My name is Nikos, I am a Forex trader and Forex coach and founder of Spartan System and Nikos Trading Academy
I am trading for almost 20 years now starting with stocks.
Time is passing fast. Before I started trading, I was a musician and music teacher for almost 15 years. I had fun and I enjoyed my job. The problem was that I wanted a family and it’s not ideal to be a father and husband if you have to be away from home almost all day and all night long.
The job was getting too competitive which I didn’t like and the salary got worse year after year. I did not even have enough time or money to plan a simple vacation, or do anything I really wanted for me and my future family. That changed things fast… I got into trading Forex because I wanted something that would give me freedom, so I could work from home, enjoy and live life my way.
I wanted to be able to buy whatever without counting every penny. I remembered times when I was living still alone where I did not have enough cash to buy a sandwich or a pita on the street so I would cook a soup and eat it for days with cheap bread…it was fine then, but now I wanted more…
I got into trading because it looked easy…and it was not…I did not have a clue about it, but I was so pumped that I transferred all my savings to a broker account and started trading…I had read so many trading related books that I thought I was invincible...result; I got crushed so many times I don’t even want to remember. Why? Because the books & theory of trading have nothing to do with the practical part.
In the end I just felt I didn’t have any other choice. I would have to make it work or I had to stop.to be honest, I was lucky because I am stubborn. I had to show some courage and that simple meant…I realized that there are more important things than my fear of loss and failure. I wanted to success, so I paid a lot of attentions to details on my trading and with the experience I had, everything changes literally overnight.
I started to do things differently. I got from 500 $ to 35000$ working my ass of (1—15 h a day). Now I know it does not take that much effort, but back then it was what it was. The key was to apply simple and focused strategies according to my personality.
This changed my life for good I managed to grow my account with a bit too much risk to 100K within a year and started managing private accounts 2 years later.
It was a tough journey and took almost 5 years before I saw this steady growth, but looking back I have to admit I enjoyed every moment of it!
Now I have a loving family with 2 great kids, I live in a way to big house with a breathtaking view, I can do what and whenever I feel like it.
Now, why do I teach? Simply because I love it, I enjoy seeing others succeed and I am happy if I can save traders the trouble I had when I first started. Teaching also makes me a better trader. When I teach it’s always a great reminder of what I need to do to stay tuned on long term success. Of course there is more I deeply believe that we don’t exist in this world just to survive. We are here to learn, to create, to grow and to teach in order to help others achieve their goals and overcome their obstacles in life. Helping to change a part of other people’s live is what I truly believe partly my purpose and task…
I know I can help others saving time, money and frustration on their journey to success in trading, if they are patient, open, listen and are willing to invest a bit of time. I have the experience, the knowledge and skills to do so, and I love doing it.
That applies also to my team; they started out as students just like you and joining one of my private mentoring groups. My motto is; first you become a trader and then you coach others, because if you don’t have the experience, the skills and passion, you can’t teach effectively. I trust my team a 100%, because I know they care about our students and their success, it’s that simple!
So how can we help you succeed…we have 3 programs to offer. The Core Trader, Advanced Trader and Elite Private.
I was able to change my life and I am sure that you can do it as well. Below you will find all the details to choose from…I am happy to say that we have thousands of happy members from all over the world and it would be an honor for us to work with you if what you have heard here is of use to you!
