Personal Support - Mentoring, Trading Principles and Guidelines

Platinum mentors bring to our clients their several years of professional trading experience. Few of the trading principles and guidelines that our mentors quote often during the One-to-One mentoring sessions, Daily Webinars and on the Live Trading Floor are:

  • Forex trading is not a get rich quick scheme. It is a process. Learn, plan, practice and perfect it.
  • If you suffered loss, take a break, revisit the trading plan and commence work the next day.
  • Know your own risk. Never trade money that you cannot afford to lose.
  • When in doubt, stay out. There will be plenty more trades coming our way.
  • Be patient. Take action at the right time.
  • Remember that commitment is what separates the 2% from the rest 98%.
  • Keep your trading journal updated. Note down your mistakes and achievements.
  • Never overtrade. The more trades you enter, the more you risk.
  • Never revenge trade if your trade fails.
  • Markets go up and markets go down. When you know how to trade them, it makes no difference whether there is an economic boom or economic catastrophe.
  • Always study the fundamentals first for any currency and then move on the technicals to give yourself a true edge to trading currencies with precision.
  • If you made very good profits today, forget about more trading for the day. Spend quality time with the family.
  • Enjoy the excitement of work tomorrow.

If you want to make money from trading, you need to be able to profit from what the institutions do. This system shows you setups which are so consistently profitable it’s quite scary! I’ve been trading for two years and I’ve never felt more comfortable trading than with this. It’s quite simple, it will make you money!

Mr. D. Griffin – Member since October 2015

I have been trading the financial markets since 2009 and have not had any consistency in trading as I have learned all the wrong methods. After joining Platinum and under the guidance of the Platinum Team, I learned that times frames do not exist and now am a full-time trader and have nearly recouped all the money I spent on learning Forex in just 9 months. Absolutely amazing.

Jeff Lee

I used to be just a typical retail trader looking at short term charts, using indicators and trying to guess where the markets would turn around, I had no luck working this way and couldn’t understand why I’d read the books, I’d been to the webinars and seminars and listened to the same people say the same things over and over again and then I came to a Platinum Webinar and my eyes were truly opened, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing but it made so much sense but was unlike anything I’d ever heard.

This is vital to making money in the markets. I can’t thank you guys enough. You’ve made a huge difference to my trading and profitability.

Peter Tulley

I was a total newbie to trading and had looked at various trading systems, robots, signal services none of which I had any faith in until I contacted Platinum. I was very happy to discover such a professional approach and it’s refreshing to actually have people that you can call on that really have been there and done it, you can really tell that the guys have had a lifetime of experience in trading. If you want to understand how the banks really trade I would recommend Platinum to anyone, thank you for a truly great experience.

Neil Potter

After taking on the Platinum Trading System, I have realized that there was so much that I didn’t understand about how the institutions trade in the market. Being with Platinum has really opened my eyes to what really goes on in the markets. Previously, I was your typical retail trader, low time frames, multiple indicators, too many currencies, lack of knowledge, I was on the verge of giving up trading, but wow what a turn around in such a short space of time, I have enjoyed every moment so far and long may it continue into 2015.

Like most aspiring traders, I have had highs and lows, spent a not so small fortune on training courses. So much so that I had taken time away from trading fed up and despondent. Since happening across Platinum, I can say that my enthusiasm has returned and my faith reinstated. So far, strategies being consistent has eluded me.

I got the Platinum trading system a few months ago and I absolutely love it. I have been trading for about 2 years now and up until I started with the Platinum system, I wasn’t really getting anywhere, but now I am winning 8 out of every 10 trades. I myself use to read these testimonials and think it was just the company writing them, but I am a genuine customer and the system really does work and my mentor has been very very helpful with me, always on the end of the phone when you need him.

Our Leaders

Nirav Shah

Founder & CEO

Nirav Shah

Nirav’s passion is to arm retail traders with the correct tools and knowledge about how the markets function in the real world, allowing them to have the same professional mindset that institutional traders have. His trading philosophy is one of low risk, high probability trading, a style that needs patience and discipline but brings great rewards. He is always eager to share his vast experience with anybody who is committed enough to learn how to trade professionally.

