Elite Trader


Introduction to the Elite Trader Program

The Elite Trader Program is a Nine Step process to Success with any Financial Instrument or any form of Investing.  Because the psychology is the same across the board.  And the principles are the same, you make a plan, you test it and you stick to it…

For the purpose of this course we will use the FOREX market as our financial instruments of choice.

There are three levels to the Elite Trader Program and these are the:

Foundation Level – You cannot expect to build anything lasting unless you have built a strong foundation.

Transformation Level – This is we as coaches will see what we call popcorn moments.  This is where you will have your aha moments and everything will start coming together and making sense.

Mastery Level – This is where we will open your eyes as to what is truly possible with any strategy you design, and you will.  Because in this level you will understand how to develop a complete strategy that suits you and your objectives.



The following pages will give you a brief description of each step and its importance in terms of the bigger picture. Imagine it in this way; The Elite Trader is the finished 1000-piece picture puzzle, and when you arrive to us, you are the bag with the puzzle pieces in…

Everyone is different, which is represented by how pieces are in your bag.  You will note as we go along that if you are missing pieces they are technical pieces.  And Andres will give you those pieces as we go along.  You all have the psychology pieces in the bag you just don’t know the picture that you are trying to create YET!

With Callum’s guidance you will create your big picture and then start to put the right pieces in the right place.  This is where most of your time will be taken, make no bones about it. It will take effort and persistence on your part.  But as in trading the rewards can be very high.

“How you do A thing, is how you will do EVERYTHING!”


Step 1. Awareness

Psychology is about changing who you are now into who you want to be… simply put.

And the first step to change or any kind of learning is awareness.  First you become aware that you need to change.  Then you will become aware that you can change.  The rest is up to you.  It is you that will have to become aware of who you are now, who you want to become, how you form the world around you, and does this serve you well…

The Elite Trader Program  will introduce you to NLP and it’s uses, we will show you tools and techniques to rid yourself of limiting beliefs, negative emotions, inner conflict and negative thoughts…

We will show you how you see the world through your filters and how that affects your life and your trading.  You will finally understand why two traders can look at the same chart at yet have two opposing theories.

You are going to see that the market is just a big mirror.  How you play at life is how you will play in the market.  You will just exaggerate X10 in the market.  Greedy in life, super greedy in the market.  Fearful in life, constantly looking over your shoulder in the market.  Lacking confidence in life, forever changing your mind in the market… This list is ENDLESS!

And you will finally become aware that trading is not about the system or strategy, it’s about you…

Finally, you will be asked “Are you committed?” … Because only losers try…

And we do all of this because…

“What is necessary to change a person, is to change their AWARENESS of THEMSELVES.”  – Abraham Maslow


Step 2. Define Your Destination

How can you develop a Trading Strategy if you don’t know it’s objectives?…   It’s like saying “I’m going to start a company” … and then leaving it there and expecting to be a millionaire by the end of the year…

Don’t laugh you are all doing it with your trading.

In order to know the objectives of your  Elite Trading strategy, you must know your own objectives, your goals,dreams or desires…

Once you know your objectives you can build your strategy to accomplish your objectives.  While keeping in line with your core values, we walk you through a tried and tested process that has been tweaked purposely for our clients to achieve their successes… In all areas of their LIFE… not just in Trading.

And we do all of this because…

“A Goal without a PLAN is just a wish”


Step 3. Improve Your Mindset to that of an Elite Trader

This is the biggest step in the Elite Trader Program and for good reason… This is where the magic happens if you’re prepared to be open to it.  This all about ridding yourself of the old, tired and completely useless beliefs and habits that have been holding you back…

Special FX Academy will never leave you hanging though, we will help you to install NEW empowering beliefs that align with what you are aiming to achieve in life and as an Elite Trader.

You will start with the principles of success, moving into the Art of Influence. We are encouraging you to become the best you can be.  It’s here that you will start to feel resistance to all the change that together we are implementing in your life.

Once here we will have to do some housework to declutter your environments thus freeing the way forward and making room for those new EMPOWERING beliefs…

We will teach you how to respect and use money properly.  How to make better use of your time.  We will show you exactly how stress affects your trading and greatly reduces your life span.

You will also implement the changes required to put an end to all the bad stress and anxiety.

And we do all of this because…

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer


Step 4. Core Skills

Let’s either start or start again with the basics of Trading…

Although you think you know how to draw a trend line did you know that there are lots of different ways and rules to drawing trend lines?

