Making Money From Commodities – Grains prices soar

With Financial Spread Betting, Contracts For Difference (CFDs) and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) it’s possible to back a wide variety of commodities and profit from up and down moves. By using ETFs even someone with a relatively small account can get exposure to commodities and avoid the risks of investing directly in the futures markets.

The last few months grain prices such as Wheat, Corn and Soybeans have been soaring as a US heat wave have caused many crops to fail. The Ipath DJ Grans ETN (JJG) is made up of 33% Soybeans, 26% Wheat and 41% Corn. The ETF can be  bought and sold just like a normal stock.

 

So far this year it’s been the best ETF with a 44% gain mostly of which has come in the last 5 weeks.

Here you can see the top 10 leaders and laggards so for in 2012.

What is Financial Fixed Odds Betting? Betonmarkets.net

What is Financial Fixed Odds Betting?
Fixed odds financial betting offers a tax free (for UK), flexible and innovative alternative to trading the financial markets. With fixed odds betting you can bet on the financial markets knowing exactly what you stand to gain or lose from the outset meaning you have no nasty surprises or margin calls. Whilst Fixed odds financial betting has been available for over 11 years many have still not caught on to what a great product this is.

www.betonmarkets.net

A Financial fixed odds bet is a bet which pays out a fixed amount if a predicted event occurs within a specified timescale. Financial bookmaker Betonmarkets.net offer bets from 1 minute to 12 months with most bets being placed on fairly short term outcomes.
If the predicted event does not occur within the duration of the bet then all you lose is your original stake (again a fixed amount). The events that you can bet on are more varied with financial fixed odds betting than with other forms of trading such a spread betting. Not only can you bet on the market going up or down, you can bet on the market not going up or not going down, you can bet on the market staying within a range or not staying within a range and much more. Most fixed odds bets can also be sold back before expiry allowing you to recoup some of your stake if the bet is going against you or take profits before the expiry.
Financial fixed odds betting is the simplest way to trade the financial markets. The bets are flexible, transparent and easy to understand. If you’re not familiar with trading then fixed odds betting is a great place to start and betonmarkets offer a free virtual account with $10,000 of virtual money to test your ideas using real prices. If you’re an experienced trader then fixed odds betting will be a valuable addition to your investing toolbox with many traders combining Financial Spread Betting and Fixed Odds.

Choose your own risk levels and payouts

With financial fixed odds betting you can choose the parameters and decide how big or small the payout is. For each bet you decide the amount you wish to win, when you want the bet to finish, the bet type and the market levels. The odds are then calculated and displayed on screen along with the amount you need to stake.
You can then decide to either place the bet or tweak the parameters all in real time. Bets are a priced using options models such as Black Scholes however you don’t need to worry about learning complicated option pricing models as the website does all this for you. Simply but the more likely an event will happen the lower the odds and lower the return, of course you are also taking a lower risk and more likely to be paid out. If the event has little chance of happening especially in a short time frame then the odds will offered to you will be much higher leading to a big payout. Experienced trades tend to mix and match risk and reward.

Markets you can trade

Betonmarkets.net offer a wide range of markets to trade including major currency pairs such as Euro/$, EUR/JPY, USD/JPY and AUD.USD to name a few. Major stock indices such as Dow Jones, FTSE100, NASDAQ 100 and Hang Seng. Stocks such as Apple and Google. Betonmarkets.net also offers bets on Gold which have been popular of late.

Further still, you are not limited to simply picking the direction of the market; you can bet on picking the highest point the market trades at in a certain period, or you can bet on the market reaching (or not reaching) a certain level. Bets such as Touch or No Touch, Higher or Lower and In or Out offer some unique why to profit which are not available with Financial Spread Betting.

Small and Big clients welcome

Advantages of Financial Spread Betting

Financial Spread Betting has been available for over 30 years however in the last 10 years its popularity has really exploded. Tens of thousands of retail investors everywhere from the UK and Europe, to Australia and South Africa trade shares, currencies, bonds and commodities on the financial stock markets daily. Here are some of the reasons why it has become so popular.

Tax Free in UK

Unlike traditional share dealing, you pay no taxes on your profits. They are not considered profits under tax laws, but a winning bet, and as such Capital Gains Tax does not apply. The transactions also involve no stamp duty, as the underlying share or commodity is never actually purchased – it’s just a bet on whether or not the value will rise or fall.

