Swag Academy Review

Here is a link of my review of 3 YouTube videos made by Swag Academy.

Conclusion:
Highly unlikely he is a profitable trader and not an educator either. He doesnt give consistent or reliable advice. Likely making money from selling courses. Not recommended for beginners.

Iv’e personally learnd a lot from his videos but would kinda agree on purchasing his course. I wouldn’t reccomend it. there is a lot of benefits IF youre someone who needs an extreme helping hand. (he talks a lot about these benefits in one of his videos, like talking to other traders at your ‘level’ and discussing strategies etc.). However, I don’t think I’d pay over £350 for them unless I was Alice in wonderland haha. He’s taught me a lot but definately more than enough to not need to spend more than I have to to get better. I personally do not need his services which you can even get cheeper (books, free videos, trading chats and groups etc.).

I personally havent joined any chats as I’ve said I like to study alone and learn using my own mistakes.

As someone who just got into trading, and who likes to be independent, the progress that I make daily is tremendous compare to what I’ve seen some ‘mentors’ talk about how long it took their students to see progress. I personally belive that being independant with your studies is very important and would only reccomend joining an academy/tutorgroup or whatever it may be if you do not have enough time to learn by yourself and need serious tutoring/help. Hope this helps anyone who sees this :)) x

Similar story with almost all paid courses.

The guy can talk a leg off an iron pot . See no reason to spend such hugh amount of money on his course when you can get thisame info on google or youtube channel .

I do believe learning from people who spent the time learning and making mistakes shortens ones own learning proces though. But what would you recommend instead to learn faster? Just free youtube content/books?

I dont think there is a fast way to br profitable. Otherwise we’d all be doing it. There are a few beginner threads around here so probably start in them and them work out what your trading style is.

I don’t want to force it but a lot of succesfull people recommend learning from people who are already good at what you want to learn. Because they already made mistakes they learnt from and already now what is effective and what not. So learning from them could save you some time. But i get what you’re saying. I’ll start with the school of pipsology, the beginner threads and youtube. :slight_smile:

Wise people learn from other people’s mistakes.

it always funny to see the broke 94% of traders who suggest baby pips and youtube will get them profitable. Paid courses arent the key to success you are, I never heard of a doctor learning how to be a doctor on youtube. attaining a skill that will generate income will always require you to invest in mentorship. obviously you youtube traders wouldnt be on baby pips forums talking b.s about his YOUTUBE videos not even his course. LMAOO your lack of financial commitment to anything speaks volumes as to where you are with trading. #DONTLETTHATGOOVERYAHEAD

lmaoo you dont have 350 pounds because you are broke, there is no rich trader being cheap about investing into themselves no matter the course. stop blaming others for your lack of success and go backtest

I have learned a lot from his videos. I am glad that there are many other traders also who have had a great time watching his videos.

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!

Would you mind giving me a copy of his course? i really need it.

Just go on his YouTube channel lol

I’ve studied every vid he published but i think there happens to be more on his course.

Don’t believe anything that seems to be too good to be true.
