Cash Master blog provides useful reference…

April 12th, 2010 | Posted in blog review, cash master

I thought I’d take a little break from looking at online investments for this post and take a look at another blog that I often refer to.

It’s by Graham Laurie and is known as the Cash Master blog. Graham developed some software and a system for making money on horse racing.

As his experience has grown he is often asked or indeed decides for himself to try systems marketed by others. Now this may be either horse racing systems or other trading systems such as forex.

Given the number of systems that are out there and the seemingly never ending supply of new ones Graham decided some while ago to rope in some other volunteer testers to help out.

The result is that his blog is regularly updated with results of ongoing trials and as the tests end the reviewers provide a full report on how the system performed, what the final results were, the sort of response received on questions and finally whether the system is recommended for others.

In essence it provides a highly useful reference site for anyone who is looking to find a trading or horse racing system that they want to find more out about.

I should also mention that Graham has had success with the Ultimate FX Predictor forex trading system and he provides a very useful overview of the system he uses for this particular opportunity. Well worth a look if you are not having much luck yourself or are considering investing in it.

Cash Master trialling Market Raider Plus…

July 10th, 2009 | Posted in cash master, forex, graham laurie, market raider plus
Graham Laurie over at the Cash Master blog is currently trialling the Market Raider Plus software system from Ian Williams.

This is a forex system that provides alerts when to buy or sell a particular currency pair. It also indicates the stop to use and as the trade progresses all you have to do is move the stop accordingly until the trade gets stopped out.

Graham mentions that using a daily chart may be a good idea for those people who aren’t able to watch trades during the day. The signals given are clear as to when to act and as only one signal is operational at a time it should be very manageable. For those who want more action you could trade on more than a single pair. There is a 30 day money back guarantee but as Graham mentions one month may not be enough time to evaluate performance so any prospective purchaser would need to bear that in mind.

Since the trial started Graham has already tweaked a few things in how he is running the trial so it may be a few days yet before everything settles down.

So far results have been interesting and you can read the report for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday yourself. It seems that the software provides the capacity to make good gains but also limits losses to minimal amounts. It will be interesting to see how the trial progresses.

Cash Master Blog showcases two good opportunities…

March 10th, 2009 | Posted in cash master, forex, ftse wealth builder, graham laurie, ls trader

I’ve previously posted about Graham Laurie’s Cash Master Blog as a good source of information on various investment options.

Today I noticed that there were two new posts on the blog which may be of interest. For the last 3 months Graham has been trialling a service called LS Trader. This is an advisory service where you only have to spend a short time placing and subsequently monitoring the trades they advise.

As something of a caution you should note that the minimum balance recommended to trade with is £3,000. The service recommends using IG Index as a trading platform and provides ways to ensure that any amount traded can be a small percentage of the overall bank.

The other opportunity is the FTSE Wealth Builder from Neil Leitch. Graham has only just started to report on this so it is a little too early to make a totally informed decision, however, initial impressions seem very positive. The system is straightforward to use and Graham has confirmed that his selections match Neils’.

It’s also comforting to note that Neil sends out daily updates of how things performed and responds very quickly to email questions.

Both opportunities have great potential and I shall be following Grahams’ reports with interest.
