Financial Market Outlook 11.1.2017

financial analystThe FTSE 100, made history yesterday, not only did it close at another  record high at 7275 up 37.7 points  +0.37%,  but it was also the  9th day in a role of closing at a new high. This has never happened before in the history of the FTSE.

The reason behind it is that the British pound has been falling since the BREXIT, as a weaker pound will increase profits of multinational corporations that are listed on the index, when they convert their earnings to pounds.

It is kind of a catch 22 situation, because as the pound goes down the FTSE goes up.  If you are currently investing in the UK stock market, it’s great, but not too good if international business needs to be done. A weaker pound, will give you less for your money in a foreign country.

The Mining, Banking and Health Care Equipment & Services had a good trading day.

Financial Market Outlook 10.1.2017

exam analystThe FTSE closed at a new high yesterday, at 7215 up 5.90, 0.08%.

Morrison Supermarkets was one of the main gainers of the market as the fourth largest supermarket in the UK did better than expected in the Christmas trading. The results indicate that the recent Christmas trading was the best performance in the last seven years. The Share price was up 4.2 %.

However, Tesco, the UK’s number one supermarket has emerged the winner with the fastest growing sales among the sector over the Christmas period. Tesco was up around 5% at the close of yesterday’s trading.

In New York, USA, THE Dow Jones did reach 20,000 – a new high but closed below the figure at the end of yesterday’s trading.

President Elect Donald Trump met with Jack Ma – CEO of Alibaba and promised to bring 1 million jobs to America. I believe trading deals and brining jobs back America as well as creating Jobs will be a strong point for Mr Trump.
Alibaba’s earnings for last quarter are due out on January 24.

Back on President Elect Trump; he has appointed his son in law Jared Kushner as his senior adviser. Mr Kushner played a key role in Mr Trump’s campaign for the election, and is married to Ivanka Trump.

38 STEPS TO BECOMING A TRADER

1. We accumulate information—buying books, going to seminars, attending courses and researching.
2. We begin to trade with our “new” knowledge.
3. We consistently “donate” and then realize that we may need more knowledge or information.
4. We accumulate more information.
5. We switch the currencies or commodities we are currently following.
6. We go back into the market and trade with our “updated” knowledge.
7. We get “beat up” again and begin to lose some of our confidence. Fear starts setting in.
8. We start to listen to “outside news” and to other traders.
9. We go back into the market and continue to “donate.”
10. We switch currencies and commodities again.
11. We search for more information.
12. We go back into the market and start to see a little progress.
13. We get “overconfident,” and the market humbles us.
14. We start to understand that trading successfully is going to take more time and more knowledge than we anticipated. Most people will give up at this point, as they realize work is involved.
15. We get serious and start concentrating on learning a “real” methodology.
16. We trade our methodology with some success but realize that something is missing.
17. We begin to understand the need for having rules to apply our methodology.
18. We take a sabbatical from trading to develop and research our trading rules.
19. We start trading again, this time with rules, and find some success, but overall, we still hesitate when we execute.
20. We add, subtract, and modify rules as we see a need to be more proficient with our rules.
21. We feel we are very close to crossing that threshold of successful trading.
22. We start to take responsibility for our trading results as we understand that our success is in us, not the methodology.
23. We continue to trade and become more proficient with our methodology and our rules.
24. As we trade, we still have a tendency to violate our rules, and our results are still erratic.
25. We know we are close.
26. We go back and research our rules.
27. We build the confidence in our rules and go back into the market and trade.
28. Our trading results are getting better, but we are still hesitating in executing our rules.
29. We now see the importance of following our rules as we see the results of our trades when we don’t follow the rules.
30. We begin to see that our lack of success is within us (a lack of discipline in following the rules because of some kind of fear), and we begin to work on knowing ourselves better.
31. We continue to trade, and the market teaches us more and more about ourselves.
32. We master our methodology and our trading rules.
33. We begin to consistently make money.
34. We get a little overconfident, and the market humbles us.
35. We continue to learn our lessons.
36. We stop thinking and allow our rules to trade for us (trading becomes boring but successful), and our trading account continues to grow as we increase our contract size.
37. We are making more money than we ever dreamed possible.
38. We go on with our lives and accomplish many of the goals we had always dreamed of and in return now we are able to help others.

It’s been quite a while!

Yes. It’s been a while since our last blog.
This always happens at this time of the year.
The new academic year means new syllabuses.
New courses added to the portfolio.
New material to be written.
New trainers to induct.
And so we have had our hands completely full.
Pressure is beginning to ease so you can expect that normal blogging duty will resume soon.

New things to look out for…

CeMAP 2012/13 Academic year material now completed. So for those looking to do CeMAP distance learning can rest assured we will only be sending them current material.

DipFA Coursework and FactFind Training has been going very well. We’ve been closely monitoring the success rates of our students and can only recollect a few that have not passed! We have our new tutor , Paul, to thank for that! He really cares about the students and provides them with a lot of aftercare support. The rave reviews he has been getting are extremely well deserved.

Stocks, Shares and Investments courses and our Day Trading Forex programme has been running smoothly under the management of Umar. He has brought a very practical slant to the courses and his post course mentoring is just first class. It’s no wonder people are queueing up to join his classes.

We’ve also been working hard on a Business Analysis course which is scheduled to kick off October 28th. For this we have recruited the services of a very senior Business Analyst at Amazon. We get so many Software Testing Analysts looking for a career progression route…and for most – this is it!

Our Software Testing Essentials course has had some new additions to it. We’ve added an extra day on to the course thereby incorporating Test automation into the programme.

We now have beginners to advanced WordPress courses ranging from the basics (using WordPress.com) to intermediate and advanced levels using wordpress.org and all the benefits of flexibility to looking at how to build your own themes and understanding the php code that allows you to customise your wordpress site even more.

We are also trialling the ACA qualification for those looking to gain Adobe accreditation in either Photoshop or Dreamweaver.
A goal for the Adobe Certified Associate certification is to address the real world, entry-level skill expectations for web communication, rich media communication, and visual communication.

This certification is a credential that validates entry-level skills needed to plan, design, build, and maintain effective communications by using different forms of digital media.

The qualification is open to anyone who takes our Adobe Photoshop Next Step Course and Adobe Dreamweaver Next Step course.

So as you can see there’s lot’s to look forward to at Futuretrend this academic year.
