  • Trading Profile (OLD)
    We'll be phasing this section out shortly. All members are encouraged to fill out the NEW Trading Info section.
    Trading Style
    More of a day trader these days - hold from 30mins to 2-3 days max, however have an alternative (non-leveraged) investment fund where I buy & hold high yielding stocks on the dips.
    List of Markets Traded
    FTSE and DJI only now, I also like buying cheap out of the money options when I see a big move coming. Maybe oil/gold if there is an obvious opportunity. Stock trading I stick to the FTSE all-share
    What method do you use to Trade?
    Mostly, identify a trend, wait for a pullback and jump on the trend. Also trade off major support/resistance. Sometimes I will hedge out bad trades with an option rather than close if I think my analysis was "too soon" rather than "wrong".

    Trading Biography
    Iíve long since given up trying to predict the market and now let the market tell me which way to trade. I only started making money once I realised I was no good at determining market direction. My entries are purely mechanical, exits are a mixture of mechanical/discretional. I have 2 complimentary trading methods which I run simultaneously. I trade a mixture of futures & options.
