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
Millionaire Trader Vince Stanzione says that you should never get married to your position if you want to be a successful trader. A good trader should be happy to go long or short the same market or stock. Also sticking to the same share or market just because it’s been good to you in the past is not the way to profit. Many get stuck in to a losing trade “hoping” it will get better when the best option is cut and start again.
Also whilst just staying with one or two markets may sound good practice I have found it’s better to play the field and have plenty of options open to you. If you decide to trade just the Euro/$ or just the S&P500 there will be times when those markets are just not offering great trading opportunities but you can bet that other markets will be offering better risk/reward trades. My system teaches how to trade Currencies, commodities, world-wide stocks, Indices and Bonds giving you the most ways to profit.

A special note from Multi-Millionaire Trader: Vince Stanzione
For the last 10 years commodities have been soaring yet over 90% of investors have little or no exposure to commodities. Gold have gone from $250 to $1500 in the last decade and Silver has gone from $5 to $46 a staggering 800% return. Whilst short term these markets look over extended the overall trend is up. Remember we can also make money from falling markets as well.
Most think trading and investing in commodities is complicated and risky however my course shows how to get exposure to commodities with strictly limited risk. You use commodities every day, coffee, sugar, gasoline (petrol), cotton, corn, wheat, lean hogs to name a few, so does it not make sense to invest in them?
Do you realise what is happing to your money? – Its slowly being stolen away from you, with inflation and devaluation and over the coming year’s money will become worth less and less. If you’re in debt and own nothing then you have nothing to worry about, but if you have savings and any assets you need to act as paper (FAIT) money will just keep being printed by the major central banks. In my course I explain exactly what’s happening and what you need to do to protect and profit from these events. If you own an ounce of gold or silver then regardless of what “paper money” does you own a physical asset that can be exchanged for in any currency or goods you decide.
If you’re sick of earning 1% a year on your hard earned savings, fed up of investing with “experts” that can’t beat a blind folded monkey and consistently lose your money but still charge you high fees or have tried a trading system, but failed miserably because it was too difficult, too complicated or just too time consuming… then read on as I am about to expose the secrets the professionals don’t tell you.

Goldman Bearish On Commodities Near-Term; Positive On 1 Year
LONDON, Apr 15, 2011 (Dow Jones Commodities News via Comtex) — Goldman Sachs maintained a bearish stance on commodities on a near-term basis, but raised several of its one-year prices estimates in a note to clients Friday.
While recommending a shift to an underweight commodity allocation in the short-term, Goldman analysts reiterated their view that several commodity markets, led by oil, will see demand outstrip supply later next year.
As a result, the investment bank raised its 12-month price forecasts for WTI and Brent crude oil, RBOB gasoline, USGC heating oil, Nymex natural gas, U.K. NBP natural gas, CBOT corn and NYBOT cocoa from previous estimates released in late March.
The most significant increase was in corn, which saw a 20% bump up in its one-year forecast from 580 cents a bushel to 700 cents a bushel. The bank increased its 12-month forecasts for WTI and Brent crude oil by 50 cents each, to $103.50 a barrel and $107 a barrel respectively.
“We maintain that commodity returns still have upside on a 12-month horizon, particularly following the correction in oil prices that we anticipate, barring further oil supply shocks,” the bank said in a note to clients. “We therefore maintain an overweight recommendation to commodities on a 12-month horizon.”
The note follows Monday’s announcement that Goldman is closing its long crude, copper, cotton and palladium basket trade, or CCCP, due to unfavorable near-term risk-reward indicators.

Financial Spread Betting has been available for over 30 years however in the last 10 years its popularity has really exploded. Tens of thousands of retail investors everywhere from the UK and Europe, to Australia and South Africa trade shares, currencies, bonds and commodities on the financial stock markets daily. Here are some of the reasons why it has become so popular.
Tax Free in UK
Unlike traditional share dealing, you pay no taxes on your profits. They are not considered profits under tax laws, but a winning bet, and as such Capital Gains Tax does not apply. The transactions also involve no stamp duty, as the underlying share or commodity is never actually purchased – it’s just a bet on whether or not the value will rise or fall.
No fees or commission
Spread-betting companies don’t charge commissions or brokerage fees. They include all costs in their spread. The last few years competition has become fierce with spread as low as 1 point.
Profit from rising or falling markets
One of the biggest advantages of spread betting is that it doesn’t matter in which direction the market is going – you can still make money. A profit can be made in a falling market as well as in a rising one. Also with fixed odds bets you can also profit from a range or dull market effectively betting on a market to do nothing.
Trade on Margin
Spread betting is leveraged, which means you only need to bet a small percentage of the value of your trades. You can make the bet using a fraction of the money it would require if you wanted to buy the actual shares from a stockbroker. This is also known as gearing. You can also choose the size of your stake, often much smaller than would be the case if you were speculating on the underlying market.
Wide Range of Markets
You can access thousands of markets from one account stock Indices, currencies, bonds commodities, shares or even, in some cases, house prices. Most Financial Bookmakers allow you to trade directly from a website without the need to download any additional software.
24 hour access
Some spread betting companies are open 24 hours a day from Sunday night to Friday night. This allows trading in hours even when underlying markets are closed. Dealing can be done online or by phone. You can now also trade with your mobile phone or smartphone including apps that are available for the Iphone, Ipad and Blackberry devices, so you can trade whenever or wherever is convenient for you.
Control your losses
You can set limits on the losses you are prepared to take. These are known as Stop Losses, or Limit Orders. They offer protection against massive losses if the market moves against you. Also most Financial Bookmakers offer Controlled Risk Bets (CRBs) meaning that even if a stop cannot be filled in the underlying market you would still be protected.
Spread-betting can be used as a hedging tool to offset against losses in your other portfolio. For example, if you own shares which are decreasing in value in the short term, you can bet on the value falling, and make a profit to offset against the loss in value of the shares you hold. Many investors use spread-betting to hedge against losses. Another popular hedge is Gold, say you had some Gold coins and your worried that Gold will fall but do not want to sell their coins you could spread bet gold to go down which would protect you.
The spread betting industry is tightly regulated. In the UK, this is by the Financial Services Authority (FSA). It means strict rules apply and the firms offering it are secure and safe.
Before you try Financial Spread Betting it’s well worth getting some good advice and training.

