With Financial Spread Betting and buying Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) it is possible to profit from a particular sector rather than just the overall S&P500 or FTSE100/ For example if I wanted to get exposure to just the Financial Sector, I could buy an ETF or Spread Bet an ETF (XLF) or the (IYF) Most financial bookmakers such as IG Index will allow you to do this.
Below example of Spread Betting a Sector with IG Index
With a few days of 2012 left here are the best sectors so far this year.
Below you will find a great video by Chris from http://thespreadtrader.wordpress.com/ which has some tips on money management. Chris is one of my students and bought Making Money From Financial Spread Trading. My experience is that most using Financial Spread Betting or other forms of trading don’t spend enough time on a simple Money Management plan. Often those with smaller accounts don’t bother and their goal is to make as much money as possible and go all in one or two bets and I don’t need to tell you what normally happens.
Many books have been written on Money Management with complicated formulas. The key should be that no one trade should ever cause you so much damage financially or emotionally that you cannot continue. How every sure you are the XYZ is going to rocket, only a percentage of your trading bank should be risked.
“However “smart” we think we are in trading and investing we are dealing with unknowns, what is known and what we can control is how much we decide to risk on each trade, and that is what you should be spending more time on. It’s not all about knowing when to buy and sell all systems can go through bad runs and that’s when you money management really saves you.”

With St. Paddy’s day coming up fast (Saturday 17th March) and every one being in a slightly better mood as the days become lighter (US clocks have already changed) and many parties being organised all over the US (remember Wall Street has massive Irish roots – the NYSE is normally lit up in Green) and a Guinness or two being consumed it was interesting to see how this effects markets.
The run up to St Patrick’s Day which is also the triple witching week as March futures and options expire and June becomes the front month has seen gains in over 79% of the time over the last 20 years. Average gains around 1% – the week following tends to be less positive as traders return back on Monday with sore heads. So based on history the Dow has ever chance to close at over 13000 to 13050.
On the subject of Guinness makes Diageo (LSE:DGE or NYSE:DEO) closed at an all-time high yesterday and as you know from my seminars I have owned these since 2007 and forms part of my core Tobacco, Alcohol, Gaming and Fast Foods holdings.

What Losing Traders Do – Multi Millionaire Trader Gives You Some Priceless Pointers
Vince Stanzione has been trading futures, options and equities for around 26 years. As well as trading his own money he has traded money for banks and been a broker for private clients. Over the years Vince has been fascinated to discover the difference between winners and losers in this business.
Try to learn from the points he is about to give you.
1. Many traders trade without a plan. They do not define specific risk and profit objectives before trading. Even if they establish a plan, they “second guess” it and don’t stick to it, particularly if the trade is a loss. Consequently, they over trade and use their equity to the limit (are undercapitalised), which puts them in a squeeze and forces them to liquidate positions. Usually, they liquidate the good trades and keep the bad ones.
2. Many traders don’t realise the news they hear and read has, in many cases, already been discounted by the market. Often, new traders jump into a market based on a story in the morning paper; the market many times has already discounted the information.
3. After several profitable trades, many speculators become wild and un-conservative. They base their trades on hunches and long shots, rather than sound fundamental and technical reasoning, or put their money into one deal that “can’t fail.”
4. Traders often try to carry too big a position with too little capital, and trade too frequently for the size of the account.
5. They fail to predefine risk, add to a losing position, and fail to use stops.
6. They frequently have a directional bias; for example, always wanting to be long. A good trader should be happy to trade up or down.
7. Lack of experience in the market causes many traders to become emotionally and/or financially committed to one trade, and unwilling or unable to take a loss. They may be unable to admit they have made a mistake.
8. They over trade. Many new traders after opening a Financial Spread betting account are like a child with a new toy. They want to trade anything and everything. The new internet dealing offered by most bookmakers has made it even worse.
9. Many traders can’t (or don’t) take the small losses. They often stick with a losing trade until it really hurts, then take the loss. This is an undisciplined approach…a trader needs to develop and stick with a system. If you are following charts and a trendline or moving average is broken, you must stick to your rules.
“All through time, people have basically acted and re-acted the same way in the market as a result of: greed, fear, ignorance, and hope. That is why formations and patterns re-occur on a constant basis.”
10. Many traders break a cardinal rule: “Cut losses short. Let profits run.” Emotion makes many traders hold a losing trade too long. Many traders don’t discipline themselves to take small losses and big gains.

