Ways to Boost your Spreadbetting Trading Results

Improve your Spreadbetting Strategy and Enjoy Increased Returns in the UK Markets Financial Spreadbetting strategies abound on the Internet, but finding the ideal investment strategy can be a challenge. Spread bettors are a discerning group of investors. The overriding factor that separates successful spread bettors from mediocre ones is the choice of strategy that is adopted.

DOW follows FTSE – A New Web Site

Now just because there's been little sign of life at Investor Trader over the past few weeks, doesn't mean we haven't been busy little beavers behind the scenes working on other financey-type web gadgets. Just as AIM Soirée answered those burning questions about who's discussing what in the world of AIM listed shares, recently we've moved our focus to topics new. Oh yes, ladies and gentlemen, drumroll please, may I introduce our latest offering to the Interweb: DOW follows FTSE. Now I'm not going to spew out a whole new spiel about what happens at DOW follows FTSE. Needless to say the title's...

Buying Gold

So I'm up and running with my first financial spread bet for a while. The ghosts of financial spread betting failures past have been laid to rest with a renewed bout of reading and I'm ready to make my fortune (sic) trading commodities. I popped 100 quid in my trading account (big spender) and I've bought gold at 10 pounds a point at $1,502 with a stop at $1,492. The stop is a little closer than I'd like it but being an optimist (albeit one with only 100 quid in their account) I've opted for a larger bet and a closer stop...

A Return to Financial Spread Betting

It's been a while since I've had any financial spread bets in play. To be honest in the past I've had mixed fortunes with my forays into the world of financial spread betting. It's a situation I usually attempt to remedy by furthering my financial education before trading again; you just can't have enough financial knowledge. So when I inevitably get the urge to dip a toe into financial spread betting waters - usually around about the time a financial blogger or two I follow have had ridiculous five-figure gains - I read, I follow online those in the know, then...

No Brainer Trades

Just came across a great FOREX Trading blog and wanted to share. At No Brainer Trades, Steve runs a very refreshing financial blog that offers straight-to-the-point FOREX Trading advice and posts trade information, not signals, he loathes the word signals. Here's the blurb of what constitutes a No Brainer Trade: Based on the premise of areas of heavy bank order flows, or simply stated, large, key areas of support and resistance which are very obvious areas for price reversal or continuation of momentum. Anyone new to the FOREX trading game can definitely learn a thing or two here. Steve's methods read like a...

The Aim of Investor Trader

THE AIMS 1. To earn £1,000,000 by investing and trading the UK and FOREX markets - using only money derived from this website - over a five year period, beginning 28th April 2009 and finishing at the close of business on the 27th April 2014. 2.

If I hit the magical million, then £500,000 will go to charity, if I make a grand (£1,000), then charity will get a monkey (£500). THE REALITY So I've set the bar...

Investor Trader Finds its Aim

Launch of a Website Mk. II So I've been sitting on this Investor Trader site for a while now. I make a comfortable living online through a handful of a travel sites (and a little freelance to boot) and whilst I have an interest in investing and trading, it's far from an area of expertise (in fact if you graphed my ROI from the past decade, you'd be within your rights to argue that even interest is quite a strong term; to the contrary, it would seem that I'm committed to giving wads of my hard-earned to business-men in ten thousand...
