Trading derivatives: sprinters, speeders and turbos
This site is intended for ambitious traders willing to accept large risks using leverage investment products. Tradingderivatives.eu does not apply fundamental analysis, but technical analysis instead. In short, tradingderivatives.eu follows and detects market trends. The reasons for these trends are given by the economic situations in the world's regions, but the timing of our trades are given by technical analysis only. We believe that fundamental analysis can not explain all fluctuations in the stock markets. We detect the slowest trends and follow them. We make money in both bearish and bullish markets. We show exactly what we do so you can copy us. However, we are not a bank. TradingDerivatives.eu is not accountable for your losses and profits. You remain in charge of your investments. We have a policy of full transparancy for our current positions but also on our track record.
We tweet on a regular basis about our portfolio suggestions. Also, we select the tweets of the trading community based on keywords and we retweet the most relevant ones. Hence our tweets are limited what we think is most useful to you. Tweets by @TrdngDrivatives
The differences between sprinters, speeders and turbos are marginal. Sprinters are supported by ING, speeders by the German Commerzbank and turbos by the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS). Basically, all three are financial derivatives
that enable you to borrow money for the acquiring of securities. Investing with borrowed money enables you to make much higher profits. Downside is that your losses can also be huge. Because your investments are increased with
the leverage factor high profits can be achieved. Leverage works both ways so your losses can also be considerable. Therefore, these leverage products are intended for experienced investors willing to take high risks.
Do speeders, sprinters and turbos compare to exchange traded funds? Yes and no. An exchange traded fund (ETF) is often a combination of stocks in the same ratios as a stock index. ETFs like these track a stock index. Since a stock
index contains many stocks in itself, your stock portfolio is well spread over many branches of industries - while you have the advantage of few kinds of effects in your portfolio. This gives you easy risk management. Another advantage
of ETFs is that is value is coupled to the index in a fixed ratio. As a result, companies behind ETFs have to buy and sell their ETFs constantly. Every few seconds they change their bid and sell prices with massive volumes behind
it. This means that the market is made for you. You always have an opportunity to buy or sell the ETF of your choice. This also holds for sprinters, speeders and turbos; companies behind these leverage products also 'make the market'.
If you invest in a leverage product in an index, your portfolio is just as well-balanced as if you would buy an ETF in that index.
Sprinters are maintained by ING, a large Dutch bank. ING benefits from the sprinters they offer in several ways. You pay interest on your loan. Therefore, your investment is only successful if the underlying security was more profitable
than your loan. Any invested dollar, borrowed or yours, should bring you profit and this is achieved only if, in this case, the DAX index goes up so fast that it compensates the interest on the sprinter. Other ways ING profits
from sprinters because of the difference between the sell and buy prices, the spread. This is the price difference at a given moment between the ask and bid prices of a sprinter. ING, RBS and other suppliers of leverage products
like sprinters sometimes increase the spread to reduce their risks and maximise their profits.
In short: full disclosure. Plenty of graphs show you our trades and how much you would have made if you had done the same. All kinds of analysts give advice, but it is hard to track their results. TradingDerivatives.eu gives full disclosure.
Note that the graphs also show that some trades went wrong, something other analysts and their websites try to hide.
The results presented here are based on simulations of historic data using dedicated software developed by TradingDerivatives.eu. The software contains several parameters. Our software has analysed all possible values of these parameters.
The results with the highest profits are presented on this website. It is assumed that the selected settings will give good results in the future - much like they suggested for the past. In short, the software 'detects the trend';
after all, the trend is your friend.
TradingDerivatives.eu offers you information on our transactions based on our simulations and daily developments on the exchange markets. It is up to you to follow us. You follow us at your own risk. In the future, adds and donations
may support us. TradingDerivatives.eu will not become a bank and we will not charge you if you want to follow us. You do not have to register for information on TradingDerivatives.eu. We disclose our positions for free, for always.

You will have to come back to TradingDerivatives.eu to check the funds of your interest on a daily basis. Follow our steps as quickly as possible, but build up your portfolio in a period of several weeks. We think patience is important.
Trading a long time after a suggested buy is risky, especially if you use the highest leverage. Do not go all-in at once in that case, but invest in 10 or more equal parts of your money over a period of several months. Your first
investments should not be more than a few percent of your fortune. Just let your sprinters develop for half a year or more and see what happens; after half a dozen years this small fraction of your fortune has become as large as
the rest. When that happens, you are ready to reconsider your strategy.
Below you find the table of our last transactions.
