Member Experience

What Traders around the world have to say about our training.

Hi Vance,
I want to thank you for what you do!

Before signing up I completely ignored your member feedback page.. hahaha!
Because it was on your site, I just assumed they were coerce or manipulated.
In hindsight, now that I'm a member, I see it's just feedback page.
All from your members, completely honest and organic.
Which makes that page even more impressive!

I have to say I signed up because you're down to earth, serious, very experienced, and accessible.
You also cover all aspects of trading, not just strategy.

The fact that your not a "youtube forex celb", didn't surprise and is a positive for you, IMO!
There are too many that live on teaching forex rather then actually trading forex!

I like your motto of education is watching you, and training is you watch us.
It explains exactly what your program is all about.

Your on going mentorship is of me great value to me and not to mention your entertaining and informative morning sessions!

Your 1cent trial is a no-brainer and your 12 monthly payment plan is very generous.

I don't have any hesitation recommending Vance to beginners or non beginners, who are serious about being 'consistently profitable' in forex!

Moment of Clarity
A few weeks ago I had a moment of clarity.
After a year of learning Forex with Vance and trading it all came together.
It was one of those moments when everything you have been studying, practicing and researching all comes together in one coherent thought.
The moment of Ah Ha!
I get it now!
That is what happened for me.
For a year now I have been studying with Vance and trading. I have been learning more and more as the time went on. Practicing and doing research.
It was just shortly after I started posting fundamentals in the Team Fundamentals Forum that I had insight.
I was listening to one of the morning live recordings and Vance was talking about short and medium term trades. I am not sure what he said or what he was showing, but at that moment everything came together and I knew exactly what he was talking about, what the market fundamentals meant and what my trading plan meant.
It was the best feeling I have had in a very long time concerning Forex.
It was also the first time since I started this I didn’t get an anxiety attack or upset stomach at the thought of trading a live account. I realized that there is not a difference, as long as I follow my trading plan.
By no means am I done learning or looking for guidance from Vance, far from it.
It just means I understand what Vance has been teaching us and it allows me to learn more.
The foundation that Vance is teaching is more important than anything you will learn in Forex. Without it you will fail and lose all your money.
My motto is Patience and Persistence.
Don’t rush it, don’t force it.
Be Patient and Persist in your learning.

I am truly enjoying your program.
It is more than trading; it is a way of thinking and a way of life.
The holistic approach Vance teaches not only helps you with your trading, but with everyday life. His advice and recommendations for reading have helped improve what I do and how I do it.
This is a great course and it is hard to put a price on all the benefits you get. Keep an open mind truly listen to what is being said and you will do more than master currency trading, you will begin to master your life.

Ted Elliott

I've been trading forex for about 8 years since 2006. Throughout the first 7 years I spent thousands of dollars on countless online trading methods, robots, mirror trading, and none of them worked for me. I was blowing my account over and over again. On top of all my losses, I spent all day and night glued to my computer monitor looking at charts. I had no profit and no life, and even though I was working from home, I was spending more time on my charts than with my own family. I was consumed with trying to make forex my livelihood and main source of income, but my untrained efforts only brought me to more debt and a huge sense of failure. It felt almost impossible to make money trading. Most people would have probably stopped trading completely after losing over $10,000, but I still believed it was possible to make a living trading forex. When I came across Vance's Art of War video on youtube, I was trading a small account ($1000) unsuccessfully. The free online videos and free e-books that I read and watched, showed his general method of trading which was so simple, yet so precise and accurate. I was even starting to make consistent profit following just his youtube videos, so I knew that I stumbled onto what I have been looking and hoping for all these years. The fact that he was giving away his method for free and not some sneaky tease method only to lure you in to pay for some software or EA and then leave you to fend for yourself, was unique to me. So I put my live account on hold and joined his forexartofwar program.
Vance helps you create a trading plan, using his proven method, designed specifically for each individual trader. His training, forum, insight, and expertise are like nothing I've ever come across. For the first time in 8 years, I am trading with a step by step plan that he helped create for me to trade successfully with consistent profit. I don't spend my entire day glued to my charts anymore. I have strict rules that I follow which now gives me the freedom and peace of mind I never had trading forex. Although I still have more to learn through my experience, I am greatly appreciative to Vance and everyone in the forum who has helped me get to where I am today. I've learned more about my trading and myself personally in the last 7 months from Vance than I have in the last 7 years on my own.


I really love your philosophical approach to trading. I now truly appreciate the interconnectedness of all that is. Your program has given me all the necessary tools for me to develop my own skill.

I could write an essay detailing the value of your guidance; but to put it succinctly, thank you for being the signpost that has shown me the path of least resistance. I'm grateful for the wealth of knowledge and training you have provided me. Thanks for keeping it real!

