Can you really make lots of money through trading?

Can you really use trading to retire and have a nice monthly income coming in?

Is it possible to create an income through trading to replace your full-time job and be financially free?

More importantly, can you still trade in today’s economy. With the COVID-19 and all the market crashes?

These are the kind of questions that I get asked a lot and more now ever since the outbreak of the virus.

After having close to 20 years of trading experience, 12 years of training banks and institution traders and teaching nearly a 100,000 people all over the world, I guess I’m qualified enough to give an honest take on this.

Since 2000, I’ve been a full-time trader. What I call a lifestyle trader, adapting trading to my lifestyle with just 1 hour a day spread about. No bosses telling me what to do, planning my day based on my own schedule, going on holiday like literally tomorrow.

Trading has given me the ability to work from home and anywhere in fact (with just a laptop and an internet connection), while spending time with my family and kids and doing the things I enjoy.

Living life on my own terms, not restricted by normality where to wake up, start work, end work, get home, eat, and sleep for 5 days. Rest on the weekend, repeat for the rest of your life until you have saved enough money to retire.

Straits Times Interviews Ezekiel Chew:

Here’s the thing.

In order to get out of the rat race…

…the key is to be financially free.

Yes, I hear you saying: “Become financially free? You’ve got to be kidding!”

Bear with me now when I say it’s easier than what you are probably thinking.

Being financially free is all about having an income that covers your expenses.

I’m not saying you need to be a multi-millionaire to retire and not do anything.

So long as you have an income coming in – say a passive income or an income that doesn’t take up a lot of your time. And that income can cover your monthly expenses.

You are financially free!

For example, if you have monthly household expenses of $5k a month. If you have an income stream coming in that covers that $5k. In essence, you are financially free. You can choose not to work because you can now live without working.

Some of the common passive income stream methods:

Property rental – Property investment and rentals are one of the most popular investment vehicles out there. Having said that, properties are expensive. Especially in places like Singapore. And the rental yield that you get can hardly allow you to retire unless you own a couple of properties.


Stock Dividends – Dividends range from stock to stock and they typically generate about 4-6% a year. Now that’s not too bad. But how much capital do you need to have for you to rely on the dividend yield to retire? If you are able to accumulate enough millions throughout your time, this is one nice vehicle to potentially own.


An online business – Pros: You can do it from your home with minimum cost. And when done right, your profit margin is really high when compared to bricks and mortar businesses out there. So you do see many people living a good life while working on their home business. That said, the competition is crazy online nowadays. As of now, there are 12-24 million ecommerce stores around the world. And only 650k are making more than $1000 US annually. So you’ve got to be really good at what you are doing to rise above the competition.


Value investing – Now investing in stocks for the long term is a sound practice. Warren Buffet and many other successful investors do it. In today’s world, if your stock grows at 5% a year, it’s considered a pretty good growth that year, isn’t it? But here’s the food for thought, how long do you need to accumulate and grow before you have enough money to finally retire?

That’s why they say, when you are rich. You invest in stocks. Because a 5% return on a few millions is good money. But 5% of a 100k? Well you made $5k that year. Is it good, yeah? That’s not bad. Will it make you rich? Hardly.


That’s why trading is one of the most lucrative ways to really grow your money from small to big. Look, my thoughts may be biased, I know that. Because that’s what I’ve been doing for half of my life. But hear me out.

In the video below I break down the way that full-time traders use to make and grow their money from trading.

Trading when done right coupled with compounding will make you more money than any of the vehicles out there.

But don’t get all too excited now. Because let me share the stats with you.

Around 90% of traders don’t make money.

Thus only around 10% of traders do.

But that’s also the same as all trades going. Only 10% of the businesses are still around after 10 years.

Only 10% of the stock investors actually make really good money.

What happens to the rest of the 90%?

Well… to put it simply.

They probably didn’t learn this skill well enough.

I became financially free in my twenties. Now reaching my forties, trading has allowed me to see things from a different point of view. Life is not just all about work. Life has so much more meaning to it. And all that’s possible is because from a young age I chose to learn and practise this skill called trading. And because of that, I do not need to run in the rat race like everyone else. No bosses to face. Not being affected by the economy cycle. Crap, it doesn’t even require you to have good grades. Because studies can only get you so far. A skill like trading, on the other hand, can make you financially free.

