A lot of people have heard about compounding interest or compounding profits in trading, but few truly realise the benefits of it. I personally realised the power of compounding when I first came across a .pdf file from someone who claimed to be able to turn 1p to £1,000,000 in 28 steps or something similar. [...]

    In 2012 I finished the year with a 2.7% return on my investment. About as much as you might get from a bank savings account if your lucky. On the face of things it wasn't really a success because I at one point saw highs of 40% return around the end of summer [...]

18 months into my trading and I've heard all about the importance of having a trading strategy, keeping to the rules and not trading off emotion etc. This is all well and good, but I often think you have to experience the bad to appreciate the good and recently I have been experiencing some bad [...]

If there’s one thing i’ve learnt more than anything in my short career trading the financial markets it’s that my mind is my own worst enemy. A few weeks ago I sat down and looked at my trade history since June. It’s a pleasant picture at the moment, up in profit and looking at a [...]

Hey everyone. This week i've thrown up another video. A little shorter this time and with much worse lighting :) On this one I take you through my money management system. These are money control techniques i've learnt from a number of different traders including Vince Stanzione, however I have adapted and changed to my [...]

It's been a bit stop start this blog. Started in April 2011 and it's closed 3-4 times when I thought I hated blogging and then re-opened a few weeks later when I realised I enjoyed blogging too much......(don't ask, not even I know what i'm talking about). Anyhow, over that time the readers have come [...]
