iMarketsLive MLM Review (2020): Scam, Wolf, or King of Wall Street?
Table of Contents
It’s All About The Benjamins
So you wanna get rich from Forex trading, huh?
I know the feeling.
But you might wanna think twice about joining iMarketsLive.
Like it or not, most MLMs like iMarketsLive are dressed up sales jobs.
Whether it’s selling “the dream” to your friends and family to convince ’em to sign up for your new Forex trading program…
Or just buying and selling currencies in the Forex market yourself.
Either way, you better enjoy hustlin’ and grindin’ if you’re gonna make it in this game.
Let me break it down for you:
iMarketsLive – short for International Markets Live – is a unique multi-level marketing company that’s all about Forex trading.
That’s short for foreign exchange trading, also known as currency trading.
It’s just like the stock market but instead of buying and selling shares of companies, you buy and sell currencies like the U.S. and Canadian dollar.
And unlike a regular 9-to-5 job, skilled currency traders can make (or lose) serious bank.

In fact, the Forex market is the largest financial market on the planet — doing 5 TRILLION (with a “t”) a day in trade volume.
That’s over 200 times larger than the New York Stock Exchange!
Now you can see why there’s an absolute sh*tload of Benjamins to be made in Forex.
And iMarketsLive is doing exactly that:
By 2020, they were pulling in over $6 million per month.
They’ve also experienced a tremendous amount of growth and momentum in 2020 and 2020.
But there’s a fair amount of controversy surrounding this network marketing phenom.
If you’ve noticed that too, you’re probably interested in a lil’ more info about ’em, right?
You’ve come to the right place, brotato chip.
iMarketsLive Company Overview
First things first:
iMarketsLive is a Forex trading MLM that offers various trading educational products and services to a global audience.
They currently appear in over 120 countries and have training available in 8 major languages.
As you’d expect, their headquarters is located in the center of the financial universe:
New York City, New York.
They also have a staff of over 60 educators who have a single job: Teach peeps like you and me about the joys of Forex and cryptocurrency trading.
Oh, did I not mention they do cryptocurrency markets like Bitcoin as well?
The company’s vision, according to their website, is to “Educate, Enrich, and Empower One Million Students by 2020.”
Admittedly, also according to their website:
Trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing financial security or life style.
To be fair, that could be said about any investment opportunity (e.g. financial services from Primerica, binary options, etc), but Forex trading is notoriously difficult — I know from personal experience.
Risks aside for now, let’s talk about how iMarketsLive came into being in the first place.
When Was iMarketsLive Founded?
What’s the real story behind iMarketsLive?
Well, for starters:
International Markets Live, Inc. was founded back in 2020 by CEO Christopher Terry.
But you know what’s weird?
iMarketsLive’s corporate website is surprisingly thin when it comes to offering information.
Most companies, even most MLM companies, have at least a little history of the company along with a small biography of the founder/CEO.
iMarketsLive.com has no such information on their site and seems to prefer to remain as mysterious as possible.
But I did manage to find this page, which appears to be an older bio of the company’s founder Chris Terry.
Here’s an excerpt:
Mr. Christopher Terry began this journey in construction, both as a worker and eventually as an owner, for nearly 12 years. In 1995, he discovered commodities trading and began to immerse himself in the markets.
In just 3 years, he was confident enough to walk away from his Construction Business, which had generated sales in excess of $40 million that same year, in order to become a full time trader.
Over the years he applied and effectively utilized this winning strategy of gaining the necessary learning and experience through the proper Mentors and then imitating the strategies of successful people.
While doing so he realized the same process of following success step by step, could bring average people everywhere to the same level of success that he himself had achieved.
Mr. Terry began to realize that at this point in his life it was his calling to help change people’s lives on a massive Global scale through a marriage of Network Marketing with Professional Trading.
This is why, in August 2020, Mr. Terry made the decision it was time to act on this Philosophy, and International Markets Live, Inc. was born.
One thing that’s missing from that bio of Chris Terry is his long history with MLMs and network marketing.
Terry came up in Amway, and although by his own admission he didn’t actually make any money, he said it gave him a “mindset of wealth”.
In other words, he probably realized the folks who made the most money in an MLM were the ones at the top and who recruited the largest downlines.
This also might explain why Chris Terry was reportedly a big promoter of Zeek Rewards*, which got busted by the SEC in 2020 for being a ponzi scheme.
(*In this interview with Denise Martino, Terry refers to Denise as his “downline member” and she clearly appears to be in Zeek at the time.)
Despite these failed business attempts, Chris Terry persisted and while the idea of iMarketsLive was spawned in 2020, it officially launched in 2020.
The new Forex trading MLM grew quickly and by 2020, iMarketsLive reached 55,000 members.
Unfortunately, that same year brokers began locking the accounts of many iMarketsLive customers for using an unregulated “expert advisor”.
Here’s what happened:
iMarketsLive had a special little automated trading program called “FX Signals Live”.
The program automatically mirrored the trades of Chris Terry himself, so members could essentially play the Forex market without actually understanding it.
However, one of the main reasons there are regulations in the investment world is to prevent exactly that.

