What is Forex?
- Forex is short for Foreign Exchange.
- The Forex market is the most liquid market in the world.
- It exchanges approximately $5,6 Trillion per day opposed to less liquid markets such as the New York Stock Exchange that exchanges approximately $20 Billion per day.
People turn to trade the Forex markets for a variety of reasons:
- You can trade from anywhere in the world, all you need is wifi, laptop and cellphone.
- Most liquid market in the world.
- You can profit whether a specific currency is increasing or decreasing in value.
- Forex does not require a high initial investment.
- Traders can begin with as little as $100 which makes Forex all the more popular.
- High liquidity allows large amounts of leverage.
Some brokers allow leverage up to 1:1000.
“The goal of Forex is to buy a currency that is anticipated to gain value or sell a currency that is anticipated to lose value against another currency”
Meet the Man behind it All…
Hi, my name is Clint Fester (Instagram: @mr_festx). I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. I’m 33 years young, Full time FX trader and Entrepreneur. I’m a Husband to Simone Fester and a father to my 2 beautiful kids Kyro and Kourtney. I have been an Entrepreneur since March 2015, after resigning from my 9-5 job after being there for almost 5 years. I started to see my future clearly and I knew I was not going to own a Ferrari or live in a Mansion and travel the world with my family working a day job and to be honest as a young kid we all had the poster in our rooms on our walls of an exotic car and for some reason along the way while growing up we forgot to dream big…
I encountered the Forex market one night while having supper with a friend and noticed these funny looking graphs he was staring at on his cellphone and asked him what it was that he was looking at and his reply was “I am trading Forex”; the blank stare I gave him I can’t even explain because up until that night the word “Forex” was Foreign to my ears, never the less I was fascinated by what he was showing and explaining to me and nearly choked on my sushi when he mentioned the profits he was making. It was unreal to me as my mind could not calculate how that could be possible from a CELLPHONE! I left there that night and spent hours on youtube watching forex videos, the next day I never left my bed! I was watching video upon video of “what is forex” “how to trade” “broker recommendations” etc, plucked the courage to load my first account back In May 2016 I loaded my first forex account with some of my hard earned cash knowing nothing about the forex markets besides a few Youtube tutorials! Big mistake, I thought I was ready… I blew that $500 account in the first week! Loaded another $500 account blew that in 2 weeks, and so I decided I need to look for a mentor. After a month I did a 3 day course with an institute in Cape Town and I still didn’t know when to enter a trade or when to take profit. My losing streak continued…
After many weeks of failure and heartache I turned to a UK company after following them on Instagram for some time. I watched their Technical Tuesday videos EVERY WEEK and I was inspired by them and I wanted to learn from these guys. I then enquired via email got the price for the online course and signed up a month later after saving up. My trading changed drastically and I started actually getting to the withdrawal screen on my broker account and making weekly withdrawals. Money started coming in very nicely but not as consistent as I wanted it too. I wanted to become better at my craft so I studied hours on end doing “backtesting” for weeks. I was now what you can call a Profitable Trader. I then went on to do another online course with a guy who’s out in the USA who had mastered my favourite pair USDJPY, and my entries on this pair has changed drastically. Its been 3 years as an entrepreneur and 2 years as a Forex Trader and I do this full time, I don’t have a day Job, Forex is my life and it helps me do things for my family I could only dream of doing. The fact that we can make the type of Income we make from our cellphones still blows my mind to this day!
January 2018 I started a personal mentorship 2 day course which started with just one student and it grew rapidly after the first 2 months, 6 months later and I have a 100% success rate with all of my students! You will find their testimonials below, these are the founding students of FestX. If it were not for them and so many others, there would not be a FestX today as teaching was never in my plans but that has changed and here you are today…
What Do You Get?
When you enrol with FestX you get full mentorship training provided by myself, weekly webinar breakdowns of currency pairs. My website contains a full online educational platform that gives you step by step lessons that educate you on how to trade. There is no prior knowledge needed at all. I go over the basics such as how to get started, steps to set up the platform onto your mobile device, Price Action Style training, recorded webinars, etc. You’ll also have access to the FestX Traders private Facebook and Telegram channels, and any future implement of the groups.
I have been interested in Forex since 2016, I was brought to it by my brother who heard about it from a friend. I have been on the learning curve for forex ever since I heard about it, done 2 courses before Clints and spent countless hours on youtube trying to piece everything together, this course that Festx provides is simple, profitable and best of all filters all the noise that’s in the market , it can be done by anyone! The content of this course really is priceless and I can highly recommend it, Clint is a hands-on mentor who will always give an ear when you have questions he always looks out for his students best interest. I have never been in the blue as much as I have been now. Thank You Festx…
I Met Clint 7 years ago working together in another company. He always had the drive to be more and do better for his family.
In September 2018 I got into forex through another friend and lost loads of money that I didn’t really have through poorly run signals groups. I then learnt Clint is slaying the forex game and I immediately got in contact with him. I used a chunk of my salary to pay for the course, and the last two weeks of that month I had no money left, but I knew the sacrifice had to be made for the long term. I did his course and my mind opened up to another level. I’m starting to see the moves the market is going to make weeks before it happens. His mentorship is truly something amazing, always making time to reply to messages. The Trading Room where he provides signals is also next level content. We get full market breakdown videos as well as reasons for entry, it’s way more than just taking signals blindly, Its an educational platform at the same time.
Its Truly a privilege to be part of the FESTX Team!
Best decision I made was taking the time to invest in myself and do the FestX course. Clint is a market expert and he has a way to simplify things to the extent a 10 year old could understand it. My trading style has drastically improved after the FestX course. I now have the skillset to pass on to my kids for generations to come all thanks to FestX. This is a well structured course that provides all the information and more to be a profitable trader within the markets.
I went to my first Trading course back in 2015. With the mindset of i’m going to get rich quick. This was not the case and lost interest. Then stepped in FestX. I’ve known Clint for awhile and noticed his passion and drive for Forex. (Aswell as his ongoing profits). So I decided to take his course, On a zoom call all the way from Australia. FestX course was my turning point, he makes you understand the market and see it in a totally different way. I still don’t believe in the get rich quick quote. But after the course i believe in the saying “the skillset will set you free”. FestX is my Mentor and all round good dude, always willing to help and learn! Peace.
I started my FX journey in February 2018.
Before attending the Fest X course I knew absolutely nothing about the forex market but I saw what Clint was doing and the time freedom is what attracted me to get started.
The Fest X way was easy and simple to grasp from day 1, Clint’s style of trading makes it easy for even the most novice of aspiring traders and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to learn the skill of trading the RIGHT way. Too my mentor and friend I can’t Thank You enough.
