New Year, New Profits

Welcome everyone to 2015. A year that I am very excited about. This year I hope to provide more focus to the website and the service it is now providing to almost 200 members. I plan to work hard this year to help as many people as possible adopt a consistently profitable trading system, but [...]

Hey everyone. Just threw this one up today to show the Spreadbetting profits I've been getting from the financial markets. As the year starts to come to a close I can say it's been relatively successful and i'm set right now to end on a 30%+ return again this year. Can't argue with that. If [...]

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. [...]

Hey guys, I just wanted to create this new video for members giving a bit of advice on how you could try diversifying your open positions a little to protect yourselves from big moves happening in the market. It also very briefly coveres a little about Sharescope as well as some of the new features [...]

I don't tend to check my trades everyday. As Ive said in the past, I look at longer term trends. Think daily charts, using 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages. This means that on days like today where the market has tanked a lot of my open positions have suffered, as has my overall [...]

Its a difficult time in the market at the moment. One minute your making easy gains every day, watching your balance rise, the next day you've lost everything you've just raked in and are left with less than you started. This year has started well, my bank is growing and i'm up just under 10% [...]

I've posted an up to date copy of my trading record tonight taking me up right up until the present day. So far in 2013 i've achieved a 52.48% return. Lessened slightly by the fact I have topped up my investment into this project to a nice even £2000, previously being at £1849. Why? Well, [...]

    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 [...]

By Chris Chillingworth Ever since I started Spreadbetting in 2011 i've had a number of questions about strategies, psychology and risk. The majority I found the answer to by asking mentors, reading trading books, interacting with other traders or simply out of making my own mistakes and learning from them. Despite this, once question still [...]