No fees or commission

Spread-betting companies don’t charge commissions or brokerage fees. They include all costs in their spread. The last few years competition has become fierce with spread as low as 1 point.

Profit from rising or falling markets

One of the biggest advantages of spread betting is that it doesn’t matter in which direction the market is going – you can still make money. A profit can be made in a falling market as well as in a rising one. Also with fixed odds bets you can also profit from a range or dull market effectively betting on a market to do nothing.

Trade on Margin

Spread betting is leveraged, which means you only need to bet a small percentage of the value of your trades.  You can make the bet using a fraction of the money it would require if you wanted to buy the actual shares from a stockbroker. This is also known as gearing.  You can also choose the size of your stake, often much smaller than would be the case if you were speculating on the underlying market.

Wide Range of Markets

You can access thousands of markets from one account stock Indices, currencies, bonds commodities, shares or even, in some cases, house prices. Most Financial Bookmakers allow you to trade directly from a website without the need to download any additional software.

24 hour access

Some spread betting companies are open 24 hours a day from Sunday night to Friday night. This allows trading in hours even when underlying markets are closed. Dealing can be done online or by phone. You can now also trade with your mobile phone or smartphone including apps that are available for the Iphone, Ipad and Blackberry devices, so you can trade whenever or wherever is convenient for you.

Control your losses

You can set limits on the losses you are prepared to take. These are known as Stop Losses, or Limit Orders. They offer protection against massive losses if the market moves against you. Also most Financial Bookmakers offer Controlled Risk Bets (CRBs) meaning that even if a stop cannot be filled in the underlying market you would still be protected.

Hedging

Spread-betting can be used as a hedging tool to offset against losses in your other portfolio. For example, if you own shares which are decreasing in value in the short term, you can bet on the value falling, and make a profit to offset against the loss in value of the shares you hold. Many investors use spread-betting to hedge against losses. Another popular hedge is Gold, say you had some Gold coins and your worried that Gold will fall but do not want to sell their coins you could spread bet gold to go down which would protect you.

 

Regulated Industry

The spread betting industry is tightly regulated. In the UK, this is by the Financial Services Authority (FSA). It means strict rules apply and the firms offering it are secure and safe.

Don’t jump into Financial Spread Betting Blind

Before you try Financial Spread Betting it’s well worth getting some good advice and training.  Spread Betting Veteran Vince Stanzione has been trading for over 25 years and has produced a course “Making Money From Financial Spread Trading” which is a 160 page workbook, 2 and half hours of DVDs and a members only website.

Exchange Traded Funds and Financial Spread Betting

Exchange Traded Funds and Financial Spread Betting

Combining Financial Spread Betting with ETFs can give you a way to get exposure to an ever growing range of sectors, commodities, global financial indices which you can profit from regardless of markets moving up or down. An as an added bonus UK taxpayers can make tax free gains.

www.winonmarkets.net

Exchange traded funds, or ETFs, have been around since 1993. ETFs are index tracking funds which can be traded on a stock exchange, just like a share.
A typical ETF might seek to mirror the performance of an index like the S&P 500 or the FTSE 100, or perhaps a single sector such as the S&P Energy Sector (XLE) or commodity price such as Gold (GLD).

ETFs have been growing in popularity with investors both large and small, partly because they can be easily traded, just like any other listed security, and partly because they are much cheaper in terms of the fees they charge compared with conventional mutual funds or unit trusts.

So why would you place a financial spread bet on a ETFs? Surely, if you are convinced of the merits of ETFs, it would be easy just to buy and sell the physical ETF rather than opening a spread betting or contracts for difference (CFD) account to trade them?

ETFs are offered as spread bets for a number of reasons, many of which really boil down to the advantages of financial spread betting. For starters, when opening a spread betting account, you gain the advantage of trading on margin: your spread betting company will loan you the majority of the value of the trade, while you only need to deposit a relatively small percentage as your margin. This is something you could not do with a physical trade on an ETF. It also means you are effectively trading a larger amount of shares in that ETF than you would ordinarily be able to do, and if you are right, and the ETF’s price goes up, you get to keep all the profit from the trade. Of course, if you are wrong, the losses could be proportionately great, so caution should be used when trading these products.

