UK Penny Socks

I'm fairly new to trading (<1Y experience). I began with losing a very large sum of money in CFD. BIG lesson learnt. I'm quite happy with the amount I lost because it's given me a better 'value' of money and I've learnt to make wiser decisions.
Anyway.. I'm from the UK and have a pretty good (all but small) portfolio of trading penny stocks. I've never really gone negative, mainly down to luck and skimming useful information on stock market discussion boards.
I'm a little stuck however. Where can I find good stock market news, tips and general headers for the AIM market?
There's a number of companies I'm interested in but I honestly have no idea how to get this information. I've researched tonnes but it's like these companies are hidden from Google.
TLDR; Where can I find information relating to UK Penny stocks. What are some good sources?
Plus if anyone has any beginner tips, please HMU.
THANKS IN ADVANCE

Analyzing the YouTube cooking video scene and stars

After watching Folding ideas video on , Cooking on the Internet for fun and profit, I felt inspired to have to discuss what is the current landscape of online cooking shows. This is a sort of exploration of how things are, what it means for restaurants, cooks or even cooking in general and how it will shape the industry in general afterwards. In ways this is sort of a review and comparison of the various YouTube personalities and what does it mean to be a YouTube star. Following the 3 pillars that Folding Ideas had laid out, Personality, Information and Spectacle, I will rating the personalities/channels based on a 6 point allocation system Like a skill pool and application of their points therein, the max could be 6 in one category at the detriment of the other skill sets.
Binging with Babish
Personality: 2
Information: 1
Spectacle: 3
If there was a leader for cooking shows now, it is Babish. His appearance on reddit tapping into the internet nostalgic nerdom has gave him popularity and the ability to bank on it. What I find interesting from the rating is that his spectacle isn’t that he’s is incredibly flamboyant or crazy with what he is doing, it’s just that his non face, one camera and hands only production is his spectacle. That is is his trademark and recognition. Why not the idea of how he recreates pop culture meals and then make a “gourmet” version of it? It would be more recognized but it is shown that with his Basics with Babish spin off series with equal fame means that his spectacle is not limited to only that purpose. As much as I would like to say he is the benchmark of which cooking shows should be judged now, I feel an all around person is actually impossible to become popular because balance does not inspire people, it is the stacking of it one aspect that changes it.
Adam Ragusea
Personality: 2
Information: 2
Spectacle: 2
Adam imho is as equal footing as you can have with as a YouTube star. His own video discussing the aspect YouTube cooking is interesting in the fact that his production is exactly what his most famous video is all about. It’s about stirring the pot and going against tradition in for the sake of doing so. I’ll make it plain, I sort of don’t like him for specific reasons unknown. As as chef I do see the slight arrogance in some of his instruction which is typical of chefs of renown and often celebrated. He has the knowledge and even the connections but I think because due to the allocation of his points evenly, no aspect supports his arrogance which would require a 3 or 4 to make up for those shortcomings. Plainly said, if he is that arrogant, it needs for him to have point allocation into more skill column to justify it. Because it is so even, his jack of all trades make’s him less of an expert and more of a columnist.
But I do respect that. Because in the long run, because of that one video that had netted him the most views, it allows him to basically be free to do anything. From information about sourdough research, to social commentary about media consumption of Mario Batali, to just a regular emphasis on one show, to ingredient/technique analysis, he’s basically someone who is the complete product of cooking shows of the 90’s food show boom. He is what Good eats is but the acts of act 1 Information, Act 2 preparation, and Act 3 execution, focuses on either just 1, 2 or 3 but sometimes never all of them at the same time. Toss in a splash of the analytical mind of Bourdain (courtesy of his Journalism degree) and that is who he is.
Chinese Cooking demystified
Personality: 1
Information: 3
Spectacle: 2
And now we enter one of the niche shows. Catering to a specific cuisine, the information is the spectacle. The interesting thing is when I approached my rating system, I almost considered making it just a personality and information rating with the spectacle being the difference between the two learning towards whichever side. CFD clearly takes on the Babish way of hands only presentation with voiceover. And in comparison with Babish it touches upon an amazing thing, that the production values are the invisible thing that makes the show appealing. Quite often I imagine myself thinking about how these hosts are talking out loud during the film portion and then reframing the same scene in their voice over work, polishing words and ideas. Unlike one shot recording, it’s like a 2nd take on the food and being able to do that shows how much that polish appeals to our sense of media.
What I find super interesting that is CFD clearly has less kitchen equipment that most other shows for good reason. Reflecting the space availability in Asia and just the different equipment and techniques used in Chinese cooking, there is an indirect extra amount of information being conveyed to the viewer. Was it not for the production value, this could have been mistaken to many home cooks channels showing off their techniques with bowls that they have readily at home, non industrial grade kitchen equipment and DIY set ups for shows.
What I admire about this show is that this video on Mapo Tofu sums it’s completely, a deep delve into their mission statement, casting off the adaptations of Chinese dishes and creating authenticity and personality from the information.
Joshua Weismann
Personality: 2
Information: 2
Spectacle: 2
