Andres Pedraza

Founder and Director of Special FX Academy, Andres is now a full time trader, mentor, and teacher, not to mention an entrepreneur involved in multiple businesses. In the past, Andres has held director level positions at venerable trading exchanges including New York Stock Exchange, Euronext, and Fannie Mae.

He has been trading since the mid-90s, involved in stocks, options, and Forex. Having been introduced to Forex after extensive experience in technical and fundamental analysis in other instruments, Andres quickly realized the higher profit opportunities that could be had in the Forex market, given its higher leverage, and that this was accompanied by a higher risk if not managed properly.

Also being a bit appalled at the course offerings available to aspiring Forex traders, he wrote a book to provide the basics of Forex Trading without the student having to pay $5,000 and more for an entry level course with dubious information, and even more dubious results. The majority of courses on the market overcharge, overpromise, and underdeliver, becoming a steady moneymaker for the companies running these courses as their students are led into more and more of them, each promising to be the “ultimate” one. “Ultimate” until next week’s course, that is, that promises to out-ultimate all the prior ones. Andres’s book, Making It in the Forex Market, includes everything a beginner needs to know in order to start trading this market safely and effectively.

He then founded Special FX Academy with the intention of providing aspiring traders with a complete curriculum of everything needed to succeed in the Forex Market, along with the promise of Lifetime Enrollment for one fee. Any new courses, “ultimate” or otherwise, will be provided to students at no additional charge. Traders should make money trading, and not by taking every last penny from aspiring traders under the pretense of helping them.