Jason Tong

I signed up with Vance about 7 months ago. I have been busy with my two little daughters, so I've been working on the program very slowly. Vance's program has many great qualities. For me, it's extremely flexible. And because Vance watches your progress PERSONALLY, you receive top notch education. The live sessions are great. You interact DIRECTLY with Vance and other traders. Vance does not just give you information and learning material and tells you to go figure it out. He watches your practice trades and gives you personal feedback. And for me, that is the most valuable education I can get anywhere.

I am a curious person by nature. I have dabbled in a lot of different educational/financial concepts. I have always been looking for a great way to get involved in the financial market.
When I ran across I thought it was just another one of those websites that wanted to take your money and leave you high and dry. I entered my contact information in on the website and did not expect anything to come of it. The next morning I awoke to a call from Vance. I thought "wow, they seem on top of it, for sure this is just one of those telemarketers." He told me about a free 30 day trial to the complete education of the website and then hands on training with a reasonable cost after a month. I thought to myself we will see what happens after 30 days right?
I was travelling for work then, so I had quite a bit of free time. I began learning as much as I could as quick as I could. I got to a point where I had learned the concepts (so I thought). I was thinking they would just say thanks for your money, now go out and use your money to practice what we taught.
That was not what happened at all.
I was told to not open a live account and just practice under the direction of Vance and his team until I knew exactly what was happening. So....Here I sit about 6 months after running into and I am getting much closer to live trading. I feel a million times more secure about what is happening in the Forex market than I did before. I had no knowledge at all. I now know that when I do start live trading, I will understand the logic of the market well enough to experience success.
Vance has characteristics that are not found very often in people. For some reason, he wants to mentor us as we grow and make us better Forex traders. It is as if everything he does is only to help others. That is a very admirable trait that the majority of us do not possess.

Todd Larson

I am brand spanking new to forex trading and have been navigating my way through the site and level 1 videos and training. Needless to say everything feels a bit daunting but just sitting and focusing every day and not letting my fear and slow progress discourage me is great.

I am usually very impatient but realized that will just land me into deep water in the world of forex trading. Just having to go through everything step-by-step with the assistance of the trainers is forcing me to focus, master and then move on at a reasonable pace.

What I find particularly motivating is to see how different people are progressing to different levels every day - that is really very inspirational to me and it keeps me focused and exited to keep going. This is a great learning community and exactly what a newbie like me needs. There is no ra,ra,ra about how much money is made and no moaning and complaining about how much is lost.

Vance, thank you for creating such a great space to learn and thank you everyone for building and maintaining such a great positive learning community.

If you are looking for an edge in the Forex market, this is the place to be. Fundamental and technical education is important, but training and discipline is what sets an Art of War trader apart from the rest of the market. You know you are working with the real deal when the program has been developed and centered around principles from the one and only, Sun Tzu.

What really sets this program apart from the others is the psychological training you receive as well. It is what gives you the edge as a trader. You must conquer yourself before you're even able to survive in the Forex market. The added benefit of having psychological training is that it has positively influenced all aspects of my personal life too!

Working with Vance and his team is a pleasure. The training and social environment is friendly and more importantly, focused. If you want a professional, no nonsense, down to earth, practical, and encouraging approach to Forex, then Vance is your man. It's affordable, and you get more than you pay for - provided you apply yourself and put trust in the program.

I feel that I could not have done this any quicker with anyone else. From zero trading experience to going live in just 5 months - and without any compromise to the quality of education or training. Joining this program has made me feel very grateful for having saved $$$ and years of grief from failure.

THANK YOU Vance and team!

Jason Tong

Vance's flexibility and patience allowed me to combine this training with employment and college work. I've been training with vance for a little over 18 months now. I've been supplementing university work with trading in my free time so I have subsequently progressed significantly slower through the training process than my fellow traders here at FAW. I was initially surprised at vance's dedication to each individual trainee's skills and circumstances. In the beginning I'd often remind Vance of how I'm getting on as I knew he had 100s of trainees and didn't want to be forgotten in the haystack, however overtime Vance's actions made it clear that he sculpts the program around each individual's interests and skills so I had nothing to worry about!

Now at level 3, Vance and I spent hours (30min at a time) developing and perfecting a high probability trading setup that I am confident using. The amazing thing is that I did it all by myself! This is why I believe Vance is great at being patient with his trainees, as contrary to other Forex programs, Vance waited until I observed the correct behavior myself and merely guided me in the correct track. Vance allowed me to write and develop every part and nuance of my own system for myself which gives me a solid sense of satisfaction and credibility when executing decisions in real time.

The most valued facet of this program however is the complimentary wisdom he gives. Vance's methodical and psychological approach to not just trading, but real world experiences has really taught me a lot and helped me address daily encounters with more of a logical, planned perspective. His rants about expectations, consistency, execution and assumptions I tend to find increasingly interesting as often his life experiences and advice are ones I find value in and appreciate.

