Lucky at least you did the full course, I only got half, still waiting to hear back from credit card company for partial refund. I loved it because of the structured training, covering various topics and different situations and contexts.
What is your source for the belief that Marex bought them out? Last I heard the administrator could not find a buyer.

Hi guys, I haven't been back to this thread for some time. Only saw it because there was a new post. Since the time I posted, I did complete the course and I have found it quite useful. So, I feel that I should give a quick review.
Like what some of the posters say, you don't really need a specific course on price ladder in order to see iceberg orders and absorption. However, this course is much more than that. I felt that it gave me a more holistic view of the markets. Especially if you trade Eurex products, part of the course syllabus also covers how to prepare and trade ECB days and specific Eurex products setups like month end flows.
The thing about reading order flow, is that nuances do matter, and maybe after staring at the DOM for 6 months you'll pick up these nuances, but maybe not. So, this course really helped to identify some very specific price action that you'll notice around key levels or areas to trade.
I think the course may be starting again, but i'm not too sure who the instructor will be this time. Maybe Dan Goldberg, as he seems to be the only trader left at FutexLive.
As for those who have taken the course, and for some reason were not able to complete it due to that whole mess at Futex. Send me a PM, I'll be glad to help you sort out the course material.

I sent them a couple of emails and no reply. From what I can see only Dan is there. Miltos who was the original instructor is gone. Brannigan is gone too. In the latest course they only give you one month of access but trading drills every day, according to the email they sent out. I decided to pass on it.
I got back a 50% refund through the credit card company finally.
Yep plus the fact they refused to give me even a partial refund forcing me to go through my credit card company should give anyone pause. Their customer service still seems to be bad, another red flag.

I've received 9 e-mails from Futex Live offering training courses in December alone ....sounds like they are trying to raise cash, and quickly!
The latest offer for Price Ladder Training is 25% off ending tomorrow...so £475 instead of £649, and previously the course was £999!
Just curious..... can previous participants please tell me if the course description below sounds like the same as before or has a chunk of it been cut out (hence the ongoing price reductions) ??
Here is the blurb from the e-mail:
"We made changes to the old course and have had excellent feedback from people who have already taken the new updated version. We are now ready to offer you the chance to take it as well at new lower price of £649 (was £999). The PLT is a 20 day course which can be taken over a 6 week period at your convenience. There are 10 Modules to complete and each of the 20 days has a training drill for you to practice. Drills will be completed using a Simulator using live prices rather than pre-recorded to enhance the experience and make the training as near to live trading as possible."

I recently emailed them, asking if they updated any of the material from the first time I took it. Basically, they are going to reuse all of that. I think the only difference is going to be the drills. To me, I would rather have a recorded day where you know a certain price action pattern is going to turn up. Else, you could be staring at the simulator for days and see nothing on the ladder.
I just simply wouldn't do the course any more, knowing that the 2 main price action guys (Miltos and Braniggan) are no longer there. The main trader left, Dan Goldberg is a market profile guy. He's trading style will be quite different (relies much less on order flow confirmation).
The following user says Thank You to KelvinKing for this post:
the real value of the PLT is in the drills... where the drill is really focusing on one specific techniq at a time.
You can get many of the topics.. like absorption from other sources ex. Jigsaw but for me it was invaluable to learn and trade these patterns in a slowed down focused simulation environment especially that the same drill was running 3x consequitively every week according to a preannounced schedule.
I think the PLT is a very well structured training all the topics are relevant and usable immediately.
Of course it can be improved ( like the month end trading drill... which maybe the only black sheep among the topics) but to improve a dedicated trainer and some kinda futex community wud be needed... instead I rather follow da brannigan guy whose periscopes' are still of high value and full of good and free information.
So if they have changed the drills, it's not the same product as before and the main trainers have left- despite the price reduction, I can't get comfortable with exactly with what we would receive- I would purchase it for the drills as the theory you can get pretty much elsewhere, I am going to pass on this offer.