The question is – Will you put in the initially hard work to master a skill that makes you money for life?

A skill that you can pass down to your next generation?

Yes, it’s a yes. I will now tell you all the honest ins and outs of this trade.

The myths and reality of this industry.

Here are some frequently asked questions:

What is trading?

There are many ways to trade on the market. Trading can be performed on vehicles such as forex, stocks, commodities, indexes, cryptos and many more.

There are three main ways to trade: technical, fundamental, and a combination of both.

Technical is where traders look at the charts, analyse them and spot setups to enter and exit.
When done in a systematic way, it can be very profitable, and it can be adapted to your lifestyle.

Let’s say you have a full-time job right now, the position which most of my students were in when they first started.

We will then either spend around 1 hour in the morning or at night spotting for setups. Set an alert at our setup area so that, during the day, when the market reaches our setup location, we will become alerted and we enter the trade on our mobile, which probably takes around 5 minutes.

So trading, when done right, doesn’t take you a lot of time. In fact, it’s like a part-time job: 1-2 hours a day. And this part-time job when done right can probably make you more money than your full-time job.

Fundamentals are where traders read the news items and analyse them, e.g. the presidential election, Brexit, or the popular news to traders – the ‘non-farm payroll’ – which is news of unemployment data from the US every first Friday of the month. Thus fundamental traders analyse the news and implement a strategy to enter and exit.

A combination of both

Most traders in this age are a combination of both, but it ranges in percentage, say 80% technical 20% fundamental. Or another could be 70% fundamental, 30% technical.

Either way, it’s about finding what works for you.

For me and my students, it is a combination, albeit more technical in terms of percentage.
Having traded for so long, I tend to understand that even if it’s ‘good news’, the market can still go down, and vice versa. So we look at the technicals to understand what the traders are doing, whether they are buying or selling. Then we trade inline based on our strategy and system.

All this may sound complicated if you are new to trading, but trust me, It’s really not that hard to understand once you learn it my way.

“Ezekiel makes understanding trading so easy that even a kid can learn it” – that’s what my students say.

And if my primary first and second year kids can understand it, I say you can do it too if you put in the heart and commitment.

What is forex trading?

Forex or FX trading refers to foreign exchange trading. It’s the trading of currency.

For example, the USA’s currency is USD.
Japan’s currency is JPY.
Singapore’s currency is SGD.

In the forex market, you have pairs like the USDJPY. Where the US dollar pairs with the Japanese yen.

Say, for example, for some reason, the JPY drops. The pair USDJPY will thus go up.
And if the USD drops, the pair USDJPY will go down.

You get the point.

Therefore, what we as traders do is this: We look at the pair USDJPY and analyse where it will potentially go. Then based on our strategy that is in line with our system, we execute the trade with an entry point and an exit point.

For example, we risk maybe 1% of our capital on this trade. And if it goes up to our target point, we get out – with a risk reward ratio of 1:2. This means that if we trade, we are looking at twice the risk for our profits. So if the trade wins, we make 2%. But if it loses, we only lose 1%.

By this method alone, one win can cover two losses. Thus making trading more predictable, profitable and safer with a suitable system like the one above.

Of course, the above factors just cover the basics of what we do. But you get the point. Professionals trade in a very systematic way, just like running a business. It’s so systematic that it gets boring. At the end of the day, trading is just about entering the trades that meet your trading plan (part of your system). Following the right system, you have the skill of making money from trading for life.

Why is trading good in times of crisis?

Trading is not like the stock market where people can buy a share of the company but if the market crashes, like what’s happening now, then they are screwed.

When we trade, we can buy and we can sell. There’s literally no difficulty in selling the market. It’s 100% the same as how we buy it.

Therefore, in times of crisis, we will more than likely decide the sell the stock, index, oil, Aussie dollar, etc.

And if it drops, our risk reward ratio can be really good. Like more than 1:2, maybe even 1:10 or 1:25.
Because here’s the thing, when the market drops, it drops big time.

So if we lose, we lose just 1%. But if we win, we win 10%.
And what if we increase our risk percentage to 3% a trade?
If we lose, we lose 3%. But if we win, we win 30%.

How’s that?

And here’s the thing… traders have been waiting for times like this (Recessions) for a long time.

