No. The free training is Not a Requirement. You can open an account and start trading without going through the mentorship process.
If you don't want the training, at least request one of our trading e-books instead. If you can only open a mini account, we offer you a practical e-book designed for mini traders. All you have to do to qualify for it is to open a mini account with $250 or more. If you can afford to open a account with more, then you qualify to receive our other e-book designed by our professional trading team.
Please Note: That our FX training program is not just for newbie traders; it is also for experienced stock and futures traders. Through our program, we constantly train traders of different rxperience levels: new traders, ex-day traders that struggled trading stocks or futures and want to improve, existing currency traders that want to learn new strategies and techniques, and the list goes on and on…
The reason why we want inexperienced traders to go through our training with a mentor, is because we don't want customers who are not ready to trade to rush into it. You should not rush into trading.
We occasionally get experienced traders that have already traded other markets successfully and don't want to go through the training, but this is the exception rather than the rule. Many traders will benefit by going through the training (please note that traders that already have experienced and a successful track record can get access to trading capital by completing this form).
NEW: Now All clients, whether they open an account with $250, $2,500, or $100,000, get the same practical e-book. All FX accounts can now trade multiple lot sizes (micro, mini, or standard lots; 1,000 units, 10,000 units, and 100,000 units respectively).
