That's the first word that comes to mind when looking back on what was a phenomenal week with the Urban Forex Team and students in Koh Samui, Thailand.
On the 26th of February 2018, 18 enthusiastic students arrived at the 5-Star Villa Kalyana resort in the south tip of Koh Samui as they prepared to embark on what would become a life-changing week.
Some traveled from close while other had to suffer through days of traveling, but that didn't dampen any spirits. Everyone there had made their own personal commitments to get there and they were all determined to make the most of it.
On top of that, the full Urban Forex team were flown in from around the world for this event. This was to ensure that those who made the commitment to join would get nothing but the best during the entirety of their stay.
With over 16 countries represented and an age span ranging from the 20s to 60s, the group was notably diverse. However, the connection that everyone made, right from the beginning was remarkable, which set things up nicely for the week ahead.
Each day started in front of the ocean, just after sunrise, where we all met for morning stretches with me followed by meditation with Navin. This activated the body and the mind in preparation for an intensive day of Forex training.
After breakfast, everyone met in the main conference room for a 2-hour training session with Navin where he brought the group through each stage of preparing and executing a trade.
This session was quickly followed by a group session where everyone was split into 4 groups where they put the theory of Navin's lessons into real-time practice via the live charts. Each group was closely watched by the 4 Urban Forex mentors; Armand, Dev, Barry and of course Navin and they were on hand to offer guidance and assistance to each individual during these sessions.
These close sessions with the mentors took up much of the rest of the day with only a few hours in the middle for lunch and a little bit of time to enjoy the sun, pool, and beach, however, even during these times you could see the determination and desire to improve from the attendees as they often stayed with their laptops keeping a close eye on the charts to see if their read of the market played out as they predicted.
And that was the most rewarding part for Navin and the mentors, to see the level of improvement from each and every one of the students from day 1 through to day 4.
Each day ended with a recap session before dinner where Navin would take one final review and answer questions on the day's training.
To the surprise of the students, lesson 1 on day 1 went all the way back to the beginning of the MPA. Thinking that it was a little bit basic at first, they soon realized the importance of these early MPA lessons because if your starting point is off then the rest of what you do becomes void and your read will be wrong.
Each day after that took the students through another step as they watched Navin put the lessons into practice live on his own account.
Lessons from MPA and 4CB were constantly utilized and then on the last day the students were able to put all the steps together to read and understand the story of the charts, why they made the moves they did and what they are looking to do next.
Mike: "Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your hard work, support & dedication you give to all your students. You really are AMAZING !! Our trip to Koh Samui was probably one of the proudest moments I have ever felt, it was like an extension of my own family. You have literally blown away the expectations of everyone who came along"
Drew: "I just wanted to follow up with a thank you message to all the team. The effort you all made is very much appreciated and an experience I'll never forget. The training was great and has already given me a new perspective on the market and my approach to trading. Thanks Navin."
Overall this gathering turned out to be hugely successful. The feedback and thanks we received from the attendees were truely heartwarming.
At the same time, Navin and each of the mentors were extremely impressed with the passion shown by each of the students.
Huge thanks must go to Lucille for organizing the whole event and making sure everything went as smoothly as it did.
Being such a successful event can only mean one thing... there will be more like it :)
We look forward to seeing more of you join the next one.
