The Luck of the Irish – St Patricks Day Stockmarket – Financial Spread Betting

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.

Forex Trading for Beginners – What the brokers don’t tell you

Veteran Trader Vince Stanzione with 26 years experience spills the beans on what really goes on the the FX markets.

So you have seen the adverts on CNBC, the internet or maybe been to a seminar on how forex will make you rich overnight – Sorry to tell you the reality is that 90% of retail FX clients do not make money and most accounts are wiped out in under 6 months.


But it’s not all doom and gloom money can be made from FX but not by doing what the majority do, Vince Stanzione is a self made millionaire trader with 26 years experience in trading and investing and gives beginners these tips:

  1. Forgot about buying fancy software and don’t waste your money on FX robots. It’s easy to get blown away on-line trading, real time data, charts, business channels, Iphone apps and bells and whistles. The truth is, less is more, and information overload makes you a worse trader. The more complicated your system, the less chance it will work or that you will follow it.
  2. The majority of technical trading indicators are a total waste of time and you do not need to waste money on expensive trading software that claims to predict markets. The most important factor when trading any market is the price.
  3. Day trading FX is a waste of time ultimately you will lose money. Vince did a study into new FX traders and found they made less per hour trading than working on minimum wage at McDonald’s.
  4. The most successful FX traders make money from longer term trends. Vince has held currency trades for weeks, months and even years – not quite what the media make you believe that you have to be glued to 10 screens all day. Brokers want you to over trade as that way they make more commission and spread. Trend traders and those following the Turtle trading methods no not day-trade.
  5. Whilst charts can be helpful do not look at short term charts they provide no value and are near random. Vince uses Daily, Weekly and monthly charts. The main tools he uses are trend lines, Moving averages and support and resistance levels. Keep it simple.
  6. New traders should avoid O T C FX brokers and should not use margined FX. To start with consider Exchange Traded Funds on currencies and options on currency futures. You get a better deal and have more protection using a currency futures contract than and OTC broker. Be aware what FX brokers often claim “tight spreads” which are misleading. You can look at Spread Betting currencies but you need to focus on longer term trades.
  7. 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; the market many times has already discounted the information.
  8. Trade with what you SEE not what you Think. You may think the Euro is overvalued and you may be right eventually, but if the price is moving from 126,128,132,137,144,147 it does not matter what you think, it does not matter what the “guru” on CNBC says – the price is moving up and you should be trading with the trend.
  9. Many focus on the major currency pairs but over the years Vince has made large amounts from trading the not so well covered currencies such as Norwegian Crown, Swedish Korna and South African Rand.
  10. Some times the best trades in FX are the ones you don’t make! Vince trades currencies, commodities, stocks and bonds and can move from one market to another. If the FX market is dull he will move focus and funds to commodities.New traders just think about the entry of a trade, truth is the EXIT is more important than getting in Vince comments “it’s a bit a like a relationship it’s easier to get in than to get out” also the money management and the amount you risk per trade is a factor that many do not spend enough time considering

Making a Fortune by playing the System.

MILLIONAIRE Vince Stanzione made his fortune from spread betting on the stock-market, turning his talents for predicting trends into an effective trading system.
Now he is teaching others to do the same through his product ‘Making Money From Financial Spread Trading,
He said: “We have been seeing a lot of interest from people in the over 55 age group and many who are retired and looking to increase their income by trading while savings interest rates are so low. In spite of having little or no previous investment experience they are doing really well and have proved to be excellent students.
“We are also seeing more people trading on their mobile phones and iPads, often as a sideline to their business or main job. There has been a lot of interest in commodities such as oil, gold, silver, corn, cotton and sugar in the last few months, which can all be traded through the programme.”
The Making Money From Financial Spread Trading package comes with a workbook, two DVDs a dedicated members internet site and full support.
Mr Stanzione explained: “It can be used for spread betting or regular share dealing and it shows you how to profit from makes going down as well as up. You learn to work to a system and become quite disciplined. We also provide you with a virtual account that allows you to practice before trying the real thing.