Becoming a member of this program is quickly shaping out to be one of my most proudest decisions of my life at the age of 22! I would certainly recommend a friend to try at least a couple of months with the FAW team, and once you see the light, you'll want to never leave :)

Shady Attia

It has been really great experience to work with Vance. He only gives you informations you need to know at that time and encourages you to improve yourself. Always gives you an objective opinion and tries to take the best out of his students. He is an extraordinary guy who likes to help people. His amazing coaching has brought me where I am today and I really want to thank him for that.

Jan Miratsky


To whom it may concern, I would like to give a review of my experience with Vance Williams at the, in regards to level 3 of his program.

I have been in level 3 for a couple of months now and feel that with the help of Vance, I am slowly building a trading plan that I can call my own. Vance takes the time to review each of my trades and then gives me feedback in a easy to understand fashion.

Just today, I had a one on one session with Vance. We went over my first 10 trades using my initial trading plan, recognizing which elements of the plan needed attention, and which rules seemed to be good.

Overall I am very pleased with my progress and the help Vance has given me. If you are considering working with him, I can assure you it will be well worth your time and money. But just know, you must put in the work!

Self awareness and managing ones emotions is a crucial component of taking high risk decisions and trading successfully. It cannot be underestimated and ignore this at your peril. I'm thankful to Vance for his guidance and sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience on the subject throughout the training program.

Giles Lucas

Having recently completed my first series of 10 trades in Level 3 I certainly see consistent profit in the cross-hairs. The journey thus far has been challenging, rewarding and insightful. Training has been as much about learning about myself as it has about Forex. A key component of success in Forex as in life is the mindset that one brings to the table and having the discipline to stick to the plan - often easier said than done.
Training encompasses all aspects necessary to achieve success and comes in the form of skillful guidance in forums, live sessions and one-on-one trade series reviews from Vance.
I thank Vance and his team for an excellent program, dedication and commitment to the success of all involved.

Giles Lucas

I have been a member for just over a month now and I has been great so far.

I find the way the content has been laid out to be very useful and the inclusion of a personal forum, which is being monitored is very beneficial to a newbie like me.

The coaching has been great so far and Vance and the rest of the team has provided me support when I needed it. I would highly recommend joining!

Chris Mathurin


I just wanted to take a moment to say a few words about Vance's coaching at the Forex Art of War.

I have been through another trading course prior to joining Vance at and although the other trader I was learning from was wildly successful, he had a very difficult time articulating what he was doing and had virtually no thought out plan of action on how he was going to be able to make me successful.

Vance on the other hand is very selfless in his approach to coaching and his entire focus is not driven by egotistical reasons but rather driven by the best possible method for him to get each individual succeeding with their own trading style. My favorite part of his program is the fact that you are getting one on one coaching from Vance via the trade forums where you post your trades and he coaches you and directs you in the right direction.

Another great thing about the trade forum is that other traders can also see your trades, making it a team effort for every trader to learn the proper way of analyzing the market all while having his or her own trading style.

If you are serious about becoming a professional trader (AS I AM!) then Vance is the best choice you could make!

Good luck,
Matt Hale

Hi Vance,

I just wanted to say that I am very impressed with you and your great team. The willingness to help, the positive vibe from your team members is nothing short of impressive. I'm also blown away by the fact that you decided to quit taking new students at this time. That shows your dedication to your current students. It tells me that you want to give everyone the attention you feel each student needs so you keep your student body to a manageable level.

I am a complete novice at this. I knew absolutely nothing about trading anything much less FOREX. I'm so excited to be a part of this training program. I don't want to rush my life away but I look forward to a year from now just to see how much I have learned and advanced.

Keep up the great work!

For me, the way Vance has divided his education into 4 levels is an extremely unique and effective way of getting traders (especially me) to focus on the core elements of what it really takes to start making consistent profit.

Level 1 looks incredibly simple at first glance.

Open a chart, put some moving averages on, find a price move and use the Fibonacci tool. Then decide where to enter, put your stop and place your target.

Even if you've never traded before, everything is so well explained in both video and written format and Vance even gives a detailed 2 page trade plan for Level 1 that it seems almost too easy.

Ha, I'll be in Level 2 tomorrow I first thought. Not so fast "youngster".

Level 1 is all about the details. If you can follow that Level 1 trading plan to the letter, yes, you'll probably be in Level 2 tomorrow.

For me, it took a bit longer as I was so used to just skimming that I did make a few mistakes and these were encouragingly corrected by Vance and the other traders.

I very soon realized that this was how I had been trading unsuccessfully for the past 3 years, skimming every new method and not taking the time to really follow any set checklist or plan. For the first time in my trading life I actually stuck to the plan, I made consistent profit and was promoted to Level 2.

The Level 1 process showed me how simple trading can be and gave me confidence in myself that I could follow a plan and that the plan works.