ETFs are easily available via a conventional stock broking or share dealing account. But like trading physical shares, if you trade physical ETFs, you are liable to a commission fee every time you trade. In addition, you may also have to pay custody fees. With financial spread betting or CFD trading, you don’t face the drag these costs can pose to your trading account. Plus, you are able to trade other assets, like currencies or commodities, using the same account – not something that is usually possible with a share dealing account.

Financial spread betting also lets you short an ETF. This means you can potentially profit if the price of that ETF falls, by using the bid or sell price. This is much harder to do in the physical market. Yes, some providers do list inverse ETFs, that is, funds which move in the opposite direction to the index. But these are generally only available for the more high profile indexes, like the S&P 500 for example. It is much easier to short an ETF using a financial spread betting or CFD account.
Finally, you may own the physical ETF and may want to hedge your risk by buying a bit of insurance against the possibility that ETF may fall in value. You can do this using a spread betting account by opening a short trade. You must make sure you have a stop loss in place (an automatic order that will close the trade at a pre-arranged price if it moves against you), because otherwise your hedge order will eat into any profits you are making in the physical market. This can be a good tool to protect yourself against sudden market moves.

The universe of ETFs is expanding all the time as they increase in popularity. There is already a significant number of ETFs available for spread betting. These include many of the major commodities markets, where there are ETFs tracking the likes of gold, crude oil, cotton, corn, natural gas and sugar. ETFs tracking a basket of commodities (also known as Exchange Traded Commodities), like agricultural commodities or base metals, are also available to trade.

ETFs are a good way to access sector-specific indexes, for example covering financial services, utilities, real estate or oil services. They can also be used to trade some emerging markets stock markets, like Brazil, China, Russia, or even Taiwan.
ETFs are able to replicate an index through a variety of means. They are not always suitable for holding in a portfolio over the long term horizon. This is because they are subject to something called tracking error, where the very activity of buying and selling shares or derivatives to replicate the index the ETF is trying to track, as well as charging fees, means the ETF does start to deviate from the index over time. Tracking error will vary from ETF to ETF, and from market to market. This is more of a problem for those using ETFs to hold as part of a long term investment strategy, but they are ideal for financial spread betting, particularly if you measure the life of a trade in days or weeks.
Remember, with financial spread betting and CFD accounts, you do not own the ETF: you are simply seeking to profit from changes in the price of that ETF.

Vince Stanzione system really works

Around 12 months ago a lady called Rachael purchased my Course making Money From Financial Spread Trading, nothing unusual about that. Then around 2 weeks after she posted a video on Youtube stating that this could be a scam and she would investigate. Whilst a little upset as the tone seemed to give the impression that she had failed before even starting I was happy that someone with no connection to me, or trying to sell another package would independently review the package for 12 months.

So here we are 12 months on and a new video has been posted. So now you know its works.

Top Tip: Diversify your financial spread bets

The advantage of trading with a financial bookmaker is that it allows you to trade numerous products such as currencies, commodities, stocks and bonds all from one account, yet most customers stick to FTSE or DOW.

By diversifying your bets you reduce risk especially in non-correlated markets, i.e. S & P500, Dow, FTSE and the Dax are all major stock indices, you can safely say if the S & P goes down, the others follow. However, if you traded one of the above and also Gold, Oil, Wheat or $/Swiss Franc, you would have a far better balanced account. Another successful strategy that I trade is trading sectors. For example, you could bet one sector to go down such as Telecommunications and one sector to go up such as Tobacco. With Financial Spread Trading you can trade over 30 major FTSE sectors both to go Long (buy) and to go Short (sell). You can also spread bet many Exchange Traded Funds which enable you to take a via on a certain sector such at Nuclear Energy, Mining or Agriculture.

Trading Tip:Money management is the key to survival

Money management is the key to survival
A good trader does not need to make money that often. In fact, you could get 80% of your trades wrong and still make money. Let’s say you lose £100 on 8 trades and you then make £500 on two trades, you are in profit. However sure you are that the market will crash or XYZ is going to soar, make your first trade a small one, and then, if you are correct, add more to that trade. Pyramiding a successful trade is the key to making large returns. Never add to a losing trade! to learn more go to www.winonmarkets.net