And when legitimate brokers like FXCM decided they wouldn’t allow it anymore, FX Signals Live was discontinued in 2020.
As a replacement, iMarketsLive released their new online “Harmonic Scanner” designed to help follow market trends.
It’s a little technical but here’s a basic video that explains what it does:
It’s basically an online tool that scans the market in real-time and gives you alerts for different price patterns and trading opportunities.
But now you actually have to know what’s going on and make the trades yourself.
What Are iMarketsLive Products?
iMarketsLive sells you on the ability to become a successful currency trader.
Sure, you could try to learn it all by yourself.
After all, how hard could it be to click a few buttons and place a few trades?
Buy low, sell high.
Easy peasy, right?
Well, despite what you may have heard, day trading is MUCH harder than it sounds.
That’s why iMarketsLive offers a full suite of support and trading education.
Over 100 training videos and modules offer basic and advanced strategies on both Forex trading and cryptocurrency investing.
You can also access live trading rooms and watch experienced staff members place trades and talk about the secrets of their success (in 8 different languages).
Here’s a good overview video that explains the iMarketsLive opportunity:
Obviously that’s a company sponsored video, so take it with a grain of salt (don’t drink the Kool-Aid).
But I will say that iMarketsLive seems to provide a ton of help for their members, which is always a big plus.
Even CEO Chris Terry himself gets in on the action, holding Sunday night webinars that you can sit in on.
Additionally, iMarketsLive gives you access to their proprietary financial trading software.
As mentioned earlier, their Harmonic Scanner searches the market for harmonic patterns to exploit and profit from.
Their Web Analyzer does the same with cryptocurrency, for an additional fee.
And even though their trade-mirroring service is gone, iMarketsLive still provides other ways for you to copy what their experts are doing.
Swipe Trades will alert you to “Forex trade ideas” including risk management and expert guidance for an extra $17 per month.
Swipe Coin does the same but for Crypto trade ideas and info, for an extra $100 per month fee.
While that may seem pricey, keep in mind that it allows you to get solid trade ideas sent right to your phone without having to do any of the legwork.
Because let’s be honest: If you knew what you were doing when it comes to trading, you wouldn’t be paying this company $165 a month or more for the privilege.
Long story short: The more you pay iMarketsLive, the more training and tools you get.
Speaking of which, here are your membership options if you wanna join:

