Not a millionare yet but...
This is exactly what I was looking for... Awesome!
Making money out of money is really a matter of choice for me now. Insane to say I know. The rules and no analysis have helped me so much and just make sense. Just practical and proven. I follow all the rules for the strategies and I really love the honesty throughout the course. If you're thinking about doing it then just go for it!
High Quality Information
The contents is indeed high quality information, but my suggestion is you should speak more like cheerfully or friendly. Make a joke sometimes that is related to trading, to make your video more entertaining and interesting to watch. This is not necessary, but when you were performing a real time building an edge from the scratch, as a newbie myself I find it hard to understand but I was able to get the gist of it after analyzing it for some time. Also after watching the first section of the course I already told my friends about how good it was. Happy I chose to work with you William!
Happy so far.
For the first time ever I am consistently profitable as a trader.
The one thing I rate most though, even more than the profitability, is the peace of mind.
If there was one thing I could say to anybody skeptical about paying for this (or any other WBTrading) course, it’s this. Feeling confident as a trader, not having to analyse and make guesses, not having that constant doubt, the underlying worry that you’re wrong, is well worth the price of the platinum course and then some!
My mindset towards trading has completely shifted. Being right about a trade is a fantastic feeling, but the knowledge and confidence you gain from the course means that there is no longer a massive emotional spike when you are wrong. Seeing the bigger picture, understanding risk and how the process of long term profitability works is possibly the most important lesson of all.
With regards to customer service, I don’t believe it could get any better. I emailed WBTrading and received a reply in 6 minutes! I genuinely couldn’t ask for more.
There are a lot of scammers and bad educators out there, (take it from somebody who has fallen foul of this more than once) and honestly Will is not one of them. I am happy to recommend WBTrading to anybody who wants to learn how to trade mechanically.

Recent User Reviews of WB Trading
Very straightforward and welcoming experience
Yes it is, and it’s really easy to follow.
Until I found William’s strategies, I had tried 3 or 4 different forex courses, EA’s and robots, and since 2011 when I first started trading, I’ve easily spent £8k on content and probably blown £12k in funds.
I was very sceptical about WB Trading and even during the introduction call I still wasn’t very sure, and had promised myself that if I take the course and I had no success, then I was going to give up Forex trading altogether, enough would have been enough.
So I started with William’s “session momentum strategy” only, as I really couldn’t afford all 4 programmes. Once I completed the course content I made myself a spreadsheet where I could input data from the charts, and the formula in the spreadsheet would calculate my entry and exit points, all of which is taught in the course. I started with various RR ratios, and within days I could really see some benefits, and had started to make some profit on my very small trading account.
Then there was a special offer to get all 4 programmes for a limited time deal. So I did. I have had some good results on the “Price reversion strategy” and the “Bias Bar strategy” but not enough time has passed for me to realise the D1 swing strategy, which is a long term strategy.
After 4-5 weeks I was up about 12% on my account. But my account is very small so I decided to look for a prop fund. I decided the 5% ers was the one for me. www.the5ers.com
So I started their “high stakes” trader funding programme on 4-Sep. The first stage is to make 8% profit, second stage is 5% profit, and then I get to trade a live account. Well only 3 weeks later, on Friday 22 September, I hit that first stage 8% with a 57% win rate. It only cost me 39USD. The 5ers has a more generous loss threshold than ftmo.com and that’s what attracted me to it. That said, as I gain more confidence and maybe realise that only 6, 7 % drawdown is needed, I may open more funded trading accounts and start using trade copiers, who knows, I’ll see how things go.
To end, I just wanted to say that if you enroll, and follow the rules, forget about any other training you’ve had, then I’m sure you can start making a profit too. My best instruments have been GER30 (aka GER40, DAX40) and GBPUSD (aka “Cable”)
PS: I found that using a spreadsheet makes it even less emotional, and more mechanical. I can give you the spreadsheet I made, if you enrol and if you want it.
Money well spent!
My advice is that you steer clear of this company
Moreover, I believe it is everyone's responsibility and duty to call out bad actors where they exist.
I came across Wbtrading as a flashing advert on YouTube whilst researching trading strategies that would allow me to trade a mechanical rule based system. I signed up for a call and had a few video calls with someone called Roy who seemed like decent fellow and we talked about a lot of things besides trading which seem to resonate well with me. I made a payment of £4000 for the platinum membership package, which he suggested would work out better than installments.we talked about faith, about charity work and said I could call at anytime if I had any concerns etc.. This was in hindsight a ruse. I believe once you register interest in a call, someone from the company look through your social media profile and tailor their conversation with you in that direction in order to gain your confidence.
Long story short, I paid for the course in April and painstakingly went through the whole syllabus at least twice and was shocked at what was being package as set and forget system. For one, I had told the vendors rep on my calls that my work schedule wouldn't allow 8am trade's. There were 2 short term strategies which other have alluded to here already and 2 long-term strategies.
These short term strategies freely available on YouTube and the longterm strategies are a moving average crossover and an engulfing candle patterns, which neither justifies there ridiculous amount charged nor the claim made of proprietary systems. I back-tested the long-term strategies and compared to the results shared by WBTRADING and they were inconsistent and more than that, not profitable. I reached out to Paul and William about my concerns and asked for a refund because I believe they lied about the results of the backtest but as I write haven't received any explanation for the discrepant result even though I included evidence to support this assertion. I was told to refer to the terms and agreements and show that using a strategy for 2 months was unprofitable. If the backtests are wrong and falsified, what confidence is there in real-time trading these freely available strategies anyway? I was also told that refund policy is to prevent people from taking these "proprietary" strategies, using them and asking for a refund, but these are freely available online and I really do not want them because they don't work.
I am seeking legal redress because it is ethically and morally wrong for WBTRADING to do this to hardworking people.
So my advice is that you steer clear of this company.
NB.. I have proof of my assertions.

I also purchased the bots and after some SIM trading I’m now live and they are performing well.
I hit some roadblocks with platforms and brokers to work with here in the US but I’m navigating through it.
Paul, Tom, Azri and Dima have been a huge help and have provided great support. Far and away the best support I’ve received with any trading program. They truly care about your success.
Thanks for a great program and I see the value and how it will bring the best to my trading.
