits from forex trading, will help you develop the skills you need to succeed, whilst avoiding the pitfalls of making costly mistakes, such as losing large amounts of money on unproven methods or dealing with self-sabotaging limiting beliefs.
Your Trading Coach will help you develop a consistent high return profit making business through the use of demo accounts, and staged progress into live and compounding, as you achieve consistently positive returns in your trading account.
The first live trade you place will only cost $100 US and we have helped new Traders build large incomes from just that one investment.
Following a proven plan, accepting coaching from those who have helped others achieve success and approaching Trading like the business it is, will help you achieve the best return on your investment.
Can I succeed as a Forex Market Trader?
That’s a great question… and the Great News is that the answer is completely in your hands.
The Trading Coach International is committed to providing our members with the most comprehensive education and tools our members need to make consistent growing profits from Forex Trading in their trading journey.
It is up to the individual Trader as to whether they will follow the coaching as they get started to achieve their desired results and grow their trading account.
Patience, consistency, the willingness to accept coaching and the commitment to achieving their financial goals are the keys to success in a Trading Business Venture, not a person’s background or even a formal financial services education.
People in our LIFT Investor Trader 4 Step Program who are achieving success on a daily basis have diverse backgrounds – from takeaway shop workers to lawyers, chiropractors to truck drivers, builders, nurses, at home parents, nurses, professional traders, real estate agents, engineers and students… the list goes on.
Our coaches will support you and help you be the best, most profitable trader that YOU can be, taking into account your learning style, your forex trading style, your strengths and your goals.
Do I have to be a Computer Genius to Trade?
A basic ability to use a computer is needed to be able to open and read the trading charts and place trades using either fundamental analysis or technical analysis.
Generally, if you are able to receive and answer emails, surf the web and do the basics, you should be fine as you get started. Your skills will develop with the more technical analysis you undertake, practice buying and selling and take advantage of coaching events.
Our coaches are very skilled at helping members learn forex trading strategies and get up and running and they can even help you install and set up your charts.
What pairs can I trade using your Trading Method?
We always suggest trading the Major Currency Pairs, as they have the largest traded daily range and tend to move more predictably. They are also the pairs most traded by traders working for financial services using both technical analysis and fundamental analysis.
Having said this, our LIFT Trading Method can be used to trade any currency pair, provided you understand the potential risk of loss associated with the more exotic financial markets.
Do you employ strong Risk Management Strategies?
15 + years as an Investor and Trader has shown me that there is no Reward without Risk, but Risk can be Balanced so that you can achieve the best return for the Level of Risk of Loss that suits your personal risk profile.
The LIFT Investor Trader 4 Step Program teaches how to Effectively BALANCE Risk and Reward to Protect Your Capital, whilst Maximising Your Profit using proven forex trading strategies from the time you start trading your demo account until you have a healthy growing trading account.
Education and Mindset are the Strongest Risk Management Structures for Trading Success; but having a High Probability Trading Method that is proven effective and that has Strong Stop Loss Rules, is also very important.
There are several Active and Passive Risk Management measures that are built into LIFT Investor Trader and the LIFT Trading Method. We would love to explain more about them in one of our Live Workshop Preview Events. These events are suitable for all investors, whether they are new traders or if they are experienced forex traders looking to improve their trading style.
What broker or trading platform do I need to use?
Using a legitimate, registered and ASIC (in Australia) Approved Broker experienced in leveraged financial services and markets is our first recommendation when trading the financial markets.
Our Trading Method does use a non-standard indicator and specific time frame charts. Some of our Traders use Metatrader MT4 platform, but most of our forex traders use the Think Trader pltform.
The broker Think Markets has these charts available exclusively to their clients.
The Trading Coach International has no negotiated favourable terms including fast track application process, tight pip spreads and access to extra services with Think Markets.

Ultimately, it is your choice and you should always choose the Broker with the service and support that best suits your personal needs.
Do I have to watch the charts all day or can I make money in short timeframes?
Our Traders usually trade around the major Market Open and Close Times and learn to Take Profit when the Market gives it, then once they’ve made their money, they can enjoy their life with their family, friends and following their passion.
Initially you will send more time learning the ins and outs of forex trading, understanding the foreign exchange market and practising the LIFT Forex Trading Strategies as well as watching the many videos in our Members area covering all aspects of how LIFT forex traders start trading, navigate the challenges of trading the financial markets and establish their profitable trading business.
How long do New Traders take to learn your system effectively?
We have a 4 Step Process where New LIFT Traders are guided through establishing their Forex Trading Business, Learning the Trading Method, Practicing in a simulated demo account environment using a demo account, proving they can trade profitably, then trading live with the view to making profit.
Normally this is a 2 to 3 month process. Your focus is about taking the time to learn forex and developing the skills trading forex to be consistenty profitable – there is no benefit in rushing into real life trading account trades without having built a strong foundation. The best approach, we’ve found, is to focus on consistency, then profit will follow.
Traders are support throughout the whole process, guided to see areas to improve and worked with to develop strategies to achieve consistent success.
As mentioned before, Your Commitment to Achieving Your Goals will Determine Your Success. We are here to educate, support and coach you through the process.

