‘What should or could you do with your money?’ is the question that has resulted in the form of some of the world´s biggest markets for lifetimes and more. Currently there are a large number of ways you could put your money to use to make a return, for example:

  • Gain Interest from a Bank
  • Lend it to Someone with Interest
  • Buy a House
  • Buy Fixed Assets (an antique car, a valuable diamond ring)
  • Buy Shares
  • Exchange Currencies
  • Trade Options
  • Trade Futures
  • Trade Commodities
  • Invest in Alternative Instruments (i.e. Trusts, Bonds)
  • Build a Business
  • Buy an Existing Business

And the list goes on…

Whether you are full-time employee, part-time or self-employed or looking to ‘Be Your Own Boss’, share trading can and in some select cases has been the basis for vast amounts of return. Take Microsoft, for example. Had you invested in Bill Gates’ well known creation at its Initial Public Offering (IPO) back in 1986 and simply held that investment, your return would have been somewhere in the neighbourhood of 35,000% by spring of 2004. In other words, over an 18-year period, a £10,000 investment would have turned itself into a cool £3.5 million! With returns like this, it’s no wonder that investors continue to hunt for “the next Microsoft”.

The bad news is this website will not tell you about the next Microsoft or Google, it won’t give you a magic, 100% guaranteed, fool proof trading strategy that will turn you into the next Warren Buffet. Sadly there are more losers than winners in this game and the risk involved has seen many a wealthy man ruined. But maybe you want more than the 5% your bank are offering in interest return. Maybe you have the capacity to put in long hours of research, analytical thinking and the ability to resist your emotions to turn yourself into a seasoned share trader. Well this site will give you some background and ideas about how you may proceed.

This website was created as a result of years of personal stock trading and strategy development from my own personal experience. What I have learned has mostly come from taking time to read how the markets work, what is important in a company’s profile and spending countless hours reading the financial news, trawling the websites dedicated to company news, etc. Well the site was born out a need to do something else, a personal project you might say. I continue to be a full time market trader and as such I trust that some of what I say will make sense and stand the test of time.

The site is a brief collection of ideas that I found important and useful when I first started out as a share trader. The articles associated are items that have come up which might be useful for many people but not necessarily based on the overall method I have presented here. The site will contain all kinds of things i.e. what is generally important in stock market trading including book reviews, analysis of people who have been successful over the years as investors, comparisons of some brokers and their usefulness plus much more. I have also laid on a beginners guide to the different accounts available for a new trader in order to guide you to the account most suitable for your circumstances and aspirations. Comments will also be available to promote discussion of the topics raised as my opinion is just one of many and I do not presume to think that I am right on everything.

I hope you enjoy and found the information useful. Only few people in my past have given me any kind of guidance or advice on how to be successful at picking stocks. I hope I can add to the dearth of knowledge in this field and promote a sense of ‘in this together’ness’.