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.
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.
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.

Vince Stanzione explains what spread betting is in plain English.
Financial Spread betting also known as Financial Spread Trading is a way that traders can back shares, currencies, commodities, bonds and many other financial markets in many cases with relatively small stakes. Markets can be traded from one account both online, by phone and now on many mobile devices such as the Iphone.
In the UK it is tax free and offers the opportunity to make a profit whether the market goes up or down. It offers access to a wide range of markets from Indices (like the FTSE 100), 1000’s of individual shares, commodities and currency exchange rates.
A financial Bet: Unlike traditional share-dealing, you never own the actual share or commodity. You are simply making a bet on whether you think it will go up or down in value. You stake a certain amount of money per point movement – the more it moves in your favour the more money you make, the more it moves against your prediction, the more you lose. The good news is that your risk can be strictly limited using a guaranteed stop loss. So if you stake £1 a point with 100 point stop, your maximum risk is £100.
The Spread: The spread is the difference between the price you can buy at and the price you can sell at. You will buy at the higher price if you think the market will rise (Go Long or Up Bet), or sell at the lower price if you think the market will fall (Go Short or Down Bet). The tighter the spread, the smaller the market has to move for you to make a profit. No commission or funding costs are charged in spread betting the costs are all built in to the spread.
What can I Spread Bet on?
Individual Shares – Shares in individual companies from almost any market in the world including UK, US, Europe, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore to name a few.
Stock market indices – Popular indices are the FTSE 100 and Dow Jones, but other indices such as the Nikkei 225, Eurostoxx 50, NASDAQ, S&P 500 or DAX can also be traded.
Commodities – The last few years has seen a surge in trading on commodities such as Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Gold, Silver, Copper, Palladium, Wheat, Cotton, Coffee Cattle, Soybeans and of course those famous Pork Bellies.
Currencies – Another hot area especially for shorter term traders is the Foreign Exchange market (Forex or FX). Popular currency pairs include EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, GBP/EUR, EUR/JPY and many more.
Interest rates and Bonds – Short term or long term interest rates, Government Bonds or gilts.
How does a Spread Bet work?
First, you select your market – Let’s take an individual share e.g. McDonalds.
Start by checking the price quoted by the spread betting company – it will reflect the actual share price. There will always be two figures – the sell price and the buy price, the sell price will be lower. For example, it could be 7450-7460. The 10 points difference is the spread.
You must decide if you think the price of McDonalds shares will go up higher than the buy price, or fall lower than the sell price. If you think higher, you “buy” at the buy price, if you think lower you “sell” at the sell price.
Now, you must decide how much you are betting, that is, what your stake is – this is the amount of money you gain or lose per point of movement on the value of the share. It is always expressed in currency per point of movement e.g. £1 per point.
In spread betting you do not have to pay the full cost of what the share would be to buy – You will only have to pay a percentage – this is called trading on margin. But spread betting companies will require you to have a certain amount on deposit to cover potential losses (exactly how much varies from company to company and this figure is often called the Initial Margin Requirement).
You can close a trade at any time (as long as the underlying market is open) whether you are making a profit or a loss. You do not have to meet any specific value on any specific date.
A Spread Bet Example
So let’s consider our McDonalds example, it’s currently January and quotes are being made on June 2011 contracts – your spread betting company currently has a quote of 7450-7460. Two weeks later the share price increased in value to a quote of 7600-7610.
Example 1: Going Long
So you buy £5 a point of McDonalds at 7460 as you think the price will rise.
The price moves to 7600-7610.
You take your profit and sell at 7600.
Profit = (7600-7460) x 5.
Your profit is £700.
Example 2: Going Short
So you sell £5 a point of McDonalds at 7450 as you think the price will fall.
The price moves to 7480-7490 and you decide to get out
You cut your losses and buy at 7490
Loss = (7450-7490) x 5.
Your loss is £200.
