Best Sectors so far in 2013 – Financial Spread Betting Sectors ETFs

The table below shows the best and worst Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) so far in 2013. One area I really like and have done for a few years is the Biotech -Pharma sector. As you will see 5 of the top 10 ETFs are in this sector and that comes on the back of a very strong 2012. On the weak side we see mining and metals have been a awful for anyone that has been long. The good news is with financial spread betting you can easily profit from down moves going short. Many look at just the FTSE100, S&P500 or Dow Jones which has been strong in 2013 but under the surface sectors show that not everything has been going up.

And a weak one

We can trade a “pairs trade” so be short the weak sector and long a strong on. To learn more about how to profit from financial trading, Spread betting, CFDs,Options using a step by step system just go to

How to Profit from falling Gold prices

Whilst the last decade has been good for Gold bulls we have also had some very good opportunities to make money from falling gold prices. One of the easiest ways for those in the UK is to use Financial Spread Betting. For example IG Index are currently quoting 1593.4 to sell and 1594.0 to buy so if we went to back a view that Gold is going lower we would sell at 1593.4 in this example I have gone short £100 a point (the minimum  is £10 with IG Index).

Vince Stanzione Gold short IG Index

At some stage we will want to close our bet so we will then want to buy to close. The difference between what we sold at and the lower price that we can buy back to cover at is our profit. Of course if we are short and Gold prices carry on going up then we would have to cover and buy back at a higher price.

The video below also explains more.

Why Day Traders Never Win Long Term

With all the labour saving devices, computers, mobile phones and the various “time saving” gadgets why is it that most people never have any time or are always in such a rush? In a society which continues to strive for instant, quick, real time, disposable and easy goods and services it comes as a shock to many that I continue to make massive profits from taking a longer term view and a rather simple trend trading approach.

When the Dow Jones Index was first calculated in 1896 it was disseminated once a day at the close.

In 1923 the price was released every hour and in 1963 the price went real time. Today we have a 24 hour price thanks to Globex, Financial Bookmakers and the Indicative Dow quoted in Germany.

Many still think that the switch in 1923 to hourly prices helped to fuel the 1929 crash.
While progress and technology should be embraced in many cases understand that quicker is not always better, microwave food may be quick and easy but does it taste that good?

Daily prices and weekly charts still work best. For my own trading 99% of my trading ideas come to me at the weekend when everything is shut.

A good tip to make money in any financial market is work on the “less is more” principle. Sometimes the best trades are the ones you don’t make.

Right now I am seeing lots of people rushing in to FX or Forex Trading thinking that its “easy money” I assure you its not and most of these robot software systems are nothing

Biz Opps UK Review of Vince Stanzione

Vince Stanzione, Spread Betting and First Information

Vince Stanzione is perhaps best known for his trading exploits, being a self-made millionaire who makes upward of £50,000 per month trading the financial markets.

 An ex-city trader and veteran of the financial markets, Vince has been training ordinary people to trade successfully since the mid-1990s.

 Vince’s tool is “spread betting” and he promises that he can teach you how to make £400 per day from this type of trading, which he calls “Financial Spread Trading”.

 His main product is a home study course called “Making Money from Financial Spread Trading” which is available for £347.

This pack, according to Vince, will show you how to trade popular financial indices like the Dow Jones and FTSE 100 from as little as £10 total risk. Uniquely, it also covers the less popular markets such as commodities, FTSE 350 sectors, currencies, UK shares, US stocks, indices and much more.

He packs in information he has gathered from over 20 years as a professional trader.

Although he hasn’t always been successful (he freely admits to losing everything in the 1987 stock market crash), Vince has made a fortune from spread trading.

Whilst most were losing their heads and their shirts in the great “dot com” boom and bust in the late 90s, Stanzione profitably traded the market on the way up and then also on the way down.

Soon after that, he was featured in several national newspapers.

In 2003 Vince was the subject of a two-page feature in the Sunday Observer where the journalist centred on his success speculating on the price of Antofagasta (a UK company) and also Gold.

According to the article Vince’s trading statements showed he had lost £57,000 over the previous 3 months on a handful of trades but profited to the tune of £400,000 on other trades in the same period – a net gain of £343,000 over 3 months.

On seeing this article, and research about Vince, I bought his course in early 2004.

The 2004 edition of his course contained the following:

  • 180+ page workbook including Vince’s secret trading strategies
  • 120+ minute video or DVD showing edited footage from a £2,500 seminar
  • ShareScope Demo CD
  • BetOnMarkets Interactive CD with free £10 bet
  • Access to TrendSpotter service
  • Copy of Vince’s book “How to Stop Existing and Start Living” which he wrote once he made his first million aged just 26.
  • Access to a virtual trading account (see link below)
  • Lifetime access to a special website with free quotes, updates and financial news from Vince


The workbook itself contains a great deal of information on the basics of spread betting and then goes on to suggest some time-tested strategies for trading the financial markets.

Every 6 months or so I thoroughly read the workbook and make notes to remind myself of Vince’s advice and his ‘golden rules’ of trading. I then watch through the DVD a couple of times – I find it helps to refresh the memory regularly and avoid bad habits which can harm a trading account.

The 2009 course has been updated even further to accommodate new strategies Vince has found and is using.

Vince offers a 100% money back, 1 year guarantee, promising to refund customers in full if they do not make money after following the advice he gives in the course.


If you are looking to learn about Financial Spread Trading then this course is an excellent investment. It contains quality advice and some clever trading strategies and at £347 offers good value for money.

I have used this course and one strategy in particular to make money trading UK shares – it allowed me to pick up a share which was about to rise considerably because, unknown to me or anyone else, it was about to be bought out.

Over just 5 months I traded the share from 475p to 603p following Vince’s advice and made a very healthy profit – tax-free of course!

Because of my success with this course, my satisfaction with the information contained within it and the 100% money-back guarantee I am happy to recommend Making Money from Financial Spread Trading.
