Hello there 🙂
My name’s Chris Brodie and I am the founder of Tradingspike.com
I have built this website to show you how I trade Penny Stocks before they Spike successfully, and show you what’s possible when you educate and discipline yourself to trade with a consistent strategy and set of rules. ~This is the beginning of my trading career as I write this by the way! (August/September 2015)
“Oh and by the way, I am NOT an expert I am a complete newbie to the penny stock world!!”
I want to show you that it’s possible to grow a small account into exponential income with a consistent strategy and professional teacher and mentor like Timothy Sykes.
Hey I could fall flat on my face also, but lets see what happens! 🙂
A little bit about me
I am British and live in the United Kingdom… And Yes Great Britain Rocks to all you English no likers so no knocking!
It’s the Politics and Governments that suck as always!
Any hows I’ve always been excited by the stock market and business’s in general, starting from the young age of 12, but never started investing with real money until my late 20’s.
Honestly I didn’t have a clue what I was doing back then and never really made much money, mostly because I had no consistent plan or successful trainer that I believed in or looked up to.
I was young, dumb and stupid and now fortunately I’m still young and just a little less stupid!
Now that I am wiser and know what I want I am finally moving forwards.
I enjoy many things in life, but the main reason why I’m trading penny stocks is to create freedom to spend time with family and friends so I don’t have to spend it working for anybody else… EVER, unless I really want to of course.
The reality is we all need money to survive in order to pay bills and enjoy our own luxuries in life.
At the moment I have a day job working as a courier driver for UK Mail 5/6 days a week or around 60+ hours a week. 🙁
I made my first trade just the other day which was a flop 🙁 boo hoo. ~ Learning curve 🙂
I’ve started my trading account with just over £900($1,400 approx) just to get going, but will top this up to £2000($3,000 approx) when I’ve got the money.
NEWS FLASH I have stopped using my crappy English broker and now in the process of setting up my account with possibly the best penny stock broker for UK investors. I will give a proper review on them soon.
So Whats this Website For?
Most of all I’ve created this website to be 100% transparent by keeping things accountable with my trades, as well as network with like minded people and inspire others to do the same whilst sharing the success and inspiration. Pun intended! 😉
Why Trade Penny Stocks?
There are 2 Main reasons why I Love to trade Penny Stocks and why they are the Best Stocks To Trade in my opinion.
The #1 best reason to trade penny stocks is that you don’t need a large account to get started.
Trading Blue Chip stocks such as the likes of Apple or Google are a waist of your time unless you already have millions to invest or your happy to hold for years, in the hope that you make at least 10% on your investment over a period of a few years!…Screw that!!
Here’s an Example:
The Small Cap Penny Stocks
If XYZ stock is at $1 a share and you invest $1000(1000 shares) in that stock, it then goes to $2 and you sell your 1000 shares, then you’ve just made $1000 Profit while only investing $1000 or a 100% gain/return in percentage terms of your investment.
The Blue Chip Giant Stocks
If ABC stock is at $100 a share and you invest $1000(10 shares) in that stock, it then goes to $102 and you sell your 10 shares, then you’ve just made $20 Profit! Yipppeeee! :/…minus commission fees!
The only way to make decent money on blue chip stocks is to have a big account or to hold for many many years to come, in the hope that it keeps going in the direction you want it to!
The #2 best reason to trade penny stocks is that most of the time penny stocks are predictable as to what happens next, with regards to news, press releases and earnings winners. When you are prepared, you’ve done your homework and know the right chart patterns, the odds of success are very favorable.
So Join The Ride
You are welcome to follow and join the ride and share your thoughts or ideas. Just to finish off here, my aim is to have fun mastering the skill of trading penny stocks and fine tune a set of strategies and skills that will create freedom for me so that I can seriously enjoy life with my family and friends and do all the things I want to do.
I hope I inspire you to do the same.
