My Honest Review Of Justin Rath And The Investor Academy
My Honest Review Of Justin Rath And The Investor Academy
This article is a comprehensive review of Justin Rath and his day trading education platform The Investor Academy. I personally have not enrolled in his academy, but I have spoken to several of his existing students and have received some deep insight into the program.
Who is Justin Rath and What Exactly Does He Do?
Recently people have begun to ask me about entrepreneur Justin Rath and his day-trading academy called The Investor Academy. Like anytime I hear about an entrepreneur selling a course, I am quick to put on my research cap to find out the legitimacy of the person and what he is selling. Here’s what I discovered about the entrepreneur himself:
There’s not much information on his early years as a teen or what he did prior to his entrepreneurship or his day trading career, but I found that he grew up in a suburb of the Dallas area before dropping out of college at the age of 18 years old to pursue his journey as an investor and entrepreneur.
At the age of 19 years old he discovered the concept of day trading Forex and found a mentor in his late years as a teen. There’s no clear time-frame on how long it took him to perfect the skill of day trading but he seemed to have some early success within his first year or two as a trader.
The young entrepreneur also built and sold a business sometime in between now and the time he learned the skill set of trading. The company was called EZtutor, which was an on-demand tutoring/learning platform where he created a network of over 5000 tutors within the Dallas metro. It’s unclear when exactly he founded the company, but it does seem that he leveraged the money he made from day trading to fund and build his company which he eventually sold.
Fetii is a mobile group ride-sharing app where Justin currently serves as the CEO and has around 30 employees currently working for him. From what I found, the entrepreneur had brought the ride sharing app to the market a few years after releasing The Investor Academy where he also currently serves as the CEO.
Justin Rath had initially launched his online day trading academy in the United Kingdom before bringing it to the U.S. market in early 2018. From what I understand, this seemed to be a clever move as day trading was popular in the eastern part of the world before recently surging in popularity in the United States.
All in all, the entrepreneur seems to have enough credibility from a business standpoint, but I wanted to find out for myself if this was someone who was finally selling a legitimate product at a fair price. So I dug deep, did my research, and gathered my thoughts below on his day trading academia.
What Is The Investor Academy?
The Investor Academy is an all-in-one academy on how to create a full-time income day trading the foreign exchange markets, more commonly known as the Forex market. Unlike the stock market where you need a high amount of capital (at least $50,000) to see any real returns, the Forex market gives you the opportunity to create legitimate cash-flow with as little as a few hundred dollars.
Forex still falls under the category of investing so taking your time to learn the skill set would be prudent.
After speaking directly with several people who have enrolled, I found that the academy is quite a bit more than just an online course, as the software Justin and his team have built is seemingly one of the best mediums to learn a skill set that I have seen thus far in my 5 years as a business blogger. Here’s how his academy is structured:
– Forex Mastery Training
– Live Trade Room
– Student Discussion Feed
The Forex Mastery section is video-based education that comes with beginner, intermediate, and advanced training as well as a “Getting Started” section that walks new students through the software & set up process with your broker. The entire Forex Mastery course is meant to be followed in the order it is presented in as it progresses you with each video. This structure continues this way throughout the entire academy.
Within the dashboard, students also have access to a built-in student discussion feed and a live trade room which is run by professional traders at the academy. From what I know, this trade room is a built in software in the student dashboard where all of the students of the academy can tune into a live stream and view their professional traders while they trade the markets and conduct analysis in real time. Essentially, even beginner traders can hop in the live trade room and place the same trades that their professional traders are taking.
The caveat to the live trade room is that it is an extra cost of $99/month, but it does seem that they are rewarding its students who purchase the Forex Mastery Training at the academy with 3 months of free access to the live trade room. Last I checked, the academy was selling the Forex mastery training for $995 which does come with the 3 months of free access to their live trade room. Their live trade rooms runs 4 times a week on every trading week throughout the year.
My Honest Thoughts About The Day Trading Course
The way Justin and his team structures the course by locking the future videos unless you have completed and demonstrated and understanding of the current content is unlike most courses you see nowadays. This system ensures that students understand the content in the current video before moving onto the next. I personally love this structure and found it intriguing as it gives the student no other option but to retain information from each video before moving onto the next video.
I personally have not taken the course, so I cannot vouch for the course content itself but the structure of the course along with the live trade room & student discussion feed is something that I feel gives this academy a lot more value than any other online course that I have seen in my business blogging career.
From my understanding, Justin and his team know that learning the skill of day trading will take some of practice, regardless of how quick of a learner you are. This seems to be the reason why they are giving away the 3 months of free access to their live trade room. Essentially, even if you are not comfortable trading by yourself, you will have the guidance of their professional traders to help you take trades while you are still learning from the course itself.
Is Trading Forex A Good Way To Make Money?
The foreign exchange market is a 5 trillion dollar per day market whereas the stock market is a 15-20 billion dollar per day market. Most people have never been exposed to this market and therefore have not realized the potential that this specific market has. Out of any of the financial markets, the Forex market has the potential for the highest returns due to the sheer size the market has.
Like any form of investing, it is inherently risky to invest your money in anything. But just like any other skill, once learned you can reap the benefits of this craft. One of the unique things about this market in specific is that you can make money in a strong economy as well as make money during a recession.
So not being at the mercy of the health of the economy is a benefit that you don’t have if you were starting your own business. Most businesses thrive when the economy is good but as soon as a recession hits, their business takes a hit as well.
Overall, the serial entrepreneur Justin Rath seems to be as credible as they come from a business standpoint. The course structure itself, along with the access to the live trade room does seem like something that would point towards this being a steal at the price it’s at, especially if you are approaching this with the mindset of creating a full time income for yourself.
However, just like any other course and/or opportunity you must be prepared to put forth the effort to learn this skill set. From my research and what I know about the Investor academy, I will score this an A. The reason I cannot give it an A+ is because I have not taken the course myself but from what I have heard about the entrepreneur himself, along with the way the course is structured, this looks to be one of the best courses I have come across.
