most likely another con. every 3 or 4 years a naive reporter is duped into giving air time to a con artist who on the back of this monster publicity of fake then becomes a mentor to 000s of wannabies charging them 5 grand a month each.

though only a few months ago the Daily Mail did the same for Gurvin Singh

Guest For a young guy

My radar goes of just reading that article.

These young guys are usually just the front man for one or more backers who stump up for the hire of the car and private jet for an hour for the photo shoot. With that kind of publicity reach he will currently be receiving thousands of requests for a subscriptions service and mentorships.

As soon as I saw this.... i don't believe it.

"That's the day I first found out that I could make money without any GCSEs or qualifications,"

I am sure there are millions of people who do make money without qualifications. But £200k a year? REALLY! Statements like this, just encourage people to do reckless things.

    • https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/when-performance-matters%3A-nasdaq-100-vs.-sp-500-second-quarter-20-2020-07-13 should look similar with GICS - i.e. NDX underweight (vs SPX)to Financials (incl. RE), Energy, Materials and Utilities together roughly 25%... and those went kinda nowhere over the more or less recent past...:     ...of course this is rather superficial, but (together with comparisons posted earlier) suggests really exactly two - closely linked - segments in global asset markets have been trending (up) recent years:  US large cap tech and consumer (incl. Healthcare) stocks.   ...apparently a significant share of all the money printed globally this period  seems to eventually somehow have found its way into these highly concentrated segments...
    • I know relative to some brokers (who are taking the absolute $%&*) IG fx conversion fee of 0.5% is okay, however its still an absolute joke that they and the industry can get away with this flagrant ripping off of customers. I would like to know if IG have any plans to reduce their conversion fee ( trading US stocks in an ISA) to compete with others such as Trading212 who don't charge fx fees at all.... I have a moderate account with substantial turnover, like others I know, I'm now considering transferring my account to 212 as I cant see any justification for such high fx conversion fees now its been shown thats its possible to remove them al together... Perhaps 0.1% to cover costs would be understandable, but 0.5% so 1% round trip on trading any size is ridiculous. I easily give IG thousands, if not tens of thousands a yr in fx fees...
    • Hey,  Unfortunately in Singapore we don't offer a non-leveraged account. We offer these types of accounts to other clients in other countries but not for Singapore.   Apologies for the inconvenience.
