In case you missed it, the UK FTSE250 has hit an all-time high, the FTSE100 is now up 65% from the 2009 low and in the US the Dow Jones and S&P500 are inching closer to record new highs, the smaller cap Russell 2000 already is at an all-time high.
Yet the majority of smaller investors are totally out of shares according to trading guru Vince Stanzione from fintrader.net who has been bullish for some years now. “The public just don’t believe the rally Stanzione says” “it’s a classic case of investors panicking and selling out at the bottom and then finally getting back into stocks near the tops” however he still believes we are sometime away from reaching that point and is looking for the Dow Jones to break past the 14200 all-time high level in 2013. He adds “when everyone is talking about shares and your friendly cab driver tells you how much he just made trading ARM holdings then it’s time to get out”
According to Stanzione the overall private investor has no appetite for shares and in fact many of his sources indicate that those using Financial Spread Betting are in fact short which means they are betting on the market going down, so far anyone doing that is losing money heavily. “Most investors are sitting in cash paying near zero rates or bonds paying not much more.” Stanzione adds there has been more public interest in the Foreign Exchange FX market and Gold however he sees that as a negative and believes better opportunities are in the stockmarket especially US shares.

It’s often quoted that 90% of all Financial Spread Betting and FX accounts do not make money. From my research this figure also stands true for most retail stockbroking accounts so it’s not just Spread Betting. It’s also said that 90% of professional money managers do not beat an index fund.
So what separates the 10% winners from the 90% that lose? In this video you will find some tips from Vince Stanzione. Regardless of if you’re using Spread Betting, CFDs or buying and selling shares via an online broker it’s important to treat trading and investing as a business and not some bit of fun. The winning traders have a system (which does not need to be complicated) but it must have a defined way to get in and out of a trades.
It’s also important to realise that many of your trades will not be successful and that is just part of the business, what is important is to limit the losses on those trades so no one trade however sure you are ends up causing you to lose a large percentage of your account.
I have found over my 27 years of trading and investing that we can learn as much from losing traders as winning ones, if we can identify the patterns of a losing trader and then ensure that we do not do the same then we will be successful.
