Well, I’ve hit a real milestone here. 100000 plays of my material on Soundcloud. I’ve been on there from the start and have seen this site grow into probably the most influential music site in the world. I’ve been approaching this figure for a while and thought it apt to do a little celebration post. Years ago, when I did lot of live sets in some big clubs and indeed smaller venues, I never usually played to more than 1000 people in the same room. The internet revolution has changed the music industry. I am totally amazed that it has give me the chance to showcase my material to such a vast number of worldwide listeners. FOr sure, I’m not at the top of the pile for number of listeners – bigger DJs get 100000 plays on an individual track over the course of a week – but for little ole me – 100000 is a nice figure. In addition to my personal page, I run several group son Soundcloud, the most notable ones being the Shuffle DJ Mixes group (22700 DJ Mixes) and also the Wales Soundcloud which showcases all forms of music across my adopted homeland. I’ve met lots of people through Soundcloud and it gives me great encouragement as an artist to be able to get feedback from fans and listeners. I’ve noticed some changes in Soundcloud as it’s grown. There is currently a bit of a trend against DJs on there and they are turning in their droves to other services such as Mixcloud. But Soundcloud is where the listeners tend to be (On my Mixcloud I only have 1000 plays and am keen to build up an audience there as well. http://mixcloud.com/wezg ). Across my own website I use Soundcloud embeds to play the music. It is a truly versatile service and I hope it continues to grow so that my audience can continue expanding. Total global domination is a real possibility! Let’s see how soon I can get to a million listeners! Please help out and keep spreading the love! http://soundcloud.com/wezg
Well, it was just one summer of speculation too far… After a cracking year of retained services at Liverpool we finally lost our talismanic striker, Luis Suarez, to the grandeur of the Catalan giants, Barcelona. It was a difficult summer… What with the failure of the homegrown boys to get anywhere in the tournament, Luis went for one bite more than he could chew….AGAIN. His behaviour brought shame to our club for not the first time, even though his bite on the Italian, Giorgio Chiellini, was committed in his national colours of Uruguay. He was facing a lengthy ban from not just international football but would have been absent for the first few months of our domestic season. After his early World Cup bath, he started to chew on some humble pie, apologising for the shameful incident, just enough for his proposed move to Barca to go through… With all the release clause details having been clarified when he signed a new contract last year, all Barca had to do was come in with the necessary coin. Luis parted company with Liverpool to the tune of £75 million, netting us just over £50 million in profit. I was hoping he’d stay on, especially as we now have the desired Champions League football that Luis himself so desired. His goals last year were special and I cannot see how anyone can bag so many from such a varied amount of positions. He was an individual player and I feel he was ‘on the rise’ so to speak, as a professional world-beating striker…. in Liverpool colours. In four seasons at Liverpool he bagged 69 goals in 110 appearances, a strong record, making him among our most prolific ever goal-scorers. As much as I wanted him to stay, I can see exactly why Brendan Rodgers has moved on and got rid. Luis’ behaviour does no good to the reputation of Liverpool. one bad incident is provocative enough but it is clear from experience that Luis has issues which make him a liability. Could we afford the repercussions of his next misdemeanour? Is it possible to reach the heights of a football club when your star player is banned for several months each season? It could be argued that were last season’s ban not in place we would have won the league comfortably. Close season after close season of transfer speculation is just too…
Well, it’s been a perfect start. We have spent a good week at the top of the league and are now level on points with Spurs and Arsenal with them having played one game more than us. Three 1-0s. Ok, not the best for the fingernails, but three clean sheets, nonetheless, and 9 points out of a possible 9. We’ve been playing good football, Sturridge, in particular, has been shining and the defence looks excellent. Mignolet has made a last minute penalty save to keep us with a victory, Toure has looked exceptional, his experience shining through. OK, there’s been a few injuries, but the last minute signings of two quality defenders, should keep us in good stead. We’ll miss Johnson, though Kelly will be good cover for him while he’s out for the next month or two. We have our secret weapon, in Suarez, soon to return, and hopefully increase our firepower by dividends. He’ll be back for the league cup tie at Old Trafford, and let’s hope we can make it back-to-back victories against the Septics. We are here to challenge this season and I can honestly see us going all the way. A tough fixture next up, away to Swansea, though they’ve had a poor start. Our next big challenge in the league isn’t till we face Arsenal away at the start of November. It’s all to play for, of course, and let’s not get carried away, but a perfect start to our campaign, it’s been, and let’s keep it rolling! YNWA.
