Want to make money? No genuinely...

Ok, so those who know me - will also know that I'm partial to a bit of day trading on the AIM markets.  I see them as a relatively high risk, high reward way of making some returns on your savings.  In fact, I measured my success for 2015 and I made a relatively modest increase of 15%, beat that in any bank account at 0.05% interest these days!!

Anyway, 15% isn't going to make you rich (or certainly not in the near term anyway!).

What I hooked into most recently though is a way to get 88% growth on your initial capital, 75%-85% of the time!

I know there are doubters, to be honest the amount of schemes I've tried over the years, that all claim to make you rich really quickly (and yes, there are a few!) - none of them really work - in fact most are designed to make the person recommending them rich and nothing more.

So here is how it works and here is how you stack the odds in your favour...

The concept is simple, you have two options - you can 'Call' or you can 'Put'.  To call suggests you know that the stock price of a certain item will increase over the next 60 seconds, and to Put means the price will drop over the next 60 seconds.

If the price is higher than when you said call, you double your money.  If it's lower when you said Put, well you guessed it, you double your money.

Right from the offset, you literally have a 50:50 chance of winning.  Not bad odds to start with right?

But how about this, if you can identify the ceilings and the floors of a stock, you can then predict when they're going to bounce back the opposite way.

Here are some examples of what I achieved last week, starting with a basic investment of £250 at 7pm, trading on the USD.


As you can see by 7:50pm I was up to £878.14.  The aim is to keep your bets small, whilst keeping your growth consistent.


7:51pm, in 60 seconds I topped it up to £1,103.74


And by 8:14 I was up to £1,379.74.

I think a salary of just over £1k per hour isn't too shabby personally, how about you?

The best thing about it all, is that these trades are 100% tax free... So don't worry about your ISAs or CGT being affected!

Check out IQOption in order to setup an account - (http://iqoption.com/)

From there, simply drop in your deposit and start trading.

I'd advise you start small, nice easy bids, don't get too greedy too quickly and most certainly do not bid with emotion - only bid with your head.

Best of luck everyone, also I really want to help others reach this kind of financial freedom - so if you're interested to learn and have the time get in touch - I want to hear your results too!!

All the best!

Note/Disclaimer.
Obviously I'm not to be held responsible for your investment decisions, only invest what you can afford to lose, don't get greedy, set yourself limits.  I am recommending this because it has been extremely successful for me but you should not hold me responsible if you're not able to receive a return.

When the water stops...

An interesting analogy was presented to me recently and I liked it so much that I thought I'd share it with others...  
We go about our daily lives, almost with an element of ignorance, in that we generally take no appreciation of the day-to-day services we consume, use or even provide.  
We're woken up in the morning by our alarm clock - We don't sit back and think about the labourers working in the power stations nor do we think about the components that form the intricate circuits within the box that we so abruptly hit and shout at.  We then proceed to take a shower, where we pass no regard for the Gas stations, the circuit designs, the electricity, the water, the purification, the plumbing, the drainage, the glass blowing... and on and on and on.  
My point here isn't that we don't care about these things...but more so that we've developed into a nation that take these luxuries for granted - and so when we go to sleep we expect to be woken up, when we get in the shower we expect hot water.  
...When is the only time you notice these luxuries...when they don't work as we expect them too...
A friend of mine introduced me to this mindset and quite rightly so, it starts your mind thinking about things - but the most interesting element I found was that this mindset links directly to the IT industry and the new Cloud era that we sit in.  
Customers that I speak to don't care where the system is, they don't care how it works and they don't care what happens in the transit between us, and them - all they care about is when I turn on the tap...I get my water.   When I want to consume my IT, it just works. 
I love this thought process but it does highlight one fairly obvious concern to me, when the plumbing fails - you have to be sure your supply can be resumed.  Be sure to guarantee your service can be constant, even when it's not. 
So, I ask you firstly to spare a thought for the providers that we often forget about and expect to deliver.  
Then, make sure that you vet your supply.  If infrastructure is critical to your business - when the tap stops dripping - how fast can you be back up and running...

Seen Software (SaaS), Infrastructure (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)? Try Desktop (DaaS), Metal (MaaS) and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS)

It's no secret that the public cloud market has been growing like wildfire. In fact, a recent Gartner study found spending on public cloud services is growing at more than 28% per year and private cloud spending is three times that of public cloud!  That suggests total cloud spending in 2016 to hit £155 billion.
The focus in the industry over the past few years has been on the core cloud management services of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS.  But to truly understand how cloud computing is evolving you have to dive deeper below the surface.  Two major developments are driving the evolution of cloud: Management and Specialisation.
In the management space, innovations like self-service portals have given end-users a much-preferred way to request and consume their services.  Whereas specialist and dedicated professionals, have developed enterprise solutions with technologies like Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View and Nvidia GRID.  
Three specialist areas that have developed as part of natural market progression, are DRaaS, MaaS & DaaS - but what are they?

MaaS

MaaS - the dynamic provisioning and deployment of whole physical servers, as opposed to the provisioning of virtual machines - is a drastically underrated cloud service.  MaaS services will finally open the floodgates to allow any application to be run in the cloud – any application with any service level.  That means multi-tiered apps with a backend Oracle database, home grown, performance-intensive applications, low latency trading applications, etc. 
It’s been hard for people to pay attention to MaaS, mostly because server virtualisation has been “the shiny new toy” over the past few years and frankly MaaS is not an easy thing to provide. But that may change once IT administrators see the speed, scalability, agility and simplicity with which they can deploy and protect their underlying server infrastructure.
The statistics are clear – a large percentage of servers have been virtualized in the enterprise (40% - 50% now and heading to 60% - 70%). However, there are still a large number of applications that remain running on bare metal. That important (and underappreciated) fact means that MaaS could be a key ingredient to driving more widespread adoption of cloud technology.

DRaaS

Over the past few years, IT departments have had to live in a culture of cost reduction – it’s just been the way of life.  That culture has resulted in aging equipment, overworked staff and lots of cut corners - a perfect recipe for higher failure rates.  The fact is that hardware failure and human error are still the leading causes of unplanned outages - but devastating storms and other catastrophes are also forcing businesses to get serious about geographic disaster recovery planning.  Some estimates put 2014 weather related disaster costs at almost £70 billion worldwide, up 25% from 2013. 

DaaS

Desktop management is a fundamental service for IT organisations.  It’s critical for keeping the employees of a company productive. But there have been long standing challenges with managing the traditional desktop.  The investment in desktop hardware can be a significant capital expense, especially for large organisations and day-to-day management of these devices can be a huge drain on resources.
DaaS solutions are secure, cost-effective, easy-to-use and portable – you can get the same desktop on any device.
According to the 451 Research Group, “Interest in third-party DaaS is at fever pitch.” IT consumerisation, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) initiatives, increase in mobile workers, Windows 8 migrations and Security/IP concerns are driving organisations to reevaluate their desktop strategy.
So, if you're not looking at IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS...make sure you've seen DRaaS, DaaS & MaaS.
