Beware the Instatraders!

London Investment Week Newsletter23rd August 2021 | #273Dear Simom,
Beware of the Instatraders!
Earlier this month I had the misfortune of catching the last 20 minutes of a BBC Three documentary entitled ‘Instatraders’.
The journalist was exploring the growing number of forex education companies that are recruiting clients though slick instragram and TikTok posts.
Not only did all the educational content on offer seem decidedly ‘iffy’ to say the least, but it appeared (from numerous testimonials from ex-customers) that the real business was multi-level marketing and before they knew it, clients were encouraged to bring in family and friends, in return for a commission.
Is this news? Sadly not. It’s been going on for years, and one of the reasons I’ve tried to help traders to meet a better standard of educator/service provider through our Round the Clock Trader Network.
But what did surprise me was the age of the typical customer – early to mid-twenties at the most!
Surely these young people will find it hard to trust the financial markets again having been taken in at such an early age.
With all the regulation we must put up with these days, it still seems the most questionable companies still pervade social media platforms 24 hours a day and use any number osf so called ‘influencers’ to part youngsters from their money.
I’d be interested to hear your comments – you can watch the BBC Three documentary on iPlayer here –
