THE QE PARTY IS OVER

There is no doubt that in the past decade we have witnessed some of the most incredible growth in equity prices that we have ever seen over any 10-year period. In fact, the UK benchmark stock market, the FTSE100, took just 6 years to double in value from its lows at around 3,500 in March 2009 to just under 7,000 in March 2015 – that’s a whopping 16% annualised return… Read More

BULLET-PROOFING BREXIT

There is only one word on the lips of investors right now and that is ‘Brexit’. It is a small word, indeed only six characters in length and yet its impact has been so prolific that it has fuelled the most heated debate in a generation and has divided a nation. It is the ultimate marmite question if ever there was one, either you love it, or you hate it. Read More

THE PUMP AND DUMP SCANDAL

I’m no author but I have just recently finished writing my first (and last) ever book, entitled “The 13 Insider Trading Secrets that will blow your mind” It’s an expose of what goes on in the City from the 20+ years that I have been in the game and specifically it talks about how trading and investing in general is rigged in favour of the professionals against the retail investors. There… Read More

WHY DO INVESTORS STILL NOT UNDERSTAND BONDS?

When the stock market volatility is not doing you any favours and when the banks are screwing you for every penny saved that you have worked so hard for, it makes you wonder why investors still fail to recognise the obvious sanctuary of fixed income investments. I mean, just think about it for a second. The stock market has been booming for a decade since the collapse in 2008 and… Read More

 IS THIS THE EASIEST INVESTMENT STRATEGY EVER?

Everybody is in search of the holy grail of investing, right? We are all out there looking for this one silver bullet that will solve all of our financial woes and of course along the way there are plenty of mistakes that are being made by investors. However, one of the biggest mistakes that are being made in my opinion is that people are over-complicating things in search of making… Read More

WHY EUROPE IS FALLING AND WHY IT IS A GOOD TIME TO BUY

One of the most common debates that I have with my clients and investors generally is whether it is better to be a long term buy and hold investor or if in fact it makes more financial sense to trade the stock market. Advocates on either side will tell you why theirs is the most compelling argument. For example, a buy and hold investor will tell you that ‘it’s not… Read More

GET READY FOR THE DAY AHEAD

Putting yourself under duress is not only important but necessary. That’s because the physical body and the mental state of the mind are inextricably linked. Therefore, and unlike people who like to wake up slowly, have a nice cup of coffee, have a full English breakfast and then ease their way into the day, I am the polar opposite. Yes, I like coffee as much as the next person and… Read More

DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE SCAMMERS

It’s so annoying when good, hard working people get scammed out of their money. It’s even worse when those good, hard working people are vulnerable either because of their age, their health, their lack of experience or knowledge or maybe it’s just because they are less able to protect themselves. What I’m talking about of course are the boiler room scammers and con artists selling you the dream that doesn’t… Read More

KIM JONG-UN AND TRUMP FINALLY GET IT ON

I’m a firm believer in speaking my mind and I think most traders are. I think that’s because when I search for opportunities in the market I have to be sure, I mean really sure. There can be no doubt in my mind, not even a flicker of doubt. The moment that doubt enters your mind, the trade is probably lost because you have just entered a new whole world… Read More

INHERITANCE TAX,WHY YOU SHOULDN’T PAY

You may not know this about me but I regard myself as a modern-day Robin Hood. That’s because I steal from the rich and give to the poor. Now before you call the police allow me to explain – by ‘stealing’ I don’t mean theft in the traditional sense. What I mean I that I even things up by taking valuable information which is usually available only to the wealthiest… Read More
