“In trading, consistency is key.”

G7FX is an educational program for aspiring professional traders created by Neerav Vadera.

Neerav (or more often called NV) has a history of trading professionally: he worked at Barclays Investment Bank for over five years and has since had a successful career trading privately. He claims that his G7FX Training program teaches the same strategies used by himself and the best institutions in the world.

The team messaged NV to discuss his course and ask him some questions about the strategies he teaches.

Why did you decide to create a training program?

“For many years, I worked for Barclays Investment Bank, one of the largest investment banks in the world.

This experience of working in Canary Wharf was amazing – there’s no other way of describing it! I couldn’t believe a job could be exciting and exhilarating, although it was arduous work. Of course, there’s a lot of pressure handling high-profile clients. However, I look back at this period with gratitude, as working at Barclays Capital gave me the experience and knowledge l needed to become an independent private trader.”

The idea of starting his training program came about when he discussed his experiences with a friend new to trading. NV shared, “Out of curiosity, I began looking into the trading education on offer and was completely shocked at what was being taught. Not only did the courses include very few proper trading strategies, but many were also incorporating teachings that I knew from experience were counterproductive to trading profitably. For example, it includes retail trading techniques like Fibonacci, which – like many other technical analysis methods – have no basis in how the markets move and simply do not work in practice.”

Discovering what makes markets move is one of the main aspects covered in the G7FX Foundation Course. It’s such an important thing for new traders to know. He emphasized, “you need to learn the fundamental driving forces before you start investing money.”

The sad reality is that there’s hardly any access to this type of vital education out there. That’s ultimately what inspired NV to start G7FX; “I wanted to teach other people the same strategies I’d found success with, and to disprove the trading myths I’d seen so often online.”

Can you make a career out of trading full-time?

“Absolutely. There are countless examples of people who have made trading their full-time careers – myself included! It’s not easy, not by any means, but it’s very much possible.

Looking at some of the reviews and feedback from the G7FX course, you can see how much this has impacted the students’ careers who embraced what I teach.

The important thing is having the right know-how before you go in. It’s like anything: if you start off knowing the best course of action to take, you’re going to have a lot more success than you would be going in blind.”

How did you learn the strategies you now teach?

“After graduating school, I attended Cass Business School and went through the Graduate Programme at Barclays Investment Bank, followed by work at various international prop firms. The skills I learned at these institutions let me build a foundation for my trading methodology.

I learned the bulk of my strategies by following the rigorous training given to every trader at Barclays Investment Bank and a handful of reputable prop firms. This gave me the professional experience that set me on the course to becoming a successful private trader.

Most training courses you find online teach in a way that’s the complete opposite of how most traders learn. Typically, these courses encourage you to start spending money from day one; at the professional level, however, you’re not allowed to touch real funds for up to a year. Because senior traders understand that learning any skill takes time, so they wait until you can prove your profitability before trusting you to invest actual money.

After leaving Barclays and the prop industry, my work as a private trader gave me more freedom to experiment, letting me optimize my methodology.

I didn’t achieve success right away – it took a lot of practice, experimentation, and failure before I began making even a tiny profit. I hope that the strategies I teach in my program will let new traders skip the trial-and-error process and start trading profitably far more quickly than I did.”

What makes your program stand out?

“As far as I know, I’m the only trading educator with an institutional background who can provide independently verified evidence that I do this for a living. This means I have a proven track record of trading successfully and can demonstrate how effective my strategies are with hard facts and figures.”

Many other trading educators claim their teachings are the key to making big profits, but few will back up their claims with undeniable evidence. NV believes that new traders deserve a proper education, taught by someone with the right qualifications and experience, so they have the best chance at success.

Why do you think so many people fail at trading?

So many people fail because they go in with either no training or the wrong training.

“It’s no secret that trading is difficult. It’s hard even to get a foot in, let alone find success. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible – only that you need to have the right skills and education. After that, you simply need to know how to do it. Once you can navigate the market and work it for your own gain, you’re on the path to success.”

How do you minimize risk when trading?

“Before I even think about spending real money, I draw up a risk management strategy. It involves creating a detailed plan, calculating my expected return, investing only limited amounts at once, and knowing exactly when to enter and exit a trade.

It’s not the most exciting part of trading, but it is a vital one. Incorporating risk management techniques makes sure you don’t blow all the money in your account and turns what could have been a disastrous mistake into a mere learning experience.”

In your opinion, what’s the most important thing for a new trader to know?

Consistency is key.

The winners of the trading game aren’t the smartest or the ones most willing to throw money at the screen. Instead, the winners are the ones who work steadily, patiently, and consistently towards their goals.

“This is something I emphasize often. So many new traders give up early on because they don’t think their actions affect them. They’re putting money in and not getting anything out, so they drop the whole idea and try to find a different way to make money. What they don’t realize is that, had they held on a little longer, they could have found themselves in a far more favorable position. Profit doesn’t come from rushing to get ahead; it comes from making hundreds of small decisions, all of which build into an unstoppable profit-making system.”
