Like most of the students who come to the Fotis Trading Academy, Marc was initially lured into forex with promises of easy money and fortunes to be made. At the early age of 40, he sold his business, took semi-retirement and emigrated to the sunny Canary Islands off the West Coast of Africa with his young family.

Very soon after moving Marc discovered that retirement costs a whole lot more than he had previously imagined. He turned to forex trading to support his family. After a difficult, initial 3 years in which he lost around $20.000 he finally became a relatively successful home-based trader. He managed to make a living, but like many other home traders became frustrated by the repeated mistakes he was making and thought about quitting. He was faced with the dilemma of stepping up his trading or moving back to the UK to start another business.

Marc made the decision to treat his trading like a business rather than a hobby and hired the Academy’s veteran trader and trading psychologist Rich Friesen to teach him how to ditch his losing habits and develop new ones. Marc’s losing streak didn’t disappear overnight but by 2006 he was trading consistently profitably and earning a 6-figure income.

Since then Marc has traded for private clients; remotely traded for a hedge fund; created a forex mentoring program and is now joint Managing Partner of our own Fotis Trading Academy.

Marc has first hand knowledge of the stresses and problems faced by retail traders and has a 5* reputation on independent review sites for the quality of his mentoring and support. He has been where you are now and has found a way to make the difficult journey from home-based retail trader to someone who regularly trades $Million accounts for others.

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
