LONDON, July 15, 2011 -


When it comes to financial trading, spread betting expert Sandy
is a strong believer in keeping things straightforward. “I
don’t believe that the markets are random,” states the Chief
Technical Analyst of City Index ( href="www.cityindex.co.uk/">www.cityindex.co.uk/).
“I believe that you can use simple tools to extract regular profits
from the markets. Whenever I use complex strategies I lose money
and when I use simple strategies I make money.”

With this in mind, here are five tools to simplify your
financial trading.

Stop losses

Stop losses limit your downside potential by automatically
closing a spread bet as soon as the market passes your chosen
trigger value. Guaranteed stop loss orders are more efficient risk
management tools than standard stop loss orders, as they guarantee
to close your trade at the exact trigger value you have set,
regardless of market gapping.

Mobile trading

With many markets available to trade 24 hours a day, href="www.cityindex.co.uk/trading-platform/mobile-trading-platform.aspx">
mobile trading is an effective way to keep in touch with - and
react to - the spread betting and CFD trading markets. Last
year City Index’s City Trading™ mobile app was voted FT and
Investor’s Chroncile Innovation of the Year and Best Mobile Trading
Platform by Shares Magazine.
