If colleges offered courses on Forex trading, there would likely be many more Forex traders in the world. But until that time, potential traders will need to rely upon private Forex courses aimed at teaching interested students how to become profitable traders. And while hundreds of Forex courses exist, many are shallow or one-dimensional, focusing on a specific aspect of Forex trading. Once in a while, however, a Forex course emerges which approaches Forex trading as a discipline, not just a hobby. Market Traders Institute is one such company.

Headed by Jared Martinez, a widely recognized Forex expert, Market Traders Institute offers a range of Forex courses suited to traders at all levels. What we found specifically helpful during our Market Traders review was the fact that the company offers a lot of free Forex information, so that potential students and traders can get a sense for the company’s offerings before purchasing a Forex course. Among our favorite offerings were the company’s free ebook, free webinars, and the ability to try their Analyst on Demand service before subscribing. Market Traders Institute’s website also offers a plethora of free Forex articles, though we found many of them to be overly general, perhaps so that traders will feel the need to register. Some first lessons are free, which will give you a sense of what you’re in for if you decide to enroll in a course.

How Market Traders Institute Works

Market Traders Institute breaks down their Forex courses into those for beginners, intermediate traders and advanced traders. You can also choose a course based on a specific topic such as Ballistic Scalping, Swing Trading or Understanding Charting Concepts. Throughout our Market Traders review, we found the course options to be presented clearly so that traders can easily identify which course you’ll want to start with.

Most courses include 16 interactive training lessons, as well as online classes. Students can also choose to attend a 2-day live class, which is presumably held in the Market Traders Institute headquarters in Lake Mary, Florida. Yet traders who won’t be able to travel to Florida can still get a very thorough education with the online materials only. Webinars are also offered on a variety of topics at all levels.

The pricing of Market Traders Institute materials begins at $199, and runs up to $4995 for the Ultimate Traders Package On Demand. This price is undeniably high as compared with other Forex courses, but while we didn’t test every single course during this Market Traders review, we have no doubt that the interactive nature and flexible scheduling of the live courses can help potential traders learn the skills they need to trade profitably, and to hopefully earn the money they’ve spent on their Forex course – and then some!
