Brokers

Where to trade online is an important part of trading. I have tried many different brokers and services.

I finally ended up with a couple of brokers I prefer to use. Each broker has it's own strengths that give me reason to use them.

I recommend the following brokers and services:
  • Markets.com (CFDs) This is my affiliate link
  • Etoro.com (Cryptos, ETFs and CFDs) This is my affiliate link
  • Coinbase (Crypto) This is my affiliate link

Markets.com


Markets.com is a CFD broker. I recommend them for the following reasons:
  • Regulated broker
  • Wide range of CFDs on forex pairs, cryptos, indices, commodities, shares, etfs and bonds
  • Easy to use trading platforms (web-based and mobile)
  • Negative balance protection. Read this post as to why negative balance protection is desired sometimes.
  • Small position trading is possible
Best for trading!

    Invest like a trader

    Here is my book: "Invest like a trader". I finally decided to create this book based on my blog and experience investing, trading and coding. It is an introduction to my view on investing. For the next few days you can get a free copy on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2JjwQqj

    This book is for you if you are an investor looking to learn a more trading-like approach to investing. Buy and hold investing has become buy and pray investing, with countless sleepless nights. A more trading-like approach to investing puts you back into control of your investments and it can be a lot of fun. After reading this book you should be more able to build and grow your investment account consistently.

    Let me know what you think after reading the book. You can contact me via email or on social media. Even better, you can leave a review on Amazon.

    Why I am a trader and investor and why you might wanna be one too

    I am a coder by day and trader by night! Coding is my day job. I am fully aware that only having a job will not allow me to provide for my family and myself consistently in the long run. This is because most of the western societies are setup in a way to be more and more disadvantageous towards the working middle class.

    Why I buy Gold and Silver

    I own crypto currencies, because I have come to the conclusion that money as we know it today is no longer sustainable. I have come to this conclusion during the crisis of 2008. At that time I had the intuition / the gut feeling something was wrong not only with our financial system, but more specifically with our money. It took a few years of researching and investigating until I figured it out. The thing is, part of me did not want to believe it was true. And for a long time I did not act upon the intuition and knowledge I had. That changed last year when I decided to put my money where my mouth is and I started to accumulate crypto currencies. Cryptos align perfectly with my expertises: coding and trading. So I went for it... And with success.

    Now I want to diversify my holdings more by adding Gold and Silver to it. I buy Gold and Silver as a hedge or insurance against the undwindled money printing of all of the governments / central banks of the world. Money, or actually, currenc…
