  • Since my journey with Share Direct the Forex Intraday Masterclass has been an epic one with daily great rewards... I make informed trades with confidence and with a very high probability of success.  Indeed, this is a must have strategy with daily rewards on one's trading career. - Jabu K
  • Johann's analysis of the forex market is brilliant. He is a better Trader/Mentor than any of the world-famous trading gurus that I have studied.  I think the difference is in his meticulous and very rational approach to the art of predicting future price movements and in his unselfish interest in the success of his students.  Johann's Master Class strategies provide one with enough objective market evidence to make rational trading decisions.  The result so far has been a great improvement in my profit-loss ratio and - most important - greater consistency in my performance.- Johan O
  • The strategy is working great and it doesn't take a lot of time.  I can easily carry on with my day-to-day activities. - Martin B
  • I’m finding the Masterclass absolutely brilliant! - Yudish S
  • I am enjoying the practical nature of the course and the real-time advice which Johan shares with us. - John H
  • It is truly a great blessing - the willingness to share a lifetime of experience and a strategy which was formed as a result of trial and error is actually priceless. Thanks to Johann for his willingness and humility to share. - Belinda J
  • The highlight for me in engaging with Share Direct is the mentorship programme, this represents an opportunity to see how the professionals do trading and emulate from there. I would highly recommend Share Direct’s training as their support goes way past the classroom. - Prince L
  • Through many years of ad-hoc trading I have never come across as complete a package for trading as with the CFD mentorship programme. In a nutshell I have learned the following: Apply the strategy meticulously, do the homework and trust that it will keep you safe in indecisive market conditions and prosperous in trending market conditions. The statistics of the CFD Mentorship history shows that it works. - Wessel A
  • Hello Johann, I just want to say thank you for guiding us to how to make money on the Forex Market. I had a bad experience some years ago when I tried to trade shares and I lost 35K so I was not sure I will ever make it in the market. This mentorship has taught me a lot and given me renewed hope and confidence that I can do it. Thank you and God bless! - Jane K