What is interesting is that he is one of the few chefs amongst the pantheon on YouTubers. A lot of the other ones are actually have a career in video production. Looking at his point allocation, you see that I am essentially putting him in the same category as Adam Ragusea, which isn’t a bad thing. In the second similarity comparison why this makes sense is because Joshua has many things in common. The awareness of media consumption of cooking shows (aka business transition video) how he opens his shot and closes it with the cupboard which hearkens to Good Eats, and his often shown B roll. This is a chef fully aware of what makes a good show, hitting all the tropes of it and one that the audience begrudgingly accepts because we know that is what we want.
The recognition that he is a chef helps to credibility especially considering he has a handful of videos reflecting how to cook more efficiently and how to think like a chef and he has created niches within his own channel with Fermentation Fridays, his Making series where he makes an at home version of a fast food item. A similar vein of Babish and Gourmet Makes. Tapping into those niches it makes me wonder what is the fascination with recreating a food item that exists at home where the whole point of consuming the food item is to not have to make it in the first place. Everyone can make chicken sandwiches, everyone can have this product available at a fraction of the time and effort and yet the recreations engages audiences.
It shows that the making series has the highest views of any other type of videos on his channel with often exceeding 1 million views (the Church’s chicken burger being the first pre pandemic topping out at 5.9 million). Which once again goes to Ragusea’s point about what you want to be known for won’t necessarily be what you will be known for. The pandemic certainly helped if only for people to be nostalgic for the items they cannot get to but can be recreated at home for comfort.
But I don’t see Joshua as that. I recognize him first for his sourdough series but also for a mishmash of other things. Like the rating indicates, he’s a jack of all trades in the 3 pillars and the entry point for consuming his videos is vast enough to engage with people with concise videos that balance what the videos are like (notice buzzwords like Easiest, Ultimate, Guides and How Tos), acknowledgement of the media he is presenting these products (cupboard intro, production value and b rolls) and information. Comparing with him and Adam, who would I choose since they are so similar? Joshua of course because his cooking show is probably as closest to the spectrum end of old TV network cooking shows than of the Streaming. But consider this. Like I mentioned before Adam is representative of the culture of cooking audience consumption and the end product of it. Joshua is more the end product of cooking show production and represents what tropes are associated with said genre.
My name is Andong
Personality: 3
Information:2
Spectacle: 1
Weird comparison here with Andong and Joshua. Imagine this. Joshua has his branding as shown to focus on how to cook. It’s technique driven instructive. Andong has a branding that is about the food but his diversity for the food is all across the map. And that is the point. A Russian born filmmaker who studied in China and lives in Berlin, his channel is probably the most representative of the host than any other on this list. His personality is the spectacle and IMHO a lot of that has to do with being a filmmaker, his background but also literally his background. The set he uses is the evolution of what a kitchen set from a TV show looks like. It literally looks like a non-fuctional display of the show and as seen in one of his BTS videos, it is his living room.
So being the first one where it is all personality what do I have to say? Andong is just oozing it. It’s crazy how comforting his personality and enthusiasm is that permeates through all his videos regardless of content. What do I mean by that? Doesn’t Joshua and Adam have that same enthusiasm? They do, but their enthusiasm is from informing the audience of a method that makes sense. The act of informing what makes it’s amazing. His culture series fantastic.
However with Andong his enthusiasm for the food is literally for the food. Not how it’s made, not how but the amazingness that this thing even exists and he wants to share that love for that dish with you. With him I feel there is no effort needed to explain why this is great, it’s just there. It helps when has people over to test the items to eat, but if there was any YouTuber who is shares the joy of say Bourdain enjoying a meal, it would be Andong. The positivity is backed up with the food vernacular of foodies. THe draw is learning about the food he is cooking and not necessarily what the technique is hence heavy on the information culturally that the technique.
Pro Home Cooks
Personality: 1
Information: 3
Spectacle: 2
The low on the personality scale again. I have nothing against Mike Green but like a few on here, the focus is on the food. His sandwich series, goes hand in hand with his sourdough obsession. His focus is on education but in a different way than others. With the courses he offers on the side as well drive to actually make pro cooks at home, he reminds me a lot of Joshua in that but he seems to have a bit of an emphasis on guests to be the expert on whatever subject he was discussing. It is interesting how his channel managed to continue on without his brother probably because of the lack of personality. When you create a brand that isn’t dependent solely on the host(s), it can survive beyond it’s initial concept. But even in the title it offers what it’s intent is, to make you a pro cook at home. Wanting to inspire people beyond just entertaining them goes a long way and it shows in Mike’s “Mistakes” series which shows a side to cooking rarely seen “fixing/prevention” of cooking mishaps.
Alex “French Cooking Guy”
Personality: 3
Information: 3
Spectacle: 0
Ok I know what you are saying. Where the fuck is the spectacle. Well guess what, his personality is the spectacle. The information is part of the personality, which is also spectacle. Alex is the purest example of why I originally humoured a 2 metric system of just personality and information and what the different of emphasis is the spectacle. But the second you enter his video section, especially his most recent ones, it is obsession. His series are not a weekly thing or whatever was edited conveniently. They are back to back to back which emphasizes how he produces. And it works. His croissant series was 11 installments in a row (14 if you count the 3 tempering chocolate series beforehand) and other videos exhibit the same amount of dedication and format.
