    Insane Email I Received from Anton Kreil

    Hey guys,

    I'm not normally one to talk trash about other people in the industry unless they're blatantly scamming, however I had an exchange with Anton Kriel earlier today that has me a little flabbergasted, so I feel the need to share.

    He's the lead guy at www.instutrade.com where they sell mentorships for thousands of dollars. I've seen a few of his interviews on YouTube in the past and he seemed like the real deal. I then came across a quazi documentary where we follow his students across 10 days while he teaches them how to trade.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWRd-gXjToY

    I found it a little weird that there wasn't a single negative comment after 35,000 views. So I raised the question that it seemed a little strange. His response needs to be read to be believed.... He's now deleted (of course), however I've taken a screenshot so you guys can see for yourself.

    These are the youtube comments, which are more of a rant than anything else:

    But then! He sends another message through our support desk which is.... a little more to the point.

    I'll leave you to make your own assessment, but one word does spring to mind for me.

    Starts with T

    Ends in ool

    Yer i think he was drunk, calling the straightest guys in the FX game "scammers" doesnt hold up sober

    He's ego has no room for criticism. It's not good to lack humility in anything, especially trading. I'd be curious if he talks about mind set in his training... management/education/funding and mindset.

    I saw the documentary some years ago too, I thought his manager was more of an arrogant pr*ck, he seems alright and down to earth at least.

    Surprised to see this response from him. Like others have mentioned must be the emotions.

    But probably just had a really bad day. And your timing was just 'perfect'.

    Typical alpha-male that must have the upper hand in everything.

    We should take a step back and question what is his agenda? What does he get out of it?

    Definitely over-reacted, but why waste so much time replying on youtube then delete? And also sending a personal email to you?

    Presumably he has seen so many 'scams' over the years, shouldn't he be immuned to it by now?

    yea, if it was just Nick McDonald asking he probably wouldn't have blown his fuse. but nick mcdonald - making a million (forex trader) & not knowing anything about forexsignals.com gave him a bee in his bonnet. still an over reaction & not professional.

    i saw him in the bbc documentary a few years ago, thought he came across as arrogant and cocky but I suppose it's hard to get through the city of london and goldman sachs without becoming at least a bit of a twat.

    On his defence. If he thinks nick is one of the scammers out there. Like 95% out there then I do understand the hate if he feels a scammer is trying to scoop business this way.

    My best guess is bad timing... I would bet he hasn't had the best trading year thus far and just snapped due to frustration.

    Successful traders are normally much more in control of their emotions.

    Well in most cases if you don't get it sorry for you but we got your money so bye, that is why i do not like too learn or use schools like that but thats just my 2 cents

    heres the BBC serie:

    Yeah, I've seen that as well and why I took an interest in his new video. I've never been so taken back by an email.

    No wonder there are no negative comments on his channel. If I lived in London I'd worry about getting a knock on the door with a burning paper bag on my porch.