More about Nirav ....

Nirav’s keen interest in the financial markets was passed down from his father who worked for some of London's most prestigious stock traders at institutions such as ICAP, Bank of America and Citibank.

Nirav Shah has been a professional trader since 2001. Understanding that retail and institutional trading are poles apart, he immersed himself in the world of trading and surrounded himself with traders from the institutional world, developing many professional relationships along the way. Having worked alongside Bank traders, he discovered what made them tick, how they analyzed the markets, and what they looked for when they trade he then applied this to trading in retail markets to great success. He turned a sum of £50,000 into £6,50,000 at a steady rate in 6 years of trading.

In 2008, Nirav started developing an algorithm in collaboration with experienced institutional traders. Over the next two years, he spent well over £500,000 and exhaustive hours for research and development to create an algorithm that would study 18 indicators and combine them with the Institutional Order Flow to bring high profitability confirmed entry points with clearly marked buy and sell zones. This is how the Platinum Trading System came into existence.

His price action technical analysis skills are highly sought after and he has been hired on many occasions by large financial institutions wishing to take advantage of his forward market projections and helping them to implement their trading strategies. Nirav has been a commentator on CNBC about the financial markets, and has written many trading articles for some of the world's best known financial publications.

Many retail traders approached Nirav to asking him what they were doing wrong and why were they not able to produce consistently profitable results with their trading and how the traders at the banks and major financial institutions were so successful. Understanding that 99% of retail traders, though no fault of their own have no idea about how the banks trade the markets, Nirav formulated the Platinum Methodology to bring the Institutional world to the retail trading world, thus shedding light on what was essentially a closed book.

Dr. Jayesh Mehta


Dr. Jayesh MehtaIn concert with Nirav’s goals to impart institutional trading knowledge to retail traders, Dr. Mehta is keen on developing an organization that is a power-house for trading education. The Platinum trading training mandates patience, and an ardent desire to succeed. Dr. Mehta brings an immense desire and organizational skills to help a novice trader to succeed at the arcane business of trading.

More about Dr. Mehta ....

Although relatively new to Forex trading, Dr. Mehta is not a stranger to the world of investments and financial markets. Periodically, he has worked for financial advisors, such as Quest Capital Strategies, and Valmark Securities helping clients to develop investment strategies. Academically, also Dr. Mehta shares Nirav’s passion for developing algorithmic strategies financial instruments, options, and derivatives. As a part of his MBA in financial engineering at Xavier University, Dr. Mehta had developed and published several peers reviewed papers on Black-Scholes options model in coveted financial journals.

Dr. Mehta is an innovator and a passionate financial analyst who has turned his attention now to the intricate world of trading. With Nirav’s par-excellence’ skills in equity and foreign currency trading, Dr. Mehta plans to apply his organizational skills to benefit an inexperienced trader to reach immeasurable financial success.

Our History


A structured approach using strategies and principles were introduced in financial institutions and for brokers to promote disciplined trading. The popularity and more importantly the success of such Institutional methods of trading prompted the research and development of the Platinum Trading System for individual Forex traders in the retail market.

After speaking to several retail traders, we discovered that they are taught to be time-frame and indicator dependent. This is what Institutional traders are taught not to do even before they start to trade. At Platinum, we have chosen to share our Institutional knowledge with Retail traders in order to show them how the world of trading really works in order to help them succeed and fulfill their aspirations of becoming professional traders.

3 years of exhaustive and collaborative effort between a number of successful professional and institutional traders with over 35 years combined experience produced the Platinum Confluence Matrix Algorithmic Trading System in 2009.

Since the development of the unique Confluence Matrix, Platinum has grown and developed to its present day. After Platinum Trading Academy secured its position in the list of "The 17 Best Forex Training Courses for Beginners", Platinum Trading Institute was established in the United States to provide Forex education to beginners as well as experienced traders and guide retail traders toward their path to becoming successful Forex traders.