What percentage of your Traders do not succeed and why?
We’re committed to all of our Traders achieving their version of ”Success”. Some people join our Program to make a million dollars from forex trading or create a financial legacy for their family and others just want to earn enough so that they don’t have to take a second job or so that they can afford to send their kids to a better school or to go on nicer holidays.
By sitting down with our Traders as they start their Trading Business and getting to know their core values, their goals and what inspires and motivates them, we, as coaches, are better able to help develop trading plans, action plans and guide our members to achieve their goals.
Every LIFT Investor Trader is different and one of our strengths is that we take an individual approach with each of our Traders.
We don’t tell you what “Successful” is – you tell us what Success is To You.
Sometimes Traders have life get in the way – illness, change in job, new opportunities come up… Our Traders know that we are there to support them at all steps of the way to their goals.
If a Trader needs to take a break from trading, they know we are just a phone call away when they want to get back on track.
Approximately 80% of our Traders are currently Actively Trading and engaged in the LIFT Investor Trader 4 Step Program. The remaining 20% are always welcome to recommence if and when their priorities change.
What if I get negative trades?
No Trader is 100% perfect. There is no such thing as a 100% Profitable Trading Method.
Negative Trades are actually necessary if you want to improve your skills. The goal is to learn from any mistakes you make and every negative trades you make.
To have a REALISTIC approach to trading, you must expect to have some negative trades.
In the LIFT Investor Trader Program, we guide our Traders through each negative trade and one of our most reinforced Coaching Rules is:
“If you make 2 negative trades in a row, you contact your coach and ask them to review those trades to see if you missed anything BEFORE you take the next trade”
By starting your trading business in a Demo account, following the LIFT Trading Method and asking for coaching when you have negative trades, you are LEARNING before you Lose real money.
To progress from Step 2 – Demo Trading to Step 3 Live Trading (with $150 money in the trade) in the LIFT Investor Trader Program, you MUST have completed 20 Demo Trades with at least 70% positive results.
Then Before you compound profits or consider increasing your investment size, you MUST have completed 20 Live $150 Trades with at least 70% positive results.
Plan to Use your Negative Trades to Grow Your Profits!
If I become a LIFT Investor or LIFT Trader and decide not to pursue trading, can I get a refund?
Becoming an Investor or a Trader is not for everyone. It takes a time, money and effort commitment to achieve profit from trading.
We suggest that you seriously consider whether trading is a valid option for you, based upon your personal circumstances before joining this or any other investing or trading program, course or opening a trading account.
Seek indpendent financial advice before you take any action.
As this program is fulfilled with the receipt of your training materials and your access to coaching and education workshops, we are unable to offer a refund if you change your mind at a later stage.

We cannot stress this enough… If you have ANY concerns about the suitability of this program, please DO NOT lodge an application.
What if I can’t attend one of your live information events or webinars?

If you’re not available to attend one of our live events or webinars, we can arrange for one of our Currency Trading Business Specialists to call you and discuss our program and whether it may be a good fit for you and the forex trading goals that you want to achieve.
Please visit our Contact Us Page to let us know that you want a Specialist to contact you.
If you can make money from trading, why do you teach others?
Another Great Question, and one which I am asked All The Time! Some people think that all Traders are self-absorbed and greedy. That’s a stereotype and definitely not always true. Sure, some Forex Traders are, just like some people in any other profession.
Also, that presupposes that you can only do one OR the other (be successful OR teach other people) – this is often a limiting belief.
As professional traders and coaches, we want to show people that you can have everything that you want and are willing to work for.
Personally, we have “selfless” and “selfish” reasons for teaching people how to trade… It’s true that Forex Trading can be lonely and isolating for most new traders. When we first started trading 16 years ago, we had no support, coach or community to turn to when things went “pear-shaped”.
As we started achieving profit, we started sharing ideas and trading strategies with traders that we would meet and see the benefits they achieved from the coaching and support.
We believe that Trading is a great income opportunity for so many people, that not sharing it would be selfish and we have an obligation to share what we know. The membership fee is cost of entry to demonstrate commitment by the member to learn, but also supports the growth of the program so that we can reach more people.
Also, our Coaches find that, when you coach someone, you really need to know your Forex Trading Strategy inside out and it encourages us to take our own knowledge to the next level.
On top of this, over the years we’ve found that there are some selfish people out there who promise the world to new traders, but fail to deliver. We wanted to give people a REAL SOLUTION to creating consistent Profit From Forex Trading.
The selfish reasons? Well, we love working with people and that is a reward… Also the more people who use a paticular trading method and the more money that goes into the Market using a particular strategy, the stronger that strategy becomes and the more predictable and profitable the trades… More Traders trading successfully using the LIFT Method equals More Profit for all of the Traders who use it (including us)!
Do I need to Pay Tax on Money I make as a Trader?
Always seek professional advice from a registered Tax Agent.
Generally, any income that you earn in Australia; other than from a hobby, is considered income for Income Tax purposes.
You should discuss this with your accountant – if you are running a trading business – as all of our LIFT Investor Traders do, they declare all the income and claim all the deductions for expenses for that trading business – including the cost of their investment in LIFT Investor Trader and other education and business expenses.
Always seek professional advice from a registered Tax Agent as to whether the income from trading forex, income from investing in financial products and deductions from expenses for financial services is taxable in your country of residence