But this isn’t to say just because he is French that is why his personality is so engaging from a Western audience who is more familiar with English speaking chefs. Andong has a personality that goes beyond just the charm of his accent (in fact it was a conscious choice for him to make it in English to reach more viewers). Alex has more in common with another personality that isn’t even a Chef and that is Adam Savage. His film production skills takes him to a next level away from cooking shows because look at his studio, it literally looks like a garage/lab. With his engineering videos and focusing on one aspect of an item for an entire video where others would just focus on maybe max 2 minutes, the spectacle is almost a pure 6 from personality and information by sheer amount of what he was bombarding you with it. He is the science teacher that makes you excited for a subject through empathy and his sheer enthusiasm.
Bon Appetit
Personality: 3
Information: 0
Spectacle: 3
This artcle explains a lot. Bon Appetit has the benefit of creating crossovers. The MCU/Network television of shows. In a weird way Mike Green of Pro Cooks at Home is similar to Bon Appetit by trying to sell a lifestyle in cooking. The “Perfect series” is much like the Avengers style mash up and their own running series plays on the strength of the people’s personalities. TBH Bon Appetit is one of the last places I’d go for informative instruction, but I would go purely for the entertainment. I’m not saying it’s empty of information, I just feel there are a lot more resources I would scour before defaulting to Bon Appetit. And that is what is awesome about this Channel it actually created a formula for success where a lot has failed even well funded non independent and cook focused driven channels. As emphasized in the article it is because of the strength of their personalities.
Like Babish and Joshua, I feel that Bon Appetit is one of those channels that had a culture existing outside the show through it’s memes. With Claire inspiring the most of them and Brad’s “wodour” they have reach the hall of farmers like “Bam” EVOO and “That’s for another show…” slight effort they have created a meme machine that transcends their informative content and shine in the personality content.
Fine Dining TV and Chef Epic
Personality: 0
Information: 4
Spectacle: 2
Wow. All information no personality. This must be awesome right? Wrong. There is a reason that these two channels has averages of a few thousand views the lack of personality. Remember Pro Cooks at Home? This is the result of having zero personality to tether all the information together. A lot of people just don’t have personalities for the camera and that percentage does translate into the chef population as well. But remember that most of famous YouTube Chefs are filmmakers first. Even Alton Brown was a director for commercials before starting Good Eats.
But isn’t the spectacle just the wealth of information you get in how the dish is created? Well of course...if you are part of that industry. Remember this is just my opinion but as my opinion as a chef, gleaning just a clue to what they used to make the dish allows me to reverse engineer how to make it. That is why I value the information at 4. But the spectacle is fucked. In a lot of these videos, the consideration of how to show the act of plating and cooking is cold and efficient, not the way a show plates for the audience. This is like seeing a magic act in the backroom in the Prestige. You see how the illusion of the food is made, but in doing so some of the magic of this plate appearing on your table is lost. At the end of the day it is just an item to the chef, for service for the business not selling you the culture, lifestyle, the promise of being able to make the food. The story is not there.
Don’t get me wrong I love these two channels. I wish for them to have more views and more engagement. But without a host to fill in the gaps between why I am traveling to this restaurant or learning this technique, we lose our stand in for us in that video. The relationship between chef and audience is lost because we can’t eat it and we don’t have anyone to empathize and live through when it is eaten.
John QuilteFood Busker
Personality: 3
Information: 2
Spectacle: 1
And then you have someone like John Quilter. Ex chef, visiting places that are showing off said techniques and engaging with it through him. The video on the pork chop amazing, showing his engagement with it as well. Like Joshua has many videos on How Tos, Perfects and Tips For, I feel his evolution isn’t maintaining consistency but his evolution in general. From what I gather I see he lives for the work. He just works and the burn out came from it. It’s sad because there is nothing wrong with his content, but this is an example of how high barrier to entry for the online cooking show is. He had been doing this for years, even longer than Babish! But to what end do you keep on doing it to a lack of engagement? This seems to be the exact same effort that caused Folding Ideas to abandon his cooking show attempt, not for a lack of love but from the level of consistency required for the effort.
Food Geek
Personality: 2
Information: 4
Spectacle: 0
On the opposite side of the Chef Epic and Fine Dining TV, we have the Food Geek. Much like any other entry on this list devoid of spectacle, Sune’s spectacle comes from his personality and information. His sole emphasis on the methods for sourdough and his experiments make his contribution vital in a way that makes America’s Test Kitchen and Serious Eats so amazing. The ASMR-like voice is perfect for delivering the reaction and results of the experiment that reassures that he did this so you don’t have to. The information is the story which is so weird because where Chef Epic and Fine Dining TV are trying to show you a story, it’s just too short. It’s a collection of short films about kitchens not a cooking channel. Food Geek accomplishes something I feel is more needed in the cooking show genre as we all grow more in education about cooking.
Urban Butchery Channel
Personality: 1
Information: 3
Spectacle: 2
Butchery is that niche that only a handful of chefs will every touch. Once again the information is part of the spectacle and the knowledge of Franco is amazing. But as you can see the apparent “dryness” of the subject has given it few views. It goes to show that even specialization does not guarantee popularity even if the subject is totally focused on said speciality. Bon Appetit has it’s own butcher series that is equally as dry yet garners more views because of their massive media presence. But like Food Geek, this is exactly the informative channel I wish can inspired people to take the next step in their cooking education and journey. To bridge the gap between source and end product for the consumer.

