Trading For A Living

Successfully trading for a living is like riding a bike; it looks easy but can be very difficult the first few times you try. Perseverance is key. The idea is to invest in stocks or other assets (e.g. currencies or commodities), wait for their value to increase and then sell to make a profit. Of course, there are financial risks involved. Despite this, trading is becoming an ever-popular means to pursue a living. Every day people are realising they can trade financial markets like banks and professional investors. Trading for a living is no longer impaired by dealing costs; with the use of the Internet, trading has become far more accessible prompting more private investors to start trading for a living. There is still significant risk involved, particularly when the product is leveraged. Our research and Trading Opportunities will help you make informed decisions and help you find the right approach to trading.

If you’re planning on trading for a living, preparation is key. As with any new venture, planning is critical, and risks should be considered and mitigated with a disciplined trading strategy. If you’re trading for a living this is critical, as many bad ventures could have been avoided with correct planning. Furthermore, it is up to you (the trader) to be self-disciplined; determination and persistency counts. When trading for a living on the financial markets, comprehension of your trading efforts and results ultimately lead to future success; assess, survive, adapt. Every failure should be seen as a stepping stone on your way to success.

Some of the benefits of trading for a living are as follows; firstly, financial markets are brilliant tools for achieving independence; determination and perseverance can allow for anyone to succeed in trading for a living. Nobody can dictate what you can and can’t do; you have freedom, effectively you are your own boss and can decide what risks to take. You can trade from any location, on almost any financial market for as little or as much as you want; the choice is unlimited as there are no restrictions. Trading for a living is time dependent and opportunity is diverse – the relation between is not always obvious, careful speculation is required. Trading is an ongoing pursuit, the more you learn through researching or observing the more fluent you become with the mechanisms that drive success. Ultimately success is possible and limited only by your decisions and how effective they are. However, trading does involve risk to capital, so you should ensure you understand fully the risks you’re taking.

Electronic trading has radically diminished the need for middlemen. Historically, trading on the financial markets used human traders/participants as the driving force for most trading processes. This means that individual traders who are trading for a living can reap more of the rewards for their trades than before – many will argue that there has never been a better time to begin trading for a living with Accendo Markets. We hope this guide will give you insight into the opportunities and options available to you before trading for a living.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.

Being new to direct trading I needed help and was given all the time and advice that I needed to feel fully able to make decisions on what I wanted to invest in. I asked for and got exactly the type of info I required provided by Tom Cook, who I would recommend to anyone looking for help.
