Forex Mentor is an outrageous fraud. The company was founded by a former futures broker with a very shady past of selling get rich quick, Forex trading educational programs. After 5 separate CFTC reparations cases alleging financial fraud, and 3 NFA violations and fines totaling nearly $300,000, he finally left the futures brokerage business in 2013.
Of the past 15 years, Forex Mentor has marketed dozens of “get rich quick” Forex trading educational products. Currently, there are over 20 educational products for sale on the website. To list each product would be mundane. To give you a prime example of the marketing hype, I have included the flagship product titled “The Big Dog Currency Trading System”.
Trend-following systems require a particular mindset, because of the long duration—during which time profits can disappear as the market swings—these trades can be more psychologically demanding. When markets are volatile, trends will tend to be more disguised and price swings will be greater. Therefore, a trend-following system is the best trading strategy for Forex markets that are quiet and trending.
