The previous negative Review was me that gave 1 star.
Service use: Live
Length of use: 0-3 Months
I out of anger and and from negative experience from unethical educators who I lost money to took out my anger from all of my negative experience on TierOneTrading. The issue that I had was my fault and not theirs they are so honest and genuine and deserve more credit. The skills and education provided there is worth its weight in Gold, for new and experienced traders. The mentors there are amazing.
Aug 6, 2019 - 1 Star this trading school is not genuine, I have experienced very unethical behavior from the tier one group, be aware of this company. The information provided is nothing new and is available for free online. I signed up for a month and they billed me for 2. I tried to get this resolved and they were super unhelpful and confrontational. There were members that still didn't know how to trade and they were there for years. realised the content was not worth the monthly subscription and decided to cancel my 1 month membership and they charged me an extra 300 dollars for another month which I didnt want or need. deeply dissatisfied. another scam type educational organization.
This without doubt one of the best education platforms out there, there is an immense amount of content in the knowledge base and its always evolving. There are also 2 live trading rooms with a London session hosted by Jason Graystone and a New York session hosted by Akil Stokes. On top of that you have a QnA session on a monday and an Accountability session on a Friday. There are also great software tools if you need them plus trading ideas pumped out everyday. The trading community is immense with newbies right through to professional traders all joining in asking/answering questions. Both akil and Jason also put out educational videos on a daily basis with great nuggets of information in them. Its also been known to meet for a few beers every now n again :-) $1 for a 2 week trial. You will learn more in that 2 weeks than all the other so called educators pump out in 2 years.
Excellent platform. The best trading education company out there. The platform is full of quality material, changes your mindset for the better and will make you a CPT if you work hard. The community is key also, receiving advice from the senior traders on the platform & like-minded people who are willing to help, and getting coached by great traders in Akil & Jason and they are genuinely great people who want to see traders become successful.
I have been subscribed to this company since it's inception in January 2018, & in my opinion they are genuinely commited to helping people become profitable traders. They offer a vast amount of trading resources & all the support you would need to succeed in a tough business.
Backstory: I decided to learn to trade full-time (May 2018). I discovered Tier One because I had seen a few videos of Akil on YouTube a while back and he was the only YouTuber that was genuine, transparent and knew what he was talking about. I signed up for a month membership, and yes I had that worry of 'oh what if I just waste money and this is no good' on the other side I thought 'what if this platform is all I need to become a consistently profitable trader'. The potential reward outweighed the risk. I have NOT looked back. I am SO pleased I decided to take that month membership, and after I signed up for an annual membership. +ve 1. You actually learn HOW TO READ PRICE ACTION. I found when looking at other educators that the basics of 'forex' is taught, but I wanted to learn to understand what the chart was actually saying to me, not some wishy-washy generalisation nonsense. And the Price Action course covers this perfectly, I spent significant time going through this and practicing day after day. 2. The community of traders. All over the world, from consistently profitable professional traders to those beginning on their journey. These guys are the best, and have been happy to help me, with psychology, and questions about price action many many many times. It is a very friendly, and enjoyable place to be. 3. The live rooms: shows you what to expect as a trader. Jason and Akil go through their pairs, explaining the type of things they are looking for. This is NOT to copy them, but instead to see the process of trading. That it isn't some frantic 'buy, sell buy' from a movie, but there is a specific process they go through to trade. Both also make it entertaining with side topics i.e. wealth creation. It is also interactive which is a BIG YES. As you can ask questions etc. 4. The coaches, Akil and Jason are excellent. Yes they are great in terms of TEACHING coaches, but it goes beyond this. They are patient, if you do not understand something ask again and again and they will help you until you get it. They are transparent, they give you realistic expectations of becoming a trader (none of this get rich in a month nonsense). They are WILLING to give you their time if you work hard and take this seriously - contactable 24/7 (within reason!). 5. Q&A - Every Monday so you can ask for topics to be covered for Akil to go over, or what you want him to answer questions on. This has been my biggest go-to as a beginner. And Akil will sit there explaining until you understand it. 6. Accountability run by Jason. This was a game changer. I didn't even know the power of accountability until I did my session. It got my head in gear for trading and allowed me to get to know the community that bit better. Jason makes it comfortable and friendly - so if you go to do this nothing to be concerned with.
These guys are good!!!!!!! It is gold dust and I am so pleased I came across this early in my trading journey and didn’t waste time with scams. Everything you need to become a consistently profitable trader is there if YOU are willing to put the work in and do the reps on the charts.Thanks Jason, Akil & Darren for creating a blaster of a platform!
They way to become a consistent profitable trader!
The REAL deal! Being coached by both Jason and Akil for more than 2 years has resulted in me becomming a independent Consistent Profitable Trader. Not saying it's easy, not saying you do not have to MAKE it work, not saying you do not have to work hard: you DO. But with the help of TierOne you got EVERY reason to become a CPT yourself. There's zero excuse not to! :)
This is the best forex educational platform there is. The mentors are very helpfull and realistic. There are allot of scams on the internet letting you believe you will be a millionaire after 3 months. These guys are the opposite they really let you see what it takes to be consistently profitable trader. They answer each and every question you have. This platform also contains more financial education and wealth building strategies than only forex. A great platform! Just try it yourself for only 1 dollar !