Victor Chamberlain

I just wanted to share my experience with the community! Ever since I joined the Forex Art of War program my life has changed for the better! Not only in my trading experience but in my personal life as well! I The principles that Vance teaches in the program! Can be applied to just about everything in your life! It makes you see things with another perspective! I am very thankful for all the help I have been receiving ! This program in my opinion is probably the best there is! And there are a lot out there! All I can say is "trust the program and the community as I have been doing and you"ll experience a life changing experience! From the bottom of my heart! Thank you Forex Art of War, thank you Vance, and thank you fellow members!

Sergio Madriz

TO Begin with. The name Forex Art of War stood out. At first I was very skeptical but remained open minded as I am with almost anything. So I read on and I saw the word "Love" in Vance's commentary. Then I listened to one of his live sessions and I was sold. Vance set the record straight from the get go making sure you understand the difference between "training and educating" and yes this is training (me doing and him watching) program. He builds rapport with all those who are willing, often sharing an event that he has personally experienced. I realize I am still an infant in this program and yes I have seen a few. I am sticking to it. Vance has mentioned that the philosophy behind "Forex Art of War" when applied properly should help me in other areas of my life. In conclusion I have come to realize life is an EXPERIENTIAL event. So why should FOREX trading be any different?

Consciousness is fundamental

I would like to comment on the training I have received from Vance. I am new to Forex trading and only joined Forex Art of War a month ago. I have learnt an incredible amount in a very should space of time, this is thanks to the structure of the program. Left to my own devices I am sure I would have plunged into live trading without the right skills or mindset to be successful. Thank you Vance for the guidance to date.

Brendan Boag

I'll be going to have my first year anniversary with Forex Art of War in couple weeks time. I have to say, things that I learnt from Vance and others through forum and live sessions, are truly enormous!

I started out as a novice in Forex without even knowing what PiP was. I knew I needed to start somewhere and when I searched online (out of hundreds of different Forex schools and forums), I found Forex Art of War which then caught my interest and joined as member in the end. At first I was worried and being very skeptical whether I will be in a conman forum that teach nothing but keep asking for additional school fee. With all those in mind, I started watching and reading all the materials that required by each level. To my surprise, I was able to get my trading plan done by the end of third month. To me, the real forex journey starts when I completed my first draft.

Once I completed the trading plan, I was instructed to start documenting demo trades using my trading plan. Unlike other forum where hundreds of people sharing one posting thread. In Forex Art of war, I got my own forum page and I can post any question and action on it. This help tremendously as I am able to keep track my learning progress and review anytime I want, without the worry that trainers will lose track of my posting due to overwhelmed responses on single thread.

Since then, I posted my trading setups on personal forum page and received comments from Vance, trainers and members in the forum. I was also designated one to one real time trade review sessions with Vance to refine my trading plan and logic. As at the point I am writing this post, I have completed three sessions and I am getting more and more confident with my trading plan. Not only success trades ratio, but also on the understanding of the whole game.

Well, my gut served me well. If not I will not be writing this sincere compliment to Vance and team. No doubt there are many forex schools provide good trading courses, but it is the continuous guiding and training process on one's trading journey that carry the true value. Forex Art of War is one true excellent program that carry this priceless jewel. In a nut shell, you will realised you are paying peanuts for a world class training program!

Thank you Vance, Rob, Oliver that provide valuable guidance and training to me selflessly. Not forget to mention all members in Forex Art of War that make this trading journey a wonderful and joyful one!

I would like to use one analogy that Vance frequently shared with us to close this posting. Learning to trade Forex is just like learning how to swing the baseball bat. Until you take initiative to start swinging the bat and allow the coach to correct you time over time, you will not become a world class player. No matter how many times you watch from world tournaments, training DVDs and books.

Success is not about what you know, is about what you do!

Wish all members in this forum and whoever read this posting a successful journey in forex! (including me of course! :D )

Clement Ngu

I have only been in training for 6 months with Forex Art of War and so far the experience has been great. There is a real feeling of accomplishment from the very 1st day. All of the advice and support during each step forward has been awesome. You learn to trade what you see from the charts and not pushed into trades that you have no idea what is happening or why.
Vance has a knack for bringing you and your mind into each trade with a good plan for entry and exit without any fear of the results.
The fact that other people and trainers are there to help and also learn from your trades is a wonderful thing.
Great platform and great people!

Rich Struss

Vance's coaching is awesome because he watches you trade and helps you develop your own style of trading that fits only to your personality. It has helped me tremendously and puts me in position to become a much much better trader.

jeff hsu

For me, having to place my trades online for everyone to see really makes a difference. I think about every aspect of the trade before I take it. If I wasn't posting I would probably be changing something every second trade. Initially I was concerned about posting a loosing trade and looking like a fool, but with all the positive feedback I have received I now have enough confidence to plan my trade and trade my plan.
Thanks everyone.


ForexArtofWar is your place to get coached and trained. There are many other trainers beside Sifu Vance are available to guide you.

I have gradually learn what was guided in the program and very happy with the progress. There are always new things to learn from each trade and live session.

