Is Rob Booker Forex Training Any Good?

This is a question I receive often and unfortunately I can no longer give an honest answer which is the only answer that I ever want to give. This is due to the fact that I haven’t dedicated myself to Rob Booker’s training since 2006 making my experiences outdated. The good news is that over the coming months, I will be able to give you an honest opinion because I am in the initial phases of giving his tutelage another go. This is possible because he has no expiration date on his training. According to his training contract, "You have as long as you need. You never have to pay me anything again…."

At first glance, there have been many changes to his training. His chart school, which are Rob’s trade ideas for students in video format appear to be more interactive. He provides a web conferencing platform where any of his students can attend and ask questions via messenging or voice. Other basic course materials seem unchanged such as the course introduction, FX basics, backtesting, support and resistance, moving averages, and similar topics. These are really basic though and I don’t see any reason why these would ever change. The course materials are also for the totally inexperienced forex trader, someone who has really never explored Forex outside of this course.

His primary trading system which has many components to it is called the Arizona Rules. He was just developing this system back when I lost interest in his training so I haven’t really explored it. If anything, it seems like Rob’s attempt is to provide his students with a well tested and possibly profitable trading system while also providing a comprehensive trading plan and system that one can take knowledge from to develop their own forex trading system.

I’m just getting involved again so I cannot comment further at this time but keep checking back here in the upcoming days and weeks for more details on Rob Booker Training. You can also read my previous and new experiences at

    Looking forward to hearing this. I’m reading the other Booker related articles now. I hope the issues of having a mentor will improve my trading as well. I listen to Rob’s radio show- not bad…

    Thanks for the info – I can’t wait for more details. I’m also looking at Forex Profit Accelerator by Bill Poulos, but I’m not sure if it’s any good. I did enroll in a contest to get a free copy though.

    Who knows maybe I’ll win!

    I paid the 1,000 bucks to do the one on one training (not really one on one anymore). I’ve been going to his website and using the material plus reviewing the daily chart school videos. I feel like the money was worth it. I’m still not profitable, but I’m not losing as much money as I used to either. I feel like the one on one training was a step in the right direction for me. Just my two cents.

    I feel his program is well worth it. The insight that I get from the chart school about 9 times a week from professional traders is invaluable.

    I think his course material is designed in a systematic way which will really help us to make the trading system successful.

    Oh My GOD , I hate that I am late on this, I thought this was hilarious when I saw the title, lol. Not that I have any opinion on the gentleman.

    Back when I was shopping for signals, I was never compelled to sign up with him. But I have high levels of respect for the guy. He must have done something wonderful to warrant this much attention.

    When I first started Robs training I was not very impressed with the training material. It’s a wiki page with some guidelines on the trades and other good training. The real value is the chart schools where the training is better explained. The instructors are awesome and very patient because they know everyone is learning. I use Robs system and I’m a profitable trader, but I will tell you that there isn’t a magical system after you purchase the training. I think the $1000 or so is a great deal.

    Wow! I am a new fan of Rob’s radio show and its not that bad. And I’m sure many will also like the show the way I do. Keep up the job your helping a lot of people including me thanks.

    Did anyone get Rob’s latest email about a student of his that made an average of 2000 pips PER WEEK in 2008 and 11000 pips in one week in November? I to have been sitting on the fence with regards to buying the 1 on 1 with Rob (for years), don’t know why, he is always professional and yes, he does reply to emails. I guess I’m just a bit reluctant to part with money again and find a system that gets shelved with all the others I’ve paid good money for
