Frequently Asked Questions


What does The Trading Lab offer?

We offer 2 online programmes.

Our Pro Trader course is designed for individuals that want to build a highly profitable trading business.

ELEVATE is geared towards profitable traders that want to elevate their success and achieve their ideal lifestyles. 

The combination of these 2 programmes gives anyone the ability to learn how to trade profitably and subsequently scale their results to achieve incredible lifestyles through financial trading. 

Will trading be right for me?

If you're seeking to enhance your financial situation, gain more time or freedom, trading may be a viable option for you. We firmly believe that virtually anyone can become a successful trader, affording the opportunity to work remotely, set your own schedule, and potentially achieve uncapped earnings. If you're still uncertain, we encourage you to complete our FREE training, which will provide you with a comprehensive overview of what trading entails and help you decide if it aligns with your goals and interests.

What are the risks involved with trading?

Without the correct training, trading carry the potential for substanical financial risk. However, within our program, we've dedicated an entire module to risk management.  Here, you'll learn how to safely control your risk by capping your potential loss in any single trade to 1% of the overall account balance. The application of this and the other rules you'll learn will make it unlikely to experience any significant monetary loss.

Do I need experience?

No. Our programme is designed for any experience level. In fact, some of our most successful members, unencumbered from previous strategies, started as complete beginners. 

How much money do I need to start trading?

The majority of trading brokers offer the option to open a demo account, enabling novice traders to hone their skills without any financial risk. When you're ready to transition to live trading, many brokers permit you to fund an account with as little as £100. Naturally, the larger the account you can trade with, the greater your profit potential. Therefore, many members seek funding through prop firms like FTMO, which enables them to swiftly engage in 5 or 6-figure trading opportunities.

How do I get started?

Regardless of what experience level you're starting from, we'd recommend going through our FREE training first. This will ensure you're going into programme with the right foundations in place. From there, you're able to join our Pro Trader Course which you can get more information about here

Do you have any free resources I can check out?

Yes, if you'd like to learn more about our programme and what we offer before making a commitment, we have several free resources available for you to explore. Here are some options to get started:

  1. Kickstarter Training: Start with our Kickstarter training, which provides an introduction to trading, getting up to speed with the fundamentals. 
  2. Podcast Episodes: You can find multiple podcast episodes under the 'Resources' section on our website. Simply hover over 'Podcasts' to access these episodes.
  3. Ultimate Forex Knowledge Test: Test your current knowledge of forex and trading by taking our Ultimate Forex Knowledge test.
  4. Free Facebook Trading Mastery Group: Consider joining our free Facebook Trading Mastery group for regular discussions and insights.

What broker do you recommend?

Whilst The Trading Lab isn't partnered with any brokers, many of our members use Oanda & IG. However, it's important to do your own research when selecting a broker and ensure the provider you choose is regulated by your country's relevant financial regulatory body.

What strategy do you use?

Our strategy is a unique, no indicator-based method of trading with a focus on market structure & price action across multiple time frames. Our methodology incorporates 2 simple trading setups: a price continuation trade & and price reversal trade designed to exploit almost any significant price movement. Either setup can be used independently to trade profitably. However, when combined, they form a powerful arsenal allowing traders to profitably navigate any market, regardless of the time frame, with precision and confidence.

Do you provide trading signals?

Absolutely not. No professional trader makes a living from copying other people's trades. This is a skillset that needs to be mastered by the individual so they can become self-sufficient. Whilst James and other members will often post their trades in the community Discord channel, we encourage new members to not treat these as signals to copy but instead as examples to deepen their own understanding of the strategy.

What monthly returns can I expect after learning your strategy?

The potential returns for a trader can vary widely based on their individual trading style, risk tolerance, and the time they commit to trading. However, from the observations of our members, it's reasonable to expect that new students, after learning the methodology, could achieve returns in the range of 3-10% per month.

It's important to note that this is a generalization and should not be considered a guarantee of performance. The actual results can vary significantly from trader to trader. Some members might consider a 10% monthly return as average, while others may be satisfied with a 4% return. It's essential for traders to set realistic and personalized goals based on their own financial objectives and risk tolerance.

Can I join The Trading Lab from my country?

Of course! Our programme is accessed entirely online and we currently have members based all around the world, including: the UK, South Africa, Australia, India, the United States and Europe. Regardless of where you currently live, we'd welcome the opportunity to have you in our ever-growing community.