Conclusion
Ultimately all these stars are contributing to the cooking landscape in some shape or form. These shows are repackaging the basics in how media changes with each decade and generation. Julia's was almost a supplement to her book after the success of her demonstration, Pepin a continuation on PBS, Emeril, Alton, Jamie, Rachel, Nigella the embrace of the Food Network channel, and Babish and Bon Appetit being the YouTube era. All of them were teaching the basics of what we all knew but almost adding ever so slightly upon the next generation entering adulthood or college. The education gets better with each generation but I feel it always has to develop the "personality" of the person through all the basics and before introducing something different such as curry, pad thai, and like Andong more euro centric dishes. Ultimately these chefs and content creators are challenging how we view cooking, how we should approach it and most importantly educating us.
I hope in this post pandemic world, that these channels and as a whole can lead people seeing their relationship with food in a different way. To what is possible, what is considered delicious and ultimately what can bring us together as a community as food always has.

If you have any other channel that is worth mention do discuss it of course. Always out there looking for more channels. I do have other channels to suggest but their impact sort of fits so closely to other entries on this list that it didn't seem worth mentioning.

Broker suggestion for noob

Hello guys, pls don't bash on me for being a noob, i know i don't know much that's why i'm only going to invest some disposable money and trade on paper otherwise. So, i'm from Romania (eastern europe) and i'm trying to find an Eu broker. After some reading on here, other websites and brokerchooser, i'm still uncertain. I want to buy one ETF such as VUSA or Ishares Core (i'll be careful not to buy CFDs) and keep it for a month, see how the market goes and basically add or substract money once a month untill the soon to be market crash that i'm forseeing (i know this is detabatable of course). So i think i got the basics of all the fees but i am confused with the currency conversion. From what i understand i should put in the brokerage the currency that my bank account uses (ron) and since VUSA is based on US shares i will have to convert it there in usd. Is this correct? 1. ETORO - it looks like they have high fees for currency exchange. 2. DEGIRO - doesn't work in my country sadly 3. SAXO - requires 10k to make an account in Romania. I get that it's not much for trading but atm i just want to try it out possibly/probably loosing the money. 4. IB - should ingo with this? Fees seem small. About conversion fees i still don't fully understand how bad/good it is. Innactivity fee of 10$ per month over 2k sounds good enough. 5. Tradestation and tastyworks - big withdrawl fees 6. Swissquote - big fee for US stocks SO is IB the best choice in the end? Is there smth i'm missing? 1$ trade fee for US stocks (this means 1$ for an entire trade no matter how many VUSA etfs i buy right?) 10$ inactivity fee, 1 free withdrawl per month. Other suggestions/tips on brokers and conversion fees? Besides me being stupid for inversting 2k in smth i don't fully understand.

Some questions for a new joiner

I'm currently using etoro but looking to switch broker because they recent reduced their leveraging on most stocks to just 2x because of the current volatility. Also I've had some other issues in my time with them.
I like the trading 212 UI and also like how you can split your investments from speculation. I have a few questions, and sorry if these are answered somewhere already!
  1. Can you change the leverage on the CFD account, or are these set in a stone and then I should just adjust the amount I place on the order?
  2. From what I can see online there doesn't seem to be any fees. Am I missing something? Etoro would take a small cut of any overnight leveraged plays, deposit fees and a big chunk of dividend payouts so not having those would be great.
  3. Can you set a standard preference for charts? On etoro anything I set up on one chart would stay for any other stock I clicked into for example, I like to look at 5 minute candle sticks with the moving average line and RSI indicator. When I set this on a chart, it seems to revert back to just a line graph after I'm done
I've currently only been looking at the Android app, not sure how it looks on web version but I would be using both daily.
Any other tips while using the platform are appreciated!

ETORO - it looks like they have high fees for currency exchange. 2. DEGIRO - doesn't work in my country sadly 3. SAXO - requires 10k to make an account in Romania. I get that it's not much for trading but atm i just want to try it out possibly/probably loosing the money. 4. IB - should ingo with this? Fees seem small. About conversion fees i still don't fully understand how bad/good it is. Innactivity fee of 10$ per month over 2k sounds good enough. 5. Tradestation and tastyworks - big withdrawl fees 6. Swissquote - big fee for US stocks SO is IB the best choice in the end? Is there smth i'm missing? 1$ trade fee for US stocks (this means 1$ for an entire trade no matter how many VUSA etfs i buy right?) 10$ inactivity fee, 1 free withdrawl per month. Other suggestions/tips on brokers and conversion fees? Besides me being stupid for inversting 2k in smth i don't fully understand.

Advice on Strategy - Interview Task

Hi All,
I have reached a final stage interview for a role which I really want however the task they have given me has left me a bit aloof.
I was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers or tips (I have a framework for the answers but just want others opinions) on the task at hand?
The task is:
How would you approach each scenario from a purely paid traffic perspective. Bear in mind: - Business model is dependent on traders placing orders (traded accounts), before which they would have opened a demo account, then a live account which they would have then funded - You have no budget constrains - All relevant paid traffic channels are available for you - You have unlimited access to Copyright, CRO, design and pixel implementation resources if needed - You’ll need to define how to measure success - The scenarios are purposely vague, to provide as much freedom as possible to come up with an approach
Scenario 1
We get significant levels of Crypto related traffic. However, the conversion from click to demo account is low
Scenario 2
Shares related traffic generates drives good volume of clicks and demo accounts, but conversion from demo accounts to traded accounts is insufficient
Scenario 3
CFD and Spread Betting traffic has far greater value than any other product, and it converts well throughout the funnel. However, volumes are low
My approach is to firstly have a consistent measurement framework for all three by placing a pixel measuring activity on the demo accounts to allow audience creation by engagement levels.
For crypto targeting top level generics on search, FB and display via interests/affinity to accumulate traffic and direct to informational pages, collate audience and re-target aggressively with creative calling out benefits of the platform and the positive aspects of volatility of crypto.
Shares - Test various CRO tactics with landing page tests, check drop offs on site, possible re-engagement with promotional messaging depending on how far down the funnel the user is
CFD - Lots of upper funnel activity across all channels, promote the app via Google Ads app campaigns, FB app install campaigns and apple search ads.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Jack Of All Trades & High Level Thinker Engineer Trying to Advance Career. I Feel Stuck, Got Any Advice?

Hello everyone! I am a very well rounded mechanical engineer with a PE license who has experience with product development, mechanical design, controls/automation, data analysis, systems modeling, fabrication, etc. For the past 3 years I have been working on startups as the sole engineer and I am looking at entering job market and most jobs for people in my position (8-10 years experience) require really really specific expertise and experience. For example, a job may ask for 7 years of experience with sheet metal manufacturing, or CFD analysis, etc, and I have 1-4 years of experience in a lot of different things.
I know I really enjoy managing people, projects, and products. I really excel when thinking big picture and having the opportunity to drive business direction with my creative thinking. I'm also a total makehacker, but I find that the only use for that seems to be tiny startups.
I would like to work as a manager, managing either a group of engineers or pushing a project/product forward, umbut I don't have any direct experience doing that or certifications.
I would possibly be willing to go back to school for a short while, get some certifications, or possibly even go to a coding boot camp to get my feet into the software management world?
Anyone have any tips for a jack of all trades engineer looking to advance his career?
Much appreciated!

