Trading gold

I have opened a sell trade on gold.  There hasn’t been any major movements or anything but the signal looks like it’s there to stay at the moment, but who knows.  Also keeping a very close eye on Paddy power, Nike, and British American.  They have all given signals one way or another although I’m just not sure if they’re actually going to go that way?  So I can’t follow the signals just yet. if you have a look at the charts you’ll understand what I mean.

Any good trades going?

So far in the second quarter I have yet to make a trade!  And I must say I’m almost tempted just to get in on something and that’s ridiculous.  The gold trade hasn’t fully materialised either way yet, I thought it was going to give a buy signal but it looks like it may be a sell?  I’ll rephrase that actually, it has given a very early sell signal.  So why haven’t I made a trade?  Actually there is no particular reason but with all those opportunities out there surely I could find something worth trading?  But I just haven’t.  I haven’t experienced this before but I suppose it happens? On the other side of the coin I’m not just going to trade for the sake of it that’s for sure.

On another note, I cannot wait until the Vince Stanzione seminar, I am really wondering what weapons he’s going to give us to add to our arsenal?  Also really excited that Paul McKenna is going to be there…  Also there are  going to be a load of other traders there some of which have made millions apparently using his systems…  The mind boggles. It’s going to be great to chat to them though.

So I am going to keep an eye on gold and hopefully identify a couple of other trades this week.  Also I’m going to set up another blog about all my other website businesses instead of updating here; obviously I will add some links and keep you up to speed but you can always go there if you are interested.

I have started to review a couple of other products and if they look any good I shall let you know.  Both are about building a passive online income.  Although I’m thinking of writing my own product as a free give away, so watch this space…

Maybe gold?

I didn’t open any trades this week mainly because the DJ gave a sell signal and it has unsettled the market somewhat.  I was going to go on Nike again but I’m just not sure where that’s going?

Also I have been reading a book called how I made $2,000,000 on the stock market.  I bought it a while ago and just never read it, but I had a chance over the Easter and got stuck in.  If I didn’t have family down I could have finished it easily in a couple of days as have found it a really good read.  It is dated but the principles seems sound;  and the story is fascinating.

I am hoping gold will materialise into a buy?  So keeping a close eye on this, if it gives a true signal this is what I shall open this coming week.


Been really busy [as always] with the niche site business and will update that page over this weekend.  If you’re looking to make some extra cash easily outside of spread trading you should really have a look at this opportunity as I think it’s going to be a real winner.






All booked up.

I’m going to Vince Stanzione seminar with my partner…  I can’t wait, it looks amazing.  As much as I am looking forward to the financial trading day i’m  equally looking forward to the Internet marketing day.

So we are into the second quarter, i’m out of all my trades and I’m looking at couple of fresh ones for after Easter. I have done really well out of these but opted out of rolling over or reversing positions. Although nike is the only one I may reopen.

I’ve mentioned this before but a cost effective way to start spread trading is buying the index around holidays.  If you have got stock traders almanac [not sure if it’s in every issue] it has a brilliant article on trading just before the holidays over the last 50 years.  Good thing about it is the emotion has been taken out, you don’t have to make any decisions, just buy the index and put your stop loss in.  You can also do a fixed odd bet at bet on markets, so for example £50.00 bet that the market goes up.  Obviously yesterday was a winner but paper trade this theory for six months or a year and see how it goes?  It’s not going to cost you anything and you can get a feel for how things work if you haven’t done this before.  I’m thinking of doing it for a whole year next year, compounding the interest and going again.