If you got this far you might as well read this. ;-)
After being on a journey in Forex land I came across one of Jason's many video's on the world wide web. Seeing it's raw power and potential but still sceptic as I am I went to consult Dr Google for reviews about their Tieronetrading website. My first search result brought me here. After reading all reviews and being sceptic I classed this as a potential scam. Flagged and put aside.
A few signal services, scams and Euro's later I was fed up with all of it but the market still appealed to me. Stumbled upon another video of Jason and I decided to reach out to him. We had an awesome chat about trading and everything around it and altough I wasn't a member he still put lots of effort and time in me. Feeling respected and wanted I went for the trial membership which was only 1$/2weeks. Two days in I went from being a trial member to a premium member! I knew straight away they were and still are the real deal. The way Akil Stokes and Graystone Jason teach are unseen! This is the first time I've seen such a transparency in a bussiness. We have live trading rooms daily in which we don't only talk about trading but everything that comes with it. We're seeing the way they get involved and see the losing trades as well. If you still think trading is only about winning and get rich quick schemes you might be in for a dissapointment but following a vast set of rules, mindset and determenation which you get thaught in the course you will get profitable! It's not only the mindblowing amount of courses that makes it stand out! For me it's the community. Like minded people who help eachother achieve greatness. I'm still taking steps in my journey but I just wish I joined them straight away instead of reading these awfull reviews sending me to lose lots of euro's. In the end of the day I think both Akil and Jason are the real deal! But don't just believe me. Come and have a look for yourself. To quote an inspiration of me: "Plan your trade, trade your plan!"
I like them, I recommend them.. but don't take my word for it. Test them yourself.
I get asked to endorse many brokers, signal providers and educators but I can not in good faith endorse ANYONE with whom I have no personal contact or relationship with what they are selling. THESE GUYS WERE NO EXCEPTION. However I can tell you that after personally spending months reviewing their web site and it's training content as well as interacting with them in real time in the live rooms, that these guys are legit as far as I can tell. I am very impressed with what they are doing and I am not easily impressed. The shear volume of training videos and tools to use that are made available to the full subscriber is somewhat overwhelming at first. I see other negative reviews on here that I can only assume have been made by competitors. I know of no other reason for such outrageous lies. However I DO NOT want you to trust tier one trading for anything that I have to say here. Instead I would recommend that you try limited access to their site for 1 dollar for 2 weeks. Their refund and cancellation policies are at the bottom of EVERY page on the site. If after two weeks you think it is nothing more than a money grabbing scheme with no real trading educational value then by all means come back here and leave an honest review of your experience. Not just some claims with no details. However if you think you got your dollars worth then come back here and share that also. Make no mistake a full subscription is not inexpensive. However, if you apply what is taught at tier one, I think it is some of the best money you will ever spend on a forex education. In just the short time I've been there I have seen vast improvements in some traders as they progress through the course... But don't take my word for it.. spend a dollar and find out for yourself. As far as the personal attacks on Akil Stokes and Darren Oglesbee.. they do not need me to defend them. Anyone that knows either of them knows their reputation for professionalism and honesty. Any one who would suggest otherwise only makes themselves look foolish. I wish you all the best in your forex trading journey.... Pip pip..

Unethical Company - Buyer Beware!
This company is using a subscription scheme to extract extra charges out of customers and the individuals who are responsible for the business side of this company are unprofessional, unethical and show total disregard to customers. Stay away and put your money elsewhere!
I purchased a one month use of this company's educational website. The company charged my credit card again for an additional month ($400.65 CAD) which I did not authorize. I immediately contacted them and requested a refund of the unauthorized charge. I got no response. I messaged them again and they replied that they would not refund my money but they would give me another month access.
I told them that this was unwanted and unacceptable and that their website gives no indication that I am currently in a subscription nor any indication of how many days remain in said subscription. I checked my user profile on their website and there is no user feedback or indication that another charge will be made to the card or that the user is in a subscription. Also, in the user profile, there is no way to cancel the subscription they claim the user is in. I believe it is purposefully made difficult to encourage situations exactly as I am experiencing, charging an additional month fee. They still refused to refund the false charge and even went as far as to make personal insults.
I gave honest and clear feedback about the problems with their website from the user’s perspective. Darren Oglesbee (Darren@tieronetrading.com), who deals with their customer service, is extremely unprofessional and has total disregard for customers. I assume he built the website because I took any feedback on the website very personally, going as far as name calling in his correspondence with me. He also stated that they don’t refund charges because that would ‘cost too much’.
Bottom line: A reputable company (like Amazon.com, Lynda.com) would trust their customers and refund the charge. They understand that the small price (less than a dollar to process as Ive worked in major businesses) to refund is worth it. The customer leaves happy and more than happy to circle around again and use their services. Unlike with Tier One Trading, they lost a customer and I will never use their services again. A recipe for a failed company.