Because it’s during times like this. The most money are being made.

New millionaires and billionaires are created during this period.

Times like this don’t occur very often, but when they do… You will want to be in.

If you miss the train now, you have gotta wait another 10+ years for the next downturn.

The golden train is here… are you onboard?

“Made 70,000$ in 1 year after AFM program.”


“Made 30% growth in 40 days after AFM program”


“Get ready to learn from one of the World’s Most Successful Trader.”

Sam Manning

“Profit USD$30k – USD$65k in just two month after AFM program.”


What are the trading hours like?

There are indeed traders who stare at the screen all day, entering and exiting many trades during the day. These traders likely trade in the minute timeframe and they are called scalpers.

Now there’s nothing wrong with that. If they have a good system and it works for them, that’s great!

But here’s the thing, it’s not something that I do. Why? Because there’s no life in that. What’s the difference of staring at the screen 8 hours a day and regular work? Yes, the money may be better, but still… That’s not for me.

So what I do is what I call lifestyle trading.

Where I adapt trading to my lifestyle, not my lifestyle to trading.

I wake up when I please. And then start the day by planning setups for the day. I set the alerts so that my phone will ring when the market reaches my setup area.
That probably takes about 30 minutes.

I go about the day doing my own stuff.

And then my phone rings with the trade alert.

I will check the trade, and, if it meets my system criteria. I will execute the trade – buy or sell. Set my stop loss and profit target.

And then go on with my day.

The way I trade doesn’t take up a lot of time. You can still have your day job if you want while you are learning this skill, and when the income from trading starts to be more than what you are bringing in, you can decide to quit because, by then, you are ‘financially free’. You now have the skill to generate an income that covers your expenses and more. And all that takes is a minimum of your time, leaving the rest of the day doing the things you never thought of doing before. Like a new hobby, charitable work, holiday, time with family – anything you like!

What skills are needed?

You know, you need to study 7 years to be a doctor, followed by years of practice before you finally make some good money.

Lawyers too need years of study before applying for the bar. And that’s just the beginning of a long period of time before they finally make the big bucks.

CEOs need years and years before they climb up the corporate ladder.

Trading? It doesn’t need any qualifications. No degrees, masters, or PHDs required.

What it demands:

A committed person who is dedicated to learning the ropes. It’s not hard, but it definitely takes time and effort to learn them.

A disciplined person who will apply and stick to the system. One who won’t be swayed by other fanciful trading, or small profits here and there. You will need to stick to the overall game plan, the business of profitable trading.

Someone who is not afraid of failure. Like all business, it’s about applying, then failing, learning from your mistakes, and then repeating the process until you become successful.

When you are able to do all the above, that’s when you know you are ready to learn this money-making skill for life.

But of course, like all things, if you have a mentor, or someone who is successful in his/her own right guiding you throughout your learning process – you will be able to pick up this skill so much easier, faster and it will also save you money (from the accounts busted through poor choices).


How long is the learning process?

In extreme cases, I have people who, after learning my system, went and implemented it immediately – they saw significant profits within the week.

Now… We are not here for a short-term profit. What matters is are you able to make it profitable consistently.

We have heard too many stories of people making loads of money in a month but only to lose it all after that.

The way we trade is not by going for a million bucks in a month. It’s about making a stable, consistent and high income that makes you financially free.

And when you accumulate and compound those profits, that’s where the magic happens.

Through my years of trading and coaching, I found that you will need an average of 6 months plus or minus to pick up the ropes, apply the skills and tweak them along the way until you find some success. However, please note that this is a person who is committed to learning and practising during these 6 months.

People who are committed would have found some success by then. And the rest will have dropped out along the way searching for the next shiny item.

Trading is a skill.

It takes time and dedication to learn and master this skill.

But when mastered, it will feed you for life and is a skill you can pass down to your future generations.

Is it worth spending the time and effort to learn this skill?

Only you can answer this.

But if you are the type that gives up easily, then no, it’s not for you. Trading needs someone who is persistent, who doesn’t give up, someone who is committed to making it work. Then success will come to you.

Can I learn trading online?

Yes – if you are talented. Without the need of people pointing you in the right direction. Then yes, everything can be learnt online.

But you need to follow the right person, the right system and then tweak it to fit your own personality, routine, habits and trading style.