Good job and many thank you to Sifu Vance for making this program. I certainly grateful to be here for so many months now.

Stevo Bravo

Hi Vance,

I want to thank you for a great course in Level 1 wherein I have learned a lot of things, especially on the basic of forex trading. It was really a paradigm shift for me on how I should look at the chart. So right now, I am quite excited in starting the Level 2 course.

Also, I want to thank the dedication of the trainers in providing me invaluable support to complete my course!


Nhoel Paine

I'd just like to comment on how critical this type of training and practice is.
The stories you here of Forex traders losing their accounts is a scary proposition when it comes to trading yourself. I have seen peoples accounts washed away.
This is a fear we all have.
But this training gets you right in the thick of things and your mistakes and learning curve are done in the correct way. In a practice account while learning.
No matter how good a trader you think you are, it's very hard to develop YOUR way of trading without set backs, not only with unsuccessful trades, but also the psychological damage that can be done to your approach.
My fear of trading is not an issue now. I trade and learn. I listen to comments from Vance and the trainers. They know how to develop your way of trading. The way you think. Your trading is meant to be an interpretation of what you see in the charts. The trainers are there to fine tune what you see to help you trade the setups that are interpreted by you. The most important part of the training is to follow your trading plan exactly. This is the only way you can develop.
Vance's training is by far the safest way to ultimately trade successfully. He teaches you how to trade, not his way, but yours.
I'm looking forward to learning more about what I see and how I can get transformed into a profitable trader.

Mark Fenech

I am here from 3 trading days and I wanted to share that it is absolutely enough for me to be sure that I am at the right place at the right time! I will list the thing which I find the most value in( much bigger value than the cost of the program - as I have lost about twice the size of the whole education here on a trade copier account for the fees and after the successful trader had 2 bad months and learned absolutely nothing about how to trade from this experience, just learned I should have to trust myself for trading in the future, at least if I do something wrong I will have the choice to correct it):
1. It's absolutely vital for a newbie trader like me to have the support and feedback from experienced and profitable traders like Vance, Oliver and Rob (please excuse me if I exclude someone as I have received feedback from them since my 3 days here). This could save you headaches( as I have very much of them when I was trying to cut my way through numerous systems and indicators looking for the holy grail. I used to get up early in the morning make my chart look like a 1 year-old kid drawing with 2413531 indicators and trying the new system... it much...).
2.The training here can save you much time(I cannot stress out how much time it can save as since I watched the videos in level 1 and level 2 I know now more about what I should do and more importantly what I shouldn't do in order to make a successful career in Forex, than I knew before even when I was reading all day long and practicing various systems and feeling in an dead end street)
3.Forex Art of War training can save you loads of money spent on systems and trade copiers. Believe me I know!
4.Actually I love the idea about the Sun Tzu's Art of War as this is a concept which is actually valid throughout the whole life. It can be applied as easily to health issues as it is to Forex trading. I love Vance's thinking which is holistic(considering every aspect that you effect your success and making yourself invulnerable(as Sun Tzu teaches) by strengthening every one of them to the max you can and then waiting for the right opportunity to present itself to strike and win.(not looking for reasons to enter the market here and there just to feel you are trading)
5. I would firmly encourage you to join Forex Art of War it is indescribably wonderful to feel part of a team which supports you in your way to success in this lonely in it's nature journey of Forex Trading.
6. I firmly stay behind my words if you have questions, feel free to contact me on
All the best to the team here and the future additions, can't wait to trade with you guys,
Aleksandar Michev

Gradually through the training levels I received great support from Vance and his team in developing my trading plan and learning to stick to it.
The constant feedback and regular evalutions of my trades motivates me to eliminate more and more marginal setups and those not in accordance to my trading rules. I recently accomplished my first series in level 4 (trading a live account) generating 5R (return of five times my risk) in a little over one month's period.
Hat's off to this extremely effective training.


Hi Vance,
Good evening, my name is Solomon I live in UK, Bristol. I started trading 2 years back I was always interested in forex and share and commodities. so after a few search I went and joined a coaching company and spend nearly £3000 for the course it self and after that I opened a broker account and got the charting from E-Signals and started to do some live trading with all the materials they have given me and taught. but I never really gained any thing only loosing money regularly. there was no consistency in my trading I lost a lot of my capital to cut short it didn't work. And this started to effect me a lot as it was hard to arrange the capital, all my plans went wrong this in a way effected in my family life as I stopped trading for a while to get my self back from what have happened . so after few months I stared it again hoping to do the right things. I started to look in the internet for proper advise and strategies. then I came across your web site and I been following your site for a while now and I really like your approach to coaching. so here I am. lets hope this time god will give the grace to succeed. I am aware with the basic but I am happy to go through all over again. Thanks Vance, speak to you soon.

