Are you Looking for the Holy Grail of Trading?

What if I was to offer you, for a very low fee, a trading system with a guaranteed 90% win rate using Binary Options? Would you be interested? Should you be interested?

The 9 Stages of Trading

Have a look at the online platform offered by any binary Options broker. What feature do they emphasise most? It’s probably that you can make good profits quickly.

Can You Learn to Love Your Losses?

Stanley Kubrick’s movie comedy Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb was released in 1964 at a time when nuclear war was a real possibility and reason for worry. In the movie a nuclear war ultimately could not be avoided.  Fortunately, in reality, such a catastrophe has been avoided.

It’s so easy to trade that it can appear as though the main … Continue reading