Can I learn trading from courses and seminars?

Absolutely, in fact, that’s what I did years back. I was the pioneer in teaching trading. I used the seminar format to teach large classes for a 2-3 day programme.

It worked, I had students who became full-time traders and some even became fund managers.

Here are the pictures of just some of the Forex Trading seminars I held in my earlier days

But here’s the thing…
…I stopped.



I’ll be truthful to you. As much as you can learn in the 2-3 days. And as much as I can teach in the 2-3 days…


…I honestly don’t know what happens after my students leave.


Did they take action after the seminar?


Did they trade?


Did they trade correctly?


You see, everyone can learn the same thing during the 2 days. But there will be some who will be more successful than the others.


So what makes the difference?


It’s not what you learn. Everybody learnt the same thing during the seminar/course just like all the seminars and workshops out there.


It’s how you implement it along that way that makes the difference.


And that’s the reason why I stopped teaching large seminars.


The thing is, if I really want to make sure that they are successful…


…it’s the follow up that’s needed.


Making sure they are trading correctly. Pointing out mistakes and answering their questions and doubts along the way. Showing them the right way to trade on the market. Tweaking them along the way to increase their ROI.


Here’s an important fact that separates a professional trader from a not so profitable one.


The fact is: No two traders are the same


Because… everyone is different. We think differently and react differently and execute differently.


Moreover, we could be trading at a different time, with a different capital size and different risk appetite. All these factors play a huge part in trading.


Which is why in order for you to be profitable, you have to understand yourself and understand well enough when on the market to know how to customise a trading plan for you – one that fits your personality, lifestyle and trading habits.


It’s not easy, truth be told… Which is why most new traders don’t make it even after attending courses.


Therefore, customisation is the key. And aside from that, you need someone who has been trading long enough to point out your mistakes, see exactly how you have been trading and to tell you if the way you have been trading will, or will not, work.


If it doesn’t, then you should probably stop right away instead of funding your account again and again only to keep on blowing it. And if it works, what exactly should you do to keep having consistent profits and what you need to do to increase the ROI?


In short, to really find success in trading, the ideal scenario is you have a professional by your side mentoring you along the way.


If not, it will take lots of time and money to figure this out by yourself.


That’s the reason why most people drop out along the way.


But as you can see… All the above not only takes time but also a huge commitment from the mentor.


That’s why… it’s not easy to find someone who is trading for a living to mentor you.


I was one of them, it takes a LOT of effort to mentor someone. Doing the above.


The game changer: 1 on 1 mentoring


And it’s only this year – with all the Covid-19 and all the dips and recessions in the economy, I’ve decided that if I really want to make an impact on someone’s life.


This is the commitment I need to make.


But for that to happen, I will also need a committed mentee.


If not it’s a waste of my time and effort training and mentoring someone who isn’t committed.


It takes two hands to clap.


A willing teacher needs a willing student.


Someone willing to do the hard work at the start when you are learning a new skill.


I will push you, guide you, tap you to the right side.


You will be the one that needs to do the learning, practice and trading.


That’s what makes a successful mentorship.


Regardless whether you are a new trader who wants to make a serious income from trading either forex, stocks, commodities or indexes OR if you are a fund management company with a high AUM looking to increase your ROI.

Our high success ratio is proof in itself that what we do for individuals & businesses like yours works.

Asia Forex Mentor’s ROI-focused trading approach is SO ruthlessly effective…

That we are frequently quoted as the final learning destination for traders.

On a normal day, there will be 3 out of 5 traders who come to us having some good years of trading experience.

They typically have already attended various trading seminars and also online courses. However, profitability is still evading them.

We are here to put an end to this endless learning madness. Because trading isn’t about having some fanciful trading strategies or names. Trading is just about making more money than your losses. It’s as simple as that.

Our approach to trading is built on that fact to achieve a higher mathematical probability of winning and ‘out-edging’ the market using our proprietary system.

It’s a bold statement. But we know from our research and results exactly that what we say is true. We will out-edge the market – every single set.

We know exactly what we need to do to make that happen. Financially. Strategically.

Down to the dollar.

Asia Forex Mentor has just a sole focus of generating profitability and ROI for our clients.

