How savers are making money as the 0.5% base rate drags on

By Rob Shepherd

With the Bank of England’s base rate gathering cobwebs at 0.5%, millions of savers are now desperate to see how to prevent their savings dwindling further.

“It’s little wonder many people are now looking beyond savings and pensions to the stock market,” says multi-millionaire Vince Stanzione, who built his fortune using a simple online system for following share price activity and investing accordingly. “The so-called security of savings accounts has become meaningless after year upon year of microscopic returns.”

Stanzione, author of the best-selling book The Millionaire Dropout, says that wariness of the stock market is often not so much because of the risk but because of the markets’ alienating jargon and apparent incomprehensibility. But, says Stanzione, these are not real barriers.

“I’m now seeing a lot of investors, many 55+ or retired, who are no longer intimidated by the markets’ smoke and mirrors.”

This may be down to Stanzione’s own approach to trading, as he reveals the system that amassed his personal fortune, insisting it is so straightforward, anyone can do it.

Having tested it across an extraordinary range of market conditions over 15 years, Stanzione has turned his system into a personal training package called ‘Making Money From Financial Spread Trading’. Its workbook, two DVDs and members-only website (plus support) cover both spread trading and conventional share dealing and, crucial in volatile times, show how money can be made from shares going down, and even sideways, as well as up.

“And if that language sounds a bit alien, the package will explain,” says Stanzione. “I’ve eliminated the jargon and demystified everything. I take students step by step, with a dummy account to practice on. You start by studying, then you try a few small trades and work up from there at your own speed.

“Typically, students spend around 30 minutes a day and can do it from anywhere, including tablets and smart phones.”

Of course, there are no guarantees of a return but learning from an expert greatly improves the odds, with the added attraction that profits are tax-free. Would-be traders can start with as little as £1000.

Can you really make money from a falling stockmarket?

Most investors are familiar with buying a stock, an Exchange Traded Fund or Mutual fund and profiting from it going up but very few investors know how to profit from a falling market.

It’s all very well buying and holding in a bull market where prices steadily go up but for the last decade that has not been the case. Many professional traders and Hedge funds have been profiting from falling markets for many years but the good news is that you too can do the same and it is not as difficult or risky as some may think.
Millionaire Trader Vince Stanzione has these tips

1. You can buy an inverse Exchange Traded Fund (ETF). An Inverse ETF is a product which is designed to track a market,currency or commodity but in reverse. So for example say the Dow Jones Industrial Average drops 3% in a day than Dow Jones Inverse ETF (DOG) would up around the same amount.

2. You can buy put traded options. Most would never think of going without auto, home or travel insurance yet most do not think about insuring a stock portfolio. A put option can be used to protect a portfolio for a down move as well as used to profit. The good news about a put option is that whilst profits are unlimited your risk is strictly limited to the premium — price paid.

3. You can short sell a company via an online broker
Most brokers will allow you to Sell to open, so let’s say you think Bank of America shares will fall you can sell 1000 shares at the current price let’s say $10.00 — you are now short 1000 shares.
A few weeks later Bank Of America shares do fall so you now Buy to Close 1000 shares at $9, the profit would be the difference between selling at the higher price and buying at the lower one. So your profits are $1 X 1000 so that’s $1000 less any commissions

Of course this short video just gives an overview and idea if what is possible are there are other ways to profit and protect your portfolio. Those in the UK can use spread betting firms such as IG Index, City Index , Capital spreads and Cantor Index to make down bets. Also CFDs Contracts for diffrence can be used.

Financial Spread Betting on US shares

Whilst most reading this will be familiar with Financial Spread Betting or Financial Spread Trading on UK shares and indices such as the FTSE100 or the FTSE250 many smaller clients are still reluctant to look at the US market which is a real shame as the opportunities in  the US are massive and you can as easily trade Google and you can Vodafone.

I often hear UK based traders say they don’t know much about the US market, I then remind them that Apple, McDonalds, Starbucks, IBM, Facebook, Google, Proctor & Gamble, Philip Morris to name a few are all US listed stocks.

Many in the UK or Europe are put off by the fact that US shares trade in US Dollars so you also have a FX risk however all major financial bookmakers allow to bet in £,Euros or US$, so whist say IBM are traded in US$ you can bet £1 a point.

The US market makes up around 33% of the world markets so you can certainly not ignore it. The internet gives you access to great data and research and in fact there is more data available on US stocks than US ones.

The time zone can also be friendly for those in the UK and Europe with the US markets closing at 9pm UK time this can be ideal for those that wish to trade in the evening.