Key Bitcoin Trading Tips

Bitcoin Trading Tip #1: Become Fluent in Technical Analysis

The nature of Bitcoin makes it an outlier in comparison to other asset classes or currencies. There is no central bank or governing body to influence its valuation. News events can have unpredictable impacts, and other financial instruments exhibit sporadic correlations. In fact, Bitcoin pricing models are largely speculative, ignoring a great deal of traditional financial theory.
Understanding the basics of technical analysis is an absolute must before entering the Bitcoin markets. In many ways, price itself provides the only dependable clues pertaining to Bitcoin’s future value. The lack of relevant market fundamentals places an impetus upon analyzing pricing charts, applying indicators, and reading price action.

Bitcoin Trading Tip #2: Adopt a Sustainable Pace

Trading is a marathon, not a sprint. One of the most important tasks facing Bitcoin market participants is establishing a schedule that is sustainable over the long haul. Putting in extraordinarily long hours on a daily basis leads to burnout and subpar performance.

Bitcoin Trading Tip #3: Stay Aware of News Items

Bitcoin is unique in that typical news items do not have a predictable impact upon the markets. There are no scheduled GDP releases, WASDE or EIA inventory reports to boost participation and skew pricing.

Bitcoin Trading Tip #4: Implement Stop Losses

Consistent volatility is an attribute of Bitcoin markets that is particularly attractive to active traders and investors. Valuations regularly fluctuate between 5 percent and 10 percent daily , creating opportunities for traders with an appetite for risk.
No matter if a trader is engaging the cash, CFD, or Bitcoin futures markets, using stop losses is a must when trading Bitcoin. The wide swings in pricing are certainly ripe for profit, but the potential for catastrophe does exist.
It’s absolutely imperative that you use a stop loss somewhere in the market — the exact placement will vary — to protect any open position.

Bitcoin Trading Tip #5: Use Prudent Leverage

It’s a cliché, but leverage is truly a double-edged sword: It boosts gains but magnifies losses. Too much leverage promotes reckless money management and will lead to blowing out your trading account. Too little can hinder performance because premium trades may not perform up to their capabilities. Ultimately, effectively managing leverage is a balancing act that a Bitcoin trader must conduct.
Bitcoin futures products may help you manage leverage because they place an extra emphasis on proper leveraging. The offerings of the CME Group and Chicago Futures Exchange (CFE) are priced at $25 and $10 per tick, respectively. To say the least, it can be capitally intensive to take multicontract positions.
A simple way to define position sizing is the 3 percent rule. Under its parameters, a maximum of 3 percent of the trading account may be assigned to a single trade. This ensures the proper alignment of risk to reward with respect to position sizing and stop loss location.

Where would you suggest me to buy bitcoin , but not as a CFD ?

The Mystery Millionaire Who Haunted London’s Insider-Trading Trial

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2019-07-03/the-mystery-millionaire-who-haunted-london-s-insider-trading-trial July 2, 2019, 9:01 PM PDT
When Alshair Fiyaz, a wealthy businessman with a shaggy mane of hair, walked into the garden of London’s Four Seasons Hotel on a pleasant June evening five years ago, he had no idea he was being followed. He was there to meet Walid Choucair, a trader wearing a hoodie who collected “Star Wars” memorabilia and expensive guitars. Neither one noticed an officer from the National Crime Agency stick a recording device in the greenery.

The investigator was tracking Fiyaz in connection with an insider-trading probe being conducted by the NCA, the U.K. equivalent of the FBI. Choucair wasn’t a suspect, and the officer didn’t know who he was before planting the bug. But after the meeting, the officer followed Choucair to an apartment near the Royal Albert Hall on the edge of Hyde Park.

That fateful encounter at the Four Seasons, recounted in court, would turn Choucair, whose life was an adrenaline-charged chase for information about big deals, into Europe’s most high-profile insider-trading defendant. And his two trials—the first ended last year in a hung jury, the second with a conviction last week—opened a window on a loose network of traders from London to Dubai as well as a multinational investigation into suspected insider trading.

Fiyaz’s name, and details of the Four Seasons meeting, came up frequently at the trials. Choucair said he often discussed trades with Fiyaz, who was so successful he’d bought an 86-meter yacht and a polo club. The two had partied at Tramp, a London club frequented by rock stars and royals, where they spent thousands of dollars on three-liter bottles of Cristal. Financial institutions alerted U.K. regulators about Fiyaz’s trading 71 times in 2013 and 2014, Choucair’s lawyer told the court, citing information from the regulator. Yet Fiyaz wasn’t in the dock. He’s never been charged with a crime and denies any wrongdoing.

But evidence, testimony and legal filings from Choucair’s trials, as well as interviews with traders, their friends, lawyers and people close to the investigation suggest Fiyaz may have been part of a network that cultivated ties to bankers, shared tips via burner phones to avoid detection, fed information to journalists and often secretly monitored each other’s trades. Using their own money or funds from wealthy associates, they made tens of millions of dollars betting on stocks just before a news splash popped the share price. In 2014, the core group of about a dozen traders made more than $100 million, a figure arrived at by adding up figures in legal filings and conversations with traders.