Introduction to Spread Betting – What you need to know
Financial Spread betting also know as Financial Spread Trading has seen massive growth over the last decade in the UK and is a flexible and tax-efficient way to back anything from shares, currencies, commodities, Bonds, stock indices and even house prices.
Financial spread betting lets you gain exposure to the performance of key markets, without having to put up the full value of the transaction as you’re trading on margin.
So you can profit from market moves while only putting forward a margin deposit as collateral, this can be as low as 10% of the contract value.
As your transaction is a bet, your profits are free from UK capital gains tax and income tax, and trades on individual shares are free from stamp duty. Those outside the UK may also be able to Spread Bet however the same tax advantages do not apply.
One of the major advantages of financial spread betting over conventional share trading is that it is just as easy to go short as it is to go long. That is, you can profit even when a particular market is falling, you simply open a SELL/DOWN bet rather than a BUY/UP bet. Other methods of shorting shares are often expensive and not easily available to smaller private traders.
Financial Spread betting can be used to trade from less than one minute up to 12 months and can be used to cover a range of different investment strategies. For instance, you could use spread bets to hedge the value of your existing holdings, Hedge against a currency exchange movement or to speculate on market volatility. You also have the flexibility to respond quickly to any changes in market conditions as most Financial Spread Betting companies are open 24 hours a day.
As the popularity of Financial Spread Betting has grown so have the number of Financial Spread Betting Brokers, as traders this is good news as the competition has lead to better products, lower spreads and smaller bet sizes.
Another advantage is the ability to trade in your base currency for instance sterling, even though the market may be traded in US Dollar for example Gold or Oil, this means you don’t have to worry about exchange rates.
Get some good training before you dive in
Before starting Spread Betting it’s a good idea to get good independent training. One of the best known courses is produced by self made multi millionaire Vince Stanzione who has been trading for own 25 years. His course is ideal for those starting out and you can learn from his vast experience.
Do you know the 80/20 rule to making Money from Financial Markets?
Ever wondered why some people make so much money in trading whilst the majority make little or nothing?
You may have heard of the 80-20 rule. It came from an Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto. He observed that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population. He also noted that 80 percent of his peas were produced by 20 percent of his peapods. In short,
80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts.
If you want to be a profitable trader, there’s no need to spend 14 hours a day glued to a screen. Just learn the important 20%, and you’ll beat 80% of all the professional fund managers. The principle that’s used in Making Money From Financial Spread Trading Program by Vince Stanzione.
The tools that Vince uses allow him to scan over 20,000 shares, currencies, bonds, indices, and commodities in less than 1 minute. He’ll see only the ones that give him the best opportunities of success.
Traders who follow a system do far better, because they’re following a franchise with tools and support rather than trying to do it all themselves and start from scratch.
Trading is one of the few businesses left where you can start with such a low investment and avoid all the hassles of a regular business.
You do, however, need the right training.
It’s your choice. Either be one of the 80% hitting a brick wall trying to figure out what works, or join the 20% that are already cashing in and achieving a far better lifestyle. To discover more go to www.winonmarkets.net
If you have a £2 coin to hand then take a look at what is inscribed on the side and if you don’t have one it says “Standing on the Shoulders of Giants”.
The words made famous by Sir Isaac Newton: “If I can see further than anyone else, it is only because I am standing on the shoulders of giants”.
So what’s this got to do with making money from trading and investing?
Well if you want to get ahead and make an extra £100 to £2000+ per day then learning from a trading “giant” makes sense.
Why on earth would you want to learn about making money from someone who doesn’t have any? Does that make any sense to you? Me neither yet most trading systems and courses are taught be “dwarfs” who have never made any money trading and don’t have over 25 years of experience.
Whatever field you’re looking to excel in, if you learn and follow a dwarf you will become one – but by standing on the shoulders of giants you give yourself the best advantage.
