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.

Founder & CEO
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.

In The Press
Our CEO, Nirav Shah at CNBC, discussing WorldSpreads in special administration.
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.