Solomon Samuel

When I started with Forexartofwar, I didn’t really know what to expect as I had no previous experience in Forex. The first thing that caught my attention was the sense of community among Forexartofwar traders and Vance’s personal coaching. This community of traders is dedicated to making each other the best trader they can possibly be. For someone with no Forex experience, it has been tremendous for me to have all my questions answered and learn from traders from around the world. It is one thing to learn about Forex, but having a team that works tirelessly to ensure that you actually execute well what you have learned is unprecedented to me. I’m continuously encouraged to apply what I learn in classes by taking trades and posting them on forums. For each trade I post, I receive feedback from Vance and other traders with the intended purpose of making my next trade better. Forexartofwar is SIMPLY THE BEST, you guys ROCK!!!

Aime Mbakop

Vance and his team of trainers are the real deal. They are passionate and hold nothing back to help us achieve success. Sincere, knowledgeable, passionate. What else can you look for? :)

Welcome to the family.

Oscar Lim

Problems with technology will not stop Vance.

During my level 3 review of 10 trades, Internet connection issues meant that we could not hear each other. Undeterred we continued the meeting by a more old fashioned method - typing. "We should not let technology, stop us from getting things done" said Vance.
this man will go through any barrier to make you a successful trader.

Snap shot...
... ok, so I polished my trading plan, happily got the first 20 trades under my belt and... got stuck, infrequent trades, no profit, constant stress, and everybody else is doing so much better than me!

I had to confront what I least expected: expectation. I wanted more trades and more profit. After a couple of months of quarreling with frustration I finally was able to give in and let go.
Once I cared less about any individual outcome I could carry out my trading plan and take quality setups more easily. This felt very relaxed, and trading was fun again, and I can focus on what the market is telling me.

Without the support from Vance and Steven, and our great trading community, constantly reminding me to stick with my plan, I certainly would fall back and constantly tweak and change my setups, copy other successful traders, as it seems so enticing!

Having such an unmatched support during challenging times is just priceless!


I've written on here before, but I feel that I need to add to my experience here.
Trading on here under Vance's mentoring, has allowed me to break the shackles and really get into what's required to trade for a living.
Trading is a huge mental game and we are all our worst enemies when it comes to trading for consistent profit.
The training that Vance asks of us puts us on the front line. We have to learn with his methods. It's all about practice and developing a good, sound, practical method that is suited to you.
We all hear the horror stories about accounts being blown. We can make those mistakes here and not only learn from them, but be shown a better path.
I have tried for so long to be able to trade, reading books, using known methods, and a heap of cash on courses. I was really alone and trying to make sense of it. Even to the point I had doubts I could do it.
Art of War has given me the confidence to look at charts, to learn.
I have no doubt that in time, when I do the work, ask the questions, and become more experienced, I will be doing something I have always wanted to do.
I am keen to get involved in the live sessions as I have seen the quality of traders that were just like me.
I am confident of success simply because there is always someone there to help. Every aspect of trading is covered by Vance and his team.
I look forward to an exciting period of my life.
Thank you Vance.

Live sessions are a great place to watch learn and interact with other traders .There is great value in seeing other members trades ,asking what their thought process was ,what they were seeing .No matter how successful you trade ,others see things differently and have something to offer ,they have some insights you are missing . Because everyone here is trading their own trading plan that Vance has helped them put together ,you can see a wide variety of styles yet a common way to view the markets that lead to high probability trading .

So the old trading broker decided to upgrade their simple charts and didn't want to learn their new software, Thanks to Vance's video's i'm now up and running on the MT4 practice charts in less than an hour and comfortable using them. Very informative and to the point videos!

I am really excited to be here, I believe that I finally found what I was looking for, after spending more than $4000 in Software and programs never worked, I think this is a honest program that with all your support, I will be able to accomplish my goals. After I read 8 things they do not tell you about Forex trading I felt related to the motivations Vance had, spiritual and human issues. I have been following Jon Barron information for several years now, also there is a website that give us a better perspective about orthodoxy medicine vs. alternative medicine.

I've spent thousands of dollars over the past ten years on charting and trading programs. Most of them were too complex and complicated by filling up historical charts with technical indicators and spending to much time looking back at what had already occurred. I ended up confused, frustrated and indecisive in my trading. I suffered from what is commonly known as "Paralysis by Analysis" . Fortunately my son advised me to look into Vance Williams and his Forex Art of War. Vance's system of trading is so simple yet most effective. He uses a basic candle chart with 2 moving averages. His strategy is to enter a trade using the most repeated trading setup on a chart. Vance also teaches to make consistent winning trades you must understand and recognize what the trader sentiment is at the present time. He stresses that to make consistent profits you must focus on the process and not the outcome. This will eliminate most of the emotions that cause bad trading decisions to be made. Vance's approach to trading is simple and based on common sense, logic and the understanding of human nature. The Members Forum is a wonderful concept with fellow traders from all over the world posting trades, comments and helpful ideas. Thanks to Vance and his Forex Art of War training program I'm enjoying trading again. I highly recommend this to every trader looking to earn consistent profits.