I had been trading blind, really. I’d been following the trends on the brokers’ websites. These graphs aren’t detailed enough to analyse properly. After scouting around a bit I found the IBFX MT4 platform which was free to install. You get much more detailed graphs of the stock, which you can extend back in time and scale to whatever time frame you like. The graphs which are most useful for traders are Japanese Candlestick charts. As illustrated above, these charts comprise of little bars, either green or red, showing up or down and according to scale they show the stocks highs and lows for each scale unit. Whatever platform you use for your charts, make sure you can draw lines etc on it, so that you can visualise the actual trends. As for analysing the graphs, perhaps the experts know far more than a mere novice such as myself. I needed to research what patterns to look for and I found this excellent Visual Training Guide from Fennelly And Co Ltd. It’s in pdf format and can be seen here http://media.wix.com/ugd/56d156_d58ad5d3f2bd4d4e84cbf60acbbd4a22.pdf As you can see, it gets quite complicated. But now I guess, by putting these techniques into practice I can be on the way to generating my own signals. I’ll be on the lookout for flag and pennant formations. And be in the money, for sure!
I woke up feeling refreshed and keen to learn more about Binary Options. I set up accounts with three other brokers. I was trying to get the new robot I’d purchased working but couldn’t link it up to my accounts. The glowing lines on the trading graphs enticed me in and I couldn’t wait to start making money. I got involved. Automatically I was chasing losses. I started betting on silly things like one minute expiries and losing cash quickly. At the touch of the button you can fry your money so easily. I discovered what doubling up did and when s trade started initially going in the wrong direction, I thought it’s OK, it will turn, I’ll just take a better price now and double up. I was going in at $100 a trade. With the new brokers I’d got between 50% and 100% signup bonuses so there was plenty of funds to play with. I looked into these bonuses and apparently you can’t withdraw until you’ve completed 20 times the bonus amount in trade volume, so it is a bit of a con… JUST WATCH OUT! I realised I knew very little and needed help. I’d been hearing a lot about signals and after a bit of surfing, found what seemed a reputable firm, promising 75% success rates. For $14, I got a 14 day trial period of texts to my phone and emails, advising me what options to take. I thought I had it sealed and started backing the signals, but only about 33% of them were proving successful. After a long and frustrating day where I was chasing losses from the start, I finally exhausted literally all my money. In two days of trading I had lost £800 (about $1200), more if you include the bonuses that had disappeared also. I felt depressed and saddened, but I was still keen on this new line of work. I know that money can be made on these markets. I just had to do my research. It was back to the drawing board. I wouldn’t be able to trade for real money for a week or two when my bank funds allowed it. I thought I’d use my time wisely and plan and research. One of the earliest ideas that came to me was to create this website. I had hoards of emails flying in and was surfing the…
Well – what next? In my trawling the web I cam across the idea of automatic trading. Out there on the market there were robots that automatically controlled your trading platform and bet using their signals on your account. They were offering amazing payouts, and you literally had to do nothing. Just sit back and relax and watch your money roll in. It sounded a bit too good to be true but this was a cake I wanted in on. I settled about the Binary Trading Robot from http://jvz8.com/c/134504/44001 It cost $47 with paypal and offered a 60 day money back guarantee if you weren’t satisfied. I had a good look and looking at the videos, it was clear that the site’s owner, Jerry Biener, had a huge profit showing in his trading account… Over a million dollars… I wanted in on the action. I started setting the product up and to do so had to sign up to a new trading platform using the site’s links. I would need to invest more money to set this thing going. I set up with Trader XP and deposited £200 which was matched by a £100 signup bonus. I am still waiting for the accounts to be linked so cannot start trading just yet with the robot. I will let you know how I progress with this. I have read mixed reviews on the net about robots with many claiming it is a scam but also there are stories of people turning good profits. I do hope it works. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbFkTjKEjYs
