From Peckham to Pioneer; this is the story of 21-year-old entrepreneur Kieran Davis.
Born in South London, Peckham — Kieran Davis never had it easy for himself when he was growing up. Kieran could of easily went down a much darker path.

From Peckham to pioneer, this is the raw uncut interview of 21-year-old entrepreneur Kieran Davis, presented and published to you by Anish Parmar;
Firstly, How did you first get involved with Forex trading?
“I first got involved with the industry of Forex Trading the first day I got out of prison. Crazy right? You see, prior to Forex Trading, I was a very different person compared to who I am today. I fell into the wrong crowd; I was doing a lot of wrong things with the wrong people. Hustling, partying, getting arrested — you name it, we did it. However, I felt like something changed inside of me after I got sent to prison. In all honestly, I was struggling; mentally, financially & spiritually.
I knew something had to change. I couldn’t just be that “kid from ends” anymore you know? I wanted to do something more with my life.
Fast forward to when I got released from prison and my phone instantly rang. It felt like a gift from god. It was one of my close friends telling me about an opportunity, an opportunity to change my life via Forex trading, so I researched it and took action — on my own.
I started to watch YouTube videos and tried to teach myself the basics on how to trade on the Forex markets. However, this only resorted to me blowing my trading account and losing all of my money. Shortly after, I got approached and contacted by another friend of mine and got told by him to come to down to one of his trading events to learn how to trade properly with his team. I accepted his invitation and decided to sign up and take action with him..
… The rest is history.”
What are your goals for 2020? Do you look up to anyone in the Forex industry?
“My goal for 2020 is to retire both of my parents. That’s the goal, and I promise you I’ll make a reality.
However, when it comes to who I look up to in Forex; I would have to say Austin Godsey & myself. I look up to Austin because I can relate to the pain and struggle, he’s experienced as a man. Austin went from rag to riches. From living in his car with his pregnant girlfriend to being a multi-millionaire travelling the world with his son. It’s truly inspiring — and I can’t wait to see myself at the top with him.
Furthermore, I also lookup to myself because I genuinely never thought I could have gotten to where I currently am in my entrepreneurial journey. If you would have told me that I would have retired myself at the age of 21, I wouldn’t have believed you and laughed, especially because of what I’ve been through in the last couple of years. It’s surreal to know that I went from running from the police to running my own Forex events and creating my own educational platform for traders from scratch. I’m honestly so proud of myself and my growth.”
What pairs do you currently trade?
“I currently trade ‘The Forex Majors’ and Bitcoin so EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, USD/CHF and also BTCUSD.
However, if it’s usually got a candlestick, I’ll trade it. I’m extremely simple that way.”
What are your current trading strategies?
“This might sound crazy but there isn’t just one strategy that I rely on. Contrary to popular belief, I only really rely on the ‘Smart Money’ mindset that I teach to my students.
See, when you adopt this mentality your entire life changes. As for the charts, it’s a low risk, high reward system. They’re simple footprints in the market, which are left by much bigger players. When you can understand the way in which the bigger players operate the market? Sheesh! It’s a WHOLE different type of money. The biggest we’ve seen is a 1:230 R:R Ratio. It’s insane when you think about it.”
Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
“I see myself owning multiple hedge funds & institutions to be honest. However, it all starts now with a vision and a plan. I’m all about taking action, I grind in silence and let my success make the noise.”
