Currently Ian's favorite method for generating profits, this pure play on the US stock market requires attention for just one hour a week on Friday afternoon and is ideal for part-time traders and investors. The strategy is based on stocks making new yearly highs and lows where the signals to enter and exit positions are simple to identify and require no special skills or trading platform. In this 30-minute FREE presentation, I will give a comprehensive introduction to the strategy and share some recent real-life trades executed on my own account with the aid of marked-up charts.

Introduced in 2019, this daily swing trading strategy has consistently offered traders a steady flow of bankable profits. A pure play on the US equity market, the strategy can be traded with a geared ETF which tracks the S&P500, or by leveraging the power of E-mini futures. This offers the huge advantage of not having to screen lists of stocks looking for something to trade. During this comprehensive session, Ian Murphy will introduce the strategy and explain why it remains one of his go-to money-makers with real-life examples of recently closed trades.

Investors and traders can easily find opportunities in the stock market, but we struggle when it comes to managing our positions and knowing when it's time to get out, or when to hang in for the long haul. In this intensive 30-minute presentation, Ian Murphy will demonstrate with the aid of real-life examples how to identify when we have overstayed our welcome in a stock and it's time to exit. He will also reveal how to tell if we have a keeper on our hands, and we should commit to a long-term relationship. As usual, Mr. Murphy will deliver the class with his characteristic pithy and accessible style which will be followed by a Q&A session.

We trade the markets in hopes for profits, but the reality for inexperienced traders can be very different. Most of the time profits are there for the taking, but beginners allow gains to slip through their fingers, or grab too little too early. This leads to a downward spiral of frustration and confusion as money flows out of their account. In this presentation Ian Murphy will provide practical solutions to these difficult challenges by sharing powerful technical indicators which monetize market moves and take timely profits at appropriate levels.
