Do You Know Who Your Forex Trading Teacher Is ?

By | April 12, 2015

My reaction after seeing AstroFX YouTube channel

I was on YouTube watching some trading videos when I stumbled upon Astro FX channel. So here are these two guys (Shaun Powell and Aman Natt), in their early twenties, dressed up to the nines, very expensive looking watches, driving luxury autos with personalized number plates like  F13REX, giving forex trading seminars and selling courses. Instantly my bullshit meter went through the roof. I had to find out what this scam is all about.

After doing some research, the following facts came up:

  • the Myfxbook verified results they boast actually prove they have a complete lack of understanding what trading is about and what purpose track records serve. Firstly, losing around 50% of the account in one day and draw-downs of +80% would make any person with a minimum sense of ridicule to refrain from giving paid trading advice. Secondly, track-records with a length of a few months  can’t really showcase trading ability (because they are too short) but they can and did in this case reveal trading amateurism.
  • the luxury cars come from Platinum Executive Travel Rental Cars in Birmingham, where the owner’s son apparently is a friend of Aman Natt

So we have two guys who not only don’t know what forex trading is, but they take their ignorance as a sign of virtue and expertise. There’s no other explanation for posting and continuing advertising of those dismal results on Myfxbook. Furthermore, by uploading videos on YouTube where they draw lines and put indicators on charts and call it technical analysis or showing off their supposed wealth made through trading, they try to pass themselves for professionals. Don’t be fooled by the appearances and pay them to teach you forex trading – the only thing you’ll learn is how to lose money.

    Thank you to warn inexperienced investors against risks shelled in your articles (this one and ‘Exential Group – Managed Forex Accounts Scam’). A friend lost €60,000 by investing in a FOREX company that was only a scam.

    Shaun Lee Powell and Aman Natt, two very sly forex con men from Birmingham, they stole the original forex trading material, drive around in rented sportscars, have been trading other peoples money illegally without a licence, are joined by members of the JA Wealth scam team, the list goes on and on. Don’t listen to a word I say though, check out the online complaints here for more info:

    I like many others was duped into buying into the 3 day Forex training event, which was sold to me by the dubious traders Aman Natt and Shaun Powell in Birmingham. I paid exactly £3000 of my inheritance hoping to make much more after reading about these guys however unfortunately I lost circa £27000 in 5 days to these jokers!

    The event is poor and they show you the basics of trading which anyone can source from the internet, so PLEASE PLEASE do not make the same mistake as me, I feel sick. The wealth the show off is purely to entice you and pull you into their big scam! They will take your money and blow it on themselves. I have reported them to the FCA and NCA so hopefully they will not exist in the future.


    These guys took my £5,000 and promised il learn consistently they have blocked me on skype after they “taught” me. And they blew my account I won’t recommend them.

    These guys will take your money at their own advantage and use it against you!!! Shaun especially will not reply if I require help or assistance they blocked me on all their social media so I couldn’t show how much of a BS company they are!! The cars are rental.

    If you need a course I would advise you too watch YouTube videos which are free they are much better at explaining and will teach you the right education, I could not get my money back as I paid wire transfer which was ***!!! Don’t make the same mistake I did. I hope this help you.

    It seems to me the way to make money from trading is to sell courses for these crooks.
    You got the likes of Anton Kreiel, AstroFX and many more pricks showing the high life to succer the stupid in.
    You don’t need expensive courses to make consistent profit trading. You just need to learn and understand the markets. SUPPLY and Demand— Stop loss runs.
    I do Trade News events, If your going to trade news Just make sure you have a system and use Guaranteed stops so as not to get slippage costs. I love trading news.
    Then its all about managing your money.
    All the rules are out their for you to observe.
    I personally don’t like Trading, I love Spread betting as I am not long term trader. It what works best for me and is nice and safe with guaranteed stops. No slippage cost for this boy. tax is in the spread,

    What they are doing is simple. They promote themselves as being top traders by showing off/promoting there wealth on instagram/facebook when this wealth/flashy life style has funded by teaching the average Joe the basics within 2-3 days and charging them £3000 plus. The money that is funding there life style is from students and not from them trading the markets. At the end of the day it is a *** but it is legal as there are fools out there who would pay to be taught.
    The cars they buy are actually an investment for them and they treat them as business assets as they lure more people into believing they are top traders when they are certainly not.
    There business model is working so fair play to them i just feel sorry for all the mugs out there lol