I have been leaning to trade the Forex market for sometime without ever taking the plunge and trading for real. There can be a real fear to begin trading. So many theories and systems that you can follow. Follow is the key word here. It's not your system. Many people don't know how to start their trading in a way that will see them become profitable traders.
I have found learning and working with the Forex Art of War has given me a confidence to break out of the 'learning' only stage of trading.
You have to be active and get out there with your thoughts on a trade.
You have to let go of that fear and just move ahead. Start at the beginning. Make your mistakes now while you are learning and find your 'way' of trading with a sound base of knowledge that will allow you to grow as a trader.

For a novice, what's the big deal? Just buy and sell in Forex. So easy.
However, once you have gone through few weeks, you will find that Forex is no easy task.
There are plenty of elements needed to be considered. If there is no firm decision and plan, then, investment in Forex is as good as gamble in casino.

What is spread?
Money management - How big is the per entry lot?
What is high probability? Buy for up trend and Sell for down trend? etc...

There are tons to learn in Forex. Not that particular easy if you would want to live as day trader (full time trader). Training is needed so that your eyes are able to tune into opportunity, and entry follow the trading plan.

I have gone through Sifu Vance's guidance. I can tell, his trading plan is as easy as it can get. Easy to digest and practical. Learning curve can be shortened. Happy and grateful that I manage to join his class.

Stephen Chong

Having a one-on-one session or coaching with Vance really helps you have your trading plan's strengths and weaknesses pointed out. You will have your trades evaluated one by one and this really helps you segregate your high probability winning setups from the not. Writing any trading plan is easy... but developing a solid and consistently profitable one will take discipline, and a series of evaluation/reevaluation to hone it; and you can do so diligently with an experienced teacher like Vance.

Jonas Bacareza

Once you advance to level 3, you get to understand the value more of a clear trading plan, from there you can then evaluate how you actually trade not from system point but from a personal point, you get to know your real risk appetite, your fears about trading and what things you are bringing to the trading table that you were not aware of before. Even if you have successful strategy there are areas you can greatly improve in with Vance's help. Most of these areas you are unaware of .

Rob Carter

I just completed my first trade evaluation with Vance and I must say the experience was exceptional! I got a chance to learn from Vance directly without any distraction and was able to focus primarily on my weakest links and to improve all of them. There are times when I might have difficulties to share trading problems and doubts due to any reason under the sun. Yet, I never experience that with Vance. I would certainly recommend everyone to work with Vance personally to experience the ultimate training!

Two Thumbs Up!

This is far superior to any forex training I've found so far. It is probably the most comprehensive training available, because Vance covers all aspects of what it takes to be a successful trader. I'm astonished at how much my trading has improved in such a short period of time by using the Forex Art of War method. Vance has a genuine concern for his students, and he is willing to do all he can to make them successful.

Larry Refvik


I've been studying FOREX and doing some light trading over two years, I've paid for training by other FOREX educational organizations, what I have received from Vance and his team has been remarkable! Not only does Vance teach FOREX as a student I've had to put into practice those principles demonstrating my understanding of what's being taught. Vance, his team, and other students then provide feedback to my trade further educating and reassuring me of what I know or providing clarification on something I may not be quite clear about.

I've enjoyed the website, educational material, and the structure of the training program; demonstrating a good understanding of the material before moving on.

I look forward to continue learning, fine tuning my understanding of the market and price action, and structuring a trading plan that will enable me to be consistently profitable in the market.

Levels 1, 2, and 3 are the necessary steps/levels for you to become proficient in forex trading. You will get through these with Vance's dedicated coaching and support. This is worth much more than most other training out there since this focuses on you gaining consistent profits.

Jonas Bacareza

Being from different walks of life I figure most of our experiences in FOREX trading is also different. However, within this forum I would lean towards a similar set of experiences.

My situation is a outside of what most would consider normal. I am stuck at home due to an illness that I've had for the last six months. I searched for sometime for the right fit for me to learn how to trade. Once I found the FOREX Art of War program there was an instant connection. The information presented was not gimmicky, nor were there promises of wealth and fortune. I was not looking for a sales pitch. I was looking for an honest, straight forward education and I found it.

I have been most impressed with the patience shown to me through learning this process over the last two and a half months. There are times I have cognitive struggles due to side effects and other times when I am in bed for two or three days. Each time I come back from a set back of that nature, Vance has always been there to get me back up and running again. Being an instructor in a couple of sports, I understand the long suffering it takes to continue with someone who has continual struggles in a program. Additionally, there have been several comments made by other members that have pointed out when I need a correction in my thought process and when I have done well.

Today, I am in level 3 and just submitted the first of my second set of ten trades. During my first ten trades I learned so much from my mistakes that I feel confident that my percentage of successful set ups and overall wins will increase. I am excited to continue my education in FOREX trading with Vance and Steven through what is, in my opinion, the best way to learn FOREX trading, FOREX Art of War.

