Now that brokers have to confess just how few of their clients make money (it's not 49%) it's 15% often, trading is truly a dirty word.

Take this broker tweet:

I am glad they have to disclose it. But the problem remains:

  1. brokers use in house 'educators' who are not professional regulated traders and so brokers continue to be dishonest
  2. brokers once they game the client acquisition entry form to get the client in (except a few they must show the regulator they rejected) they do not monitor to the size and speed of losses - a key indicator of unsuitability

That's a shame given my second book was published by the Financial Times and called 'Trading Online' but disreputable and even those claiming to be reputable brokers have killed the word and the market. Like journalists, the majority have spoiled it for the few good ones.

Our hedge fund trades. Like most hedge funds. We have Sovereign Wealth Fund as an investor as well as the usual pension funds, family offices and high net worths. We are reputable and regulated and of course do not have retail clients.

Or take trading by the likes of Winton Capital. This slide explains in simple terms what a reputable respected hedge fund like them does in trading.

Given our style of trading is not the hyper fast, but more like in the image below where our algorithms tell us such trends, I propose to call it Fast Investing rather than trading.

Why not just buy and hold investing like Buffett? Well, we like to profit from falling markets too for one thing.

But the bigger point is trading has begun to mean mindless churning. It's not what professionals do. Investing has, thanks to Buffett, a good name. We are at the trading end, but we are Fast Investing! And in a volatile world of tweets moving markets let alone Brexit - it's a good job too not to be locked in too long.

Our favourite products are those that trend - including Crypto - up or down, smoothly as possible. Our favourite time frames - well see the image above.
