Why you should pick your trades wisely

The majority of retail traders do not pick their trades wisely. They tend to consider the random nature of this market and place a trade on any setup. When you are spread betting, keep in mind that picking your trade is imperative to ensuring your profit. It is like picking the right fruit to eat. If you are in a market and there are lots of sellers calling on you to buy their fruits, you have to understand that not all of them are going to offer you the same quality fruits. Do not think…

Things that you should know as a full-time trader

There are many professions in the world which you can do in order to earn your living. You might have the best education from the best university but still, after doing all the hard word, there is no guarantee that you will be paid well from your job place.

However, if you look at smart people in the United Kingdom then you will notice that most of them have started forex trading as their part…

Social media in the workplace

In recent years, the use of social media has grown rapidly, both in the personal context and within the workplace. There are millions of worldwide users on various social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn and the law is uncertain, as it struggles to keep up with this developing area.

Greetings everyone!

Allow me to give you a brief introduction of who I am. I started my professional life as a Pilot in Indian Air Force after education and training at Defence Academy and Flight Academy.

The changing…

Data Protection: Using Employee Photos and Personal Details Online and in Marketing Materials

We increasingly see photographs and personal information about directors and employees both on websites and in marketing materials. This could also include company Facebook pages and other social networking sites.

A word of caution...

Under the Data Protection Act 1998, photos, names and work histories of employees are considered to be "personal data".  This information can only be used for the…

Inappropriate use of Facebook! Do you have a Social Media Policy?

I attended a Mock Employment Tribunal earlier this week. The grounds of the claim were age discrimination, victimisation and harassment.  The claimant was claiming against his employer AND against his line manager personally.

Ultimately, the claimant failed in some elements of his claim but won in one, with an award against his employer and - surprisingly - against his line manager personally.  That would…

Divorce - the Collaborative Approach...

Collaborative Law is a relatively new approach aimed at helping separating or divorcing couples. I trained as a Collaborative lawyer because the collaborative approach to family law made a lot of sense to me and many clients agree.
