Good grief, it looks as though those spam taboola ads are leaking into the editorial section.

Mr Lee’s Improve Your Future portal claims to supply investors with all they need to make a profit trading currency on the global Forex market. The platform, with 2,100 clients who subscribe after a free trial, has been valued at about £2 million. In March, IYF plans to launch an equity trading service.

DYA think Gideon has shares?

Making money from gambling on currency trading whilst a minnow in a pool of ginormous sharks seems like something only a 20yo would be optimistic enough to do.

Is this one of those 1929 style schemes, where you leverage your bets on the currency market; so if the market goes the opposite way to your bet, your losses are multiplied up by 10 fold and you get a margin call forcing you to sell on the dip?

Saw this in the paper. What really surprised me is that you have been able to speculate on currency for many years through spread betting platforms. 

It has 2000 members yet is already worth  £2m.

It offers advice on investments in exchange for money but has no reference to the FCA on its site. Yes, FX is an unregulated investment but I imagine that this is based on derivatives that are. 

Edit: it is not even a trading platform - just an information platform offering tips. As FX is not regulated then trading advice probably won't be either.

Currency trading the new coin?......just another form of gambling, big money to be made but not by the gamblers.......knowing what the risks are, knowing that best not to  risk what can't afford to lose, verses reward, a high probability can lose it.....😉
