Dear All (hello)

Just joined the forum as a newbie and have read bought some books that have been highly recommended from this site. In amongst all the very helpful info (trader dante, timsk, black swan trader333 to name a phew) I started searching for a plan I could start trading with one that would enable me to formalise my own 'trading edge' going forward.

In the process of doing this I came across a book by a regular contributor (a couple of years ago that is ) David Robertson and his book "Mr Spread Betting: Maximum Profit, Low Risk Trading". A couple of years ago this was like a hot potato with a lot of people giving it positive feedback and the author allowing some of the reputable forum users from T2W to test it. I've just done a search for the book on Amazon and it says " Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock. " In addition there doesn't seem to be anything more said about this period either here or on the web ?!?!? So whats happened to the author - does anyone know? also Is the book still around ? and if it is, is it worth buying ?????

Thanks for your help in advance
Herman :)

Hi Herman
I don't knowif it is your author but somebody e-mailed me
very useful information about using stop orders and limit orders
to reduce risk Spread betting is high risk some traders don't
figure that stop and limit orders are a big deal. What is your
opinion?

LOL ! Yes even you Black Swan - just found some of what you had to say interesting.

Lili2 - well from what i've been reading so far (and implementing with 10p bets) I would only feel comfortable (so far) in placing OCO (one cancels other) type orders. Meaning having a SL and limit order makes sure I control the bet so if it goes against me I control my losses but if it goes as i expect it to then it will hopefully hit my limit and i make a profit. Argument here might be to 'run your winnings' but I cannot be at the screen all day hence I'm automating the limit so I get something as opposed to nothing. I am looking into trailing stop losses at present to alleviate this situation but as a newbie this is part of my strategy so far. Hope it helped with your question.

Avoid like the plague, unless you enjoy wasting your money. Take my advice on board before the spineless weasels that run this forum delete this thread.

OK thanks for that William - did you purchase and it didn't go as expected ??
There have been numerous threads relating to that book and the person behind it. I am going to attempt to phrase the next part carefully, to give no excuse for deleting this thread like all the others.

There have been allegations (to whose truth I cannot attest) that the vendor copied and stole systems (for example from Phil Newton, a regular poster on this site), reneged on promises (all forums relating to his many systems that offered lifetime support have vanished), was banned from this site and reappeared many times under various impressively witty monikers (such as T2Wsucks and PhilNewtonSucks), banned members of his trading forum for questioning him, threatened members of his forums and purchasers of his many systems with both legal action and physical violence, actually claimed to have assualted one former member called Jopester, conducted live webinars when drunk, and lied about trading results.

Whether these allegations have any truth in them I do not know, but they have all been made by members of this site. All threads relating to this person have been removed by the admin of this forum with no reasons given. Possibly there are legitimate reasons for their removal, possibly there are not. In which latter case you might think carefully before accepting any advice from anyone connected with this site.

In all of the many threads relating to the vendor and his many, many, many, many systems there have been few voices in support of him and many against. This does not of course mean that his many, many, many, many systems are not excellent and indeed wholly original. Doubtless they are both of these things and you would be well served by purchasing an indicator-based "system" such as the one you are asking about.

I cannot say but I would again urge you to take what you need from any replies you receive as this thread will shortly disappear.

If you should, on reflection, feel that you might be better served by a different approach, begin with the James16 thread on Forex Factory.

Wow - thanks for the response William (was wondering why Amazon had 'pulled' the book). Back to the legitimate 'drawing' board it is for me then.

PS - I'll checkout the 'James16' thread you mentioned - Thanks again

Hello frm lilli2

Is there such a thing as low risk spread betting?
Most indexes are very volatile. My Mum made a regular income
by phoning the Sun Newspaper they have a shares page and
telephone broker she would enquire how the ftse 100 was
doing Place a trade listen to the radio just as her trade was going
UP she'd wait when it started to go down she'd sell.:cool:
KEEP IT SIMPLE.
WARM REGARDS lilli2
