My VIP PRO Shares Service

This is a professional service for traders who can trade long or short

And in today’s bear markets, trading short is my approach of choice.

Being able to take advantage of over-priced and over-hyped shares is our way of keeping markets honest.

Members receive a Trade Alert when I have a promising setup and where I show my analysis using my Tramline methods.

We trade mainly large to medium cap US and UK issues such as:

  • Apple
  • Microsoft
  • Lloyds, Barclays
  • Amazon
  • BP, Shell
  • Diageo
  • and many more.

My VIP Shares Pro Service

As you may know, I have been writing Chart of the Week (COTW) for Interative Investor for over a year and in that time, I have used my unique tramline methods to analyse mostly FTSE 100 shares. I have been able to pinpoint many well-timed precise entry and exits on a wide variety of shares in many sectors.

In September 2016, I launched VIP PRO SHARES as a trade entry/exit service aimed at both longer-term investors and spread betters. Members receive an email Trade Alert when I have a promising setup and keep track of all open trades.

Timing of entry and exits of both investments and spread bet trades on margin is especially of critical importance.

I do not believe in just jumping in to buy a share when you feel bullish. Often, you will be getting in at a high and you will need to suffer a downturn before the uptrend resumes (if indeed it does). You need a reliable system that has proven itself over time – and that is what I have developed.

I do not believe in a ‘set and forget’ approach to investing or trading. Each investor/trader needs to review their positions regularly in today’s markets.

Of course, in a roaring bull market, as we have had since 2009, timing is really secondary because a rising tide lifts (almost) all boats. But now the game is changing and I believe a devastating bear market lies up ahead. Being nimble will be essential.

What investors (and traders) need is a responsive service that can pinpoint trend changes – and that is why I designed my tramline methods. It is remarkably successful in detecting major tops and bottoms in real time.

  • Swing trade entries and exits with recommended Warning Levels
  • Useful for spread betting and investing alike
  • Focus on large cap issues both in UK and abroad (mainly US)
  • Trade Alerts issued when I spot an opportunity to either buy or sell short
  • Estimate 5 – 15 Trade Alerts in average month
  • Will advise both long and short trades.
  • Will regularly update my analysis of FTSE and Dow indexes.

It is a pleasure to be able to give you a testimonial; it is the least I can do for the much appreciated help and guidance you have given me over the past two years.
John’s work is a revelation. His analysis is clear and advice very sensible and cautious. Now with his VIP Trade Alert service it is most timely. After two years I now would not be without it.

Since joining the VIP service 3 months ago – earlier with the Tramline service – I am constantly amazed by the sheer quality and quantity of John’s updates. They are even better than I expected. His reports are always timely and accurate, with superb graphics . The brief updates are also great to trade off quickly when the market is moving fast..
His split-bet and no loss strategies have greatly improved my trading returns.

Glad to say that I spotted that euro trade before you posted it and held it after you advised to kill it, as it hadn’t fallen to my stop. Taken half profits and have a risk free trade on the remainder, lovely.

Thanks John for inspiring me to trade this way! (3+ years in now!)