Regulators in France and the U.K., where abnormal trading occurs ahead of more than one in five takeovers, spotted the uncanny timing of transactions by Fiyaz, Choucair and others. In addition to Choucair and Fabiana Abdel-Malek, a UBS Group AG compliance officer convicted at the same trial of providing him with information from a confidential bank database, seven men, including Geneva-based trader Alexis Kuperfis and former Societe Generale SA banker Stephane Fima, have been charged with insider trading in France. All have contested the charges. Another trader was arrested in Serbia in November on a U.S. warrant that alleged he committed securities fraud and was extradited in May, Serbian court officials confirmed. U.S. prosecutors are working with European counterparts on their own probe, Bloomberg News reported last month.

A spokeswoman for Fiyaz said in an email that he has “never been questioned, charged or convicted of insider trading or financial misconduct of any kind in the U.K. or any jurisdiction.” She said the suspicious activity reports related to only 27 trades and were triggered because financial institutions are required to flag transactions when a trader makes more than 10,000 pounds ($13,000) a day, and that Fiyaz hasn’t been the subject of any adverse regulatory findings. Loic Henriot, a lawyer for Kuperfis, said his client has never been part of a network of traders exchanging information. David-Olivier Kaminski, an attorney for Fima, said his client has nothing to do with the investigations that led to Choucair’s conviction.

Choucair, now 40, testified at his trial about his first conversation with Fiyaz, six years his senior, at a pricey Chinese restaurant in London around 2005. They had seen each other at Tramp, where Choucair, the son of a Lebanese construction executive, was a member. Fiyaz and his brother Javed started showing up that year, according to two people familiar with the club scene. They would arrive in separate Rolls-Royces, descend the stairs, pass the red-neon Let’s Get Tramped sign and set up camp in a corner, surrounded by a clutch of women. Choucair would spend thousands of dollars in that den two or three times a month. Whenever he ordered a $4,000 bottle of Champagne, the staff would play the “Star Wars” theme music and announce “Lebanon is in the house,” according to people who’d been there with him.

Choucair was out with a friend who knew Fiyaz when they spotted each other at the Chinese restaurant. They got to talking. “We spent the whole night having drinks, which I was very good at, and having a conversation, which he was very good at,” Choucair would testify at his trial 14 years later, trying to explain that his stock tips were coming from traders like Fiyaz and Kuperfis and not from his friend at UBS.

Choucair had a privileged upbringing in London. He boarded at Mill Hill, a 212-year-old school set on 150 acres of lush parkland. But it was something more avant-garde that first got his heart racing as a young boy. Watching TV one day, he saw Guns N’ Roses’ wild-haired guitarist Slash tear through a solo and decided he, too, wanted to be a guitar hero. When he was 18, his father died and he inherited a fortune. He spent the next years in a blur of benders, and, in his sober moments, completed a business degree at King’s College London, he said at his trial. He bought an Aston Martin, started collecting guitars and filled his apartment with life-size figures from his other boyhood obsession, “Star Wars.”

Fiyaz was raised with his brother in Belgium, where their father, a Pakistani businessman, had settled. They got started at the family company and made their money from shipping and investments ranging from Nigerian oil blocks to Danish department stores and a chocolatier, according to people who’ve met them and information on their websites. But they also attracted the attention of Belgian police, who suspected them of carrying out a scheme to avoid paying value-added taxes, two people familiar with the matter say. The investigation was closed after Fiyaz and his brother agreed to a settlement including a seven-figure payment, one of the people said. Neither was charged, and there was no admission of wrongdoing. Fiyaz’s spokeswoman said the dispute was over whether sales by his company were exempt.

By the mid-2000s, the brothers had moved to London, where they caused a stir in the Mayfair social scene. Alshair, the younger and more athletic of the two, was permanently dressed to go out. He and Javed faced each other across a pair of imposing desks in an office behind the Dorchester Hotel, where they ran their shipping business. They told people they were looking for fresh investment opportunities.

When Choucair saw Fiyaz’s trading setup, he testified, he was intrigued and wanted in. He said that Fiyaz and Kuperfis, nicknamed the Cowboy because he hit the mark so often, showed him how to competitively trade contracts for difference, or CFDs, derivatives that allow a person to bet on a company’s stock without owning shares. It’s a way of trading on margin. With a relatively small down payment, profits and losses can exceed those when buying shares. Many countries have restricted their sale because retail investors can underestimate the risks and incur outsize losses.

Choucair and his associates were a paradoxical bunch. They relied on each other for tip-offs but were suspicious that others were spying on them. Fiyaz accused his brokers of telling people about his positions in the market, according to four of the traders. Some accused him of scoping out their trading positions. Discretion was paramount, and that included using untraceable communications, Choucair testified. Choucair soon had four handsets with unregistered SIM cards for the traders he was talking to. Fiyaz insisted he keep a line dedicated to him, Choucair said in court. Every few months, the traders replaced their SIM cards, and, often, their devices. Fiyaz’s spokeswoman declined to comment on the specifics of Choucair’s testimony but said the jury that convicted him had found it to be untruthful.

In 2011, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission froze assets belonging to Fiyaz and another trader, saying they were suspected of making millions of dollars with the help of inside information on trades related to Lonza Group AG’s $1.2 billion acquisition of Arch Chemicals Inc., which Fiyaz benefited from. Authorities dropped the case the next year because of a lack of evidence, and Fiyaz wasn’t accused of insider trading. Investigators lamented that the other trader had harmed the probe by discarding a BlackBerry that SEC lawyers believed contained text messages about his activity, according to U.S. court filings.