Same goes for support and resistance, there is elements of discretion. Hence the term discretionary trader.  Decision-based trading, you decide what trades to take based on fundamental market conditions.

You may prefer to be a systems trader taking trades based solely on a systems signals, regardless of current fundamental market conditions…

You will be given everything you need to follow a simple strategy we have designed to take you through the TRANSFORMATIONAL Level.

It’s here where you will learn to properly back test and forward test (paper trade).  And you will learn the importance of why and how it will help you in the later stages use position sizing to its maximum benefit.  As an Elite Trader you will be taught to take as much out of the market when you are right, and give back as little as is required to play the game.

And we do all of this because…

“It is possible to fly without motors, but not without knowledge and skill.” -Wilbur Wright


Step 5. Discipline


Disciplined Trader


Discipline is a 9-step process itself that will greatly improve your success in life and trading.  You have to be disciplined to be an Elite Trader.   And it is only Elite Traders that can consistently take money out of the market year after year, with no burnout or stress.

And we do all of this because…

“Your level of Success is determined by your level of discipline and perseverance.”


Step 6. Consistency

Everything we have done up to this step, has been preparing YOU and getting YOU primed to complete this step…

Miss any prior step and I guarantee you will continue to fail here… Because without the mindset and discipline of an Elite Trader consistency in the market will be all but impossible.

The idea is simple and so is the series of challenges we set you.  All the challenges will be completed with the same simple strategy we have given you.

Only once you have completed this step fully, will you move onto the mastery level.

And we do ALL of this because…

“It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, it’s what we do consistently.” -Tony Robbins


Step 7. The Toolbox

You don’t put up a painting with a screwdriver or a pick axe.  No… There are specific tools for specific jobs.  You use a hammer and nail.  If you like to own all the tools and completely knock a job out the park you may use laser levels and tapes to make sure that picture is spot on and symmetrical.

Same goes for trading, there is a specific tool for specific jobs and there are tools with all the bells and whistles… Made only for an Elite Trader to handle…

We will show you what we know and have tested ourselves, of which there are many.  And we will show you how to learn about any new one you like the look of.

Because this is where YOU will start to formulate how YOU want your charts to look.  And the tools you want to aid you in your trading.

And we do all of this because…

“Simplicity and Complexity need each other.” – John Maeda


Step 8. Creative Design

The idea of this may seem a little daunting at present (because you are working with your old beliefs)…

When you get to this stage in our course, you will be buzzing with ideas.  You will be 90% Elite Trader.  Your subconscious will have been formulating plans and ideas.  Ever since we improved your mindset.

In reality this step starts in the tool box and will end in a perfectly written, finished trading plan.  Which will be more than one page of A4, because that is not a trading plan.  That is a rule-based tactic, at best.  A real trading plan covers every eventuality, including your DEATH.  So that no decision is taken while in the market, or by someone who has no idea what the market is…

It will contain several trading strategies for different conditions and for when the time comes to hang up old faithful for a while.   As the market changes so will you, because you will know how to judge when the market has grown tired of that particular system.  As an Elite Trader, you will already have back up SYSTEMS ready for this moment.

You will properly back and forward test your own strategies, working out your perfect position sizing and equity management to suit your objectives in life and in Elite Trading.

And WE do all of this because…

“Imagination is the beginning of creation.”


Step 9. Clarity and Focus

  • You will have a comprehensive Business Plan, an Elite Trading Strategy, and SMART Big Goals.  Which will include Passive Income Streams as well as your Trading Objectives.
  • Your Trading Plan will have been designed and completed to suit the new you.  It will include your Trading goals and objectives for each of your Trading Systems and your Trading Strategy.
  • Now you will know your Trading EDGES.  One of which, being able to trade without emotion.  Another being able to handle the day to day pressures of trading…
  • You will therefore be able to Trade with Patience and Discipline… CONSISTENTLY!
  • For fun you will have designed, created and tested a system for a fast trending market to suit your style.
  • Endurance is the reason that you will have designed, created and tested a system for a slow trending market to suit your style.
  • Taking candy from a baby is why you will have designed, created and tested a system for a range bound market to suit your style.
  • You will have reprogrammed your money programming for Success.
  • Your life will be lived using the ALL the Principles of Success.
  • Well-balanced is how you will live your life.
  • Even your thoughts will be thinking a Healthy lifestyle.

Sounds like a lot of Clarity and Focus to me… You must be an Elite Trader NOW!