Maximum Trading Profits in Minimum Time 80/20 Rule

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.

Vince Stanzione make money tarding
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

Sell in May and go away?

Most readers will have heard of the stock market saying ‘sell in May and go away’, which is based on the historical tendency for stocks to generate most of their positive returns during the six-month period from 1 November through 30 April.

Since 1950, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has appreciated 7.4 per cent on average during this favourable period, versus only a 0.4 per cent average return in the period from 1 May to 31 October. So the argument is: why bother taking the extra risk for such a small return and not just take the cash a park it away safely after all you can make more on a cash deposit or in Treasury Bonds?

Vince Stanzione using Seasonality

Of course seasonality is a guide not a guarantee and markets can be distorted by factors such as quantitative easing (QE), in which UK and US governments have both indulged during the last couple of years, although I am not expecting a surprise announcement like last August.

The stock market (and I refer principally to US stocks) has been very strong in the historically favourable six-month period just ended. The Dow Jones index gained 14.5 per cent between 1 November and 30 April. The S&P 400, also known as the Midcap 400 or the midcap index, did even better, adding an amazing 22.5 per cent.

The Midcap can be traded via an ETF (exchange traded fund) such as the SPDR MidCap 400 ETF (NYSE:MDY), which has newly hit an all-time high but gets very little press. In the UK the FTSE250 would be a similar comparison, which many do not realise can be traded via a spread bet on an ETF – such as the iShares FTSE 250 Fund (LSE:MIDD) – but let’s get back to seasonality.

Markets to drift off in May/June?

The month of May has started off a bit weaker and after the recent strong run it should not come as a surprise if we do get a sell off and overall the major indices drift before we eventually see markets pick up again with a strong rally at the end of the year.

Of course the whole stock market does not stop, so there are still plenty of opportunities in individual shares and sectors. It’s no surprise that the sectors that tend to do better over the May to October period are the more defensive sectors, which can also be accessed via a spread bet or contract for difference (CFD) on ETFs, such as consumer staples (NYSE:XLP), healthcare (NYSE:XLV) and utilities (NYSE:XLU).

Commodities, metals and mining

I would stay away from energy (NYSE:XLE) and metals and mining (NYSE:XME) for at least the next few months.

Commodities, which have had such a strong run, also are well overdue a pullback, especially the hot markets such as silver, cotton, sugar, crude oil and copper.

Of course we should not just generalise and lump all commodities together, I would be careful about shorting grains over the summer as weather related issues could cause big moves in wheat but, overall, I believe a pullback of an average of 20 per cent is coming for most commodities. Copper looks set for a good fall as the housing market and industrial usagae continues to weaken over the next few months especially from China.

Before you try financial spread betting it is 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, two and a half hours of DVDs and a members-only website.

How To Make Big Profits Trading Financial Markets in less than 15 minutes a day

Maximum Trading Profits in Minimum Time
How To Make Big Profits Trading Financial Markets in less than 15 minutes a day

Most think that to make money from financial markets you need to be glued to a computer all day checking every price movement and news story – Well that may be true for others but for me and those following my trading system we spend no more than 15 to 20 minutes per day. My studies have shown that longer you spend watching prices the less you make.

Our aim is not to profit from every little turn, that’s a loser’s game played by those with big egos and too much time on their hands trying to call tops and bottoms. We make our money from the main trends and they can last weeks, months and even years. Take Apple Computer (APPL) I have now been in that long term trend since March 2009 and showing a 250% profit and still running. I have also been able to take profits along the way and compound those returns; I explain how that is done in my course.

Apple Up trend Vince Stanzione makes over 250% since March 2009

Another trade I have had open since the same time is Chinese Internet company Baidu (BIDU) which is up over 550%. Good trends can keep going. We can also make money from down trends as well.

BIDU Up trend Vince Stanzione makes over 550%

The majority don’t make money in financial markets and that includes the so called professionals that cannot beat an index fund yet they charge you high fees.

So if you do what the majority do then you’re going to get the same results which will be poor. You have to think and act differently to most traders.
