My experience of THE SWAG ACADEMY…I have purchased the swag academy course and i can say there are positives but a lot more negatives.
Firstly, the course is not suited for beginners at all! i joined as someone with knowledge of trading having used a previous course provider. His videos begin with him going straight into advanced techniques such as scaling in and counter trendlines etc. There is no easing in newbie traders and allowing them to gain confidence with simple concepts such as what is a trend, consolidation etc. He assumed you already have this knowledge despite him making it clear that the course is for beginner traders.
Alot of the time, he is going over the same concepts over and over again. there are 100+ videos which could easily be condensed into 20. It is the same cherry picked examples on the same charts (only charts he gives examples on is GBPAUD, EURUSD, GBPUSD, GOLD). No examples on clean unedited random pairs.
Another point to note is that you are NOT actually given a strategy which you can back test yourself (which is what a lot of newbie trades sign up for) rather you are taught about different confluences e.g. fibo, trendline breaks, MA crossovers etc. All this stuff is actually free on YouTube and explained a lot better as opposes to having 3 min video explaining FIBO on a cherry picked example. It would have been nice to see a variation of examples as the market is not always going to give you a structure for you to apply the FIBO tool.
Also, alot of videos he has on his academy are videos on his youtube channel.
He does have a quiz at the end of every section. But this is pointless as he doesn’t actually teach you half the stuff you are quized on such as the fibo extension levels. A lot of members comment about how confusing his explanations are and the public comments/questions are very rarely answered by him but other members. So we are actually teaching ourselves!
On the plus side, he gives a very detailed explanation on fundamental analysis, psychology and taxes, which a lot of courses don’t touch upon.
Would not recommend to any newbie or advance traders. Stick to Youtube, otherwise you will be wasting your money and time.
Hope this helps!
