  • If there ever was a time for capital protection, this is it!
  • As it stands, we are at the tail end of an eight-year bull market and, by most estimates, markets in the developed world are massively overpriced versus historical levels.

  • MAY DAY MAY DAY - Tories loose majority and tech stocks stumble - Three to buy with updates
  • Global Markets are busy digesting the UK election results, which indicated the Tories have lost their small majority. The UK now sits with a Hung Parliament, which will see the UK enter the Brexit negotiations set to start next week on the back foot.

  • I have a confession
  • Early in the week, I was waiting for a trade to line up. For the entire day, nothing lined up. There was a moment where I felt trigger happy. I just wanted to take a trade for the sake of taking a trade. I didn't have a plan for the trade, I just had this urge. You can say I felt a gambling mentality moment. But because I've been in the market long enough to know better, I saved myself f... ››› more

  • If you don't follow this rule, prepare to blow 65.13% of your trading portfolio
  • “Timon why don't you be a man and risk 10% per trade?” “I'm not going to get rich with risking 2% of my portfolio per trade, I'm sticking to 10%”. I constantly get these snarky emails trying to convince me to change the way I trade. I don't care about how amazing your trading strategy is. There are two things I'm going to say. Firstly, Don't worry about what I'm doing, ... ››› more

  • You won't believe this BS I've just read on Twitter
  • I need to catch my breath. I'm so amazed at the stupidity I've just read on Twitter. A new Forex trader bought the Great British pound to the US dollar. And he sent a tweet saying this. “I just bought the Pound against the dollar and I'm hoping that the Pound goes up now.” Next, I read a reply from some other trader. RT: “Don't worry, just think positive thoughts and you'll mak... ››› more

  • What nonsense! Why you don't need 10,000 hours to become a successful Forex trader
  • Dear Trading Tips reader, I am sure you have heard someone say that you need 10,000 hours of trading experience to master the art. This is certainly the case for many career options such as becoming a professional golfer, rugby player or even a movie star. But I really don't believe that this is the case for Forex trading.
