IFT’s Kick-Start Trading™ Program is designed to do just what its name suggests, kick-start one’s professional trading career. Its main purpose is a powerful one, which is to be the first step one takes toward the grand goal of trading the financial markets for a living.  The Kick-Start Trading™ Program is perfect for those who currently have limited funds and resources, but possess maximum drive and determination to trade the markets for a living one day.

Kick-Start™ allows for a trader to receive his first level of seed-funding up to a maximum of $100,000 and earn 20% of all profits earned on that account, payable monthly. While there is a base level of ongoing education and guidance provided for the Kick-Starter, there is absolutely no educational fee to begin. A one-time registration and set-up fee of $100 is all that is required to start the journey toward a potentially lucrative and rewarding career as a professional and fully funded trader. Each Kick-Starter is responsible for paying real-time data, trading platform (Fusion® for Equity / MT4 for Forex) and membership fees, all of which are included in a single monthly payment of $125. This monthly fee is the only cost incurred as a Kick-Starter and is substantially lower than most monthly costs levied on professional traders at other trading firms.

It should be noted that the Kick-Start Trading™ Program is an entry level one. It is not designed or meant to be the final resting place for the trader. It is where the trader will cut his/her teeth, as it were, where the trader will gain his footing, develop his first level of trading skills, where the trader will learn the fundamentals of sound professional trading and experience his first level of consistent profitability. Once some level of profitability has been maintained constituently over a period of time, and a good number of healthy paychecks have been earned by the trader, it is time for the next level. The time for this to occur is dependent on the trader and will be different for each person.

Education Benefits:

A number of very important benefits are included in the Kick-Start Trading Program™, all of which are designed to nurture, develop and season the trader. They are:

    IFT’s Live Platform and Execution Training Course - In this one day course, the trader will learn how to use and navigate the institutional trading platform used by all of Oliver Velez’ professional traders (Fusion® for Equity / MT4 for Forex). Everything from how to setup charts, watch lists, and technical indicators will be thoroughly covered. The use of various market scans and position alerts will be covered along with how to run analytical reports on your trading results. Most importantly the trader will learn Oliver Velez’ famous Hot-Key Trading™ System and how to execute the various types of sophisticate orders placed by professional traders. This educational area alone takes the Kick-Starter™ light-years beyond rudimentary trading methods of retail trading.

    Unlimited repeats of IFT’s Live Platform and Execution Trading Course - This course is given live bi-monthly and can be attended as many times as the active Kick-Starter deems necessary.

    IFT’s On-Demand Platform and Execution Training Course - The above training course, which is currently delivered live, on-line is now also available in a recorded, on-demand format. The Kick-starter will have unlimited access to this on-demand training course every day, 24-hours a day.

    Video Training Bank - Each Kick-Start Trader™ will have access to a bank of training videos that cover every aspect of the Trading Platform (Fusion® for Equity / MT4 for Forex) and the various types of executions.

    One Full Month of Daily Guidance in iFT’s Live Trading Room - The Kick-starter gains immediate access to the Forex or Equity live trading room (depending on the market you’ve chosen) where he/she will receive daily guidance from the lead moderators and mix and mingle with other traders in the program. Live trading together, with and amongst peers, can be a powerful, nurturing element to one’s trading. It happens here.

    Unlimited Access to Oliver’s Private Facebook Trading Colony - Each active Kickstarter will gain immediate access to Oliver’s Equity or Forex Trading Colony on Facebook (which group will depend on the market you’ve chosen to trade). Here, in this powerful community, the Kick-starter will interact daily with Oliver and many of his/her fellow traders. It is where many questions are answered, trades are shared and analyzed and lifelong friendships at iFT are made.

    Live Study Sessions with Oliver Velez - Once a month, all Kick-Start™ Traders will gather for a full educational session with Oliver Velez to review the past trading period, identify errors, correct mistakes, and revisit core trading tactics and techniques. These monthly study/review sessions are very important tune-ups for the Kick-Starter and will serve as vital battery charging events that keep the trader focused and on the right path toward proper trading development. For those who cannot attend these sessions on the specified date and time, each study session will be recorded and made available in the Kick-Starter’s personal control center for later viewing. This benefit alone adds a level of value to the Kick-start Trading™ Program that cannot be quantified in economic terms. Any time spent with Oliver Velez is potentially life-changing for any and all traders, irrespective of their level.

Kick-Start Trading Account:

    90-Day Simulated Trading Period - This is where the Kick-Starter begins to put theory into actual practice and starts to build the good habits that form the right foundation for consistently profitable trading. This training period which takes place with real-time market data will reveal the trader’s flaws and show what needs to be altered, corrected or eliminated in one’s trading approach. Much of the Kick-Starter’s growth and promise will be developed and revealed during this training time. The Simulator Trading Period presents one major trading milestone for the Kick-Starter™ to pass, a $3,000 net trading profit achieved with good trading statistics. Upon passing this all important milestone, the Kick-Start Trader™ is ready to begin his/her professional trading journey and is granted a live, fully funded account along with a 20% payout on all profits earned.

    Fully Funded Trading Account - This is the crowning jewel of the Kick-Start Trading™ Program. Upon graduation from the Simulator Trading Period (see above), the Kick-Starter becomes eligible to trade a fully funded account up to a maximum of $100,000. The Kick-Starter earns 20% on all realized trading gains, which are paid out monthly. Here the trader’s goal is to string together a series of consistently profitable quarters with the real account, demonstrating that he/she is ready for the next step in the professional journey toward trading for a living.

    IFT’s Institutional Transaction Fees - All Kick-Start Traders benefit from the firm’s institutional trading and commission rates. Equity Kick-starters trade for 15 cents per every 100 shares traded. A 1,000 share trade would cost $1.50 in commissions. Kick-start Equity traders also will receive rebates (payments from the exchanges) for placing certain types of specialty trades, another huge benefit for professional traders over retail traders. Kick-start Forex Traders enjoy some of the tightest pip spreads in the industry and nearly no slippage to speak of.

The Cost:

The Kick-Start Trading™ Program is the most economical way to start a professional trading career, without having to layout tens of thousands of dollars. It is specifically designed for those who currently have limited funds and resources, but possess maximum drive and determination to trade the markets for a living one day. The cost to become a member is:

    Registration fee - A onetime registration and set-up fee of $497 is due upon sign-up.

This fee is substantially lower than the monthly costs levied by most other professional trading firms in existence today.
