What’s interesting whilst all of these markets can be easily traded both long and short via financial spread betting comes most do not trade these markets.

Beating The Bear – How One Veteran Trader Makes His Killing in a Falling Financial Market

Bear Baiting – A Veteran Trader on Beating the Bear Market – An interview with veteran trader Vince Stanzione, who shows how money could be made in the recent falling markets using Financial Spread Betting, Traded Options and Inverse Exchange Traded Funds

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 11 August 2011

An interview with veteran trader Vince Stanzione, who shows how money could be made in the very recent falling markets

“As Gordon Gecko says in the classic 1987 film, Wall Street: ‘It’s a zero sum game: someone wins, someone loses. Money itself isn’t lost or made, it’s simply transferred.’ When a market falls, even as dramatically as most markets did at the end of last week, investors don’t take their money right out of the system and shoebox it under the bed: they simply move it elsewhere. And that means there’s still profit to be made.”

This is the wisdom of Vince Stanzione, veteran trader of 25 years and financial coach, who has amassed a personal fortune through the volatility of recent years. “Let’s get one fact straight: money can be made whatever the market conditions. The media love their grim headlines but front page stories don’t tell you how smart traders are still earning money. The trick is to do it with small bets, spreading the risk.”

Aside from his coaching, Stanzione’s fortune comes from spread trading or spread betting: distributing investments across markets in order to make gains whatever the conditions. At its simplest, spread betting allows a trader to follow the money: if it flows out of one market – say, equities – it will be flowing into another, such as gold or bonds. “Though curiously,” points out Stanzione, “Gold may have soared, yet most private investors have not profited!”

Investment in currencies tends to stay in currencies. “In the currency markets,” says Stanzione, “people sell one currency to buy another, not to shut up shop and go home. So as the US dollar or the Euro weakens, the Swiss Franc, say, or the Japanese Yen will be strengthening. And as currencies generally weaken, bonds can strengthen. Even with the recent dollar downgrade, the US Treasury Bond market remains the largest and most liquid market in the world and acts as a safe haven.

“And if everything dives as steeply as last week, perhaps with markets, shares, currencies and commodities all dropping, the smart money switches to short selling.”

Short selling is about as popular in the media as a Liverpool looter but, says Stanzione, that’s because it’s misunderstood: “It’s never explained correctly and is always referred to as being risky, even evil. The truth is that short selling is simply part of a balanced strategy: it’s insurance for your share portfolio, no different to insuring your house or car. And over the years it’s saved my bacon many times.”

‘Shorting’ can also have the added benefit of a speedier profit: as the last two weeks have shown, markets fall far faster than they rise, so earning through short selling is a matter of days, not weeks or months. Two key ways to sell ‘short’ are traded option (Puts) and the Inverse Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), or Note (ETN), nowadays quite popular in the US and UK.


“The advantage of the put option is that once you’ve paid your premium, although of course you aim to make a profit, the option cannot go below 0 so you know the maximum loss you’re exposed to,” says Stanzione. “And the benefit over a spread bet is that you’re buying time. Let’s say you think silver is going down, and you buy, but silver carries on going up for a while before falling: with a spread bet you would likely have been stopped out before profiting from the fall. With a put option, you benefit even if the fall takes a while. If you stick to the basics, traded options are not as complicated as they may seem at first glance. You make the choices but your broker does the hard work.”

An Inverse ETF, on the other hand, is a financial instrument designed to do the opposite of whatever the underlying market does. For example the ETF short Cotton goes up as the price of Cotton goes down. A FTSE 100 inverse ETF – such as DB X Trackers FTSE 100 short issued by Deutsche Bank – can be bought via a normal online broker and is not subject to stamp duty or any extra margin requirements. “Inverse ETFs are not perfect and are not ideal for long term shorting as they’re reset daily and the compounding effect can give unexpected results,” says Stanzione, “but over the short term, and if markets are falling steadily, they do a good job.”

Short selling is normally a short-term activity. But falling markets can also offer more traditional gains, especially for the canny investor who, once again, thinks beyond the headlines. “Some of the best times to buy are when the media’s baying, the crowd is terrified and there’s blood on the streets. Markets go down through a lack of buyers, not because sellers have withdrawn. So for people who were still buying, there have been some terrific opportunities over the past few days and that’s one of the reasons why the indices have risen again today.”

Bounce-backs follow falls and are another place to make money, especially if a bounce is quite large. But Stanzione urges caution: “A bounce back this week does not mean a long-term recovery. Markets will stay volatile until at least October and even then 10%+ falls in major market indices will become common. The way to profit in such volatility is by spreading the risk with small bets.”

Stanzione is a firm believer in spreading risk and not over-reacting in the very short term. Spread betting provides a profit from markets which go down and up, and even allow investors to trade sideways, making it ideal for today’s markets.

“’Day trading’ and short-term bets may sound exciting,” says Stanzione, “but, in truth, my wealth has not come from there. It’s come from trading trends over weeks, months and years. Brokers and bookmakers like to generate more business from active customers but the overall winners can be the more sedentary traders. Perhaps surprisingly, when I look at my own trading students, the best results come from the over-55s, an age group that has learned patience. And I am not normally glued to a screen all day and only check prices at the end of the day and, on some trades, only once a week.”

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.

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.

Why 90% of Spread Betting Traders lose money — and what can you do about it

What Losing Traders Do

Vince Stanzione has been trading futures, options and equities for around 25 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 I am 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.

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.
