"Trading, Investing and Spread Betting 101" presented by Malcolm Pryor

Join well known author and trader Malcolm Pryor MTSA for his full day ""Trading, Investing and Spread Betting 101"" seminar. This is a complete guide to starting out and/or building your skills as a trader or investor. It is of equal value to the part time trader who just wants to find a simple passive system to manage their own investments as to those who want to learn to trade full time.

  • “If you are serious about becoming a long lasting, consistently profitable trader/investor I highly recommend you make the investment of attend this seminar.”

  • Alastair Morrison - Serial Entrepreneur, Coach and Graduate of the Van Tharp Super Trader Program

It is generally accepted that about 90% of those who first enter the markets or open a spread betting account bet lose money. The aim of this course is to start you out on a road to becoming one of the 10% who survive and prosper.

  • “Thanks once again for an excellent day. Great success all round and I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar.”

  • Pete Hiam - Ex Deutsche Bank and now full time FX and Multi-Asset Trader and Value Investor

The knowledge presented during this day has been developed by Malcolm over a life time of reading and research into the theory and practice of trading and markets as well as his own actual trading, Malcolm has made a full time living as a trader since 2002. What he presents is a practical guide to ALL the components that go into building a trading plan that will actually work for you. After the seminar participants will be able to start working straight away on a trading plan that suits both their financial objectives and their personality. During the seminar he will also present some actual trading strategies that are showing positive returns in current markets.

  • Malcolm has an incredible knowledge about the financial markets and trading and teaches this in a very easy to understand way. The print out of the slides is a big help as we went through the course and a valuable reference document after the event has finished.
