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

SELF-MADE MILLIONAIRE Vince Stanzione amassed a fortune and a jet-set life on the Mediterranean by gambling on stock market price movements over the internet. And now he shares the secrets of his system, insisting that it’s so simple, anyone can do it.

“Stock market traders like to build a mystique around what they do, hiding it all behind jargon to keep people out,” says Stanzione. “Phrases such as ‘spread betting’ and ‘gambling on price movements’ can initially be off-putting … but what lies behind them can be easy to learn and accessible to anyone with a modicum of common sense and a determination to earn more from their money than the miserable rates offered by today’s savings accounts.”

“You need to put aside a few stereotypes,” he continues. “This is not the world of hot-headed youths storming through the city yelling “sell”. In fact, I see a lot of interest among the 55+ age group and many retired people who’ve become fed up with seeing almost no return on their savings.”

Stanzione has turned the system that made his fortune into a personal training package called ‘Making Money From Financial Spread Trading’. Consisting

Trading’. Consisting of a workbook, two DVDs, a dedicated members-only website and full support, the package covers both spread trading and conventional sharedealing and, importantly in these unpredictable times, shows how money can be made from shares going down, and even sideways, as well as up.

“The package is designed for people with little or no experience,” says Stanzione. “I’ve demystified everything, I take students through it step by step and I provide a dummy account to practice on, all within the package. You start by studying, then you try a few small bets and work up from there at your own speed.”

you try a few small bets and work up from there at your own speed.”

“Typically, students spend around 30 minutes a day and can do it from anywhere. In fact, we’re seeing more and more people trading on their mobile phones and iPads, often as a sideline to their main job.”

The system is adaptable to different markets, such as commodities, shares, currencies and indices. “Trading trends are like fashions: they change regularly and you need to go with them. At the moment we’re seeing a lot of interest in commodities such as oil, silver, gold and coffee, which can all be traded through the programme.”

Another old trading stereotype to dismiss is the idea of “betting your shirt” on a single idea. “This is the stuff of movies. You don’t have to make money from every trade,” counsels Stanzione. “In fact, that would be very unusual. You don’t even have to make a profit from the majority of your trades. If you lose a little on eight but do well on two, you’ve sensibly spread your risk and come out in profit, which is how any prudent investor works. And you don’t ‘bet’ large amounts on a whim. If you think something’s good, invest a small amount to test the water and then go for a bigger amount if you’re happy with the result.”

Of course, there are no guarantees of a return but learning from an expert greatly improves the odds, and trading with a financial spread bet has the added attraction that profits are tax-free. Would-be traders can start with as little as £1000.