In Choucair’s case, the Financial Conduct Authority, which led the probe, was convinced it had found his insider. Choucair met Abdel-Malek through their mothers. Choucair’s had asked Abdel-Malek’s to make curtains for the tall windows in her son's apartment. They hit it off and introduced the two children to each other. Abdel-Malek, the oldest of three daughters of religious Coptic Christians from Egypt, was kept on a tight leash, even when she got a position at UBS in London in 2007. By early 2013, Abdel-Malek was a relatively experienced compliance officer at a newly restructured division of the bank. She could look at any deal in which UBS was involved.

She had little contact with Choucair for years. But that spring they reconnected, and he invited her and a friend to Tramp to celebrate his birthday, she testified in court. He spent 10,000 pounds that night on Champagne, vodka and club sandwiches, it came out in court, and the party lasted until 3 a.m. Their friendship developed, though both said the relationship wasn’t romantic. Later that spring, he bought her a BlackBerry identical to her work model with a disposable SIM card.

Prosecutors had company database records showing Abdel-Malek was trawling for deals. She testified that she did this to improve her deals literacy, something her managers had asked her to do. Over the next year, prosecutors said, there were about 30 transactions she kept coming back to, telling Choucair when something was imminent, though the pair were only charged in connection with five of them. When prosecutors presented a motive to the jury, they said the glamour of going to Tramp was enough.

Meanwhile, the wider group of traders kept nailing stock picks before news of pending mergers broke. Fiyaz and Kuperfis made about 55 million euros ($62 million) combined trading ahead of the announcement of General Electric Co.’s 2014 deal to acquire most of Alstom SA, court records and people familiar with the matter said. Fiyaz’s spokeswoman said she was unwilling to comment on his trading earnings but denied any impropriety.

Over time, Fiyaz acquired a mansion on the outskirts of Paris, the Polo Club of St. Tropez and a yacht named Ecstasea with two helicopter landing pads that once belonged to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. While it’s unknown how much Fiyaz paid for the yacht, the previous owner bought it for 100 million euros in 2009, according to a U.K. court document. In 2016, Fiyaz hosted a party aboard Ecstasea for the benefit of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, his spokeswoman said. She declined on privacy grounds to say how much he paid for the yacht.

But the suspected trading network was heading for trouble. Even before the GE-Alstom deal, a friend of another member of the group, a deals lawyer, was getting divorced. It got nasty, and the lawyer’s former brother-in-law wrote a letter to French investigators saying he’d overheard him exchanging tips with a trader, according to people familiar with the information.

Investigators had already dedicated resources to cracking down on insider trading, spurred in part by the French government’s anger that information about the GE-Alstom deal was leaked to the press. The regulators built up phone records connecting the group, the people familiar with the matter said. They secured wiretaps, including for the burner phone of a hair salon owner at one of Paris’s most exclusive hotels, whom they suspected of being a go-between, according to French investigative documents. The trail led to French ski resorts, the Cayman Islands, Geneva and eventually to the garden of London’s Four Seasons Hotel.

A transcript of the recording made at the Four Seasons and shown to the jury at Choucair’s trial revealed he was talking to someone on the phone about a deal for a U.S. energy company. Choucair testified that the person was Jeffrey McCracken, at the time head of deals coverage at Bloomberg News.

Choucair said he often spoke to reporters, sometimes at the behest of other traders, in the hope they would confirm his tips and publish an article that would cause the share price to spike. That day, Choucair testified in the second trial, Fiyaz had come to London to discuss the energy deal. McCracken, who left Bloomberg in 2017 to join CNBC and hasn’t been accused of any wrongdoing, declined to comment.

Bloomberg reporters regularly receive tips from people active in the market and were first to report on several deals mentioned in this article. The news organization’s policy is not to publish any information without confirming with people who have direct knowledge of the matter. The policy also prohibits telling sources when a story will be published.

Choucair seemed to know about the investigation before his arrest. In November 2014, he called Kuperfis to warn him. There’s a “big f--king investigation,” he blurted out in a conversation recorded by French investigators and played at Choucair’s trial. Within weeks, Kuperfis and two others were raided in France and Geneva. Kuperfis has been charged with insider trading in France in connection with his trading ahead of chemical producer Air Liquide SA’s $10 billion takeover of Airgas Inc., but he has challenged the legality of the wiretaps, and the case hasn’t come to trial. His lawyer said he couldn’t comment on the case other than to say the charges are unfounded.

Choucair’s lawyers said in court that his client knew about the probe because he was told by Fiyaz, who, the lawyer recounted, had claimed he had gotten the information from a National Crime Agency interpreter, according to the judge's summary of the allegations, which weren’t shared with the jury. Before his arrest, Choucair had written a letter that he hid under a rug in his apartment and that was discovered by investigators, according to the judge’s summary. In it, the summary said, he described what Fiyaz had told him about his NCA sources. The NCA said in December that it’s investigating the matter. Fiyaz’s spokeswoman said he has never had any relationship with investigators at the NCA or other regulatory agencies.

Choucair had his apartment swept for bugs, one person familiar with the matter said, though none were found. He called the FCA, his lawyer said in court. Then, at 6:30 a.m. one morning in September 2015, there was a knock on the door. About a dozen NCA officers had come to arrest him for insider trading. “I knew you were coming,” Choucair said, according to an account his lawyer gave in court.

Across the street, they searched his mother’s house. A few miles away, Abdel-Malek’s sister woke her in her bedroom on the top floor of their family home. Two NCA officers were there to arrest her. They found a printout of price-sensitive information in a Chanel handbag and, according to people with knowledge of the matter, a new 30,000-pound Rolex, worth more than a quarter of her annual salary, along with a receipt. The jury wasn’t told about the watch.

A few months after his release, Choucair was called back to the police station. Two FCA investigators sat opposite him in a small featureless room. They kept asking him about Fiyaz, Kuperfis and others, Choucair’s lawyer said in court. Choucair kept quiet.

