Getting your finances in shape for the new financial year Noel Whittaker

It is just three months to the federal election and Australia is still suffering deficit budgets.

Room 1
Trading truths Brent Penfold
IndexTrader $20

So you’d like to become a successful trader working from home, earning a fair income for your fair effort? Is this possible? Yes, it certainly is. However the more important question to ask is whether it is possible for you, and unfortunately the probable answer is no.

In this Workshop professional trader Brent Penfold will tell you how it is. Brent will reveal where the true nuggets of wisdom in successful trading exist. You’ll learn the answers are not contained in any glossy brochure, not in any impressive charting program, nor on any psychologist’s couch. You’ll learn success in trading is not defined by a perfect entry or exit technique or perfect trading strategy … no … the truths are far simpler than that.

This is a must attend Workshop for all - whether you’re new to the markets or experienced, you will gain from knowing exactly how steep the climb is to successful trading. A climb that many may decide is too steep to contemplate, while for those willing to commit, a climb worth enduring to enjoy the rich rewards that come with reaching the summit.

How to select safe stocks that are most likely to outperform the market Colin Nicholson
Building Wealth Through Shares $20

For most people, selecting stocks seems like a lottery as on all sides, experts give often contradictory advice. Moreover, most inexperienced investors find analysing the accounts of a company to be intimidating, confusing and almost like a mystic art.

Colin Nicholson has been selecting stocks for 45 years and has developed a method that is simple to understand and requires only basic accounting concepts.

He will show you how you can find and assess stocks that provide a margin of safety, while having the potential to outperform the market by providing a growing stream of dividends and growth in capital.

The next 30 years is going to be a lot different to the past and this session will empower you with realistic expectations, a new mindset and a template for your own investing/trading strategy. Marcus will also discuss the various techniques you will need to survive the highs and lows of “The New” stock and property markets.

An hour with Marcus with the opportunity to fire questions at him, would normally cost hundreds of dollars, but the Trading & Investing Expo have made it possible to for just $20.

Room 1
Trading psychology - mastering yourself first Alan Hull
ActVest $20

The biggest obstacle we all face when trading financial markets is ourselves. We hold on to losing positions when we should sell them and we sell winning positions when we should hold them.

The reason for this is because our basic instincts are designed to protect us from being eaten by saber tooth tigers, not make us successful traders.

So if we want to consistently take profits from the markets then we need to recognise these internal obstacles and learn to overcome them. And that’s exactly what you’re going to do in this brand new 1 hour Workshop with Alan where you’ll discover that mastering the markets means mastering yourself first.

Room 2
Finding money in the market with Fibonacci Jody Ellis
Investor Centre $20

Fibonacci lived in the 13th century but his universal ratios have been found in everything from the design of the pyramids to the patterns of Galaxies. We are even designed with Fibonacci ratios. So it’s no wonder we see Fibonacci in our markets – a uniquely artificial structure that emulates our behaviour.

Jody Elliss, one of Australia’s lead analysts, reveals the secrets of Fibonacci in our current markets during this 1 hour Workshop. He’ll explain how he uses Fibonacci to make money from the market and finish with his forecast for 2013/2014 using Fibonacci techniques. This is a unique opportunity not to be missed!

Room 2
Computerised auto trading systems Jody Ellis
Investor Centre $20

In today’s fast moving world of finance and advancing technologies, computerised trading is no longer limited to high dollar professionals. The move towards shorter time frames is a result of high volatility and uncertain times but it begets higher volatility. Computer trading is in essence – volatility trading. Risk is limited by fast-acting stop losses and rewards are high where a market moves in a sustained direction.

However, computer trading does not conform to the old laws of risk and reward for performance. It requires high frequency, computer algorithms that seek opportunities in the market pace and act on them automatically, on the traders behalf. They work on unusual laws of accuracy versus frequency of trade, where they may make a number of small losing trades and be balanced by a single large winning trade, bending the need for high accuracy in trading.

In this 1 hour Workshop, Jody Elliss - one of Australia’s leading Market Analysts will run through some of the requirements and foundations for computerised trading. He will also supply a number of working computerised systems that can be deployed by the average person with minimal cost. This is a must for anyone who is interested in computerised or high frequency trading and uses technology currently available to Australian Traders to make money on a regular basis in the market.

Add 20 to 50% per annum to your investment portfolio Jody Ellis
Investor Centre FREE

Stocks spend the majority of the year in a passive mode with short spurts of uptrend. In the mean time they stand exposed to an unstable market in uncertain times. CFD’s offer an excellent point of insurance where losses tend towards 0 and significant profits can be made on stocks throughout the year.

In this Exhibitor Seminar, using simple to follow profiling techniques, Jody Elliss, one of Australia’s leading analysts and traders will show how to defend your portfolio against uncertain times and add significantly to your worth and income for the year – a critical aim for anyone who holds stocks in the market.

A new way to invest in property – development profits through crowd-funding Marc & Anthony
SMSF Property FREE

Since the borrowing rules for self-managed super funds (SMSF) changed in 2007, an increasing number of funds have started to purchase direct property. However there is a new way to consider property investment, as a manufacturing model; one of our investors recently termed this an “active passive” investment.

We will explore the property investment options for SMSF, and discuss why the legacy model of investing is broken.

Marc and Anthony will also explain why there is so much profit in property development since the GFC, why having no debt in a property development substantially reduces the risk and how the internet is making it easier for investors to make profits previously only available to developers.
