Guidance is given on basic areas such as a trading set-up and how to avoid technological issues, through to more advanced subjects such as assessing which trading strategies work best and which entry points provide the best risk/reward ratios, as well as avoiding specific danger points which will help to eradicate costly losses. There are also statistics, compiled over many hours, that reveal high-odds trading opportunities.