During the first trial last fall, Abdel-Malek’s white-haired father sat in the gallery with clenched teeth, clutching a wooden cross and family photographs. Prosecutors couldn’t point to any payments she received, and Choucair was convincing on the witness stand. His lawyer told the jury that Fiyaz and other traders were just as likely a source of information for Choucair as Abdel-Malek. After all, they had bet far more heavily on the very same trades, and Choucair had been in frequent contact with them beforehand.

In December, a few days before the end of the first trial, Choucair returned to Tramp. He was playing guitar with his band White Collar. The room was dark, and Choucair, wearing a hoodie and Converse sneakers, lingered in the background, barely moving to the music. The other four band members, wearing leather, tattoos and eye-liner, filled the tiny stage. Then Choucair stepped forward to sing Bon Jovi’s It’s My Life. By the time the group was on to Guns N’ Roses’ Sweet Child O’ Mine, the electric bass player was pulling his shirt off and climbing onto the drum kit below a chandelier. One band member grabbed the microphone and egged the crowd on. “This might be our last gig,” he said, without explaining that the man who was bankrolling the group might go to jail.

It wasn’t Choucair’s last gig. The jury was unable to come to a verdict. At the second trial this year, Fiyaz involved himself more in the proceedings. At times, he had as many as five lawyers in the courtroom. One was a defense counsel who told the judge that Choucair had falsely accused Fiyaz of wrongdoing. “These are very serious allegations which are made against my client,” the lawyer said. “These are allegations which he denies. He’s never been arrested or charged in relation to any of these matters. The FCA has never cautioned him or even invited him in in relation to any of these matters. He is a man of previous good character.”

Then, just before Choucair was cross-examined, the FCA told the jury it had received information that Fiyaz, via an intermediary, had an insider at Citigroup Inc. The agency said it didn’t have time to investigate if any confidential information had been passed to Fiyaz. Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported additional details about the alleged intermediary. A Citigroup spokeswoman declined to comment. Fiyaz “vehemently denies” that he traded on inside information obtained from Citigroup or any other financial institution, his spokeswoman said.

This time the Fiyaz-was-my-tipster defense didn’t work. Choucair and Abdel-Malek were both convicted on all five counts and sentenced to three years in prison. Both plan to appeal.

Fiyaz wasn’t in court during the eight-week trial, or for the verdict. Traders and lawyers weren’t sure where he was. One said Argentina. Another said he’d been seen at an Alpine ski chalet. In May, Fiyaz’s name appeared on the roster of a polo team contesting the Sun Trophy at his club in France, which once paraded scantily clad models and white Bentleys in front of guests. (Fiyaz’s spokeswoman said he wasn’t involved in the day-to-day operations of the club and doesn’t condone the objectification of women.)

But on an uncharacteristically rainy Sunday, there was no sign of Fiyaz on or off the polo pitch tucked away in a forest about 20 minutes west of St. Tropez by car. In the members’ section, a dozen spectators sitting in wicker armchairs, sheltered by awnings, braved the bad weather to watch Fiyaz’s team take a 5-2 drubbing. When asked after the match why Fiyaz had been replaced by another player, a worker at the club said he had been ordered not to talk. The reason, his spokeswoman said a few weeks later, was that it happened to fall during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan and Fiyaz was fasting.

Guy Gentile || True Facts about Placing a Stop-loss in Online Trading

Guy Gentile || True Facts about Placing a Stop-loss in Online Trading
Guy Gentile one of the best Day Trader and blogging expert from Puerto Rico. Here in this blog he provide some important facts about placing a stop-loss in online trading.

Guy Gentile
Traders will do a lot of things to avoid losing trade. One of those and an essential step in every online trade is placing a stop-loss. Online trading is as risky as it is lucrative. Some trades will cause you to incur losses, even when you executed them perfectly! Price movements are unpredictable. The irony, however, lies in the fact that without taking risks, you won't make a good winning. So to ensure these risks don't turn into losses, stop orders are placed. With a stop-loss order placed at $50, whenever the market falls to $50, or you incur losses of that value, it will automatically pull you out of a trade to prevent further damage to your capital.
Here are 4 facts about stop losses you ought to know beforehand:
1) Don't Place Mental Stop-Losses: Seeing professionals study a market in their heads and place a stop-loss in their minds, is a nice plot for a movie. In real life, this seldom plays out; and even if it does, it is due to sheer luck! Although possible, mental placements of stop orders require a lot of experience and a strong understanding of price movements. Place actual stop orders, till you are amply experienced and skilled.
2) Stop Orders Divert Your Attention: When you first enter the online trading markets, your eyes are fixated on profits. The desire to win is what brings you to foreign exchange, and 7 out of 10 times, this desire is what births losses. Stop-losses do a great job of capturing your attention to the negative side of each trade. This makes you focus more on avoiding losing money rather than chasing it.
3) Stops Ensure You Don't Get Carried Away: You are like a hot air balloon, waiting to take off, and a stop is an anchor holding you down. Getting carried away is a common trend noticed in Forex. One profit will push you to take more risks and attain another, and this cycle will go on endlessly. With a stop order in place, you avoid overinvesting and overtrading.
4) Be Precise With Stop Placement: Trading is a field of experimentation. From picking the best currency pair to finding the most profitable strategy, it's all trial and error. Most traders experiment even with stop orders! While on a good day you might escape bad trades, some days you won't. Without precise placement of these, you can suffer huge losses. Place stop-losses exactly where trends indicate a price collapse.
Be it online, stock, or CFD trading, the element of risk remains the same. A bad trade can effortlessly topple the good ones! Only with proper placement of stop-losses can you expect to emerge successfully.
