Hussein Sayed joined us on the podcast to lend his wisdom on equities trading. He shared his thoughts on some of the similarities and differences between trading vs investing in equities. We asked him whether a forex trader could invest in blue chip stocks as a side project to build a personal pension and at what timeframe trading becomes investing.

Mikey, a young trader from the UK emailed the show with some questions on trading and we answered where we could and admitted that in places we didn’t have the answer. We have promised to get a suitable guest on the show who can provide the analysis he needs!

We love to hear from fans of the show: if you have a question that you would like to ask us please email us at
