OK, so I have mentioned this stock before but being as it is one of my all-time favourites and given the impressive gains lately it has to be noted.
I have more or less been trading Paddy Power since I started trading. What’s more is this was one of the first proper long term trades that I found myself using the Vince Stanzione course.
As you can see from this chart, you could have entered this when I did back in 2011 and stayed in it [depending on moving averages and stops] there are not many tax free investments that you can find like this. You couldn’t buy better trading results if you subscribed to a service. And there is not a horse racing service on the planet that is anywhere near capable of producing more points profit in this time frame.
I traded out and then moved back in but I also reversed my position. Regardless of that I was following the signals and stayed with the trend.
I first bought paddy power at a fraction over £35 and spread bet it at finspreads. Today it’s trading at £114+ so even trading at a modest £5 a point profit you could be up over £35,000 in four years.
Not too shabby for a £5 bet. And you could have even used 0.50p a point if you wanted to if you had a smaller bank.
Another thing is that you have to remember that if a trade goes against you’d of closed out. So as you can see, the cutting your losses and letting your profits run approach is far from any myth or hype.
Trend trading, simple moving averages, a spread betting account and Vince Stanzione. You could do a lot worse than having that team in your corner.

Halloween has been and gone but it’s been a wicked few weeks of trading and I have had some fantastic trading profits. As a member of Vince’s site it never ceases to amaze me how valuable this man is to me. He called some massive shots that have already shown fantastic profits and it is reassuring after […] More
It’s easy this whole trading thing. If you’ve just started out and anything you buy just keeps going in the right direction… up up and away the prices soar of your stocks. The Ferrari is on order and coming soon. You buy more stock and woosh… up it goes again. Strategy and discipline leaves the […] More
I have just finished reading a fantastic and timeless book. It has been in print for many many years, and I had seen it often, although it never ever really appealed to me for some reason. However, just this Sunday I was in the mood for a good inspirational read so headed over to Amazon. […] More
Well it seems as though our poor summer is actually over. I say that because for me it always feels like that at the beginning of September. The schools and colleges go back, Halloween costumes appear in the shops and as traders we start to think about our seasonality trades. Summer officially ends on the […] More
Well not quite but not far off either. The thing is if you look at this first chart beneath that Vince’s system has given, you can see that a sell signal was confirmed before the current drop in prices. It’s almost spooky how accurate the signal can be. FTSE August 2015 You can see that […] More
Why does Vince Stanzione sell his System? As you know, I have been trading using the Vince Stanzione Course for some years now. Of course not every trade is a winner, but I make some fantastic profits overall. Some of my biggest gains have come from Vince’s recommendations via his private members club and from […] More
OK, with all the doom and gloom in the world at the moment I thought it a nice change to list my favorite funniest money and stock market quotes. “All I ask is the chance to prove that money can’t make me happy.” Spike Milligan. Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s […] More
I really do feel sorry for the Greeks. For a nation with such a staggering history and such proud people, it’s tragic to see them reduced to more or less begging for money from the EU. The country is in bits; but I’m not sure it is going to get any better for them to […] More
To make money from the stock market you need to have a bank to trade with. Ok that’s obvious to all, but how do you make the most of what you earn to initially invest in the markets? Well this little quote should help me highlight the formula. Some of you may have heard it […] More