Hey, nobody said day trading was cheap.
To be fair, iMarketsLive does offer a 7 day, 100% money back guarantee to all of its subscribers.
If you’re dissatisfied with their service in any way, you can get a full refund of your membership fee within a week of signing up.
iMarketsLive gives their Customers a “2 & FREE” option as well — if you personally refer 2 people into buying a monthly membership, your membership is free.
So: If you can convince a couple people that Forex trading is awesome…
You don’t have to pay anything to get the iMarketsLive training and support.
Sounds good, but here’s something you should know from a guy who’s been in the trenches:
My Forex Trading Experience
The risk factor in Forex trading is something we shouldn’t just gloss over.
As mentioned in iMarketsLive’s disclaimer, you can easily lose all your invested money in addition to the monthly fees.
I should know — years ago, I was heavily into Forex trading and learned everything I could about it.
Technical analysis, risk management, chart indicators — you name it, I tried it.
And that’s not all:
I kept daily trading journals, learned how to read candlesticks, recognize trends, and was a particular fan of using 2ATR for a trailing stop loss.
Along the way, I traded almost every currency pair, chart timeframe, and read every trading strategy book I could find.
(Here’s my personal favorite, along with this one originally published in 1930.)
I should also mention that I paid a small fortune for different trading systems, tools, and “secret” strategies from so-called experts.
I’m FAR from the smartest guy in the room — but I’m not a complete Muppet either.
I wasn’t just gambling (only risked 2-3% max per trade) and I gave Forex trading everything I had for almost 3 years straight while I was still driving truck.
And even though I had periods of profitability, in the end I always lost money.
Not to mention I also got sick of the highs and lows of trading — feeling like a God one week, damn near suicidal the next.
Out of desperation, I finally resorted to following a mirror-trading service which ultimately blew up and reduced my trading account to almost nothing.
It was my own dumbass fault, but that’s when I decided to hang up my Forex trading gloves and look for something else.
Also contributing to that decision was realizing that after being on countless online trading forums — I wasn’t alone in my frustration and misery.
The only ones who seemed to be making any consistent money in Forex (besides the banks and hedge funds), were the guys selling me the tools and systems.
Just like during the gold rush back in the 1800’s, the real money wasn’t in digging for gold — it was selling the pickaxes and shovels to the desperate and hopeful.
Now obviously, there ARE successful Forex traders out there.
So just because this ex-truck driver with a GED couldn’t do it, doesn’t mean that you can’t make it work.
Like any other form of retail trading, some folks make money and some folks lose money.
All I’m saying is that Forex trading is hard as hell.
As a general rule, if you enter a gambling game against a lotta peeps who are more experienced and skilled than you are…
It’s a safe bet that the odds aren’t in your favor.
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
Pros: Why Join iMarketsLive?
✓ Potential for serious income without recruitment.
Almost every MLM in existence requires you to recruit and grow a huge downline if you wanna make the big money.
The reason is simple:
Your time is limited and there’s only so many hours in a week that you can use to sell products to people you know.
Forex trading is different in the sense that you could gain (or lose) a lot of money all by yourself, without ever having to recruit anyone.
✓ No pants required.
While most MLMs involve you dragging around a box of products to various houses, iMarketsLive is something you do from your desk or smartphone.
This is a very modern MLM and the entire thing (training + products + support) is all available online.
Never having to leave your house to run your business is a definite advantage.
For example, go try selling Amway products with no pants — I’m guessing it wouldn’t turn out so well.
✓ Plenty of training materials.
Between all the videos, training modules, tutorials, and live help sessions, iMarketsLive probably offers more actual product support than most other MLMs.
If you’re willing to invest in your education and want a crash course in Forex trading, there’s a vast bucket of knowledge here waiting for you.
Cons: Is iMarketsLive a Scam?
✗ First off: Solid trading advice don’t come cheap.
Around $200 up front plus $170 a month is what it’s gonna cost you for the most basic level of membership.
That’s over $2000 per year.
But if that trading advice makes you ten times that, it might be worth it.
✗ You could lose a lot more than your monthly fees.
Yes, plenty of people lose money in MLMs (most do).
But they generally lose money from not being able to recoup their minimum purchase requirements and monthly fees.
With iMarketsLive, in addition to your membership fees, you’ll also have to risk your own trading capital to play the currency markets.
And you might lose all of that money too.
In fact, thanks to the way that leveraged trades work, you can actually lose even MORE than the full amount of your Forex trading account.
✗ A strong fishy odor.
Can you trust iMarketsLive?
Well, sometimes the best way to predict the future is to look at the past (or just Google the present):
• iMarketsLive CEO Chris Terry has a previous connection with Zeek Rewards which the SEC had to shut down for fraud in 2020.
• The VP Alex Morton has a long history with MLM companies like Vemma Nutrition that had to settle for hundreds of millions of dollars with the FTC for being a pyramid scheme. You should check out this revealing article on Morton that shows the reality of being a professional MLMer when he was with his last company.
• iMarketsLive is banned as unauthorized in Belgium, and also received warnings from other countries like France.
• When I first published this article, iMarketsLive had an F rating (very bad) from the Better Business Bureau due to having so many complaints.
Then all of sudden they had an BBB rating of “A”, mostly thanks to a bunch of positive reviews that showed up around the same time (many on the same day).
Coincidence? Yeah, right.
As another reviewer pointed out, prob’ly because IML asked their members to spam their BBB page with positive reviews to drown out the negative ones.
Nice try fellas. Not shady at all.
Also can’t forget that iMarketsLive is an MLM which means recruiting other members is highly encouraged.
Here’s one of IML’s top earners explaining in detail how it’s done:
Ask yourself: If it was just about forex trading, why teach people how to recruit at all? Why not just trade forex and make a ton of money?
I dunno… maybe cuz:
Most retail traders lose money in the long run, so the real money is made by getting other people to join.
Is it really, though?
- 87% of all IBOs make an average of $4.30 per month (you read that right, less than $5/mo).
- 98% of all IBOs make less than $115 per month.
- Only 0.3% of all IBOs earn more than $30k per year.
Not exactly what I’d call a high-probability trade.
But if that doesn’t make you puke in your mouth a lil’, this industry might be for you.
If, however, you’re looking for a more legit and reputable business model… my two cents?

When you trading with FXTM you are able to operate with fixed or floating leverage. The leverage indeed a very useful tool, especially for the traders of smaller size, as it may increase your potential gains timely due to its possibility to multiple initial account balance in a particular number of times.
What is the risk level?
Yet, remember that correct leverage should be set to various instruments, as it may increase your risk level and potential loses as well. Therefore, FXTM leverage is determined by various measures and firstly set according to the regulatory requirement in the region or another. And then is also based on the trader experience and knowledge, so always check with customer support team first which one is applicable for you.
So if you would like to operate under higher leverage ratios like 1:400, 1:500 or even 1:1000 you may open an FXTM account under a particular entity that allows such high leverage levels, which is offered by the global brand.
Otherwise, if you are a resident of Europe or UK, as well holding an account under European entity which obliges to ESMA regulation, the maximum current leverage ratio is set to a

- 1:20 Spot Metals, 1:10 XAG USD
- 1:20 Minor Currency Pairs

Despite the majority, the FXTM trading accounts are truly ensuring each client convenience by separate accounts for Forex trading and Invest Accounts. Then there is a further split to your preference of the trading transactions, instrument and the trading size, which all in all offers you 6 Account types.
Making the story short, it means that if you prefer to use ECN execution you have a choice between various FXTM ECN accounts, or an option to be based on Standard Accounts with no commission and all costs built into the spread.
However, always make sure to verify under which entity you will trade as FXTM offering may be slightly different for Forextime Limited, ForexTime UK or Exinity Limited. In this FXTM review we will cover Forextime offering in detail so you would understand conditions better.