We have the set of exact know-how of what to do in any situation. Harnessing different kinds of tweaks and advice – customised differently to every individual client. Nobody is the same, hence there’s no same trading approach for everyone. This comes from close to 20 years of trading experience…all of which is put at your service as an Asia Forex Mentor client.

All of which I’m doing is to bring you to put up $1, and turn it into $3 profits.

Many times, the ROI doesn’t stop at 200%.

Here’s a published example of how I turned 950% in 2 weeks. Part 1

1 month later, with a capital of $24k, I turned it into $300k – That’s a 1250% return on investment. Part 2

Here’s another example of a trade I took that made $159,432.25 in a day

And another example of me making $100K during Donald Trump Presidential Election within hours

Working with us — and I’m not bragging when I say this — is probably the smartest way to make the BEST ROI growth you ever had.

Because you are not just getting an average trader or trainer who makes 3 or 4 or 5 figures a trade.

You are getting a professional trader who actually makes 6 figures a trade.

That is a lot of difference between the new and the seasoned players.

“Ezekiel’s ROI-driven approach is very different from the one used by most trainers. It is a scientific, numbers-driven way of beating the market that is not taught anywhere.”

Raymond Wong
(Newbie turned full time trader – A mentee of Ezekiel Chew)

So when I say I know my stuff, I truly do.

The best part?

The way that I trade, it’s so systematic that all vehicles that have a chart are the same to me. So I trade forex, stocks, indexes, commodities, cryptos and more. The vehicle doesn’t matter as long as it can make you money.

Once you learn the way I trade, the next time somebody tells you about a certain forex pair, stock, commodity, etc., you can just take a look at the chart and have a good idea of where the market is likely heading, why, and what advice you would give them in terms of whether to buy, sell or stay out of it.

This skill will become second nature to you but, most importantly, you now make good money from it with minimum hours while spending the rest of the day doing the things you actually enjoy.

I’ve recorded a video where I’ll give you insight into how systematic the way we trade is and why when we say that 5% a month is not only possible but actually achievable even if you are a losing trader.

And it’s also a good video to watch if you are interested in being a mentee of mine, so that you know who you are learning from.

Now, after watching the video, do you see why we say that trading can be very profitable? And it’s not gambling?

That’s how full-time traders trade from their home with just 1-2 hours a day and in the meanwhile do other stuff: plan their retirement, start a new business, spend time with their family, go golfing, go on holiday, or whatever they feel like.

All you need is a computer and an internet connection and you can make money anywhere in the world.

Okay, I’ve got it. I know trading can be lucrative.

So what do I do next?

Before you schedule a call with me to see if we are a good fit, I want to give you a gift. This is a 5-part system on how to make really big money in trading. And I’m giving it to you completely free. If anything, you will learn the insights of trading and how you can actually make money from it.



We have generated over millions of dollars via trading with the 5 part system outlined in this free training. Download it now before this page comes down or when I decide to stop mentoring.

Either way, download the free training programme I’m giving you above.

You will enjoy it. It’s the recording of a training session I gave in Singapore. And it’s my way of thanking you for being on my site and reading so much (I know it’s long, but I want it to be comprehensive enough).

After which, when you are ready, schedule a call with me here. Like I said in the video, you don’t have to pay a single cent now. It’s all about understanding you and to see how I can mentor you to be a profitable trader.

And if we discover we are a good fit, that’s when we start our 1-on-1 mentoring together.

If not, all you lose is 30 minutes full of advice on how to become a profitable trader.

So the risk is all on me.

Like I said, once I take you on as my mentee, I’ll coach you until you are profitable.

How’s that for fair?

Try asking those gurus to do that and watch them squirm.

That’s my guarantee to you.


Step 1

Download the training programme that I have given you above. It’s my gift for you even if you don’t take any action. At least it will give you an insight on trading and if it does open your mind to it. I’ll be more than glad.


Step 2

Now this is only for people who are committed in wanting to make a solid income through trading. If you are sure you are committed, schedule a call with me and we’ll talk about how we can customise a trading plan for you. And, if I commit to you, we will proceed.


Step 3

You will begin the 1 on 1 mentoring directly with me. I will train you, coach you, tweak you until you are profitable. Giving you a money making skill that you can use and pass on to your next generation.

To mastering a money making skill for life,
