The Trading and Investing Expo is our industries roadshow of all that is new and exciting in wealth creation here in Australia. Combined with the Property expo; the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre was the best place in town for those proactively interested in bettering their financial future. Although the attendance was lower than expected; it was apparent how well the folks in Perth are doing with the mining boom in full swing. As the only specialist Forex educator at the show, we had many interested people visit our stand and we had fun answering their many questions on how to manage their growing wealth.
It was clear from talking to other exhibitors and attendees that property is the big thing in Perth. Although Forex was new to many everyone was keen to learn more at our Perth workshop this coming 26-27 May. There were also a few day traders who sprung up and wanted to learn more about strategies and advanced analysis. These people were very engaging and we had some great discussions with people who are passionate about their trading. One special moment was meeting a 27 year old plumber/electrician who is putting in the hard yards in the mines. With great pride, he explained the spread sheet he has kept since he was 16 years old, detailing all his expenses and revenues so he could manage his money better! He was very interested in learning how to trade Forex successfully as he wants to diversify his portfolio and take control of his financial future.
We met a few burnt traders, who had sadly jumped into the Forex market without the parachute of education. We provided these people with a few simple risk management techniques and I hope they attend a course soon so they can become more profitable in the future. One young man approached me me wanting a job; he had a brokers report showing he turned $250 into $1500 in 7 days using Forex, an incredible result, we swapped details and I wish him all the best and perhaps we will be working together in the near future.
Finally, congratulations to our prize winners Juliana and Julian who won a Samsung 24-inch monitor each and to our major prize winner Phillip, who won an education packaged valued at $12,995!