I encourage any who have been trading, any who wants to trade, or any who simply want to become more educated about the market to go through the FOREX Art of War program with Vance and Steven. It will be worth every minute and every cent.

I stumbled across Forex Art of War on Facebook and thought I would take a look. I am naturally extremely wary about taking any training courses in Forex as I know that there is a lot of “rubbish” out there and people just after your money. After watching some of the introduction videos and looking at some of his uploads to YouTube, I decided that this was genuine and could be just what I was looking for.

How happy am I that I made that decision. For the first time in my trading career I am starting to feel that I am actually making progress, and I don’t mean slowly, I mean real progress. The program is simple with really one goal – consistent profit, using one set up that is repeated over and over again.

Vance’s training style is totally interactive, he answers all your questions promptly, no matter how stupid you think they are (and I have asked a lot) and there is also help from the community who are there supporting everyone along. Its great – the best Forex experience I have had.

Dan Cherry

If you are dedicated, disciplined, and persistent... Forex Art of War is one of the best if not the best programs out there to learn how to create consistent profits trading Forex. They have a website where you are strongly encouraged to post ALL your set ups and entries to trades and then post the results... this gives me a unique level of accountability because before I send something out to our trading community, I have carefully thought it out because I know it will be looked at and commented on by other traders and Vance.

David Wingo

Forex Art of War live sessions with Vance are one of the most efficient and interactive ways to accomplish the goal of consistent profit. The live sessions provide a platform for all participants internationally to discuss and analyze the market, both in the past and real time.

Danny Mac

This Forex Art Of War education is excellent i personally think. I have been mentored before about forex, however what i found out was that Vance actually explains WHY we follow the rules. Every rule in this system is accompanied by a lot of psychological and financial explanation. No other mentor has ever taught me about repetitive human behaviour in the financial markets. Other mentors would simply tell me "sell when X happens" in a certain way, whereas Vance thoroughly explains WHY it is that i execute a trade at a certain time. This enabled me to understand the art of trading and reading what the charts are telling me. This eventually lead me to question more about the charts and allowed me to sculpt my own strategy based on Vance's knowledge.

Vance also shows that he is eager to help out. Any question, any time is answered thoroughly be it via Skype, email or my forum. Another aspect i admire is that, Vance never blatantly disagrees with your opinion. He just recommends alternative means of doing it, and explains why this way is better. Which i think is the most professional facet of this programme.

In my 3 months on this programme I dont have a single complaint, which is a surprise because im usually very critical about things I invest alot of money in. Vance not only changed how i act as a trader, but also influenced my everyday life as the Sun Tzu principles can be applied to many things in life.

I could go on, but i think thats enough :)
Best investment of my life, hands-down.

Shady Attia

Totally worth every single second and penny with Forex Art of War!

Vance's Art of War trading principles and training allows a person with totally zero knowledge like myself to complete his first trading setup in just one day! Not forget to mention the interactivity of the website forum. It is indeed a great platform that allows me to learn and exchange trading experience with other members.

Although I only have three months experience in Forex but I have confidence in Vance's coaching and can foresee how successful I will be as a great trader not only focus on consistent profit, more importantly, with great personality as well.

Thanks Vance for all your unselfish knowledge and time sharing. Two thumbs up! :D

Clement Ngu

Vance has taught me something in such a small amount of time that i thought would take years to learn, although i am not a professional i think that time taken per experience level is remarkable and this trading strategy actually works! (my only concern when signing up). If you are committed and willing to learn then this is for you.

Cameron Upton

Trading is not about the markets or a system, it is about knowing yourself, your default way you see things. Once you get this and you take the steps to know "you" .Then you can become a trader. In my years at the wheel so to speak, I have never come across a forex training designed for that purpose till this one bar none.
I have researched, traded, designed, bought, begged, borrowed anything I could to learn and to some extent it all has its own value, but when you add yourself/me into the mix no matter what you do the "you" will be the thing that stops their usefulness. Vance has great trading knowledge but his objective is sustained profitable trading and he fully understands why traders fail. He will design a trading style that suits you, a style that is you. The real difference you will find here is your ability to be profitable is paramount, it's usually the other way round, take my word for it, there is quite a bit of my money elsewhere that will never see the insides of my wallet again, if you get what I mean.
Besides all that, it's a great community .

Rob Carter

I have taken training classes for trading stocks and investing in real estate. I wish they were as hands on as Vance is. I did receive a lot of assistance while in the course but I wasn't able to analyse my trades as quickly. It was sometimes 2-3 months before we were able to go over our trades and by then you weren't able remember all the emotions that happened during the trade.
Vance's techniques are awsome. They are easy to understand and well worth the money.
This forum also gives traders a chance to reach out and talk about trading which I believe is a key to success.
I don't keep in touch with anyone from my stock trading courses anymore. I also don't believe any of them are actively trading because they don't have a support group like this.

Thanks Vance for all your help
